Jim was easy to work with and super knowledgeable. He knows the South Bay Area really well. He helped us with a lot of different issues that popped up. He was very responsive every time we had questions. His assistant, Helga, was also really good. They were able to help us access workers for a rental property we own as well. I highly recommend him!
Jim is the best in the business. My family and I have gone through Jim for our two home purchases in Manhattan Beach, and he has helped a countless number of family and friends as well. His relationships, market knowledge, and personality are the reasons he’s so successful!
There are just no words to describe! The most professional, intelligent, efficient, and available! He made the impossible possible, in no time! An absolute joy to interact. It is fascinating to see how much Mr. Van Zanten cares for his clients and is devoted to provide them what they need and even more! Absolutely caring and, simply gets the job done! We were trying for years to find a household to raise our young children and if it was not for him, we would have never gotten our dream house! Lucky to have met him!
Jim was truly a pleasure to work with during our first home purchase. He was patient, knowledgeable, and always had a good sense of humor! We accidentally became his clients, because he randomly showed us a house, and we are so glad he did. So many times realtors have more allegiance to the seller’s real estate team rather than you and will try to downplay your concerns, but he knew exactly how to support us in every request to get what we needed. We trusted his expertise immediately, and he continued to have great advice and opinions. Thank you, Jim, for the wonderful experience, and we will highly recommend you to everyone!
We have been working with Jim for over 25 years on the sale and purchase of multiple properties -- and we keep coming back for more! Jim’s extensive knowledge and expertise go far beyond that of your typical real estate agent. He has helped us with creative approaches to financing purchases, finding dependable resources and is always willing to advise us on many matters in the real estate realm. Most importantly, he is a man of utmost integrity and always does what he promises -- and more. He navigates all the difficult details (and people!) that are part of most real estate transactions with great skill and experience, always with our best interests at heart. We don’t trust anyone but Jim with our real estate needs.
Jim has been with us since we bought our first home in 2013 and recently helped us purchase a new home and ran a successful sale process on our previous house. He & his team have been tremendous partners throughout and Jim is someone we rely on for honest feedback and good advice. As an added bonus he has lots of connectivity with local contractors and service providers which takes a lot of guess work out of hiring professionals
