Jon-Ryan helped us through the process of selling our condo. After 25 years in the same place, we were somewhat hesitant about all that would be involved in moving, but Jon-Ryan helped us with every step. He was patient and let us move at our own pace. He was always responsive and helpful and stayed very involved. I can't recommend Jon-Ryan highly enough. If you are looking for someone who is honest, knowledgable, and will put your interests first, you will be happy you chose to work with him.

Simply put, Jon-Ryan and Kirk are the best real estate agents we've ever worked with and I'm 10,000% serious about that statement. Throughout the search (9 mos. - perfectly finished homes, rehabs, gut jobs, raw land, big and small), negotiations (1 mos.), closing (3 weeks including geological and soil studies they helped scheduled and oversee), and even post-closing of our land purchase in Montecito, CA they've always put our interests first and worked tirelessly for my wife and me. It didn't matter the size of the request, they jumped in and used their experience and connections to get the information we needed to make the right choice/decision. Andrea and I have worked with real estate agents a total of 8 times during our marriage - in NYC, Charlotte, Chicago, and Los Angeles - and at no other time did we feel as happy/satisfied customers as we did with Jon-Ryan and Kirk. They're terrific individuals and a great team - work with them whether you're selling, buying, renting...whatever! You won't be disappointed. I promise.
"We just purchased our first single family home in San Roque and we were delighted to have Jon-Ryan as our Real Estate Agent. He was very professional and organized and it was clear he had our best interests in mind. He was patient and very detailed; suggested many of the tradesmen for getting thorough inspections. He has a lot of personal experience in buying, selling, rehabbing real estate, so he knows when a house is a lemon or if it is a good find. He was available, if we thought of a question or needed to look at a certain property one more time and he was always willing to meet at a convenient time for us. You will be in good hands if Jon-Ryan represents you in your buying or selling of real estate."
"Jon Ryan Schlobohm has been a JOY to work with; he has “Gone the extra Mile” for us literally! We were very fortunate in choosing Jon Ryan to become our Realtor.
Jon Ryan has proven to be a very hardworking and knowledgeable Realtor. He worked and cooperated with all the agents and their clients who viewed our home. Because he is a long time area resident he also has a great understanding of Montecito and Santa Barbara.
Jon Ryan is VERY detail oriented and since we had become non-resident homeowners, this became extremely important. Jon Ryan collected our mail and re-mailed it to us. We had several minor and some major repairs to make. Jon Ryan coordinated all of these for us! When we would thank him, he would say: “I am always happy to help and to be of service to you!” We never received a call asking us to drop everything and drive four hours to correct or fix a problem. He also advised us when not to spend money un-necessarily. Jon Ryan was always there for us, to help, advise or open the home for any reason.
We HIGHLY recommend Jon Ryan Schlobohm for any Real Estate needs you may have."
"Jon-Ryan was phenomenal to work with, from beginning to end. Our experience working with him involved the sale of my mom's house and the purchase of a new home. Throughout what could have otherwise been a complicated & stressful process, Jon-Ryan guided us through smoothly and intelligently. I'd describe his character as a unique blend of: remarkable integrity, assertive and results-driven when necessary, and compassionate / his client's best possible advocate. And on top of that, a rich knowledge of the Santa Barbara County housing market.
At one point during escrow, Jon-Ryan even offered to lift a hand - and no sooner had my mom accepted his help, but we found him at her property, doing heavy lifting and jumping into her dumpster! He had mentioned something about wanting to do his part to take care of the widows in our community, and well- mission accomplished, Jon-Ryan.
We felt like we were given the royal treatment as Jon-Ryan's clients; however, I have it on pretty good authority that he treats all his clients this way. We honestly couldn't have imagined a better experience. Even in the face of the challenges that selling / buying can bring, Jon-Ryan dispersed wise financial advice, creative logistics, and navigated us through to the finish line with strength and confidence."
"Jon-Ryan (JR) recently represented my wife and I on the purchase of a $5+ million home. At first I was a bit apprehensive about giving JR this assignment given that there are many other brokers out there with significantly more experience. I told JR up front what my concerns were and he ultimately got me comfortable enough to give him the job. I have absolutely no regrets! JR worked extremely hard on our behalf to get the deal closed in a very efficient manner. I found JR to be very good at managing the multiple priorities that are always present when buying a house. I am confident that anyone that works with JR will have the same great experience that we had. Candidly, I think that the fact that JR doesn't have as many years in the business as some others is actually an advantage. What he may lack in experience, he more than makes up for in work ethic, professionalism and good judgment. On top of all of that he's a great person."
"Jon-Ryan understands residential property very well, is a great negotiator, and is skilled at knowing at how to price and sell your house/condo. Also, very pleasant to deal with on a personal basis. He is not a fast-talking, insincere realtor. He is a honest and straightforward + a hard working person as well."
"We had a limited amount of time to find a house in Santa Barbara. He learned very quickly what we wanted and was very helpful in showing homes that were within our means and met more or less our specifications. He was very patient with us and very responsive to our questions and concerns. He always answered his phone promptly and so was readily available. He has a pleasant demeanor and is comfortable to work with. He knows the area very well, not only the residential areas, but local contractors, landscapers, etc. I would highly recommend him."
"Jon-Ryan is extremely knowledgable of the Santa Barbara area and knew we wanted a property we could add value too. He always put our interest first and was very professional. We were able to get exactly what we wanted and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a home."
"Jon Ryan Schlobohm assisted me in finding and buying my first home. Though becoming a first time home buyer was an intimidating experience overall, Jon Ryan helped me through the process step-by-step from finding the perfect place for me to closing the deal."
