I was a first-time home buyer and John was an amazing agent. We must have looked at 70 different properties and he was very patient. He is always upbeat and he literally knows people everywhere he goes. When looking at the homes, he helped me see the potential that I didn't see because of my inexperience. He has a great grasp on how simple fixes can really change a house and he always had a name handy of someone trustworthy that he had worked with in the past who does that kind of work. He helped me negotiate special privileges to do some painting and minor improvements before closing. I knew nothing about home buying. He was always helpful and never pushy. He knows the boundary to walk as an agent to help but not influence. He was very responsive to communication. He answered every email and call in a timely manner. All in all I think it took me right at a year start to finish to buy a home. He exceeded my expectations of patience by far. During my 12 month home search, he had a family trip scheduled. In his absence, he had a colleague meet with me to continue the home search and she was ever bit as good as he is. He surrounds himself with others who are highly competent and qualified. As you can tell, I was very satisfied with my first home purchase. We found a house that was exactly what I needed and at a great price. Thank you, John!
