More about John Walsh

**** Just named " 2017 Top 20 Under 40, Rising Stars in Real Estate" by the Long Island Board of Realtors!!**** My name is John Walsh. I am the luckiest 35 year old in the world! I have an amazing little boy's named Brady and Aiden. I just recently married the love of my life! I have lived on Long Island for my whole life. There's just something about it that will never let me leave. I love the fact that on Long Island we have a perfect mix of hustle and bustle along with still being able to hear birds chirp and being able to go to the beach or a park whenever you want. Before I got into Real Estate I worked in the Finance Industry. I have found that having that background gives me a leg up in negotiations and market research. Recently I was asked by Zillow to be a guest speaker at the Zillow Premier Agent Summit in Huntington. I had the chance to share some of my best ...

John Walsh's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with
John Walsh

    • We know we made an excellent decision when we hired John to sell our home. We ended up listing with John because our research led us to believe that he is a pro who sell a lot of property in our area - and they are. He knows the local market and it's history, which is critical to properly setting the listing price and determining the selling strategy. We're really glad that we didn't waste our time and money on amateurs when it didn't cost any more to work with professionals, and we got great results.

    • John Walsh was not only a polite, enthusiastic guy, but a great realtor! I wanted to sell my house quickly, and he did that! He gave me his business card at Marshalls (overheard me talking about selling my house) and next thing you know he agrees to follow me home to give me an idea of how much and how fast he thinks he can sell it. Next thing you know, his homemade sign was placed on my lawn and 8 weeks later my house was sold! I knew it was fate from the moment I Met him!

    • I had come upon John by chance. I originally was looking to rent a condo because my landlord had unfortunately passed away and we needed to find a new place to live. Upon meeting John, he assured me I would have a good experience with his company. I had originally wanted to rent a condo. After searching for some in the areas I had wanted and my price range, John had asked if I had thought about buying a condo. He was there for me every step of the way. There were many ups and downs during the process of buying my new home but John was there for me every step of the way. He always answered my many questions. After this process I felt I have found a new friend. He was wonderful and everyone should work with him and ask for him

      - Zillow
    • Outstanding from start to finish. When we first meet john for a look at a house in islip, we knew from there that we wanted to work with him. Active, honest, and persistent are just a few of the great qualities that made working with john a great experience for us as we purchased our first home. John is top notch and his future clients should be grateful to work with such a dedicated and motivated agent. We wish John the best of luck and will/would recommend him to anybody we knew in the market to buy a house.

      - Zillow
    • John is always available to answer questions and concerns. He is sensitive to our needs and honest about what is going on in the market. He understands our neighborhood and gives great advice that would help sell our home. I would recommend him to others.

      - Zillow
    • John is a true professional. I highly recommend him. He guided us thru the entire process seamlessly and we couldn't be happier. This being the first time we sold a home we had a ton of questions. I started feeling bad we contacted john so much. He was always polite and quick to answer any questions we had and eased all of our concerns. Thanks John and great job!!

      - Zillow
    • John has a special quality of listening to what you are looking for! He is very professional and we are still working with him. He has shown us some great properties and made some very good suggestions..still narrowing down options. Highly recommend his services.

      - Zillow
    • Told John what I needed and he found something for me right away. The whole process went smooth and quickly. John has excellent knowledge of Long Island, answered his phone at all hours whenever I had a question and has solid negotiating skills. You can't go wrong with him.

      - Zillow
    • John Walsh was extremely helpful in assisting my wife and I with locating our present residence. John was very easy to contact at all times whenever a concern or question of ours would arise. Also, john is extremely knowledgable with all the processes that occur when looking for a property. I would recommend john to anyone who is in the market for real estate.

      - Zillow
    • Our experience with getting responses from Zillow was not a positive one until we contacted John. Prior to contacting him we were interested in two other houses and sent an email to those agents. Needless to say 3 months later we are still waiting for a response. We looked at a few houses in the East Islip area on a Wednesday night sent an email to John and the next morning at 8AM there was a response from him. He listened to our needs and wants and didn't insist on showing us something we weren't interested in. On Saturday he made appointments at 3 houses. By Saturday night we made an offer on a house which we are awaiting our closing at the end of June. He is available 24/7. He takes all your concerns and questions seriously. We would highly recommend him to anyone if your are buying or selling. He works hard to get the job done. You will not be disappointed.

