Jonathan Ruiz

One of the founding members of The Agency, Jonathan has earned a reputation as a skilled negotiator and trusted adviser with an unparalleled command of the Los Angeles luxury market. With more than 100 million dollars in sales volume to date, he ranks among the city’s top-producing agents.

A 17-year veteran of the entertainment industry, Jonathan has built an extensive network of connections and a loyal client base of high net worth individuals who value his integrity, discretion, and professionalism. While many agents specialize in only one neighborhood or niche market, Jonathan makes his clients his niche; from the Eastside to the Coast, he has a track record for his high attention to detail and commitment to generating superior results, tailoring his approach to suit the unique and evolving needs of every client.

Though he made the transition from the world of entertainment to real estate just a few years ago, Jonathan has reached a level of accomplishment more commonly associated with agents who have spent decades in the business. With several major transactions in his extensive portfolio, his swift success stands as a testament to his enthusiasm, dedication, and natural ability to connect with his clients.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Jonathan attended Harvard-Westlake School and UCLA before embarking on a storied career in the entertainment business. Prior to joining The Agency, he served as VP, Production for Lionsgate Entertainment and VP, Production for New Regency at 20th Century Fox, shepherding projects through all stages of production. Earlier in his career, he worked his way up from the mailroom at Creative Artist Agency (CAA), where he served as a Motion Picture Talent Agent for over a decade, helping launch and manage the careers of numerous high profile clients.

Always striving to offer the best possible representation and a competitive edge, Jonathan enjoys collaborating with his fellow agents at the senior level and sharing information about off-market properties and new luxury listings not yet released to the public. He also works closely with The Agency’s in-house creative team to implement marketing strategies for the properties he and his team represent and personally sees to every detail of the buying and selling process, from arranging showings to hosting open houses.

When he is not working on behalf of his clients, Jonathan is an avid traveler but you can also find him surfing at Latigo Point in Malibu, swimming and running at UCLA, golfing, hiking and practicing yoga. He loves exploring Los Angeles, discovering new restaurants, and has an affinity for good tequila. An avid music lover, he goes to concerts whenever he has the chance. He contributes to and volunteers with a number of charitable causes, including Coupla Guys and Gals Give Back, Wounded Warrior Project, Surfrider Foundation, Giveback Homes & Habitat for Humanity, and Save the Children.
