I don’t think there are enough superlatives that could be written when it comes to trying to explain how good John Solaegui is as both an incredibly skilled San Francisco realtor and as a person.
Thanks to John, my family and I have all gotten houses that we love and hope to be in for a long time. I really don’t think it is possible that there is a better agent out there.
John made the whole process a breeze and he was always available basically 24/7, and incredibly quick to reply to any questions whenever we needed him. After all he’s done for us, I seriously consider him “part of the family” by this point.
I would also just like to say that I feel so fortunate to have met John. Having John as your agent in San Francisco feels a bit like “cheating”. It’s like having Warren Buffett as your personal financial advisor or Michael Jordan on your pick-up basketball team. John knows everything and everyone in the San Francisco real estate market. When you are working with John, you often find about houses going on the market before they even get listed on MLS. And because he is so friendly with everyone and so highly respected by everyone in the market, other agents will often do him favors that helps you as a client.
For example, when John would let us know about houses coming on the market that were not yet on MLS, we would often ask when we could tour the house, and John would call up the other agent and arrange for a private tour quickly. And the other agent would often say something along the lines of “I’m not supposed to show this house until after the first Open House, but since its John, I made an exception. Just don’t tell anyone!”
In summary, not only would I never consider using any other agent besides John in any San Francisco real estate transaction, but I would very strongly recommend all friends and associates to do the same, and I would quite frankly tell them that if they were to use another agent besides John Solaegui , they would be making a huge mistake!
I just wanted to formally thank you for everything. As a typical guy unfortunately, it’s difficult for me to say these things in person, but at least I can write it anyway … And not just on behalf of myself, but also my baby sister and future niece or nephew, and my mom and dad. All of us have gotten houses that we love and hope to be in for a long time, and you have been absolutely indispensable to all of this. I can’t really imagine there could be any agent better than you anywhere! I consider you “part of the family” by this point, so don’t hesitate to contact me anytime if I can be of help in any way. Seriously, if your car breaks down in the middle of the night or something (you can see I’ll probably be up anyway , just call me and I’ll be right over (ok, maybe not if you’re in Fresno, but anywhere in the Bay Area anyway
As a first time homebuyer, I really appreciated your sincerity and patience. Not only did you walk me through every step of the process, but you did it in such a way that helped truly understand what I was getting myself into. Your explanations were never rushed and were always very thorough.
In addition, I would like to mention that your constant availability was great for me. Your long hours from early in the morning until late at night must be very tiring, but being able to reach you was very beneficial. Between phone calls, texts, and emails, I had the utmost confidence that we were always on the same page and that we were never a bottleneck to moving the process forward. I really liked that.
John (aka Wonder Agent),
We are so grateful to you for finding us the home that we will raise our daughters in. Your council was spot on throughout, and the negotiations left us feeling both elated and that all was fair and as it should be. Thank you endlessly.
And cheers to Gini for sending us your way and coaching us through our first foray into the Bay Area real estate market. Thank you too!
Having purchased and sold my own properties without the assistance of real estate professionals, I know firsthand the feeling of successfully completing transactions on my own terms. Recently, I have found that the legal and regulatory requirements for real estate transactions have become increasingly complex and too difficult to navigate by myself.
For my latest property sale, I went straight to John for help. I didn’t even consider the need to interview other agents because John was my one and only choice. As a member of John’s extensive online community, I have followed John’s market commentary for years.
As one can imagine, every real estate transaction has its own unique issues. For me, I can say without exception, John exceeded my expectations at every twist and turn during the marketing and contract process. I was very pleased when my home quickly sold to a couple of very happy buyers.
Here is what I received when I engaged John to be my agent:
John has done a great job of guiding my property sale through a challenging economic environment. I love working with John because he is so smart and yet so gracious.
In summary, would I recommend John to my friends and family? Would I use John again on my next real estate transaction? Yes, in a heartbeat!
We are sorry and embarrassed that it’s taken us so long to write, but we want you to know how grateful to you we are for helping us find and get settled into our new home. Thank you, thank you! From taking us around to view properties to navigating the complex home-buying process to helping us with plumbing issues, it was so reassuring to have you as our guide. And, as recent email exchanges have shown, we are still turning to your for advice! A million thanks for being so diligent and responsive. And a million more for smiling through it all…We’ve settled into our home and are in the process of turning the 2nd bedroom into a nursery. The baby is due in just under 2 months, so we need to roll up our sleeves! In the year that we’ve been here, we’ve already created many wonderful memories…we know there are many more in store for us. And again, THANK YOU for going WAY above and beyond!

“It has been over a month since we signed our final documents and I just wanted to take a moment to write you a note regarding my recent 1031 Property Exchange transaction. As you know, this was a highly stressful transaction because it involved a limited amount of time, it was necessitated because of a divorce, the San Francisco real estate market was ridiculously active and most stressful of all, I began the process not knowing what I wanted and the amount of money we had to work with kept changing! I would describe myself as the client from hell! You, John, however, were the angel from heaven who stepped into my life when I was really at my lowest point and worked tirelessly to find out what I wanted, how much I could afford and stood by week after week to make sure I found a property that would provide me with monthly income and that I closed on time so I did not get capital gains tax.
