Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Coral Ridge Isles, Fort Lauderdale, FL.
I have bought and sold quite a few properties over the years but, I have to say I've never been as pleased with a Real Estate Agent as I am with John. He is a true professional with great character and great work ethic. I will use him again and would highly recommend his services.
Coming from the UK we really needed help to find the right property. We wanted a Beachfront Condo but were overwhelmed with all of the choices and considerations. Knowledge and Professionalism was our main focus in finding the right agent. We also did not want to waste time because of how quickly prices are going up in South Florida. John’s service was the best! He listened to our desires and criteria then clearly explained what we could expect with available inventory, pricing, making an offer etc... He worked so well with us to find the perfect place. My Husband and I would definitely recommend John’s services to anyone looking for a great Agent to work with.
John was incredibly to work with. I would have to rate our experience with him as a perfect 10! We contacted John after finding him on Zillow. We had talked to a few other agents before him but we did not feel a connection. Johns quick follow up got our attention and his knowledge of the market was as good as we could wish for. We do not live in Florida (yet) and needed someone we could trust. Buying real estate in FL came with an education. There's so much to consider. The most impressive thing was his approach. He never came across as a "salesman"... I cannot say enough about how pleased we are. John got our offer accepted when there were multiple offers on the table.
We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Pennsuco, Doral, FL 33178
My son is moving to Doral for work and needs a short term lease. I contacted John based on the glowing client reviews I saw posted on Zillow hoping that he could help us find a property that meets my son's needs. Unfortunately for us, John's region is much further south than I realized, however he was still able to help me. He spent better than 15 minutes offering me insight regarding the best ways for us to find a place. John detailed potential obstacles as well as solutions to said issues, solid information regarding Doral and the surrounding areas among other things. Armed with the information he gave me, I was able to locate several strong possibilities that will work for my son. I am so grateful to him for his insight and advice. I him all the best!
John was the ideal real estate agent. He helped us sell our existing home and purchase our new one. He had extensive knowledge of the area we wanted to purchase in and was always very willing to answer any of the multitude of questions we had in an extremely timely and courteous manner. He was always willing to help above and beyond the necessary. He was very professional, respectful and efficient. I would recommend him to all my friends and family (actually already have to a few people in need of an agent!) and would use him again if I ever needed another agent.

John Ard is a clear minded, consummate professional who functions
flawlessly in the world of real estate and will guide his clients
through the process without misstep . He is very kind, polite and
without fail available to us.. I owned a property in a place where
many, available for sale, sat for years without being sold. I sought
John’s help and because he understood how to, he marketed it and in
10 days it was sold within my price parameters to people who
would be happy there. Once I gave the listing to him, the effort
on my part was zero. He never fails to answer when called and the
topper is, he’s the nicest, hardworking guy in the world who loves
his job and truly cares about his clients. You give John a basket
of worries, he brings it back filled with cherries. If you want to buy or
sell a ten million dollar property or an inexpensive apartment,
he can make it happen for you.
We started working with John in January as we started our search for a vacation home in Miami. We decided to work with John after interviewing several agents. Service we received from John was outstanding. In the three trips we made to Miami for home searches, we covered a wide area from Bal Harbor to Brickell, and decided to focus on Miami Beach. John showed us a lot of different types of condos, different styles of buildings and price ranges, which helped narrow down our search and finally close on a beautiful condo last week for a great price. Johns patience and willingness to listen and flexibility made it a real pleasure to work with him.

John is not only a delight to work with, he is wonderfully warm and funny. I not only used him for purchasing a new house but also for selling my previous house. I wholeheartedly recommend him. For the purchase, John displayed a very good knowledge of local neighborhoods. He was also VERY helpful with guiding through the process of making the offer, revising and negotiating. Throughout both the purchase and the sale, John was very responsive with cell, text and email in addition to voice and in-person contact.
We could not have expected more form an Real Estate Agent. We contacted John because he sold our neighbors property for the highest price in our neighborhood. Before we listed our home with him, he covered everything and answered all of out questions and some things we hadn'e even thought about. He made sure all Buyers making offers were pre-qualified and showed us the positives and potential negatives of each offer... We just completed the sale of our house with a smile on our face at closing. We are now using John to Buy and hope to be in contract soon.. We couldn't give a better reccomendation. He was by far the BEST choice for us.

We needed to quickly sell my mother's house this past August, found John's information on the web and contacted him with much reservation, however, this quickly changed. John was very professional and I quickly felt at ease. He was very knowledgeable, explained the process in layman's terms and overall gave great insight. We hired John and it was the best decision! John did an excellent job in communicating to us, at no point during the process were we ever left in the dark. There were many difficult paths along the way (no fault of John's), however, He steps in and made it less burdensome and painless. We closed within 3 weeks. Thank you JOHN.
