“John did EVERYTHING that was needed to both prepare our home to show and to sell. He gave good counsel after the first day or two of showing and regarding the various offers. His feedback and response to questions was helpful, understandable, and immediate. He was extremely attentive. We can't say enough positive about him. A real gentleman, a man of integrity, and good at what he does, in our instance, selling our house.”
Bennett & Heidi Wethered, Bristow, Virginia (Seller)
“John came highly recommended by a coworker of mine while living in South Korea. Moving to the DC area for the first time was stressful, but John made finding a place to live easy. John was everything my friend described: detailed, punctual, thorough, and patient. John was all this and more. John provided a Great experience and I look forward to referring John to anyone I know coming to the area in the future.”
Michael - Haymarket, VA. (Buyer)
“I used John before and was so overly pleased that when it came time to sell another house there was never a consideration that I would use anybody else. I only made one phone call and that was to John Montemayor! I couldn't envision a better agent. Thorough, proactive, very communicative, and a true gentleman. I have bought and sold 5 houses in my life, and John is the best agent I have ever worked with...by a mile!”
Aaron Sasson, Lorton VA (Seller)

“Having dealt with John in the past, we knew how good he was at his job and went back to him with NO hesitation. He is great at his job, he puts his clients first and takes great pleasure in getting them what they want.
He keeps you up to date on everything that is going on, he manages expectations and answers questions quickly and completely. We love working with John!
He honestly does all the above at the highest level. I wish all my business colleagues were as thorough and communicated as well as John does. He leaves no stone unturned and makes great recommendations.
We will conduct all of our Virginia real estate purchases with John…period. Our family and friends as well. Let me be perfectly clear, we will not work with anyone else (unless John retires). ”
Jeff Mosher; Occoquan, VA (Buyer)
“John helped us buy our first home, then, six years later he helped us sell that home and buy a larger home for our growing family. Thank you John for your patience in our long home search process, for educating us, for taking calls whenever we had a question, even when it wasn't directly related to your job description, and so much more. We truly appreciate how you streamlined what could be a very stressful experience. We knew we had someone on our side the whole time, we were in very good hands.”
Rob, Dumfries VA (Seller)
“John was thorough, very detail oriented, and quick to respond to our questions. He made selling our house very easy and stress free. The best decision we made was hiring John to be our agent. ”
The Edwards Family, Woodbridge VA (Seller)
“This was our third transaction with John Montemayor and we couldn’t be happier with the level of service and professionalism John brings to every transaction and every Interaction. John always takes the time to fully explain the process and any expectations regarding the specific transaction at hand. One thing I really appreciate is John’s attention to detail and consistent follow ups (whether there are updates or not). This in particular is a quality I greatly value as I am an out of state client. Additionally, I find great value in the reports, comps, market stat evaluations and historical trends which John organizes at the beginning of each transaction. It seems John has a good system in place which allows for his clients to feel confident in and trust the process. Furthermore, John goes out of his way to prepare his own comps presentation package for the appraiser to help aid in the most accurate appraisal possible. In one of our past sales transactions, John took the time to thoughtfully advise and recommend different considerations during the home inspection negotiation. We were fully prepared to pay for a new roof for the purchaser, but John guided us through the logic of offering a closing credit equal to half the price of a new roof. This ultimately saved us real money and is only one small example of how John always acts with his client’s best interest in mind. John’s pragmatic, logical and ethical approach to real estate transactions is what keeps us coming back time after time. Last but certainly not least, aside from all of this, John is also a genuinely nice guy and he’s a pleasure to work with. ”
Dave & Alexa, Out of State Clients (Seller)
“We originally wanted to put our house on the market in feb 2020, but thought there would be fewer people interested in buying during the pandemic. So we took a tenant instead up to January 2022 and hoped we would still be in a sellers market.
John easily restarted our campaign and guided us through some physical improvements to the house and sales trends. After the improvements and our open house in Jan 2022, we had a satisfactory offer in one day.
Thanks to John patiently standing by and continued communication for more than a year, we sold our home faster and with a better outcome than we would have had in 2020. ”
Marvin baker Fort Bragg, Nc (Seller)

