  • John listed and sold my home

      Let’s start with positive. John is definitely in the right profession. A passion for getting great results. Home selling is a stressful undertaking. John assured me that we would would get my home sold. Within 3 weeks of signing we had a offer. Everything went amazingly smooth to the day of closing. I enjoyed my experience with his team! Thank you!

    • "John West did a wonderful job for us. Very professional every step of the way. From the day we listed until closing was done, he checked with me regularly to make sure I was updated on what was happening.Id recommend John and West Real Estate Group to anyone who is selling or buying a home. You wont be sorry."

John was also very understanding to the stress a homeowner goes through in selling their home and was very positive in finding the right buyer for our home. He is very professional, kind, truthful and accommodating. It was a pleasure working with him. He is a Terrific real estate agent! Thank you John and your staff, specifically Daniel. Wishing you continued success always!"

    • "John West was great to work with when selling my mother-in-law's house. He was very professional, attentive to our needs, and helpful when it came to figuring out the right price to list the house at. We had an impressive bidding war for the property, and John did an excellent job checking out the top bid to make sure there were no red flags. He was easy to communicate with and was able to explain how the whole process worked for a first-time house seller like me. We'd be happy to work with him in the future and would recommend him to anyone."

    • "We couldnt be happier with our experience with West Real Estate Group. John and his team were extremely helpful and thorough in walking us through the process of selling our home. If we ever move back to Boise they will be the first people we call!"

    • "My wife and I were facing a very difficult sale and purchase of a home. John West and his team made it look easy. They were friendly and knowledgeable throughout the transaction. If we ever know of anyone who needs a realtor we would enthusiastically recommend West Realty."

    • "John did an awesome job in assisting us in the sale of our home. I would have spent hours and money getting ready to put it on the market. John reinforced to me that it was a sellers market and encouraged me to wait to see what the buyer request after inspection. I am so glad that we had John and his team to walk us through this process. Without his team, I would have stressed about things that never came up on inspection. John and Daniel made sure we understood things every step of the way. I am so grateful for their hard work and if I am buying or selling in the future, I know I would be in god hands with their Team."

    • "Amazing! Gifted! Blessed! How can we adequately express in words what John does, what experience and connection he brings to the table, to help Boise native home buyers through a daunting process in today's Treasure Valley market? There truly are not enough positive adjectives in the dictionary. Our process started over a year ago when I entered in my contact information into Dave Ramsey's ELP provider search tool. I ended up being blasted out to several brokers and realtors. There was one person that stood above the rest in how he spoke to me. His patience, his consistency of follow up, his willingness to remain diligent to help us, even when we decided to put off our home search for a while. He kept us on his radar and never gave up on us. Although, when we were finally ready to begin our pre-approval process last Spring, we ended up going with a family friend who dabbles in real estate part-time for family and friends, and gives back 1% towards closing costs.That sounded great to us at the time, however it did not go well for us. We wasted months and had multiple offers dashed with out-of-state cash offers we could not compete with. This happened all the way up to the expiration of our first pre-approval. We felt defeated and unsure if we were ever going to be able to own our own home in the valley we grew up in. I think our realtor friend was feeling the same defeat. John sent me a check in text and I called him the next morning. I told him everything; everything we had done, everything we had been through, and he didn't get upset we had turned to another realtor. He didn't give us the brush off. He took the time to listen to me. He heard all of my concerns, questions, and the defeat in my voice. He took the time to explain why we went through all we had using a part-time realtor, what the market requires being so volatile and competitive, and what he does to ensure his clients get into the perfect home without having to settle for something less than a home, just to get a house. John did everything he said he would do. The first home we brought to him, which coincidently checked off every need and want, he went right out to do a virtual walk-through for us because he knew time was of the essence. We put in an offer right away and knew our offer was accepted before we even walked through the door the next afternoon. Without John, his connections in the valley, his willingness to keep us on his radar even though it had been a year since we first connected, we would have never had our new home. He never gave up on us! He didn't fire us as a client. He claimed us clients over a year ago and now as friends and we claim him as our realtor and friend as well."

    • "I could not have had a better experience selling my home. John and his team provided expertise and professionalism. Great suggestions on items we could touch up to get it ready to show. We listed at the right price and they worked hard to get alot of traffic through the house. In the end, I believe John and his team were the reason we were able to sell for as much as we did."

