Jon Butler, a native of Iowa, is a Summa Cum Laude graduate of Luther College in Decorah, Iowa, where he graduated at the top of the business school with a B.A. in Accounting and minors in Economics and Music.  After a year-long lap around the globe, 2 years of accounting and finance work in Minneapolis, MN and then 3 years as a touring production manager based out of LA, Jon jumped into the Southern California Real Estate market five years ago, bringing a driven energy and an enthusiastic, positive outlook to a struggling, declining market.

Jon immediately entered the default services market, selling bank-owned homes (REO), assisting homeowners with short sales, and completing numerous BPO’s (Broker Price Opinions) for the banks.  With the help of the 2,500+ BPO’s Jon has completed in the LA area in the first 3 years of his career, he developed an in-depth knowledge and understanding of most of LA’s different markets.

Jon got off to a quick start in his real estate career and has already helped close over 90 transactions.  Along with his distressed sales business, Jon has built a strong clientele of regular buyers, investors and sellers from the Westside to Eagle Rock.  As a Sherman Oaks resident, he also does a lot of work in the San Fernando Valley. In addition, Jon has worked extensively with non-profits to help guide first-time homebuyers through the home buying process so they can enjoy the perks of home ownership.
With his excellent financial knowledge, his ability to listen and communicate effectively, and his strong grasp on today’s market, Jon is a valuable asset to any client looking to buy or sell a home.  Putting customer service first, and ensuring prompt, researched answers and solutions to client questions or concerns, Jon has an immensely successful record in achieving his clients’ real estate purchasing and selling goals. Jon continues to study the daily market trends so he is always well-equipped to successfully advise his clients.  Jon operates under three core values: Honesty, Dependability and Adaptability.

Jon is very excited to be a part of Teles Properties, where he can partner their superior marketing capabilities and transactional support with his expansive real estate skillset to become a top LA agent.

Jon is a regular volunteer with LA Works, and he stays active by playing in numerous city softball, soccer and flag football leagues.  He is also an avid golfer and sports enthusiast.  Jon is the lucky husband of Miranda and father to 18-month-old, Adaline.
