Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 in Hermosa Beach, CA.

Jim and his team are local experts and complete professionals. I have been a real estate professional on the commercial side for over 10 years, and Jim and his team are some of the best brokers I have worked with. Jim's team provided me with clear and immediate communication. I highly recommend them, and I will be utilizing their services when I buy my next home.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2012 in Hermosa Beach, CA.

Jim’s the best! We had the gambit of challenges; a divorce sale that was close to foreclosure, a loan broker with endless demands, and a credit rating hitch due to a utility company error. Jim provided the appropriate guidance and advice needed to work the process and close the deal. There were some very emotional times that made me want to walk, but Jim’s calm, professional and friendly demeanor put me at ease and helped me with a great purchase in my desired location. I felt like Jim was more of a partner and friend than just my realtor.

Jim is a true real estate professional who is happy to provide detailed explanations and reasoning behind his advice, as well as suggesting options. Jim has strong market and neighborhood knowledge, and provided great recommendations for inspectors and various contractors. I would definitely use him again for buying or selling a home, and I would highly recommend meeting with Jim before settling on a real estate agent.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $1.35M in Hermosa Beach, CA.

I was purchasing a house with a different agent who made a big blunder during the transaction and we lost the house. We noticed the house came back on the market and I contacted Jim VanZanten to help me get the house I wanted. Jim was so incredibly helpful. Jim does not hide behind a computer and asks to actually meet with you so he can go over important details in person. It was very evident to me that Jim is extremely knowledgeable and experienced in real estate transactions. Jim was able to put the deal back together and I got the house I wanted! Thanks, Jim!!

Sold a Single Family home in 2006 for approximately $725K in Redondo Beach, CA.

Jim helped our family when I was pregnant with twins to look for a house with more space in 2006. He was patient and experienced in negotiating to purchase our new house and sell our old house in a manner so that we didn't carry two mortgages. He explained the details of the financials to my comfort level and understanding. I trusted his judgement and he represented us with integrity and professionalism.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $425K in Hawthorne, CA.

Jim is one of the best, if not THE best agent in the South Bay. He listened to all our input, searched for homes that met our criteria and only presented us with the best options. He provided excellent insight into the market and found us the best deal. Jim has a great reputation in the industry and it carries a lot of weight. It's great to have him working for you to get the property you want.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $525K in El Segundo, CA.

Jim has been a client of mine for over 10 years and I've come to respect him for his professionalism and integrity in everything he does. I have referred him to friends and family to represent them in home purchases and they have all gone out of their way to thank me for the referral because their experience was so good. Mike

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.675M in El Segundo, CA.

Jim had the listing on the home we purchased. Ordinarily, we would have wanted a buyer's broker to represent us in the transaction, but after meeting and getting to know Jim and his colleague Susan, we were very impressed with their high level of professionalism, market knowledge, customer service, transaction process sophistication, and, above all, their high personal integrity. We would not hesitate to recommend Jim, Susan and South Bay Brokers to anyone buying or selling residential property in the South Bay Beach Cities.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Elizabeth, CO.

My husband and I have known Jim personally and professionally for over 25 years. His experience is invaluable. Jim and his staff provided excellent recommendations for any work that we needed to have done to the house before marketing. Everyone involved with the sale from his office were courteous and knowledgeable. We have recommended Jim to many friends in the past and will continue to do so.
