Business Philosophy 
My philosophy is simple:To be your honest and loyal advocate. So that when we have closed your transaction, you are comfortable enough with me that you trust your name to me amongst your family and friends.

Personal Background

First and foremost, I am the adoring husband of my beautiful bride, Tracy, and the loving father of our son, Trey.  They are truly the light of my life, and my life would be quite empty without them.

For the first few years of Trey's life, I have had the privilege of working from home part-time, and being a stay-at-home father full-time. A better gift, I have never been given. If you are a parent, I am sure you know how important and fleeting those first years really are. If you are thinking about being a parent, you have so many things to look forward to. If I do my job right, I will get to hear about it from you as you walk the road of parenthood.

Now that Trey has grown up a bit and is in school full-time, I too have gone back to working in this industry full-time. I do miss the time with Trey, but my clients continue to keep me as busy, if not more so, than Trey did.

I am a product of growing up in the South, in that my voice can be twangy at times, especially if I am belting out a Miranda Lambert diddy (with the volume cranked and the car windows rolled up of course). I promise not to put you through that torture. I embrace the one piece of the Old South that often gets lost in rhetoric, and that is that our relationships are the most important part of who and what we are. I truly believe that we are defined by the quality of people in our lives. For my part, I have to continually focus on being better today than I was yesterday, in order to be worthy of the people who choose to share their lives with me.

Community Involvement
I actively support the following charitable organizations:

 Adventure Amputee Camp

Atlanta Union Mission
Atlanta Triangle Club
Metro Atlanta Recovery Residences

Communities I Serve
I proudly serve the Metro Atlanta area. If your needs fall into an area where I feel that my service would be below my standards, I will happily refer you to someone that I trust with my name to make sure that your needs are met. If this occurs, you can expect me to follow-up with you and the new agent before and after the transaction to make sure you are happy with the process.

Bought a home in 2013.

John McKernan is THE professional among professionals.

I started my home buying journey with another agent. The less than acceptable experience I had with them set my expectations very low. That being said, John blew my previous experience out of the water. He was always on time, straight forward, honest, and very pleasant to work with. I never felt pressured to do anything I didn't want to do. The reports he generated on each of the houses that I was interested in were amazing. These reports were so much more than just the basic info that was already in the listing. His attention to detail helped highlight all the pros and con of each property. I always felt like John had my best interest in mind. Despite knowing he had other clients, when he was working with me, I felt as if I was his only client. I thoroughly trusted John b/c he never pushed me to do anything that I didn't want to do; he wasn't trying to sell me on anything. He genuinely wanted me to buy the house that was right for me. The quality of service I experienced while working with John has set the bar, for everyone else, very high. Should I ever be forced to work with someone else, they will have a difficult time impressing me curtsey of Mr John McKernan. I will recommend him to my family, my friends, and to anyone who asks. I could not have asked for a better agent.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $450K in Margaret Mitchell, Atlanta, GA.

I am so thankful to have had John McKernan's help, expertise, patience, and guidance throughout our house-hunting / buying experience. John really listened to our needs and wants, and was able to find the perfect home for us! It was a pleasure doing business with John, and I would highly recommend working with both him and Coldwell Banker!  More Less

Thanks Rebecca. This one turned out to be quite the challenge at times, but in the end patience and holding firm to agreed upon expectations ruled the day. Really happy for things to come as you guys start your family!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Alpharetta, GA.

I am relocating from Canada to Alpharetta and have been working with John for I would say 8 months (maybe a bit more). We initially spent some time looking around at different houses in different neighbourhoods which really helped me to understand the areas and make an informed decision on where i wanted to focus. A find traffic highly stressful and had the time to search areas around my employeers area to find the optimum place. John was more than accomodating in this entire process and certainly when I was in town he prioritiezed his time to allow these reviews. John certainly knows the area well, has excellent contacts and learns what you are looking for. As a relocation client John also helped to facilitate financing and suggested alternative to build a credit file from the Canadian agencies which really helped. I have no problem recommending John for any of your realestate needs. I know I will be seeing him again in the future when it comes times to move on.  More Less
