Our People

John Cole

In 2009, I made the decision to leave my established career at Cole Chrysler Dodge. It was a very difficult decision at the time, but I knew that I needed to seek out a path toward something that was a better fit for me. My experience in sales, management, and accounting eventually led me to obtain my California Real Estate Sales license, when I promptly joined the local brokerage of Allan Real Estate Investments. Over the past several years, I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to participate in a wide array of real estate transactions. 

My family heritage dates back generations to the late 1800’s here on the Central Coast and we love where we live. We are excited to help you make your real estate transactions easy. We look forward to helping you love buying and selling real estate here on the Central Coast too.
