After a bad experience with another agent and valuable time lost James reached out to us and assured us he could sell our home. Even though we were extremely reluctant we decided to put our trust in him. He is probably the most honest, caring, hard working agents in Santa Clara County. James sold our home before it went on the market! He and his entire team were awesome. They are all detail oriented, extremely professional and were wonderful through every aspect especially during the sale and through escrow and final close. We highly recommend you have James help you buy or sell your home. He can get the good done. Thank you James for everything!

We sold our home through James last year. Overall it was a pleasant experience. Yaz and his team were invaluable in getting the house ready for sale. They did repairs, staged and packed our belongings for us. A rarity for real estate services. Their marketing materials were high quality and photos very professionally done. Detailed orientated and responsible. James provided weekly updates which included market infor on neighborhood listings and sales.
He is honest and personable.
Would recommend him and his team to anyone to sell their home.

While purchasing a home in Pacific Grove I had a very good experience with James Shin and the rest of his organization. James was recommended to me by local people who had had a similar experience with him, and this was particlarly important to me because I do not live in the area, this will be a second home for me.
I was very pleased with my experience in his handling the research and compilation of comparable pricing models and their presentation to the seller, as the seller and his agent began discussions at a price higher than we were willing to offer. There was also a lot of research needed and document gathering required because of a complicated and lengthy approval process that the house had previously gone through, and James and his organization were very helpful in getting this accomplished.

Mr. James Shin is a very effective realtor. He evaluated the appearance and state of maintenance, and then rearranged the furniture in order to show its spaciousness and attractiveness. He made an excellent video walk-through presentation and even published a book for potential buyers to review. He worked extremely well with buyers realtors, and brought 3 offers to us in a relatively short time. He and his office were extremely quick to find possible adjustments to satisfy present code requirements and to make corrections without loss of time. He handles client's anxieties calmly.
The processing of offers, counteroffers and escrow were made as easy as possible through electronic review and signature programs.
We are pleased.

James Shin did an excellent job marketing our beach house property, and we closed escrow about ten weeks later. The property had been previously listed with another agent and firm who, during their year-long listing, gave us absolutely nothing to show for it. We are not novices in the real estate market; however, it had been decades since we had purchased or sold property. Many of the processes have changed in the interim, and James guided us through them in a very professional and knowledgeable manner. He is extremely hard working, very responsive, and remains cool, calm, and collected throughout the entire transaction. We highly recommend James. Kudos to the entire James Shin Team!

I interviewed James to find a buyer for my mountain property in October of 2013. James was very easy to talk to and was very dilligent, professional, and his follow up skills were excellent. I have worked with many realtors over the past years and James is first class.

My house went into contract in less then 30 days after listing with James and it had previously been on the market for more then 6 months with another realtor. The pre listing preparation and his approach and negotiating posture were key to a sucessful outcome.

I would highly recommend James

James actively searched for and found the right buyers for our home rather than waiting passively for buyers to come in, as most brokers generally do.
He skillfully coordinated the sale of our old home and purchase of our new home without a glitch and in a timely manner.
James and his team are extremely professional, thorough, responsive, honest, and of high integrity.
The best part of selling and buying our home was knowing that James and his team were in control, took away the stress and hassle out of the whole process.

Thanks so much James, Yas, and David!

Back in 2003, James helped us buy our first home. We didn't know what we were doing back then and James was very patient in guiding us through the process. The home had multiple offers, so James explained to us the negotiating process of offers and counter-offers. He helped us in coming up with a counter-offer that allowed us to get the house at a bargain.

Since that first purchase, he has helped us purchase three more properties. We keep going back to James because he is highly knowledgeable, incredibly hard working, and a genuine problem solver. He is calm and empathetic throughout the difficult times that occur during the purchase process. He listens to your concerns and desires before finding a solution. Above all, his best qualities are that he is honest, trustworthy, and a genuinely good person. I would recommend James to anyone who is interested in buying or selling properties.

James Shin (www.bayarea-estates.com) from Intero Real Estate has marketed my Carmel Bay View Property and I can honestly say that I never had a better Agent. My Carmel Property had been on the Market with another Realtor for over a year and inexplicably the previous agent was not able to close the deal. James Shin presented a high class offering of my property that even included a printed book. James is very knowledgeable and presented true professionalism throughout all dealings. I value the most that whatever concern or question I had, James responded the same day within a very short time. I never had that kind of response from other Realtors before.
I can highly recommend James Shin and his professional team and continue to have him as my Real Estate Agent for property I plan to acquire in the near future. W.H.S.

Buyer & Seller
We have both purchased and sold a house with James as our agent and we were EXTREMELY happy with his services. Everything was very clear, easy to understand and he made us feel comfortable with what can often be a nerve wracking experience. He did what he needed to do to get both purchases done with minimal disruption to our lives.

We highly recommend James for any purchase or sale!
