John has been in banking since 2018, starting his banking career as an agricultural lender in the Farm Credit System. Prior to this, John was a real estate agent specializing in recreational land, agricultural land and commercial property. He enjoyed making the jump from real estate to banking, where he went from helping people find their dream property, to partnering alongside them and helping to actually make that dream a reality. In what feels like a lifetime ago, John was drafted out of high school to play professional baseball with the Tampa Bay Rays. After his 7-year baseball career, he earned his B.S. from Auburn University (War Eagle!). John enjoys spending time with his wife Sara, their children Keeton and Ellie, and whatever local beach has the best surfing break on any given morning.  “I look forward to teaming up with our customers, to help them fulfill their business goals while helping to build a stronger St. Augustine.”
