Licensed Oregon Broker - Specializing in Residential
As a child of real estate investors, John was immersed in the real estate world from a young age, and has been excited about real estate since he was a kid. He took the long route to turning his passion into his profession, by first earning a bachelor's degree from UC Santa Cruz in ecology and evolutionary biology. He also spent time as a scientific researcher, in outside sales, and as a bouncer. He enjoyed those experiences, but his interest in real estate could not be denied. Once he took the leap, he quickly found a love for working with local buyers and sellers purchasing their first condo or selling their long-term family home.
Working in the Portland area since 2019, John understands that each client is different, and each situation is unique. This is why he takes the time upfront to fully understand how he can best assist each person he works with. When it concerns his clients, he believes in a philosophy of transparency, that creating something of value has to lead first with integrity, which then creates a solid foundation to do great business together.
John feels fortunate to have discovered, through the peers and mentors who have guided him, a unique way of working in real estate that aligns with his personal and professional values; focusing on his clients and their needs with a long-term perspective, helping clients with real estate issues or questions wherever and whenever they arise. Moreover, he views himself not just as a Realtor but as an adviser, helping clients not only to buy or sell, but to strategize toward long-term wealth building with real estate.
John and his lovely wife, Rhiannon are proud parents to adorable, almost two-year-old, Arlo. When he has free time, John is an avid and expert bird watcher, loves exploring Portland’s vibrant food and music scene, and it's easy access to nature with his family, as well as playing the drums in his dad-rock band with friends.
