John Wesley Brooks, Realtor, Real Estate Investor, Property Manager at Coldwell Banker of the Valley, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the residential real estate industry.
Mr. Brooks is an independent real estate investor and an agent and property manager for Coldwell Banker of the Valley, where he specializes in residential properties, relocation, and new construction. Real estate was Mr. Brooks’ family business, and much of his inspiration came from his grandmother, who founded the Landmark Realty Center in 1959 and became the first president of the Huntsville MLS Board of Realtors. He started his career with Landmark Realty Center in 2003 after completing a Bachelor’s degree in marketing, advertising, and business management at the University of South Alabama, and pursued several additional real estate credentials, becoming a Certified International Luxury Home Specialist and earning E Pro certification.
He remained an agent at Landmark Realty Center until 2009, when he joined Coldwell Banker of the Valley specializing in luxury property management and sales throughout the Huntsville metro area. Mr. Brooks has been ranked in the top 5% of Huntsville realtors by Home Snap, was featured in Top Agent Magazine, and has been one of the top two agents at Coldwell Banker of the Valley for nearly a decade. He was inducted into the Coldwell Banker International Sterling Society in 2013 and the Coldwell Banker International President’s Society in 2016, and has been presented with numerous awards for his sales, which have totaled more than $70 million in revenue since 2015. In addition to his work for Coldwell Banker of the Valley, Mr. Brooks has worked with Exit Realty of the Valley as an auctioneer and agent since 2005, and served as Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Sunshine Aerospace between 2010 and 2012.
Since 2018, Mr. Brooks has purchased more than 90 multifamily properties as an independent real estate investor, and he has been involved in the development of 16 new construction homes since 2011. He attributes much of his success to his mentors and coaches, his customer-centered approach, and his roots in the Huntsville area, and advises other would-be real estate professionals to hone their marketing savvy before entering the field. After the 2008 market crash, Mr. Brooks renewed his dedication to community service, and he currently volunteers with the Downtown Rescue Mission and Tree of Life Ministries as well as several private fundraisers. He looks forward to continuing to build his investment portfolio over the coming years, and hopes to begin investing in Airbnb and other short-term rental properties.
