Bought a home in 2011.
After working with James on the purchase of our home, I would not consider working with anyone else. James was extremely professional, knew absolutely all of the ins-and-outs of the market and process, negotiated with ease, and tended to all of our concerns and wishes. As this was our first home purchase, I really appreciated all of the time he took explaining the buying process and helping us become knowledgeable about buying a home. He was also very patient with us and did not push us to make a decision hastily. When we were ready to buy, James went the extra mile and helped us pick a mortgage broker who also went above and beyond. James helped us find a home that was in our price range and successfully negotiated to get us a fantastic deal. I would recommend James in a heartbeat!

Bought a home in 2011.
James has helped me buy 4 investment homes in the Houston surrounding area. I live out of the country therefore I found his name on Zillow. I took a chance with him and it has paid off quickly! He finds the homes, completes the negotiations, with my approval, than finalizes the deals smoothly. Once I have purchased the investment property he advertised the home and has rented the property out within a very short time, sometimes within a week! He has found someone to do the repairs for the homes, if needed, and has gone above and beyond to make this a successful investment for myself. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He is ethical, honest, and obviously someone I trust with my investments.

I can't thank you enough for the complimentary review! I know how stressful buying an investment property can be and that is amplified being out of the country. It has been my pleasure working with you and being your Houston specialist. Thanks again and I look forward to our continuing our business relationship! Thanks again, James

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 in Houston, TX.
I give James 5 stars because of all the stipulations we needed to meet while purchasing our home. We had a 3 month time period we had to buy a home as well as needed to maintain our low-end budget for buying a home. James was very helpful and understanding of every issue we had he even offered to come look at the house we were renting for free to see if it was purchasing. I knew instantly this was someone who cared about our situation and was genuine in his work ethics of actually caring about his clients. Initially we thought we had 2 choices we could either get a nice house in a not so nice area or a small house in a good area and were willing to bend one way or the other.James was very efficient at showing us houses that we were actually interested in! On our second trip out of looking at houses he found that needle in a haystack for us a house that was much bigger than we expected to be purchasing in a quiet well taken care of neighborhood. This being our first home I was frequently asking James his opinion on things that were happening.He always had the correct answer for our situation and a great network of amazing professionals in all areas of purchasing a home. He explained our situation to me in a way that I could understand which always makes me comfortable knowing the person I am dealing with knows all aspects of his line of work.When it came time for us to make an offer on the house he knew the exact figure to bid to get ours accepted(which I did ask his opinion on!) After our bid was accepted the Inspection company he suggested was better than I could of asked for. They were very professional and was able to help us renegotiate our contract. Again I asked James what he felt would be a comfortable figure to renegotiate and once again he gave that sweet spot number and got us even a better deal on an amazing house! Though this is our first time buying a home we cannot think of a realtor doing a better job than what James provided for us. He's very friendly ,professional, and really cares more about the person buying the house than the sale. I have told everyone I know who's interested in purchasing a home to contact him.He answered any question I had and was great at alleviating the stress of a first time home buyer. His negotiating skills are unparalleled as his initial bid and renegotiating skills were right on target for the seller to accept. He was always quick to reply to my calls,emails, texts even when he was out of town on vacation! I wouldn't even consider using another Realtor after learning the way this man treats people! Thank you James! Our dreams came true with the help of James Krueger!

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 in Cypress, TX.
James was wonderful! I had my house up for sale over a year with another agent and was getting really discouraged. When my contract was up with the other agent, James listed our home and helped me get it ready to sell! We had a buyer the first month! He was also extremely helpful during signing process in dealing with title company, etc.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Houston, TX.
James met with my wife and I last month to discuss assisting us with selling our house. We are needing to relocate to Austin and were a little worried about how long it would take to sell our house because of the state of the real estate market right now. James sat down with us at our home and explained the entire process to us, including the sales comparisons in our area as well as his customized marketing that his firm uses to sell client's home quickly. James also helped us in re-arranging and staging some of the rooms in our home. Within a week of that initial meeting, we had a contract in place-We ended up closing a week later!

