We returned to Baldwin County after being away for a year. We had leased in the past and this time around we were ready to buy. My Husband's employer recommended Amanda Madden. I spoke to Amanda over the phone and shared with her the type of home we were looking for and what neighborhood I was interested in looking at.
Amanda immediately sent me over a listing of homes in the area that were available. A few days later we met and looked at 7 houses. Upon completion of my list Amanda showed me two neighborhoods in the area that I had not considered. Actually I didn't know that these neighborhoods existed. They were newer construction with big lots available. But, we wanted something that was move in ready and didn't want to wait for a house to be built.
Out of the 7 homes we chose there was one home that we thought would fit us perfect. Because this was an older home Amanda was concerned about the structure of the home. The roof was original from 20 years ago. She checked comps in the area and we were able to make a reasonable offer on the home.
Our offer was rejected two days later. It appears that the offer was too low and the homeowner and realtor didn't want to negotiate any further. We were disappointed!
I found another home in the same neighborhood and Amanda was in touch with one of the homeowners from the newer neighborhood that she had showed me. So, on an early Saturday morning we met and looked at another house in the neighborhood I wanted to live in. We immediately decided that it needed to much work before we could even move in and we were not interested.
We then drove 5 minutes away to the home that Amanda had chose and OMG!........Open floor plan, beautiful kitchen, many, many upgrades throughout the entire home from inside to outside. This was a new home that was only two years old and just gorgeous.
We made an offer that afternoon for the full asking price and moved in two weeks later.
Amanda was so wonderful and patient with me and knew exactly what I was looking for and she found it. Amanda was so responsive to all my questions and request. Every time I called Amanda it was like calling a friend. She either answered right away or called me back immediately. I really bonded with her and felt like I was shopping for a new home with a Friend. Thank you so much Amanda.
Goes above and beyond to make this process go smoothly and is there to answer any questions you may have! Gives great suggestions and advice. Loved working with John!
Professional in all aspects of our real estate transaction. Located several homes that met our requirements, scheduled and accompanied us to view prospective homes and interacted positively and courteously with sellers. Displayed excellent knowledge of the community. Used very effective negotiation skills especially when dealing with new construction home sellers
John was a spectacular advocate for us throughout a tricky buying process during which we threw him some curve balls. He hit each one out of the park. I highly recommend him for his professionalism and calm demeanor.
John helped us buy our home in Summer 2017. We were moving from a remote island in Alaska down to Mobile for work. John was absolutely fantastic and went the extra mile during every step of the process. He recorded video walkthroughs for us, and gave us information concerning typical utility costs, best schools, etc. He made us feel as if we were his most important clients. Great guy, great agent. Highly recommended!
John made the home buying process fun. Always responded quickly and kindly to viewing multiple houses in various locales. I cannot think of one thing I would want done differently throughout the entire process. Thank you for a phenomenal first time home buying experience!
My husband got a new job, so we were in a hurry to sell our home. John and Amanda got it sold in about three weeks. We were able to close on our house before our moving date. Thank you!
Amanda was wonderful. Knowledgeable of the area we were looking at. She kept us updated on the entire process. She certainly made becoming a first time homeowner very exciting!
John made the process easy from day one. The next time I decide to buy or sell, I look forward to using the Madden Team again. They were knowledgable and so quick to answer all of my questions. I feel very confident that I made the right decision in using the Madden Team and you will too.
Amanda was recommended to us by one of her former clients. We contacted her and found that all the complimentary things he had said about her were true. She was always responsive to our calls, texts and e-mails, and being from out of the area that was very important to us. She kept us updated on every step of our purchase. We always felt that she had our best interests at heart. She has great knowledge of the area and the comparable sales. She treated us as a friend not just a client. We have great trust in her and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home.
John was extremely helpful with our home purchase. We were out of town buyers and he previewed and photographed many homes for us. We had a challenging wish list and he worked to help us find our perfect home. We highly recommend John Madden!
John responded quickly in arranging to see the property and was easily able to answer all of my questions during the walk-through. He also made it easy to submit an offer to the owner. I would recommend John if you are interested in buying in the Fairhope area.
Amanda has previously helped us purchase a new home. We were in the market to sell another property we owned. There was never a doubt as to whom we would ask to help us through selling our property.
She is respectful of her clients, knowledgeable about the area and current market conditions, and tireless in helping you through the process. There were numerous items she helped us with allowing our home to sell much quicker.
