Patrick and I want to thank you again for how organized, thorough, and effective you were in getting our Wilmette home sold this fall. Your efforts were reflected in the incredible 7 days to a contract, in a slow market, and in the late fall! Without your hard work we would not be enjoying our Napa Valley home right now.
From our first discussion of putting our home on the market you answered our numerous questions, took photos when the flowers bloomed, and explained the new housing market. When we were ready to go on the market you made a brochure of our home that was breathless in its beauty and style.
I was especially impressed by how many real estate agents from around the North Shore and the City you were able to attract to the Realtor Open House. You spoke with each Realtor who showed our home to their clients and gave us such reassuring feedback that we felt confident our “Days on Market” wouldn’t be long. We were, however, gleefully surprised when you came with a contract on our 7th day on the market and the very evening of our first Public Open House.
But perhaps your finest talent is your tenacity! No detail, no question, no glitch was too small to escape your attention. Through the negotiations, inspection, contingencies, and closing you never let us down, never quit, never stop working for our best interest. You followed up, tracked down, and provided solutions, sometimes even before we knew a problem existed.
Thank you again for getting us quickly to our new California home.
Patrick and Leigh Ann, Wilmette Sellers
John assisted us with the purchase of our new home as well as the sale of our old house. He is extremely knowledgeable about the local real estate market as well as about local home builders. He is also very responsive, a consummate professional and has a calm demeanor – a big asset during stressful real estate transactions. His expertise was invaluable in both the sale and purchase processes for us. John consistently went the extra mile without being asked, including having our old home staged and advocating for us throughout the process of purchasing our new home. He voluntarily spent time inspecting the completion of finishes and other items in our newly built home – highlighting items needing attention to us and our builder. We are very grateful for all the assistance, expertise and advocacy John provided and we give him our highest recommendation.
Michele and Ted, Wilmette Buyers and Sellers
The entire process was unbelievably smooth and effortless thanks to your knowledge and expertise. We had hoped that your prediction of a quick sale was accurate, but we never believed we would sell our house within 3 days! When you helped us purchase our first home in Evanston 4 years ago, you greatly eased our anxiety. Your patient and easy going personality was exactly what we needed. For these reasons and more, we did not think twice about asking you to assist us again.
Dawn & Paul, Evanston Sellers
I had the most wonderful experience working with Mr. John Nash and hope to be able to do justice in putting into words the pleasant journey that I had with him while searching for a home. John patiently listened to the characteristics of my dream home, and narrowed his search to exactly what I had asked for without wasting time on properties that did not match my criteria. He patiently set up multitude of appointments and continued to walk through many homes without ever insisting on one until I completed my search. He answered all of my questions thoroughly. He took the time to do research and get back to me whenever there was need to do so. He stood by me and continued to guide me with great flexibility through this long process of search which lasted nearly a year. His patience, honesty, wealth of experience as a seasoned real estate agent as well as background as a lawyer are some of the qualities that singles him out as a superb agent. I highly recommend him because of his expertise as a real estate agent and highly humanistic qualities that truly makes you realize that you are in the best of hands. I respect and highly trust his expert opinion and feel fortunate to have met such a responsible, flexible, knowledgeable, friendly, and kind person. Furthermore, John was able to give referrals to other individuals along the way who proved to be superb in their field as well (real estate lawyer, home inspector,…). He protected my interest as if he was protecting the interests of his family members. Indeed, working with him makes you feel that God has kept you in the palm of his hands. I truly feel fortunate to have met him and will always continue to work with him in the future.
Shiva, Wilmette Buyer
Ted Nash made the experience of buying my first condo easy and enjoyable. Ted was responsive and on top of every detail. His insights on the area, the market, and each of the units we viewed, were invaluable and helped me make an informed final choice.Ted was also an expert guide in the buying process, answering in detail all my questions about offers, contracts, appraisals, and the many other steps along the way. When it came to the negotiation, Ted was a rock and secured me a great deal; I purchased my condo well under list and appraisal price, making it not only a wonderful home, but a solid financial investment. I couldn’t have asked for a more effective agent. I would definitely recommend working with Ted!
Jamie, Evanston Buyer
Ted sold my house in Wilmette. He knows the market, understands how to structure the deal, and stays calm no matter what. He is also just very pleasant to work with. Ted will be my first call when I’m ready to sell my next property. – Susan Wilmette Seller
Susan, Wilmette Seller
We met John at an open house and we were so impressed with his sincerity and the way he represented the sellers that I ended up choosing him for our agent despite number of agent referrals from our friends. We were facing several challenges as our search area was narrow, inventory almost non-existent at our price points, and we had to move before our lease expired. John was reassuring and patient through all this and never pushed or imposed. When our house came on the market, he immediately recognized it as our target home and moved us quickly and decisively through the contract process. John’s experience, expertise and network extended beyond buying and selling process as he continued to help us settle into our new home by generously sharing his resources. We’ve been living in our new home for a month now, and we are assured every day that we made a great decision with John and our new home.
