Of Land for Development
I hired John as my exclusive agent to sell my West Hollywood condominium development property. I choose him because of his honesty, integrity, and knowledge of both the local market and multi-family and condominium development processes. Through John’s extensive network he was able to procure a buyer and a premium price for my property (which had an affordable housing component) in this down market. John was very communicative throughout the entire process. I always knew where my deal stood and he was able to keep my expectations in line. John treats all of his clients alike whether they’re selling a small development project or a multi-million doll...— Nick H.
John handled several acquisitions for us as well as a disposition recently. He has been absolutely amazing to work with and no matter what challenges are presented, he always has a solution and the resolve to get around it. For our sale, John got us a full ask offer within 2 days of being taken to market and for the acquisitions, we got the properties below market and with extended timing necessary for us to complete the purchase. I cannot highly recommend enough to work with John. He is the expert on multifamily in Los Angeles and he's the first person I call when I want to discuss a new transaction.— Stephen M.
John was a pleasure to work with throughout the sale process for our building at 11747 Mayfield Ave. We were seeking a premium price, despite not having completed the soft story retrofit work, and he was able to produce multiple offers to get us to where we needed to be. His consistent follow-up, smooth coordination with our management team to show the property, and understanding of how to properly convey the value of our vacant units to the market, allowed us to have a successful sale. I would highly recommend John and we will certainly be working on many more transactions together in the future.— James K.
We take the time to get to know our clients on a personal level, building lasting trusting relationships that are essential to a successful transaction. Having worked on the principal side of the business we understand both sides of the transaction and can overcome any hurdle that may come up during a deal. Our goal is to provide an enjoyable experience that leads to a successful outcome for all involved. We'd love to get to know you; open up a discussion and see what transpires.
