John lives in Santa Barbara with his wife Josie, their 5 year old son, 3 year old daughter and 2 rescue dogs. If he’s not working on the weekend you can usually find him cruising town in the family’s yellow 1948 Ford hot rod convertible.

Thank you again. You exceeded our expectations in listing and selling our home. It was more like dealing with a friend than with a realtor.

There were nervous feelings when we were selling a home for the first time. Would we be able to sell as quickly as we want? Would we get the price we want? Our first meeting with John McKain laid those fears to rest as he quickly set about thoroughly understanding our needs and motivations and worked with us to determine a strategy to best satisfy those objectives. We had good discourse before agreeing on a pricing strategy designed to spark immediate interest. Within days we had multiple offers to choose from and had selected a buyer we felt comfortable with, again after careful deliberation with John about how to best evaluate the relative merits of each offer. Not long after, we closed the sale. We are really happy about how the whole process worked out and thank John for his informed guidance. We will definitely work with him again.
I'm in my dream home, and John was instrumental in the process! The house had 7 offers the first day on the market, and with John's guidance, I got it! He made a stressful process easy, fun and successful.

We could not have imagined buying our first home without John especially given that it was a short sale. Throughout the entire process, John was always available for our questions, provided great advice, kept us informed and absolutely never pressured us in any way. We found his expertise and knowledge of the real estate market to be invaluable.
I have owned and built 8 houses. I have worked all over the globe as a VP of Marketing. I have very high expectations in sales pitches, spoken delivery, digital, and print, as well as photography. John McKain exceeded my expectations. The stager (which was included) was great and offered some great design changes. The photographer was spot on. John delivered everything he said he would on the negotiations, as well as the deal itself. He sold my house in five days and I could not be happier. John is A+ in my book.

My wife and I cannot thank you enough for the incredible respect, devotion, creativity and salesmanship you brought to our home sales process. Your professionalism and dedication to meeting our needs were unmatched. As you are well aware we interviewed many Realtors and you approached the sale of our home from a completely different perspective. An approach that would literally make our home stand out from the others and be shown as a "one of a kind". Your positive approach to positioning our property within the market gave us reason to believe in the potential strong sale of our home. Because we were all aligned on how we were going to go to market we were able to create a customized marketing approach. As a result we received multiple offers within days - truly an amazing position to be in.

We had an exceptional experience with John McKain. He is professional, responsive, and most importantly to us, he possesses a great deal of integrity. John did everything from show us houses with a just-broken leg to helping us find contractors for our newly purchased house. He provides tremendous service. We have no hesitation in recommending John, and in fact have done so to our closest friends and family.
Marc & Marg
We interviewed several agents before selecting John McKain to represent us with the sale of our home. John gave us good advice on home pricing, timing, and staging strategy. Based on John’s knowledge and thorough research of home values in our neighborhood, he quoted a target list price that was $50K-75K higher than other agents did. As a result, we received multiple offers within the first week of listing our home, and accepted an offer that was slightly above our asking price. If you want to sell your home quickly and get the best price, we highly recommend John.

We were looking for a broker that was easy to work with and had a solid understanding of the current real estate market. John is not only extremely personable he also has extensive knowledge of the local real estate market acting above and beyond the call of duty. John worked around our schedule (nights & weekends), facilitated multiple showings over a few months, was always on time and maintained an upbeat attitude. When it came time to put an offer on a house, John was a shrewd and savvy negotiator. He made our specific needs a priority in getting the deal done and was certain all of our questions were answered. I would highly recommend utilizing John for all of your real estate needs.
