We can't speak highly enough of our experience with John Estrada and his company. We were first-
time homebuyers with very little knowledge about how to find the right place. We met with a couple
of realtors before John, but we knew instantly that he was the one for us. He is honest and hands-on
(he even crawled into creepy attics to check insulation for us and even went under the property to
take pictures for us, and so much more!!), and he really helped to take the pressure off of us and
went above and beyond his duties to help us out, and in fact, he continues to do so.
We never felt forced to make an offer and when we finally found the "one" and ended up in a bidding
war, John walked us through every step of the negotiations, even suggesting that we write a letter to
the sellers to explain why we thought they should choose us. It was an unconventional approach, but
it worked out and we thank John for that every day! We have several friends looking for homes and
thinking about selling, and we already recommended John to them!
John is also incredibly personable. On top of being exceptionally good at his job he felt like a friend
after the first showing and certainly is a friend now. We were very picky when it came to finding our
home. It took about 10 months with numerous showings. John worked hard for us and never gave
up even when we almost did. We are happy to say we are in our first home now, thanks to John’s
efforts and I'm very grateful. I love my new home. I would recommend John to anyone who wants a
realtor or a mortgage Broker, who takes them seriously, cares that you, the client, gets exactly the
home you are looking for rather than quickly trying to "sell" you for a commission.
We also loved the fact that it was a one stop shop, where he was able to also do our Home Loan,
instead of taking a chance with someone we don’t even know, which translated into big savings for
us since he was already doing the Real Estate, so it really worked in our favor to do the loan and the
Real Estate with the same company, most Realtors we interviewed did not have a clue about Home
Loans and tried to refer us to someone else. John has both licenses and was completely
knowledgeable about all different loan programs available, and was very patient explaining us our
We can't say enough wonderful things about John Estrada and The Montana Realty & Home Loans
Team. A++!! We LOVE OUR HOME!