“It was an absolute pleasure to work with John. I could not have imagined a better experience selling my property.
John was one of the most pleasant men I have ever met.”
Josh Vice, Woodstock (Seller)
“John Montemayor came highly recommended to me and I was pleased with him and his service from the very beginning. He met all the expectations we had based on his high praise. He was very respectful and professional. He was accessible, and he was prompt in his communications, as well as organized in guiding me through the process. He was helpful answering questions about finances, homes, and communities. I would highly recommend John to others!
John helped me navigate conversations with lenders and lawyers, home inspectors and insurance agents, from beginning to end. He offered recommendations for every service needed. I usually trusted his recommendations. Once or twice I shopped around for services but couldn't find anything better than what he had recommended.
John's recommendations proved to be helpful not only in finding the best service providers, but also in helping me secure my home and save money on it. He recommended a particular lender, and that lender had high credibility with the selling realtor, which contributed to my successful offer on the property. John provided helpful guidance as I determined my offer amount and he helped me understand and utilize the escalation clause, which helped save me money.
Most of our open houses and tours were virtual, so John's guidance was particularly helpful. A few houses looked good in the pictures, but John was able to point out the deficiencies noticeable in person, to help us avoid homes that would not be a good fit for us given our needs and wants, and ultimately help us find our new home. John was incredible in his availability, prompt replies, knowledge and guidance, and his willingness to be a service to me and my family and help us find the right home for us. We are grateful to God for him!”
Alex, Montclair (Buyer)

Don Sampson, Manassas (Seller)
“Mr. Montemayor’s knowledge of the local/national market and his ability to convey that knowledge to myself far exceeded any expectations I had.
Century 21 Redwood Realty did an excellent job with my home buying process. They were consistently available, friendly and proficient.
Mr. Montemayor was extremely professional. He built an environment where my family and I felt taken care of while being able to ask any questions. He answered his phone and email all hours of the day and night. He didn’t hesitate on any occasion to view a house, contact a listing agent or generally do anything we asked.
Century 21 Redwood and more specifically Mr. Montemayor exceeded expectations throughout the process of my home purchase.
This is my second home purchase. The difference between quality of treatment and services rendered between Mr. Montemayor and my previous agent were stark. Mr. Montemayor was fantastic and a true agent on the side of the buyer (us).”
Daniel Phillips, Alexandria VA (Buyer)

Patrick Graham manassas va (Seller)
“Working with John Montemayor was a pleasure, as the buying process was complicated. He worked diligently to help us skillfully negotiate the price we wanted. During a very busy buying season, he also helped keep the process on track and close on time when we kept hearing of other buyers experiencing delays. If you want someone who pays attention to the details, then you need John Montemayor! Through his hard work, we were able to not only buy what we wanted at the price we wanted, but do it in a timely fashion!”

“John was a true professional in every aspect of the sale and I would highly recommend him.”
Steve Wade, Manassas (Seller)
“There are probably lots of solid brokers out there. John M is in a class by himself--peerless integrity, professionalism, knowledge, to name just a few important qualities. I'd have been nuts to select someone else.
John nailed every aspect of the sale from start to finish. Clear communication at the beginning laid out clear expectations and helped us understand the process. Constant communication kept us informed at every stage--he sent so many updates it was hard to keep up with them all! Could not have asked for a more competent, caring, and knowledgeable professional!
By any measure, John exceeds all expectations in all areas: Polite, Understanding, Friendly, Patient, Knowledgeable, Helpful, Trustworthy, Professional, Timely communications, Clear communications, Accessible, Respectful, and most important, he's Approachable!! John stands head/shoulders above other brokers in all areas!
Exceptional experience--the property sold lightening fast, thanks to his tireless efforts!”
