I have known John H. Leavitt first as a friend, and then as a real estate professional for almost 20 years. Mr. Leavitt and his wife became my neighbors across the street in the mid 1990's. Since he began his career in real estate it has been my privilege, as an attorney, to work with him in a number of real estate transactions for both buyers and sellers. My clients often expressed appreciation for his assistance and guidance in negotiating the terms of their contracts whether buying or selling property and his knowledge concerning many issues and aspects concerning the real estate market. Unlike many real estate persons I have experienced in my 46 years as a practicing attorney, John continued to be of assistance and guidance to his clients after the contract signing in matters such as obtaining mortgage commitments, home and building inspections, repairs and remediations when necessary, obtaining certificates of occupancy and fire/carbon monoxide compliance certificates, arranging final utility readings, pre-closing inspections and the like. During all of these transactions he has always been personable, friendly and professional in his contacts with his clients and my office, promptly responds to phone, e-mail or fax communications and in general has been a pleasure to work with throughout.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $450K in Hamburg, NJ.

John Leavitt was our broker for 2 house sales, and also as our buyer broker when we were house-hunting. John always made whatever time was necessary to see as many houses as possible. If you're selling a house, he gives you a very honest assessment of what needs to be fixed or done to sell your house, and is very accurate with market pricing. He often hosts a broker-only luncheon at your house, to expose you house to as many local brokers as possible before putting it on the market. When buying a house, he can immediately spot flaws in houses and gives you an estimate of what financial impact such a flaw would have on a bid or in a repair if you purchase that house. I would recommend John to be your broker whether buying or selling.

Sold a home in 2013 in Mount Freedom, Randolph, NJ 07869.

I met John 6 years ago when I was looking for commercial property to buy. He never pressured me and always kept me in mind when a property came on the market that I might be interested in. His knowledge and immediate responses to my requests impressed me so much that when I had 2 commercial properties to sell, I called him immediately. He has his finger on the pulse of the local commercial and residential markets. I wouldn't think of calling anyone else. He has given me excellent advice of how to prepare my properties for sale. He helped me to realize exactly what I wanted to get out of my properties. The market has changed so much I didn't even know what my properties were worth. This is just one area that I feel John earns his commission! He works relentlessly to negotiate a fair price in such a way that both parties, seller and buyer, feel respected and heard. That is rare today. There is never pressure to accept unfair offers so John can make the sale. He truly puts his clients first. I can honestly say no one, not one other Real Estate made me feel that way. It was and is the best real estate encounter I have every had. It took 30 years for me to find a true Real Estate PROFESSIONAL. When I want to sell my home, I know where I am going.
