...Jim found the perfect home for us and brought us a buyer for our townhouse before it was even listed. I have recommended Jim to others and appreciate his attention to all the details. Jim hired a professional organizer and helped us decorate our daughter's bedrooms and helped us to remove unnecessary furniture and items to help our home look more spacious and appealing. I could go on and on with all the extra things Jim does for his clients . For me the emotional support you can't put a price tag on.Joni Augsburger
...every request I ever made of you, you came through and then some. I have to say that I was a little overwhelmed but you guided me ever so carefully through the process of buying a home that I felt most of the anxiety just fall a way because I knew I could trust you and count on you for honest answers and sound advice. I would definitely be happy to do business with you again and I would very highly recommend you to any of my friends.Gloria Tucker
...you were not only professional to a fault, but caring, honest, and attentive to our needs and wants during the months leading up to the sale of our home. You are a breath of fresh air in the real estate business and we feel lucky to have worked with you. We will continue to recommend you to our friends and relatives and wish you continued success. Mike and Donna Doyle
...from the initial meeting through the time of closing, Jim Cheney proved to be both the consummate realtor professional as well as a trusted friend who did everything possible to keep us at ease, on track, and eventually extremely satisfied with the outcome of the sale and process. Jim created brochures and flyers unlike any others we had seen, even those from more recognizable agents. His use of digital photography to capture the very best aspects and amenities of our home were remarkable. Regarding his suggestion of an asking price, we were both amazed and skeptical. Jim's suggestion would mean setting the bar considerably higher. Once listed, we had multiple offers ranging from our asking price to $20,000 over. We truly could not have wished for a more attentive, knowledgeable, and professional agent. We cannot say enough about Jim's ability to sell real estate, and would direct any potential seller or buyer to utilize his unique talents.Leta Moe
Thanks Jim I appreciate all the work you put into this, you definitely earned your commission. Norbert Hertel
Jim really facilitated the sale of my Rincon Valley home while I was doing other things:
He coordinated appliance repair work, painting and hauling; arranged a handyman to install French doors and repair the deck; met with pest inspector twice to obtain a clear report; scheduled professional cleaning and window washing; found the perfect staging; held multiple open houses and much, much more....all while I was living and working in San Francisco! Also, his pleasant manner and confidence helped me stay calm throughout the rapid transition of repairing and upgrading to the final sale. I am forever grateful! Jenna Howell
Thank you for selling my mother's house. Living in Virginia, it would have been difficult for me to come out to California and deal with all the things that needed to be done.
I appreciate your advice and your help obtaining the structure, roof, sewer, and pest inspections. I was really impressed by your willingness and ability to orchestrate the carpet replacement, tile floor care, house cleaning, ceiling repair, staging, refuse removal, and yard maintenance prior to and during the listing period. Thank you for staying in contact with the attorney handling my mother estate and for keeping me informed. I did not realize how easy it would be to handle all the sales paper work via email.
The color brochures you made showed the house off beautifully. The cleverly worded classified ads you ran in the S.F. Chronicle and Palo Alto Weekly made me miss my old home. I know that all your hard work significantly contributed to receiving our offer within 10 days of the listing for $300,000 over the appraised value of the house!! I would recommend you to anybody who is considering selling a home. It was a pleasure working with you. Cathy Curtis