      - Zillow
    • John is a great real estate agent that is knowledgeable and hard working. My fiance and I are currently working with him in the process of purchasing our first home. We were very nervous about this because we have no experience or knowledge of the real estate market. John has been great guiding us along the way. He is extremely responsive, always returns calls or texts very quickly. When I have spoken to other friends and family that have purchased homes, they are completely shocked at how simple John has made this process for us. He found us the perfect home and we can never thank him enough for that!!

      - Zillow
    • I contacted John through Zillow to see a house he had listed. He quickly responded letting me know that the property was essentially sold but he knew of a few similar properties he could show my wife and myself. He showed us a few homes noting what we liked and disliked about them and targeted homes he thought would meet our needs. He also kept track of the houses we liked but felt were not worth the asking price. When one of those houses had a significant enough reduction in price he contacted me and let me know. After some discussion, we put in an offer and after a little negotiation the offer was accepted. John was with us every step of the way offering advice and direction. He was extremely helpful, punctual, knowledgeable and great to work with.

      - Zillow
    • I'm a investor and John has been working with me in finding great deals. He is very ambitious and gets back to me promptly whenever I need him. He is very familiar with the Long Island area and knows his comps well. He comes in with great ideas on how to raise the value of a home. He is going to be listing a new purchase for me in the near future. Would Highly recommend him!

    • Absolute Best Choice. A1 Service. I was a first time home buyer. He was amazing thought-out my entire process. Buying a home was one of the most stressful things Ive done. At the time I was a full-time student and full time employee. He understood that and took complete control, which I am immensely great for

      - Zillow
    • As First time Home buyers, I have to say that it was a really stressful process. We have to thanks John Walsh for provided us the local knowledge and for being very responsive. It was an absolute pleasure working with John Walsh. He was extremely patient, easy to work with

      - Zillow
    • John was very helpful to us when buying our home. He made the home purchasing process easier. He always responded quickly to my questions and concerns and tried his best to resolve issues that came up. He often sent information of events happening in the town where I was buying my house.

      - Zillow
    • John took the time to schedule as many homes for us to see that were within our budget. He has excellent understanding of what a buyer is looking for. He is available at all times. He is very professional and looks out for the clients best interest. We are first time home buyers and we highly recommend John and hope to use him again in the future.

    • John was able to help us navigate through all the issues that arose while selling my mothers home. He went above and beyond to get her the best price and resolve any issues so she could feel comfortable with this life changing event.

      - Zillow
    • John was amazing from start to finish! From the start we knew we wanted to work with him. When I requested a call from a broker on a house that I was interested on Zillow in he called me within the first 30 minutes to discuss and was extremely knowledgeable not only on the ones we saw in Zillow but any available houses in the areas of where we were looking. Any house I brought up to him that I was interested in he had a response about each and every house right then and there and was extremely knowledgeable. We explained what we were looking for and what were the must haves in the house and what we did not want and only showed us houses that were worth showing. He did not waste our time trying to upsell us into a home beyond our means. When he took us out he did not try any sales tactics or make houses appear to be better or worse then what they were; he was very laid back let them speak for themselves and allowed us to make our own opinions without him pushing us in any direction. He was more of a guide then a salesman. I never felt pressured or felt like I was getting pitched on a sale like most agents would make you feel. He was a genuine and honest person. He responded with urgency every time I reached out and sent him houses we liked. John was never off the clock and would send me houses that he thought I was interested in at all hours of the day and night which I very much appreciated. He really never stopped working and was always there. for anything we needed. If it wasn't for John, I wouldn't have bought the house I did because at first i was not interested in seeing it but he knew what we liked and changed my mind to see it and he was absolutely right! I trust his opinion, his knowledge, and his overall concern of our well being on the purchase we were about to make. john was not only our agent in the process as my husband and I truly came to know him and consider him to be a friend now. You definitely want him in your corner as he makes the process stress free and easy!

