John helped my fiancé and I get the house we really wanted even after we initially passed it up a few weeks earlier. While the seller was difficult and made the buying process more of a burden than it needed to be, John remained professional and collected. His contracts were timely, efficient, and effective. He negotiated several of the repairs we wanted on our beautiful historic home. John knew the neighborhood we liked and had recently sold properties in the area. His passions for a happy, healthy, and historic home were evident. He helped make our first home buying experience a huge success.
