I met John at an Open House a year before we were ready to buy a vacation rental property. He kept us up to date monthly on the real estate market in the Palm Springs area while we were 3000 miles away. When we decided to pull the trigger, we told him in advance when we would arrive in town, and the houses we wanted to see. Over the phone, we narrowed down neighborhoods for features desired and price points. In the course of 1 day, we saw 26 properties, made appointments for 5 of them the following day, asked detailed questions of the listing agents, built a buyer strategy, submitted the bids, negotiated offers and counter offers and had the whole ratified contract finalized before we left 6 days after we arrived. We put him through his paces and John more than met the challenge. We recommend him for any real estate purchase in the Palm Springs area.
