John McPherson made us feel like we were his only clients. He was very knowledgeable and he worked very hard, even when we were not riding around with him looking at houses, to find us the perfect home that we were looking for. I highly recommend him to anyone searching for a new home!

John is very helpful and knowledgeable. If anything outside of the normal buying process was needed, John instantly had someone trustworthy and reliable to get the job done. He keeps in touch frequently and will always answer and respond to calls or text messages. I will never use anyone other than John and will always refer him to my family and friends. Thanks John for making my home buying experience one that I'll never forget!!

John was in high gear right from the start.He started with a tour of the area and progressed with more of what we were interested in. His questions and interest in our needs fed him what he needed to find us the perfect home. Even after the sale he has been available to answer questions and put us in touch with any services we need. He has done an AWESOME job.

John is very personable and fun to work with. He was very patient with us as it took over a year for us to finally get serious about finding our home. He also coached us through the negotiating phase to get realistic and fair outcomes. We would recommend him to anyone that is looking for a home in Forsyth county!!

John was very helpful to me in the purchase of my first home. I found him to be extremely honest and flexible. In fact, I've never met an agent quite as down to earth and as friendly as John McPherson. I didn't know anything about purchasing a home, I wasn't familiar with such things as home values, etc. but John didn't allow me to pay too much for my purchase he didnt allow the seller to take advantage of my ignorance. I pray that he never retires! I would use him over and over again and would reccomend him to anyone who wants a memorable, seamless home buying experience.

John is great! He is very knowledgeable about homes in the Winston-Salem area and surrounding areas. He is also very professional, prompt, and I felt I could always reach out to him when I needed to ask a question. He made my first time home buying experience a fantastic one. Thanks again.

John made the process of buying a home fun and stress free. I am a first time home buyer and John was able to answer all of my questions and help me select a wonderful new home. He also provided a lot of great advice for items such as pest inspection, loan provider, home inspection, lock smith, and other general home necessities. I plan on recommending John to any one I hear that needs a home in the Winston Salem area. Thanks again John for making the purchase of my first home an awesome experince!!

He is very dedicated real estate agent and he is very knowledge on selling and buying properties. He sold my house and help me to buy my dream house. He is the best agent I ever work with.

From listing to closing in less than 60 days!!! He is the BEST and really goes the extra mile for his clients. He really makes the home-buying/selling process as stress-free as possible. This was my 4th real estate transaction with John, and I just can't say enough positive things about the guy. If you need a Realtor, I HIGHLY recommend him!

It was a wonderful experience working with John during the process of selling my condo. He is professional, highly relational, knowledgeable about the real estate arena and market, and hard-working. He treated me with respect, returned my inquiries quickly and encouraged discussion if I did not understand an aspect of the process. I highly recommend him to others that are either interested in buying or selling a property in the Winston-Salem area.

I was selling a piece of rental property that needed to be sold very quickly. John got it done and provided a lot of helpful advice even though we were dealing with a difficult property. Would definitely recommend!

John is a pleasure to work with. His willingness to go the extra mile to work with us on our first purchase was amazing. I recommend anyone to work with him he is a joy to be around.
09/12/2013 - user90318458
John spent quality time with us when we sold our property and when we bought our new property. He is realistic, dedicated, and not pushy. We felt completely comfortable with all our decisions. He truly works for his clients and is very invested in the client's interest. Highly recommend him!
09/12/2013 - user75905542
Savvy, funny, attentive, John brings it all together in a single agent. But where he really separates himself is dealing with the issues that come up and believe me that is huge.
Very effective agent.

HIs service was great. He always responded to any requests or questions I had quickly and courteously. He makes the home buying experience extremely easy. He has many contacts in the Winston Salem area which makes finding solid service providers a breeze. He treats his clients with the respect they deserve.

John McPherson is the best real estate agent in the market. He went above and beyond the expectations of an agent.
He was available day and night anytime I had questions, or found a house at 10:00 at night and wanted to schedule a showing. My wife and I viewed 20 houses with John before we found the one we loved and he remained patient and willing to help throughout the entire process.
He provided honest advice and he always looked out for our best interest. He knows the market really well and guided us accordingly.
Give John a call if you want an agent that will be patient, knowledgeable, and experienced.

I have purchased four houses and sold three. John has been by far the most attentive and most thorough agent I have dealt with in three states, His professionalism, attention to detail, and local connections made my last real estate transaction painless.

