"John creates such a positive experience that I almost wish he wouldn't get the job done so quickly. Integrity- 10 years of property transactions and never once has there been a "misunderstanding"; spoken words match written words, and all parties are always on the same page. While he's honing in on what we want, he teaching us current market conditions, finance conditions. When we visit properties, he's looking at them as intensely as we are often prompting us to look again at a highlight or grey area. We've usually found our home in three outings. When the acquisition hits a snag, we're never abandoned and he's usually been through something even more outrageous so he laughs through it. And before you know it, he's saying good-bye. I'm not a trusting person, I've never felt cheated by John Brown.

This was my first time buying a home so I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into. John has decades of experience and knows homes and knows Philadelphia like the back of his hands. He went over and beyond and really made me feel like he had my best interest at hand. He was available at night, weekends and even showed me a during a snow storm (the home I eventually purchased). I would give John a million stars if I could. He has a special place in my heart!" - Bruce.
"Listed & sold my condo in 3 weeks- ‘NUF SAID!!! I recommend JOHN highly! Even 4 years after he sold my condo, I texted him for a referral for a roofer & he came back within an hour or so with 2 names! Can’t say enuf Gr8 things about this man!
