    “Dear J & J, The lovely Tiffany vase arrived yesterday. Thanks for the kindness. Again I tell you how grateful I am for your professionalism and making the closure on Michael’s house such a streamlined process for me. It went far to make a difficult situation much less stressful, and I appreciate all you have done.”

  • “John and his office were tremendous to work with, both in selling my old home and buying my new one. John is forthright, warm, quite knowledgeable about market trends, and very skilled in the art of negotiation. He and his staff were always there to respond to my questions, look at properties, make calls on my behalf, and generally field my anxiety that came with such life altering decisions. I wouldn’t have wanted to go through the process with anyone else!”

  • “On behalf of our entire family, I would like to thank John and Jill Duerler for all of their help in navigating the purchase of our new home. It was a true pleasure working with them along with the entire Hancock Homes Team. We are very grateful for all of the support we received. Thank you for welcoming us to the neighborhood – we hope to see you around often!”

  • “John Duerler and his team are top-notch real estate agents.  They are the best, especially in the Hancock Park area where they know every nook and cranny of this prestigious neighborhood.  I was especially impressed with John’s tactical insights and ability to get the deal going.   His team is fantastic, and I look forward to doing business with them again.  Plus they are all nice people, and I like seeing how they are very involved in supporting the community.  I recommend Hancock Homes to anyone with real estate needs.”

  • “John Duerler helped us find our very first home… and our second home!  He also sold our home in record time for over our asking price. Just as important to us, John and his team are really nice to work with.  Everyone at Hancock Homes is so friendly and detail oriented, it made our home purchase and sale process easy.  Whether you are buying or selling, we strongly recommend John and the Hancock Homes team.”

  • “What in the world can I say! A year and a half ago, you leased my house for well over the asking price, and recently, followed up with a sale for more than I ever expected! Your personality, emphasis on relationships, market instincts, patience, excellent communication, and focus on getting the job done, all combine to serve your clients well.  A special thank you to your Hancock Homes Team. They complement you well. Their exceptional service, efficiency, and friendliness, in addition to your own, helped me to remain calm and confident during the process. I have wonderful memories of this entire experience. I look forward to calling upon you again, if my life returns me to Los Angeles.”

  • “Hancock Homes provided me with a top-notch marketing campaign; seamlessly combining traditional marketing strategies with digital marketing tactics and John’s own, truly innovative, ‘think-outside-the box’ approach to expose my listing to the broadest and most appropriate audience. After only a few months of targeted marketing, we nailed down a deal and the sale closed without a hitch 1 week ahead of schedule! Now, I am told, my property holds title as the 5th highest SOLD price ever in Hancock Park. Deals of this size and nature don’t typically proceed quite so smoothly and I attribute the lack of ‘drama’ to John’s negotiating skills and his ability to read people. In short, the end result was so much more than a successful sale; it was actually an enjoyable experience! I can say without hesitation that it is my honor to pass along my highest recommendations of John and his team at Hancock Homes Realty.”

  • “Don’t let the laid back attitude fool you – John is as smart as they come.  His disarming demeanor is a ploy — he’s very savvy.  Jill is John’s secret weapon – she’s a lawyer, so you get the added value of a legal perspective on all issues, but she’s also a fantastic home designer, organization specialist, and stress-management therapist. I wanted a frank opinion from John as to what I could do to maximize the sale value of our home.  John and Jill knew exactly what was selling and advised us accordingly.  We took their advice – and it really paid off.  For our $25,000 investment in renovations – paint colors, landscaping, windows – we raised the sale value more than $135,000.  To top it off, HGTV wanted to feature the renovated home in a “curb appeal” special!  Many of the things John and Jill recommended that we do were things we would never have thought of, or things that we thought we had already adequately addressed.  They know what they are doing and are true professionals.”

  • “We signed on a Friday, he listed on a Saturday, and he held an open house on Sunday and brought me multiple offers on Monday.  A seller’s dream…”
