What James' clients have to say...

If we could give James a 10 star rating we absolutely would! There were many complicated factors involved in our home buying process as we had just had our second child and were looking to relocate from SF to LA in 2021. James was patient throughout our entire journey finding the perfect home for our family. We knew exactly what we wanted and although it took a year to find, James was with us every step of the way. He was punctual, responsive, proactive and trustworthy. James was transparent and honest with us when he felt a home wasn't the right one for us never pushing us into a deal that wasn't right. He advised us to take our time to find "the one" and when we did, James was just as excited about our home as we were. Now let's get into the actual deal. James is a pro. In December 2021, at the height of a very competitive market he helped us make an offer that the seller couldn't refuse. On Saturday - we saw the house for the first time at open house. Sunday - James coordinated a private showing for us with the agent to get a second look. Monday morning at 9am we submitted our offer and by 10:45am the same day our offer had been accepted. The seller didn't even counter offer. Not only that, we were able to close escrow within 21 days with James guiding us through the process every step of the way. Thanks to James we had access to the best resources during inspection and closing. James is our realtor and friend for life. Thanks James!

Nothing but good thoughts come to mind when writing a review for James. We’re grateful for his good heart and his steady temperament through turbulent waters. We couldn’t have landed where we did without James and it taught us a lesson in surrounding ourselves with the real ones who truly care over the fake ones who just do their jobs.

Trey Ho
This review is long overdue, partly because I am an expert procrastinator but also because I couldn’t find the right words to really reflect what a great experience I had with James. I reached out to James over 2 years ago as I was starting my search for a home after renting for almost 10 years in Los Angeles. From the very beginning, James was so patient and informative with me (a complete beginner to the world of real estate, and a slow learner when it comes to real estate and financing lingo), and I was so relieved to discover that this attribute of James lasted through the entire two long years it took for me to finally find a house I loved and go through the entire contract process. Somehow James knew exactly what I was looking for and was so honest and realistic in guiding me through which houses I should seriously consider, and which ones I should forgo. Never did I ever feel pressured or hastened in my search, and once I did reach a decision and entered escrow, James guided me through every step. 4 months into living in our new home, we love it more each day and we have James to thank for that. Thank you, James, for making our first home-buying experience such a special one!
Elaine Choi
James is excellent to work with! Throughout the process he was looking out for our best interest. He spent a lot of time gathering a sense of what we wanted in a home. Each home we saw, he broke down the pros/cons from a realtors perspective. He gave insight on other important things (potential scope of projects we wanted to do, things that would impact resale value, etc). Initially we loved one home, and inspections revealed numerous major systems problems. As first time home buyers, James was very patient and gave good insights. Ultimately we passed- and we are so grateful for his advice, as it helped us avoid a disaster home situation. Last, but not least, he’s great company, which is a bonus because James, my husband and I spent a lot of weekends together... Once we found our home, he helped make the escrow process as low stress as possible , and was available and reliable... A testament to how good he is- in this crazy market- he helped us buy a home we love for a price we are very happy with, in less than 3 months… Overall James is trustworthy, knowledgeable, and reliable. All very important qualities in the person helping guide one of the biggest financial decisions you make in your life.

Working with James for the sale of our condo was easy and straightforward. As a result of the pandemic, DTLA has been a buyer’s market. We were hesitant at first to list our place, but with a baby on the way, we needed to move quick. James always came prepared with his market research, and directed us every step of the way. What set our place apart from the other units was the help from his team of experts. The interior designer and photographer really showcased our place from a buyer’s point of view. My husband and I felt very fortunate to not only have received one offer, but two offers, after the open house. I enjoyed working with James, and couldn’t recommend him highly enough!
ChristinaPark38
I had a rental property in DTLA that needed work after the tenant vacated. James stepped up for the job and went above and beyond to help get the place ready. He reached out and vetted various repairmen, stagers, and cleaners. The place looked amazing once all the work was completed. Once it hit the market, we had lots of showing and received multiples offers. Thanks to James it took 10 days to get the home in escrow when the average days on market is around 60 to 90 days in DTLA. Our unit was the only unit that sold in the past 4 months in the building while 4 other units are still trying to sell and doing price reductions. James understood how to position the listing to sell and his unique marketing strategy and negotiation skills are what really got the job done. Hire James and he will get the job done, and of course the best results!

We had the pleasure of working with James for the sale of our home. We were unsure if we were going to move and went back and forth at the beginning. James was patient with us during this decision making process. We moved during the home selling and James kept us fully informed and updated. He gave us sound advice and understood the market very well. He is very responsive and answers all questions. He will do everything to make sure your property is ready to sell and get the most possible for your home. We highly recommend James!
maryspeech7
We couldn't have had a more seamless experience buying our home with James. He patiently answered all of our questions and was amazingly responsive from start to finish of the entire home searching and buying process. We appreciated his genuine desire to help us find our dream home and would highly recommend him to others!

