Jim was referred to me by a past client. Once I met him he listened to areas I wanted to move to and immediately took me out. Narrowed it down to to my dream house. It was a beautiful transaction and I trusted Jim with all the details. If there was anything I didn’t understand he explained until I did and was patient with me.
My wife and I have worked and known Jim for the better part of 15 years. He assisted my wife and I in buying our first home which was likely one of the greatest investments for our family’s future. Without his expert assistance, guidance and ability to influence others I don’t know if that first home purchase would’ve been possible. I would personally recommend Jim to anyone that is looking to buy a home in the SF Bay Area. Having bought and sold three homes with Jim I have recommended him to a dozen friends, relatives and associates that were looking to buy or sell a home in the SF Bay Area. Every sale was different, but Jim’s experience and systemized approach was always a constant, willing to go the extra mile without being asked. From the pre-marketing, staging, professional photos, cleaning and repairs, he was there every step of the way, acting more like a trusted friend than a salesman trying to make a quick buck. His ability to negotiate through all of the details of the transaction, always eliminating the drama and focusing on a win/win objective, reminded us of just how important it is to have the right Realtor representing us. We would never have had the outcomes we achieved without Jim’s help. He made the deals happen! He has a love of the area, intimate knowledge of neighborhoods, especially in the Tri-Valley Area and he loves people. This enables him to understand his clients needs better than most and help ensure that they land in a neighborhood that suits their needs to a tee. Best compliment that I can give Jim beyond the words above is that he just made the process “fun”.
