Sold a Condo home in 2014 in Pensacola, FL.
I first met John when I submitted an inquiry regarding a home in which I was interested. He was the first to respond and that was the beginning of a beautiful business relationship. While I did not subsequently purchase a home, I did list my condo with John. In a terrible market for condos, with virtually no one being able to obtain financing, John managed to find a qualified buyer, and as another reviewer so aptly said, "John gave me my life back."

While this was not an expensive property, I am positive I could not have expected better service, more expertise nor more diligent attention to my needs if I were selling a million dollar beach house.

The closing process could not have been smoother. It was the easiest closing I have ever been party to on either side.

I would not hesitate to recommend John Douglas to anyone buying or selling property in the Pensacola area.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Pensacola, FL.
John Douglas gave me my life back. Seriously. I have read the other reviews posted on this page, and while they provide accolades and testimonials to John's knowledge, skills, expertise, and dedication, they are evidence of the "rule" (that John is the best Realtor, ever, and can find or sell a home faster than anyone); my story is the exception that proves the rule. After my divorce in 2009, I knew I would need to sell my home. I had refinanced it at the height of the market in 2005. I knew property values had plunged, but there was no way I could continue to make my mortgage payment. So, I called John. I am still in awe of his dedication to short selling my property. It took 40 months (yes, 3 1/2 YEARS) to complete the sale. From flaky buyers to dealing with Bank of America financiers, John was tireless, dedicated, and always upbeat, "Don't worry, buddy, we'll get this sold," was his constant refrain. On four separate occasions I filled out a seller's contract. Oh, did I mention that I moved to Hawaii in 2010? Yep. And who maintained the property? Filed a police report after copper thieves stole the AC and gutters? Had a gas and water leak fixed? Had the yard cleared, garage cleared, and house cleaned? Who scanned, faxed, and Fed Ex'ed those contracts--not just to me in Hawaii, but to my ex-wife in Missouri? John Douglas And after each contract fell through, did he grouse, complain, make one negative statement about anything?????? Nope. Not once! I swear. He is like the Buddha of real estate. And he was right; he sold my home. And gave me my life back. Thank you John Douglas.

Bought a home in 2012.
John Douglas is the hardest working Real Estate agent I've had the privilege to work with. I recently bought a home on the water on Perdido Key. A home I thought I never could afford. It would have been impossible without John. It was a short sale requiring patience, an in-depth knowledge of the process, and tenacity. John proved himself more than capable. We now have the home of our dreams and John Douglas made it happen.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $75K in Pensacola, FL.
We were in the market for a second home. The search began for a real estate agent which is about as stressful as buying a car. Our last real estate purchase was 20 yrs prior. My daughter knew of John through a colleague. She put us in contact with him. When John called to schedule an appointment we discussed and explored our expectation of the real estate buying process, as well as, a real estate agent. At our appointment it was apparent that John was personable, professional and an excellent listener. He had a great understanding of our specific home requirements and needs. Every question was answered with honesty and integrity. John’s expertise, experience and guidance through the many twist and turns along the way, was invaluable. He stayed calm, cool and collected when I wasn’t. Our buying experience was streamline, seamless and successful. I highly recommend John Douglas to everyone interested in any real estate transaction. We definitely look forward to working closely with John for future transactions.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Pensacola, FL.
Highly recommend John, will use again if buying a second place in Pcola.

I contacted John about the 101 calle de santiago property that I saw on zillow, and right away I could tell he was a different kind of agent. I felt like I was talking to someone I have known for years, we seemed to trully connect instantly, on more than just a business level. This would prove valuable later on, as I asked for very important, somewhat personal advice on how to proceed in the negotiating process and inspection process. After guiding me through the negotiation, he was always there, weekends, nights, you name it to show me the house, or let professionals working on the house. He was always was quick and knowledgable with his answers to my questions across a broad spectrum of subjects. He always made himself available via text messaging, and was happy to immediately shoot me back a response. The whole process took place with me in Jacksonville, so he went above and beyond with the process of ensuring the neccesary repairs that were required to close were made. When the repairmen came, he was always on site ensuring the correct and proper repairs were being made. When financial requirements presented themselves I trusted him with over 4500$ To be kept in standby, to be paid to the roofer upon completion of the work. The question isnt what will John do for you, but what wont he do for you. Everything in the whole process went very smooth, and I believe John is almost entirely to thank for the true happiness this house has brought. I give him my highest recommendation for him to lead you through the journey to home ownership.

Sold a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $150K in Pensacola, FL.
It was 2008, one big Market Crash looming and I had a house I needed to sell. A friend of mine happened to run into John and told him of my situation. John, the utimate professional immediately contacted me, set up an appointment to view my property, and the rest was magical. He had photos of my home and an MLS listing within the week. He advised me appropriately and assisted with the details of being a home seller. I was awed and impressed when we had 9 bids on my home in the first two weeks! This was the worst of times, yet John made the impossible happen. We accepted the most reasonable offer and he worked his magic to appease all parties. John loves selling homes and matching his clients to the house of their dream! And he does it well.

If you need an enthusiastic and energetic agent to help you sell or find a home, I highly recommend using John Douglas. Together, you and he will plan for your successful housing mission. John personalizes the process and makes it all very rewarding.

Thanks John, Karen

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $175K in Pensacola, FL.
John Douglas is not just a real estate agent, he is a matchmaker. Real estate isn't just a job for John, it's an art. And being the true artist that he is (in more ways that one), he can find you the perfect canvas for you to paint your life into! After just a few hours of spending time with John, he used his intuition and vast knowledge of the city of Pensacola to figure out where my family and I would be the happiest. He knew what we were looking for, even before I did! Buying a home from out of town brought fear and trepidation, but John's expertise calmed our nerves and decreased our anxiety ten-fold. We are now typing this review from the comfort of our new home, and we couldn't be happier! Now that all is said and done, we call John not just for advice on the local community, but to hang out over a beer! We have found not just an amazing real estate agent, but a friend.

Showed home in 2012.
John Douglas was very honest, professional and thorough. He listened to my needs, understood what I was looking for and didn't waste any of my time showing me properties that didn't meet my guidelines. He is also a very pleasant person and I enjoy working with him!

Sold a Other home in 2012 in Pensacola, FL.
John and I just completed a short sale of my home in Pensacola Florida that had literally been ongoing for over a year. He stayed diligent, effective, and highly professional through a horrendously stressful and negative situation. I truly began to think of John as a friend because no matter how distraught the real estate endeavor we were attempting, he remained focused, many times when I had not.

He not only negotiated the sale of my home in a dead market, but he managed to ensure that my lender would write off the difference between what I owed and what the market would sell for. He even earned me a small relocation fee!

If you are looking for a knowledgeable, professional, effective Realtor who makes you feel as though you are in the hands of a true friend, look no further than Real Estate a Go-Go. aka John Douglas.
