John Skinner - Listing Agent


When sellers trust John Skinner with their real estate needs, they are rewarded with his dedication, attentiveness, and efficiency in getting the job done right. John navigates every client through the real estate process with confidence and ease. Key to his effectiveness besides his market knowledge and negotiating savvy is his ability to forge strong relationships with clients that last over time.

“I enjoy getting to know my clients and working with them through the transaction process. It is especially rewarding to find that perfect property match; one that suits their financial constraints and enables them to appreciate this area of the country.”

Eager to excel at what he does, John continually challenges himself and finds solutions for any given situation, simple or complex. Prior to entering the world of real estate, John spent 6 years in Atlanta and Houston selling technology solutions to some of the largest corporations in the world. This experience, in conjunction with his unique drive, passion, and dedication to the practice of real estate has helped him develop impressive negotiation and interpersonal skills. “I have found my Real Estate clients to be of a similar mind-set to business owners and executives. Investing in real estate involves both emotional and financial considerations.”

John understands that hard-work and creative adaptability produce results in real estate as and that is what he offers his clients and customers—results. John prides himself on his communication skills and strives to bring his clients and customers only the highest level of service. His youthful energy and constant availability make him a pleasure to work with and are at the root of his strong and rapidly expanding referral network.

“As your Realtor, I make myself available seven days a week, 52 weeks a year. Together, we will find the right buyer or the property of your dreams. I constantly track the market in order to offer the best service possible to property owners and potential buyers. I closely follow what has sold and what is available on the market. Tracking both trends from analytical and personal perspectives helps me bring the every changing market into focus. For sellers, I strive to recommend the most advantageous property selection and negotiation strategy based upon relative value, uniqueness and historical data. I strive to help buyers find what is comfortable to them and satisfies their perception of value.”

Although John enjoys his business and the people he meets, he also finds it important to have interests outside of real estate. “I can honestly say that there is no more beautiful landscape or quality people than you will find on the Emerald Coast.” In his free time, he partakes of all the wonderful opportunities the Emerald Coast has to offer. He particularly enjoys fishing and training for marathons. One of his greatest pleasures is cooking fresh seafood with friends and sitting down to a fine dinner together.
