    John Jacob's did a great job helping us through the process of selling our home. He is very thorough knowledgable about the whole process beginning to end. We felt we were in good hands through the the ups and downs. We may go down as one of his toughest yet but we really appreciate his help and could not have done it without him.

    John did everything he could to make the selling and buying of my new home as easy as possible. He went out at this way as an agent to get me into my new home and went way beyond my expectations. I would recommend him to any of my family members.

    Mr John Jacobs was by far the Best and most knowledgeable Real Estate Professional that my wife and I had the pleasure of working with. We have purchased and sold numerous homes over the years, but we believe without Mr Jacobs negotiating skills and experience we would not have been able to obtain our new home. Sincerely, Juergen (Jack) and Marsha Michel

    My husband and I where both pleased with the business relationship that we received from John we had a very unique situation that could only be resolved with time and patience. I met John online more than year and half ago I explained to him my situation I like the fact that John wasn't pushy he checked in with me and I keep him updated. When the time finally came for us to meet in person John was pleasant and easy to talk to he listen to my desires that I was looking for in our new home and worked very diligently to find a home that would make me happy. After finding the house John guided me through the process, and everything went just as he said it would! We closed in less than 30 days! My mom had the opportunity to meet John and she liked him too 😊 Thank you John for putting a smile on our face and keeping the stress level down.

    John was an awesome real estate agent. He worked around our schedules and was very knowledgeable about the houses he took us around to see. It was slow going at first because it seemed that every house we told him to put oan offer on we were a little too late. But he continued to search for the perfect house for us in the budget we we're willing to pay for. I would definitely tell anyone that was looking for a house to buy that he's the guy to go to.

    I highly recommend John if you are looking for a realtor. He kept us informed of new listing, in the area that we wanted. When we decided on a home, we had returned to Indiana, so everything was completed on-line. He was knowledgeable of our concerns and questions. Always returned our calls promptly. We will defiantly recommend John to anyone looking for a realtor in the future.

    We were relocating from Illinois to Arizona, and John kept in constant contact with us from the time of our decision to relocate to the time we arrived to AZ to look for our last dream home , without hounding or being annoying like some of the other realtors that contacted us. He was attentive to all our needs and we would recommend him to anyone!!!!

    John provided excellent customer service and is very knowlegdable. I would recommend following his advice for a hassle free real estate transaction. John was quick to respond to any and all questions with honest answers and time tips. We felt John gave us very personal service and really cared about how we felt about the progress of the sale. It's our new home in Arizona City and is just what what we were looking for. When it came time for our personal home inspection, we were on time and John was there ahead of us (promptness gets huge points with me). If we buy in the area again, we will be talking to John first and would highly recommend John to anyone we know interested in buying in the area.

    This is the second time we have purchased a home through John Jacobs. I highly recommend him to anyone in the Phoenix metro area. We purchased our retirement home from him in 2010. When it came time in 2018 to purchase a home for my sister who is retiring, I called John. He helped us to purchase just the right home and the deal went through so smoothly. He cares about his customers. He looks to see they are getting an excellent deal. He negotiates for you and lets you know the facts about the market. When I have my next opportunity to purchase real estate, you can bet I will be calling John Jacobs.

    Alice gave John 1 stars out of 5
    This is the third home we have purchased and we have always used a realtor that we knew. Jon was nice but very CHEAP. I could have dumped him as our realtor midstream. The new home we purchased was not a lead from him, nor did i look at the home with him on our first visit. I asked Jon a number of times if he gives anything back to his buyers, ie ceiling fans, gift cards, thank you lunch. On the day we did the inspection, the inspector said something like, lunch is always on the realtor and Jon replied, sorry today is my fast day. The first time we met with Jon he was not prepared, the first person had no idea we were coming, the 2nd house we could not get access to the house. He only took us out looking at homes three times and made almost 6k off of the purchase. Even a thank you note would have been nice for using him as our realtor. Nothing but a hand shake the day the funding went through. I was very disappointed but as i stated we had always used realtors that we personally knew. He did nothing to help us negotiate the price of the home and he didn't even have to draw up a contract being a new build. I would never recommend him as an agent and obviously we didn't leave much of an impact on him as we ran into him at the store and he didn't even remember our name. It was a disappointing experience. I wasn't even going to bother with this as it literally made me ill and unable to sleep but I will be writing my personal review with the BBB as well. I should have went with my gut after meeting with him the 2nd time. There were many things that should have been taped on our walk through and then on our final walk through, he could have been more helpful with inspecting the things we had pointed out. It was a big rush at that point. I really hope we never see him again.

