John Seitz helped us navigate through a very complex real estate transaction. In the midst of the COVID pandemic, John was a reliable stabilizing presence as we searched for the perfect home to replace the Uptown house we decided to sell. Both an optimist and a pragmatist, John could translate our wishes to other agents and to contractors, with his extensive background as a general contractor, finding us a home that was mostly in good condition but in need of some TLC. He provided excellent advice in vetting contractors and in closing the gap between the seller's expectations and our capacity to compromise. John's passion for his work is genuine, and he is always a joy to work with. Even after we put him through the wringer! His patience and professionalism can't be overstated. And it didn't end at contract. He's always available to validate questions we've had through the renovation process, and to always lend a hand whenever he needs to. John is a consummate real estate agent, but also someone I consider a real friend. Thanks, John!
This is the fifth transaction with John, with this the second house sight unseen. The reasons we continue to use the Francher Perrin Group is their super professional approach to the industry while still providing personalized service. If the need arises, we'll definitely be using John Seitz & the FPG again.
John was a complete professional from start to finish. He was always available and very supportive. He explained issues very well. Cannot recommend him highly enough!
John was our agent when we bought our house and again when the time came to sell. Both times he was outstanding. He offered great advice and was always easy to communicate with. If you're looking for a realtor in the New Orleans area you won't find anyone better!
In 2015, we were introduced to John via a mutual friend. We were living in Florida at the time, and wanted to get our 'foot in the door' in New Orleans as we had planned a future move. Needless to say, we were very impressed with John as he navigated our sight unseen purchase of our Westbank property. Two years later we made the move to New Orleans, and once again John helped us find a beautiful property within our price range, our wants and don't wants, and everything that goes into a home purchase. With the home we purchased being new construction, John was able to use his prior contracting experience in helping to resolve anomalies found at inspection. Again, another stellar transaction. Our last transaction was the sale of the same property as we transitioned to another state. John was instrumental in guiding us through the pre-sale and making sure the house was ready to be sold, both aesthetically and mechanically. With his expertise, we received an offer within two weeks, with all the post acceptance of the offer stipulations handled efficiently and professionally. We are super appreciative of all the hard work John and the Francher Perrin Group put in with our various transactions. At the end of the day, we consider John not only our realtor, but more importantly, our friend.
I bought and sold my house using John. Both experiences where absolutely painless. John spent multiple days and hours with me even though my buying budget was low for the market times. After 6 months and multiple houses we finally found the house for less than 1 mile from the french quarter and UNDER my budget. His knowledge as a former contractor was priceless in the entire process. Almost eight years later, John helped me sell the same house. He walked me through the entire process and my house was on the market less than 3 days... And that was only because we had so many offers that I needed 3 days to look over all of them. I have recommended John to multiple friends and acquaintances over my many years in New Orleans and every single one of them has been absolutely thrilled with him. Most having used him MULTIPLE times also over the years. John is the best of the best. You're lucky to get him be it a 100k budget or a 5 million dollar budget. He will treat you the same.
I consulted a few realtors before choosing one to list a 4Plex in my dad's estate. I had to handle everything from out of state so I needed someone that I could trust to oversee things. Right away, John impressed me with his professionalism and thoroughness. So glad I chose him to assist us in selling this property as he was able to fill in the gaps of my inexperience with his sound knowledge and advice in the real estate market. This enabled us to get an immediate sale above asking price and eliminated so much stress for me knowing that he was always on top of everything. My family couldn't be more pleased with his service and the turnout of this transaction.
John, you were a pleasure to work with. To say you were thorough, competent, ethical, friendly and professional is only half of the story. You going the extra step to find out about the prior renovation contractor and obtaining construction drawings is truly the KEY event that made this purchase happen. And it doesn't stop there. You followed through AFTER the sale and your wise advice on how to deal with the HOA and management company literally saved us thousands of dollars. I would RECOMMEND YOU without hesitation to anyone.
I have had the pleasure of working with John on two occasions buying homes in New Orleans and if we ever sell them, it will be with him. He is extremely helpful and very easy to work with. Even though our price point was low he gave us his full attention and made us feel valued and important. We started out looking for a realtor and found a friend. We couldn't be happier!
John is a 5 star realtor for sure! My husband and I just purchased our first out of state rental and John made the experience so stress free! Not only were we able to get nearly everything done in one long weekend trip to the city but everything else was easily coordinated via phone or email. Everyone he has recommended for title, inspections, repairs, etc. are great as well! I'm a realtor/property manager in California and know how hard it is to find good, reliable people you can trust to work on your property. Finding John was nothing short of a miracle. We will definitely be using John in the future and would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase in and around New Orleans.
