He speaks regularly on the economy and real estate at Georgia State’s Economic Forecasting Center, MarketWatch Atlanta and the Raymond James Wealth Management conference. John is often interviewed by NPR’s A Closer Look, and he has been featured recently by WSB-TV, The Atlanta Journal Constitution, Atlanta Magazine, KNOWAtlanta, NAHB Now and Builder Online.
John worked with the team that predicted the housing downturn as early as September 2005, when letters went out to clients stating that a "Housing Downturn is Imminent!" When the NAHB projected 977,000 single-family starts nationally and 30,000 for Atlanta in 2016, John went against conventional thinking at the February quarterly conference and accurately predicted 780,000 and 23,000 starts respectively. John was part of Johnny Isakson’s “think tank” that worked to reform . .. . . His ground breaking MarketNsight Feasibility Matrix® gives clients the ability to analyze land deals and determine their feasibility.
John is a graduate of Samford University with a BA in Finance/Economics.
His firm MarketNsight currently operates in 14 markets across the Southeast, including Atlanta, Augusta, and Savannah, Georgia; Birmingham and Tuscaloosa, Alabama; Charlotte and Raleigh, North Carolina; Columbia and Greenville, South Carolina; and Chattanooga and Nashville, Tennessee.
