Here are reviews and recommendations from my clients!
from Bloomington Realtor Juan Carlos Carrasquel, Bloomington’s Most Trusted Real Estate Agent, (812) 369-0785
Juan executed our house listing and sale in a very timely and professional manner. Very responsive and helpful throughout the process. Would def recommend. -Wes and Kelly K. October 2016
I went with Juan Carlos based only on Zillow reviews and I was so pleased with his service! I was in the middle of a relocation myself and never got anywhere near Bloomington, yet was able to easily sell my house quickly at a price I was very happy with. Juan Carlos also went over and above in helping me with cleaning my house, lining up contractors as needed, and even helping with a slight HOA problem we had. I never thought it would have been so painless to sell a house from a thousand miles away, but Juan Carlos always treated me as if I was his only customer (and my home was on the low end of the market). Thank you, Juan Carlos. I’d use you again in a heartbeat! -Jon F. October 2016
Juan was very helpful and he was very quick to respond to our questions. He is down to earth yet very professional. Juan is open and honest and he possesses very good negotiation skills. Juan was a pleasure to work with. -Frank and Robin P. October 2016
Mr. Carrasquel spent 5 years helping me to fine a place ( I was very picky, but I also was often away). During that time, he was always responsive, available to show places, and patient! Eventually, I found two places at the same time, but there was a 200K difference in price. Juan felt that the more expensive place was overpriced and advised me accordingly. I trusted his advice and bought the less expensive property. As it turns out, he was absolutely right, the other place kept lowering their price because no one was making an offer. So he sacrificed his higher commission, to make sure that I didn’t overpay. During the closing process, he helped with the negotiations and all the other arrangements and made it as easy as it could be. I highly recommend Juan Carrasquel to be your realtor! -Peter S. August 2016
He was professional and friendly. He helped me close on my first house and worked with me through the whole process, from start to finish. I would recommend Juan Carlos to anyone in the Bloomington area looking for a good realtor. You will not be disappointed! -Logan H. August 2016
Juan was very professional and made the experience of buying my first home very seamless and enjoyable. I appreciated his honesty when viewing homes and helping to point out things that I may have overlooked. Overall, I would recommend Juan to anyone looking to buy a home. -Nathan K. August 2016
Juan Carlos guided me through the purchase of my first home. I relocated for work from Miami and he was a huge help in us getting to know Bloomington, its neighborhoods and some of the upcoming plans for various sites. This is invaluable information to a home buyer, especially when they haven’t been around to learn about it themselves. What set Juan Carlos apart for us from the beginning was his use of modern technical conveniences – he really makes working with him easy. I’d definitely recommend him to anyone in need of real estate services! No one is going to know the market or the process better. Not to mention that if you need a referral for another services, he’s got great people that he works with! Overall, we were extremely happy with the process! Oh, and did I mention that we started searching for and closed on our house in less than six weeks?! Look no further! -Carissa P. August 2016
Working with Juan Carlos has been a pleasure. He is extremely knowledgeable about Bloomington and always went the extra mile to find the types of properties I was looking for. He is patient and professional in every way and I couldn’t recommend him more. If you are looking for top-notch service and professionalism then he is your guy. -Joshua B. August 2016
Juan Carlos was patient, diligent, and attentive during our home search process. He offered helpful suggestions and insights which made the search easy and ultimately led us to a wonderful home at a fantastic price. Highly recommended! -Katie C. August 2016
We had a great experience with Juan Carlos. His insights into the marketplace were excellent, and he quickly identified the major things we needed to do in order to make our house marketable to the right clientele. We received a great offer on our house in a relatively short period of time. We would certainly work with him again. -Galen C. August 2016
HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! We appreciated all of Juan’s hard work. We bought a home from out of state and he made the process very easy for us. He is an excellent realtor and was very reliable and easily accessible throughout the entire process. -Jessie S. July 2016
