John was born in London and emigrated to NZ with his Kiwi wife Jenny in 1981 to see why NZ was such a popular place to visit for some many English people! He liked it so much he stayed and proudly now calls it home! John and Jenny have a adult son James who is studying tourism management at Lincoln and this allows John the time now to devote to selling real estate which has always been his passion, having owned over a dozen homes in NZ since arriving here.
John comes to Bayleys after some challenging senior management roles in NZ and UK in stock broking, shipping and international freight forwarding with special attention to sales /marketing and customer services. John owned and ran his own international freight company here in Auckland for almost 20 years from the early 90's, which was and still is a very successful company. After accepting a management buy out John then moved into a National Business Development role for the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport for three years. This role required a lot of membership development and event management in conjunction with a wide range of sponsors and promoting and arranging educational development in the logistics sector for all levels of current and future management.
After that John spent almost two years in business development for the Home Ideas Group which was very challenging with the building sector struggling in the recession but there are positive signs of recovery and a good time to move into real estate.
John is hard working and has enjoyed success at every level through dedicated hard work and repeat business from happy customers. John loves to see a deal through to a successful conclusion so any vendor or customer should be confident that John will do his utmost to get them the best deal possible and a happy outcome for all concerned.
John brings an energy, passion and commitment to his work that allows you to feel completely confident that you are getting the best service. His tireless dedication is matched with a a sense of humour, which is what you need during the often intense sales process. John works hard for you and the results for us were magic. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending John to anyone who wants an agent who cares as much about their property as they do.
