We moved from another state and did not realize how different real state is. We had tried another agent and the knowledge of this to look for wasn't there. Then a friend told us about Johannes and looking at our first house with him, we were so impressed that he was took the initiative and was telling us about the good things and bad things in the house. He is so knowledgeable about the areas, items in the house to look for etc. I can not tell you enough about this man and his skills. Also he takes it to another level and helps us through the loan process. We were struggling on who we picked for a lender and had some problems; however, he was on the phone straightening all this out also. It was a pleasure with working with you Johannes and we will recommend you to anyone else looking for a house. Thank you for finding our new AZ home.

We were recommended by a friend to use Johannes to purchase our home. We are currently selling our home and searching for a new home. Johannes has been amazing! He is so easy to work with and pays close attention to what we want and need. I am so happy that our friend recommended him to us. I am certain that he will help us to find just the right home! Thank you Johannes!!

Johannes has been very professional and helpful in our home search process. His education in architecture gives us another perspective when looking at a home. He goes the extra mile to make sure that we are comfortable with a given home. Agents who care are hard to find! Johannes is also extremely knowledgeable of the Phoenix area, which is a major plus. Johannes has kept us well informed of the real estate trends and has good business sense. He is a pleasure to work with and I will definitely recommend him to anyone interested in purchasing a home.

This was a difficult move because it entailed selling property in AZ and NC. This has also been difficult because of recent highs and lows & changes in the real-estate market. We needed a mature, knowledgeable, informed, calm, and accommodating agent that could help us through selling two properties in AZ while purchasing a new one in AZ that would meet our retiree needs. He is the best real-estate we have dealt with since 1969.(10 home purchases later)

Johannes was awesome! He showed us multiple properties that fit our budget till we finally found OUR object. We as permanent resident aliens also had a couple of problems to find the right financing but Johannes connected us with the right guy and we got it handled. He was always patient and never treated us into something we didn't want! We highly recommend Johannes as knowledgeable, trustworthy professional, ... realtor!!! 5 Stars from us!

This was my second time purchasing a home with Johannes and we could not have been happier with the service we received. Johannes was understanding when we halted our search earlier in the year, continued to update us with important market info, and was right there to help us when we resumed our search a few months later. We really appreciated his patience in the search and communication throughout the transaction. I would recommend him for a second time!

Johannes stayed by our side for over 1.5 years looking for a home. Mostly it was due to us not being prepared to buy in the rising market and my own pickyness. We are very happy with our nice new home now. Thank-you for all your help and once we are all settled in, we will be inviting him and his wife to a BBQ!

We have been working closely with Johannes for the past 1-2 years on finding a home in the AZ area. This was not by choice on the long timeframe, but due to certain obstacles on our part of not really being ready to purchase a second home. Johannes hung in there with us, always trying to find us the perfect home we wanted and taylored to our needs. We finally found one this past Father's Day weekend and now everyone is happy! I highly recommend Johannes to anyone who comes to me. As long as you have done your homework on your end, Johannes does his own.

We enjoyed working with Johannes again. He offered good advise, was prompt, was quick to respond to email/calls/text messages, and always kept us updated on the status of activities associated with the purchase of our new home and the sale of our previous home. I was a little disappointed with Johannes' evaluation of the Mold Inspector's attitude, but understand that we were all frustrated during the process of identifying the mold issue and remediating it. Thanks Johannes! We're happy with the sale of our old home and delighted with our new one. I'll refer friends and neighbors when they're interested in buying/selling!

Johannes was great. He was always prompt, he quickly figured out what we wanted in a house and then showed us houses accordingly. When viewing each house, he indicated the positive points that we might want to consider and, based on what he knew we were looking for, he casually mentioned the draw backs, if there were any. He was always pleasant and very ccommodating. I could always reach him........that's pretty remarkable!

I am a recent widow and this is the first time I am purchasing a home on my own. Johannes made everything very easy for me. He is very professional, very kind and very intelligent.

Johannes is very responsive to his clients. He also seems to know where the best houses are and can describe why one house that seems to be a good buy might not be because of some factor that the buyer might not think about, such as being right next to a major highway. He really does his homework for his clients and just goes the extra mile in every way. He's the best real estate agent I've worked with....(and I've worked with several.)

Johannes has worked with us before and as buyers and we were very pleased with the level of attention he gave to our search. When we decided to sell there was no one else we wanted to work with. As usual, we were very pleased with the outcome and our importance to Johannes as clients. He is also quite personable and easy to work with. We would recommend him highly.

Johannes was EXCELLENT from start to finish. He responded within an hour of my initial email request to view a home via email and a phonecall. He worked around my schedule and based the search on my wants\needs..he arranged to view houses and within 2 days I had found 'my' house. He pointed out factors that I was willing to overlook and assured me that we would find the right house. One of the many great things that I loved about Johannes was that he was very good at communicating to me whether he had any news or not..he answered all my calls and texts. He went above and beyond and made sure that I was taken care of through the entire process. I have referred all of my friends and an old coworker is currently working with Johannes.

