Jim was introduced to us through my Credit Union and he worked tirelessly in helping my husband and I find a home that met the criteria we had expressed to him. He is extremely professional, dependable and responded quickly to our questions and requests. I highly recommend him and assure that you will not be disappointed if you use him as a realtor.
If you are looking for a professional who is patient and insightful, Jim is definitely the one you want to contact! He has been absolutely wonderful! He listened to all of our wishes and concerns to be able to help us make the right decisions. Jim quickly responded to our inquiries and always made time to meet with us (taking into consideration our super busy schedules). We can say with confidence that, while Jim is an excellent real estate agent, he is also a wonderful person and cares about his clients deeply to ensure that they get exactly what they are looking for. It's been an awesome experience working with Jim and we highly recommend him!
We especially appreciate Jim's professionalism, ability to listen to our concerns, and even temper. Jim has outstanding knowledge of the local market and makes many helpful suggestions. Impeccable integrity and honesty. We will not work with another agent.
Jim is great at answering phone calls and responding to text messages. His negotiation skills were invaluable when dealing with an impatient seller. His knowledge regarding lenders, negotiations, inspections , and closing made my wife and my dream come true. I highly recommend jim for a buyer or a seller, you wont be disapponted.
Jim was great, he deal that with us for months in our difficult journey of buying a home. He was always very patient and professional, I was very impressed of his knowledge of the Santa Clarita area witch helped a lot in decided the right place for my family. I'm very thankful for all his help, I recommend him 100%! he will make anything he can to make the buyer happy. Thank you so much Jim!
My husband and I met Jim Elliott when we went to a random open house. He was extremely helpful to us as we were not familiar with the Santa Clarita area. He gave us a personal tour of the area and helped us find the perfect home for our family. Jim went above and beyond to show us numerous homes until we were able to find the right home for us. His knowledge of home care and maintenance was also very insightful. Jim Elliott was a complete stranger when we first met him, and now he is a friend that we trust and continue to go to as a resource for our new neighborhood.
Jim Elliot is an amazing realtor that made my family's life so much easier. We had to sell our current home, and purchase our new home, which would be much closer to Paraclete. There's a lot of pressure to purchase a new home contingent on the current home selling, but Jim made it simple. Did I say that it was over the holidays as well? He pulled off a miracle, and we were in our new home before the end of the year. We were so impressed my Mr. Elliot ' s dedication to making our home buying needs come true, that we referred him to our best friend to find her dream home.
Over the years we have worked with many real estate professionals in both the buying and selling capacity. It has been a wonderful benefit to us to trust the huge investment we have made in our future in such knowledgeable hands as Jim's. We have not known and likely will not know someone with the depth of knowledge in the home buying process and our unique environment as Jim has shown over the many years we have known him and worked with Jim.

My credit union referred jim to my wife and I, on our first home purchase. Jim was very patient with us and very informed on all the steps closing escrow, he got us a great price on the house definitely will use him again . Very professional and honest.
We highly recommend Jim Elliott to any family whom is seeking to purchase a home. Jim is a flexible agent always willing to make your schedule work with his. As first time home buyers we could not have had a better agent than Jim. He was sensitive to our needs listening to our every expectation we wanted met in a home. Jim offered suggestions at all the right moments as well as offering some privacy in discussions when needed. He did more than open doors to homes for us to view, his knowledge in the field was exceptional! Thank You for being "key" in making our families dream come true!

Jim Elliott was a very helpful agent who helped me in every step a long the way when looking for a new house. He took his time to show me each property I wanted to look at and gave me details on the features of each of the houses using a great knowledgeable background in realty. He took his time in going over the details of the forms I needed to sign to make sure I would understand everything I needed to know. And he was always quick in answering inquiries I would make about what would the next process would be in the purchase of the home and other details. Overall, he worked hard to help me find my first starter home which is a home I'm very happy to have and I couldn't think of anyone else to do a better job.

We just went through our first home buying experience.....and we are so glad it was with Jim! He was literally there every step of the way....answered every question we had with extreme patience and was very knowledgeable. He negotiated things for us that we could never have done by ourselves....and we are very grateful for the time and effort he put in on our behalf. Highly recommend! You won't be disappointed! Thanks for everything Jim!

