John has lived in the Peoria area since he was in third grade. After high school, he served 6 years in the navy, active and in the reserves. After the Navy, he spent time working at Caterpillar. Over time, his interests turned to Real Estate. He began flipping numerous homes and doing appraisals. Over the years, he had done hundreds of various handyman projects for customers, family and himself. He had met a lot of people through his 30 years of doing Real Estate jobs and one of the people he met was Adam Merrick. As he got to know him, he knew he wanted to make that transition in his real estate career to an agent and work for Adam Merrick himself.
“My advice to anyone thinking about getting into real estate – ask a lot of questions, there is a lot to learn. Choose your mentors wisely and find mentors who are truly willing to spend the time needed with you to help you grow into a long-term successful agent.”
