Jim Bottrell

    • My first true interaction with Jim was when I was in escrow buying a home (with another agent). I found him to be a very nice and informed person so I asked him some questions. What surprise me was how much he helped us - even though he had no part of the sale and there was no financial gain in it for him. Regardless, he HELPED US when things got very difficult and our agent didnt have the answers. In fact, I remember saying to him, you are telling me what is about to happen while the agent that I hired is asking what just happened?' When it came time to buy again we obviously called Jim. He proved to have superior negotiation skill and got us the house of our dreams way under what it was actually worth. An absolutely wonderful experience! A couple of years later, when it came time to sell one of my rental properties I called Jim again. This time was a little different though - he wasnt just Jim anymore, he was 'The Bottrell Team' and he now owned a real estate company. No matter though - he still kept a very personal touch with everything he did for us and his team ran largely in the background taking care of smaller things so he could concentrate on the big picture. I never had to worry about him failing to take care of a pressing issue because he was out putting a lockbox on a home or running paperwork from place to place because his team took care of those issues for him - allowing him to focus on what needed to be done. Our experience with Jim and his team was once again a truly enjoyable experience and I encourage anybody wanting to buy or sell to all him.

    • I was referred to Jim Bottrell two years ago and he helped me buy my home when I was PCSing to Camp Pendleton. I was so pleased with the process that I referred several friends to him over the years - all very impressed with him. So when it came time for my orders to Okinawa, I called him to sell my home. It was a little different now though - in the two years Jims business had grown substantially and he now had a team and his own company. With that comes his team so he was not just an individual agent trying to handle all aspects of a real estate sale. Jim was crucial in helping us decide what things to do before sale and what things not to do. He had points of contact for everything and followed up to ensure everything was done correctly. His marketing skills were evident when we received MULTIPLE OFFERS on our home the first weekend. The Bottrell Team expertly negotiated these buyers up well over asking price which proved to be a nice and unexpected windfall for my family. There were a LOT of moving parts with our escrow considering that we were moving out of the area combined with a buyer that was moving into the state. Neither the Buyer nor the Seller were preset near the end of the transaction but Jims team kept it all together and protected our interests all of the way to the end.

    • When I was looking for an investment property in the North County San Diego area, I was hoping to find someone with experience in this type of property who would know the desirable rental areas. I was also looking for someone who was ethical, had a good work ethic, and took pride in what he was doing versus just trying to sign another deal. In particular I was looking to buy a property at a good price in a family neighborhood that would attract desirable tenants. I found what I was looking for in Jim Bottrell. He had extensive experience in listing and selling investment properties in North County San Diego. Having been a member of the armed forces and based in the area himself, he was also very knowledgeable about which areas were better than others in terms of hot rental markets for military families in the North County area. I trusted in his knowledge to put me in the right area and I was not disappointed. He found the perfect Single Family residence in a great area where I was easily able to find a good tenant right away. I would definitely use Jim again when Im in the market for additional investment properties

    • My husband and I were looking for a home to purchase for over a year with no luck. We spoke to several realtors but were unable to find the help we needed. As soon as I contacted Jim I felt like I was finally moving forward in my search for a home. He is the best and only helpful agent we found. His knowledge about properties, lenders, and all things real estate is amazing. Within a month or two we had found a great home. Jim did not waste our time showing us homes he knew we could not buy. We purchased our wonderful home and he made the process smooth. He helped me out through the whole process and helped me understand the procedure of purchasing a home. We trust his advice and know we can go to him for any questions we have. We then received surprise orders to Hawaii, so Jim and his team assisted us with renting the home out for the next 3 years. No problem, and stressless for us. Jim did everything. After the 3 years we decided to sell. Again, as always, Jim was there for us through the entire process. We needed to sell fast. Jim found us a buyer in just a couple days. The process was again so much easier because of Jim who helped us the whole way. Any home buying we may do in the future-I would not go to anyone else. Jim is great to work with. I highly, highly recommend him. I have given his number to 2 different friends of mine looking to buy or sell

    • I have had the good fortune to have worked with Jim & Jessica Bottrell on several real estate transactions, both as a seller and a buyer, and I wouldnt work with anyone else. They are both true professionals and a pleasure to work with. Jim has made transactions work despite incredibly challenging circumstances through his broad range of knowledge in real estate and his ability to navigate through a sale despite obstacles. His work ethic is outstanding as is his ability to negotiate in the marketplace. He has a wide range of knowledge in the field that ranges from sales, to purchases, mortgage issues and property management. There were many times through many transactions that I didn't think things would work out but Jim, Jessica and the Bottrell team made it work!Jim & Jessica & their team are great at communicating and they are always available for questions or to find a way to make something work. It is rare to find someone who has such high ethical and professional standards who also has the knowledge of the market and the wide degree of experience Jim & his team have

    • Having worked with the Bottrell team for both our home search and buying as well as home selling, we can truly attest to their being the best there is to offer in the Broker industry. During the search for our home in North County, from day one, the Bottrell Team were 100% committed to finding both a place we could call home and a quality property at a good value. Jim and Jessica have a plethora of experience that allows them to provide expert advice while searching for your next home or investment property as well as the keen understanding and integrity that are essential for a successful negotiation process. We also had the privilege of working with the Bottrell team on a second occassion as we prepared to move and sell our home. They again proved to be a trusted source for knowing when to list our house on the market as well as the best methods to use when showing the house in order to draw quality interests for buyers and meeting any and all expectations in the sale of our home. All in all, the Bottrell team provides a personal relationship with Brokers that you will get to know and trust with your home experiences whether you are looking for a new home, an investment property, or selling either. I would recommend no other team to trust with my business! Thank you Bottrell Team

