John Cooper, BBA, PREC, is a Realtor with Re/Max of Nanaimo Downtown and is the Team Leader of the John Cooper Group in Nanaimo. John has entrepreneurship in his blood and has always had an aptitude for business. A natural leader, John leveraged his Honours BBA in Marketing to work in the field of international marketing and branding, as well as running his own businesses. In 2008, just prior to one of the worst real estate markets in recent history, John launched his real estate sales and marketing business and quickly defied the odds, establishing himself as the #1 top producing agent within 24 months.
At the pub night John will be discussing the residential sales trends in the last 90 days, recent project sales success, upcoming projects, current challenges in the market place – mortgages, new agency rules and how many purchases you see from foreign investment. Are they driving the real estate market or what is?
