We’re first time home buyers working full-time. We were overwhelmed and intimidated by the whole “buying a house” idea. John and Sandy went above and beyond the call of duty to provide professional and personal care in the entire process. In our situation, they represented both the seller and buyer( a sticky place to be!), Yet they treated both sides fairly and we felt well-represented. Hands-down five stars!! Thank you for walking us through this phase of life!

From David & Tita

We had an amazing experience buying a home with John & Sandy. They are great at making sure that you understand all aspects of the process and are quick to answer any questions even when they were on vacation! They walked us through the whole process and made everything so clear and simple. Also, everyone they recommended to us was great as well!

From Rex & Ashley

Working with John and Sandy was wonderful! They kept me well informed, answered all my questions, and made the process fun and relatively easy. They were always so responsive and timely, and I knew they were on my side. If you’re looking for great realtors, you’ve found them here! I’d absolutely recommend them without hesitation!

From Tayleranne

John and Sandy helped my mom sell her home this fall 2017. It was as most sales filled with ups and downs HOWEVER, John and Sandy took care of the issues with the greatest of ease. Everything was done in the most professional way and it was so appreciated as selling our 90 year old mother’s house wasn’t an easy thing for us to do.

From Pam

You two are excellent at what you do!

From Ken

We knew from the moment we met that this experience was going to be wonderful. You sat with us & really listened. You encouraged us with the knowledge & skill you both have so much of. We have enjoyed every aspect of working with you. You were honest, maintained integrity and made us feel so comfortable. Through the journey of buying & selling we have gained more than just homes. We have gained you and your friendship. You both are excellent at what you do & are a dynamic duo! We will forever recommend you to people we know or who are looking in the real estate arena. We love you! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

From Kipp & Katie

Just wanted to say thank you to John & Sandy for the outstanding service they have provided during my search for a home here in Salem.
Being new to the area I wanted to see it all and with utmost patience we did see a lot of homes. Every question and phone call (and there were lots of them) was answered promptly and courteously. In every aspect of the process from searching to closing they set the standard of what you expect from a true professional.
Would highly recommend them for any one looking to buy or sell property.
From Joseph

I am so very blessed and pleased to have been directed towards John and Sandy Van Dyk at Paramount as a first time home buyer. They quickly answered my questions, offered various perspectives and freely shared their wisdom at each stage of the process. The encouragement and care they displayed for me and my future home only added to my complete trust in them. My house-hunting journey was exciting and smooth (even while overseas), and I highly recommend them!

From Melissa

Thanks so much for all your hard and diligent work. It’s been such a blessing to have dedicated professionals listen to our needs and back us up all the way to the finish line. We are grateful for our house and value your friendship. Thanks John and Sandy for representing us well.

From Michael & Miranda

Thanks again for helping us sell our home! It was a blessing for us to work with you two and we so appreciated the way you helped us through the ups and downs of selling!! We trusted you to guide us through and you did an amazing job.

From David & Marjorie

We recently finished our journey with John and Sandy, first selling our beloved, little bungalow and then buying our new family home. We appreciated their consistency and commitment to helping us get the best price for our house and then finding the next perfect place for us to land. They respond very quickly to text and email, which was important to us. They also work with a great support team, so are able to offer lots of recommendations on resources like contractors and inspectors. We had lots of laughs and groans and frustrations and eye rolls through this process and were so thankful they were by our side for the whole journey. I would recommend them to make this often complicated process close to stress free.

From JJ & Jana

I want to thank you both so very much for all of your efforts in helping me find the perfect home! I so much appreciate how attentive and caring you were throughout the process. I always felt that you were both looking out for my best interest. I know in my heart that the Lord put you both in my life during this season. God bless you always!

From Pete

John and Sandy Van Dyk were fantastic. Highly recommend them to anyone selling or buying a house. Honorable!

From Lavelle

We are so happy with our buying experience and how attentive John and Sandy were to our needs and desires. The care and detail they put in to our house hunt was amazing! I have and will continue to recommend them!

From Maryanne & AJ

It was such a joy working with John and Sandy as first time home buyers! We had lots of questions and the Van Dyk’s made this process smooth and peaceful for us. They are especially good at communicating- anytime we had a question or wanted to tour a house, they responded quickly. We always got the answer we were looking for in a very short amount of time. They were also great at catching our “vision” for the type of home we wanted. They listened to our preferences and brought homes to our attention that fit our budget and style. They also patiently toured over a dozen houses until we found what we were looking for. At the end of the process, we didn’t just purchase a house, we became informed, equipped homeowners with their expertise. We are SO happy with our first house- it’s quickly becoming the home we’ve always wanted.

If you’re looking for a team to walk alongside you in your home buying journey, pick John and Sandy!

From Kenny & Katy

Thank you for all the time & effort you put into my house search. It was much appreciated!

From Stephanie

Thank you so much for all your time, effort and wisdom in helping us find a home. You were wonderful to work with and we enjoyed our time with you.

From Kip & Megan

We wanted to thank you for all your help in the selling/purchasing of our home. We know you went above & beyond with the buyer and we are so grateful. May God continue to bless your efforts.

From Leo & Jen

LaVelle and I cannot say enough how much we appreciate your hard work and commitment in helping us through this journey. Despite taking seven months to sell, it is amazing the house was truly on the market a total of seven days between offers. Throughout the process your words of encouragement, your unflagging devotion, and your personal connections with other professionals assured us we would have a successful outcome. Thank you so much for all you did. You both truly went above and beyond. You are both SUPERSTARS in our book.

From Bill & Lavelle


I purchased a home in Monmouth, Oregon from John and Sandy. They made the whole transaction/experience very pleasant. Both John and Sandy communicated well with me and I could not be happier. I could tell John and Sandy had my best interest in mind and I would HIGHLY recommend them. Thanks John and Sandy!!!!
