John was awesome.  Very reliable, courteous, and professional.  He was extremely patient with my bombardment of questions and was not pushy in any way. I can’t stand dealing with salespeople that are aggressively pushing for money in their pocket vs. truly helping a customer out.   

I would highly recommend John to anyone looking for a home.

I cannot tell you how amazing John was! We were relocated to Austin for my husband's job. We came to this city without knowing much and were completely overwhelmed by the housing market. With so many new neighborhoods popping up all across the city, the idea of selecting one home, in one neighborhood was absolutely daunting. John listened to us and quickly understood our needs and wants. He was able to break through the clutter and chaos of the housing market and select a focused area for us to look in. We were thrilled with all the neighborhoods he selected for us. After we had determined the neighborhoods we wanted to be in, came the task of actually finding a house in one of those top neighborhoods. John was relentless. He took us to house after house after house - meeting with builders and exploring all of our options. We were out with him for ten hours straight on day 1 and the next day he met us again for another 5 hours. I was so grateful that he pushed us to keep looking so that we could find our perfect home in our dream neighborhood. While we do not know what the future has in store for us, I can guarantee that when we eventually sell and buy a new home, John will be our agent of choice. He went above and beyond - far superior to any other realtor we have worked with previously. He is truly Fantastic!

We just relocated from New York, and John Coake helped our move go very smoothly. We planned to come down for two house hunting trips, but John helped us with research ahead of time, and then planned two full days of neighborhood tours... and we found the perfect home on our first trip. He continued to help us coordinate every last detail right up through the closing, which was especially appreciated as we were not here for most of the process. He definitely went beyond the service that most realtors provide, and I would strongly recommend him as a realtor!

From the beginning, John has provided us with excellent communication. Throughout the entire process, we had no hesitation in contacting him to ask regarding anything with the house buying process, neighborhoods, and more. He provided outstanding service from beginning to the final transaction of purchasing our home. We couldn't be happier with him and would highly recommend him. We would give him the highest rating!

Thank you so much, John!

Murray and I feel so relieved and fortunate that we had John Coake as our support, guide and advocate during the potentially stressful process of buying a house. John quickly adjusted to our preferences and needs with seamless precision and always responded to our emails and phone calls within 30 minutes or less. Whether setting up appointments, calling us back and or investigating a question, John always did everything he said he would do and did it immediately.

But what I think I appreciated most about John was his calm, ever-pleasant demeanor from beginning to end. At every encounter, he was cheerful and warm and always every conversation, written or verbal, with an upbeat, personal question that tended to make us feel relaxed and connected.

John is simply a wonderful, sweet person and a professional, who's exceptional at what he does. I will send anyone needing a real estate agent his way any chance I get.

I have worked with many Realtors throughout my life, and John Coake has been the best experience thus far. He is professional, gives his honest opinion when asked, was incredibly patient with us, always had a smile on his face and was willing to go out of his way to accommodate all our needs. He also went the extra mile giving us numbers and comparisons on all the different properties we were interested in, and made sure we got the best out of our investment. I would work with John again in a heartbeat! Highly, highly recommend him.

John is a truly awesome Realtor and person. He presented us with many options and with each one we knew we were getting closer and closer to the option that felt right. Once we found our new home, John was with us every step of the way. We've now been living in our new home for close to two months and we couldn't be happier.

John helped us find our house and was simply amazing from start to finish. We were lucky to have him by our side, and I would recommend him a million times!

I was contacted by John after viewing listings on the company's website. I was very impressed by how detailed and professional the site was. There were even videos of the neighborhoods. Being new to Austin - this was very helpful. John is a consummate professional in every way. He was always upbeat and ready to show me properties and prepared detailed analysis of properties. I ultimately decided to return to New Mexico where I can afford the type of home that is out of my price range in Austin. I have no reservations about referring John Coake to anyone who is looking for a responsive, knowledgeable and client service oriented Realtor.

I worked with John Coake. John is extremely diligent, I was very impressed with his ability to get me everything I needed. There were many delays and issues with the build of my new place and John was there every step of the way. I will be recommending John to everyone that needs a realtor.

Seth L., Yelp Review

As a recent married couple relocating from the Midwest, we needed help getting familiar with the area as well as finding a home. John was extremely patient with us in the house hunting process and helped us get comfortable with each of the areas that we explored. He listened to the things that we liked about homes and responded with great ideas about options for us to consider. He was very helpful in negotiating our final offer and we are very pleased with our new home. We truly enjoyed our experience of working with John and highly recommend him to a prospective home buyer.

John is hands down the BEST broker I have ever worked with. Not only did he help me buy this unit, but sell it as well. He also helped my partner and I sell our other house, and negotiated an executive rental. His ability to juggle multiple personalities, business issues, legal issues, and still have a good sense of humor and work ethic are a 12 of out 10! If you get the chance to work with John do it. I have used brokers in New York City, Cold Spring, New York, San Francisco, and Portland Oregon, and I wish John had been my broker on all those transactions.

M. Ellis

John Coake helps his clients through the home buying/selling experience gracefully by listening, offering suggestions and acting in the best interest for his clients. He reads the fine print and makes his clients his first priority. I've recommended him several times and my friends and family agree, John Coake knows Real Estate.

K. Hills

John did a splendid job of selling my home for me. I deeply appreciated his excellent advice and all his help in preparing the house for market. Everything was handled with great professionalism and skill. The property was sold within a week for more than my asking price and the entire transaction closed in less than 30 days. Seller and Buyer were both very happy. It doesn't get any better than that!

Eleanor Bode

I have never experienced a real estate professional with so much data and insight into the market, you certainly blew me away with all your research...

B. Schultz

I was exceptionally picky in what I was after, and John stayed with me every step of the way. I was also a first-time home buyer, and John was a perfect mentor, coach and sounding board. I can’t say enough great things about John, and I wouldn’t think twice about recommending his services to anyone, anytime.

Steve K.

John is very helpful and professional. He is patient and makes the entire process of buying or selling a home successful based on what the client’s desires are. I would (and have) recommend John to anyone.

T. Campbell

John helped me sell 2 properties and buy 2 properties to date. What I like about him is that he is very patient with our questions, is super responsive during the whole process, including those unexpected crisis times when one has to get funds in the bank within an hour. He has a lot of experience with the whole buying and selling process and I have certainly benefitted from this over the years.
