As a Tacoma native, REALTOR® John Douville absolutely loves his hometown, and wants to help you join his family of neighbors in North Tacoma! He believes that it is the best place to live in Washington, and he is ready to show you exactly why!
Prior to becoming a REALTOR®, John worked in a number of fields and owned a few businesses, too. All of these experience have prepared him for real estate. John owned a nursery and landscape company for six years, a time during which he learned self-management and business planning. He worked for a contracting company building homes, and also interned at Boeing as an engineer. And during all of these endeavors, John worked in the restaurant business for 15 years and held every position from dishwasher to bar manager. Working in restaurants taught him the huge importance of verbal and nonverbal communication, and how to listen with more than just his ears!
Q: What can clients expect when working with you? How do you typically communicate with them?
A: I've found that honest communication and ardent listening keep all relationships healthy and prosperous. After that, I have fun. Emotions, misconceptions, and desires can run high on any given day in this business. It's important to keep it light and interesting. I also have an innate ability to find common grounds and conversation with almost anyone!
Q: Tell us more about the kind of real estate you specialize in! What neighborhoods do you work in?
A: I’ve always enjoyed touring neighborhoods and admiring homes while on walks or runs, and the Tacoma area has been a favorite place to do this. You can find me on any given day admiring small to large residences found in the beautiful greater North Tacoma area.
