CRP (Certified Relocation Professional) and GMS (Global Mobility Specialist)
Jonathan Fink, a licensed attorney, changed directions in 1991 to start his first destination services business. Since that time, he has developed a real estate based delivery model for an array of services such as area tours, rental finding, international settling-in services as well as buying/selling real estate. Jonathan is a licensed real estate broker and has received the CRP (Certified Relocation Professional) and GMS (Global Mobility Specialist) certifications from the Employee Relocation Council.
Jonathan enjoys many activities with his family, including travel, music, boating, biking and hiking (their chocolate lab’s personal favorite).
“In the course of my career, I have moved over 15 times to locations in both the U.S. as well as internationally. Sometimes I have bought properties, and sometimes I have rented. In many respects, completing my relocation and house hunting in Seattle was the most challenging I had experienced. The one positive constant in this process was Jonathan Fink and his team at Home Destination Real Estate. He not only knew the market in the Seattle region, but he was a master of all aspects of the relocation process. He was there for us every step of the way, and I could not have asked for a better or more trusted partner. He was extremely personable, and made a real effort to understand what our needs and desires were. When there were hiccups or unexpected events in the process, he took them in stride and adjusted accordingly. What never changed was his commitment to ensure that we found the home that was just what we were looking for.”
“My wife and I first met Jonathan almost 10 years ago when we moved to the Seattle area. Jonathan was our assigned real estate agent if we decided to buy a house. Through eight months of regular visits to open houses, for-sales, and hunting for the ‘right’ house for us, Jonathan guided us with patience, good humor and excellent advice till we found our home. During this period, we relied heavily on him for his deep knowledge of the local market and real estate practices. He is a trusted friend and the first person we seek counsel from on all matters home-related, whether it be repairs, remodeling, improvements, or just out of curiosity. When we were ready to sell, he was the only person we worked with to complete the process. Jonathan is a person of strong family values, honest, ethical, and a consummate professional, and we are proud to call him our friend and advisor.”
When we moved to Seattle, it was our first time in the US. We did not know anyone here and did not have friend or family member to ask for great tips, or advise on best neighborhood to live. We were looking for colleagues who could show us around, and advise on best tricks to find a neighborhood to live. My husband and I were lucky that Jonathan Fink was introduced to us upon arrival in Seattle. He has been for us what the great friend we were looking for to ask for help. He has been very kind, available, patient, listening to our needs and holding our hands to get through initial administrative paper work such as driving license, Social security. Most importantly he helped us finding the right places to live, exactly what we described to him!!!. We rented first for two years and when the family grew up we bought a condo, all thanks to Jonathan’s wise advises, patience and guidance. Today, we feel lucky that we had the “best friend” who knows the neighborhoods and was able to help us finding exactly what we were looking for. The best was that Jonathan also helped other friends finding their home in the same neighborhood, making our family one of the happiest new movers to Seattle. We feel at home here thanks to you Jonathan.

Thank you so much for the tour of neighborhoods. We are excited by all Seattle offers. We haven’t had a chance to talk since my return yesterday evening, but I suspect we will be in touch. BTW, the homes you included look awesome! Some of these I’ve also seen on Zillow but would love your insight on them when we get closer to deciding our next steps.You are amazing and have become a bit of a legend in the Juno office yourself! Thanks again!
This is just some quick feedback following our visit last week to Seattle, and in relation to Jonathan Fink’s support. My wife and I could not have been more delighted. Jonathan was really excellent; his knowledge was comprehensive; his approach thoughtful and considered; and his manner instilled confidence. We feel very fortunate that to have him assisting our move.
