John has 38 years of professional experience, working with non-profit organizations for 26 years and 12 years full time in the real estate industry.
John’s work in the non-profit world included fund raising, education, cultural anthropology, comparative religious training, cross-cultural communication, and community development.
Prior to getting into real estate full time, John became a landlord of a rental property and purchased raw land in a rural community in southern Virginia where he learned about the timber industry.
During the real estate crash in 2007, John turned his efforts toward learning more about investing in distressed properties in Northern Virginia.
When John moved to the Atlanta region in 2010, he was a full time, active real estate investor. Sandra Watkins was his real estate agent and they soon began doing real estate deals together. In 2011, John got his real estate license and has since been brokering sales transactions, building a property management company, and providing real estate services for investors with Sandra.
Over the past 10 years John has built a real estate business specializing in residential investment property, home sales, rentals, and property management.
