Welcome to my Website

Hi, I'm John Yorke and I have lived and worked in the Clarkston community for 19 years. With nearly 20 years of real estate experience in both residential and investment properties; I am looking forward to helping you with any real estate questions or needs you may have.

Community Involvement

I've been an Algebra Teacher as well as a coach in the Clarkston community for 18 years.  Working with kids for so long has been more fullfilling than I could have imagined.  I knew Clarkston was home the first week of school during my first year teaching back in 1995.  Since that time, my love for the community has only grown.

Personal Background

I spent my childhood and teenage years in the small town of Millington, MI, about 10 miles outside of Frankenmuth. It was here that I experienced the small town values and sense of community that so many people are looking for when searching for a new home.

After graduating from Saginaw Valley State University, I became a middle school algebra teacher in the Clarkston school district. It is a job that I enjoy, especially when I see the growth my students exhibit from school start to finish. I have also coached many athletic teams over the years and am currently in my ninth year as the head track coach of the Clarkston High School girls track team.

My sister and brother also live in Michigan, along with their families; as does my mother. I am the proud uncle of two nieces and two nephews.

Personal Interests

I love to be active, whether it's outdoor activities or just spending time with friends and family.  I spend quite a bit of time around Clarkston as well as metro Detroit, but enjoy traveling as well.  If left up to me to decide on a vacation, I would be on a flight out west for a week of skiing.
