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 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 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!!!  You may visit my website to view many testimonials from my customers and clients.

  • 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.

  • S Kenny – Traverse City 12/12/2018

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!!                                                A++++

  • 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.

  • Mary Ellen Reister 08/31/2016

Jon took over and made everything easy in the sale of the property. It was not easy either and he handled it so professionally. I would recommend him to others and use him again myself. He is the best realtor I have ever used. Thank you Jon Becker.

  • Matt Olson 04/18/2016

Jon did well on all aspects of the sale, especially negotiating the final price with the buyers. He kept me informed on all activity at the property, and the aspects of the sale as it took shape. I would certainly recommend his service to anyone, without hesitation, and I have his business cards in my wallet as we speak!

  • Matt Homan 04/15/2016

This is my 3rd third time working with Jon. He is always on top of the market and has a solid understanding of the diverse Northern Michigan Market. I have worked with Jon both on the buying and selling side and I would recommend him to anyone anytime for either side of a deal.

  • Tricia Finfrock 04/04/2016

I met Jon several years ago through a friend, who also used to broker with Century 21 . All things aside from that, I reached out to Jon initially back in 2012 when I had considered selling my home. He kept in touch with me for several years; merely to check in while I still had renters in and out of my home. It meant a lot to me that he was so persistent; and ultimately, why I would have chosen him over any other broker that may have approached me since then. Jon did well at keeping my stress minimal while dealing with a very difficult mortgage company. I never felt like Jon wasn't going to get the job done. Through his vast knowledge as a realtor; and with his commitment to me as his client, I was recently able to sell my home in lieu of a short sale/foreclosure.

  • Brent Walton - President Creekside Properties 02/05/2016

We have used Jon for two years now & we are very impressed with him as a Realtor. He keeps us very informed and is fast to respond when we call him. His selling success has been great also, we would highly recommend him. Creekside Properties, Inc. Brent Walton, Pres

  • Jessica J 02/05/2016

Jon, by far, is the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. From our first meeting, all the way until our third anniversary in our home, Jon has been there and available to answer questions or concerns. In fact, recently I just received a postcard from Jon on the third anniversary of the purchase of my home; to me that is going above and beyond. I have and will continue to recommend Jon for all of your real estate needs. I know if I ever want to buy or sell in the future, my first call will be to him!

  • Rita L Spaulding 01/23/2016

Jon has been a pleasure and a treasure to work with. I can't say enough good about him. I have referred 2 friends to him and he is also taking care of them.

  • Debbie Carter 01/02/2016

So I was so inspired by you…..I now am a realtor. I had my license about 30 years ago and was to young and afraid of all the fees. So I put my license in escrow and let it lapse. I just took the 40 hour class again in August and was reinstated. I am working for Real Estate One in Milford. Still working my “regular” job because I can’t afford to not eat for a few months or so! I am loving it though.
How you inspired me was in your professionalism, your communications with me and how you helped us and guided us through the whole process. Buying or selling a home can be such an emotional thing for people and this was one for me in selling off our cottage that we watched being built and put sweat equity in. You made me realize that I still wanted to do this and that I want to be sensitive to the needs of buyers and sellers in their transaction. It can be an exciting process but can also be a sad one. So far, I am loving it!

Happy New Year to you.
