First time being executor and selling a house. John was professional, knew exactly what needed to be done. My sister just passed so we were overwhelmed. He helped tremendously. He said things will get better, there is a light at the end of the tunnel and he was right. He made me feel I could do this. And I did . THANK you John . He worked hard for us.
John was vital in buying and selling our place. His knowledge, experience and overall commitment is unsurpassed. We immediately liked his approach being open and honest with us from the start, truly put us at ease. We will highly recommend him and are thankful for our experience throughout both processes.
In my experience, John is a great real estate agent. He excelled in professionalism, sensitivity to our needs and concerns and gave great, realistic advice during the sale of our home. I feel fortunate to have found and worked with him and would highly recommend him to friends, family and my own business clients! Thank you John, selling with you was a dream and we are grateful!
Our experience as first time home buyers with John Owen was extremely pleasurable. From the first time we met, he was always personable, kind, professional and very knowledgeable. He was always accessible and responded quickly to any of our questions and requests. We owe our successful purchase of our first home to John. No doubt if we had another broker we would not have been successful. John fought for us and used his years of experience and expertise to help us be the winning bid in this crazy real estate market. We are so happy with John's services. Thank you John so much for all you did! Grace and Jay!

I have used John Owen's realtor services on two separate occasions. Most recently my house which sold yesterday.
I found him to be very professional and knowledgeable He was up front about everything and always available if I needed to talk about any part of the selling process.
I would definitely work with him again and recommend him to anyone looking for an experienced realtor with integrity.
Our six-month search for our 'forever' country home came to a successful finish in early February! John arranged many showings over those months, was always responsive when we contacted him and arranged showings promptly and as our time permitted. Then one day everything happened in lightning speed - we found a home online that ticked all the boxes! We contacted John just before 4pm, he arranged a viewing at 5pm, we returned to put an offer together by 7pm... and the offer was accepted by 8:30 pm! Amazing! We are thrilled that everything went smoothly! It was John's professionalism and calmness that got us through to the successful finish line. Thank you John for your patience in guiding us through the paperwork and process.
My husband and I decided that the time had come for us to sell our home of 50 years and downsize, we were not sure what we wanted so we first looked at land lease homes. There were a couple that we were interested in and with the help of John we made a bid. We are both in our 80's and completely computer illiterate so John spent a lot of time guiding us through all the paperwork, which was all virtual due to this wonderful virus. We didn't get either of the homes.
We then decided to look in Bowmanville, so John found several houses for us to look at, he guided us each of the houses and pointed out any areas of potential problems, which we might have missed. None of them interested us as there was still grass to cut and snow to shovel. John then suggested looking at condos, we reluctantly agreed. We drove to Newcastle to look, the building was relatively new and had a lovely lobby, I was becoming more receptive to the idea of a condo. When John opened the door to the condo, both my husband and I knew at that moment that this would be our new home.
I want to thank John for his guidance and patience in helping us find our Forever Home. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a new home.

I count myself very fortunate to have chosen John Owen to list my country property! It was an emotional turmoil for me, but from the beginning, I felt I could rely on John. He is a professional, dedicated and dependable realtor and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to my friends or family. The fact that he was readily available via phone, text and/or email was a big positive in my mind. All I had to do was ask my questions! John, my sincere thanks for all the work you put in for me over the past few months. Your attention to detail and marketing strategies most certainly helped ensure that the whole process of selling was an easy and lucrative one. It was a pleasure working together.
John is very professional, courteous, and resourceful. After discussions he understood the type of home that suited us. John was well prepared, and after viewing homes for a short period, we found a home we are very happy with.
John is very helpful. As a first-time home buyer, he walked us through the process and clarified some of the steps for us that we weren't too familiar with. He was very responsive and always came on time to show us the properties we were interested in. We weren't familiar with some aspects of the areas or the building of homes we considered and he was very helpful in explaining them to us. I'd strongly recommend him and will use him in the future when I need help with buying/selling.
Wanted to say thank you for your help with finding & the purchase of our new home in Trenton Ontario.
The hard part began with the sale of our home in Brooklin, Ontario, because that was when the Covid-19 Virus started, the real estate market was closed as a non-essential business, not able to conduct open houses which made it a little more difficult to market homes for sale, the only way was photos & virtual tours and appointments when needed. But you handled the situation with professionalism & a very caring positive attitude, there were many stressful moments that you helped us through, always there to answer our calls.
You did an excellent job on photos & virtual tours and we were able to sell our home.
We would definitely recommend you as an agent to any clients looking to sell or buy.

I just wanted to take a few minutes to thank you again for helping us find and purchase our new home. You made it your goal to help us find what we were looking for. You always went out of your way to make sure we had all the information, setting up appointments on short notice and just providing the friendly service that is often hard to find these days. You were extremely patient, always smiling and willing to help in any way possible even calling us on the day of our move to see how things were. Anytime we talk to anyone in need of buying or selling a house, we are DEFINITELY recommending you to them.

John was an absolute joy to work with. He was always fast to respond with answers to our questions and was never too busy to set up appointments to look at homes on our crazy schedule. We were fortunate to get our home within our budget, even when there were bidding wars on so many of the homes we looked at. No regrets at all!
Thank you John, for your patience in dealing with me, and your skill in finding my new home. You worked very hard to make things clear and negotiated terms that made it much less stressful in getting to a deal, even when it looked like the seller was being very difficult.