I am retired military, moved around a good bit and owned several properties. By far Amanda is the best agent I have ever dealt with. Highly recommend !!!
Amanda did a great job. She was very knowledge about the property and could answer any questions quickly. She returned text or phone very promptly and even after hours when needed. It was a very positive experience dealing with Amanda and I would recommend her as an agent
John was very helpful & very informative on the process of the sale of the property. I will highly recommend to family & friends in the area. The area is growing rapidly & many more sales should be expected. Thanks again.
I could have not asked for a better more experienced real estate person than Amanda she was very personable and very experienced I only wish I could put her in my pocket and take her with me .. oh my next home purchase ..
John's honesty, expertise of the area and professionalism is a win win!
He listened to our price point provided a sound and thought out choice which ended up being our new home.
Thank you John,
Amanda was instrumental in our new home purchase. Had it not been for her we would not have our house. Thank you for all of your help in negotiating with the builder and assisting us with purchasing our new home!
John did a great job with the sale process of my mothers home. Very prompt returning calls and answering questions. John also sold my home and assisted us in finding a new home.
John is very knowledgeable and professional. He was very helpful and patient with my many questions. He knows the area well and helped me with getting the power, water and garbage pick-up. I will definitely recommend him to my family and friends.
John was very helpful and informative. He helped us make the right decision when making offers and helped us get the house we wanted for the right price.
My husband and I stumbled across our now home by chance and John was more than willing to go out of his way to meet us several times to see the house. I think my husband and I were most impressed most by John's ability to keep things rolling on time. He was not going to let time be wasted. That means a lot when you are so excited and ready to move into your dream home. As first time home owners my husband and I had a lot of questions and all were easily answered by John. I feel like he was all you can hope for when it comes to buying and selling a home.
John helped my family and I fulfill our dreams of home-ownership. He was consistently on top of things and made the process very painless for us. We are very pleased with the dedication he showed us, and even though I know he had other clients, he made us feel as though we were his only, most important one. John worked around our schedules, all hours, and I'm very appreciative of the time he spent on our behalf making our dream come true. Thanks, John, from my family to yours!
Top Realtors! John and Amanda sold my parent's home for over asking in the first week of getting the listing. They facilitated every step, including extensive local knowledge of the area, marketing, negotiating and inspections...all the way to the Closing table. Their perservance, patience and professionalism makes this team #1.
Amanda Madden is extremely professional and worked very diligently with our family to locate the perfect home. Look no further, she's the perfect realtor. Thanks Amanda from the Powers family!
John was there through the purchase of my first home which went great and now is helping me find an investment property. I would recommend John Madden because of his directness , honesty, knowledge, and professionalism. Thank you again John.
John was extremely helpful and available. He was knowledgeable of the area and took the time to answer all of my questions. World class service! I would recommend him to anyone in the market for a home!
John and Amanda were very helpful in finding a real estate agent in Fort Myers Florida. John researched agents in the area and interviewed several to save us time. Amanda shared many ideas on what we needed to look for when choosing a rental property. They worked diligently helping me with any concerns about buying in another state. Finally they helped us with finding a property manager. Thanks!!
Amanda was great! She helped us find our home and navigate negotiations and paperwork in a timely low stress manner. Amanda and her team made my job relocation to Alabama from Arizona an enjoyable experience!
In the fall of last year (2015) we began to house search for a new home in Baldwin County. Due to unforeseen health issues amongst our family our plans to purchase were delayed. We finally were able to focus and dedicate our time to finding a new home in the late spring. Throughout our long process, Amanda was always available for anything we needed. In fact she was always concerned with our family's medical issues first and foremost. She took us to numerous locations from Gulf Shores to Spanish Fort before we finally found our dream home. She has a wealth of experience and contacts and is without question a dedicated professional. We have been truly blessed to have had her by our side throughout the home buying process. Will refer anyone I know to her for future real estate needs.
John Madden has done everything you always wanted from a real estate agent... and more.
We used his services twice (selling and buying) and were completely satisfied.
Thank you John.
I've worked with John twice and he's gone above and beyond both times! First time he helped me as a single mom purchase my first home. He was so awesome that I chose him to sell my house six years later! Well he had my house under contract in ONE DAY!! Highly recommend!!
This is our third transaction with John and as always, he was great! Smooth transaction thanks to John's knowledge. Will recommend him to family and friends.
