I found Brian James on Zillow after requesting more info on a particular house that looked interesting. I explaining my situation (which included a low down payment and a low credit score) Brian put me in contact with a mortgage broker he thought could help. Sure enough we where pre approved and could start aggressively house hunting. That was one of the happiest days of my life. House hunting was my favorite part of the process and Brian made it easy. He was attentive to our specifications, would take us to look at houses on the weekends and after normal hours. When we had questions or needed to contact him he was more then accessible. I was not looking forward to spending time with a ?salesman? (I can?t stand phony, pushy people) but Brian wasn?t like that at all. Down to earth, friendly, caring and dedicated he was a pleasure to work with. After finding the house we wanted the unpleasant process of finding a lender commenced. Long story short it was a stressful, ridicules mess. Brian had our back the whole way and even voluntarily forfeited some of his commission to help us. Our situation was not the norm but I?m so glad Brian was our agent; we would have been lost without him. Less ... More

Brian James is the best real estate agent in the Eugene/Springfield area. I was living in Phoenix and called Brian and asked him to show me a variety of houses in the area. I flew into Springfield and Brian dedicated that weekend to showing me houses. He was informative about the area and had many good suggestions. At the end of the weekend I made a decision on a particular house and Brian took it from there. I flew back to Phoenix and Brian took care of everything. He kept me well informed about the progress, sent me all the necessary forms that needed to be signed and ran many chores that went above and beyond his job. He was professional in every capacity and made sure there were no surprises. I had to have extra inspections and Brian arranged everything. I highly recommend Brian to anyone wanting to purchase a home in this area. Less ... More

Brian James while representing us as we were selling our property in Veneta , ore, Was always on top of the market, well informed, and kept us up to date on all that was going on with our property, and the market. He was a very professional realtor, and I would recommend him to anyone wanting a responsible person to help them and keep them in the loop. We are keeping in touch with him, while slowly looking for another piece of property in the future. thanks. Pat Hargrove.

I was very pleased with the pricing and marketing of my property. Brian priced it just right so that we were able to get serious offers right away that led to a sale within a couple of months (including all of the closing), certainly a very reasonable time period. The property was not an easy property to sell because it had some structural defects. Brian highlighted its attractive features with excellent photos and advertising and made good suggestions on how to make property attractive He guided me with through the process of deciding what repairs to make and getting qualified people to complete the repairs. He was a top-notch salesman for this property and was always available and prompt. I was very happy with the results. Less ... More

Conscientious, hard working, persistant. What more could you ask for? We would highly recommend Brian. We interviewed several realtors before we listed our home. Previously, one week earlier, we had listed our home on Zillow. We personally saw how Brian went out of his way to help his clients find the perfect home. He contacted us about our home when he saw our Zillow listing. Our home looked like it might fit his clients needs. Unfortunately, after viewing our home, his client chose another home to purchase. We decided to hire Brian as our realtor. Several weeks later our home was 'Pending'. Obviously we are pleased with our choice of Brian James to help us sell our home and the results of this choice.

Brian James was extremely helpful in our search for a new home. He listened carefully to what we were looking for. He did not waste our time looking at houses that did not fit our priorities. He was quick to answer our calls or emails immediately or with in minutes. He let us know when new listings came up and the perfect house we purchased was on the market one day. Brian was always professional in every way. Lots of questions came up on our search. If Brian did not know the answer already, he researched and quickly had the answer. The closing of our new home went smoothly due to the expertise and knowledge that Brian has in Real Estate. We will refer Brian to anyone that is looking to purchase or sell their home. We will be listing our home that we moved out of. Thank you Brian! Less ... More

I so enjoyed working with Brian on the sale of my home. He certainly went above and beyond to market and show the property. His professionalism and expertise were much appreciated. I would without hesitation recommend him to my friends and colleagues for any and all real estate dealings whether buying or selling. 1031 tax free exchanges etc- residential or business. Thanks Brian- job well done. Daryl Cross

I have been considering the possibility of downsizing for quite some time but it was a hard decision to make. A friend referred me to Brian James and said I should just talk to him and see what options were out there. Brian was so helpful in every step of the way, and understood what a difficult transition this can be. He was always so patient even though I was constantly changing the criteria I was looking for. I found him to be extremely knowledgeable with the Eugene/Springfield area and I certainly welcomed his expertise in the Real Estate market. In this tough real estate climate, Brian helped me to realize the maximum selling potential of my home with his aggressive marketing and knowledge of the real estate market while helping me to capitalize on my buying power in finding a new home. Although I do not intend to purchase additional real estate in the future, without reservation I will recommend Brian James to all my friends and family who need a real estate professional. Less ...

Brian was very responsive, having selected about 20 houses to consider after talking to me about what I was looking for in a house. He was very patient and thorough sifting through the material and some more that I presented to find a short list of high priority houses. He made contact with Realtors and owners to gain access for viewing the houses and shared my enthusiasm is viewing selected houses. Although he presented a lot of choices, he was critical in helping me focus on my choices, not what he thought I wanted, but what I said I wanted. He never appeared to be pushy or in a hurry, we always took our time in a very well practiced approach to look, gather information and evaluate. He guided me through the process in a way that made this experience and easy and successful buying experience. His recommendation for an initial offer was very insightful and the counter offer was very close to my offer. His guidance and advice in evaluating the particulars was comprehensive and directly useful for an assessment of the house. I would recommend Brian without reservations as an agent that is pleasant to work with and he can get the job done. Less ... More

My wife and I have worked with Brian over the past several months and have been incredibly impressed with this professionalism and incredible work ethic. We first were looking for a new home to help with better access for our disabled mother that lives with us. Brian went far beyond what a typical agent would do and found us a wonderful home that with very few modifications works perfectly. We recently listed our original home with Brian and had an acceptable offer made within just two weeks of the listing! We would highly recommend Brian if you want an excellent agent that listens to you needs and provides great options. Less ... More

We are local rental owners and have talked with Brian extensively about investment property as well as 1031 exchanges. We've found him to be knowledgeable of the local market, quickly returns our phone calls and is respectful always of our interests. We highly recommend Brian for either residential or investment properties.

My family is relocating to Eugene, Oregon. Based on a very favorable referral I got from a real estate agent in my home state of Iowa, I gave Brain James a call. I have found his expertise in the real estate market to be invaluable in this transition process. He has been willing to go the extra mile in helping us look for both the perfect house to call our home and investment properties in the area. Relocating is a very trying process, but Brian has been willing to do the leg work for us and help in any way he can to make this transition a very positive one. Thank you Brian James. I will continue to use Brian for his expertise and helpfulness in all my future real estate needs. Less ... More

Listed home, but didn't sell
What I like best about Brian is that I can be completely honest with him. Even if I have questions about his qualifications or recommendations, I can ask him and he answers thoughtfully and without defensiveness. His attitude increases my confidence in him. He has worked hard to sell my house and he has worked hard to find my next property - even when I change what I'm looking for every few weeks. He covers all the bases such as getting the house staged, referring me to a professional to get myself pre-approved for a purchase. My home has not sold yet, but I will stick with Brian for as long as it is on the market. Less ... More
