    Focused. Dedicated. Collaborative. Responsive. John Flaniken sets a high bar for the professionalism one should expect when pursuing homeownership, property sales or investment properties.

    John was my "co-pilot" when navigating the complexities of homeownership. He was always available to explain processes (even while I was traveling out of state or country and needed him to be flexible with my time zones), provided listings that matched my requirements, offered suitable options on a variety of topics, and maintained a pleasant demeanor throughout the engagement.

    I unequivocally recommend John and his team to my friends and associates in the Central Coast who are seeking a seasoned and trustworthy realtor.

    Couldn't ask more from a Realtor, John is a real pro. He is not in it for the one sale; he's in it for the long haul. My 5th experience with John as my Realtor, every sale has been an earthshaking great deal. When he says Knowledge, INTEGRITY (HUGE) and Experience it rings true in every aspect. Some Realtors would sell you anything. John makes sure it’s a good fit for you, not just money in his pocket. John not only has made me a huge amount of money, he's steered me away from potential pitfalls which shows me he does business like I do, and he cares about his clients… return business is everything. Best Realtor in Santa Cruz, bar none!

    During the last 3 months John helped us purchase two properties in Santa Cruz. His responsiveness among all of his other positive qualities (knowledge, expertise, integrity, and patience) is what impresses us and helps the most. We both have busy schedules, often traveling and working from different time zones. John makes it very easy for us by always getting back within hours on any question we may have so the process of fact finding, bidding, negotiating and purchasing is a piece of cake. John is also valuable with his pool of resources - we enjoyed working with the title company, contractor, & architect he introduced us too. It has been a great pleasure working with John. We have and would continue to highly recommend him without reservations.

    There is no way John could have improved his service. He and his Team were fantastic and I am not sure we could have sold our home without him. His professionalism was unbelievable. His problem solving was superb. He gave us many options and had or found answers to every question I had. He was never pushy but told us his opinions. When we decided to sell "as-is" instead of renovating the home as he suggested, he worked his butt off to find an investor. I work with a lot of real estate professionals in my business and he performed at the top of my list (which is considerable).
