Born in Hawaii, John has always had island living in his blood. Life leads him from Hawaii to southern California and then to Boston where he began his real estate career in 1995, over 20 years ago. Needing to escape the harsh winters in the northeast, John discovered St. John and the rest is history. He made a 2-year plan to uproot his life and move to paradise, but, he couldn’t wait that long…18 months later, in 2001, St. John was home and he began his St. John real estate career. John brings a multi-faceted, progressive approach to his real estate career and is licensed in the US Virgin Islands, California, and Massachusetts. Please join us in welcoming John to 340 Real Estate Company. He can be reached at 340.998.0423 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Jennifer arrived on St. John in the mid 80’s, just in time to celebrate her 18th birthday! Jennifer was born and raised in Germany and the mountains of the Basque country, world famous for its exquisite surfing beaches and the beauty of the Pyrenees Mountains. Her love for beautiful places brought Jennifer to St. John when her father asked her to work with him on his new venture, the first “true” grocery store on island and NY style deli.
After many years, Jennifer left the successful family business and opened the famous Dockside Pub on St. John. For 12 years she was the first smiling face you saw when arriving by ferry to St. John. Her passion for food and hard work made Dockside Pub a local favorite and it is still missed 14 years after its closing. Her two sons Justin and Julien, who were both born and raised in St. John, had their lunch boxes coveted daily for the fabulous sandwiches Jennifer packed for them!
Jennifer eventually took her natural salesmanship abilities to the Westin St. John and successfully sold vacation ownership for 13 years. Her friendly and hardworking personality made her a favorite among Westin St. John clients.
Life in an office became too sedentary for this energetic lady and it became time to move on to her long dreamt passion for real estate sales and property management. Her never-ending quest for perfection and exemplary customer service makes this an easy transition for Jennifer. She has traded her corporate heels for flip flops and is quickly growing her property management business with several homes already under her management.
Jennifer joined 340 Real Estate in 2015 and is very excited to translate her love and knowledge of St. John into finding the perfect home for clients looking for their own beloved piece of the island. Her never-ending smile and trusting soul make her the right choice for anyone looking to buy or sell property on this little slice of paradise she has called home for over 30 years.
Tina Petitto has lived on St John since 2004, when she left her then position as Director of Finance for the Sales and Marketing Division of Hearst Publications in Charlotte, NC. She spent her childhood until the age of 21 living in the Middle East and SE Asia. Time away from home was spent at boarding school, college and the Graduate School at Villanova University.
In the late 80’s she was introduced to St John by her still best friend from High School. After a short two year stay, and many return visits, she moved back with her family. Tina is a Finance and Accounting Manager for many St John businesses, owns several rental properties, and has recently become more formally involved in the world of Real Estate.
She currently resides in quiet and peaceful Fish Bay with her contractor husband, Joe Nogueira.
Her daughter, stepson, and two stepdaughters live in the Carolinas, which is a place still close to her heart. She loves spending time in Miami visiting her mother and, most of all, traveling and exploring the world with her daughter and family.
Mary Moroney hails from New England, born and raised in Connecticut she moved north to Maine in 1976. In Maine, she raised her children and was a K-12 Art teacher with over 500 students per week. Mary and husband Tim bought land on St John in 1998 as their 5 children were emptying the nest. They had a 5-year plan to sell all of their property in Maine so they could sail their boat down to St John and build a home. In 2003 they pushed off the mooring in Rockland, Maine and sailed to Newport RI, out to Bermuda and down to St John. Their adventure had begun in earnest and although there were rough seas at times and hoops to jump through with the building process they managed to build their home on St John. Mary and Tim were designers, general contractors, builders, electricians, carpenters, tilers, masons, plumbers, and laborers.
Their home is masonry, poured concrete with wood jalousie windows and doors. Although they did hire help for large cement pours, they managed to achieve the build themselves with patience and hard work. This experience has given Mary great insight into the building process and how to make dreams come true. Mary is also a short-term rental manager and private home property manager. She volunteers and is an officer of the Virgin Islands Audubon Society on St John and is a board member of Estate Fish Bay Owners Association. Mary and Tim love life and have an ever-growing family of their 5 children they will soon come have an even dozen grandchildren. Let her put her passion and experience to work for you!

In 1980, when Mount St. Helens Wayne moved back to Mid-Coast Maine where he spent twenty-four years working in the construction trades. He has experience in all aspects of carpentry and cabinet making as well as many years working as both the on-site manager and as project manager for two different design firms simultaneously.

Elise is originally from New Hampshire, having spent her summers on the coast of Maine. It is there that Elise first developed her love of the sea and its beaches. Elise studied at CUNY and lived and worked in the New York area for over 10 years from Long Island to Manhattan and Connecticut. Her former husband, attorney Russell Burman, still lives in Sands Point. Elise pursued her love of travel by becoming a flight attendant for the international charter airline, ONA. She was also the U.S. Editor of Le Fashion Guide and a mortgage broker assistant for Global Realty Partners.
The tropic winds were calling, however, and Elise decided to continue her adventures south to Miami Beach where she began a successful design company that specialized in architectural finishes. That is until she was pulled onto a boat by a friend who was aware of her culinary talent. The charter was heading to the Bahama’s Abaco Islands and was in need of a yacht chef. The first glimpses of the clear turquoise waters were all Elise needed to know that she would always surround herself with this beauty and climate. Elise continued working as a yacht chef throughout the Caribbean and Bahamas for 12 years. While visiting friends on Lovango Cay off St John, Elise decided to stay for a period of 4 months on nearby Water Island. When it came time to transition to land, Elise realized that St John was the perfect island….beautiful, quiet, safe, not too remote and filled with wonderful people …. this was her haven from the cold of the Northeast, the isolation of The Big City and the traffic of Miami.
Elise currently works as a private villa chef and concierge. As a member of the Freshwater Church, Elise is active in both the children’s ministry and tutoring at JESS. All ages are put at ease by her sweet, joyful spirit. Elise genuinely loves these islands and looks forward to helping you make your own transition to paradise.
