“I’ve been buying and closing loans for over 37 years and can count on my hand the number of times a broker has made a significant contribution that changed the outcome of a transaction. From the start, if it wasn’t for John pushing us to come up in price, working thru the timing of closing, and just navigating both parties, and staying involved on a daily basis, I know this deal would have never closed. Thank you, John, none of us would be here without your hard work and efforts.”

very knowledgeable about the marketplace. We engaged him to sell our property

been happier with the execution. John’s years of experience in the industry
show in his market knowledge and ability to steer potential buyers and sellers
in your direction."
"I wanted to thank you for your assistance in purchasing 5455 Inglewood Blvd in Los Angeles. This off market purchase was extremely well executed, and your assistance in structuring acquisition terms that allowed us to realize value by ensuring that the property was almost fully leased before purchase was extremely helpful. I look forward to doing another transaction together.
"Lots of agents can get your property sold, but you will not find very many that offer the high level of comprehensive experience like John Swartz. From start-to- finish he was available and helpful in guiding us through the sales process in a seamless manner. At the onset he told us his plan and the various scenarios that may unfold including ways to progressively move forward during setbacks. We were extremely pleased with his marketing strategy and implementation. We would gladly refer John to others.—Valerie Hayes
“John was a pleasure to work with throughout the sale process for our building at 11747 Mayfield Ave. We were seeking a premium price, despite not having completed the soft story retrofit work, and he was able to produce multiple offers to get us to where we needed to be. His consistent follow up, smooth coordination with our management team to show the property, and understanding of how to properly convey the value of our vacant units to the market, allowed us to have a successful sale. I would highly recommend John and we will certainly be working on many more transactions together in the future.”