Nicole, Wilmette Buyer
John found the perfect home for our family in a very short period of time during a low inventory and high demand market. We now own a beautiful home in our targeted neighborhood because of his relationships, local knowledge, experience and expert negotiation. He is honest, responsive and resourceful. Even after the transaction, he continues to provide a wealth of information and resources. We highly recommend John for your real estate transaction!
Libby and Mark, Wilmette Buyers
Sixteen years ago I was moving back to the area and John was highly recommended. John was knowledgable, honest, and so helpful when I was in the buyer’s position. Over the years I have turned to John for information and advise and asked him to help me rent my mother’s house. This past year when I went to sell, there was no question I’d go to John. He demonstrated the same expert help and advise I received 16 years ago. In buying, selling and renting, John was invaluable.
Margaret, Wilmette Buyer and Seller
John Nash has provided us with a great experience of buying a home in the area. We are repeat clients, and we were referred to John by others who were equally satisfied. He took us very patiently all the way through from looking at what was available to waiting for something that we liked to show up to bargaining to closing. And that’s not to mention his willingness to assist once it is over. He was readily available for tours and had insights about the houses and the market overall both in terms of living there and of resale value. Really great experience
Georgy, Wilmette Buyer
John provides a comprehensive house selling experience. He helped in so many ways to ready our house for listing, marketing and showing the property and even went the extra mile to make the closing smooth. This is the second time we have used John as our realtor. He helped us find our home 13 years ago and helped us sell it this year.
Nadine, Wilmette Buyer and Seller
John and Ted proved to be the perfect choice to assist us with our real estate needs. They assisted us with presenting and selling our home and also with purchasing our new home in Wilmette. We feel we adjusted the price of the home we were selling at just the perfect time in order to entice the right buyer. They met our wish to find something smaller in walkable distance from our child’s school. We would recommend John and Ted for their professionalism, diligence, warmth, and thorough understanding of the north shore real estate market
Michael and Meaghan, Wilmette Buyers and Sellers
As clients, it’s fair to say we were a huge pain. We looked at houses off and on for years, but ended up rejecting everything. John and Ted Nash were nothing short of wonderful throughout. Ted has the practical expertise of a contractor, the professionalism of a lawyer, and the patience of a saint. John complements Ted perfectly, with superior technical know-how and the attention to detail that’s so important in a big transaction. When we finally found the house we’d been waiting for, they both worked extremely hard to get us across the finish line. We recommend John and Ted Nash unreservedly, and congratulate them for finally bringing us ‘home.
Christine and Chris, Kenilworth Buyers
Flawless. John sold our home with multiple bids above asking and helped us buy in the same market below asking. He has the most wonderful calm personality and guides with a gentle, knowledgable expertise of the North Shore. A truly great experience.
Robyn, Wilmette Seller
John is extremely knowledgeable in the North Shore area and is great to work with. He is very responsive and accommodating and provides all the personal attention you will need and then some. He helped us quickly find our dream home despite tough market conditions. We always recommend John to anyone we know interested in moving to our area.
Tom and Sarah, Wilmette Buyers
John Nash is exceptional. His professionalism, dedication, and expertise in the North Shore real estate market helped us to buy with confidence. And then, only two years later, when we needed to move for a new job, John was incredibly helpful and 100% committed to helping us sell quickly and for a great price. He was always available to answer our questions; he knew all the ins and outs of contracts and negotiations; and his recommendations for the best local contractors and services were absolutely spot-on. He is reliable, personable, and has our highest recommendation. If you need to buy or sell your home, John is absolutely the right person for the job.
Bahareh and Joe, Evanston Buyer and Seller
In both our recent purchase and sale, your knowledge of the market was extremely helpful. Your market analysis of our property was detailed and informative and we also liked that you kept us up to date on the recent listings and sales in Wilmette. This provided us with the information we needed to determine the right price to list and sell our property. We also realized how hard you worked to market our property and your advice regarding some improvements helped make the house look its best. We also know that you went the extra mile with the numerous details that are involved in selling a home and want you to know that you made the process much easier. We will recommend you to our friends and family.
Tom, Wilmette Seller
Anyone who needs a realtor in the North Shore should hire John Nash. With John as our realtor, less than 24 hours after going on the market we had a contract to sell my house in Wilmette. For more than our asking price!
Andre, Wilmette Seller
I appreciated the expert appraisal of our homes’s value. We were extremely pleased to sell the house within the first week of showings. You helped make the process much more comfortable than I had imagined it would be. You are an excellent communicator. Thank you for taking the time to contact each visiting broker and ask for feedback after each showing. Thanks for guiding us through the sometimes difficult negotiation phase of contract acceptance.
