Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $100K in Irmo, SC.
John Bolos is not your run of the mill listing agent. From day 1, he was attentive to our needs . Since we lived out of state, John not only successfully listed AND sold our home, but he also maintained the property for several months, organized repairs and lawn care, and kept an accurate record of expenses. John also updated us on a regular basis and stayed with us until the transaction closed and funded. I would recommend John Bolos to anyone looking to list their home .

Bought a home in 2013.
I contacted John prior to moving to the area and he responded to my email within an hour. He told me all about the new contruction offers in the SC area and gave me information to review prior to arriving to Columbia. Once we arrived, we had an appointment within the first week and found the house we bought in one day! John definitely made the buying process very easy, easier than trying to get a cell phone contract. He knows all of the Columbia area and pointed out so many things that we never thought about. He even helped us go through both home inspections and the signing process. So glad we found him! I hope there is someone like him in every city we move to.

Bought a home in 2013.
John Bolos came highly recommended to us from a member of the military community. We had a short period to find and purchase a home. John made the house hunting experience very painless and practical than we could have imagined. He did most of the leg work for us and found us a new home within our budget. He is one of the most knowledgeable realtors we have come across. He knew the right people to expedite the process. He is very professional and dedication to his job. He always found the answers to our questions and concerns and ready to go the extra mile in order to attain the best possible result for us. He was quick to resolve problems that cropped up during our negotiations, walk -through and at closing. Even after the purchase, he followed up to ensure we settled in quite well.

Much thanks to John for is excellent service!!!!

We were really impressed with John's expertise about the Columbia and Lake Murray areas. We feel very fortunate to have found him and I would highly recommend him to others looking in the greater Columbia area.

Bought a home in 2013.
I met John Bolos through Zillow, and I decided to stick with him quickly. I was a first-time buyer with little knowledge of the housing market and the home-buying process. John clearly explained all steps to the process along the way, defined terms and concepts for me, and informed me about important strategies to implement during the process. While I was looking for properties to buy, John took the time to get to know me and recommended first and foremost the locations that suited my specific life situation. I ended up with a home that was far nicer than I had originally envisioned for over seven thousand dollars less than I was willing to borrow originally.

John’s greatest quality is his persistence. He makes sure all people involved (sellers, lenders, inspectors, insurance agents, etc.) are kept updated on the status of the home purchase and that they also keep his clients updated on where they stand. When I was overly eager to just finish the deal so I could close on the house, John insisted that we wait and push the seller on making proper renovations to the underside of the house. Doing so saved me several thousand dollars in future repairs and preserved the value of the home. John has the experience necessary to ask the right questions and make the right calls. He already had a rapport with the listing agent for my home, which speaks to his solid connections around Columbia and the outlying communities. He’s a dependable and hardworking agent who will represent a buyer’s interests faithfully.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Columbia, SC.
I have completed my first home purchase last week. I couldn't have been happier with the home and it's in large part due to John Bolos, my realtor. He was patience through out the whole process, made recommendations when he feels I was out of my depth and let me make my own decisions about what kind of home I wanted. His knowledge of the local area was extremely helpful in my decision making process as to where I want to live. I am an Active Army soldier, new to town so I didn't where is a good area to put roots down with regarding to schools and shopping area. I told John what I was looking for in a home and what type of commute I was willing to take to work and he did the rest. He is always ready to call back ASAP sometimes within minutes of me leaving him an email or message. I would recommend his service to anyone looking to take the stress away from buying a home.

John Bolos is truly the best! He has nothing but the client’s interests in mind. John is knowledgeable, experienced, and communicative and works within the parameters you give to him. He went out of his way more then he needed to accommodate me thought the whole process. I was in a Military school that was very time consuming while looking for a home, but John was there to answer/return my phone calls and emails day and night no matter the time. I always heard from family and friends that buying a house was a painful experience, but John made it a great and pleasurable one for me. I told him what we were looking for and he found the perfect house for my family and I on the first day of meeting with him. He did all the leg work and set me up with all the right people to get the loan process and contract started. Once I completed my school I had to leave the area but John made sure that everything was getting done and did all that was necessary so my family and I had a house to move into when the military moved me back. I cannot think John enough for his services and dedication throughout this process. So if you want a great home buying experience John Bolos is the Real Estate Professional for you, as he was for me.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Columbia, SC.
Met John years ago. He is very friendly and knows what he is doing. We looked at dozen of homes, but found the right one eventually. He was kind and very time friendly so to speak. He took time to show each and every home we looked at. If we were to buy another house, which we will call none other than Mr.Bolos. My entire family thinks he is great at the jobs he does.

John is a great realtor. When we decided to look for a house on Lake Murray in Columbia, South Carolina, my wife Googled realtors. John's name came up as highly recommended and we see why.

When we initially contacted John, he immediately returned all of our e-mails and phone calls.. Before our trip to Lake Murray, John was very helpful in refining our house search list. Once we arrived in South Carolina, John was very punctual, always meetings us on time. He was very knowledgeable of the area and always pointed out areas of concerns or strong points of a certain location.

Once we found our house, John helped us to negotiate what we felt was a very reasonable price.

John is very personable. He is also very honest which is an absolute must for us. Throughout the home buying experience, John immediately responded to all of our calls and e-mails. This is a huge plus as far as we are concerned and was not always the case with our selling agent.

We would strongly recommend John.
