John was very patient and very knowledgeable! I have already recommended him to a friend and would definitely recommend him to more! He really knows what he is doing and as long as you are open and honest with him about what you want, he works very hard to make sure that you find the home that is perfect for you!
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Newburyport, MA.
John was outstanding to work with! He listened to our needs carefully. He provided his opinion when asked and guidance when he perceived it was needed. He was very active in showing the house and quite often performed tasks at the house to show it in its best light. He was a firm, tenacious and respectful negotiator. John was very responsive to my questions and concerns and made the selling process much much easier than I anticipated. I would recommend him to others without hesitation!
My husband and I would highly recommend John. We could not have gotten through the process of buying a home in this area without him. We are from another state and had no clue as to Massachusetts real estate, particularly the Newburyport and Amesbury areas. He responded to our many inquiries immediately and with patience. He seemed to always be available! There was never any pressure on his part to push his own agenda. His vast knowledge of the region was helpful & very interesting. He listened carefully to us and got a real sense of what we were looking for. Each professional (lender, inspector, attorney, etc.) he referred us to was equally impressive and easy to work with. He went out of his way to facilitate everything we needed. This made the entire experience as easy as it can be, especially living out of town. We would call on John again for all our real estate needs.
John responded in an expedient manner to our interest in purchasing a loft in Amesbury. He was able to coordinate the 3 viewings into one appointment. John guided us through the financing process working with his awesome team! Thank you,John, for helping us ease into a lovely setting here in Amesbury.....
Very happy with the way I have been treated, have never felt harassed or pressured, and have always received the information I need when asked and promptly.

This house was in a beautiful spot but a tough sell, 3 other realtors tried to sell it before me without success. We took care of some important issues, updated incorrect records with the Town and got 95% of his original asking price.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Groveland, MA.
John was very responsive and always willing to go the extra mile! He was professional and readily available to answer questions and to arrange appointments quickly.
I have purchased several homes and believe that John was supportive and helpful throughout the process.
If you need someone with knowledge and experience on the North Shore contact John. His familiarity with local resources, building codes and regulations in particular towns, helped keep the process moving.
Helped me rent a Multi Family home in Newburyport, MA.
John was delightful to work with and made our transition to our new home very easy.
He is very detail oriented, personable, caring and will go the extra mile for you. I am renting from his client and he was just so helpful, available and responsive. I would highly recommend using John for any real estate needs.
I've been based overseas for quite a while and wanted to buy an investment property in the area where I grew up. Fortunately I came into contact with John, as I had to rely on someone local to be able to complete a deal. I came over once to look at area properties and he was well prepared, making the visit as productive as possible in the short time available. He then assisted in lining up a good attorney and jumped in to smooth some last minute hitches in the process. He even helped in finding a good tenant, which went well beyond what was required of him.
He's professional and knows his trade, which is all anyone could ask. I'd recommend him highly.

Jim's trust in me was gratifying. He had me select and purchase a property for him sight unseen. Thank you Jim!

My husband and I work with John for th e purchase of new home and he was truly amazing. We went through some rough spots during the process, but John would always pull us out of them and keep us moving forward. We are now in our new home and very happy.
