“I absolutely love being a real estate agent in Los Angeles and could not imagine doing anything else.” With a passion for architecture and design, John thoroughly enjoys working with clients across the prime neighborhoods of Los Angeles–from the Hollywood Hills to Hancock Park to the wonderful neighborhoods on the Westside. “Given the breadth and depth of great architecture in Los Angeles, there’s truly something out there to suit every taste,” he says. “From 1920s Spanish to mid-century modern to to cutting-edge contemporary homes. And there’s quality design at all prices points–not only at the upper end of the market.”

On working with clients: “I view my role as that of a trusted adviser on all matters real estate. It’s not about a transaction–but rather about building a mutually beneficial relationship that will last for many years,” he says. Working with sellers, John brings to the table a proven set of pricing strategies as well as marketing savvy that was honed while working at top New York ad agencies Ogilvy & Mather, Deutsch and Young & Rubicam. On the other side of deals, working with buyers is all about leveraging his market knowledge and deep relationships within the agent community to secure the right home for his buyers.

John has an MBA from the Leonard N. Stern School of Business at New York University and an undergraduate degree from The George Washington University. Outside of work, he’s an avid traveler, a foodie and a bit of a fanatic about skiing in Colorado.


John has a real passion for what he does. He is thorough, detail oriented, and really goes the extra mile for his clients. As first time home-buyers, my husband and I felt absolutely taken care of. He knew how to put us at ease as we moved through the process. John guided us through all of the necessary paperwork, transactions. He also cultivates a really great working relationship with the other party's agent, making the whole process (from offer to escrow, inspections, negotiations, etc) feel all the more smoother. We would highly recommend him to anyone in the market for a home! ~ --Riley
We felt confident having John Iglar as our real estate agent to purchase our home. He is friendly and professional and made the process as pleasurable as we could imagine. There were many times that he demonstrated his business acumen and experience in the industry. I would highly recommend him as a real estate agent. ~ --Alison
John is definitely a 5 star agent. He's intelligent and has terrific follow through. Plus a deep integrity to satisfy the client. He can explain the process clearly so you will understand what is about to happen either buying or selling a house. I couldn't recommend anyone higher.Our experience together was awesome! ~ --Peggy
John helped me buy my first home with minimal hassle, and it was a great experience. He is meticulous, accessible, and knowledgable. I felt that I was in great hands at our first meeting, and I was right. My closing went super smoothly, largely because John had everything "buttoned up" as he likes to say. Attention to detail is so important...especially when making the biggest purchase of your life! I can't say enough good things about John--he's wonderful, and I highly recommend him. ~ --Laura
John Iglar is a personable and professional agent, who possesses an exhaustive knowledge of the Los Angeles real estate market and an amazing taste level. But most importantly, he helped me and my spouse buy our dream home. Ours was quite a complex process, but John helped us navigate it--and manage our stress levels along the way. Since we were the first buyers in a new build, it was extremely tricky to juggle the seller's timeline with the lender's requirements for the number of units under contract. But he managed to keep the seller patient and confident, while we secured financing. And when the developer's lender fell through, he found us a new lender with an even better rate. There were numerous moments when the deal could have gone off the rails, but John kept it on track to a successful end. This required not only a mastery of the business, but diplomacy and finesse. Soon after we closed, the building sold out--the units going in exactly the order that John had predicted. Then the building won the AIA award, and it's appreciated considerably in only a matter of months. I can't recommend John Iglar and his expertise highly enough. ~ --Aaron
I had such a great experience working with John. I was conducting a long-distance search from London for a condo in West Hollywood and getting nowhere until I was introduced to John. He really understood what I was trying to accomplish and type of home I was looking for and did an extraordinary job of educating me as to the market. I began to trust John's experience and expertise so much I wound up putting a bid on a condo sight unseen because his judgment and taste are impeccable. And then jumped on a plane for an 11 hour flight to accelerate everything because I trusted John not to waste my time. And I'm very, very glad I did as the neighborhood, unit and investment are all phenomenal. He has enormous patience and undertanding for guiding a client through an intense market and all hurdles. John is also a super nice guy I now also happy to consider a good friend. He's an excellent agent who I recommend very highly! ~ --Dan
John provides vast market knowledge, spot on strategies and a personality that is just pleasant to work with (especially during what could be a very stressful process). He helped to sell my Santa Monica condo quickly and for well over asking price. I couldn't have asked for more! I would recommend him to anyone I know looking to buy or sell in the Los Angeles area. ~ --Cynthia
John Iglar found me my ideal home about seven years ago. It was my first experience buying real estate and I think I got extraordinarily lucky to have him guiding me. Not only did I end up with a place that exceeded my wishes and has more than suited my needs -- not to mention appreciated in value above market norms -- I also discovered that John takes his work seriously enough that when I decided to refinance my mortgage recently, John jumped in of his own accord to help make certain the process was exactly right for me. He's got a great eye for special properties and a deep knowledge of local real estate. Couldn't recommend him more highly. ~ --Jeff
John's incredible knowledge of the LA market, connections and advice helped us find a home beyond our expectations. He was a supportive and reassuring guide in what can be a stressful endeavor. John is the real-estate agent of choice for all our friends in the LA area, and we can see why! ~ --Kate
John was a perfect agent. The house was on the market for a very short time before it sold, and the escrow was even shorter. He kept us informed at all times--important to us, because we were already 3000 miles away. He promptly informed us of alternatives, and, while offering good advice, was content to let us make the decisions. Don't hesitate to choose him if you want an experience as good as ours. ~ -Roz
John Iglar and his real estate assocites were experienced, knowledgeable and always had our best interest in mind. We sold our property from many miles way and were always kept updated in a timely manner of any activity. We recommend John Iglar and his team for any real-estate business. ~ --Michael
John Iglar is a dream come true. He has the perfect composition of professionalism, sharp wit, great taste, and efficiency. We feel truly lucky to have been represented by John. Should we be on the market again we would only use him and only recommend him to our friends and family. He is definitely the person you want in your corner representing you as a buyer or a seller. ~ --Heidi & Todd Swaim
