John previously owned several businesses prior to moving from Pennsylvania to SW Florida in 2003. John had a lifelong interest in real estate as an investor and looked forward to his Florida move to dedicate his efforts to this endeavor. Through the boom times and the lean times John has learned all facets of the business. He achieved his broker’s license in 2007 and opened Gateway Real Estate in 2008. Gateway Real Estate began with this mission statement; “We will treat our customers with warm, friendly customer service. Our success will not depend on a brilliant elaborate marketing scheme, but rather from treating people the right way and earning their trust. That we would not have to ask our customers for referrals and future business, for they will want to tell their friends about us. I find that spending much of my time looking for my next customer distracts me from taking care of my present customers. Our trusted customer service will be our marketing plan.” Through hard work and this unrivaled customer service we have earned the trust of many. We are always available to answer your real estate questions.