Juan was very helpful in getting me my new home. I am a first time home buyer and his team was very helpful in helping me through the process of buying a home. -Ryan H. July 2016
It was a privilege to observe Juan Carlos and his team in action as they successfully marketed my home. Even though I was living across the country, the entire process was hassle free, and I always felt informed and assured of the progress being made. I would say Juan Carlos is tops in the business for the following reasons: 1. Market Expertise: He really understands the Bloomington area and how to get the full potential out of a home without making too many costly/risky updates. 2. Professional Network: When updates to a house are needed, he can recommend the best contractors and negotiate a very fair price. 3. Technology: His virtual showings are some of the best I have seen. Also, all documentation and signatures can be handled online, which was a real plus since I was out of town. Even closing was a piece of cake. 4. Negotiation Skills: Juan Carlos understands the needs/wants of each type of buyer or seller and was very effective in strengthening any deals while he represented me. All-in-all, I was very fortunate with my realtor experience and would always work with Juan Carlos in the future. -Greg S. July 2016
We enjoyed working with Juan and Andrea. They were very helpful through every stage of the process of both selling and buying our new home. We will recommend them to our friends and family. -Amy S. July 2016
I’m so glad we chose Juan Carlos to help us buy our first home! He is incredibly knowledgable and very helpful. There was never a time we needed him that he wasn’t available which is so nice when a first-timer has no clue what to do. We highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling! -Angela B. July 2016
Juan sells is the best realtor company in town, by far! He knows the business and is an honest expert in the market of selling/buying homes! He and his staff were readily available when needed and were attentive throughout the entire process. We bought and sold a home within weeks! His staff Brad and Andrea are extremely helpful and willing to help in anyway possible! I highly recommend “Juan Sells”!!! Great job Juan, Brad, and Andrea!!! And…. Thank you!!! -Crystal R. July 2016
As a Californian moving to Indiana to start medical school at IU, I chose Juan because he was highly rated on Yelp and even then he exceeded my expectations. Knowing little about the area, Juan was very knowledgable and gave us a great introduction to the different neighborhoods and a general feel for the city. He not only was patient in listening to our housing needs but gave great advice that helped us to streamline our options. He even quickly negotiated to let us see a house early on our last day in town, which turned out to be exactly what we wanted, and walked us through the entire process putting us in touch with local lenders. We got pre-approval for financing, made our offer, and within 6 hours our it was accepted all before our plane took off as we made our way home. Special thank you to Andrea and the rest of Juan’s staff in helping to make the entire process a pleasant and stress-free experience. -Zoe S. July 2016
We were very satisfied with Juan’s service and being upfront about his opinion of the property and price. Juan was always very responsive with any questions we had and made sure we were the first ones to see the interested property and if he could not make it he ensured someone would be there to show us the property. -Pratik P. June 2016
Juan was very helpful throughout the selling and buying process. He gave great advice, but was also very accommodating to our preferences. Despite managing many transactions, Juan gives you the feeling that you are the only client, and gives you priority. -Robert R. June 2016
Juan Carlos is simply amazing. He tells you right away that he wants to provide 5-star service, and if he ever falls below it, let him know. Well, he never falls below 5-stars! After an absolute disaster with another realtor, we were referred to Juan Carlos by a family friend. We met with him on Good Friday and by Easter Sunday we had four showings. Within six days of our first meeting, we had an accepted offer in on a house! I strongly believe we were successful in such a competitive market because of Juan’s ability to get same-day showings on houses. We sent him properties of interest in the morning, and he had showings scheduled that evening. He was out of town when we found the house we ultimately bought, but he was still in constant contact and was able to schedule a same-day showing of the house. Communication was still clear and prompt even though he was out of town. When it looked like the deal was about to fall through, Juan was in constant contact and kept working for us to ensure the deal was completed and we got what we felt we needed as a first-time buyer. Whether Juan or one of his associates, you can expect prompt (almost instantaneous) returns of texts, emails, calls, and every question answered in a manner which you will understand, not “real estate speak.” I don’t know why anyone in Bloomington and Monroe County would use anyone else for their real estate needs. -Cassandra U. May 2016
