"My husband and I have purchased and sold a number of homes over the years and we have worked with various agents through these transactions. This year we had the pleasure of working with Jonathan as a listing agent on a property we purchased and we found him to be one of, if not the best, agents we have worked with over the years. On this recent transaction, Jonathan represented both the seller and buyer (us). This special property was a very complicated transaction in many ways … one being a large gap in price objectives between the seller and buyer. Jonathan single handedly brought the buyer and seller together to reach a deal where both seller and buyer were satisfied with the outcome. Jonathan’s combination of low pressure; responsiveness; persistence; detail; flexibility and patience delivers results. We enthusiastically recommend Jonathan as an agent both for a seller or buyer." - Wes and Kelly

"I want to thank you for your persistence and hard work that allowed me to be the successful offer on my new home in Carmel. You did a great job of educating me on the properties of Carmel for location and cost. The most important thought I have is that you kept me informed constantly of everything related to the property, within minutes of anything happening during both the offer process and the escrow period. You also networked very well with the selling party’s representative, knowing when we needed to be “tough”, and when to be “soft”. It all came together with me being the successful offer out of 11 total offers. I am also very pleased that you have put me together with an architect to design my new home. He has great ideas. I will definitely use you again for future property purchases. And, I will definitely recommend you to others as well" - Ron and Carolyn

"Jonathan helped make our dream become a reality. We were introduced to Jonathan through an acquaintance. He quickly understood what we were looking for and was instrumental in helping us refine our search, find the right property and negotiate on our behalf. Jonathan was incredibly responsive, diligent and transparent. He was instrumental in helping solve difficulties we encountered. He was extremely proactive and even brought in his own resources to find solutions to a particular issue. He did all this with a stellar attitude and positive energy. He has been a pleasure to work with. As a result, we’ve gained a friend. We’d strongly endorse Jonathan to represent us again in future transactions. " - John and Ann

"Jonathan is a fantastic agent! He was very patient with us and never made us feel rushed or pressured. He paid attention to the things we liked and did not like and was really aware of the features we valued when looking for a house. He was quick to make us aware of unusual opportunities and was well connected to know in a timely manner when they were available. Jonathan is completely on top of things. Any question or concern received an immediate response. We never had to remind him of things, and it was him that had to remind us when paperwork was due. He went out of his way to make things easy for us and make the closing process smooth. He was always there to help explain things. Jonathan also did many things other realtors have never done for us, going way beyond to help us get acquainted with repairmen, contractors and specialty inspectors to make sure we were comfortable with our purchase. Jonathan's help did not end with the close and he was always available for further questions after we already had the keys to the house. We would highly recommend Jonathan to anyone, and feel assured that they would have a great experience working with him and benefitting from his wonderful expertise! " - Dave and Stephanie

"During the recent sale of my coastal ranch, I was impressed with the following real property services rendered by you: Cost-effective and necessary pre-sale maintenance and repair. Staging of my ranch in good taste with turn key leverage to attract the high net worth buyer. Offering a quantified fair market price with effective print and internet advertising. Negotiation with two high net worth buyers to close the sale in a timely manner. Since you fulfilled every commitment that you made, I am confident in your ability and integrity to close another sale on a prime property which I own in the Santa Lucia Preserve. I shall refer you to my friends. " - Dick

About Jonathan
Jonathan Spencer is uniquely positioned to offer you a seamless real estate experience from start to finish. With a background in finance, strong ties to the community, and a trusted partnership with Compass, he has yet to meet a property he could not sell.

Jonathan began his career as an investment manager, mastering the ins and outs of client relationships and prudent investments. He eventually moved his business to the Monterey Peninsula, and it was here that he segued into real estate, closing over $180-million in sales since 2014. He received Rookie of the Year honors during his first year in business and has been a top producer ever since. $28-million closing of Canary Cottage was the highest sale in Monterey County in 2018 and the third-highest ever in Pebble Beach. In 2021, Jonathan was honored to be included on the WSJ Real Trends America's Best Real Estate Professionals List.

His connection to the area started long before his work in real estate. Jonathan grew up visiting his grandparents in Carmel, making it an easy decision to move there with his wife and raise their two children. He calls it the most beautiful meeting of land and sea in the world. It is this passion for the Peninsula, combined with his background in investments, that enables him to better serve his clients. Whether he is helping to facilitate a 1031 Exchange or educating first-time homebuyers, the goal is always to help clients make the best financial decision for their future.

Integrity matters to Jonathan, and he has built his career on it. Past clients will attest to his honesty, reliability, and commitment to always do right by them. Jonathan has put his reputation on the line multiple times to help his clients win approval with the Carmel-by-the-Sea City Council. He has cultivated a network of trusted vendors, always offering clients a solution and a reliable resource to get the job done. When he tells you he will do something, it happens on time and at the right price.

This detail-oriented approach and strong work ethic were ingrained in him early on. Jonathan earned his Eagle Scout award and went on to captain his high school baseball and football teams. His leadership skills continued to grow as the Director of the 2008 Mitt Romney presidential campaign at Brigham Young University.

Sports are still an essential part of Jonathan’s life as both an avid fan and participant. He will be the first to tell you that he has a competitive streak, but he will also tell you it is not just about winning. It is about making the right deal, at the right time, for the right home.

Today, Jonathan stays closely connected to the local community, volunteering and supporting a number of organizations: Interfaith Homeless Emergency Lodging Program (I-HELP), Boy Scouts of America, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Tularcitos Elementary School PTO, Monterey Peninsula Ballet Theater, Salvation Army, Monterey Recreation, Carmel Youth Baseball, and the YMCA of the Monterey Peninsula.
