Ratings & Reviews

Kory is the definition of inept, ineffectual, and incompetent, not to mention when I called him to task with this - he had the nerve to say that I disrespect women - simply because I called his assistant out every (numerous numerous) times she made a mistake, and that I was a 'little guy' for putting my complaints to him in email and hiding behind electronic communication. Very very unprofessional. <br/><br/>He also claimed that out of the supposed 600 homes he sold, I was the only dissatisfied client, which I'm sure is untrue, heck - the electrician he recommended to my wife & I basically told me that his deal with Kory fell through and that he only answers his phone calls now because he occasionally gives him a good client. <br/><br/>As background, I am a seasoned real estate investor owning several properties out in AZ and other states, but I am not licensed nor do I invest in CA so my wife/I needed an agent to do the paperwork on our behalf and guide us through the unique rules of CA law. However, as a seasoned investor, I knew when something was going wrong.<br/><br/>First, the condo we bought - Kory wasn't even there for when we first saw it. He had to leave after 2 hours on our first Saturday out together for his son's football game. Now, if you want to sell houses - you commit to your clients, but I was willing to let that slide.<br/><br/>However, during the process it became quickly clear that he was inept and not used to working with someone who knew what they were doing, and probably primarily works with first time homeowners. Not to mention, his family obligations kept preventing him from going to several key meetings and dates, forcing me to leave work and take care of it. <br/><br/>He and his assistant were not quickly accessible, and the one thing we really needed him to do - which was negotiate with the developer, he couldn't be bothered with - and basically told me to work with him. This put my wife & I in the awkward position to deal with the developer and not be as hard negotiating as we needed to be, because after we closed, the developer was still going to be around for 6 months. <br/><br/>Then, as we got close to closing, our loan almost fell through due to incorrect paperwork and we almost lost $10,000 in closing credits due to his assistant and him not getting an addendum drafted and signed.<br/><br/>Therefore, I had to draft a very last addendum (the day before COE) write the verbiage, and get it filed. His response? "Do you think your documents walked themselves into escrow?" That's how he justified his commission. <br/><br/>If I could have made sure he wasn't paid, I would have, and even tried to file a complaint with the DRE but since there was no fraud or misrepresentation, I had no case.<br/><br/>Unfortunately, most real estate professionals are OK at best, but if you end up with Kory - look elsewhere.

Bought a home in 2012 in Windsor Hills, Ladera Heights, CA 90056.

Showed home in 2011 in Crenshaw, Ladera Heights, CA 90008.

Mr Jackson was instramental in identifying commercial spaces for my business. The amount of time and dedication to the project was well beyond my expectations. I would recommend Kory as a first option for all real estate transactions to my family, friends and business associates.

Showed home in 2011 in Los Angeles, CA.

Kory showed me a couple of homes and apartments on the market for purchase. He was patient and descriptive during the examination of the property. He is very knowledgeable and clear in his explanations. Kory was timely and kept me informed throughout the process.

Bought a home in 2011 in Westchester, Los Angeles, CA 90045.

In March 2011, I was a disgruntled first-time homebuyer that had seen numerous homes with various agents. Most of them weren't knowledgeable in the LA areas that I wanted to live or in their trade.

I found Kory online and decided to give him a try. I didn't expect much, but was pleasantly surprised. :) He answered ALL my questions, even the ones that I sent late at night via email. And he knew the areas that I wanted to purchase in.

During our property visits he never hounded me to put in an offer. He allowed me to view the home and then afterwards I said yay or nay. And that was it. I said a lot of nays to properties, so for months we kept viewing properties.

Finally in October 2011, I visited a property that I wanted. He emailed the comps, we discussed what price I wanted to offer, etc. After the offer was submitted he provided me with regular updates on the status.The closing went smoothly. And I'm happy to say that I am now the owner of that property.

Kory came through and guided me through the entire home-buying process. I think he's a great agent and I would definitely recommend him to someone looking to buy a home.

Bought a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $225K in Downtown, Los Angeles, CA.

Kory made my first time buyer experience extremely smooth and easy. The best thing about Kory is his ability to be positive and realistic at the same time. He was very respectful of my time and made me feel like I was his only client. I trusted his judgement from Day One.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $200K in Compton, CA.

It was truly a blessing to have met Kory. After 4 years of house hunting, my mother and I finally closed on a home in January 2012. Kory went above and beyond to make sure we finally closed on a property we could both live with!! He will always be more than an agent to us. If not for Kory and his prowess, I don't think this dream would have been made possible. Thank you so much!

Helped me rent a home in Paularino, Costa Mesa, CA 92626.

I have worked with Kory on repeat occasions and I really appreciate his integrity and resourcefulness. He strives to truly understand and hone in on my needs. He has an engaging and strong presence and has exceeded my expectations on each occasion. He's able to make buying or selling a home a more enjoyable and rewarding experience -- after all finding the 'right home' should be just that. I'd most certainly recommend Kory.

Sold a home in 2011 in Southeast Los Angeles, Florence-Graham, CA 90001.

Does his research as far as what the comps are. Weighs all necessary aspects in helping customers decide on list price. Kory is not pushy for the sale. He's patient with the seller. He keeps in constant communication with his customers. He's very knowledgeable about real estate. He's a great real estate agent.

Sold a Condo home in 2008 for approximately $250K in Inglewood, CA.

I was fortunate to have Mr. Jackson as my real estate. Mr. Jackson has a profound interest in helping individuals and families find their dream home. His knowledge concering all aspects of real estate was exceptional. His personal virtue is equal to his professionalism. Mr. Jackson returned all of my phone calls in a timely manner, hosted open houses as scheduled and most of all he listened and met my expectations. My property sold in 30 days! I highly recommend Mr. Jackson for all of your real estate needs.
