John Beeney knows houses.
Since 1988, John has been happily up to his tool belt in sawdust and nails, having purchased, renovated and resold many properties in San Francisco and Los Angeles. Proud to be an agent at the brightest and most tech-savvy agency in San Francisco, John now offers his years of personal experience as a buyer, seller and developer to his clients.
Born and raised in a small rural farming community, John brings a rare combination of strong Midwestern work ethic, urban sophistication and an honest, unvarnished and approachable personal style to every transaction. Buyers love John`s “tell-it-like-it-is” approach, and his ability to communicate complex details with clear simplicity, while sellers know that his expertise in interior design, staging and marketing will help present their homes in the best and most profitable manner.
John’s success in real estate is rooted in a strong business background. He began his entrepreneurial exploration at age 8, selling greeting cards door to door, and he`s been working hard ever since. Upon graduating magna cum laude with a B.S. in Business-Psychology, John moved to San Francisco in 1986, where he founded and ran Letter Perfect, a successful direct-mail fundraising firm serving non-profit clients including the San Francisco Opera, San Francisco AIDS Foundation, the Asian Art Museum, Project Open Hand and California Medical Center Foundation. After owning the business for 11 years, John turned his full-time attention to real estate.
When he`s not tearing down walls or writing up contracts, you might find this multi-talented agent in a heavily padded, silent room – with a microphone. John is also a professional singer, whose voice has been heard by millions in numerous film and television projects, including The Matrix Reloaded and Revolutions, Jurassic Park III, HBO`s Angels in America, and Fox`s “King of the Hill,” among many others. In 2003, he appeared on a television special with singers including Natalie Cole, Chaka Khan and Sarah McLachlan, and he was thrilled to sing at the 75th Annual Academy Awards.
With the persistence of a bulldog but the sweetness of a puppy, John offers his clients a winning combination of dogged determination, gentle guidance and understanding, and plain old hard work. You may reach John at 415-310-0225, or email him at jbeeney@-re.com.
