John Kourafas brings a fresh sales and marketing perspective to the Visintainer Group. Prior to his licensing in commercial real estate, John worked in the sales department of the nation’s premiere food service provider, Waypoint. Waypoint is a national sales brokerage for multibillion-dollar food manufacturers including Tyson, Land o’ Lakes, and ConAgra. He specialized in key accounts with a strong focus on governmental regulations and commodity balances. While there he developed a keen insight into portfolio management, client development and the competitive nature of a national sales team. Previous experience with Donaghy Sales, LLC (Anheuser Busch Wholesaler) triggered his interest for market development through interpersonal connections.

He believes strongly in ethical and passionate client service and is well-versed in the technology we use to identify and maximize investment opportunities.
