About James

Born and raised in Palo Alto, James Steele has taken the real estate world by storm, becoming the go-to agent for everyone from first time tech buyers to established Peninsula residents alike.

James utilizes cutting edge marketing and negotiation skills to achieve top dollar for his sellers, from aerial photography and lifestyle videos, to international syndication and Matterport 3D Tours.  His forward thinking marketing plans, individualized listing strategies, and expertly honed negotiating skills have helped him achieve record setting prices for his clients.  When working with buyers, his extensive analytic analysis has helped buyers prevail in even the most competitive bidding wars and obtain their dream homes.

What he’s most proud of is his reputation in the agent community for being ethical and hard working, as well as his longstanding relationships with his clients, which often transition into friendships that last long after close of escrow.

When he’s not selling real estate, James spends time with his wife Brooke and their two dogs, as well as his family and close friends.  He enjoys architecture, urban planning and development, food, wine, craft beer, traveling, live music, and rooting for the Warriors, Giants, and his USC Trojans.
