John Vella

John grew up in New York and Massachusetts where he attended Springfield College, earning his degree in English Literature.  Upon graduation, John spent time with the New England Patriots which led to coaching football at Boston University.  Following his coaching career, John entered the financial services sector.  In 1990, John relocated to San Diego where he currently serves as the CRO for Altisource Portfolio Solutions offering products and technology to major banks and financial institutions. 

Living in Brentwood with his lovely new bride, Samantha, the newlyweds decided to search for a second home. They looked at several prospects in the Palm Springs but it was the first showing in Vista Las Palmas that made the biggest and best impression. 

John and Samantha frequently travel to the desert with Samantha’s twins and spend time with John’s 93-year old Aunt Ida who lives in Palm Desert.  John has two boys who live in Carlsbad.  During free time, he and Samantha enjoy their dogs, Jimmy the Cheese and Bailey, cooking great Italian meals and working out. 

Being new to the neighborhood, John and family are looking forward to meeting everyone and working with the neighbors in making the community even more delightful.
