John Newlander - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

John Newlander is an extraordinary realtor and person.

He demonstrates a high level of customer support, positive attitude and deep personal commitment in helping fulfill the client's needs. He is extremely knowledgeable, has enormous integrity and is a true professional. John sold our Eagle Glen Corona home in one day! I attribute the quick sale to John's "up-front" planning, execution and attention to detail. John's "on top" of the whole process. Unlike other realtors I have worked with, John communicates continuously with the client to let you know what's going on. I highly recommend John to anyone in search of a realtor.

John did a really top-notch job of selling my house in Balboa.

Throughout the process he kept in frequent touch with several updates every week about who had viewed the house, potential offers and valuable feedback about the current market. His professional attitude and skills coupled with his warmth and sensitivity made for a positive experience. And the house sold in less than 6 months for a good price!

Jane Bauman

We are so glad we chose John as our realtor for the sale of our Laguna Beach home.

Having lived in the house for several decades and been novices in selling a home, we found John to be an excellent listener, knowledgeable, and extremely organized. He kept everything on track, anticipated our needs and answered our questions in a professional, yet user-friendly way. There wasn't a question he couldn't answer, or find the answer for. His friendly, approachable manner belies his incredible knowledge of the real estate market. He made selling our beloved home and moving on to our new adventure a genuine pleasure. We have no reservations in recommending John Newlander.

If you are selling your home, John's marketing program and work ethic is impressive.

Before we called John, we asked a neighbor who sold their home through John what they thought of him. They said he was very impressive. That he was always present at showings and if John said he'd meet the sellers at a certain time, he was always there 5 minutes early. We found this to be the case with John. Very prompt and always returned calls / emails in a timely manner. John communicates regularly regarding the status of prospective buyers and keeps you informed as to market changes that impact the sales price.

John was extremely helpful in assisting my now wife and I find and secure our first home.

I was out of state on orders for 6 months and always had a feeling that everything was in good hands. John is very responsive to any and all questions and very knowledgeable throughout the home buying process. His input, guidance, and honesty ensured that we found ourselves a quality home; moreover, he was also able to negotiate a sale price that was well below the asking price. We were very fortunate to work with John and would not hesitate to utilize and/or recommend his services in the future! "

Evelyn Harding

John was very diligent about advertising our home.

He screened the clients well and gave us his honest feedback regarding perspective renters. He steered us away from one perspective renter and we agreed that his instincts were probably correct.

Amy Altieri

I've known John Newlander for almost 20 years.

He is a wonderful person, trustworthy, impeccable integrity, and a very smart individual. When it came time to sell our family house we naturally thought of John. His values are ours and we knew he would look out for us. He did not disappoint. He guided us through the process and the details, explaining the pros and cons of each decision we had to make. He gave us recommendations but always left the decision to us. I would give him my highest recommendation.

Thomas Dowling

Of all of the fine realtors I have worked with John is absolutely the best.

His knowledgeability is extensive in every area and of every resource I’ve needed when both buying and selling. On top of his expertise is another major ability. He completely gets what I want in a house and the qualities that make it eligible to become home. As soon as a good prospect hits the market he notifies me immediately. He’s great to work with.

Judith Werkstell

We had been looking for a home at the beach (Newport Peninsula) for some time and in the process met John Newlander.

It took us a bit of a search with a few stumbles but found one that was absolutely the right one for us. John helped us through every step with such care and professionalism and made it a relatively smooth purchase. He kept us abreast of everything that was happening or going to happen during the purchasing process and escrow process. We would recommend him to anyone who needs representation in the real estate market. Couldn't be more pleased with the outcome.

Joe and Patti Lassalette

John Newlander was our realtor for three transactions in two years.

John was very responsive to our needs as we sold two homes and bought a third. His communication skills provided good links for us to lenders, buyers, sellers, escrow agents, stagers, and many more people with whom one deals when doing a real estate transaction.

Laura Fontana

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $800K in Laguna Beach, CA.

John is highly dedicated to his clients, taking their best interests into account in negotiations. Very responsive to client needs and requests, even at the last minute. John was an exceptional negotiator; he was able to untangle very tied up negotiations with both our sale property and new purchase property. Whenever needs came up during inspections, he jumped in to correct them immediately, even installing smoke detectors himself! John is respectful of his clients and strives to find the best home, buyer, or both for his clients. He is very responsive to client needs and requests, even at the last minute. I would not hestitate to use John's services in the future.

Michele

John is extremely responsive, calm, and patient.

He always presents more than one option on either side of the mix. We bought our first home with him, and it was a great experience. We used him to sell that home and get us into our current home. Couldn't be more satisfied with our experience.

Chris Whitson

We were extremely pleased with our experience with John Newlander of First Team Realty.

John is a very professional, friendly, and eager-to-help individual whom you will enjoy working with. He helped us with the marketing and prompt sale of our home in a very "soft" market, and also in the purchase of our new home. His dedication and his tireless efforts to find the perfect home, were evident at all times. John was there every step of the way to advise and guide us with this very important decision in our lives. I would strongly recommend John Newlander for anyone considering purchasing real estate. John's character demonstrates attention to detail, honesty, and integrity. Once you have worked with John, he will not only be your realtor for life, but a good friend. We give John an A+ in every category!" Bob & Michelle Bordeaux Laguna Niguel, CA

Robert Bordeaux

John is the best realtor I've ever worked with and all of my previous realtors were excellent.

I both sold and bought through john. Not only did he stay in close touch with me, my requirements, and the market's ability to match them ; he was a fount of information on many related technical subjects re: regulations as well as home maintenance issues and resources , and to a helpful degree on construction info as well as local area neighborhoods and their history and characteristics. Being a local with deep ties to the community helps. He made maneuvering the plethora of paperwork totally painless and explained all of it clearly. There was no lag time between houses being listed and getting me in to seeing them. I was 1st in on several occasions. He is a lovely person and a delight to work with. Goes the extra mile and is superb in his profession and well respected by his peers as was obvious to me several times. (Also a really interesting guy with broad interests and experiences that precede his real estate career.) not a flashy sales type thank goodness - just really good.

Judith werkstell

We couldn't have asked for better service or advice.

John guided us through not just the sale but the rehabilitating of the home. His instincts were spot on when it came to a price and what to negotiate. We closed within 30 days at our price. Thanks John.

Tom Dowling

I am very pleased to share our experience working with John Newlander in the purchase of our dream property in Laguna Beach.

  John worked collaboratively with us to understand our needs, location as well as style / function of a new home.   With John, we conducted an extensive review of the market and looked at many properties until we found our dream property.  We'll miss spending time with John !  If you are looking for a professional that will partner with you and see the search through to successful closure in a non-pressured way, I would highly recommend John Newlander.  Post-acceptance of the offer, John kept asking questions to ensure that we uncovered and closed out all of the details necessary for a successful and low-stress close.  Thanks !
