After college, Jon followed his fascination with real estate into a career as an appraiser. He loved learning what a property was worth and why. For a decade he appraised commercial properties of all types, specializing in local investment portfolios and income-producing assets. When he felt that career was becoming more about the paperwork than the property, Jon decided to transition to a career that put him solidly back on the ground of actual real estate again. He completed an MBA degree at Oakland University and joined the Thomas Duke Company.
As a broker, Jon brings an appraiser’s eye to commercial real estate in Oakland County. With an appraiser’s attention to detail, he sees a property’s hidden potential—the value others might overlook. He also sees how a particular property can be put to best use in a complex, changing market. Put another way, Jon can see both the individual trees and the forest around them.
From experience in his previous role, Jon understands how important it is to be trustworthy to clients who have a lot riding on a real estate transaction. As an Oakland County resident whose clients are his neighbors, he wouldn’t have it any other way.
