"Working with James was an amazing experience. He guided me through the process of buying my third investment property. James took the initiative to schedule so many of my post-appraisal duties: the inspection as well as all the other specific inspections I wanted. I didn’t have to worry about a thing. Great experience. I highly recommend James." - Sarah

"James Allen was instrumental in helping us sell our Duplex in Santa Monica. He was always highly professional, personable, and possessed a solid understanding of the West side market. We also appreciated his ability to be very forthright in letting us know what we needed to do to improve our building in order to sell it. Selling a property that you've lived in for more than 30 years can be very stressful, and he understood this and clearly worked to make it easier for us by being responsive, maintaining good communication, and answering any questions that we had regarding Escrow documents"

"What can I say about James Allan. I think he is the best at what he does. And I`ve worked with several. He sold our home in Marina del Rey,California in less than thirty days. He went far and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly, ALWAYS giving us amazing advice the whole step of the way. He also had a strategy from day one and understood our concerns. My wife and I had recently had twins so it was not easy getting out of the house or have it look presentable. He helped us move things, adjusted the hours to some scheduled visits with the potential buyers and was flexible when we needed him to be. Also, James has great relationships, since he has been doing this a long time. So he knows what to expect. He also knows the area like no one else, how to price your home at a number that is real, enticing and beneficial. James listens and is very communicative and always found time to talk when we needed to. My wife and I are not the easiest people, especially after having twins, but James has the tools and experience to deal and work with anyone. That is why he thrives, He knows his numbers, he knows his job, but he KNOWS PEOPLE and looks out for them. If there is anyone looking to sell their home, contact James ALLAN, he truly is the best. A man of his word! Thanks for everything James. " - J & M

James was exceptional from beginning to end, he was always available to answer questions, and explain the process. I'm very grateful he was referred to me. " - Jolene

★★★★★
"I will never deal with any other real estate professional again. Once I enlisted James' services, I was spoiled. He has a vast cache of knowledge about pricing and values of real property in Los Angeles. He gets the job done quickly and efficiently. There are always issues in real estate, but you won't know about most of them as the experience this guy brings to the table cuts off problems before they begin. I can go on and on, but you get the gist and there is only so much room in these reviews. " - J. M.
