John was extremely helpful and was very patient. He explained everything to us and helped us through the step by step process of buying our first home. He also would answer any questions we had and if something was not clear to us or we did not understand something. He would patiently explain any concerns we had. I would highly recommend John.

We had a challenging close with an uncooperative seller, so John's job was made more difficult because the seller wasn't fulfilling his obligations under the contract. John did a good job in maintaining communication with me, and making every effort to enforce our contract. We closed on time, after all, and that was our highest priority. John was responsive to my calls, and I felt that he did everything possible to meet my expectations and enforce our contract. There were some weaknesses that could be improved: we had a problematic contract and I did not get everything I asked for in the contract. John did not make it clear which refrigerator I wanted (the kitchen one) and I ended up with a piece of trash from the garage. Secondarily, we did not ask for the unattached iron gate for the courtyard to be left, so it was removed by the seller -- John should have thought to ask for that because I talked about wanting it. Overall, this was a difficult closing; John made it possible to close on time and was required to do a lot of extra time and effort to make that happen.

Amazing! We lived in Richmond Virginia and contacted John over the phone regarding a purchase of our home in Mesa AZ. He made the miles seem irrelevant and he watched over our buying experience every step of the way! He worked with our family members here in Arizona, showed them many homes, kept communication with us, and so much more! We have purchased a wonderful home in a great community...all thanks to John and his great care and service to our future here in Arizona! Thanks John!

For over a year John sent us listings to review for the area we were interested in. He was consistent in keeping in contact. When we were able to finally come into town and look, he provided us with listings of various conditions in our price range and we settled on one that day. He diligently kept in touch and returned emails and phone calls through the entire process. We are grateful he was/is our realtor. I would refer him to friends and family.

I had a difficult transaction, to no fault of me buyer or seller, but the bank being inept and incompetent. John showed tremendous skill, and ideas, to make it all work. On 3-4 occasion the deal almost fell through, and Jennifer Pope (Escrow and Title Officer from First American Title) was excellent as well. I thank them both for a job well done. Thank you Very Much!

John was great!! He helped me from the time I listed my home in Seattle. The Seattle sale took a year and all that time he sent me listings and kept in touch to see how things were progressing. When the house sold and I came to AZ to find a place, he had put time aside to show me around and had done his homework and found listings that matched my interest. I really felt that he was looking out for me during negotiations and the purchase process of the new home. He was personable and professional throoughout the whole process!

John has been GREAT!! He has sent me countless listings to review over the last year when I was trying to sell my home in Washington. When I went to AZ to find my new place, he had done his homework. The third house he showed me was the one! He's also been great keeping the transaction on track so I can close as soon as possible. Thanks, John!!

If you want a realtor that is working in your best interest and also a company that is, than John Jacobs and Zip Realty should not be your choice.I have had nothing but problems with Mr.Jacobs as well as no action what so ever from the Company that doesn't answer emails or phone calls and doesn't return calls..

For 6 months prior to our purchase John sent me different listings and answered all my questions promptly. Once we where ready to make our move he showed us the homes we where interested in plus a couple others.We found the one we liked and after submitting our offer he helped expedite the sale so that we closed in 7 days. Then he went out of his way to make sure we where in the house the same day. Many Kudo's to John!! If you are looking for a great agent that will put your needs and wants first, I highly recommend John.

The most important thing John did for us is he did not waste our time. We gave him the criteria of what we were looking for and he found houses to show us that matched that criteria. He also provided us with valuable information about how the market has changed since we bought 2 other homes over 6 months ago. This was very helpful to us in making an offer on a home. We used John 6 months ago, used him to purchase this home and would access him again in the future if there is a need. Also, I would recommend John to anyone. He has been great each time we have used his services. He is a good listener as to what we were looking for and matched us up with specifics as to what we wanted to look at in homes. I am sure we will stay in touch and use John again as our agent if we purchase another home in the future.

Not sure why You would say such a thing. You came to me wanting to purchase a condo. I set up a search of the condos available and made you aware of the properties that met your criteria as well as the market condition at this time. You also wanted to finance the pruchase and suggested talking with a lender to get the pre approval in place. Knowing the details of what you wanted to do I did what I could to grease the wheels so you could meet your goals. If I misunderstood what you wanted to do or your plans changed by all means let me know so that I can get you the service and information you are wanting. My only goal with all my clients is to make their purchase experience as stress free and smooth as possible.

He also found the house I purchased when he researched another listing I was interested in. I would highly recommend him and would use his services again. The fact that there is an added bonus that will be returned to me made the experience completely satisfying and rewarding.
