"John is a professional all the way around. Integrity is how I describe the way he dealt with us during our sale. If you want spot-on advice from a veteran and pro, look no further...he's your guy."

"John is the absolute best in Westlake Village! As first-time homebuyers moving from Beverly Hills to the Westlake Village area, we could honestly not have had a better experience! We met John through a family referral and were pleased with the entire process. He was incredibly patient with us, understood our needs and wants and he completely delivered. John made sure to educate us on the market and show us a variety of homes in respective neighborhoods as we were new to the area and unsure of where we wanted to plant our roots. I appreciated that John was not pushy nor salesy and felt like more of a friend who truly had our best interest at heart. I had met with other realtors before and was turned off. John just felt right! We could trust him and he made the process exciting and fun. When we found our dream home John had our back through the whole experience, explaining everything step by step and giving us the guidance when we needed it. It was such a smooth and easy process and we couldn't be happier! One thing I love about working with John is that he ensured to check in and keep in touch with us several months after closing...he even stopped by to check on our renovations. Most realtors are one and done - John has built a strong relationship with us that I know will last. When (and if!) we plan to move, John will be the first person we contact. I highly recommend enlisting and trusting John for your home buying and selling needs."

"John is a highly effective real estate salesperson. I've worked with John on several new project launches...Resort at Squaw Creek, Trump Waikiki and Ritz-Carlton Kapalua. He's always been a top-selling "closing" agent as he exudes care, trust, and knowledge. John's work ethic is tireless, which gives him the ability to work with a large number of clients at one time and give each and every one the same great customer service they need in order to make a buying decision. John is also highly effective at strategizing sales and marketing ideas and maintains great relationships with other industry agents and connectors to buyers/investors. I would highly recommend John for any project launch team." - Corinne

"John, I also want to thank you personally for everything you have done. I really appreciate you going above and beyond in all respects to make this process smooth and easy. " - Jonathan, Buyer

"John is the reason our home sold swiftly, easily, and for a better asking than we’d originally hoped for. He’s become a trusted friend, as well as a superb agent, who we were thrilled to have representing us.His affable style, paired with superb attention to detail and knowledge of the market, and our area in particular, took the stress and headache right out of the process, and made it an exciting, expertly managed event. Most highly recommended." - Geoffrey, Seller

"Loved working with John. Love his personality. He was the consummate professional. He responded promptly to all my questions, and he was able to put my mind at ease on all issues related to my purchase. He followed thru on everything, and i really enjoyed the process of buying an expensive second home." - Eric

"John represented me in listing and selling my Calabasas home. Whatever I needed he was on it like lightning. His demeanor was that of a gentleman, never flinched through the sometimes conflictive escrow process and truly wanted to help me achieve the highest price for my home. Six stars John!" - Carol J Orourke
