    Pamela gave John 5 stars out of 5
    John came highly recommended by my neighbor, and I am so glad he wanted to work with me. I bought the house as an investment and it needed everything (electrical, plumbing, duct work, water heater, first-time air conditioning) and I also put on a major addition. John fully grasped the value of the renovated property and carefully calculated the list price on a per square foot basis. His advice to me on some items (what IS the fascination in Tucson with gravel all over the yard?!) but he was right, whereas I was going to let it go despite the curb appeal impact. He made sure I optimized my sale price, and was very tactful in making his suggestions. He managed all the paperwork quickly and accurately, and because the house was so much bigger than the neighborhood comps, he discussed with the appraiser for the buyer why the sales price was warranted. He saved me from a bad appraisal that could have threatened the deal. He is very good at resolving issues he sees - before they become problems. He is a man who wants to help people. My sale set a big old record for the highest ever in the neighborhood! In sum, I would work with him again in a heartbeat, and highly recommend his professional talents! Do not run away from paying a commission to a good Realtor. John knows so much about his market, along with all the code and legal issues that can impact your sale. I absolutely would not have done as well as I did without the expertise of John Sweeden.

    John did an excellent job! We do not live in Tucson. He met us last minute to walk the property. He connected us with a well drilling company. He met with a representative of Tucson Electric on our property to get an estimate on the cost of bringing power into our property. He did all of this on his own without us asking. He always kept us in the loop. Highly recommend John. He went above and beyond!

    Tanya gave John 5 stars out of 5
    We were referred to John through a trusted friend and we were not disappointed. Like many people, 2020 has been a challenging year for us and he was sensitive to our needs and situation. John went above and beyond for us repeatedly and was outstanding in communicating with us every step of they way. He has lived in the area for many years and has built relationships with local vendors and was helpful in directing us to reliable resources. If you are looking for an honest, down to earth realtor who won't be too pushy and will represent your interests, John is the guy for you.

    John helped us through a very stressful sale and purchase. I was a nervous wreck but he was always very responsive to all of our questions and very patient with us. I highly recommend him as an agent both on the buying and selling side!

    Thank you! You and your family were great to work with. I understand the first time around was very stressful and navigating the sale and purchase of a home through a pandemic is difficult. Thank you for the trust you placed in me.
    Laura gave John 5 stars out of 5
    John was so helpful the entire process. He made suggestions when I was unsure and validated my concerns and together we were able to secure the highest offer with no hiccups. He really knows his stuff and is a beautiful human being.

    John should be your first choice real estate agent. He's on top of his work, loyal to his clients, and it's so easy to tell that his main objective is making his clients happy. In addition to John having longtime connections in the community and knowing the area well, he's a crafty thinker who can make things come together using creativity and his fierce loyalty. I highly recommend him!!!

    My Experience

    • Born in Tucson AZ, grew up in Muskogee Okla. Moved back to Tucson for senior year of high school at Cholla High School, 1992. I came home to Tucson with a strong background in fabrication, I ultimately ended up working for Arizona Opera, Don Yunker Design, Design Definitions, Old Tucson Studios, The solar Store and then ultimately starting my own small fabrication business, John Sweeden Design. In my experience matters of the home are matters of the heart. Whether you're buying or selling a home it requires the type of communication the works best with you and understanding. I have experience in all matters "home" I have had my hands on the roof, foundation, electrical and plumbing but most importantly I will know you and together we will get you moving into the future.
