"I first learned of James in 2000 when I was living in Marin and looking around in the city. I used one of his agents to show me a place. In 2004, I met with James himself and looked once again in the city. This time, I found the perfect place and I jumped on it. James made the entire process simple, and I highly recommend his services.
I cannot speak to the quality of his current agents as I have never worked with them. I can tell you that James is hands-on with the business so why not call him directly and deal with the boss. That is what I did and I am writing a 5-star review as the result.
"I have used James Wavro to rent my property 3 times in the past 5 years. Each time I dealt with James I was very impressed with his professionalism and his knowledge of rental laws and issues. He is very thorough and considerate. I have always valued James' recommendations, and I will continue to work with him in the future. David S."
"James was referred to me highly by a real estate investor. I had a residential property that I needed to rent and I was told he was really good and worth the money. He found me a wonderful tenant in short order. His advice was terrific. James has an excellent sense of property value as well as being adept at assessing people. The process went really smoothly. I value his advice and I very much appreciate the service he provides. I call him from time to time when I have questions. He is prompt and knowledgeable. He takes the time to talk to me. I have referred a number of clients to him and will continue to do so. His associates have been just as professional.
"James Wavro found me a place to rent in San Francisco in Jan 2009. In the subsequent 2 years his associates have found homes for several of the employees of my company too.
I work with them mostly for the range of high quality SF rentals. Somehow they consistently get the best places (across a range of budgets).
We have also found the associates to consistently be responsive, professional and likable. This is a really hard industry to build a business and with high emotions to manage in all stakeholders, so I respect the standards they are able to maintain for us.
I've placed 20-30 people in the Bay Area and I haven't found another group with such style and professionalism.
