John has a trusted advisor approach to helping his customers. He not only assists with the buying and selling process but brings valuable insights about the industry which obviously comes from years of experience. He has a great network of resources that can be helpful throughout the real estate transaction process. He is highly responsive and always seems happy to help. I would recommend John for any real estate needs you may have.

- Lila Murphy – Downtown San Diego

John really went the extra mile. First, his instincts to sell my house for nearly 100k more than the local neighborhood realtors said the home was worth was spot on. He delivered four offers in eight days at asking price. We moved out of state, and he helped coordinate a lot of work at the house. He was in constant communication and really took care of us. I have absolutely no complaints. He had our home on TV, over 100 people came to the open house. He really was excellent! He knows his business and kept us at ease! Thank you John, we really appreciate everything you did for us.

- J. Sipple – San Diego

We found our dream home and John secured the deal. There were several competing offers, and we had contingencies that were less attractive than the competition, but John was instrumental in closing the transaction. He communicates clearly and as frequently as you need support (I needed quite a bit and often at very early and late hours). If you are selling or buying, touch base with John – he is talented and brings honor to an otherwise challenging industry and process.

- Ray and Dean – North County

I know John for 3 years and have done 3 deals through him. I cannot say enough how knowledgeable, caring, on top of his game and still extremely humble and polite John is.

He can get the deal so flawlessly and smooth without being pushy to the buyer or crude to the seller.

He respects everyone and really sees what client needs and works on it until he gets it for you. He is there whenever you need him, texting, calling, and getting information.

I trust him doing our real estate forever and my 2 sons will use his expertise in future also.. Thanks so much for doing a fantastic job for us.

- Marshall Family, Rancho Santa Fe

I have worked with John over the past 4 years to purchase 2 properties in the La Jolla area, and we just completed the sale on another. He was very accommodative of my schedule for viewing homes and ultimately found me the perfect place… twice! John quickly learned what I was looking for and went out of his way to show me the places that fit my needs. John was extremely patient, and worked diligently to get me the best price possible on both buys, and even helped me get more than I was expecting on the property we just sold. I have referred John to other friends who have had the same experience. I would highly recommend John to anyone considering buying or selling a property in San Diego!

John was incredible throughout the home buying process. We lived in Long Beach and could only view homes on the weekend. John was extremely accommodating and had multiple options for us to view each time we came down. He was able to take our very specific needs and help us find a great home. I highly recommend John to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!

I would highly recommended John La Mattery. He was very professional, courteous and always available to answer questions. He was extremely knowledgeable about the market conditions and the area. The house sold for over the asking price and John was involved in every detail of the transaction. The house closed on time and without complications. He is hard working and cares about his clients.
