About Me

I moved from the Panhandle of Florida after my first career in commercial banking. My wife of 40 years+ and I have two wonderful children and 3 grandchildren. We purchased an established business known as Twigs and Leaves Gallery, which is one of the largest and oldest art galleries in WNC. My wife manages the gallery, along with her wonderful staff.

I have been blessed to enjoy success in both real estate sales and in civic achievement. During the last four years at MainStreet Realty, I received the "Top Producer" award. In 2014, I was voted "2014 Realtor of the Year" by the Haywood County Board of Realtors. I am past President of the Downtown Waynesville Association, Haywood Board of Realtors, and Fund for Haywood County. I have served as President of two Chambers' of Commerce and two Rotary Clubs, I am currently on the Foundation Board of Haywood Community College and serve on the Finance Committee.

My wife and I enjoy hiking the mountains of WNC with our family and friends!

Testimonials

John was wonderful to work with from day one. As new home buyers, we were completely ignorant on how to go about this process and because of John’s patience, honesty, and guidance, we felt like we were working with family. John helped us understand every detail and made sure to explain things thoroughly so there was no confusion. We are so grateful to John for all of his help in helping us find our first home

John Kieth is an excellent communicator. He kept me well informed of the progress and the likes and dislikes of the property communicated to him by potential buyers. I met John about 3 years ago in his Waynesville office and explained to him what type of property I was looking for. He showed me several propertied of which met my expectations. I eventually purchased the 450 Zion Trace property. So when u decide to sell the property, I knew John was my choice for my realtor.

Is there a best time of the year to buy a house?

When it comes to buying a home, there are pros and cons for each season. Generally, the best season to buy a home is in late summer or fall. There are still plenty of homes for sale, but without the intense competition found during spring. Sellers are also known for being a bit more flexible this time of the year. Zillow reports that the highest number of listings with at least one price reduction are found August–September. However, the deeper buyers venture into fall, the less choice is available. If you value choice, and you want more buyers competing for the home you are leaving, spring could be your best season. Ultimately, the best time to buy a home is when you’re financially ready to do so.
