★★★★★ "John is a top notch agent and all around great guy. We moved to Austin a year ago and started looking around for the right neighborhood and right home. John worked with us for a handful of months to narrow down the neighborhood and showed us over a dozen homes during that time. Once we found the right home, he helped us put in a competitive offer and lock it down. If you can secure John as your agent, I wouldn't look any further, he's great at what he does and does it all with a smile. Thank you John!" - Peter
★★★★★ "My wife and I couldn't be happier with our new (and first!) home purchase, and I don't think we would’ve been able to get into the home we fell in love with if it wasn't for John’s incredible guidance and assistance throughout the process. We began our home search before the holidays thinking that we wouldn't find a home that we loved until after the New year. Naturally, we found a home just days before Christmas. In addition, we were heading out of the country for two weeks at the beginning of January, Even with the time crunch, John was able to get all of our ducks in a row, allowing us to enjoy the holidays and our time out of the country.It was such a relief knowing that everything was under control. As first-time home buyers, we were intimidated by the process, and John made it fun and enjoyable. We can’t recommend him enough for help with buying a home!" - Kerry
★★★★★ "As a first time homebuyer - I had TONS of questions and was quite anxious about the whole process. John was extremely patient and very knowledgeable - happy to walk me through any/all questions I had and very thorough in explaining everything to me. With the Austin home market being as hot as it is - John was always quick to react and respond, knowing timing was everything. He always proved to have my best interests at heart - being open and honest with me about things I may or may not like about a particular property, or things to consider. John is extremely professional, approachable and down to earth. Someone that would tell it to you straight- and that takes pride in doing the best job he can in representing you. I would absolutely recommend John to anyone looking to buy or sell a home." - Jennifer
★★★★★ "John is a sincere, knowledgable, very hard working and an honest broker. I've owned over 25 properties and have dealt with many agents/brokers. John is one of the finest Ive ever worked with. He is genuine and always puts my interests above his own. He never exhibits any greed when it comes to worrying about his commission like most agents/brokers. This is a very rare trait and I feel lucky to have found him. He is also very good with communication. I rarely wait more than a few hours for a returned phone call. I give John Dunham my highest recommendation." - Joe
★★★★★ "We loved working with John. He listened to our needs and set us up with an amazing opportunity. Along with his expertise of the market and surrounding neighborhoods comes his connections in every possible related field. He not only found us a home to purchase but connected us with a lender and a property management company. Fantastic Experience!" - Rachel
★★★★★ "I am so happy that we worked with John to buy our first home in Austin. We ended up closing on the first home that we made an offer on with John. He helped us find exactly what we wanted in a neighborhood that he knows very well, and helped us make the right offer that lead to a successful closing. We're very happy to have our house and very happy that John and his team made the process feel so effortless. Buying a first home is tough because there's so much to learn, but he was with us every step of the way and answering all of our questions as new home buyers. I would highly recommend John to other Austin home buyers!" - Conrad
★★★★★ "We used John as our realtor to sell our home in Brentwood and then buy our new home in Great Hills. John was amazing. We had a bad experience with our previous realtor, and John relieved all of our concerns! He was super involved throughout the whole process making sure we understood everything with the selling process and got us a great price for our house! In finding our new home, John was really helpful with the communication with the seller and making sure we were getting a fair deal. Overall, the process was really easy and quick thanks to John and his team! We will definitely be recommending this team to any one we know that needs a realtor in the future!" - Dani
★★★★★ "John is truly an expert in his field. We have used his services to buy and sell homes over the last 10+ years and come away impressed every time. John knows the Austin market well and helped us find exactly what we were looking for. He is fair, honest, and the person you want in your corner when it's time for negotiations." - Shelley
★★★★★ "My wife and I were extremely pleased working with John and his team at Juice Real Estate. He assisted us the entire way through our sale. John worked with us in order to renovate our long-term rental property, providing his expertise and reliable network of vendors in order to turn our property around quickly and make it ready to sell. Even though we live in another state and weren't there in Austin for any of the process, John made it work just like we were right there in Austin. Our home was under contract in under a week, and the entire closing was extremely smooth and by the book! John was always accessible and ready to answer any questions we had along the way. We will definitely use John in the future for our real estate needs in Austin." - Joe
★★★★★ "John has now worked with my wife and I on the purchase and sale of our home. It's no coincidence. We needed someone who we knew would be thorough, trustable, and reliable. He quickly sold our home during a slower period in the Austin market (yes they exist), and he did so by being tactical and diligent with the interested buyers. I have recommended John (and his company) to many friends and will continue to do so! I no longer live in Austin, but I still call John with real estate questions. Now I just need him to move to my current city to help me find a house here." - Martin
★★★★★ "We initially worked with John Dunham of Juice Homes about 11 years ago when we purchased some homes in Austin as an investment. Within the last year and a half, we sold three of the homes through John. He has been incredible to work with. John is always honest, responsive, professional and patient. Buying or selling a home is a huge financial and emotional investment and John takes this to heart.The most amazing, over the top part is that we are out of state and when we were preparing the houses to be sold, John took care of EVERYTHING. He hooked us up with flooring contractors, gardeners, a painter, handyman, someone to stage the place and worked with the HOA (home owners association). He met with the contractors and previous property managers and arranged the timing for everyone to get into the house all while keeping us is in the loop and ensuring that everything met the standards of a very picky HOA. John took care of things that normally would have fallen on us. He made the transaction so smooth and seamless. We are currently buying a home in California and I am stunned with how difficult it is. After working with John Dunham on the purchases and sales of the Austin homes, I thought to myself "no problem, we've been in the real estate market before." It would be a piece of cake. It's more like mud pie.Thank you for everything John, you made what could have been a very trying process so easy! If we ever end up in the Austin real estate market again, I'll be calling you John!!!"" - Briana
★★★★★ "We have had the wonderful opportunity to work with John multiple times. Every single time, he has found a perfect home for us. My husband and I being Architects, we are quite picky when it comes to choosing the style of a home we like. He has always been very patient and showed us homes that he thought would fit our style and budget. He will advice you and guide you very well during your negotiation phase while making an offer. He will have your best interest in mind and communicate well with you in answering all your questions in a timely manner. When the house is in the option period, he will suggest some great inspectors and help you with further negotiation if needed (after evaluating the inspection report). We can't brag enough about how clear his thought process is. He is surely one of the best realtors we have dealt with and would surely go with him for our future buying / selling a home. - Thank you SO much John for all your help." - Shannon M.
