"Your Life is Changing. I Can Help!"(R)  Whether serving as a buyer''''s or seller''''s agent (listing agent), I strive for every client to make informed decisions about their real estate situation since it''''s their money, their home, and their life. Customer service is key, whether you''''re a first-timer or seasoned hand. With over 50% of my business coming from client referrals and repeat clients, my approach is effective in helping clients achieve their goals.

Note that sometimes it''''s not so clear on the Zillow.com site whether I am the listing agent for a particular home, or simply an agent with experience in that experience.  Please make sure you double check so that your expectations are correct to the situation.

Also note that sometimes the listing status of properties on Zillow.com is not accurate as either the database hasn''''t been updated from the MLS or the listing agent hasn''''t updated their listing manually.  This is why sometimes I am in the unenviable position of having to tell buyers who contact me off Zillow.com that the property they want to see is no longer available.

Finally, please recognize that Zestimates are usually very broad estimates of value arrived at by a formulaic calculation.  They often have little if any relation to the actual market value of a property.  Properties vary widely in size, location, and condition even if they have the same number of bedrooms and bathrooms.  If you look closely, you''''ll see Zillow.com has such a disclosure on their website.

If you think we might work well together in the purchase or sale of a home in northern Virginia or Washington, D.C., please contact me.

Ratings & Reviews

I worked with John for almost a year until I finally found the home I was looking for in Fairfax, VA. Over that time John showed me a wide variety of homes without any of the 'buy-now' pressure of other agents. In fact, he would bring negative aspects of the property to my attention that I missed. This is highly unusual, but delightfully refreshing, for someone working on commission. John also took special care to walk me through and explain to me ALL of the paperwork in the offer / buying processes (none of that just sign here and don’t worry about the details nonsense other agents try). This was especially helpful since I was a first-time homebuyer and a bit overwhelmed by the process. John made the process as easy as possible and I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a realtor.

Bought a home in 2006.

I was very impressed with the level of professionalism, care, and expertise that John Mentis showed in helping us purchase our first home. Not only were we able to find a great apartment (with John's vital help), but we made a new friend in John. The level of care that John showed is second to none. In light of this, I strongly recommend John to anyone who wishes to purchase, or sell, a property.  More Less

Bought a Condo home in 2006 for approximately $300K in Arlington Ridge, Arlington, VA.

John was our agent in purchasing a 1 bedroom in Pentagon City, Arlington a few years ago. John is amazing! He's not your average real estate agent -- in addition to being incredibly knowledgeable about the market, available properties and features, John is incredibly caring, compassionate and patient. We were first time home buyers and knew absolutely nothing about the home buying process. John took his time to walk us through every step of the process and answered every one of our questions, not matter how silly they were. He truly had our best interests in mind and took care of us as if we were long-time friends. He saw dozens of apartments with us and was instrumental in helping us make our decision. His attention is detail is incredible also - he would walk us through each apartment and point our all the details and explain their relevance and affect on the price. We are extremely happy with our home and could not have done it without John! Highly highly recommend him - you will not find a better agent!  More Less
