John Maisel - Testimonials

Initially, I was going to rent my home with Active Agent Realty, however, I was having significant problems switching to renters insurance due to having filed and repaired a sinkhole claim 12 years prior.

I went to John expecting to have difficulty selling but within 2 weeks a buyer was found, negotiated, and closing date set. He was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and professional in every way. I highly recommend him!

"John made every aspect of buying our home a great experience, from showing us properties to recommending inspections and what to look for, to reminding us to turn on our utilities, to a smooth, hassle-free closing.

He was professional, very helpful, friendly and patient. We would highly recommend him! He is truly a real estate expert."


"I am so delighted that John Maisel was our real estate agent during our house buying experience.

John helped my husband and I, from another state, purchase and close our home we now live in. He and his company were always ahead of schedule in notifying us of important dates and deadlines. John was very knowledgeable about the area we purchased in. I am delighted to add John to a list of people who I call friends."

"I told him [John] what I was looking for and he found me exactly what we wanted.

Bought the house over FaceTime from NY. Closed and moved within a month. The experience was an incredibly one. Very trustworthy!"


John and his staff made the sale of my home as effortless as possible for me!

I appreciated his professionalism as he touched base with me regularly and answered my questions.


This company is the best real estate company I have ever done business with.

I have done business with many, going back into the early ’70s. Going to the office, I was always greeted with a friendly staff member and my concern was addressed appropriately. It was so comfortable and so nice to be in a room that had a big screen to visually go over the contract and details of the property. The drone presentation that John put together was so nice and made you feel like you were physically there. I was especially impressed that John Maisel met me at the title company to close escrow and made sure that everything was satisfactory. They have moved to a new location and of course, I already have been there to check it out. No question asked, I will definitely use them again next time.


I've had the distinct pleasure of working with John Maisel as my realtor.

His professionalism and dedication to helping me get the house in selling order and paperwork completed in a timely manner was done in a patient and clear manner. His ability in listening to what I expected in the sale of this villa and clarifying issues in an easy to understand manner, made this all doable. He responded to all texts, emails, and messages in short order. When asked, he even contacted my son by phone for more clarification for me. I truly felt he always had MY best interest in mind. I cannot say more clearly, that he truly was someone who made my life easier at a very difficult time for me. THANK YOU JOHN!

We were so fortunate to have found John Maisel when we moved to Florida.

As our Realtor, he helped us find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. He was patient as we traveled all across Central Florida to look at homes over several months and cautioned us about making unreasonable offers when we fell too quickly for overpriced homes. In short, he was always on our side working to make our house purchase as simple and successful as possible. The best part about working with John was that he was always more focused on answering our questions, giving us good advice, and finding homes that met our needs for our family than he was on closing a deal. We would definitely recommend him to anyone.


John has been our go-to realty resource ever since we started, over 2 years ago, getting serious about moving to Florida.

During that first visit he set up several showings of houses that met our criteria. Since then, he has sent us email updates several times each week to keep us informed of what's on the market. When we sold our home in RI in March and came down to FL, again John took us under his wing. 1 He showed us many great houses, patiently answered our numerous questions and expertly guided us through the house buying process. He has always been just a phone call away, generous with his time and wise advice. We wholeheartedly recommend John Maisel to be your go-to realty resource.


Make selling a house easy!

!! John and his team were a big help with my home listing. Kept us well informed during the process from beginning to end. We sold our house in just a few days after listing with Active Agent Reality!!! I highly recommend John and his team.


"John was exceptional!

We had actually used another realtor on a previous trip that only wanted to show her listings. John was a real trooper, showing us EVERYTHING we wanted to see and pointing out good and bad. Best ever realtor!"


"We went back to John Maisel to sell our house, because he had the listing and showed us the house when we bought it.

We were very happy with his services both times!"


Great response.

I contacted John to list an unoccupied piece of property in Citrus County, FL. The listing, marketing, and sale were completed quickly. I'm very satisfied.


Kept us informed about new listings that we would be interested in, that were in our price range.

Was available to quickly answer questions. Was very professional and easy to work with in purchasing our home before and after the sale.