    • The first time I met Jim was at one of his open houses. I was impressed with his knowledge and honesty from the start. I sat down and went over what I was looking for in a house and what my price range would be. within a few hours I had a website set up with all the houses that fit within my search criteria. As i started choosing houses to look at I would let Jim know what. We would meet and discuss the varies houses before we went and walked through them. Jim would be very well prepared for each and every house we looked at, He knew everything about the house from the actual SQ. footage when it differed from the listing to any additions to the houses not listed. I was really impressed by the knowledge and honesty he showed. whenever I had a question he always gave me the answer even when it was something I didn't want to here. I started bidding on a few houses and was coming out short, due to the fact I was a VA buyer and there were investors and cash buyers biding on the same houses after about 10 lost bids i was frustrated and decided to start looking in the Murrieta / Temecula area at the time Jim didn't work in this area and I had to start using another realtor. After a few weeks I realized this wasn't the same caliber of real-estate agent I had grown accustomed too, so I called Jim and explained the situation. Jim gladly went and got Licensed in this area and drove out here every few days to look at houses with me and we eventually found an amazing home that I'm very happy with. I couldn't have done it without the help of Jim and his wife Jessica I'am grateful I walked into that open house and met them

    • Jim made the whole shopping for a home experience a pleasant one. I learned a lot about real estate thanks to Jim. He will show you, explain in details, and walk you through out the whole process without hesitation. His professionalism, dedication, and excellent work ethics, are top notch. He will always look for the best offer to keep you in your budget or spending limit while locating the best property as well. I do thank Jim and his team for all the time and effort they put on my purchase and also to help Me become a proud home owner

    • Jim worked tiredly on a problem property that I had tried to market for several years and got a deal done in 90 days. His ability to work a transaction for all sides is exceptional and his focus on detail from initial escrow to close was outstanding. I would highly recommend their team.

      - John C - Encinitas, CA
    • I cannot say enough about how impressed I am with The Bottrell Team! I originally met them at an open house a couple of years ago while looking for an investment property. I was immediately impressed with their knowledge of the investment market and the nuances that go with it. As it turned out, that knowledge came from the fact that they both own their own investment properties - so it made sense that they knew exactly the things that are important to investors. Jims team immediately found an undervalued property and got us in escrow despite offers from other agents/buyers - even though we were not the highest offer. One thing I should mention - Jim has great negotiation skills. He has the ability to find out what the other sides minimum needs are then he meets them. I have seen that this is the difference when he competes against lesser agents. A great team to have on your side - cant go wrong!

      - Jim - Oceanside, CA
    • I had the misfortune of having to short sale my house. The banks were not at all helpful. Jim was both professional and persistent. In the end Jim was able to close the deal. Jim walked me through every step of the process. He is very knowledgeable and driven. I would highly recommend Jim to anyone looking to buy or sell a home

    • If you are selling or buying real estate in the San Diego area, it is my pleasure to highly recommend our familys real estate agent: Jim Bottrell and The Bottrell Team. As a General Counsel for a large nationally known franchising company, having specialized in legal transactions and regulatory compliance for more than 25 years, I know that residential property sales are highly complex legal and financial transactions featuring the most important set of contracts that most people will ever sign. It is therefore shocking that so many people select real estate agents who do not have a proven track record of successfully completing many deals. The vast majority of agents do only a few deals per year and if you choose someone like that, it would be like your choosing someone who performs brain surgery as a weekend hobby.My wife and I have utilized The Bottrell Team for both the purchase and sale of our San Diego home. Yesterday we closed escrow on the sale of our home and we are 110% satisfied with The Bottrell Teams representation and the end result that representation attained for our family. Here are the specifics that separate them from other San Diego real estate agents:Distinguished career as an officer in the U.S. Marine Corps. Highest possible integrity.People Skills: Friendly, personable, poised and calmly reassuring during an inherently stressful process.Responsiveness: Days, nights, weekends or whenever, they are instantly there to communicate with you.Listening Skills: They skillfully paid sharp attention to our specific concerns and priorities. Meticulous attention to detail: There are thousands of details per transaction; they didnt miss one.Pricing: Whether youre buying or selling, they have the expertise required to price properties correctly.Financing: Jims prior mortgage industry experience helps you whether you are a buyer or a seller.Repairs: They put us in touch with their recommended contractors who fixed up our home so it showed in pristine condition and sold for substantially more money, netting us a huge ROI.Reputation: Their strong reputation works for your advantage when they are negotiating on your behalf.Lastly, let me reassure you that I have received nothing from them in return for this endorsement. It simply gives me great pleasure to endorse and highly recommend this consummate professional, Jim Bottrell and The Bottrell Team, so that they can do their typical stellar job for you, as they did for us, in your next purchase or sale of real estate in San Diego.

    • The Bottrells' helped me purchase my first house and sell it. My goal from the beginning was to use the house as an investment property. Jim helped me understand how that would work and what the best options to accomplish my goal would be. From day one my experience with Jim and Jessica was above and beyond anything I expected. Jim was completely honest about all aspects of the buy and sale. Jim was always fully prepared in every step of each process. If anything ever came up I could call Jim at any time of the day and he would get back to me immediately. When something had come up with the paperwork I completely trusted the Bottrells' to take care of it and they always did. Throughout the time I owned the house Jim even found me great contractors when I needed them and even personally helped me fix some issues around the house when we first purchased. His knowledge of construction was impressive. Overall Jim and Jessica's knowledge of the market and each process was highly impressive. Negotiations were always smooth and painless and came out better than I expected. I have always highly recommended the Bottrells' and will continue to do so.

    • We first met Jim at an open house that we attended in Oceanside. We were not prepared to purchase at that time, however his presentation at that open house stuck in our minds. When we were ready to purchase about 6 months later, he was the first and only real estate agent that we contacted. We cannot say enough great things about our experience. He showed us several great properties that met our requirements and guided us throughout the entire process. This was our 4th house purchase and by far Jim has been the best realtor we have worked with. He truly took the time to explain everything which made us feel very comfortable. When it came for us to relocate, Jim again was the first person we contacted. We had an accepted offer on our home within a week of going on the market. Should we ever move back to the Southern California area, we would consider using no one but him to assist us in looking for our new home. We wish that we had such a great realtor here in the sunshine state.