He put up with us for NINE MONTHS of looking and looking and looking! : ) We dragged him all over the Valley and he was ALWAYS there to promptly answer the phone and meet us at location after location!
We were first time buyers and Jim was so patient with that regard. Jim treated us with the utmost respect given our low budget. GREAT sense of humor too which is always a plus in my book!
Could not have picked a better agent! Thanks Jim, Theresa, & Sandy too! : )

Our experience with Jim was excellent. We had a very short time to find a place and Jim's promptness to take care of our needs got us the home and location that we needed. Jim is friendly and goes out of his way to help! We were glad to have his assistance!

This is the second house bought that I used Jim and Sandy Elliott as my RE agents. They also helped me sell my house. I can say that I love working with them. Always helpful and friendly. They are very knowledgeable of the area and the market. They are a pleasure to work with and very responsive and attentive throughout the whole process. Highly recommend.

Jim is GREAT!! I couldn't believe you could find such a loyal realtor in California!! He went the extra mile and did a great job on advertising my house. When my husband and I had to move to Oklahoma and the alarm went off. He, personally, drove to my house to check on it and called me back to let me know that everything was ok. When the termite guy came to inspect the house I was not able to be there and Jim met him there and gave him access to the house for me. Jim deserves more than 5 stars. My husband and I would give him 10 stars.

Thanks for all your help with selling my house. My expectations were exceeded with the sale price and you were very helpful with making sure everything got done on time. The amount of time I had to spend relating to the sale while having already moved was minimal and I really like how you always make yourself available. I also liked how you determined which buyers would be the safest bet, which could have been a huge problem that was avoided. Everything under your control went really well and I was happy with the outcome.
Jim was an absolute savior for me and my family! My job transferred me to the LA area and I needed to find a home for my family. I contacted the number on a real estate listing and thankfully Jim answered. I had not made an appointment of any kind but Jim graciously accommodated our needs and showed us some properties. Jim was extremely knowledgable and had a great presentation of the Santa Clarita area. Jim was patient and understanding through the entire process. He delivered and followed through on his promises. Next time I'm in the market for a real estate agent I will definitely call Jim and if he's busy with another client I'll wait.

Jim was great to work with. It was a sensitive time as we were selling our Dad's condo after his passing and Jim definitely understood that and always went above and beyond to provide information and make the process as easy as possible. When minor repairs and upgrades were needed, Jim had trustworthy, fair and competent contractors to refer and helped coordinate timely and expert level services. We sold on time and for over what we had expected to get. Closing was quick, seamless and we couldn't have asked for more. Jim and his team were professional and personable

My husband and I met Jim at an open house. He was genuinely kind and wanted to help us. Dozens of realtors have taken our contact information, but Jim is the ONLY ONE who initiated and maintained contact with us for several months, sending us listings and updating our preferences. Over the past two years, Jim has assisted us with searching for homes for sale, homes for rent, and with relocating. I highly recommend Jim for his efficiency, as he always responds promptly to email and phone calls and follows through. Jim is a man of integrity, and I am equally impressed by his friendliness and care for our family. It is rare to find a tenured business person who sincerely has the client's best interest at heart, someone with whom you can trust the future of your family. Jim Elliott is just that kind of human being and an outstanding realtor!!

My wife and I were longtime apartment dwellers and were finally in a position to fulfill our life-long dream of owning our own home. Little did we know, but the market at the time was extremely competitive. We had some serious disadvantages, from being first time buyers, not having a huge amount of cash to put down, and having a very clear picture of the kind of home we wanted. I could not be happier to report that despite all the difficulties, my wife and I are now in a beautiful home and our agent turned out to be a life saver. We contacted Jim Elliot on a word-of-mouth recommendation from a friend, and we could not be happier with the results. From the very beginning, Jim made us feel at ease and was 100% committed to finding us exactly what we wanted, even though we weren't the 'big fish' in the pond. Jim worked tirelessly, meeting our schedules, working the weekends, replying to our constant inquiries at all hours of the day. He was completely attentive to our requirements and went the extra mile to make sure that we were well cared for. He walked us through every step of the way, from our first meeting to close of Escrow, and gave us the advise and guidance that finally closed the deal on a house we love. Jim and his team have certainly earned both our respect and our complete loyalty. I would recommend Jim Elliot to my friends and family without a seconds hesitation. He's a quality professional and a good man.

