John did an excellent job assisting me with purchasing a home in Baltimore. As a first-time buyer, I was new to the process and in need of serious guidance on the ins and outs of buying. John helped me in my search for several months as my preferences shifted and helped me understand the market in the neighborhoods I was considering in Baltimore City. He is a skillful agent and a great communicator. He did a great job of keeping me in the loop about and thoroughly explaining each step of the process, from identifying key elements of the right home, to submitting an offer, to the closing process. When I finally found my home, the transaction process from offer to closing was seamless. I would highly recommend John Maranto for anyone buying or selling a home in the Baltimore area!
