John is an incredible realtor who has a strong connection to the community. He has helped my family and me with our variety of needs as newcomers arriving in town in 2008. Since then he has: 1) helped us find/buy a lot and rental property while building (with a great builder he recommended, Derek Daniels); 2) been patient enough to show us about 45 homes in a few days with our 2-year-old girl and little dog tagging along, when we realized we were not in a position to build; 3) was absolutely perfect in proceedings for purchasing a home ; 4) accommodated us again 6 years later with parents moving to town, looking at numerous houses; 5) without finding the proper home, he assisted in finding yet a another lot to build and also replat; 6) served us with advice for house repairs, designers, inspectors, etc., in every way imaginable. His wife Pat is fantastic too! I recommend John to all of our friends and incoming colleagues at A-State. We are so fortunate that one of my colleagues recommended him to us. There just isn't a better realtor!
