We had a chance to work with Jamie will looking at properties in Davis, CA. Since we are from North Carolina, her knowledge of the neighborhoods, school districts and city ordinances were invaluable. Most importantly, she always had our best interest in mind and never tried to push any properties on us...in fact, she often recommended we wait on a property to find the one that best met our needs. I would highly recommend working with Jamie since she has high integrity, a warm heart and fun personality. Less ... More

My wife and I recently had the opportunity to talk with Jamie Madison about real estate in Davis, California. I can say with certainty that Jamie is the most helpful, sincere, honest, and straight forward real estate person we have ever encountered. She deeply cares about people and helping them find their way to a home that they like; no pressure, all class. She is a good listener, and she understands why certain situations may work best. She even helped us evaluate and write an offer for a ?sale-by-owner? property. If you look at real estate in Davis, don?t just walk to Jamie?s office?run. You will be glad that you did. Less ... More

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
I'm an agent in Davis, and never have I seen a realtor go so above and beyond for a client. Usually we're in intricate part of the closing process because insurance is always required. Jamie recently had a cash only home purchase. In talking with her client after escrow closing, she found out that they had not put together home insurance for their new property. Instead of just recommending that they put something together, and maybe handing off a phone number, Jamie drove her client to sign up for the insurance they needed (sitting in our office for 45 minutes patiently while the client was helped). She went above and beyond as far as I'm concerned. I'd recommend her to anyone looking for a home in Davis. Less ... More

We were directed to Jamie early in our search in Davis due to her great reputation and found her true to form. She stuck with us through a long process, we required alot of patience and hand-holding, plus quite a bit of creativity -- yet Jamie never gave up working hard for us through nearly a year of work. She was there every step of the way. While we knew she worked hard for us during the search, she particularly turned it on during the closing period and managed the process beautifully through a smooth closing. We can't reccomend her enough and consider her a true friend at the end of the process. Less ... More

You will not find a more experienced, savvy, and smart agent than Jamie Madison in Davis or anywhere else. And, on top of that, she is a genuine pleasure to work with on all levels. Jamie helped us buy our house in El Macero when we moved there from DC, and then helped us sell it when we had an unanticipated move back due to a job change. When we found out about our move, we also learned we would have a very short time frame in which to sell our house. Immediately, Jamie made herself available to the extent that we felt as if we were her only client, when we knew that she was actually quite busy. She helped us talk through all the various scenarios and understand as best as we could what our likely outcomes were. Her knowledge of the local market and what was likely to be happening in the near future in the market was a huge benefit in our decision-making. Once we got the final word about our move, she listed our home for sale in literally a matter of 2 or 3 days, even managing to hold two open houses that first weekend. She confidently helped us prepare the house to be shown, and made it less of a burden on us in every way she could. She dedicated herself to being available to show the house and publicize it to other agents and buyers. She also responded almost immediately to every question or comment we had, whether small or large, helping us feel like things were always progressing. Most amazingly, even in a very scary market for sellers, we had multiple buyers who expressed serious interest, and a quick offer within a couple of weeks. We were able to finalize the sale within about a month from the time we listed the house, allowing us to move without having that hanging over us. Thanks to Jamie, a very stressful time turned out to be less stressful and have a great outcome. We can't recommend her highly enough! Less ... More

Both as buyers and sellers we have enjoyed the collaboration of perhaps a dozen excellent realtors. But Jamie deserves our very highest praise for her knowledge of the market and the whole process, her prompt and sage advice, and her understanding of human feeling. In short, we recommend her wholeheartedly and with utmost enthusiasm.

