  • Jim listed and sold my home

      JUST LIKE THAT, Jim Holbrook and his team of professionals made their introduction, and everyone involved knew they were in charge!!! Selecting the perfect Realtor isn’t easy, but we were very blessed to have been given the opportunity to work with them! Jim listened to every single concern of ours and stayed focus and determined to helping us with the eagerness to explain everything in detail which is what my wife and I love and appreciate! He walked us through this entire process patiently and professionally! His marketing strategy is BRILLIANT! JUST BRILLIANT! We went into escrow shortly after our first open house and once we got into escrow he sprung into power action and found us our next dream home! Cut to, here we are!!! We closed both our homes concurrently and we couldn’t be happier!!! It’s important to note that Jim Holbrook is incredibly protective with his clients and we felt that!!! He really, really cares! If you are ever fortunate enough to work with Jim Holbrook and his team to buy or sale a home, count your blessings, you have come to the right place! Don’t hesitate to call him!

    • Jim listed and sold my home

        Jim sold me a property in Escondido and another in San Marcos. Easy to work with. Excellent communication and work ethic. During the whole escrow process, Jim and his transaction coordinator were professional and thorough. I highly recommend.

      • Jim helped me buy a home

          Jim Holbrook helped us find and purchase our first home back in 2008. He made the process easy. He talked us through every step. No question went unanswered, no matter how silly it may have been. He reassured when in doubt, ask. So it was only obvious for us to call on Jim and his team when we were ready to sell. We decided to take a huge leap and sell both our home and my in-laws and move out of state to Montana. Jim walked us through the timing to make sure we were in line with the purchase of our new home. He made sure we new just how to stage and market our home. We sold in three weeks. A month later he put our in-laws home on the market. Everything went smooth. Jim and his team not only helped us sell our homes they walked us through the purchase of our new home. Jim even went as far as to call the local mortgage company here in Montana to help us clarify some of the paperwork. Jim and his team made us feel confident every step of the way

        • Jim helped me buy a home

            Jim and his team are top-notch. He helped us find our dream home quickly and negotiated several terms in our favor. The whole buying process was very smooth with Jim giving us detailed updates along the way. I appreciate his honest, no-pressure approach! I would definitely recommend him to anyone buying or selling. We went full circle with Jim... he helped us sell our home 3 years ago, and get into a wonderful property this month. Thanks again, Jim!

          • Jim helped me buy a home

              My wife and I came in to the housing market with zero experience. Jim was highly recommended by a fellow Marine and we could have not gotten any luckier. He walked us through every step of the process and explained everything in a way we could understand. He is very professional and even more personable. We lived over an hour away and he accommodated us every time to look at houses late at night. In the end he helped us buy the perfect home for our family and made it absolutely painless. Thank you Jim and Kelli for everything you did for us. I will recommend you to everyone I see looking for a new house!!!

            • Jim listed and sold my home

                To Mr. Jim Holbrook, Where do I begin. I had a gut feeling about you and wow was I ever right! So many realtors wanted to list my mom's home. Thank God we chose you! From the very beginning you were honest with us about my 85 year old mom's home that she had owned for almost 30 years. She trusted a property management company to rent it and to take care of for her, her precious home. They did not. That was a nightmare in itself. They took advantage of my elderly mother and let tenants destroy her house. I took over her home March 2015. I had a sister that was handling it for about 4 years. She seemed oblivious to the goings on with just about everything, trusting the property management company. Luckily I had been a property manager a few years earlier. I had to have the tenants evicted. They had also filed an injury lawsuit against my mom. The topper about this house was that the tenants that rented prior to the one's I evicted, a husband and wife, the husband shot and killed his wife and then killed himself in my mom's home. With this happening, it was going to be even harder to sell the home. I also started finding out that my stepfather who passed in 2011, did not upkeep the house. It was basically, falling apart. This was the beginning of finding out about so many problems with the house. I told you all about the above and you patiently listened and you still took on the challenge to be our realtor. Other's wanted to list the home for us, but again, my gut said to go with you :) So many little things turned into big things. I believe that's when we first spoke to each other, around this time, March or April of 2015. I had told you about my mom and the great deal of stress she was under. She had also been very sick and almost died. She needed to sell this house. You went far and beyond the call of duty! Hiring vendors, getting reports, and so much more! This home had more problems then I would have been able to take care of by myself. And again, thank you for your patience. We will forever be grateful for everything that you have done for both of us. I highly recommend Mr. Jim Holbrook, the most honest realtor in S. CA! I cannot say enough wonderful things about this man. Julie/Daughter of the home owner Note: My mom passed away on March 10, 2016 :(

