Jane & Dr. Evan Charney: "John Szolomayer was outstanding in helping my wife and I in the recent purchase of our new home. He guided us in a supportive, efficient and professional manner that made the entire process a pleasure. John recommended very appropriate properties for us to view and provided excellent guidance when we focused in on the home we wished to purchase. He was a superb advocate for us, from preparing a purchase offer to assuring that our interests were met so that the property was in excellent condition prior to the purchase and sale. He was always one step ahead, informing us of what was needed and how best to attend to the many details involved. John made what could have been a stressful and complex process easy and comfortable. We can enthusiastically recommend John Szolomayer to anyone seeking a Realtor."

Chris Miller & Maggie Reyes: "John is absolutely exceptional. He offers a ton of experience and wisdom and at the same time is very personable and kind-hearted. John helped us find, bid and purchase our first house and we can't say enough what a gift he was during the entire process. He has a keen sense of recognizing potential flaws as well as strengths in a home and oftentimes knew more about the property than the listing agent! He is knowledgeable about the pulse of the market and was a strong advocate for us in negotiations.
What we really appreciated was his accessibility and attentiveness to our questions that made the process personalized and streamlined.
If we ever buy a house again, we will absolutely call John."

Jarrott & Michelle Heath: My wife and I hired John to manage the sale of our home in Ashland, after having interviewed three other competing agents.  The decision was difficult as all four candidates were very good.  But John had more to offer.  I believe we would have done well with any of the four candidates but I am fully confident we received the best possible results with John.  And the best results include selling for top dollar.
As an individual, we were very comfortable given his professionalism, personal demeanor, and extensive knowledge.  But John's association with Hallmark Sotheby's also gave him a huge advantage with marketing tools.  He provided magazine quality print brochures, amazing photography for our MLS listing, a video tour, and a fully custom website for our property.  While his competitors' offerings were good, they just weren't as good in our opinion.
We recently completed the sale with no issues, no surprises, and no delays.  We could not be more pleased with John and Sotheby's, and we recommend them highly.  Five stars!

Matthew & Renata Kersus: "We were thrilled with the job John did in finding us our home. He worked diligently to provide us with almost daily updates of houses that met our criteria and made sure to specifically call our attention to the ones that would be the best fit for us.
John's eye for detail and honest assessments of homes will be a valuable asset in your search. We recommend John very highly, and if we ever have to search for a new home, he will be the first person we will call."

Kamala K: When I lost my mother and father, and would one day need to sell my childhood home, I knew I had to enlist someone I could trust to assist me with this daunting task. I had zero experience buying or selling a home, and had zero experience with the enormous to-do list that was inevitably headed my way. I received John Szolomayer's information from a friend, and contacted him immediately.
From day one John was incredible, walking me through the entire process. An obstacle that never seemed to inhibit John was that I lived 2500 miles away. This meant that all communication needed to be conducted via telephone or emai; with a three hour time difference. I was so hesitant going into this, for being 2500 miles away and having little to no control was nerve wracking. However, I shortly discovered it wasn't even a concern. I awoke to an email each morning of decisions that needed to be made, and closed my day with those decisions being executed or completed. John worked tirelessly to ensure that every task, appointment, and project was finished, and to a high standard no less. His frequency of communication was perfect, and his ability to explain each next step was really impactful, since almost everything that could go wrong did; for example - septic failing, radon detected, mold found, amongst other smaller issues. John contacted numerous companies to ensure that all of the issues that came up along the way were taken care of; seeking out the best price in the process.
I had two properties that needed to be sold; one being my childhood home, and the other, the land in front of it. Both went onto the market, and offers were made within 48 hours. I credit John's wealth of experience in pricing and marketing, John provided me with reports and market analysis to look at. Together we came up with the best price to market the house at. He respected my opinions immensely, explained all the facts, the pros and cons in selecting the best price, and provided me with all the tools I would need to be set up for a successful choice. If you are looking for a realtor that you can wholeheartedly trust, who will respect your decisions, and guide you in the best direction, with the best possible outcome, definitely contact John to sell your home.

Stuart M: I talked to a number of real estate agents before asking John Szolomayer to sell my father's house in Hopkinton. I felt he was knowledgeable and professional and his marketing of the property was comprehensive and effective. As a first time home seller he answered my many questions with patience and accuracy. I would have no hesitation recommending John Szolomayer to any of my friends in need of a real estate agent.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
L. Sanford:  What a pleasant experience it has been to work with you in marketing the property. I have bought and sold five homes over the last 40 years, and the attention you gave me as the seller far surpassed every other broker I have dealt with as a seller and as a mortgage officer. Your willingness to help me sort through all the issues of trying to sell a property in a trust made the journey so much easier for me. You always kept the lines of communication open, and in the end the transaction went off without a hitch. I truly appreciated the kindness and courtesy you showed me throughout the last few months.

Janet Rice:  John Szolomayer was our agent of choice when selling my mother's home of over 50 years. We interviewed other agents but John was a person we felt we could work well with and happily we were right.
Much work was required to get the home ready for market and John was there to help us every step of the way from connecting us with painters to coordinating with cleaning crews and local contractors. The details were endless. We were handling the sale from out of state and John made the process seamless for us. John listed and sold our home in just over a month. Needless to say we very pleased.
Choosing John was the right decision for us. I would highly recommend him

M. Baer:  I hired John from Hallmark Sotheby's to sell my home during a very difficult time. Right from the beginning, I found John to be extremely knowledgeable of the real estate market and what was needed to show my house at its best for potential buyers. From staging assistance, photographs and videos for the online presentation and brochures for buyers, I found his work to be extremely professional at every step of the way. I was always confident in John's skilled interactions on my behalf with brokers, buyers and any other individuals he had to deal with to complete my sale. I would highly recommend John Szolomayer and his ability to market any real estate property.

Jim & Sarah L:  John Szolomayer has helped us with both buying and selling our homes since 2003. He found us a buyer for our condo on the very first day we allowed showings and the sale went very smoothly. He fought for us as our agent when we bought our house and made sure we had a successful bid in a very competitive seller's market. He made sure the seller's agent stuck to all the details of our agreement when she tried to back out of one of the details at the last minute during closing. When we relocated and sold that house, he again found us a buyer on the very first day we allowed showings. He recently helped us to sell our family home due to a death in the family and worked closely with our executor to make sure things went smoothly for everyone concerned. Even though it was a buyer's market this time, he still got us a good offer in our ballpark within weeks of listing the house, and we had another easy and timely closing.
John goes out of his way to make his buyers and sellers happy and comfortable throughout the buying and selling process. He pays attention to details and presents properties beautifully and accurately so that houses will get a quick sale but for a good price. He is very timely and thorough in all his communications and we recommend him highly to both buyers and sellers.

J. Snyder: It was a real pleasure working with you on selling my home in Ashland. You went above and beyond in helping me get the home ready. With me being on the Cape, you saved me a lot of time by taking care of things I would have had to come up to Ashland to take care of myself. You always kept me informed of the progress of the sale status. I will refer you to any of my friends in the Metrowest Area looking to sell their Property.