This review is long overdue. James was our realtor for the sale of our home. My wife and I were expecting our second child, so Covid created some obvious health safety concerns that made timing and logistics tricky through the entire process. We had already worked with James a couple years before when we purchased the property so we trusted him to take care of us. Despite our established relationship, James took nothing for granted and came prepared with thorough market research and an entire playbook. He took the time to walk us through various options, his rationale, and ultimately drove us towards a target strategy that considered all of our unique objectives. Whereas setting strategy is the fun part of the job, execution is where James really differentiated himself with this sale. Through James's stewardship, our home was beautifully staged and marketed. My family and I were displaced for only a couple of targeted and carefully planned windows and we had overflowing interested and multiple competitive offers. And so, when we accepted an offer we were ready to celebrate. However, as with any major transaction, there will always be unknown unknowns. With our sale, we had some hurdles to overcome to close the deal and this is where James was truly special. He moved beyond acting just as our agent and acted like an owner. While my family and I adjusted to becoming a family of 4, James handled every twist and turn with grit and professionalism. James consulted us, kept us informed, and protected us where necessary. James willed the sale of our home over the line and we are so grateful. If you are looking for more than just an agent and want to be prepared for that 1% scenario, give James a call.
Peter Thiraphoj
James was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and responsive! Even though I am not based in the area and was not able to view properties with him, he walked me through the property by posting videos with his commentary, which helped me find the right property to purchase.

I have to start off immediately by saying how amazing James was. My fiancé and I were first time home buyers, and we really didn’t know what to expect when we started looking for a house. We didn’t even intend for James to be our realtor as we were just exploring our options without intending to get very serious about home shopping, but he was so welcoming, knowledgeable, and great to work with that we couldn’t imagine working with anyone else! As first-time buyers, James made the entire process feel easy. He was able to guide us through every step of the process while offering his advice all along the way. His explanations on what steps we had to take and why were so clear. He was never forceful like that horrible car salesman trope. James listened to us, and it was very clear that he was going to be very patient and only settle for our perfect house. Very quickly he was able to discern what we liked and did not like even when we weren’t always able to articulate that. With his calm demeanor, James was such a pleasure to work with. He was always available for us to answer questions or book viewings. He worked around our schedule, and I feel like we drove him all around LA looking at neighborhoods in all corners. He was always there at the next house waiting for us no matter what day of the week or what time. In fact, I think it was around 9 or 10 at night when I texted James that I saw an amazing house that was only 4 hours into being listed we had to get a viewing of right away. James was on top of it, and we quickly had the second viewing available. That house ended up being the one we bought! It also helped that James had some great ideas and strategies towards our offer standing out amongst the rest. There’s no doubt in my mind that I would recommend James to anyone, including my close friends and family. See a few houses with James and I don’t think you’ll need to look any further for a realtor. I know he’ll be our first stop if/when we ever go looking for a new house. Although, we love our house so much, we might never need to!
Andrew Benninghoff
James provides all-inclusive and trustworthy service at the highest level. When we started our home search, we knew absolutely nothing about the home buying process. We met other real estate agents who would push us towards higher-priced homes in areas that we disliked. They pressured us to take what we could get because our budget and timeframe weren't feasible. But then we met James. He came highly recommended through a glowing referral from a close friend. From Day 1, he provided a step-by-step virtual presentation of the home buying process and walked us through the pros and cons of each neighborhood we liked. We told him about our situation, our needs, and our price point. Unlike previous agents, he assured us that he could find us a home in the area we wanted in the price range our budget allowed in the timeframe we needed. And he delivered. At first, we thought we knew where we wanted to purchase a home, but every week, he showed us a new pocket of LA to not only reveal hidden gems, but also to help narrow our search criteria down to what was most important to our family. He provided a rating system to help us measure one home against another, and when we started receiving counter-offers, he would ask us illuminating questions to help us gauge how badly we wanted a home and whether it was really worth increasing our offer. James held our hand through the entire process and he was a consistently patient and reliable partner. He led us away from homes that he felt were overpriced, even though he would have received more commission. Even when his wife gave birth to his second daughter, he was still extremely responsive and available to provide excellent service to us (thank you to his wife, Sarah!). But ultimately what benefited us the most was that James' team consists of some of the most well-known and established real estate agents in LA. In this competitive market where any advantage matters, he was able to provide us with an incredibly rare off-market opportunity to purchase the home of our dreams. It was a beautiful Spanish house in the neighborhood we loved the most in the timeframe we needed it by, and it was even under our budget. On top of all that, once our offer was accepted (without any competing bids!), James set up all of our inspections for us and even scheduled a general contractor to come estimate any renovation/repair costs. He coordinated with a loan officer to help us lock in the best loan terms, he negotiated a generous seller's credit for us (despite the home being sold "as is"), and he built out a digital calendar of all the upcoming deadlines to guide us through our 21 day (!) escrow. From Day 1 all the way to Closing Day, James walked side-by-side with us through the entire home buying process. His service was exceptional and truly all-inclusive. His attention to detail and willingness to work so hard on our behalf while never pressuring us is as rare as it is valuable. We feel that we not only gained a home, but a true friend, and we still talk to him regularly about our remodel plans and his newborn daughter. James has our highest recommendation without reservation, and we feel fortunate to have worked with him as our fierce advocate. Thank you so much, James!
Karen Lee
James is fantastic. He's logical, intelligent, and knowledgeable with great attention to detail. James is incredibly patient and competent. He helped us with good humor through dozens of showings and more than a handful of offers. We really liked James after meeting him for the first time. He was genuine and humble. He was also very honest - not sugar coating anything, but staying positive and realistically optimistic. James is hard working. We talked to him on the phone in the evenings and weekends dozens of times throughout the process, and he was always willing to help, chat, clarify, and strategize - in a moment's notice. He always proactively reached out to listing agents to get a sense of the situation, and always came back with very useful ideas and pieces of knowledge which made us more competitive. This current housing market was very frustrating, but James was always on the ball, ready in an instant to schedule viewings, review listings, introduce us to high quality professionals, submit offers, and negotiate on our behalf. This readiness and organized nature is absolutely key in a market where sellers accept offers within a few days of listing, and we genuinely feel sorry for buyers who don't have an agent as competent as James. Throughout the process, we changed our plan at least four times with respect to the kind of dwelling we wanted, the kind of financing we wanted to try, and the neighborhood. We eventually decided on Long Beach, which meant that James had to drive for an hour each way on weekends to show us properties we wanted to see. His dedication is incredible. And it paid off big time. We are very happy with the property we purchased. It was a reach for us, and we got it! James helped us negotiate a large sum of money during closing, introduced us to a great lending professional (better than any we found ourselves), and answered hundreds of complicated "what if" questions we had along the way. We will always come back to James in the future with any real estate needs, and we recommend him to anyone.