      - Zillow
    • John's service was simply amazing!! We saw a property that we were interested in & we had sent a request to John for additional information... He contacted us within minutes with the info we were seeking. His prompt, efficient & knowledgeable service made us stay with him throughout the entire process. This is what separates him from the rest. The transaction was incredibly smooth, his advice was always on point and he managed our expectations to a "T." He worked all hours of the day to make the home tours, offers, acceptance and escrow a smooth and easy process. His goal was to get us into a home & neighborhood that "we want". We valued his advice and all of the factual information he provided so we could make the proper informed decisions. We highly recommend John to anyone looking to purchase a home. Thanks to him, we now have our dream home!

      - Zillow
    • John Walsh is the best! Through word of mouth I found him, and I was looking for an apartment. Although my boyfriend and I are young and were only looking for an apartment vs. a house, I really appreciated how he took me seriously. He came dressed professionally, he came prepared, he gave us a tour as if it was a mansion. Well guess what the place was perfect for my boyfriend and I. We love our apartment John found for us. This is a great milestone in our lives. Thank you John and Galaxy for taking care of us and your great customer service skills. I will only be going through John and Galaxy for when it is time for us to buy our home!

      - Zillow
    • John is the absolute best. We couldn't have been happier working with him. I have to call him our agent soul mate. Every other person we worked was annoying and pushy. John was a pleasure to work with and came up with amazing results. He was incredibly knowledgeable, responsive and helped us every step of the way. Can't write enough good things about him.

      - Zillow
    • John is amazing! My husband and I were purchasing out first home and we had a few very specific requirements. We needed to make sure that we not only found a house we loved, but also a place that had room for my father in law. John listened to all of our needs and the price range we wanted to be in and showed us only houses he knew would fit out needs. We couldn't be happier with the great job John did and how easy he was to work with. He made the stress of buying a house, especially a first house, very painless!

      - Zillow
    • I have to say John was such an amazing realtor he became like family he was there everyday making sure he showed us every house he thought we would be interested until he knew we found something he is so kind heart of gold and I would recommend him to anyone cause I know they would be completely satisfied with him and the results!

      - Zillow
    • The process of purchasing a new home, your very first home can be overwhelming. With a new baby on the way I was worried house hunting was going to be stressful but I was wrong. Thanks to John finding the perfect home for my family was a wonderful experience. His knowledge, work ethic, engaging personality, honesty and availability made all my worries quickly disappear. John made it his priority to find us the perfect home. He was very professional, organized and able to educate us on the housing market. His passion for Realestate and his true concern about our priorities and goals made the entire process simply enjoyable. After finding our dream home John was able to recommend a reputable lawyer, home inspector, and advise us through each step of the way. John started out as our realtor but in the end felt like a true friend. We are ecstatic to be in our beautiful home with our new baby and could not thank John enough for going above and beyond!!!!!!

    • John masterfully positioned our house to sell, and sell fast (1 week). John's top 5 qualities, in my opinion are, communication, strategy, honesty, diligent, and intelligent. When selecting the right real estate partner for our house we migrated to John, the glowing reviews, much like this one, prove that this is the most qualified person for the job. Everyone was/is right! You WANT & NEED a person on your side to guide you through the entire process and point you in the right direction. We found his honesty refreshing and his blunt point of view about the pros/cons that will inevitably come with every transaction. All his advice was spot on, listen to him and you too will reap the rewards of a sale or purchase. We were provided with direction at all points starting day one. Staging the house, listing the house on all MLS's, describing the house, highlighting all its best features, and providing a schedule for showings (private and public), was extremely helpful to both sides. We as sellers were prepared ahead of time and the potential buyers were provided with a stress free environment to enjoy the space and envision a life in the house. I really enjoyed seeing the Zillow view count and saves climb every single day. That gave us an indication that the correct buzz was resonating well in the market and our house stood out. Hands down, the experience was better than I ever thought, the end result was a sale and the final price was perfect for all involved. We were so happy with everything. Thank you, John. You're my real estate agent for life! P.S. John responds quickly to text, calls, emails.. basically any method of communication. Even if you reach out to him at odd times at night during off business hours. It's a perk and a luxury. That being said I kept it to a minimum, this hard working man deserves a nap sometimes.

      - Zillow
    • John helped us to purchase our first home. From the start he was great. He showed us homes that were all in the price range we requested in the areas we were looking to buy. He was so patient and very knowledgeable with negotiating the best deal for our new home. We couldn't have found our wonderful new home without him.

