We are very excited to welcome to Charlesgate Realty our newest agent, Jon Kumin! Here is a little background on Jon who specializes in buyers, sellers, and renters!
Jon spent the first 10 years of his career working in Research Equity Sales. Most recently, he worked with Wells Fargo, the largest mortgage bank in the United States. At Wells Fargo, Jon spent a considerable amount of time working in Real Estate Capital Markets where he discovered his true passion for real estate, and made the decision to pursue a career in real estate full time.
Having grown up in Boston’s Back Bay, Jon has a deep understanding of the city’s rich architectural history as well as its growth and infrastructure development. Drawing on his knowledge of Boston, his favorite city in the world, Jon decided to focus his real estate efforts on Boston and the surrounding neighborhoods.
Jon began his career in Real Estate at a top rental volume brokerage firm in Boston. He quickly gained experience, completing over 50 real estate transactions as a renter’s agent, buyer’s agent and seller’s agent.
When Jon is not working, he most enjoys spending time with his wife and his Golden Retriever, Wally. Jon is also an avid Boston sports enthusiast, and loves everything to do with the Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins and Patriots.
