As a closing law firm and title company here in Massachusetts, we have had the pleasure of working with John Wells of Wellsco on many deals, with many clients and over many years. The most recent property we handled involved an investment single-family property for investor-clients of John’s (a young couple). John’s clients planned to renovate and rehab this home to live in for now and hopefully resell. John’s professional and compassionate involvement was critical to the success of this particular deal and his expert handling allowed this young couple to avoid the many potential pitfalls sometimes associated with home buying (let alone investment home buying with the added challenges of renovation). John’s work is a rare combination of expertise, market knowledge and empathy. It is with pleasure that we offer our very highest marks in this review.
I started my search, on line, on a Sunday night. Left a message as it was his property. He called me back within 5 minutes (Very impressive as it was about 9:00pm). Always answers his phone. Knows the town well and knows the process. Carried binoculars in his car so we could look at chimney conditions. Would get into crawl spaces to see how insulation was, conditions of vents, etc. Great Realtor!
John did a lot more than sell us a house! John did a gret job looking out for our best interest every step of the way. John even referred us to incredible professionals to handle all that goes into buying a house (home inspector, mortgage broker, real estate attorney). We were so impressed with John and his network that we will never look to anyone else should we choose to buy another property. We highly recommend Jonh Wells!
Professional & Articulate
We recently moved to Newburyport from New York and John was amazing. We had inquired about a house and he, personally, responded within five minutes (might have been less) to introduce himself and inquire of our needs, expectations and timeline. John was very professional, articulate and knows Newburyport intimately. He was very responsive with any questions that we had during our purchase. We would highly recommend John for anyone looking to purchase a home in the Newburyport area. Thank you John.
During our first house hunt my fiance and I had many questions and concerns entering the housing market for the first time. We were looking for a house with a nice layout that was a little distressed that we could fix up and make our own. The first house we met John after 5 minutes of touring the property he told us to run the other way pointing out many serious flaws that we may have overlooked. He continued to show us properties over the upcoming months always giving his honest opinion of the properties value, Condition etc. John always seems to have his clients best interest in ind instead of merely trying to “sell” them a house. When finally found the house we wanted he helped us negotiate and ultimately own a great property with good upside potential. We met alot of realtors in our search but every one of them seemed to lack different skills that John excelled at. Overall great experience, would recommend to anyone looking to purchase property. Thanks again John!
John was amazing
John was amazing. It took us a while to find the perfect home, and throughout the process, John never flinched. We finally found what we were looking for and we give a lot of credit to John. He was always available for phone calls, texts and emails. Always available to view properties with us even though we all knew they weren’t suitable for our needs. Hey, it’s a process. The thing I liked most about John is his knowledge of the guts of a property: Heating, AC, electrical, roofing, etc.. If he saw a red flag, he’d warn us and we’d move on to the next property. He quickly learned what we were looking for. We closed on our dream home yesterday and a lot of credit for that goes to John Wells. Thanks man. If you want a straight up realtor who want’s you to be thrilled with your new home, I’d go with John. No question.
Professional and Knowledgable
Very professional and knowledgable about every facet of the deal, no matter how weird. Also went out of his way to make the extra effort to help get my property sold.
Normally I wouldn’t give a perfect review, but John truly does deserve that and more. I spent a long time home searching, making sure not to get ahead of myself and buy something that I wasn’t completely in love with. John was incredibly patient with me and helped lead me in the right direction, every step of the way. He always made himself available whenever I needed something and that alone says a lot about his character, as well as his dedication and passion for what he does. John is a library of knowledge in all aspects of the home search/buying process ,and if he doesn’t have the answer, he knows just where to find it. I highly recommend his services to anyone looking to travel down this road…!
John is an amazing Realtor. He helped us purchase our first condo in Amesbury. We trusted his opinion and believe he is 100% interested in helping his clients make the most informed and best decisions. I would recommend him to anyone!
Friendly & Caring
Friendly, caring, business knowledge exceptional and responsive to our differences of opinion…willing to go the extra mile to bring a positive sale experience. John has a great sense of humor.
We are new to North Shore, and it’s very diverse/complex from a real estate perspective. John advised us on a number of parameters including location, home size, quality construction, builder reputation and more. John was very persistent through the inspection process and represented us well. Lastly, he has connected us with local businesses to help us get settled.
Wealth of Knowledge and Experience
John brought a wealth of knowledge and experience to our home buying process and was great to work with as first time home buyers. He was very patient, explained every part of the process for us, and was always available and able to arrange his schedule to meet our needs. John has experience in the contracting and construction business. so he brought a real knowledge of and eye for structural integrity, electrical and plumbing systems and was very tuned into each component of every house we looked at. When we first started working with John, he took us out for a drink in Newburyport and got to know us and what we were looking for in a home and from that moment on, he made recommendations for us based on our preferences. We never felt like he was trying to talk us into something we didn’t want. We decided mid-way through our working with John to start looking in the Boston suburbs, which was not necessarily convenient for John, but amazingly he continued to work hard for us, did multiple visits with us to the house we ended up purchasing, and was very thorough and tough during the negotiation and purchasing process. His knowledge of the process was EXCELLENT! We couldn’t be happier about our experience with John; very respectful, always available and prompt in getting back to us, and we feel like we got the best deal we could have gotten under his guidance.
Local Knowledge and Experience
John was excellent to work with. He knows many business people in the area and has great local knowledge. His local knowledge and experience helped me create realistic offers on town homes with specific clauses tp protect me in many ways. The offer and contingencies were well written by John and help, protect my financial interests. Great personality and pleasant to work with. John Returned calls and emails even late into the evening. I recommend that any one looking for real estate in this market should contact John Wells.
Look No Further
Seriously look no further. As my wife and I were novice home buyers, he provided a SEAMLESS transition towards buying our first home. From the timely responses from all parties by phone, email, and text, we were able to see homes based on his advice. John offered realistic suggestions and critiques regarding the price range, region, school systems and even the homes themselves such as whether it needed work or not. He is very educated and the team he works with doesn’t miss a beat. I will recommend him to every new home buyer and will definitely work with him for future home purchases.
