Agent John Tinsley


John is a native of Transylvania County with deep roots in the area. As a fifth-generation landscaper in Transylvania County, and owner of Tinsley’s Landscaping, John transitioned into the real estate profession in 2013. Since that time he has built a business focused on his client’s needs and helping to understand difficult transactions such as foreclosures and short sales. While helping sellers, John works hard to market their home and sell with fewer days on market and higher sales price. This business model has made John one of the top producers in Transylvania County over the past several years.

John and his wife Allison are the parents of three children Shelby, Dillon, and Silas. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his family, camping, and attending his children’s various sporting events. As well as being a licensed realtor, John is also a licensed landscape contractor. He also has a Bachelors of Science in Business Management from Western Governors University.


"John Tinsley was very personable and responsive and found a buyer for my property within a couple of months listing with him and Looking Glass after I had been with another local realtor and realty company for 4 years with no responsiveness or attentiveness."

"Looking Glass Realty provided expertise, professional guidance, and an extremely customer-oriented engagement. This is, hands down, an exceptional Realty organization. My Realtor, John Tinsley, continued to go above and beyond to ensure we closed on time, with both sides benefiting from the sale."

-Angie Reno

"John Tinsley was great! As a first time property buyer we had a lot of questions , but John never left any unanswered and always responded promptly. As an experienced realtor he was able to walk us through the entire process with ease! Very knowledgeable about the area and I highly recommend having John as your agent if you are planning to buy in the area!"

-Trisha Riddle

"John Tinsley was great in the transaction I appreciate all he did for us he's an excellent agent and a great person!"

-Greg Smith

"John Tinsley was who we used. We were not only able to sell a home but also bought one with him and on each side he did great. I would recommend him for many reasons but mostly because he is not a "salesman" he gives you real advice and says it how it is."
