Quality Assurance Manager
John is a rarity in these parts — a second-generation Wilmingtonian! And his roots in real estate are second-generation as well. His family business is commercial real estate and after earning a degree in Communication Studies at UNCW in 2013, John began a successful career in carpentry, cabinetry, sales and construction supply.
A salesman at heart, John worked as Territory Sales Representative for M&N Construction Supply and during his tenure there, he more than tripled annual sales for the house account. He then did a two-year stint as Territory Sales Manager for Solution Matrix, a medical device company, before returning to his first love of real estate.
As Quality Assurance Manager for Trusst, John works closely with both the crew and the homeowner to ensure all punch list items are completed in a timely manner and to the owners’ satisfaction. According to John, he draws on a wide variety of skills and experience in this position, including technical expertise, construction knowledge, salesmanship and diplomacy.
John is married to his wife Sarah and they have two young children, his son Silas and daughter Arwen (named after one of their favorite characters in the Lord of the Rings.) When he is not working, John and his family enjoy time on and in the ocean, and particularly enjoy surfing and snorkeling. He is an avid musician and plays guitar, drums and piano. And although he doesn’t play competitively anymore, John once ranked in the top 25 tennis players in the state for his age division and won several state championships while a student at Cape Fear Academy. John and Sarah are active members of Christ Community Church and whenever time allows, they enjoy family time at Airlie Gardens, where they were also married.
