Our first real estate dealing with John Becker (aka Bald Head) was when selling our primary residence in Franklin, NC as  he was the agent representing the buyers.  Not only did he present a successful contract but the offer exceeded our asking price!  Since we were so impressed with his process expertise, responsiveness, and negotiation skills, in 2012 we listed and sold our second home with him.  John doesn't just wait around for the "right" buyer to walk in the office he aggressively pursues perspective buyers through professional contacts, extensive Internet exposure, and local advertising.  The video John produced of our home was HGTV worthy and initiated immediate interest. 

Just a few weeks after listing John presented us with an acceptable offer and handled all the details of the process through closing.  We were very impressed with his support and communication and would highly recommend his services. 

 If you are truly serious about buying or selling a home in this area you need a full time professional agent with local knowledge, and John Becker is by far the best choice.

listing, hires real estate broker

Founder and former CEO of, Colby Sambrotto listed his 2,000 square foot New York condominium on his own through online classified ads and FSBO sites, but after six months, he opted to hire New York broker Jesse Buckler who immediately advised a price change as the listing was not attracting the right buyer.

After giving up on the DIY route, Sambrotto's decision to hire a broker led to attracting multiple offers, closing for $150,000 over the original asking price. The Wall Street Journal reports the listing sold for $2.15 million including a 6% commission.

If you need a trustful, honest realtor with a great personality, contact John Becker. We are grateful that we found him. We were in Franklin, NC on St. Valentine's Day. We had a dream of finding our place in the mystic mountains of NC. Searching, we saw a sign "For sale" way off from the typical type, amused we called the" BaldheadTheRealtor" on Saturday morning, we met in one hour, he drove us to "The Place" and he worked through the entire buying process with high professionalism , encouragement and confidence . What drives him in his work it's not the profit he gains from transactions, it is the passion and love invested in it, that makes all the difference. John, thank you so much for making dreams reality, our dream, too and thank God for the good friend we found. More testimonials about Bald Head Here

John - I want to thank you for putting up with me over the past, I think, three years. I've mainly pestered you with questions about one MLS listing or another via the internet and email. There were several places that I let slip out from under me, but in actuality, most were more then what I really wanted. I stopped by your office this past April for more information and finally this past July, I again visited your office. You listened to my situation, showed me at least four places that fit my wantings and without pushing one way or another, allowed me to make a decision. Once I had done that, the rest was truly easy. I now own a vacation get-away in Franklin NC. I enjoyed getting to know you, and if and when I become a permanent resident of Franklin, I will use your services to upgrade to another place. Glad to have worked with you,

Norm Holbert Port St. Lucie, FL

Sep 10, 2011 John Becker was fantastic as our realtor. He helped us look at houses for over 2 years before we finally found the house we wanted and helped us navigate the short sale and foreclosure process perfectly. At all times he was professional, honest, and responsive. Thank you John and we look forward to having you as our realtor in the future. Thanks Chip & Mary Ann Godwin Chip & Mary Ann Godwin
Wendell & Karen ‎ - Sep 4, 2011 One Saturday on a whim I told my wife I was going to talk to John “Bald Head The Realtor” about some property I come across. After a short conversation with John he had formulated a plan. I was amazed that in less than a week we were on the fast track to owning the property. During the course of the negotiations John helped us overcome many potential obstacles to owning our first property in beautiful Franklin, NC. He always responded quickly to our questions. I soon became aware that this was a man I could trust - a rare find. My wife and I will always be grateful to John for helping us realize our dream of owning our own piece of this majestic land.

Kathryn P ‎ - Sep 28, 2011 Thanks so much John for being you as you are SUPER! My Dad and I were blessed that you were the listing agent on the home we first looked at as that led us to you. And you made our whole experience one that was so darn easy and pleasant. Working with you through the whole experience of looking at both homes was a total delight. Not only do you listen, you make the rather grueling process of home shopping to be fun. Thanks so much for your good humor and grace under pressure. Your smile alone made the paper signing go faster. You surround yourself with great people, too. From your assistant to your real estate attorney...all top notch and the nicest of folks to work with in the home buying process. I know I will certainly be recommending you to others and if I ever have to do this will be the first person I call. Kathryn Kathryn Pickens
Aug 22, 2011 "We have to admit that all of this "Bald Head" business seemed a bit much at first, but it took very little time with him to come to the realization that John "Bald Head" Becker is a very serious and effective real estate broker who in our experience and opinion is simply the best. Not only did "Bald Head" give us focused attention, maintained very active and prompt communications with us but also went way beyond our expectations in anticipating and filling practical needs. We would use him again in a heartbeat and only lament that we cannot also employ him to sell our house in Raleigh. We highly recommend "Bald Head The Realtor" to you and without reservation."
