John M. Stofer is a native Houstonian that grew up in the Spring Branch / Memorial area, only leaving for four years to attend the University of Texas at Austin. After graduation in 2000 with a degree in Finance, he promptly returned home to begin his career. He worked as a financial analyst for Continental Airlines, in sales for Lexus, and most recently, managing both his personal and family real estate holdings of more than 200,000 square feet of both commercial and residential properties, since 2006. With his broad real estate and sales background, John has been part of multiple million-dollar decisions on investments, sales, leases and acquisitions. He has a deep understanding of the real estate industry and how to invest in it wisely, and has learned the key to all successful sales is building lasting relationships.
John has deep roots in Houston Heights, Oak Forest, Garden Oaks, Spring Branch and Memorial. Although he grew up in the Spring Branch / Memorial area, John has lived in the Heights since 2004, when he became the third owner of a home now located in the East Norhill Historic District. Having responsibly restored this 1920’s original bungalow to its original charm with modern conveniences, John has extensive experience in historical home renovation and improvement. His roots run deep in the Heights: his father is a 1960 graduate of Reagan High School (now Heights High School) and he grew up eating dinner at his grandparents’ home in Oak Forest every week. In 2013, John and his wife, Candace, purchased another home in the newly emerging Brooke Smith area of the Heights.
John also has a deep understanding of the ever-evolving Spring Branch area, where he made his first real estate investment in 1998 – a commercial office building he still owns today. He has been involved with the Spring Branch Management District for over 10 years serving on the Public Safety, Landscape & Urban Design, and Economic Development Committees.
In his spare time, John enjoys traveling with his wife, spending time with their two dogs, experiencing the vast array of cuisine throughout the city with family and friends, and recharging at their family’s ranch west of town.
John is passionate about helping others achieve their real estate and financial goals – whether buying or selling a home to educating others about non-conventional investment opportunities in real estate, he is ready to assist you.
