“John Parsegian has been our broker for more than 15 years. We first met John when we decided to rent out our townhouse temporarily. John took care of every detail, helping us set the right price, properly marketing our home, vetting all prospective tenants, and advising us on what changes to make. Over the years, John has rented our townhouse several times. Each time, he went above and beyond his responsibilities to make sure our tenants were a good match. We can’t imagine ever working with another agent and owe the success of our rental property to the guidance, perseverance, and expertise of John Parsegian.”
