    Bought a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $175K in Pickford, MI.
    John Anderson helped my wife and me find a vacation / retirement home in a remote part of Michigans' Upper Peninsula. It was a real challenge since we live about 300 miles away from where we were looking. John was very accommodating - numerous times he cleared his schedule for an entire day and we drove around looking at home after home. John is a very friendly person and drives to provide what he promises. We were very pleased that we chose to work with John. We found our new home in Pickford, Michigan and are very pleased with it too. This was our first experience working with John and if we buy or sell another property we will likely consult him again.

    Sold a Single Family home in 2019 in Sault Sainte Marie, MI.
    Our situation is unique because we are a military family and live halfway across the country. We were informed by our tenant at the end of December that he would be moving out and rather than seek another tenant or risk the house being unoccupied, we decided to try and sell it. We were very anxious. This would not be an easy task: we had a mortgage obligation, it’s winter, we do not live anywhere near our property, it’s winter, we had a tenant residing in the property, and it’s winter!

    We called John Anderson and he patiently listened to us explain how we came about the property, what we did to it while we lived there, how we came to have a tenant living there, and our present situation. He immediately had a plan come to mind.

    On January 2, 2019 John listed the house but had to wait to enter the property for pictures until our tenant returned from out of town. Once he obtained those picture and the listing was live on the internet, he received many inquiries and after 5 days he was scheduling showings. After 10 days, we had our first offer. With genuine care and precise information, he let us know all the details of the offer. We decided to be patient and he respected our wishes. That patience paid off as shortly there after, we received a second offer for what we were asking!

    I believe John’s negotiation skills are unmatched. His expertise of the area he works, extensive knowledge of various loan types, and his detailed attention to us and our home made it possible for us to be under contract by the week following the offer.

    His communications skills and ability to coordinate between us, the inspector, the buyer’s agent, our tenant, our contractor, and the title company made our lives so much more smooth and relaxed especially since we weren’t even there.

    He masterfully completed this transaction and kept so much in mind while we were dealing with some hard deadlines.

    I highly recommend John Anderson if you need your property sold or are in the market and want a realtor who will listen to you and work hard for you to get what you want and in a timely fashion. There’s no doubt we weren’t his only clients during these 55 days our home was on the market. But he sure made us feel like we were the only people on his mind every time we called or texted or emailed him.

    Sold a Single Family home in 2016 in Cedarville, MI.
    John did a great job in selling our waterfront vacant land. He was very professional, prompt with return phone calls, paperwork done on time. No stress!! His negotiation skills were excellent. I would recommend John to buyers and sellers because his knowledge of our local area was very impressive.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $125K in Sault Sainte Marie, MI.
    John was our realtor initially when we began to search for a home. Due to unforeseen circumstances we were unable to purchase right then but John kept in contact with us and made sure we had someone to talk to when we were ready. We decided on a house that he personally was representing and John was more than helpful with everything. His willingness to work with VA loans and Veterans United home loans made the entire process far easier than it might have been. He was a fantastic agent and an all-around wonderful person to work with. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Thank you for everything John!!!

    Sold a home in 2018 in Pontchartrain Shores, Hessel, MI 49745.
    I had my home on the market for a calendar year with virtually know movement. As that listing expired, I found John through Homelight.

    He contacted me, evaluated the property and gave me an honest evaluation on value compared on market comps and trends.

    The agreement was signed. The house was shown and offer signed within 2 weeks of sale. Closed on and sold. The property was 280 miles from my home. John treated it as if it was his. Offered to clean, meet or find a contractor to fix some siding. He gave me as an owner the most important feeling he could. He cared and valued the opportunity!

    without hesitation, John Anderson would be my agent again!

    Sold a Single Family home in 2017 in De Tour Village, MI.
    John is vastly knowledgeable of the area. He is fast to respond to all questions and kept us informed ever step of the way. He sold our cottage in 2 months for very close to our asking price. Working with John was stress free and if needed we would definitely use him as our realtor again.

    Sold a Single Family home in 2017 in Sault Sainte Marie, MI.
    John is the best realtor. He went the extra mile on many occasions for us! When my building needed winterizing John was there with the antifreeze. When we moved out for new owner John was there helping us move. Much more to recount !

    Sold a home in 2017.
    John has gone above my expectations of what I ever expected in a realtor. My past experiences have been very poor but John has been outstanding and I would highly recommend him as a realtor. He loves his job you can tell that first, he is a hard & dedicated worker, is patient & kind yet straight forward & very honest. He is the only real actor I will ever use. He is the best.