    • "We used John West and his team to sell our home.

    • "My experience working with John West has been nothing but outstanding! He is honest, knowledgeable, and professional. He went above and beyond to make the selling of mine and my ex spouses home as quick and seamless as possible, even with the trials that came with our less than ideal situation. He truly makes communication and educating his clients a top priority. I highly recommend John and his team to anyone looking for a trustworthy and caring agent that will make their home buying or selling experience a positive one!"

    • "John West and his team (we primarily worked with John & Daniel) are absolutely amazing! Our family was relocating to Idaho from out of state and my wife and I feel so fortunate to have found John.He spent qualify time with us on the phone leading up to our first scouting trip, educating us on the different areas and things we should know about Idaho. He even provided an extremely helpful & professional Relocation Guide, along with quality information about different schooling options for our son.As you can imagine, an out of state move during the COVID pandemic is not an easy undertaking, and John made it all possible. When we were looking to buy our home, every house had multiple offers within the first couple days, and John was able to help us secure the home on which we put our first offer! We would later learn how lucky we were when our neighbor let us know his family stayed in a hotel for 3 months, while they put in offers on 37 homes before getting one accepted! We got our first accepted with Johns helpand without going over asking price (other than for add-on items). John knows how contracts work, how to negotiate, and how to work with people.We never felt John was trying to sell us a home. He was a trusted advisor and guided us with fact-based, non-emotional info. He was personable and took the time to get to know us, including our 6-year old son.Once we entered escrow, John called us every week (Tuesday update calls!) to check in and provide added info. His team was also amazing in helping with any needs along the way, providing a great liaison with the sellers agent to ensure we got all questions answered about the home (measurements for furniture, etc.).And it didnt stop there. Even after closing, John provided us with a list of trusted vendors, as well as ensuring we completed our Homeowners Exemption info with the county, to save on property taxes. It is very obvious John has spent a lot of time systematizing his business to ensure no stone goes unturned. Youll appreciate Johns organization, personal touch, and professionalism.We could go on and on!We cant say enough about John and teamas you can imagine, we highly recommend their services, and actually already have to several friends!"

    • "John and his team were extremely helpful through the whole process of the buying process. I appreciate the time that John took to make sure that we understood the process, answering all of our questions, as well as making himself available whenever called upon. I would highly recommend John and his team to anyone looking to buy a house."

    • "I was recommended to West Real Estate by Dave Ramsay's ELP website. Elp's are described as high protein, high octane real estate agents with the heart of a teacher. John West and his agents fit that description. On top of that John recommended a broker that fit that same description. I've been through the home buying process before with other agencies and mortgage companies. It was a frustrating process with the financial side full of problems. Using Jon's recommended broker was quite the opposite. He was very informative and went above and beyond to capture as many products as he could into my mortgage to benefit me. Working with John, he paired me with one of his top agents, Alex. Alex was exceptional and always very prompt to acquire information and set showings on houses that literally hit the market hours before. After a couple houses Alex got the feel for what I was looking for and would send me houses before I could even see them on the listings page. He helped me come up with a strategy to make competitive offers in this aggressive market. After getting my offer accepted he was on top of everything from that point to closing. I would highly recommend West Real Estate to anyone buying or selling a home."

    • "Working with Mr. John West and his team was an absolute pleasure. West Real Estate brings alot more to the table than your typical real estate agent. From our initial conversation, through the listing period, to closing;John and his team were proactive and informative throughout the entire selling process. I would highly recommend West Real Estate if you're considering purchasing or selling property in the Boise area."

    • "I utilized the services from John and his team at West Real Estate Group to sell a duplex in Mountain Home, ID. I live in Boston, MA - so selling while being across the country - initially, was daunting - at best. However with John, this couldn't have been easier. He was super flexible - and patient, and in the end, we not only sold the two units - but did so above market. The care, attention, and recommendations to make nominal improvements paid off. I cannot highly recommend John and the West Real Estate Group enough. Use this group - they are AMAZING and you will not be disappointed!"

