John is a stalwart in the real estate industry in Tauranga having been part of it since 1984. He bought a franchise of the Challenge Realty group in Mount Maunganui in 1990 and the following year he became a licensed agent through the AREINZ.
After eight years as a franchise owner of Challenge Realty, LJ Hooker bought the group and John's office was rebranded. With this, John decided to expand his reach opening an office in Papamoa. John ran offices in both Mount Maunganui and Papamoa from 1998-2017, winning the award of franchise owner of the year in 2002/2003 and 2009/2010.
Earlier this year John sold his franchise but has stayed on to impart his knowledge to the team and customers. With his vast experience in real estate in the Mount and Papamoa, John has well deserved his reputation as an 'expert'.
