John Hilyard
Vice President and Buyer Specialist

John has been a resident of the Maumee and surrounding areas for his entire life. He has always had an interest in the real estate/housing business. As a child he went to a local vocational school, studied carpentry, and was hoping to get into the building trades.  However, the economy didn’t cooperate so he never entered the field. Instead he took the signs and went onto college to obtain a Bachelors of Business degree with a major in Accounting from the University of Toledo.  He has been a full time agent since the inception of the team in 2007. He has been a licensed agent since 1999 where he worked part time as an agent and full time as an accountant for some local companies such as Hickory Farms, Inc., Gladieux Enterprises, and Cardinal Services. During this stretch he spent 4 years in Public Accounting as an auditor which led him to realize he thoroughly enjoyed working with people and there was more to work than sitting behind a computer crunching numbers. Once John’s two children, Brittany & Zachary, were out of school he decided to make the transition from Accountant to Real Estate agent and hasn’t looked back since. He uses his experience & knowledge as a former resident of Swanton, Toledo & currently of Maumee to assist him with advising buyers of the local areas. In addition he has gained life experiences with other localities during his son’s years playing travel soccer for the local Sylvania Pacesetter Soccer Club. Travel soccer allowed him to travel throughout all the local area as well as areas outside of Northwest Ohio and into Cleveland, Kentucky & Wisconsin.  John, has many fond memories of traveling sports, understands the importance of organized sports but also the importance of education, as that was stressed as much or more than the game itself.  During these years John also learned the importance of eating healthy, proper exercise and staying in shape as the lifestyle the soccer players had to live by, so he carries that with him today, He works out on a regular basis at the local LA Fitness facility, enjoys hiking or walks around the Maumee River or throughout the park system, cycling, golfing, kayaking or basically any outdoor activity that allows him to be active and enjoy the sunshine.   He’s hoping this lifestyle, enjoyment he receives from helping others, and his love for his work is conveyed to those he works with as he truly is blessed to have this second career.

“John was absolutely fantastic. He got us into every house we wanted to see and quickly too! He worked with our crazy schedule and when we found the house we wanted, he drew up our offer as quickly as he could. John was great and helped guide my boyfriend and I through our first home purchase.” ~ Zillow Review