Amanda Madden is a fantastic person. She knows here business and made our purchase from California to Alabama a dream. We would recommend her to anyone looking to sell or buy a home in Daphne, Alabama. The Madden Team really is a Great Team!!
Working with John & Amanda Madden was a pleasure, as always. We turn to John, when we were purchasing our home, and without reservation, turned to him once again for his expertise in real estate, for the purchase of investment property. His knowledge and professionalism in all areas are superb. The fluidity, from the beginning of the search, until closing was seamless. We will always utilize and recommend to everyone, "The Madden Team" of Agency One.
We recently had the pleasure in working with Amanda Madden. She is knowledgeable and very helpful in helping us find our home. She really took her time and answered all of our questions, paid attention to detail, and helped us get exactly what we were looking for. I would definitely work with her again! Thanks Amanda!
Amanda was very helpful and responsive to our needs. She was timely and spent the entire day with us looking at over 10 homes. She presented our offer and once accepted worked with our lender to ensure that all the processes and procedures were in the works and completed on time. Walk through was easy and the closing was a quick. Quickest closing we have ever experienced.
When it's time to list the property, I will definitely look to Amanda to be the listing agent.
John was extremely helpful and patient with my pickiness to find the right house. He had all of the answers to my many questions about the home buying process. I would recommend him to anyone searching for a home in this area. And would absolutely choose him again if we ever search for another home.
Thanks for everything John!!!
John was very open and honest during the entire buying process! Very knowledgeable about the market . John was always available when I had questions or concerns or needed help! Assisted me with the purchase of my new home! Overall, a 5 star agent! will recommend to my friends--
John Madden is courteous, professional and very efficient. Excellent. He helped us through the process of buying a Homepath home from Fannie Mae. The dotloop system he used for signing was very helpful.
John and Amanda were incrediblely helpful. We were in a buyers market and worried about how long it would take to sell our home. John assured us that if we let him handle it all would be fine. It was more than fine. We did not only sell quickly we made more than expected on the sale. In addition, they helped find the ideal home for our family. Thanks John and Amanda
John Madden was absolutely fabulous! We drove down to Gulf Shores from Memphis, TN after we had talked to John over the phone, emails, and texts. He immediately began working on the property that we were interested in and made every accommodation to fit our schedule, answered all of our questions and worked very hard to resolve all of of interests, negotiated the price to our satisfaction and before our long weekend we had made an offer and signed contract! He was also instrumental in helping to speed up the process for the minor repairs that needed to be handled, he even did some of the work himself. He stayed in regular contact with us making the closing of the very easy. There were lots of details that needed to be attended to with the owner living in Illinois and us in Tennessee, but he made sure there were excellent communications and we could not be more pleased with the outcome. We are now in our new great little getaway home, and everything went smoothly from beginning to finish. John is an excellent communicator and takes care of us like we were family, we would recommend him highly for anyone looking for that special place.
We would recommend John, as the realtor to contact for the purchase or sale of any property. He was very informative and helpful on every level. It was a pleasure working with John. Good luck to John and the Ginny Stopa Team.
John Madden did an outstanding job and his knowledge of the area and those businesses that provided services for my area was very helpful. For example he directed me to Tyndall FCU for my financing which no doubt saved me some money.
My experience could not have been better. John Madden was my realtor he went above and beyond . Can not praise him enough he walked me through what could have been a difficult process at a stressful time Love my home .
John Madden is simply the best. Very professional and perfect communication skills... Don't use another agent or you will be disappointed. From start to finish he was never unreachable and super attentive and knowledgeable to all my concerns!
My husband and I needed to move into a house ASAP since we were living in a second story apartment complex, have a one year old, and another one the way. There was no way I'd be able to carry two babies up and down the stairs. John Madden helped us out tremendously and always kept in touch regarding the purchase of our home. I'd recommend them to anybody!
We worked with John Madden and he helped us through every step. He listed our home and kept us informed throughout the process. He knew the area well, was very knowledgeable and respectful in dealing with some issues we had with our home. I would definitely recommend John to anyone needing help with finding or selling a home.
