“Jim, Thank you so very much for all of your assistance on the purchase of our new home in Carlsbad.  Jamie and I could not be any happier with the excellent professional service we have received from your team.  As you can imagine, it has been a bit daunting for us to relocate our family across the country, to an area that we are not familiar with.  You went above and beyond our expectations and made this process streamlined and so much less stressful for us.” 

“Thank you for taking the time and working with us over the past 8 months and showing us many homes and neighborhoods in the Carlsbad area, in addition to keeping us up to date with new listings via email.  Your expertise and knowledge of the Carlsbad area gave us confidence and reassurance that we were choosing the right area in Carlsbad to locate.  You gave us terrific guidance on how to negotiate on this home, especially given the multiple bidder situation and the very short time to make a decision to make an offer.  We definitely would not have been able to get in the game without the relationship you cultivated with the seller's realtor.”

“Thank you again for such excellent service!!  We really appreciate all that you have done to put us in our dream home.  We will whole heartedly recommend you and your team to anyone we know that is looking to move to Carlsbad.”

Seema and Jamie Swetlin


“Akiko and I would like to thank you sincerely for doing an excellent job of marketing and selling our home!   Before selecting you, I remember reading one of your references who said that although there are always some glitches in the process, you did a fine job in minimizing them.  In our case, I really don’t’ think anything could have gone much more smoothly.  Our home sold quickly, we received a fair market price and the transaction was smooth thanks to your behind the scenes efforts.”

“There are many things you did that distinguished you from your peers, like your comprehensive marketing program, follow-through, attention to detail, negotiating skills, etc. but one crucial service to highlight was your use of an interior decorator.  In a short amount of time, we were able to take our home from nice to warm, inviting and beautiful.  The designer’s input and your effort (and silk plants!) really made a difference!”

Ken and Akiko Johnson


"A heartfelt thank you goes out to Jim who recently represented us in the purchase of our dream home in Rancho Santa Fe. After showing us in detail the comparable listings and sold properties, he successfully negotiated a price $150,000 to $200,000 under the market indicators. Although none of our many real estate transactions over the years has been flawless, this was as close to perfection as we have had. Jim was there to answer every question, every minute of every day. There is no doubt that we will utilize Jim's services to sell this home and help us buy our next home down the road. Thanks Again!"

Mary and Bob Stetson


"Jim was superb in helping us understand all the issues related to the sale of our home. He was reliable and prompt with all aspects of the transaction. Jim's ability to honestly present all perspectives was a key factor in our satisfaction with his performance. Jim was very thorough in explaining the initial offer and the counter offers. We never felt he wasn't looking out for us. All components of our home sale were very well planned and executed including agent walk-throughs, open houses and escrow handling, etc. Jim is persistent, responsive, enthusiastic and has a very pleasant demeanor. We really enjoyed working with Jim."

Mike and Karen Muro


"We could not have been happier with our decision to use Jim Davey to sell our home. We got nothing but 100% professional service from him and his entire team. From start to finish, he took the time to walk us through each process step by step. The key factor to us from any service provider is timely, honest communication and feedback. Not a phone call or email was left unanswered, and every question was addressed with complete honesty. Jim's expertise in the local real estate market coupled with his background as an appraiser was critical to us. Under Jim's watch, our home sold in less than a week ... at our asking price. We've already recommended Jim to friends and family."

Jeff and Lisa Black


“Jim is a real pro and a pleasure to work with. His contracts were well written and clear and the transaction went very smoothly. Jim is very honest, ethical, professional, thorough and reliable. I strongly believe Jim Davey is an asset to the Prudential company and I look forward to our next transaction.”

Carolyn Graysen, Coldwell Banker Carlsbad


"Jim, thank you so much for the awesome job you did with my dad. It was such a pleasure to work with you and your assistant, Maria. You both are so good at what you do.”

”I will be sure to pass your name on first when anyone is looking for a good Realtor. My dad spoke highly of you. Even though he's 83 now, he still thinks of himself as being around 50 and he still makes comments that reveal how much he misses his real estate career years. He gave you the ultimate compliment when he said that if he were still in the business, he'd like to work with someone like you because you do things the way he used to. You'd have to know him to fully appreciate the depth of that compliment but it's a big one”.

”I wish you continued success and want to thank you for your help. I really appreciate the special effort you made with my dad.”

With gratitude, Mary Nero

"We were very happy with the way everything was handled by Jim in the recent sale of our home. He was very well organized, professional and friendly. If we had any questions, Jim was always available and always promptly returned our phone calls. He was a great Realtor to work with and we appreciated his honesty with both the positive and negative aspects of our home. I would definitely recommend Jim to my friends!"

“Marty and I wanted to thank you again for the excellent job you did marketing and selling our home at 7783 Corte Promenade. Each step of the process went smoothly. We're sure that your focus on the market analysis, as well as aggressive marketing with flyers, ads, Virtual Tour, Internet exposure and Broker's Open House, all helped to create the environment that caused the house to sell in less than a week at such a favorable price.”

”We appreciate your support and flexibility, as well as your responsiveness to such little details as watering the plants and taking out the trash while we were out of town. Good luck to you in all of your future endeavors. We certainly would recommend you to anyone we know who would like to buy or sell a home in the La Costa/Carlsbad area.”

Sincerely, Martin and Betsy Minkoff


”Dear Jim, I just wanted to take a moment to THANK YOU!!! for all you did to get my house ready for selling, putting it up for sale, getting it SOLD and most of all your hand holding patients with me. I am forever grateful! May God bless you and your family always!

“Jim was outstanding! He was professional, honest and ethical and my escrow closed with no problems. He had me set up on a Buyer's Hot Sheet program and kept me up to date daily on new properties that came on the market, often the first day they were listed, even before their signs were up! I would use Jim Davey again and I will highly recommend him to anyone I know that has a real estate need.”

JoAnne Gamelle


”Jim is by far the best and hardest working agent we have ever worked with! His knowledge of the area combined with his understanding of real estate and all aspects of the transaction made this an entirely smooth process. He is the only agent we've known who actually did everything he said he would do! I would refer Jim Davey to anyone I know for their real estate needs.”
