I grew up in Williamsburg, VA in a real estate family. Both my grandfather and father had successful careers in commercial real estate business. I spent my summers coming to Duck to visit my grandparents and I fell in love with the area and after a few years selling commercial real estate in Virginia, I relocated to the Outer Banks. I have since bought and sold numerous investment homes that I flipped and self managed on Airbnb, which led me to getting my NC Real Estate License. My partner Katie and I welcomed our first child, a baby girl, in early 2021. Don't be surprised if you see one of us toting her around to showings... after all, we are a real estate family and we want to help your family find a home! Using my personal experience as a buyer and seller of my own investment properties, I will bring that expertise to help you buy and sell here on the Outer Banks.

    In my spare time I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family and our dogs around this beautiful place we call home, surfing, photography and traveling near and far. Of course, my biggest passion is investing in real estate - primarily short term rentals in various markets around North Carolina and abroad.

    My Client Testimonials

    We cant recommend John more! The challenge of not only finding a house in the outer banks market, but ALSO getting us the home of our dreams! John ran around like crazy viewing homes for us, because we couldn’t travel to see them. He sent video after video and got to know us enough to give us the details we needed. The market in OBX is a wild one (as well as many others). Pick someone who will pair you with your house and fight until you get it. Thanks John FOR REAL!!! - Tom M. (Zillow Review)
    John was phenomenal and his expertise came in handy as we were not from the area. He found us the perfect home and negotiated such a great deal for us. He always responded to our questions quickly and was professional. Being realtors ourselves, we had high expectations and he surpassed them. 10/10 would highly recommend John! - Caitlin F. (Zillow Review)
    John is THE local expert! We have been searching for the perfect combination of great family beach home and great investment opportunity. John showed us the path to find the perfect place. With his expertise on short term rentals in the area he was able to confidently advise us on the type of return we could expect on different properties. If the property worked, John would quickly get a showing and do a live video call with us, all the while giving his opinion on condition, location, etc. Once we chose the home he advised on all the contract intricacies and offer terms to set us apart to WIN the house against the competition. After we were under contract John was there guiding us through the process all the way until the finish line. Truly a local expert, and a great resource for anyone looking to buy in the Outer Banks! - Phillip B. (Zillow Review)

    How To Create An Inviting Laundry Room

    We can all agree that doing laundry is probably not the way you want to spend the day off. This disdain may even make your laundry room one of your least favorite rooms in your house. However, just because laundry can be an arduous task doesn't mean your laundry room has to be an unwelcoming, dark space full of clutter. In fact, a well-organized space can actually make you feel more focused and productive. A bright, clean space can even put you in a better headspace to complete your least favori...

    Introducing A New Pet To Your Pet Household

    The joys of pet ownership are bountiful and endless. Between cute kitten "biscuits" and evening walks with man's best friend, many homeowners don't feel their family is complete until bringing a pet into the home. In fact, according to the 2021-2022 National Pet Owners Survey, 70% of American households own at least one pet. At roughly 69 million families with a dog and 45 million families with a cat, it goes without saying that we love our fur kids—and if one pet makes for a happy house, than 2...
