“It was an absolute pleasure to work with John. I could not have imagined a better experience selling my property.
John was one of the most pleasant men I have ever met.”
Josh Vice, Woodstock (Seller)
“John Montemayor came highly recommended to me and I was pleased with him and his service from the very beginning. He met all the expectations we had based on his high praise. He was very respectful and professional. He was accessible, and he was prompt in his communications, as well as organized in guiding me through the process. He was helpful answering questions about finances, homes, and communities. I would highly recommend John to others!
John helped me navigate conversations with lenders and lawyers, home inspectors and insurance agents, from beginning to end. He offered recommendations for every service needed. I usually trusted his recommendations. Once or twice I shopped around for services but couldn't find anything better than what he had recommended.
John's recommendations proved to be helpful not only in finding the best service providers, but also in helping me secure my home and save money on it. He recommended a particular lender, and that lender had high credibility with the selling realtor, which contributed to my successful offer on the property. John provided helpful guidance as I determined my offer amount and he helped me understand and utilize the escalation clause, which helped save me money.
Most of our open houses and tours were virtual, so John's guidance was particularly helpful. A few houses looked good in the pictures, but John was able to point out the deficiencies noticeable in person, to help us avoid homes that would not be a good fit for us given our needs and wants, and ultimately help us find our new home. John was incredible in his availability, prompt replies, knowledge and guidance, and his willingness to be a service to me and my family and help us find the right home for us. We are grateful to God for him!”
Alex, Montclair (Buyer)
“I believe John saved us a lot of money and worked very hard to ensure that we received "top dollar" for the home we sold.”
Don Sampson, Manassas (Seller)
“Mr. Montemayor’s knowledge of the local/national market and his ability to convey that knowledge to myself far exceeded any expectations I had.
Century 21 Redwood Realty did an excellent job with my home buying process. They were consistently available, friendly and proficient.
Mr. Montemayor was extremely professional. He built an environment where my family and I felt taken care of while being able to ask any questions. He answered his phone and email all hours of the day and night. He didn’t hesitate on any occasion to view a house, contact a listing agent or generally do anything we asked.
Century 21 Redwood and more specifically Mr. Montemayor exceeded expectations throughout the process of my home purchase.
This is my second home purchase. The difference between quality of treatment and services rendered between Mr. Montemayor and my previous agent were stark. Mr. Montemayor was fantastic and a true agent on the side of the buyer (us).”
Daniel Phillips, Alexandria VA (Buyer)
“John Montemayor was a pleasure to work with and made the process go smoothly and orchestrated all transactions in a timely manner. Availability was no issue. I will use again. ”
Marc, Hillsboro, VA (Seller)
“John made the process painless. He kept us informed every step of the way. His knowledge was awesome and took so much of the anxiety away from us. Anyone who is selling or buying will not be disappointed by using John Montemayor. I couldn't be more pleased. Thank you!!
John is a genuine and honest professional. ”
Patrick Graham manassas va (Seller)
“Working with John Montemayor was a pleasure, as the buying process was complicated. He worked diligently to help us skillfully negotiate the price we wanted. During a very busy buying season, he also helped keep the process on track and close on time when we kept hearing of other buyers experiencing delays. If you want someone who pays attention to the details, then you need John Montemayor! Through his hard work, we were able to not only buy what we wanted at the price we wanted, but do it in a timely fashion!”
Holmbergs, Front Royal (Buyer)
“John was fantastic through the whole process start top finish. He was completely knowledgable of pricing and homes in Montclair and was the ultimate professional. I would highly recommend him.”
Steve Wade, Montclair, VA (Seller)
“John was a true professional in every aspect of the sale and I would highly recommend him.”
Steve Wade, Manassas (Seller)
“There are probably lots of solid brokers out there. John M is in a class by himself--peerless integrity, professionalism, knowledge, to name just a few important qualities. I'd have been nuts to select someone else.
John nailed every aspect of the sale from start to finish. Clear communication at the beginning laid out clear expectations and helped us understand the process. Constant communication kept us informed at every stage--he sent so many updates it was hard to keep up with them all! Could not have asked for a more competent, caring, and knowledgeable professional!
By any measure, John exceeds all expectations in all areas: Polite, Understanding, Friendly, Patient, Knowledgeable, Helpful, Trustworthy, Professional, Timely communications, Clear communications, Accessible, Respectful, and most important, he's Approachable!! John stands head/shoulders above other brokers in all areas!
Exceptional experience--the property sold lightening fast, thanks to his tireless efforts!”
HV Ritschard, Cheyenne, WY (Seller)
“You MUST use John Montemayor if you are looking to buy or sell a house in Northern Virginia. There is no one who can compete with his knowledge, workethic, and cheerfulness. He steered us away from problem houses and helped us find the perfect home for our family. John was always available and able to answer all of our questions across a range of topics. Our home buying experience could not have been better, and we owe it all to John Montemayor. We will absolutely be using him when we sell our home.”
