As an integral part of one of the top land and industrial brokerage teams in the Greater Houston area, John was exposed to and played a significant role in some of the major transactions that occurred over the last several years in the marketplace. Viewed by his peers and various industry leaders as having the grit, character and discipline needed to excel in the business, he quickly rose as a leader within the team and office at Lee & Associates, being promoted to Director after only a few years with the firm. That work ethic, coupled with the required education and deal experience led John to earn his Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) designation at the age of 26. In 2019, along with Partners Reed Vestal and Taylor Schmidt, their team was awarded the prestigious NAIOP “Industrial Deal of the Year” Award for their work on the 132-acre Weiser Airpark transaction, now better known as Weiser Business Park. The Weiser Airpark deal was also awarded REDNews’ “Most Significant Sale Transaction” finalist honors the same year. In 2019, John was recognized by NAIOP as a finalist for the “Industrial Rising Star” award. In both 2019 and 2021, John has earned a spot on the Houston Business Journal’s (HBJ) Heavy Hitters list as a top Land Broker in the Greater Houston area.
