“James and Eva were fantastic throughout the process.”
“We had the pleasure of working with James and Eva to recently sell our property on Waller Street. It was a two floor, three bedroom, two bath condo located one block from Duboce Park. James and Eva were fantastic throughout the process. We would wholeheartedly recommend them as real estate agents for anyone selling a property in SF.
Since we bought our place in 2008, and had to move to New York City for job related reasons in 2010, we struggled with some poor market timing. Nevertheless, James and Eva helped us make the best of the situation by helping us maximize the value of our property. This included helping us see the full value of property and coming up with a plan for work that would accentuate those qualities for the market. They have vision and tremendous project management skills. Eva’s husband is also a general contractor, so we got great service and very competitive rates. We frankly didn’t realize that real estate agents could be so full service and helpful. Part of this is unfair to other brokers; with James and Eva, you get two very smart, motivated, organized people for one broker fee.
Our property looked fantastic during the myriad open houses they held. And they took every opportunity to show the property. They created a lovely website and various attractive printed marketing materials. They kept incredibly detailed observations of any interested parties, and diligently followed up with them regarding interest. They projected an air of confidence, in an uncertain market.
They were savvy and strong negotiators when our buyers came into the picture, and helped us close the sale as smoothly and quickly as possible.
Throughout most of the renovation, marketing and contract period, we were either remote in Northern California or already relocated to NYC. We had complete confidence in James and Eva running the show in our absence. They were incredibly communicative about every step in the process, holding our hand when we needed it, guiding us based on their experience, but not pressuring us. They were always available to answer questions and very responsive to our concerns.
We decided to work with James and Eva based on their performance on a sale of a property down the street from us. Since we did not know them personally, or shared any contacts, we were sure to interview other agents as well. They had a drive, energy, and vision that other agents did not. While others were telling us what the market would bear as if we didn’t get a say in the matter, Eva and James had a more aggressive, creative approach, and the track record to back it up. We are really glad we worked with them and would do it again in a heartbeat.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have!”
