Originally from Southern Virginia, Jonathan came to North Carolina in 2002 to study dance. After a short-lived yet fulfilling dance career, he transitioned into retail sales and service. He made Charlotte his permanent home in 2013 and started his real estate business shortly thereafter. When he is not working, you can find Jonathan eating at one of Charlotte’s fantastic restaurants, hanging out at a dog bar with his two rescued pups, or teaching dance fitness classes.

Jonathan’s love of the home buying and selling process is exceeded only by his love of people. His passion for helping others realize their goals coupled with his extensive background in sales and service make Jonathan an easy choice to suit your real estate needs.
