I really enjoyed working with John on the sale of my condo. Being my first sale, I was a bit clueless about the sellers end of the transaction. John diligently walked me through the process and explained things every step of the way. Not only was he professional, responsive, and knowledgeable, he was pleasant to talk with and fun to be around. I can't speak highly enough about my experience working with John.

I have worked closely with Marcus in helping several of our shared clients to successfully find and secure the "Home of their Dreams". He is the utmost Professional and has an innate ability to connect on a human level with his clients. If you are looking for a Realtor for Life, there is no reason to look further!

Buying my new apartment would not have happened without John; he is very proactive in getting things done and always available to answer any questions. I will definitely refer all my friends and family to him when buying property in the future!
I have bought and sold many homes with many different realtors; Marcus and his team are the BEST!!! The transaction was totally stress-free for me, which is very different from my previous experiences. They were on top of every detail. They know everyone in the real estate business in SF and they are well respected, it’s amazing how many doors that opens for a buyer in this competitive SF market. I wouldn't use any other agent.

John has a tremendous command for the SF Real estate market, and strategies to sell and purchase. I've bought and sold houses with him. Anyone looking to close a great result in a real estate transaction, I'd highly recommend engaging John for such services.

Marcus is the consummate professional, and truly understands the meaning of developing long term business relationships. He consistently demonstrates his belief in building long term relationships with partners and clients. I look forward to working with him in the future.

John helped us through multiple potential minefields in the purchase of our first home in San Francisco and later in its sale. We couldn't ask for a better team in these complex and pivotal -- and most personal -- decision processes. We are grateful for the day my husband wandered into a cafe and happened to meet John early in our SF sojourn.
Marcus is just an all-around stellar guy. In the brief six months that I knew and worked with him in a San Francisco networking group, I couldn't help but think of him as a friend and respect him as a businessman. When in his presence, it is immediately apparent that he is highly intelligent, very warm, and eager to help you however he can.
– Whit Gurley, Owner - Angled End Identity
John is the perfect realtor. He listens, always answers phone calls, responds to queries with cheerful readiness, and is an all around good guy. He and his business partner, Marcus, facilitated the purchase of a property for us in San Francisco, and made it very easy. I recommend him without reservation.

It may be a cliché, but you really do put your clients first. Whether it was negotiating with the bank or the seller, you always had our back. Your guidance helped us save several thousands of dollars in the purchase of our home. You also spent countless hours on the phone with Suzanne and I explaining the twists and turns of buying a short sale. Based on how you handled all the issues that cropped up, we can only imagine how easy it would be to have you as a realtor in a normal situation! What we were most impressed with, was the fact that virtually 100% of the time you were correct in everything from our negotiating strategy to how to structure our offer, to make it appealing to both the banks and the sellers. It became clear very early on that you had the experience and knowledge in dealing with very convoluted real estate transactions. You were very persistent in representing us to the seller’s agent and it was obvious at the end that she was leaning on you for guidance to complete the deal. While we know many realtors, based on this experience of representing us, you will be the only one we recommend to our friends in the future. We can honestly say that without your expertise, we would still be house hunting. This is one time where we should be buying you a bottle of Champagne to celebrate, not the other way around.

John is ethical, moral and a breath of fresh air in a highly competitive industry. He is honest, knowledgeable and works his butt off for you. Highly recommend.
