Experience our "Service First" Attitude and Dedication to You!
John is the broker & owner of RE/MAX Service First, and is proud to be located in the same city he grew up in. John named the company “RE/MAX Service First” because of his desire to provide real estate services with a “Service First” approach and attitude. John learned early in life that service to people is how life and business should be.
John grew up on the northwest side of Waukesha, then known as the town of Pewaukee. He is a proud graduate of Catholic Memorial, the University of Wisconsin – Whitewater, where he obtained his BBA – Marketing. John also holds a Master’s Degree in Management from Cardinal Stritch University.
John’s “service” roots began at the age of 19 years old when he joined the Pewaukee Fire Department as a Firefighter. John learned the true meaning of “Service First” when helping people as all firefighters do when called upon. John’s introduction to public service would extend into law enforcement, where he worked for a few departments as a police officer. In Glendale, John was a DARE and juvenile officer, assigned to help kids in the communities the Glendale schools served. John’s passion for keeping kids safe and away from the extreme dangers in life created a great bond between the children and the police department. John also served his fellow police officers as a trainer, mentor, and teacher at various training academies in South Eastern Wisconsin.
John began managing and owning properties when he was 23. He assisted landlords managing their properties, screening applicants, handling contractors and repairs, while managing rent rolls as well. He still owns real estate and is a great resource to those people looking to buy, sell, or invest in real estate holdings.
In 2011 John obtained his Wisconsin real estate license and began helping people buy and sell real estate. With his history, he brings an extremely unique skill set to his clients.

Since obtaining his license John has sold nearly 490 homes – which ranks him in the top 1% nationwide for sales according to Trulia.com. John’s Team has sold over $390 million in real estate – unbelievable!
In 2016 John decided it was time to create his vision and open his own real estate firm. John’s firm is committed to helping others achieve their dreams. This is evident amongst his team and his company agents as they too subscribe to this belief.
