BrokerJonathan moved to Sunriver in 2011 but has vacationed here since childhood and fell in love with the landscape. He enjoys all the seasons and the outdoor activities they offer. From mountain biking, hiking/backpacking, paddling the rivers and lakes, fishing, snowboarding, nordic skiing right out of his driveway; the possibilities are endless. Jonathan says “Sharing all this with my wife and kids is really special. This is a great place to raise a family. All four of our kids have or do attend the great local K-8 school. I love the small town vibe and the real sense of community.” Jonathan spent 15 years working for Starbucks Coffee Company managing a handful of stores between the Portland area and Bend. He resigned in 2015 to stay at home with his four sons; the youngest of which will start kindergarten in the fall. Jonathan brings with him a deep understanding of the connection between trust and the client experience. Jonathan is passionate about helping others start their own Central Oregon chapter of their lives. Jonathan and his family rented from Village Properties when they first arrived in Sunriver. They then bought their current home with Mark , the principal broker for Village Properties. Jonathan says, “I can confidently recommend Mark to anyone. Mark has helped multiple family and friends of ours buy and sell homes since. And now I’m proud to work alongside Mark and all the hardworking people at Village Properties.”
