MY MISSION STATEMENT

I am committed to providing you with exceptional service through all facets of your real estate transaction. I will competently and compassionately guide you through the real estate process, providing extensive market knowledge, aggressive marketing strategies, negotiating expertise and honest advice to ensure your understanding every step of the transaction.

SERVICES FOR BUYERSYour home purchase is the largest and most complex financial decision of your life. It is very important to have a knowledgeable expert firmly in your corner during this process. As a results-oriented buyer's agent, I have developed a GUARANTEED BUYERS PROGRAM specifically designed to take the uncertainty and stress out of your home buying process.

As my GUARANTEE to you, I will:

Explain all steps involved in the home buying process, the terms used, and all players involved. I will also help you get pre-approved for a loan if you are not pre-approved already.

Create an open dialogue to learn about your home style preference, your lifestyle, your price range and your preferred neighborhoods. With my knowledge of the greater Seattle market, I will save you time by quickly narrowing your search to neighborhoods and homes that fit your criteria.

Use the Northwest Multiple Listing Service (NWMLS) to find homes that meet your needs, preview these properties on my own, show you "the best of the best" and help you determine the pros and cons of each home.

Employ my tact and negotiation skills to guide you through the purchase once we find the "home of your dreams". I promise to negotiate aggressively for the best price and terms possible.

Create a "closing timeline" to monitor the various actions and deadlines leading to the successful close of your transaction. 

Exhibit the highest standards of dedication, integrity and professionalism throughout every phase of the transaction. My goal is to exceed your expectations so you would never think twice about referring me to your friends and loved ones!

Ratings & Reviews

I "met" John on the internet as I don't live in Seattle....and seriously that was a huge stroke of luck...He is truly the "best" real estate agent you could come up with, if you were trying to design the worlds best real estate agent ...he knows every inch of Seattle like the back of his hand and his knowledge of what each area is about - the kind of stuff only someone extremely familiar with an area could be. He knows "who" lives there, where to eat, drink and be merry, where to play, shop, party, where to walk the dog, where to hike, swim, skate, etc etc - he is an amazing resource. He is super organized, smart, personable....all A+ stuff for a real estate agent. He's the best and he didn't pay me to say this! :-)

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $600K in Wedgwood, Seattle, WA.

My wife and I retained John and worked with him for eight months in an absolutely brutal market for buyers. He navigated us through countless showings and wrote at least ten offers, never once pushing us to concede terms that were out of our comfort zone. In an atmosphere of multiple offers and contingency waivers, his patient counsel is priceless.

When he found our dream home, a gorgeous 4/2.5 designed by its only owner, he pulled out all the stops to win in a situation where our offer wasn't even the highest on the table!

John executed perfectly and exercised tremendous poise, all while juggling the roles of teacher, advocate, and friend. We have rarely had the pleasure to work with such an honest, complete service professional.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 in Shoreline, WA.

We have been working with John for several months as we search for a new home. We have a somewhat unique situation to which we feel John brings honesty, accurate and astute information, and honed expertise. Through this ongoing process, John has been consistently respectful and reassuring. We feel he genuinely listens to our concerns, following our "wish list" without impatience or showing us homes having no relevance to our search. Trust is of utmost importance in such major decisions. We trust John!  More Less
