Testimonials

“John Harney is a realtor of distinction. He is an experienced professional who goes far beyond the business of real estate to the heart of finding a home. He always has a ready smile and an ease of manner that is encouraging to the client, and it dispels the tension of this complicated business. We came to John with the difficult task of selling our poorly situated house and relocating us to another house in the same town. We didn’t have much hope of this happening smoothly, but John was always reassuring. In three months he had done both. On the same day we closed on the sale of our house and the purchase of another. Through it all John was positive and hopeful, a factor that we came to appreciate through each step of the twin deals. We highly recommend John Harney and his dedicated associates. Other colleagues in the real estate business that we talked with also had great respect for him. In short he is a qualified, experienced realtor who is most of all genuine.” “Working with John Harney was a pleasure because he is skillful, experienced, and very gracious. He knows everyone needed to do the necessary inspections and the rules of the game so everything works smoothly. John helped us throughout the process of selling my mother's home & land in ways that were above and beyond our expectations and sold our family home at a good price in a difficult market. In business today many people are out for themselves; John Harney totally working for you.”
