From the moment he began his career in real estate, John fell in love with the profession, finding that it was a natural fit for his personality and complemented his ability to understand peoples’ needs—even when they themselves may not. In addition, it drew on his past experience, while quenching his interest for all aspects relating to the home. After deciding he wanted to provide more for his family, John and his wife, Jennifer, sought to relocate to a more vibrant economy with greater lifestyle opportunities.