Juan and his team did an excellent job. I am a first time homeowner and was nervous about the process. Juan helped ease my mind and made my first experience speedy and pleasant. I felt well informed and supported throughout the process. I was grateful to be able to sign most documents via email and this also made things very convenient for me since I work in Indianapolis, but live in Bloomington. I will use his services in the future when the time comes. -Juanita H. May 2016
I would highly recommend Juan and his team. Our experience was excellent, and the whole team were very friendly. All communication was very, very quick and thorough. -Amanda W. May 2016
Juan helped my husband and me to locate a new home after living in our current residence for 35 years plus. We needed a simpler life closer to services. We had very little knowledge about the process or what to expect from an agent, etc. Juan was excellent! He listened to our request, was assertive about identifying places, and guided us through the banking, appraisal, inspection processes once we found a place that would suit our needs. We trusted the information and suggestions he gave us as well as his guidance and help. Thank you again for helping us through this important change in our lives Juan. You really are the best! -Sandra C. April 2016
Juan listed our house as our selling agent and we relied on his knowledge of the market and our neighborhood to obtain an offer quickly, which he did. He advised us on tips for preparing our home, hosted an open house, and provided advise based on his experience during the negotiation. Juan also utilizes many online and socially media tools to help market properties during listing. -Gavin W. April 2016
Juan was very good to work with. Responsive, knowledgeable, great customer service. We will definitely use him again! He showed us many properties and was extremely aware of the market and what was the best choice for us and our family. -Cindy H. April 2016
Juan is a great realtor! He is a very knowledgeable and committed realtor. He had my best interests in mind all through the process of selling my home. And he sold it in 1 day!! I would recommend him to any of my friends and family. -Jon T. April 2016
I contacted several realtors including Juan, but only him responded. I had great experience with Juan. He showed few houses that I wanted to see and gave us some suggestions both positive and negative. He seems to be a hard-working person and replies emails and short messages fast and even late at night. The whole process only took a month. -Andy L. April 2016
Juan came to us late in the process. We had our home listed with another Realtor prior to signing with him The prior Realtor had the home for 6 months, also during prime selling months, and only showed the home about 10 times. Juan got the listing just before Thanksgiving and he had shown the home that many times in December alone. He did not let up and had 4 open houses and showed the home multiple times a week, resulting in not one, but 2 offers. The house has sold and considering I had moved out of state months prior to his involvement, I could not be happier with the outcome. I would not recommend anyone else to sell your home. He truly gets the job done!!
Brad was my realtor from Juan Carlos. Brad and Andrea were both great. Keeping me on track and well informed the entire time. The first property I choose to view would not work for me, but Brad was ready with alternate properties to view. The second property did work and just closed on 3/28/16 -Dale C.
Had a great experience working with Juan. He was super knowledgeable about the communities and market. He also very patiently showed us a wide variety of houses and was always available to answer questions or arrange last minute showings. -Melissa B.
“Juan was an excellent realtor”
Juan was an excellent realtor and helped us immeasurably. He was quick to schedule home viewings, was very knowledgeable on how each house could be improved to build its value, and was fun to work with. We highly recommend Juan and will definitely use him again if we decide to buy or sell.
“No one works harder than Juan Carlos”
No one works harder than Juan Carlos. He is a non-stop machine and has thought of everything possible to make your buying experience a pleasant one. -Ray O.