Ted, Wilmette Seller
We had the pleasure of working with John for both the purchase of a new home and the sale of our condominium. We have found him to be professional, of excellent moral character, and a man of outstanding integrity. True to form, John was tireless in finding potential buyers for our place. He provided valuable recommendations in order for it to show its best and went above the call of duty. We offer our unconditional endoresment for John’s services. If you are buying, selling or both, John will make it happen for you!
Bryan & Cathy, Evanston Sellers
One of the best things to happen in our house hunting process was us getting John as our real estate agent. My husband shortlisted 3 agents and chose him. He was very impressed with John’s data based, quantitative mind set in analyzing the real estate market.
John is very, very patient (we must have seen a 100 homes!) and listened really well to understand our needs. We struck a very good rapport with him and soon got to trust his judgement and sense of value a lot. Even when we got discouraged when we had to retract our offer from the first house, John’s spirits were up and he said ‘there a lot of good houses out there, we just have to find it.’ John was always on time for every single appointment, we would actually try and get to the first house early just so he could be ‘late’ but no…he was always there before us!
Even after we’ve bought our home, John keeps in touch with us with market reports and recommendations for places in and around Wilmette. And I know that if there’s any house related work I ever want to get done, John will have a contact for it.
I would strongly recommened anyone looking for a home in the Wilmette, IL (and near abouts as well) to go with John as their agent. We would do it again, for sure!”
Lavanya, Wilmette Buyer
John was extremely helpful in our search effort. He provided us with a number of choices and provided a balanced perspective in the homes we went to see. He was an extremely good listener and provided homes that aligned closely with what we were looking for. He had a very pleasant demeanor and was very punctual and organized when we went to see homes. All in all, we loved working with John and would have no hesitation in recommending John to our friends.
Krishna, Wilmette Buyer
We know John from our neighborhood and selected him as our agent to sell our house based on word of mouth reviews. And am I glad we did. John is extremely knowledgeable about the area in general, specific homes on the market or coming on on the market (very important to be the “first in line”), other agents, the process, the strategies, etc. He is also very patient. On the selling side, we initially priced our home above John’s recommendation and he did not object. When we quickly sold our home in 2010 it was at almost the exact price John predicted. He was very diligent and thorough in selling our home in a down market. We were under contract in 3 months and sold in about 5 months while some homes listed at the same time as ours are still sitting on the market.
John is also very patient on the buying side. We had a very specific price range and limited geographical area (our kids’ school district) and John was excellent at finding homes we were interested in, many before they officially hit the market, one of the most valuable services John can provide. We must have looked at over 50 homes, put contracts on 10-15, including one foreclosure (a nightmare). John has great judgement when it comes to predicting a realistic and fair sale price and negotiating to get that price. We are very happy with the house we bought, and the price we paid.
John also has lots of contractor contacts that can get the job done quickly in a pinch, but also at fair prices. We have used a few of his contacts and been very satisfied.
I strongly recommend John for anyone looking to buy and/or sell their home or other real estate. We’re hoping not to move for at least 20 years, but if we do John will be getting a call. A class act all around. Thanks, John!
Emmett, Wilmette Seller and Buyer
John Nash has the experience, the expertise, the organizational skills, and the untiring energy to sell homes. He helped us price our home right, worked tirelessly to ensure that our home was advertized everywhere, networked with other realtors and was successful in selling our house in a very reasonable amount of time. John also knows the ins and outs of houses and how they work(electric, plumbing, etc.), which adds greatly to his ability to help clients. He gives 110% at all times and is surely one of the most honest, trusted and respected realtors on the North Shore. We recommend him highly.
Emily and Paul, Wilmette Seller and Buyer
My real estate goals were very challenging, to say the least. If not for the knowledge John Nash displayed in all aspects of real estate, it simply would not have been possible to accomplish them. I saddled him with the task of selling a multi-family property in Evanston and then to immediately find me a single-family home in Glenview that met my tough specifications.
On the selling end, John’s expert marketing helped sell my property in a very tough market. But what impressed me most were his negotiation skills, which held the deal together over many unforeseen obstacles.
On the buying end, he listened closely to my wants and needs, and quickly honed in on exactly what I was looking for. His hands-on approach made all the difference, and I ended up exactly where I wanted. The bottom line is that through employing innovative techniques and listening to our unique situation, John Nash was able to accomplish more than our expectations. Whether youâ€™re buying or selling or both, I am sure you’ll be extremely happy with John as your Realtor. Can’t recommend him enough!
Janis LaSalle, Evanston Buyer and Seller
Every step of the way, John was truly our ally and fought on our behalf. He listened to and took care of our concerns. He worked very hard, created excellent marketing materials, and always acted in a timely and efficient manner. We strongly recommend John to any prospective Seller or Buyer.
