    John hung in there through numerous ups and downs, from my indecision about moving, to handling negotiations with a 'for sale by owner' house. Along with getting me the best possible price for the house I sold with him, he made buying a house in a difficult market as easy as possible. He is professional, knowledgeable, and also a very nice person.I am sick of moving and although I hope I never need his services again, I highly recommend him.

    John was exactly the right person to help me find my first home. He had a great sense of what I needed and wanted, even when I wasn't sure myself. That really came in handy when I started to get frustrated and lose focus after 4 months of looking. John knows Durham super well, and has a great sense for all the little things I typically overlook: noise, shoddy construction, a damp crawlspace. More than once he steered me away from a choice I'd have regretted, always reminding me that the right house is out there. Turns out he was right, and I'm glad I trusted him. I'd happily work with him again when I'm ready to sell my first home (but not for a few years at least!).

    John was amazing to work with! From the first day we worked with him, he gained our trust, as he truly observed what we valued and what we did not. From that he was able to help us narrow our options and prepare when the time was right to jump for one. He also helped us navigate the 1st time home buyer process and made it feel very simple for us. Our process went quickly and John worked very hard for us, even on weekends and around holidays to ensure we were best positioned to get our home! In a market like Durham’s, his insider knowledge of the market, neighborhoods, schools, etc. was extremely helpful. Overall, as long as I am living in the triangle, John will have my business and will be recommended to friends/family seeking a home in the area.

    John is very approachable and easy to talk to. As a first time homebuyer, this was crucial for me because I had a ton of questions. He made me feel comfortable and confident with the process. John is also thorough and trustworthy. During our first appointment, he referred to himself as a "crawl space guy, which meant that he was willing to take extra steps to ensure that I was making good decisions. John was a true pleasure to work with!

    I am so happy to have worked with John in finding my first home. He was informative, meticulous, and ultra responsive. He scoped out attributes of the house that I didn't even know to look for and ensured that everything met my house hunting goals. I love, love, love how responsive and communicative he is. He was a pleasure to work with and I will definitely recommend him to friends and family looking to buy property in the area!

    John is an exceptional realtor! Even though he did not represent us as the buyers, he was very helpful in providing guidance and A list of local inspectors and specialist for our new home. For future home purchases, John will be our first call. If you want someone who truly cares about your buying or selling experience and isn’t trying to just make a quick buck, then John is the realtor for you!

    John proposed a solid strategy for selling our home quickly and for maximum value after we moved out of state. He gave great, specific advice on how to allocate our budget for renovations and refreshes, and connected us with skilled, trustworthy vendors for updating paint, flooring, landscaping, etc. John is a great communicator and responsive, even when he's supposed to be on vacation! He was very knowledgeable about navigating buyer offers, the due diligence period, and the closing. We enthusiastically recommend him to sellers!

    John was wonderful to work with. As first-time homebuyers, he walked us through every step of the way. We were also moving from out of the area and John's superb knowledge of the Durham/Chapel Hill market was incredibly helpful.He was patient, honest, and thoughtful while we searched for and looked at homes. John has a keen eye for details and often highlighted elements we're so glad we started paying attention to. When it came to negotiations and contracting he was our advocate and always kept us feeling at ease.We can't thank him enough for helping us find our amazing home and highly recommend him!
