John Pinto helped me buy my first house. I had no experience in real estate. He exceeded his ethical obligations to help me get onto a good, solid house that I could afford. He really guided me NOT to become infatuated with superficial, cosmetic features, and to stay focused on fundamentals;l structural integrity, pipes, heating, electrical, life expectancy of roof, etc. Once, he brought a foundation specialist who determined the house would need extensive repairs that were not obvious to the previous inspector. (I did not buy that house.) His knowledge of the architectural history of San Jose was vast. His grasp of intricacies of funding and his network of resource people was comprehensive. He was patient; I was his client for about 14 months. His professionalism was above and beyond the call of duty and I have always been grateful for his help.