    • We met Jim in 2009 when we bought out house. Even though he was the selling agent, he treated us like we were his buyers. He was very professional and courtious. His demeanor speaks very highly of his integrity. Even to this day, we still stay in contact with him. He recommended some outstanding people when I told him I was doing some renovating in my house. He has great resources. I would definately recommend him and his team and will definately not hesitate when I have real estate questions. If you are looking into buying a home, go to one of his open houses and experiance it for yourself.

    • I am writing to comment on the wonderful experience that I have just had with The Bottrell Team in selling my house. After interviewing several realtors, I was ready to list my home with a USAA affiliated realtor who was offering me a $1500 credit on the sale of my home. However, I was convinced to hold off signing with the USAA realtor until I could sit down and listen to what The Bottrell Team could do to sell my home for top dollar. I am sure glad that I did! Not only did The Bottrell Team demonstrate superior marketing strategies, techniques, and abilities to sell my home, they backed it up with RESULTS. They suggested an aggressive listing price (actually MORE than I was thinking my home was worth) and within 3 days, they had MULTIPLE OFFERS on my home. They then used what can only be described as superior negotiating skills to drive the price even higher. We settled in above the already aggressive asking price! I am so happy that I made the decision to go with The Bottrell Team and will enjoy the extra cash they put in my pocket. I recommend them with the highest enthusiasm!

    • When I started looking to sell my home I fisrt started searching online to see what was out there and how much similar properties were going for. I first went through a home service provided by the bank and interviewed multiple agents. Then based on a search I had done on their website the Ardent Real Estate team contacted me. They had an excellent presentation which made the decision easy. The process of selling my home was easy and I was kept up to speed on every aspect of what was going on. The negotiation process was simple and there were no surprises. All the negotiation was done with my best interest in mind and part of the deal was a leaseback that would help releive stress in finding a new home. I would recommend the Ardent Team to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the San Diego area

    • SELLERS - READ THIS!: I found The Bottrell Team from an internet search and interviewed them along with many other potential agents to sell my home. What made them stand apart from the others was the technology that they use to market their listings - simply amazing and far and above what anybody else is doing. They also showed me their "Buyers in Waiting" list that at the time numbered over 1200 active buyers. I know that they did some Pre-Marketing of my home before it came on the market and I am glad they did. Within the first 72 hours of going on the market, my home we had a shocking number of showings and we had multiple offers. However, it was one of The Bottrell Teams "Buyers in Waiting" that offered FULL ASKING PRICE for my home. The Bottrell Team proved that they do exactly what they said they would do which was to : 1. Sell my home 2. Sell it for top dollar and 3. Sell it fast. No more having tons of people tracking through my home. I could not be happier.I would highly recommend them to anybody considering selling their home

    • I saw The Bottrell Teams Your Home Sold GUARANTEED, or Ill Buy It offer on one of their listings. Seemed too good to be true. Regardless, I called them to speak about selling my home. When they came they showed me all of their systems - which were very impressive. It was obvious that they were a very experienced team and knew exactly what they were doing. We hired them to sell our home and in very little time they had multiple offers on it and they sold it over asking price. Needless to say, we were both surprised and pleased. The escrow was uneventful (which is a good thing) and we closed on time. Excellent service and communication from beginning to end. They were a great team to work with.

    • When it came for me to end my career in the Marine Corps and move back home there was only one person that I would have sell my home. I called Jim Bottrell from the Bottrell team. I used Jim to help me find and buy my home a couple of years ago and based on that experience, I knew things would go well. First, The Bottrell Team spent a lot of time going over things that would help me sell the house quickly and for top dollar. They had affiliates that they referred to me that were just as professional as the Bottrell Team is and in no time my house was tip-top and ready to sell. Jims marketing and pre-marketing systems were remarkable. Based on my observations about homes selling in the neighborhood, I figured it would take a month or so to sell my home, possibly more because the market was a little slow. However, in short order they had a number of buyers interested in my home and we selected a good buyer who closed on time. Overall, my satisfaction level was 100% and I highly recommend them to anybody looking to buy or sell.

    • We first met Jim and his wife Jessica when they were holding an open house several years ago. We spent some time at the open house and found them to be a very nice couple that definitely had a firm grasp on what they were doing. They helped us buy our first home and then, after we were PCSd out of the area, they used their Property Management division to find good tenants and take care of our home while we were away. Recently, we decided that we would not likely to come back to Southern California and decided to sell our home. One thing that we thought would be difficult is that my wife is on the East Coast and Im stationed in Hawaii - neither of us were within 3000 miles of our home in San Diego. Fortunately, The Bottrell Team has technology that made the process easy despite us being so far away from our home, each other, and the process. The Bottrell Team really demonstrated a superior ability to drive a lot of buyers toward a home - something that Jim had mentioned during his listing presentation and we witnessed first-hand during the first week we had our home for sale. We had multiple offers - two of which were from within Jim's own database of buyers. But it ended up being a buyer that was represented by another agent that ended up offering the most for our home. We ended up selling our home for $10,000 OVER asking price!Jims team took care of everything from final move-out of the tenant, preparing our home for sale, marketing, negotiating, escrow processes, repairs etc etc etc. We know this wasnt an easy transaction given that we had tenants in our home combined with the fact that neither my wife nor I were within 3000 miles at any time - but The Bottrell Team took care of everything for us and we could not be happier.

