John helped us sell our 2-bedroom condo in downtown Washington, D.C. He is professional, reliable, responsive, organized and trust-worthy. He is a great communicator who was always available to speak with us at a moment's notice and was good at keeping us up to date on all aspects of our sale. He was always our sole, primary contact and did not hand off work to other members of a team, as some realtors do. He managed by himself all Open Houses, marketing and sales, negotiations and closing activities. He also brought significant value by identifying and managing cost-effective, reliable vendors such as handymen, painters and stagers and followed up with them as needed to address any issues/concerns. We highly recommend working with him. – Abdellatif Kabbaj

John gives realtors a good name. Unlike some agents, he is sincere, personable, genuine and always keeps his clients' needs and objectives as his priority. We worked with John over a period of several months as we searched for our first home in D.C. In a highly competitive market with limited  inventory, he remained positive, energetic and a team player until we found the ideal property. As a long time D.C. resident, he is highly knowledgeable and quick to offer reliable insights. While he took a low pressure approach with us during our search, he is aggressive when negotiating with sellers and other agents. We were thrilled to purchase our newly renovated townhouse at $20,000+ below the list price. - Rachel Leffler

I finally made the leap from renting to home ownership in the really nice D.C. neighborhood that I've grown to love. After competing for another property in a multiple offer situation, I was happy to secure a one-bedroom co-op in Adams Morgan - at list price. John is professional,  reliable, a great communicator and was always proactive in ensuring that everything stayed on track through closing. He has access to a wide variety of vendors, including home inspectors and moving companies, and was able to quickly identify lenders and settlement companies specializing in transactions for co-ops. I recommend working with John. - Matt Pearson

John worked with my family through what could have been a highly stressful situation. For the first time, we engaged in a 1031 Tax Deferred Exchange as we sold investment property in MD and sought to locate a quality, like-kind investment in D.C. within a limited 45-day period. We consulted with John on our specifications, timing and likes/dislikes. Ultimately, thanks to his efforts, we purchased a 5-bedroom, fully renovated townhouse in Columbia Heights at $30,000+ below list price, which we will be renting as two separate units. John has a wide range of trusted resources, such as home inspectors, contractors, settlement officers and vendors specializing in DC rental issues such as Certificates of Occupancy and Basic Business Licenses. During the home buying process, he was quick to provide answers and always had the full support of his colleagues at Coldwell Banker. He also was adept at interfacing with our Trust attorneys to ensure that all 1031 provisions were properly addressed. John is trustworthy, reliable and responded to our inquiries quickly. He was always available by email or phone and showed complete dedication to us.  He was our sole point person and never handed us off to a sub-agent. His personalized service made us feel like we were always a priority. - Linda Wareheim

As a new resident to the D.C. area, I was really pleased with the ease at which John was able to help me quickly locate and secure my new home. He has great knowledge of the city and was able to help me identify the pros and pitfalls of each property under consideration. He listens and acts quickly. I recommend that you work with John when searching for your next home. – Stephanie Kimber

John was proactive and persistent in finding reasonably-priced options. He was responsive, reliable and always available. He always replied to phone calls or messages within 30 minutes, making me feel like a priority. i recommend working with him. -- Conrad LaJoie

John has extensive marketing/sales experience -- an added value that he is able to bring to the real estate business. John and I teamed on marketing efforts at JPMorgan Chase for nearly 8 years to bring exposure to the company’s offerings. He is proactive, dynamic and has great drive and determination. I highly recommend him and his stellar work ethic. – Kris Crawford

I worked with John for more than 7 years at JPMorgan Chase. He is a great marketer, communicator, negotiator and strategic partner. These are great qualities to have in the real estate profession. He would definitely be on my dream team. – Aida Ernst
