THE TEAM CONCEPT
Think about all of the people involved in making your favorite resort the experience it is: Bellmen, check-in clerks, maids, designers, architects, builders, investors and so forth. Every person, whether you see them or not, plays a specific role in creating a holistic and enjoyable experience for you.
The real estate industry is largely comprised of individual agents who manage every part of a real estate transaction. That’s like asking the valet guy to cook and deliver your breakfast, make your bed, design the lobby, and build the pool!
To optimize this old approach for our clients, we have adopted a team model in which each member of our team has a specific role and brings a unique skill set and expertise to their position.
So take a breath, relax, and know that our team is here to give you a world-class resort experience!
Growing up, John’s father told him that he could be anything he wanted to be, except for a banker or a Real Estate Agent. So, in 2003, after earning a Finance degree from Arizona State University, John promptly began a full-time career in real estate. Now, of the more than forty thousand agents in Phoenix, John ranks in the top 25 and his dad has decided it's ok for him to be a Realtor after all.
One of John’s greatest strengths is in seeing connections that are not always obvious. His ability to think laterally has secured deals and solved problems for our clients that would otherwise seem impossible. For example, in seeing that clients often struggle with purchasing a new home at the same time they need to sell theirs, John created a system in which our clients can “trade up” their homes, optimizing the auto industry’s approach to the same problem.
John has also assembled a passionate team to support our clients in every facet of buying or selling their homes. He is proud to be the catalyst of change within the real estate industry and within the lives of his now thousands of past clients.
