John P. Acord, MBA
DRE #1758962
Background:I grew up in a small town near Redding, CA and later moved and graduated from the University of California at Davis with a BS in Chemcial Engineering. I lived in the SF Bay area for several years thereafter working as an engineering consultant to a wide range of multi-billion companies. During this time I continued my education through UC Davis and completed my MBA. After completion of my MBA, I decided that it was time to stop flying every week and get grounded to start family and thus I got my real estate broker license.In 2007, I received my broker license and also started my company, Arda Realty Inc. where we focus and work with a wide range of buyers and sellers (incuding experience with short sales, foreclosures, and auctions).Personal Life:

I have been married since August 2001 to my wonderful wife, Tammi and we have 3 incredible children, Brittney, Christian, and Ethan. Many of our daily and seasonal activities include…soccer, golf, snow skiing, baseball, scuba diving, fishing, hunting, camping, and traveling. We strive to give our family the best memories and experiences we possibly can.