I loved working with John and would highly recommend him. He has previously sold two of my houses, and I have bought a perfect house for our family with his services. He went above and beyond our expectations each time, and we had a great time working with him. The first house that he sold had been on sale for months with another agency until my contract with them expired. I met John at an open house and was really impressed with him, so I listed my house that had been on and then off the market with him, and it quickly sold. I told John that I wanted my second house sold in less than a week because I had a newborn, and he delivered. My house sold in less than a week. He helped us stage and present the house well which is the reason I believe that it sold so quickly. We are now in our third and final house and I love it. I wanted a house with a lot of privacy, a large master bathroom and huge great room and that's exactly what we got. He was great negotiating the details and making sure that our house was sound. I love the location of our house and it is the perfect house for us. Anytime that I have wanted to have work done on our house or yard after we moved in, we have called him and he always has great recommendations. He is not the type of realtor that gets a commission and you never hear from again. We have kept in touch and he has helped us over and over throughout the years. I would AND have highly recommended him to all of my friends and family. He also found houses for my grandparents, parents and sister and her family when we recommended him. They all loved working with him as well.

John was incredibly professional, knowledgeable, fun, efficient, and patient throughout the process of purchasing our first home in the Winston Salem/Lewisville area. John was diligent in helping my husband and I find the right neighborhood and house to meet our needs. John was very knowledgeable of the home buying process as well as key factors to home ownership; radon, roof replacement, HVAC, water heater, the list goes on and on. If you have a house question, John knows the answer! John also provided us with helpful and experienced resources involved in the closing process (inspector, contractor, closing attorney, etc.). John was always readily available and easily accessible, even during non-business hours. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND working with John if you are buying or selling in the Winston-Salem area! John thank you so much for helping us find our dream home!

I have worked with John for the sale of my home and purchase of a new one. John is the most accessible realtor I have ever worked with. He responded immediately to any questions or concerns. He advised me on things such as staging the house to entice buyers. The house was sold within a week of listing due to John's expertise. John also saw us through the process of purchasing a new home and coordinating the sale of one house and purchase of another all on the same day. Let me stress that the contact with John does not end with the sale. John knows a lot of folks and has provided recommendations on such things as hiring painters to a good landscaper. It is obvious that John views all his clients as friends even after the sale is completed. He responds to all questions and requests for assistance as if I was still an active client trying to buy or sell a home. If you are thinking of buying or selling I highly recommend the services John provides. I really feel like I have gained a friend rather than a realtor whose association typically ends after the sale is complete.

John is an absolutely fantastic real estate agent. My wife and I bought our first house last year through John. He walked us through every step of the way. I was so impressed with his efficiency, knowledge, and understanding of not only the market, but our wants and needs. We ended up buying a fantastic house at an INCREDIBLE price. I was blown away by the deal he negotiated: lower price than tax value, seller paid closing fees, and seller (who was a builder) threw in the refrigerator and a Lowe's gift card. I would recommend anyone to work with John!

As a homebuilder, I have been in regular contact with buying and selling agents professionally for many years. John and MKT group do a great job representing buyers and sellers. They are honest, responsive, and creative. They hustle on their transactions and seek win-win solutions for the inevitable hiccups of a real estate transaction. Their knowledge of real estate marketing and their willingness to get in the trenches to create a marketing plan and execute the plan make them a delight to work with as a listing agent. I highly recommend working with John.

John was a very personable realtor. He helped my fiance and I find and purchase our new home in Winston-Salem. I would recommend him to anyone. Since our purchase we have become friends and he has helped me in recent realty decisions I have had to make.

John is a superb realtor. Not only did he show us houses over the span of a year, he never lost contact with us or got frustrated. He even helped us find a rental for the time we were looking for a house to purchase. When we finally made an offer and it fell through, John was there to give us our options. A month later, when when our dream house came on the market on a Friday, John was there to take us to the house Saturday, and by Sunday we had a deal. John handled everything smoothly and professionally. John is personable, knowledgeable, and savvy; but the thing I most appreciate about working with John is his integrity. I noticed that he never talked bad about other agents, consistently taking the high road even in difficult situations. Of the 20+ houses we looked at, John allowed each house to keep the dignity and respect as someone's personal home. The other people John works with and recommends all carry that same level of integrity- be they his office staff, or the people he recommends (should you need it) as mortgage brokers, contractors, insurance agents, inspectors, plumbers, etc.- John hand-selects the people he does business with for professionalism and trustworthiness. We had a great experience with John and will continue to keep in touch with him. He's our realtor for life!