              • Jim listed and sold my home

                  Megan and I would like to give a HUGE THANK YOU to Jim Holbrook and Kelli Holbrook for helping us sell and buy a new house. Jim got us top dollar for our house and Kelli made the loan process as smooth as it could be. I know it's a tough process to sell and buy a house at the same time but Jim and Kelli made the journey as smooth as possible. We were able to sell and buy all within 30 days! If anyone is looking to buy or sell in the area, you won't find a better duo to help you! Thank you so much we couldn't be happier! *Matt & Megan Fitts

                • Jim listed and sold my home

                    Almost a decade ago my wife and I were in a position where we needed to find the right home for our family, but we were in a crunch for time. Jim took our needs seriously and made every effort to find just the right home for us. We found a beautiful home and 8 years later we reached out to Jim again because we had a unique refinance situation and again Jim made every effort, this time including his wife Kelli with Miller Financial Inc, who worked overtime to help us negotiate what could have been a horribly complicated pile of paperwork. Because of Jim and Kelli we have the home we needed, we were able to make it financially advantageous, and now we are poised to purchase our next home, and once again Jim and Kelli are making sure that at every step our specific needs are being met. I will not buy a home with anyone else; it is such a luxury to have people with their experience and market knowledge on our side. Couple that with the fact that they take a personal interest in our needs and that they make our family a priority, and their services are absolutely invaluable. Edit - Since I wrote the first review we actually sold our home and purchased our "dream" home using Jim and Kelli. It is a very intricate and involved process to sell, find, and purchase two homes and ensure that escrows line up, funds transfer, and all procedures are followed. Once again Jim and Kelli demonstrated how they have such a consummate understanding of all aspects of real estate. They are so personal, so careful, and so adept at guiding you through every step. We could not have done it without them, and I will recommend their services to everyone I ever meet that needs to buy/sell a home. You simply cannot be in better hands. Jim and Kelli will quickly be much more than your brokers, they will be your friends!

                      • Highly likely to recommend05/22/2019We initially contacted Jim a while back with the possibility of listing the house for sale. We had some hiccups in the process of getting the house ready for listing but Jim stuck with us and worked with us along the way...which is much appreciated. Once listed, house was sold in less than 3 weeks...from listing to close if escrow. Would highly recommend Jim and his team to anyone looking for someone to help with their real estate needs.

He knows the area and market impact and its all about the right timing. And how the home is shown and listed his team absolutely knows their position to getting the home sold.We believe the right ability and right sales people get the job doneHe is very clever to setting up a open house event to have many people gather to view and talk about the home with others viewing it too. And guess what they all get to talking and next every ones wondering if they should get an offer in right away before the others. He schedules and open house with 1- 3 hours with all the people meeting.This is a clever way to get people talking and others listening in getting ways to know if they like the home they will get and offer or start a contract ASAP ! Jim thanks for being our agent. Great job to you and your fantastic team who worked in selling our home

                      • Jim was extremely helpful in all aspects of the sell of the house. He knew what we wanted and worked with the buyer to get it.

We were very pleased with the entire process and felt he really looked out for us in finding the correct house to meet our requirements! The experience was fun as well as we made several trips and enjoyed viewing homes with him and his wife, Kelly! Felt like we made friends as well as we are new to area!

                      • Jim sold my home in one day. If you are considering him to sell your home, consider this. Jim is a Broker and owner. Thats a lot at stake; you cannot get a higher degree of knowledge or experience. Jim meets with you in person and is personable. He wants (and this is important) to help you. This is obvious, but after having 4 other agents (an agent works for the broker) walk through the home and just go uhh huh..looks good Jim cared enough to point out the tiny details. Some would/could be offended, but that is his job. Most did not care enough to say anything knowing it would sell and be asked to be fixed at inspection time. Doing it ahead of time strengthens your selling position and avoids it in the first place. The deciding factor for me is he is a self-made man who is at the top of his field. He just happens to be a humble, personable and a pleasure to work with. Lastly, when he was competing for the job he offered the lowest cost to sell. He can (and does) beat the competition so make sure you if you are thinking of another service based on price, ask Jim. Jim did not ask me to write this, Im in the Information Technology field and help companies with their IT systems every day. It is a thankless job and Im always trying to help those who exceed my expectations and dont even know it. Im genuinely grateful for Jim.

