About

“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

Some people don’t just live, they squeeze every ounce out of each and every moment. They search for ways to make the most of the opportunities that life brings them. Meet local businessman John David Terpo. This quote from “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” perfectly encapsulates his unique attitude about the world around him. It’s an attitude that’s completely infectious — and often inspiring. In fact, many people are surprised that this young businessman actually has a “bucket list”, an exhaustive list of activities and aspirations usually reserved for older people reflecting on the things they should have accomplished or strived for.

A Perpetual Quest

John David’s bucket list includes everything from scuba diving in the Cayman Islands to something as sublime as cherishing more time with family and friends, who are a hugely important part of his life. He dreams of running the New York City Marathon, teaching a real estate class as an adjunct professor at the University of Alabama and expanding his communication skills to include multiple languages.

Perhaps more important than the activities on John David’s bucket list is what they say about him as a person. He’s a man of unlimited ambition who lives each day to the fullest. “My mom always said, ‘If you get the chance to do something, do it!’” John David says. “You can’t determine if you like something unless you give it a try.”

Achievement Feeds the Soul

Throughout his life, John David has channeled this extraordinary spirit and ambition into everything he does. He grew up in Hoover, developing his strong work ethic and business savvy from his father and his love of life from his mother. He went on to achieve his dream of attending the University of Alabama, where he double majored in Marketing and Management with a specialization in Real Estate. He made the most of his time in Tuscaloosa by embracing every opportunity, volunteering for Habitat for Humanity, mentoring at a local elementary school, participating in groups and being recognized for his efforts. He also worked at a real estate office, which confirmed his decision to pursue real estate as a career once he graduated. During his senior year, he was named the Hulsey Scholar and earned a real estate scholarship for his outstanding efforts.

After graduation, John David returned home to the Birmingham area and jumped into his real estate career with both feet. Combining his formal real estate education with his unbounded energy, he quickly established himself as a premier real estate resource for anyone buying or selling a home in the Birmingham Metro area or “Over the Mountain.”

Make Every Moment Count!

Not surprisingly, John David’s approach to business is much like his approach to life. He believes that his role in every real estate transaction is to help his clients make the most of their opportunities.
