Jonathan is the owner and managing director of Hunters Southampton (formally JCL Homes). He has been an investor in the Southampton Market since 2002, particularly specialising in the HMO market renting individual rooms to young professionals. Jonathan originally set up in 2005 as J Clegg Lettings following many requests from friends and family to manage their properties. The company then evolved into JCL Homes, selling, renting and managing properties. In 2016, with a growing portfolio, Jonathan joined the Hunters family, utilising the years’ worth of expertise and experience behind Hunters much larger brand, whilst also keeping the independence that is vital to deliver exceptional service. "I have found that my experience in all areas of the property industry ideally positions me to offer advice and guide both new and experienced investors through the ever changing legislation surrounding property. We found this knowledge to be a real advantage to make sure our landlords obtained good yielding properties that are going to rent quickly, having minimal vacant periods (ideally none!)." Jonathan lives in Lymington with his wife and 2 children, not far from his family home. Growing in Lymington meant it was inevitable that a passion for sailing would manifest and he spent his childhood on the water, eventually leading to an Olympic 49er campaign. He is equally passionate about sailing and property, being happy to chat anytime about either – part of the reason for our increasing presence in Ocean Village over the last few years.