Jamie came well recommended -- and for good reason. She sold four homes in our neighborhood in quick succession (including ours); all sold for strong prices towards the top of the market range; all sold during a very difficult time for home sellers. You can rest assured that Jamie will go to every length to market your home to likely buyers, keep you well informed, respond quickly when you are trying to reach her, and will provide better overall service to you than any other agent in the area. Her insight and advice on the market are excellent and truthful -- she won't tell you something you want to hear just so she can get your business. She has a proven, sustained track record in all kinds of market conditions. In short, you won't find a better agent in Davis! I highly recommend Jamie Madison. Less ... More

Jamie helped us buy a home in Davis, while we were still living in NYC. Though it could have been an extremely difficult & confusing cross-country-process, Jamie made sure that our first-home buying experience was absolutely enjoyable and positive. She was always accessible via phone or email, even with the 3 hour time difference. Any question or concern, no matter how small, was ever left unanswered by Jamie. And upon arriving in Davis to view our new property, Jamie went out of her way to make me feel at home, immediately. She spent an entire afternoon taking me through town, showing me the shops, the different neighborhoods, the various elementary schools, the parks, bike trails, etc. All in all, I could not have dreamed up a more positive experience than the one my family & I got to have working with Jamie. Her real estate expertise is unarguable, but it is her overall enthusiasm and good-nature that make her a truly exceptional agent. We would recommend her above all else. Less ... More

While searching for investment properties in Davis, CA I utilized Jamie Madison's expertise and local insight for area selection and current/future valuation. Her skills at determining your needs, limitations and goals for acquisition are unparalleled. I recommend anyone searching the Yolo county area to speak with her first. You will not be disappointed!

Jamie Madison is the embodiment of warmth and professionalism. In September 2009, we were brand new to Davis, and were fortunate enough to see Jamie's engaging and informative website. She responded to our Sunday evening call promptly and arranged to show us the house we were interested in seeing first thing Monday morning. She was unquestionably the most welcoming, patient, and well-informed real estate agents we have worked with -- and as people who have moved often, we know many agents. At the same time, she became our loyal and tireless advocate. Discovering there were already 4 offers on the home we wanted, she flawlessly guided us through the steps necessary to make ours the winning offer. There is no question that without Jamie's superlative efforts, we would not be living in our wonderful home. Less ... More

Jamie was highly recommended to me by a friend (she helped her buy her 1st home ). As a first-time home buyer, Jamie's expertise of the local market and her warm/engaging personality made my search process very pleasant and stress-free. Jamie will go the extra mile for you, taking the time to educate you about the process and all the subtleties and nuances of buying a home (esp. the unique aspects of the Davis market). She has great feel and intuition for the type of home that will be a great match for you. I would highly recommend her to anyone searching for a home in the Davis/Sacramento area. She's an A+ agent!

There is no other agent one should work with if wanting to buy a house in Davis. With the competitive market and low inventory, it's important to have someone like Jamie walk with you through the process. No hint of buyers remorse 9 months after we bought our home.

Given the terrible state of the real estate market when we put our house on the market in April 2009 we would have to say our experience overall dealing with Jaimie was very satisfactory. She has a lot of energy and works tirelessly for her clients. That we put our house on the market and sold it some 7 months later, as we said, in a terrilbe market, speaks to Jaimie's tenacity in working to market her listings. We put our home on the market at a price that seemed reasonable at the time based on comps then currently for sale in our category. This price seemed all the more accurate when a comparable home on the next street brought in a quick offer not too much off their asking price. That offer eventually fell through and that event marked the beginning of readjustments to our price in a very tough real estate market. We quickly became aware that, while our home had some appealing features, there were also some huge negatives that were holding back the few potentially interested buyers. Jaimie tactfully made us aware of these drawbacks, realizing that she would not be serving us well if she withheld pertinent real time data, however negative that might be. We eventually found an asking price that brought a very good buiyer and we sold and moved on. Incidentally, there are homes that were on the market when ours was, that are still on the market, at prices that are from a different time, not soon to be replicated. A good realtor will work with clients to find a price that reflects not only clients' dreams but current market conditions. Jaimie is that sort of real estate agent. Less ... More
