As sellers of our parent’s family home, we interviewed several agents and selected John Kirkpatrick based on his vast knowledge of the neighborhood, his marketing plan, his track record and his personality. We are quite pleased with the result. The first time we called John he came to the house and met with us within 30 minutes of our phone call. Completely unprepared for this meeting with 4 members of our family, he was able to recite recent comps, advised us of a suggested listing price and as his best guess, actually nailed the amount of the final sale price. He also estimated that the total time to expect from listing to close of escrow would be about 6 weeks. As it turned out, it was exactly 6 weeks. He clearly understands this market! He advised us to stage the home by rearranging our existing furniture and made other suggestions to keep our pre-sale costs to an absolute minimum. John promised and never fell short of daily communication and outstanding customer service throughout the sales process. Our home was on the market for two and one-half weeks and received seven offers, all above asking price. The offer we accepted was $85K over asking price with no contingencies. We would recommend John to our friends and family without hesitation.