Alex P, Stafford VA (Buyer)
“John simplified the process of home buying with his expertise every step of the way. His attention to detail is unmatched and he was extremely thorough and responsive! We are so thankful for John and already plan on using him for our next military move! He treats his clients like family and truly cares for your best interests! He gave us weekly updates on our property while we were on the other side of the country and was always available to answer questions! Without his initiative, I’m confident we would have missed the opportunity to buy our house in this fast-moving market. We couldn’t be happier with John’s services and our home! ”
Greg, Leesburg (Buyer)
“I contacted Century 21 Redwood Realty and John Montemayor because I was very impressed with their web site, and I am very glad I did. I have sold several houses and John Montemayor was by far the best agent I have worked with. His professionalism, attention to detail, and communication skills are outstanding. John assisted us in getting our house ready for the photographer and for showings. He arranged and accompanied the photographer and produced an amazing online listing! Our listing went active at 10 AM and in less than 6 hours we had a solid offer for more than we had expected, what more could anyone want?? The Century 21 Redwood Realty team supporting John was spectacular. The photos, 3d modeling, and video work was fantastic and our online listing was beyond belief. I would not hesitate to use John Montemayor and/or Century 21 Redwood Realty again, higher praise I cannot give!!”
Bill Manifold, Manassas, VA (Seller)
“John proved to be very hard working, knowledgable, and reliable. He frequently communicated with us and was extremely fast in returning communication. John was very patient, taking the time to get to know us and putting our general well-being above everything else. If there was anything he could take off our plate and put on his, that’s what he did. John truly exceeded our expectations, and we will recommend him to all of our family and friends who need a realtor! ”
Kevin & Sarah, Woodbridge (Buyer)
“John was fantastic to work with throughout my home buying experience. From helping me understand all the details of the home buying process to showing me dozens of houses and helping me narrow down my choices. I would highly recommend John to anyone looking to buy a house, especially if you are new to the town and/or are a veteran. You will not regret it!”
Sean - Herndon, VA (Buyer)
“John made the home buying process very seamless and fun. He was a huge asset to us and was extremely knowledgeable about what we should be looking for in our first home.
He also handled everything in a very timely manner. He communicated with our lender to make sure we closed by a strict closing timeline with no hitches.
We will not hesitate to recommend him to anybody looking for a home in the area.”
Jenifer, Woodbridge (Buyer)
“John made the sale seem perfect. Everything went along with no problems for us. He was very thorough. If we were to sell again we would certainly prefer to use Mr. Montemayor without even calling anyone else. We have already referred him to anyone we talk to and will continue top do so. ”
Dan Hall, Heathsville, VA (Seller)
“Not only did John enable me to receive a great price for my home, he always kept me informed about the housing market through emails and newsletters.”
Mario Cantu, Woodbridge (Seller)
“John was completely involved in the process from start to finish. Amazing knowledge base and very well prepared. John is the best real estate agent I have ever worked with! Wonderful service, maximized our profits, full asking price for our home. Highly recommend!”
Tom Q, Woodbridge, VA (Seller)
“John pulled the sale of our home over the goal line in spite of a global pandemic.
That level of commitment is truly rare. ”
Kevin Pike Woodbridge (Seller)
“John Montemayor was great to work with, from start to finish. He was patient with my wife and four-year-old son, flexible when we hit hiccups, and timely with the paperwork. No pressure and truly on our side, pointing out flaws and problems in some houses that we might have overlooked, keeping us from making mistakes. He got to know us and made sure we got into the right house for our needs and budget.
John came highly recommended by several family friends who had worked with him previously and had nothing but high praise for him, all of which turned out to be completely well founded.
Frankly, John is the ultimate professional, a master of his craft. And no, this high praise is not meant to be overblown or flippant; he really is that good. Not to put too fine a point in it, but John was fantastic! Best realtor I've ever dealt with.
Phil Stevenson, Fredericksburg, VA (Buyer)
“Professional, classy, extremely respectful and took extra time to explain all aspects of my purchase. ”
Richard Brannan, Woodbridge, VA. (Buyer)
“A true professional who consistently ensured we were considering properties for all the right reasons. He offered his expertise in so many ways as we were first time home buyers. He understood our concerns as a military family and took special care to be flexible and available. His knowledge of the local area and, particularly, how to best commute between multiple military bases, made this experience much easier.
We reached out to John with very short notice. He immediately moved appointments around to help us and ensure we could make our timelines for home buying/searching as directed by our military jobs. He also, when he was unavailable, linked us up with his outstanding coworker.
We have already recommended John to another military family coming to the area this summer!”
Danielle Phillips, Dumfries (Buyer)
“Our house was sold in April 2019 did not go to settlement until Nov. 2019. As stated before there was a problem with the septic system that had to be repaired. John helped us to get through this by helping to find contractor to do the work. also made calls to the contractor on the progress. John and i talked at least once a week or maybe more. Any issue i had John took care of immeniately. I cannot express my appreciation for John help. I would be happy to help John in any way.
Ed Pravlik Unionville va. (Seller)
“From the moment I spoke with Mr. Montemayor on the phone, he immediately established rapport, and I knew we would work great together because both of us were Veterans.
Mr. Montemayor was there every step of the process from suggesting I take a photo of my earnest money check for my records to providing very detailed information relating to the contract and closing procedures. One night I was unable to get to a computer because I was traveling, and he read verbatim to me the contract then encouraged me to re-read when I got to my destination. Additionally, Mr. Montemayor was tremendously knowledgeable of the area and the negotiating process.
Mr. Montemayor and I had quite a few challenges and roadblocks along the way, varying from difficult sellers to my lender, not meeting deadlines. Mr. Montemayor maintained his professionalism impeccably throughout.
This is the fourth property I have purchased over the years, and he would be the seventh realtor I have dealt with; Mr. Montemayor is hands down the very best realtor I have ever had. Also, I want to make this clear to the reader; I am simply not just writing him a good review because he asked, or because it is a courtesy. John was outstanding and went out of his way to ensure my wife and I were taken care of. ”
John G. Autry, Manassas (Buyer)
