Mike accepted a job out of state and was set to start work in only a few weeks.  There were already 14 homes for sale in our neighborhood, more were coming on daily, and some of the homes in the neighborhood were on the market for 3 months or more! We needed to sell our house fast and for the most amount of money.

We interviewed several agents; we knew that Mike would likely already be in Alabama when our home was being sold. We needed an agent who would handle everything. Then a friend recommended John Parisek.

John helped us analyze the market and come up with an accurate asking price for our home. John showed us how his marketing plan worked to generate buyers. And John’s team helped in taking care of all of the details.

Our home sold for 98% of our original asking price and in just 20 days!  They did a wonderful job for us.

We will definitely recommend John and Team Parisek to our friends, family, and neighbors. To find out what your home is worth, call Team Parisek for a free quick over-the-phone home evaluation at 209-836-0200.

There were about a dozen homes up for sale in my neighborhood.  Some had been on the market for 90 or more days already.  I knew I needed to sell for the most amount of money but didn’t want to spend endless months with my house on the market, with the possibility of agents calling at any hour of the day to come and show the house.

When I met with John we looked at what the asking prices were in the neighborhood.  Then we took things a step further and looked at what was actually selling and what prices those homes were selling for.  I didn’t want to deal with cleaning the cobwebs out from the real estate sign.

I needed a Realtor with a no-nonsense approach who would tell me exactly what I needed to do to get my home sold.  John went over simple tips on what to do and what not to do in preparing my house for sale.  After meeting, I spent the next five days preparing my house.

John prepared me for 30 days of marketing time for my home, to be on the safe side.  After all, the days of the fast real estate market where homes sold faster than the “for sale” signs could go up were long gone.  With effective marketing, people, and experience my home sold in just 6 days in a slow buyer’s market!

John provided the marketing that my home needed to generate interest.  John’s team gave me feedback from buyers who had seen my home and helped in getting my home on the market.  John’s experience helped me price my home correctly and, more to the point, actually sell.

I will recommend John and his team to my friends, family, and neighbors.  They have the tools to get homes sold.  To find out what your home is worth call John Parisek for a free quick over-the-phone home evaluation at 209-836-0200.

We decided to sell our home and move back to San Jose.  We knew that we would have quite a bit of competition in selling our home. There were several homes on our street that hadn’t sold yet and it didn’t look like they would sell any time soon either. Being retired, we knew that we had to sell our home for the most we could.

We worked with John before when we purchased our home. We knew that he offered a straightforward opinion of what needed to be done.  That’s exactly what we wanted; the right information and advice to make the best decision regarding our home’s sale.

We received three offers in a buyer’s market in just 12 days!  We certainly were impressed.  But on our first day of escrow, the buyer chickened out.  John quickly called the second-best offer and firmed everything up with them.  We came to the close of escrow the buyers weren’t able to buy our home because they had lied on their loan application.  Once again we were stuck.

John put our home back on the market and sold it in just 6 days, this time he sold our house in half the time while still being in a slow buyer’s market. Well, the third buyers were able to buy our home.  You know the saying, “3rd  time is the charm,” it certainly was in our case.  John created so much demand for our house, we sold it for 103% of our asking price.

John and his team work like a well-oiled machine.  Their marketing works, they sold our home twice.  Their people were great; everyone on the team was courteous and professional.  Their technology helped keep track of everything that was needed.

We are definitely going to continue to recommend John and his team to people we know.

When we put our home up for sale we knew we would have to complete with new construction. We decided to sell our house and move to New Hampshire.

We didn’t want to be stuck owning two homes, or worse, selling our home with no place to go.

John sold our house in 7 days.

When we decided to sell our home last spring, we interviewed a few local Real Estate agents. Most were good at giving current market statistics.. What we liked about John was how well he listened – letting us talk first, asking pertinent questions. He had put together a detailed plan on our immediate area, the city as a whole and market value. He then gave us tips on some basic improvements that would make the home more presentable. Once we signed on – He immediately got the ball rolling – lost no time getting it photographed, listed. He made himself available and answered our every need. Always clear and concise. End result, the home was sold in 5 days! He even made himself available on moving day to help us out! If you are a serious buyer or seller, Then call the Parisek Team! You won’t be disappointed.

John was incredibly helpful and very approachable. I was purchasing my first home and he was very patient and kindly answered all the questions that I had. He was great at communicating with me and was available at almost any hour. I would recommend John to anyone who is looking for a knowledgeable professional to help buy or sell a home.

John Parisek is a consummate real-estate professional. He has always kept our best interests in mind. We were so impressed with his professionalism and honesty when we purchased our home that we were very pleased when he agreed to help us sell our home. He always kept us informed every step of the way, from arranging repairs with contractors, to inspections, to price negotiations with potential buyers, through final paperwork. We wouldn’t hesitate to work with John again if the opportunity arises.

Excellent, professional and well versed realtor. He is very detailed oriented, always willing to go out of his way to keep the process moving along, even spent extra time accommodating our special requests, and was always able to answer any question we had. He is very approachable and treats you like a person and not just simply a number. We want to make sure you understand and feel comfortable through the entire process. During the time we were selling our house, I was traveling quite a bit, but the process never stopped, John stepped up and did what I could not and never once dropped the ball. If you choose him as your realtor you will not be disappointed.

We were very pleased with the real estate services that John provided. We live out of state so it was very important to have a realtor that was proactive, represented our best interests, and kept us informed. John has a team of service providers that quickly made necessary repairs and prepared our home for the market. He helped us price our home competitively, took lots of pictures and marketed it beautifully and provided feedback on all showings. Even though we put our home on the market during the worst time of year, 10 days before Christmas, John still provided two open houses. He followed up with all inquiries, negotiated the best contract for us and kept us up to date on all developments. With his experience and well-informed knowledge of the market, he gave us valuable advice, saved us money and helped us close escrow early. He exceeded our expectations in every way. We would highly recommend his services to anyone.

From start to finish working with John was a pleasure. As first time home buyers the process seemed pretty intimidating when we first started. John took the time to explain every part of the process with us and was always able to answer our questions in a knowledgeable and timely manner. We’ve been in our new home for a few months now and couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out. We would highly recommend John to anyone who’s looking to buy a house.
