Realtor Partner/AArea Growth Leader- VA | DC | MD
Washington, D.C. is Jovan’s home, but his professional, academic, and athletic pursuits carried him from his native, former Yugoslav Republic of Serbia to Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, and Georgia. Jovan’s talent and commitment to basketball earned him an athletic scholarship to Morehouse College in Atlanta, where he graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management. After graduation, Jovan returned to Serbia to pursue his dream of playing professional basketball. Despite his success on the court, Jovan desired to return to the United States, which had truly become his home, to build his life. He returned to Washington to study mechanics, following in his father and older sisters’ footsteps, who passed on their love for engineering and mathematics. He soon excelled as a master automotive technician and safety and emissions inspector.
Once Jovan purchased his first home, he was “sold” on real estate as his next professional goal. He called upon his professional athletics skills, like teamwork and persistence, and his auto industry acumen, like customer-centered service, to launch himself into real estate. When Jovan joined Keller Williams, he quickly established himself as a trustworthy and knowledgeable realtor. He now holds several designations, such as Seller Representative Specialist (SRS), Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR), and Military Relocation Professional (MRP). Jovan’s results-driven approach to service has also secured his place as a National Association of Realtors Multi-Million Dollar Sales club member since his first year in real estate.
Jovan met his wife, Marlaina, here in the nation’s capital, and the couple lives in Cathedral Heights with their dog Kaya. In his free time, Jovan officiates high school basketball, volunteer coaches middle school basketball, and plays in a recreational league. He is also a U.S. and world history buff and enjoys traveling with his wife, a career diplomat.
