I treat my clients like family...and it shows! Almost everyone below is also available as a reference upon request (some have moved out of state). Yes, my clients love working with me that much! - John
It was our first truly positive experience...
"John Contabile is a consummate professional. John provided guidance and expertise in every step of the process from staging through closing. John communicates clearly and in a timely manner. I would highly recommend John, this was not our first real estate transaction but it was our first truly positive experience. John was there for us every step of the way, he anticipated any issues and made sure we were prepared, we were never blindsided by unpleasant surprises."
Michael and Tina Seybert, Chino Hills (Sellers)
John was always available…
John was great to work with in selling my house. It was complicated with my travel schedule up and down the west coast and John was always available to come down and assist any situations that arose. Highly recommended!

John is very good at the hand holding of nervous, inexperienced sellers…
John is very good at the hand holding of nervous, inexperienced sellers. He explained the listing process very well, gave great advice for prepping our house, and then met with us multiple times while our house was on the market as the market declined. Each time he patiently answered all our questions and showed us spreadsheets of local sales and listings. We valued his responsiveness, transparency and constant good humor. He hung in there with us to get our house sold.

Helpful with suggestions for renovations…
John was able to sell my condo in Diamond Bar and was helpful with suggestions for renovations that it needed. We got a decent price and it sold in a reasonable amount of time. He was helpful and did a professional job.

Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value…
A little over a year ago, we sold our house using Curtis Realty with the help of John Contabile. Our first contact was with John, and he assured us that the entire firm would help us throughout the process. They were communicated promptly, and explained everything that was going on. They helped us assess the bids we got and the bidders. They got us a very good price as well. Above all they were honest with us about everything. Plus they're fun to talk to.

A calm-headed liaison between us and the seller…
When my wife, baby, and I moved to Claremont we met John who was the listing against on the townhouse we rented. He was friendly, pleasant to work with, and knowledgeable about the area. When we decided to purchase a home in the area, working with John was an easy decision. He knows the Claremont / LaVerne / Upland areas well and offered honest opinions about neighborhoods and value. He was readily available for inspections and acting as a calm-headed liaison between us and the seller agent. We navigated a tedious closing with his expertise and are thankful we worked with him as a result. Tremendous effort and personable agent. We will definitely work with John again.

We WILL be working with John again…
We truly enjoyed working with John!! He helped us sell our house in Lakewood and helped us buy our home in Chino Hills. When we decide to move again, we WILL be working with John again. Thanks for making the stressful selling and buying process as smooth as possible.
Ken & Christy H.
Sincerely dedicated to helping us get what we wanted...
John, above all else, was sincerely dedicated to helping us get what we wanted and making our transaction smooth and painless. Our other experiences have been that the agents want to get the transaction to go through as quickly as possible without our interests being a priority. I didn't want to experience that again, and we were so happy with how John handled everything and how he treated us. He was detailed and on top of everything the whole time. He was very patient with us and was great about communicating everything that was happening during the transaction.
Since we purchased a 1920's cabin on Forest Service land there were some unique things about the process. John went above and beyond - doing lots of research and spending lots of time calling people. He gave us solid assessments of what our risks might be and was very supportive in helping us work through our concerns. I will be recommending him to family and friends.

Professionalism, quality, and responsiveness.

I don't think this transaction would have been near as easy if it weren't for him and his team...
Working with John Contabile was a pleasure, I don't think this transaction would have been near as easy if it weren't for him and his team. He is professional, knowledgeable, and stayed in communication with me every step of the way. I will definitely recommend him to my family and friends for any of their real estate needs. Thank you John! You are the best of the best!

