I really don’t even know where to start with this review but let me just say that Jim is by far the kindest, most knowledgeable, and most trustworthy real estate agent in the city. This was my first time purchasing a home and I literally knew nothing about the real estate market. Jim was extraordinarily PATIENT with me and actually listened to my concerns and questions about the real estate market. I am a bit of a nervous person but Jim had time to talk to me even when I was calling him more than my girlfriend! He was able to find me a place that fit EXACTLY what I was looking for at a price that makes me smile every time I think about it. Jim was born and raised in the Bay Area and knows just about everything there is to know about the real estate market here as well as knowing just about every other agent in the city. This was huge for me being from the Midwest and really not having a very firm grasp on the market here except for knowing that it was pricey and that there were some neighborhoods I wasn’t interested in. On top of that my situation was that I was on a tight budget and was looking at some fix-me-up properties and with Jim’s construction experience he was able to accurately assess the condition that each property was in.
I certainly wasn’t looking at the most expensive places in the city but Jim treated me like a rock star the entire time, even PICKING ME UP AT WORK on my lunch break in order to sneak in a quick showing. The guy really does do absolutely EVERYTHING to make you a satisfied client and I can’t recommend him highly enough.
If you are looking to buy a place don’t waste your time with people who don’t know the market and don’t treat your purchase as something special, GO WITH JIM!
