“John is professional, responsive, knowledgeable, and patient. We looked at homes and condos for quite some time, not certain if we were going to live in the property full-time or rent it to others as well. John showed us a variety of properties to suit either goal. He helped us negotiate the purchase, inspections, and closing. If we decide to purchase another property for our primary residence, we will want to work with John again. He is always the agent we recommend to other people!”

“Very professional, courteous and expert. Not high pressure. Makes you feel like a friend.”

“I contacted John early on when we were just considering selling our property. John did a lot of research, and provided guidance helping us understand the market and the property’s potential. When we were ready, we contacted John again about 6 months later. He worked with us to create a marketing strategy, and help set a price. We sold our property 2 days after we put up the listing. I highly recommend him!”

There are not enough stars to rate this realtor. Purchased my home with John, and two more properties. Anyone that works with John as both a buyer or seller will find that he is responsive, intelligent and gets the job done.

“Always was positive and helpful at all times. Listened to us and showed us properties that we would be interested in after the initial interview. Knew area well and explained advantages and disadvantages of each area. Very helpful during final negotiations and gave wish guidance and advice. Would highly recommend him to any one.”

“John stood by me for over two years until I found the condo of my dreams. He was very patient, never pushy and just kept
looking for the right fit. He was also instrumental in assisting me in purchasing this condo from out of town. He kept on top of every detail and stood in for me when I was unable to be there. He’s the best!”

“John is business savvy with a touch of island grace. He helped me and my family purchase property that had many challenging “hiccups”. John also helped my brother and I sell our Moms property after she passed away. His sensitivity, keen sense of the market, and respect of our wishes was met with support and genuine kindness. Thank you, John.”

“John has sold properties twice for me and helped me purchase two times. What can I say, he’s super. He’s detailed, organized, cares about his clients, and most of all, just so nice to work with.”

“We met John some two years ago by chance when looking for a potential house in Anna Maria Island. Immediately during the first meeting we felt two things about John: his highly professional and knowledgeable approach to the reality business and in the same time we could feel his personal involvement to us as potential clients. Indeed John wants not only sale a house but he also wants to be sure that your new home choice will completely fit with your ideas. He will describe aspects of the potential business in all details and always corresponding with the true status of a proposing house.

But John’s care of clients go far behind his reality obligations. We, as foreigners, had a lot of problems to understand the mechanism of various obligations during the buying process and even after the sale was completed. John was always with us to help and to explain whatever was needed. We simply cannot imagine somebody else to deal with during the reality business. We highly recommend John. And believe us: if you will meet John you will never need to search for somebody else.”

“John van Zandt is a very personable and reliable agent. We covered every property til I finally made a choice. His thoughtfulness, patience and expertise in this field made it easier to pick a property and have a smooth final transaction. I recommend him for any of my future purchases.”

“John was prompt to respond to my request to list my home. Arriving thoroughly prepared with necessary paperwork and set to work to establish a professional relationship. Step by step he led my through a miriad of questions expaining any not understood. I left to return to Michigan leaving the sale in John’s capable hands. A couple of weeks later he had a sale for me. He arranged the sale long distance. I recommend John Van Zandt as a highly qualified real estate agent.”

“Highest recommendation. John has assisted me with a sale and a short sale as well as direction on investment properties. I have always had the sense that he had my best interests guiding his decisions. John proves the adage that by doing your job well, the money will follow.”

“John Van Zandt was chosen by my sons and I after interviewing three local realtors in the area. He exceeded our expectations as a excellent professional. Our home had 3 owners, all out of town and the buyer also from out of town. He was able to pull this off with skill and in some cases, good humor and the house sold quickly. John knows how to get things done.”

“We sold our home of 30 years with John. It was a very emotional time for us and John was so in tune to our emotions and did his very best to make it as pleasant and easy as he possibly could. I would recommend him a thousand times over! Thanks John for everything!”

“My Husband and I have bought and sold several properties with John Van Zandt. He is absolutely committed to doing the very best for his clients. His professional ethics and his integrity have made us so very comfortable in our dealings with him and we have recommended many friends and all have the same opinion as my husband and I. He is the very best agent we have ever encountered and goes the many extra steps to make sure his client gets the very best service.”

“John is a professional. I am working on my third transaction with John and he has handled each one perfectly. If you want someone who gets it done, call John.”

“We have known John for more than 20 years. He recently sold our house, and helped us find a new one in the right neighborhood at the right price. We have appreciated John’s friendship and his advice in buying and selling real estate. He is exceptionally professional and tireless in finding the right property for you.”

“I have purchased and sold real estate with John Van Vandt. I found him to be very easy to work with and he was very knowledgeable about local market.

When purchasing my property through John, there was definitely no sales pressure, and he allowed me to find the property that suited my needs and budget – on my timeframe.

When selling my condo, he helped my find the best potential buyer, neogiated a fair sales price and allowed me to close quickly.

Not only is John a great sales agent, he is a great person and I would highly recommend John”

“John is AWESOME! I have purchased three properties with him. He knows his trade. He knows his product, and he knows his clients. Each sale was different…one a 1031 cash deal, one with traditional financing, and the last a “short sale” dealing with bank bureaucracy. He handled every transaction with persistence, patience, and professionalism. I think we looked at 100 properties over the years together, and each time he was simply a joy to work with. I offer my highest recommendations for John.”

“Our residential home and commercial office space were purchased through John van Zandt on Anna Maria Island. Not only did he bring to the table a deep knowledge of the island, he helped us in every aspect of the purchase from finding the exact properties of interest, to negotiating the details for the purchase. Our heighest recomendation is given to John.”