He only cares about his commission. Lack of communication when needed. Not to mention negotiating with the builder, he actually helps the builder to convience me to accept unreasonable deals. Sometimes I felt I had to deal with "two builders" agent just because they seem to talk a lot under the table. There are a lot of commitment made prior to signing the contract but not many gets done. Attitude completely changed after I sign his commission agreement. If you are a buyer and looking for an agent, suggest you to stay out of this person. I'm not sure how he get his above average reviews, I'm just completely unsatisfied with this agent and I had a very bad experience as a first time home buyer.
Response from Johannes
12/24/12
Good morning Kochin and Bin, Iím sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your home buying experience. I provided you with all the services that one should expect (and must expect) from an experienced Realtor who has sold more than 100 new construction homes in the past 15 years. I believe the true disappointment for you was the fact that ZipRealty could not provide you with financial incentives outside of closing which is illegal in the US. That appears to be a different practice in your home country. The good news is that the homes that I found for you appreciated already more than $20,000 :)

I don't know why we need to hire an Real Estate who is totally standing on the builder sides. 1. For almost all the request we have, his answer was always, well, I could try, but I don't think we will be able to make any change. 2. Totally not responsible for my house building progress. The builder built my home in the wrong orientation which delayed my closing for 4 months. Johannes didn't pay any attention to my house until I told him it was built incorrectly. 3. No follow up for my house closing and I have to notify him about the status. 4. He told us at the beginning he knew the construction very well...but I didn't get any help from at all. So it's kind of useless for me. He is a good guy but just not very helpful for my house purchasing.

Johannes was a great real estate agent to deal with. He is very professional and updates buyers frequently. He is very knowledgable about the market and up to date with prices in desired area. He leaves his clients with space they need to make inteligent decision without being pushed to make a purchase. We truly enjoyed Johannes service. He definitely helped us to understand all legal aspects related to short sale. He is very patient and understanding. Dealing with Johannes we felt like being taken care of by a family member. We strongly recommend Johannes for new and experienced buyers. Darek and Maggie

I spent two day looking at houses with Johannes Rath in the Gilbert/Mesa area. Each morning he was prepared with packets of information about the listings, yet as we looked at the homes, he listened well about what I was looking for and was very nimble in adjusting the search. His 26 years of knowledge about the neighborhoods in the area was useful in protecting my investment. Also, his explanation of market forces at play in Phoenix was helpful in my decision-making. His patience for all my questions was admirable. The search continued after I returned across country. Johannes would send me listings to consider over the ZipRealty website right to my email. That was very convenient because the multiple pictures of the properties was enough for me to make a selection. Meanwhile, he would check out my selections and call or text me with his report. I was comfortable doing this because during the two days with him I came to trust Johannes and found his background as an architect invaluable. He is a true professional. He's very thorough and practical and inspires confidence. I felt I was making good home buying judgement with his advice.

We cannot say enough about Johannes! We started out thinking we knew what we were looking for in an AZ property, having picked out about 6 different homes to view. After seeing how disappointed we were with what we had chosen the first day, Johannes selected about 6 new homes for us to see the second day of our search. All of them actually fit with what we were looking for. Johannes knew what we wanted before we did! He led us through the whole experience and made it a very easy process from submitting the bid to the final signing. We give Johannes the highest rating and have and will continue to recommend Johannes and Zip Realty.

Johannes Really asked all the right questions and really listened to what it was that my wife and I were looking for in a home and he found quite a bit of homes in the areas that we were looking. I really liked his honesty when it came to the show. The little details that he knew we wouldn't like or if we noticed something. He was very attentive to our style even if it didn't go with what he liked. I like that about a person who can put their personal preference aside and focus on the one whom their helping. What also impressed me was his knowledge and his credentials in the field of Realty and Architecture. I would definitely recommend him to others to help them find their Dream home.

My home search was not very extensive, as I made an offer on one of the first homes I found. Therefore, my work with Johannes was not very extensive. He was very responsive, especially relating to questions prior to closing regarding the Settlement Statement.

I was dissatified with Johannes's service. When he showed us a house he was very high pressure to sell, and he acted like we should be satified with something that we weren't satified with. For instance, we were in a house and I got mad because I really wanted another house and he told me that I ruined the deal. I got mad and walked outside to my car and wanted to leave. He kept talking to my husband and he pointed his finger at me from across the street. He got mad because I liked none of the forclosures that he was showing us. Now, I did take him to my home builder but that was because I figured ALL relasate agents were shabby at this point. I did get a good discount by bringing him to the home builder.

Johannes was always on top of everything. We had problems with both our side and the sellers side. I truly believe if Johannes didn't intervene on our behalf (several times), we would not be in our home right now. He was always professional and courteous. We have dealt with many realtors over the years, and Johannes is by far our favorite.

Johannes was completely professional with his dealing with us and with the other various agents/properties we visited. He is extremely well versed on real estate rules and regs for the state of AZ and brings to the table his knowledge of architecture, building and property management. Johannes will do whatever it takes to answer all of your questions and will research a question that he may not have the answer to at the time you may have one. All in all, we were very pleased with our experience with Johannes.