In our first Zoom meeting James asked us, “What’s your timeline for buying a house?” Halfway joking, I said, “our lease expires soon, so about five weeks.” James paused and said, “That seems very unrealistic.” Fast-forward six weeks and we are now proud first-time home owners. In a hot seller’s market amidst throngs of people wanting to see houses and vastly competitive bidding, James was able to quickly schedule home tours, educate us on the home-buying process, help us successfully navigate the escrow process, and negotiate with the seller. Every time we emailed or texted James, day or night, he responded within the hour. When we expressed interest in a difficult fixer, James said we can do better. And, when we said, “James, get us this house.” He delivered. James goes well beyond the purview of a typical relator. I think it’s fair to say he did everything possible to help us while exercising tactful and unbiased judgments from assessing the houses to negotiating with the seller. His attitude, demeanor, humility, and expertise were all attributes that made this purchase possible and incredibly smooth. If it was not for James being our relator, I do not think we would have purchased a home anytime soon. Now, go email James. You’ll be glad you did.

James You represented us in searching for a new home. He secured appointments for showings right away and was very patient w/ us for each showing. He was very thorough in explaining everything step-by-step. His recommendations on what price it would take to get the house was SPOT ON! He knew the market very well. James exceeded our expectations and we were blown away by his professionalism and knowledge. I would definitely recommend James You to anyone looking for their next real estate agent!
missyleee
My wife and I interviewed several agents before we decided on James. James was well prepared and covered all aspects of selling/buying a home. He went over marketing & strategy, pricing as well as recommendations on how to best optimize the sale of our home in this market. He was always prompt and on-time. James' team did a FANTASTIC job in organizing our home, taking beautiful professional photos/videos (we were able to get $50K over ask!)!! The whole process was so smooth. James answered all our questions in a timely manner and went above & beyond to research homes and the area before we even asked!
zuser20141118151725929
James helped us find and buy our first home. He demystified the home buying process by being clear and incredibly helpful from the very beginning. He took the time to breakdown each step and was so patient and awesome to answer our questions along the way. We appreciated his approach in negotiation. He knew what would give us an edge. We trusted him 100%. Not only did James get us our dream home in a competitive market, he remained so helpful and organized throughout escrow. He has a recommendation for every trade you may need when you're going through this process and they're all awesome at their jobs. Aside from being great at his job, James is a kind and calm family man. He's just the type of person you want to hire to guide you through what could be a very stressful process. We were lucky to have a pretty smooth escrow and I feel like we owe it to his whole team working seamlessly together to get things done. Thanks James!

