      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.)

      Helped me rent a home.
      He knew the area we were looking in quite well, and gave us great information about the neighborhood while at a showing. John was so kind, respectful, and really let us take our time at the showing. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a new home.

      Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $675K in Valley Glen, Valley Glen, CA.
      We used John first for the purchase and years later for the sale of our home. He was great for both stages; very personable, knowledgable, and on top of his game. It was our first home and John patiently helped us navigate through not only relevant listings to look at but also all the paperwork/procedure that come along with it. Buying your first house can get a bit intimedating but John helped us through the entire process. We couldn't have been happier with the home and the price we paid for it. Highly recommended  MoreLess