“We recommend Juan to anyone wanting the very best”
We listed our home with Juan and on the first showing had 2 firm offers. With Juan’s help in negotiating the price we ended up selling the home for $2,000 more than the listing price. The advice we were given in preparing the home for sale made all the difference in having it sell on the first showing. Juan’s use of social media was very impressive and certainly provided excellent results. We recommend Juan to anyone wanting the very best in real estate professionals. -Larry and Deb
“Completely committed to the needs of the client”
I wanted to sell my house in Bloomington, searched online for the company and person with the best record for sales and purchases of houses in this market, and found Juan Carlos as one of the top three in both. Since I believe that history is the best judge of future success, I signed up with Juan Carlos. He immediately had a full review of the house and comparables, and, after determining a sales price and positioning for the home, he started an intense marketing campaign followed by several open houses in a row. Within six weeks he had many comments, and some interested parties. It was then that my wife and I decided to change our mind and return to Bloomington to live there in our home. We’ll never know how quickly he would have made a sale, but I can tell you that he was excited for us, took the house off the market, returned all unspent funds that I had made available for repair work, and was genuinely positive, even though it meant losing a potential sale.
Juan Carlos is a man of genuine integrity, completely committed to the needs of the Client, and very single-minded about closing the deal if the fit is right. I was most impressed with him, from start to finish.
“Juan guided us through”
My wife and I were very pleased with Juan Carlos’ assistance in helping us locate and purchase our home. We had not lived in the United States for 20 years and needed someone to assist us through the whole process of finding a home, making a legitimate offer, and closing. We were a little overwhelmed by the whole process but Juan guided us through. Once we found a home we liked, he provided an assessment of the house, neighborhood, and advised us on the amount we should offer. He told us that he would like to close in 30 days, which we thought was rather aggressive, but in the end, we closed right when he said we would. He gave us that push to get everything done that was necessary to progress through the process.
“He went above and beyond”
Juan Carlos was great to work with when buying a home in Bloomington. First, he took time to understand our needs and preferences. Second, he was very patient with out two small daughters as we took them from home to home. Third, we always got the sense that was protecting our interests as best he possibly could. He did not look past things just to try get a sale. Finally, he went above and beyond, also helping us to look for rental home when we could not find the right house to buy in our first visit. He also helped us get settled and introduced us to many to many of the unique and interesting aspects of Bloomington. We highly recommend him and would work with him again. He is very hard working, passionate about his job and has integrity.
“He was always ready to help us”
Juan Carlos Carrasquel started helping find our house six months ago. He was always ready to help us and guide us step by step in the process of buying a home as we are first time home buyers. He always kept our interests in mind and never pushed us. Juan Carlos knowledge of the real estate market in the Bloomington area is really impressive. Thanks to his negotiation skills we found our ideal home at a reasonable price. We strongly recommend Juan Carlos Carrasquel as your realtor.
“He always had our best interests in mind”
We had a very positive experience working with Juan Carlos. He understood what we were looking for in a home and never pushed us to make an offer or to buy at the top of our price range. Most importantly, we felt that he always had our best interests in mind. He was more than willing to answer the questions that we had as first-time home buyers and to give us good advice about resale considerations and other factors. He also did a good job providing us with the information that we needed to understand the value of the properties and avoid overpaying. Additionally, he was just pleasant to work with. We recommend him highly.
“He is non stop until you are happy”
As I first began my house hunt, Juan jumped at the opportunity to help. I love his patience and motivation. He takes time to figure out what you are looking for and then finds the exact house that would suit your wants and needs. It was easy for me to list all I wanted to see and send them to him. As I sent them, he made time to take me to all of them, and I mean ALL, that he (knowing what I was looking for) thought I would want, and even some he found for me! He is non stop until you are happy, and then guides you thru negotiation in your best interest! Not only did he help with our new purchase but sold our old house too. I recommend all my friends to him and, I cant say enough… He is great!
“Juan Carlos is absolutely the BEST!”
This is our tenth real estate transaction and Juan Carlos is absolutely the BEST! Juan Carlos listened to what we wanted, what our budget was, and he never pushed us out of our comfort zone. Something we have never experienced prior. He also went over an above to make sure we got the best deal and that all items were covered and taken care of. Juan Carlos Carrasquel helped us find our dream house and made sure the entire transaction was incredibly well handled!
Highly recommend this super realtor!
