About John Pinckney
TELL ME ABOUT YOUR JOURNEY TO REAL ESTATE.
I chose real estate after several successful years in teaching in the Catholic School system. The career change was eminent when class sizes dropped immensely due to the downturn in the economy in 2009. Initially I was going to transition straight into real estate, when unfortunately, my parent’s health started failing. I then decided to take this time and focus on them. I took care of them for 2 years before they passed away. Shortly after I decided it was time to put my real estate license to work. The path was obvious, for several years I periodically worked with my wife who at the time had her own real estate and mortgage brokerage company. I felt that real estate was the only other way of giving back to the community other than teaching. I prayed and took the leap of faith into the field of real estate.
WHAT MOST EXCITES YOU ABOUT YOUR WORK?

WHERE CAN WE FIND YOU WHEN YOU'RE NOT WORKING?

WHAT BAY AREA CITY WOULD YOU LIKE TO LIVE IN AND WHY?
I would like to live in the city I currently live in, Hercules. I like Hercules because of its diverse population, nice quiet community and within close proximity to most major Bay Area cities. It is especially convenient to the few airports that I choose to fly out of.

December is my favorite month of the year. I like December because we celebrate the Christmas holiday during this month with all the lights, family gatherings and holiday cheer.

John was very considerate, patient, knowledgeable, and gave me personalized attention. John went out of his way to meet my special needs and that was appreciated. He worked tirelessly for me and I suspect he would do the same for all of his clients. Another appreciated character was his willingnessto be patient with me.
