We were fortunate to have John represent us in the purchase of our home in Malibu. He was there for us every step of the way and guided us through the tangled real estate world. We couldn’t be happier with our home, the price we negotiated & ease of the whole process. We are very grateful to John & appreciate all his hard work.
I was really nervous because I had already found my dream home, but I could only get it by selling my current home FAST. John worked his magic which was a combination of knowing the neighborhood, a great marketing plan, and knowing what we needed to get the placeready to get top dollar. We had it sold in three weeks.
We highly recommend John Hathorn and his team. He impressed us right from the beginning when we were interviewing for an agent. He is deeply knowledgeable about the area and presented us with a thorough an well thought out sales plan. He provided us with very helpful advice as we prepared our house and set the price. We were in a difficult market and it took a number of months to sell the property, and John worked hard for us, holding regular open houses and showings. He checked in with us regularly and he kept us apprised of interested buyers and then worked with us to assess offeres and strageize. He has an open and direct style and was easy ot work with. He also has a great office support team—all knowledgable and responsive professionals. Again he gets our highest recommendation.
This is our 3rd transaction with John Hathorn representing us and this time it was on an income property. John and his team added tremendous value to the transaction-he truly goes the extra mile. From the initial purchase negotiation through the inspection and closing process John’s helpful advice and excelent communication with us was much apprecieated. There is a reason that we consider him out realtor and our friend. He is honest and hard-working. If you are looking for an experienced Realtor don’t hesitate to contact John.
John and his staff recently helped me make my first single-family home purchase in the North of Montana (90402) neighborhood in Santa Monica. I have had lots of challenges with real estate agents in the past, and I must say, John and his staff at Partners Trust were professional, responsive, and knew the process and the area. John and his team focused on getting the deal done, and knew the process and the area. John and his team focused on getting the deal done, and when we closed, were kind enough to lease out my condo. This process was also white glove- they showed the condo, marketed it, helped with performing credit checks, the works! If you are looking for someone who is responsive and professional, with a solid team behind him to help with endless details of purchasing or selling real estate, I would recommend reaching out to John. Tell him Tom G. sent you! 2016 Update: Also purchased 2 apartment building utilizing John’s help.
I've worked with John for over 20 years on multiple transactions, since he helped me sell my first house. John and Pence Hathorn Silver are amazing.John knows his stuff. He is honest and accessible and a wealth of information. He has gone above and beyond, even giving me names of contractors, plumbers, etc. His group - Pence Hathorn Silver is known as the best in their market. They are the go to team and I would highly recommend them any day.
It was great working with [John] last year in selling my property. I had some difficulty letting go but knew then and now that you represented my interest expertly and professionally. And you're a good man. And pleasant to be around.
After unsuccessfully listing our house several years ago, we turned to John Hathorn for advice. We were impressed with his knowledge of the market, his proposed marketing strategy, his negotiating skills, and competence of his team. John gave us outstanding advice on how to prepare the house and was able to access the professional resources we needed to prepare for sale. We listed the house, received multiple offers even before the first open house. It sold in a matter of weeks to a very well qualified buyer.

John Hathorn is a professional in every sense of the word. A professional is defined as a person with great technical expertise in a given field, who conforms to high ethical standards and who exhibits a courteous, conscientious and business-like manner in carrying out his job. We would add to this definition an additional characteristic: a person who cares about and cares for the people he undertakes to serve. John Hathorn helped us sell our home of 40 years. He did so with consummate skill and diligence and heart. In the process, he showed that he cared. In our view, John is truly a professional.
John and his partners have been so incredible to work with. He is up to date on the all the on and ‘off the market’ properties and opportunities. Both my brothers and my sister have had John represent us in multiple purchase and sales buying and selling properties for the last couple of years. He is our official family realtor! He is so precise and personable when it comes to your wants and needs. John and everyone at Pence Hathorn Silver are so on top of things and responsive when it comes to this lengthy and complicated process. John and his team is the only way to go for finding and/or selling a home!
My wife and I bought a house in Santa Monica (escrow just closed) using John Hathorn. He was very knowledgeable, honest, and straightforward. He was very patient (it took about 9 months to find the house we wanted). He and his entire team were very responsive to all of our inquiries and concerns. I would highly recommend John.
John tells me that I am his most productive real estate client of all time, with 17 homes that I've either bought or sold over a period of 20 years. John and his whole team are hardworking and honest and they get the job done. Over the years we have become close friends as well and I've recommended him to numerous friends in Santa Monica who all feel the same way. I trust John & his team implicitly.
