My husband and I were looking to rent an apartment in Jersey City within a specific budget. James listened to our criteria and narrowed the possibilities so we saw a manageable number of apartments with our little toddler (who slept through the whole thing!). He drove us to the different buildings and described the neighborhood and the building amenities that were important to us. He showed us the perfect apartment that was slightly out of our price range but when we settled on it, he negotiated a lower price for us. The whole process was seamless and painless. James was personable and professional. We really enjoyed meeting him and hope to work with him again, if we ever have to leave our perfect apartment!
Helped me rent a Other home in The Heights, Jersey City, NJ.
James was amazing to work with and he made finding an apartment a breeze! He really listened to our needs and requests and found us the place to call home. His knowledge of the area combined with his understanding our needs took us outside of our initial narrow search area and into the perfect place. He was always in contact with us throughout the entire process and was very accommodating to our schedules. I would recommend James to everybody we know in a heartbeat!!
James is a true gem! I have started calling him "the broker extraordinaire" based on his skills, his easy and thoughtful manner and his ability and desire to go the extra mile. He is a pleasure to work with...above all else you want someone you can trust and James has my complete trust. I would absolutely recommend him as an agent!
James was very helpful in my search for a home purchase. His knowledge of the Hoboken market was excellent, and with his help, I was able to purchase a condo in less than two months from start of the process to closing. James was able to recommend home inspectors and attorneys and made my first home purchase experience an easy and smooth one.
I cant tell you enough how amazing James Alvarez is as an agent. After our initial conversation, I walked away with the sense of security knowing that he had my best interests at hand. What stood out the most to me was his honesty and professionalism, also backing up his knowledge with years of experience. He kept me up to date on all leads and his negotiating skills are awesome. I have dealt with numerous agents in the past but I cannot stress enough how James stands atop the list in my book.
Once again James, I say thank-you?.thank-you?.thank-you?.
Of all the agents I worked with (3 total) James was the only one who didn't jump the gun on lowering the price. Too often that is the "solution" that most agents come up with, but James took a different approach to try and drum up more traffic (he even offered to paint my kitchen for FREE) - and it eventually worked. I also used James to purchase my home 45 minutes away and he was always willing to make it out for inspections, etc. that I could not attend because of work.
I also felt that James had the pulse of not only the local market but of the other agents in the area, which I think helped out when we finally did sell.
James has assisted greatly in providing specific background information on the status of the real estate market in downtown Jersey City. This has always enabled us to make the best decisions regarding our rental property. He is always extremely helpful, very responsible and wonderfully personal. For any real estate needs in the Jersey City & Hoboken area, I wouldn't seek the services anyone else.
James was a wonderful agent to work with! He was extraordinarily knowledgeable about the area and the property and gave me confidence that I was making the right decision. I unconditionally recommend him to anyone looking for a new home.
