John Horner is a founding member of the Core Developments Companies. John started his real estate investing journey back in 2009 when he purchased his first foreclosure in his hometown of Bowling Green, Ohio, fixed it up and rented it out for the next 8 years. John moved to Columbus in 2010 when he and his wife got married, but he didn’t become involved in Columbus investment real estate until 2013 when he started aggressively looking for more real estate to invest in. He started out by networking and being very active in the real estate investing forums on BiggerPockets.com. There, he met other investors and learned the basics about investing in real estate.
John did a few deals before he found his new business partner, Brian Rightler, through BiggerPockets. John and Brian have been flipping and renting properties in the Greater Columbus area for over 5 years. John leads the Central Ohio Investor Network, a real estate focused monthly Meetup meant to educate and network its members! John is the cohost of the Take Action Real Estate Podcast where he shares his knowledge and experience with his listeners, and helps other investors avoid the pitfalls that he’s experienced the last 10 years investing in Real Estate! John has done over 180 real estate deals and is excited to grow his company, his team and his network to help others succeed in this industry! John and his wife Amy have 3 children ranging from 2 years old to 6. He enjoys coaching their Tball teams and going on family bike rides with them!
