We found John in an advertisement and he helped me find an apartment that worked out great. He also was helping me find a home because I knew that I did not want to be in the apartment for a year. John always kept me up to date on houses and would give me ones to look at online just about every other week. He has a wonderful website where you can look at all the houses with pictures and it is very detailed and organized. John did a wonderful job with helping me find the perfect home for me, he went above and beyond and I feel that he truly cares about his customers and it shows. I would recommend John Backer to my friends and anyone who is looking to buy/sell a house because he is a wonderful agent and will do everything he can to meet his customers needs. Thanks to John I have a beautiful home that I love and he is the one that made it happen :)
He consistently kept me informed thru each step of the process.
He pointed out details during the process of home-shopping and home-buying so that I was confident that I was making the best decisions and going into the process fully prepared.
He was knowledgeable and willing to show us homes in a, more than reasonable, timely manner. He was patient with us and his opinions and suggestions were very useful for us first time home buyers.
I was impressed by the fantastic service i recieved, and i loved the fact that John was available at all times. He was very enthusiastic about his job and i would say that he enjoys it; he truly went above and beyond to help us settle into our home. All in All John truly has the technology advantage - he even created a website for our business How many Realtors could or would build you a website? :]
Backer was very patient and tried to explain things so I could understand and follow the progress of the sale of our property. He was always warm, friendly and very approachable. He referred several contractors to me, and offered me assistance with other resources. He was also very consistent about his availability to answer questions and keep me apprised at all times.
We looked at many houses, then bought the first one he showed us. He was also helpful recommending a good carpet cleaning company, termite inspection, roofing, and HVAC company (inspection and minor maintenance - no problems with the house).
He helped us tremendously right out the gate. I is very knowledgeable and informative with any questions or concerns we had. He is aggressive when needed and very open minded with your wants or needs. Any time we needed to do a viewing or had questions he was always at our service without any delays.
Buying a home is stressful, but he made it easy. I never felt like I was being 'sold to' or condescended, as I've noticed is a problem with other agents. His down-to-earth realism and kind honesty really helped me feel comfortable during the process. If you're looking for someone who will be your biggest advocate and who isn't afraid to tell it like it is (nicely), then John's your guy. He has earned my trust, and I intend to go to him for my next real estate transaction.
As a first time home buyer i was nervous and really had no idea how to purchase a house, but John made my home buying experience a good one. He guided me every step of the way, always available to answer my questions and ease my concerns. John is patient, knowledgeable, reliable, thorough and an excellent negotiator. I would highly recommend him to others looking to buy or sell their home.
With John on our side, we sold our home in just over 50 days and within $4K of our asking price. John was very knowledgeable and always made himself available to us throughout the selling process. Additionally, he used the latest technology to advertise our home to the masses. Whether you are buying, selling, or renting, I highly recommend you retain John Backer as your agent.
