His broad business base and an in-depth knowledge of the Santa Barbara area has greatly assisted him in his career.
Schlobohm’s career as a realtor started late in 2009 when he helped launch a new investment group and brokerage, Bohlinger Properties, which was focused on buying foreclosures and reselling those properties. Since inception, Jon-Ryan evaluated hundreds of deals and played a large role in acquisitions. As one of the project managers, he oversaw the rehabilitation and design of many projects, and upon completion, listed and sold those properties.
