Offering a turnkey approach to business, John Lyons is a one-stop shop for a smooth and stress-free transaction. Lyons is a team leader and broker associate at Baird & Warner.

“When you hire me as your agent, you are hiring my entire team,” says Lyons. “We have high standards and work together to deliver an unmatched level of service for our clients,” he insists.
Turning to real estate eight years ago after an 11-year career in corporate sales, Lyons learned under the tutelage of Dirk Zeller and Tom Ferry. He quickly adapted to his new life of showing properties, keeping abreast of market developments and listening to economics housing forecasts.
“I built my business from online inquiries and Zillow leads,” he explains. “Now, more than 60% of my business comes from past clients and referrals who trust me and recognize that I am a skilled Realtor.”
In 2020, Lyons beat his 2019 sales record, increasing his business by 50% and breaking $20 million in sales. “Living through the pandemic has been a humbling experience,” he says. “I dealt with the fear of the pandemic by focusing on training myself, mentoring my teammates and doubling down on my marketing.”
This year, Lyons made changes in his personal life, too, taking on a consistent workout routine and opting for a healthier diet.
