"John helped us buy our first home in Darien and was recommended to us by a friend. My husband and I would HIGHLY recommend John to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. From our initial introductory phone call discussing what we were looking for in a home, to our final walk through in the home we ultimately ended up buying, John was there with us every step of the way. He is responsive, reliable, knowledgable, professional, clearly did his due diligence, and often times knew more about properties than the listing agent. He always had our best interest in mind... making sure we knew the pros and cons of every property we saw based on what we were looking for. He also made sure we got the best deal possible during the negotiation process and went to bat for us. He also thinks outside of the box in terms of negotiations and deal making. This was our first home purchase, and John was extremely patient and explained every step of the process to us, answering my many questions, and always making sure we understood what was going on since we had never gone through the purchase process before. If we ever sell or buy another property, John will be the first and only person we call. "

"We worked with John for several years, first renting our unit to various tenants and finally selling in July 2021. Throughout it all, John was a huge help and made every process easier. He was quick to respond to questions, had great recommendations on items like cleaning or plumbing services, gave honest and helpful thoughts when deciding to make home upgrades before the sale. We could not have been happier and would highly recommend John to anyone looking for help in selling, buying, or renting property. Thank you John."

"We worked with John for over a year to learn the Fairfield County market and look for a home. Not only is he a highly skilled tactical broker, he has an encyclopedic market knowledge of Darien, Rowayton, Greenwich, New Canaan, etc. and happens to be a great guy.He is extremely patient, fun to work with and understands how to counsel different types of buyers and sellers. On top of that, his referrals to attorneys, mortgage bankers, etc. are all spot-on. If you are listing a home or looking to purchase one, we cannot speak highly enough of John. He will guide you through the process and get the deal done! "

"Thank goodness for John Bainton!!!! Before we found out about John my fiancé and I spent well over a year looking for our first home. It became so discouraging and at times we had lost hope of ever finding our dream home. All that changed when we met John Bainton. He listened carefully to what we were hoping to find, our likes and dislikes...I can tell you he truly listened, he persevered and shortly after made our dream of owning a home a reality. What I learned about John was he has an enormous amount of integrity, extremely knowledgeable, he takes his job very seriously, patient and is truly gifted. This man was with us every step of the way...even after we closed he still checks in on us to see how everything is progressing and if we need any help. I'm honored to have met John and consider him a true friend. If you're looking for a realtor look no further...because he truly has a gift! "

"John was a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend him. He was very responsive, knowledgable, patient, and extremely helpful throughout the entire process. Not only is he an expert on Fairfield County, but he also provided sound guidance to help us make the most informed decision for our family. As first-time buyers, we are very happy with our decision to work with John and we would not hesitate to use him again."

"We had a wonderful time working with John Bainton as our agent. My wife and I have sold many homes over the years and found this to be one our best experiences. We felt lucky to have someone working as hard as we were to sell our house. John did a great job researching, pricing and lining up buyers to view the home. We know he has a strong team of people contributing behind the scenes to help make the sale, inspection and closing go as smoothly as possible. I would not hesitate to recommend his services. The success we had was due in large part to the fact that John sees his work as a profession and not just a job."

"John did a great job listing and selling the house in a tough market environment. He helped us stage the house, find the photographer, price the house, and did a great job communicating. We had a buyer within 10 days and closed on schedule!"
