John is an exceptional realtor. He represented us during the purchase of two properties in Russian Hill over the past two years. Each time John demonstrated a high level of professionalism, attention to detail, and responsiveness. Importantly, with John's significant experience in San Francisco, he provided strategic advice on how to craft a successful offer in this highly competitive real estate market. He also had good relationships with the sellers' agents which clearly added value during the negotiation stages. Without John's assistance we don't believe we would have acquired the properties we did with terms we are pleased with. We definitely recommend him.

I live in Seattle and had to sell my house in San Francisco. John was so amazing. He treated me like family and helped me manage everything. I was nervous since I had never even met him face to face, he was a suggestion from a friend of mine, but he constantly updated me with any information I needed, took the time to explain things and also with much clarity (along with listening to my concerns and addressing them, sometimes even just personal concerns!), he was always within reach, he is incredibly knowledgeable about the market, made me feel like I was his top priority and also helped me with anything I needed (in terms of getting the house ready) using his very broad network. I felt like John was on my team helping me at all times. The process took a long time because of issues with the house and I think with the issues it had, most people would've walked away from me or told me tough luck. John not only took my challenging house situation on, he helped me in the whole process and also advised me on what I needed to do. I never had to come to SF and his predictions as well as his final delivery was beyond my expectations. I feel so lucky to have had John and trusted him to handle my most personal matters with my house. I highly recommend John for a true knowledgeable professional but also as someone who will treat you as the person you are with a good sense of humor.

John may be best described as honest, ethical, professional and helpful. He always took that extra step to assist. He didn't push properties on me. In fact, he went out of his way to paint a realistic pro/con portrayal of each home. He hooked me up with the right resources and took on more of the coordination than he should have to get my house sold. If you value ethics in business more than wheelin' and dealin', John's your man.

I have purchased or sold property with a real estate agent on five occasions now. John was involved in two of those transactions. I can categorically say that he stands head and shoulders above the other three agents I have used....He impressed me on both occasions with his professional demeanor, honesty, and knowledge of all aspects of real estate. I was also pleased--amazed actually--at John's willingness to answer all kinds of pesky questions and take care of the little emergencies that always seem to come up. In addition, never once did I feel manipulated or the subject of unwanted pressure during negotiations. Most of all, though, I appreciated his cautious, methodical way of doing business....I felt at all times that he was operating to protect our interests as well as his own.

John Asdourian is a true professional. I recently had John represent me on the purchase of a Russian Hill condo after looking for about six months. I benefited from John's years of experience, familiarity with neighborhoods and buildings. Additionally, his ability to negotiate and navigate this crazy market was impressive. John is extremely thorough and detail oriented as well as a good listener and honest. He maintained regular contact over the months of searching, during escrow and continues to maintain contact helping me resource different services as I get settled. He stayed within my budget and was very easy to deal with at each phase of the process. As a former real estate agent, I truly appreciated John's high level of service and would not hesitate to use him again in San Francisco.

John helped us both buy our Noe Valley condo in 2010 and sell it in 2016. He was great to work with both times! Very professional, knowledgeable, and honest. He'll always give you his honest assessment and not sugar coat things. We always appreciated this as we wanted the truth about the market and what was realistic - we did not want any surprises. Even in our recent closing, we had to find a number of sub-contractors last minute and he was great in lining everything up and managing the process as we had already moved out of the city. I highly recommend working with John. You'll be in good hands.

John recently helped us buy a condo in San Francisco. When we were assessing the (very hot) market - he was always straightforward, and never pushed us to buy. He even took us through the option of renting for a while to take more time to buy a place. We were impressed by his ethics, and deep knowledge of the San Francisco real estate market. John also helped to push the process along with the buyers agent, and our finance company. He arranged for inspections, and was there with the inspector when we were not able to be at the unit in person. He made the entire process transparent, and smooth - which is a great testament to his capability and diligence.

– Nathan W.

His knowledge of the real estate market in SF was fantastic and it was obvious he was extremely well connected in the SF community with the other agents. He was excellent in making sure the process was smooth and efficient and ensured we reached the desired outcome. Buying a home can be a traumatic process... John makes sure it is as smooth as possible and one that can be done in an efficient manner. A.S.

John is simply the best. He is knowledgeable, well-known, attentive, considerate, patient, honorable, warm. I am in a service profession (law) myself, so I understand how hard it is. But John makes it look easy. I have worked with him several times now; I can't imagine working with anyone else; and I recommend him every chance I get. C.C.

John has handled the purchase and/or sale of 7 pieces of property to date for us. He is honest and ethical, trustworthy and hard working. John always has your best interests in mind, even when they don't always jive with his best interests. An enthusiastic thumbs up! S.H.

We want to formally thank you for your diligent, dedicated and very informed approach in your role as our agent in a recent purchase. You were so wonderfully helpful, always one step ahead of events both routine and unforeseeable, and never missed a beat. That was quite remarkable in a barely over two weeks escrow period! You always had our best interests at heart and we are grateful to you for that as well. Many a realtor could learn from you! J. R. Home Buyer San Francisco, CA

It was a real pleasure doing business with you as the selling agent. It has not been usual over the years to have such a good agent on the other side of the table. Your client was fortunate to have you acting on their behalf. C. E. Realtor, Representing Home Buyer San Francisco, CA

If only the real estate industry had more professionals like yourself. You are the only agent I would recommend without reservation. I appreciate you working with us in establishing a selling price that was accurate in today's market. Thereafter, you showed much attention to detail, which facilitated a quick close. D. B.

Thank you for the great job you did on selling our property. Not only did we get the price we wanted, but the sale went smoothly thanks largely to your efforts! This was my third experience working with a real estate agent. You were the only agent of the three not to apply unwanted pressure during critical points in the negotiation process. I was also pleased with the competent tradesmen you found to do work on the building. L. R. Home Seller San Francisco, CA

This is to let you know what a truly fine job you did as my agent for the recent purchase of our new property. You were thorough, knowledgeable, and well prepared. You showed genuine interest in a good fit, rather than a quick sale. And your integrity was never in question. C. C. Home Buyer San Francisco, CA