If we could give James more than 5 stars we would in a heartbeat. He helped us buy a home sight unseen in the middle of moving to a new city and having a baby. He visited units for us, negotiated on our behalf, and made the difficult loan and escrow process manageable. He was patient, insanely available, and almost immediate in his responses to our calls and texts. He has a friendly, even keeled demeanor and is a problem solver. We couldn’t recommend him more!
Aaron Wolfson
James made buying a home, especially during covid, stress free. He listens, understands your needs, and genuinely cares. He explained every step of the home buying process and answered all my questions with patience and in detail. My schedule wasn't the easiest to work with but he was extremely accommodating. His response time is immediate, even when it was late for him. We looked at a lot of places but James was always patient and positive. He understood what I was looking for and needed, even when I didn't. The home I purchased was not in an area I was initially searching for but James recommended and I love it. Market is competitive and despite it being a seller's market he worked well with seller's agent to close at lower price than expected. Escrow can be stressful but James is organized and walks you through each step of the process. He goes beyond to ensure that move in will go smoothly. I highly recommend James whether you are buying or selling.
vivianlee80
I first emailed James on the 18th September about selling my house... sale closed on the 22nd October at a price everyone was happy with, which should tell you all you need to know. Less than 5 weeks! James give me recommendations on how to stage my house with what I already had, so saving me money, and came armed with motivated buyers. He then smoothed over any tiny bumps in the road to closure once an offer was accepted. A whirlwind, drama free, of a sale! Thanks James and team!
Andrew Skivington
We moved to San Francisco 2 years ago and rented out our home in Los Angeles. After acclimating to the Bay area, we decided to buy a home up here. Being remote, we were dreading having to coordinate moving the tenants out of our LA home, making repairs, and getting the home ready for market. Having dealt with our share of lackluster real estate agents in the past, we prepared ourselves for a painful process. Thank God for James. He is tireless, knowledgeable, strategic, and most importantly has the best interest of his client. A lot of agents say that but very few actually mean it. His combination of hard work and grit coupled with an innate understanding of the market makes him truly unique. James put my wife and me at ease by laying out a solid plan for helping transition the tenants out during the COVID pandemic. He also coordinated prepping the house for market, recommending stagers and design accents, and constantly providing updates and clear lines of communication as we were hundreds of miles away. I never once had to step foot back in LA. We had an offer above listing come in before the house hit the market. We were thrilled and excited but James preached patience. He explained although the offer was solid, based on his analytics and data surrounding trends we would fetch more in the open market. My wife and I were reluctant letting this go but ultimately decided to trust James.  We are so glad we did. We fielded 15 offers after the first weekend of showings and sold for $75k over list. I can't say enough about James. Even as we search for homes in the Bay Area, my wife and I are constantly comparing every agent we come across to James and none of them are even in the same league.  If only James You worked the Bay Area as well!
Christopher Ahn
My wife and I worked with James on the recent sale of our property. A friend of mine referred James as they had worked together in the past and he was very satisfied with his performance. I would definitely recommend James to anyone looking for a competent, knowledgeable, and caring Real Estate Agent. His communication is excellent which I feel is vital with the purchase or sale of a home. James knew our neighborhood very well and spared no expense on the listing of our house. He was very organized and detail oriented. I would not hesitate to hire his services again. Our home sold quickly and at the sale price that he had projected. He is truly a master of his craft.
user5736137
James helped me sell my home amidst a divorce and a move. James was extremely professional, provided extensive knowledge regarding every step from the initial consultation to the close. This was extremely important as I was no longer local and relied on him for all feedback to be sound before moving forward. I am more than pleased with the service and compassion provided by James, and would work with him again.
Sascha Chang
Headline: Helped us purchase our first home; strongly recommend working with James Summary - well prepared for meetings - managed expectations well - very responsive; scheduling appointments on short notice during a competitive market for buyers - always felt like James was on our side - helped us clarify our criteria and must-haves - navigated Covid-19 paperwork and safety issues - stayed on top of escrow steps and deadlines - uses DocuSign (necessary) - loves real estate and has passion for it Narrative If you looking for a new home, James is exactly someone you want on your side! James helped my partner and I buy our first home together in Fullerton, CA. He asked thoughtful and clarifying questions to help understand our needs and desires in a home that fits within our budget. He was well prepared for every meeting and did his due diligence of the neighborhoods and market comps. He was very patient, honest, friendly, responsive, comfortable with having difficult conversations during negotiation, and respectful of COVID-19 safety procedures. I always felt like he supported our side/perspective while we were negotiating terms of the contract and closing. He answered all of our questions and also set realistic expectations by providing us with guidelines and other example home sales. During our closing process, he stayed in close communication with our escrow officer and loan officer to ensure a smooth and stress-free closing. After closing, he helped connect with us with contractors, inspectors and other resources as new homebuyers need to settle in. We are relived and excited that closing was a success and would ask James to represent us again!

Had tried selling my property in Sherman Oaks next to ventura Blvd with two different agents with no luck. Then a friend connected me with James and everything changed he saved my property from foreclosure. He gave me the right advice, thought me things no other realtor had done. And he priced it the same as previously when it had been sitting on the market for 90 days with no offers, go figure. I knew I was gonna be alright this 3rd time and my instinct was right. James changed everything from scratch, it became obvious that I had not received the right advise before. 1st offer came in the day it was listed and James got us in multiple offer bidding war after the 1st open house it was sold within the 1st week for over listing price. How do you go from no offers to bidding war? You hire the right realtor, one who knows what he’s doing, takes pride in his trade with integrity. James Really cared about my property and my family. He babied is. James saved me from financial ruin that’s to say the least. James’s broker Dave at think real estate is a genius btw, I knew I was in good, caring hands. He was by our side making sure all went well for us until we actually moved, he didn’t desert us when he got his profit . Also he was extremely patient during my tantrums, I’m not easy to deal with lol. He’s the best realtor ever. An Angel. See for yourself!

We had a rental property in DTLA that needed TLC. James stepped up for the job and went above and beyond to help us the get the in place in shape. He reached out and vetted various repairmen, stagers and cleaners and provided us with quality and cost efficient options. He provided the hands-on help we needed since we reside out-of-state. We received multiple offers, ABOVE asking price, within four days of listing thanks to James! We were confident we made the right choice and the results proved it.
mimilee888
My wife and I were considering putting our DTLA loft on the market so I reached out to James for coffee. James showed up with extensive research material that gave me a clear picture of the current DTLA market. After some thought, we decided to sell our loft and James helped me get my unit ready by referring a stager and painter. Our unit went on the market and we accepted an all cash offer 11 days later blowing away our time frame expectations! James worked hard to sell our unit, did extensive market research but more importantly was someone we could trust and had our best interest in mind. Would definitely recommend James You for any real estate related needs.