There was a major disconnect between Johannes and my representative in Arizona, myself, as well as my lender, as far as his personality and attitude are concerned. He told my rep in Arizona that he would only show her houses once... he was arrogant in how he expressed himself and rude to her, as well. My representative chose Zip Realty as she had wonderful previous experiences with 2 other agents, Brian White and a Micaela Amaducci. However, Johannes came across almost dictatorial, saying what he would show my rep, that he would not take her back to see certain homes again, if she needed to see them, and overall disagreeable. My rep contacted the lady listed on the website to have another agent help her, but was told that we would still need to work with Johannes. What I don't understand is this: why in the world do you even have an area on your website that asks if a client would like to work with another agent, if you don't honor the request?? If it wasn't for my rep in Arizona saying that Zip Realty is good... I would never choose to work with Zip Realty ever again, based on my experience with Johannes Rath. He handled the paperwork adequately, but the entire transaction was unhappy, because of him. Mimi Bardell

Es war ein gro???es Gl???ck Johannes kennen gelernt zu haben. Wir h???tten uns keinen besseren Agenten vorstellen k???nnen und sind so auch heute noch mit unserer Kaufentscheidung sehr zufrieden. Johannes hat uns von Anfang an begleitet und ist uns mit Rat und Tat zur Seite gestanden. Wir haben uns zu kewinem Zeitpunk unter Druck gesetzt gef???hlt. Selbst als wir uns schon f???r ein Objekt entschieden haben, hat Johannes uns noch Drei weitere Objekte gezeigt. Auch er wollte, dass unsere Entscheidung die richtige ist. Des weiteren ist uns das ???beraus gro???e Fachwissen von Johannes zu Gute gekommen. Vielen Dank Johannes.

Johannes Rath worked with us at every step of the process. He was knowledgeable about his market, knew the ins and outs of navigating complex real estate transactions -- lenders, title companies, HOA, comparative market analyses. He responded to every e-mail and phone message I sent him promptly, educationally, and professionally. He sweat ALL the details, ALL the time. Thanks. Tom and Pat McGovern

Johannes is great!! First, he listened to what kind of home/neighborhood we were looking for, and then he helped us to find the right home for us! He was very organized in showing us homes during our search. He took us to the homes we wanted to see, and he also pointed out the convenient services in those areas. Since we are new to the Phoenix area, he was able to help us with the various areas and neighborhoods. Because of his architechtural background, Johannes was able to spot features in the homes that we might have otherwise missed. We really valued and appreciated his input on the homes. Once we found the right home for us, Johannes continued his excellent service. His correspondence throughout the closing process was outstanding. He followed through to the very end of the transaction, and he even suggested several sevices, such as housekeeping, to help us get settled into our new home. We highly recommend Johannes to others looking for that perfect home. We will certainly use Johannes for our future real estate needs!!

Are 23 year old son was the one to buy the home. We went to Arizona, during Christmas, to help him find the house. This gave us a two week time line. Johannes was very helpful and went right to work looking for homes in are price line and in the decided area. We house shopped for several days and found the one we all liked. When we found there was already a bid on the house, it was time for us to leave for Ohio. Johannes kept looking, with our son and was able to find a house he liked. We couldn't have been more pleased, as he need all the help he could. We are all glad Johannes was the agent to work with and when we decided to move to Arizona, he will be the agent we will use.

After showing us the houses that we requested, Johannes got an idea of what we were looking for and eventhough we were satisfied with the house we saw first, he went home and did some research and found us the PERFECT house at the price we were looking for the very next day. Johannes went far beyond our expectations of a realtor and helped us every step of the way in purchasing out first house. He was patient in explaning the process when we got confused and helped us work with the lender to make sure we got the best deal. We highly recommend Johannes and have already done so to all our friends looking for a new home.

He appears interested in getting his commissions only. He said he is a buyer's agent. but he didn't help to negotiate in reducing price, didn't do market analysis to see if the offering price is reasonable, he didn't help when the seller didn't finish punch list items after the house was closed almost one month... etc. there were lots of things going wrong with this agent. he bragged about what he can do, but in fact he didn't anything and was not willing to help with anything, he is completely a jerk....

We selected Mr. Rath from your website based on his length of experience and his areas of experience. I had spent numerous hours over many days searching the web in order to select a realtor. After much disappointment, I happened upon ZipRealty. The combination of excellent web resources and a realtor with the right areas of experience cinched the deal. Johannes did not disappoint our expectations in any way. He gave us very good advice, had a good sense of value and location, and understood what we were looking for. He listens well and acts accordingly. Johannes did not hesitate to offer advice and caution whenever appropriate while at the same time always conveying a disposition to go in any direction at any time we desired. We were not looking for the best value in a realtor, we were looking for expertise and experience. We found that expertise and experience in Mr. Rath who is both personable and very professional. By coincidence we also found the best value. ZipRealty is a smart, efficient, highly effective realty operation with excellent web resources and competitively discounted to boot. We highly recommend Johannes Rath and ZipRealty. Dave and Fran Ellett Gilbert AZ
