Hello Jim, Here are my thoughts on your performance representing me in this transaction: You represented me very well. You did a fine job. When I expressed my interest in making an offer on 724 Pine, you "took the ball" and quickly handled the negotiation. I think one key point was that you understood my flexibility and were able to make a few concessions to the sellers immediately that made my offer stand out from the rest. For example: You allowed the sellers to retain possession until April 1st, enabling their orderly move. You were able to dispose of all the small disclosures quickly so that they didn't entangle the negotiations. When we "discovered" the damaged hearth, which was undisclosed, you immediately contacted the selling agent and obtained his agreement to repair it. You introduced me to Noah Sanpaolo, a trusted repairman. After the sale, you remained in contact and helped me resolve other small snags that arose. You represented me professionally and made my purchase smooth and agreeable. Thank you for your help. Read More

We appreciated Jim’s skill set in marketing our property and giving us valued input throughout the negotiation process. He is a very good listener and understood where our values were while negotiating the best deal for us. Being a professor of engineering I know how important it is to understand the details. Jim has a thorough understanding of the details in selling real estate, he did a fantastic job with the marketing and contractual negotiations; my wife and I both recommend Jim to anyone selling or buying real estate in Pebble Beach.

Jim has been my trusted Realtor for over 5 years. We have purchased and sold multiple properties with Jim in Pebble Beach and Carmel”. When coming to Pebble Beach for the first time I thought what a beautiful place to be. Jim was very patient in working with us on our first purchase, it took several months to conclude and Jim was there every step of the way. As we became familiar with the area the transactions became much easier and with Jim “on the ground” on the Monterey Peninsula, he was able to give us his valuable opinion so we could make important decisions.

I interviewed several well-known brokers or realtors for selling my property in Pebble Beach. After my due diligence, I selected Jim to list my property for sale. At our first meeting, that he came to the house, he was pleasant, friendly, and easy to talk to. He came well prepared with a market analysis and recent sales data and presented his approach in marketing and selling my property. I explained to him my motivation and interest and he was pleasantly agreeable to my terms. After we signed the listing agreement, he prepared the house with some painting and had his handyman take care of some details. He even staged the house with his own furniture. He held open houses practically every weekend until the house was sold. His strategy and offer negotiation skills were effective and we successfully sold the house 100% as is. Prior to closing he helped with the final cleaning and discarding of leftover material in the garage. With his experience and positive attitude, he proved to be the right choice. He was flexible to discuss alternatives and agreed to perform to my decisions. He proved to be fair, responsive, and easy to work with. I would highly recommend Jim to my friends and I would be happy to use him again in the future. If you want a hassle-free, pleasant, honest, and experienced broker, Jim is your guy! Read More

Jim welcomes new Sellers to be part of a team. Always listening and patient to hear about new ideas for the best way to market, show, and invite buyers to see the potential of the property. Jim is great with people, always making them feel that their voices are an integral part of getting the results desired. In the two years that we worked with him, we (our Estate) valued the outstanding communication that we received. For a property like ours with enormous potential and some challenges, Jim seemed to enjoy the process even on days when a showing could have had a different outcome. I am 100% certain that Buyers and Sellers alike appreciate his good humor, attention to detail, willingness to listen and work as a team. Read More

Jim sets an incredibly high bar for what it means to be a real estate agent. The level of service, personal attention, and dedicated commitment to our needs that we saw from Jim stand far above any other agent we have worked with. Jim has a wealth of experience and an established local network. From finding the right property to negotiating the purchase and conducting diligence, Jim was there for us. When we left for vacation, he was there to help with the closing process, find and interview contractors and do the final inspections. Even after the Closing, he is still helping us sort through our remodeling project. Cannot endorse him highly enough! Read More
