Team reviews

John helped us through our very first home purchase. We brought him on when we knew the area in which we wanted to live, and contacted him every time we went to make an offer. During the negotiation and escrow process, John was remarkably knowledgable and understanding. He also was a fantastic advocate. We've already recommended him to a couple of friends who are first-time home buyers. I can't say enough nice things about him.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $650K in Encino, Encino, CA.

John was a wonderful agent. He was very responsive, understanding, and patient. Further, he always had our best interests at heart. My husband and I were so pleased that we plan to recommend him to all our friends and family members.

Bought a home in 2014 in North Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA 91601.

John moved quickly and was responsive. Which is great in this market. Would recommend him to other friends and family.

We found the majority of the homes on redfin and then forwarded to him to arrange a viewing. Most were open houses.
