John has a true passion for real estate. From studying the local market and finding new homes for first time home buyers to listing and selling homes so his client’s can move on to the next stage of life. Whether working with condos, single family homes or small farms, he values the opportunity to help make the experience more satisfying for everyone involved.
John’s business is built on integrity. He is not interested in selling his clients on a feature that may not meet their needs; instead, he guides them through the process explaining each detail. He considers himself an educator and advisor rather than a salesman.
John believes that honesty is not only the best policy, but it is the only way to operate. He communicates regularly with his clients during a transaction. He wants to be sure they stay informed during each step of the process and that any questions they may have, get answered.
John was raised in South Jersey on music and motorsports. He has been blessed to have had the opportunity to pursue those childhood hobbies professionally throughout his life. With music, he attended Belmont University in Nashville and spent several years working on Music Row with some of the biggest names in country music. With motorsports, John has been involved with sprint cars, karts, sports cars, motorcycles, Legends, Indy Cars and NASCAR. He has been to Daytona and Laguna Seca to Road America and Indianapolis. He has experienced the sport as a crew member, tech official, journalist, tire tech, sponsor rep and kart racer.
In 2009, John began his real estate career after ten years in the corporate world. He learned the business as a member of The DeSelms Team who was the #1 RE/MAX team in Tennessee and personal real estate team for financial expert and author, Dave Ramsey. John later spent time with the Ashton Real Estate Group at RE/MAX Elite and Benchmark Realty.
In 2011, he relocated to Charlotte with his wife and two children so they could take advantage of a couple exciting opportunities to work in motorsports. Since then, John has attended many GRAND-AM, ALMS and IMSA races while his wife works with one of the top teams in NASCAR.
After serving as a referral agent for the first couple of years in Charlotte, John joined Lead 2 Real Estate Group in 2014 and focuses on Charlotte, Concord, Harrisburg, Mint Hill, Matthews, Indian Trail, Waxhaw and Ballantyne areas.
