Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $675K in Ellicott City, MD.
We were buying a house from long distance and were worried if that would work out. John Koenig quickly allayed our anxieties! He previewed many homes in advance of a weekend house hunting trip, using the criteria we gave him. And - it was successful! We found a beautiful home. John has a calm and optimistic personality, which was a perfect match for us as nervous first-time home buyers. He is a genuine and trustworthy person, no snake oil here. :) We highly recommend John.

Looking to buy your first house is daunting, stressful, and could leave you feeling queasy wondering if you're making the right choices, unless you're working with John. Not only was looking for our first house a relatively painless experience, but the process of purchasing the house went far more smoothly than I could have ever expected. John provided a plethora of information, pointed out things we may not have noticed otherwise, and helped us find a beautiful house that I am still in love with. With his experience, we managed to be the winning bid on a fantastic home and we could not be happier with the final result.

John was instrumental in helping our family purchase our first home, and he definitely made the buying process much simpler and in many ways delightful. His over twenty years of experience are evident when talking with him about all of the aspects of buying a home. He answered anything we asked from local information, options for purchasing something with more confidence, alternative things to ask from a seller, negotiation (price and post-inspection), and all of the individual pieces of information needed to close and complete necessary paperwork at closing. If there was an issue with any part of a home, John would have a favorable suggestion on how to easily have something fixed or warrantied, and he did a great job of making himself available at times suitable for us to look at homes. We can't imagine having gone through the process without the expertise and help of John and would definitely recommend him to anyone on the market for a home.

John was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and professional in helping me purchase my first home. He made the process easy and stress-free, and I highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home. He was honest, patient and upfront, and after I found a home to purchase, he was able to recommend great people to redo the floors as well as move all of my furniture to my new residence for a reasonable price. Overall, if you are lucky enough to have John as your Real Estate Agent, you are sure to have a great experience.

John is the best realtor we have ever worked with, and I worked in the real estate industry for a couple of years, so I have met a lot of them. He was patient, reliable, and willing to commit the time to lots of house-searching. He operates solo, so you only have one point of contact, which is convenient. I was always able to reach him when I needed to.

Best agent/ mediator/ negotiator / all-around guy we've ever met.
can't even put into words how amazing John is. We're first time home buyers, and as you know, it could be a little overwhelming. It's hard for me to believe that John actually had more clients than us, or that he wasn't sitting by the phone waiting for us to pester him with question after question because every time we called or sent him an email, the response time was so quick. Johns patience, compassion, understanding and intelligence made the whole process infinitely easier than it could have been. We are now the proud owners of a fantastic home in Mount Washington--I think back and my wife and I are still in awe that people with Johns abilities, ethics and professionalism exist. 5 stars is not enough for this man.
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Hunting Ridge, Baltimore, MD.
Over the past 50+ years my wife & I have had the opportunity to buy two homes and sell the two homes through r/e agents. Of all the agents we have dealt with, I would say that John Koenig did more than any other agent to take care of all our needs/concerns every step of the way. From our initial contact with John Koenig, to the completion of settlement, he was able to satisfactorily answer any questions we had, and provide us with sound advice. He shared the input from prospects promptly, and provided more than adequate information on the existing housing market so we could make informed decisions as to the direction we should take. He accomplished all of this in a very professional manner with a very high degree of integrity.

John was an absolute pleasure to work with through the process of purchasing my first home. I am getting ready to sell and buy again and will definitely use John for this as well. He is a very upstanding honest person with regards to what needs to be done and how to do it. I would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home.
