More about James Maxwell
I am a Southern California Native. I grew up in Long Beach before moving to West Hollywood, The Hollywood Hills, LA (in the Melrose Area), and now Los Feliz. I have sold real estate in Los Angeles and San Francisco and have many tips on how to obtain the best possible outcome whether you are buying or selling. 14 years of real estate experience and over $260,000,000 in sales. I have negotiated hundreds of contracts. Whether you are selling/exchanging investment property or looking for your home, your goals become mine and we will get it done! Here are just some of the things I can help with:
Find Your Next Property
You need someone who knows the area and how to win. Los Angeles is a very rapidly moving real estate market. In 14 years of selling residential real estate, I have developed successful strategies for getting your offer accepted.
Sell a Home
When it's time to sell, you need someone who will advise you on pricing your property, use creative advertising techniques, meet & qualify prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange or vet a buyer's financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
Advice on Investment Property
Do you understand Rent Control, Costa-Hawkins and the Ellis Act? How about Cap rate and GRM? I do. I have owned rental property since 1995. I currently own income property in Long Beach and San Francisco. I have sold many multi-unit properties and am happy to guide you in finding the right property or maximizing your sales price. Lets talk about strategies for successfully completing tax deferred exchanges as well! Investment property is one of the best ways to build and preserve wealth if approached correctly. I look forward to sharing my experiences with you.
