A true professional with unmatched market knowledge 6/15/2012

John is a consummate professional. When my wife and I were interviewing potential agents, we were immediately impressed with John’s expertise and knowledge of the market. As a result of our interactions with John, we decided to cancel our other interviews. We were not disappointed with our decision. John did a fantastic job explaining the process, keeping us on track, and anticipating any issues that could potentially arise. I would highly recommend John to my closest friends and family, and we will certainly use his services when the time comes again. Thanks John, for all your hard work...and for making it fun! more

Local Expert and Excellent Hand-Holder 4/17/2012

We worked with John to purchase our first home in March of 2012. In addition to being first time home buyers, we were very new to the Seattle area and John was an excellent agent helping us navigate the search process. He was patient and a great hand-holder – walking us through the purchasing process; educating us on the past, present and future Seattle market; and helping us better identify and prioritize what most mattered to us. I would definitely recommend John and use him again in the eventual purchase of our next home and sale of our current home. The three things I most appreciated were: 1. With our newness to the area, his intimate, on-the-ground knowledge of Seattle’s neighborhoods provided important insight into our decision-making process. 2. We were on a self-imposed tight timeline and John was available and eager to show us homes, graciously working around our schedules and revisiting houses multiple times. 3. We began our home search with a very vague idea of what we wanted. As we began to define our vision for a future home, John adapted quickly to our dream and helped us negotiate a purchase that aligned with our needs and our vision. more

Helped buy our home 12/20/2011

John helped us find and purchase our new house in 2011. We had been looking for over a year, and during that time, John was very patient and persistent in finding new homes for us to look at. We looked at a lot of homes… All through the ins-and-outs of financing, John did a great job providing advice and information. When we finally found a house that we were interested in making an offer for, he was very good at communicating with the other agent, and the finance team. At first the purchase appeared to be pretty straight forward, but after the inspection, a major issue with the home became apparent. We had to negotiate a very expensive repair with the sellers. John did a great job helping to sift through estimates, meeting contractors, and troubleshooting throughout the process. The negotiation went well, and In the end, the repairs were made to our satisfaction. The purchase went off without any further hitches. Start to finish, John was professional, thorough, and did a great job communicating with all parties. We would highly recommend him. more

John Madrid is an All-Star 10/2/2011

John helped us to navigate a very quick purchase of a house in the Bryant neighborhood that we love!! His wisdom, expertise, and invaluable knowledge of the region, process, and local experts made this THE most pleasant real estate experience that we've ever been a part of! more

Very Happy with John Madrid 9/6/2011

John helped us sell our house in 2011, and right from the beginning he maintained a very positive attitude that helped energize us to get the house ready for sale. John’s experience with the internet definitely helped market the house. Once negotiations started with potential buyers, John’s real estate experience was really important. Not only did he get us a great price, he kept everyone on track and managed all the issues that came up in a professional and effective manner. Since we were out of town, John’s constant communication by e-mail and phone was very important to us. We would highly recommend John to help sell your home, or to guide you to a new home. more

Found a house we love! 9/1/2011

John was a pleasure to work with. He's a professional and personable guy with a very good knowledge of the greater Seattle area, and real estate in general. There was very good communication throughout the process, and we found a house we were very happy with. Start to finish the entire process was a breeze. more

John Madrid - John L Scott Real Estate 5/27/2010

I hired John to sell my townhouse in Queen Anne, Seattle in April 2010 and I selected John over two other realtors that were personally recommended to me by friends because of the fact that during our first meeting it was obvious that John’s professionalism, extensive knowledge of each of Seattle’s diverse neighborhoods, his thorough review of the comps in (and out of) my neighborhood, his pricing strategy and his background in marketing would help me to best present my home and sell it quickly with as little stress as possible. With John’s help and to my astonishment, my place actually sold within 3 short weeks of being on the market – we got a cash offer at a final price that worked for both parties and a short close which were ideal for my situation. As a first time seller I was very anxious and had several questions and concerns with the down market, the sale process, pricing, staging, photography, etc. and John walked me through it all with impeccable knowledge, patience and grace. Not only is John smart, but he is also a genuine guy with a great attitude which helped to make the experience of selling a home in a down market much easier than I ever thought it could be! So, for these reasons and more I would not hesitate to recommend John as a realtor to anyone selling a home in Seattle. (I would imagine John would be an excellent buyer’s agent for all these same reasons as well!) more

