Earning his real estate license in 2006, John Duke has “been there and done that.” Born in Austin and raised in Liberty Hill, he earned a B.A. in Environmental Science from Concordia University at Austin, where he met his wife of 24 years, Meredith. With a varied background of digging ditches as a young teen to lifeguarding as a college student, owning a landscaping company and building his home, Johnny has done a little bit of everything, which gives him a well-rounded experience when working with his clients.
You might even say that Johnny had an interesting introduction to buying and selling at an early age. Although not common at all these days, Johnny and his family were trappers when he was still a young boy in Liberty Hill. (By the way, Dahlia’s Cafe in Liberty Hill was once owned by the Ellis’s where the Duke family bought their traps. You can still see some of the traps hanging on the walls of Dahlia’s). He learned the art of negotiation when selling the furs and that skill stayed with him (and has been honed) over the years.
Johnny is also a Certified Military Residential Specialist (CMRS). The John Duke Team honors and appreciates all of the military that serve on our behalf. It’s an honor and a privilege to work with them.
In a nutshell, Johnny’s passions are God, family, hunting, fishing, training the family labradors, and Krav Maga (a form of mixed martial arts).
