John and his wife, Dawn, reside in Scottsdale. They have two daughters and four grandchildren. John has been involved in real estate all of his life. His father's investment properties provided him with a hands-on approach to repair, renovation, investing and communication.

Back in Minnesota John and his wife began investing in single family homes and duplexes. They built their first Dream home in Inver Grove Heights and built a few more since. "Dawn and I attempt to move every two years due to the benefits of the tax law enacted in 1997. The tax law allows married folks to avoid paying taxes on gains from the sale of their residence up to $500,000 and $250,000 for single persons. All you have to do to qualify is live there for two out of the last five years."

Due to the changes in the economy and the devaluation of real estate, this again creates a new opportunity to buy low and generate a non-taxable gain when you sell your home.

Due to John's extensive experience in real estate, he will be able to easily guide you through the investment process. And, at the same time help you find a great home value in a great location of your choosing.
