Lake Fork

Because Life is Better at the Lake

John Jarvis

Broker/Owner, Lone Star Realty

903-473-1776



I graduated from the University of Texas in 1974 and moved to east Texas in 1980.  My wife and I started manufacturing a women's sportswear line in 1985 called Alexander Campbell.  We sold the company in 1997.  Shortly after selling the company, we both decided on careers in real estate.  We both became licensed realtors in the summer of 1999.  I received my Texas and Colorado broker's license respectively in January and November 2002. In 2003, I started Lone Star Realty out of my home.  By 2006, I had built a new, 2000 sq. foot office out at Lake Fork.  Then in 2007 I opened an office in Winnsboro.   I opened my third office located in Mineola in Spring of 2010 and have just added offices in Austin, Canton and Longview.  I served as Vice President of the Greater Tyler Association of Realtors in 2014 and was recently elected as Chairman of the Board of the Greater Tyler Association of Realtors for 2015. My business and reputation have been built around three aspects: hard work, integrity and customer service.  I have been a multi-million dollar producer every year since 2000.  I personally have sold almost $100,000,000.  I have been married for almost 40 years to my wife, Barbara.  We have three beautiful children, James, Austin and Sarah. My favorite dog is a Great Dane and currently we own two of them, a Mantle and a Harlequin.  When I have time, I love to golf, fish and either go to the beach or snow skiing.  Problem is, I don't have too much time to do either because I work too much.
