John is a graduate of Indiana University and hails from Indianapolis, Indiana. Like most of us who have chosen to take up residence in sunny Southwest Florida, John kept coming down on vacation and never wanted to go back to the snow and dreariness of our Northern Winters. He and his wife, Fran, moved to Fort Myers in 1986 and John immediately got his Real Estate License. Although always keeping active in the Real Estate market, John’s professional background also includes planning and environmental consulting. He was a partner and Sr. Vice President at a local engineering company through the building boom.
John held his license at another residential real estate office before choosing to join VIP Realty Group based on their long standing reputation of providing excellent customer service. VIP is the oldest Real Estate Company in Lee County and ranked in the Top 50 Real Estate Companies in Florida.
John has two teenagers who have kept him active coaching and watching a variety of activities and is active in Riverside Church.
“We purchased our first Florida home from John. During the process he was exceptionally patient and seemed to have a six sense when it came to our likes. We have stayed in contact with him since our purchase continuing to monitor property values. We would highly recommend John to anyone looking for a home.” L.B.Hobs