    • Being from out of state, I came across of some of Jims advertising while doing an internet search for agents to help me sell my sisters home. Jim was the first agent I interviewed and I found everything he had to say very impressive. It was obvious that he really does sell a lot of homes but I wanted to speak to other agents before making a decision. That was interesting to say the least.. After interviewing some other agents, it was obvious why Jim was not all that concerned when I told him that I was going to interview other agents after he and I spoke. He showed me how his team sells homes, their superior statistics, and he even showed me some of their systems they use to sell homes. The other agentsnot very impressive after what I saw from Jims team. Everything was done systematically and efficiently, as you would expect from an ex-Marine. My sisters home needed some renovation prior to sale and Jim had a contractor (also a retired Marine) that efficiently updated the things that needed updating. Once ready, Jims team had the photographers out and they started their marketing process in earnest. We received multiple offers but it was someone from Jims impressive database of buyers (He calls it his Buyers in writing) that ended up offering the most for her home. The escrow process ran smoothly just as Jim said it would if it was one of his buyers and I am extremely pleased with everything that Jim and his team did for us. I highly recommend them.

    • I was referred to The Bottrell Team by a trusted friend after my grandfather (a WWII veteran) passed away and we needed to sell his home. I interviewed several agents and there was one true standout and that was Jim and his team. My grandfathers home needed some work and updating so Jim helped me coordinate that. He spent a lot of time helping me choose what to update and, more importantly, what not to waste money on. Once the home was ready, Jim put it on the market and sold it within days with several offers coming in. We ended up selling for more than asking price! The Buyer that Jim negotiated to the highest amount was represented by a new real estate agent. Jim prepared me for what to expect and told me that he would handle most of the issues and not to worry. I will say that I did worry when the new agent submitted a Request for Repairs asking for nearly $19,000 in work!. I was sure that the issue would get very expensive or we would possibly lose the escrow altogether. I was very concerned. However, true to his word, The Bottrell Team handled everything and my repair bill was under $300 - which took a lot of time and negotiations on Jims part. This could have been a very expensive issue but it was handled in a very professional and experienced manner. After close of escrow we had one more bit of great news. The Bottrell Team is made up of mostly retired United States Marines. They have a program where for every referral that leads to a closed sale, they will donate $500 to Wounded Warrior Homes. A wonderful charity and something that The Bottrell Team takes very seriously given their military background. I was pleased to receive in my mailbox a framed 8x10 picture of Jim presenting a $500 check to Wounded Warrior Homes - in my grandfathers name. Such a great experience!

    • I met Jim several years ago as he was selling the home next to mine. I inquired with him about potentially selling my home so we scheduled an appointment to sit down for a while and discuss it. The impressive part is that Jim is not all about the money. In fact, after hearing what we were thinking about doing HE TOLD US NOT TO SELL OUR HOME!!!! What real estate agent would do that??? A true tribute that he puts the customers needs first.As it turns out, Jim was right. We kept our home for another year or so and gained a tremendous amount of appreciation for doing it. Obviously, when it came time to sell we called the only person we TRUSTED to tell us the complete truth and that was Jim.The Bottrell Team did an excellent job helping us prepare our home for sale - making sure that everything was perfect before going to market. The house looked so good I almost didn't want to sell it! His marketing systems and pool of buyers proved to be exactly what we needed because we had so many realtors rush over to show the house to their clients, and received MULTIPLE OFFERS on our home very quickly. On escrow closing day, my internet was down so Jim and his staff allowed me to set up in their office to electronically sign documents that were needed. Jim negotiated the highest dollar amount and we ended up selling over asking price!I feel I need to say this though - Jim did not disappear after the sale closed. Nearly a year later we had a problem with the person that bought my home, which could have resulted in possibly some expensive litigation. I called Jim for advice and he not only helped, but provided a substantial amount of documentation that demonstrated to the Buyer that I had no liability at all which ended with the Buyers dropping their complaint. I know that Jim did not receive any compensation for this and he really didnt need to help me - but the fact is that HE DID. For that, I am more than happy to tell anybody looking to buy or sell a home that THEY NEED TO CALL JIM!

    • We were referred to The Bottrell Team many years ago when we bought our home. They quickly demonstrated superior negotiation skills when Jim convinced a seller to accept our offer over several others on a very popular home (without even being the highest offer). We enjoyed our home and the occasional call or card from Jim and his staff over the years. When my husband retired from the Marine Corps and it came time to sell our home we knew who we were going to call. Jim and his team came to our home and showed us all of the things that they do to sell their listings quickly and for top dollar. I meanwow!!! Within just a day or two Jim had multiple offers on our home. When he presented them to us it was different than we expected - Jims team had done detailed analysis of each offer, the loan and lender they were using, and even the buyers agent!!! We really didnt expect that but he explained how important it is to not take an offer at face value - you must dig to find out if these buyers are going to close or not. We also found it very touching and nice when Jim dropped by on our moving day to say goodbye to us in person. A very good team to help you buy and sell your biggest investment

    • I was originally referred to The Bottrell Team by a friend that had used them in the past. I was in real trouble because I am a Marine that was stationed well away from my property that I had rented out. The issue was that the renters stopped paying and were destroying my home. The Bottrell Team helped me get them out and then coordinated for all of the repairs that had to be made. Once the property was presentable again, they found good renters and managed my property for me. After about a year, I needed to sell my home. The Bottrell Team made the appropriate coordination with the tenants and marketed my home for sale. They did a remarkable job because there were multiple offers and we sold well OVER ASKING PRICE. Unfortunately, the buyers financing fell out and my home had to go back onto the market. The Bottrell Team once again had my home back on the market and received multiple offers again. We got it back into escrow, again at over asking price. I am very happy with The Bottrell Team and encourage anybody out there to use them. If I ever buy property in San Diego or Riverside County again I will be giving them a call. They cannot be topped.

