It was such a pleasure to meet you in person! I felt like I already knew you. Thank you so much for the Kuletto’s treat! What a terrific surprise. And Mom thanks you too for her extraordinary gift basket. She just finished the truffles tonight – with a “little” bit of help from me.
I especially want to thank you for all that you did on our behalf. Your positive energy, professionalism, attention to detail and powerful drive to make it a successful venture for all of us, was incredible. I will certainly recommend you to anyone we know who is selling a property.
Thank your wife also for her staging and for the special consideration she gave us. It was fun talking to you about your life. I know great things will continue to happen to you and your family.
Take good care….. Schyleen Q
John was amazing! Buying and selling a home is always a pain, well not this time. After meeting with John the first time he had my trust. He was confident, knowledgeable and came with the data to back him up. He assured me he would get me top dollar and he and his team would take care of everything; and that was the absolute truth. He listed my home for more than I ever thought I could, they made all the arrangements to have my home prepped; from the house cleaners to the window washers, he even met with some contractors for repairs for me while I was out of town… seriously who does that! He paid to have my property staged so that it would show beautifully. My house was on the market for 2 days before I received multiple offers, of which were above asking price. I couldn’t have been more pleased with John and his whole team. I would use them again and again! – Lisa K.
For my wife and I, this was the first time having to sell a home. We set out to interview several realtors and pick one from the group. When we interviewed John Norris, we found him to be amiable and knowledgeable. He came over to the house, had us show him around while he made notes. Then we sat down for the “sales” pitch. What he presented to us we were not prepared for. He had done extensive research on our housing area, the comps, what was available to perspective buyers and then added the unique features of our home before offering a selling price. He explained the process thoroughly and answered our questions well. By the end of the first night he had put us completely at ease with using him and Keller Williams to sell our home. Any time a question came up between my wife and I we would ask John and get his advice. He would either handle the situation himself or provide us with the answers and advice we were looking for. John also offered services we never expected such as someone to stage our home, a professional cleaner, and the names of several general contractors who could take on the tasks that were too big for us. Our house sold in only 6 days and for was listed and sold for 8% more than the area market comps! We set a new record for dollars per square foot in our neighborhood. When the buyers had a trouble with their appraiser supporting that amount, they had second thoughts. John referred an excellent appraiser who got the job done. John kept us informed and guided us through each step of the process. Needless to say, for our first home selling experience, John has set the bar high for the rest! We have had friends and family remark that they’ve never heard of such a positive experience in selling a house. Whenever anyone asks us who we would use to buy or sell a home, without hesitation we will refer them to John Norris. In the end, we gained more than a realtor, we gained a friend. ~ Bob & Michelle Beste
Few agents have the ability to provide home preparation and the marketing savvy to get your home sold fast and for the highest price possible. John delivered professional results with ongoing communication and exceptional service. ~ Martha & Juan Carlos Ceja
It has been a pleasure working with you these past months. I met you at the beginning of August expressing my desire to sell my current home and wanted to purchase a home. You made that happen in two months. By October I was moving into my new home! You got my house sold in record time, and helped me get more money for my home than originally planned! I appreciated that you took the time to prepare my home properly for sale, using Home Staging and professional cleaners. I know that you were very aware of my nervousness and you put my mind at ease with phone calls, emails, sending listing information and house hunting with me on a regular basis. Thank you for valuing my time and for listening to me regarding my new house criteria. You targeted the search for my house according to my price range, location and importance, such as a Master soaking tub.Your professionalism, patience and kindness made this a very pleasant experience for me. However, most importantly, I feel as if I have made a new life-long friend. ~ D. Cahill
Thank you for your professional service and hard work! Our house received over $35,000 more than similar houses in the neighborhood listed by other Realtors who did not market their listings the way you did! We were very happy especially being right across the street from a noisy school. The house looked great after you had it Staged by a professional, and you had an excellent marketing plan that negotiated the best price with the buyers! I highly recommend you to all my friends and colleagues! ~ S. & S. Poorsina
Thank you for excellent guidance and marketing of our home. We knew with past sales in our neighborhood from other realtors who brought home values down with their poor pricing, getting the right price for our home would be a challenge. But, you persevered and in the end, were able to price the home properly and get a great sales price! We thank you for your patience through the process and all your efforts to get our home sold. The professional Staging made a huge difference, and your consistent marketing and negotiation skills were the icing on the cake. ~ Manny & Michelle Padilla
We chose John Norris because he offered Home Staging and actually knew first-hand the value it would bring to our sale. Because he professionally Stages all his listings, John could explain in detail how it would work and impact it would make. My house was vacant – and we needed help! We got $25,000 more than expected for our home and it sold right away.” ~ Dr. L. & T. Cao
My home buying experience was stressful because there was very little inventory and I had little time to spare in finding a home. John was thorough in his search of the areas I wanted, and went beyond expectations to find the perfect home for me in the timeframe I needed. I love my new house, and the neighborhood John found – I would not even have known where to begin to look! Thank you for your time and professionalism throughout the process. ~ J. L.
Hi, Neighbors: My house was shown on 1st day it was placed on the MLS and sold the next day. I will be leaving mid-February. My agent, John Norris is very aggressive and knows how to stage homes to sell quickly and at highest price for you. The comps for my 45+ year home down the road from you motivated him to price my home at high $440,000 and it sold at $435,500 — no contingencies. Pretty good for the present slowest selling season of the year! So please stop by and pick up a flyer from the plastic box on the Keller Williams sign for his phone number etc. ~ Gail Schurr
John Norris was our Real Estate agent from September through January. As most are aware, not only is this not the best time of year to list a home for sale, we had two other factors working against us, a down swing in the market, estimates lower than 20%, and we were victims of a violent crime in our home. John showed us respect and dignity given our special situation and worked extremely hard for us during the whole process. John was consistent is his messages and followed through with only occasional probing. To rate John against previous agents that we have had, we would rate him as superior to all. He has a genuine care and understanding and related well to our desires. John was always willing to answer our questions and generally backed them up with market data. From our perspective, John knows and markets well within his segment and we tended to have more showings than those homes around us. Attention to marketing details is critical in a dry market and John constantly “Got the Message Out.” John also setup a regiment of bi-weekly open houses and came in with a Staging team to help us get our “Fit and Finish” superior to those we were competing against. (Side rant…if you don’t use his service, you better stage yourself!) Every comment we had on our “Staged” home was that it showed much better than others we were competing with.Ultimately our home sold and John’s dedication and commitment to us as homeowners was not only a positive, but he has a personal touch that not many agents can match. During the final stages of our sale, John delivered consistently and was organized and negotiated a good deal. John even had to carry some of the load from the other agent in ensuring that the sale went as smoothly as possible. John was able to deliver a sale to us in a dry market, on the down swing and added to that a high risk sale given the incident. Thanks John! Due to the nature of our incident, we would prefer to remain anonymous in this letter, though if you are truly interested in John’s services let him know and he will contact us to setup a reference call.
Thank you for all your help, guidance and superior service – -you were such a pleasure to work with on both the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. Kudos go out to you and your marketing techniques for selling our home so quickly in today’s challenging market. ~ Allyson and Jim Wyles
John Norris and Sensational Home Staging have done a fabulous job of marketing and staging our Twelve Bridges home. Today’s housing market offers more inventory and incentives for buyers than ever before, and John has successfully guided me and my husband to ensure our home has a competitive edge. John is very responsive, professional, and dedicated to his clients. ~ The Thomas’