My husband and I interviewed quite a few real estate agents before choosing James & Dave of Think Real Estate Group. The other agents were fine but we weren't overwhelmed! James & Dave showed up extremely prepared, very energetic, - so much so, that we engaged them on the spot! We put our property on the market about 2 weeks after the lockdown started, so we couldn't use the strategy we had discussed, of the Open House. However, due to the James & Dave's hard work in getting the listing prepared, we had lots of interest, and within a couple of days, had an Offer well over asking price! We were really impressed! From that point, they handled the 30 day escrow, extremely professionally! They kept us up to date but also made sure everything was smooth - no stress whatsoever! I would without question, highlyrecommend these agents. They are everything an awesome real estate service should be, and lived up to every expectation we had, and more! Thank you guys so much!
Ciara MacMahon
TLDR: James is the best realtor out there and you should hire him immediately. We are first time buyers who never thought we could afford to own. We knew nothing about the process, but James made the time and answered the countless questions we had. I say this without exaggeration, if it weren’t for James, we would not be homeowners right now. He is the secret weapon every buyer wishes they had. James is knowledgable, smart, driven, clever, and easy to work with. You are literally losing money if you don’t hire him. I could keep going, but if this hasn’t hooked you yet, then I don’t know what will.
agentcoy
I was a California Realtor myself so I had several close friends who were in real estate but I decided to hire James to sell my property because I remember him as a diligent guy with warm heart (we were co-workers many years ago). He successfully closed the deal while masterfully negotiating the price to get me extra 30K. What more could you possibly want from a real estate agent?
Sean Park
We recently moved to LA and didn't understand the real estate market very well but, James patiently guided us through each of our target neighborhoods and answered all of our questions along the way. James' honest opinions and feedback throughout the process made us feel like he was always looking out for our best interests. Prior to the purchase of our home, we were very close to putting an offer on another home. Thanks to James and his thorough research, we were able to walk away from a potentially regrettable decision. Although, we had to restart the house search, James never showed signs of frustration. Instead, James continued to encourage us and because of his hard work and diligence, we ultimately found our dream home. This process of buying a home couldn't have been easier and more pleasant than it has been with James. We highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home.

Being new to the area we needed to not only find a home but also get an understanding about where we wanted to live. James went above and beyond on very short notice arranging to see 14+ homes in one weekend. We did find one home that met our criteria that was also in an area that we liked. James' advice during negotiations was spot on and even though there were higher bids our offer won because our contingencies were strong. We are very happy with our new home and would recommend James to anyone who is looking to purchase.

James assisted us in selling our first home and purchasing our second. He went above and beyond our expectations in both sales. Not only is he is very knowledgeable and professional, he is quick to assist with resolving any issues that came up and easing any concerns we had. He was very responsive no matter what time of day and we would highly recommend him as an agent.

James was a pleasure to work with. He is diligent, responsive, and knowledgeable. We were first time home buyers, and so we had a lot of questions every step of the way, but he was always patient with us and always responded timely no matter what time or what day of the week it was. He guided us through many listings from the valley to NELA and everything in between. He is extremely affable and easy to work with, and most importantly, he came through when it counted most -- he was instrumental in closing our transaction with the sellers despite a very compressed timeline. He made our lives much easier as he handled all the small hiccups during post-closing and was the main liaison/point-of-contact between us and the numerous third parties we had to deal with throughout the whole process. I couldn't recommend his services enough. Big thanks James :) we love our new home!

James You is an excellent real estate professional, and I highly recommend him. He took into account my lifestyle preferences and long term plans and patiently found for me a nearly perfect property. James is extremely punctual, never late for an appointment to view properties and he skillfully guided me through the home purchase process. You are in good hands with James.

James helped my husband and me sell our first home. There was a ton of pressure for the process to be quick and smooth due to us needing to move out of state the following month. We had a slew of questions and worries about the selling process, but James was very well-versed and professional while working with us which gave us comfort. He miraculously brought in a full-priced offer on our house one day after we listed it! He continued to give us lots of guidance throughout the escrow period to ensure that our experience was a positive one with minimal stress. We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with James and would recommend him, in a heartbeat, to anyone looking for a realtor!

I recently purchased my first home with James and he was wonderful to work with! James is very professional and was always available and responsive with my best interests at heart. He was able to address all my questions and concerns throughout the buying process, as much as it was. Buying a home can be intimidating but it was made easy with James' help. I am grateful to have had him as my agent. I highly recommend James if you're looking to buy a home!

Nothing but good thoughts come to mind when writing a review for James. We're grateful for his good heart and his steady temperament through turbulent waters. We couldn't have landed where we did without James and it taught us a lesson in surrounding ourselves with the real ones who truly care over the fake ones who just do their jobs.

If we could give James a 10 star rating we absolutely would! There were many complicated factors involved in our home buying process as we had just had our second child and were looking to relocate from SF to LA in 2021. James was patient throughout our entire journey finding the perfect home for our family. We knew exactly what we wanted and although it took a year to find, James was with us every step of the way. He was punctual, responsive, proactive and trustworthy. James was transparent and honest with us when he felt a home wasn't the right one for us never pushing us into a deal that wasn't right. He advised us to take our time to find "the one" and when we did, James was just as excited about our home as we were. Now let's get into the actual deal. James is a pro. In December 2021, at the height of a very competitive market he helped us make an offer that the seller couldn't refuse. On Saturday - we saw the house for the first time at open house. Sunday - James coordinated a private showing for us with the agent to get a second look. Monday morning at 9am we submitted our offer and by 10:45am the same day our offer had been accepted. The seller didn't even counter offer. Not only that, we were able to close escrow within 21 days with James guiding us through the process every step of the way. Thanks to James we had access to the best resources during inspection and closing. James is our realtor and friend for life. Thanks James!