As first time buyers we are thrilled that we had such expertise to guide us through the purchasing process. John and his team helped us every step of the way and made our journey to home ownership very easy. John and his assistant Lois are very knowledgeable, very willing to answer any questions you may have and also prompt in dealing with any issues that may arise. We would not hesitate in recommending John and he will be the first person we go to should we ever be looking to sell or buy another property
Very helpful and kind. John knows the market and the area well. He takes pride in his work and goes above and beyond. We had a very great team of people working on our closing and though it took a long time due to the selling bank, John remained positive.
Had a great experience working with John Madden from the Ginny Stopa Team! He had great knowledge and experience, his responsiveness was amazing. I will highly recommend him to everyone because thanks to him and his team we are proud owners of our beautiful new home in Foley AL.
John Madden is the most professional and hard working realtor I have ever met. He did not try to sell us a house, but rather help us find the house we needed. He went above and beyond on several occasions to resolve issues. He quickly and professionally answered all of our questions, and I asked a lot of questions. He even came by the house after closing to assist with some moving issues. I cannot say enough good things about my experience with John.
John Madden was knowledgable and always available to answer our questions. He listed our home in a way that invited prospective buyers to check it out. We sold our home much faster than we thought it would sell and received the price we needed.
I had the pleasure of working with John Madden. John ha extensive knowledge of the market and his vast experience helped navigate us through all the details. His many years in the market also provided him with a great network for us to utilize during and after the sale.
His suggestions and recommendations were always right on target , saved us a lot of money and made the overall hectic experience of buying a new home much less stressful. I will only use John for any future home purchase, and would recommend him to any one of my coworkers, friends and family.
Outstanding job, cannot thank him enough.
I was able to find the perfect home, with the assistance of John Madden and the Ginny Stopa team. John worked late into the night for me at times, and was always available for my questions and concerns. Midway through closing, I lost my job so was unable to close, and John made sure my full earnest deposit was returned to me. Thanks again John.
We saw John's stellar reviews on Zillow. Our initial meeting was very informative and we immediately felt comfortable with his recommendations. The expertise of The Ginny Stopa Team was invaluable during the entire process. Our house was under contract with in 2 weeks. Thank for helping us move on to our next destination.
I contacted John Madden after a year with another agent. There was no fluff, he knew what we could get, and got the job done. Always quick to respond, at any time. I was 1500 miles away from my property, and John was able to take care of everything without a hitch. Very happy and impressed. Would absolutely recommend.
John Madden had our house under contract in 3 days at the agreed sales price. Then he had us through closing in 3 weeks, by coordinating the inspection, appraisal and survey needs for buyers. We are amazed and delighted. We want to thank him for his pleasant and professional manner, his local knowledge of our neighborhood and ability to market our property. He brings a strong skill set which includes enthusiasm and experience as well as responsiveness to our questions during the processes. His competent negotiations made it go very smoothly for all
My wife and I recently decided to move to Daphne from Mobile and happened upon John Madden as our realtor. He was able to find a house that met our needs and price point. The contract was drawn up and we had the house we wanted within 24 hours. Very efficient and very professional; we enjoyed working with him and would highly recommend him to motivated buyers.
John Madden provided straight talk and guidance, not sugar and spice and what I wanted to hear. Made it much easier to make rationale decisions regarding the sale of the house. He knows the market very well
My technical skills were challenged using the internet to do all the paperwork, but John calmly talked me through it. Lots of patience !
John was an exceptional real estate agent! I purchased from a distance and he even took additional pictures of the units for me! He was always there to answer questions, arrange for viewings and inspection. Never once did he reschedule. Thank you John for your excellent service.
John Madden is very knowledgeable of the Baldwin County area. He is very professional and patient and will not push you to rush a deal. He changed his schedule to accommodate my wife's visit to the area to homesearch.
Real estate agent John madden with remax by the bay was a pleasure to work with when buying my first home. Although I work offshore he kept in good contact with me and updated me frequently.
Very pleased with the whole experience . As first time home buyers, wasn't sure what to expect. John was very helpful thoughout the entire process, from learning what we liked and researching to find matches, to the closing process.
John Madden is an excellent agent. He worked diligently to sell our home. Many issues arose with the potential buyers. He worked tirelessly to address each issue promptly and to everyone's satisfaction. His strong negotiation skills resulted in a quick sale of our home. We will recommend him to anyone we know wanting to list their home.
My wife and I recently had the pleasure of meeting with John Madden. He was extremely knowledgeable and dead honest about the entire process of selling our home. Not once did he attempt to over-sell us, which was a big breath of fresh air!
