Team reviews

John handled the sale of my home in a desirable area of West Hollywood. He was referred to me neighbors who also recently used him to sell their property. My home showed strongly and within a week of listing had multiple offers. It sold on strong terms with a smooth escrow. John is a pro who provides seasoned advice. He is also open-minded and listens to alternative approaches. He is a strong negotiatior. He is trustworthy as is his team. He treats everyone with respect, including buyers and their agents, which makes for a clear and effective line of communication. I would use John again in another real estate transaction and highly recommend him.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.325M in Mid City, Los Angeles, CA.

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.

Sold a home in 2015 in Newport Beach, CA 92660.

John and his team, Katharine Deering made what could have been a very long and difficult process VERY easy! Their knowledge and experience coupled with their resources and work ethics were instrumental to me. Not only were we selling my home, but we had to do upgrades and they provided a fully staffed professional team! They handled everything and were available 24/7 if I had any questions. I’d recommend these two in a heartbeat and they will definitely be my realtors for life. Thank you KOSTREY COLLECTION!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in Cahuenga Pass, Los Angeles, CA.

I would highly recommend John Kostrey as a buyer's agent. John helped my wife Fran and I purchase our first home recently. He was incredibly patient with us and we always felt that we had his full attention. John's knowledge of his field, the LA market, and his legal background were all benefits to us throughout a process that at times can be generally frustrating. John was honest and led us through negotiations with our best interests at heart. Throughout the experience working with John (6 months) we came to really like John as a person and think fondly of him. If/when we begin looking for our second house, John will be our first call.

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.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $975K in Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA.

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.
