John has helped us buy 2 properties. A five unit in Montclair and a five unit right off Piedmont Ave, both in Oakland. For both properties, he handled everything from appraisals, inspections and dealing with some difficult issues on the properties. He even walked me through my first vacancy, everything from creating the listing on Craigslist to co-hosting the open house. John made it all look easy, as he has so much experience as an apartment building owner and real estate expert. As an owner, I still reach out to John when I have an upcoming vacancy or any issues with my properties. Absolutely the best person t work with if you are buying or selling an apartment building.
