I met John when he was hosting an open house early in 2010. At the time we were living in Chicago but looking to move back to the Walnut Creek area after an absence of several years. Over the ensuing 19 months John answered our every query, set up numerous itineraries for us to visit properties, and looked under every rock to find us just the right property from Walnut Creek all the way to Pleasanton. He helped us zero in on a neighborhood we adore, and write offers on 5 different properties, including a couple of tricky bank sale properties. When other realtors might have given up on us, John never wavered. Always helpful, patient, thoughtful, and responsive, John eventually found the right property for us. The proof is in the pudding. Recently our house appraised 50K higher than what we paid for it only 16 months before. It's hard for me to imagine that anyone could have given us better advice, better service, or a better outcome than John Bennison did. If you are looking for a great realtor in Walnut Creek, I recommend that you give John a call.

In 2008, when John sold my home for me he could not have been more professional, without being intimidating. He was professional in manner, dress, and the way in which he conducted business. He was very cordial, and respectful of me, my needs, and all others involved in the transaction. He was honest and fair -- but definitely looked out for my best interests, without stepping on toes. He was the best in communication, always available for my questions, and very straight forward in business dealings. I was very impressed with the advertising my home received. We had multiple offers after just two open houses, and that said a lot in the down market. John knows what he’s doing. If he didn’t know the answer to a question, he got the answer quickly. He explained all the forms and documentation to me, took care of the reports, kept the whole process smoother and easier because he stayed on top of things, and was there for me from start to finish. I will definitely recommend him to others, and call him again to purchase my next property, which I did in November 2011. Once again John was fantastic. We found the perfect home for me and John made the process go smoothly. I definitely recommend John Bennison!

We found John to be well informed, honest and accurate in his information, and we felt confident that our best interests were represented well.

There were times, during the process, when we were feeling extremely stressed out; John remained a calm voice of reason, listening to our concerns, offering sound advice and guidance, and with excellent follow through.

As much as this sale was not an easy one, we were glad to have had John walking us through it. We are very happy to recommend him and will definitely ask him to represent us on any future transactions.
