Helped me buy home
John was very helpful in helping us procure the "For Sale by Owner" property we wished to buy. We had not had any luck with getting a call back from the owner and asked John to intercede for us. After several weeks, John was able to contact the owner and setup an appointment for us the same day. We were anxious to offer on the property but John cautioned us on making too quick of a decision. We viewed the property again and then made an offer. John was very nice about co-ordinating the inspections and keeping us informed on items we needed to follow up on. Less ... More

Listed and sold a home
John and his associate, Chris, guided and advised us all along the way in our purchase of a new home, as well as in quickly selling our former home. We love our new home!!! Thanks, guys!!!

Helped me buy home
John is, without a doubt, the best possible realtor I could have been matched up with during my first home buying process. He was incredibly patient and understanding with me as conditions and ideas changed. He threw out lots of questions to make sure he knew exactly what I needed and wanted, and came up with lots of great suggestions to balance those out. I can not say enough great things about John and his methods and guidance. I would absolutely recommend his services to anyone looking for their first starter home, dream home, and anything in between. Less ... More

Helped me buy and sell homes
John is very professional and was always available when I needed him. The house I needed to sell was in a tough to sell area (high amount of renters) but that never stopped him. He was quick to point out the pros and potential issues with the house and gave us great ideas on how to turn the issues around. The buying process through John was just as good. We had a lot of wants (particular school district, size house, large yard, no busy streets, etc, etc) and he very patiently went through many houses with us and took his time explaining any pros and cons he felt that particular house had. Thank you John! Less ... More

Helped me buy home
Our family's experience with John marginal at best for many reasons. He's earned a one-star in process expertise and responsiveness from us. We contacted John to buy a home listed in our hometown. Several things did not go well. Part of it was the process of buying a home through HUD. He did not read paperwork that he gave to us at times, causing confusion in what he was telling us and what was required. He collected a deposit of $750 and then later came back for $250 more. He did not return our call during one part of the process. We later found that he went on vacation. We ended up working with his associate up to the closing (who did a good job). There was money we were supposed to get as part of the contract, but did not. He was supposed to follow-up with HUD and after following up with him a few times and he did not have an answer, we just gave up. It's as if the contract meant nothing. Even if HUD was being difficult, he still never resolved the issue with us by telling us what HUD decided. John got his pay though. We feel that there were other things. I would say you be the judge if you decide to use John. He has his side of the story. We won't be doing any more business with him though. Less ... More
Response fromJohn Rettich
Being in customer service for so long, it is heartbreaking to hear a client is not satisfied. Buying a HUD home, as this client did, requires a ton of patience. In this particular transaction, there were 26 pages of legal forms to sort through. We worked hard to answer the family's questions. The earnest money amount was changed by $250 by HUD and he received all of those funds back at closing. In addition, he did work with an assistant through the inspection process and during my vacation. He was told about my process up front. At closing, HUD refused to pay title company fees which were $300. I went to HUD to complain but no one cared. The client was told 3X I was getting no where. While I am sorry to hear this client is unhappy, I know we did a good job for him. In the end, we negotiated the home down 15K on price and put an extra $1200 in tax money in his pocket. I welcome the opportunity to show any client what I can do for them and let them be the judge. Less ... More

John was great from the beginning! He was always available for consultation and showing homes and when he wasn't he had a great back-up, Chris Focht! He gave his honest, professional opinion which was very helpful and aided us in choosing a home that we love!!! I would definitely recommend John to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home. Thanks John!

Helped me buy home
Could not ask for more from John. We were first time home buyers. We worked very hard to get to were we are. He went above and beyond to find us our home. Even after the home was taken care of he was still there when we need some help with some tasks. When we are ready to sell down the road we will go to John again with out even thinking about it. He did his job well as a realtor but also made us feel like he was a friend. He will find you the home you have been looking for. Thanks John Less ... More

Showed me homes
I was very pleased with John and all the help he provided... He took the time to explain the buying a house process, was always available for showings when we wanted to look at homes. He was able to refer us to a very knowledgeable lender at Chase Bank who got us pre-approved. We had a very stress free buying experience, which was important as first time home buyers! An exceptional Realtor....Thank You!!

Mr Rettich has helped us find the perfect house for us! He listened to what we were looking for, and went right to work. He was very good about pointing out things within each home that might be cause for concern, as well as features that made the house a great value! We will recommend him to our friends. We feel very comfortable with the buying process knowing that his team is there to help. Extremely well versed in the home buying process.
