Team reviews

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.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $975K in Mid City, Los Angeles, CA.

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 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.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $375K in Crescenta Highlands, Glendale, CA.

John is absolutely amazing to work with. He is patient and persistent and he really knows his stuff. He's very thorough with everything decision. My husband and I had been looking over a year for a new home and John was always ready and able to visit homes almost every weekend till we found exactly what we wanted. It's been a little over 2 years + 2 additions to the family since then but, we are still very happy with our home and feel it was the best investment we've made.

John made everything easy for us, and selling a home is by no means EASY! He was professional, insightful, and managed our expectations, and he delivered beyond expectations.

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!
