      Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $200K in Crenshaw, Los Angeles, CA.
      Of all the realtors we've met, John was the most down-to-earth and honest. As first time home buyers, he made sure we understood all the steps of the process. He helped us wade through the short sale process which is a treacherous journey for everyone involved, and in the end he found us a great home. I would not hesitate to work with John again and would recommend him for any/all real estate transactions we have in the future. Also, John has a great network of contractors, lenders and other specialists. He recommended a mortgage broker and a general contractor to us, both of which were great finds and we intend to work with them in the future as well.

      (Side note: John strives to be as paperless as possible. It's a small detail but it allowed us to work faster when forms needed signing, and I think it's a better/more efficient way of working.)

      Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA.
      John was an outstanding Realtor for us in the sale of our home. John represented us well, was professional in all of his dealings and was very knowledgeable in all aspects of the sale.

      I would highly recommend John to anybody looking for a very smooth real estate transaction.

      Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $450K in Glassell Park, Los Angeles, CA.
      Primary point of contact: Sarah McMaster
      Sarah and John were an awesome team to help us buy our first home! Sarah tirelessly met us at countless properties all over Los Angeles, from Westchester to Highland Park, until we found our perfect nest in the up and coming neighborhood of Glassell Park. Her inspection referrals and advice were top notch, which ended up helping us negotiate the price down before closing. John's referrals to contractors for renovations were diverse and thorough. He even connected us to a previous client, with a similar backyard to ours, to view the work of a contractor we wanted to work with. We were so impressed, we hired that contractor based on his craftsmanship. Sarah has a ton of experience renovating her own home, and she has been a great resource every step of the way. I was also very impressed how John stayed on top of our lender in the 11th hour to make sure everything went through in a timely manner without any unnecessary hold ups. As first time home buyers, my husband and I could not be happier with the expertise and service we have received from The Kostrey Collection!  MoreLess
