Read below to see what my clients have to say about our services!

John assisted me in my first and second apartment building purchases. After a very successful transaction on an 18 unit building near Piedmont Ave in Oakland, John identified a fabulous 4 plex in the Montclair Hills area of Oakland.
The units are condo approved, each with a private deck and view of San Francisco and the Golden Gate bridge. They are unique units with great rents, and I could not have found this property without John's hard work and expertise.
Highly recommended!
I am looking forward to working with John on additional properties this year, and I can't wait to see what other great opportunities he will present to us.
I can think of a  no better advisor (I was a first time investment property buyer) to guide you through the very complicated process of purchasing an apartment building.

We were searching for a home in Lafayette, and John helped us to find the perfect home. He has been available to us after our move in for everything first time home buyers need. He has helped with finding the right repairs person, contractors to fix our driveway, and even the company to re-do our hardwood floors.

We couldn't be happier with his service, and we would recommend John to anyone looking for a home in Lamorinda.

I have been working with John to sell my duplex, and he has shown me how to increase my rents, within the allowable limits. This has added over $55,000 in value to my property. He was firm in advising me to do what was best to sell my property at the highest possible price. He also helped hire and supervise the landscaping and painting that needed to be done to make my property the "best it could be" I could not be more pleased with his advice and counsel.

John listed and sold my four-plex in Oakland (near Grand Lake and the Rose Garden). He did everything, went above and beyond to get a complex transaction done.
I couldn't be more pleased, and I would reccommend John to anyone who is looking to buy or sell an investment property anywhere in the East Bay.
John's knowledge of this market, and his experience as an owner of apartment buildings made this process so much easier and less stressful that I had imagined.

John has helped me find a place for my dad who is 70 years old and single. I needed his total costs to be similar to what he is currently paying for his one (1) bedroom rental apartment in Lafayette. John quickly became an expert on Rossmoor, and found a two (2) bedroom condo that is fantastic.This condo is so perfect for my dad. An extra bedroom that he can use as an office, with a private balcony overlooking open space!
My dad's mortgage, property tax, and HOA dues are almost identical to what he was paying in rent for a small, not updated apartment. 
My father couldn't be happier, and he is moving in now. 
John did everything we could think and more.  We live on the east coast and having someone like John help us was a tremendous relief. 
He treated my dad like family and even helped with recommending the painting, carpet and moving companies. 
You are truly in "good hands" with John with any home or condo in Lamorinda.
Thank you for all your hard work-John. We really appreciate it!

We have been working with John on our property in Lafayette. He guided us to offering the best price, and it was accepted within 2 days. This was a substantial discount to the asking price (over 20% lower than asking price!), but John knew the market better than the listing agent, and he was able to articulate to the seller's why this was a fair price. We are so pleased with our purchase, and John had been there each and every step of the way.
