About John Thomson
John was born and raised in Truro, Nova Scotia. He attended Dalhousie University in Halifax, receiving a Bachelor of Science in 1973 and a Bachelor of Education in 1974. John taught one year of Vocational Science in Nova Scotia and then moved to Alberta to teach high school Biology and junior high Science for the next three years.
John attended the Alberta College of Art in Calgary from 1979 to 1983, receiving a Diploma in Visual Communications. Following graduation, John was employed by Foothills Hospital for seven years as a graphic artist/designer creating and illustrating advanced patient education programs and instructional materials. Today, John’s artistic endeavors focus on individual commissions: architectural renderings of buildings, historic sites and private homes.
Shortly after arriving in Alberta, John met his wife, Lynn. They have three children: a daughter, two sons, seven grandchildren and one great grandchild.
Between 1984 and 2010, John and Lynn owned and operated a retail store in Cochrane. The consignment shop, Old & Crafty, featured a collection of locally produced artwork and crafts, as well as a wide variety of collectibles and antique furniture. It became well known as a popular destination for both local and visiting shoppers.
While owning the store, John developed an interest in the tourism industry and currently serves as president of the Cochrane Tourism Association, as a director of the Cochrane Destination Marketing Fund.
A long-standing interest in the housing industry, an artistic career focusing on architectural rendering and a 25 year retail business career based on consignment selling, led John in early 2003, to becoming a licensed real estate agent with the Calgary Real Estate Board. Long associated with Royal LePage, in 2016, John moved to Kidder & Company Real Estate & Property Management.
In the real estate business, John strives to provide the very best in service helping clients sell their existing homes or buyers find that special place. Knowledge of Cochrane and area, a keen interest in the real estate industry and the desire to provide exemplary and exceptional customer service make John the ideal choice as your personal real estate representative.
