John became a licensed real estate broker in New York in 1982 and started a real estate brokerage firm in Babylon, N.Y., handling residential and commercial sales, rentals, as well as property management. Additionally, John became a registered mortgage broker offering mortgage loans on behalf of Chase, Citibank, Wells Fargo just to name a few. Prior to his real estate career John worked for a Dutch multinational company as a Ship Broker buying, selling and chartering tankers and dry cargo vessels worldwide. Eventually, John started his own company in this field representing companies such as Owen Corning Fiberglas, Union Carbide and Armco Steel to name a few as well as many South American oil companies such as CVP, Petroperu, Ecopetrol, Enap and others.
In December 1979 feeling stressed and cold in the New York winter, John and his wife, Jo Ann, headed south for an escape and ended up in the Keys for the first time. They immediately fell in love with the area and bought a condo in Key Colony Beach. What began as a getaway or refuge would eventually become a permanent home in 2006. John enjoys his time in the Key out on the water, enjoying friends and neighbors and spending time with his daughters and grandchildren on their frequent visits.