“Juan Carlos is a rare gem among realtors”
Juan Carlos is a rare gem among realtors. He is honest, ethical, and—most importantly—has his client’s best interest in mind. He is not just interested in “closing the deal” so he can get his commission. He is truly looking out for his clients’ best interests. Also, he is extremely knowledgeable of the Bloomington real estate market—both residential and commercial. If you are looking for a trustworthy realtor in Bloomington, IN, look no further. -Herman Aguinis
“I will be recommending him to all of my friends”
He was very motivated to sell my house and he sold it in less than 2 months from start to finish. He is responsible, caring, and dedicated to his job. I was very impressed with his communication, and his attention to detail. I will be recommending him to all of my friends. Great job Juan!
“Juan was very helpful”
Juan was very helpful in helping select a neighborhood and home in my price range and selected area. He traveled over an hour one way each time to the area I wanted to purchase a home in to meet me. Juan made sure I was aware of the pros and cons of each home and neighborhood, helped me locate financing and a home inspector.
Extremely aware of all the details in properties and negotiation. Does his best finding the best deal for his client. Highly recommended.
“I could not have been happier with Juan Carlos Carrasquel”
Juan Carlos was a joy to work with. He was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the process and took the time to diligently answer all of the (many) questions that we had as first-time home buyers. He was also very responsive to any concerns we had with properties that we viewed. I could not have been happier with Juan Carlos Carrasquel and would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
“Knows the Bloomington market really well”
Juan’s greatest strength is that he really listens. He never tried to suggest something I did not want or need. He also was great to bounce ideas off of, and came up with suggestions for improvements I did not think of. I would very highly recommend him. He has great judgement for a buyers agent, and stuck with me through a long negotiation on a bank-owned property. He also knows the Bloomington market really well.
“I will be recommending him to everyone”
Juan Carlos helped my wife and I find and buy our first home. As first-time buyers, we had no idea what we were doing. We emailed him to let him know we were interested in buying a house and he was quick to reply and set up a meeting to see what we were looking for. After looking at a number of houses he called us on a Sunday for to come look at a house that had barely been on the market. He said he thought it was perfect for us. We now live in that house! Juan Carlos was with us every step of the way and helped us really understand the house-buying process. I will be recommending him to everyone that is looking to buy a house.
“Within a matter of days our house was sold”
Juan listed our house after previously trying to sell it through someone else and within a matter of days our house was sold! He was very responsive, detail oriented, knowledgeable, friendly, and trustworthy. He has an eye for detail and was great to work with. I highly recommend Juan for anyone looking to buy or sell.
“No one has been as great as Juan Carlos”
Juan Carlos just helped us buy a home in Bloomington, and we are so pleased to have worked with him. He’s very knowledgeable, thorough, patient, and professional. He did a great job of listening to our needs and focusing on what we wanted, never trying to pressure us into anything we didn’t like or couldn’t afford. He was very prompt about returning messages and answering every question we had. It was apparent, in watching him deal with other professionals in Bloomington, that he’s respected by his colleagues. We’ve moved around a lot over the years, and worked with many different agents, but no one has been as great as Juan Carlos. If you’re buying or selling a home around Bloomington, he’s the person you want to work with.
“His knowledge of the market and Bloomington/Monroe County was exceptional”
When we began our search for a new home, I thought it might be a nightmare, since we were moving from Northern Indiana. I had seen several homes online we liked and were interested in viewing, so We contacted Juan Carlos. He responded that afternoon. He made our search so much easier once he saw the type of home we were interested in. Once we found “our” home, he had great suggestions to help us find financing, get inspections and an appraisal done. He helped us in our negotiations and all of this was done online, since we had to return to our former home up north to get ready for the move. He is friendly and very helpful, which we needed, being from out of town. He made the transition to our retirement home a pleasant experience and was with us every step of the way. His knowledge of the market and Bloomington/Monroe County was exceptional. We are settled in our new home in time for the holidays, which was out goal. We highly recommend Juan Carlos to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home.
