John presented a professional marketing plan that gave us a great deal of confidence that we had chosen the right real estate agent.  He then followed that plan providing us with excellent advice regarding the preparation of our home for sale as well as a list of reputable contractors we could use along the way. He patiently followed our progress and when it came time to list, his intense knowledge of the local market helped us set a realistic price that led to a very satisfactory result. His regular communication with us during the process never left us in doubt. We are very grateful for his help and are very happy to recommend John without reservation.
