"We first hired James as our Real Estate agent in early 2013 in order to market our 3 bedroom condo at Crystal Point in Jersey City. James was very helpful from the very beginning. Since the price we wanted for our property was at the high end of the market, it was not easy to locate the ideal interested parties. With James’ continuous hard-work and his professional handling of the situation, he was able to obtain a record high value for our property that left both sides of the transaction very satisfied. James is quick to respond to all requests and questions - you simply cannot find a more responsive or effective Real Estate agent. He skillfully assisted all parties with property management related issues, finding contractors to do all sorts of home maintenance and repair jobs, obtaining property management permission when applicable and more! Then, in early 2014, we hired James a second time and once again he was able to obtain a record high value for our property that left all parties involved very satisfied yet again. We are grateful that James has been such a great real-estate agent for us. He has indeed made our lives much easier. I highly recommend him.” - Yuan C., Vice President at BNP Paribas
"James Davis is a highly professional, competent and determined real estate agent who does not shy away from a challenge. I enlisted James’ assistance in renting out my condominium and he did an exceptional job. I was an extremely demanding client and I presented James with an extremely difficult/rigid list of parameters, criteria and special requests. James gladly and promptly addressed all of my questions, requests, requirements and concerns with the utmost courteousness and professionalism. He was also able to generate multiple rental offers within a very short period of time and was ultimately able to find a renter who was willing to pay the exact amount of rent that I was requesting. I fully intend to use James for any/all of my future real estate-related needs and am pleased to recommend him to anyone who is looking to rent, buy, sell or lease a property within the state of New Jersey." - Timothy H. - Director, Specialty Panels & Recruiting at Schlesinger Associates
"Jim is great to work with. He’s not pushy, listens well, and is open to working with one’s needs as they keep shifting and changing during the home buying process. It was our first home purchase, and Jim was very responsive and prompt in all our dealings with him. He kept showing us places that corresponded to our every narrowing criteria - or should I say expanding criteria. After looking at many condos and apartments, we finally had a list of what is absolutely non-negotiable in our desired home, and Jim helped us find it. I recommend Jim very highly!" Sujay S. - NYC Education and Mihaela E. - Goldman Sachs
"It’s been a great experience working with James, both prior to purchasing and then when renting my investment property. He has a strong work ethic and high integrity. He has a great sense of the market which enabled me to rent my investment property while obtaining excellent results. One thing that stands out about James is his proactive approach and willingness to be available for a discussion at short notice" - Ashish S., Head of Loan Syndications - Asia Pacific, Credit Suisse
"Thanks for being so efficient! I’m impressed! Thanks again for your speedy work for making this happen for all parties. Good job!” - David H., David Huang Design Inc., NYC
"As first time home buyers, my fiancée and I thoroughly appreciated Jim’s insight, guidance, and determination in finding the perfect place to call our own. He was very friendly and professional at all times and was with us every step of the way. He was flexible enough to work with us on our tight schedules, was very attentive to our needs, and addressed all of our concerns whenever they arose. Jim’s familiarity with the area proved extremely useful in narrowing down our search and his tenacity helped when making an offer - Jim was absolutely indispensable during our search for a property in Jersey City." – Mike L., Industrial Designer at Protocol NY
"I hired Jim twice and he delivered twice. He’s a pleasure to work with, he always looks out for his clients best interests, and he negotiated hard for us. I fully recommend." – Paulo L., IT Cosmetics
"Its been a great experience working with Jim during our house hunt. He was always on top of things, keeping a tab on all new listings, talking to other agents and finding properties which matched our requirements. He has a great work ethic and high integrity. He has a great sense of the market trends which helped us a lot during our search in a volatile housing market. He is very patient and perseveres even if a deal doesn’t seem to be working out. He doesn’t leave any stone unturned and tries everything out to make it work. One thing we liked most about Jim is that he takes a proactive approach and keeps talking to all the parties in any deal. He always kept us abreast with the situation and gave great advice at every turn. At the end we got a great deal, a great house to call home and a big thanks goes to Jim for all his efforts. Top qualities: Great Results, On Time." - Kaushal K.
“I met James Davis soon after I was referred to him and told that he was the most knowledgeable Real Estate Salesperson for Crystal Point. I later found that to be true as he lives at and owns in Crystal Point and that he covers the entire Jersey City and Hoboken waterfront areas. As a first time home buyer, everything about the process of buying a home was very new to me. After I called and met with James, he took the time to explain everything to me. He answered all of my questions and did so in a manner that revealed how knowledgeable he was of the process of buying real estate. As Jim and I began looking at condos for sale around the Jersey City waterfront, starting with Crystal Point and moving onto other luxury condo buildings (77 Hudson, The "A", Liberty Terrace, etc), Jim proved to be an analytical thinker who was quick to identify good opportunities and winning strategies for how we could secure a property at a good price. He was always a step ahead by anticipating any potential problems and having a plan for resolving possible issues. His advice was always well thought out, concise and on target. He pays attention to details and makes sure that customer is always satisfied. Jim was more professional, personable and comprehensive than any Real Estate Salesperson that I have ever dealt with before." – Alex S.
"My husband and I had the great pleasure of working with Jim to find high quality and high value properties for sale in the Jersey City/Hoboken areas. Jim is one of the best real estate professionals we have met. The moment we met him we knew we wanted to work just with him. It was a pleasure to deal with such an intelligent and concerned individual. He worked very hard to help us and was extremely responsive, professional, and pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Jim to anyone in the metro area interested in renting or purchasing high quality real estate." – Cora L.
“I recently had the pleasure of working with James Davis while searching for an apartment in the Jersey City/ Hoboken area. James was an expert in the area we were searching and is very personable and professional in the way he conducts his real estate sales. I highly recommend James Davis to assist you in all of your future real estate needs.” – Jacqueline M.
“My wife and I had the great pleasure of working with Jim to find high quality and high value rental properties in the NYC/NJ metro area. Jim is one of the best real estate professionals I have every met. He worked very hard to help us and was super responsive, professional, and pleasure to work with.