We would highly recommend doing business with their team. All you have to do is look at their reviews and number of recent sales to figure out that they know what they're doing.
John stepped into my home and took full command. He was a step ahead of all the questions my husband and I had. His enthusiasm was contagious and gave us the confidence to go looking for a new home. When John said he would see you at a particular time, you could take it to the bank that the doorbell would ring exactly at that time! Any question, any time, was answered immediately. When we were given an offer that was discouraging, he brought it up to our expectations and made it happen. He knew how to close a deal, and we are grateful. Thank you, John
I am 61 years old, and my faith in realtors is restored with John. Impeccable integrity, hard worker, honest, straightforward. He took a very stressful thing and helped me through it. John went waaay beyonf what most realtors would do.
Through the process and my mixed emotions...he was there to provide a strong prescence. If you need a house sold...call him!
I have been very impressed so far!!!! Very good communication skills
John has a lot of knowledge that we lack in this process. He has pointed us in the right direction even though we are early in this process I feel that we are in good hands. I would definitely send other people his way..
I talked with John all the time .He helped me all the way through every thing He's the the best .We did everything long distance so i feel it had to be hard on John some time .I think I called him two to four times a day.Thank you John
Without a doubt, the most professional and knowledgeable realtor I have done business with in the area. John takes the time to do his research and thoroughly takes any guess work out of the process of buying or selling and I have utilized his services for both side of real estate I highly recommend him to anyone!!
I am originally from Foley, Alabama and was in town for Christmas with my wife to visit family when we found the house. We are both living in Los Angeles and had been largely put-off by the unpredictable and illogical market of the city, so we decided to drive by some houses around my home town one morning to see how they compared.
By chance John was the Realtor for all of the homes with which we had enough interest in to call for more information, and he promptly met us on location to show us around. I was impressed with his honesty and knowledge, he quickly realized exactly what we were looking for and steered us in the right direction. We found a house we loved, we made an offer, and it was accepted. John helped us through it all and did an outstanding job. The following are a few examples of work that he did that was especially helpful to me:
1. We had no Realtor working for us, and this was our first house. John was an extremely helpful resource to use even though he was working for the "other side". Had he not been as knowledgeable we might not have had the confidence to close without our own Realtor.
2. We wanted a termite bond from a larger, more reputable company than that which was currently covering the house. Since it wasn't a sticking item, John could have told us to arrange it ourselves, but he did the whole thing without a complaint. We are now covered by the company we wanted.
3. The AC in the house was old, and I was worried about it failing soon after purchasing the house. John had an inspector come to the house and conduct a thorough inspection on the AC unit. He wrote up a report, had the inspector sign it, and it became a part of the closing documents. This documentation eased my mind because it showed that the AC unit was working properly, and if it did fail it would help ensure it was covered under the home warranty.
4. We did not take the conventional financing route, and John was very knowledgeable about how our payment method would work and what needed to happen to make it go smoothly.
We closed on the house two weeks ago and already have it on the market to be rented. The entire process was so smooth it was scary. Thanks John for your help and I will be sending anyone looking for a home in Daphne your way!
John has been very helpful in trying to find me a home. He has been very patient with me and understands my wants and limits when it comes to purchasing my first home.
From the day we first met to the day we close John was always helpful and responsive.
All our concerns and questions were answered in timely manner.
Though, we were divided by a few hundred miles his use of technology simplified the whole process of buying.
We are grateful to John for his efforts to find the right people to make the purchased property ready to move in.
HIGHLY reccomend to any home buyer.
John was incredibly helpful in the whole home buying process. He found my perfect house and I got it for an amazing price. He is very knowledgeable with the detailed process of buying short sale and foreclosure homes. I would recommend him to everyone!
John was very helpful in giving us advise on the homes we viewed. We easily narrowed down the choices and found the one for us. We put in a bid and got it on the second try. Thanks John.
WOW! I cannot say enough good things about John Madden and the Ginny Stopa team. We had been through a long and unproductive cycle with another realtor and within hours of moving to John and the Ginny Stopa team we had multiple showings and they did not stop from there. John was always forthcoming with any information and advice needed regarding the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. We had an offer within 45 days of listing with John. John provided various communication avenues that allowed us to keep updated with everything going on. And what can I say about his patience, with someone who is OCD and has a HIGH sense of urgency, WOW!! All in all, the most fantastic experience of selling and buying property that I have ever had. John is forever on my speed dial when it comes to property sales and purchases!!!
