Johnny Carpenter’s deep roots in far west Texas dates back to 1947 when Carpenter Real Estate was opened by his father, Harry W. Carpenter who moved to Alpine in 1944. As Alpine began to grow, he saw the need for a real estate agency and opened Carpenter Real Estate in 1947. In 1965 Mr. Carpenter invited his son, John W. (Johnny) Carpenter, to join him in the business as a salesman, who later became an Associate Broker in 1968. Since that time, Johnny has sold over 70 large ranches totaling over a million acres and countless Alpine and country homes.
There are few ranches within a 100 miles radius of Alpine that Johnny has not been on and his knowledge of the country is almost unequaled. Johnny also built over twenty homes in the Carpenter Addition and other areas.
A graduate from Alpine High School and Sul Ross State University with a Bachelor of Science in Business, he has served as President of the Student Body at Sul Ross State University, President of Alpine Lions Club, President of the Alpine Chamber of Commerce, Board Member of the Brewster Memorial Hospital and many other Chamber & Economic Development Committees.
Johnny Carpenter continues to this day as a Broker of Legacy Broker Group working with his wife, Fay Carpenter, and helps lead the Alpine office team with their great listings. When not working, he is along the shores of Lake Amistad, out on the golf course, and painting on canvases.
