  • John listed and sold my home

      I first met John 11 years ago when I moved from the city to the suburbs of Gladwyne. He was extremely professional and a pleasure to deal with .When I recently moved from that home I immediately thought of John and contacted him again to place my house for sale and also help me find a new townhouse. With his insight research and recommendations my house sold for well over asking price and immediately doing the broker open. Help me find a beautiful new townhome and I am very happy .

    • John listed and sold my home

        John helped us to find a wonderful home. He was extremely responsive and had an excellent knowledge of the local market.

      • I have bought and sold several properties, and the real estate professionals I have worked with have represented quite a range of quality. John represented the best of those experiences. He immediately understood what type of property and location was best suited to our family and budget, and took care to present properties that matched our needs. He knows the Main Line extremely well, which was a bonus, but even more important to me was his clear desire to match us with the best property and value. He dissuaded me from an early choice that would have captured his commission quickly, because he did not believe it was the best value I could get. When we did identify and settle on the right property, the relationship didn't end, though. John continued to provide recommendations on local services and follow up on the progress as we have renovated and moved in.

      • Due to the nature of our cross country move because of my husbands job relocation- and having never been to PA before- we needed to find an agent who could quickly and efficiently communicate with us and find us a home. John was quick to guide us to an area he felt would best suit our specific needs as a family, and prepared an extensive list of properties for us to view during our weekend trip to purchase a home. We are so happy to say that, with Johns expertise and guidance, we found a home that weekend, and made the decision to purchase it. He helped us through that experience, and also helped us throughout our initial time in the area with incredible and reliable recommendations of contractors for our extensive home renovation, places of interest to visit and explore with our family, etc. We are thankful for his expertise, his skills, and most especially, his friendship. John was such an asset during our transition and we are very grateful that he was our agent!

      • John is very knowledgeable, hard working, honest and patient. He showed us dozens of properties over a one year period. He was very helpful with lots of house hunting tips, local information, and contacts. As a foreign buyer, he made the buying process easy to understand, and was always there if we needed help. Top marks from a difficult buyer!

        - Rory and Irene Stanley
      • John is a very down to earth, no-nonsense guy which is what we appreciated when working with him. He is responsive and realistic in managing expectations for us and the seller's representative. He was always in our corner and is so knowledgeable about the area that he even knows, down to the exact location on a particular street, what properties are next to what landmarks or potentially undesirable things so we wouldn't waste our valuable time searching out things that weren't matching our wishlist. And of course he helped us find and negotiate our wonderful current home.

        - James and Kirsten McCoy
      • John was always immediately available to answer questions and offer ideas and suggestions. He suggested having the house staged. He also suggested having a video made of the property. Both of these suggestions helped sell the property.

        - Leslie Gundry
      • John was easy to work with, very honest and thorough. And, he was able to connect me to all the right people including mortgage company, insurance, title deed and others for finalizing the purchase of my new home! He did all the follow up and I never had to push.

        - Polly Dolan
      • I contacted John from my home in Ft. Lauderdale in 2010 about moving to the Main Line. John had by far the best web site; that's how I came to contact him, and I've always been glad I did. John showed us lots of houses, and he made the process of looking efficient and fun. He always prepared well--he knew all about the homes he showed us, and advised us honestly. When we finally settled on a house in the Beaupre section of Radnor Township, John helped us with the decision to buy. So there was no hesitation about whom to retain to sell that Beaupre home six years later. I asked John to help once again. This time, John represented us on the selling side; he recommended a stager who helped de-clutter our house, and made it look like I always knew it could. The result? The house sold at full asking price on the fifth showing.So there's all that, in addition to the fact that John is a great person, has a vast font of Main Line knowledge, and is just an easy person to hang out with. I would recommend him without reservation. Five big stars!

      • Big thanks to John Flanagan for helping us find the perfect home for us! John was always quick to respond to our messages, even when he was on family vacation. He always made us feel as though we were important. He made time for us to meet for house showings, very knowledgeable and guided through the process of buying and selling our home. I highly recommend John Flanagan, he's one of the best on the Main Line!

        - Marcy Siegel
      • John was our buyers agent almost 10 years ago when we bought this house, and there was no question in our minds that he was going to be our sellers agent when we put it on the market. John is extremely professional, responsive, savvy, and committed, while at the same time personable and wonderful to work with. We recommend him to all of our friends and family - without hesitation.

        - Bob and Amanda Anderson
      • John was a great partner to us. He helped us prepare our home for a quick sale and provided excellent recommendations for service providers for us to choose from - all of whom where very responsive and dependable. As we were moving out of state he also represented us at closing so we could be on our way to our next adventure.

        - Barbara Dowling
      • John helped us immensely in finding our new home. He understood what we liked and disliked and focused on homes we were interested in. Amazingly he put up with us for several months as we were very picky but in the end found us a place that was perfect.

        - Kris and Karen Limaye
      • John is the ultimate professional. He assisted us in buying our new home. He also sold our last two homes in approximately one day. He is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and detail oriented. He is also a pleasure to work with with. I would not hesitate to recommend John for any real estate transaction.

        - Andy and Robyn Ivker
      • John sold our house for more than asking price within 48 hours.I couldn't imagine working with someone who has more positive energy and could be more helpful. We needed lots of help with our move - contact with movers, with staging, with landscaping, with a handyman, with a maid service, to name several - and John gave us expert advice so we had these things taken care of professionally and quickly. Also, we need guidance with all the financial and real estate details. John was not only excellent but John was always, and I mean always, back with us immediately

        - Glenn and Teresa Russell
      • John is an amazing partner when you are making key decisions when it comes to buying or selling real estate. He was proactive, worked late nights, guided us throughout the process including remediation, drafted documents that protected us during the process and brought in legal teams, if need be. He was extremely knowledgeable and we relied him a lot since we are out of state buyer and had a whole set of different demands. We will be using John for years to come!
