John Van Hall

I teach real estate classes for adult education in numerous cities. I work well with everyone, but I especially love working with investors and first time home buyers.

I specialize in VA and first time home buyer programs, including down payment assistance.

I love working with people who have had credit difficulties and helping them accomplish their goal of owning a house.

I have worked on training and development for many different kinds of real estate professionals in my career, however, my passion will always be my clients.

Real estate should be fun and educational! When I’m not working with clients or teaching, I love professional photography and videography, and I love hanging out with my awesome son.
