John Thurman, the founder of Byron Village Realty, has been serving satisfied real estate customers for 37 years.
He began working for a small independent realty company in London where he learned the power of the personal touch and "being local". After acquiring his broker's licence in 1984, John incorporated Byron Village Realty, for his home neighbourhood, as the first value broker in the city.
As John will tell you, the key to Byron Village Realty's success is that people want savings in their real estate transactions, and a value broker can deliver them. Business has grown for Byron Village Realty to the extent where the company now serves all of London and it's surrounding areas, plus St Thomas and Strathroy.
In a world full of superstores, John Thurman is still your friendly, local realtor.
