Jonathan achieved the “Rookie of the Year” award for HomeLife Western Canada and has been in the top 5% for the company every year since then. Jonathan had an early introduction to real estate as his mother, Edith Katronis, became a realtor when he was only four years old. Home life was a little different as he and his siblings helped his mother with her business, and knew the drill when she had to write a deal, remove subjects, or leave in the middle of a family movie to do a showing.
From a young age, Jonathan was an entrepreneur working various part-time jobs before he was a teenager. Jonathan channeled his drive to succeed and good work ethic, that he learned from his parents, to excel in competitive sports and develop his own small business which he continued to operate while in university.
Jonathan credits his mother for inspiring his business ideals and good work ethic, while his dad taught him to be patient, analytical, and to do things right the first time. He didn’t intend to follow in Edith’s footsteps, but after studying finance at university and working as a research analyst at Export Development Canada, Jonathan realized the corporate world was not the career best suited to his personality and business goals.
Almost like symbiosis, becoming a Realtor® was second nature to Jonathan having grown up in the industry. Instinctively, he knew what to look for when viewing a house, how to write a contract, and, most importantly, what was important to people looking for a home.
Jonathan thrives on challenges, problem-solving, and relishes the process of creating an idea and seeing it through to the end. Being a Realtor® and managing Team Katronis provides this and more. A devoted family man, Jonathan’s favourite part of the day is after dinner spending time with his wife and two young children.