    • I used The Bottrell Team to sell another home for me in the past so it was a no-brainer when it was time to sell my current home. Jim came over, explained the process to me and went into depth about what we could expect. I was surprised at all of his new systems and it was very obvious to me that he takes his Team very seriously. He had accomplished a lot since had last sold a home for me. This particular home of mine was a little more rural and a little more unique - so it didn't sell immediately. Jim and his team followed up with the agent for every showing and he made adjustments to his marketing accordingly. It was obvious that he had his finger on the pulse and watched in real-time what the market was doing. Soon enough, we had our buyers and entered into escrow. Again, Jim explained in detail the process that we were about to start as we entered that phase of the transaction. There were no surprises and once again, I was happy with Jims team.

    • We were an engaged couple and each owed our own homes. We have known Jim for several years and had sold homes with him in the past. So when it came time to sell our two individual homes and buy a third home for ourselves, there was only one person we needed to talk to. We knew going into this that we were going have an EXTREMELY DIFFICULT transaction because we were what you call Contingent Buyers which means that we needed to sell a home in order to buy the next one - very common issue and very complicated in itself. However, in our case, we needed to sell TWO homes in order to buy a home.and everything had to close on time. Something that could easily turn into a nightmare and something that Jim openly said would be the most difficult string of transactions he had ever done. Jim managed to not only get a seller to accept our offer contingent to the successful sale of two homes, he also negotiated a fantastic deal for us too! Jim was right though - it was extremely difficult. Its complicated enough buying or selling one home at a time but we had THREE transactions running at once. I should also note that Jim was in the middle of opening a new office - complicated.. and we thought it would be a great idea to get married right in the middle of three real estate transactions - as if things were not complicated enough! Regardless, issues that came up were handled seamlessly, questions answered, problems headed off before they really became problems as well as hundreds of other things that happened through the 3 simultaneous transactions. Jim was very good at keeping calm .and keeping me calm too. Sure, steady, and always on point. We highly recommend The Bottrell Team for all of your Real Estate needs

    • When I started looking for an agent to sell my home in Oceanside, I found after some investigation that the Bottrell team was one of the top sellers in my area. I selected three real estate agencies and started interviewing their top selling agents. Jim was the second one I interviewed and in our conversation Jim showed to be genuine, knowledgeable and very much up to date on the market for my specific area. These facts together with his attentive,personable and professional manner of conversation made us decide on the spot not to look any further.Our decision to choose Jim was the best decision we ever made regarding our Oceanside home. With his up to date data base of over 5000 potential buyers, Jim found a buyer immediately and our home was sold on the same day it was listed and closed in record time. This had NEVER happened to us before and was an absolutely perfect for our situation.We recommend Jim Bottrell without reservations to anyone that needs a truthful real estate agent with an exceptional knowledge of the local market.

    • I found The Bottrell Team while looking for agents to sell my home on the internet. Being a Marine myself, I was impressed by the previous testimonials I found about Jims team. I later found out that he has almost all Marines on his team - which I liked so I decided to give them a shot. Before calling Jim, I had moved out of the area and I was renting my home to a friend. As it turns out, that friend didn't take very good care of my home at all. I was pretty upset and wasn't sure what to do. I got to admit I was pretty scared I had lost a ton of value in my home with little to no time to fix it before needing to sell. Jim helped me determine what work needed to be done and what I should not worry about. In fact, he put me in touch with an experienced general contractor who was also a retired Marine. When the work was done, Jims team started their marketing campaign and brought in multiple offers immediately. I was impressed with the research and summary that Jim put into each offer so I could sort all of the details. His team included notes from the lenders as well as full details about the agent presenting each offer. It was a very thorough package for each offer. With in just a few days on the market Jim had negotiated well over my expected price point and in less time then expected his team finalized the whole deal. I was very impressed by the overall professionalism, service, and personalized treatment from the entire process the Bottrell team provided.

    • We were referred to Jim and his team by another Marine. Both my Wife and I are Marines and we were facing a difficult situation with PCS orders and having to sell our home. We met with Jim and his wife and they explained the process that we could expect from marketing to escrow to final closing. We were surprised at the level of detail that they gave us so that there would be no surprises.The process went about as smooth as one could expect given our specific situation and we were very satisfied with the end result. One other thing - since we were referred to The Bottrell Team, they donated $500 to Wounded Warrior Homes in our name!

    • My husband and I were referred to Jim several years ago from a Navy friend of ours. We got along instantly and quickly learned that he was somebody that we could trust and he helped us buy our 1st home. Shortly thereafter, we received unexpected orders to Hawaii so we called Jim. He told us NOT TO SELL our home because the market was about to run up in price. Jims team found some excellent military tenants for us and he managed it over the next couple of years handling whatever needed to be handled. When it came time to sell our home we were concerned because we were still in Hawaii - how could we sell our home without being there? Well, those fears were not needed because The Bottrell Team took care of everything for us from tightening up the home for sale to a couple quick upgrades that would fetch us a multiple of what we spent in a sale. Like many of his other homes he sells, we received multiple offers very quickly. Jim negotiated them well above what I expected to sell my home for and the process went very smoothly. Actually, I dont know if it went smooth or not for Jim, I just know that he didnt bother us with any problems - which made us happy. The money we made from the sale exceeded what we expected to make - we are so glad that he told us not to sell because the difference ended up being a gain of tens of thousands of dollars to us

    • My first true interaction with Jim was when I was in escrow buying a home (with another agent). I found him to be a very nice and informed person so I asked him some questions. What surprise me was how much he helped us - even though he had no part of the sale and there was no financial gain in it for him. Regardless, he HELPED US when things got very difficult and our agent didnt have the answers. In fact, I remember saying to him, you are telling me what is about to happen while the agent that I hired is asking what just happened?' When it came time to buy again we obviously called Jim. He proved to have superior negotiation skill and got us the house of our dreams way under what it was actually worth. An absolutely wonderful experience! A couple of years later, when it came time to sell one of my rental properties I called Jim again. This time was a little different though - he wasnt just Jim anymore, he was 'The Bottrell Team' and he now owned a real estate company. No matter though - he still kept a very personal touch with everything he did for us and his team ran largely in the background taking care of smaller things so he could concentrate on the big picture. I never had to worry about him failing to take care of a pressing issue because he was out putting a lockbox on a home or running paperwork from place to place because his team took care of those issues for him - allowing him to focus on what needed to be done. Our experience with Jim and his team was once again a truly enjoyable experience and I encourage anybody wanting to buy or sell to all him.

