Report Card

It’s one thing for me to blather on about my commitment to  clients, but it’s what my clients think of the services I provide that ultimately matters.

What follows are real comments from real clients. I would be happy to put you in touch with any of them for you to decide if we are a good fit for each other.

I’ve enjoyed the diversity of home buyers I’ve helped to relocate …from California, Massachusetts, New York,New Jersey, Northern Va., Maryland,  Florida, and overseas England, France, to across town Williamsburg VA relocations ……large families and single Moms …various religions, ethnicities, and socio-economic backgrounds …I’ve developed friendships, and kept warm memories of these folks, all connected by their shared dream of American home ownership. Here are some of their stories, for which I’m grateful, in their own words…

Read reviews below :

John’s experience, knowledge & responsive are second to none.

We can’t imagine having a better agent. He knew who to call for anything we needed…and did it for us.

We highly recommend John!

We would highly recommend John to anyone interested in buying a house in the Williamsburg or surrounding areas. Not only is John extremely knowledgeable in his business but he goes above and beyond the responsibvilities of a realtor. He gave us answers before we even asked the questions and was always on spot when we needed him which made the whole home buying experience an extremely smooth one.

Anne & Kenneth Lamar- Kingsmill

My husband and I love John’s personality.  Knowledgeable, low-key, no pressure.  We always felt John was on our side, and never felt that he was put out at all by what we asked of him – which was alot.  He’s a genuinely nice guy who does a great job for his clients.

We finally found the perfect piece of property – just what we wanted – thanks to John.  It took a long time, but John was extremely patient with us.

You won’t find a better realtor.  We’ve bought many homes through the years, and John’s the best we’ve ever worked with.  We recommend him highly to anyone who is looking in the Williamsburg area

Jason & Kim Pully- Powhatan Crossing -Williamsburg/ James City County VA

John helped us buy our first house. We had just moved to the area from the other side of the country and really relied on John’s knowledge of the market and the area. All of his advise was dead on. He told us in advance that many of the houses we had chosen to look at (based on online ads) were probably not what we were looking for, but he took us to all the houses anyway, and in every case he was right on. We ended up choosing a for sale by owner and John made the closing process so smooth. John made recommendations for mortgage companies, insurance, and home warranties. We researched all the options and in every case ended up going with who he recommended because they were the best option. He even helped the sellers find contractors for repairs. They said that they felt he earned his commission and told us they were glad we chose him. Overall, John is very well informed, always gives his honest opinion and has his clients best interests in mind. I would definitely work with him again

John is exactly what you want in an agent.

I corresponded with John on line – about grocery stores and neighborhoods, months before the real work together to find the right house. He was so good to find out my requirements and make recommendations with his online portal. This portal – with the listings I wanted to think about – made me feel connected to the real estate in Williamsburg even though I was far away in France. His on-line blogs and letters written about the community made me aware of his vast knowledge and style. I felt I knew a lot about him and Williamsburg before meeting. On the other hand, my husband got to know him face to face when actually being shown around. He met my husbands house search expectations as well.  It seems that this agency is well planned and professional, meeting the needs of employees and sellers and buyers. John was outstanding!

Even after closing John has treated our home and needs like his own.

John was easy to reach and knowledgeable about the area. He thought of every single detail. The title company was excellent. Everyone I was in contact with was customer service oriented (a refreshing change I might add). I would not hesitate to refer anyone.

John Found Exactly What We Were Looking For!

John found exactly what we were looking for in a house and community and found us the perfect home.  John will always be considered a part of our family!  At no time did we feel pressure to buy, I think John would have driven to the end of the earth to show us a home we were interested in.  The process from the home selection all the way down to the utilities transfer was the smoothest purchase one could ever dream of. He was outstanding in his negotiating skills, knowledge, responsiveness and preparation!  A 10 all the way around!

He was wonderful with our two children and showed us houses at any time and on any day we requested.

