More about Jim Tierney

Jim is the founder and co-owner of NetEquity Real Estate. NetEquity Real Estate is the premier full service independent real estate brokerage on the San Francisco Peninsula. According to a recent report from Inman News, one of the leading real estate industry news websites," independent brokers are more prevalent now than they have been in the last decade. Independent firms do business without the fees, rules, and bureaucracy of a franchisor. Local control of branding and technology makes independent companies nimble." At NetEquity Real Estate we like to think we're ahead of the curve because we were independent before it was trendy. Our business model is unique because we provide strategic marketing, superior service, and low commission. A few provide the first two but no large national franchise or independent brokerage provide all three.

        Jim was a pleasure to work with. Professional and responsive to our needs. He kept us informed throughout the sales process and everything went smoothly. I would use him again for a home sale or purchase.

      • Jim Tierney is a rare find. He is very knowledgeable about real estate, listens well, and is always accessible. He made the process for buying our home (and later selling it) very easy for us. I highly recommend Jim to anyone buying or selling real estate!

        - Sean Noonan
      • Jim Tierney handled all aspect of selling our house -- from listing, inspections, small fixes/painting, landscaping, open house -- to entertaining offers and finally arranging closing. The overall process went smoothly; Jim was professional and honest throughout the process.

        - Premal Patel
      • Jim Tierney is an honest, informative and outstanding person. He could not have done more to get our house on the market and sold. It took two weeks total, sold with six strong offers in six days. We could not be more pleased. Thank you,Jim Tierney!

        - Roy and Heather Liautaud
      • We were in the process of selling another property at the same time as the one that Jim handled. The difference was night and day - NetEquity was an excellent experience and went along without any difficulties at all. What an easy way to conduct business - we would highly recommend NetEquity Real Estate - and especially Jim Tierney. Professional, honest and experienced

        - Kevin and Berlie
      • Jim Tierney was excellent in all aspects of sale from home prep to open house to presentation of offers allowing for maximum sale price in the shortest time on the market. His pricing ability and recommendation brought in multiple offers over asking price.

        - Chad Reade
      • Met Jim about 10 years ago because I had a townhouse for sale on Woodside Road that wasn't selling... I couldn't explain it... the townhouse down the street with the Jim Tierney sign on it went sale pending right away, when I looked online, those people had decorated it so well... it was no wonder.When I called Jim for some advice as to why mine wasn't moving he gave me a plan which included staging/marketing/ and several several multiple offers Jim sold it.As did the other condo that I was living in at the time.The challenge was then to find us a home with enough land to build an inlaw unit.. no one could find it. Jim went out on a Tuesday and called us Tuesday night to see if we could see this house...which of course we placed an offer on an obtained immediately.

      • We had been looking for a home in San Francisco for almost 3 years from 3000 miles away in Connecticut. Jim helped us learn the area, understand the advantages of each sub-region of the city and ultimately settle on Noe Valley as our target.He educated us on the market dynamics here which were significantly different than in the NorthEast. He helped us to make a compelling pre-emotive offer that allowed us to get the home we wanted without paying more than we had to. To get the deal closed required an extremely fast loan approval and Jim helped assure it all went smoothly by working closely with the inspectors, appraisers, escrow officer, etc.Since we literally only saw the property one time, we relied upon Jim to handle inspections, evaluate the property, answer many detailed questions, and more - and he was always very helpful, patient, and generous with his time.He has a great network of support services (contractors, electricians, inspectors, etc) who were invaluable in addressing work that was needed in a very timely and cost effective way.I honestly believe that we could not have successfully closed this long distance transaction without Jim as our agent.

      • We were first time home buyers and while we had a few criteria we didn't have the knowledge and confidence to be able to adequately evaluate a property. Among the agents we interacted with, Jim proved to be exceptional. He was informed, he had experience, he took the time to understand our needs and when we needed an opinion he would guide us through with clear pros and cons. We saw him as someone who was on our side, who educated us about real estate market and helped us make the best decision for our family. In comparison most other agents that we had seen before were happy to sell us anything, take their commission and move forward. Jim showed a lot of patience through a long search process as we changed our minds many times about where we wanted to buy and what kind of place. He is committed to his work, is always available, responsive and works with integrity putting the client's interests above all

      • Jim was excellent. His marketing strategy maximized the value of my home. He followed through on everything he said he would. He also went the extra mile on everything he did, including installing smoke detectors for at no cost. I was an out of town seller and he made the transaction very easy for me. I can't say enough, I had an awesome experience.
