John is a must have agent and director. I have experienced 2 relocations and he has demonstrated exceptional versatility. He knows how to balance his experience and knowledge while making the home buying process FUN. I can't thank him enough for his professionalism, reliability, relatability and leadership. When I relocated initially from CA to NJ John surprised us with our dream home. The home finding process expects that one will search exhaustively, however John made a life changing step simple and seamless. My kids, my golden and our family absolutely love our house and John.
John & Team were fantastic! We had multiple unforeseen hiccups along the selling process but John kept me well informed the entire time. The house sold close to listing price and in the off season too.
At our first meeting with John Wuertz, he had detailed information to help us decide what price to list our house. The pictures of our house shown online were done really well. He answered all of our many questions and kept in touch through phone calls, emails, and text messages. He showed us how to use the Showing Time app which is a great tool. He also had a secure portal for us to use and docusign which saved a lot of time. We both feel he did an excellent job for us.
Since I was a child, I've believed that education is important. In my opinion, obtaining a real estate license should be much more difficult than taking just a 75 hour course. After all, we're dealing with the financial well-being of our clients. For most people, their real estate transactions are the largest financial maneuvers they'll ever make. I believe it's up to the agent to be well informed so that he or she can advise the client properly. Not only do I take classes regularly to increase my knowledge, but also require every member of my team to do the same. I am also a real estate trainer and have taught in both New Jersey and New York.
Having always been interested in houses, construction, and real estate in general, my neighbor one day suggested that I get my license. She and her husband had been moved by his company 18 times in their nearly 30 years of marriage. She said that I'd probably be better than the vast majority of agents they'd encountered in their many moves because of my personality, attention to detail, and most of all my honesty. So already in my 30's, I decided to leave my previous industry and take the plunge. I quickly became a top agent in the company I joined and have loved my job every since.
Coincidentally, I listed and sold my neighbor's house for the top price in the community since it was built, shortly thereafter.
I have a resume of wonderful past clients. I've listed and sold properties in every price range, from investment properties and land from $10,000 to luxury homes and estates into the millions. My list of past clients and transactions includes media personalities, local celebrities, an Olympic gold medalist, politicians, and international clients from the United Nations.
I would advise anyone getting ready to hire a real estate professional not to accept the fact that the agent is simply licensed. Do your homework and ask a lot of questions. If you're getting ready to sell, ask about marketing. Does the agent market the property or market the agent? My entire marketing budget is dedicated to marketing my listings, not myself. Buyers want to see the properties, not the agent. Personal promotion doesn't work to sell your home. Property promotion is what you need to effectively compete against other listings.
If you're buying a property, inquire about local market knowledge. But does the agent also take into consideration the national economic conditions and forecast? Real estate is an investment vehicle, similar to a CD or stock or your IRA or 401K. Typically secure, but there are times when a pause should be considered. How many people bought real estate a few months before the crash of 2008/9? I'm proud to say that I talked more buyers out of purchasing as we neared the explosion of the bubble and instead, suggested renting or staying put for a while. My friends in the banking world had not been saying for years that the end was coming tomorrow. But they did tell me when it was near and I passed that information on to my clients. Not one of my clients who bought prior to the burst struggled financiallly because of a home purchase.
