Buying a home is an exciting, life-changing experience. I love helping people find their dream homes and making them comfortable with each step of the real estate process.

I’ve lived in the DeKalb-Sycamore area my entire life, which means you’re more than my client – you’re my neighbor. I know this community inside and out and I can’t wait to show you how amazing it is.

Everything I’ve done in my life has been with the goal of helping people. Before entering real estate, I spent 13 years in the hearing health industry. I’ll listen carefully to you, and you can be sure I am always honest and upfront with what you need to know. I’ll never steer you wrong as we find the perfect place for you to live your life.

Outside of real estate, my interests include traveling, fashion, restaurants, and my mastiff, Maverick. I’m a personal growth junkie and I’m always open to recommendations of new books or podcasts. The relationships I get to build through my work are the cherry on top of doing what I love to do.

With over a decade of experience in the banking and commercial/residential real estate markets John is able to help you smoothly complete the buying or selling process and get you to enjoying your new home, farm or investment as soon as possible.

In his free time John enjoys spending time with his wife and kids on their small farm growing fresh sweet corn, watermelon, and pumpkins for all to enjoy.

When I was a kid, my family would go on outings to tour model homes. Real estate was almost a family pastime. It’s only natural that when I grew up, I would feel drawn to helping people find their dream homes.

I’ve always loved the way people’s lives are reflected in their homes. To help my clients find their perfect place, I listen carefully. I get to know you and your dreams then tailor your home search to be just what you need. When you walk in the door of the right place, you know you are home. I want to get you to that moment as quickly and smoothly as possible.

I’ve lived in the Sycamore area for 15 years. The communities in this area are close-knit and welcoming – when someone needs support, the whole community steps up. As someone who is living, working, and raising children here, I can tell you this area is one of a kind.