      - ZIllow
    • We couldn't ask for a better person than John Walsh to help us find our first home. He was focused on helping us finding a perfect home that would make us happy for a long time. He is very professional, friendly, patient , understanding , and a genuine person. Anything we needed help with he was there to help us along the way. We found our dream home and couldn't be happier, and we have John to thank for that. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone that is looking to purchase a home

      - Zillow
    • We actually found John on Zillow while browsing for houses on our own. At first we hesitated to find an agent... I was worried about being able to view homes given our work hours but John was more than willing to work around our schedules. He did such a great job understanding our needs that we found our home on the first day out. I really admired John's openness, candor and passion for being there every step of the way. From initial interest and putting in an offer, to the inspection, the walk-through and closing, John was there every time. John is a real "good guy" agent.. trustworthy, honest, fair and looks out for your best interest. We very highly recommend him.

      - Zillow
    • John was awesome, start to finish. He helped us view at least a dozen homes and was quick to assist every step of the way when we decided which house to go with.

      - Zillow
    • This was our first time going out into the market to buy a house and we had no idea where to start. John helped us in every way possible. He went above and beyond to make sure all of our needs and expectations (and there were a lot!) were met. He showed us the houses that would fulfill our specific requirements which made it so much easier to choose our dream house. We loved that John was always available and was prompt in responding in every mode of communication whether it was email , phone call or a message. He helped go through the entire process with ease and great advice was always available

    • Our experience with Michael Vallone over the past month has been nothing short of phenomenal. Michael has been a dedicated professional during a time that the market place has low inventory. He is an active listener and takes the time to know his clients. He has been extremely engaged, available and makes you feel like you are his only client and top priority. Michael has a strong network of resources that has been equally responsive and knowledgeable. My first impression of Michael was ; "he gets things done"! In a period of just 4 weeks, we are ready to go to contract on our new home. We have not been disappointed. I would highly recommend him.

      - Zillow
    • John was fantastic, he helped us with every aspect of our search for our first home. He was personable and professional and we could tell he really cared about helping us. I would definitely recommend John to anyone searching for a home in the area and have already recommended him to several of my friends.

      - Zillow
    • The perfect realtor! Super patient and understanding of our situation and he genuinely wants the best situation for us. We liked a house and he put in the suggestion that it wasn't perfect for us and we should wait for the one we love. Talk about rare!

      - Zillow
    • John is a great real estate agent pleasure to work with ..he kept us informed about everything and very efficient .. Very knowledgeable on all of his work . Highly recommend him

He did a terrific job.

      - Zillow
    • I am so thankful that we found John the way that we did! He has been so incredible in helping my husband and I find our dream home. He made a point to really understand what it was we were looking for and only showed us quality properties. Even after we took a break at searching while we welcomed our daughter into the world he still kept in touch and would send us properties he thought we would be interested in and he was right! Less than a year searching in this crazy hectic market we finally closed on our HOME!

      - Zillow
    • We were searching for a home that fit the needs of my family and my father's business and I had gotten in touch with John. During the initial process our needs and requirements changed and John was quick to set up meetings and find us properties we would like. John was super friendly, always on time and helped make the entire home buying process a breeze. His helpful contacts helped us through the buying process and mortgage. Would recommend John to anyone and everyone if you are looking to buy a home. John is a great guy. Especially because he made himself available whenever required and answered each and every question. If he didn't have the answer, he found someone who did. Thank You John, we love our new home.

    • After inheriting my parents home I decided I would try and sell it on my own. After 6 months of basically going nowhere I hired Mike Vallone to sell my home. After listing for just several days I received a full price offer and we closed approximately 1 month later. Mike was a true professional throughout the process, handled all the paperwork and procedures flawlessly. I have no hesitation giving Mike my highest recommendation. If you utilize Mike's services you will not be disappointed.

      - Zillow
    • John Walsh has been an absolute pleasure to work with! He has gone above and beyond to show us every and any house. He worked long days/nights to make sure we got the chance to see everything we were interested in! I couldn't be more thankful to have such an amazing realtor who really cares about his clients. You can call or text him at the most ridiculous hours and he will ALWAYS get right back to you. John has truly found us our dream home and we are so excited to begin this next chapter of our lives! Most importantly, John is more than just my realtor, I gained a true friend from this whole experience and I can't wait to have him over for a BBQ!!! : )