I recently purchased and sold my home through Sandy and Jim. The process on both ends was very well managed. I was kept well informed of the status of both transactions. They made the complexities of the transaction go very smoothly. It was clear to me that it's a challenging process and I appreciate their patience and dedication to getting both deals completed with as few issues as they could control. Sandy and Jim are very knowledgeable in Santa Clarita Realty and will connect you with some great buyers or sellers. I am now kept very abreast of Realty happenings in Canyon Country, Newhall, Saugus, Valencia and Castaic, even though I am not actively looking. This helps me keep my finger on the pulse of the market without having to constantly engage a real estate agent on my own. I wholeheartedly recommend Sandy and Jim for all Real Estate services! I know I will be going through them in the future.
We worked with Jim (& Sandy) to sell our home, several years after meeting Jim at an Open House and finding him to be a terrific guy who seemed quite knowledgeable and someone we'd enjoy working with in the future. First of all, I was always very impressed that Jim kept in touch from time to time to check in and find out how we were doing and whether we needed his services, but always in a very kind and gentle way, not pushy at all. During the process of selling our home, Jim was extremely helpful in guiding us through the process of preparing to list, choosing a list price, and all of the many decisions that have to be made along the way. Again, he always offered his opinion, but listened to us and our opinions & thoughts as well. In the end, we got a TERRIFIC price for our home, it sold in a very reasonable amount of time (after receiving quite a few offers, some which we turned down to wait for better ones), and although we did have some glitches with our closing, they were not Jim's doing whatsoever, and again, he guided us through the process the best way he possibly could have. I would recommend working with Jim to anyone who would need real estate service without reservation!

To Whom It May Concern:
As my realtor, Jim helped me in my search for a home in the Santa Clarita Valley. I found him to be very knowledgeable on the local housing market and with all aspects of the home buying process. His availability to accommodate my unusual schedule was extremely helpful. Jim’s experience from living and working in the Santa Clarita Valley for many years is a tremendous asset for anyone considering buying or selling a home. I highly recommend Jim as a realtor.

Dear Jim (AKA One Stop Shop),
We greatly appreciated everything you did to help us find a great new residence. You exceeded our expectations ridiculously! We are very happy in our new home, and have you to thank for it. Thanks so much!

To Whom It May Concern:
Sandy and Jim Elliott made our home buying experience a great one. Together, they have a true commitment to their clients.
Our experience with Sandy and Jim began several months ago when we asked them to help us find a new home. At that first meeting, they took the time to ask us about our needs. They listened. From here, they helped organize and prioritize which neighborhoods and homes would work best for us. Jim did a great job of keeping in contact, informing us quickly regarding new properties that met our criteria and scheduling showings that were convenient.
From the beginning, Robert and I had a strong sense of trust in Sandy and Jim. Their professionalism and real estate knowledge made us feel quite confident in their abilities and their diligence earned them our trust and respect. We knew that they had our best interests at heart.
We made offers on several properties due to competition and short sales. Jim was conscientious in following up on houses that we liked; even the ones that were already in escrow and letting us know their status. The home we purchased was a short sale. It was previously in escrow with another buyer, but fell out. As a result of Jim's regular contact with the listing agent, we were able to purchase the home. Communication was great!
We recommend Sandy and Jim to all of our family and friends. We're confident that they will get the same level of service and commitment that we did.

WHAT A GREAT EXPERIENCE!!
Jim Elliott is a friendly, easygoing and very knowledgeable agent. He worked with me and my hours, was very helpful in showing me what I was interested in and within my dollar range, was never pushy and had wonderful ideas. I am new to all of this, being my first time buying a home, but Jim took good care of me and explained everything along the way. I had Jim over one evening to my apartment, and after showing him where and how I lived we were able to narrow down the range and then he found me my new home. This is my first, I'm 53 years old and have always rented. I never thought I could buy a home I could call my own. But with an agent like Jim, he helped to make that a reality for me. What a great feeling it is too! I owe a lot to Jim and the great personal service he provided me.

Dear Sandy and Jim,
Thank you so much for all your effort and hard work in selling my home. It was truly a pleasure working with you. I appreciate all of the personal service and special attention I received. It was nice to have licensed Real Estate Agents working with you personally instead of an agent who is so busy he has to pass you off to unlicensed assistants. And having a team of two was great also. I could always count on one of you being there for me when I needed you.
The weekly updates were very helpful. It's important to know what's going on in the market while you have your house listed. I can tell you both put a lot of effort and attention to detail into selling my home. And I felt very comfortable with you having open houses while I was away on the weekends. Normally that would make me nervious, but I completely trust you, you are very nice people.
Thanks again and when I need an agent in the future, you will be getting a call from me. I have passed out your business cards and note pads to my friends. I will recommend you both to anyone I know who is looking for an agent.
