To whom it may concern:I am delighted to provide this letter of reference for John Colannino as a licensed real estatebroker. John handled the sale of a woodlot in Maine for me. As I had inherited the propertyI did not know much about it, including how to access it properly, but John handled everythingin a manner that was efficient and painless for me. He scouted it and set a proper price, asjudged by the assortment of bids that he was able to attract, including one full price offer.Throughout the process he kept me informed and answered all of my questions quickly andaccurately. He could not have been more helpful.I think there are several types of real estate agents. Some try to make the quickest sale withthe least effort, while others see their role as an advisor and advocate for their clients. Johnis in the latter category. He sees the big picture and builds relationships with his clientsrather than going for quick sales. He strives for excellence and quality rather than the quickand easy. He listened to all of my concerns and provided proper pushback or perspectivewhen needed.Even after the sale, John has been a huge resource to me. When I needed help getting aforester to do a small job for me on another property, John connected me with the forestersin his company. But beyond that, and this is typical of him, he got involved as an advocate forme to urge them to help me out. There is no doubt he would help me with whatever I mightask of him in the future.I would give John the highest possible rating.If the reader should require any further information, feel free to contact me at :[email protected],Rick Boyce - Rick Boyce
I have worked with John Colannino for almost a year now and can state with certainty that he is themost hard working and honest broker I have ever worked with. He found the kind of property I waslooking for, pushed through the acquisition, followed up on all issues. He helped me find all theprofessionals; he even marked trails so we could access the sites. I have invested in real estate for30 years and have never worked with someone who went so far beyond the normal scope of work.He becomes a teammate. I can’t thank him enough.Gene Lefevre - Gene Lefevre

"John is an excellent agent and partner to help in finding your land and/or home. He is swift to respond and provides excellent insight and advice to areas you may not have in mind when going into the process. We were looking for a property with a large amount of land, and his understanding of forestry was an enormous asset when assessing the land and the possibilities that it can provide. I highly recommend John!"Thanks so much!- Alex - Alex
