I had the pleasure of working with Jim St. Clair while searching for my first investment property. We looked at dozens of homes over a two year period. Jim insisted that we wait until we find the perfect property which we found in October 2013. Jim's extensive knowledge helped us get an amazing deal on a lovely home that will serve as a great investment for many years to come. I am incredibly happy with the way the deal worked out, I couldn't have done it without Jim. I'm looking forward to working with him again soon.

Great Agent! My partner and I purchased our first investment property from Jim and we couldn't be happier! We were looking for a place that was a solid investment in an area we both wanted to live and Jim found us some great options. During the sale he provided excellent advice and proved to be an tenacious negotiator.
He is a great agent if you are looking to invest in real estate. Jim knows the area and whats a junker or a jewel. He will save you time and money because he is working for you - period!
Showed home in 2012 in Fairmount, Eugene, OR 97403.
We were considering the purchase of a Eugene home for our son who was a freshman at U of O - figuring it would save us rental payments and generate income during his undergrad program. Jim proved to be an excellent source of detailed knowledge and wisdom, showing us a variety of suitable properties over a range of price points. He had clear understanding and presentation of the dynamics of the Eugene market, and the effect of the growth of the university on pricing and property availability. We found Jim very responsive, but not pushy. We were particularly impressed with his willingness and ease in working with our son and his friends, listening to and respecting their viewpoints, and providing them with thoughtful advise and guidance. We would not hesitate to recommend Jim St Clair to others.
Bought a Single Family home in 2010 in Amazon, Eugene, OR.
Jim is extremely knowledgeable about values and locations in Eugene. He acted as our buyers agent as we shopped for a rental property, and we now have a steady income from our purchase. Jim had ideas about how to remodel the building to meet our income desires, and was familiar with the building permit process. He was able to refer additional resources to us to complete the remodel and manage our our investment - service from start to finish.
Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $600K in West University, Eugene, OR.
Jim was able to put together a deal that served all parties. He know exactly the market conditions, had the right contacts, and negotiated terms in a very professional manner. If you are looking for guidance in the Univeristy of Oregon campus area, he is your expert!
Jim was able to help me find a steal of a deal for an investment property, negotiated terms, and helped me to close quicker than I had expected. I am not an Oregon resident, and would recommend Jim to anyone looking for a realtor with local expertise and a knack for negotiations.
Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $300K in South University, Eugene, OR.
I have used Jim as an agent several times for the purchase of rental properties since I moved to Eugene. His real estate roots run deep in the community. This enables him to have advance knowledge of properties that have not yet hit the MLS. Once a property is selected, Jim is right on he money in his estimate of repairs/remodel costs. His bargaining skills are excellent, his advice is clear and succinct and his energy level is second to none. Because of Jim's advice, my investment portfolio has almost returned to pre-2008 levels.
