About John

Born and raised in Pasadena, I have a unique knowledge and insight to this special area in Southern California. Finding my passion for real estate happened at the University of Arizona where in Tucson I earned a bachelors degree in Psychology with a minor in Spanish and Business. I purchased my first property in a struggling community and after a year of working with an amazing team of specialists, we turned a decaying six-unit apartment complex into something the up-and-coming community could be proud of. During my final semester at school I also obtained my real estate license in Arizona to gain a deeper understanding of this craft I quickly fell in love with; and after working with a real estate company in Phoenix, Arizona I have decided to head back to my roots of Pasadena to share and grow with the community I know and love. My philosophy, along with that of Compass, of persistent dedication, loyalty and integrity is the strongest facet of how I live my life and conduct my business. I look forward to sharing my knowledge and strengths with you so together we can add to the beauty and success of greater Pasadena.
