John Duffy - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

"I have known John Duffy for years.

He was my first call when we decided to look for a home in the Grand Junction area. He was quick to set up showings and knowledgeable about the properties he showed us. He knows the area very well. We found a house that is perfect for us and we closed and moved inside 2 months. John's best characteristics are, I think, honesty and credibility. His heart is in his work. Janie is the same and fun to work with."

Barbara CLark

"John was great, Very helpful and very knowledgeable.

I was amazed at how he got everything done for us, he was definitely on top of everything. We would certainly use John again and would highly recommend him to everyone. We had a great experience with John, plus he’s a very nice guy!"

Sue Altergott

John help us greatly in buying a larger home here in Grand Junction, then selling our previous home.

He was extremely knowledgeable about the local market, very responsive to our priorities in terms of budget and desired features, and was instrumental in moving quickly when the right home became  available. He was persistent and positive with the sale of our prior home during a slow time in the market. He guidance with the negotiation and closing processes was invaluable. I cannot recommend him more highly. 

Gary Lake

John has been very helpful for us to find and purchase our new home.

We were out of town buyers, he patiently showed us around town, highlighted pros and cons of different neighborhoods. We looked at many potential homes, which was difficult task in a tight market. When we were back at home, he visited some potential homes and we had very informative remote walk throughs. He highlighted not only the pros, but also the cons, especially mechanical issues with older houses. Once we eventually found our home, he negotiated the sale effectively, we had a signed contract in a few hours. He kept investigating the possible issues, HOA rules, solutions and arranged for us a remote closing. Once we had the home and we were still at our old place, he arranged floor work, complete painting of the house. He took care of items that needed to be fixed, so once we moved in, we had a "new" home. He was very helpful for us, highly recommend his services.

Peter & Aniko Varnai

John Duffy is very knowledgeable, professional, personable, and courteous.

He asked questions about what type of home I wanted, showed me the homes I wanted to see, and brought me other listings that were targeted to what I had told him and in my price range. He is very familiar with the area and  the market, so the whole process from offer to closing was very smooth. I would definitely recommend him. 


John’s strengths are being really detailed, and knowing how to filter viewings, while still recognizing how much flexibility buyers may need.

"We were planning on building a house.

We had purchased a lot, and hired a builder when my husband had to have emergency surgery. We decided we needed to buy a house instead. John and Janie found us a house we could afford in a lovely area that we love when the market was very challenging, and our offer was successful. John and Janie then successfully sold our lot when other lots were languishing on the market. They are very knowledgeable about the Grand Valley, and know how to structure an offer so it is accepted. They are both very responsive. We recommend them very highly."

John Duffy is an excellent realtor who will help his clients find the home they need or market their current home.

I first met him during an open house he was having for one of his clients. His genuine approach, as well as a highly professional manner in speaking with me about his clients house  impressed me. I called him the next day and asked him to be my realtor during my house search. I have already recommended him to several friends and colleagues because of his honesty and integrity and positive attitude.


John sold 2 homes for us.

Both homes closed inside of 45 days of listing. He came with qualified buyers. Both homes closed above list price. Exceeding our expectations. We were informed of ongoing deadlines and helped us meet them.

Pat Schroeder

John Duffy never gave up on us.

We had a rather unique situation and the plans to build, remodel, tear down and replace or to buy new changed daily. Over the course of years John continued to send to us properties that he knew we would be interested in. We thought we had made a decision to build  new and John sent us one more property that ended up being the one. I pinch myself on a daily basis because I am so amazed at the property that John Duffy found for us. The offer that he made to the seller is THE reason that the seller chose my family over other prospective buyers. Oh and John than sold my previous home in 3 days! Thanks, Linda Findley

Linda Findley

John Duffy went above and beyond our expectations to close on the property we sold, as well as finding a property to buy.

! We greatly appreciate the work he did.

Leslie A McAninch

John Duffy worked with us through several different phases of our home search.

He was very helpful and understanding through all my mind changes. He is very pleasant and enjoyable to work with.

DonnaHam 2000

John's knowledge of the current market, and where my property was situated in that market, led to a speedy sale, and at a price that worked for both myself and for the buyer.

John kept me updated on leads/showings and feedback, and went an extra mile with my listing. John treated my modest  listing as if it was a half million dollar property, and the results were evident in the sale. I highly recommend John to anyone who is selling or buying in the area.

Joanne Harrison

John Duffy is the BEST.

