In 1985 I moved to the Sacramento region to further my career as a Law Firm Administrator. I attained my real estate Broker’s license in 1998 and after 22 plus years in the law firm management field I decided to offer real estate services full time in 2003. I have been a Top Producer for Lyon Real Estate for many years and I have earned the title of Executive Associate. I am also a continuing Life Member of the SAR Masters Club . 

I decided to become a real estate broker for 2 reasons: I believe my management experience, education and professional service orientation would be an added benefit for clients, and I wanted the satisfaction of seeing my efforts more directly help clients achieve their goals and aspirations. I continue to add value for them through ongoing real estate education, staying abreast of emerging technology and adapting to a constantly changing real estate market.  I work with integrity and honesty and I am committed to providing competent, ethical and professional service to my clients.

  When I am not working hard for my clients I enjoy spending time with my family. I have been married to my wife for 49 years and we have 4 children and 8 grandchildren and counting. I also enjoy reading, gardening, traveling, and being involved in my community. I am currently an active participant at the Downtown Sacramento Partnership’s Strategic Development Committee and a choir member at St. Anthony’s Church and periodically at the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament.  I am also a founding member of Greenhaven/Pocket Knights of Columbus.

John Woodall handled all aspects of the sale of our home efficiently and quickly. He kept us informed on all aspects of the sale and the pertinent information involved in the sale. He was always "reachable". We were extremely pleased with the sale of our home with John Woodall. He is an asset to the real estate field and he will continue to be the person I recommend my family and friends to if they are selling or buying a home.

As a elderly retired individual, it was of upmost importance that my sales associate take the time to make sure I got the best price on my house, and in turn find a new home that fit all my needs to live out the rest of my days. John Woodall took care of all those needs and more. He made sure my home sold for top dollar and worked diligently to find my next, and presumed, last home purchase. He worked tirelessly to find a property that fit all my needs, and negotiated the best price possible. I cannot say enough about the knowledgeable and personal care John took to ensure smooth, profitable and successful transactions of both the sale of my home and in buying a new. I would recommend John to anyone looking for real estate support. His professional care and personal touch is unmatched. [Represented Land Park (Sacramento) Seller/Shingle Springs Buyer]

John Woodall is a "find" when it comes to having someone help with your needs and requirements in purchasing a home. He worked so hard to find the right place that fit my needs and moved quickly and skillfully to lock the house in for me. Mr. Woodall will always be the first person I recommend to my family, friends and associates. I felt very comfortable with all aspects of this purchase and all the events of the purchase were explained in detail so there were no surprises. Mr. Woodall was aware of my working and home schedules and made every possible effort to communicate with me when I could give him my full attention. It was greatly appreciated when I know he had a very busy schedule. [Represented Buyer, Citrus Heights]

Availability, call backs placed timely, email responsiveness and most of all, very personable. John was super attentive to detail and paperwork. He was also very good at explaining how and what everything was. Can I put an "Most Excellent" on Patient?! I don't know how John can be so calm and patient through a home buyers/sellers stressful and emotional time! We can be ridiculous! So appreciated! John worked his tail off for us. He obviously enjoys his work and must get a lot of personal happiness from it. He is pretty amazing.

John Woodall did a wonderful job marketing the house. He kept us informed and was very hands on with helping us make decisions. As we were out of town sellers, John worked with the other professionals such as the pest control company and contractors we needed to help us through the sale. We received a fair price and would recommend John's services to anyone selling their home.

—Tim Quinn, Davi

John Woodhall was a pleasure to work with on this sale. More than anything, he made a difficult sale almost painless even though it involved moving three relatives to other locations and using several contractors that he was able to obtain quickly and efficiently. The inspections and contract work were completed in just a few weeks. His expertise in the field is without question. Even though I was advised that the date of listing was critical, I was not prepared for the speed of the offers (11 in one weekend). What John advised about the house actually happened. The house was only listed for 3 days. One hour or so of sorting them out with John's advice and the house was sold the next day. There is a dearth of competence in this world that, thankfully, people like John fill. Job well done and highly recommended.

John was wonderful to work with. Our property had been a rental and needed work before going onto the market. John worked with us to determine what upgrades needed to be done and what would improve the value of the home. He got estimates for various jobs on our behalf and monitored the progress of the work. He went beyond our expectation of an agent. We were more than please with his work and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to sell their home.
