Just a few words that have been used to describe J.R. Rouse:  Enthusiastic, Committed, High Achiever, Exceeding Expectations.

J.R. Rouse’s confidence comes from hard work coupled with strong spiritual grounding. He’s passionate about helping clients find the home of their dreams, whether it’s a quaint cottage or a multimillion dollar estate. 

J.R. has a unique ability to stay focused on the needs of his clients. His upbringing in North Carolina, and his experience as a non-commissioned officer in the United States Air Force, working in both the Pentagon and the White House, helped him form the disciplined approach to problem solving that he brings to every client relationship. 

He moved to California in 1989, and spent the next ten years in Silicon Valley, rising through the ranks of the customer service departments of Silicon Graphics and Cybersource. He started his real estate career in the Monterey Peninsula in 1999 and at the same time moved his principal residence from Silicon Valley to Pacific Grove. In 2005, he opened his own firm, J.R. Rouse Real Estate, in Pacific Grove, California and shortly thereafter was honored by the Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce as Entrepreneur of the Year. He managed his firm until joining Sotheby’s International Realty in January of 2014.  In January 2019, he joined Intero Real Estate Services, A Berkshire Hathaway Affiliate as Vice President/Managing Officer for Monterey County.  4/12/2021: J.R. returned to Sotheby’s International Realty as Broker Associate/REALTOR® to lead TEAM ROUSE: (J.R.