He sold a home for us back in about 2013 and was a delight to work with. Then in 2018 we contacted him as I wanted to possibly purchase a home again in the Grand Junction area and John was more than willing to take the time to locate and show us some homes. Unfortunately, we had to cancel our plans at that time and I assured John Duffy, if and when we were able to try again he would be the person we would contact. What a pleasant experience he provided in locating and closing the deal on the house we chose.

Beverly Tillotson

Janie and John were really involved in orienting us and to try to find the right house that we will like.

They were always available, made the entire process as smooth as possible. We are still in contact even after the closing that we did remotely, as we only will move to the house in a few month. They are as helpful as it can be, we are very fortunate that we work with them.

Aniko Varnai

We spent an entire year house hunting in Grand Junction and John Duffy never gave up on our quest for our perfect spot.

Here is the rare professional who is honest, hardworking, and goes above and beyond the usual to understand and respond to what you want and need. Not incidentally, we enjoyed our  long process and now live in a home that suits us perfectly. We’ll always be grateful to John for this and recommend him wholeheartedly.

Jodie Kav

Great experience.

John Duffy is attentive to detail and quick to respond. Consistently goes above and beyond and would recommend to anyone in the market for buying or selling a house.

J Emberger

John Duffy did a fantastic job at getting us into the perfect home, in a difficult market, within 30 days.

He met us at all times of the day to look at homes we wanted to see, not just ones he suggested. He did a great job.

Kaley Wright

John is knowledgable, honest and responsive.

I would reccomend John to anyone buying or selling a home in the Grand Valley. I used John for selling my home and purchasing a new one.

Gary Knisely

"John and his wife made our home buying process truly a wonderful and easy experience.

Working with them is like having a friend in the business. They went above and beyond to show homes that fit our schedule. I felt like anytime I contacted them with a question, they immediately had the answer or they would put me in touch with the local experts that knew the answer. ...and when it came time to close the deal, John is masterful at his approach to make sure you get the absolute best bang for your buck. We felt really lucky and honored to be represented by John throughout our purchase. I would highly recommend him! Five stars!!!"

Don Wilson

John is an outstanding Real Estate Professional!

I first contacted John back in 2010, when I lived in Wisconsin. My family and I were relocating for my job to Grand Junction, CO. John went above and beyond to help my family find a new home. Given, we were unfamiliar with Mesa County, John took us  in search of our home from one end of the county to the other without any pressure to make a hasty purchase. John took the time to understand our families needs and worked hard to find us a home. After a couple of months, John found us the perfect home for our family in a wonderful location!! Now, seven years later, John assisted me again by locating a property for my non-profit agency!! It is the perfect property in the perfect location and our business is thriving beyond expectations. I highly recommend John Duffy and personally would not go to any other realtor. 

tanya skalecki35

John was extremely hardworking and stayed with me through the 'thick and thin'!

I would highly recommend him to others and will seek him out for future purchases.


When I made the decision to downsize, John listed my house and it sold in days!

Then he showed homes to me which met my criteria, and persisted until the perfect one became available. He was always available to answer my questions and guide me through the maze of details, even assisting me in my  move. I have recommended him to several friends and will continue to do so.


Very knowledgeable and patient.

Would use John again if I needed a realtor again! He showed me multiple homes and then showed many of them again to my wife and me. Very courteous and professional at all times. Answered all of my many questions. We had not purchased a home in over 25 years, so  much had changed since then in the process of buying a house. 


John Duffy went above and beyond to find my new home.

He worked diligently, treating me and my family with the utmost respect and honor! John is very knowledgeable about the area and was very conscientious about what was important in a home for us. It was an absolute pleasure working with Mr.  Duffy 

S. Tyler

John goes above and beyond and is someone you can count on for all your real estate needs.

He made our buying a home experience very easy. He has also sold two houses for us. He is a person of integrity and always looks out for your best interest.

Jason Emberger

John was very helpful to us as we made decisions about when and how to list our home.

We had a specific timetable for the sale and his local knowledge helped us nail down just the right timing and price point. Our home sold at the price we’d hoped for and at the right time for our needs. John’s  advice was accurate and his attitude was always upbeat and supportive.


Awesome realtor!

!! Went above and beyond to ensure my kids and I had the right home for us. Even after we bought our home he checked to ensure all is well; thanks John

John Caron

John went above and beyond our expectations.

He is very professional, taking care of both parties to the transaction. He explained and walked with the buyer of our property, who was new to real estate transactions, each step of the way. We would highly recommend John for any of your real estate  needs.

