My name is John Durso and I am an Associate Broker at REALTY EXECUTIVES.
I welcome the opportunity to meet with you to
- go over your Real Estate needs

In this more difficult market you need a Realtor experienced in your area who will get your home sold for full market value in a reasonable amount of time. As proof of my experience, you will receive an unconditional listing agreement that you can cancel at anytime with no fees to you. I get paid when you get paid, AT CLOSING.

Do You need to sell your home but owe more than you can sell your home for? I am Certified in Short Sales (Selling for less than you owe) by Americas Home Rescue - Certified Default Resolution Specialist (CDRS) program and I am "Short Sale Success Certified". Do not trust a Short Sale to just anyone. These are complicated sales different from a standard sale. Ask me about the Help for Homeowners Making Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives (HAFA) program. Also, FHA, VA, Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac Short Sale programs.

All Realtors are not created equal! I am a Top Producing Realtor that sells more homes than 97% of other Realtors. I can & will get your home sold. View the Map above or Click on My Sales to the left and see a sampling of the many homes that I personally sold.

If you are serious about selling your home then give me a call today and start packing! I look forward to hearing from you.

If you're planning to sell your home in the next few months, nothing is more important than knowing a fair asking price. I would love to help you with a FREE Market Analysis. I will use comparable sold listings to help you determine the accurate market value of your home.

I can't begin to thank you enough for helping us find this fantastic home. I would have never guessed that our first home would have been so perfect. From the first moment I set foot in my house I knew I was "home". It is because of your attention to our needs and wants that we were able to find our dream home so soon. You treated us with a combination of care and professionalism that is so greatly appreciated and needed when searching for a home, not to mention a family's FIRST home. You provided answers to every question we had and evaluated every house so meticulously that it instilled a sense of security knowing you had our best interests in mind. We want to thank you so much for this wonderful addition to our lives and know that your role in that process has never been forgotten. Kim and Angel Nieves
John has been one hundred percent helpful and accommodating to us. John put us at ease as soon as he walked through the door. John has an extensive knowledge of the community that he lives in and takes great pride in. He is aware of what is desirable to a buyer. He is constructive in suggesting changes and complimentary to the efforts we put into our home. He is very accommodating with requests, getting us help, and responding to our calls and e-mails in a very timely manner. John uses his Chelsea Cove homeowner status as a benefit to us. He let a workman in for us, checked our appliances, and turned up our heat on those colder days that have snuck up on us. He has kept us updated on our townhouse on weekdays, weeknights, and weekends. I have called him more than once on the weekends and heard a cheery and helpful voice on the other end of the phone answer my questions. I highly recommend John as a realtor for Chelsea Cove. If we had property elsewhere, John would be our first choice, also. His knowledge of real estate in general and his pleasant can-do attitude make us happy to have him as our realtor. Catherine Notz
