Selling a house can be a difficult and stressful ordeal if there is not someone who you can rely on and trust to help see the process through from start to finish. I was suprized and very pleased that the whole process from listing date to the sale and funding took less than 60 days. There were a few routine issues that were dealt with quickly and professionally, usually within 24 hours or less. John stayed on top of the whole transaction, was informative and provided answers to all of my questions and concerns. He was always looking out for my best interests. I will definitely seek out John's advice and experience in buying and selling homes in the future.
I highly recommend John Skelton. I had previously worked with two ladies. I heard about him from an acquaintance, who was bugging me to meet with him. When I finally was fed up with the Realtors I worked with, I called him. He was incredibly friendly on the phone, and we met up at a local coffee stand. I felt comfortable with him, and he asked many questions so that he can find exactly what we were looking for.
Within a day or two, he had a list for me to pick over. At one point, we came to a home where he immediately noted some costly repairs that I had overlooked.
He wanted to ensure my time wasn't wasted. It took us about a month to find the right home, and when we did, he was on top of negotiations! Being a first time home buyer, I was fairly clueless, but he informed me to a point that I'm giving advice to our friends on how to go about buying a home.
He is excellent at keeping everyone on track and 'at the table'. I had a not so great loan officer, so our closing wasn't as efficient as it could have been, but he was excellent at asking the right questions to keep things going. I wouldn't recommend anyone else. He quite simply exceeded my expectations of a realtor. He cared. He didn't beat around the bush or try to sell to me as fast as he could. He wanted to make sure it was exactly what we wanted.
He respected our budget and reminded us when we would be going over or getting close. He had our best interests in mind and that is what anyone should look for in a realtor.
Led me through the hole process of buying a home.
Felt as if he was a brother making sure I did not make a wrong decision.
Ended up with a nice home with some equity.
Stand up guy.
John is very thorough and detail oriented, also very helpful and selfless. I would highly recommend John to anyone looking to buy or sell, he stays within the confines of your interests.

We are first time home owners. John Skelton was our Real Estate Broker. He helped us to understand that we were making an investment not just buying a home. When getting preapproved he worked very hard to keep things going to be approved for loan. He also found a mortgage company that worked for us. After being approved for loan, John got things going to buy our home. John was great in helping us to get our home. Thanks John.
