Ratings & Reviews

John is a very nice, kind, genuine and patient gentleman who spent a lot of time trying to understand our situation in order to help us buy our house. He accepted our limits and bent backwards to help us. Without him we would not be able to buy our house that we love so much. He is a true real estate professional who never tried to pressure us to rush into any decision. He gave us as much time as we needed to digest the unexpected and stressful processes of buying our house, and helped us go through it very smoothly. He used his expertise and knowledge to handle all the obstacles we encountered. It also took his out of the box thinking to get us the house. It was a pleasure to work with John. We are very satisfy with his service and would highly recommend him. Again, without him, we would never be able to buy this house that we love and enjoy so much.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $325K in Potrero Hill, San Francisco, CA.

John Farrell was an unexpected saving grace in the otherwise intimidating San Francisco real estate market and mortgage environment of 2010. He not only painted a clear picture of the property I was entering into a commitment with, but he was honest about the entire history of the area, the property itself, and many considerations I didn't come to understand and appreciate until years of living there. I say this because I purchased a property as a first-time home buyer, in a questionable area at the time but one that he had the vision to see as one that was up and coming with both near-term practical value as my primary residence as well as long-term potential to be a tremendous investment opportunity. It turned out he was right on the money with both assessments, I have now owned the property for 5 years living there comfortably and fully satisfied with my purchase in its own right, and adding to this my property has increased in value more than I could have anticipated in a short period of time with the area (Dogpatch/Potrero) becoming one of the most desirable areas in the city to live in now with the continuous expansion within the area itself and in nearby Mission Bay.

John is a real estate agent who stays current and informed with respect to rapidly changing market conditions. He is very patient and thorough in dealing with his clients. He is a soft-spoken but powerfully effective negotiator, who helped me to navigate the negotiation process with the banks for the best possible purchase price I could have attained. He was superbly responsive throughout the entire mortgage process all the way through to closing day and even beyond. He continues to keep in touch with me periodically all these years later, and it is always a pleasure to hear from him and to see him making an impact with his genuine care for people and sincere approach.

John is a rare find in the world of real estate, or any business for that matter, and I would highly recommend him (and regularly do recommend him to family and friends) for anyone looking to have an advocate as they search for their next home or investment property.

Sincerely, Tony P

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 in Miraloma Park, San Francisco, CA.

John is very impressive. He helped me find exactly the home I was looking for and the whole process was smooth and fast. He is very responsive and clearly has all the experience needed take on any real estate task. He's also a lot of fun to work with... which makes a hard process so much lighter.
