Team reviews

John handled the sale of my home in a desirable area of West Hollywood. He was referred to me neighbors who also recently used him to sell their property. My home showed strongly and within a week of listing had multiple offers. It sold on strong terms with a smooth escrow. John is a pro who provides seasoned advice. He is also open-minded and listens to alternative approaches. He is a strong negotiatior. He is trustworthy as is his team. He treats everyone with respect, including buyers and their agents, which makes for a clear and effective line of communication. I would use John again in another real estate transaction and highly recommend him.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.325M in Mid City, Los Angeles, CA.

John is an absolutely stellar agent. His knowledge of the market and attention to detail are top notch. We were selling our home while living in a different city and he seamlessly arranged hundreds of moving parts to get it ready for sale. He saw the potential in our house that other agents we interviewed did not, and then he made it happen. Every aspect of dealing with John was an A+ - I couldn't possibly give him a higher recommendation.  More Less