    • I was referred to The Bottrell Team by a Marine that I served with in Iraq. However, I elected to go with another agent to list and sell my home because she gave us a discount. That turned out to be a mistake. The other agent had very few showings, never once showed my home to one of her own buyers (because I doubt she had any), and failed on just about every single level. After 100 days of basically nothing but blunders, we ended her contract and hired The Bottrell Team. Instantly things started to happen. A much better listing combined with substantially better marketing led to a LOT of showings. Furthermore, The Bottrell Team kept a constant stream of their own buyers going through my home - probably about half of all showings were from their own database. THEIR DATABASE OF "BUYERS IN WAITING" IS REAL! In fact, it ended up being one of their buyers from their Buyers in Waiting database that ended up buying my home - FOR FULL PRICE! I am so happy that I changed agents and went with The Bottrell Team. They are a fantastic organization!

    • I called Jim to sell my home after receiving some advertising in the mail from him. It was honestly a little unbelievable but I thought Id give him a call anyway. The Bottrell Team offers a guarantee where they say they will buy your home if they cannot sell it. I didnt believe it but Jim told me all about it and provided legal contracts that show that its true. Once I saw what it was they they do to sell homes, the reason that they will buy a home if they cant sell it becomes obvious: Their systems for selling homes are SO MUCH BETTER than any other agent we interviewed that its highly unlikely that they will have to buy any home its going to sell. Once my house was ready for sale it went on the market. After a very reasonable amount of time we had an offer (actually two offers came in that weekend) and we sold our home for a very fair price. We are extremely happy with The Bottrell Team.

    • I found Jims team while doing an internet search for investment properties. My needs were very specific. When I met with Jim and his team it was obvious they knew how to deal with investors. I specifically found it comforting to know that Jim owns investment properties of his own and personally understands everything that concerns an investor (because he is one himself). Once Jim had my criteria, he found a great property that fit my needs perfectly (if I could get it at a discount). This part is interesting: this property SHOULD have sold long before but the listing agent made a mistake in the MLS and it wasnt listed properly. It had been that way for over 100 days and they didnt seem to know the issue. Jim saw an opportunity and notified me immediately. He met me at the property and we walked it to see if what we thought to be true actually was. It was. At the property, I was comforted by the fact that Jim provided me detailed analysis of what my total cash expenditure and Cash on Cash ROI would be on this property. There was no, let me find out and Ill get back with you. HE HAD IT WITH HIM. No details were left to guess. We moved on the property and got it at a substantial discount (again, thanks to the listing agent making a critical mistake). The Bottrell Team created an effortless escrow and were on top of any issues that came up. They even created a lease for tenants for us at no charge. Nice of them. Any investor looking to buy (or in need of property management) should call The Bottrell Team. You cant go wrong.

    • Before we met The Jim Bottrell Team we had already been through two different agents to sell our home. Both experiences were absolutely miserable. Then, when we were absolutely sick and tired of the process, we were referred to Jim and his team. Jim showed up at our home and asked a lot of questions. We were very frustrated so we maybe were not the nicest people at the very beginning, but he appeared to understand why we were grouchy and in many cases he agreed with our sentiments. He showed us how things work with his team and what his system was for selling homes. He showed us exactly how his system automatically prevents some of the things that we endured with the other agents and that made us feel more comfortable. When the listing finally hit the market there was a whirlwind of activity. Constant showings from both Jims agents as well as agents from other companies, open houses, phone calls requesting showings. It was crazy! We are thankful that it didnt last long. In no time at all we had more than one offer on our home. Funny.we were listed with other agents for nearly 6 months and never received one single offer in that time. However, with Jims team, we had 3 offers within the first week. We were amazed. There really is a difference in real estate agents!

    • I first found The Bottrell Team when I was doing in internet search to find out how much my condo was worth because we were interested in selling it and buying a bigger home for our family. We came across a website and did a request for information and were soon called by The Bottrell Team. We sat down with them to discuss both selling my home and buying another one. They did an excellent job selling my home (see my other testimonial about that) and were extremely helpful with helping me buy a new home for my family. Specifically, The Bottrell Team has an inventory of homes for sale as well as an inventory of homes that are coming to market (not on the market yet). People that are in their Buyers in Waiting database get a sneak peak at what is about to hit the market. For us, that meant that we had a head start on the competition for buying our next home. We found one of their upcoming listings and were granted information about it before it hit the market. That helped us tremendously for when it hit the market because we had plenty of opportunity to do research on it ahead of time so the decision was very easy. Everything worked perfectly. Even though The Bottrell Team represented both sides of the transaction we were kept informed about all aspects of the home (even the bad stuff that was found during the inspection). We had an opportunity to ask for repairs, termite clearance, home warranty etc etc and those requests were completed - the same opportunities that anybody else buying the home would have. I feel that both the sale of my home and the purchase of my new home went extremely well and without issues. I would highly recommend The Bottrell Team for anybody looking to buy or sell a home.

    • I was referred to Jim Bottrell two years ago and he helped me buy my home when I was PCSing to Camp Pendleton. I was so pleased with the process that I referred several friends to him over the years - all very impressed with him. So when it came time for my orders to Okinawa, I called him to sell my home. It was a little different now though - in the two years Jims business had grown substantially and he now had a team and his own company. With that comes his team so he was not just an individual agent trying to handle all aspects of a real estate sale. Jim was crucial in helping us decide what things to do before sale and what things not to do. He had points of contact for everything and followed up to ensure everything was done correctly. His marketing skills were evident when we received MULTIPLE OFFERS on our home the first weekend. The Bottrell Team expertly negotiated these buyers up well over asking price which proved to be a nice and unexpected windfall for my family. There were a LOT of moving parts with our escrow considering that we were moving out of the area combined with a buyer that was moving into the state. Neither the Buyer nor the Seller were preset near the end of the transaction but Jims team kept it all together and protected our interests all of the way to the end.

