Ratings & Reviews

My spouse and I had the pleasure working with John on the purchase of a property in Woodstock. The matter was delicate, with him representing both sides, and an estate involved.<br/><br/>John was outstanding in every regard. He provided excellent advice, demonstrated a deep knowledge of the area, and was resourceful in connecting us up with the key people in the follow up phases of the purchase. <br/><br/>I rate this as one my best ever real estate experiences.

Sold a home in 2014.

John was very helpful in helping us sell our house. He gave good advice on what we could do to make our property more appealing to potential homeowners. He has a great personality and is easy to talk to. My family appreciates the help he gave us.

Sold a home in 2014.

I have known John a long time and he has helped me out 3 times now. He is a good person and a good realtor. He sold two pieces of land for me and also my house just a week ago. I appreciated his problem solving skills when I needed to sell some land. I would recommend him highly.