    John worked hard to find a home that fit my needs in my price range. He is very honest and I feel he looked out for me and was not just concerned with making a sale. If I decide to buy another home in the future I will use John as my agent. I will also recommend John to friends looking to buy or sell.

    I would like to thank JOHN JACOBS agent who sold my home, 1202 E Delano Dr, Casa Grande AZ 85122, he went to the moon and back for me. I am military(NAVY) and John went above and beyond his call of duty. He started of house hunting to close of escrow and after the sale. There was an incident at the home where the listing agent overlooked an email from the owner and I ended up with a flooded home. John and his lovely wife rushed over with loads of towels and had a chain effect going on with the ringing of the towels to help take the water out. I am so blessed to have had him as my agent as he was there for me when I was unable to be at the home due to my duty station being across the states, Kings Bay GA. His expertise, knowledge and communications skills with me was to the highest level of customer service. I just wanted you to know how much I appreciated him as an agent and wanted him to be recognized for it. I wished I had $$ to give him but I am afraid this home has taken most of it. Once again, I wanted to see if you can give him a Shout out for me thanking him for his customer service and attention to all my needs.

    James gave John 5 stars out of 5
    I was selling my home in Colorado, and started looking for homes in Maricopa. I ran across John in a search for Arizona homes. I contacted John in July of 2015, and after our discussion of what I was looking for, and the price range I was shooting for he got the ball rolling. I was sent e-mails almost daily on new listing. They had great pictures attached. We found our home on 44215 W Granite Dr on line. Fell in Love with it, and with out even looking at the home John did what he does best as a Realtor. He guided us on what we should submit on the bid to be in the running of the Sellers expectations. This home had everything we wanted, and the sellers were wanting to sale all furniture and household items. Remember! we still had not even looked or checked out the home. Our decisions were guided by John's recommendations with phone calls. He always had our best interest in mind with many, many, many! questions about the items. He convinced us we were better off in using Caliber Home for our loan than Wells Fargo. Explained in detail his reasons why, and we can say today when all said and done Caliber is number one in my book. We had MAJOR problems with the sale of the home in Colorado, and with John handling this end just made us feel like he was just our Realtor, but a trusted friend who was always on our side, and not just looking for another sale. We fell in Love with the home and he new it. He did everything in his powers to make sure he kept the salers advised of the delay's in Colorado, and there will never be enough Thank You's for that. I could sit here and babble on and on about how we got this home, I can't explain with chosen words how John guided a 59 year old last home buyer, and a 19 year old first home buyer through the difficulties and delay's with the sale of the home in Colorado. Kept telling him we don't want to loose it. He took the reins and went above and beyond what a Realtor word or should have to do. Thank You! John Jacobs for making our dream come true,

    John was helpful during the listing period and kept us informed about prices. Unfortunately his initial list price evaluation turned out to be quite removed from our ultimate sale price. He did however inform us that the market had declined quite dramatically. We would have liked some contact at closing, but it did close successfully. Overall a good Realtor.

    John was great from the start of the process all the way through the final steps. Being a first time homebuyer, I had a load of questions and concerns but John made the process quick and painless. He was always honest whenever I needed his opinion and he never kept me waiting on an answer. It was a great experience and I will be sure to make John my first call if I look to buy or sell in the future.

    He was not up to par on his communication between title company and buyer. In the end we ended up communicating with the title company alone and felt that he was a third party player and not up to speed. We arranged the closing ourselves and he was unaware of what was going on. We felt we were inconveniencing him. He lacks attention to detail and poor follow up on any questions we had. This is not the first home we have ever bought but it is the worst realtor we have ever dealt with.

