He completed two wartime tours of duty in Vietnam and served on the last great Battleship, the USS WISCONSIN (BB-64) which patrolled the Persian Gulf during the first Gulf war.

He is a member of the Catawba Valley Association of Realtors as well as the Carolinas Multiple Listing Service (Charlotte MLS), and for over 9 years a multi-million dollar sales front-runner with Underwood Realty in Hickory.  He is also a long time member and VP of the Catawba Valley business Builders Chapter of Business Network International, a Premier Agent with Zillow and the local representative of Market Leader.  He is now the owner and Broker in Charge of Underwood Realty in Conover.  He is a long time member and past Post Commander of the American Legion and long time member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the Treasurer and Honor Guard member of the Taylorsville Disabled American Veterans and a member of the USS Wisconsin Association.  Jon has three sons and three grandchildren he is very proud of.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Conover, NC.

I was very impressed with Jon during the sale of my home. He is a true professional real estate agent, I felt he went over and above during the entire process beginning with the first meeting through the handing over the keys to the new owners. If you are looking for an honest hard working professional to sell your home, with your best interest in mind, I would highly recommend Jon.  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Hudson, NC.

Jon provides first-class service. He is very courteous, knowledgeable, professional, responsive, and trustworthy. A very impressive realtor!

We recently listed a house with Jon and sold it in six weeks. Jon helped us to find our next house within two weeks. Needless to say, we were very happy with both transactions.

Thanks, Jon!
