John grew up in Buffalo, NY, but chose Minnesota to put down roots and raise a family. He and his wife Erica have two young children, Connor and Maya, and live in St Anthony Village. He graduated from the State University of New York in 2004 with degrees in Spanish and adolescent education. In 2012, John graduated from the University of Colorado with a Master’s degree in Urban and Regional Planning. This education allows John to view real estate plays through a unique lens that takes into consideration zoning, land use, walkability and transportation. Additionally, John is an active real estate investor in the Twin Cities. He spent five years working at the most profitable property management company in the country! Owning his own rental portfolio gives John a distinct perspective and he can speak from experience when walking investors through new deals. He believes in transparency and integrity above all else. When he’s not working on his properties, John loves to play with his kids, travel, rock climb, bike and craft the perfect stereo system.
