John Twomey was my real estate agent for my first home purchase. Now, five years later, I’m still filled with gratitude for everything he did to make it a positive and enjoyable process, and a great investment. When I compare my experience to those of friends who have purchased a home, I only now fully appreciate how outstanding John is.
From the moment when I started exploring the idea of purchasing a home until long after I’d moved in, John was there, helping me understand the dynamics of San Francisco real estate, patiently listening to me as I identified my criteria, and guiding me around open houses throughout the city. His years of experience provided invaluable information about neighborhoods, buildings, location, risks and benefits of condos of various sizes, parking, traffic, tenants, and mortgages.
He combined invaluable analytical information such as comparative home prices, $/square foot comparisons and market trends as well as personalized recommendations to ensure that the home was right for me.
John made the entire process not only easy and stress free, but also fun and inspiring. If I didn’t love my home so much, I’d want to look for another home with John now. With all the drama and uncertainly in the housing market these days, and so many people full of regret, I feel so fortunate to have had John’s help.
Concierge service at its best! John went above and beyond with his full-service approach to taking care of us as clients. From beginning to end – listing to sale to another purchase – John offered the right level of guidance and direction each and every step of the way. While transitions can be very stressful, we actually enjoyed the process, much to John’s credit. Thank you!
I’ve known John for many years, and he is awesome! In the competitive SF market, it’s so important to work with someone who is well-known and respected in the real estate community transparent experienced attentive and kind. John is all of these things and more. From multi-unit new condo construction resale condo and single-family homes luxury property first-time or experienced buyers’ cash or financing buy or sell – John is your Realtor for life.
John’s low-key demeanor and professionalism are much appreciated. He genuinely cares about and looks after what is in his clients’ best interests and works hard on their behalf.
