John Whiteside entered the real estate business in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1975 with Rector, Phillips, and Morse after a successful insurance career. He was a leading producer until 1981, when he was hired by Merrill Lynch Realty as assistant to the CEO of the Merrill Lynch Dallas operation. In this capacity, John expanded their operation to the Lakewood/East Dallas market, where he opened an office for Merrill Lynch. Lakewood/East Dallas was “love at first sight.” In 1984, Merrill Lynch pulled out of the real estate business, but leaving Lakewood/East Dallas was not an option for John. He founded Whiteside Associates Realtors in 1984 and managed it until 1996. Whiteside Associates was the 10th largest real estate firm in Dallas when it was acquired in 1997. John served in management until 2002. In no time John decided that commuting out of Lakewood was backwards. Returning to his roots in Lakewood/East Dallas he formed Team Whiteside, providing the local community involvement, local knowledge and national exposure. “Team Whiteside strives to provide the best of all possible worlds for our customers,” John explains. “We offer big corporate support, coupled with boutique-type local service.

When Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty, the largest family owned real estate company in Dallas, approached John with prospect of opening a Lakewood office it was a perfect match. Now Team Whiteside is part of the leading local firm with the finest global exposure.

John is a graduate of Arkansas Tech University, The Travelers Insurance Marketing School, The Realtors Institute (GRI), and is a Certified Residential Broker. His passions are duck hunting, “The Blues”, Lakewood/East Dallas real estate and YMCA. John’s memberships include: the National Association of Realtors®, the Greater Dallas Association of Realtors®, the Texas Association of Realtors®, named in “Who’s Who in Residential Real Estate” by The Dallas Business Journal, Hella Shrine, Ducks Unlimited {lifetime member), East Dallas YMCA Board, Lakewood Country Club, Kappa Sigma Alumni Association, AARP and The Mickey Mouse Club of 1959.
