Dear John and Tyler, Today was the first day I felt as if our house was truly gone. It’s a good feeling, but yet we have wonderful memories. I want to thank you both for making that sale happen. My only regret is that we didn’t know you both a year ago. You were truly a pleasure to work with, always available for our concerns questions and problems. You went beyond and we thank you. Bob and I wish you both the very best in all you do.

Having John represent us with purchasing a Laguna Beach lot was an enjoyable experience. John's many years of real estate experience along with his integrity, and professionalism made our real estate transaction a success. John is an amazing, hard working Realtor that gives 110% to get his clients the best deal. If you want a Realtor who genuinely cares about his clients, look no further. Highly recommend John!

I have used John Stanaland on several transactions and found him to be a true professional. When you call him he responses. He has a casual approach, but never fails to get the job done. When I am dealing with a major investment, buying or selling I want to get what I pay for, with John I do. Look at his adds, watch him in action, that tells it all.

We have worked with John Stanaland over the past 15 years. He has extraordinary insight and knowledge of the coastal luxury real estate market, has represented sellers and buyers with great skill, and has worked tirelessly on behalf of his clients.

Hiring John Stanaland as my agent for the purchase of a beachfront home in Laguna Beach is one of the best business decisions that I have ever made. John has extraordinary knowledge of the Laguna Beach residential real estate market and incomparable talent for assessing the value of properties. He is a creative dealmaker, and his initiative, responsiveness and followup as to every aspect of the transaction exceeded all expectations. He has an extensive network of local contacts to address any issue that might arise during the process of purchasing a home. His vast experience, confidence, command of his field and user-friendliness made what might be a very stressful experience for many buyers absolutely stress free for me. He even provided follow up service for issues that arose after my transaction closed. I could not imagine engaging in another real estate transaction in Laguna Beach without John as my agent.

First of all, I am not in the habit of writing reviews; in fact, I rarely do. But in regards to John Stanaland I felt compelled to share my husband and my experience having him as our realtor. Not only was he incredibly professional and knowledgeable, he listened and took time with us, patiently addressing any concerns that we may have had. And he really knew the market!! In fact, we had broached the idea of a house we thought we might want to look at, and John actually dissuaded us from doing so, stating the history of mudslides in that particular neighborhood. We ended up buying a (different) beautiful home that we absolutely love! But, interestingly enough, six months after we moved into our house , the other house that John had advised us not to pursue, was partially demolished in a mudslide! We can’t recommend John Stanaland highly enough! He is honest, hardworking, and comes from a long lineage of realtors working in this area. Buying (or selling) a new place to live is stressful enough; you really need someone on whom you can depend to walk you through the process. John was there for us every step of the way. We can state with assurance that you will be in good hands when you select John Stanaland to represent you.

Mr. & Mrs. W. H. Farmer

“We have worked with John Stanaland on two transactions. Both were negotiated to our absolute satisfaction and both transactions went flawlessly. John provided assistance in all aspects of the transaction from financing assistance to various vendors to assist our transition into the properties. Most importantly, in working with John and Tyler, we felt that every commitment would be met and were never disappointed. It is rare working with a professional that commits to doing something and then continually surprises when that commitment is completed even faster than anticipated. We can’t wait for our next transaction with John.

Greg Cygan (Montage Villa Owner)

Having run a multi-billion dollar company, my representation on any level is of the utmost importance. John’s professionalism, negotiating skills, work ethic and hands on approach made all the difference. I own numerous properties in and out of the country and John and his team are a notch above the rest. I highly recommend John and The Stanaland Group for any and all Real Estate needs.

John and his team offer professionalism, knowledge and a sales resume that are second to none. Not only do I consider John the best broker in the market for high end luxury real estate, but also a friend.
