Meet John


In the pursuit of living the American Dream, one of the best ways families can generate financial security is through real estate investment. And no agent understands the power of real estate investing better than real estate broker John Swartz. Primarily serving Los Angeles and the surrounding area, John has over 20 years of experience working with buyers and investors of multifamily income properties, helping his clients build long-term, multi-generational wealth. 

Born and raised in Detroit, John has lived in the Los Angeles area for 18 years. He began his real estate career in 1998 when he interned for Taubman Company in Bloomfield Hills, MI, and worked for some of the nation's leading multifamily, retail, and mixed-use developers including Lagovent Real Estate Group, Watt Companies, and the Westfield Corporation. In 2010, he became a California licensed broker and earned many industry awards and recognitions. He was the West Region Producer of the Year at Transwestern in 2018 and 2019 and earned the West Region Deal of the Year at Transwestern from 2017 to 2019. In addition to his extensive background as a real estate agent, he received a Bachelor of Arts from Michigan State University and a Master of Science in Finance from Walsh College. 

As a top-notch real estate broker, John has acquired and disposed of over $1 billion dollars of real estate over the course of his career. Primarily working with buyers, sellers, and investors of multifamily properties, he understands what his clients are looking for when it comes to investment properties. With his extensive industry knowledge and rich real estate background, John knows how to structure these distinctive transactions, providing his clients with top-quality results compared to the competition. Ethical, hard-working, and dedicated, he goes the extra mile to represent his clients’ best interests. John specializes in working with both Private and Institutional clients, from families that own one or two apartment buildings to family offices and institutions that own multiple apartment buildings. 

In addition to his thriving real estate business, John likes to stay incredibly active. He currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Medria, and when he isn’t conducting real estate transactions, you can find John cycling in the Santa Monica Mountains, exploring museums, and traveling. His passions include architecture, design, and community advocacy.
