First Time Home Buyer

Please allow me to formally recognize and recommend Mr. John Tompkins as a qualified Realtor of Howard Hanna Real Estate Services. John was my Realtor for the home I recently purchased, and he made the entire experience one of complete satisfaction. From the moment we first met, he established his knowledge of realty and created a comfortable and inviting atmosphere. He fostered a relationship with my family and me that was trustworthy, caring, respectful, genuinely kind, and one that considered and focused on both the general aspects of the buying process as well as my unique needs. Being a first-time buyer, John was patient with me, explained all facets of the procedures fully, and made himself available at all times. John was punctual and well-prepared for each meeting, while able to swiftly and adeptly manage any challenges or unexpected issues that arose. And throughout, he coordinated the various transactions with the other parties involved in a seamless and efficient manner. It is readily apparent that John is skilled in the technical and procedural aspects of the buying experience, as evidenced by his knowledge base and past results. However, it is his human-centered approach and philosophy that was most important to me. John masterfully balanced providing suggestions and direction based within his experience and with data-driven information, all while having made me feel comfortable, at ease, confident, and reassured that any final decision was always mine to make. In summary, it was an absolute pleasure having worked with Mr. John Tompkins. He is a man of integrity and a consummate professional. It is true that he keeps the interests of the client first and foremost, and in the end gets the job done. With gratitude
