  • Jim helped me buy a home

      We had many options when partnering with a Real Estate Agent and couldn't be any happier that we chose Jim. We had a very specific list of "must haves" when looking for our new Walnut Creek home and Jim took the time to make sure that we were satisfied throughout the entire process. He's very easy to work with, super knowledgeable of the area, and a really nice guy. At the beginning, he helped narrow our search with custom-tailored listings and didn't begrudge showing us a ton of homes that we wanted to see. The process can be a little daunting and frustrating, but he had a great attitude and assured us that he'd show us as many homes as it took to find "our home." We started looking in late March and closed escrow yesterday (just 2 months later) on a beautiful new home in The Woodlands. We got into a multiple offer situation and his experience was vital to our "winning" the home. In today's competitive market, your Agent can really make the difference, and Jim did just that. When it comes time for us to move again in the future, we look forward to working with Jim again.

    • Jim listed and sold my home

        Jim was a great asset and helped us close the deal very quickly

      • He worked with us on a 1031 exchange I highly recommend him. He has years of experience, is thorough, knowledgeable, professional, very responsive, stays on top of the other participants in the transaction, and makes sure there are comprehensive inspections of property you are considering buying. We would absolutely work with Jim again.

      • Jim worked closely with us every step of the way in selling our condo in Walnut Creek, CA. He recommended an excellent painter as well as a cleaning service to help us get the place ready to sell. He also had the place staged for us which made a huge difference. We had an excellent offer in less than a week and closed escrow within 30 days. Jim is top notch agent who goes out of his way to accommodate his clients!
