    Highly likely to recommend 07/14/2016 - Delbert Dios - Bought a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $375K in Vallejo, CA. John took the stress out of this experience. Being a first time buyer I had no idea of what I was getting into. John took me step by step the whole way during the process. He was very thorough in explaining what my options were for different pricing and price ranges. My wife and I couldn't be happier when he called and said that were HOMEOWNERS ! Our first choice and we got it. Can't thank John enough for his diligence and professionalism.
    Highly likely to recommend 03/29/2016 - Gloria Melson - Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $200K in Vallejo, CA. I had the pleasure of working with John in 2015 on the sale of my house in Vallejo. John was easy to work with, knowledgeable of the Vallejo area and responsive to all my questions/concerns. With Johns help, I received and accepted an offer in approximately two weeks. I am very pleased with the entire process.
    Highly likely to recommend 04/06/2016 - Showed home in 2016 in Crockett, CA 94525. John is very knowledgeable, helpful, and always available. He showed us a property in Crockett several times and told us about other properties we may be interested in. This was the beginning of our housing search and John helped us navigate these new realty waters. We had gone to open houses in the past and other realtors had really deterred us from the home buying experience -- by being too pushy, or off-putting, or ignoring us, or focusing on others touring, etc. We wanted to write a review to thank John for his assistance showing the property (3x!). We enjoyed meeting John and we would love to work with him in the future. We sincerely thank John for all he has done and plan keep his contact information to refer our friends and family in this area. Thank you, John, most of all, for your great attitude and kindness.
    Highly likely to recommend 02/04/2016 - Tracy Constant - Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in Vacaville, CA. John was amazing! He was very helpful and there when we needed him. Every time I called him, he would answer his phone or if he couldn't answer, he would text immediately to let me know he would call me as soon as he got the chance. He had the answers to every question and was very honest whether the news was good or bad. He never beat around the bush. He's an honest and trustworthy realtor! He made our home buying experience good and less pressurized! Thanks to John!

    Highly likely to recommend 01/05/2016 - Greg Kinsman - Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $375K in Fairfield, CA. I could not ask for more from John. He was very helpful with any questions that I had and was very knowledgeable. He was able to get my home sold in less than a month and for more than my original asking price. What more could you ask for?
    Highly likely to recommend 01/06/2016 - Peter Ozorio - Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $425K in Vallejo, CA. John was knowledgeable, competent and thorough during the whole process. John coordinated with various trades and followed up on any new developments. He was an advocate for the buyer and had good knowledge of the market in the immediate area. His flexibility in schedule and open contact made the process quite smooth. The interaction with the banker, title and seller was positive
    Highly likely to recommend 04/11/2015 - Jett and Milly Thomas - Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $425K in Vallejo, CA. We interviewed several real estate agents when we decided to sell our home late in 2014. We chose John Sloss. He impressed us with his presentation, both written and verbal. His written material was factual and complete. Personally he came across as energetic and knowledgeable. Once retained, John provided us with sound and easy to understand advice. He found our eventual buyer and provided steady support to us during negotiations. During this time, he made many 60 mile round trips to see us in Vacaville with papers to sign and for face-to-face conversations. He arranged for final removal for furniture and clean-up. The home was sold for more than the asking price. We heartily recommend John Sloss as a real estate agent.
    Highly likely to recommend 01/11/2015 - homeorg24 - Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Benicia, CA. Honest and hardworking I would definitely hire him again He cleaned out my parents house disposed of everything and got it set up to sell.

