Dedicated, experienced, knowledgable and caring! John really went the extra mile to help us close on our dream home. John was always available to answer questions, despite us being halfway around the world when we started the house hunting process. We were worried that we would not be competitive given that we were purchasing using a VA loan and had heard horror stories from friends about long waits and failed bids, but with John's help we were able to make a successful offer and close in record time. John's hard work and dedication made our experience seamless and hassle-free. If you're looking for a great realtor in the DC Metro area, look no further!
It was truly amazing working with John as we searched for our first home. As 1st-time homebuyers in a really competitive market (and during the peak of COVID), we needed a realtor who really knew the market and above all was honest throughout the entire process. John is extremely knowledgeable about homes and took the time to point out all of the negatives and positives about each home we saw. And we saw many! John was always flexible and available to show us homes, even as we at times decided to expand the neighborhoods we were interested in. In this market, it can be a bit discouraging, especially for a first-time homebuyer, but John was confident that he would find the right home for us within our budget. We are so grateful for his encouraging perspective because in the end we did find our perfect home in our desired neighborhood. When it came time to negotiate our offer and the terms of our contract, John was adamant in ensuring we would walk away feeling like we got a great deal.
John has helped guide us through three transactions over the last four years, and I can tell you without hesitation that he is a pro's pro. Perhaps the hardest working realtor in the DC area, the man is a home buying/selling machine. In addition to a tireless work ethic, John is one of the most thorough, knowledgeable, and ethical people in an industry where these qualities are in short-supply. If you're even thinking about buying or selling a home in this crazy market you would do yourself an enormous favor to put John's number in your phone immediately.
Saying that John and Jeff went above and beyond what was required as our agents and even what we expected from them is an absolute understatement. Even within the midst of the craziest housing market that top real estate professionals have EVER seen, John made sure that we knew he would not give up on our journey even when the odds didn't seem like they were in our favor. From the moment, we stepped into a home, we would be educated about the flooring, the structure, the maintenance, the value and age of appliances and if a home were truly even worth our time or money. This team is the ONLY team I would ever recommend when searching for a home. They will be a part of the rest of my family's home-buying and investment property searches for years to come!
As first-time home buyers, my partner and I didn't know much about the home buying process or how atypically hot the market was as we began our search. John Young and Jeff Lim-Sharpe provided exceptional guidance and around the clock service to make sure we got to see any of the many houses we were interested in. They pointed out exactly what to look for when walking through homes so that we could make informed decisions about their condition. When it came to submitting an offer, they gave us quality advice based on their decade+ experience in the area so that we could make best offers possible. Although the market was difficult, they ended up helping us find the perfect home. We couldn't have done it without them!
I had previously worked with John on selling my condo, and he just helped me purchase a home in this incredibly crazy market, along with Jeff Lim-Sharpe. John and Jeff are an amazing team. They work tirelessly and seem to know everything about everything! This market is difficult, but they helped get us into the perfect house and made sure we stayed in a place we were comfortable with pricewise. I can't imagine that anyone does a better job than these two. Highly recommend to anyone trying to buy or sell a home!
John is the kind of realtor you want on your side anytime let alone in a very difficult market. John and his partner are extremely knowledgeable, friendly, patient, and truly want what's best for their clients. As a buyer they care more about you finding the right home than they do about their bottom line. They don't want you to buy any home, they want you to buy the right home for you and will work diligently and patiently to find you that home. When you find the home you want they are expert negotiators to get the deal done for you. In a very difficult market we only wound up putting in two offers on homes before having one accepted. When we finally found the one we wanted John knew how to get us the best chance of having our offer accepted. He is a wonderful person who you absolutely want on your side when buying a home. If we ever sell this place I know just who I need to call.
John and Jeff were amazing! They made the entire stressful process of buying and selling a house very easy, which was not a simple task in this crazy market. We were with another agent for 6 months, we put 4 offers on 4 different houses and didnt get one. We met John and immediately started working with him. He is a true professional. After one month of looking with John and Jeff for houses, we found our dream home, put in an offer and actually got the house at way under the appraised value. We got our dream home at an amazing price. We closed on our new house in June 2021 and sold our old house, with John and Jeff in July 2021. They got us an amazing offer within 4 days. Their connections and knowledge are unbeatable. We highly recommend working with them.
John, was the best real estate agent I ever worked with! I have purchased 5 houses and have sold 4. He really knows how to seal the deal. No doubt, he was working for me, the purchaser. He made sure the purchase process was the least stressful for me in the crazy market at only $5K above asking price. Unheard of during these times! I work for the U.S. Government and I will recommend John, to any chance I get.
I've worked with John previously and did not hesitate to work with him again. John helped me find renters for this place in the past and helped me find a buyer this time around. He advised me on what to do and expect as a seller during COVID19 and followed up immediately when we were able to list the property.
