Our relationship with John Vlad began when we started searching for homes online and discovered his website He responded to our request immediately to see a condominium in Islamorada. It wasn’t exactly what we were looking for, so he emailed us some homes we might be interested in. After looking at a few we found one we really liked in a great neighborhood, but it was a short sale. We decided to make an offer and after several months of waiting finally got a counter offer that was out of our price range. Over the months of waiting John was always sending us updates as he got them and was always prompt in responding to my emails. Being first time home buyers we had many questions and John was always patient with us. He always cared about giving us the correct information and took extra time to research when he was unsure of the answer. Shortly after we received an answer from the bank we found another home with possibilities. John made sure he was available to attend the inspection and he truly cared we got a home that was a good investment. Unfortunately this home was not a good investment, so we had to move on and keep looking. After a couple more months we decided to broaden our search to homes in Key Largo and John kept insisting we see this particular house. We were skeptical since it was so small, but it had a lot of potential. I am so glad John convinced us to see this home because it ended up being a great home for us. Throughout the process John was always available to answer questions and sign paperwork that was needed. We ended up becoming good friends with John and even had him and his wife at our wedding. I would highly recommend John as a realtor and we will definitely use him again in the future.

Thanks for everything while we were down there. We have all dealt with many realtors over the years and it was the collective opinion that you were the best we’ve ever had. It is always a special treat to visit that true national treasure that is the Florida Keys. It’s even better when you have someone cool to hang out with.

Mr John Vlad has our highest recommendation for his professionalism, diligence, perserverance, and “stick to and solve the impossible” attitude. John was always the consummate professional, yet easy going with an attitude that was calm and casual. His diligence and attention to detail was spot on in dealing with difficult buyers, such as showing buyers all the advantages of a property, not once but several times. He perservered with buyers that were obsitnate and difficult, then provided solutions when there seemed to be an impasse.

I have dealt with many agents and brokers in the past 47 years and believe that John Vlad is the BEST I have ever dealt wtih buying or selling real estate!