Leslie & Randy M

John duffy did an excellent job.

He helped us in everyway possible and went above and beyond!

Michael Montes

This is the second time we have used John Duffy for our real estate needs and we are more impressed with how he walked us through the sale of my Dad’s house than when he helped us find our house here in Grand Junction.

He really gets things rolling with his hard work ethic and is a high character guy.

Timothy Lewis

John is very knowledgeable and very professional.

He helped us find just the right place, and we will definitely use him should we decide to move. Can't recommend him enough!!


John Duffy was extremely helpful.

Two years ago he took the time to show me a variety of houses knowing that I really was not prepared to purchase at that time. That was impressive! His was the first name that came to mind when I was ready to be serious about buying a house. He was “Johnny on the Spot” (no pun intended) when I called to let him know that, once again, I wanted to look for a house. I felt that he was trustworthy, so did not even make the trip from California to Grand Junction to personally look at the house I purchased. He answered all my questions and even suggested things that I hadn’t known to ask. John made this a completely great home-buying experience!

Sharon Rosenwald

You cannot go wrong when you team up with John.

He walks you through the sales process, goes above and beyond the call of duty. Whether buying or selling you can count on John's knowledge, patience and understanding.

Mark Dyer

John helped sell my mother's home.

I live out of state which left him to handle all of the legwork. He coordinated with contractors when repairs had to be made and basically made everything very easy for me. He went the extra mile on several occasions to help my mother through the sale which  while necessary wasn't what she wanted. I would highly recommend considering John when you are ready to sell or purchase a home. 

Denise Slane

Excellent Agent!

They went above and beyond to advertise and showcase my home not just two buyers but other Realtors. My house was under contract in two days. They communicated very well and were there every step of the way. I felt like I was being treated like family and not just another client!!!  I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to sell or buy a house

Tammy Haskin

John was a pleasure to work with.

Listens to what we were looking for and advised well on what to look for or avoid. We had a bad experience with a seller who failed to disclose problems with the foundation. John went out of his way to help us with inspections and resolutions. When it came down to  a choice between walking away or buying he was not pushing for a buy decision even though he spent a lot of extra time not expected from a realtor. I wholeheartedly would recommend him to anyone.

Bruno Reich

Not only is John a great realtor, he is a great person.

He went above and beyond to help me through the selling and buying process. He made the whole process as stress-less as possible. He knows his stuff, keeps you informed and is always ready to find answers and solutions. John has a wonderful  personality. House hunting with John was fun, not stressful. I would recommend John to everyone. 


In purchasing this property we ran into roadblock after roadblock.

John would give me a pep talk from time to time, as I really liked the property. My wife was onboard all along.. At one point I was ready to give up and my wife and John persuaded me to go one more lap. I did, and we now own a  wonderful, fun, picturesque piece of property. You need John Duffy on your side!!


With John’s guidance and expertise, we were able to find exactly what we were looking for.

He was accessible and answered every question we had. We knew that we could trust him fully as he negotiated with the selling agent. Our interests were well represented and the whole process went smoothly and  efficiently

D. Galyona

John Duffy is the best professional we have ever worked with.

His creativity and diligence got the result we needed when selling a unique property. He will be our choice for sure the next time we need a Real Estate Pro. There are many fine agents in this valley, but you won't find a better one than  John Duffy 


"My wife and I moved to Grand Junction in 2010.

We were first-time homebuyers, both of us busy professionals with a lot on our plates as we settled into new jobs. John was recommended to us by a friend who had used his services. John made the transition and first time buying experience seamless! First, he rented us a house, at a great price, in a quiet, safe neighborhood so we could take a few months to get to know Grand Junction and explore its neighborhoods. The rental was month by month so we could move as soon as we were ready to buy. We found John to be a great listener, with a special capacity for taking our wants and needs and translating them into a range of real housing options. His home tours were concise, but with appropriate attention to detail and explanation when needed. As first time buyers we appreciated his patience and ability to explain the sometimes confusing areas of the real estate world. When we finally found that special house, he got us a great price with extra purchase incentives thrown in. After the sale, he stayed in contact, helped arrange some home maintenance tasks, and made sure that we were settling in. John is well-connected with movers, landscapers, and handymen, and we have always been satisfied with the work of the people that he recommended. And we are return customers. In 2021, after 10 years at that residence, we decided to move in from The Redlands to a more central location, John showed himself to be adept in the crazy, pandemic-driven "point-and-shoot" housing market as well. We had a house in less than a week, and have been extremely happy in our new place. John negotiated great prices all the way around. Once again, he has stayed in contact and helped us with a number of details to complete the move. I expect to be in this home for years to come, but if we ever move in the area again we will certainly be asking John to be our realtor."

