Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $900K in Morristown, NJ.

John Haydu is an excellent realtor and a great person. He goes above and beyond for his clients. He made the process of buying our home very easy by handling all aspects of it seamlessly. He never pushed us into buying, was honest and patient and really listened to what we were looking for. John is very hands on. He will go out of his way to get done whatever needs to be done and is always present. I highly recommend him as agent. He knows so much about all aspects of the buying process, he is so helpful and reliable.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Greenville, Jersey City, NJ.

I worked with John Haydu previously as a buyer in Morris County and now as a seller in Hudson County. In both cases I was extremely pleased with his knowledge and expertise. He sat down with me and together we reviewed the comparable properties to determine the best price at which the property would sell in a timely manner and not linger on the market. In this case we were in contract within nineteen days and the property sold in around three months at a price which met our expectations. This is very impressive considering it was holiday season from November to January. John is wholeheartedly committed to the client he represents whether it is the buyer or the seller. He insists on keeping his clients informed where they are in the process such as when the photographer is scheduled and when the listings will be available online and on what sites. In our case the property was listed on three MSL sites which is more than the norm. John was most responsive and answerd my calls day and night, including weekends, with his characteristic upbeat greeting "How Are you?" He went above and beyond in performing tasks that might have been required of the other realtor or even the client. He was present at the removal of an oil tank and removed large items from the house in the back of his pickup truck. You wold be fortunate to have him represent you.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $600K in Essex Fells, NJ.

John Haydu is a professional. He is amazing at his job. It is obvious when working with him that he enjoys what he does and takes it seriously. Upon listing my parent's home, John worked hard to get it priced correctly to get them the best deal possible. The house sold for more than asking in less than a week after it had been on the market for over 6 months with a different realtor. We were all very impressed with John's attention to detail and dedication to making the sale easy for us all. It was an enjoyable process with John which I imagine is rare occurrence in a real estate transaction.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $550K in North Caldwell, NJ.

John is a truly amazing person and professional. He helped us find the exact property we were looking for, never pressured us or pushed us into something we weren't comfortable with. He worked with our demanding schedules and went out of his way to schedule contractors for us. To top it off he even helped the Seller get the C/O. He's very hands on and even after a sale he remains a reliable person that we can turn to should we have any questions or issues with the home.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $475K in Morristown, NJ.

Working with John was a pleasure. His knowledge of the market and my community allowed him to formulate a strategy that sold my home in 72 hours for more than asking price. From start to finish he was extremely helpful and supportive to ensure everything went as smooth as possible minimizing the effort required for my wife and I. I would highly recommend.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $700K in Basking Ridge, NJ.

Above all John is a hard working and very responsive professional. We highly recommend him and will recommend him to our friends.

We worked with John for several months in our search, and he constantly reiterated his willingness to spend the time to find what we really wanted, even as we were not perfectly sure what that was (did we want a single family home that was more urban, closer to our work or the City with a smaller yard or one set on a larger lot in a more rural setting if it came with a longer commute and was further from the City? In the end we found what will be our dream home, a diamond in the rough on a huge and unique lot with a tiny commute. We closed 10/31/2014). So we were very happy with the results!

Pros for working with John: - Very available at every stage of the process - Highly knowledgeable, patient and a good explainer - Good network of professionals to assist in the home buying process (we used John's recommended Home Inspector and Real Estate Attorney with very satisfying results) - Thoughtfully shares his opinion - Friendly and truly nice guy

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $550K in North Caldwell, NJ.

Brought a buyer to our home and used high pressure techniques on the elderly seller. Very disappointing, and that's the kindest comment that can be shared.

The property that my buyer purchased was first listed for 690,000. I know North Caldwell and all the comps in the area.The property was priced incorrectly. My buyer and I both looked at the recent sales in the area and found that the property was worth 525,000. We offered them 520,000 CASH AS IS. no inspections. The seller countered us at 580,000. I told them to make this deal work please pick the bank of your choice and we will pay you the full amount for what the bank appraisal comes back at.. The Bank appraised the house at 530,000. Instead of coming back to us the sellers reduced their price to 530,000 on the MLS. I called them back and my buyer paid 530,000 for the house. We closed today for the value of the property. Im sorry that one of the sellers siblings felt that I used high pressure techniques. All I did was use the correct information for my buyers.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Wayne, NJ.

The task of first time home buyers is always daunting. John was always very informative and helpful while looking for homes with us. We appreciated his honesty and patience with us. Any questions or concerns we had, he either knew the answer or was able to quickly research and get back to us.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $475K in Morristown, NJ.

John is an excellent Realtor and a stand up person.

Before we sold the home, John was instrumental and very hands on in getting the property ready for sale. He personally interviewed, negotiated and contracted with various contractors to do work at the home before we had an open house. He was our eyes and ears on site and ran the renovations/repairs for us. John took care of it all.

Upon listing, John successfully negotiated a sales price above asking price within a matter of days. We credit John for working with us to time the listing of the property at exactly the right time - we listened to John and he proved to be dead on.

Once under contract, John took care of all the work that needed to be done. He dealt with the local township for a Certificate of Occupancy; he coordinated access for the home inspection, and worked through the many requests that came in from the buyer and their attorney.

John worked tirelessly and literally was working through the night to ensure we would close on time. We would exchange emails and phone calls at the wee hours of the morning and night.

In the end, nothing fazed John. He is a true professional and I without reservation recommend you hire him to be your next agent.
