Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $725K in Calabasas, CA.
James Helgager was an excellent agent for me. He was knowledgeable about every aspect of the sale and walked me through it step by step. He certainly went above and beyond in terms of service and availability. This was a new experience for me and I felt very confident of his ability to get me the best result and he helped me feel comfortable throughout the process. I would definitely recommend James to anyone interested in selling their property.
Amazing experience- highly recommended! He knows the area extremely well, helped us out tremendously in all aspects of selling our old home and purchasing our new one. He went above and beyond expectations. Couldn't be happier.
James Helgager was indispensable throughout the highly stressful process of the selling of our home. We needed to relocate to northern California during a tough sellers market and he was there for us all the way.
His extensive experience and knowledge as well as his reputation for dedication to serving his clients as a residential real estate broker gave us assurance that we would be in competent hands.
He is friendly, courteous and easy to talk to, always on top of things and always kept us informed of what was going on, even when we were out of town. He was by our side every step of the way during the negotiating and selling process and went far beyond our expectations through all aspects of the transaction. We could not have selected a more capable realtor.
I believe that anyone looking to buy or sell real property in this area would be well served by using James as his or her realtor.
James was really helpful as we looked for a house in the West Hills/Woodland Hills areas. He knew all the layouts of the houses we were looking at. And he showed us houses at any day of the week. He also helped us find problems with potential homes. When we found the home we would end up buying, he helped us see the potential and addressed our concerns. He had accurate estimates on what some of the costs were going to be, and it helped us figure out if this house was the right one, and if we could afford the changes we'd want to make.
During the negotiating process, he helped us buy the home at about 80K below the original asking price, and walked us through a particularly stressful escrow process. We were glad he was there with us every step of the way. He's really trustworthy, and let's you know what's really going on.
And we love the house now! We did a lot of low-cost changes, many of which James suggested, and we couldn't imagine living anywhere else.
He has since helped us find quality contractors (such as our floor guy and our gardener) in the area that are very reasonable in price. We still stay in touch with him, and we'll definitely use him again should we ever leave our house, although I think we're going to stay here for a long, long time.

James had excellent knowledge of the market and the area. He always provided professional and prompt service. He made sure that I understood the process of buying and selling a home. There were no surprises at the close of escrow and everything went smoothly. I have already recommending to other friends and family.
