"James is awesome. He is easy to work with, thoughtful, responsive, and detail-oriented. James was patient and proactive in helping us find and close on the perfect house. I highly recommend James Laden!" Keala G.

"James is an awesome realtor. We purchased one house with him in San Jose 6 years ago. We just purchased our dream home with him in Scotts valley and couldn't be happier. He gave excellent advice, and he never pressured us. James is super responsive and reliable. He guided us thru the process when our bank was being interesting we would definitely recommend James to anyone" Shannon H.

"I used James as my realtor and highly recommend him. His knowledge and experience saved us a lot of money. Especially in the crazy real estate market of the Bay Area. My wife had been looking for a house and found the one she really wanted. Unfortunately, someone put a bid in right before we did. James suggested we do not go into a bidding war and to put in a "secondary" offer as he felt the other offer would not go through. Well the other buyers did not work out and our lower-priced secondary offer was accepted before it went back on the market. James also told us he thought the house was overpriced for the area. He said if it appraised lower from what we offered we would go back to the bargaining table. Well once again he was right, so we went and offered less again due to appraisal. He suggested we do offer something over the appraisal to "get" the house. We did and it was accepted and we still got the house for a lot less than our first original offer!! Great job James, did I also mention this was a V.A. loan which sometimes can be harder to work with. Not only did James work with this kind of loan he also worked directly with our loan officer to make our loan and home buying go smoothly. During this process which can be stressful, James was level headed, professional, and made sure we got the house of our dreams" Joseph L.

"We moved next to James 5 years ago. During that time my husband was laid off for two years. Money was tight, savings gone and living on only my income. Times were tight and we tried for 8 months to get a Loan Modification sending in mounds of paperwork to who-knows-where. Nothing was happening, behind in payments and about to lose our house to foreclosure. I mentioned this all to James. He immediately got a business card from a lawyer who handles this type of situation. Within 3 months after our initial visit with this lawyer our monthly payments went from $2898 to $1278 per month at 2% for the next 5 years!! We were ecstatic with the news. My husband is still unemployed but we are still in the house thanks to James' knowledge and help and enjoying life right now. I can't think of anyone else who we would want to sell our house except for James. He is so knowledgeable and professional." Frederick C.
