Bought and sold a single family home in 2022 in South Heights, PA 15001.

John is an amazing agent. I relied on him through every step of the selling and buying process because I trust that he will not let me miss or overlook anything. He gives down to earth advice. He even saved us a good chunk of money by catching a mistake the settlement company made at closing. I will recommend him to everyone I know ready to buy or sell!

I couldn’t have asked for a better experience selling my house. John was always keeping me updated. He explained every thing simply and plainly so that I can understand every aspect of what was happening. He even went above and beyond by cutting the grass at the property.

Sold a for approximately $175Khome in 2020 singleFamily in Stobo, Monaca, PA 15061.

There is nobody who will do more for you than John Gates. We personally undervalued our home. At first we did not agree with his valuation of our home. We thought his recommendation for the asking price was too high and we were looking for a quick sale because we had already moved and were not looking forward to owning two homes for very long. We had 8 showings in the first weekend. We received a full price offer after only ten days on the market. We highly recommend John. He will make you feel comfortable about every decision you make during the process of selling your home. The thing we were most impressed with was his willingness to do whatever was necessary in order to help us out. When the buyer did their final walkthrough, just two days before closing, they asked if the washer/dryer could be removed along with a 2nd refrigerator we had in our basement. John took it upon himself to remove these items to ensure there was no delay with the closing.

Bought a singleFamily home in 2020 for approximately $250K.

John was by far the best agent I have ever worked with. I was relocating from TX to PA, so there was many calls and conversations between us in the long drawn out 8 month process. He answered his phone at all hours or promptly called me back. He is very knowledgeable in the market, the area, and even has a background in appraisal which was very helpful. He's honest, upfront, and isn't looking for a quick sale to make a dollar. He wanted us to find the "right" home. He goes above and beyond. I can't give enough praise on here for the outstanding job he did. He's my first call if I ever need another agent in the area!! Thank you very much John!!!

John Gates is a great Realtor. He helped me find and purchase my first rental property w/in 3mos. of me telling him my goals. He took me to walk every house that made sense to me. As well, was honest and knowledgeable and helped me find exactly what I was looking for, “the brand”. Johnny Gates has been integral in my life even before I even knew him. As he has also helped my father acquire numerous rental properties as well. All while only having maybe one face to face encounter over the last 10yrs, as my dad isn’t based in Pittsburgh area.

I recommend using John Gates as your real estate agent. He’s very honest and knowledgeable. He will make sure you find the right house. In my situation it took months to find what I was looking for and John was very patient as he showed me over 40 houses in that period of time. He’s very good at accessing what he thinks a house is worth and figuring out a fair price to offer or ask for a house. Whether buying or selling, this is your guy.

Even though John Gates is the first real estate agent I've dealt with, he made the experience truly enjoyable and I will be sure to have him represent me again, in the future if the need arises!With every road block that came up while selling my mother's house, he dealt with it with calmness and professionalism.I would highly recommend John to anyone looking for an agent that will have your best interest at heart.Great Job Johnny!!!!

I like that John was very honest and helped me every step of the way during my purchasing process. Anything that I asked or needed, he made sure that all my questions were answered and provided me resources that I could also use. When other friends and family are ready to purchase a home, I will definitely refer him as an agent. John made this journey alot less stressful than it could have been and I truly appreciate it!

Bought a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $125K in Pittsburgh, PA.

Honestly, John Gates was a saint. As a first time homebuyer, I was a little on edge about everything and he dealt with me and my neurosis with patience and grace. He kept me calm, cool, and collected. Even when my buying process didn’t go according to our plans and my closing got delayed multiple times due to others not doing their jobs well, Johnny knew just what to do and say to talk this donkey off her edge. He went above and beyond, even going to pick up and hand deliver documents to the closing company trying to salvage my closing date when everyone else was ready to just push it out for the 4th time (like I said, my journey to home ownership was full of man made obstacles). He always had my best interests in mind and I know that I couldn’t have done it without him! Thanks a million Johnny!

John is very personable, easy to get along with and great person to be around.

