Let me start by saying I am an experienced real estate investor who has been around the block. I found Jimmy Reed by clicking on his name and two others next to a property that interested me. All three called me back but Jimmy set himself apart by finding answers about the subject property and as any good salesman should do, he found similar options for me. He didn't make me prove myself to him before he spent time helping me. Jimmy and his wife Lisa are top notch. They helped me through multiple offers on multiple properties. They even answered my phone calls much later into the evening than I should have been bothering. In the end, Jimmy's negotiations skills and Lisa's follow through proved valuable and reassuring. Their skills secured me a good property at a very fair price. Not only are they sharp, but they are genuinely nice people too. I strongly recommend calling Jimmy for all of your real estate needs. -user5408884
Some investors are hands-on and some are hands-off. Jimmy works well with both, and he is a no-nonsense guy who can get down to business yet who will also happily take the time to guide and explain when desired. He is highly reachable and offers digital document signing which works on both computers as well as mobile and tablets.
Jimmy Reed was a lifesaver!! I can't say enough good things about him. He is professional, extremely knowledgeable and just an all around nice person. We trust him completely. We recently bought a townhouse in Carlsbad with Jimmy's help. We were trying to complete a 1031 exchange and had to follow some very strict IRS rules. We were also trying to complete the transaction within a short time window. Jimmy was able to negotiate with the seller on our behalf and steer us in the right direction. He was very much on top of all the rules and timeframes. His assistant, Lisa, was top notch also. Jimmy made a complicated procedure, one that we could handle. He also knows everyone in the industry (loan officers, mortgage officers, 1031 exchange accommodators) which made the process go more smoothly. I would give him a 10 out of 10 rating. -linsite

We used Jimmy Reed and his team to negotiate a very complex 1031 exchange, we sold one investment property while simultaneously buying another. He explained in detail, his strategy, he listed our property for sale and on a weekend in January held our open house, two days later we had 2 offers. He and his team Lisa and Kate are very, very helpful, they kept us abreast of negotiations, if we had a question, it was always answered very quickly. This is a great team, for any real estate transaction I would not choose another team, smart, knowledgeable and what could have been a real headache for us in terms of deadlines and worry was all brought smoothly to its hopeful conclusion, a sale and purchase. Thank you guys you were great! -smbydalek
