"John was great to work with. He gave great advice and was very in tune with what we wanted." - Mathew A.


I have been a Boulder County resident for 53 years, currently residing in North Boulder with my wife Terry.  I have two grown children living in the area. I have been a licensed Realtor for 22 years.  I have helped hundreds of buyers and sellers accomplish their dreams of home ownership.  Prior to my career in real estate, I worked professionally in Urban Planning.   

Helping people find the right home is my passion. The buying and selling process can be complicated and stressful, but my skills in negotiating, problem solving, and market knowledge make the process smooth and understandable. The foundation of my business is honesty, integrity, and transparency.

I service buyers and sellers across Boulder County including Boulder, Erie, Gunbarrel, Lafayette, Louisville and the North Denver Markets. My specific expertise is in Boulder’s Dakota Ridge, Holiday and Northbriar neighborhoods in the NoBo community where I have sold over 35 properties.

I’m a graduate of the University of Colorado with a bachelor and master’s degrees. In my spare time I love to bike, hike, ski, practice yoga and spend time with the family.

We used John as our realtor for the second time this past year! Both of our buying experiences and our selling experience were great and seamless! The first time that we used John was when we were looking to buy our first home. This can be a very overwhelming process for a first time home buyer, however, John's knowledge and expertise of the market put us to ease and we found our perfect home. He communicated everything that we needed to know and was very honest throughout the whole process. Additionally, his background as a city planner proved very helpful as we considered our options for various pieces of property. Our great first experience led us to engage him as our realtor in June 2013 to sell our house and purchase another one. Again, with his help, patience, honesty and knowledge we were able to find a new home that not only met the needs of our growing family but also was in the perfect location. His honesty and integrity are unparalleled. I have recommended John to many of our friends who ultimately decided to use him which not only led to great results for them but also to them recommending John to their friends. I think that says a lot about a realtor! I would recommend John to anyone!

JOHN COULD NOT HAVE BEEN BETTER!! We never met face to face, yet he made our sale from 3 states away our easiest transaction yet. Excellent follow-through and judgement. Patient in a tough niche market. Clear communicator. Basically this guy doesn't get paid enough.

John was great to work with. He gave great advice and was very in tune with what we wanted. We worked with John on the sale of our old townhouse in Boulder and the purchase of our new house in Denver. Both experiences were very smooth and easy.