Amazing Customer Service and Reliability (and Fun!) 1/3/2010

John is a knowledgeable, reliable and trustworthy agent. My home sale was a difficult process for me and my family, both emotionally and financially and John was incredibly supportive, patient, and smart every step of the way. I was sold on hiring John when he showed up at our first meeting having done a great deal of homework on the area, and already had some ideas for us to think about and a customized booklet to take away. He always came prepared to meetings, always had suggestions and ideas for things we could do to sell the house more quickly in a down market, and he was always right! He hired a great photographer using new techniques so the pictures look amazing on the web. He hired a sketch artist to draw a rendering of what the backyard could look like if we were to clear out the greenbelt and landscape it since buyers were struggling with the fact that it was not landscaped, but we didn’t have the time to do it. He posted our listing on tons of sites, sent out direct mailings, contacted other agents, set up numerous open houses, let people know when we lowered our price, sent out surveys and took that information to heart. Basically John worked much harder than I have ever seen an agent work – he earned his commission (less than most agents negotiate) and then some. I trusted John to always have my best interests at heart. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a smart, hard-working and caring agent. Plus he has a great sense of humor and is just a lot of fun to be around! more

Helped sell our Starter home, and buy our dream home 8/25/2007

In any relationship, the key element is communication and trust, and John embodies both of these in his business transactions. From the sale of our first home in Ballard, to the purchase of our new home in Green Lake, we felt that John was working in our best interest as buyer and seller. He also was extremely prompt with communication, including driving miles to find cell phone reception in the woods of Michigan to check in. His data and analysis was balanced with common sense and the willingness to explain anything - we felt that he was realistic with the market conditions. Hopefully we will not need his services again since we are now in our dream home! We would not hesitate to recommend John to our friends, family or colleagues. more

Knowledgeable, Experienced & Energetic! 4/24/2007

We initially selected John as our selling agent because we were looking for a knowledgeable professional experienced in the Seattle real estate market. Throughout the entire process of preparing the house for sale, as well as the showing of it, we were impressed with his enthusiasm and seemingly limitless energy. He kept us informed every step of the way, offered suggestions at the right times, and was uniformly upbeat. His guidance clearly worked as he presented us with several competitive offers after only a week and a half of showing. We have since recommended him to many friends and associates, and will continue to do so. We have bought and sold several homes over the years, but have never had an agent we enjoyed working with as much! more

It's simple, John is the best. 12/13/2006

I just sold my condo, my residence of three years, my HOME that I loved. It was not an easy decision. John started the process with education: not just a complete analysis of comps but also a well constructed packet of information about the whole process - terms, definitions, expectations, market trends etc. After making the decision to sell, then changing my mind, then deciding again to sell (a two week period of time during which John showed remarkable patience and understanding) he put together a complete marketing package; utilizing unique, cost effective methods to get the word out. Long story short: Only one weekend. Right Price, Right Time, Right Buyer. Thanks to the Right Realtor. I didn't choose to go with John solely because of his flexible commission schedule, but it sure made the decision seem like a smart one when I was closing escrow. John is professional, friendly, and he'll take good care of you during this otherwise stressful time. more

Great with first time buyers! 10/11/2006

I'm a 25 year old professional that had no idea what went into buying a home. John was very patient and had great tips on which neighborhoods to live in, and even helped me not get into a situation I couldn't possibly afford. more

Excellent all around! 8/26/2006

I'm generally skeptical about both the value of a real estate agent and their ability to get things right, but John proved what a talented professional could do. Both buying and selling, from beginning to end, John did a great job - he managed negotiations, helped prep our house for market, dealt with other agents in some difficult situations, supported us through various neuroses, and made things happen professionally, reliably, and quickly. I would not hesitate to recommend him. more

Hard Worker 7/23/2006

From day-one, John took the time to walk us through the process step-by-step, helping us set realistic expectations and ultimately helping us negotiate a price we were extremely happy with. John is one of the hardest workers I have had the opportunity to deal with, his hustle is without match. He was honest and informed, and I never once questioned how dedicated he was to helping us get the best price. The extra 1.5% we saved wasn't bad either. I am proud to recommend John to friends and family alike. more

Knowledge, Passion, Service! 6/26/2006

John’s passion, interest and knowledge of the local Seattle real estate market are without question. He expertly guided my wife and I through both the sale of our old and purchase of our new home in the Phinney Ridge neighborhood here in Seattle, and we were continually impressed by his attention to detail and excellent customer service. His advice and support proved crucial in the quick sale of our old– and smooth purchase of our new homes. We would again hire John again as our real estate agent without hesitation. more

Fantastic Service! 6/26/2006

My wife and I thought we could outsmart the market and not get a buyer's agent. When we realized our folly and contacted John's office, he responded immediately. Although we ended up not getting the first townhouse we put an offer on, through John's help and his associates, we managed to get an offer turned around 24 hours from the moment we first discovered the house, days before it was scheduled for an open house. The offer was accepted and we have now own a beautiful townhouse in Ballard. What's more, the townhouse was a better fit than what we had found with our failed attempt. John has provided excellent service from offer to closing and beyond! Thank you so much for the role you had in helping us find our first home. It was amazing to us that everything happened so smoothly. You provided excellent service from offer to closing and beyond! more
