John Barragan Realtor
"When we prepared to sell our home in Petaluma, we knew we wanted a realtor who would see our home as we saw it: a lovely place to build a life in a historic west side bungalow. John was that realtor, helping us to not only stage our home, but also to expertly manage our expectations around how the offers period would unfold and how the sale would proceed. John crafted the strategy to open the offer window for a short period of time to build excitement, culminating in the review of nearly a dozen bids within the first 10 days. From start to finish, we knew we were in the hands of a master, and are grateful to John for his help during the sale and transition out of our home. Go with John. You will be glad you did." - Mark Petrovic
"I have never had such a relaxing experience buying and selling a house as I did with John. He was so attentive and responsive to all requests to see houses and to any kind of question big or small. This is truly a rare trait I have not seen in my adventures in real estate. John also made himself readily available to see a house upon request...much appreciated and also rare. John also was incredible in finding the right experts..be it contractor or roof guy to inspect and give their opinion in order for us to go forward on buying our house. It was a such a relief not to have to research that myself. John was a pleasure to work with..always 2 steps ahead in anticipating everything needed. His sense of humor and easy chill vibe makes him top notch and anyone would be lucky to have him as their realtor! (Oh, and I almost forgot...John truly goes above and beyond as he even helped us wth our move!!)" - Velina
"John Barragan came highly recommended to me by friends who used him to sell their house, and I could not be more grateful them for that truly life-changing introduction. As a first time home-buyer, I was nervous about the entire process as it all felt so big and unknowable, especially in this highly competitive sellers’ market, but John put me at ease throughout. He asked all the right questions, listened and responded to my hopes, calmed my nerves, effectively and appropriately communicated with other agents, and ultimately put me into the perfect house I now am thrilled to own. I could not have asked for a better agent and companion through this process than John, and I hope all my friends will soon be in the market to buy or sell a house so that I can recommend him to them!" - Eliza Fischer
"John helped us sell our older high maintenance rental income property which was not particularly renter-friendly, and guided us in the right direction into purchasing a brand new, low maintenance home that fit our and our renters needs.He was awesome to work with and I have already recommended him to friends." - Brenda Fowler Hart
Operating with the utmost integrity, John approaches both his personal and professional lives with the same loyalty, dedication, and drive. Ask any client, family member, or friend, and they’ll tell you the same. The Sebastopol native prioritizes ethics and relationship-building above all else, so it comes as no surprise that he’s bolstered by deep community connections throughout his native soil. A Sonoma county expert in his own right, John’s area of focus extends well into to Petaluma, Sebastopol, Santa Rosa, and beyond.
A dynamic Realtor who received his license at the ripe age of 21, John segued his sharp negotiation skills into a successful business representing Miller’s Dairy and Clover Farms, extending his reach to encompass 113 accounts throughout the North Bay. Fast forward to 2002, John snapped up 12 condos in Rohnert Park and spent 15 years remodeling and managing them while simultaneously becoming an appraiser in 2006. Truth be told, John’s personal experience in real estate investing, paired with an innate knowledge of regional markets, not to mention his bilingual, Spanish-speaking background, has led him to a thriving career in real estate.
Sellers tout his ability to tactfully prepare homes, enlist staging experts and organize proactive inspections. He’s quick to devise a comprehensive marketing plan that garners maximum exposure through social media and real estate websites. John’s known to handle the most minutiae of details, remaining in constant communication through every step and lending expert negotiation skills to maximize net proceeds.
Buyers praise John’s ability to locate the perfect home within the desired criteria. The seasoned agent stays current on the ever-changing market, negotiates the lowest price and best terms, and is quick to refer clients to a lender and offer guidance as to the lowest rates and terms. His commitment to detail and knowledge of nuanced neighborhoods and school districts is central to servicing his buyers.
Imbued with a deep love for the diversity and culture of the North Bay, John had endless gratitude for his connections with friends, family and fellow Sonoma neighbors. His appreciation for open spaces and clean living runs deep. Come weekends you’ll find him exploring the outdoors with his husband, Scott. Whether hiking, working out, or road biking in the backcountry, I think you’ll find that John’s wheels are in constant motion.