    Highly likely to recommend 04/27/2015 - Roozbeh Nakhaee - Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $325K in Vallejo, CA. Knowledgeable, responsive, hard-working, attention to detail, honest. These are all words to describe John Sloss! We had been working with another realtor but we met John at an open house and knew that he was the right guy to work with. Our first impression was that he was a genuine person and not your average realtor. I feel that most realtors are purely trying to make a sale, but not John. He wants to make sure he finds the exact right home for you and will work tirelessly to find it for you. He's definitely earned our return business. Johns knowledge of the bay area far surpasses anyone I've ever met. He knows the nicknames of the areas and is extremely honest when it comes to describing the area and homes. I'm sure a lot of his knowledge of the area is due to the fact that he has lived in the area for a long time. He spent time with us figuring out exactly what we wanted and narrowed in on exactly those kind of homes. It made our job so much easier. I had been through the home buying process a few times before but never really quite understood the process. It was all a bit of a mystery and a little bit intimidating. John is extremely methodical and was able to explain each step of the process. I now feel that I have a good knowledge in the home buying process! In short, I would highly recommend John!
    Highly likely to recommend 09/13/2015 - Kathy Foster - Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $225K in Vallejo, CA. John is an excellent realtor. Very professional. Kept us informed and was always available. He sold our house in one day at full asking price. Can't ask more than that.
    Highly likely to recommend 01/26/2015 - Carlos Velasquez - Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Vallejo, CA. John was extremity helpful, attentive and very customer service oriented. John's patience and listening skills are superb and sincerely cared about us finding the right house in which WE wanted to live in. John was never pushy, in fact he was the opposite, was very professional, caring and friendly. John was always "Johnny on the spot", returning phone calls quickly and even worked after hours to meet and exceed our expectations. John's welcoming and sincere nature really came across as honest and not contrived. John provided a high level of engaged, attentive, honest customer service that we were very, very happy with.
    Highly likely to recommend 09/13/2015 - Scott Olson- Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $825K in Benicia, CA. John was very easy to work with. His assistance in staging the home and the advice regarding pre inspections was key. Potential buyers were well informed of the home and made their decision on placing an offer easy. John was tuned in to the specific clientele that would be interested in our home and was able to weed out people that just wanted a look.
    Highly likely to recommend 08/14/2015 - Linda Mitchell - Sold a Townhouse home in 2015 for approximately $350K in Benicia, CA. Working with John was a pleasure.

Being inexperienced at this, John did a great job in calming my fears and guiding me thru the whole process. He was always available and helped with my frustrations (at the buyers and their agent), was encouraging and answered my many, many questions. I am very, very grateful for his knowledge, experience, and kindness throughout this time. I will definitely recommend John to anyone who is going to be buying or selling. He deserves all 5 stars!

    Highly likely to recommend 01/17/2020 - Jeff C. Bought a Single Family home in 2020 in Benicia, CA. We are the buyers of John's last closing and could not be happier with him and our new house. We tried other agents/companies but none could keep pace with our level of energy and speed with regard to putting the deal together. We lost a couple of houses with another agent due to their slow responses. John listens and matches the clients needs and wants with the buying process. He keeps his word and does more than he promises. He has a wealth of local connections and they all are stellar companies that make the process of inspecting and such flow so much better. If you are looking for an agent who will respect how you want the deal to work, pay attention to details, and help you make good decisions then John Sloss is the agent for you.
    Highly likely to recommend 01/14/2019 - user1120399 Sold a Single Family home in 2018 in Vista, Vallejo, CA.

He's a great communicator and listener and went above and beyond for us. Highly recommend him!

    My Experience

    • Highly likely to Recommend 11/5/20 - Naa and Matt Lofton - Here are the top 3 reasons we highly recommend John Sloss: * Concierge service - we were from out of the area. John is local and shared his wealth of knowledge as well as resources, with fast responses. Post the transaction, John continues to be trusted resource. * He stuck to what we wanted. Ever worked with a realtor who pushes more expensive properties, or properties that don't resemble your wish list? John listened to our "had to have" and "nice to have" lists carefully. He shared relevant listings and kept asking questions to better represent us. * Resilience - we entered the market in March, just as COVID-19 became a "thing." What a time to be buying, selling and making a major move! John adapted and used new technology to virtually preview properties with us. These walk-throughs went beyond the on-line photos to help us decide if a property was trip-worthy. He also hung in there with us through a longer, more complicated process, due to the pandemic. We closed in August and are very happy in our new home and community. -Ann & Matthew Lofton
