A Little More About John:
When he is not practicing real estate, John enjoys playing guitar, singing, and writing the occasional song. He also loves to break a sweat while snowboarding and playing tennis and ping pong (competitive ping pong is no joke!). Over the years, John has had the opportunity to explore Kenya, the Galapagos, Machu Picchu, Cambodia, and Europe and would love to trade travel tales any time.
