His most recent sales have been from Chula Vista to Laguna Niguel and many places in between including La Jolla, Downtown San Diego, Rancho Santa Fe, Scripps Ranch and Carlsbad. Here is what Jim’s most recent client said about her experience working with Jim to sell her parent's home: 'During the course of the preparation of the house for the listing, dealing with offers, counter proposals and escrow, I was reassured regularly that I had made the right choice in selecting Jim Kellogg. It was critical to me especially since I live far away that I be able to trust the agent to manage the preparations effectively and professionally, anticipate issues, and work diligently for the best interest of the sale. Jim kept me informed every step of the way, was able to make recommendations for service providers, and liaised between me and the rental property managers and escrow company. I made one trip to Carlsbad to review the property before the listing went 'live' - Jim met with me and reviewed all my concerns and addressed each one as requested.' 'I have no reservations or hesitation to recommend Jim to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. He is an experienced professional with deep knowledge of the area and process. It was an easy process for me, largely due to Jim's efforts. Thank you for your fabulous work!' --Pamela O, San Francisco This transaction required a hands-on effort on Jim’s part as Jim had to coordinate numerous aspects of readying the property for the market, from providing his client bids from multiple contractors to overseeing the pre-listing work. “After a transaction closes and a client evaluates my performance, I believe they always find me to be experienced, knowledgeable, trustworthy and accountable, and never regret choosing me to represent them in the transaction”.
