"I immediately felt at home working with Jim, since he is a careful listener, and in a very short time understood my taste and what I was looking for. Jim is a very responsive person, always available, always returns your calls, always keeping a good mood and is extremely helpful. Jim also has a calm and down to earth attitude, which also helped me. It has been a true pleasure working with Jim during those months and I would be happy to recommend him for future references." - Sara

"I am an LA-based interior designer and a real estate investor, so I deal with real estate agents several times a year, all over SoCal. Some are better than others..but Jim is the best I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He spent a few weeks sending me listings via email, asking for feedback on each, in order to get a sense of what I liked before we spent time looking. I was unfamiliar with the Santa Ynez valley so the first trip was dedicated to a thorough tour of the various towns in the valley and discussion on the personalities of each. With resources like Redfin and Zillow, it makes "shopping" easier for people who are looking. But what is rarely easy is the process between finding the home and closing on it. This is where Jim and his support team excel. He provided excellent guidance in the negotiation process, and was patient and calm in the face of the fallout from a fairly rocky and stressful inspection. Documents were passed swiftly and correctly, and he was able to develop a rapport with the seller's broker that made the process very collaborative and smooth. Lastly, Jim has provided ongoing support since the transaction has completed. He has passed me recommendations for service providers and, since I am still in LA, has even met with them on my behalf. All in all, the best of experiences."

"Jim did a wonderful job marketing our property and advising us on how to best prepare it for sale. His carefully crafted written description captured unique and exceptional highlights to stimulate buyer interest. He operationally handled all showings to optimize prospective buyer perception. He was an outstanding partner in obtaining an excellent sales result."

"Our house went on the market the day the stock market had a major downward correction because of Covid-19. Jim's marketing skills were impressive to say the least. His connections with skilled professionals in the art of real estate exposure netted the perfect buyer for our property within a short period of time-four weeks! This was the first time we sold a house and Jim patiently guided us through every step of the way giving us the confidence that we needed. We heartily recommend contacting Jim if you are considering selling or buying a house. His dedication to his client and the process of real estate transactions is superior."

"Jim was a fantastic help to get us moved in to our first property in US. He was very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and easy to deal with. What was most impressive to me was his honest approach that I found lacking among some of the other agents I met. I recommend him for anyone looking to buy a property in SB area. I'll get in touch with him myself when its time to upgrade." - Abhinav
