About Me
I was born in Northern New Jersey but was transplanted to Saranac Lake at a young age. Growing up in the playground of lakes and mountains was certainly a blessing!

After graduating from Paul Smiths College with a degree in forestry, I built a successful property management business, which naturally led to a fulfilling career selling real estate. I live on a large property in the "boonies" and enjoy ice fishing and making maple syrup with my wife and three children.

"A Real Pro"
Michael a P S

Jonathan found for us the EXACT property we were looking for and made the entire process as painless as possible--he is a real pro. Importantly as we are new to the Adirondacks and, in fact to the state of New York, he helped to find local resources that enabled a smooth transition to our new home.

"Highly recommend both Jonathan & Merrill L. Thomas!"
Joe G

I contacted Jonathan when a property became available near my current home. He acted immediately and had the owners who were located out of state within that day with my offer. Through a series of negotiations, we were able to come to a satisfactory price for both parties. Jonathan came we prepared for any question I had concerning the property and my future needs & potentials. I had a friend visiting from SC he was impressed and purchased the adjoining property with was also available for a future 2nd home. I would also like to mention that Merrill L. Thomas real estate did an excellent job in follow up needs for the closing. If anyone is interested in property or real estate in this region I would highly recommend both Jonathan & Merrill L. Thomas for your needs.

"It always felt like we were his only clients!"
Erin H

We worked with Jonathan to both sell our past house and purchase our new home. He was absolutely wonderful to work with through both stressful and emotional processes. He is extremely knowledgeable, supportive and always had our best interest as a top priority through negotiations. While busy with other concurrent sales, it always felt like we were his only clients and his commitment and excellent responsiveness was very much appreciated. I would very highly recommend him.

"Jon in our corner was invaluable!"
Lawrence G

Honest, Committed and Authentic are the first three words that come to mind. Jon is an amazing real estate professional who went above and beyond the call of duty for us, every step of the buying process and always worked tirelessly to get us whatever information we needed as fast as possible. Jon is a great listener with great judgment and he instinctively understood exactly what kind of home we were looking for and he found it for us. When we encountered unexpected issues Jon was always there for us with helpful insights and we could always count on him to tell it to us straight even when it wasn't what we wanted to hear and his input could have jeopardized a sale. Buying a home is a very arduous and emotional process and having Jon in our corner was invaluable.

"Jon made it easy!"
Mark M

Jon was terrific to work with and we enjoyed the process...Jon made it easy. He set up great day for looking at homes and was always available for questions and next steps. He is from the area and in addition to being knowledgeable about the area he has a strong network of professionals he has access to, ie inspectors; legal etc. thanks Jon, we love our River House!

"Wealth of Knowledge"
Matt F

"Jonathan was a pleasure to work with for a number of reasons. First and foremost, having a professional realtor with intimate knowledge of the area and its lakes was invaluable to us. As we had limited knowledge of the area we needed someone to help us understand the properties and their relative values and Jonathan bridged that gap at every turn. And there were quite a few twists and turns along the way. Having grown up in Saranac Lake and worked in the region as a property manager for camps, Jonathan offered a wealth of knowledge to help inform our understanding and decisions. The final decision ended up being the complete opposite of what we initially thought we would purchase. And at almost less than half of what we planned on spending, his attention and focus never lessened. He consistently anticipated issues/needs to work the deal and move things forward through closing. I would highly recommend recommend him to both sellers and buyers."

"Great to Work With"
Brain S

Great realtor to work with. He knew what we were looking for and reached out to us. I would recommend him to a friend. Honest and respectful of seller and buyers needs.

"Got It Done"
Sharon M

Jonathan conducted the listing and sale of our 2 undeveloped lots in the Rainbow Lake, long distance. We live in Massachusetts. He returned my calls quickly and visited the site of our properties the next day. Communication was excellent and he sold both properties in 12 days. We had been told by another agent that land was not selling well, but Jonathan was excited to take on this listing. He got it done.

"Went the Extra Mile"
Karl G

Jonathan is a wonderful professional to work with, and has always exceeded our expectations. He has worked hard to meet our needs and has always gone the extra mile to answer questions or concerns. Just a great person to work with and highly recommended!

"Excellent Service"
Keith O

Jon provided excellent service coupled with his immense knowledge of the area. We recently purchase a large parcel in Union Falls, NY and Jon's attention to detail and communication with the seller's representatives made the process clear and easy. One could not go wrong by having him represent you or your family in any real estate transaction.
