John has spent his entire professional career in marketing, executive recruiting and business-building. In 2001, he and his wife Lydia moved to Provence and renovated their first property in the region. After seven years they returned to the US, renting out their restored farmhouse to visitors. This quickly became the seed of what would later become Only Provence — one of the first and now leading agencies specializing in luxury villa rental in Provence.
After ten years of leading Only Provence from New York and Los Angeles, John returned to France to expand his life-long love for historic properties through Provence Life — a luxury real estate agency based in Bonnieux. John loves music, travel, social entrepreneurial activities and spending time with family and friends.
