Although we first thought we could go through this alone, there's so much more to buying a house than looking at listings online. We would have never been able to see nearly 60 houses and spend 5 weekends searching if not for John. His help, knowledge, and advice made gave us peace of mind and hope. He stayed on top of things and was very flexible, very patient, and very prompt.

John did a great job of returning our emails and phone calls. He always kept us informed and did his best to understand our needs instead of just trying to get us in a house.

We enjoyed seeing so many houses with John because he was fun and witty. He was straight forward about positives and negatives all the time!

John Hilyard has proven himself to be an exemplary partner in finding our new home. From the first Sunday he answered his phone to the one day notices we gave to see 20 homes. John has been nothing but professional. He listened to our questions and gave answers that helped us to pick first the right city to live in and then the right home for us.

Working with John was great! He was quick at responding to questions and was very knowledgeable! He also had a 'guy' to help answer questions he couldn't!

Being that this was our fifth home purchased in sixteen years, it was truly a breathe of fresh air to work with a group that was not out to just "make a sale". Our agent (John Hilyard) was on top of his game, he was always ready, willing, and able to show us a home, even if we called last minute. 

What I found to be a great quality in our agent was that John would take time to point out things that were both good and bad with respects to the home, this quality is not the norm in the world of sales these days.

John could have easily sat back and said nothing, or even encouraged us to buy for he sake of buying. For that I can say that I (we) have nothing but great things to say about John and the Victoria's team and we will continue to praise and refer anyone we know who is looking to buy a home in this area.

Our experience was like none other, I'd just wish that I would've found this team sooner. Thank you.

Working with John Hilyard was the best decision we made as first time home buyers. He guided us through the process step by step and helped us find our dream home. Even in a difficult market, John was able to stay on top of the available inventory and got us in to our home before others had the chance. We are going to have many years in our home thanks to John's helpfulness and effort!

After contracting with another agency and having a poor experience we contracted John Hilyard at Danberry. John was immediately helpful, responsive and shared a genuine interest in out needs. I would definitely recommend Danberry and John Hilyard. Thank you for your help.
