John is a third generation REALTOR® who started answering phones in his grandmother's office when he was just 10 years old. A native Californian, he grew up in Carpinteria, and then moved north to earn a degree in Social Work at California State University, Chico. He also went on to earn a Master of Science degree in Special Education.
He has served on various positions with the Santa Barbara Association of REALTORS®, both as Membership Chairman and Vice President of the Association's Board of Directors. Most recently, John was honored to be the Association's President and also served as a state Director for the California Association of REALTORS®.
John attributes his impressive 80% repeat and referral client rate to the quality service that he offers. "My customers know that I take care of them during the transaction and beyond," he says, "and that keeps them working with me."
He also appreciates the balance that he has created in his life. He and his partner Robert Johns enjoy wine tasting, adding to their antique clock and lacquered bronze frog collections, and exploring the world. At home, his downtime is spent with two ASAP-adopted cats, Ricky and Rudy.
