Over the last two decades, Jonathan has been able to build a distinguished reputation amongst the buying and selling public, as well as within the close-knit community of local real estate professionals. Jonathan is known for his ability to transform a property in preparation for market, and visually represent his clients' properties in such a way that "the story is effectively told" long before the prospective buyer ever sets foot in the home. This very focus led to a symbiotic relationship with Encore Sotheby’s International Realty in 2011. Jonathan knew he could do an impeccable job preparing homes for market, and that Encore would do an incredible job presenting them. He holds an Indiana Real Estate Broker Associate license, is a proud 16 year member of the Metropolitan Indianapolis Board of Realtors, the Indiana Association of Realtors, and the National Association of Realtors. Jonathan has also held his American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and Accredited Staging Professionals (ASP) designations, and his design work has won local, state, and national awards, and been published in Indianapolis Monthly on multiple occasions.
Jonathan grew up in Carmel, graduated from Carmel High School, and earned his degree in Architecture from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. Prior to residential real estate, Jonathan worked as an intern-architect for Browning, Day, Mullins, Dierdorf, as well as, J.W. McQuiston Architecture + Interior Design. In his leisure time, Jonathan enjoys sampling Indy's best restaurants as a self-diagnosed "foodie", spending time with his family in Michigan and the Caribbean, and taking on residential design projects. Mid-Century Modern enthusiasts, the Eriksens reside in a 1968 modern home on the northeast side of Indy. Jonathan is a community leader and served as President of Ivy Hills Residents' Association for four years. He participates as member with Binford Redevelopment and Growth, and currently serves as Director for the Greater Allisonville Community Council. Jonathan and his wife, Stephanie, are active members of Resonate Church, and avid supporters of Park Tudor, where their children, Natalie and Henry, attend school.
