Many realtors told us it would be years before we could own a home. We had paid $1,000 in rent for three years, so we knew we could handle a mortgage payment. We finally moved in with our parents to save for a down payment. Still, realtors were reluctant to show us houses, without first showing them the money. So, we took a chance and called on a for-sale-by-owner ad. The owner was friends with John. John vowed he would represent both of us honestly and he did just that. John has integrity and an unwavering work ethic. As first-time homebuyers, we were often lost in the process and John kept us informed -- any time of the day or night. Literally, three months after making that call, John sealed the deal and we are moving into our first home. He is extremely knowledgeable about the process and the entire transaction was seamless. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home.
