Ratings & Reviews

I had the unique challenge of searching for a new home in San Diego, CA while still stationed overseas, literally on the other side of the dateline at Guam. So I needed a good agent who was intimately familiar with the area I was interested in and had the patience of working with a client who did not have the luxury of personally viewing each and every property that became available. Jim was an all-star and delivered big time. It was a six month process but I got the home I was looking at the area I was interested in. Jim was innovative and sincere. He personally viewed properties that he felt fit my taste and provided prompt honest feedback every time. As an example, one property early on our search became available and had the view, size, location, and was within budget. It looked very appealing online but my work schedule prohibited me from flying to California to view it. He viewed it for me during its first showing weekend and was sincerely honest in his opinion. The home was perfect except that he felt it had a foundation issues or had the serious potential of having major foundation issues in the future. His description were specific enough to reassure me that he was not only knowledgeable in the business but also had eye for finding blemishes within a home. That was all I needed to hear from him and we continued our search. The properties which which he felt were really ideal for me he made videos for me to view (some had funny narratives). I got a good feel of the home while viewing his videos from halfway around the world. Although it was a gruelling exhaustive search through that late spring and summer, I never felt the Jim rushed me into any decision. His patience persevered as he was open to do whatever legwork was necessary to find a home that was best for me. We made a few offers and during that process I also got a good sense of Jim's attention to detail. He walked me through every portion of the offer sheets in great detail and also on the counter offers we received. Ultimately we found the perfect home but ran into a timing issue with the seller. They were not ready to move out by the time I was transferring to San Diego. Again Jim delivered as he crafted up a rent provision in the offer. In the end, I got the home I wanted and have been thoroughly satisfied with the whole experience thanks mainly to Jim!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $475K in Lakeside, CA.

We recently closed on the sale of our first house with Jim and we can't say enough good things about him! From the first email he was friendly, professional, flexible and honest. We had many questions through the process and he was always patient with us explaining everything step by step, sometimes more than once. We have recommended him to everybody we know and would definatly use him again if we have any realestate needs!  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $775K in Point Loma Heights, San Diego, CA.

After buying and selling several homes, I finally found an agent who really know how to do his job. The time and effort Jim put into the marketing of our home in Point Loma was more than expected. In fact, everything Jim did was above and beyond the "call of duty." From picking up our mail when we were out of town to just stopping in and checking on things, etc. Jim was there for all the inspections as well as always being available if we had any questions and/or needed some advise. From listing to closing it was a joy to work with a true professional.  More Less