“We’ll be working with him again”
Juan was everything we needed in a realtor as first time home purchasers. We went to an open house specifically to meet him, as we’d heard good things from family and friends. He was knowledgeable, helpful, and assertive when necessary. I very much appreciated his sense of vision – we ended up purchasing a home that we would not have even seen as it wasn’t within our criteria (one bathroom and we wanted two). Juan helped us see the potential in the home, and helped us navigate a very complicated process of working with a contractor to renovate the home prior to purchase – something we wouldn’t have known how to do on our own. He was patient, helpful, insanely quick in his responsiveness to our questions/concerns, and did just enough hand-holding to make us feel okay about the biggest purchase we’d ever made up to that point in our lives! He is also honest when it comes to potentially selling your property later on – what things to put money into so you’ll get the most back, etc. Juan was a valuable resource to have during a stressful process. When it comes time, we’ll be working with him again! 🙂
“We are both extremely happy that we found Juan”
We purposefully went to an open house Juan was hosting even though we were not interested in the home because we had heard good things about him and his skills as a realtor and wanted to meet him face to face. He had helped some friends and family out in the past as well. We were very happy that we sought him out. This was my wife and I’s first home buying experience and we were so pleased with the process as Juan made things that much easier for us. He is extremely knowledgeable and responsive, and trust me, responsiveness is something you really want and need in a realtor. He was able to answer any of our questions, he understood what we wanted and liked, and was able to find us the perfect location during our hunt for our first home. He has vision and opinions that were helpful, even if it isn’t the same vision or opinions that we had. He doesn’t wait around and sit on his hands, he jumps on opportunities when he needs to for you as the client. He also was very helpful in painting the picture for us in possible future improvements, what gives you the biggest return, and what will help sell the place down the road, if and when we wanted to seek a new home later in life. We are both extremely happy that we found Juan and with our first home purchase.
“Juan has my whole-hearted endorsement”
Juan was very responsive to our questions and concerns. I know many people who complain about their real estate agents just acting as passive by standers. Juan was very aggressive in marketing our home, he had three open houses for us. He sent out postcards to the neighborhood inviting them to an extended open house especially if they had friends or relatives who might like moving into the neighborhood. A clever marketing idea I thought. At the start, getting ready to put our home on the market he brought in (without cost to us) a “stager”, someone who specializes in recommending how to make a house look its’ best for selling. While we initially bristled at some of the recommendations, they were good and we followed most of them. We were very concerned about not selling during the summer selling season. We got the sale done mid-summer, at the price we wanted. Juan was also very helpful in negotiating the closing details and corrections from the inspection report. Juan has my whole-hearted endorsement
“Knowledgeable of both the residential and commercial markets in the area”
I have worked with Juan Carlos on several transactions where he represented me as the seller. He is always professional, has good follow-through, and is very knowledgeable of both the residential and commercial markets in the area. Juan Carlos also has a large network of professionals in all aspects of real estate (insurance, contractors of all areas, etc), so he is able to make recommendations ealisly to assist with the process.
“We will go to Juan for all of our buying/selling needs”
Juan not only sold this home for my family and I, he helped us find our home in 2011. We will go to Juan for all of our buying/selling needs. The best part about having Juan as a Realtor is that he stays available, long after a purchase or sell, to offer advice and tips on how to improve the value of your home/property.
“There was never a time we needed him that he wasn’t available”
I’m so glad we chose Juan Carlos to help us buy our first home! He is incredibly knowledgable and very helpful. There was never a time we needed him that he wasn’t available which is so nice when a first-timer has no clue what to do. We highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling!
“Will respond at the drop of a hat”
Myself – 1st time home buyer, no previous real estate experience
Juan has a wide range of skills that allowed me to comfortably and confidently purchase my first home. He is very responsive, and will respond at the drop of a hat (no pun intended). Normal business hours do not restrain him – it doesn’t matter what time or what day, he will be available if you are in need. He has a lot of experience and gave me advice and help to make sure I was getting the right house at the right price. I would highly recommend Juan for any first time home buyer.
