John Kostrey is a fantastic realtor and made our first home buying experience in Los Angeles an extremely smooth process. John always had our best interests at heart, we never felt pressured into making an offering, or rushing to buy a place. If it did not meet our needs, or he felt it was too expensive for the neighborhood, he was the first to remind us what we were looking for. The real estate market in Northeast Los Angeles, where we were predominantly looking, has been heating up over the last couple years. We put in a number of offers that we were outbid on, but John always kept things in perspective and never let us get down. We love the Eagle Rock home we ended up in, and can’t imagine having undergone the process without John’s help.
