John Philpott


John Philpott has been in love with the Salt Lake Valley since moving his family here from California in 2009. Since then, this valley has been “the right place” for John, his wife, five children (one by birth and four by adoption), and two dogs (both by adoption), and John can’t imagine a better setting for all of the craziness and activity his family life brings. With all there is to do and see with great views everywhere you turn, John is convinced that Salt Lake is the perfect place to live, work, play, raise children and retire, and he loves the process of helping his clients in whatever stage of life they may be.

John grew up as the fourth of seven kids in Santa Rosa, CA, nestled among the rolling hills of Northern California’s wine country. Regular day trips and vacations among California’s hills, mountains, beaches, lakes, and beautiful cities with family and friends gave him a great appreciation for the beauty that can be found in both natural and cityscape views. John’s desire to always live somewhere with a view deepened while studying, traveling, and living in places like Hawaii, Tonga, New Zealand, China, Fiji, Venezuela, Mexico, the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range, various national parks, and some of the nation’s most spectacular cities like San Francisco, Portland, San Diego, New York City and Salt Lake City.

When John’s not working or traveling, there are a variety of other ways he’ll be enjoying life in the Salt Lake Valley. You’ll commonly find him outdoors, golfing, hiking, camping, or just hanging out around the house, yard or park with his family. He may not be a natural handyman, but John loves working on new projects around the house. John also loves exploring the menus of local eateries. John’s greatest love among his hobbies is acting. He has Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in vocal performance with an emphasis in musical theatre and opera, so don’t be surprised when you see John on stage at some of the Salt Lake region’s best stages like Hale Centre Theatre (Sandy) and Centerpoint Legacy Theatre (Centerville).

John’s career and family life were interrupted by a cancer diagnosis (Plasma Cell Leukemia) in October 2012. As he and his family endured months of chemotherapy, two bone marrow transplants, and recovery spanning nearly two years, John grew to recognize more clearly than ever that each day is truly a gift that should be unwrapped, enjoyed to the fullest and used for good. John feels greater satisfaction now than ever before in the time he spends with his family and hobbies and in the important work, he’s privileged to do with his clients.

As John has worked shoulder-to-shoulder with clients to navigate all kinds of circumstances and complex transactions for over two decades, he has developed a simple mindset he now applies to his career with Fitness Realty: Outperform the Norm. In fact, John fully embraces his nickname, “The Abnormal Real Estate Agent.” John strives to make it clear in every interaction with his clients that he is committed to performing for them with clearer communication, better focus, greater diligence, and a more satisfying outcome than anything a “normal” agent would provide. John feels blessed to have the privilege of supporting his family by supporting his clients in the pursuit of their real estate-related goals and dreams.
