An industry veteran with over 26 years experience in real estate, mortgage lending, property management and real estate training. Ron Capp has owned or managed branch offices, a region for one of America’s largest independently owned real estate companies, and a large region for an International real estate brand.
Ron started his career in 1989 at Gibson Properties / Better Homes and Gardens where he became Rookie of the year and for the next 8 years was a top-producing agent in a company of 150 peers. He became a partner at Mason-McDuffie in Campbell, CA in 1997 and quickly merged his office with Prudential California Realty in Los Gatos, CA. Shortly thereafter, Ron purchased 100% interest in the company and re-branded to California Properties / Better Homes and Gardens which ultimately became California Properties / GMAC Real Estate. During his tenure Ron founded HomeWeb Mortgage, HomeWeb Property Management and The Real Estate Training Institute (RETI) which trained realtors, loan officers, managers and Broker / Owners on local, regional and national levels.
Ron sold his companies in 2006 and moved to Incline Village, Nevada where he accepted a position with Dickson Realty, the 77th largest independently owned real estate company in America according to Real Trends. As Director of Business Development he quickly set out transforming the lowest performing branch into one of the regions highest performing offices. He did this by instilling accountability in the agents through coaching and training. Ron was soon promoted to Vice President of the lake region which consisted of six branch offices spanning multiple counties and two states. During his time at Dickson Realty he coached and trained agents and managers, oversaw construction on a new commercial building in Incline Village, merged offices to increase profitability and opened a new branch to gain market share.
Missing his family and native San Jose, Ron moved back to his hometown just in time for Christmas 2008. With the announcement of moving back to San Jose, more than just a few of his past clients asked when he would be back in real estate and mortgage lending in the local market. After much deliberation and “encouragement” from past clients and colleagues, Ron founded Capp Realty and Mortgage to service his client's real estate and lending needs while working on a unique business model for the real estate industry. With his entrepreneurial spirit burning strong, he launched Diamante Realty, Diamante Mortgage and Diamante Commercial Lending in late 2014.
Ron resides in San Jose’s Almaden Valley with his wife Jodie. In his spare time he enjoys mountain biking, running, skiing, camping and fly-fishing. In addition he is passionate about gardening; growing vegetables to share with his family and friends.
