"John was super great to work with. A very smooth transaction!"

- Deborah Hanson | Realty ONE Group Fox | September 2022

"John was great to work with. He walked me through every step of the way, always keeping me well informed about the market, and potential buyers. He did a great job making arrangements to prepare the house, including repairs, painting, and cleaning - and I was very happy with the results. I live in Nashville, and also have a home in Florida. I did NOT want to have to come to California to organize things - and because of his great help, I didn't need to."

- Dan K. | Nashville, TN | October 2022

Working with John for over 20 years on a variety of projects from basic point-of-sale material to major seasonal campaigns featured in the largest retailers around the country, he not only brought his expertise to the project but deeply engrained himself into the project to ensure its success. His creativity and attention to detail provided us with the necessary elements to complete and deliver it on time. John expects perfection and collaborates with us to make it happen.

John was very responsive and thorough. He was professional, friendly, and offered support that exceeded our expectations. Well done!

I worked with John at two companies and appreciated his reliability and honesty in the workplace. He was able to work well with a variety of personalities and used his creativity and problem solving skills in marketing to maximize company resources while delivering excellent results that helped move the company forward.

John was always organized and efficient, working seamlessly with other departments in the effort to ensure that his deliverables were on time and with the highest level of quality. John’s sense of personal responsibility and accountability will serve him well for his real estate clients.

Napa Valley Is My Home

Born and raised in Napa, I am a third generation resident. After graduating from Saint Mary's College, I returned to start a family and began a marketing career in the wine industry that lasted over 20 years. During that time, I held senior roles at some of the largest, most successful wineries in the country and was responsible for national brands as well as new product development and marketing operations.

Dealing with the needs of sales people around the country, managing outside vendors and collaborating with internal company teams, my success was born from developing solid relationships, strong communication, and working towards a common goal. As a real estate agent, all of these skills are essential to ensuring that my clients have a pleasurable, stress-free experience when buying or selling a home.
