John did a great job in helping me secure a new home. He knew my focus area well and was prompt with setting up showings. Very friendly and easy to work with and I felt like he took finding my new home with heart. Very going at explaining each step process and what to expect.zuser20170515171652049

Just call him--he took over, and we received highest price in our SubdivisionJohn Fader
John was very professional handling everything from listing, showing, completing paperwork to the actual closing. He was always a phone call away and answered all of our questions no matter how many times we asked them. Our 1st showing date was March 18, 2016 and within 3 days we had 16 showings and 2 acceptable offers, again, thanks to John !mdatravel
Sold three houses and one vacant lot through John. He did a great job negotiating with a investor on one of the properties in particular. They were trying to steal the condo but he helped them see the light!jkmcstrauss
Happy Home Owners! "We are writing to express our pleasure with real estate agent John Garmo, who represented us in our purchase of a single-family home. He guided us through the entire process, from loan prequalification to searching for houses to making the offer and closing the deal. We credit him with a smooth, stress-free home-buying experience. This is our first purchase of property and we had such a pleasurable experience. He is patient, personable and knows the market inside and out. We never could have gotten our dream home without him. To reiterate, we are nothing but pleased with him and his expertise and we recommend him to everyone." Farmington HillsDana & Ansam
After listing our house with another realtor & having it on the market for the entire summer, we hired John and he sold our house in 9 days. He handled the sale with a high level of professionalism. John?s state of the art technology made things easier for us during the showings and he really went out of his way to keep the sale process moving and as stress-free as possible. John understood our real estate market down to each neighborhood and area and the market price better than the professional appraiser too. It was really fantastic to be able to sell our home in 9 days before the winter holiday season. John was amazing in his patience and relentless help with every step of the way of the sale and the closing process. We highly recommend John because of his deep knowledge and expertise in selling and buying a house, a home, and/or any type of real estate.DWPet

I just wanted to personally thank you and I truly appreciate the work you did with selling my house. Thanks John!Justin,

We Love Our New Home! "My husband and I just recently bought a house from Mr. Garmo. Working with John was a wonderful experience. As we all know looking for a new home is very stressful and moving into your home is even more stressful. However, John was very dedicated and determined to help us find exactly want we wanted. My husband and I are very happy and satisfied with our home. I cannot express how helpful John was helping us get our first home. There were many things my husband and I also didn't know. John made sure to educate us. We are truly grateful for all his dedication, his hard work, and always being so responsive right away. We are so pleased with our new home we wish for everyone to be as lucky as us. Thank you, John." NoviAmmar and Olivia
If you want a trustworthy agent "As a first time home-owner it was extremely important for me to find an agent that would focus on what I could afford while still meeting my housing expectations. From the very beginning John gained my trust by being informative and provide with all the steps I needed to take care of before delving into full on research for my future home! He always asked the right questions, gave the right advice, LISTENED to what I wanted, and made my first purchase fast and seamless. John Garmo is a professional that loves his job, he is detailed oriented and focuses on providing you with a terrific buying experience from start to finish... If I will decide to sell my home or buy another property there is no doubt he will be the one I call! Sincerely LivoniaLiliya B.

Exemplary Service! "Based on my recent experience with John Garmo, I would have to say it was great! It was wonderful to work with him during the time my condo was on the market through the short sale process. John was really very cooperative and caring and possessed great communication skills. John always had suggestions and ideas to help me get through the process. He always kept me informed about what was going on and how the negotiations were going during the sale process. The communication lines were always open which I think is why everything went so smoothly during the sale. John was a Savior for me. I was relieved that I was able to sell the condo and avoid foreclosure. I would highly recommend John to any potential buyer or seller. " WaterfordEdwin
Dear John, "Thank you so much for helping us find the perfect condo for us! We truly wouldn't know what to do without your professional help and advice on picking the right family home, we couldn't ask for a better real estate agent! We couldn't be happier and we will definitely refer you and the company to everyone we know searching for a house! Thanks again, May" SouthfieldMay,

Found a tenant for a Single Family home in West Bloomfield, MI. John Garmo did a fantastic job for us to find a tenant for our rental home. He struck just the right level of advice and guidance balanced with strong work ethic and follow up. Some of the best guidance was around how to change the lease costly things about the home with the biggest impact before selling. He was also masterly in the offer negotiation process to help us get the asked price. It was a great experience working with him and I highly recommend him.Louie A.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $250K in Farmington Hills, MI. John is a great agent to work with. He was responsive and worked hard to help us thru the whole selling process, I would recommend him to anyone who need a real agent.Quan
Helped me sell a home John is responsible to questions and usually give us the answer in a short period of time. He gave recommendations but he also take our opinions into consideration such as listing price, count offer, etc. His recommended price may be a little bit low, but we are trying to sell it in 2 months before Sept as well. So, anyway, we have a number of shows right after the house listed on the market and we got two offers at same time, and the rest just moved smoothly. We closed at the date as we planned. Highly recommended.