After several attempts to sell with other agents John sold our house within a week of listing...
John demonstrated the skills of a seasoned real estate professional. After several attempts to sell our house with other agents/agencies, John came through and sold our house within a week of listing. John and his team made us feel very comfortable with the real estate process. My wife Julie and I would highly recommend John to anyone interested in selling their home.
Stephen & Julie - Claremont (Sellers)
Complete opposite of typical Realtors...
Prior to finding John I was working with another Realtor from a different company. This Realtor was waiting for me to find properties to look at and never treated me like a client. Once I found John I experienced the complete opposite. He immediately contacted me to find out what my needs were. John's personality and drive to find me a new home is what made me excited to use him. He was not pushy and would go around my work schedule in order to view homes. My whole experience buying a new home for my kids and I was a pleasure because of John being on it at all times. In the past, I used another company to sell a house and my Realtor was more concerned about the buyers than me. It was none stop issues all the way to the end of closing. John was aware of those issues and he made sure no issues arose. If there were any issues he must have dealt with them because I experienced none.
Scott S. - San Dimas (Buyer)
Very knowledgeable about the areas we house hunted in...
Our agent was very knowledgeable about the areas we house hunted in. We were able to see enough homes to make comparisons in size and price to finally decide on the right one for us. We relocated from Sacramento area and were totally satisfied and strongly recommend John!
Bob & Susan - Anaheim (Buyers)
John went above the scope of duty...
This was my first time buying a property, and going through the process, which can be extremely confusing, John was patient, and attentive to detail. He was always willing to explain things to me which I didn't understand. John Contabile went above the scope of duty for me during this process, and I cannot thank him enough!!!!
Kenneth W. - Glendale (Buyer)
Saved me from a bad deal and even got my deposit back after I had removed my contingencies...
Great person and agent. He saved me from a bad deal and even got my deposit back after I had removed my contingencies! So happy I worked with him to both sell my house and buy my condo.
Syd S. - Laguna Woods (Seller and Buyer)
We will work with John again...
John is great and trustworthy. We will work with John again when we purchase our next home in Temecula.
Linda & James - Seattle to Temecula (Buyers)
Saved me $20,000 - I'd hire him again...
He was so helpful. It was my first house hunt ever and he was able to walk me through every step. He listened to my needs and wishes for a home and delivered without losing time. He was very flexible with my schedule too. Also, he was able to negotiate $20,000 off of the accepted price with a recent comparable sale!
He was great! If I buy a new home I'd again hire him as my agent.
Ozlem A. - San Dimas (Buyer)
John made it happen for us...
We are very happy with our new home and John and my loan officer made it happen for us!!!
Ivette M. - Covina (Buyer)
Talk about responsiveness...
While my loan consultant wanted me to use his broker, I am glad I selected John. Not only did his website introduce me to my home, John agreed to meet me there within 3 hours of me calling him. Talk about responsiveness.
Chris H. - San Gabriel Valley (Buyer)
Our satisfaction is the greatest testimonial...
Our satisfaction is the greatest testimonial statement that I could give. I don't know if we would have experienced this if we dealt with our first broker. I would like to thank Realty One Group for assigning John to us. You have one great agent, don't lose him. He's a GEM.
Green G. - Covina (Buyer)
Sensitive to client's needs and dedicated to his work.
Coco G. - Glendora (Buyer)
He makes you and your needs a priority...
John is one of the most honest and hardworking agents I know. He knows you have many choices of agents and understands that when you contract with him he makes you and your needs a priority.
He is creative in his approach to you and your objective. You will not be disappointed.
Mary Jane & Kim - Upland (Sellers)
Trustworthy, honest and went above and beyond...
I had the pleasure of working with John Contabile for several months. It has been said that moving and buying a new home can be one of life's bigger stressors. This can be true, but I was fortunate enough to work with John through this process. He took a lot of time on the weekends to show me a variety of locations and properties. This was greatly appreciated because I know weekends are time for family an relaxing. It wasn't a fast process and we looked for several months. He was always patient and never steered away from what I was looking for. To be honest I wouldn't have found my place if it wasn't for him. I am very grateful for his role in the process. He is trustworthy, honest and went above and beyond to find the best possible fit and financial investment for me and my family. I would recommend him highly to anyone looking for an agent who has ethics and the client's best interest at heart!
Jon D. - Duarte (Buyer)
He is interested in what you are looking for and he wants you to have it...
John was every bit the professional we hoped he would be. What's more, is that he is interested in what you are looking for and he wants you to have it!
John's a genuinely friendly guy and his disarming personality makes him easy to talk to. At no point was there ever a question (and we had many), that he didn't have an answer for. If he didn't, he got one and we didn't have to wait long to get it. He also accommodated our schedule to enable us to view homes without the added pressure of needing to complete the viewing in any sort of hurry.
We also had a few moments during the process of the purchase when my wife and I had concerns, and John did a fantastic job of explaining what we needed to have explained. When we had questions about our paperwork, he made sure he got what information we needed from our lender, even on busy weekends when we didn't have the time to get it ourselves. He made us feel much more at ease about what was happening. He was also great about initiating contact with us. We never felt like we had to chase him around.
There are many instances that we could list where John went beyond the call. That's remarkable nowadays because all too often, we can only hope that simple competence is the acceptable standard of results. He is far more than competent!
We would happily say that John is the guy you want in your corner when you enter into looking for a home. He won't let you down. Thanks again for everything, John! We love our new home.
Chad & Joanna - Glendora (Buyers)
We always seemed to leap not jump over every hurdle...
Despite every challenge thrown his way, we always seemed to leap not jump over every hurdle with phenomenal results. Not only did John assist us through a very difficult sale transaction, he tirelessly spent many weekends and hours with us finding a new home to live as well. Much appreciation to John and his team.
Josephine P. - Chino Hills (Seller)
Easy, fast and efficient...
The process was made easy, fast and efficient with the help of John. A pleasure to work with in closing escrow. I would definitely consider using John again for listing my home or selling a property. Thanks for your help.
Arden B. - Claremont (Seller)
Willing to help get your home ready by not only making suggestions but getting his hands dirty...
John is very personable and willing to cater to the needs of his clients. He is willing to help get your home ready for showing by not only making suggestions but coming in to do the work and get his hands dirty.
