Ask John MacGilvary


John helped us on buying and selling our home. His extensive knowledge and strategy have made both transactions successfully through this crazy market.

Wow, I now tell my friends there are real estate agents and then there are those from Verani. This is the third time I've used Verani to sell property, the first time using John. Each time Verani put the other agents I had dealt with to shame. The first time I switched agents to sell a piece of land. I suggest lowering the price and the Verani agent suggested raising the price and they sold it at the higher price quickly. This time I felt John worked hard for me during the whole process, working as the go between me and the other agent all during the sale process, always available for my questions and advocating on my behalf on things I had no idea I could ask for, even after the sale was complete, John made sure everything was final and even offered to come with his truck to move a few items that were not carted off before closing as promised. I will us no other agency ever.

John did an excellent job of keeping us calm and focused in a crazy market. He provided spot-on advice every step of the way. There are so many 'moving parts' in this process that there's no way we could have done this without his guidance and attention to detail. The result speaks for itself! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy and/or sell their home.

- Adam H

With the assistance of John and Shelly and Berkshire Hathawy over this past year, our family gets to enjoy our property of unlimited potential. We are so thankful for their guidance and patience in the process which paid off richly in the end. Thank you so much! The Hicks family

Got to know John MacGilvary from a friend who he helped sell their home in our neighborhood. I went to John and asked him to help us find a New Home in NH due to his reputation of Honesty, Trust and Knowledge of the real-estate industry in NH. Throughout the time frame in looking for a New Home for us we got to know John and he has became a close friend of ours through the process. I could not recommend a better realtor for the NH Market than John and he brings a lot of his character to the process which I loved throughout the hunt for the New Home. Not to be outdone we asked John to sell our current home and he did it with the quickness and efficiency that we expected and we got exactly what we needed in the price for our purchase of our new home. Thank You John for all your time and effort and friendship!

- Sanford W

John was wonderful in helping me find my new home and selling my old home after my husband passed away. He was very thoughtful and accommodating of any and all situations with selling my old house and assisting with trying to get my new home built faster ! Wonderful Job !

- Rebecca C

John was always there to answer any questions I had . His patience was great and he was understanding my needs.

- Judith B

When it came to answering questions that I had he made me feel at ease and he was very knowledgeable about things that I needed to know about the area to help me make my decision to purchase a particular home or not. And he didn’t push you into something that he thought that you wouldn’t want.

- Edward K

John was fantastic to deal with. He is very friendly, knowledgeable about not only the real estate market, but also the estimated costs to make repairs to assist in analyzing a potential purchase. He offers suggestions to help work through any sticking points, but isn't pushy if those are sticking points one can't get over. John was very flexible (we threw in a 4th showing on a day when we were scheduled for 3 already), and very responsive. I would definitely recommend John to anyone looking for an agent and would definitely utilize his services again should the need arise.

- Christine K

On behalf of my family, we would like to thank you for all your efforts in finding us our perfect home. I meet and deal with professional people on a daily basis and I must say that even though the sellers of our house were not the easiest people to deal with, you handled yourself very professionally and treated everyone with the utmost respect. We had heard too many real estate horror stories and were not looking forward to that aspect of buying a home, but by having you there to do all of the leg work, paperwork, negotiating, and coordinating for us, this experience was wonderful and satisfying. Knowing our new home is not our last, we look forward to working with you again in the not so distant future. Kindest Regards.

- Dr. Morganthal & Family
