John’s business career began in his home town of Forest City, NC, located between Asheville and Charlotte, at his mentor’s real estate company, Carolina Mountain Real Estate, where they did everything from developing, brokerage, fixing up and flipping, to property management. In 1999, John founded The McEntyre Group, moved to Charlotte and quickly became a successful real estate agent. To better serve his clients, he completed the financial counselors program to help them better understand the financial implications of buying and selling their homes and properties. He is a member of the local, regional and national real estate associations, and the Association for Financial Counseling and Planning Education®. In 2007, John was inducted into the Business Who’s Who.
John found his way onto television almost by accident. While having lunch with one of his fellow real estate agents with a background in TV production, he was asked to co-host a real estate program produced at the local cable access TV station. The show, titled My Favorite Realtors®!, was an instant hit! The show aired in some of the top markets across America, and was nominated for the H.O.P.E. (Home Ownership Participation for Everyone) Award in the media and public education categories.
