This is the third house we've sold and John is the best of the best. Johns marketing plan was extensive, rapidly set in motion and effective. I especially appreciate the way John talked and listened to us. He really listened and worked with us (I travel weekly). John showed us how to set the house for pictures and the results were astonishing. The photos and 3D walk through really captured the value of the house. John also managed an open house with virtually no requirement from our end. In the end we had an offer in 48hrs that was much higher than our asking price (which we jumped on). John also stayed the course and hand walked us through the closing with every form sent by email for signature (due to my travel). Top notch job and results. You will not regret having John as your realtor! John is the best.
John is a great realtor, the first house he showed us we bought! John is very professional, attentive to detail and very easy to work with. He stayed the course through a very trying and frustrating buying/closing process. John is a straight shooter and extremely honest with us. I can highly recommend him to anyone seeking a truly professional Realtor.
John did a great job as our realtor on our recent Denver home search. With the hyper-competitive market and low inventory levels in the Denver Metro area, we needed someone who was on his game when it came to responsiveness and knowledge of the market, and John was definitely able to deliver. He helped get us into a beautiful 1906 bungalow in Sunnyside. With over a hundred couples touring the property in one day, we were definitely a little out of our element, but John walked us through the whole process and had us under contract two days later. We have now been in our home for about a month, and could not be happier with the decision we made. Thank you, John!
My girlfriend and I are starting the home buying process and John has been a lifesaver in navigating the rapidly changing Denver metro area real estate market. I've worked with a couple real estate agents in several states the last few years since I've had to move around the country a lot for work, and I'd easily rate John as the best.
John has been a huge help in our Denver home search. He keeps us constantly updated with new homes, and is aggressive in making sure we get to see any and all properties we are interested in, as well as thoughtfully suggesting similar options we would never have found on our own. It is a true pleasure to work with John, and I would recommend him to anyone overwhelmed by the house hunting process.