I truly believe that the marketing techniques that James uses sets his firm apart from others. The professionally taken photographs, flyer presentation, listings on the internet, and signage are the best I've ever seen, and I have personally sold 8 homes.

I would highly recommend James and Krueger Real Estate firm.

I can't thank you enough for this awesome review!! I feel that our marketing is a clear advantage but it is always great to hear from a client that has the same high regard. I hope all is well in Austin and I look forward to working with you again if you move back. Thanks again, James

Bought a home in 2012.
After firing our first realtor we called James who was the realtor on the house we wanted to see. Upon calling him late on a Sunday afternoon and telling him about our previous experience he presented us with lots of listings to go look at after listening to what we was looking for. He showed us only what we wanted to see and didn't try to push us on something else. And when we found a new home that a builder had and decided that was the one he fought back and fourth and negotioted a price that would give us equity from day one. James turned our home buying experience into an enjoyable one. He is the only realtor I would recommend to anyone and will be the only realtor I use in the future. Thanks again James for your hardwork and dedication while still taking care of everyone else. There's needs to be more of you in the real estate world.

You’re very welcome, Walter. And thank you for taking the time to leave a great review. Your recommendation means a lot to me. I was happy to come to the rescue! But really, I was happy to listen to what you wanted, help you find it, and fight for the best deal. That’s what I’m here for. I hope you are enjoying your new home, and I look forward to working with you in the future. Thanks again, James

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Richmond, TX.
James worked very hard for my wife and I. We gave him an idea of what we were looking for and he took that idea and presented us with a plethora of options. As we moved along he was able to narrow the scope of what we were looking for, which with us greatly shows his skills as a real-estate agent, and found us the perfect home that we are very pleased with. He was prompt to any appointment we made with him (even the ones we were late for). He was very prompt in calling you back in the rare occasion that he happens to miss your call. He is extremely knowledgeable of the loan process, buying process, and rules of the loans and is very willing to help and explain things that you may not understand. He went above and beyond the spectrum of helping us that I have not seen other real-estate agents do. We were greatly pleased with him and would recommend him to everyone.

It’s important to me that I’m there for whatever you may need, whether helping you to determine what you want in a property or to understand stipulations around home loans. I look forward to keeping in touch from here on out, too. It’s wonderful to hear you are enjoying the house! If you ever need my help, please don’t hesitate to call. All the best, James

Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2012 in Cypress, TX.
Was professional when discussing to list the house, after the house was listed was only contacted once and never informed about any showings. When informing him that we were choosing to go with another realtor he asked "was there anything that I could have done to keep the listing?" and was informed that we would have liked to be more informed of our listing and he replied with that he did not have the right email address for correspondence in regards to the showing, but when he was sending the contract he had the correct email address. Have chosen to go with a more experienced realtor this time around.

UPDATE: James Krueger called to harass us about why we left a bad review, and requested that this review be edited or deleted. I hope this further shows the unprofessionalism of James Krueger. Also filing complaint with TREC for the breach of contract, in which James Krueger was to notify when showing the house and when open house were to occur. I encourage any that are having trouble with James Krueger to also file a complaint with TREC, James Krueger's Lic.#573025.

Response from James on 05/16/2012
I’m sorry for the confusion and frustration. I’d like to explain as this wasn’t typical of us. Our showing service automatically sends an email letting clients know about their showings. We thought you were receiving the notifications, but we entered your email address incorrectly. It was our mistake, careless but honest. When you called, we immediately corrected this. I’m sorry if you felt harassed. I did ask that the review be changed as I felt it did not properly reflect the service we provided. There was a breakdown in communication, but we still accomplished much in the short time your house was listed: professional photos & flyers, hosted over 28 showings & an open house. I apologize for the mistake and appreciate the opportunity to list your home. This has also been a learning opportunity for us. To prevent this from happening again, we now call our sellers weekly to touch base. We wish you the best of luck, and we’ll keep your home in mind for our buyers. Sincerely, James

Bought a home in 2012.
I worked with James to get my very first house. He made it a very easy process. He helped me search through a number of houses until we found the right one. He is always there if any questions need answering and always gives great suggestions. I will recommend James to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. He is a great realtor!!
