Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Shoreline, WA.
Hey Everyone! My name is Brandon and I live in Eau Claire, Wi but I just bought a house in Shoreline, Wa. I want you to know that buying a house isn't easy but it is made harder when you live half way across the country. I contacted James Malsch online and he got back to me the same day. I flew out to Seattle to look for a house. I had 4 days of house hunting set aside. James said he would help me everyday all day. On the first day we started at 1:30pm. We looked at 14 houses that day. We finished the day by going back to a house we had seen earlier (so really 15 stops) and decided that we wanted to buy that house. James contacted the necessary people and we had a deal in place the next day.
James blew me away with his knowledge of the housing market and the city. Most importantly I felt like James had my best interest in mind the whole time. I am taking the time to fill this out because he was that great! He made something that should be stressful and some what difficult and made it simple and enjoyable! So not only will I recommend him to you but I am going to take time to publicly thank him right now. Thank you so much James!

Thank You Brandon and Jenny for the kind words! It was a real pleasure helping you find the right home for your family. I couldn't have hoped for better clients. I look forward to staying in touch and wish you all the best in your new home!

James was the consumate professional. He never hesitated on an answer no matter what question I had. His knowledge and expertise were apparent to me very early on. I felt quite comfortable with him throughout the entire process.
James provided me with great professionals to take care of me from the beginning of house hunting to the last day of closing. He was extremely confident which carried over to me and helped allay some of my worries. I am so glad that I chose him as my realtor. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor with vast experience and knowledge of the Seattle area.

James did a great job helping me find and buy an apartment. A very well established veteran of the Greater Seattle area, James can give you an unrivaled run down of pretty much any aspect of the property that you're interested in. If he doesn't know the answer off the top of his head (which isn't often), he'll make sure to dig it up and get back to you ASAP. James also goes to great lengths to ensure you have all the up to date information on the property you want to buy and that you understand the purchasing process from start to finish. Finally, James does a great job helping you prepare to move in and get all of your paperwork in order. He knows all the people you need to know to get settled in your new home from the home inspectors to home owners insurance agents. In summary, if you're looking for a friendly agent who will make your house hunting a great experience from start to finish, James Malsch is your man. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate agent in Seattle.
We were in a bidding war for a condo on Eastlake in Seattle. James helped us write up an offer and used his negotiating skills so that we were able to win the bid! We ended up selling the property 2 years later, and made a nice profit. He spent time to help us understand the process and what we needed to do so that we would be chosen to purchase the high demand condo. Our experience was A+ and we will use James for our next home purchase.
Sold a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $525K in Wallingford, Seattle, WA.
James was representing a high-quality seller. Everything was very transparent. And he knew people - lenders, inspectors, escrow agents - who were on the top of their game and we got the deal done expeditiously in spite of my lack of expertise and experience with property sales.
Showed home in 2009 in Belltown, Seattle, WA 98121.
James has taken me through several properties I have considered, he has also counseled me on properties in other areas I have contemplated as investment purchases. Since he has been in the industry since 1989 and has done a great deal of recurring training I feel he is an expert in his field and therefore I fully trust his judgement.
Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $625K in Ballard, Seattle, WA.
We used James to purchase our current home in Ballard. James took us on a couple day-long home viewing tours through the process and always came prepared with places to visit that met our criteria. His knowledge of the area was impressive. It was James who ultimately found the house that we purchased. He saw it come to market, checked it out on his own and called me immediately that it would be something perfect for us. Sure enough, we loved it and made an offer on the day we saw it! James has been available for us even after the purchase, helping us get our mailbox installed properly with the city and working with our builder on some follow up items. I would be happy to recommend James to anyone!
Bought a Single Family home in 2008 in Green Lake, Seattle, WA.
James helped me purchase my home at Greenlake and he was willing to go above and beyond to look up the parcel information with the city and got me all the pertinent information I needed. He was instrumental in helping me purchase the lot next the same home later from the city. He later sold the lot after it was permitted and ready to build. He is super responsive and quick to do whatever he can to help you. I would highly recommend him!
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $300K in Edmonds, WA.
James was great in helping me sell and purchase a home in 2011. He went beyond my expectations in finding the right place for our family.
During our efforts of buying a home, the market was just beginning to recover from the economic downturn. There were lots of homes in foreclosure and as such in disrepair, etc. Due to his experience in home sales, James was able to he us quickly filter out the listings and narrow our search to homes that were worthy of our consideration.
Also, at time of closure, James saw through every detail of the inspection and the resolution of any issues that may have arisen due to the inspection results. He made sure that these were reliably resolved.
You will find James to both professional and personable. We have been fortunate to have benefitted from his services since the year 2000, when we moved to the Seattle area. Since then we have sold and purchased 3 homes - all with James' help. We will certainly do so again when and if that opportunity arises again.
