Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $2.125M in Midtown, Palo Alto, CA.

John James was the agent we worked with when we sold our home. He was responsive to our concerns, knowledgeable about the local market and options for selling the house, and efficient. In addition, he was honest and always acted with integrity. We sold our house at an excellent price, and, except for the normal stress of moving, minimum effort on our part.  More Less

Sold a home in 2013.

In January 2013, my wife and I retained the services of John Forsyth James to assist us in the sale of our house in Palo Alto, Ca, where we had resided for 25 years. Immediately, John began discussions with us to recommend what he felt should be done to best prepare and present our home to the marketplace. After staging of our home was completed, John successfully completed a 3-day Open House for viewing by the general public. Shortly thereafter, we received and reviewed 21 offers for purchase of our house. Assisted by John's professional and effective negotiations, we sold our house for 35% over our original Asking Price.  More Less

Sold a home in 2013.

John represented us in two overlapping transactions of buying a new house and selling our first home of 14 years. It was reassuring to be led through the process of multiple bids on both ends in a fast-moving market with John's expertise and professionalism. The selling agent of the house we bought remarked on what a stellar agent we had working for us- that's how outstanding he is. His advice on pricing and bidding for both homes were invaluable. The turnaround on getting our home ready to sell was truly impressive and we were very proud of the open house, brochures, and website that showed it in its best light. When we bought our first home we were not fortunate enough to have met John yet; our experience with that agent showed she was not looking out for us in the same way. John has integrity and we highly recommend him!  More Less
