John Bobnes - President/Realtor
“A good Realtor® is harder to find than a good doctor!” – Richard Barton, founder of Zillow.
Real Estate, as an industry, seems to be flooded with agents. It’s a saturated market. Not saturated with good agents, but lots and lots of agents, all the same. Finding a great Real Estate Agent is like a lot like trying to find a good, reliable contractor, attorney, or Doctor…and we all know how hard that can be!?
It’s said that as much as 90% of all Real Estate is sold by 10% of the Real Estate professionals.
That 10% is an elite group. It’s the special few that understand that being responsive, thorough, attentive and listening to a customer’s wants and needs is critical to long term success. This group of experts know, that like in many businesses, ‘word of mouth’ referrals are the life-blood of their long term success. Those referrals come from satisfied customers that know they have found a valuable resource that they can trust to recommend to friends, business associates and family.
That's why I started The Bobnes Group. We do Real Estate differently. Whether you are a buyer or seller, we offer exclusive written performance guarantees to insure peace of mind.
There’s a famous Real Estate quote by an unknown author, that drives me when SELLING/LISTING a property for my customer, "Greater exposure equals greater demand. Greater demand equals a higher price."
When helping a customer BUY a property, I am reminded of something Madeline Albright once said, "In order to be a successful negotiator, you have to be able to put yourself into the other person’s shoes. Unless you can understand what is motivating them, you are never going to be able to figure out how to solve a particular problem."
We have combined decades of experience from top performing Real Estate professionals. We utilize strategic negotiating techniques combined with unparalleled marketing and advertising to ensure anyone allowing us to represent them the feeling they were treated fairly, constantly communicated with, offered help when needed, and made a top priority.
Because referrals are the cornerstone of any good business, we, at The Bobnes Group believe we can't be considered "successful" unless we give back to those in need. We give $500.00 from every sale or purchase, in your name, to either The Wounded Warrior Project or Charity Water. Every referral to The Bobnes Group can literally save lives!
So, who is John Bobnes and why should you partner with me to buy or sell your Real Estate?
I have over 25 years of sales experience, always rank at the top of my field and have negotiated over 2,500 contracts. I have trained with the #1 Remax Agent in the world and I have modeled my company after his.
Secondly, I was raised by “Depression Era” grandparents who brought me up to live by the Golden Rule. My Grandfather was successful in Sales Management for over 50 years and he taught me everything I know today. It is an ‘old school’ philosophy. I ALWAYS treat others how I’d like to be treated and I ALWAYS care more about the customer than the commission.
Any Real Estate transaction has many moving parts, from pricing your property properly, to marketing it aggressively to create demand, and meticulously executing paperwork to avoid the potential for lawsuit. Being in a professional’s hands, someone you trust, someone that specializes in maximizing value while assuming any risks for you and smoothly guiding you through the process, is invaluable!
When people ask you if you know anyone good in Real Estate, I want you to say, ‘use my Realtor® John, his Group is the best!’ I want to be ‘your guy’ in Real Estate! I was taught to never make a promise I can’t keep, not to sugar-coat or exaggerate and to be direct with my customers. I may not always tell you what you want to hear, but know that I WILL ALWAYS TELL YOU THE TRUTH!
When you choose to work with me, you will find the peace of mind of knowing that me and my team will take care of all the procedural details properly, and know we have YOUR best interests at heart. I PROMISE you that I will work my hardest for you. I will represent you professionally and utilize all my unique skills to insure you are getting the best return possible for your investments.
Whether you partner with us to BUY or SELL your Real Estate, I will always put your needs first!
We, at the Bobnes Group, look forward to being your life-long Real Estate team!

Feedback from our previous clients
John and Rebecca helped us sell my mothers home in Pomona. My mom is disabled and its hard to get her out of the house, they were more then happy to come to my house to help her sign the paperwork. The Bobnes Group's "Guaranteed Sale Program" helped sell her home fast and gave us peace of mind of knowing that if it didn't sell, John would buy it himself. Also because of their unique marketing strategies, her home sold for 10% over the asking price, in just ONE day, with 10 offers! John fought hard to get us the most possible for our home! They were very responsive to all our questions and concerns. I also really appreciated The Bobnes Group's commitment to helping others! They donate $500 from every transaction to a worthwhile charity! We chose to help wounded veterans! Which for us was a big deal!
My wife and I interviewed three agents before selling our home in Burbank. If you are even remotely considering selling, you must talk to John, the owner of The Bobnes Group Real Estate. They do way more than other realtors and have a special proprietary marketing and pricing strategy that impressed my wife and I so much, we decided to have The Bobnes Group sell our home over a realtor friend we have known for years. He even paid her a huge referral fee even though he didn't have to. It was incredible! Their system worked better than we expected. They managed to create so much interest and excitement about our home, that we had over 100 qualified buyers and agents see it in the first few days.
John and his team sold our home in just three days, with multiple offers and for $56,000 over our asking price! It was a very easy transaction and John and Rebecca were there for us every step of the way. The Bobnes Group's "Guaranteed Sale Program" helped sell our home fast and gave us peace of mind of knowing that if it didn't sell, John would buy it himself.
They fought hard to get us the most possible for our home! It felt so good to be represented by such true professionals. The peace of mind that we were in "good hands" was priceless. They were very responsive to all our questions and concerns. We also really appreciated The Bobnes Group's commitment to helping others. They donate $500 from every transaction to a worthwhile charity! We had them give to The Wounded Warrior Project! I appreciate a company that focuses on helping others first.
I recently used the Bobnes Group to sell a condo in Encino which had been in my family for about 40 years, with minimal upgrades or improvements. They have a unique marketing and tactical pricing strategy which was very successful. Their strategy resulted in multiple offers, many well above our asking price, within a week of putting the property on the market. In fact, they began marketing the property as "coming soon" before the listing was active, which generated a flurry of interest right away.
They are very adept at using online resources, which was among the reasons I chose the Bobnes Group to handle this sale. Using their resources, they generated tremendous demand. In fact, we had over 100 qualified buyers or agents visit the property within the first 3 days. Within a week, John and Rebecca presented me with multiple offers, and I accepted an offer for $100,000 over the asking price!
During the escrow process, I was kept informed by Rebecca in a very professional manner. Both John and Rebecca are true professionals.
An additional benefit of using the Bobnes Group is their commitment to helping others. For every completed transaction, either a sale or a purchase, they donate $500 of their commission on the client's behalf to a worthwhile charity. In my case, a donation was made to "Charity Water".
I have bought and sold several properties over the years with other realtors. Comparing this sale experience with those in the past, I would say that I would recommend the Bobnes Group without reservation and will use them again in the future.