    Melody gave John 4 stars out of 5
    We had a challenging close with an uncooperative seller, so John's job was made more difficult because the seller wasn't fulfilling his obligations under the contract. John did a good job in maintaining communication with me, and making every effort to enforce our contract. We closed on time, after all, and that was our highest priority. John was responsive to my calls, and I felt that he did everything possible to meet my expectations and enforce our contract. There were some weaknesses that could be improved: we had a problematic contract and I did not get everything I asked for in the contract. John did not make it clear which refrigerator I wanted (the kitchen one) and I ended up with a piece of trash from the garage. Secondarily, we did not ask for the unattached iron gate for the courtyard to be left, so it was removed by the seller -- John should have thought to ask for that because I talked about wanting it. Overall, this was a difficult closing; John made it possible to close on time and was required to do a lot of extra time and effort to make that happen.

When we were able to finally come into town and look, he provided us with listings of various conditions in our price range and we settled on one that day. He diligently kept in touch and returned emails and phone calls through the entire process. We are grateful he was/is our realtor. I would refer him to friends and family.

    John was great!! He helped me from the time I listed my home in Seattle. The Seattle sale took a year and all that time he sent me listings and kept in touch to see how things were progressing. When the house sold and I came to AZ to find a place, he had put time aside to show me around and had done his homework and found listings that matched my interest. I really felt that he was looking out for me during negotiations and the purchase process of the new home. He was personable and professional throoughout the whole process!

Once we where ready to make our move he showed us the homes we where interested in plus a couple others.We found the one we liked and after submitting our offer he helped expedite the sale so that we closed in 7 days. Then he went out of his way to make sure we where in the house the same day. Many Kudo's to John!! If you are looking for a great agent that will put your needs and wants first, I highly recommend John.

    The most important thing John did for us is he did not waste our time. We gave him the criteria of what we were looking for and he found houses to show us that matched that criteria. He also provided us with valuable information about how the market has changed since we bought 2 other homes over 6 months ago. This was very helpful to us in making an offer on a home. We used John 6 months ago, used him to purchase this home and would access him again in the future if there is a need. Also, I would recommend John to anyone. He has been great each time we have used his services. He is a good listener as to what we were looking for and matched us up with specifics as to what we wanted to look at in homes. I am sure we will stay in touch and use John again as our agent if we purchase another home in the future.

    Not sure why You would say such a thing. You came to me wanting to purchase a condo. I set up a search of the condos available and made you aware of the properties that met your criteria as well as the market condition at this time. You also wanted to finance the pruchase and suggested talking with a lender to get the pre approval in place. Knowing the details of what you wanted to do I did what I could to grease the wheels so you could meet your goals. If I misunderstood what you wanted to do or your plans changed by all means let me know so that I can get you the service and information you are wanting. My only goal with all my clients is to make their purchase experience as stress free and smooth as possible.

    I have been a real estate agent in the past so I have knowledge of the process. John was very professional, available and proactive in keeping me informed. He also found the house I purchased when he researched another listing I was interested in. I would highly recommend him and would use his services again. The fact that there is an added bonus that will be returned to me made the experience completely satisfying and rewarding.

    Being from Canada we had no idea on what to expect in terms of purchasing our property in Arizona. As it turned out, John was an absolute pleasure to deal with. He took the time to go out of his way to help ensure we ended up with a property we were going to be excited about. We would highly recommend John to anyone looking for someone with integrity and the willingness to go the extra mile for his clients. Trevor and Corey Pocaluyko

    John is very professional, respectable, and did everything in his power to help me purchase my house and I cant say enough good things about him! Thank you Zip realty for having a realtor named John Jacobs!! Excellent! What the listing agent put us both through was unbelieveably bad, still John kept his cool, and worked with me and that dirtbag listing agent to get the deal done. Youve got a great Realtor there Zip Realty!! Keep a hold of him, pay him more, what ever it takes, youve got an excellent realtor working for you!!

John really made it possible for me to own my own home. Without him I am not sure that I would have been able to do this process so smoothly and quickly. He has been a joy to work with and I will definately be telling my friends about him and your company.