    • When it came time for us to sell and downsize from our home we were referred to The Bottrell Team among others. While we interviewed agents, The Bottrell Team was the only team or agent that had a database of buyers that they showed to me over 4000 at the time. They also showed us their guarantees that if my home didnt sell, they would buy it themselves. The Bottrell Team demonstrated superior market knowledge and marketing ability. They di a substantial amount of pre-marketing as well as a video commercial about my home that they made and distributed to their database which we really liked! When our home hit the market it was a flurry of activity. We had many offers immediately to include three from within their own database. In the end, we sold our home OVER asking price in the first weekend.

    • I found Jim and his team via a mailer that he sent me. I noticed that his message was quite different from the other mailers that I receive almost daily, so I gave him a call. I found his team to be very responsive and we met soon after. I had a rental property to sell, but it was tenant occupied. Jim spent a lot of time with me going over the various options of how to sell a home when it's tenant occupied (not as easy as you might think). Jim gave me the pros and cons of each option in detail, and soon we had a plan. Jim's team proved to be experts at marketing using a lot of innovative methods, many of which I had never seen nor heard of before. Within just a few days, we had a full price offer on my home. The escrow turned out to not be an easy one. There were a couple of issues that I was not aware of about the home, as well as some HOA issues as well. While the process was somewhat stressful, Jim and his team guided me and expertly negotiated through the process. Their advice and recommendations proved to be excellent. What I also appreciated is that they remained helpful AFTER close of escrow. When we first met, Jim told me, Just because escrow has closed and I have been paid, does not mean I stop taking your calls. If you need anything or have any questions, please don't hesitate to call me. That turned out to be true. An issue did arise a couple of months after escrow closed, and Jim and his team were just as helpful and responsive as they were prior and during the escrow process. Jim and his team are competent and professional, and I highly recommend them.

    • I found Jim Bottrell and the Ardent Real Estate team very receptive, responsive and focused once I inquired into their services to sell our Oceanside home. We connected via meetings by phone and live internet sessions. (As we live in Hawaii, to this day, well after his team sold my home, we have actually never met face to face). I will say that his technology for handling such distant transactions is remarkable. According to him, given his large military clientele, he had to find technology that allowed him to remotely work with Buyers and Sellers. He certainly accomplished that task well. Our home had been a rental property for years and was tenant occupied when we made the decision to sell. Jim spent a lot of time with us going over the various options of how to sell a home while it was tenant occupied (not as easy as you might think). Jim gave me the pros and cons of each option in detail and soon enough we had a plan. And, the Ardent Team brought it to fruition. Jim's team proved to be experts at marketing using a lot of innovative methods, many of which I had never seen before nor heard of. Within just a few days, we had a full price offer on my home. The escrow turned out to be a fairly easy one. Very few issues came up and Jims team always had a solution when something came up. While the process of selling a home is always somewhat stressful, Jim and his team guided us and expertly negotiated on our behalf throughout the process. Their advice and recommendations proved to be right on target. They are a great team to work with. Goal and mission oriented. We really enjoyed working with them. But then again, I would have expected nothing less from a US Marine.

    • Many Years ago we met Jim and his wife in an open house. My wife and I had been looking for a home for some time and had been through a couple of agents prior to meeting Jim. I can say that Jim really stood head and shoulders above the other agents. Although, I would expect nothing less from a former Marine. Jim negotiated us into a wonderful house at a fantastic deal on the home and we used our VA benefits to buy the home with no money down. We were extremely happy with the process. A couple of years later, we received orders and had to move across the country. We notified Jim and discussed the options of whether to make our home a rental property or sell it immediately. Interestingly enough, Jim said DONT SELL!. He then explained a few financial options to us which helped us decide to make our home a rental property for a year before selling. Jims team has a property management division so he took care of that for us too. They found great renters for us and took care of any problems that occurred while the renters lived in our home. A couple of months ago we decided that we wanted to buy a home on the East Coast which meant that we needed to sell our home in San Diego first (for the down payment). Obviously we called Jim. He immediately worked out a plan with the tenant and over him into another property that his team manages. Jims team are experts at marketing and the fist weekend we had multiple offers to buy our home. Through some really innovative negotiating techniques, Jim managed to get a buyer represented by another agent to pay $45,000 OVER asking price! We could not believe it. However, 30 days later, we received a check from escrow well in excess of 6 figures!!!! Further, it was all TAX FREE. We absolutely could not believe what Jims team pulled off for us and we are extremely happy! The story does not end there though. Since we had all of this money, we had extra after buying our new home. A couple of months after we closed escrow with Him, we called him about buying an investment property in Florida in order to get some advice. He was happy to help us and took nearly 2 hours walking us through big picture finance and the velocity of money - which was a term that we had never heard of before. Needless to say, after our 2 hour conversation we were extremely knowledgeable about the process and exactly how we should position our money to achieve maximum return on our money. Working with Jim and his team has been a fantastic experience before, during, and after our real estate transactions. Highly recommend!!!

    • We were referred to Jims team to help us sell our home in San Elijo Hills. While we did speak with a couple of other realtors, there was really no need to spend much time thinking about it once we spent some time with him - we knew he would be the best to sell our home. The Bottrell Team did everything that we expected them to do. However, what stood out was Jims negotiating skills. At one point we thought our deal was dead but Jim repeatedly said not to worry, he had it under control, and he told us what we needed to do. It was surprising how he was able to predict what the other side was going to do and have a plan all ready to go when they inevitably did what we expected. It was uncanny. Overall, great team to work with. They sold our house for exactly what they said they would and very quickly. Jims team had support people that we could count on when they were needed so the transaction went very smooth. Great team to work with.

