JOHN J. DEAN JR.
Global Real Estate Advisor
It is very nice to work with John to get our new home. John was patient and really understand what we want. He did not shy away from sharing his thoughts, which is a great help. Along the way, he provided insights he accumulated over the years.
We are so fortunate to have had John Dean as our real estate agent. In a market of mediocre homes going for non-mediocre (bordering ridiculous) prices, we now own a beautiful home (really, more then we were expecting) at an amazing price. In this market, how many people can say that?
John was so incredibly responsive to our needs and very knowledgeable of the housing market. His negotiating skills were outstanding and he always kept our best interests in mind.
John made the home buying process seem straight-forward and easy. He provided expert advice and always let us know what the next step would be. We couldn't have asked for a better agent. Thank you, John!
John is in the minority percentage (10-20%) or realtors that provide the services and market advice for maximizing the sellers goals. He was very attentive in managing the process even with a challenging buyers legal representation. Most importantly, he helped coach/support pricing/staging strategies that proved to be successful due to his knowledge of the real estate climate in the Boston area
John helped my wife and I buy our first this year. I can't recommend him more strongly as a real estate agent, and as a friend. I didn't know John before showing up to look at a house a few months ago, but I immediately felt at home in his presence, and comfortable enough to ask any questions I had. Without John's graciousness and straight ahead approach we would have been terrified about this process of buying our first house. (It's kind of a big deal) But John made everything clear and easy to understand. If I were to recommend a real estate agent to one of my family or close friends, I'd tell them to work with John any day of the week, and twice on Sundays. I just wish we could have John for all our big projects or endeavors. John's performance, service, attitude, knowledge, and honest personality is outstanding, and I don't often say that about someone.
My experience working John to purchase my home was excellent. He was very thorough and provided all the information I needed up front as a first time home buyer. He was with me every step of the way from finding the house to the closing, making sure to be at every inspection and appointment. He was incredibly patient and attentive to my concerns as they arose, and responded to calls, emails, and texts promptly. He even helped to find the correct financing for me when there was an issue with the original plan. I highly recommend John to help purchase or sell your home; he is the best!
John worked tirelessly to sell our propert on Medford MA. He is knowegeble, helpful, attentive and knows his business every which way.
I would recommend him with a rating of all the stars in the sky if it was
John guided my family through the entire selling process. His advice on how to show the property in the bedt possible light was expert, every improvement, repair or adjustment added value to purr home.
His knowledge of the neighborhood and what our expectations should be were spot on.
John Dean, knows his business and is expert in sharing his knowege in an understandable and easy manner.
We were able to get over asking price and i credit John Dean for making that happen
We have both bought a home from and sold a home with John. If I could give John more stars, I would! John was our realtor when we decided to buy a condo in the Cambridge/Somerville area. He took the time to understand exactly what we were looking for, what was a must and what was a would-like, and gave us realistic expectations of what our budget would get us. He is an expert on the Cambridge/Somerville area and is up on all of the things going on that might impact a neighborhood, like the extension of the green line. He seems to know most of the other realtors, and they obviously respect him.
He guided us and helped us understand all of the paperwork, and was ultra responsive!
We ended up with a condo that was even better than our expectations in a prime neighborhood of Somerville. The longer we lived in it, the more we loved it and the neighborhood.
Then, two years later, we had to sell the condo to relocate to another city. Of course we called John!
By the time we were ready to sell, we were already relocated halfway across the country and were not on site for the sale. I cannot express how hard and how much time John personally spent getting our condo repainted, inspected, staged and cleaned for sale. It was incredible. As far as communication goes, he was probably frustrated with us, as he was constantly in touch with updates and questions as he dealt with contractors and cleaners. He interacted with our neighbors to keep them up to date on who was coming and going in the building, and to alert them about open house dates so that they knew there would be people coming and going. He went above and beyond to make sure that we would get the best price possible on the condo.
The first open house generated many, many offers and we sold it for an incredible profit, thanks to John and all the work he put in to make it look it's best, and through his contacts with other realtors to let them know a prime property would be on the market.
If you want a respected, well-connected, knowledgeable realtor who will do whatever he can to find you the home you want, or to sell your home for the most money possible, John is your guy! He will be in constant touch throughout the process, and never leave you hanging or confused about the process or paperwork. He's the best! Less
