"John Giannakis helped me buy my first home in downtown Hamilton. Great guy, extremely friendly, and very professional. He was very informative and patient with me, making sure I find exactly what I need. He knew exactly where to look and also where to not look. With his background in contracting, he was able to spot if the work inside was properly done, which helped a lot. I would definitely recommend! Thank you John!"
"John was great to work wIth. He helped me find the perfect place when I moved out west. He taught me a lot of little things about finding a home that I never would've figured out on my own. Which saved me a lot of hassle. He actual cared about what I needed, rather than just being concerned about making a quick sale. Very friendly and responsive. I recommend John highly."
"I have worked with John Giannakis for several real estate issues and have had a very professional and excellent experience. John is very knowledgeable and passes on lots of information so his clients are completely informed before making any decisions. As well if John is not completely happy with a potential purchase opportunity he will advise clients to not move forward. I would recommend him to anyone I know who is in the market to buy or sell property."
