John, a native San Franciscan and resident, started his real estate career selling residential properties in Orinda, Lafayette, and Moraga. His career in the ensuing years has spanned all aspects of real estate sales, including development projects, apartment buildings, retail investment properties, and office and industrial buildings.
John joined Compass and has been recognized as a top producer and sales leader over the years.
Most of John's buyers and sellers come to him by referral. Clients recommend him because he is a seasoned professional who is committed to providing the best possible service - from the first meeting to the closing of a transaction and beyond. As detailed in his client testimonials, his clients know he is diligent, trustworthy, and appreciate his friendly-yet-direct approach, which gives them confidence in his ability to get the job done.
John has a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration from UCLA. He is a licensed California real estate broker, a member of the San Francisco Board of Realtors, and the National Association of Realtors, and has been a volunteer for Project Open Hand in San Francisco. He also contributes a portion of his brokerage fee on each transaction to the Compass Community Fund -- which distributes monies to various charitable organizations in San Francisco and the Bay Area.
" After a year of unsuccessfully working with another agent to purchase a home, John was recommended to me by a friend. John was available to us at all times of the day and night and was able to quickly consolidate and hone in on our preferences to show us only homes that met our criteria in a difficult market. John is friendly, dedicated, patient, low-pressure, and very market knowledgeable. He diligently guided us to a successful purchase and made the entire home buying process from start to finish efficient, fun, and stress free. It was a pleasure working with John, and I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home. " - Ellen Luong