Randy C

John was amazing!

Anytime I had a question or concern, he had the answer, prompt and complete. NO guess work with John Duffy and Bray Real Estate. He made this transaction very smooth!

Don Wilson

John is very knowledgable and communicates frequently throughout the process.

Its apparent that he cares for and is respected by his colleagues and associates. Its a pleasure to work with John.

John Duffy & Janie are wonderful Christen folks and we are very pleased with our relationship.

They worked with the selling and buying a downsized new home. They were always there when we needed them.

Bob & Nancy

John has an easy going style.

While negotiations sometimes grow tense in real estate bidding, he manages the disagreements with a relaxed, no pressure attitude. This helps both sides to feel as though they are winners in the outcome. More explicitly, John is a very easy person to work with, even  exceptional when considering our numerous experiences with agents. John Duffy will always be our first choice. 


John helped us with the sale of our late Grandparents estate home in Fruita, CO.

We live in Alaska so the whole process required us to travel back and forth a few times. John not only had the estate sold for asking price within a week of listing, he also went out of his way to help us with all the various tasks we had to accomplish to get the house cleaned out and estate settled. John was friendly, knowledgeable, caring and absolutely a joy to work with. He went out of his way numerous times for us and we can't thank him enough!! Highly recommend John Duffy for any of your real estate needs!!!!!

Bree Pedersen

John was exceptional as our realtor.

He was organized, always on time, knowledgeable of the market, and he had a great sense of humor which lighten the mood when needed. He always returned our phone calls in a timely manner, and he remained positive always saying that we would find just the right  house. We had four delays on the closure of our home in the Denver area which impacted the purchase of the house in Grand Junction. John proved to be a great negotiator and a good problem solver. We would highly recommend John as your realtor. 


John was so nice to work with.

He knew what we were looking for and provided lots of homes to look over. He was always available to answer our question or to set up meetings and home tours. We would definitely work with John again should the need arise

Joseph Lozar

I listed my sisters house who had just passed away.

His expertise and professionalism took all of the stress involved in the selling process off my shoulders and the sale went smoothly. Not only that, I had two offers within days of listing and John was able to get me a full price cash offer and  was able to close within a couple of weeks or so, which he knew was very important to me. I would strongly recommend him. 


John really knows the market and is patient and professional throughout the entire buying process.

He's a good guy and knows his stuff. I will be working with him again in the future should I ever buy or sell a home in Grand Junction.

Sean Burshek

It was a pleasure and honor to work with John and Janie Duffy.

John and Janie were consistent, loyal, honest, and professional throughout this long and challenging process of both selling the home I was living in and buying our new home. I have already recommended John to a friend to assist them in their Real Estate needs, Martin J deBoer

Martin J Deboer

"John was our buyer’s agent when we bought our home in Grand Junction recently, and we couldn’t have been happier working with him.

We were not experts in the process, and John carefully guided us through it. He listened carefully to our description of what we were looking for in a home, brought to our attention well chosen listings to look at, and offered insightful observations when we were looking at the homes. All throughout the process, including during the offer/counteroffer phase, John offered candid and well-thought-out advice that was very valuable. And last but not least, John is very enjoyable to work with. The next time we have a real estate transaction to do in the Grand Junction area, we’ll be asking John to be our Realtor again."

Sara & Dan Friedman

John Duffy was great to work with!

Wendy McMahon

John Duffy really was fantastic!

He made everything very convenient, he came to us if anything needed signed or gone over. Definitely recommend him to anyone!

Heather Wade

John is a true professional from start to finish.

He went above and beyond dealing with the lenders to assure that all our expectations were met. We would highly recommend John to all our friends and family.

Terry Brooks

John and Janie Duffy are the most caring and wonderful people.

I have never met realtors who went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that our old place showed well and was in excellent shape when we sold it. They have helped us tremendously in getting settled in our new house too and making things as comfortable for us as they can. They have become good friends to us.

Daniel F Potts

"John was very helpful to us as we were trying to navigate buying a home long-distance.

