Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Columbia, SC.
John stepped in after a failed attempt with another local realtor and took control of the situation. He understood the needs of our family and kept us informed throughout the process. John delivered on every level and did so almost immediately. There were no repeat phone calls or wasted time, everything was done correctly the first time. Buying and selling a home can quickly become a very stressful situation on the entire family. John and his staff explained every aspect of the process and kept us on track and on time. I have already recommended John and his team to friends and family, and I will continue to do so with confidence. When the time comes for our family to sell our current home we will be using Century 21 & John Bolos and I recommend you do the same!
John Bolos exemplified the highest standards of representation in the sale of my home. He exercised exceptional judgement with ascribing a price that would allow for the sale of my unit as well as understanding my needs and senstivities in my asking price. Always professional and knowledgable, he confirmed this consistently with the sale of both my homes. I would strongly recommend John to my friends and family.

John was THE BEST Real Estate agent I have ever dealt with. His standards are what other agents should strive for. He is fair and honest in his opinions and is not just there to get you into a home as quick as possible to make a commission. His negotiation skills are sharp, and made the process easy. He is there if you have any questions and has a vast understanding of the business to relieve your concerns. His rating is spectacular on Zillow for a reason.
I was disappointed with his inability to narrow down appropriate properties after we answered questions of what we were interested in. It seems like he was wanting us to narrow the houses down on our own. I am not sure what he does to earn such a large fee? Maybe my expectations are off.
He did not have any follow up. I wish I could have continued with his assistant that met with us originally, he seemed interested.
I did not close on a transaction with him, so I cannot speak about his Negotiation skills.

I am sorry to hear that you were unhappy with our services. I do remember working with you via email, although we never met in person.
I normally do not deal in the rental market, but I knew you were out of town and so I offered to send over some listings that may have been appealing, right to your email. This was every rental in the locations and price range you requested.
Also, I did send you 17 homes in the Irmo area for purchase, and the reason why I sent 17 is bc that was the entire list based off your criteria. Having never met you, I didn't know what you truly needed. I never heard back. I am at fault for not following up, yes, but our office had just moved so in the end I did rely on your reply to involve on to the next step.
I truly hope you have found the home of your dreams. I hope next time you will not judge a person by a couple of emails.
Call me anytime, 803.447.5522
John helped me at the time I really needed to sell my property on the North East, he was always helpful and ready to answer any questions, will return calls and reply to emails in a short time frame. I had my property listed with another agent and it didn't move or show as many times as soon as I listed with John, in less than 45 days we had a contract.
John Bolos was professional, understanding and patient with us and helped us find our dream home. He was always available to answer our questions and gave good advice. We were very pleased with his commitment during our search for a new home and highly recommend him and his company!

My husband and I were new to the area and Mr. Bolas was found by my husband on the internet. We were greatly impressed by both his ability and his compassion with what we were dealing with. Both Mr. Bolos and his assistant were amazing in every aspect from finding our forever home to the final day of settlement. We would both recommend Mr. Bolos along with his staff for anyone looking to buy and or sell their property. We are very happy that this is our last purchase but if for some reason it was not we would certainly use him again. Thank you John for everything you did for us.

Angela it was a pleasure working with you and Scott. Thank you for the review, best wishes !
We've worked with many agents over the past several years to sell our lakefront home but none even came close to the level of care, service, expertise or responsiveness that John has shown us. Not only did he sell our home he was our friend through the process and always made sure our needs we're addressed. I can't say enough great things about John. He is the Master of his trade. There are a lot of Real Estate Agents out there who care more about their commission than the clients they service. John is just the opposite. He cares more about his clients and is not only great at what he does but has a passion for helping people. John is one of a kind and we will never work with another Agent except John. John we love you!!!

What a pleasure it was to meet you . I will always be here if you need anything !
John contracted me after I left my information on the website about a home. After talking to me and gaining needed information about what my family and I were looking for and what we needed, he made a couple of recommendations that turned out to be better and cheaper than what we were initially looking for. He also went above and beyond while helping us through the process as we were first time home buyers and we are still currently in Hawaii. Needless to say everything worked out beyond expectations and my family and I will be moving to our new home shortly thanks to his hard work!
