Originally from Co. Louth, John left Ireland for the Middle East in 2009 to work in residential real estate in Dubai & Abu Dhabi. After 12 months, John established and grew a small startup brokerage to 122 agents which he exited from in 2015 when his company was acquired by Sotheby's regional real estate division.
Today, John runs a small startup company, ProprHome here in Portugal. It's a content-rich meritocratic property marketplace focused on delivering higher efficiency to the process of buying, selling, or renting any property in Portugal. Currently, they are at the prototyping stage but hope to deliver a working solution to the market by Q1 2021.
