Bought a home in 2011 in Marlboro, Kennett Square, PA 19348.
I bought my first house four years ago, and John Kriza was an excellent realtor. I was nervous to buy a home on my own, but John walked me through every step of the process. He helped my figure out what I could afford and what might be too much of a "fixer-upper" for me. I have recommended him to several people and they have all had similar experiences. Whenever I buy my next home, I will be using him again.

John was terrific. My wife and I were selling a home (townhouse) and buying a new one (single family home), and John was very patient and informative throughout the entire process. He was very knowledgeable on the market, and issues we should be concerned with when looking at new houses. John was also just a very nice guy and very easy to work with. I would recommend him for anyone looking to buy or sell in the area!
Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $350K in Landenberg, PA.
John recently helped us purchase our first home, and we would recommend him highly to other buyers. From the beginning of the process, he was calm, reassuring, and helpful. He responded to our emails quickly, guided us through all steps of home buying, efficiently filed paperwork, and thoroughly answered our many questions (the big and small ones). We were particularly impressed with his knowledge of the area and his accurate eye for a home's quality and value--both skills proved invaluable as we toured homes and finally found one. We also appreciated that he wasn't pushy; he followed our pace. All in all, he was an excellent realtor.

John was extremely helpful and professional throughout the sale of our home. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to purchase or sell their home. The virtual representation he provided for our home through pictures was extremely helpful in our receiving multiple offers on our home, the first one within 3 days of listing!
Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Kennett Square, PA.
John was very helpful with the sale of our house. From the very start, with our first meeting where he asked how I was feeling about the sale, to the very end when he congratulated us after settlement, he was very willing to help in any aspect to make us comfortable with each step of the process. It was quite impressive with just how quickly it all happened and yet John maintained a calm composure, which helped us to stay at ease with the questions we had regarding each phase of such a large venture. We would definitely recommend John to serve as another's real estate agent.
Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Kennett Square, PA.
We found John by asking to view a home he was listing that was already under contract. He worked to understand what we were looking for and what our budget was, and alerted us of appropriate listings that came on the market as well as showed us potential alternatives. He eventually sent us a listing for the home we fell in love with, and now 2 months later I couldn't be happier with our decision to work with John. He truly made the home buying experience smooth and painless. He walked us through the entire process, making sure we fully understood every step. He recommended contacts for the mortgage approval process, home inspection, etc. And he helped us negotiate a price we were very happy with. I can't recommend him highly enough.

John Kriza has our highest recommendation. My husband and I spent ten months looking for homes, about eight of which were with another realtor. John has his research done on the home you want to view ahead of time. His background growing up in a contracting environment makes him an incredible asset to buyers. John is honest and has your best interest at heart. John was able to tell us roofing types, when certain aspects of the house would need replaced based on their look and ages, as well as tell us the approximate cost of the projects we would expect to be updating as things got old. It allowed us to make a smart purchase of a wonderful home where things were in great condition and would not need updated soon after moving in. John is always available and responds quickly to texts and calls regarding houses you would like to view. He is patient and truly listens to what you find important in your search for a home. Anyone in the area should certainly contact John to make this process as stress free and enjoyable as possible.

We have nothing but positive things to say about John! He was so understanding and helpful from the very beginning. Since this was our first time looking for a home, we weren't really knowledgeable about what to look for in terms of renovations, neighborhoods, systems within the home, etc. We looked at every and any home available in the Delaware County and Wilmington area, and John never showed frustration or annoyance in our demands. He was the utmost professional! I remember John giving us one crucial piece of advice: to think about the components of a home that you cannot change, such as the neighborhood, nearby school system, ability to convert a finished basement, etc. As long as those are good, anything else can be fixed. With that in mind, we were able to narrow our viewing and ultimately find our dream home! We suggest John for anyone shopping for a home!
