Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $625K in Davis, CA.
Jamie Madison is the embodiment of warmth and professionalism. In September 2009, we were brand new to Davis, and were fortunate enough to see Jamie's engaging and informative website. She responded to our Sunday evening call promptly and arranged to show us the house we were interested in seeing first thing Monday morning. She was unquestionably the most welcoming, patient, and well-informed real estate agents we have worked with -- and as people who have moved often, we know many agents. At the same time, she became our loyal and tireless advocate. Discovering there were already 4 offers on the home we wanted, she flawlessly guided us through the steps necessary to make ours the winning offer. There is no question that without Jamie's superlative efforts, we would not be living in our wonderful home.
Jamie was highly recommended to me by a friend (she helped her buy her 1st home ). As a first-time home buyer, Jamie's expertise of the local market and her warm/engaging personality made my search process very pleasant and stress-free. Jamie will go the extra mile for you, taking the time to educate you about the process and all the subtleties and nuances of buying a home (esp. the unique aspects of the Davis market). She has great feel and intuition for the type of home that will be a great match for you. I would highly recommend her to anyone searching for a home in the Davis/Sacramento area. She's an A+ agent!

There is no other agent one should work with if wanting to buy a house in Davis. With the competitive market and low inventory, it's important to have someone like Jamie walk with you through the process. No hint of buyers remorse 9 months after we bought our home.
Sold a Single Family home in 2010 in Stonegate, Davis, CA.
Given the terrible state of the real estate market when we put our house on the market in April 2009 we would have to say our experience overall dealing with Jaimie was very satisfactory. She has a lot of energy and works tirelessly for her clients. That we put our house on the market and sold it some 7 months later, as we said, in a terrilbe market, speaks to Jaimie's tenacity in working to market her listings.
We put our home on the market at a price that seemed reasonable at the time based on comps then currently for sale in our category. This price seemed all the more accurate when a comparable home on the next street brought in a quick offer not too much off their asking price. That offer eventually fell through and that event marked the beginning of readjustments to our price in a very tough real estate market. We quickly became aware that, while our home had some appealing features, there were also some huge negatives that were holding back the few potentially interested buyers. Jaimie tactfully made us aware of these drawbacks, realizing that she would not be serving us well if she withheld pertinent real time data, however negative that might be. We eventually found an asking price that brought a very good buiyer and we sold and moved on. Incidentally, there are homes that were on the market when ours was, that are still on the market, at prices that are from a different time, not soon to be replicated. A good realtor will work with clients to find a price that reflects not only clients' dreams but current market conditions. Jaimie is that sort of real estate agent.