    • My wife and I decided to retire and move to Texas and into our dream home. We interviewed several agents but there was only one that really stood out. We did not agree to have The Bottrell Team sell our home initially as we promised ourselves that we would hear each agent before we made our decision. What we learned from that process was that we were wasting our time interviewing other agents. We hired The Bottrell Team and they immediately had an action plan for us to ensure that we got top dollar for our home. We followed their instructions and their plan went extremely well. Their pre-marketing was superb and once we hit the market, we had multiple offers. The Bottrell Team had soon negotiated our selling price well over asking price and we were happy. However, about 20 days into the transaction we were alerted by The Bottrell Team that the Buyers were refusing to remove their contingencies. This is obviously a concern. Upon investigation, it was determined that the buyers lender was in fact not able to provide financing for his buyers despite multiple assurances early on that he would be able to. Jims team did everything possible to burn the candle at both ends - by that I mean that they attempted to help the existing buyer obtain financing while, at the same time, soliciting new offers in the event that the buyer would be unable to obtain financing. Unfortunately, the buyers financing fell through and that escrow ended up being cancelled. The good news is that The Bottrell Team immediately had another offer (at the same over-asking price amount) and we were back in escrow. This escrow went much smoother but still had issues when the buyers appraisal came in $10,000 short (we had sold the home for more than it was worth I guess there are worse problems to have). Once again, the Bottrell Team worked hard and eventually convinced the Buyers agent to move forward at the contract price (above appraisal) and we closed escrow a short time later. Overall, it was a difficult process as many home sales are. Im very happy that I had an entire team of seasoned professionals working for me that made the process as smooth and profitable as it could have possibly been.

    • I found Jim Bottrell and Ardent Realty while reviewing Zillow and other sites for realtors to sell my house. After reading several reviews and comparing the realtors' activity levels, I narrowed the search to Jim Bottrell's team and one other realty team. Both have similar techniques for selling, but I found that Jim's personal approach matched my personality better. Early on, he was willing to spend a great deal of time explaining the business of selling a home - marketing, negotiating, closing, etc - so that I would understand it. He provided tangible examples of how his team operates and helped me understand how he would market my house. My house was a rental property and had been for several years. I was living in Virginia when we decided it was time to sell the home. His use of digital communications made the selling and listing process easy for me. His use of digital media to market the house was unsurpassed. He also helped me to navigate the potentially difficult waters of removing tenants reluctant to leave and ensuring the property was ready to sell. Once on the market, the home had several offers on the weekend that it was listed. Within a week, we had an exceptional contract that closed without issue. I've worked with realtors in the past and this experience was immeasurably better than anything I had previously. If you're planning to sell a property in Southern California, I enthusiastically recommend working with Jim Bottrell's team.

    • We initially found The Bottrell Team while looking at homes on Zillow. We inquired on a home listed and shockingly they responded. I say shockingly because its amazing how many agents never respond to inquiries. But his team did and they did very quickly. When I was speaking with them, I let them know that I am being relocated and would need to sell my house. The only issue was that we didnt know exactly when we were getting relocated so that made things a little more difficult. Initially, one of Jims team members came to my house then later on Jim came and we discussed pricing, timing, and things that needed to be prepared prior to sale. Jim proved to be a wealth of information and helped us avoid some pitfalls that we might have stepped into. The pre-marketing campaign went as planned. It generated TONS of interest in our home. When the dust settled, we ended up selling to a buyer in Jims own database of buyers and the terms were negotiated with both price and timing that fit our needs perfectly. The team was very communicative and constantly pushed information our way. You can see that it truly is a team effort with them. The Bottrell Team was great to work with and we highly recommend them for anybody looking to sell a home.

    • If we could give 6 Stars we would! They knocked it out of the park! We originally found The Bottrell Team in a local newspaper. Being a military family, we liked all of the charity work they do with disabled veterans so we decided to call them to interview them amongst other realtors to help us sell our home pending military orders out of the area. Jim and an assistant came to our home to talk to us about what it would take to sell our home as well as establish a timeline that would work for our orders out of the area. This part was difficult because we didnt want to sell the house too fast and be homeless nor did we want to pay for a vacant home after we moved. Timing was critical. The good news is that Jims team planned everything out as if it was a military operation. It did not appear that much was left to chance. Once everything was ready with our house, The Bottrell Team started their pre-marketing campaign. We very quickly realized that we were going to get a lot of activity on our home. Both the pre-marketing and Active marketing campaigns were impressive and we were well informed all along the way. The first weekend on the market our home was a whirlwind of activity. Tons of showings to include buyers from their own database. We received many offers on our home and Jims team negotiated so that we got absolute top dollar for our home. We sold our home $26,000 OVER asking price in just 5 days. Truly incredible! We highly recommend The Bottrell Team for anybody looking to buy or sell especially Military!

    • I was referred to Jim Bottrell by a good friend of mine that had two excellent experiences with Jim and his team. To complicate things, I work outside of the country and we reside on the other side of the world. Many things were difficult including time zone differences, and the fact that my husband and I have not seen the property for a while. It has been a rental property for some time so determining value was another challenge. To make things worse, the home was not turned over in what we would deem as adequate condition by the outgoing property management company. We were also informed by the property management company that there had been a death on the property. Things were getting worse quickly. Jim and his team stepped in and took care of the repairs that needed to be completed before the home could go to market. They took care of everything for us while we were on the other side of the planet. Despite the time zone differences and remote engagement, we were always informed and kept in the loop throughout the process. When they called and emailed with updates, they always gave options and recommendations and made the whole process really easy. Jims team handled everything and expertly marketed our home. We navigated the sale process with few difficulties and closed escrow within expected timelines. We enjoyed working with the Bottrell Team and would highly recommend them to anybody
