John Chandler New Home Specialist for Foxtail & Sales Manager

John has been practicing Real Estate full time since 2004 (11 years) most of that time in New Home Sales. During that time he has been a Top Producer, all eleven years, Platinum(top tier) Level in seven of those years. He is also in the top 5% in units sold of all practicing agents licensed during 2004 to present period. In 2014 John took a year off from active sales to grow the sales efforts at Boise Hunter Homes as the company’s Sales Manager and direct community responsibilities over 3 of the company’s seven communities.

John is a former Owner/Broker of Pinnacle Realty of Idaho, LLC, former Chairman of ACAR Communications Committee and in 2009, he was recognized by the Ada County Association of Realtors as the Association’s “Unsung Hero” for his original concept that directly lead to the Idaho Housing’s Federal Tax Credit Loan Program. The program allowed buyers to borrow against the federal government’s tax incentive program in order to use that money for down payment.  John says, “It didn’t make any sense to send a check to buyers after they purchased their home when they really needed that money upfront to even have the opportunity to buy in the first place.” John, along with Mark Lebowitz, the Executive Director of the Association at that time worked with Idaho Housing executives to create the program that was implemented and used by thousands of first time home buyers throughout Idaho.  The award recognizes the work done by agents in the association that work behind the scenes to improve the industry and opportunities for buyers and sellers.  John believes that helping others achieve their goals is the core to his success and the success he has personally brought to the companies he has worked for and the clients he has represented.  His “if I’m awake, I’m working” approach to his profession has helped as well.

When he is not working, John spends every minute possible with his best friend, biggest supporter, and wife Vikie at their home in Eagle.
