Sold a home in 2014 in Bassett, Avocado Heights, CA 91746.

I'm an attorney practicing for almost 30 years and I have NEVER run across a more competent, bright, responsive, reliable and energetic broker/agent. In a recent transaction dealing with a unique property and a difficult buyer, every time there was an issue, Geremy was able to quickly read the situation, provide me with sound alternatives and give me with the right suggestion or recommendation. As a result, from start to finish, from preparing the property for sale, to listing it, to finally closing the sale, everything went smoothly when it could have easily gone in the wrong direction and the sale closed without a hitch faster than anyone thought possible.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $350K in Chino, CA.

Geremy was patient, diligent,& dutiful in the sale of my home. It was a long process because of my personal financial problems. Some of the problems we encountered were getting permission to sale from the Ch.13 courts, finding a buyer and keeping the buyer interested throughout the process (9 months) and negotiating with the lender after being so upside down. I truly believe 98% of realtors would have gave up on my wife and I. Geremy was honest with us throughout the journey and informed us of every possible scenario. I am extremely happy this process is over... Thank You D. Gilbert Chino, CA.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Fontana, CA.

I would like to express my deepest appreciation for the way Geremy Yamamoto handled the recent sale of my home. I contacted him with an Urgent sale due to relocation of my job to Dallas TX and he personally came to my House that very day to discuss the matter. My House was sold in record time, and to me, he went beyond the call of duty. Moving is stressful enough, however, he has made our transition a much smoother and stressless process. Due to his diligence and dedication, we were able to purchase a new home in Texas simultaneously and not have to deal with renting or hotel expenses.

Again, my wife and I, cannot thank Mr. Yamamoto enough for what he has done for us as his clients. We feel like we have received "top notch" service. Jose Ortiz

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $375K in Fontana, CA.

When I asked my wife’s opinion on writing review for Geremy with CaliState Realty, she just text me these vocabularies: Sincere, Friendly, Knowledgeable, Confidence, Prompt, Patience, and Good. I was hoping that she could write a review for me, lol. Then I found these words are actually very true about Geremy Yamamoto, I could just use these words to describe my experience with him. If you have time to read the details, please read on.

He is Sincere and Friendly. I met several other agents from other companies, and some of them just want me to get whatever house, they don’t care about how I feel and what I want, all they want is get it done, get their commission, and get over with. Some even gave me “don’t waste my time if you aren’t cash buyer” attitude. This is not the case with Geremy. When he deals with me, he was very sincere, he asked me what I want my dream house to be, the exterior, the interior, the location, the condition, and most importantly – the price range. Then he will customize the MLS listing, not just automatically have the MLS system send me the house that I am not interested. When I review his MLS listing, I feel he was listening to what I told him, and he only choose and pick the houses would meet my needs and wants.

He is Knowledgeable and Knows What He is Doing. He knows his territory very well, and he knows who the major players in the area are. This is a great benefit when the listing agent and seller need to choose some close bidders, and help my case to stand out. He is also Knowledgeable about a lot of terms, such as HUD, Bank Owned, Property Tax, Mello-Roos, etc. Trust me; there are agents out there, who can NOT answer these questions.

He is Confidence. While other agents told me my price range can’t find any house in the area, Geremy told me it is easy to get me a house within a short amount of time. And he actually did it! I first contacted him on 3/22/2013, we signed contract with the seller and listing agent on 4/12/2013, escrow started on 4/15/2013, and closed on 5/15/2013. During these times, there were some issues arise, the biggest one was the seller wanted to cancel the deal. Geremy took care all of them.

He is Prompt. He usually will get back to me immediately by phone, text, or email. Sometimes he couldn’t and I understand that because I am not the only client he has, and if he is showing house to his other clients, so he can’t answer my phone. When he was working with me, he won’t pick up phone call from his other clients as well. I like that, this is very respectful. If he can’t get back to me immediately, he will get back to me within the next 24 hours. Even when he was in the conference out of town, he still trying to get back to me asap.

He is Patience. I am a first time home buyer, and I have a lot of questions. Some of them maybe even sound dumb to him. He would spend time to answer all of my questions. He even go extra mile to walk through the estimate cost of my property tax and assessments with me. He helped me to aware about this cost and how much it would be.

