I became a Realtor because I believe in homeownership and real estate investing is one of the most significant events in a person’s life. I purchased my first home straight out of college and it was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. Since 2004, I have sold over $586 million dollars in real estate here in the Puget Sound area and helped over 1,394 families achieve their housing goals. Born and raised in the Puget Sound, I have tremendous market and community knowledge. I’ve built a top-notch team of individuals who each specialize in a specific role to make each client’s transaction as seamless as possible. We pride ourselves on customer satisfaction and focus all of our attention on finding the perfect home for our clients. Getting our sellers the most money possible and making the process smooth and enjoyable are our main goals. Providing the highest level of customer service so you will continue to refer your family and friends over and over is a minimum standard at Jon Bye & Associates.

I started my career in Real Estate because I love working with people and believe that home ownership is very important. It is a privilege to be able to help clients achieve home ownership and be a part of such a memorable experience in their life. My team and I are here to help make the home buying process as smooth as possible and to be there for you, every step of the way! When I’m not helping clients accomplish their real estate goals I enjoy spending time with my wife and three kids. Being born and raised in the northwest I love skateboarding, snowboarding and playing music.
The Billings Team

Brokers Dana K Francis and Michael Billings make up the Billings Team and combined they have more than 50 years of experience in real estate. Before working in real estate, Michael was an elementary school teacher and Dana was a dental hygienist. After years of watching her husband’s passion and love for real estate, Dana decided to join him in 2005. Dana and Michael both love helping people achieve their goals of homeownership and they spend a lot of time educating their clients to help them make informed decisions. During every transaction their clients’ best interests are always at the forefront of their minds! That is why they have teamed up with the Jon Bye Team. For the Billings Team, there is no better feeling than seeing their clients' excitement when their goals are achieved and to know that they were able to make a difference in the lives of others through their work. In their free time, Dana and Michael like to travel and spend time outdoors with their dogs. They are both exercise enthusiasts.

Tap into our network of trusted pro’s and we can help build your team towards financial success. We stay involved in the community and love helping people connect. About me? I was born in Tacoma, graduated from the Cronkite School of Journalism at ASU, lived in Australia, and eventually resettled back in the PNW! You can find me strolling downtown Gig Harbor with my family in the Spring, supporting Sounders FC from Lumen Field in the Summer, backpacking the Olympics in the Autumn, and cooking hearty meals at home in the Winter.
I have had the amazing opportunity to start my real estate career in 2021, beginning with this all- star team! I was drawn to this field because of my passion in helping people. Coming from a background of finance and retail management, I was craving a chance to make more meaningful connections with my peers and clients. In 2017, I made the voyage out of Alaska into the “lower 48.” Since, I have had the privilege to call Washington home. I love to try new things, explore new places and all around live for adventure! I also spend my free time experimenting with arts & crafts and playing music. I could not have found a better team to work with, and you will not either!
Broker & Client Specialist
I embarked on my real estate journey in 2019, and since then, I've become a trusted local expert in the field. As a REALTOR, I hold valuable certifications like the Market Ready Plus+ Certification and Knock Certification. What drives me in this profession is my genuine passion for the real estate process and helping clients fulfill their aspirations. Whether it's uncovering their dream home, maximizing profits from a sale, or be the connection for services beyond buying and selling, my primary goal is to provide unwavering guidance and support for my clients. Beyond my real estate work, I have a diverse range of hobbies that keep me balanced and inspired. I'm an avid renovator, constantly improving my own fixer-upper. When I'm not working on houses, you can find me in the garden, playing instruments, drawing, or indulging in various outdoor activities like hiking, paddleboarding, snowboarding, longboarding, and even tinkering with cars. I genuinely believe that a well-rounded life translates into better service for my clients. By combining my expertise in real estate with my passion for living life to the fullest, I strive to create meaningful and lasting relationships with those I have the pleasure of assisting.
I am a firm believer in giving back, so when I joined the team in 2015 I knew I was joining a team that had the same beliefs. As the Listing Manager for the team, I will help facilitate the steps that need to be taken in order to get your home on the market. From paperwork to your Open House, I thrive on making this process as stress free as possible. This is supposed to be an exciting time in your life and I am here to help make sure it is! In my spare time I enjoy hunting, hiking, gardening and cooking but most of all I LOVE spending time with my family and friends.
I have spent the last five years as an elementary school teacher but felt a pull to transition out of public education to take on a new challenge. Because of my passion for helping others, I was instantly drawn to real estate. I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else! I earned my Bachelor’s degree in education from Central Washington University and my Master’s degree from Western Governors University. Outside of work, my husband and I enjoy spending time with our family and friends, exploring the outdoors, and working on projects around our home. As a transaction coordinator, I am honored to assist our clients as they embark on the exciting process of buying or selling a home. Although I am new to the real estate industry, I am beyond excited to begin my journey with this passionate team of professionals!
I am our Team’s Operations Manager. Though I may not be involved in each step of getting a home purchased or sold, it is so rewarding knowing that I helped facilitate local families’ housing dreams. We have built a team of GO-GETTERS that are extremely knowledgeable in the Puget Sound area’s real estate market. My favorite part of my position on the team is community involvement. I'm very privileged and proud to be a board member of the Auburn Food Bank. It is very rare to have the opportunity to work for someone who supports our community so actively. Personally, my family and I enjoy many activities our beautiful region has to offer, such as camping, skiing, snowboarding and boating. Whether you’re in the market to purchase your forever home or sell your first condo…There is not a better team out there!! For Service Beyond the Sale, Give us a call today!!
It may have happenstance that I fell into real estate back in 2015, but I have fallen in love with the people and the energy! I worked at the John L. Scott main office building in the marketing department until the opportunity to join the best team in the Pacific Northwest came my way. Being a part of the back end of helping our amazing clients find the perfect home and sharing that journey is something that never gets old! I love finding out-of-the-box ideas and working creative angles to get to the end goal. Outside of work, I get creative with all sorts of crafty artistic things from painting murals, sewing, and growing an indoor jungle. My husband and I take our 2 small rescue dogs to all the South King County parks for frisbee throwing and fetch.
My passion for real estate was ignited by assisting home buyers in finding the right financing. I have been delighted to continue helping people achieve home ownership as a member of this team. Since relocating to the northwest over 15 years ago, I have never wanted to be anywhere else. I cherish family time, Jon and I are proud parents to our daughter, Rory. Being a parent has only deepened my understanding of the importance of finding the perfect home for families. I look forward to leveraging my lending and real estate expertise to help you find your dream home in this amazing community.
I have always been around the real estate world, my Mom was even an agent back in the day. I started out as an escrow assistant, which was the best way to learn about all the moving parts of real estate. I first met Jon when I moved to Washinton in 2014. Alec sold me my first house in 2015, and shortly after we officially closed, I joined the team. It is amazing to be a part of a team that truly cares about their clients and giving back to the community. I have been so fortunate to have the opportunity to grow personally and professionally alongside the best group of individuals. When I am not working, I am spending all my time with my family. I have two beautiful girls to keep up with. We love to play soccer, have dance parties, climb on our rock wall, and stomp in puddles on rainy days!

My passion for people comes in handy when I get the chance to greet clients who come into the office! I get equally excited for treats and my little sister Rory. When I'm not at the office, I'm napping at my mom's feet. Preferably under the desk in all of the computer wires. You can't beat a summer day and jumping in the lake! I know our team will work doggone hard for you and your furry family members too! -WOOF
