To Whom it may Concern,
My name is John Barnette and I have been in the residential construction business for over 20 years. In my twenty plus years I have met and interacted with thousands of different characters from all walks of life. If you asked me the question: who is the one person you have encountered over the past twenty years you admired and respected above all others, my answer would be John Haynes.
I had the privilege to meet John about four years ago when he moved here to create his vision “The Headwaters at Banner Elk” and create he did. I have watched him turn a vision into a wonderful reality in a short period of time. The amount of work he accomplished has been an inspiration to me personally because of his passionate approach and dedication to his vision. John is a hard working focused person and he has the ability to inspire all of those around him.
I have also had the opportunity to work with him over the past few years. I have seen him first hand deal with many issues regarding personalities, money, and general problem solving. This is how I know that John is truly a man of the highest character and has always handled each issue with honor and grace. He is truly one in a million and I have been blessed to meet such an individual.
