An immigrant born in Naples, Italy he immigrated to the US at 13 years old. In his new hometown of Wichita Falls, TX, he attended Burkburnett High School and had a crash course in English and American culture. After high school, his parents returned to Italy, but JP stayed to pursue the American dream, earning a BS degree in Engineering at Midwestern University and beginning his journey.
JP first ventured in real estate as a REALTOR in South Carolina, eventually running the top team in his market. After several years of selling and hundreds of deals under his belt, he was compelled to move back to Texas in DFW to be close to family and expand his business where he would eventually start JPAR - a real estate success story now expanding across the USA. His favorite quote: “I wasn’t born here, but got here as fast I could”. JP currently resides in Frisco, Texas with his wife, Lauren, and his three children.
