John's Bio

Born in Indianapolis, Indiana I have spent most of my life (with the exception of college and a business transfer) in the Midwest. After attending both Vanderbilt University and Indiana University I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration in 1980. Prior to my career in real estate I held numerous executive level positions in the relocation industry with Mayflower Transit and Allied Van Lines, respectively. My experience in the relocation industry, working with both corporate and individual clients, taught me the importance of providing the highest level of service and personal attention to every client, regardless of the size of the transaction. I have been helping my clients successfully buy and sell real estate for over 10 years. In December of 2012 I became a Sales Associate with Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate in downtown Sarasota. Since the relocation to Sarasota, I have become an active member of the community through organizations such as: The Downtown Partnership, Habitat for Humanity and Sertoma of Greater Sarasota. . In addition, I have achieved GRI status (Graduate Realtor® Institute), one of the highest educational certification available through the National Association of Realtors. My leisure time is spent: sailing, scuba diving and bicycling. Sarasota provides the perfect back drop for these activities. I also enjoy gardening at my home in the Museum Area on Sarasota’s north side. I have four grown children who I'm very proud of and who I love to visit in their home towns of Boulder, CO and Indianapolis, IN. In my prior professional life I spent a significant amount of time traveling to other communities around the country. I can’t think of another community that has as much to offer as Sarasota and I’m delighted to call it home! If you’re seeking professional, ethical real estate services, I hope you’ll consider contacting me in the near future.
