James is an excellent sales associate and it has been a pleasure to work with him. He was able to leverage the services of the company to assist us when we were looking fro a property management company 3 years ago and did an outstanding job of managing a complex sale via the relocation program and selling to our existing tenant most recently. he is ethical, reasonable and assuring in his approach and very credible. i look forward to working with him again as it is high possible i will move back at some point in my career.

James was a great help and even helped organize staging and repairs while he was on a personal vacation. Always went above and beyond to help us.

James Collins is the consummate professional AND a caring, ethical person. I had been referred to him five years ago by a friend, an agent in Orange County, when I bought my house in Walnut Creek. He was tireless in his efforts to ensure that I got the house I wanted at a fair price and that all went well AFTER the sale, as well. He maintained contact with me throughout those years, so when I decided to sell, I naturally called James. I've already told all my friends that he is the ONLY agent they should call. He's brilliant.

We sold our home as part of a relocation package. It was an emotional sale as we had been in the home for 10years. We also needed to get to our destination quickly to get the kids enrolled on school. James did an outstanding job communicating and coordinating the move. His expertise and willingness to assist in every aspect of the preparation and sale was phenomenal. We were blessed to have found James and would refer him openly.\r\n\r\nThank you.

Our agent, Maria Eberle, was exceptional. I knew from our first meeting that she was someone special, and that proved out time and time again during the course of working together. Among her stand-out qualities: she knew the market well and made recommendations accordingly. She recommended skilled contractors, hired and coordinated their schedules in a timely fashion, and oversaw the work we had done in preparation for selling the home (new paint & carpet, minor fixes, staging, etc.). She was always available whenever we had questions and was quick to respond and/or find answers. She communicated proactively and thoroughly. She balanced top-notch professionalism with kindness, sincerity and a sense of humor. She showed a deep sense of care for our family - in fact by the time the sale closed, she felt like part of our family. She's simply a good person and one we felt blessed to have on our team.
