John T. Rockey, Associate Broker at EXIT Realty 1st in Jackson, Michigan has achieved Top Agent status through a combination of hard work, honesty and a true concern for all of his many buyers and sellers. Affable, engaging and a true people person, John is often referred to as the Unofficial Mayor of Jackson, a sobriquet he finds both amusing and complimentary.

John began his sojourn in the real estate world sixteen years ago when he was invited by a fellow member of his local chapter of Business Network International to enter the profession. Obtaining his license in 2003, he jumped in feet first and hasn’t looked back since. Quickly establishing himself as a Realtor who can be consistently trusted to place his client’s needs front and center during every transaction, John has built a solidly successful business that continues to grow exponentially, year after year.

Serving primarily South Central Michigan, John’s consummately professional approach has resulted in a business that is based almost entirely on repeat clients and referrals from satisfied customers. “It’s because I’m honest,” he says, by way of explaining this impressive level of client loyalty. “Also, my clients don’t sense any arrogance from me, and they can tell that I’m listening to them. I work very hard to get their deals done. Many of my clients tell me that they wouldn’t trust anyone else.”

The appreciation John feels for his clients is clearly reciprocated, as is made evident by this glowing review on “John was great. We received more money than we expected from the sale of our home. He had quick responses to my emails and kept me informed through out the whole process. I would recommend John to anyone who is looking for an honest, trustworthy and hardworking Realtor. I will definitely work with him again in the future. Keep up the great work John

John’s comprehensive, intelligent and broad-spectrum approach to marketing has ensured that his listings are seen by as many potential buyers as possible, and is just another factor in his continued success in the industry. Utilizing a robust web presence, staging, and professional photography for every listing are among the many tools he employs to great effect. “My listings are on the internet on at least a hundred sites,” says John.

While the financial rewards of his chosen profession are not inconsiderable, it’s the more personal side of the transaction that provides John with the most satisfaction. “I love helping people achieve their dreams,” he explains. “I like that my clients have trust in me, and that they know that if they need something all they have to do is send me a text or give me a call.”

John is very much involved in the Jackson community. Heavily involved with his church, he is a board member for their Marriage Matters organization that has the goal of preparing, promoting and preserving healthy relationships. He also continues his twenty-three-year membership in the Business Network International organization.

When he’s not working, John enjoys spending time with his family. He is also an avid pilot, who has owned five airplanes during his lifetime, and will be building a new one from a kit that he hopes to begin flying in 2019. Basketball, woodworking and doing projects around his home account for the balance of his free-time activities.

As for the future, John’s immediate goal is to hire an administrative assistant to help free up some of his time for building his plane and possibly spending time with his daughter and son-in-law, who are linguists in Ethiopia, as well as providing the ability to assist even more clients. “There are so many people to serve and take care of,” he explains. “It’s a blessing. God has been good to me. Without Him, I’m nothing.”
