John started his career in the financial services industry as a certified financial advisor after graduating with a Business degree from the University of Portland.  He then got introduced to the mortgage industry and soon figured out the power of utilizing other people’s money to invest in real, tangible assets, which created a natural progression to get into the wonderful world of real estate.

Born and raised on Oahu, he considers living in Hawaii a privilege due to the high cost of living.  He has always had a strong desire to help people find a way to call the islands home. Understanding the ins and outs of the island lifestyle, whether you’re looking for a home in Kapolei or Kailua, his experience growing up here and knowledge of the local market is unmatched.  His background in real estate financing has made him an ideal resource for clients looking to buy a home that have a trusted advisor assisting them through the entire process - from getting preapproved for financing to picking up your keys!

When not selling real estate, he enjoys spending time with his wife, two kids and chocolate labrador retriever usually at the beach!  In between soccer games, ballet recitals and cub scout outings, you’ll find him out kayaking, SUPing or just hanging out with family and friends!

An active real estate investor himself, John is eager to help first time homebuyers and seasoned investors find their perfect piece of paradise. John currently holds licenses as a real estate broker (RB-22267) and licensed mortgage originator in the State of Hawaii (NMLS #372055).
