About John

John Pierce has a passion, like few others, for real estate. He has always been fascinated

by it; the tangible nature of it as an investment, the creative aspect of the aesthetics of a property and the potential that can be envisioned. Real estate and the projects that are born from it engage both the rational side of the brain and the artistic side as well.

He grew up in Maine where he was introduced to the hunting and fishing at a young age. He went to St. Mark’s School in Southborough, MA and then to Bucknell University where he earned a bachelor’s degree in 1986. After working in commercial real estate for several years in Boston, John moved to Jackson Hole, Wyoming where for the next 26 years he specialized in luxury residential ranch and resort real estate serving clients throughout the entire Rocky Mountain region. During that time, he was an Associate Broker at Sotheby’s, and an owner and partner with Hall & Hall Inc., involved in hundreds of millions of dollars in transactions ranging from under half a million to over 60 million.

Deciding to relocate to Florida upon becoming empty-nesters, John and his wife Laurel, scoured the state for three years before choosing Vero Beach in 2017 as the ideal location noting it has great beaches and weather, is a very dog friendly community, and has a level of sophistication not found in many communities of its size. John and Laurel along with their dog, Luna, a rescue German Shepard Boxer mix, are loving the Vero lifestyle. He joined the Riomar Country Club where he serves on the Greens committee and the Strategic Planning committee, and they are members at Quail Valley River Club and of Fisher's Island Club of New York where they spend Summers.

They have five grown children, Augustas Pierce, 25, graduated from Hobart College and works for Triumverate, an environmental engineering firm in Boston, MA; Charlotte Pierce, 23, graduated from Colorado College and works for Vertafore an insurance technology firm in Denver, CO; Caroline Pierce, 19, a Freshman at Santa Clara University in San Jose, CA; Mackenzie, 25, who works as a nurse at UCSF Benihoff Childrens Hospital in the cardiac care department and Elsa, 23, who is studying engineering in Bozeman, MT. When his kids were young, he served as Vice Chair and Chairman of the Board for The Teton Science Schools and coached local kids club soccer.

John loves travel adventures having toured Morocco; sailed the sea of Cortez; Heli-skied the Canadian Rockies; surfed the north shore of Kauai; caught giant Trevally on the fly in the Seychelles; toured all of western and eastern Europe; bare boated in southeast Alaska; Elk hunted in Montana; bird hunted in New England; golfed in New Zealand; traveled the east coast of Australia; swam with sharks and manta rays in Tahiti; and did a photo safari in Kenya…so far. At home, he enjoys good food, good people, golf, paddle boarding (SUP), biking, pickle ball, fishing, music, backgammon and cribbage.

John Pierce brings a level of professionalism and a spectrum of luxury real estate knowledge that is prized in the business and he looks forward to utilizing his worldly talents assisting Vero Beach clients with all their real estate needs.
