John Collopy, Founder and Owner of RE/MAX Results and the Results Foundation has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Business Owners for dedication, achievements, and leadership in real estate.
Mr. Collopy’s interest in real estate was borne out of difficult adolescence: as a teen, he struggled with substance use disorders that eventually landed him in the court system and jail. Once released, Mr. Collopy completed treatment and an Associate’s degree and got a job that he recalls “showed him the value of hard work.” The savings and life skills he had built up after jail enabled him to buy a home; an older fixer-upper that Mr. Collopy remodeled and sold.
His early experience flipping homes inspired Mr. Collopy’s desire to be able to handle all parts of the process from renovations to closing, and he established RE/MAX Results to realize his dream. Since its establishment, Mr. Collopy has remained the firm’s principal broker and agent, helping dozens of agents build their careers or transition into the industry, and has sold close to 25,000 homes over the course of his career. He attributes his success to loving the work and to living life one day at a time, and takes a hands-on approach to leadership, working directly with sales agents and department heads to develop company strategy.
In addition to his thriving real estate business, Mr. Collopy is a published author and successful public speaker. His first book, “The Reward of Knowing,” 2018, was a memoir of his addiction and recovery, and he is currently at work on a follow-up. He is also active in the Results Foundation, a RE/MAX-sponsored nonprofit offering housing assistance, scholarships, and other services to the community, and he looks forward to transitioning his focus from real estate to the Results Foundation in the coming years.
