  • James was incredible!! He helped me and my husband buy our first home. He’s insanely knowledgeable, he was very meticulous whenever we saw a house together. He would check every little thing, from wall to ceiling.. literally and the whole foundation of the house. He knew exactly what we wanted and found us the perfect home. He was patient, kind and honest. We bought during such a tough market and it would not have been possible without him. We trusted him 100% with everything. My husband and I had an agreement that all 3 of us had to agree on the house (LOL). This house is beautiful, and our dream home, however, if the time comes and we want to buy another place, he’s the only one we would trust. Thanks for everything James!

He went above and beyond to be accommodating and to make the process as easy as possible. There's no doubt you want James taking care of you in this kind of important transaction.

    Name: Sold a Single Family home in 2020 in Bel-Air, Los Angeles, CA

  • We knew that the sale of our parents’ home was going to be a challenging one when we selected James Helgager to be our realtor. This property was solidly constructed, but with a quirky design and without any major upgrades for its entire 57 years of use. Add in a Covid-19 pandemic and most realtors might head for the hills. James however, took all this in stride and expertly dealt with multiple offers, repair issues, etc., without ever missing a beat! It was very honestly a thrill ride that came to a happy ending only with the professional expertise that James provided. He is honest, straight-forward, and respectful of his clients and their property, no matter how crazy things get. I could not have asked for a better person to work with on this mission. If you have a difficult property to sell, or a complicated transaction ahead of you, James Helgager is the realtor you want to put your trust in!

  • James Helgager was so helpful in selling my father's house. We appreciate all the legwork he did to make sure that the transaction went smoothly. He was always available to answer questions regardless of the day or time, which was much appreciated. We felt confident with his expertise and knowledge about the homes in the area. The whole experience with James just seemed to go smoothly. He is a very personable guy, he is levelheaded and seemed to truly care about us and our needs. I would definitely recommend James for any real estate needs.
    Name: Sold a Single Family home in 2019 in Northridge, CA

  • Let me begin by saying I've known James' fam since 1992. His grandparents were my landlords and guided me to the purchase of my first home in 1995. Then through my second home in 2002. I just retired, sold that house with James' help and bought my dream home at the beach. I can honestly say I could not have done it without his patience and guidance with and for me. My life could not be happier now (except of course if James would get his rear up here to visit more often). He is, without a doubt, the most experienced, PATIENT, consistent, hard working real estate agent I have ever known or worked with. He has an uncanny ability to read his client's anxieties and fears and calm them not only with assurances but with ACTION. Without James' help I'm sure I would have wound up with less from my home in the Valley and having had paid more for the beach house I have now. His eerie real estate e.s.p. is creepy sometimes.... he even looks a bit like Yoda NOT -he's such a handsome devil his For Sale sign will enhance your front yard and bring around stray cats for miles LOL - but he was always right in the end and I cannot more wholeheartedly recommend him not only to the first time buyer but to the seasoned real estate buyer/trader as being someone you can not only trust and rely on, but as being someone you will want to be friends with for many years just as I have been with him and his grandparents and brother since I was young and (even more) beautiful.

We could not have made it through this very difficult time without him.

  • Amazing experience- highly recommended! He knows the area extremely well, helped us out tremendously in all aspects of selling our old home and purchasing our new one. He went above and beyond expectations. Couldn't be happier.
    Name: Sold a home in 2013 in Woodland Hills & Westlake Village, CA

  • James Helgager was indispensable throughout the highly stressful process of the selling of our home. We needed to relocate to northern California during a tough sellers market and he was there for us all the way. His extensive experience and knowledge as well as his reputation for dedication to serving his clients as a residential real estate broker gave us assurance that we would be in competent hands. He is friendly, courteous and easy to talk to, always on top of things and always kept us informed of what was going on, even when we were out of town. He was by our side every step of the way during the negotiating and selling process and went far beyond our expectations through all aspects of the transaction. We could not have selected a more capable realtor. I believe that anyone looking to buy or sell real property in this area would be well served by using James as his or her realtor.
    Name: Sold a home in 2012 in Woodland Hills, CA

  • James was really helpful as we looked for a house in the West Hills/Woodland Hills areas. He knew all the layouts of the houses we were looking at. And he showed us houses at any day of the week. He also helped us find problems with potential homes. When we found the home we would end up buying, he helped us see the potential and addressed our concerns. He had accurate estimates on what some of the costs were going to be, and it helped us figure out if this house was the right one, and if we could afford the changes we'd want to make. During the negotiating process, he helped us buy the home at about 80K below the original asking price, and walked us through a particularly stressful escrow process. We were glad he was there with us every step of the way. He's really trustworthy, and let's you know what's really going on. And we love the house now! We did a lot of low-cost changes, many of which James suggested, and we couldn't imagine living anywhere else. He has since helped us find quality contractors (such as our floor guy and our gardener) in the area that are very reasonable in price. We still stay in touch with him, and we'll definitely use him again should we ever leave our house, although I think we're going to stay here for a long, long time.
