      Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $775K in Scripps Ranch, San Diego, CA.
      Jim worked with us tirelessly over many months to help us find the right house. He made a special effort to make himself available to view the many houses we saw. He was always on time, always helpful and never rushed us in our deliberations. Jim also oversaw the selling of our house and sacrificed many Saturday's to be present when our house was open to viewing. His warmth, friendly manner and professional approach were attributes we came to highly appreciate in the strategic role that he played for us.  MoreLess

      Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $425K in Lake Murray, San Diego, CA.
      When we decided that we wanted to start the search for our first home, we were both nervous and excited. We contacted Jim at Decision Realty Group after our close family friends referred him and we are SO glad that we did! After our first meeting with Jim our apprehension was washed away and we were confident that we would be able find the perfect home for us. It was clear immediately that integrity and communication are as important to Jim as they are to us, so working with him was a breeze. He made himself available to us (by phone, text and email) to answer any and all questions that we had. This was important to us since, as inexperienced home shoppers, we relied heavily on his experience to help guide us through the major task of purchasing a home.

      With the automated filtered listing updates and his own insights, we actually had a lot of fun searching for a home. Even though we are a young couple with high expectations, Jim never made us feel like we needed to compromise, settle, or rush through the home buying process. He was very patient with us, even as our criteria changed based on our own understanding of what we valued in a home. When it came down to the business of writing an offer and keeping up with the intense schedule that follows, Jim was amazing. In fact, while there are clearly a lot of moving pieces that must be managed, Jim kept everything so organized and communicated to us perfectly what was required of us, what was required of the seller and what the potential outcomes could be following each step.

      The home that we chose was a 'flipped' property, being worked on by licensed contractors and sold by investors. It turns out that the contractors that the investors hired were working with expired and suspended licenses. This is when Jim's experience really paid off for us. Recognizing the potential for such issues in a 'flipped' property, he had the sellers complete a specialized renovation disclosure which served to identify and protect us from a "lipstick job" (Jim's term for a remodel which is poorly done and simply covers up the real issues with the house). This disclosure stated that the work was done by licensed contractors, and since we learned that the licenses were invalid (Jim looked up the contractors license numbers), Jim had them hire new licensed contractors to review the work that was done and sign off on the work. While no new repairs came out of these reviews, it did provide peace of mind for my husband and I as well as the inherent protection of using licensed contractors.

      When we met to get the keys to our house, Jim and his family were waiting for us to welcome us to our new home. It was very special, and we are so grateful for all he did to help us buy our dream home.

      Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $400K in La Mesa, CA.
      Jim Long was an amazing real estate agent. We highly recommend. He was personable, honest, patient, and very kind. He helped us find our dream house, which as first time home buyers, was more than we could have imagined for ourselves. He worked with us for over a year and showed us over 80 houses with no complaint. He asked us very detailed questions to make sure he was looking for what we wanted. His wife was so kind to give us a beautiful housewarming gift basket as well to celebrate our purchase. We now call Jim our friend, not only our real estate agent. He handles business with the utmost integrity and professionalism. We give him our STRONGEST recommendation.  MoreLess
