Jonathan has always considered himself an overachiever — someone who is unwilling to settle for the status quo. His exceptional drive was evident even as a teenager, when he enrolled in college before he could legally drive a car. Desiring to develop a greater understanding of the business side of the real estate profession, Jonathan opted to focus his studies at Florida State University on business and finance, graduating with a degree in Business Administration at 19 years old. Coupled with his natural entrepreneurial spirit, Jonathan discovered an opportunity to parlay his degree with his desire to launch a career in real estate when he started off working in the foreclosure resale business in his hometown of Destin, Fla. In 2015, Jonathan joined Scenic Sotheby’s International Realty. Utilizing his “go-getter” attitude and superior knowledge of the Northwest Florida real estate market, Jonathan rapidly developed a stranglehold on the luxury real estate market in the area. With business booming after only two short years, Jonathan began assembling a talented team of his own that would operate under the Scenic Sotheby’s International Realty brand; thus, Spears Group was formed. In 2020, Jonathan and his team closed over $265 million in sales, and for the second consecutive year, Jonathan was named the youngest member of “The Thousand Top Real Estate Professionals,” as published in The Wall Street Journal – inking him in the top one-half of one percent of the more than 1.3 million REALTORS® nationwide by individual sales volume. Jonathan’s greatest passion is to deliver exemplary service and keen expertise to help his customers achieve their real estate goals. He puts that knowledge to work every day, securing the best deal for his buyers and highest sale price for customers selling their luxury properties. He devotes uncompromising dedication and work ethic to his customers in every transaction. Jonathan is a devoted father and husband to his daughter Ella, son Emery and wife Juliane. As a family, they enjoy spending their time together in their backyard oasis of the Emerald Coast and their second home in Vail, Colo.
