John has nearly 30 years of commercial real estate experience in the Puget Sound region. During that time, John has represented institutional owners, REITS, developers, and high net worth individuals. Representing a diverse portfolio of shopping centers and street level retail, John has completed over 5 million square feet of retail leases. These leases range in size from 60,000 square foot anchor leases with national tenants to 1,000 square foot specialty shop leases with national and local businesses in both urban and suburban submarkets. The value of these leases is more than $400 million in rental income.

John is known for his attention to detail, ethics, and, above all, his unwavering commitment to maintaining the highest standards of fiduciary responsibility to his clients. A skilled negotiator who has deep knowledge of the market, John is focused on working collaboratively with his clients to exceed the goals they have for creating and increasing their asset values. As a true partner and team player, John provides his clients with his honest assessment of each opportunity and challenge, always keeping an eye on maximizing long term returns. While his approach and results speak for themselves, they are also validated by the multiple long-term relationships he has developed with his clients, including many clients with whom he has worked his entire career. Outside of work, John enjoys spending time with his family, mountain biking, playing guitar, singing, and dreaming about having a garage full of classic cars.
