About Jon Lumer
Jon was among the top 5% of Realtors® in the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver by closed deal numbers in 2018. Jon was proud of this result but even more proud of the results obtained by his clients, whether they were on the buying or selling side.
Jon is a former criminal defence attorney who transitioned into real estate hoping to find a career that would allow him to develop more lasting and meaningful relationships with his clients and the people he works with. He knows he made the right decision but still enjoys contemplating and discussing the more legalistic aspects of real estate transactions.
Besides his law degree, Jon also has a degree in Political Science, has travelled widely in Central America and Southeast Asia, and speaks French fluently and Spanish passably.
As a supporter of the Effective Altruism movement, in 2018 Jon donated over 10% of his pre-tax income to three of the world's most effective charities. These were: The Against Malaria Foundation, The Schistosomiasis Control Initiative, and Deworm the World.
Jon lives with his wife and their son in the Kitsilano neighbourhood of Vancouver.
