I have been living and raising my family for over 20 years in the Sacramento metro region. I had a wonderful career with Delta Airlines as an In Flight Coordinator before becoming a Realtor.  Those years of customer service experience, with people from all over the world, has prepared me for my career with Lyon in our wonderful and diverse city.  I have lived in many places across our country, but Sacramento is home for good. 

I have a degree in Economics from the University of Richmond and a background in real estate development while living in the Atlanta area.  In addition to being a Realtor, I have owned several homes and I know how stressful the process of selling or buying a home can be from both sides of the transaction.  My pledge to you will be to eliminate that stress through exceptional customer service and knowledgeable advice while negotiating the best deal for you.

My guiding principle in my career and life is; helping others is the shortest path to happiness. It would make me very happy to be able to help you.

John Hurley was wonderful to work with. He has the ability and knowledge that it takes to be a fantastic realtor. I would not consider anyone else to assist me.

We love John A. Hurley! If you need a tough negotiator, a savvy marketer, and if you want your home SOLD - Call John. He is now not only our Realtor, but a trusted friend.

John-You brought us four above-asking price offers for our property. You did what it took to bring the sale of our home to a close, and to understand our needs when we purchased our next home. John Hurley is the first person you need to call if you want things done seamlessly and with total accuracy.

John made me feel comfortable during this stressful process. He and I discussed each process. He was recommended by a friend of mine who sold and bought a home with John

Yay, it was a lot of fun to look at potential condos and found the one that was perfect for me. Thank you John. I really appreciate John's efforts to find a perfect a home for me. I am very happy. John found a perfect home for me in a short amount of time with very limited inventory, and in a very nice neighborhood, I couldn't ask for more. I have a home, thanks to John. All the Best. Mo

John Hurley is the absolute best! He's such a fun and personable guy to work with. John is very responsive when you need something and he genuinely cares. He has good ideas, he's organized and extremely dependable. He goes the extra mile. I am definitely on the high maintenance side and he was very patient with me. He kept me afloat emotionally as well. I purchased my first house with him and it's quiet the emotional process. It's exciting yet stressful especially in this market. John and I had quite the adventure finding my home. Over the last 6 months, we looked at probably 125+ homes, I put 5-6 offers in, the market is nuts and the bidding war is no joke! I walked away from one deal and finally found the one! We closed one on 9/30/17. Thank you, John. Seriously, you are a gem! I will refer everyone and their mama to you. Lyon Realty, you are lucky to have Mr. Hurley! Best experience!

I would highly recommend and use John A. Hurley again for any home buying or selling needs. He was reliable and trustworthy. There was never a moment that I felt unheard or not taken care of. He went above and beyond expectations.


—Cortney C. Sacramento, CA

John and I have been looking for a home in East Sac for over a year. He has been very responsive to new homes in the area and going above and beyond. We looked at homes before they even went on the market, thanks to his extensive networking with other agents. He also helped me sell my home in less than a week. I couldn't have dreamed of a better agent and, more importantly, a trusted friend, to work with. I would not hesitate to recommend him.


—Susan W, East Sacramento
  /  

John A. Hurley is such a delight to work with! He loves what he does and it truly shows in his work. We were nervous first time home buyers and he made the whole process easy and stress free! He has such an interesting background which makes the house hunting so much more interesting. Thank you once again for making this experience such a memorable one! We will never forget it thanks to you John! P.S. Don't let his picture fool you he's super easy going and a sweetheart!

John did an excellent job getting the word about our home for sale---such as, taking flyers to local realtor meetings, hosting an open house right away, and advertising. He also met us at the house prior to listing it to suggest updates and preparation. He met the inspectors at the house, made sure the yard was neat and watered, and basically went above and beyond for us ---out of town sellers.


—Janet T

Mal and I love John. I'm glad my friend referred us to him. As first time home buyers, he layed things out cleary and made it easy to understand. He was also open to showing us different houses to help inform us on what type of house that we could afford in different neighborhoods. Having known a lot of people who've purchased houses before, it was great to have John make things super easy considering that I traveled for work on a weekly basis. John had great references for the home and termite inspection and had a great relationship with our lender as well. We had the ability to sign documents online, which was good considering my work schedule. John also has a great ability to read and understand his clients. Very low pressure, clear and forward with communication, and very trustworty. He connected well with my girlfriend and had a great understanding of what we were looking for. We got a steal on our home. I honestly don't think that we would of found a house of this level had we went with another realtor. As an engineer, I always look at the details. John understood that and was able to find us a home that had all those things. This house is a near perfect turn-key that had a fantastic price and is situated in a great neighborhood.

Additional Testimonials

John truly knows how to listen to your needs. He may come off a little reserved at first. This is his listening style. Once he understands a bit about you, he will ask ALL of the right questions to get you into the property you want/need, The property that fits you! John also knows the process. This process is completely frustrating with many, many moving parts. It is completely intimidating. John simply asked me to "sit back and let his team do what it does". This was the best advice he could have given me. I have two friends that started their process before I did. Neither of them have found a place and their requirements are MUCH simpler than mine. More than anything, John is FUN! HE was enlightening throughout the entire process and such an easy outgoing person to be with while looking at these homes. He actually got to the point where he could stop the car and turn around before we even got out of the car. He just knew, THIS HOUSE IS NOT FOR THEM!!! :) My family and I are so very happy with our new home. We are also happy to have found a new friend. John is personable and professional and comes highly recommended from us :)

John was by far, the best agent I have dealt with. Very informative, always on time. He really did go the extra mile when It came to finding me a home. Even after the home was closed and his job was done, he still calls to make sure all is well and how we are settling in. Thank you John for your attention you gave us and I will always recommend you to anyone who is looking to sell/buy a home. A+

I really enjoyed working with you. As you may recall, there were a couple of times when I really got nervous about this whole buying process and was ready to back out but your help, your patience and your professionalism really helped me get through. I want to thank you for all you did for me, and because of that, I am now a homeowner. -Irma Z.


I referred a client to John and he was extremely professional and curtious while dealing with them. He maintained good communication throughout and ensured the client had a positive experience when selling their home. Thank you for a job well done! -Joni N.


John Hurley was my realtor for a home I just brought in Carmichael. He was very friendly and very open to helping me in every way. Set me up with a great loan officer who helped me get my loan right away. Always answered all my phone calls. Invited me to the block party in the neighborhood before the home was closed and just went out of his way to make me feel comfortable. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a home to buy.


—Matin S.

Shortly after my mother passed away, I contacted John for his assistance in deciding what to do with her home. He provided excellent, unbiased advice with respect to renting vs. selling, and then, when I decided to list it for sale with him, worked with me to get the home ready for sale. Since I do not reside in the area, having someone like John who lives nearby helped to alleviate any concerns I had about taking care of house-related issues that required someone to be present. John always went the extra mile to ensure that everything was done on a timely basis and in a professional manner. He always responded promptly to phone calls, emails, and text messages I sent. The sale of the house closed in just over 30 days. I would have no hesitation in recommending John for anyone who is considering selling their property.


—John S.

There are many real estate agents out there, but if you want an agent who is willing to invest their time to understand you and help you find the right home for your family, then John Hurley is the agent. John helped my wife and I purchase the perfect home for us. He was efficient in responding to our calls and never hesitated to answer the many questions that we had. He was with us every step of the way and made our buying experience very positive and fulfilling. We would definitely recommend John to our friends, families, and relatives. Last, but not least, John even knew what we needed and surprised us with a handy gift as we walked into our new home. Thank you, John, we have made good use of your gift.
