More About Me

I provide added value and expertise

I was a general contractor for many years. I also worked as a mortgage broker. For over 20 years, I've bought, sold and managed over a dozen of my own properties. Today, I am a Managing Real Estate Broker and a designated Senior Real Estate Specialist. This broad background allows me a unique perspective in terms of evaluating properties and understanding the home buying, selling and financing processes. Whether you want to buy your dream home or sell your existing one, my background and knowledge will help guide you to a successful transaction. I also work with investors and do parcel assemblage and land acquisition for the development of new homes.

My goal is to help people and I'd like to earn your business

My motto in serving people has always been: "you say jump, I say how high!" It's this attitude and level of commitment that clearly brings the results that this business demands. I bring expertise, years of experience and a "can do" attitude. I work with a licensed assistant, Anne Millman, to ensure that all your real estate needs are taken care of. As an added bonus we offer staging assistance when you list your home with us. John Lough and Anne Millman can be reached at 206-387-5777.

I work by referrals

SATISFIED BUYER: "Since my circumstances were complex John demonstrated expertise in navigating all the formidable paper work as well as the negotiating process with our sellers. His highest regard was protecting my financial interest and investment. He also worked closely with our lender, so there were minimal delays. One very positive aspect of working with John is that he is also very knowledgeable about home construction and remodeling. A valuable asset when searching for the right home." - Annette 4/21/11
