John is the broker & owner of RE/MAX Service First, and is proud to be located in the same city he grew up in. John named the company “RE/MAX Service First” because of his desire to provide real estate services with a “Service First” approach and attitude. John learned early in life that service to people is how life and business should be.
John grew up on the northwest side of Waukesha, then known as the town of Pewaukee. He is a proud graduate of Catholic Memorial, the University of Wisconsin – Whitewater, where he obtained his BBA – Marketing. John also holds a Master’s Degree in Management from Cardinal Stritch University.
John’s “service” roots began when he was 19 years old and he joined the Pewaukee Fire Department as a Firefighter. John learned the true meaning of “Service First” when helping people as all firefighters do when called upon. John’s introduction to public service would extend into law enforcement, where he worked for a few departments as a police officer. In Glendale, John was a DARE and juvenile officer, assigned to help kids in the communities the Glendale schools served. John’s passion for keeping kids safe and away from the extreme dangers in life created a great bond between the children and the police department. John also served his fellow police officers as a trainer, mentor, and teacher at various training academies in SouthEastern Wisconsin.
John began managing and owning property in 1994. He assisted landlords manage their properties, screen applicants, handle contractors & repairs, while managing rent rolls as well. He still owns real estate and is a great resource to those people looking to buy, sell, or invest in real estate holdings.
In 2011 John obtained his Wisconsin real estate license and began helping people buy and sell real estate. With his history, he brings an extremely unique skill set to his clients. His client’s directly benefit from decades of knowledge as it relates to homes. Since obtaining his license John has sold nearly 400 homes – which ranks him in the top 1% nationwide for sales according to Trulia.com. John’s Team has sold over 600 properties since that time as well – unbelievable!
In 2016 John decided it was time to create his vision and open his own real estate firm. John’s firm is committed to helping others achieve their dreams. This is evident amongst his team and his company agents as they too subscribe to this belief. Our agents subscribe to the company’s 12 Point of Culture, and commit to placing our client’s needs ahead of our own. John is committed to the education of his clients and his customers, his agents. He strives to educate and empower them to be the best they can for their clients.
John is married to his wife, Samantha, and they enjoy their time with their 3 dogs, all rescued. They are definitely part of their family and they firmly believe the dogs adopted them. In his spare time John loves to golf and is a Green Bay Packer season ticket holder.
John and RE/MAX Service First is a regular supported of the Waukesha Sheriff’s Department K9 organization, the West Allis Police Department K9 organization, Milwaukee Brewers’ Marcus Hanel’s “Koos for Kids” fundraiser, and more. John is also a “Home for Heroes” affiliate which rewards law enforcement, military, firefighters, EMS, teachers and healthcare workers with a Hero award check after closing.
As your local full-time agent, I’ll be there for you – CHARGING ahead and ensuring a successful transaction. Solid real estate experience (135+ career sales in excess of $25 million) assures you that I’ll be able to anticipate problems and prevent them from manifesting. It also means I’ve learned how to handle just about any type of potential difficulty without running elsewhere for advice.
Communication. It’s the single most important thing in any real estate transaction: Communication between you and me, communication with your title company or lender, and communication with the other party’s agent.
Here’s my promise: You’ll be able to reach me when you need me, and so will everyone else. It’s the hallmark of my success. Communication builds trust, and trust results in a successful transaction.
I’ll know I’ve succeeded when you tell your friends and family that I did a spectacular job like these past clients have:
“On the buying side, Annette knew exactly what we were looking for & went out of her way to find us something in our price range in the location of our choice. She worked with our lender & buyer to complete this transaction expeditiously. On the selling side she was just as personable, giving us guidance in how to stage our house & the price to list it at. Our house sold quickly. We would recommend her to anyone we know looking to sell or buy real estate as she is with you all the way, keeping you informed every step of the way. ”
“Annette is an absolute pleasure to work with! She is an active listener and takes her time to understand buying needs and caters her plans accordingly. As an individual, she is polite, inquisitive, proactive and incredibly honest. She accomplishes everything with a noticeable degree of integrity and competency that is difficult to find these days. ”
