Johnny Rivera

Born in Hartford, Connecticut, Johnny was raised in New York City and the Tri-State area after his parents moved from Puerto Rico to the United States. Since he was a teenager, Johnny dreamed of traveling the world, and this passion motivated him to enlist in the United States
Marine Corps. Throughout his years of service, Johnny lived in Japan and also participated in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan. While in the Marine Corps, Johnny also traveled around the world providing humanitarian assistance to people from many different countries. He obtained his Bachelor of Science in Business with a concentration in Management from the University of Phoenix while working as a contractor with the United States Embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan. During his eight years working at the U.S. Embassy in Kabul, Johnny was the Telecommunication Officer for the largest World Protective Services contract in the U.S. Department of State. While working abroad has given Johnny the experience of building friendships with diverse groups of people and cultures, he made his way
back to the States to be closer to family. Johnny, his wife, and two children, recently relocated to Hawaii from California in 2020 to experience a new adventure and grow up in the culture and traditions of the aloha spirit. Johnny and his wife have been homeschooling their children since 2017. As a child, Johnny’s parents never owned a home, but he quickly learned the importance of home ownership as he grew up. This passion grew into a career as Johnny has always wanted to help families of all backgrounds meet their dreams of being a homeowner. He strives to educate others on reaching their goals, starting from the process of buying a home for the first time, to working with seasoned home buyers. Johnny joined the RE/MAX ALOHA HOMES family in Hawaii because their mission aligns with his values of honesty, integrity, and taking care of clients and members of the community. Feel free to connect with him anytime, and he looks forward to working with you.
