John has had over 30 years experience in the Financial Services business in the United States. For more than half of those years, he was involved in the financing of residential and commercial real estate.
He was not only involved in analyzing and approving real estate transactions but in most cases involved in the management of lenders in a regional market. His experience has taken him across the Southeast United States and as far West as Phoenix, Arizona, and Maui, Hawaii and as far North as New York City.
In addition to his financial background, John obtained his Real Estate License in 1997 and joined his wife, Dale in her real estate practice. Since 1997, John and Dale have had the opportunity to sell almost $200 million in residential, commercial and investment real estate. This sum put them in an exclusive group of real estate professionals in the country.
John and Dale began developing single family projects in the French Lowlands of St Martin in 1999 and have successfully built and sold luxury homes in the area. They also purchased, improved and resold several undeveloped residential building lots in the Lowlands
During this time period, John and Dale operated a Construction Management Company as well as a Consulting Company to assist buyers and clients who wanted to build on the Island. Their long-term relationships with the local architects, builders, legal representatives, and sub-contractors enabled them to make the process of buying and building outside of the United States a much smoother process.
John’s latest development is Shore Pointe at Cupecoy. It is a unique and luxurious community of 16 Villas on the ocean at Cupecoy Beach. It quickly became the most successful high end development on the Island. John managed the entire development from arranging the initial financing for the land purchase and construction costs, to design and infrastructure development, overseeing construction and in charge of all marketing and sales for the development.
Through these experiences John has come to know the intricacies of living and doing business on both sides of the Island. Having successfully bought, sold, built and developed real estate in both the Dutch Lowlands and the French Lowlands he has gained knowledge that is invaluable to buyers and sellers in the area. His reputation and relationships with all the local bankers, real estate people, notaries and attorneys, builders and contractors provide a valuable resource to his clients and will insure a smooth, successful transaction whether you’re buying or selling in the Lowlands.
