John Friend DRE# 01923817
Broker/Owner
DRE# 01923817
During his many years appraising properties in the foothills and the valley, he appraised well over 10,000 homes in five Counties. He knows all of Tuolumne, Calaveras and Amador Counties extensively, as well as San Joaquin and Stanislaus Counties. This knowledge of the market in multiple Counties allows John to suggest other similar foothill areas that are similar to where the clients started that have better pricing and/or inventory, and allows him to suggest areas that fit his clients best needs and interests.

“As a Broker who has been in the Industry for 25 years, I am very familiar with the local markets in the Counties we serve, and their many quirks. I love helping people find the property that suits them best, and there is nothing more rewarding to me than a satisfied customer.”
