Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Vacaville, CA.

Jimmy was amazing to work with , both in selling our home and then helping us purchase a new one. Our home sold within a few weeks above asking price. Jimmy was always available for any questions or concerns we had, and made the process so easy. His advice regarding getting our home ready, as well as what to list it for was right on the money. We could not have asked for a more smooth transaction. He took care of everything. He is not only by far the best Realtor in the area, he also saved us money selling our home, over $12,000 compared to what I was quoted by other real estate agents I interviewed. I would highly recommend Jimmy to any of my friends or family who are looking to buy or sell. He knows his stuff. Thank you so much Jimmy! You're the best!

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $675K in Fairfield, CA.

After trying to deal with my bank for many months on my own, I was introduced to Jimmy and his team through a friend that used his services in the past. After speaking with him in detail about my situation, I knew he was the one for the job. When Jimmy took over, he ran things extremely smooth. All I had to do was sign papers, sit back and relax. The house was only on the market a short while when the offers started in. We had short sale approval within 2 months, which was very impressive. Less than 45 days later, the house was sold and I was stress free. I am so grateful for Jimmy and his team handling all the details yet keeping me informed every step of the way. Thanks again Jimmy!!

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $500K in Fairfield, CA.

I would highly recommend working with Jimmy if you have to sell your home. He was so knowledgeable about the short sale process and all of our available options. Options we didn't even know we had. Before you work with anyone, I would suggest making an appointment to sit down and discuss your situation with him. He is a wealth of knowledge. Thank you Jimmy! Keep up the good work.

Sold a Vacant Land home in 2011 in Folsom, CA.

We were very impressed and thankful for Jimmy! He handled the short sale of our property in Folsom after 2 attempts with 2 other agents. The experience was fantastic! From the initial interview to discuss our situation to the negotiations with the buyer's agent and the bank, everything went smooth as silk. There was great communication the entire listing period and we always got timely updates and progress reports via e mail from Jimmy. If you are looking for an agent that can and will "make a difference" in your selling experience, especially tough short sales that others say no to, then Jimmy is Your Man! Thanks again for your professionalism and your short sale expertise Jimmy.

Sold a home in 2011.

WOW!! Jimmy and his team were exceptional! I don't often write reviews for many services, but I absolutely have to write one for Jimmy.

Unfortunately, I had to go through a short sale in Green Valley and had interviewed at least 7-8 other agents in the Fairfield area claiming to be short sale experts and none of them impressed me. Luckily I found Jimmy. He was a life saver. He spent a lot of time explaining to me the process and answered all my questions and concerns. He made me feel completely comfortable of what I was about to embark on and explained to me exactly what to expect. He was honest, straight forward, and very understanding. Once we officially started the process, everything went through smoothly with the bank and buyer. The whole process felt very easy thanks to Jimmy and his team.

I had a good basis of comparison as I have worked with many real estate professionals buying and selling properties throughout the years. I can't say enough about his customer service, he always answers my emails and phone calls extremely prompt even when it's late at night or weekends. He made me feel like I was buying/selling a multi-million dollar property, except that my property was only worth a little under $300K. I would never hesitate to go back to Jimmy if I ever need real estate help. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND JIMMY & his team.

Thanks so much Jimmy for helping me through a difficult process and a very hard time for me and my family. You are a real gem!

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $375K in Vacaville, CA.

We had a home that like most people that was greatly upside down in equity, we had a even bigger problem. We had four mortgages on our home and we needed to short sell it. We called several Real-Estate companies trying to get help with a short sell on our home. Everyone we called said NO, it can not be done with four mortgages. They all said the exact same thing to us they told us to just walk away, there’s nothing you can do. You cannot short sell a home with four loans on it. When making the decision to short sell your home, it is a very stressful decision to make. It is even more stressful choosing the proper Real-estate Company. We were given Jimmy’s card by someone else, so we set an appointment with him. Jimmy did not advise us to walk away; he said I believe I can do this. We were amazed, shocked and very happy to meet someone that would at least try to take on this huge burden of a sell. Choosing Jimmy Castro was the best decision that we could have made. Some of our biggest concerns were that we are not going to get calls back, or the realtor will not be respectful of our decisions, or of our home. We were also concerned that we would sign on the dotted line and then never hear back from our realtor. None of any of our concerns came to life. Jimmy Castro was the most comforting and reassuring person I have met in this field in a long time. Working with Jimmy made the entire transaction go very smoothly. The sell of our home seemed to us, to be one of the hardest homes to deal with because of all the loans. Jimmy had to basically have all four loan companies get on board, and agree to the entire transaction. It was pain stakingly hard. He was on the phone with these loan companies daily getting them to all come to an agreement on the pricing and the sell. We never once had to call and ask how the sell was going; Jimmy kept us informed every step of the way. When issues came up they were dealt with very quickly and efficiently. He would always have the solution to the problem before calling us and telling us the problem. I would highly recommend Jimmy Castro to anyone in the market to sell or buy a home, or if you are upside down and need help getting out. Jimmy’s entire team he works with get top ranking in our books.
