He was named 2001 President, 1982 REALTOR® of the Year and 1979 Realtor-Associate® of the Year of the Naples Area Board of REALTORS®.

John authored PSYCHOLOGICAL SELLING, a sales training "bible," and in 2011 he was selected to the Madison WHO'S WHO of Executives and Professionals.

Prior to moving to Florida, John had spent a dozen years in broadcast station management in Toledo, Detroit, and Memphis.
