Jon Kohler’s professional career is dedicated to the specialty brokerage, advising, and marketing of plantation, ranches and recreational land. Named "The Plantation Broker" by Garden & Gun and the "Plantation King" by Deep South Magazine, his passion for conservation has led him to develop a unique market niche representing landowners who practice good land stewardship and marketing these properties world-wide.

Jon is a member of both the Florida and Montana Bar and has a Juris Doctorate from Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing, Michigan and a Bachelor’s Degree in both Real Estate and Small Business Management from Florida State University. He first obtained his salesman’s license 27 years ago after discovering his passion for unique, environmentally sensitive land and sporting properties. He founded Jon Kohler & Associates in 1991. He went on to earn his law degree to be able to provide the highest level of representation to landowners and investors. In 2001, he was retained to represent Rock Creek Capital on a semi-exclusive basis and helped them create one of the finest portfolios of investment grade high quality land and plantations in the southeast.

In 2008, when he couldn’t find a marketing firm that understood the nuances of marketing unique properties to high net worth individuals he co-founded Plantation Marketing Group. It is the only company of its kind to focus on this specialty niche. In 2014, Jon co- founded LandLeader ® which in the first three years as a start-up closed more than $3.4B in land across 35 states. Jon personally was the #1 salesman (top sales by individual) in 2015 and the #2 salesman in 2016 & 2017. LandLeader is now the largest land marketing company in America. Only in its second season, Landleader TV is seen by 800,000 viewers. Today, Jon serves on the Board of Directors and with Kohler and Associates has a combined annual marketing budget of over $1.6M.

Jon Kohler and Associates expanded in 2015 to South Carolina and now represents landowners & buyers in all seven quail "plantation belts" across the Southeast. Jon and his partner, Erica, have personally closed over 200,000 acres and $410,000,000 in sales since 2010 alone. Today, Jon is regarded as one of the most experienced high quality land brokers and marketers in the Florida, Georgia, and Alabama markets, and is now offering the same commitment to landowners and buyers in South Carolina. He is contacted by almost all plantation sellers and is a source of due diligence for almost all buyers in this specialty niche.

Notable sales made by Jon include Greenwood Plantation (4,000 acres for $22M to a conservation buyer), Southern Heritage In Albany (7,000 acres), Disston Plantation 4,200 acres (closed twice), Rock Creek/Molpus (124,000 acres that at $142,000,000 held title as the largest land sale in the southeast for 8 years), Longpine Plantation (6,000 acres/Ford family’s Thomasville quail plantation), and A-Cross Ranch (Saratoga, Wyoming/Regarded as one of the top three fly fishing ranches in the Lower 48), to name a few. Jon also has an agricultural passion and was instrumental in Hickory Foods “Bubba Burger” finding a headquarters ranch for their grass fed beef and helped Bill Gates and others convert old farms into irrigated farmland. Today, high quality agriculture, ranches and timberland continue to be a large part of their practice.

Jon also developed Centerville Conservation Community, the first conservation community in North Florida/South Georgia that preserved over 70% of the 975 acres in open space, lakes, trails, etc. Today, the 200 lot conservation neighborhood is respected nationwide and regarded as one of the finest developments in Tallahassee and a win-win between development and conservation. It’s the only development of its kind with controlled fire being a part of HOA dues.
