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 SM who all feel the same way. I trust John & his team implicitly.
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 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 / Partners Trust 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!
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.

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.
It was great working with [John] last year in selling my property. I had some 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.