Sold fast our home fast! Showed it one time had good recommendations very knowledgeable about the area. Very professional. Sold thehouse across from us very fast as well.
“He made our dreams for the perfect home come true”
Juan Carlos is amazing, the end!!! I contacted him regarding a home my husband and I were interested in seeing. He responded via email, text and phone call within 4 hours. We set up an appointment 2 days later. The house was not what we expected and we did not have an official realtor at the time. He was not pushy, just asked general questions regarding what we were looking for…instantly a light went off andhe said we have to see a home that is not “on the market yet” but could be exactly what you are looking for. It was!!! We made an offer that day and he communicated with us almost daily until we closed. He made our dreams for the perfect home come true. We also used him for the sale of our home and it sold within two days for the listing price. I think Juan is as perfect as it gets for both the purchase of your home and the sale!!!
“He always met us with a friendly, outgoing, and honest demeanor”
My husband and I first met with my parents when we had barely started to look at homes. We are both pretty passive people, and Juan is direct, honest, and candid, which we needed. We told us right away to get pre-approved by a lender (which in hindsight is so true-do that right away). We then told him the area in which we were hoping to purchase. He signed us up for Client Connect, which found homes for us in the area we wanted. We found that the houses around the Bloomington B-line were either not in our price range or had previously been pretty beat up. Juan had predicated as much, but we had hoped differently. He recommended another neighborhood in Bloomington that is “up and coming”, even though it is not the 5-minute commute to downtown we are used to. We found something that worked for us right away in the Broadview area, and is still only a 10-minute commute or 5-minute bike ride to downtown. Juan let us know that an offer had been made on the house, and he contacted us that evening. He helped us come up with the numbers that worked for us, and the offer was accepted, either that evening or early the next morning. He must work around the clock. From there Juan advised us through necessary benchmarks, due dates, and negotiations that we knew nothing about without his help. Other than the logistics that Juan walked us through even after our closing date, he always met us with a friendly, outgoing, and honest demeanor which was so refreshing for first-time home buyers. Big thumbs up!
“I can’t say enough good things about my experience with him”
Juan Carlos was imminently patient, responsive, and helpful throughout the process of purchasing our first home. I was amazed the first time we walked into a house and, rather than try to push us to buy it, he gave us his honest evaluation of the positives and negatives of the home. He patiently answered the dozens of questions we sent his way, at all hours of the day (and sometimes night!). In addition, we are moving to Bloomington from out of the state and he has been incredibly friendly and welcoming, even inviting us to see a show at the local theater with him. I can’t say enough good things about my experience with him and give him my highest recommendation.
“I would strongly recommend Juan”
Juan is a great realtor. We first contacted him on a Saturday night via email. He replied 20 minutes later and asked us to compile a list of the properties we liked. We met the next day to revise the list and he showed us two houses in our most desired neighborhood a few hours later. He was very knowledge about the local market and told us one of the house was overpriced. When he showed us the house, he listened carefully about what we like and what we don’t like so he could try to show us the houses that are not on the market yet. Juan was very responsive. For the first house we offered, he arranged and showed us the houses three or four hours later after the house was on the market and helped us make the offer. He was also very helpful getting all the contractors to estimate the repair costs. Due to some reasons, we walked away from the first house and Juan was diligent trying to find us another house. Initially, I was reluctant to have agent representing both sides. However, with Juan, it turned out fine. Before making the offer, I thought some repair work maybe one or two thousand bucks, and I was worried when I got a more than six thousand quote from the contractor. I was concerned how to split this cost with the seller as it is a really seller’s market here. With Juan’s help, the seller picked up all the repair cost. I am really happy about that. Overall, I would strongly recommend Juan.
