Congratulations to John LePage! He is celebrating his 11-year anniversary with Zephyr Real Estate this winter and is based in our Noe Valley office.

Before entering the real estate industry, John spent 7 years in the corporate world at a Big 4 accounting firm as a licensed CPA where he learned to work in a fast-paced business environment with a client service focus and an “exceed expectations” attitude. As a realtor, he has been able to bring that strong work ethic and client satisfaction focus to his work. His accounting background and honed negotiation skills have also fueled his motivation in helping each one of his clients navigate the very fast-paced and competitive Bay Area real estate market.

John has been a Top Producer for Zephyr the past four years and is a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist. He is also an active member of San Francisco’s Top Agent Network, a private online business community limited to the top 10% of San Francisco realtors. John adores San Francisco as his home and is unceasingly committed to improving the community through his personal and professional life.

We got to know John a little better when catching up with him about his Zephyr anniversary.

What neighborhood/city do you live in & why? How long have you lived there and what do you love best about it?

“I technically live in SOMA but it’s been nicknamed The Hub. It got its name because of the intersection of multiple transportation lines close to the intersections of Market with Valencia, Haight, Gough and Van Ness. I’ve lived there almost three years now. I love it because it’s one of the fastest developing neighborhoods in the city – it’s very exciting to be somewhere that is so up and coming. It’s walkability to the Valencia Corridor, Hayes Valley and accessibility to transportation make its location incredibly convenient.”

What do you love to do in your spare time? Do you have a favorite place to hang out in the Bay Area?

“I was a professional DJ for 20 years but I just recently retired. Although I’m not a part of the club scene like I used to be I still have a strong interest in dance music. Quality time with my husband and friends at our homes has definitely replaced much of the late-night clubbing.”

What neighborhood have you seen change most in the Bay Area?

“Hands down it has to be Bernal Heights. When I first started in real estate Bernal always seemed more like an after-thought. Someplace you could consider if you were priced out of other neighborhoods. Now Bernal is a destination and property values have skyrocketed.”
