PERSONAL SERVICE!

John was raised in the quiet historical neighborhood of San Roque. As a true local, he is deeply knowledgeable and intimate with the pure magic of this coastal paradise he has always called home.  His friendly nature, enthusiasm, and generous spirit shine through every aspect of his business and personal life.  John’s vast industry knowledge and experience places him in the top tier of respected real estate agents in the area, with an established, trusting, and loyal clientele as the well-earned benefits of a solid 30-year career.

As an insightful seasoned professional passionate about personalized service, his keen negotiating skills, discretion, and tenacious hands-on style have positively shaped his respected reputation. Sound representation according to John is pure and simple. He listens and responds to individual needs of his clients while staying laser focused on up-to-the-minute market conditions, new listings, and potential investment opportunities. Whether representing buyers or sellers, John relies on sound communication, constant attention to every detail, and implementation of the right course of action to bring a transaction to fruition.

John has established long-standing professional relationships within the real estate industry itself, and known by his peers, loan brokers, and escrow officers as an agent who gets things done, and, “… someone you want in your corner!”

His first introduction to real estate in 1985 was through business mentor and principal owner of Gene O’Hagan Associates.  John found real estate to be a comfortable fit and has remained loyal to an industry that offered him great success.  In 1996, along with a handful of seasoned agents, John was personally invited by Ed Edick and Renee Grubb to join what was then a “new” start-up real estate company, Village Properties.  John, along with Village Properties, are proud to be integral well-established members of Santa Barbara County’s esteemed real estate community. John is consistently in the top-ten producing agents companywide and has lived through ever-changing times with resilience.

“Having seen the changing landscape of real estate across three decades, I feel well versed in finding the upside in any market.”

 John is also currently the Girl’s Head Volleyball Coach at his alma mater, Bishop Diego High School; he played semi-pro baseball, was a general contractor with a masonry business in Oregon, and playing beach volleyball has long been his favorite past-time.

According to this happy Santa Barbara native,

“I’m proud to have been raised in this amazing hometown of mine. I married the love of my life and raised a family in Santa Barbara. I love what I do, and always grateful to help others to enjoy life in our little bit of paradise!”
