When people first meet Jonathan Klein, his passion is evident. Passion for people, exceptional service, and real estate. Jonathan knows that the cornerstone of real estate is an understanding of people and that homes are an extension of who we are. Listening to and working with people comes naturally to him. Jonathan’s specialty is providing his clients with specific, highly personalized market analysis, a detailed marketing plan, home preparation, staging, and a deep understanding of their needs.
Jonathan has ten years of experience buying, selling, and fixing properties. He knows the process can be as daunting as it is rewarding. He makes the process easy to understand, so his clients can concentrate on the rewarding aspects: getting the most for their property and landing in the perfect home for the next chapter in their lives.
Originally from New York, Jonathan came to California at age 18 and graduated from Chapman University with a degree in theater. Over the past 30 years, he has developed a deep understanding of what makes people tick: their desires, needs, and vulnerabilities. For the last six years, Jonathan built his own business in the hospitality sector, focusing on heroic customer service and quality of the product, virtues he brings to real estate sales.
Jonathan also has a passion for his community. He developed and ran an arts outreach program called The Young Writers Project for 13 years. The program teaches playwriting in underserved, local area schools, and, after serving over 5,000 students and premiering 85 plays, it is still going strong today. Jonathan was also a proud mentor for the Silverlake Children’s Theatre Group, teaching kids about technical theater and designing many of their plays. He ran their summer arts program at the Silverlake YMCA.
Jonathan currently lives in La Crescenta with his wife, Jen and children, Max and Olivia, where he coaches baseball and is involved in the PTA. He loves cooking for his family (and the entire neighborhood) and playing guitar with his son, who, against his father’s wishes, is not much of an Elvis Costello fan.
