About John Widenmann
DESCRIBE your journey to real estate.
I bought my first home in 2014 and I will never forget how excited I was the first time I opened the door to my new home. After I was settled in to my new home I still found myself exploring new neighborhoods, home styles, and interior design. I thought to myself how can I have this experience again? The natural path to reinventing that experience was to help guide others on their own real estate journey.
What most excites you about your work?
The thing that excites me most about my work is getting to know people on a more personal level. Learning someone's unique story helps me to see things through their lens so that I can understand what draws them to a certain city, neighborhood, and home.
What are three words your clients would use to describe you?
Trustworthy. Passionate. Personable.
Where can we find you when you're not working?
I turn to yoga to find balance in my life. You can most likely find me sweating it out at a hot studio or if the weather is right yoga in the park.
What do you love to do in your spare time?
I love food. So if I'm not grilling or cooking then I love to check out places that have been on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
What do you look for in a neighborhood?
Two things: people outside walking their dogs, and I love the charm and architecture of Craftsman and Tudor style homes.
What is the nicest thing anyone ever said to you?
Somebody told me that they hope their son grows up to be like me. I thought that was the ultimate compliment!
What magical power would you want to have?
Nerd moment here but if I wasn't in the field of real estate I would definitely be a wizard in the world of Harry Potter and be an Auror.
What is your biggest phobia?
I don't know that I would call it a phobia but my biggest fear is that one day I will be pulled over for speeding while racing home to use the restroom and end up on.