Working with James for the sale of our condo was easy and straightforward. As a result of the pandemic, DTLA has been a buyer's market. We were hesitant at first to list our place, but with a baby on the way, we needed to move quick. James always came prepared with his market research, and directed us every step of the way. What set our place apart from the other units was the help from his team of experts. The interior designer and photographer really showcased our place from a buyer's point of view. My husband and I felt very fortunate to not only have received one offer, but two offers, after the open house.  I enjoyed working with James, and couldn't recommend him highly enough!
Christina P
This review is long overdue, partly because I am an expert procrastinator but also because I couldn't find the right words to really reflect what a great experience I had with James.  I reached out to James over 2 years ago as I was starting my search for a home after renting for almost 10 years in Los Angeles.  From the very beginning, James was so patient and informative with me (a complete beginner to the world of real estate, and a slow learner when it comes to real estate and financing lingo), and I was so relieved to discover that this attribute of James lasted through the entire two long years it took for me to finally find a house I loved and go through the entire contract process.   Somehow James knew exactly what I was looking for and was so honest and realistic in guiding me through which houses I should seriously consider, and which ones I should forgo.  Never did I ever feel pressured or hastened in my search, and once I did reach a decision and entered escrow, James guided me through every step.  4 months into living in our new home, we love it more each day and we have James to thank for that.  Thank you, James, for making our first home-buying experience such a special one!

In our first Zoom meeting James asked us, "What's your timeline for buying a house?" Halfway joking, I said, "our lease expires soon, so about five weeks." James paused and said, "That seems very unrealistic."
Fast-forward six weeks and we are now proud first-time home owners. In a hot seller's market amidst throngs of people wanting to see houses and vastly competitive bidding, James was able to quickly schedule home tours, educate us on the home-buying process, help us successfully navigate the escrow process, and negotiate with the seller.
Every time we emailed or texted James, day or night, he responded within the hour.
When we expressed interest in a difficult fixer, James said we can do better.
And, when we said, "James, get us this house." He delivered.
James goes well beyond the purview of a typical relator. I think it's fair to say he did everything possible to help us while exercising tactful and unbiased judgments from assessing the houses to negotiating with the seller. His attitude, demeanor, humility, and expertise were all attributes that made this purchase possible and incredibly smooth. If it was not for James being our relator, I do not think we would have purchased a home anytime soon.
Now, go email James. You'll be glad you did.

We moved to San Francisco 2 years ago and rented out our home in Los Angeles. After acclimating to the Bay area, we decided to buy a home up here. Being remote, we were dreading having to coordinate moving the tenants out of our LA home, making repairs, and getting the home ready for market. Having dealt with our share of lackluster real estate agents in the past, we prepared ourselves for a painful process.

Thank God for James. He is tireless, knowledgeable, strategic, and most importantly has the best interest of his client. A lot of agents say that but very few actually mean it. His combination of hard work and grit coupled with an innate understanding of the market makes him truly unique.

James put my wife and me at ease by laying out a solid plan for helping transition the tenants out during the COVID pandemic. He also coordinated prepping the house for market, recommending stagers and design accents, and constantly providing updates and clear lines of communication as we were hundreds of miles away. I never once had to step foot back in LA.

We had an offer above listing come in before the house hit the market. We were thrilled and excited but James preached patience. He explained although the offer was solid, based on his analytics and data surrounding trends we would fetch more in the open market. My wife and I were reluctant letting this go but ultimately decided to trust James. 
We are so glad we did. We fielded 15 offers after the first weekend of showings and sold for $75k over list. I can't say enough about James.

Even as we search for homes in the Bay Area, my wife and I are constantly comparing every agent we come across to James and none of them are even in the same league. 

If only James You worked the Bay Area as well!

James provides all-inclusive and trustworthy service at the highest level.

When we started our home search, we knew absolutely nothing about the home buying process. We met other real estate agents who would push us towards higher-priced homes in areas that we disliked. They pressured us to take what we could get because our budget and timeframe weren't feasible.

But then we met James. He came highly recommended through a glowing referral from a close friend. From Day 1, he provided a step-by-step virtual presentation of the home buying process and walked us through the pros and cons of each neighborhood we liked. We told him about our situation, our needs, and our price point. Unlike previous agents, he assured us that he could find us a home in the area we wanted in the price range our budget allowed in the timeframe we needed. And he delivered.

At first, we thought we knew where we wanted to purchase a home, but every week, he showed us a new pocket of LA to not only reveal hidden gems, but also to help narrow our search criteria down to what was most important to our family. He provided a rating system to help us measure one home against another, and when we started receiving counter-offers, he would ask us illuminating questions to help us gauge how badly we wanted a home and whether it was really worth increasing our offer.

James held our hand through the entire process and he was a consistently patient and reliable partner. He led us away from homes that he felt were overpriced, even though he would have received more commission. Even when his wife gave birth to his second daughter, he was still extremely responsive and available to provide excellent service to us (thank you to his wife, Sarah!).

But ultimately what benefited us the most was that James' team consists of some of the most well-known and established real estate agents in LA. In this competitive market where any advantage matters, he was able to provide us with an incredibly rare off-market opportunity to purchase the home of our dreams. It was a beautiful Spanish house in the neighborhood we loved the most in the timeframe we needed it by, and it was even under our budget.

