Jon was born and raised in Paris before he made the move to Brantford. He currently lives in the North End with his fiance Crystal where they are raising their two young children - Ryker and Harper. Jon attended Fleming College in the Environmental Technology Program before completing the OREA program to obtain his real estate license. He began his career in the environmental field for a few years before making the switch to real estate full-time. Jon's environmental background and knowledge in the community and surrounding areas makes him unique in this field.

Jon's Dream Home
Q & A With Jon:
WHY DID YOU BECOME A REALTOR®?
After buying my first home and really enjoying the entire home buying process it seemed a natural transition to get into real estate as a career, where I can help serve other people. It also allows me the flexibility to be able to spend quality time with my family.
What is you favourite part of selling real estate?
My favourite part of the purchase process is negotiating on behalf of my clients and producing the best possible outcome for them.
WHERE DO YOU LIKE TO TRAVEL?
Kawartha for sure for its beauty, and Toronto for its attractions and sports teams. Go Jays Go! Go Leafs Go!
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE BOOKS, MOVIES, SHOWS, BANDS?
I am always reading books to improve myself or my business- most recently was The Happiness Advantage by Shawn Achor. My favourite movie is The Last Waltz by The Band. I love to listen to Canadian rock music like The Band and The Tragically Hip. Whenever possible I like to head to Toronto and catch a Leafs or Jays game!
WHAT'S ONE THING MOST PEOPLE DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU?
This past fall I purchased my first canoe. I've always loved the outdoors and I'm very excited to be able to spend time on the Grand River this summer.
Jon's Happy Clients
🔥🏡😍 Congratulations to Hans & Julia on the sale of their long time home - 24 Gilston Parkway 🔥🏡😍
“Jon Pickering and his team were very professional and knowledgeable about all that we needed to know and do after living in our home for 28 years. Thank You for helping us to sell our home with such caring and professionalism.”
- Hans and Julia
💥🏡😍 Congratulations to Mat & Kayla on the purchase of 5 Queen Street in beautiful Paris, Ontario. 🔥❗️
Mat & Kayla started working with Jon Pickering over a year ago to purchase their first home. After looking at dozens of homes, and even walking away from a property after a bad home inspection, this home at 5 Queen Street came on market and fit everything Mat & Kayla were looking for.
Rather than wait for a bidding war, we made a pre-emptive bully offer that was accepted by the sellers! Welcome to Paris and congrats on your first home! Thanks for your trust in our team!
