His unique background includes a B.S. from Catholic University and a M.A. from their School of Architecture, plus ten years of experience designing luxury homes. His evaluations of properties for homebuyers includes expertise in design, construction and renovation costs as well as his ability to supply all the relevant comparable sales, so they can make smart decisions.
John's knowledge of area real estate, plus his keen eye for design makes him the perfect listing agent, both in preparation and staging to give the properties optimum appeal and concise pricing for an optimum sale situation.
At the age of 25, John started an architecture firm with a colleague, and for ten years they have been designing high-end residential and commercial spaces throughout DC, Maryland and Virginia. Their firm has received acclaim in such publications as Home & Designand Dwell.
By 2011, John discovered that he had unique capabilities for real estate sales. Not only that, but the satisfaction of knowing how well he could find the right properties for buyers, and maximize value for sellers convinced John to go into residential real estate sales full-time.
His appreciation for good design gives him the competitive edge in the world of luxury real estate, and the gratitude of his clientele gives him tremendous positive emotional feedback. " I truly fall in love with the properties I prepare for market and list, and that's how I am able to get optimum prices for my clients."

"Working with John was a dream. This wasn't our first rodeo, but it was our first time buying a house in the DC area. John was amazing every step of the way from narrowing down our list of neighborhoods to ultimately closing the deal. We had heard how competitive it was, but seeing is believing! We really appreciated John's knowledge and expertise when it came to negotiating. It's a full contact sport out there, and it was great having John on our team."

"As a real estate lawyer, I have worked with dozens of agents over the years in a variety of different contexts (residential, commercial, multi-family, mixed use, leasing etc.) John is head and shoulders above all of them. I was so impressed by his knowledge and understanding of value in a complex and fast-moving market, that when it came time to buy a new home for my own family, we hired John. I give him my strongest possible recommendation. Hire him and don't look back, its a no-brainer."
- Richard Bianco
"We had a fabulous experience in buying a house with John. Expert and professional in his field with a touch of friendliness, he made our move from Europe to the US memorable. He had the patience to show us different areas where we could potentially buy a house, based on our needs – considering also we had two young children (so knowledge about schools and local communities were essential). We can never thank him enough for our wonderful house and neighborhood!"
