Jon Gilkeson, REALTOR
Jon is a 4th-generation Santa Barbara native and knows the surrounding areas like only a true local would. He obtained his real estate license immediately after graduating college in 2010 as he always had a passion for real estate.
With over a decade of experience, Jon has a systematic approach to real estate that has proven to be a winning formula for his clients. His excellent communication skills combined with traditional and cutting-edge marketing strategies allow him to secure those results.
With every client, Jon focuses on building close relationships and providing the easiest and smoothest transaction, by anticipating challenges and utilizing his team of specialists for every step of the transaction. Operating in the top 3% of realtors in Santa Barbara, Jon has personally sold over $100,000,000 in real estate.
Jon’s family’s business roots go back to the early 1900s in Santa Barbara, with the original Italian Market, so he is an avid promoter of anything local. Check out his Santa Barbara Foodies group that he founded after the pandemic forced restaurants to shut down. The group was originally founded to support local businesses but quickly grew into a group of passionate foodies sharing good food and creating a community of support for each other.
In his free time, Jon enjoys staying very active. You might find him playing beach volleyball at East Beach, camping and hiking around California, or walking his golden retriever dog, Jackson, at the beach.
