Ratings & Reviews

My wife and I recently bought our 2nd home with Jim's help. We are picky, indecisive buyers but not once did we ever feel pressure from him to buy something. He is extremely knowledgeable, patient and easy to get along with. He walks you through the process of buying a home step by step and does everything he can to reduce the stress of the experience. He is a true professional focused on providing excellent service.<br/><br/>Jim is very responsive to questions and is always looking to provide an answer. Another bonus is that Jim is great with kids - I have a 2 and 5 year old. It got to the point where my five year old was bummed that we weren't going to look at houses and hang out with "mister Jim". Even after we bought our home in Folsom, he checks in to see how our remodel is going, offers to meet with our contractors and will even make sure our front door is locked!<br/><br/>Finding a good "fit" is important in my opinion so perhaps a different type of agent better suits your needs, but I highly recommend Jim. I think he is great choice to help with the process or at the very least should be on your short list of potential agents.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Citrus Heights, CA.

I was given a recommendation to call Jim after a less-than-stellar experience with another realtor. So I called Jim and told him my relatively challenging/abnormal purchasing situation (that I am buying a vacation home in Sacramento area and would unable to come view the homes in person) and he assured me this would not be an issue - and it wasn't.

I felt so comfortable having Jim there as my eyes and ears that I literally had no stress about this purchase at all. With the knowledge he brings to the table regarding selling trends, details of home repairs and renovations, and not to mention the technical aspects of managing multiple offers and counter-offers, I did not have any worries that I had found the perfect realtor to help me through this potentially difficult purchase.

Jim always returned my calls promptly and gave me all the necessary information, and often found answers to questions that he anticipated I would have without me even asking. I was extremely impressed with his depth of knowledge as a skilled buying agent, fellow home owner and personal confidant through the process. His demeanor was always pleasant and I truly felt at ease because he is clearly capable to perform in all areas of real estate.

I never once second-guessed Jim's judgment, from virtual (FaceTime) showings to offers to closing, he was a first-class real estate agent and I would whole-heartedly endorse him to anyone.

Thank you so much, Jim! My new home is perfect.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $200K in Folsom, CA.

Jim helped me and my wife by a house back in 2011 and he was extremely helpful and efficient. We ended up having some unforseen problems with the plumbing in the home and I called him early mornings and late nights sometimes to ask questions about what we should do as we were first time home buyers (clueless). He was always gracious enough to extend his knowledge and experience and we are very thankful to have worked with him in our first home purchase. I'd recommend Jim to anybody and should we decide to sell/buy again I'll most certainly be giving him a call.

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $325K in Carmichael, CA.

Jim worked tirelessly to help us find just the right house. We must have looked at more than 50 places, and he never gave up. He sold our old house in one day, and when it came time to sell our rental, he once again came through. I have handed out many of his business cards and will continue to recommend him.

Bought a home in 2012 in Beatrice, West Sacramento, CA 95691.

When I first started looking for a home I had a limited budget but high expectations of location being a single mom with a small daughter. I told Jim what kind of a home I'd like, location and price and was amazed during the whole process how he kept exactly what I wanted in mind. I'm just about to celebrate my one year anniversary of home ownership in my ideal neighborhood and home I love and it never would of happened without Jim Phillips and his amazing wife Pat Phillips who have become like family to my daughter and myself. I highly recommend Jim Phillips to help with any real estate needs!

Sold a Single Family home in 2009 in North Pointe, Sacramento, CA.

We found Jim through our neighbors, who highly recommended him because of their outstanding experience using him as an agent (both buying and selling). Jim helped us sell our house. We were very grateful and impressed with his knowledge and patience as we navigated the short sale experience back in 2009/2010, when the real estate bubble had just burst. It was a very long process, with MOUNDS of paperwork. Jim explained everything that came up in plain English, with good humor, and no signs of frustration. He continues to make himself available to us to answer our questions and help us understand our options as post-short-sale buyers. He also has an impressive network of referrals to help with anything real-estate-related (such as financial planning, legal issues, property management, etc.). We will most definitely use Jim as our agent in our next real estate transaction, and always recommend him to others.

Bought a Single Family home in 2002 for approximately $800K in Granite Bay, CA.

We worked with Jim Phillips to purchase our house.

Jim was very knowledgeable about the area, and he was able to help us find our perfect home. At the time, we looked at many homes before deciding on the one we currently live in. We would work with him again if we were selling or buying another home. Great service.

Sold a Single Family home in 2004 for approximately $475K in Tracy, CA.

Jim helped my family purchase a home in 2004 and sell the same home in 2012. He is very professional and has expert negotiation skills. I have known Jim for a long time and would (and have) recommend him to my closest friends. He's caring, honest, trustworthy and really knows his field! Our next home purchase will be with Jim!
