Jim recently helped us sell our parent's home. From our very first meeting with Jim, we felt comfortable with him. As first time sellers, he made us feel at ease and was very patient, always thoroughly answering all our questions, starting with our interview with him, right through the house closing. He was always available to assist us in what ever manner we needed him. Jim's knowledge of the area, market conditions, and negotiation strategy proved we made a good choice in having him represent us, and we would not hesitate to use him again in future real estate transactions.

im is a consummate professional. He knows his market area extremely well. He is responsive 24-7. He follows through on every detail. And he takes tremendous pride in his work. I would unequivocally recommend Jim to anyone who is looking to buy, sell or lease.

I want to thank Jim for all that he did to help me in the recent sale of the Kiowa building. As the executor of an estate, it was critical for me to maximize the value of the asset. Throughout our transaction, Jim consistently gave me all the information and guidance necessary for me to make the right decisions. His market evaluation and pricing strategy were invaluable, and obviously successful since they produced a surprising 19 offers, and his negotiating skills and marketing strategies produced both favorable escrow terms and a price significantly over our initial asking price, and a full 41% above our appraisal!! I also deeply appreciate Jim’s tireless work and effort, and constant attention to all of the details, from the start of the process, through escrow and even after the closing. I could not be more satisfied with the results or think of a better realtor to refer to my clients.

You're not going to find a better agent out there! Jim has been there and done that. His experience and knowledge of the West LA - Beverly Hills market is unmatched. Anyone can use the MLS to find a home, Jim found my home before it hit the MLS. That's where his local knowledge pays off your you. Finding the home is only halve the battle. When your deep into the escrow process and something major comes up. Jim experience and relationships turn it into a minor issue. He solves problems! So you don't have any.

I just completed the last actions to close up my mothers' estate, and it reminded me how instrumental you were in settling the estate is a very successful way. Your invaluable help in selling my mothers' home in Mandeville Canyon, for very near the top of the estimates you accumulated from other agents familiar with the area, was very timely. We had to pay estate taxes within nine months of my mothers' death, and, had the house not sold, we would have had to liquidate securities, most at a loss, to pay the taxes. Also, the timing, admittedly a bit of luck, was perfect, as the residential market plunged the following year. Nevertheless, I attribute the quick sale to you correctly pricing the property, and using your network of contacts to get an immediate buyer. Because of this, we were spared the ordeal of open houses, and lengthy negotiations during a sad and sensitive time. I appreciate the highly professional work you did, and have since recommended you to others. Your professionalism and high ethical standards should ensure success, even in this dismal market. If a potential new client would like to talk to me about my experiences working with you, I would be delighted to speak with them.

Moving halfway across the country is disconcerting even if one is a seasoned executive. I was fortunately referred to Jim, a man who listened to my views, understood my economics, and tolerated my foibles. He gave solid advice upon location, price, and amenities. In a town where image is often more important substance, Jim focused upon the realities of real estate, not its fluff. When I decided that a relocation would better fit my needs. He handled both sides of the trade. Not only did he find the appropriate spot in the right location, but also he gave wise counsel on the sale of existing sight. In the local market that is noted for being flighty, Jim is solid. He is a professional in the best sense of the word.

Jim Bremner is an excellent real estate agent. He is very professional and also personable. Jim's knowledge and guidance was superior and his guidance helped us prepare to sell and then to sell our home in the right way with excellent strategies where we had multiple offers and people over bidding one another with an accepted offer within the first week of listing our property. His guidance also helped us choose a buyer that was able to close escrow quickly and his negotiations helped us get what we wanted including a lease back. I highly recommend this agent. He is honest and smart. I wouldn't be spending time writing this review if I wasn't completely satisfied with the work he did for me.
