We highly recommend working with James Chen and 13 East Realty on your next real estate transaction! We had a wonderful experience and, as first time homebuyers, feel so fortunate to have had him on our side. The real estate market in Los Angeles can be brutal for a first time buyer. You can have fantastic credit and a steady job, be pre-approved by a major bank with a 20% down payment, and yet this will just help you get your foot in the door.
Competing with buyers making all cash offers and/or willing to waive protective contingencies seems to be the new normal. But we didn’t end up discouraged, cynical or exhausted, and are right now happily living in our new home in the heart of LA. This is due to James’ dedication to making sure that we were at all times well-informed, that we stayed true to our “must haves” when we might have settled, and that we ultimately invested in the right home for the best value.
James Chen stands above the rest in this industry. He has genuine integrity, is extremely honest, and will strategically advocate for you. At all times, James was well-prepared, responsive, systematic and organized. His character – upbeat, friendly and considerate – is priceless. There are a lot of realtors out there, but we’re so glad we didn’t work with just anybody. We worked with James because he came highly recommended by my parents. He represented them when they sold their house and also helped them negotiate the purchase of their new home.
James with his wealth of experience is an extraordinary and professional Realtor. We were lucky to work with him, and you will be too!
