JOHN
FILLMAN

Founder / Team Lead

John Fillman prides himself on being a relational realtor, not a transactional one. He believes in building a relationship with his clients and understanding their unique needs so he can adapt appropriately and help in the best way possible. As a former collegiate athlete, he brings a competitive spirit to every part of his real estate business- whether it be a client purchasing their first home, an investment property or building their dream home. This also becomes a useful tool in the negotiation process.  John, born and raised in Alaska, moved to the desert in 2012; through that out of state move, he was able to understand how important it is to have a realtor that is trusted and that supports his clients effectively. All of the above have paid off as John was rated “Best of Zillow” and became a multi-million-dollar producer in his first year as an agent.

He has an authentic passion for real estate and finds satisfaction in being a part of something so monumental for his clients. John is currently working towards building a team of like-minded agents to provide excellent service and dominate the industry here in the Valley.

John traded in the bitter cold Alaskan terrain for 3 months of intense, dry heat. He considers that to be a reasonable exchange as now he gets 9 months of sunny, beautiful weather here in Arizona. This type of weather facilitates a wide variety of outdoor activities he likes to do with his family.  John is happily married and has two wonderful kids who keep him busy with their sports. One of his biggest, all important goals is continuing to raise respectful, intelligent, caring children who can impact their communities in a positive way! John hopes he can build a business strong enough to maybe one day pass along to his kids.

She now has a beautiful, intelligent daughter whom she stayed home to care for.

Después de casarse con su esposo en la tierra natal de sus padres, Susana volvió con sus mentores de la escuela secundaria para ayudar a la nueva generación que ingresa al mundo de los adultos. Ahora tiene una hija hermosa e inteligente a quien se quedó en casa para cuidar.

 

Susana volvió a trabajar después de 3 años para ayudar a la comunidad de adultos mayores. Trabajó en la banca, ¡y ahí fue donde encontró su vocación por ser agente de bienes raices!
