John Sharpe – Director of Operations
Born and raised in the city of Orange, John has witnessed firsthand the cultural diversity and growth of Orange County over the last four decades. From his early years traveling around the county with his father on their weekend adventures to his time working as an attractions host on the Matterhorn at Disneyland during college, John often reminisces about how a county once dominated by orange groves and eucalyptus trees has now become one of the most desirable locations to live within the United States.
While his parents were out of state and their Real Estate Agent unavailable, John had his first experience with real estate when he was called upon to “show” his family’s home at the age of 16. The home was sold due to his open house event, and a passion for real estate and development was born.
John is a dedicated listener and believes that anything is possible if you just observe and pay attention. His philosophy of; “anyone can know – the point is to understand”, drives him to deliver beyond expectations.
For many years John worked as a network engineer with AT&T. Timing and managing critical dates relating to network infrastructure build outs for billion-dollar companies along with Federal government agencies were an essential part of his daily work schedule. Fostering relationships and mastering problem-solving techniques has enabled John to deliver the quality and attention to detail that our Real Estate clients deserve.
An avid traveler, John enjoys spending time in Italy which he considers to be his other home. Wine is a deep-rooted passion and he is constantly seeking out knowledge and wisdom as he chases down some of his favorite Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from the boutique wineries that produce them. He hopes to have his own vineyard one day. Formula One Grand Prix Racing, photography, writing and spending time with his family round out his many interests.