On top of all that, once our offer was accepted (without any competing bids!), James set up all of our inspections for us and even scheduled a general contractor to come estimate any renovation/repair costs. He coordinated with a loan officer to help us lock in the best loan terms, he negotiated a generous seller's credit for us (despite the home being sold "as is"), and he built out a digital calendar of all the upcoming deadlines to guide us through our 21 day (!) escrow.

From Day 1 all the way to Closing Day, James walked side-by-side with us through the entire home buying process. His service was exceptional and truly all-inclusive. His attention to detail and willingness to work so hard on our behalf while never pressuring us is as rare as it is valuable. We feel that we not only gained a home, but a true friend, and we still talk to him regularly about our remodel plans and his newborn daughter. James has our highest recommendation without reservation, and we feel fortunate to have worked with him as our fierce advocate. Thank you so much, James!

My wife and I interviewed several agents before we decided on James.  James was well prepared and covered all aspects of selling/buying a home.  He went over marketing & strategy, pricing as well as recommendations on how to best optimize the sale of our home in this market.  He was always prompt and on-time.  James' team did a FANTASTIC job in organizing our home, taking beautiful professional photos/videos (we were able to get $50K over ask!)!!  The whole process was so smooth. James answered all our questions in a timely manner and went above & beyond to research homes and the area before we even asked! 
James L.
James is fantastic. He's logical, intelligent, and knowledgeable with great attention to detail. James is incredibly patient and competent. He helped us with good humor through dozens of showings and more than a handful of offers.

We really liked James after meeting him for the first time. He was genuine and humble. He was also very honest - not sugar coating anything, but staying positive and realistically optimistic.

James is hard working. We talked to him on the phone in the evenings and weekends dozens of times throughout the process, and he was always willing to help, chat, clarify, and strategize - in a moment's notice. He always proactively reached out to listing agents to get a sense of the situation, and always came back with very useful ideas and pieces of knowledge which made us more competitive.

This current housing market was very frustrating, but James was always on the ball, ready in an instant to schedule viewings, review listings, introduce us to high quality professionals, submit offers, and negotiate on our behalf. This readiness and organized nature is absolutely key in a market where sellers accept offers within a few days of listing, and we genuinely feel sorry for buyers who don't have an agent as competent as James.

Throughout the process, we changed our plan at least four times with respect to the kind of dwelling we wanted, the kind of financing we wanted to try, and the neighborhood. We eventually decided on Long Beach, which meant that James had to drive for an hour each way on weekends to show us properties we wanted to see. His dedication is incredible. And it paid off big time. We are very happy with the property we purchased. It was a reach for us, and we got it!

James helped us negotiate a large sum of money during closing, introduced us to a great lending professional (better than any we found ourselves), and answered hundreds of complicated "what if" questions we had along the way. We will always come back to James in the future with any real estate needs, and we recommend him to anyone.

This review is long overdue.  James was our realtor for the sale of our home.  My wife and I were expecting our second child, so Covid created some obvious health safety concerns that made timing and logistics tricky through the entire process. We had already worked with James a couple years before when we purchased the property so we trusted him to take care of us.
Despite our established relationship, James took nothing for granted and came prepared with thorough market research and an entire playbook.    He took the time to walk us through various options, his rationale, and ultimately drove us towards a target strategy that considered all of our unique objectives.
Whereas setting strategy is the fun part of the job, execution is where James really differentiated himself with this sale.  Through James's stewardship, our home was beautifully staged and marketed.   My family and I were displaced for only a couple of targeted and carefully planned windows and we had overflowing interested and multiple competitive offers.  And so, when we accepted an offer we were ready to celebrate.  
However, as with any major transaction, there will always be unknown unknowns.    With our sale, we had some hurdles to overcome to close the deal and this is where James was truly special.   He moved beyond acting just as our agent and acted like an owner.   While my family and I adjusted to becoming a family of 4, James handled every twist and turn with grit and professionalism.   James consulted us, kept us informed, and protected us where necessary.  James willed the sale of our home over the line and we are so grateful.  
If you are looking for more than just an agent and want to be prepared for that 1% scenario, give James a call.

I had a rental property in DTLA that needed work after the tenant vacated. James stepped up for the job and went above and beyond to help get the place ready. He reached out and vetted various repairmen, stagers, and cleaners. The place looked amazing once all the work was completed.  Once it hit the market, we had lots of showing and received multiples offers. Thanks to James it took 10 days to get the home in escrow when the average days on market is around 60 to 90 days in DTLA. Our unit was the only unit that sold in the past 4 months in the building while 4 other units are still trying to sell and doing price reductions. James understood how to position the listing to sell and his unique marketing strategy and negotiation skills are what really got the job done. Hire James and he will get the job done, and of course the best results!

James was a pleasure and delight to work with and I would recommend him without hesitation. Put aside being skilled, knowledgeable and responsive - which James is without question. For me personally, whenever I choose to work with anyone, it comes down to a person's true character because I believe that's what matters most. And when it comes to making a big decision such as purchasing your first home, the importance of good character is magnified.

Will this agent patiently guide me through the process and answer all the questions I have?  Will this agent, in turn, ask me the right questions to ensure I'm thinking about things thoroughly?  Will this agent stick with me to the end and have my best interest at heart, even if it's an inconvenience and not in his/her best interest?

