Duncan Real Estate REALTOR®
British Columbia Canada
John has lived nearly all his life on Vancouver Island. Growing up, his father’s work required that the family move around fairly frequently, so John has had addresses in Victoria, Port Alberni, Qualicum, Chemainus, Ladysmith, Duncan and Mill Bay where he now lives with his wife Lucia. To say that he knows Southern Vancouver Island would be an understatement!
With a double major in Economics and Psychology from the University of Victoria, John started work as a commercial property manager before becoming a mortgage broker. He started in real estate in 2009, going from a desk job to one that allowed him to get outside and engage more with clients, a move well suited to his gregarious nature. With ten years of experience gained from his career in mortgage and lending, including a strong understanding of finance, it is John’s goal to share his expertise with his real-estate clients.
When he is not showing homes to clients on the weekend, John enjoys kiteboarding and biking. An avid interest in photography led him into a year’s stint at the Vancouver Film School’s Multimedia Program in 1999 where he studied extensively about design, photography and videography, skills easily transferable to his work as a Realtor. As a specialist in the Cowichan Valley area, John is also active in his community as an environmentalist, volunteering with the Cowichan Estuary Restoration & Conservation Association.
