Honesty - Integrity - Commitment
As a 1st time home buyer in an expensive area, it's tough not to just pick the right house but the right broker. The SouthBay has dozens of them but I found the best one by far (referred by a happy client)....John Bathurst is a 5 star top notch broker from soup to nuts. John is not just a broker, but a local educator/mentor/expert who advises you through the entire process.....location, what you get for the money (short time and long term), tours, recommending the right vendor partners (movers, loan agents, banks, etc), how to pick the perfect place to fit your needs, how to get the highest/lowest price, how to close the deal, etc. He holds your hand through the entire process from start to finish, so nothing gets dropped. Personality traits - likeable, thorough, responsible, detail oriented, patient, honest, integrity, doesnt feather/fold, and when the time is right will be lighting focus and persistent to close a deal. Dont just hire your friend or who you know, hire a reputable business person who has all the above personality/work qualities which will make the process easier/better and make it happen. I HIGHLY recommend John Bathurst to be your next broker. I would not be in my new house without him (previous brokers just wanted the deal and walk away). LOVE my new house!jasonjclark
I recently worked with John on an opinion of value for my current residence and purchasing another income property. Have known John for over 20 years and he has always been professional, timely, well versed in market conditions and trends, and always put his client's needs first. I would recommend him to anyone from first time buyers to seasoned real estate investors.sjplache
We spoke to John on a couple of occasions to learn more about the Manhattan Beach market. He was very knowledgeable and most importantly, a good listener. We did not end up purchasing with John, but under different circumstances we would have been excited to move ahead with John for our home shopping needs in Manhattan Beach. John is professional and has a just the right balance of proactivity and follow up.kenthealy
I couldn't say enough nice things about John. He has handled 4 transactions for me in the last 6 months and each time he presented himself as the consummate professional that is eager to go above and beyond to make sure all parties to the transactions were constantly updated and expectations are being and were met. He has incredible people skills and a very high level of corporate experience and acumen that allow him to navigate even the most complex Real Estate transactions with grace and humility. I highly recommend John for your next Real Estate transaction.Christian Salceda
John is a true professional and an expert in Manhattan Beach Real Estate. In a very competitive market, John was able to secure the home I had to have. There were several people competing for the same property and I wasn’t sure I would win out. John was able to use his influence, expertise and professionalism to not only get my offer excepted but also helped with all the details until move in date. I would recommend John for any Real Estate needs.Debbie Papworth
John and I have been friends for over 10 years and truly believe he is a prominent figure in the Manhattan Beach area. He is very familiar with all sections of Manhattan Beach and an excellent communicator . I know from his past experiences, it helps him negotiate a fair and solid deal for both sides. He is a responsible parent who takes great pride in his children and often helps with their sports, school functions , whenever needed he will be thereTim Kelly
I have known John personally for over 10 years and have found him to be an honest and hard working individual. He is involved with the community of Manhattan Beach and intimately aware of the real estate market. His former executive level positions with major apparel companies gives him excellent strengths in how to get things done in a vastly unprofessional and unresponsive industry. The next time I purchase a home I will use JohnHugh Kretschmer

John comes to the real estate industry with years of proven business experience. With so many real estate people in the South Bay completely lacking in business acumen, John is a breath of fresh air. You will be very happy with his professionalism, his organization, and his communication. He has all the skills needed to assist his clients through the most technical of real estate transactions.John Ward

If you want the opportunity to achieve the highest possible price of your home, you definitely want to consider staging. Although there are no guarantees, it is estimated that staging a home can fetch an additional 1-5% increase on the purchase price. Depending on the budget and the value of your home, this can be done on many levels.
For most people, a home is their largest purchase and biggest asset. Walking though an empty house can be uninspiring and overwhelming to buyers. Home staging brings the imagination and insight they need to become excite about a property. It will transform a property from an empty impersonal space into a warm, inviting home. Another option would be if your home just needed a little love. By cleaning up the clutter, removing personal items, adding some furnishing and accessories can do wonders for the overall appearance of your home.
Whatever your decision, I am here to help. Bathurst Coastal Properties has access to many Home Stagers in the South Bay and surrounding Los Angeles area. We can put together a plan that will suit any budget or vision.
