I have had outstanding experiences with John both as a buyer and a seller. As a buyer, he was continually identifying things about which I should be concerned and helped resolve them before they became problems. As a seller, he took me through the process of preparing a home for the sale. This preparation of my home was definitely a factor in the quick sale. In fact, it was amazing. We sold my house the day it went on the market (even before the open house) for more than similar homes in the neighborhood, and this was at the beginning of the down market. In both the sale and the purchase, his advice throughout the negotiation process was right on. He always gave me credit for the good decisions we made, but it was his advice that made it happen.

My husband and I began a relationship with John in 1999 while looking for a home in Edina. It was an aggressive market and we were impressed with John's ability to get us into houses quickly and his assessments on each property were truly invaluable. He is very knowledgeable about the area and encouraged us to look in neighborhoods we really had not considered. Ultimately we ended up buying in one of these which is the Parkwood Knolls neighborhood. We are now on our second home and we thank John for helping us once again find an exceptional property that meets our needs. We would highly recommend John to anyone looking in the Twin Cities area.

John's purpose, from our experience, was not to sell us a house; but to sell us our house, the right house. He painstakingly took time to understand who we were as a family, listened to what we envisioned and applied his considerable expertise to navigate us to just the house we wanted. Incredibly, John would at times advocate for us, even to his own disadvantage, for the sake of our satisfaction. Getting to know more about John taught us that he applies this thoughtful advocacy to other endeavors in his life, as well. Not only is John an excellent realtor and a consummate professional, he is a great person."

John works tirelessly to provide excellent service before, during, and after a transaction. My family and I have relied on John’s real estate knowledge and experience for the last 10 years. He always comes through for us. John understands the importance of listening to his client’s expectations and needs.

— George, Eden Prairie

One of John's best qualities as a realtor is that he was as picky as we were as buyers. I recall one instance in which he talked us out of making an offer and it was a great decision in retrospect. It was an excellent example of how he is always looking out for our interests as long-term clients and not just his own interests in making a transaction. As available as information is over the web, John still managed to provide a lot of value in the search process. His experience gives him great insight into finding the right neighborhood and the right match - something that isn't easily done by just researching online.

Pat and I were impressed by John’s knowledge of the local market and his professionalism. John was always well prepared; on time and kept us fully informed every step of the way. We loved working with John and would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to buy or sell their home.

— Chuck and Pat, Bloomington

John really wants his clients to find the home they will truly love. We have bought and sold our homes with John and he has made both processes very professional, easy and enjoyable. He has always been so gracious and accommodating that we never feel like we’re bugging him if we want to see yet another home anywhere from the city lakes out to Lake Minnetonka and all the suburbs in between. He is so happy to be in the process with us and has become a real friend who comes alongside wanting us to find our next dream home as much as we do. He has never, ever been pushy but is always upbeat and ready to go, keeping in mind our budget and wish list and so willingly helping us to our goal no matter how long it takes. We would wholeheartedly recommend John to everyone as their real estate professional.

— Dan and Linda, Eden Prairie

John took the time to get to know us and what our goals were and then proceeded to accomplish them in a truly dynamic fashion. We are so happy that we worked with you – TOP JOB. We certainly would recommend you to future clients.

— Teresa and Alec, Minnetonka

If you’re looking for a person that has strong knowledge of the real estate market and the ability to listen to your wants, John is your guy! John would not only listen, he also challenged me in a way that gave me the peace of mind that the decision I was about to make was the right one for me! If you’re looking for a person that actually cares about finding you the right home, then John is your man!

— Mark, Eden Prairie

In my dealing with John I have found him to be very personable, friendly, respectful and trustworthy. He is a hard worker and willing to go out of his way to address questions and concerns that his clients have. He is knowledgeable of the housing market in the Twin Cities and has proved to be of great help in determining proper property values. He has been great to work with and someone I would gladly recommend for both buyers and sellers of property.

— Gary, Eden Prairie
