Bought a home in 2014.

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.

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!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $2.3M in Mid Wilshire, Los Angeles, CA.

John provided exemplary service to my wife and I throughout a complicated contingency deal. He is kind, patient, tireless and attentive. He has a very good legal mind and is able to translate the reams of paperwork into language I can understand. Simply the best.

Sold a home in 2014.

Our experience working with John was extraordinary. He went "above and beyond" in our every interaction. He helped us with the sale of our home and the purchase of a new condo. His experience as a lawyer and his thoughtful deliberations on even the smallest concern were invaluable. We would recommend him highly to anyone purchasing or selling a home.

Sold a home in 2014.

John was great to work with, always accessible, pleasant, and patient. He worked very hard on our behalf and did everything possible to enhance our property. He has sold two properties for our family and would certainly like to work with him again.

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.
