John McSweyn

Founder, Head of Dreams

Finance, Property Investment, Business Sales and Acquisitions.

John had a vision to build a brokerage where clients can partner with one broker to build all their wealth creation ideas. The one stop shop concept has been extremely successful, as our clients appreciate working with the one broker for the entire journey. Building Pathways to Dreams is our statement, and what the company was founded on.

Combining the three products of Finance, Property Investment and Business Sales, The Brokerage Connection has helped clients build their wealth through our experience and knowledge. John founded The Brokerage Connection to provide the highest level of commitment and service to its customers.
