John vacationed in Cashiers in 1996 from the Florida Keys where he had cigar shops after retiring from Defense contracting in Washington, DC. Not finding a “decent” cigar anywhere in Cashiers, he came back two weeks later and opened Cigars of Cashiers. After two years of back and forth from the Keys to the Mountains, John decided that mountain living was for him. As the cigar boom waned, John got his Real Estate license and found his new niche here on the Highlands/Cashiers plateau. As full-time, year-round realtor, John has an intimate knowledge of the plateau. Coupling that knowledge with his “No Nonsense/Tell it like it is/Win-Win” approach to real estate, John has turned clients into loyal friends which has resulted in numerous referrals. John just doesn’t list and sell real estate, he’ll find what you’re looking for and help you accomplish your real estate goals.