John was so fun and easy to work with. He was wonderful with our two children and showed us houses at any time and on any day we requested. He is awesome!
Our agent was wonderful. We were first time home buyers. John helped us with ideas for our house and other houses that we visited. He also went to some houses more than two times in one week!!
He listened to everything we said and made sure that we were aware of everything there was about the property. If he didn’t know, he would find out.

Bryce Clifton and Erin Smith- New Kent


John is Amazing!

John is amazing.  He was very good with my children and even bought them ice cream.  He was also accommodating to my busy schedule.  He was honest about my expectations.

Stephanie Slaymaker- Braemar Creek, Williamsburg, VA


John has a unique ability to look at property through the eyes of his client!

My experience with John Womeldorf has been exceptional. Certainly he is extremely warm and personable. But, probably more important, he has been extremely responsive and well informed. He has been quick to provide answers (from developers and others) and documentation (such as the many pages of Rules and Regulations in New Town), as we considered several properties. His computer expertise has eased the receipt and dissemination of information, including the scanning of executed documents that I can send along to my attorney. John?s presentation of past sales, viewed on the screen in your conference room and then printed out, allowed me to make a well informed offer on a property in New Town.
John has a unique ability to look at property through the eyes of his client. His support was especially good for someone considering a purchase from ?far away?. Virtual tours of properties and many digital photographs of interiors, exteriors, and neighborhoods arrived on my laptop and allowed me to have a much better sense of each property in advance of my visit.
Overall, John made me feel as though I was his only client and that he had all the time in the world to find me a property that I would love. We both know better than that. I am sure that he is serving a multitude of clients for your firm with the same incredible efforts.

Susan Richardson- New Town, Williamsburg, VA


John did an amazing job!

John did an amazing job throughout a very difficult process.  There is no one I would trust more.  He kept us informed and gave us information and allowed us to make our own decisions.  He was very calm and insightful throughout the process.  John is a rarity in that he is an honest man with a genuine concern for the well being of others and will commit to actions back up his philosophy.

Bondy Gibson & Diana Embler- Williamsburg


Exceptional customer service!

John gave us exceptional customer service.  Always willing to go the extra mile in answering our questions or in assisting us with any number of other real estate issues.  He never said he couldn’t do something and he was always available, or made himself available, whenever we felt inclined to visit the property.  Additionally he gave us great advice regarding the house inspection that I’m sure saved us thousands of dollars!.  Great service, I can see why you are ‘Mr. Williamsburg’!

LCDR USN Daniel Bakker- Kingspoint, Williamsburg, VA


Service was outstanding…John went above and beyond to make this as painless as possible!

Service was outstanding…John went above and beyond to make this as painless as possible. John was very helpful and provided quick responses to any concerns. His honesty was much appreciated in helping us with “every” detail. The extra touches like coordinating our fence installation and driving us to the airport were priceless. This was a very smooth transaction. John’s competence left us with no gray areas and he truly looked out for us. We will not hesitate to refer John and Liz Moore and Associates to anyone we know moving this way.

Major General Frank Faykes, USAF Retired- Governors Land- Williamsburg, VA


We really appreciate John’s availability, knowledge of the Williamsburg area…

John always made himself available to us and spent lots of time showing us properties. We really appreciate John’s availability, knowledge of the Williamsburg area and the fact that he did not try to persuade us into something that we didn’t want.

Howard and Yvonne Forbes- Fords Colony, Williamsburg, VA


John went well above and beyond what is expected of an agent, and we truly appreciate his effort.

We would like to thank John for all he did to help us find, purchase and settle into our new home. We LOVE it!
We realize that John went well above and beyond what is expected of an agent, and we truly appreciate his effort. The pictures, measurements, and extra coordination with Jonathon Beamer ( The builder of our home) , Lytle Title and the various utilities made our ‘long distance’ purchase and move into our dream home a breeze.

