The Clients Speak

John McGurn helped us sell our townhome and purchase our new home this past summer. We were nervous about such a big change, but with John's help it was a great experience! John listed our townhome, and he sold it on the first day of showings--it was awesome! With our new home, we had a tricky purchase due to the seller's situation, and John made things work out flawlessly. He is patient, dedicated, had a great sense of what we were looking for, knows Richmond well, and is such fun to work with. We know we weren't John's only clients, but we felt like it. We recommend John to friends and family all of the time--he's is a joy to work with!

This is the second home that I have purchased with John's assistance. he never missed a beat, calling me weeks after the closing to ensure that I had received a check I was owed. He was always available to help me work through any questions or anxieties I had about the home. He is honest and fair. He receives great respect and is courteous to all the parties involved which causes everyone to be at ease.

We were first-time home sellers. John did a great job walking us through the process. He counseled us on steps to take to prepare our home and on setting our asking price. His counsel and advice were invaluable, particularly since we were selling our home during a challenging time in the market. John was a great help during the negotiation process and getting the deal closed. From start to finish, John worked hard on our behalf.

When we first started thinking about selling our home, we considered the two options: use a realtor or sell by owner. Because we were relocating out-of-state due to a new job opportunity, we decided we really needed to have an advocate in the home selling process. That decision was definitely the best one we could have ever made. John's "proven strategy" worked perfectly. To our pleasant surprise, his marketing plan helped produce an offer well above what we expected. Then John worked hard to administer lots of details and schedules leading to closing. We had an excellent experience with John. Too bad he doesn't buy and sell homes in other states!

This is the second time John has assisted me. A few years ago he helped me purchase a home. It was natural to contact him again about selling that home, and finding another. John was very prepared. He knew what questions Michelle and I were going to ask before we even asked them. John was a great resource and was available any time we needed to talk. Although he has other clients, we felt he gave us 100% of his attention. His advice was definitely invaluable to us

We would highly recommend John McGurn to anyone looking to buy or sell their home! He was wonderful to work with and was very patient as we searched for the perfect place to call our home. Buying and selling a home can be a complicated transaction; however, John provided a wealth of experience and a "hands on"approach that made the process run smoothly. He was always a phone call away to help with any of our questions and concerns. He proveded prompt responses to assist during the buying and selling process. We truly enjoyed working with him and know he had our best interest in mind with every decision. Thanks again John!!

Jen and I cannot imagine having sold our house without John's help. I was super busy at work and Jen was chasing our two young boys, but we needed to sell our home and move in short order. John helped us identify necessary repairs and aesthetic changes important to making the sale and more, he helped us find and supervise workers to get the stuff done. He hustled with promoting our house and helped us negotiate a good sale price. After we had an offer on our house, the out-of-state buyers had concerns arising from their inspection. To address some of their issues, John, himself, crawled under the house and took digital photos of requested repairs to send to the buyers! Thanks John!

John was a consummate professional throughout the process of buying our new home. We had asked several people for recommendations about realtors and received a glowing recommendation of John. So John, without knowing it, had a pretty high bar to get over. He cleared that bar with ease. His patience and sense of humor as we went through lots of homes made the process proceed smoothly. Perhaps the best summation of our experience is that we would recommend John to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

John was wonderful during both the sale of our home and the purchase of a new home. His patience, attentiveness, and follow-up helped make both transactions pleasant and run smoothly. It was great to have a real estate agent who we enjoyed working with and being with throughout the process. We would recommend John to anyone. His experience made a difference for us.

John McGurn's services as a realtor are of the absolutely highest caliber, and unbelievably exceed expectations. During the selling and buying of our homes, we received thoroughly experienced, decisive, innovative, timely solutions from John, for unusual and important problems: such as, how to handle an underground oil tank on our property, what is the right inspection for your septic system, and which first-class, reliable business and professionals to use to go from contract to closing. John McGurn (and his partner, Charlotte Shirey) helped us make decisions that made a difference. You can count on them!

John McGurn and Charlotte Shirey provided the best in class service to us! The personal attention we received, coupled with a sincere effort to understand our needs and wants, led us to finding the perfect first home. We love our Glen Allen home and we strongly recommend working with John & Charlotte; the result will be a great house and two great friends.

My experience with John McGurn was very positive. John showed patience and persistence and it paid off for me. I always knew John was really looking out for my well being. The best thing I can say about John McGurn is that I would not hesitate to utilize John as my REALTOR for my next real estate transaction or pass his name on to others.

John McGurn's experience paid off for me. I faced a couple of sticky issues with homes I was considering. John's knowledge & insight allowed me to think through and make good decisions. His experience and follow through were invaluable. I was so impressed, I confidently passed John's name onto friends who needed a REALTOR.

Looking for a new home in a community 120 miles away was challenging. John McGurn's assistance was invaluable. He listened to our needs, clarified and offered helpful input. John's help after the contract was just as valuable. Since we were living in another community, John took care of having contractors measure the house and provide estimates. That was a great help. John's service as an agent went above and beyond our expectations. We recommend him to anyone looking for or thinking of selling a home.

A real estate purchase can be a little overwhelming...there's a lot to consider throughout the process. John took me through it step by step and made it a wonderful process. I love my Glen Allen home!

As first time home buyers, we had a million questions. John was very patient with us. He made what could be a stressful life event a very fun and enjoyable process! We highly recommend John to all our friends.

John McGurn made the process of buying my first home one that I will never forget because he treated me as if I were his only client. He took time to explain details to me and made sure that I was comfortable with the purchase. The level of service and respect that he gave me was impeccable and I could not have asked for a better agent.
Melanie Joyner - Stonewall Manor

The process of buying a home scared me to death. John exceeded all of my expectations as to how a Realtor should work for his client. His service is impeccable. I could not have done it without him.
Stephen Hunn - Bellevue

John McGurn listed, marketed, and sold our home in Midlothian. Then he helped us purchase our home in Henrico. In both transactions, there were some surprising and challenging twists and turns. John was there throughout to help straighten the way. We really appreciate John's professionalism.
The Byrd Family - Sleepy Hollow

We thank John for his expert suggestions on what improvement projects would get the best results, and for all the extra work he did to let folks know about our house -- creating color flyers and a website ad, and arranging lots of showings in a short period of time. And we had multiple offers the very first day it was on the market! His strategy worked well.