He and his wife, Janie (also an agent), helped us search the area and find the perfect house for us, when there were not that many available. When the house we wanted was sold and then that deal fell through, we were contacted and immediately given another chance to buy, this time successful! John and Janie are very pleasant to work with and are very knowledgeable of the area. We highly recommend them!"

P Taylor

John is always very professional and responsive to buyers and/or their agents.

Its been a delight to work with John selling lots in Quail Meadows Subdivision. Only one lot left! Great work John!

Kevin Bray

"John's personable approach makes him easy to work with from the start.

He also demonstrates a very professional approach to his job with his prompt response to questions and concerns and his dependable follow up. Finally he was easily able to refer us to appropriate providers for service work required and assisted with follow through on those referrals. I will not hesitate to refer friends and family to him for their real estate needs."

Joyce B

"John was our seller agent as well as our buyer agent here in the Grand Valley.

We've known John for years (this is the second home where he was the buyer agent), and as you can tell by all the reviews John has been in the Grand Valley a long time. He knows the market as well as the area, and will make sure you are looking in the right neighborhood, at the right price. John brought us all the comps on the house we listed and made sure we priced it realistically for the market at that time, and made sure all marketing assets were in place asap.For the home we purchased, John made sure everything was in line and educated us on the neighborhood since this was a new area to us. John is not only professional and thorough as a real estate agent, but he is also patient when he's taking you through the process. He makes sure everyone comes out on top, and will dot the i's and cross the t's through every step. We would recommend John Duffy to anyone looking at selling or buying a home. He's a total class act and will take the stress and anxiety out of the process. Plus, he's an all around good guy."

Sharon Rosenwald

I felt as though he had my best interest at heart through the whole process!

34 days from finding the house - we CLOSED! Now that is efficient! He guided me through the assessor and appraisal process really well!


"John was outstanding.

He was very knowledgeable about the entire area. He went beyond any other realtor I've ever worked with. He was professional and informative. He found us that exact home we were looking for. I would highly recommend him."

Sue Decker

John exhibited professional service, quick response, and genuine care throughout the sale of our property.

He's also got a great sense of humor which was also appreciated. We look forward to working with John again in the future.

Kevin Bray

I highly recommend John Duffy as your real estate agent.

He was excellent to work with, knowledgeable in all processes involved, quick to use his experience to point out potential issues and helpful in negotiations. He was timely in keeping appointments, willing to adjust home visits to my schedule  and able to answer questions related to the properties being viewed. I appreciated his level of professionalism. I am confident in expressing this positive review for others. If you are looking for a realtor you can trust to watch out for your best interests, Call John Duffy. 


John listed and sold four residences for me in 2021.

He is knowledgeable, savvy and understands what it takes to get to contract and closing, and is helpful in listening to close the gap with sellers and buyers. He works hard and understands the timing factors in real estate.

Clark Atkinson

We worked with John on both the sale of our home and the purchase of a new home.

On both counts, he worked very hard to make sure that our needs were met. He is very knowledgeable of the current market, and ended up suggesting the home that we ultimately purchased. He also worked diligently to  sell our home, holding open houses and communicating regularly with other agents trying to find a buyer that was a good fit for the property. He did a wonderful job, and we are very grateful and happy in our new home! 

L Beth

John Duffy was the most caring and dedicated realtor we've ever had.

He paid so much attention to all the little details and made sure we knew exactly what we needed to do and how to get it all accomplished concerning selling our old home and buying the new one. We highly recommend him.

Daniel F Potts

John knows real estate and knows the Grand Junction area very well.

His experience was key in us landing what we were looking for in a tight sellers market.

Neil Forcier

John was fantastic!

He was very friendly, knowledgeable about the area, pros and cons of various issues, great listener and also great at making suggestions. He was a strong advocate for me when dealing with the buyer, and with my bank. He made himself available on the phone when he went out of town for vacation or personal business. I appreciated being able to talk directly with John when questions or issues came up. I would definitely recommend John and would use him again.

I have bought and sold five homes in the 16 years I have been in the valley.

John has been my agent on the last three deals and is getting ready to list my current home in March. John is very knowledgeable on the surrounding areas and the available inventory of homes. He is also very patient and  listens to your needs.... let’s just say I’m SOLD on the Duffy team! Knowing that he is on my side and someone who is guaranteed to get the job done, I wouldn’t want to do business with anyone else!

John and his wife Janie listed and sold our house and also helped us find a new home.

They were extremely helpful and never minded the tons of questions that I asked.
