    Bruce did a great job helping my husband and I in our search for a new downsized home. Great local knowledge which was important since we are new to the area.

    Bruce had been working with us on looking a house for about two months. We started off with houses out in Dorr and Allegan; but once we knew our price range with a pre approval we started to look at houses in holland. He was very quick to respond and was able to set up appointments as soon as the next day which helped us stay on top of our ultimate goal of finding and buying our house. He was good at answering any questions we had. Overall Bruce is a good real estate agent and does good at his job.

    Bruce was able to sell my house quickly to a couple that attended the open house! He then learned quickly what I wanted in my next house and gave me the tips I needed to navigate this fast paced market!

    Bruce was excellent. He took very good care of us. Always very quick to respond to our questions. Very prompt as well. We are '5 minutes early' folks and he was always at the properties we looked at ahead of us.

    My trust in Bruce spread over to my wife. He has assisted us in selling and buying four homes. There wasn't any hesitation selecting Bruce as our realtor. He has demonstrated not only professionalism, but the utmost integrity and honesty a client would want in their realtor. We consider Bruce a great friend and would recommend him to any one considering buying or selling a home. Call Bruce Johnson first!

    This is our 5th House that we have purchased over a 30 year span. This purchase was unique in the sense that we are in a market that people have to react quickly on in order to purchase a house (seller's market). High points: the property closed quickly, utilities were changed rapidly, we got what we were looking for (our musts and would like to have). We ended up with a nice house in a setting that is suitable for us. Low point: We were surprised when we found out that we had to wait a period of time, after closing, before we could actually move into the house. Again, this is our 5th house and we had never experience something like this prior. It was an unexpected change, combined how it was communicated. Overall: Looking past the one item, I would say that we are well pleased with the quality of the house, the location and how it will fit our needs. In my hearts of hearts, I truly believe that Bruce Johnson did the best he had to work with given a "tight" housing market (low inventory). Bruce Johnson had a good set of contacts (financial institutions and insurance agencies) that we ended up using. This helped us to move rapidly through the closing process. Only advice going forward: For people like us, coming from out of state, please, please communicate (over communicate) that they could experience waiting for a time to take possession after closing. This is our 2nd time in working with Coldwell Banker personnel for purchasing a house. I would do it again, if needed.

    We have had the privilege of Bruce representing us for at least five transactions over the last five years. His professionalism and perseverance shines through the selling/purchasing process each and every time. Bruce Johnson is a master of his craft and more skilled than agents we have interacted with in the past. We will continue to recommend and use Bruce for any and all real estate transactions for years to come!

    Thrilled to have Bruce as my realtor! Professional, punctual and knowledgeable of each property we visited! It was my first home purchase so Bruce had to answer a LOT of questions for me -- he knew his stuff!! Successfully negotiated down on the asking price, and also got me an appliance allowance to replace the frig and range that had seen better days. I would not hesitate to recommend Bruce to my friends and family Thanks for your dedication and commitment to ensuring I got the very best deal available!!!

    I had never met Bruce prior to partnering with him to find my new home, but he exceeded my expectations. He was available to look at homes during times that worked for my busy schedule. He sought out answers to questions I had, and made sure I was well informed. Now I think of him more as my friend than my agent.

    I worked with Bruce very closely, not only negotiating the purchase of my condo, but subsequently he was instrumental in the sale of my home. From the beginning, Bruce showed to me a level of confidence in his ability to not only put my house on the market, but to work to get it sold, and he did. Within 5 weeks, my house was sold. Bruce worked hard, kept in constant contact with me, keeping me updated on the status of what was going on either by text or a phone call. He was available whenever I had a question or concern. He showed me that he was looking out for my best interests with the negotiations and his attention to the details was spot on. I would highly recommend using Bruce whether you are buying or selling. He can and did do it all for me.

    13 years ago Bruce helped me find my condo which I loved from the beginning. With every listing he never showed me any thing that would be above what I could afford, was never in an area that I wouldn't be comfortable in. I appreciated this because I had never done this before. When it came time to sell my condo, I didn't hesitate to call upon Bruce again. Once more he delivered in a big way and in a time that was remarkably quick. His advice on how to present my condo was spot on. I even credit him for finding the right person to buy my condo-----one I was happy to sell to. Long story short, he was great, the right person for the job. He did great by me-----both times.

    Bruce was great to work with. He went above and beyond our expectations of what it takes to be a realtor. He was available whenever we needed him and was always quick to respond back to any questions or concerns we had. We couldn't of asked for a better realtor.

    I would have liked to check more strengths but some things just happened and I was not privy exactly to how they happened. So those not checked are not a criticism but an "I really don't know". I am pretty opinionated about professional issues and protocol due to past job experience where those skills counted and were expected. Bruce took me on as a client knowing this about me, knowing I was going to push this train all the way to the roundhouse and because of his grace we worked together and got a favorable outcome for all parties. This whole experience was really subjective. Sales of any kind can be really fickle. A new prime time show with certain set décor or a crime wave downtown can change the playing field in a day. I'm sure I frustrated Bruce many times until using feedback he gave me - got it closer to right. In our case the public was not looking at structure and roadworthiness but their idea of personal cosmetic appeal - not mine. That can be totally frustrating to the seller who values décor second. How do you change that? Going through the process I felt the internet hits were a good thing but the results that meant something to me were interest and offers. I felt more could have been done for passerby and foot traffic on the nearby busy street but that's not a criticism towards Bruce's abilities. I lived on a cul-de-sac. Just a feeling from a client that has just gone through the process of selling their house. The selling/buying of a home is never easy emotionally, physically or financially. I think the best I can say for Bruce's service and abilities after the fact is that I still like him and can't think of any one thing that he could done to change our outcome, public being what it is and timing. He allowed me to express my opinions and thoughts regarding each offer and he offered scenarios and data to help in decision making. Each party is trying to get the best and most out of their offer, sifting through the minutia and coming agreeably to the end is what matters.

    Bruce was always approachable and professional. He worked to understand us both as individuals and as new-to-the-area home buyers. Bruce's knowledge of the area was invaluable. Trips to look at homes were both enjoyable and informative. His ability to understand us and our wants/ needs meant we always saw properties that were within our area of focus.