“Our home buying experience was great”
After making the decision to move my father and I to Bloomington from Springfield IL. The only time we had to search for a suitable home for both of us was over the Christmas and New Year holidays. I thought it would be a problem to find an agent, but luckily we found Juan Carlos! Not only was he available to show us 5 houses on Christmas eve in the rain and gloom, he was downright cheerful. We found a house and he was always close by via text, email or phone. He seemed to move things along swiftly, always one step ahead. Our home buying experience was great. Juan Carlos is now more than a real estate professional, he is a friend.
“Professional, courteous and well versed in the Bloomington market”
Juan is a very knowledgeable and committed realtor. I would have no reservations listing or buying with him. Professional, courteous and well versed in the Bloomington market.
“Just what we needed”
Juan was recommended to us. He and his staff responded very quickly to our request and he had a very good knowledge of what was available in the area for what we were looking for. He arranged showings very quickly and followed up with details as needed. To sum up he and his staff were just what we needed.
“On top of his game”
Juan was very informative and was on top of his game. I was told that the sale would happen fast; not only did he deliver but I received asking price with a closing in thirty days of listing.
“Juan is great”
Juan is great if you need to get into a house fast. He makes himself very available. He pointed out possible issues with homes and did not try to shy away from them.
“He was pivotal in helping us find a great property”
Juan is very knowledgeable and great to work with. He really listened to what we wanted. Even during our lengthy search, Juan was always engaged and reassuring. He was pivotal in helping us find a great property.
“He helped us understand the area and make an informed decision”
Juan Carlos and his associate (Andrea) are professional, thorough, and very helpful. We were in the process of transitioning to Bloomington and had little knowledge of the neighborhoods, school districts, etc. Connecting with Juan was the right choice for us because he helped us understand the area and make an informed decision. His team continued to communicate with us through closing to ensure it was a smooth process. We highly recommend Juan for families transitioning to Bloomington, as our experience was really positive. In addition, we found that his website was the most helpful resource for finding properties within designated school districts. Juan went out of his way to help us gain an understanding, not only of the homes in the area, but the city of Bloomington and the community aspects of life in Bloomington.
“Juan was very knowledgeable about the area”
Juan was very knowledgeable about the area, schools and planning around Bloomington. He was sincere and really attended to our interests. We looked at a few homes in different locations.
“My first time home buying experience was very positive”
My home buying process was efficient and hassle free, requiring a minimum of legwork on my part. Juan enabled me to see the properties I wanted within a few days notice and once I decided on one, the offer/counter-offer negotiation was over in a matter of a few hours. All documentation was performed online with a secure and easy to navigate site. Juan was present for the final walk through and for the closing, ensuring all steps were completed. Overall, my first time home buying experience was very positive and I would not hesitate to use Juan for future transactions.
“Beyond what we expected”
Beyond what we expected. We arrived in Bloomington (and Indiana) and knew nothing about the area. Juan Carlos was incredibly helpful in getting us acclimated, and helping find the right home for us. We had a LOT of questions as first time home buyers, and being new to the area (I’m not kidding – so, so many questions). Juan Carlos and his staff were accessible, prompt, thorough, and knowledgeable about the process and local resources – gave great detail and anticipated our questions and concerns which helped immensely. When it was time to make an offer, we felt informed and like he advocated for us. The whole process was like shopping for a house with a friend who really wants you to make the best choice for you – no pressure, and lots of (unexpected) fun.
“I would choose Juan again”
Works very hard to sell your home/find a home. Respectful and always available to answer any questions you might have along the way. I would choose Juan again if we had to sell down the road.
“Everything went as smooth as possible”
It’s our second time working with Juan Carlos. Everything went as smooth as possible. He takes care of so many things before they get to our nerve. We’ll definitely work with him again if we decide to go back to Bloomington.
“He went above and beyond for us”
Awsome job,if you want to sell call Juan Carlos he will work day and nite. He went above and beyond for us .he has buyers lined up and has a lot of experience and knowledge
