John was my agent in helping me buy my first new home in several years. He demonstrated a level of experience and professionalism that I was pleased with. He showed the patience I expected as I viewed several homes before finding the one I really liked. John had a strong command of the entire process, including the negotiation phase and legal and contract aspects. I appreciated his knowledgeable answers to my questions. I felt like John was in my corner at all times and that I received superior service.

I engaged John to sell my condo at Metropolis, which, at the time, was leased to tenants with three months remaining on their lease. I was concerned that the property would be difficult to market, show and sell with the tenants still there and with so much time remaining on the lease. John was able to enlist the cooperation of the tenants in getting the property staged and photographed, as well as in keeping the unit “show ready,” accommodating agent showings and agreeing to end their lease early. John’s ability to recruit my tenants as part of the “team” resulted in the condo selling very quickly and at top dollar, with no lost rent before the sale closed.

John represented me in both the purchase and sale of my high rise condo at 1010 Midtown. His experience, wisdom and guidance were invaluable in my purchasing a really great property at what proved to be a bargain price. After two years of enjoying the high rise lifestyle, John sold the condo for me at over a $100k profit. I truly appreciated John’s professionalism, diplomacy and people management skills in the sale of my condo, holding the deal together despite a challenging buyer. I highly recommend John and his company.

I listed my Lake Lanier home with John last fall. I was attempting get it sold before cold weather arrived and the market dried up for the season. John did an excellent job getting the listing up quickly and with amazing photos that really represented my home well and pulled in a lot of buyer traffic. Additionally, John helped me understand the proper value of my home in a very difficult and segmented market. Because of his experience, attention to detail, and expertise I was able to sell my home within a few weeks of listing, which allowed me to move prior to the winter months. Thanks John!!!

John devised and executed a real estate strategy for me to take advantage of the strengthening home market. We deferred selling my Brookhaven home, leasing it instead (with positive cash flow) for two years while the market improved. At the same time, he found me a wonderful new home in Brookhaven and skillfully negotiated a great deal for me. When the market improved, as John predicted, he sold the rental home at top dollar and my new home value jumped considerably; he got me the best of all worlds! I recommend John frequently and with complete confidence; he is the best.

In a tight Midtown condo market, John was tenacious in his efforts to get me into properties as soon as they hit the market. He became aware of an amazing 21st floor corner unit at ViewPoint that was coming back on the market after a failed contract. John got me in to see the property within an hour of it becoming available and negotiated a price considerably lower than the previous contract price. I really valued John’s market access, knowledge and transaction skills.

John patiently and methodically helped me get my Sandy Springs ranch ready for sale; he clearly understood how to price the home and position it on the market. He negotiated a full-price deal that enabled me to close and then lease back the home for three months until my new town home (which he helped me buy… another positive experience) was completed. I could not have written a better script for my situation. Thank you, John.

I would like to thank Sage and John for giving me an amazing experience while trying to find us a home. As a kid, trying to find a new house is boring and hard. When I was told that we were going to see houses with John the next day I was thinking of ways to get out of going. When we walked through the houses, John did not just talk to my mom, he also asked me and my sister what we thought. The next day we had planned to see another house, I was excited to see what was in store.
One day after looking at 2 other houses and being disappointed, mom was not in the mood anymore to see the third but then John told her that it could be the house we would love, so we went to look at it. I am writing this at my desk, in the upstairs of that very house. Without John, we would not have enjoyed the process or have moved into this lovely home.

I am a 13-year-old that lives in Atlanta. I have moved many times in my life and all of them were fatiguing, searching for houses was always endless and tedious. However my recent move was something I wasn’t expecting at all. Our real estate agent, John, brought joy and fun to the process. He made sure my sister and I participated; taking in our opinions as well as my mom’s, and taught me loads of information about what type of house and interior would have the most resale value if we ever plan on selling. John makes sure you have a pleasant house hunting/purchasing experience and ensures that you get the best home for you. So far, living in my new home has been awesome. Our neighbors are welcoming and applaud our work in the front yard every time they walk by. I love my new home and out of my 7+ moves John has been my favorite real estate agent.