Geremy Yamamoto is Good. Even after we got the key and close all the transaction, he still response my email, text, and phone calls. He even would answer me questions that is not related to his job. With all that said, I strongly recommend Geremy to all of you who want to buy a house within his territory. With all agents I have met and I have heard, Geremy is one of the best.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Fullerton, CA.

Geremy is a wonderful realtor. We purchased a property in Fullerton, but live about 4 hours away. This made it rather difficult to ask fast, especially in this market. Geremy took videos of properties that we were interested in, and sent us a link so we could view without making the drive to Fullerton. He was quick with email responses, phone calls, and text messages. It was a great experience, and quick process. He found a condo for us in less than 3 weeks, within our price range. We also know that the seller's realtor liked working with him (and probably the reason they accepted our offer!). We would not hesitate to recommend Geremy to any of our friends and family.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $175K in Moreno Valley, CA.

I was referred to Geremy by 2 of my very close friends/colleagues who both purchased their homes in Inland Empire area (Rancho Cucamonga) with his help. They gave glowing recommendations about him so it was kind of a no-brainer to go with him when I started my home purchase process.

I had a great experience with Geremy. He listened to our needs and aspirations to get a handle on what type of a house we were looking for and then set out to find a house that would fit all our criteria. He advised on what type of properties to avoid, what to look out for during a showing. My wife had an extensive list of requirements (lol) and Geremy would take us to only those houses that would fit every singly criteria my wife had.

In this market environment, most of the sales are "short sales" as we all know. Geremy is so experienced and has such a good feel of others that he will let you know which listing agent in his opinion will be able to get a "short sale" approved by the bank and who wont. Just because a house is listed as a "short sale" doesn’t mean it’s approved for it and it’s up to the sellers (and primarily listing agent) who will be able to get it done. Listening to Geremy's advice helped us avoid a lot of endless wait and hassles and disappointment in this market.

Also, one of the greatest things about working with Geremy is that you are dealing in a "no pressure" environment. A lot of realtors try to push you towards properties just to try to close the sale but not Geremy!! Geremy was more than willing to drive us to more than 2 dozen houses to find us that perfect house that we would end up calling our "home". He negotiated us a fantastic deal and got us everything we wanted. He also explained all the arcane, complex terms that are in the contract or disclosure statement in plain, easy to understand language.

Bottom-line, Geremy is incredibly professional, has a great attitude, knows the local real estate market incredibly well and is a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive to our needs and also would quickly get back to any questions we had.

A home purchase is THE most significant investment that a person will make in his life. Picking the right person to advise you and guide you through this is absolutely essential. For us, Geremy is that guy!! Looking back, I can see why both my friends liked Geremy that much!! I will recommend him wholeheartedly for anyone trying to buy or sell a home. Let him guide you too through your home purchase and you won’t be disappointed!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $375K in Ocean Crest, San Diego, CA.

My experience working with Geremy was excellent to say the least. Like most people, I have always dreamed of owning my own home, I just wasn't sure how to go about it. I contacted a few lenders and found that I would not be able to get the type of house, or live in the type of location that I wanted to on my own, based on what I was approved for. As it turned out, a good friend and co-worker of mine was in the same boat as me and after a long conversation, we decided to become partners and roommates, thus our journey into home ownership began. We contacted a few realtors and recieved some information on a few homes, but the two realtors that we spoke with seemed to either be too busy to answer our questions, or just flat out didn't care about our business! Being first time home buyers, we were beginning to get a little discouraged about the whole process but then just decided that this must be "just how the business is". That is until we found Geremy. Like I said, both my partner and I were first time home buyers and we had many, many questions. Geremy never once was condescending in his conversations with us and took his time to fully answer all of our questions. This was definitely a different experience than we had had dealing with the other two realtors. Geremy listened to all of our concerns about what we were looking for and showed us multiple properties that he thought might be right for us. During this time, his positive attitude and enthusiasm for helping people really put us at ease and made the whole experience better than I would have ever expected. Once we did come upon the a property that we absolutely loved, Geremy walked us through everything step by step, negotiated everything with the seller, and ended up getting us our property at a great price! The whole experience working with Geremy actually changed my thoughts about the real estate market being nothing but a business, to it being more of a "people" business. It is clear to me that Geremy has a vast amount of knowledge and expertise in his field, but I believe that what sets him apart from others in this business is his positive attitude, and his genuine interest in trying to help others. I would definitely recommend Geremy to anybody looking to buy or sell a home and will work with him in the future for all of my real estate needs.
