REALTOR®, PureWest Christie’s – Whitefish, Montana

The old adage “I wasn’t born here, but I got here as soon as I could” rings true for me.  Although I’m from Texas originally, my heart has always been in the mountains.  My Texas roots did teach me the value of treating others with respect, being kind, and instill a love for the land and outdoors.  My family and I moved to Whitefish to raise our kids in a small mountain town and to enjoy all that Montana has to offer.  I’d love to offer you the same opportunity!

I graduated from Texas A&M University with a BBA in Business Management and went directly into the US Air Force, where I served as a Combat Systems Officer on the C-130 aircraft for nearly 12 years.   I spent the next decade working as a Real Estate Broker and Investor in Central Texas specializing in residential sales, new construction, investment properties, and short-term rentals. 

My specialties include Residential & Second Home Sales, Investment & Income Producing Properties, New Construction, and Farm & Ranch.  I work with both buyers and sellers to meet your real estate needs.  I also work closely with my wife, Jennifer, who is an interior designer.  Together, we offer Free Design Consultations and Home Staging to our clients!  Just ask how we can help sell your property at top dollar with home staging.  For buyers, we can design a space that perfectly meets your needs. 

When I’m not helping to find your next dream home, I love to spend time outdoors with my wife and 5 kids!  We love the uniqueness of each season in Montana and try to take advantage of all that each has to offer.  A few of our favorites include hiking, mountain biking, swimming, rafting, tubing, skiing, hunting, fishing, camping, and more!  I enjoy giving back to the local community by being actively involved in local groups, activities, non-profits, and churches.

I have bought many properties over the years and John was one of my favorite
and best agents I have worked with. His knowledge of the STR market was the
best I have found (after buying STR in 5 states). He was responsive to request
and quick to communicate. I look forward to buying another property with him
as soon as possible.

I recently had the pleasure of working with John to purchase a short-term rental property in Montana. From start to finish, his expertise and dedication was evident. He demonstrated a deep understanding of the market, providing invaluable guidance and insights throughout the process. His responsiveness and attention to detail ensured a smooth transaction, and his negotiation skills helped us secure a fantastic deal. I am grateful for his professionalism and highly recommend him to anyone seeking a real estate agent for short-term rental investments.
