John Padgett’s real estate story
Originally from South Carolina, John Padgett first got into real estate there, back in the year 2000. While he was in medical school, his mom talked him into getting his real estate license. After selling real estate there, his friend convinced him to check out real estate in Mexico, starting with Mazatlan. But quickly, he discovered Cabo, and flew there to take a look.
Right after arriving in Cabo back in 2002, he quickly got a job selling condos at a Cabo resort and rented an apartment there. He returned home, put his stuff in storage, and came back to Cabo to start his new real estate career selling “destination” real estate. He considered this type of work to be ideal, as he mentions during his interview with Nick Fong.
After about seven years selling resort condos in Cabo, he moved on to selling fractional real estate in golf communities. As he states in the video, that’s where he came from In South Carolina, he sold golf community real estate there, and loved that aspect of it. Now he’s been able to get back to that…his roots in real estate.
