James Baxter

    • James helped us buy a home after we had two short sales - he helped us find a lender who had great rates; we tried on our own before we were introduced to James but could not even obtain a loan, let alone good rates. He made everything easy and was very available and knowledgeable. We would recommend James to everyone.

    • James was there to answer all our questions so quickly and efficiently. We definitely did not make the process easy for him but he sure did for us. He got us over asking price for the place we sold and an amazing deal on the place we bought. We felt great about the entire transaction and have referred friends to him already. I would most definitely have James sell and buy for us again. He really listened to what we wanted and worked with our tricky schedules! Thanks again so much for making what could have been stressful so very easy!!

    • We found James through a referral from a friend and we couldn't have been happier with his performance. He was extremely knowledgeable about the market, the local area, home features and remodeling options. He went above and beyond to assist us with vendor referrals and quotes, even meeting vendors on site when my wife and I couldn't make an appointment.He is direct and effective without being pushy, and was extremely patient and accommodating during what turned into a fairly long house hunt. He also brought an iPad to entertain the kids when looking at a few homes, brilliant!We are happy we got the opportunity to work with James and love our new house!

    • We purchased a short sale home that had only one open house with the best offer being taken to the bank. Of the 6 offers received, we were not the highest offer, but considered "the strongest." My wife and I believe it was a direct credit to James who not only put together the strongest, most appealing offer for the bank, but also had a good reputation with the bank's realtor. Unfortunately for him, he did such a good job in getting us our dream home, we're never going to move, but we've already recommended him to friends and family.

    • James arrived at our very first meeting completely prepared with a market analysis and comparable sales in the area. He was incredibly knowledgeable, and we knew right away the sale of our home was in good hands. Through print and digital media, he marketed our home aggressively, and within several days of putting our home on the market, we had an interested buyer. The rest, as they say, was history. Furthermore, we know now in retrospect that James' efforts fetched a price for our home that was much much greater (in terms of price per square foot) than any other home in the area that has sold in last two years. GIven the uncertain market conditions that existed when we sold our home and the success that we had despite this fact, we cannot attribute this to luck. James had everything to do with our success in selling our home, and we cannot recommend him highly enough.

    • James helped us every step of the way. He always went out of his way to make sure that we were taken care and felt comfortable with this major decision. I recommend him highly to anyone looking at buying or selling a home.

    • James Baxter is, by far, the best realtor in San Diego county! James is extremely personable and able to get to know his clients well in order to understand their needs and help them best. He spent over a year with us before we found our perfect home. He never made us feel like we were taking too long to find "home" and he always had good advise during the process. Our purchase was a short sale and James held our hands during the entire process... we could not have found it, understood it or closed on it without James in our corner. James is the BEST!!

    • James assisted me in finding and buying my home in March of 2009. James was amazing, he showed me 20 houses in one day, he knew the urgency in my finding a home as well as my limited finances but that did not stop him from treating any different than if I had been a multi-millionaire. James installed new locks on my new home once the keys were handed over at the end of escrow and has always kept in touch. James also had my safety in mind, if he didnt' think the area was safe for me, as I am a single woman, James would tell me that he didn't think it would be a good fit. James doesn't look at the amount of money he will make on the deal, James looks at what will make the buyer happy. James new that my dogs having a fenced yard was priority for me and he made sure that the homes he showed me would be condusive to my dogs needs. James will always be the ONLY realtor I will refer or use in future sales or purchases.

    • James and I have worked together when I sold my house. He setup a time that was convenient for me and took time to give me all the information I needed to make smart choices on how to sell my home. When I had a question, he responded promptly either by voice or text to answer my questions. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to sell or buy a home!
