John Heckenberg represented us in the sale of our home in San Jose and finding us a new home in Santa Rosa. His services on the listing side of selling our home went far beyond the services normally provided by real estate brokers or agents. He provided access to moving companies, storage services, house painters, repairmen and stagers and kept a watchful eye over their activities to ensure the work was done at reasonable prices. He kept on top of the closing process. Her also spent considerable time with us in looking for a home in Sonoma County, working with a local broker who he knew was more familiar with local conditions and prices. In reviewing offers to purchase our home, he always advised us to take the strongest offer, not necessarily the highest one when fraught with risks even though he might receive less commission. His honestly, integrity and responsiveness were of the highest standards. He worked hard for his commission. I would give him the highest recommendation to anyone wanting a competent broker representing them, in either a sale or a purchase.
John Heckenberg is the best out there. My husband and I are new to the Bay Area, he met with us the first day we were in town and and showed properties all over the Bay Area. He made sure to walk us through the real estate market, so we could make an informed decision on properties and find the right area for us. Through the whole process he was on our side, provided great information and gave us time to feel comfortable in making our purchase. He was at every meeting, took every phone call and was a great support system through the whole process. We are happy in our new property, and are excited to say it was a sound investment. This is thanks to John's knowledge of the market. I will always trust John to help sell and buy my properties and so should you.
John or Johny as I like to call him did a great job in selling our condo. What I like most about him is his low pressure consultative approach. He is a straight shooter but fair and was always available for us 24/7 guiding and educating us us every step of the way. Through his thorough knowledge of the local market, his strong network of buyer's agents and a solid marketing/pricing strategy we sold our condo in only 9 days at the price point we wanted. He is also a local celebrity as a featured agent on the T.V. show House Hunter's. I would highly recommend Johny and plan on working with him again.
I've know John for a while now and can honestly say that he is very good at what he does. His knowledge of real estate is quite impressive and can easily navigate the somewhat complicated Bay Area specific micro markets. In addition John, is extremely engaging and makes it easy to discuss those challenging topics i.e. loans, credit, short sale, foreclosure. John and his partner Patrick have made the process of finding a new home extremely enjoyable. I highly recommend Peninsula Fine Homes for all your real estate needs.
John was a huge help when we were selling our last home and buying our new home. His knowledge of the business and the area were key in our decision making process. When we were looking to buy, John drove us to every open house and even to houses that were not open to make sure that we got that one on one treatment. He even suggested houses that I had not picked, and it turned out he was right because we bought a house that was not on my list. We are so happy with the process, and would definitely use John again if and when we move on to our next house.
We can't say enough good things about Johnny Heckenberg and Heckenberg Realty & Associates for helping us successfully navigate the process of buying our first home. We've heard so many horror stories of trying to buy a home, especially in the Bay Area. Johnny was strategic, the good kind of aggressive, and so informative, he helped us get our first offer ever. Accepted with no counter-offers, despite the fact that there were 8 offers total on our house. Highly recommend him if you're looking to purchase a home here.
John is a true professional in the Real Estate Industry, I strongly recommend him for his services as a Realtor. He understands the local market, has a proven track record and knows the new process in the current market with dealing with short sales and properties owned by the banks and investors. I have done several transactions with John over the years and with out a doubt I will continue to rely on his services when I or anyone i know is in the market to buy or sell a home.
Working with John was a wonderful experience all around. His knowledge of the market, negotiations skills, and responsiveness helped me sell my condo after only being on the market for 1 week. I would Highly recommend John to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. He is extremely knowledgeable about the market and listens well and cares about his customers needs.
John is the most supportive, reliable, knowledgeable realtor that we've ever worked with. We'll definitely continue working with him in the future and recommended him to all of our friends. He helped us navigate the difficult first home buying process and he's a pleasure to work with and really cares about his customers.
This was my wife and my first home and John went above and beyond to guide us through the process. We were purchasing using a VA loan, which scares off some potential sellers but John always took the time to explain the process to sellers and their agents. We ended up in the perfect home all thanks to his hard work, patience and tenacity.
Johnny is the best agent I know. I will not hesitate to refer him to anyone I know. Not only is he experienced and know the area really well, he is patient, professional, and easy to work with. He took the time to listen to what our needs are, and he cares. He is what a real estate agent should be.
Whether you’re a homeowner, navigating all the emotional and physical transitions of selling your house, or a buyer trying to get the best deal in a competitive environment, John offers both the expertise of a seasoned real estate agent and the genuine care of a reliable friend.Contact Us
