“John is a consummate professional; always ethical in his actions, true to his word, and results oriented. Throughout our property search, John offered thorough analysis of market conditions and responded promptly to our many questions. During our purchase, John showed exceptional tact and skill during difficult negotiations with the seller. We were extremely satisfied with John's services and would highly recommend John to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in Central Oregon.”

“John Snippen was our sole realtor for our search for a new residence when we moved into temporary housing in Central Oregon. Always professional and always fun to work with, John ultimately led us to a final resolution that is the perfect fit for us. John receives our highest recommendation.”

“As you may or may not know, for the past year I have been represented many, many clients who have distressed housing issues, including short sales. Virtually every one of my clients have had a Realtor assisting them. I want to say that of all the Realtors I’ve dealt with, the example you set in helping Shawn represents the “Gold Standard” in how short sales should be handled to result in a successful closing. I recently wrote an article for the PMAR newsletter on 2011 Realtor Best Practices in handling for short sales. The example you set was the template for my article. As we are going to see short sales around for at least a couple more years, this is a business model that most Realtors will have to learn and adapt to. It not only requires hard work, long hours and perseverance, but it also requires people skills and intelligence. Your work for Shawn demonstrated to me that you’ve mastered the essentials earlier than most. Keep up the good work!”

“When we began our search for a new home it was paramount that we have a realtor dedicated to our needs. We interviewed several realtors in the area, but there was only one that met our expectations. John Snippen exudes professionalism, knowledge, and true dedication to clients. John is well versed in all aspects of the home buying process. His local knowledge of neighborhood planning and bylaws was a great asset. Without reserve we recommend John to individuals looking for an advisory in the real estate market.”

Bradley and Kirsten

“I was a first time home buyer and John Snippen helped me navigate the market with his knowledge, experience and even a bit of humor. John became a new father during my house hunting but he always found time to work for me. He was always careful to give his opinion without influencing mine and when it came time to buy, his aggressive approach helped me win the house over many other buyers. I enjoyed my time with John and find it very easy to speak highly of him to friends and family.”

Amy

“I found working with John Snippen to be a very positive and rewarding experience. Not only did he sell my home when other properties weren't selling, he also helped me find the perfect property for my advancing needs. I spent nine months with John viewing more than 100 houses. I am now happily settled in my new home. This was my first major purchase as a single person. It was reassuring and comforting knowing that John was always representing and protecting my best interests. I have complete faith, trust and respect for this young man.”

Susan

“When John worked with me I found him to be professional, responsive and realistic. These are valuable traits in any environment but even more so in the challenging environment we face today. John was able to position my house realistically and well and we got to an acceptable transaction in what was a very short time. John’s attentiveness to detail, quick response to issues that arose, and action orientation kept things on track to a successful conclusion. I highly recommend John to others.”

“I was referred to John by a mutual friend, and contacted him with some questions about the Central Oregon Real Estate market. Most of my communication was via email, John was always detailed and thorough in his explanation. Because of John's communication, we hired him to sell our property. With email, the communication needs to be clear and concise, with no room for a misunderstanding and John is proficient with all of his communication. My wife and I had a property to sell in Central Oregon, while our primary residence was in Portland. We had a lot of questions, we had been involved in many real estate transactions before with other properties. John, didn't make any assumptions, he answered all of our questions and backed up his answers up with Real Estate data from the area.  Because we lived away from Central Oregon, email was the best way for us to communicate. Email is a valid communication channel, which is convenient, and permanent. John has embraced technology by using email effectively, always asking if all of our questions were answered. In all of my experience with my real estate transactions, John was professional, always having our best interests at heart, respectful, and down right pleasant to do business with. We not only had a great experience working with John, we have gained a friend because of our transaction. I am highly recommending John, to anyone interested in Central Oregon Real Estate.”

Jeff and Tracy

“With professional calm and a touch of humor, John Snippen guided us toward our pressing goal: buying a house for our daughter. John spent a major portion of each day keeping us informed of possible prospects and sorting listings according to our demanding criteria. Through his unstinting efforts, we located that "perfect house". John provided guidance during every portion of the intricate financial and legal aspects of our purchase. We recommend him without reservation for any real estate matters.”

Dean and Yvonne

“With pleasure, we would recommend John Snippen as a professional who understands the value of personal relationships, strategy in a tough real estate market and communication. We placed a lot in Pronghorn, Bend, OR on the market, under John Snippen’s brokerage. Throughout the time our property was on the market, John communicated relevant real estate market conditions and situations. Ultimately, John found a purchaser for our property and worked with us through the sales transaction. The purchaser required a very fast turn-around time. Not residing in Bend, it was extremely important for us to know John was knowledgeable with the twists and turns the economy. John’s true knowledge of real estate market conditions, his strong communication skills and valuing client relationships will always place his clients in good hands. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have regarding our real estate experience with John Snippen as our broker.”
