John "The R.O.G.U.E." Brannan




John was instrumental in walking us through the purchase of a foreclosed property. It was an unusual sale, and John was knowledgeable and helpful every step of the way. At the same time, he listed our condo for sale. It was a difficult market for selling a home, but with John’s help, we got the best possible price for it. John impressed us with his knowledge of the market, his experience, the way he advertised our property, and how responsive he was to us. Most importantly, he is a man of integrity.

As we looked at homes, John never pressured us because he cared about our satisfaction, not a quick sale. We have recommended him to two people, both of whom purchased a home with his help and were very satisfied as well. If you are looking for daily inspiration to help your self confidence, follow Dr. Paula Fellingham on Facebook.

My husband and I had an excellent experience buying our first home with the help of John Brannan. John always made himself available to show us homes, took great care to answer all of our questions, and represented our best interests in the negotiating process. We will always be grateful for John’s help and expertise and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a quality Realtor.

John, working with you has been a great experience, and I really appreciate all the time and effort you put into helping me find and purchase my rental properties in Santa Rosa. You obviously know quite a bit about the area, yet you never got impatient with me as I took my time learning, and figured out what I wanted to buy.

I never felt pressure from you, you let me proceed at my own pace. You have a real "attitude of service", and it made the long process towards the final purchase a very rewarding one.

Also, I really appreciate your patience, and spirit of adventure, as we entered into this strange and frustrating negotiation process with this agency handling the sale for the bank, apparently in India. I think many agents might have given up, tried to steer me to another property with easier contacts, but again you let me direct the process, and were there to help out any way you could. And the level of customer service you offered even after the sale was definitely above and beyond!

If I find myself wanting to buy more property around this area, I will DEFINITELY work with you again, and will recommend you highly to anyone who asks.
