Meet LA Real

Where do you want to be? At LA Real, we understand that the answer to that deceptively simple question is different for every prospective buyer and seller. That’s why we tailor our approach to fit your desires, create a smooth, thoughtful process, and put your needs first every step of the way to get you where you want to be.

Los Angeles is a competitive market with many options. Whether you’re a new city dweller buying your first home, selling for the first time, or seeking a place with room to grow, we’ll be your dedicated guides. After facilitating more than $350 million in sales, we know how to make our listings and clients stand out. We value collaboration, innovation, and fun, and we’ll always answer your questions promptly and in detail.

At LA Real, we’re not in real estate because it’s a job; we’re in real estate because we love it. By the end of your transaction, you’ll know that the relationship we’ve built won’t vanish when the sale is complete. We want to be by your side. And wherever you want to be, LA Real is here to help you get there.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
We’ve worked with James to both buy and sell a home and highly recommend him as a real estate agent. He is honest, thorough, and knowledgeable — and made our experiences smooth and far less stressful.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
My husband and I searched a long time to find the right agent to represent us and we were so glad when we finally found James. As first time homebuyers, we were looking for an agent who was a good listener and took time to understand our needs.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
My wife and I relocated to LA from the Bay Area for work and needed to find a place quickly. We spent two weekends with James looking at over thirty properties and ended up finding a wonderful condo that we love.

At first we were hesitant to make an offer on the property because it was already listed at the top of our budget in a competitive neighborhood. We explained our concerns and he made it work. He tailored an offer that we believe was...

We told him we wanted to set the neighborhood record “and more.” This was mostly because we ...

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
It would be difficult to oversell James! He was recommended to me by an architect I work with as someone who had every piece of the real estate puzzle mastered. James lived up to the description! I have been lucky to have worked with him as both a buyer and a seller, most recently selling my home in July 2017. He kept each process moving forward, keeping an eye on the big picture while simultaneously tr...
