Although I’ve only known John for a few months now, he’s become a good friend and an outstanding salesman.
John has always been in the construction industry. He was an account and CPA for some large construction firms for 30+ years. John grew up in Iowa and lived in Texas for 25 years and he’s been in Tulsa, Oklahoma since 2007. He and his wife moved so they could be closer to their two daughters and eight grandchildren.
I met John while inspecting his roof after spotting a few loose shingles. We got to talking and he brought up that he had recently started in real estate investing. I offered him the job on the spot.
John’s only been with us since November but he started strong and is still going!
I asked him what he’s learned since working with me as a roofing salesman.
John said: “Now, I get to meet a lot of people, my attitude has gotten better, I see people as an opportunity and I get to make a great living doing it.”
He also told me: “I love getting to be my own boss and make my own schedule.”
In John’s free time you’ll find him spending time with his family (but mostly his 8 grandchildren), voraciously studying and reading his Bible (Which he’s read cover to cover 3 times now) or swimming laps in his pool.
John’s faith and family are what motivate him along with a deep desire to others.
John’s confidence and desire to help others grown tremendously since he started selling roofs with me. He’s always looking for ways to talk to anyone he can and to meet and help as many people as he can.
John doesn’t stop, he doesn’t give up and I’m glad to have him on my team!
