Meet John

Integrity, hard-work, industry knowledge, and conservative values - these are the cornerstones John Bratton lives by.  John is a Conservative Republican. He is fortunate that his clients have been so accountable, ethical, polite, honest and are elated to be in Texas. 

Born and raised in Texas, John's real estate career began long before he sold his first home. From a young age, he was raised with a steadfast, unwavering work ethic. Growing up on a ranch, he understood the importance of finishing what he started, no matter what. 

At the age of fifteen, he started his first decking and framing company.  Eventually, Gateway Construction maintained over 160 employees. As the general contractor, he has designed and or built homes for renowned clients in Texas, Colorado and California, including Jim Fitzgerald, a former owner of the Golden State Warriors, and John Hendricks, the founder of the Discovery Channel. John has taken the dedication, professionalism and passion for excellence that he had in construction and applied it to his career in real estate.  

In 2020, he and his wife Daphne, became the owners of Kerrville Real Estate Company, with the phenomenal Jo Anne English as the broker.  Working together, John and Daphne have been helping clients for years and are passionate about making a difference in their community. " My wife Daphne is a real asset and an integral part in building our real estate business.  We believe trust and communication is key to building our client relationships."   

John proudly serves his clients, buyers and sellers, in Bandera, Kerr, Gillespie, Blanco, and Kendall Counties. But in all reality, he will go wherever his clients need him to go. He grew up in the Hill Country and has spent more than half his 61 years working in and around these counties.    

He believes strongly that the best part of living in the Hill Country is absolutely the people. His favorite aspect - that it is a conservative county! A place that values conservative beliefs and respectful manners - where most children still hold the door open for women and say yes sir and no ma’am.   

Whether he is working with Ranchers or Home Buyers who are ready to transition to the next stage of their lives, John has an unwavering dedication to serving his clients' needs. He is proud of the great team he and Daphne have put together at Kerrville Real Estate Company.
