My clients came up with the phrase “The John Mentis Experience.”  Working with me, they felt educated, heard, taken care of, and well-represented. Helping clients make informed decisions by understanding the impact of their choices is my focus. Communication, honesty, knowledge, and a bit of humor are the keys to my success. Clients are so satisfied that they buy, sell, and buy again with me, as well as refer their friends and family. For me, it’s more than a transaction. It’s personal. It’s about getting to understand the client to get the best results possible.





Doing anything for the first time can be scary and buying or selling a home is no different. I’ll help you understand the big picture as well as lead you through the process step-by-step so you feel in control of your transaction and that you have strong support at your side. It can feel like a maze, but I’ve successfully led plenty of clients through it.



We went into this expecting to find something that would be workable, but unfortunately the state of the market pushed us back to renting. We really (reallyyy) appreciate the effort you went through to find us something... We will speak soon in the future, and thank you for being honest and direct, we really do appreciate it, it made a huge difference and we look forward to working with you again; frankly I would not recommend anyone in this area but you given our experiences looking at properties.

We had the best experience possible working with John Mentis when buying our home. The process of buying a home can be rather daunting and stressful, but John was a fountain of information, insight, and humor. He guided us through every step of the way with great care and attention to detail. Easy to communicate with, he accommodated our last-minute trips from out of state and was always incredibly responsive, professional, and prepared. It was a delight working with John, and we cannot recommend him highly enough.

John Mentis was a great agent. My wife and I couldn't be happier a friend recommended him to us.  John was very attentive and was great explaining all the details of the process. He was also really fun to go through the process with. We would absolutely use John again if we buy or sell a new home.

There are plenty of websites that promise you an instant valuation of your home. The problem is they are based on simple data like size, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, lot size, etc. They’re formulaic. There’s no credit for condition or location or schools, etc. – things about which we know buyers care and for which they may pay more or less than the average. Let me know the particulars of your home and I’ll send you a rough idea of your home’s value as a starting point for a discussion on what your home may actually sell (and appraise) for in today’s market.
