John Smith has been in the real estate industry over ten years and has been involved in the building industry for over 25 years. His easy-going manner helps him remain flexible and helpful in all the complexities of a real estate transaction. This flexibility and his knowledge of the building trades has enabled John to claim expertise in all facets of real estate, from residential to commercial, from condominiums to land assemblies.
The backbone of John's relationship with his clients is honesty. John offers his honest opinion in all circumstances and then "let the chips fall where they may". Far from casual, this attitude earns John the respect of his clients and the accurate communication essential in buying and selling real estate.
On the personal side, John has always trained and ridden horses. He was born in England and apprenticed as a jockey prior to becoming a steeplechase rider and continuing on to the "sport of kings", polo. As a polo pony trainer, John spent six years in Argentina, eventually settling on Vancouver Island where he is still an avid member of the Victoria Polo club. His travels have given John a well-rounded understanding of different cultures and Spanish as a second language. Outside of his real estate responsibilities, John can be seen daily riding and caring for his steeds, "Lauren" and "Fancy".
