Bought a home in 2014.
Our home buying experience was wonderful, thanks to John's patience, deep knowledge of the real estate market and his negotiation skills. We were first time home buyers, and we truly appreciated John's hard work in getting us up to speed on the intricacies of NYC's real estate market. He was patient, made an effort to understand our needs, never rushed us, but most of all he was honest, and hard working.

John's honesty combined with his sense of humor take the stress out of what can otherwise be an overwhelming process at times. Wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking to buy in NYC.

John has been an absolute blessing to me when it comes to the Real Estate market. His loyalty and reliability is the hallmark of his character, which is perfectly complimented with honesty, integrity, and a sincere dedication to me. John has the unique ability to be personally invested in my dreams and goals, and is relentlessly committed to complete the tasks that are set before him. I’ve have worked with dozens of Real Estate Professionals over the last 11 years. Undoubtedly, John truly has been the best.

Helped me rent a Multi Family home in Turtle Bay, New York, NY.
John was referred to me by my colleague. I had to move very quickly from Seattle and he helped me find the right place... FAST! He helped me find a studio apartment in Manhattan that was perfect for what I was looking for! He patiently guided me through the process of searching for a home in NYC. John was very well-prepared when I arrived for one day to look at apartments. In under 2 hours, we found the right place for me to call home! I highly recommend him to anybody looking for a knowledgeable agent who will keep your best interest in mind.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $600K in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, NY.
When I decided to purchase my own place last year I contacted John. John called me back the next day after I emailed him. He explained and walked me through the whole process very patiently. Fast forward to a few months later when I was in the process of closing John was again very patiently helped me out with the procedures. It was time consuming and difficult and I am sure without John's help I would not be able to complete the purchase. If my friends ever need a broker, I will definitely refer John to them.

Bought a home in 2014.
We worked with John to purchase a coop in Manhattan long distance. The process takes months, and John was with us for every part of it. We knew little about the NYC real estate market or the coop process. We further complicated matters by not being in the country (let alone NYC) for much of the process.

John was extremely helpful. He found a solid set of coops for us to visit over a weekend. We saw almost a dozen places in two days. When we found places we liked, he helped with putting in offers. We had our 2nd offer accepted, which is an accomplishment in the current market.

He put us in contact with a great lawyer and mortgage broker. They were both terrific and had clearly worked with John and Spire before. They made the complicated process of getting a coop in NYC much smoother.

John helped with the coop application, the interview, and all the closing details. We weren't working with the easiest building management, and John helped move the ball along when it would stall. He gets a LOT of credit for us closing in time. He even paid for my air plane tickets back to NYC when the first closing fell through and we had to regroup and close on very short notice.

John and Spire went beyond what we expected and I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy property in New York.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 in Upper East Side, New York, NY.
As an international investor, I was weary of trying to navigate the fast-paced NYC real estate market on my own. John and I started working together nearly a year ago and after several international trips back and forth, he helped me land an fantastic investment property. I couldn't be happier with his professionalism, courtesy, knowledge of the market and tenacity to continue searching high and low until we found the most profitable investment available. His knowledge of the process, his preparation and attention to detail were very impressive.

He asked all the right questions, negotiated an excellent price and is now leading the renovation effort. Once that is done, I have no doubt he will find a fantastic tenant for me as well. For an investor like myself, he provided A-Z solutions for the purchase, renovation, and rental. You can't ask for more, and John delivered above and beyond expectations.

It is with sincere pleasure that I recommend him to anyone looking for an Agent.

Bought a Cooperative home in 2013 in Upper East Side, New York, NY.
John Jourden was unbelievable throughout the entire process. He is a trustworthy broker who can be relied upon in every instance. My girlfriend and I just recently purchased an apartment on the Upper East side and we could see from the moment we met him that he could be counted on. You never had to worry about missed emails or calls because he was on top of it all. The coordination with lawyers, brokers, agents, etc. was uncanny. He was very knowledgable about the area and steered us in the right direction, while always putting our interests first. At the end of the day he got the right apartment for us, which was very important. The best part about John is how easy he is to work with. We developed a great relationship with him over the last three months with open communication at all times. I would highly recommend John Jourden as your next real estate broker. You will not regret it.
