“Jim and Irene were very knowledgeable about the property that was listed as well as finding out the values of the properties around it. They were very professional and punctual when working with us. I especially enjoyed their quick responses to our emails and phone calls. We would highly recommend Jim and Irene in any real estate transaction. They quickly sold our $6,400,000 home with four offers to choose from.”

– Mr. & Mrs. John Rudl

“If you are looking for a professional real estate agent, we highly recommend Irene and Jim of Coldwell Banker Realty. From our first meeting, we appreciated Irene and Jim’s enthusiasm, communication style and expert advice when listing our condominium. Irene and Jim’s guidance on photography and listing details really showcased our property, and we enjoyed multiple offers over a few weeks’ time. Most important, our unit sold quickly and at the right price.”

– Ben Milikowsky

“Irene and Jim’s knowledge and advice have been invaluable to me. They seem to know what I need before I do! They had my last property sold two hours after it hit the multiple listing service! Between the two of them, I find every problem’s solution and every truly outstanding deal. I wouldn’t make a move without them.”

– Edward Agar

“Thanks to Jim and Irene, our whole dreaded moving process was a great success. They sold our original home so quickly and found us the perfect new one. They even went so far as to personally find a great new home for our family dog! They helped us every step of the way and prevented a lot of heartache for us, since our wonderful new condo did not allow pets.”

– Mark & Kathleen Shedd

“We first asked Jim and Irene to sell our home in Julian, which they did very successfully in a slow market. Three years later, we asked them to sell our home in Carmel Valley as we were moving to London for a few years. Both transactions were handled smoothly and efficiently. Our kudos to them.”

–  Jim Mercer & Shannon McClure

“I can’t thank you enough for selling my condo. After having two different agents representing me and it being on the market for over a year, I was fortunate enough to have someone recommend you. You told me exactly what to do to stage it properly, and it sold within 30 days. Thank you and Irene for doing a splendid job. I would highly recommend you to many of my friends.”

– Cathy Navaro

After interviewing three realtors, I decided that Jim and Irene were the right professionals for my job.  Their marketing strategy was outstanding. Above and beyond does not begin to express the service Jim and Irene provide for their clients.
