"My wife and I contacted John over the internet, expressed our requirements, and were promptly served with a very appropriate assortment of properties to evaluate.."
Buying a home or condo is one of those major decisions in our lives that most of us don’t do often. It can be a real test of our judgement, financial sense, ability to plan, and skills at truth recognition. With some realtors, you can get a sense of mistrust that leaves you feeling quite alone in your decision-making process. Others just don’t seem to be able to understand your desires. Not so with John and Johanne Sabia. My wife and I contacted John over the internet, expressed our requirements, and were promptly served with a very appropriate assortment of properties to evaluate. Together, we whittled this list down to a manageable eight, and set up an appointment with John and Johanne to view them. Our tour with the Sabia’s was like visiting these places with long-standing trusted friends. They were exceptionally forthright, obviously knowledgeable about the market and their profession, patient, and energetic. We truly felt like we were working with a BUYER’S agent – not just someone trying to make a commission. After we had made our choice, John was beyond diligent in helping us jump through all of the hoops involved in buying real estate, such as negotiating a price, securing a mortgage, obtaining insurance, and meeting closing deadlines. At the close, John was right there through it all – an absolute first in our experience with realtors. We can easily say that John and Johanne Sabia are the most knowledgeable, professional, trustworthy, and friendly realtors we have ever encountered!

My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting and working with John to find our Fort Lauderdale home. We can't say enough about the positive experience we had. He even made it fun if you can believe it! John is honest, experienced, very knowledgeable about his business and professional in his dealings. He was there for us 100% all the way to the end and beyond. To this day we feel he is someone we can reach out to for help and information regarding real estate matters. We have and will continue to recommend him and his work to our friends and anyone else who wants to work with a terrific broker and all around good guy. Thank you.

"You were open and honest in every detail of the purchase."
Dear John, When I traveled to Fort Lauderdale in May 2015 to help my sister with getting her new condo ready, I had no plans on purchasing a unit for an "escape" from Jersey winters. It just so happened that 2 units in the same complex were listed and you gave me a tour. Long story short, I closed on my unit on July 23, 2015. I would like to thank you for your professionalism and determination in working with sellers that were quite difficult to deal with. You were open and honest in every detail of the purchase. Your knowledge and integrity were gratifying and yielded a successful sale. Thank you.

"I don't know if a more frantic time of year could have been selected for relocation, but this experience was an unqualified success, and you had an enormous influence on that outcome."
We are finally able to see over the tops of what has seemed to be an endless mountain range of boxes, and thought it would be a good time to pause and send you a note before resuming the quest to organize our new home.
Amidst the mayhem of relocation we have not forgotten what a pleasure it was working with you on the sale of our home. We were thoroughly impressed with your knowledge of the market as well as of the entire process of selling, bewildering to those of us outside the real estate industry. Just as important were your professionalism and continuous support. The advice and direction you provided from start to end was flawless. You no doubt extended these same qualities to the buyer assuring a win-win for all stakeholders. In fact, the buyer and I have established a very pleasant relationship via correspondence, exchanging items that were mixed up during the move.
I also plan to share with our relocation company how grateful we are for having had the opportunity to work with you. I don't know if a more frantic time of year could have been selected for relocation, but this experience was an unqualified success, and you had an enormous influence on that outcome.
Thank you again for an exceptional job and for all the wonderful and deeply appreciated support you provided. We wish you all the best and hope that we may stay in touch.

"His honesty is refreshing. He does not try to sell you on something just to get the deal closed. He patiently searches with you until you find your dream home."
One of the most stressful things that we have found in life has been the process of buying or selling property. No matter how simple it looks at the start, there are so many phases where things can turn upside down. Add to that, trying to buy real estate in Florida while you are in Pennsylvania.
That is something that we did last year. We are very excited to say that if you have had the same frayed nerves during real estate transactions, we have found the perfect solution in John Sabia. He is a dedicated, detail minded realtor, who is honest, hard working, and pleasant, no matter how difficult things get. He is reassuring until the moment he hands you the keys.
Through John's dedication and willingness to go the extra mile, we were able to buy a condominium in Florida completely online. We were familiar with the development we were buying in and familiar with the layouts. We had particular areas that we did or did not wish to buy. John very thoughtfully adjusted our search to show only the areas where we were interested. Once we found the place that we wanted to buy, he was kind enough to go there and take additional photos of closets and spaces that were not available online. He also recommended and arranged our mortgage company, insurance company, home inspection, and all that we needed for the process.
Even when John was out of the country, he always answered our e-mail immediately and reassured us of any concerns that we had. The entire process through John was easy and wonderful. (For us. He may have a few gray hairs as a result)!
The very first time that we set foot in the condo was the walk through on the day of the closing, and it was everything that John told us to expect and our closing was timely and pleasant. The ease of this process was mostly due to the fact that John Sabia really listens to what you want and matches you up as closely as possible. His honesty is refreshing. He does not try to sell you on something just to get the deal closed. He patiently searches with you until you find your dream home.
Hats off to John Sabia for such a wonderful experience, for listening, and for working so hard without complaints. May I suggest that if you are buying or selling property, take the burden off of your shoulders and give it to John. He handles it expertly! Thanks John Sabia... Keep up the good work!

"If you are looking for an honest real estate agent, call John Sabia!"
I met Mr. Sabia via the internet and he was extremely responsive in replying back to my request to visit a condo that was for sale in Ft. Lauderdale. He was courteous and informative and was honest in his feedback in putting in an offer for the unit. Due to his professionalism and knowledge of real estate in the Ft. Lauderdale area, we were able to obtain a successful agreement with the seller and close within 90 days. Since my purchase, he has assisted my brother with another successful sale in the same complex. If you are looking for an honest real estate agent, call John Sabia!

"Thanks so much for making an experience that could have been a total nightmare very manageable.. even down to cutting your vacation short to be with us at the closing."
John, While I was still in NY I found out that the condo I was renting for the past 5 years was not longer going to be available shortly after my return to FL. I found you on the internet when I went into an immediate panic of finding a place I could buy and be moved into in a short two month time frame. Sadly looking to buy a place was a whole new experience for me even though I am in my retirement years. Even before I was able to return to FL you contacted me through your website and took on the task of leading a neophite through the steep learning curve of buying a home. You helped me find a condo that fit my expectations, budget and time line and then guided me to great financing and helped with all the legal issues that needed to be covered to finalize the sale. Thanks so much for making an experience that could have been a total nightmare very manageable. (Even down to cutting your vacation short to be with us at the closing.) You certainly went that extra mile to make us comfortable. Very happy customer here! Thanks for everything you did to get me into my own condo.
