John Black REALTOR
John offers years of sales and service experience in Vermont - from running his own residential painting company while attending UVM, to a top sales performer for a local television station. He has a passion for working with others, understanding their objectives, and bringing together resources to help clients succeed. One of John’s strengths is knowing that achievements rarely happen in isolation. When it comes to the home buying and selling process, it takes many talented individuals to ensure a smooth transaction. John works diligently to orchestrate the collaboration of those individuals towards one ultimate goal. Working alongside his brother George, the two bring an aspect of family to their real estate business. Deciding to both join the Real Estate industry at the same time, the opportunity to work as a team was a clear and exciting choice. Together they bring a strong background in sales, negotiations, education and training, and an exceptional service record.
John grew up in Stowe as the youngest of six, learning from an early age to be a strong negotiator while recognizing the importance of collaboration for the greater good. In 2008 he dedicated a year to service joining Americorps, volunteering in the Midwest after disastrous flooding and eventually aided in Hurricane Katrina Relief in Mississippi. This experience was instrumental in affirming his belief that being an active member of a community is a necessity to grow personally and profesionally. His volunteerism continued at UVM where he led fellow students and connected with notable organizations such as The Intervale Community Farm, King Street Center's Mentorship Program and UVM.

John went out of his way to be accessible, provide guidance, and do extensive research on the property we bought. We went into the purchase quickly and John was with us every step of the way on our timeline. It was one week from initial call to accepted purchase agreement. The service was above and beyond our expectations.

John and George were more than professional throughout the entire process. From correspondence to general guidance, they were on top of it. They were never pushy, yet guided me to purchasing a home that I am very happy with! The process was streamlined start to finish, and was made very easy and stress free. Any roadblock that we came to, they were able to overcome and kept me informed along the way. I never once felt pressured to buy a home. In fact, I was relieved to have such reliable and professional agents working for me. I cant thank them enough, and plan to highly recommend them for anyone that has real estate needs! Great job boys, and thank you!

Whether you're a first-time home buyer, familiar with the process or selling a home, you couldn't choose a better realtor. His professionalism, personable demeanor and willingness to go the extra mile shows that George stands out above the rest. I've worked with agents both buying and selling real estate and it routinely seemed as though I would do most of the work and the agent would be present only when necessary. They not only listen to what you want to purchase, but actively seeks out recommendations to find you a home, provides market activity updates, comes prepared and well organized with every appointment and make themselves available around your schedule. Without hesitation, I would recommend John & George Black. I was equally impressed with a potential home sale opportunity I offered to George and John Black. Aside from the competitive marketing materials and resources available to sell a home, the detailed market analysis reports and guidance they both brought to the table were well beyond my expectations

We worked with John Black for our purchase and from the very beginning, John was polite, professional, and jumped through hoops to help us through the process. We encountered a lot of issues with the home during this time, and John helped us keep calm through the ups and downs of getting thing done properly, especially since we lived out of state. My entire family and I were on vacation when we first looked at the house, and we over-whelmed him with about a dozen or so different people walking through it, checking things out! He managed this encounter with poise and grace! I'm actually quite saddened that we no longer have weekly chats about the things we need to get resolved that week! He was such a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend John Black and his brother George for any other real estate needs one would have.

John Black provided EXCELLENT service. From the initial contact to follow-up after closing, John was always available and paid very close attention to details. His advice and recommendations were accurate and applicable to my specific needs. All in all, I am very satisfied with John Black as a sales associate and have already recommended him to other buyers.

The idea of buying our first home was terrifying. We had heard all the horror stories about real estate agents only caring about making a sale. That was not the case with John and George. They made it a great experience, they listened to us and never once made us feel pressured. We are now in a home that is perfect for us.
