John McConnell

"John McConnell is truly a diamond in the ruff and is incredible at his job." - Trisha V.


I am a Colorado native who grew up in the mountain town of Conifer. I spent my younger years in the forests and mountains of the Rockies before I enlisted into the Colorado Air National Guard. Since then I have been to Air Force basic training and have been trained in Satellite Communications. After returning home, I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Communications and Philosophy from the University of Colorado at Boulder, all while working full time for the Guard.

In 2013, our community experienced the devastating September Floods; and as a member of the Colorado Air National Guard, I had the opportunity to deploy out and help the citizens of Lyons, Colorado evacuate the area and avoid further dangers. It is because of experiences like this that I choose to stay a member of the Guard: helping my home, my neighbors and my family in times of crisis.

My mother was born Deaf and that gives me the unique knowledge of American Sign Language and Deaf culture; I love working with deaf clients because I can give them the unique attention that they deserve!

Outside of work, I love to spend my time in the gym! Many years ago I sent my sights on making it onto the show “American Ninja Warrior” and last year I was finally able to see that dream realized when I ran in the Indianapolis Qualifiers for ANW 2016. It was an amazing event and I am thankful every day that they selected me and allowed me the opportunity to compete; however, I wasn’t able to go as far as I had hoped and my run was not aired. You can still see me in the promotional material and the introductions to the show! My dream isn’t finished though! The show is returning to Denver and hopefully so will I! Ask me and I will tell you all about it!

As a member of the fantastic 8z Louisville Team, I bring clients my endless passion and enthusiasm! I try and experience life to the fullest with my foot on the gas and working with 8z is no different. I welcome challenges and dedicate myself to the task until even the toughest obstacles are overcome. I am excited to be part of a Real Estate company that breaks away from the norm and places people before paychecks! I look forward to helping you sell your house, finding your first place, your dream home, establishing an investment property, or simply just talking about the community that we call home. Together we will find what you’re looking for, and have a great time doing it. I love my job and I truly enjoy working with people of all backgrounds and helping them fulfill their dreams; because Real Estate isn’t just selling houses, its finding dreams. Let me help you find yours!

John was great. We needed to sell our house fast and he got the job done within two weeks. Couldn't have found a better agent.

John was fantastic and I highly recommend him! He was very pro-active in the search for my new home which is essential in the fast paced real estate market of Colorado's front range right now. He quickly had quality properties for me to look at that met the specifications I'd given to him. I was impressed with his availability to answer questions by phone, text and email. Anytime I reached out with questions I recieved a speedy response. In no time at all, John was able to find and help me through the process of buying my first home. It is clear in working with John that he truly cares about his clients and has the skills to help navigate you through the tricky real estate market. If you're looking for property, call him!

We just recently bought a condo in Boulder and if anyone is in this game right now they know how fast houses go here. The market is tough, fast, and there is no time to mull over ideas. In this market you need to be sure footed and have a great realtor that knows what they are doing. You need an advocate that is there for you, someone who has your best interest at heart and will work hard every step of the way. We were so thankful to have met John McConnell at 8z real estate. He is a go-getter, organized, smart, honest, and has your best interest at heart. He is younger which is what is needed in this market, he is hungry and willing to do whatever is takes to get you the place you love. John was so patient with us, he took us to many showings and when we finally were ready to pull the trigger he lead us through the whole process. He was never too busy for us and he helped us with the communication with the mortgage people, which can be overwhelming and like talking in another language. John McConnell is truly a diamond in the ruff and is incredible at his job. Buying a house can be one of the biggest decisions in your life and you want a realtor who will see you as a person not as a number. John is your guy!! I really can't say enough about what a fantastic experience we had buying our house, with him by our side. He even literally helped us move physically. We were short a helping hand and had stopped by after our closing to check on us. He didn't hesitate to start moving boxes with us. He also helped us contact the HOA after we moved in to get a work order in motion for us, something he did not have to do. He helped us make our dreams come true with patience, hard work, and fighting for us every step of the way. This was not my first house buying experience, but it was definitely my favorite and easiest thanks to my realtor John McConnell. Thank you!!
