John was born and raised in the lower mainland. Prior to his career in Real Estate, John enjoyed a career in the Forest Industry for 27 years. The last 14 years were in Management where John enjoyed great success from his dedication, fair treatment and professionalism. A back injury made him realize that it was time to make a change in careers, so he decided to move to a place he had always wanted to be and start a new career in something he has always had an interest in.;He moved to the Okanagan in 2003 and started a new career in Real Estate in 2004. Through hard work and dedication he received the Director’s Platinum Award for his first year in the Business and the Executive Club award for his first 5 months with Re/Max. John earned respect from his Clients and fellow Agents by treating them all the way he would like to be treated, with respect and honesty.;John was an avid baseball player, playing center field, a natural athlete he enjoyed playing most sports, therefore;one of his favorite summer weekend getaways is a trip to Seattle’s Safeco Field to take in a live game, particularly against the Jays, both teams being favorites. Another favorite summer activity, time permitting of course, is to relax and soak up the rays of the Okanagan sun. He has absolutely no regrets moving to the Okanagan, the weather, the people, the pace of life, what more could a person ask for!
