My Husband and I worked with John for over a year and a half searching for our first home. John always responded to our calls, emails, and texts in a timely manner. We looked at homes in Southern Erie County, Wyoming County, and Cattaraugus County. John traveled to all locations we wanted to see. When we found the house we wanted, John suggested what we should offer, and we got the house. John worked aggressively to contact the sellers' agent to ensure our offer was received and to determine if our offer was accepted. Overall, John is a great agent with lots of local experience. If we had to do it over again, we would still work with John.
John worked very hard with my husband and myself taking us all over WNY looking for the perfect property. John put in many hours helping us to find our perfect home without us even listing the home that we currently own. Once we found "it" he assisted in the negotiations and it became ours very quickly. We then moved to the next phase, selling our home. It went on the market and was sold quickly and above list price. I could not say anything negative about our experience with John. He was always professional as well as helpful to us. He was able to assist us with names of people that we needed to have work done on the old home as well as the new one. Each contractor that he recommended were also very professional and came when they were supposed to and performed the work to our satisfaction.
Our entire experience with John was excellent! With his help our house was sold after only a couple days on the market for over list price! He is extremely responsive, has extensive knowledge of the local real estate market and helped us through each step of the home selling process including the which updates were needed in our home to prompt a quick sale. We would highly recommend his services!
Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $125K in Cheektowaga, NY.
John helped my wife and I purchase our first home. We were very picky and searched for several months. Over this time John was always willing to meet with us, even on short notice, to show us houses we were interested in. He was responsive to our needs and helped us acquire our home before anyone else had the chance to make an offer. We were very happy with his service.
