Jon Gilkeson

Realtor Partner

Jon’s real estate journey began right after college in 2010, driven by his lifelong passion for the field. With over a decade of experience, Jon has honed a systematic approach that consistently delivers winning results for his clients. He blends superb communication skills with a mix of traditional and cutting-edge marketing strategies.

Jon’s hallmark is building close client relationships and orchestrating seamless transactions. He proactively anticipates challenges and relies on a team of specialists for each step of the process. Operating in the top 3% of Santa Barbara realtors, Jon has personally facilitated over $100,000,000 in real estate sales.

Jon’s family’s history in Santa Barbara dates back to the early 1900s, and is rooted in the original Italian Market, making him a fervent advocate for all things local. He founded the Santa Barbara Foodies group during the pandemic to support local businesses, which has grown into a passionate community of food enthusiasts who share good food and mutual support.

Outside of work, Jon leads an active lifestyle, whether it’s playing beach volleyball at East Beach, exploring California’s natural beauty through camping and hiking, or enjoying leisurely walks with his golden retriever, Jackson, on the beach.
