Testimonials

  • Working with Rob & John was amazing! They made the process easy and seamless. This was our first time selling a house so we didn’t know where to begin. We appreciated their sincere advice along the way.

    The best part was that our house sold within 8 days of being listed and went OVER asking! We are so thankful for the effort Rob & John put into marketing and promoting our house! We would definitely recommend working with them!

  • My wife and I worked with John Van Buskirk and we are so grateful. He taught us everything we needed to know and educated us so that we knew when we saw the house we wanted, we would recognize it. It wasn’t exactly some sort of formula; it was John being a terrific listener, teacher, and guide. John flexed with our preferred communication methods and time schedules. He answered tons of questions honestly and sincerely, never pretending to know an answer if he didn’t know, even though that was on the rarer side.

    We enjoyed playing Sherlock at open houses and viewings, deconstructing odd renovations or unusual home quirks. He treated both me and my wife with respect and dignity, which isn’t always easy to find in a sales industry. We never felt rushed or hurried into a situation.

    After successfully buying a home with him, we definitely consider John a friend. Do not hesitate to reach out to John with your real estate goals. Thanks John, we are so thankful for such wonderful assistance on our journey finding a home!
