Personal Profile

Welcome New Friends,

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), Accredited Buyers Representative (ABR), and Century 21 Quality Service Award winner (12 years running) - rated 97%-100%+ by my clients & customers! I also average my sellers more in average sales price than the local MLS average = more $$$ for my clients!!! I am Techonology savy and try to maintain the current trends and updates to continually give my clients top notch service and marketing your homes and properties on over 200+ websites, social media and more.

I have been a resident of the Traverse City area since 2002 and I have never felt more at home. What a beautiful area to live and offers a mass of entertainment and recreational opportunities.

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!!!

Role Model in every aspect right down the line. So happy and lucky to have found him. Great Job and thank you Jon very, very much ! If anybody told me they needed to sell their property or were looking for a property and wanted to be treated with respect and were looking for a real professional to help them out I would not hesitate in the slightest to recommend to them to give Jon Becker a cal right away. I know they would not be disappointed in any aspect of their dealings with him Jon Becker is the best at what he does best. Thank You very much Jon !!
  • Buyer review
    I found Jon as my Realtor from a property he had listed. When I called it was already sold so he offered to show me other properties. Jon is by far the best Realtor I have ever worked/dealt with. I have listed and sold multiple properties as well as being a previous Realtor. Not only was he extremely knowledgeable of the area but he ALWAYS came prepared with all of the information on the various properties we looked at. I will only use Jon on any and all future home sales, for me and all of my family. I will also recommend Jon to anyone looking for a Realtor.

    I have known Jon for years. I have recommended him to family and friends. He never disappoints. Truly a real estate gem in northern Michigan!
  • Seller review
    Jon contacted me via US mail regarding the sale of my property. I called him and after 2 or 3 phone discussions I selected him as my realtor. This was my third try at attempting to sell one of the most beautiful properties in the Grand Traverse, MI region. It was obvious from my first conversation with Jon Becker that after two tries, this time I had found a realtor who was mature, serious, intelligent, and willing to do whatever was necessary to sell my beautiful property. My property was difficult to sell because it is protected by a conservation easement and most buyers see this as a significant disadvantage. It was also difficult because the realtor had to be willing to read the easement, understand what he/she read, and then market the property to the right buyer, a buyer who not only saw the disadvantages but one who was open minded enough to recognize the many advantages when elucidated. Jon not only wanted to know my opinion of the right selling price, but he then took the time to research similar properties sold, analyze the earlier appraisal of my property, and also consult with other experts. We then came to a pricing agreement together. We also agreed together that we would be willing to drop the price systematically over time until the property sold. Jon made sure that potential buyers were serious buyers by insisting they prove the ability to pay. I appreciated this because otherwise there would have been a steady stream of sightseeing tours with very few serious candidates. Jon was the right realtor to sell my property. Jon and I didn't always see eye to eye about how to market the property; however, he was mature enough to know when to compromise on a disagreement. The first two attempts were traumatic experiences and complete disasters. Jon got the job done for me, and I will always be grateful for his performance. Because of Jon's high intelligence, analytical mind, and work ethic, I highly recommend him to anyone interested in selling their property.
