John McGowan

My background as a stock broker and business owner, matched with a native-born knowledge of Santa Barbara puts me in a position to help people find and negotiate – fairly and honestly – a home to call their own in a place like no other, an place that I have grown up in and loved.

After years of ongoing education, experience, and success in the industry, I have come to understand that just because a transaction is completed, it’s not just good-bye and good luck.

My tour of duty in the Marine Corps instilled in me the importance of honor and integrity. It shaped my personal code as a professional, which is that every client is an individual who deserves utmost respect and attention not just for the short-term deal, but also for the long-term association.

My cumulative experience as a community activist for many charitable organizations, as a past member of the Professional Standards Committee of Santa Barbara Realtors, and as an involved parent of three adults, has reinforced the notion that this business is helping people successfully navigate the increasingly complicated process of buying and selling property.

I am currently a member of NRT’s Top 1000 Sales Associates for the second quarter of 2016. NRT is the nation’s largest residential real estate brokerage company which comprises approximately 47,000 members.

If you asked me today, over three decades later, if – all things being equal – If I would have picked the same career path, the answer is an unqualified “Yes!”

I love what I do and I hope it shows as well as the properties I represent.
