John was absolutely wonderful and a blessing to our family through a very difficult time. We needed to sell my mothers home after she passed away and I could not have chosen a better agent. He worked with me at my price and never tried to pressure me to lower it and he would always answer his phone when I called. John has great connections for various professionals from staging to a handyman and all of them did an amazing job at very reasonable prices. Then at the very end of the whole deal - John did a final walk through to help ensure the condition of the home for the new owners and found an old metal box filled with my parents memories which he safeguarded until I could return to Laguna Niguel to get it. He also did all the typical stuff all other agents do (caravans, open houses, pictures/flyers, marketing...) Although there was some major things he does that the others don't - he only charges1% instead of the traditional 2.5% and his contracts allow you to walk away at any time for any reason unconditionally!!! Simply put, He gave me peace of mind when I needed it most and saved us thousands of dollars in the process and doesn't force you to stay with him. I wholeheartedly recommend John and would encourage you to check him out. Oh yea - one more thing I need to mention.. I called him at 8:00 pm to let him know I was going with him and by 9:30 am (before we signed anything) he had a solid offer for me which, looking back, I should have taken - but didn't .. live and learn and given the opportunity - Hire John!!

John was an absolute pleasure to work with! Not only did he help me price my property correctly but he gave me the reassurance you sometimes need when you're waiting for the right offer. He was on top of everything and also kept me in the loop throughout the whole process. With John's expertise and diligence I was able to get top dollar for my condo while it was tenant occupied!! That is not an easy feat!! Thanks for everything John!
John was great to work with on the purchase of our home in San Juan Capistrano. The process was very painless ( unlike our previous experience with another broker ) It sure makes a huge difference when you have a broker working for you that knows the local market, offers good advise in the negotiation process and can walk you through every step of the purchase. We never had to call or e-mail him once and check on progress on the transaction he was always pro active in communicating with us every step of the way.
We couldn't have asked for a better real estate company. John helped us find a home in Dana Point that has turned out to be a home that far out did our expectations of what we could afford and as a result has become one of the best investments of our lives. We would be crazy not to use John in the future because of the money he will help us save.

John really went the distance for us in making sure we got the home we really wanted. His careful attention to every detail of the deal and his professionalism ensured we were chosen out of the multiple offers made on the property we wanted. We highly recommend his real estate services.

Thank you so much for your help with our new home. I couldn't have done it with out you as my agent, really!! Selling my old home and finding our new home was the best thing we have ever done, thanks to you. We have not only have a new home with great schools for the kids, but we have a new family life as well. My wife has never been so happy, the location, schools and all around area are far and away better than we ever dreamed. We got in just under the wire too with the ever rising prices of real estate these days. Thanks again for your personal attention.

My wife and I were going to be married in the summer of 2001....and we were searching for a house to call our own. When we enlisted John to assist us in locating our first residence together, we received more service than we could ask for. John's unmatched knowledge of a vast array of communities and his familiarity with the real estate industry made finding the right home effortless. From viewing, to bidding and finally purchasing our property, John was absolutely awesome!
