|| Meet The John Burgess Real Estate Group
My name is John Burgess and I was born and raised in Silver Spring, Maryland, in Montgomery County. Since the third grade, I have been involved with serving and helping others through a variety of customer service-based businesses, such as paper routes, landscaping, owning and operating a local neighborhood pub, and now as a REALTOR®.
As both an individual agent and as a Broker with over 25+ agents, I relish the opportunity to assist people with one of the most important decisions and largest transaction of their lives - the buying and selling of real estate.
My personal life has always been intertwined with sports and athletics, and I'm very interested in the physical health of myself and others. I enjoy team activities, coaching sports and most importantly, spending quality time with my family. I am involved with Children’s Hospital / Children’s Miracle Network and organize our brokerage's signature fundraising events for these charities annually. In my spare time, I like to travel and cook out on the grill.
