Bought a home in 2013 in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York, NY 11211.
My partner and I have worked with various brokers before we met John, and I must say that he had by far the best grasp of a very difficult market that was challenging for more than one reason. I particularly appreciated his understanding of our needs, (and we were quite particular about what we wanted), the market, players in the area etc.
After many months of working with John, my partner and I both knew all too well that the house search was only the beginning, making the right offer in a very dynamic market with rapidly rising prices, dealing with the bank, attorneys, the seller, appraisers, inspectors were yet few other things that have come our way with many challneges.
John was recommended to me and all I can say he met all the expectations I had. John is very honest in his dealings and was on time at every meeting. He kept me up to date in every part of the negotiation process and I felt that he was on my side unlike many others.
Bought a Multi Family home in 2013 in Flatbush, Brooklyn, NY.
John Chetram came onto our radar when we noticed a wide range of homes posted on his personal website. He was extremely quick to respond to our initial emails and so we decided to meet the next day to view some homes. Not only did he have a large inventory, he was able to arrange viewings of homes that were controlled by other brokers in a very timely fashion. John gave expert advice in an honest and tactful manner. Being that we were first time home-buyers, we welcomed his thoughts and trusted his experience. About his character, he is incredibly relatable, calm, patient, and wise. Never once did I get that sneaky or "shady" vibe from him, and never once did I feel he was pushing us towards a deal before we were ready. John went out of his way for us on several occasions: viewings on the weekends, contacting people efficiently, and working within our time constraints of days off and even a holiday weekend, and the biggest was getting a couple of issues resolved with the home long after our closing. He even referred us to the best lawyer I've ever encountered (Joan Soares). Our experience with John Chetram was top-notch; he went above and beyond what I expected a broker to do. We have recommended friends to him, and now we highly recommend him to the general public.
Bought a Multi Family home in 2013 for approximately $525K in Bushwick, Brooklyn, NY.
In an industry full of wolves and sharks, John was god sent. He made sure the house we were purchasing was within our budget and delivered in move in condition. He was our advocate in the purchase and through the loan process, and we will be using him to help us find tenants.
Bought a home in 2011 in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, New York, NY 11233.
John was to great to work with not only because of his vast and bottomless knowledge of local real estate and real estate in general but his willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty. He was always accessible and he answered any questions I had. If you're just starting out in real estate and making your first purchase or if you're a seasoned pro who has multiple deals under your belt, John is the guy you want on your team because he gets it done - period. I am really grateful that I met John because he helped me get a great house for a fantastic deal.
