Once again this year we have worked with Jim Garcia on both a condo purchase and a condo sale. The real estate market here in CO has become a difficult challenge mostly to buyers. We truly believe that had we not used Jim as our real estate professional, we most likely would not have successfully purchased our condo and at a fair market price as well. He was able to negotiate an offer (without us having to offer tens of thousands over asking price) and get us under contract within the first day of coming on the market, which is no easy challenge. This was a most difficult transaction also because we were not told until days later by the seller's realtor that there were major complications due to pending bankruptcy proceedings which delayed the process substantially. Jim was able to communicate with ease with the court system and relay information to us in a timely matter. Our property recently sold by Jim was also a very trying process due to the buyer's lender delays. Again, we had two offers the first few days on the market and closed about 5 weeks later. We have learned through these two processes how important it is to have a realtor that has excellent negotiating/communication skills, and strives to keep ethical values as well. There were problems as stated in both transactions, and much of it had to do with the other realtor not being forthright with information, or advising their clients to make an offer that they were clearly not going to follow through with. During both transactions, Jim has been patient, always putting our best interests first. He kept the communication lines open every step of the way and when we did call or ask a question he returned our call promptly. Jim is also very well versed with local issues and has been helpful with local references such as handymen, landscapers, etc. He is very knowledgeable with the various school systems in Douglas County. Needless to say, we recommend Jim Garcia for all of your real estate needs.

Met Jim in December re selling my condo in Aurora and buying a home in Parker/Castle Rock. Condo sold immediately. Jim's team, the photographer and stager, were incredible! Jim always has immediate response to contact and is very knowledgeable of all aspects of buying/selling, ie knows his people, territory, real estate rules and regulations, etc. I've relocated a lot in the last 15 years in California, Texas and now Colorado and find Jim to be the best. Integrity is a rare commodity these days.

When it came time to buy a new home, I wanted a local agent who would listen to my needs and help me find a home that satisfied those needs. Jim Garcia did just that. He is a consummate professional with a friendly no nonsense manner. I felt that the advice I was given during the search was based on his years of experience as well as a desire to see me in a home that I would be happy to own. I would highly recommend Jim.

Spend a few minutes talking to Jim Garcia and you know you've found your realtor. You won't find anyone better. He's extremely market savvy, strategically sharp, up on the details and, as a bonus, maintains a sense of humor throughout the process.

Jim was great. We spent a fair amount of time looking for the right house and Jim never pushed or acted like we were wasting time. He knows the area extremely well and is very knowledgeable about houses such as pointing out why a house isn't a good bargain and how easy or difficult it may be to sell. He's an excellent negotiator and will tell you if the list price is good. He also has a number of people he can call for all the services you'll need after you sign a contract and after you close. The day we closed he set up an appointment to have the carpets cleaned the next day and at half the price of the other carpet cleaning services.

Jim Garcia was fantastic. He made the whole buying experience simple and stress free. He was of great assistance throughout the whole process and I would highly recommend his services. Its the small things that make the real difference and he was extremely detailed and thorough. He is the best real estate professional I have worked with.

Jim did a great job selling our house. He made recommendations about what items needed to be fixed up before we listed it, how to stage it so it looked it’s best, and knew how to negotiate top dollar for us. He worked with us for about a month before we listed it to make sure our house was ready to go before we listed it.
We ran into a few problems along the way. We trusted Jim to give us the right answers. And he did. In the end, we ended up with an excellent price. More importantly, Jim was there every step of the way to help us understand what was going on and advise us on what to do. My wife and I are extremely glad that we picked Jim. He is THE most knowledgeable Real Estate Agent I have ever met.

We really enjoyed working with Jim. He was extremely knowledgeable and experienced. From our first meeting on it was clear he knew what he was doing and wanted to do what was best for us. He got us an extremely great offer on our house and it went smoothly without any delays. We have already recommended Jim to our family and would recommend him to anyone who needed a realtor!

Jim did a great job of positioning our house for sale including proper staging and pricing. Sold the house in two weeks for close to full price (needed a paint job which I paid for). Able to address the myriad of issues that come up between listing, showings, offers, inspection and closing. I would recommend Jim to anyone looking to buy or sell a house in the Castle Rock market as it has it's own unique challenges that he is able to address.

Jim was great! He went above and beyond to make time for us. His response was almost always immediate. As a first time home buyer, he made the experience as smooth as possible. He made great suggestions and recommendations, was aware of the market trends, and always had our best interest in mind during our home purchase.

I highly and wholeheartedly recommend Jim Garcia as a realtor. From day one, I felt he was 100% on our side and looking out for us, particularly from a legal perspective. This was a huge comfort, considering the multiple pages of legal contract we were signing. Jim walked through the home with us, and pointed out issues and questioned things that we would have missed. I recommend him to anyone and would hire him again in a heartbeat!

Jim Garcia was terrific to work with on my recent Castle Rock home buying experience. He was patient as I had very specific things I was looking for that led to a lot of house viewings - but I found the right house. Jim's previous construction background helped to eliminate several houses that had structural issues, maintenance concerns, and poorly completed "do it yourself" home finishing projects - this was extremely helpful! Lastly, he has a strong knowledge of Castle Rock and the various neighborhoods pros and cons. Overall, a great guy to work with!