These were some of the questions I had when I was looking for an agent. And now that he's helped me successfully close on my first home, I can definitively say James checked the box on all of them. 
Warren K
We had the pleasure of working with James for the sale of our home.  We were unsure if we were going to move and went back and forth at the beginning.  James was patient with us during this decision making process.  We moved during the home selling and James kept us fully informed and updated.  He gave us sound advice and understood the market very well.  He is very responsive and answers all questions.  He will do everything to make sure your property is ready to sell and get the most possible for your home.  We highly recommend James! 
Mary A.
We couldn't have had a more seamless experience buying our home with James. He patiently answered all of our questions and was amazingly responsive from start to finish of the entire home searching and buying process. We appreciated his genuine desire to help us find our dream home and would highly recommend him to others! 
Linda P.
I first emailed James on the 18th September about selling my house... sale closed on the 22nd October at a price everyone was happy with, which should tell you all you need to know.  Less than 5 weeks!

James give me recommendations on how to stage my house with what I already had, so saving me money, and came armed with motivated buyers.  He then smoothed over any tiny bumps in the road to closure once an offer was accepted. A whirlwind, drama free, of a sale!   Thanks James and team! 
Andrew S.
Quick, responsive, knowledgeable, patient. His experience and insights helped us win a competitive bidding process for a home even though we weren't the highest bidder. Couldn't be happier and will recommend and use him again in the future.

Narrative
If you are looking for a new home, James is exactly someone you want on your side! James helped my partner and I buy our first home together in Fullerton, CA. He asked thoughtful and clarifying questions to help understand our needs and desires in a home that fits within our budget.  He was well prepared for every meeting and did his due diligence of the neighborhoods and market comps. He was very patient, honest, friendly, responsive, comfortable with having difficult conversations during negotiation, and respectful of COVID-19 safety procedures.  I always felt like he supported our side/perspective while we were negotiating terms of the contract and closing.  He answered all of our questions and also set realistic expectations by providing us with guidelines and other example home sales.  During our closing process, he stayed in close communication with our escrow officer and loan officer to ensure a smooth and stress-free closing.  After closing, he helped connect with us with contractors, inspectors and other resources as new homebuyers need to settle in.  We are relived and excited that closing was a success and would ask James to represent us again!

My Husband and I worked with James on the recent sale of our property.  A friend of mine referred James as they had worked together in the past and he was very satisfied with his performance.  I would definitely recommend James to anyone looking for a competent, knowledgeable, and caring Real Estate Agent. His communication is excellent, which I feel is vital with the purchase or sale of a home. James knew our neighborhood very well and spared no expense on the listing of our house. He was very organized and detail oriented. I would not hesitate to hire his services again. Our home sold quickly and at the sale price that he had projected.  He is truly a master of his craft.

Thank you James!!

James helped us find and buy our first home. He demystified the home buying process by being clear and incredibly helpful from the very beginning. He took the time to breakdown each step and was so patient and awesome to answer our questions along the way. We appreciated his approach in negotiation. He knew what would give us an edge. We trusted him 100%. Not only did James get us our dream home in a competitive market, he remained so helpful and organized throughout escrow. He has a recommendation for every trade you may need when you're going through this process and they're all awesome at their jobs. Aside from being great at his job, James is a kind and calm family man. He's just the type of person you want to hire to guide you through what could be a very stressful process. We were lucky to have a pretty smooth escrow and we feel like we owe it to his whole team working seamlessly together to get things done. Thanks James! 
Daniel L.
James was our realtor while finding a home. He is excellent to work with! Throughout the process he was looking out for our best interest. He spent a lot of time gathering a sense of what we wanted in a home. Each home we saw, he broke down the pros/cons from a realtors perspective. He gave insight on other important things (potential scope of projects we wanted to do, things that would impact resale value, etc). Initially we loved one home, and inspections revealed numerous major systems problems. As first time home buyers, James was very patient and gave good insights. Ultimately we passed- and we are so grateful for his advice, as it helped us avoid a disaster home situation. Last, but not least, he’s great company, which is a bonus because James, my husband and I spent a lot of weekends together... Once we found our home, he helped make the escrow process as low stress as possible , and was available and reliable... A testament to how good he is- in this crazy market- he helped us buy a home we love for a price we are very happy with, in less than 3 months… Overall James is trustworthy, knowledgeable, and reliable. All very important qualities in the person helping guide one of the biggest financial decisions you make in your life.

JAMES YOU SAVED ME. I owned a prime centrally located property in Sherman Oaks for 15 years of which tried to sell since 2018. My property was in Sherman Oaks next to Ventura Blvd in Sherman Oaks, on the market twice before I met JAMES with no luck I had even hired a well known hot shot realtor after the other douche and not one offer within 3 months. Yea right. Being in a high risk situation with auctions etc. I had people praying on my failure and down grading my property. Until I met JAMES!! The best agent I’ve ever encountered, the saving grace and more!! When I met him I was in deep trouble about to loose my property. I was a high maintenance person to deal with, because all the previous agents had failed me. How do you go from no offers with a well known hot shot agent with no offers in 3 months to selling your property like it was supposed to sell in the 1st place? I did it with JAMES YOU who knows how to sell a property! He gave me easy advice and SILD MY HOUSE IVER ASKING ORICE IN LESS THAN A WEEK 21 day escrow.
