Bought a Condo home in 2011 in Renton, WA.

I worked with John through a very arduous ‘short sale’. Rather than settling and standing by passively, John remained diligent and assertive in communicating with all concerned parties in the effort to keep the process from failing. In addition, throughout the lengthy processing time, John kept resolute with locating other possible housing that came available. Throughout the entire process of locating and purchasing a home, John was an absolute pleasure working and quite trustworthy! I will most definitely work with John again -  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $775K in Redmond, WA.

John helped me with a very complicated short sale process. He handled all the negotiations and countless interactions with the lender. Everything worked out great and I could not have accomplished this without John's expertise and dedication to his work, I am very pleased with the entire process from first meeting through the actual sale.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $750K in Sammamish, WA.

We worked with John for our last home purchase. We found him to be very helpful and knowledgeable. He was willing to take calls during weekends and after-hours. He showed great knowledge of the area. And besides the home, he was also helpful in helping purchase the other related things like insurance, mortgage, etc. In the case of mortgage he has a referral that he had worked with that gave me way better rates than anywhere else. In the case of insurance he helped be evaluate quotes from different companies to see which works best for me. He also had great knowledge of all the legalese involved in the home-buying process - having John by my side gave me a lot of confidence in my first home purchase.  More Less
