Client Reviews

“John has been our Realtor for both the purchase , and sale of two homes in Marin County. John helped me, and my siblings, during a very challenging time. He guided us and gave us superior advise for listing our mothers home. With his broad depth of experience in the Real Estate industry, he positioned us to maximize the sale price of our family home. I cannot say enough about what a genuinely kind, and thoughtful man John is. Any seller or buyer, could not do any better than having John Brannan on their team, he is a wonderful man, and every day I am thankful that he came into our lives.”    Sara Whisler and the Whisler/Tillotson FamilyMost recent listing sold  – 130 El Condor Ct, San Rafael, CA 94903

John Brannan has been a great support to me and my family over the past few years. He assisted in renting out our family home and managing the property after our mother died. When we ultimately decided to sell this home, he was the natural choice for us to list with. John has been terrific with this process. He was able to negotiate some very stressful situations with calm and consistency. His vast experience is reflected in his ability to navigate all the nuances that accompany selling one’s home. We appreciate all that he has done to make the sale of our home successful and highly recommend his services .

Working with John Brannan to find our new home was such a pleasure. He was recommended to us by a friend and we were not disappointed. John was patient, and honestly I lost track of how many homes we looked at while he worked with us. As we viewed various possibilities, John not only agreed with many of our concerns or possible problems we sometimes found, he even came up with his own concerns! Never once did we feel pushed into something that just wouldn’t work for us. John is professional, follows through quickly with what he says he will do, and most of all related to us like a good friend. A refreshing combination in a world full of hype and hard selling. We highly recommend John and his team.

John is the best realtor I have ever met! He helped my fiance and I purchase our first home in Marin. He’s very knowledgeable of Marin-Sonoma. He’s great with communication whether email, text, calls. He was very flexible and always had the buyers best interest in mind. After purchasing our home we came to John for a professional opinion about flooring and he gladly gave us a pros/cons list of the flooring options we had chosen. He is hands-down the best realtor in Marin-Sonoma! I would recommend him and The Brannan Realty Group to anyone in the area! – Robyn Nguyen

John, working with you has been a great experience, and I really appreciate all the time and effort you put into helping me find and purchase my rental properties in Santa Rosa. You obviously know quite a bit about the area, yet you never got impatient with me as I took my time learning, and figured out what I wanted to buy.

I never felt pressure from you, you let me proceed at my own pace. You have a real “attitude of service”, and it made the long process towards the final purchase a very rewarding one.

Also, I really appreciate your patience, and spirit of adventure, as we entered into this strange and frustrating negotiation process with this agency handling the sale for the bank, apparently in India. I think many agents might have given up, tried to steer me to another property with easier contacts, but again you let me direct the process, and were there to help out any way you could. And the level of customer service you offered even after the sale was definitely above and beyond!

If I find myself wanting to buy more property around this area, I will DEFINITELY work with you again, and will recommend you highly to anyone who asks.

John and his team were incredible to work with! Not only did they take the time to answer any and all questions we had, but they made the entire process a more pleasurable one. Whether we were looking at one home or fifty homes, it didn’t matter.

They weren’t satisfied until we were satisfied. Because of them we are now in a house we can call a home and are looking forward to starting our family in. We would, and have, recommend John and his team to our friends and family. Thanks for everything. We truly couldn’t have done it without you!

John was instrumental in walking us through the purchase of a foreclosed property. It was an unusual sale, and John was knowledgeable and helpful every step of the way. At the same time, he listed our condo for sale. It was a difficult market for selling a home, but with John’s help, we got the best possible price for it. John impressed us with his knowledge of the market, his experience, the way he advertised our property, and how responsive he was to us. Most importantly, he is a man of integrity.
As we looked at homes, John never pressured us because he cared about our satisfaction, not a quick sale. We have recommended him to two people, both of whom purchased a home with his help and were very satisfied as well.
