"We met John Houston at an open house in Palm Springs on Feb. 20, 2018. "We were just looking." We live in Dana Point so we told him to watch for any homes in our price range in South Palm Springs. In three days, he sent us six options. We liked one in particular. He said to come out and look at it. We did. On February 28, we made an offer with John as our realtor. He jumped through many hoops for us. He has great attention to detail. Always looking out for us the buyers. We closed escrow on June 6, 2018. And we love our new home. Not only is John the best realtor we`ve ever used, he`s a great guy to boot. So, now we have a dream home and a life, long friend in Palm Springs. Highly recommend him. Please feel free to contact us for questions.”
A good friend who had worked with John in purchasing his mid century home in Palm Springs referred us to him. We initially spoke on the phone and I gave him our wants and needs for our new home. I gave him the budget for the new property. After our phone call, that same afternoon, I received several listings to review. Over the course of a few weeks, we received several emails with great properties that met our criteria. Since we lived out of the area, John kept an eye on the market and then we made a plan to meet up and go see several properties. By the end of the 3rd day, we had decided on a condo. We put our offer in and the following day we were in contract. Both of us wondered was it supposed to be this easy? From start to finish, the transaction went smoothly, John working behind the scenes and representing our interests at all times. We are so grateful that we chose John as our agent and we love our new home in the desert.
John’s attentiveness to our explanation of what we desired in a home and where we wanted to live helped us to find and purchase our home in four weeks. This was our first purchase. John showed us properties that we were interested in. His knowledge of Palm Springs and Palm Desert helped us find the property we really liked in record time. I would definitely use him for any future purchases. Thank you for helping us.
There is a reason that John is a top real estate agent in the desert - he is fantastic! He guided us through the entire selling process, from staging to professional photography and drone videos. His marketing was beautiful - from stunning pictures, drone videos, social media and email blasts. What I most appreciated about John was his responsiveness, calm demeanor, and professional guidance to help us make the best decisions. He is also pretty funny, and levity always helps in big stressful situations like selling and moving! Thank you John for all your help. We wish you continued success in the Coachella Valley.
Excellent, capable and professional. Marketed my home impeccably, and created a “buzz” about our home. There were over 40 people at the open house. John had a great relationship with the other agents and secured 2 offers on our home 3 days after the first open. Once the offer was accepted he worked through the inspection and financing contingencies and we closed 3 days early! Start to finish less than 30 days…it doesn`t get any better than that!
John was nothing short of amazing. We sold our condo and bought a house within a lightning fast escrow turn around. Time and time again, we were hit with roadblocks- but John turned everything around so quickly, with accuracy, attentiveness to detail, and smiling customer service all the way through. He even managed to keep the two escrow companies on track with this fast schedule. Dependable, efficient, and professional- We could not more highly recommend John. We decided to sell our home and were referred to John through a friend who had worked with him. Our friend described him as friendly, caring, knowledgeable and thinks out of the box. After going through the selling process, we agree! We met and discussed our expectations. John explained the process and what we would need to do to get our home ready for sale to maximize our sales price. We are so pleased with our decision to use John. He does not disappoint! daunting. When we found the home we wanted, John counseled us on the offering price and once we secured the deal, he made the transaction run smoothly.