John was professional, courteous and very knowledgeable.. He kept us very informed the entire process..having the right realtor makes all of the difference in buying a home. I would highly recommend his services..Thank you again John for making our dream a reality.
John and Ginny were great to work with. We were shown the types of houses we were interested in and it didn't take long to find the right one. It was a great experience. Thanks!
John Madden is an excellent real estate agent! He is extremely professional, patient, flexible, and devoted to client needs. He has extensive knowledge of the local markets and was willing to guide us throughout the entire process of selling and buying. He was always quick to respond to questions, and due to his exceptional skills and experience, he was quite accurate with respect to pricing issues. Whenever we encountered a new challenge during the process, he was readily available to encourage and advise us. My husband and I were able to sell our existing home in 3 months, and we closed on a fabulous new home approximately a month later! We could not have completed this process without John. We highly recommend John Madden for all of your real estate needs!
John was very helpful in every way. We recently bought a house in Daphne and lived four hours away. Any time that we needed him to check on anything or go by the house for us, he was more than willing. He promptly returned all our calls and answered all our questions. We were very pleased and would highly recommend him.
I loved working with John! This was my first time experience in selling my home and it went better than smooth and stress free. John took care of everything and was very accommodating to my schedule. The entire process was easy and professional. He walked me through each step of the way and I always felt like I could ask him anything at anytime. He even helped me coordinate the information for my move to a new city upon the sale of the house. I would absolutely recommend John Madden for any of your real estate needs.
My husband and I were first time home buyers and to say the least, we were clueless! John Madden answered every question, addressed any concern and always showed great patience. Throughout our home buying experience, we always felt as if we were John's only clients, because of the undivided attention he paid us. I couldn't imagine a better home buying experience. I would highly recommend John Madden to anyone!
We were put in contact with John Madden through my realtor friend Ginny Stopa, as they are business partners. From that day, we were treated like family. Anytime we needed an answer to a question, John was on the spot with an answer or at least a response. With only 4 days to submit a bid on a foreclosure, the process went smoother than could be expected for a very stressful life event. If we needed to get into the house to look at something or get something addressed, John made it happen. We just closed and are fortunate to have signed our life away after having a positive home buying experience. We're glad for realtors like John Madden and Ginny Stopa at Remax by the Bay!
I found John through google search couple months ago and hired him after read all the positive reviews! My decision was right! I moved to another state and tried to sell my home in Alabama. John is very professional and very well informed! One thing I loved about John and ReMax is that they always kept me informed on all the house hunters' searches! He helped me sold the house in few months.
I found John Madden to be very helpful and professional. I would definitely recommend him. I had special needs because I was looking for a lease/purchase, and he found the perfect house for me. Also, he was available for all my calls and requests. Yes, I would give him an excellent review.
Searching for an Alabama Realtor, I discovered John. Knowledgeable, professional and very well informed are, IMHO, the best way to summarized my relationship to date. My lawyers will be working with John to sell a home in Alabama - I live in South Florida so our relationship is "long distance".
John Madden has been extraordinary in his knowledge, expertise, responsiveness, and negotiation skills--he has gone way past the call to duty in helping me get needed repairs to the property I sold--he is a consummate professional. I recommend him without reservation.
I was new to the area and was lucky to have come upon John by accident. John was able to help me zero in on what was right for me very quickly.
John is a fantastic agent who made me feel comfortable through the whole home buying process. Thanks John!
John was extremely knowledgeable and helped us secure the home we wanted. Thank you for a JOB WELL DONE! We would highly recommend John and his team!!
John is very professional, has a high level of competency and knowledge of the market. His attention to detail and follow-up is impeccable!! We were very pleased with the personal attention he gave us!!!! We would highly recommend John.
When listing our home for sale, we required a specific type of realtor and one that was extremely knowledgeable with very complicated sales transactions. After interviewing several people, we spoke with John and instantly knew that he was a perfect fit. Still skeptical after hearing from other realtors, "we are experts at this", we contacted some of John's past clients. All reviews came back positive and we put our trust in him to be our representative when selling our home.
Throughout the process, John was a perfect team member. He kept us on track with all of the paperwork and was very knowledgeable when we had questions. The whole process seemed automated due to his helpful and diligent nature when receiving and gathering information.
