I have been working with John for the past two years. He has represented me in the sales of several investment properties. Therefore, when my brothers and I decided to sell our parent’s home in Rye Neck, there was no question in my mind who we would use as our real estate agent. The decision to use John was a good one. In the process of selling the home we ran into several environmental, permit, and building inspection issues. John was extremely helpful in working with our architect, the building department, and coordinating communications on a timely basis with me and my two brothers in order to move the sale of our parent’s home along. In addition to his professional skills, my brothers and I found John to be easy to work with and responsive to were concerns and needs.

John Baer is a true professional. A pristine gentleman who takes immediate action to accommodate his clients’ needs. You are always kept informed which is a rare commodity.

John helped us find a great house to rent with a very limited timeline as I was due to start a new job within 6 weeks of first reaching out to him and needed to be moved in before the start date. We were flexible on many criteria in the search, but we were highly focused on finding something in a very safe community that was close to a Metro North train station and also suitable for a family with an infant. John knew the Westchester area extremely well and was able to find properties that we were interested in, ones that fit our predetermined criteria as well as aspects we hadn't thought about, like a fenced-in backyard for our dog. Working on the weekend and at night when necessary, John found us a place that we loved, and we have since signed a lease and will be moving there in a few weeks, ahead of our original schedule. Most importantly, we always felt that John was looking out for our best interests during the entire process. There was never any pressure to have to put in an offer early or do something we weren't 100% comfortable with. During our negotiations with the owner, John expertly helped secure us a better deal on the lease even though his fee would not be increased by doing so. Working with John was, by far, our best experience with a real estate agent to-date, and we would recommend him to any of our friends looking to either buy or rent a house in the Westchester area. We definitely plan to use him once we start looking to purchase a home in the future.

John is an expert on listings, marketplace, pricing, staging and all aspects of real estate buying and selling. John is always upbeat, positive and highly principled. It was my pleasure to work with John on the sale of my co-op apartment. He made the process easy and fun.

John represented my family in connection with all aspects of our recent home purchase. And in that capacity, he exhibited an uncommon sense of responsibility for our best interests and our deal. His efforts were essential to our finding our new home, analyzing its attributes versus recent market deals, negotiating some uncommon terms of our purchase and most important closing the deal. This last component cannot be overlooked as we were dealing with sometimes challenging sellers. Throughout John was a pleasure to work with and a complete value added to the process. I would therefore highly recommend him to anyone looking for an agent in the Scarsdale area.

Well, nine years of building my Doula career and 123 babies later, I was finally able to become a first-time home-owner. I am now able to service lower Westchester (Pelham and surrounding areas) as well as Queens, Nassau, Manhattan and Brooklyn due to my awesome centrality!
It's my pleasure to submit a review for John Baer. He assisted in both the sale of my mother's home and in the search for an apartment. John is knowledgeable about the market and gave us excellent advice on how to price the home and what to do to sell it. We sold the house in record time and for well over the asking price.

We truly enjoyed working with John Baer for the past one year. It took us quite a long time finding the right house for our growing family as I was extremely picky. John was always super patient, kind, responsive, and honest when we needed his recommendation and advice. He was always on time and flexible when needed. He provided us with plenty of information for each listing and always made sure that all of our concerns and questions were answered. I highly recommend working with John to everybody that is searching for their dream house as he is very reliable.Sezen G., New Rochelle, New York

Buying a house can be stressful and we were fortunate to have such a supportive real estate agent as John Baer as our guide. I sincerely recommend John Baer, in particular for his knowledge of the Westchester area, patience in spades, and the personal touch and attention he brought to the process. John helped me and my husband find our current home and we felt very comfortable with him from the beginning. Early on, he took the time to find out what we wanted, even as we were figuring it out ourselves, and helped us attain our goal without any pressure. We spent several months searching in a very hot market and throughout the process, he worked with our endless questions and crazy schedules, showing us dozens of houses and demonstrating patience every step of the way. John took our questions and concerns to heart, doing additional research to provide us with as much information as he could so we could make informed decisions. In the end, because of John’s efforts, our offer was accepted in a multiple bid scenario.

When we’re ready for our next house I will definitely call John! The same day we called him, he showed us a number of houses – and he didn’t stop until we found the right one.

I’d certainly recommend John Baer to anyone looking for a new home. I found him to be focused, responsive and most importantly effective in helping us find our new home.

John’s meticulous attention to detail, ability to listen and kind and patient demeanor would make him a natural for any undertaking. After my husband passed, I spent a year in Nassau County trying to get the cobwebs out of my head. It was now time to move forward. I would look for a rental in Queens. I turned to John even though he was a real estate agent in Westchester County because of his outstanding reputation. I told John that I would like a three bedroom apartment (preferably in a private house or garden apartment) in a desirable section of Queens, with a suburban feel, but the accoutrements of the city, near public transportation to Manhattan and easy access to highways. I explained that I did not want to spend more than $2500 per month, needed a parking spot/garage, updated kitchen, on premise washer and dryer and most importantly a rental that would not require me to take occupancy until six weeks after signing a lease, and not to have to be responsible for paying rent during that six week period since I would be out of the country for much of that time. Within a day's time of contacting John, he e-mailed me six rentals that met most of my requirements. After selecting four of the six rentals, John made arrangements for me to see all four properties the very next day. All four were in Bay Terrace, an attractive area of Bayside, Queens. When all was said and done by the end of the day, John had found me a lovely apartment that met all the above criteria at a rental price of $2050 per month. To say that I found an incredible real estate agent is truly an under-statement. Thank you so much, John. You really surpassed even my expectations of what I thought possible.
