What do Clients Say?
“When we began our search for a new home it was paramount that we have a realtor dedicated to our needs. We interviewed several realtors in the area, but there was only one that met our expectations. John Snippen exudes professionalism, knowledge, and true dedication to clients. John is well versed in all aspects of the home buying process. His local knowledge of neighborhood planning and bylaws was a great asset. Without reserve we recommend John to individuals looking for an advisory in the real estate market.”Bradley and Kirsten Scott
“With pleasure, we would recommend John Snippen as a professional who understands the value of personal relationships, strategy in a tough real estate market and communication. We placed a lot in Pronghorn, Bend, OR on the market, under John Snippen’s brokerage. Throughout the time our property was on the market, John communicated relevant real estate market conditions and situations. Ultimately, John found a purchaser for our property and worked with us through the sales transaction. The purchaser required a very fast turn-around time. Not residing in Bend, it was extremely important for us to know John was knowledgeable with the twists and turns the economy. John’s true knowledge of real estate market conditions, his strong communication skills and valuing client relationships will always place his clients in good hands. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have regarding our real estate experience with John Snippen as our broker.”Patrick and Stephanie
“My wife and I worked with John Snippen when we were buying a house here in Bend a year ago. We have worked with 5 Realtors over the years when buying or selling houses. John is the most knowledgeable and professional realtor we have ever worked with. When looking at properties he was honest in telling us the drawbacks of each property. He wasn’t just trying to sell us a house to get paid. We felt that he was truly looking out for our best interests. I have so much confidence in him that we have referred friends, family, and clients of my business to him. Every referral gave us great feedback about working with John.”Tyler and Catherina Simones
“My wife and I were searching for a second home in Bend in the Spring of 2010. We were referred to John by a realtor in Washington and quickly were very impressed. We were pleased with John’s extensive knowledge of the market in Bend and his quick, thorough responses to any questions we had. John did not let any details slip through the cracks. This was not our first real estate purchase, but probably the easiest due to John’s handling of all the details. Even though there were some difficult obstacles in our purchase, John expertly advised us and handled issues from finance to inspections to closing. After our offer, we did not return to Bend until closing because we felt so comfortable having John represent us. We highly recommend John without reservation.”Bill and Sandy
“I was referred to John by a mutual friend, and contacted him with some questions about the Central Oregon Real Estate market. Most of my communication was via email, John was always detailed and thorough in his explanation. Because of John's communication, we hired him to sell our property. With email, the communication needs to be clear and concise, with no room for a misunderstanding and John is proficient with all of his communication. My wife and I had a property to sell in Central Oregon, while our primary residence was in Portland. We had a lot of questions, we had been involved in many real estate transactions before with other properties. John, didn't make any assumptions, he answered all of our questions and backed up his answers up with Real Estate data from the area. Because we lived away from Central Oregon, email was the best way for us to communicate. Email is a valid communication channel, which is convenient, and permanent. John has embraced technology by using email effectively, always asking if all of our questions were answered. In all of my experience with my real estate transactions, John was professional, always having our best interests at heart, respectful, and down right pleasant to do business with. We not only had a great experience working with John, we have gained a friend because of our transaction. I am highly recommending John, to anyone interested in Central Oregon Real Estate.”Jeff and Tracy
