John did an excellent job selling our house. It started from the beginning with discussing home selling strategy covering photos, pricing, advertising and curb appeal. He maintained great communication throughout the process. He gave us weekly updates on showings including feedback from buyers  and realtors that looked at the house. We were selling remote and he helped us with coordinating contractors for work that needed to be done on the property. He did a great job listening and advising through negotiations and escrow process. I definitely helped us get the most for our home

I never thought owning a home was possible for me. But John took the time to explain all my options and made me realize that renting was just wasting my money. He helped me find the house I wanted, in my price range, in the community I wanted to be in. He was patient and informative and got me a better deal than I was even hoping for! Never have a met a realtor with such a strong work ethic. His drive to make the home buying experience the best that it can be for his clients is matched by none. So grateful he was my realtor and I’d recommend him to anyone!

Working with John was AWESOME!! From day one he has been attentive and helpful. He kept in mind all the details we were looking for in a home and he provided us with home searches that met our needs. He's quick to call back and will frequently follow up with you. He really works hard to get you the  home you want and need. I highly recommend him!! We never felt pressured by John to buy a home like we had in the past. I can honestly say he had our best interest at heart. John will go above and beyond for you! Thanks John for everything!

My Experience with John was awesome. I thought buying a house for the first time was going to be stressful and a dreadful process, but John was there every step of the way walking my wife and I through the whole thing. Any question or concerns i had i would ask him and he would always have an  answer. It was a pleasure working with him and I would definitely be calling him next time I or anyone I know will be wanting to buy a house

I have worked with John Ely and his associate, Randee Brennan, for the last 3 years. I have utilized them for property management and the sale of my home. I could not have asked for better service. They were always quick in finding well qualified tenants for the home and resolved all issues in a  timely manner. In July of 2016, I determined that it was time to sell the home once the current lease expired in November. I live out of state and this could have been an absolute nightmare. John walked me through every step of the process and couldn't have been more helpful. He contacted me whenever an issue arose or my input was needed. He was very responsive anytime I attempted to contact him. With his help I was able to have the sale closed by mid-December. The sale of my home went very smoothly and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I would, without a doubt, recommend John to anyone in need of a Realtor or Property Manager.

John Ely is the real estate professional I use to manage my real estate rental properties and he does an excellent job of it. I also use Mr. Ely as my real estate agent when I purchase income properties. I have used him to purchase two additional properties in the past 30 days. He does an excellent  job in both areas. I would highly recommend him for purchasing / selling as well as property management

First let me say this: I've never sold a home remotely before now. I left AZ for a job promotion in TX. My daughter was a fairly inexperienced realtor (had just gotten her license) so we allowed her to list the home. Unfortunately, the market was very tough at that time and so we decided instead to  rent the home out. My daughter recommended John Ely as a good resource and I'm so glad she did. From the start, John made the process easy. He gave me excellent service and he got me a GREAT renter that never missed a payment. He was always available to me when I had questions and he never "brushed me off" like other realtors I've dealt with in the past. He genuinely cared about us and our experience. When our renter gave notice John let us know and helped us make the decision to list our home. John was there every step of the way to help us with listing it, making sure that our utilities etc. were on and he also helped us immensely with our alarm system for the home. John always returned phone calls, usually within five minutes or less. He always returned emails. The documents were a snap and handled via DocuSign over the email. I have to admit, I was blown away by his responsiveness. When we had a necessary repair, John's people came in at a lower cost than even a good contractor friend of mine and when we had an issue come up with the lawn sprinklers, he had his team get out there and fix it on the same day. Long story short, our home sold within two short months of listing it with a cash sale and very little out of pocket expense on our part. I highly recommend John Ely to anyone that values excellent customer service, a high level of professionalism and integrity, and an equally high level of urgency in serving the client.

John Ely really impressed me on the whole experiment of listing & selling my home , he was very honest with me from the beginning and he was very confident on selling my home with in 30 days . He was always keeping me informed with all showings , and was always working with my schedule with  showing the home . I will recommend John as a agent to family and friends .

John's company had been managing our rental property for the past few years. When we approached John to tell him we were thinking of selling, he told us he could negotiate with contractors to provide some needed improvements to the home, list the property quickly, and get a very competitive price  based on the comps in the neighborhood. Not only did John do everything he told us he was going to do, he surpassed our expectations with exceptional communication and service. I'd highly recommend working with John in the sale or purchase of a new home. He's energetic, poised, and has great local knowledge of the market.

John is, first off, very professional in all aspects of the selling process and purchasing. He keeps his clients informed frequently at all levels of negotiations. Quick response to all of our inquiries. He works very hard to get his clients the best quality and price. He is high-energy and  personable - but not phony. Genuine in his concern to help his clients achieve their desires and goals. When the deal is done, he goes beyond his call of duty in assisting in various areas - very knowledgeable. 5-star in all areas!

Purchasing or selling a home can be a stressful experience if not represented by an agent who will work for you. Professional, energetic, knowledgeable, going the extra mile, are only a few words to describe the experience you will get when you hire John. Give him a call. I promise you won't  regret it!

Not only was John able to help us narrow down what area we wanted to buy, he was able to help us negotiate on several properties at once finding us the best deal possible saving us thousands! My wife and I had a blast working with John and trust him with one of the largest purchases we will ever  make. I highly recommend John to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate, he is highly knowledgeable, easy to work with, and will make you feel comfortable from start to finish. We will definitely be using him to purchase our next home.

Thank you John for helping me find the perfect home in an amazing area. I would highly recommend anyone to use John for their real estate needs. Not only did he negotiate for my best interests getting me the best deal possible; he kept me informed throughout the entire process. Once I closed on my  new home he negotiated to revise terms on my pre-existing rental agreement. I will defiantly be using John for any real estate advice or transactions in the future!

John is great person I am really glad that I met him by chance while he was doing an open house. He got the job done everything was perfect. Thank you John.

Thanks John for all your time and professional knowledge. Your expertise of the area was what we needed to find our dream home!

Alex and I loved working with John for being personable and walking us through step by step of each phase of buying a home. He truly looks  out for the best interest of his clients. Thank you again John for the positive experience in buying our home!

John was extremely helpful, patient and understanding during our entire home search and purchase. His response time to all questions and concerns was outstanding and he helped explain everything as we went along.

John has been a knowledgeable, consummate and responsive professional ever since we engaged him. He knows the market well and has made our arrangement with him a priority. He is on top of issues at the property and his ability to turn around questions / issues promptly gives us a great peace of mind. I would highly recommend him as a property manger.
