What my clients are saying:

“In spring 2010, John listed my building and sold it in about a month. His advice as to price and marketing was invaluable and his many years of experience and knowledge of the commercial landscape in Albuquerque were instrumental in the success of this transaction. John was a firm, and when necessary, aggressive negotiator but never lost vision of our goal to close the deal.”

James C. Ellis, Esq., Whitener Law Firm, PA

“John is a complete professional. It is a pleasure to work with him and he has always come through for us.”

 Robert R. Tillman, President and CEO, Sierra Photonics Inc.

“John has shepherded six commercial real estate transactions for me and my family over the past seven years. He has made it easy for us to grow our investments and our passive income stream several times over. We owe a great deal of our financial independence to John’s thoroughness and competence. He’s the best in the business.”

Jeff Nichol, DVM, Behavior & General Medicine for Pets

“John Henderson recently served as our broker (NAI Maestas & Ward) in the sale of a commercial building my husband and I owned. We had listed the property with another broker for over 2 ½ years with no success. John was outstanding in his services to us, and I highly recommend his abilities as a Realtor. He is very knowledgeable and capable in every area necessary for securing, executing and completing a transaction.” 

Betty Linver Former Owner, Walgreens Building, 1680 Rio Rancho Blvd.

“It is clearly evident why you are one of most respected brokers in the State. For me, this was a complicated transaction and a great learning experience. Your counsel, attention to detail, and follow-through sets a very high standard and was critical to our success. Thanks for all your help and I look forward to working with you in the future.”
