John Witherspoon has lived in Brevard so long, you almost forget he’s not from here. Hailing from Huntsville, AL, John graduated from Auburn University in 1992 in Finance, then received his master’s degree in Geography at Appalachian State University in 1995 before settling in Brevard.
Following his passion for people, real estate, and land conservation, John, alongside Al and Parker Platt, co-founded WPA in 1998 with a vision of providing clients with not only a premiere real estate experience, but also a variety of innovative living opportunities. Since then, John has helped clients find exactly what they’re looking for – whether it is a mountaintop estate, riverfront farm, larger conservation acreage, or custom mountain dream home.
Outside of WPA, John enjoys serving the community through various organizational appointments, such as the Conserving Carolina Land Committee, Board of North American Land Trust, Board of Friends of DuPont, First United Methodist Church Board of Trustees, and Transylvania County Agriculture Advisory Committee. Any additional free time John has is spent the following ways (in no particular order): searching out the best barbecue in NC, practicing his splits with Brevard’s elite men’s dance troupe, the Pisgah Thunder, and on his family farm with his wife, Jackie, kids, Eliza and Knox, and dogs Scout and Betty.
