Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $350K in Marblehead, MA.
My wife and I were two recently retired New Yorkers looking for a home in New England. We knew we were way out of our comfort zone with the local real estate markets and early on sought to find the right person that could show us the way and represent us on the negotiations. On a visit to Newburyport back in October, we arranged to meet with John Wells hoping he might be the right agent for our search. His office is on a marina at the water's edge and over a coffee roasters shop where we introduced ourselves over some really good coffee. We liked his easy approach and expert knowledge of old homes and commenced our partnership. It was not easy as we had to first sell our apartment in New York while our search went on in various towns along the coastline We almost decided on an old house in Salem but in the end found a beautiful antique house in Marblehead that was perfect for us. John patiently steered us through the process and pointed out the pros and cons of each location. He watched our backs and questioned an easement issue that would have gone unnoticed had he not been on the ball. We are very happy to have worked with John on this important phase of our lives and highly recommend him to folks looking for the right home.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $450K in Newburyport, MA.
With John Wells expert help and guidance, I now own a lovely Condo in Newburyport. He arranged for the house inspection, found me an excellent attorney, and made the necessary paper work and closing go forward in a very clear and orderly way. In any future real estate undertakings I will most certainly call upon him for assistance. Thank you John !!

Bought a Condo home in 2011 in Newburyport, MA.
John was a true professional in every sense of the word. He facilitated the entire search process for me and bent backwards to accommodate my schedule and buying timeframe. He listened to what I was looking for and delivered. I felt he was genuinely and honestly looking out for my interests from the time of our first meeting and well after the closing. When my bank turned down my application for a mortgage at the last minute due to concerns with the condo, John quickly connected me with an outstanding loan officer who got me the loan and closed in a matter of weeks. I can call him at any time and know he'll get back with me ASAP. I know I'll be reaching out to him when I'm ready to sell.

Sold a home in 2012.
This was my wife and I's first attempt at buying a house and John was recommended to us. He was the only real estate agent that we worked with in this process and we couldn't recommend him more. He was very responsive and has keen negotiating skills. He recommended many houses to us that were within our budget and roughly what we wanted. He was very honest about his opinion without forcing anything down our throats. I don't like to be sold things. I appreciate sincere honesty and we couldn't have been happier. We highly recommend John Wells.

Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $250K in Amesbury, MA.
Friendly, straight forward, knowledgeable, businesslike and thorough. John was exceptional. If he didn't know the answer to something he'd say,"I'll find out right now and I'll call you back". And he did!

He always had time to discuss things and you felt you were getting "special" treatment. That's the way he is. No pressure, just honesty and helpful input.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $250K in Amesbury, MA.
This was the third house we have purchased so we had some experience with the process. Neverless, we learned much more purchasing this home than we expected to. As we were from out of state and there were many issues with the property and seller to deal with, we were fortunate to have John and his network of professionals with their resourcefull responsiveness to get us through to closing.

John is not only knowlegable, but also a person of honesty and integrity.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $375K in Newburyport, MA.
From the start, John showed his excitement and passion for helping others find what they would call home. He is extremely knowledgable about not only the different areas but the different types of homes we went to look at. As first time homebuyers, we needed someone on our side every step of the way and John was definitely there to do that. We were somewhat familiar with the tourist sections of Newburyport but John helped us to get to know and love Newburyport in a whole different way. John was professional and always responded very quickly with all of the information needed. He has a great network in Newburyport which helped the process go very smoothly from start to finish. Although I don't plan to move anytime soon, I would love to work with John again.

Bought a home in 2012.
We were extremely fortunate to meet John and to retain him as our buyer's agent. John was knowledgeable of the local market and showed us multiple properties within our price range and specifications. Although we eventually located the home we purchased on our own, it is unlikely that we would have been as successful in navigating the negotiation, inspection, financing and closing process without John. He referred excellent resources, including a closing attorney, mortgage financing company and inspector. After our purchase, he even referred an excellent contractor and pre-move cleaning company. We would highly recommend John as either a listing or buyer's agent. It was an absolute pleasure to work with him.
