Because of his knowledge of the Clover Hill Community, John gave us great guidance on pricing and preparing our house for sale.

He was accessible and responsive throughout the process and consequently made our experience easy and successful. We would highly recommend John!

"We felt we were in good hands with true professionals and even though our sale was relatively easy, we know real estate can be fraught with so many unexpected complications.

Truly this was the quickest and smoothest sale we could have imagined and we felt very good about the price.”

Clover Hill Neighbor Seller of 8101 Ashford Ct.

We listed our home in Clover Hill III with John in the spring of 2023.

We couldn't be happier with the outcome or the process. John was very knowledgeable about the market and the neighborhood. He gave us an assessment of what we could ask for, helped with staging and arranged for wonderful photos of our home. We never felt pressured and were comfortable that he was working to get us the best possible outcome. We sold our house in less than a week for more than we were asking! We'd definitely recommend John to anyone in Clover Hill.

"John helped us find our new home in a hot challenging market! We have used him to both sell and buy a home. We were able to sell our home in literally one day and received an offer over asking price with his help. Very easy to work and highly recommend him for all of your real estate needs!"

"As a first time home buyer from (4 hours) out of state, John hesitantly approached my boyfriend and I after we left a model home in Frederick asking if we were already working with a realtor since he saw we were not with anyone. We couldn't have been more grateful for his forward and direct approach in asking us this question which accurately describes his work ethic and ability to push boundaries (a characteristic we love) in this very difficult and challenging housing market today. From the start of our search to closing day, John Heydon made us feel comfortable even when things became uncomfortable. He over-explained the home-buying process and terminology, a helpful thing for us since we had no clue what to expect. He was also extremely responsive to texts, phone calls, and emails. I would choose him as our realtor over and over again if we are ever in the market for another home in the future. He made our first home-buying experience a pleasantly memorable one and I have no doubt others who have had his assistance feel the same."

"We reached out to John Summer of 2020 because we were "just looking" at a home that popped on the market in our dream area. We were unable to see that home because it sold so fast and this scenario repeated itself a few times. John was aggressive about getting appointments but our desired area and price range was extremely competitive.In this sellers market, we knew if we were to get serious about moving we would have to sell our home first but we just loved our current home that we were uneasy about selling before knowing where we were going. John was so wonderful and didn't pressure us at all to sell- but rather checked in whenever something came up. I was getting worried that we were burdensome and didn't want to string him along but John wasn't phased and was patient with us.In November of 2020 (after telling John we just weren't ready to sell our home) a home close to our dream area fell into our price range and popped up on our listing email that John sent us. I impulsively emailed him "we aren't OMG I love this house but it might be worth looking at". That day he made an appointment to see the house. I rolled up to the house (without my husband because he got held over at work) with my 3 kids up this insane driveway and met John (who was perfectly early) . We were greeted by a dog on the front porch and determined that he seemed nice enough (John took the lead) and toured the home and property. As I was not overly sold via the listing photos, viewing the home was a different story. John and I both looked at each other once we got outside and knew this house might just be the "one". My husband was able to get off work and John graciously waited for him an additional hour and toured the property with him again. What a great guy! After taking up John's whole afternoon, he then came over to our house to access the property. This was the first time he came to our house - that's how gun-shy we were. We didn't even want our agent to see our home until were serious about putting an offer in on another. John was extremely optimistic that he could sell our home fast and at a price that we were super excited about. Things moved fast - we put a contingent offer in on the new place - it was accepted thanks to John's hard work. We had a week to get our house photo and showing ready and on the market and through John's guidance and suggestions we made that deadline and listed the house the week of Thanksgiving. Appointments came rolling in and John made every effort to meet buyer's agents at our home. We had plenty of warning to leave for a showing and after just 4 days on the market - we had an incredible offer! Through the inspections and appraisals - John was incredible. Specifically the appraisal for selling our home. I honestly believe if he wasn't there to meet with the appraiser and present aggressive comps, things might not have gone as smoothly (as we got above asking price for the home). That's the difference between John and other Agents. He doesn't just put up a sign and a listing - he actively SELLS your home. He is THERE taking agents and buyers through, answering questions and overcoming objections. There are many things that can go wrong when you do a contingent sale but John stayed the course, took things a day at a time and helped us as first time home sellers navigate the process. Settlement day was a breeze for both properties and I can 100% say it was because of John setting the tone for a positive experience."

"This has been a long time coming. But John Heydon is a champ. He has to be Frederick’s best kept secret. I can’t tell you how great it was to work with him, and witness the dedication he showed when selling my home in PG county. The man has nerves of steel and will see a deal through to the end, and sometimes that end is telling buyers to get their act together or we’re walking. (We walked away and found a way better buyer with John’s help) I wish I could recount all of the crazy situations John encountered when selling my home, but the only way you’ll find out is if you stop by Macintosh and ask him. If you are seriously considering moving to Frederick, seriously consider asking John to sell your home."

"John was beyond helpful and professional as he helped us purchase our first home. My wife and I were not only first time home buyers, but we were also new to the area. John was very knowledgeable about the area and about home construction. After he helped us find the perfect home, he helped us negotiate and win against multiple competitive offers. I cannot recommend John enough. *most importantly, he spent 6 out of 7 consecutive weekends with us as we looked for a home and always answered the phone!*"

"John is a great agent to work with. He’s calm and collected which is reassuring in a high stress time. John will be dedicate to the purchase or sale of your home as if it’s his only project. We enjoyed working with John and his team at Macintosh."
