I have used Terry James on 10 different occasions. It is one thing to be a realtor. It is another thing to be an advisor. Terry does a great job with the task at hand but he takes a sincere interest in what is best for the client. Both on the selling and buying side, he always puts the client first. Lastly, Terry has a background in financial advising so his ability to help clients think about real estate in the overall picture of their net worth and long term goals is a huge added benefit. I would highly recommend Terry and his team when you are looking for a true advisor.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you again for your hardwork and seamless execution in our most recent real estate purchase. You were instrumental in negotiating on our behalf as the purchasing agent. You outlined a series of steps that you felt would lead to the acceptance of our offer and were able to execute a price and terms that immensely favored our interests. I was particularly impressed with how your team and you were able to navigate the most difficult credit market in decades to shepherd our super jumbo loan from underwriting to signing. As you have served us and our colleagues in numerous successful transactions over the years, I wanted you to know how much we appreciate your professionalism and uniquely comprehensive real estate advisory services.

I have worked with Terry personally and professionally for the last seven years. During this time I have purchased and sold three different investment properties in the greater Seattle/Eastside based on his expertise and advice. His dedication to the clients goals and needs is uncompromising and he is a master negotiator. He is very truthful about the realities of the real estate market and what you can expect. On two of the homes, he was able to negotiate a purchase price lower than the listing price even though there were multiple offers on the properties. The most recent investment property in Greenlake was purchased for $410k and sold the same year for $760k after an extensive remodel. I highly recommend Terry and his team to anyone who wants to buy or sell real estate in the greater Seattle/Eastside markets.
Terry was referred to us by a friend who highly recommended him. In working with him, we were impressed with Terry’s energy, genuineness, knowledge in real estate, meticulousness in the details regarding meeting our needs, and participation in community service. Always fun to talk to, he is positive, enthusiastic, very pleasant, and just a really nice guy. He was so patient with us as we became frustrated during the short sale process and even provided much needed expertise in lease law and renegotiating terms of a lease (since a tenant was part of the deal). He loves what he does and it was so evident every time we met with him. We highly recommend him and have already done so.