    • "Just completed a home sale with John from West Real Estate, could not have been a smoother sale. John and his team kept me up to the minute with any new updates. Made great recommendations without feeling any pressure. Great communication all around and saved me some money by understanding every part of the contract. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."

    • "John and his team are timely and organized. They made the sale of our home quick and clean. It was the most stress-free sale we have done in 20 years of real estate."

    • "John West and team were the sellers realtors for my first home purchase a few months ago. Despite not being my realtors, they willingly shared their vast knowledge during every step of the buying process. From simple reminders and contact lists for inspections to next steps like setting up utilities and homeowners exemption forms the team were organized, very thorough, and forthcoming with a wealth of information. Without their help my home buying process would not have gone as smoothly as it did and I am grateful for their efforts to make the experience so satisfying. I definitely recommend West Real Estate Group and will look to them for any future real estate endeavors. Keep up the excellent work!"

    • "We had an amazing experience with West real estate group. Nelja and John were so helpful and patient with us. They always responded to my questions. We were out of state and could not see the houses in Idaho. Nelja did many virtual tours at many houses for us. Many many thanks for all of your hard work in helping us find our Idahome!"

    • "We found West through Ramsey Solutions Endorsed Local Provider (ELP) list. Almost immediately we received a call from John West who took time to meet and get to know us BEFORE asking for what our realty needs were - very refreshing! We then worked closely with Derek to find the right house. Being first-time home-buyers, working with Derek has been amazing; he was always finding ways to educate us along the way.And the happily ever after? Well, we found our first home! We highly recommend West Real Estate Group. They truly have a heart for educating and advocating for their buyers."

    • "I can't speak highly enough of John and the entire team at West Real Estate Group. My wife and I were relocating from out of state and facing an extremely competitive market in Treasure Valley. Furthermore, we tasked John with an challenging wish list. We wanted a certain neighborhood, square footage and property on the Boise River. Not only were these homes hard to come by, they were near impossible to find in this market and commanded top dollar. John miraculously found us a home off market then quickly navigated escrow to assure a stress free and timely close. As an out of state real estate agent myself, I can confidently recommend John for anyone looking to buy or sell in the area. He is a hard worker, outgoing and genuine....and he knows local real estate! In the current competitive Boise market, you need an advantage to lock up your dream home. West Real Estate Group is that advantage."

    • "John West was nothing but extremely helpful and professional from the start.There were times when my family and business got in the way of answering and returning calls to John in a timely fashion but that did not stop him from doing everything in his power to keep me updated and informed on my property search.John was always quick to respond and extremely diligent.When he said he would do something, he did it quickly and then immediately followed up with me.He made the buying process extremely seamless for my wife and I.I will definitely be utilizing Johns services for my real estate needs from now on."

    • "The West team did an amazing job of helping me relocate to Boise. I spoke to a lot of other agencies but John West was the only one that earnestly listened and put actual effort into finding solutions to my specific requirements. John came up with a creative out of the box solution that took much of the risk and stress out of pulling the trigger on a big move. Nicole Brushey is a superstar! In a very competitive situation she got me every single thing I was looking for. The only reason I got the deal that I got as quickly as I did is because Nicole expertly quarterbacked it from start to finish. She knew how to structure the offer to make sure we got it. Nicole demonstrated expertise in this market immediately. Very easy to work with. A pro-active, positive, eager to help attitude. Just as important she's been hands on after the deal was finished to make sure all of the little details were handled perfectly. Professional and knowledgeable, I felt like I was in capable hands through the entire process. If you're buying a house call her!"

    • "The experience we had with John Wests Real Estate crew was absolutely incredible. John was very easy to work with, explained in detail all our options, gave us goals to sell the house quickly and get the max dollar amount out of the deal. Our house was on the market one day and we got the right offer to suit our needs with the right price and closing time. John was there to help us work through any hurdles we encountered in the process. I highly recommend West Real Estate Group to anyone buying or selling a home in the area. Outstanding experience. Thanks John!"

    • "AMAZING!! John West and the West Real Estate team once again exceeded our expectations. Selling a home can be a huge task, but after sitting down with John and having him walk us thru our potential home sale scenarios it made so much sense and eased our concerns. John had a professional approach to fair market pricing as well as advertising. Needless to say, West Real Estate sold our house in just two days and the process went seamlessly."
