In our latest edition of W Agents to Watch we are excited to feature Jonathan Bruington!
Born and raised in Sonoma County, Jonathan Bruington grew up in a family with deep ties to the local Sonoma, Napa, and Mendocino County real estate markets. So it’s no surprise he felt drawn to the industry and ultimately closed over 20 transactions representing over $14 million in sales during his first full year in real estate – while still in college! His stats are impressive but he’s also one of the most genuine and kind agents you’ll come across in the business. Continue reading to see why Jonathan ultimately made the jump from Finance to Real Estate and his must-visit spot in Sonoma County.
Why did you choose to pursue a career in real estate?
As I was going through college working towards a degree in finance, I quickly realized that a career with more personal interaction and hands-on elements attracted me. I felt that, after already growing up in the industry, real estate would be a perfect fit to combine both the human interaction I sought with the financial literacy I had been working to obtain. I could not be happier with the choice and have both a passion for real estate and love for the opportunity to develop relationships with my clients beyond the transaction.
