A little about me

and why I love real estate

A Marine and former Department of Defense contractor, John settled in the Florida Keys when he retired and opened a cigar shop. However, in 1996 fate intervened when he came to Cashiers on vacation. Not being able to find a “decent” cigar anywhere in Cashiers, he came back two weeks later and opened Cigars of Cashiers. After two years of commuting between the Keys and the mountains, John decided to make the mountains his permanent home. When the cigar boom eventually waned, John closed his cigar shop and obtained his real estate license. He has since found his niche on the Highlands-Cashiers plateau.

John has an intimate knowledge of the area as a full-time, year-round Realtor. Coupling that knowledge with his “no nonsense/tell it like it is/win-win” approach to real estate and his great sense of humor, John has turned clients into loyal friends who have in turn referred him to others.

John is not your average “list, sell, and leave” broker; he’ll be your ally who will take an active role in helping you accomplish your real estate goals, whatever they may be.
