About John

In his years in commercial real estate, John brings insight, not only as a highly trained broker and realtor but also as a former business owner. John has owned and operated businesses in the lower mainland and has successfully sold them. He knows what it’s like to sell a family business passed through generations, he knows what it’s like to own a business and build it up to be ready for sale. And he knows how to sell them. John specializes in selling companies located in the Greater Vancouver area and the Fraser Valley which generate annual revenues between $1M and $30M.

As a business broker, his sales stats are impressive. He has successfully brought 99% of the businesses he has brokered to closure. Typically, the average success rate on businesses listed is only 35-40% sold.  He attributes his success to finding viable businesses, placing the correct value on them, cutting through the legal jargon, and knowing how to close the deal. The rest he puts down to presentation, valuation and the powerful global marketing presence of NAI. Together they are a hard-hitting team. Give John a call and get him batting for you: (604) 230-9941.
