Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Whittier, CA.
I, probably like some of you, picked John off this site based on his reviews - I was not let down. I had minimal money to spend and minimal cash to put down. John never flinched. His wife, Maureen and I communicated about the properties I liked and when we found one, John swooped in and wrote an offer that was accepted without hesitation. Two months from the day I started looking I owned a my own condo. Honestly, I have heard horror stories about buying a home, but this was easier than buying a pair of shoes, however, I am positive if I hadn't found John and Maureen I would still be looking. They are experienced, professional, personable, honest, ethical...I can go on and on. After I bought my condo my friend decided to sell his home. I referred him to John. His house was not turn-key by any means...AND to top it off he needed to sell quickly so he could move to another home - I honestly never thought it would happen (for the price he was asking) but John and Maureen sold his home within a month for above his asking price!! If you are buying OR selling and you don't want to be in the middle of your own horror story - go with the Kohauts! The are a SOLID amazing team!!
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $475K in Fullerton, CA.
John was amazing at negotiating and every process of buying and selling. My husband and I had been trying to sell and buy with no luck. We couldnt get any offers accepted and the offers on our home were demanding to say the least. We were ready to give up on our dream home. We decided to change realtors and first team suggested john. Within 2 weeks he had our house sold and we won a bid on our dream home and we were not even the highest offer. John was patient and calm through the entire process and expedited the escrow process with ease. Even after we had our home he still would call us to make sure all problems were taken care of. Him and his wife are geniune people and we are so grateful for them. I would recommend john to anyone because in this market you need someone who has contacts and can negotiate but at the same time is caring and honest! I don't think we could have found anyone better at their jobs then john and maureen!
John and Maureen helped me go through all the process to buy a house in my favorite area. They are detailed oriented and very honest. I did not feel any push during the purchase process. John's advice is pertinent and you should always consult with him before you pay any fees, as there are so many scams around!

John and his team were extremely wonderful to work with. He was very patient with us, since it had been while since we'd purchased a home. He also assisted in the sale of our current home, and was able to handle both transactions with ease. He really helped to keep us focused and positive, even though at times, we were frustruated trying to locate a new home to purchase. Both John and his partner Maureen were great to work with and I highly recommend them to anyone looking to purchase, sell or purchase and sell a home at the same time.
Its nice to work with professionals who take their job seriously and who care about their clients, not just the commission check.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $475K in Buena Park, CA.
We were so lucky to have worked with the Kohauts (John, Maureen, and John Jr) in finding our new home. We would highly recommend them to everyone.
We are first time buyers and were guided the whole way through this long process (about 8 months) with such care and professionalism.
We were newbies in this but they never made us feel this way.
John and Maureen understood the importance of getting us the home that is perfect for us and followed up on all angles possible to ensure that we would be able to attain our dream. They made the process seem like a piece of cake. They kept us informed, educated us on the process, and continued to follow up with us. We can't thank them enough.
John and Maureen are all about integrity and excellence. Great attention to detail, patience and on top of all this, they are such kind souls. I really can't imagine getting any better service than this.

My boyfriend and I purchased our first home this summer with the help of the entire Kohaut team including John. They were beyond wonderful to work with and I am so greatful we found them on a whim (I ran into Maureen while out looking at neighborhoods). They make you feel like you are family and that they truely have your best interests at heart. When they felt as though they were not conecting with us or that they may not be meeting our needs they would always schedule a sit down so we could get on the same page. I would highly recommend John Kohaut and the Kohaut group to help you find your next home!

John is the most thorough agent I have ever dealt with and I have had 6 real estate transactions. He is always on top of every process, from staying on top of the lender all the way to pushing everything through escrow in a timely manner. My last purchase was closed in 20 days, and that was through the Christmas holidays. I believe only John would have got this done. On my last sale we had 3 offers over asking. I recommend John to all my friends because I know he will not let me or any of his clients down.

Working with John Kohaut took the work and worry out of searching for my new home. He knew what I was looking, what I could afford. He worked diligently searching for just what I was looking for. I am very happy with my new home and I feel like it was meant to be mine.
Thank you John for not giving up on me. We worked during the holidays and I know this is a bad time, however, it turned out to be "perfect timing".
I think everyone knows a "Realtor", but not everyone knows someone who will pay attention to ALL details necessary for a smooth transaction(s) and negotiate the best contract. I recommend John to anyone whether they are listing their home or selling.