I cannot thank John Gates enough in our Journey to find the perfect house. We spoke with him about 6 months ago, and decided that we were going to wait a bit. He did not hassle us at all about the decision, after about 4 months of us not contacting him, we had a few houses that we wanted to look at. John immediately got back to us, worked with our work schedules and got us into all of the houses. He is great at what he does and is extremely down to earth.

I would highly recommend John Gates as a realtor. His real estate knowledge and expertise is superb. Very friendly and honest person. Our home sold in 3 days with multiple offers and with John's knowledge we were able to land a very impressive sell price. He's been very patient and courteous to our wants and needs. Even as we are looking for a new home. John presents himself with the utmost integrity. He will go to bat for his clients. Not someone just looking for a sale. Truly has the customer's best interest at heart. He certainly is the best person and agent I have been associated with. And I have been around many in my time. He even set aside some time out of his busy schedule to help us move. Not many agents will commit to something like that. You can't go wrong with John Gates representing you!

Bought a Single Family home in 2017 for approximately $75K in New Brighton, PA.

The ONLY realtor I will ever recommend!! John Gates helped me purchase my first home last week, and when I say “helped” I mean he did EVERYTHING! He is so easy to talk to and such a down-to-earth guy. Buying a house is so stressful, but he was more than willing to help in any way that he could. He explained the entire process to me from beginning to end and anything I had questions about, he was quick to answer them. If he didn’t have an answer for one of my questions, he was very honest, and he would find the answer and get back to me as soon as he got it! When the appraisal came through, there were several spots inside and outside of the house that needed painted to pass FHA guidelines, including the front and back porch roofs. You know what he did? Without me even asking, he offered to roll up his sleeves and help me get it done! He put in almost 7 hours of scraping and painting with me just to make sure that it was done by our closing date! When it came time to close, he even gathered all the contact information to get my utilities switched over! Guaranteed, purchasing my first home would have never been so easy and exciting if it wasn’t for John Gates!

Mr. Gates is an outstanding agent! I couldn't be happier with the service he provided. He's everything you want in an agent. He's very knowledgable and he puts the effort in to make the sale. Too many agents just list your house and sit back and wait, but not John. I live out of state which added some additional challenges that John handled with ease. After some items came up on an inspection John was invaluable for finding and managing reliable local businesses to get everything taken care of. He even offered to do some of the tasks himself. That's the kind of guy he is. Call him today! You won't be sorry!

John is an exceptional agent to work with during the entire home buying process! The moment he shows you a house, he can tell you the area comps, good and bad points about the house, and provide a very good estimate about what the selling price will be.

Bought a home in 2015 in Fairoaks, Ambridge, PA 15003.

Nobody was dreading buying a house more than me. My wife and I had been renters our whole life, so I knew nothing about this process. We gave John a very long list of needs and wants, and a very low budget in some high priced school districts. I really thought we were just wasting his time. I could not believe how excited John was to step up to this challange. In no time at all, there we were, looking at our dream house in Quaker Valley School District. This house not only met all our needs, but had all of our wants as well. This house was perfect, and right in our target price range. Negotiating the deal was a breeze, and the closing process was over faster than anyone I've talked to. No matter what you're looking for, John Gates is your man!

John was an awesome agent. We could not have asked for anyone better. He was very available and reliable. John knew the areas we were looking in very well and never lead us in the wrong direction. If there was something wrong with a property or he didn't think it would fit our family needs he would tell us.

After buying our home John even helped us with cleaning and getting the house ready for us to move in. We would recommend John to all our family and friends.

John Gates helped us in so many ways during our recent sale and subsequent purchase of our new home. John's attentiveness and response to our requests during our selling process were exemplary. John's knowledge of our area and comps in the area allowed us to aggressively price our home and sell quicker than expected. He helped in every single milestone point during the process and explained how we should proceed with the buyer requests.Rather than passing off our request as our realtor, he accepted the challenge to find us our new home and WOW, he did a fantastic job understanding our requests as well as our needs within our budget. John was very responsive and readily available. I travel frequently for work, so John was my 'eyes and ears' during the showings and I trusted his opinions.I wish John nothing but the best as a realtor. He's a great communicator and realist when it comes to his client's needs and wants. I would recommend John to anybody who has to sell or is looking for a new home.
