Founder & CEO
John’s goal is to make the process of buying and selling real estate as easy, worry-free and as fun as possible for you while meeting your needs and exceeding expectations. His sensitivity, ability to listen and assimilate information means he will work at your pace and represent you affectively and truthfully. Experience, intuition and timely communication lead to mutually beneficial opportunities.
With an appreciation for Nashville’s urban settings, John often works in neighborhoods like Hillsboro/West End, Belmont, 12 South, Richland, Germantown and East Nashville. However, with hundreds of transactions valued at more than $125 million under his belt, his experience spans all of Nashville and surrounding counties.
John has been practicing real estate since 2001 working exclusively with Village Real Estate. Prior to that, like so many in Nashville, he was in the music business. John’s clients and friends know him as a calm, focused and creative presence. These traits enable him to consistently achieve top-producing status for which he is recognized by his peers and the Greater Nashville Association of Realtors. His awards are numerous including the Life Member Award of Excellence. Showing dedication to his craft through education, he has earned many credentials including Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR) and the Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) as well as the new Green Certification.
More importantly, though, John creates strong working relationships with clients and other real estate professionals promoting success for all who get to work with him. The vast majority of his business comes from repeat clients and referrals—a strong demonstration of their appreciation and enthusiasm.
On his “off” time, you will find him with his two sons, Calvin and Bram. His family offers him perspective and the drive to serve, as well as the means to balance his life through time with them. Painting, photography, listening to music and enjoying the great outdoors round out his life.
Whether you are selling your current home or buying the next one, your experience will be richer and your rewards will be greater with John as your agent.