I had a gut feeling about you and wow was I ever right! So many realtors wanted to list my mom's home. Thank God we chose you! From the very beginning you were honest with us about my 85 year old mom's home that she had owned for almost 30 years. She trusted a property management company to rent it and to take care of for her, her precious home. They did not. That was a nightmare in itself. They took advantage of my elderly mother and let tenants destroy her house. I took over her home March 2015. I had a sister that was handling it for about 4 years. She seemed oblivious to the goings on with just about everything, trusting the property management company. Luckily I had been a property manager a few years earlier. I had to have the tenants evicted. They had also filed an injury lawsuit against my mom. The topper about this house was that the tenants that rented prior to the one's I evicted, a husband and wife, the husband shot and killed his wife and then killed himself in my mom's home. With this happening, it was going to be even harder to sell the home. I also started finding out that my stepfather who passed in 2011, did not upkeep the house. It was basically, falling apart. This was the beginning of finding out about so many problems with the house. I told you all

                      • Highly likely to recommend04/20/2016 - CristianMileyBought and sold a Single Family home in 2016 in Sun City, Menifee, CA.Local knowledge: 5 StarsProcess expertise: 5 StarsResponsiveness: 5 StarsNegotiation skills: 5 StarsAlmost a decade ago my wife and I were in a position where we needed to find the right home for our family, but we were in a crunch for time. Jim took our needs seriously and made every effort to find just the right home for us. We found a beautiful home and 8 years later we reached out to Jim again because we had a unique refinance situation and again Jim made every effort, this time including his wife Kelli with Miller Financial Inc, who worked overtime to help us negotiate what could have been a horribly complicated pile of paperwork. Because of Jim and Kelli we have the home we needed, we were able to make it financially advantageous, and now we are poised to purchase our next home, and once again Jim and Kelli are making sure that at every step our specific needs are being met. I will not buy a home with anyone else; it is such a luxury to have people with their experience and market knowledge on our side. Couple that with the fact that they take a personal interest in our needs and that they make our family a priority, and their services are absolutely invaluable. Edit - Since I wrote the first review we actually sold our home and purchased our "dream" home using Jim and Kelli. It is a very intricate and involved process to sell, find, and purchase two homes and ensure that escrows line up, funds transfer, and all procedures are followed. Once again Jim and Kelli demonstrated how they have such a consummate understanding of all aspects of real estate. They are so personal, so careful, and so adept at guiding you through every step. We could not have done it without them, and I will recommend their services to everyone I ever meet that needs to buy/sell a home. You simply cannot be in better hands. Jim and Kelli will quickly be much more than your brokers, they will be your friends!

It was my home for more than 17 years and as a result there were many emotional attachments involved. Jim is powerful forward thinking broker who had the personal ability of talking me off the proverbial cliff on more than one occasion during complications in the sales process, such as setbacks or delays with the buyers. I was literally taught how to make my home more marketable with only a few inexpensive cosmetic changes that resulted in a better sales price. I learned more about Real Estate than I ever anticipated. Not only did Jim become my personal mentor and counselor during the sales process, he and his wife, Kelli has proven to be a good friend to me and my family. I will certainly use their service again and enthusiastically refer them to anyone I know that is in the market to buy or sale. *John & Chandra Warfield

I was initially selling the home without a realtor. I was introduced to Jim after more than a month of little or no progress in marketing and selling the home.

Jim provided guidance and sage advice throughout the entire process. I would recommend Jim and his team to all serious sellers.

Why I feel this way? I felt I was added as a family member, not a client. So go no further, if you are looking for an honest real-estate agent, who is looking out for your best interest and his gains come as a byproduct of great service? Select Performance Realty Group-Jim Holbrook, if you are looking for a sincere, trustworthy, dependable, professional, reachable, and knowledgeable of current housing market. I was initially selling my home without a realtor, after listening to my goals, Jim and his team brief me, with no pressure to sign, in fact he gave me some pointers just in case I did not sign with him; but he said you are leaving a lot of money on the table. "If I can get you 70,000 will you allow me to your agent? He was confident that my home would sale immediately; so I only signed a 30 day agreement. Lets say he over achieved, he help me fix one concern, and then his outstanding photographer took photos that allowed the viewer to live in each room and sale my home; (almost made me stay). My house listed on Thursday with only 1, yes 1 open house on Saturday, full listing price offer on Sunday exceeding the 74,000 net gains vowed; the icing on the cake was 30days escrow!!!

Well we did! That just goes to show you the trust that we have in Jim. From our first conversation with Jim he shared with us his knowledge and was quick to set us up with a list of houses that fit what we were interested in. Within a week we found a house that we liked, put in an offer and had it accepted. Since we were not able to be present of any of the inspections Jim made sure to be there for us and kept us well informed on everything that was going on. Jim and his team made the buying process so seamless and even helped with getting us the best possible loan for our family. I would highly recommend Jim for all your home needs. You will not be disappointed and with just one phone conversation with Jim you will see that he truly cares for his clients.

He by far stood out above his peers in many critical categories for selling real estate. We met and Jim outlined his overall strategic plan as it applied to my property and we agreed on a plan. He then exceeded my expectations as to the professionalism and execution with the sale of my property. Ultimately in a very short period I received multiple offers in excess of the list price and once the sale was completed my property was sold for an amount exceeding the appraisal . Thus if you want a true Real Estate Professional to represent you which will maximize your goalI strongly recommend Jim and his teamthey are first classand execute with the utmost integrity.
