About John

John Barroso is president and real estate agent at Barroso Real Estate, an agency located in the heart of downtown Chico. John is a graduate of California State University, Chico where he received a BA in English Literature. After graduation, John and his wife, Sara, bought their first home together, rented it out and moved to Italy where they taught English as a second language to high level executives at FIAT in Torino, Italy. This career path eventually led him back to Chico to take advantage of the real estate growth going on in Chico. Soon after returning to the States, he and Sara bought their second home and started his career in the loan industry. It was in this capacity that he acknowledged that his true passion is real estate. With encouragement from his friends and family, John received his real estate license and decided to hang it with the brokerage firm of Keller Williams in part due to the company’s commitment to community it serves. This level of community involvement is important to him as he and his family are enthusiastic members of the local community. He has since achieved many awards in real estate including being awarded the 2015 #1 Real Estate Agent in the Chico News and Review. He is proud to have closed 60 million in volume in the past five years and is always appreciative to have his support team by his side to achieve his goals. John is extremely well-informed of the local community and in the local real estate market. He is himself a local real estate investor, developer and property manager. He is confident that his personal experience, communication skills and industry knowledge gives him the ability to list and sell a home or purchase a home with understanding, skill and expertise. His familiarity of this area, connections within the community and his past sales record are indicative of his success in the real estate industry. His twelve years in real estate have earned him the highest 5 star rating on Zillow.com for both residential and commercial real estate.

I was a top producer at Keller Williams within my first year with the company. I am an active member of my community being on the board of directors of Chico High School Sports Boosters, I am a co-founder and vice president of the Chico Business Group and I am a past member of The Chico Noon Exchange. I have two fantastic children and a remarkable husband that add spice and unpredictability to my life and I love it! I am honored to help you with any real estate needs that you might have!
