"John reached out to me when I was looking for a house to rent in Baltimore. Two years later, my wife and I asked him to help us buy our first home. John was knowledgeable, prompt, honest, and patient with us during these two events. I've lost count of how many times we've reached out to him with questions, even after we purchased our home. I cannot recommend John Bailey enough."
"John is a total rock-star! He has made our first home buying experience a great one. He listened and paid close attention to everything we wanted and never pushed us to go outside of our comfort zone financially. We closed on our dream home today and could not have done it without John. I absolutely recommend him and I will definitely use his services again if needed!"
"A HUGE thank you to John Bailey for helping us to both find the home we were looking for and get our townhouse sold quickly! John was with us for those crazy days of traveling to 5 or 6 homes in a matter of hours. Thanks for your patience and guidance through the entire process. Highly recommended!"
