John Farley is amazing and I highly recommend him.  He mixes exceptional knowledge of the real estate market and keen negotiation skills with perfect patients and excellent reflective questions.  His attentiveness allowed us to see homes as soon as they came on the market (key in a quick moving market like Boulder’s) and his questions allowed us to reflect on how our family would truly live in the home.  His wisdom about Boulder’s diversity of neighborhoods was helpful and we found a home in an area we had actually never previously spent time in despite living in Boulder for more than 10 years.
We love our home and loved working with John from beginning to end.  We felt exceptionally well represented and his skills at executing the deal once we found the home we wanted was essential.  We are so grateful to have found John and highly recommend him in every way!

Working with John was a true pleasure. His calm confidence paired with his vast industry and Boulder County knowledge allowed us, as first time home buyers, to proceed through the adventure without concern. John was always available and responsive, regardless of the time or day or method of communication. He thoroughly answered all questions and explained every step of the process. We are so grateful to have found a realtor that is kind, calm, honest, hard-working, flexible, and looking out for our best interests after investing the time to listen to and understand our needs. We highly recommend John and intend to do more business with him in the future.


John is a wonderful agent. He saw us through the buying and selling of our house and was professional, level-headed, smart, kind, and reassuring. He worked hard to get us the best price while helping us all to remain calm and good-humored throughout. He listened to our needs and saw us through two fairly intense negotiations, one at a distance. He communicates well with other agents. And he went the extra mile when helping us prepare our house for sale. I would recommend him without reservation.


John Farley is the perfect fellow to go to when you are looking to buy or sell a property.  He has extensive knowledge of Boulder, Longmont, Lafayette, Louisville and Erie areas.  John helped us look for a real estate investment property.  He had extensive knowledge of foreclosures, short sales and general market properties.  He knew when the property was overpriced and when one of them was priced right and encouraged us to put a contract in on them.  John has a very easy going personality, and easy to work with.  I would highly recommend John for any or all of your real estate needs.

John is the consummate professional agent. He listens to the client’s requests, gives exceptional advice about how to achieve what you want, then works tirelessly to see the deal completed successfully. As a lifelong Colorado resident and Boulder expert, he knows the region well and as a result, we expanded our options to Boulder and N. Denver. He helped us buy our dream house and then also sold our previous home (in days!). There were multiple times when the deal could have fallen, but John worked with the other agents to negotiate issues quickly and to our satisfaction. In selling our previous home, John gave us solid advice on how to prepare it, how to price it and how to have it show well. The result was a very smooth selling process, top $ results and no issues in inspections or closing. We feel very fortunate to have had John working on our behalf and we gladly recommend his services to anyone buying or selling in the area.

John has been incredible to work with. We met him at an open house and quickly realized that he was the relator we were looking for. His attention to detail, professionalism, knowledge, and genuine care for his clients puts him well above the rest. John went out of his way to make sure we were educated on all of the many decisions throughout the home-buying process. He always got back to us promptly and saw to it that every one of our questions was answered. It was very clear that John had our best interest in mind. We cannot recommend John enough!

Our experience working with John was incredible. He listened to our input and feedback throughout the home buying process. His ideas and advice showed his experience and vast knowledge of the Boulder area and were always in our best interest. He went above and beyond my expectations, calling  water drainage experts and plumbers to get us the best and most accurate information so we could make informed decisions. I highly recommend John and plan to work with him in the future.

John Farley has helped me both buy and sell a home – he is incredibly resourceful and proactive which was great because am out of state. John provides good guidance and advice without pressure. He is exactly the reason to have an agent manage and negotiate the process for you. He really looks out for his client’s best interest.


John has been my realtor in multiple transactions, and I would highly recommend him. As a native of this area, his knowledge of real estate trends, neighborhoods and realistic pricing has proven to be a real asset. John’s negotiation skills have helped pull some tough deals through when things were looking uncertain. His responsiveness is unbeatable – I always know he will return my calls and I know he will be really there for me. All in all, John has helped make the real estate process much more enjoyable for me.

We are so grateful for John Farley’s expertise, patience, and thoughtfulness. He helped us sell our home of 15 years and buy a replacement home, and from start to finish he took such good care of us. He made sure we understood everything that was happening, he always took the time to explain what all of our options were, and he was looking out for us in ways we never would have thought of ourselves. The closing schedules he negotiated for us were fantastic, with ample time to move from house to house after closing. And despite circumstances beyond our control that kept delaying our ability to get our house ready to list (we started the process in late 2013, but between the storm of Sept ’13 and issues with our HOA, we didn’t actually get on the market until Feb 2015), he stuck with us and kept communications open and never made us feel pressured. (AND he helped us know what kinds of questions to ask our HOA during those delaying issues so we could come through with all the info we could possibly need!) We could not be happier with our experience. With John Farley as your real estate agent, you will be in the best of hands.

We had an amazing experience with John. In this tough market, he made recommendations to help us win the bid on our new home. Our offer was not the highest of the 11 offers, but the most appealing to the seller. Thanks, John!

My husband and I recently bought our first home in the Boulder area and we couldn’t have done it without John. John is extremely knowledgeable about the Boulder market, gives great advice about the pros and cons of different neighborhoods, and has excellent negotiation skills. He talked with us about what we really wanted in a home, discussed all of the ins and outs of making an offer, came to our inspection so he could help draft a better inspection objection, crafted excellent objection reports, and helped us get in touch with experts so we could make informed decisions. When we wanted to expand our search, John also helped us explore other areas, like Golden, Lakewood, Louisville, and Superior.

John helped us find and secure the perfect house in an extremely competitive market. I look forward to working with him again in the future and highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a house in the Boulder area.

We’ve used John for buying and selling a house. We have no regrets, and would recommend him to anyone. John combines an impressive knowledge of real estate, Colorado, and people with a general good nature and courtesy, and the outcome is a great experience for anyone buying or selling a house. It’s hard to work with John and not feel like he’s your friend pretty quickly, and it’s hard to imagine a better real estate agent.


John helped us sell our last house and buy the one we’ve been in now for 7 years. We are thinking about another move in the not too distant future and have already contacted John to help us with the entire process. He is a gem! Very personable and bright, he understands our needs, he listens, and he is very helpful and kind.

I can’t imagine looking for a new home without him!

John has represented us in three Boulder, CO transactions…two purchases and one sale. In each instance he has kept each deal on schedule and has a unique ability to resolve potential issues before they become deal breakers.

We would surely use his services again. He was always patiently available to answer our questions and treated us the way all of us would like to be treated in a real estate transaction.

Don’t hesitate at all to work w/ John…he’s on it! He’s got a great team which allows all facets of the sometimes tricky real estate transaction to be handled in a timely/professional manner. I didn’t actually get to a closing w/ John due to me purchasing the home I was renting but he did get me into a very strong backup position in this crazy bidding war process in Colorado…we would of had the house but a cash offer beat us out. John tried his hardest and I’m sure will for your family as well. Call him, get qualified and let him write a super clean offer for you!!!

Chad Y.

This was our first time buying a house, and John was a true God send. He was patient and knowledgeable throughout the entire process, and helped us make an educated decision every step of the way. John knew how to get us in to see a house immediately, and gave us great advice at every turning point. He has a low-key demeanor, but is a mean negotiator. He truly was on our side from beginning to end, and I could not be more grateful!
