About John Kern

John Kern
Broker /Owner - REALTOR®
It's All About You—Customer! John is passionate about helping people get the very best from their real estate deals! Hire John & start packing! John knew that he wanted to sell real estate after selling two of his personal homes in the late 1990s. He realized how impactful real estate is. To be a part of that process and make it understandable and seamless, he became a licensed Real Estate professional in 1999. John soon established a reputation for great customer relationships and strong industry knowledge. John then became a licensed real estate broker in 2004 because he was inspired to build upon his vision of successful real estate relationships and practices. In 2008, he joined Platinum Properties as an owner, and he also co-owns Benchmark Title & Escrow, LLC along with a national referral network. From his many years of experience in the real estate industry, John believes in applying his vast knowledge of contracts and real estate law while putting his customers first. John is committed to the real estate profession for years to come, and he is eager to serve you like no other REALTOR®.

Personally, John is proud of his strong family ties and his belief in creating solid positive relationships. Born to a large family of eight children in Queens, New York, he learned early on that relationships are important. At age two, his family moved to Las Cruces, New Mexico. There he believes he was involved in his first real estate transaction helping his parents to sell their home when they moved to Titusville, Florida. John has called Florida his home since 1969. After he graduated high school, he ran two successful businesses, bowled two perfect games, worked in sales, and then found his love for real estate. When he moved to South Florida from Titusville in 1997 for business opportunities, he met the love of his life—Jackie. John and Jackie married in 1998. In 2002, he and Jackie welcomed their son, John Jr., to the family. Even though John is working his real estate business 24-7, John finds time to boat and fish with his family and friends as well as golf.
