About John MacGovern

Hello. My name is John MacGovern, and I am excited to be able to work with you to either sell your existing home or find the perfect new home. The Upper Valley has many unique real estate opportunities from large estates to quaint getaways. The ideal home for you to purchase is out there as well as the perfect buyer for your home. I will help you market your home to find the right buyer who will care for your home as much as you do, or  I can use the tools available to me to help you find the home that fills your needs and suits your budget.

As a graduate of Dartmouth College, in Hanover, NH, with a BA in Chinese Language and Culture, it has afforded me the opportunity to travel the world. I did spend time in Italy, China, Taiwan, and the Philippines before settling in New England. My wife, Fiona Blunden, and I finally made the decision to completely settle in this area nearly 20 years ago. Since moving to the area, I have been involved in my community, and know the area and the people very well.

To the real estate business, I bring a background in politics and public service. Listening to people and learning what they want or need are skills I have developed in my years of public service. I will put those skills to use in helping you find the perfect home, that best suits your needs within your budget, for you to purchase. Still active in my local community Development Review Board, Conservation Commission, Budget Committee, and as the local Tree Warden, I enjoy serving the residents of my small Vermont town.

Not only active in my community, I love being active in the outdoors. Running, hiking, and horseback riding are a few of the activities I love to engage in with my lovely wife, Fiona. We love being out and about enjoying the beautiful Vermont scenery.

With over 40 years of experience in the Upper Valley, first as a second homeowner and then as a resident, I have the knowledge and patience to listen to you, advocate for you, and help you through your next purchase or sale. Give me a call today at 802-238-3970 or email me at jmac@johnbassette.com.
