John T. Barragan’s loyalty, integrity, and dedication have helped him to cultivate a well-respected reputation in his community, and he’s become known throughout Sonoma County for his trustworthy counseling and genuine devotion to others. His vast network of friends, neighbors, partners, and clients is a pure testament to what successful and lasting relationships are built upon, and the opportunity to build more of these is a driving force in John’s life and career.
But John didn’t start out in the real estate industry, even though he earned his license at just 21. His natural sales and negotiation abilities first led him to a role representing 113 accounts throughout San Francisco’s North Bay for Miller’s Dairy and Clover Farms, where his knowledge of the region and his community deepened. In 2002, John began some personal investment projects and spent the next 15 years managing and remodeling 12 condo units, which he turned into beautiful homes. During that time, John also obtained his appraiser license, adding even more value to his already dynamic skill set. This experience, along with his extensive market knowledge and fluency in Spanish, has enabled John to build a thriving career while doing what he loves: helping people achieve their real estate goals.
No matter the need, John’s keen eye for detail, consistent and thoughtful communication, and bold negotiation skills create an exceptional buying or selling experience for his clients. Sellers appreciate the attention and preparation John gives each listing. From gorgeous staging to comprehensive presale inspections, his brilliant marketing strategies harness the power of social media and create a strong online presence that maximizes each property’s exposure. Buyers looking for their perfect home benefit from John’s extensive resources and immense knowledge of the diverse and beautiful communities of Petaluma, Santa Rosa, and beyond.
A lifelong local, John’s affection for the unique diversity and culture of the North Bay continues to grow. In his free time, he never misses the chance to take a long hike or bike ride, create an oil painting, or explore Sonoma County’s breathtaking landscapes with his husband, Scott.
