Jon Hughes joins the Pointe Commercial Real Estate brokerage team with vast knowledge of the Chattanooga market and the surrounding areas. He loves Chattanooga and has always called it his home. Jon started his real estate career with SunTrust Mortgage in 2006 as a loan officer and experienced rapid success. With a desire to be more involved in the real estate transaction, he entered the residential sector in April of 2008. Starting as a new agent in the worst real estate market ever helped him learn how to prospect for new business in a time when deals were a scarcity. Jon used his mortgage background knowledge to guide buyers and sellers to the closing table. Jon helped home owners avoid foreclosure and would bring deals to investors to capitalize on opportunities to build wealth. All of this kept him in the business when the market was at its lowest. Looking back, Mr. Hughes appreciates that time and understands how to take on a challenging market.
Six years later into his real estate journey he took on the role as the Principal Broker and CEO for one of Chattanooga’s largest real estate companies. While leading the company, Mr. Hughes led multiple offices to robust development in every area. Jon increased the number of licensed agents from 110 to over 230 in three years.
Mr. Hughes is determined to help Ponte Commercial Real Estate increase their presence and market share in Chattanooga. Jon’s real estate background and business owner mindset will help his clients achieve the results they deserve and expect.
When Jon isn’t helping others hit their financial goals, he cherishes the time he spends with his wife Kera and their three children. A family of outdoor enthusiasts, they love to go backpacking and spend time with family and friends in Chattanooga’s beautiful scenery.