(Retired Colonel US Army) Ron Woolever and Deb Woolever- Greensprings West , Williamsburg, VA


John was extremely efficient with the available time–very professional, yet personable.

I had very little time to make a decision as an of town buyer. John was extremely efficient with the available time–very professional, yet personable. It was a pleasure to have him as a real estate agent.

M. Thompson- Kingsmill, Williamsburg, VA


We move every three years, so we have dealt with many realtors– John was by far the best!

John was outstanding! We move every three years, so we have dealt with many realtors– John was by far the best. I would refer him to anyone! John was there for every phone call and email–he always responded in a timely manner. I loved him sending updated photos the most–since we bought sight unseen. John always went above and beyond for us–there wasn’t anything he didn’t do! He even video taped the drive from the neighborhood entrance to the house and sent it to us! Thank you, thank you, thank you. From beginning to end, John was friendly, helpful, professional and fun to work with!

Chris and Becca Hoskins- Stonehouse, Toano, VA


He constantly sent us updated information.

We were impressed with the prepared booklet of visitation sites…most helpful! John followed up after the home inspection. He constantly sent us updated information.

Randall and Cynthia Carter, Westgate,  Williamsburg, VA


John truly was outstanding!

He kept us informed verbally and with photos as the house was under construction. If we had any concerns, he was “always” helpful…an excellent agent. He did everything possible to be extremely helpful. John is a fantastic person as well as a great agent. John truly was outstanding!

Fred and Sue Biel- Colonial Heritage, Williamsburg, VA


John has set the Gold Standard for Service!

John has set the gold standard for service and support through a long and protracted process.  We purchased a home in foreclosure which had a very challenging process to complete and John went far above and beyond to both speed up the process and to take responsibility for many aspects of the process that would have been too challenging for us, without professional representation. John  was outstanding in every aspect of this process as he has been all three times we have used his services for buying and selling homes.  He could teach a course on how to achieve a pinnacle in customer service and relationship building!  He represents Liz Moore and himself as examples of excellence!

Bondy Gibson & Diana Embler – Third Time Clients- Richmond, VA


We were in Guam and relied solely on John through the entire process.

We were in Guam and relied solely on John through the entire process. He found us our home, went to every inspection for us, took care of every issue quickly, dealt with the builder so we did not have to; took videos of the neighborhood for us and pictures along the way.
We feel very fortunate to have had John as our agent. He was extremely helpful every step of the way. He did absolutely everything and more for us and we couldn’t be more pleased. John went above and beyond and for that we are thankful.

Harold and Erin Rissman USCG Gloucester , VA


We had to return to NY after the closing; John arranged for the wood flooring to be installed.

John helped us in so many ways, we couldn’t begin to list them all!  He tracked the building process and e-mailed us pictures.  Since we had to return to NY after the closing, John arranged for the wood flooring to be installed and handled all of the details which was a big help.

CHARLES & ANN SECTER- Colonial Heritage, Williamsburg, VA


John was always available!

John was always available to address questions/concerns that we had.  His response time was fantastic.  He also took pictures of the home and neighborhood during the building period and gave us updates since were out of state.  His responsiveness, preparation and knowledge are OUTSTANDING!

Erlyn & LTJG USN Jonathan Lavery , Liberty Crossing, Williamsburg, VA

John worked tirelessly for us to find us a piece of property.  We are from out of state, so it was no easy feat.  He did drive-bys, took photos, returned our numerous phone calls and emails, and helped us sort out what we wanted.  He showed us alternatives, and kept us apprised of what the market was doing, provided historical data, and a sense of what the market might look like going forward.

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

John Womeldorf (aka Mr. Williamsburg) of Liz Moore and Assoc in NewTowne Williamsburg is an awesome realtor.  He knows Williamsburg and the surrounding area very well.  He lives there with his wife and children, so he can provide a multitude of information – anything you require.  His knowledge on different neighborhoods was invaluable to us.
