Ron J. Bonhagen, Sr. founded the South Bay Real Estate Group in 2011 after 4 ½ years at one of Silicon Valley’s top real estate firms, Intero Real Estate Services, learning and observing from the best of the best in the real estate business. With the South Bay Real Estate Group, Ron continues to successfully sell 100% of all listings taken, far exceeding his clients' expectations, and he has repeated that success in every real estate market served.

In 2007, Ron relocated to California with his wife and 1 year old son to be closer to her family in Silicon Valley and to continue his real estate business here in the South Bay, going on to earn his California real estate Broker’s license.

Ron’s early career started in the New Orleans where he earned his Louisiana real estate license in 1989, successfully practicing real estate at a small boutique firm in the historic districts of New Orleans. Ron soon learned the importance of sales and marketing to the real estate business so he spent the next 15 years honing his skills in sales and marketing at large Fortune 100 firms and small tech start-ups. By 2005, Ron was ready to return to the real estate business better equipped to serve his clientele and he earned his Virginia real estate license. He sold 100% of his listings, far exceeding his clients' expectations in the Northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, DC.

Ron inherited his love of real estate from his father, a “part-time” real estate investor. As a young boy, Ron closely observed his father who invested in residential, commercial and land throughout the Greater New Orleans area. At a very early age, Ron learned the true value of a great investment benefitting both sides, a “win-win” where both buyers and sellers achieved great value in each and every transaction and he carries that commitment through to his clients today, every single day.
