About John

I started my real estate career in Wisconsin with Shorewest Realtors in 2015. Similar to

Baird and Warner they are a multi generation family owned realtor with a rich history in the

Milwaukee community. Located in Lake Geneva I built may career around seasonal and

weekend homes with many of my clients coming from the Chicago area. With the

recommendation of so many of these clients I recently added Illinois to my real estate repertoire. And so here I am, now a broker with Baird and Warner in the Lincoln Park office, close to my residence in East Lakeview.

Before real estate my background was in architecture and construction. I have a BFA in

Interior Architecture from Northern Illinois University and my MA in Historic Preservation from

Savannah College of Art and Design. Because of this background I am able to walk my clients through any property demonstrating to them the potential of the subject property’s current value or future potential as their “dream home.”

Another trait I take from my previous life is my ability to work with a variety of

personalities. Though the years in the corporate world I gained responsibility to the level of

senior management. This allowed me the opportunity to work with various levels of

responsibility in multiple large organizations.

Sellers have an emotional attachment to their homes and sometimes this can

overshadow their decision making when selling. My job is to remove that emotion and guide

them to making the right decision as to what it will take to sell their home.

Similarly, buyers experience these same roadblocks. My job is to weigh the pros and

cons for each home they preview so in the end, they've reached the best decision when it

comes to that perfect home. Also, like most people, I love a good value. This comes into play when presenting an educated offer that is the best for my client and their chosen home.

So whether you’re in the market to sell your home or buy a new home or possibly both, I

would welcome the opportunity to work with you in what is possibly the biggest decision you will make in your lifetime.

Sincerely, John
