John Colelli

John was drawn to the world of real estate recruiting by his desire to make a positive impact on the lives of others – a desire that ultimately brought him to RETS in 2018, where he serves as a director. Prior to joining RETS, John served as an executive recruiter for a regional executive search firm where he focused on the home building industry; previously he held production roles for mortgage firms.

Focus: Positions from mid- and senior-level management to division presidents covering home building, residential real estate sales, title and escrow, construction and real estate development

John lives by the motto “You can make a wish or you can make it happen,” which he looks to regularly in his professional endeavors. The motto also translates on a personal level, as it inspires John to maintain a very active lifestyle, as he can often be found mountain biking or spending time at the beach. If he wasn’t working in CRE recruiting, John would pursue a life of travel, with New Zealand the start of his adventures. Along the way, he’d be snacking on dark chocolate – a guilty pleasure that he could never deny.