I found Jim Garcia on-line and wow did I ever make a great choice! I have been working with Jim for over two years to find the perfect home for us. Jim showed me every home that I wanted to see, and he never ran out of patience. There were times when I was ready to compromise and buy a house that was not everything we wanted, but Jim encouraged me to hang in there! Then along came the perfect home. I am so very grateful that Jim encouraged me to wait. We met every item on our "wish list" and closed today on our dream home. Jim is not only extremely knowledgeable in real estate, but has a background in construction as well. This proved quite valuable when assessing houses for structural problems and the costs associated with them. Anyone working with Jim will have an expert working for them, and will also have an enjoyable process. I cannot recommend Jim Garcia too highly. Lori and Dale

Jim is a superb advocate for a buyer in all aspects of the process. He synthesizes the buyers needs and interests in such a way that time is not wasted in looking at "uninteresting" properties. He has an excellent source of skilled experts available to assess and evaluate property conditions and estimate potential costs involved for potential repairs/modification, as necessary/appropriate. He was extremely responsive to our calls, regardless of of time and/or nature of request. Jim is our real estate guy.

I've worked with Jim Garcia for many years; he is the best, so knowledgeable and consistent with excellent results. He is a huge resource to his clients from beginning to close. Jim is a first class Realtor who is driven to always provide the highest level of service with honesty and integrity.

Jim is one of the hardest working realtors I've meet. He listens to your wants and needs and goes out of his way to find you a home. When looking at homes he is straight up on whats good about the home and what you need to say no to. When it comes to negotiations....He's the best. He will get you the best deal in any type of market.

Over the past two years we have worked with Jim Garcia on both a condo purchase for investment purposes (he's extremely well-versed on investment properties) and just recently on the successful sale of our home. Both times Jim has been patient, always putting our best interests first. He kept the communication lines open every step of the way and when we did call or ask a question he returned our call promptly. He is an expert on the negotiation process as well as being very well versed with local issues and has been helpful with local references such as handymen, landscapers, etc. He is very knowledgeable with the various school systems in Douglas County. Needless to say we will definitely be using him for any future real estate transactions.

I honestly can't say enough wonderful things about working with Jim. We were in a difficult situation in which we needed to relocate from the east coast and purchase a home in a very competitive market with a short period of time. We were only able to meet with Jim for a little over an hour before trusting him to do a lot of leg work for us while my husband travelled back and forth. Jim worked tirelessly to check out houses both with and without my husband to determine listings that would be a good fit for our future home. The process of buying our new home became a bit more complicated as we went through the contract period. Jim was in constant contact with us and went above and beyond to make sure that everything worked out in our favor. We truly could not have survived this process and gotten into the wonderful home we did without a realtor like Jim on our side.
From start to finish, Jim's expertise was absolutely invaluable. Throughout the process he was able to provide outstanding recommendations for everything we needed. From the mortgage broker to the team of inspectors the professionals recommended by Jim have been absolutely fantastic and true experts in their field. For anyone looking for an exceptional realtor in the Castle Rock/Parker area, look no further than Jim Garcia.

Working with Jim has been a great experience! Jim is very knowledgeable in all aspects of Real Estate and is also very willing to share his experiences.

Jim helped me list and sell my townhome and provided the best service I've ever received from a real estate agent. And I've bought and sold homes in 3 states. He provided a top-quality stager that made my home look fantastic. I needed a few pre-sale repairs and he quickly lined up several reasonably-priced providers who were easy to work with and did great work. He was always available to answer questions and handle bumps in the road as they arose. I'd recommend him to anyone without hesitation.

I had the extreme pleasure to work with Jim Garcia in the Colorado real estate market. He is a true professional and that is evident when working with him. He is very passionate about the real estate industry and I can see why he is treated with the utmost respect. He really knows his stuff and his clients, along all others involved in a transaction will benefit from his expertise. I highly recommend Jim when you need to buy/sell your home in the Castle Rock, Castle Pines and Parker neighborhoods. You won't regret it.

We had such an incredible experience working with Jim. His knowledge about the market, assertive sales approach and active communication skills with myself and my husband made the entire experience quick and profitable. Our house was marketed so well with staging (arranged by Jim), online marketing (done by Jim), and plentiful signage (all put in by Jim) that our house was only listed for four days and we were able to pick our best offer. It was a great experience and I would highly recommend for any seller or buyer to look Jim Garcia up if they are needing a GREAT realtor!!

We did not need to sell our home but did want to sell and start downsizing so that we could retire to family property in Henderson, NV. We were hoping for the ultimate in "sweetheart deals" and Jim helped us find one.
We sold our home for a fair price to an investor and are still living in it for another year. Jim's buyer signed a lease agreement with us for a one year period the same day we closed on the sale. We are able to have one less thing in our lives, the home ownership, and have ample time to continue to weed out, sell and giveaway 25 years of things that are simply no longer necessary.
Jim did such a great job, we gave him our tickets to the Broncos-Patriots game this fall.
