Realty Austin
Jonathan is a licensed REALTOR® and co-owner of Realty Austin. After spending 16 years as an IT professional with Apple, Motorola and Microsoft, Jonathan decided to turn in his employee badge in order to leverage his diverse background in internet technology to fill a void he saw in the residential real estate industry.

In 2004, Jonathan joined forces with his wife and real estate Broker, Yvette Boatwright, in order to build a different kind of real estate company; one that embraces the latest technology in order to provide innovative systems for their clients and all aspects of their agent's business. Today, Realty Austin has grown into a team of 340 top-producing agents who together achieved $2B in sales in 2015 propelling them to the top #1 independent real estate firm in Austin.

Jonathan and the company he co-founded with wife Yvette receive accolades from RealTrends, RISMedia, and Inman News. Jonathan’s technology expertise has gained him national recognition as an Industry Trendsetter on Swanepoel POWER 200 list of the most power people in real estate.

With Jonathan and Yvette’s leadership, Realty Austin is known for their culture of giving back and which has placed them as Central Texas' #1 Best Place to Work by the Austin Business Journal in both years 2014 and 2015. In addition the company was ranked as the #1 Top Workplace by the Austin American Statesman for both years 2012 and 2013. The Austin Chamber of Commerce honored the company with the city’s top award for Community Relations.

Jonathan and his wife Yvette run the #1 independent real estate firm in Austin, a rewarding challenge and passion. In their free time, they enjoy life on Lake Austin with their three girls, Alyssa, Avery and Olivia. Jonathan's other hobbies include wake surfing, sailing, snowboarding, scuba diving, and mountain biking.
