Jon Stubbs has been a writer on the Real Estate Witch team since 2021. He’s been a professional writer and editor for over 20 years, working on topics such as consumer debt, personal finances, and home improvement projects.
His work at Real Estate Witch focuses on saving money when selling a home, whether it’s finding the right low-commission realtor or researching how to sell a home yourself, which Jon and his wife did several years ago. Jon is a homeowner and avid DIYer himself — he’s especially skilled at planning projects, but less successful in finding the time to do them all. When he’s not researching real estate costs, Jon is happiest spending time outdoors gardening, fishing or hiking.
