About Jon Becker:
A little about myself... I was born and raised in Mid-West Michigan (Big Rapids area) and have lived in that area and Northern Lower Michigan (Gaylord/Traverse City) all of my life. I graduated from Big Rapids High School and then attended Ferris State University in Business and Hospitality Management programs. From there I found myself in an unexpected but long and fulfilling career in management for McDonald's Restaurants for 16 years. McDonald's consistently taught me new and rewarding things not only about business but people and how to truly satisfy customers and be successful personally and professionally. I worked at every level from entry-level management to 10 years at the General Manager and Area Supervisor levels.
When I made my decision to pursue new challenges professionally I went looking into another career I had always had a passion for and interest in and that was real estate. Within a very short time, I found my new home at CENTURY 21 with a wonderful team of people where I again consistently learn and try to improve myself and build new relationships and friendships. I believe that the more I can learn of every aspect of my job and the market area the better I can satisfy my clients and customers. Going out every day I know that it is my reputation and future on the line let alone the happiness I receive knowing that I have happy and satisfied clients/customers as well as new friends! I also hold myself to a higher standard of real estate education to further and better assist my clients. I currently hold NAR's ( National Association of Realtors) Green Designation, Short Sale Foreclosure Resource certification (SFR), Cartus relocation & USAA Movers certified, Accredited Buyers Representative ( ABR), and Century 21 Quality Service Award winner (6 years running) - rated 95%-%98%+ by my clients & customers! I also average my sellers 5-7+% more in average sales price than the local MLS average = more $$$ for my clients!!! I am Technology savvy and try to maintain the current trends and updates to continually give my clients top-notch service including getting my website to rank very highly on Google & Bing, marketing your homes and properties on over 800+ websites + blogging sites, social media and more. My website www.c21jb.com also ranks in the top 2% in the world for Point 2 Agent real estate websites and the Top 1 % in the world for marketing.
I have been a resident of the Traverse City area for 15 years now and I have never felt more at home. What a beautiful area to live and offers a mass of entertainment and recreational opportunities.
When I am not busy working with my buyers and sellers to obtain their real estate goals I enjoy the outdoors & nature. Anything from rollerblading, biking, camping, hunting, golf, viewing wildlife and taking photographs of the scenery to relaxing at home, movies, music, dining out with friends, etc. I value great friends, professional working relationships and my wonderful family. Though currently single I do have a close family and two wonderful nieces that are like my own and enjoy making improvements to my personal residence inside and out.
I hope this gives you a brief insight to me. Please feel free to contact me anytime whether you are considering buying or selling Traverse City area real estate, I look forward to hearing from and working with You!!!

Jon Becker did a fabulous job of getting to know what we were looking for, and then recommending homes
that hit the mark. We also appreciated his personal commitment to follow through on anything needed. We
would highly recommend Jon to anyone we know that is buying or selling a home in this area. We sincerely

• Jamie Merriman – Traverse City 04/18/2019
“Jon was outstanding! He made the process of purchasing an out of state home smooth and super quick! He handled absolutely everything aside from deciding on the home for us. We highly recommend him to anyone in the market to purchase a home.”

• Jason & Jennifer Gedmin, Fife Lake 12/24/2018
Jon was very professional from the get-go in handling our search for a house. He was very punctual, and pays excellent attention to detail when providing information on properties and when showing them. Once we were ready to purchase, the actual transaction and paperwork was streamlined and almost effortless. My wife and I will recommend him to anyone looking for a property in the area.
• Scott Kenny – Traverse City 12/12/2018
Jon Becker is one of the best in the Grand Traverse area. Have used Jon as my agent for 2 home purchases and he currently has a home listed for me that went under contract in less than 3 days after hitting the market. Highly recommend whether you are buying or selling!!
• The Longs of Fife Lake 11/29/2018
Jon Becker is very professional and easy to work with. He understood what we wanted and he did exactly that. We will definitely recommend Jon Becker to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
• Kyle Higdon – Traverse City 10/27/2018
Jon met with us in January and laid out a plan for us but we weren’t ready to list until September. Jon never rushed us. We were on the market for 5 days and got two offers both well above list price. To say we are pleased with Jon’s work is an understatement!
Jon laid out plans for our house based on the market and made it very easy for us to determine how to list and when. He was always open and honest with us and we knew exactly what to expect.
• Todd G. – Traverse City 10/23/2018
Jon had helped me sell two properties and buy two properties since 2011. This is the fifth time I’ve worked with Jon. I appreciate his patience, honesty, and diligent hard work.
• Graham Brinklow - Traverse City, MI 10/10/2018
Jon Becker even took time during his weekend vacation to help us with aspects of making an offer on a house. He truly goes above and beyond to help buyers, and we won't hesitate to go with Jon again when it comes time to sell and buy in the Traverse City area. We would highly recommend Jon to everyone.
• Dan Rockwell - Kalkaska 06/01/2018
Jon Becker met and far exceeded our expectations! Our purchase was far from ordinary due to a pending foreclosure and sheriff’s sale on the property. It was very frustrating at times but of course none of that had to do with Jon and Century 21. He fought for us and managed to get it done under our strict budget and time frame! We are happily moved in and even tho the sale is over, Jon is continuing to work with us in regards to an appliance issue from our purchase agreement. We couldn't be happier!
• Dan - Fife Lake, MI 05/14/2017
Jon was Great!!! Sold our home in less than a weekend and was a pleasure to work with. Answered all our questions honestly.
• Marcus Trombetta
He was great – had no issues and I’m particularly impressed that he went to bat to ensure the address recorded was Lake Street, despite a problem on the county listings
• Brenda Miller
Very thorough and patient with the process
• Zak Pater
Jon was a great realtor. He was always quick to respond to any questions we had. Jon was also, very knowledgeable on the area and surroundings.
• Rex & Connie Dolney 10/12/2016
Jon is very experienced in selling fractional ownership condo's, so we were very pleased to use his services. Jon is very easy to work with; he takes all the stress out of the home selling process. We would gladly use Jon's service’s again:)
Jon always had an excellent marketing plan in place to sell our fractional ownership condo.
• Mel Straight 09/29/2016
Jon Becker was knowledgeable, understanding, and helpful. He communicated well and did what we asked efficiently. He touched base with us by phone, by email, or in person often and kept us aware of what was happening. He offered advice, but did what we wanted if there was a difference of opinion. He just did not let it happen, Jon made it happen. We would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell property.