We were scared that we would never sell our home and if we did, we would be too busy to do all that is necessary to perform such a task. Within months, our home sold and we are very please with the outcome.
To sum it all up, John is not only an expert at what he does, he is a valuable asset to anyone that needs assistance in selling their home.
John Madden was extremely helpful to us in the house buying process. We were moving from out of town and knew very little about the area. John knew what we were looking for in a home and kept us aware of properties that became available. He was very quick to respond to us and kept lines of communication open. Even after purchasing the home John remained in contact with us about the property until we were able to move in.
John was incredibly knowledgeable about the local market and very helpful throughout the entire home selling process. He had to complete multiple forms as part of my paid moving package and did so with patience and expertise. I highly recommend John Madden for all you home buying or selling needs.
John Madden helped us in a very difficult short sale during a time when most agents didn't even understand the process. He was incredible supportive during a very difficult time for my husband and I. I have never felt such a trust in an agent when selling a home. I always felt he had our best interest at heart and that he tried to give us every advantage possible. I have recommended him to many friends.
John was very helpful and stayed in constant contact with me on the status of the closing via email almost every day. He did the same this when we bought a home in our subdivision for our grand-daughter several years ago.
I have dealt with John on two occasions as a purchaser. He has been very helpful and very knowledgeable about the real estate in our area.. I would recommend him highly and will us him again.
John returns our calls immediately in all of our real estate dealings with him. Dealings with John are always honest and truthful. We feel we can trust John to be truthful and always work with us to our advantage -- not his. It is a pleasure to work with John.
John continues to be a wonderful resource for me. He not only helped me purchase a home , he has helped me whenever I needed any type of help with my home. He has been truly a great agent and unbelievable resosurce for me! I very highly recommend John Madden.
John Madden is the consummate professional. We first met him when we began looking for our home. From that time he was available to answer our questions; show the home to us several times; guide us through the long and time-consuming process of a short sale; negotiate with the seller's agent, HUD, and other agencies and individuals during this process; suggested a financial institution when ours couldn't meet the time constraints; and helped with the inspections and utilities connections. We highly recommend John Madden whether you are looking for raw real estate or an expensive home or even rental property. We are certain you will find him ready and able to assist you in all aspects of your search and purchase.
John Madden helped list and sell our house while maintaining the financial expectations we set. He exceeded our expectations and we walked away with more money from the sale of our house than we were expecting. He also helped find our new house and negotiated the price below our expectations. John was patient and energetic through the process and I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND John Madden!
We had our house on the market for three years before contacting John Madden. We had not had ONE offer in all that time. We sold our house because of John's expertise. We highly recommend him to anyone who has a home for sale.
John is extremely knowledgeable of the market and his integrity is beyond reproach. I would recommend working with John on any purchase/sale. I have worked with him on previous purchases and he has been extremely helpful.
In my opinion, John Madden is one of the most knowledgeable and experienced short sale experts in the business today in our marketplace. His understanding of the process was extremely valuable and his advice made all the difference in completing a successful sale.
John worked endlessly to find a home for myself--John called one afternoon and stated that he found a home being offered by a local builder. We walked through the home, made an offer and closed the loan within 2 weeks..All the follow up was handled by John. I highly recommend John to my friends and people interested in buying a home or selling a home!
I cannot say enough good things about our realtor, John Madden, to do this review justice, but I'll give it a try! As a military family, we have had our fair share of moves and dealings with realtors and John was hands down the most honest, knowledgeable and professional realtor we have ever dealt with. As are many homeowners these days, we were forced to short sale our home and before beginning the process, my husband and I interviewed several realtors and John was by far the most knowledgeable on the short sale and all the detail involved in the overall process.
We ended up qualifying for the HAFA (Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives) Program and John thoroughly explained the program, ensured we knew what to do every step of the way, and was always readily available to answer our many questions. John was straight forward with us as he navigated several challenges in dealing with the “red tape” that accompanies a complex process such as a short sale. When even the bank representatives were unsure of what needed to be done, John’s experience helped guide them back on track and ensured that the short sale kept moving forward and had an successful end.
Truly, John made us feel like we were his only clients. Without his help, we doubt that the short sale would’ve ever come to fruition. Because of his help and expertise, we were able to sell our home and move on to the next chapter of our lives. We are very, very thankful for his honesty, hard work, and unselfish approach to helping people in a difficult situation.
