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.

In a sometimes muddy and unclear market the James Real Estate Group makes the process of buying, renovating, and leasing residential properties easy to understand. Taking the time to provide as much information necessary to make us feel comfortable as clients.

I have taken several real estate investing seminars, after which the promoters simply left town. Follow-up help, if available, came with a hefty price and was via phone only. I also found a few local groups which again were long on information but little to no practical help. I became skeptical. Then I found Terry James and his team on Meetup.com. From the outset Terry eloquently described local market dynamics and what it took to be a successful investor. Terry’s integrity was apparent when, in a meeting, he told a retiree that investing here entire $10,000 nest egg in real estate was an inappropriate risk. Setting a higher standard than the other groups, Terry had assembled a team of professionals necessary for a successful real estate investment. Whether a first-timer like myself or a seasoned investor, you will find it beneficial in working with Terry. For future projects, Terry and his team will be my first choice.
