"“Having owned a home before in the Bay area, and searching for one in SF/Oakland for the last two years, I’ve worked with many real estate brokers and strongly feel most offer absolutely zero value for money and are simply out to make a fast buck at your expense.
John stands out as a complete exception. He knew the market, and once we found a property, took time to appreciate our assessment and point of view, gave us realistic guidance, and then actively negotiated on our behalf from that vantage point to get us the best deal possible. He never tried to talk us out of our position, or simply go through the motions of putting an offer in without any legs…from the get-go, he was involved 100% and we truly felt he was on OUR side.
During the close process also, he was extremely pro-active in recommending what we research and personally accompanied us in reviewing permits etc. And even after we closed and moved in, he remained fully committed to making sure we were satisfied and happy with our purchase. In addition, he was highly personable, warm, and focused on excellent service. At no point did we feel this was simply another transaction for him to get in and out of quickly.
In short, money very well spent, and a pleasure having him on our side in this process. I’m already recommending him to those interested in looking for a place in SF.”"
