I could not have been more pleased with Jim and my first home buying experience. His expertise, professionalism, and attention to detail are second to none and ensured a smooth and favorable transaction. Not only did Jim negotiate a significant price reduction, he was also able to structure an escrow that enabled me to take full advantage of both the Federal tax credit and the California state tax credit. He also secured a considerable credit from the seller for items in the house that worked just fine, but weren’t at 100%. Again, another testament to Jim’s comprehensive style. Jim’s meticulous and methodical approach put me at ease as he handled everything from A to Z thoroughly and expeditiously. Jim encouraged me to call with any questions, and I took him up on his offer. Jim happily answered my numerous phone calls and made sure I completely understood the home buying process. No one understands the real estate market and business like Jim. I would recommend Jim to anyone looking to buy a home. I can honestly say that if it wasn’t for Jim, I wouldn’t be in the house of my dreams.
