Helped me rent a Single Family home in Elk Grove, CA.

I would surely recommend him to my friends and family to find a house either for sale or for rent. He is knowledgeable in real estate and easy to deal with in negotiation and even finding household needs.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $300K in Antioch, CA.

I used to have other realtors in assisting me to acquire a property and it always fell through. Then I met James. First time I talked to him, I was impressed with his broad knowledge about acquiring a property -- I am not taking about the knowledge that you can just get it from the book. Unlike other realtors, he did the homework prior to the visit to the property we were going to see. He knew all the facts about the property--that is a plus because the decision, either we wanted to go ahead making an offer, could be done faster. He knows the market price and could give us a recommendation if the property was under or over the market price. He truly works on the client's side. We put an offer on two houses we like and we got both of them. It never happened to me before. I finally picked one of them. He did not just leave us even we already made an offer and got approved by the bank. He closely helped us in the process. He even helped us to find house and terminate inspector with the best deal. He truly does extra miles. Overall, I am very satisfied with his service and highly recommend him to others when it comes to purchasing the house.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $375K in Lincoln, CA.

Completely worry-free services provide to clients especially who are the first time buyer. Even though there are tons of document to sign, he can explain them in simple terms and remind you every action to take in the buying process. He can actively negotiate/communicate with the agent and follow them up closely when the offer is made.  More Less
