  • John helped me buy a home

      My husband and I were so lucky to find John. We are recently married and in our 20s, trying to find a forever home in Folsom. We didn't know much about buying a house, the process, or the market other than checking Zillow. We worked with John for about 2-3 months looking at properties and put an offer in on two houses before we found "the one". John coached us through the offers, even when my husband and I wanted to go lower. John gave his best recommendation and advice, but ultimately let us make the decision on what we wanted to offer. He was extremely responsive, and available whenever we needed him. He made his schedule work to fit ours. The house that we purchased has 7 other offers, and John was spot on with the price and contract negotiation to help us get the house! As a young couple with a budget, looking for a forever home instead of just a starter home, John helped us through everything and made sure we got the house we really wanted. We highly recommend him to anyone that is looking for a realtor in the area. Thank you, John!

    • John listed and sold my home

        John was a pleasure to work with. He sold the condo for full price within 2 weeks. He worked on his own to re-hab the property as I am out of the area. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

      • John,Bruni and I want to thank you for your help in the sale of our home. Your expertise, counsel, and assistance every step of the way helped turn what could have been a stressful time into a very pleasant experience for us. From helping us set the price, to the staging, marketing, negotiations, due diligence and closing, you were there every step of the way, always available with an answer to every question and a solution to every problem. I absolutely can't imagine a real estate transaction going any smoother than ours did, thanks to you. It was truly a pleasure working with you!Steve & Bruni Graham Seller El Dorado Hills.

      • John Hayes is an excellent agent. He helped us sell our home in Nov. of 2015 and then buy our new home in Jan. of 2016. He is very knowledgeable of the El Dorado Hills area and how to help buyers and sellers understand all the paperwork involved. He is very professional, friendly, and answered all our calls immediately with kindness and knowledge. He takes all the stress out of buying and selling a home. We have already recommended him to friends and if we ever decide to move again, he will definitely be our agent. Thanks John,

      • John is fabulous! I was referred to John, by friends whom he had just helped to find their new dream home. My friend is very particular, so I knew if he was impressed enough to refer him to me, he had to be excellent. I was losing my faith in the whole process. I had already been through 3 agents & 3 offers. The last agent was absolutely awful. The home search was a bit challenging as our budget was kind of small. To me it is very important to feel you can trust the people you are working with to have your best interests at heart as well as know the ins & outs of the job. Right from our first meeting, I was impressed. I could tell he knew his stuff & put all my fears at ease. He immediately got together a list of potentials to look through. He took the time to know exactly what was important to me & sent me only potentials that met those expectations. He would text or call me right back with each question & I had many! He even had to go out of town briefly but even with the time difference & distance, He was right on top of everything. After having searched for so long, when we got close to the accepted offer, I was tempted to just take whatever I could get but he truly wanted the best for me & made sure that I received the best deal possible. He was right on top of getting all the documents to me quickly via whatever mode I had available at the time to speed the process along. He coordinated all the details between my lender, the title company & the sellers agent to make sure everything happened even faster than we had expected, because I had to move that weekend in order to have help. John has such knowledge of the area, the process, the in and outs of the market & even what red flags to watch out for which is especially important with all the flipped homes on the market made to look nice on the outside. Having the right person on your side makes all the difference with anything you do in life, so If you want the best then you need to have John as your agent! He not only got me a great deal, in a great neighborhood he took into account my needs & found us a home with great parks nearby. I was truly blessed to have been referred to John! If ever I have to move again I will not consider anyone else because he is the BEST!

      • We originally had another realtor who we did not care for, then we had a friend refer John and we are so happy we met him and had him as our realtor. Not only was he knowledgable but he was caring and listened. He knew exactly what we wanted and found our house that fit our family and a place where we all could call home. He pointed out things that we did not notice about some houses and was very involved in our search, and that made it real easy for us. He got us the best deal and made sure everything was taken care of so there was no stress at all. This was my second time buying a house and the first one had a horrible searching/buying experience, but with John he made it a great experience. I will always come back and use John as my realtor as well as refer him to anyone that is interested in buying a house.

      • John, exceeded all our expectations while helping us sell our house in Roseville. He is very knowledgeable about the area real estate market and helped us get top dollar for our house. John was very responsive, patient and honest when responding to our questions. John was an excellent negotiator and it was always clear that he was looking after our best interests. I would recommend John to anyone that wants to sell their house, John will get the job done.
