John Weber, Associate Broker, Realtor
Hello, my name is John M. Weber and I have been a licensed real estate broker for over 35 years. I am an Associate Broker (Licensed Real Estate Broker) in the Hilton Head & Bluffton area of South Carolina where I sell luxury properties with Charter One Realty.
I am from Chagrin Falls Ohio originally and I guess you could say a lifelong Cleveland sports fan. The bulk of my experience has been managing sales and marketing operations for developers of luxury master-planned communities. In a few words - I sell and market real estate. I have had a great career working and living in some of this countries more beautiful areas. I started in Williamsburg, Virginia then moved to Hilton Head, South Carolina. There I managed the sales team in Hilton Head Plantation for a few years. We then moved to Chapel Hill, North Carolina where I was in charge of marketing and sales for Governor's Club. From there we lived in several towns in Florida: Vero Beach, Miami, Naples and Tampa. These communities had outstanding real estate, great second homes, and resort communities.
The work was great, and the golf was even better! Golf is a perk of my job and I love it! I was lucky because I learned from the very best professionals who went on to become very successful. Our sales teams sold a combined volume of over one billion in sales. In those 30 years, I managed some of the country’s finest luxury communities like Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club, Windsor, The Ford Plantation, Hilton Head Plantation, and Governor’s Club to name a few. One of my last jobs was working for a developer who built and managed Ritz Carlton’s in the Caribbean. Boy, that was a great job!
