Jon Putnam moved to the Lake Tahoe area in 1978 after a long and varied career on the East Coast. While living on the East Coast, he was involved in the ski industry in several capacities ranging from racing, teaching, helping with the completion and management of Loon Mountain, owning and directing ski schools and acting as an examiner in the certification system for ski instructors. Jon founded, Recreation Specialists, which provided management for several small ski areas, as well as owned the ski schools at Cannon and Wildcat Mountains. He is a commercial pilot and owned both power and sailplane operations. He even spent time in New York City designing rugged sportswear for a national firm. Varied is right.
Jon's background in marketing and sales led his wife, Nora Turner, to suggest looking into Real Estate and has happily been at it for the last ten years. Nora is a California and Nevada Certificated Special Ed teacher. Their daughters graduated from the Truckee school system and have continued very successfully with college and careers of their own.
Jon's relationship-based emphasis revolves around truly listening to what his clients needs are so that he can provide the best personalized and professional service. He takes great pride in close personal communication with both those clients wanting to sell their property and those looking for the perfect vacation home or primary residence.
