    John Viken

    Hi my name is John or "Jake" and I'm a full time resident here in the Yuma Foothills!
    I specialize in the Yuma Foothills area and have listed and sold properties here for the past 10 years. I work with all types of land and residential buyers and sellers. I listen to your needs first, I'm reliable and dependable (I will always answer or call you back within 24 hours), and my #1 goal is to provide you with excellent customer service from our first meeting to your escrow closing!

    I am originally from Nebraska, where I graduated and went to Wayne State College where I rec'd my 4yr degree in Business Aministration and Marketing/Managment. I worked for about 10 years for a food brokerage company in Omaha. Then I went to work for a Fortune 500 pharmaceutical company in Omaha in 1992. I was promoted quickly to a District Manager position and moved to Minneapolis, MN. where I worked the next 16 years for a total of 3 Fortune 500 pharmaceutical companies. After all those years of travel and cold weather I decided to go south to Yuma, where my parents had always wintered. I became a Realtor in 2010, and have been selling real estate full time ever since.

    I look forward to meeting and working with you soon!

    John never gave my wife and I the "hard sell" approach that some agents we have worked with in the past did. He found out what we wanted and took us to look at several properties. We made our decision and he went to work without a lot of calls or fuss. When we wanted to make changes to our offer, he presented them to the owner without trying to change our minds to protect his sale. We are grateful that he was our agent and we would be happy to work with John again. ~ Dennis and Diane H. Yuma Arizona
    We worked with John Viken previously and were extremely satisfied with how he handled our transaction. Our present transaction went just as smoothly. We highly recommend John to anyone looking to buy or sell property in the Yuma area. He is very knowledgeable,professional, and always responds quickly to any questions or concerns we may have. Thank you John! ~ Curt and Diane Peterson Yuma, Az
    We found John's name on a listing advertisement, called him to see a home and he was very helpful and not pushy. We had called John several times over a two year period looking for a house in Yuma. He was always very helpful, patient and whenever we called him, whether to see houses or ask questions about them, he always helped us out. Whenever we called him to look at houses he was always very timely, if he didn't know the answers to any questions we had he would find the info and call us back. We finally found the right place, John wrote up the offer, help us through the process and, since we didn't lived 1300 miles away he helped us with the inspections, walk-throughs and everything else. We can't say enough nice things about him. My husband's sister and brother-in-law were helping us find a house and they ended up having John list their lot and helping find them a house, also. ~ Terry H. Myrtle Point, OR
