"What''s different about Jim the Realtor?  I am hands-on, I do the work myself. I even answer my own phone, try calling it: 858-997-3801.  I also follow the market closely, and discuss it daily on my blog www.bubbleinfo.com - a resource for all.

I aggressively market my listings on the internet, especially with my video tours.  Last summer, a home I had listed was purchased by buyers who never saw it in person -  their agent said that my video was such an accurate representation that they were satisfied!

There are no laws, rules, forms, or guidelines on how to handle bidding wars.  I have specific strategies for sellers and buyers!

I believe in transparency.  My sales count posted here at Zillow are the homes I sold myself, not by assistants.

You can call, or email me at jim@jimklinge.com to see how I can help - I''m happy to speak with you, with no obligation, to demonstrate how I can help you.

Select your realtor carefully - investigate what we can do for you, agents should be able to demonstrate their value clearly. The blog will give you great insight about my expertise.

Team reviews

Jim and the rest of the team at Klinge Realty did a fantastic job helping us navigate through a complicated buying process. His knowledge of local housing, experience, honesty, sense of humor, and expeditious handling of the paperwork resulted in a great outcome for us. He also shares his real estate wisdom through one of the best blogs in the business, which made me a much better informed consumer. Also, after we moved in and found a potentially major leak (it wasn't), the Klinge team went above and beyond to get us help right away. I can't imagine what else you could ask for in an agent and brokerage.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $800K in Tierrasanta, San Diego, CA.

I was a reader of Jim's "Bubbleinfo" blog for a year before we listed our house with him. It is rare to find a realtor blog with useful local content, instead of cut-and-paste from national sites. Working with Jim, Kayla, and Donna was a breeze, because they are organized and prepared. Calls and emails were always returned quickly. The listing focused on the best features of our house, and Jim's photographer did a fabulous job. We accepted the best of 3 offers a couple of days after hitting the MLS. Jim kept in close touch throughout the escrow process, and there were no hitches. We highly recommend Jim Klinge!  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.575M in Solana Beach, CA.

We have used Klinge Realty to buy one house and sell another. We have also recommended Jim and his staff to friends of ours. Jim is a no-nonsense guy who will give honest opinions, has a ton of experience and understands the local real estate market better than most anyone. He listens to his clients and does his best to meet their needs. He is by far the best realtor we have worked with and recommend him unconditionally. He also has a terrific sense of humor which is really valuable when you're dealing with buyers, sellers and other realtors ;-)  More Less
