James listened to our needs and zeroed in on a neighborhood that we had not thought of. We are very happy in our new home.


—Amanda Gibson, Sacramento, Ca
  /  

I will use James Sedlar for all of my real estate needs going forward. He was consistently on top of things throughout the entire process. James is very professional, knowledgeable and went above and beyond making himself available for all of our questions well into the evening hours. He is efficient and its very apparent that he truly cares about his clients. I will recommend him to anyone I know in need of his services.


—Thea Crawford Sacramento CA
  /  

James is a pleasure to work with. He communicates consistently and keeps all parties involved well informed. He is available to answer questions and definitely went above and beyond when my busy work schedule prevented me from being there for some inspections. He even went to my house to stash some valuables I forgot to lock up before my house was shown! I will continue to work with and refer friends to James.


—Kristen in Sacramento

James Sedlar went above and beyond with all aspects of our purchase. We saw the house on a weekday evening and we loved it so much, James helped us prequalify that evening and made an offer to the seller's that night so we would not miss out on the property. He was very considerate and respectful of the fact it was after 8 pm with the other party but wanted to be sure that our needs were met. The seller's realtor was not very communicative with his clients and this would occasionally complicate items we were negotiating. James not only explained everything thoroughly to us and was always available for clarification he helped smooth the misunderstanding the other realtor caused. This meant everything to me and I appreciate the way James handled the whole situation. James helped me get my dream home and I don't believe it would have happened without him.


—Kim Mahoney-Sacramento
  /  

We had a fantastic experience with James Sedlar. He came through with some astute advice in shaping our offer as well managed a negotiation that at one point became quite tense. The seller had great pride in their home but had some questionable work done. James was able to negotiate the price to reflect the need to repair some issues and get any enhanced roof certification from the owner. We will happily be using James gain very soon when we get our former residence ready to list.


—Howard Mahoney, Tahoe Park
  /  

James Sedlar is an excellent agent. This is the fifth time we have worked with James on a purchase or sale of property. He is very responsive, easy to work with, and knowledgeable of the Sacramento market. Two of the sales/purchases involved a 1031 exchange, which went smoothly thanks to James. We highly recommend James and will definitely work with him again!


—Tina Lucas, El Dorado Hills
  /  

James Sedlar was very easy to work with. we had a lot of questions during the transaction. He communicated back quickly and professionally with a lot of patience.


—Sam Sanfilippo, Sacramento CA

James is amazing! He worked hard to keep everything going smooth and to make sure we got everything we wanted out of the sale of our home. If you are looking for a competent and hardworking realtor then call James!


—Christina, Sacramento, CA

James Sedlar was great. From our first meeting with James, we knew we wanted to work with him. He listened to our thoughts, ideas, and wants, and used his local knowledge to help us form a game plan. James walked us through the whole process to help us make informed decisions. We would have liked working with him longer, but he helped us buy our dream house quickly. If/when we sell or buy again, we want to work with James.


—Tim Oldenkamp, Sacramento
  /  

James is a wonderful person to work with. He is highly professional, friendly and possesses superior local knowledge, both of the real estate market and the local Sacramento scene. Our buying process was smooth and easy from start to finish. James was extremely flexible with his busy schedule for which we are very grateful. I highly recommend James to anyone looking to purchase a home in the Sacramento metro area.


—Andrew D., Sacramento
  /  

James was attentive to our every need. He was always available to answer questions and get answers for us. James was amazing in every aspect of our home buying process as we were first time buyers and had no clue what we were doing! James was patient and paid attention to our thoughts and comments when viewing houses, which was so helpful as we would look at other properties. He was super patient and understanding. We would highly recommend James for any real estate needs.


—Denise Dituri, Marysville, CA

Great working with James! Made the sale after I moved and he helped facilitate everything even though I was no longer in town!


—Thenu Chandrasekar, Sacramento
  /  

We first worked with James about 10 years ago when we were looking to buy a house. We were introduced to James by a friend who had worked with him for many years. He was great at finding homes for us to look at that met our criteria and if we found something we wanted to look at he was there to get us in. Thanks to him we found an amazing house the worked great for our family. It was an easy decision to select James again when we were ready to sell. James gave us advise on what to update and ideas on staging the house, he took care of have some great pictures taken of the house for the listing, and followed up with every agent that brought people through the house. I would recommend James as a buying or selling agent with out question.


—Randy & Stacy, Costa Rica

James Sedlar had an offer on my home ONE DAY AFTER he put it on the market!!! The transaction was smooth, absolutely problem-free, and closed escrow in 30 days!!! I couldn't have asked for a better experience!!! James was such a pleasure to have as my real estate agent; no pressure even when I took longer moving out of my house than I had first said. He had the answers to all my questions; it was just unbelievable how fast, efficient and smooth his team worked in getting my house sold and closed. Outstanding, Top notch, James is the ultimate resource in home sales!!!


—Linda Gospodnetich, Carmichael
  /  

I was in the market for an investment home and when I found that perfect place, James was there immediately to assist with the process. I made the process a bit challenging due to travel, but James was very accommodating and super responsive to all my questions. I'm very excited about my recent home purchase and would work with James again in the future.


—Vicki, Sacramento

Additional Testimonials

I'm not exaggerating or anything, but I've never seen a dedicated Realtor like you. I know at the end of the day you're super tired and probably don't want to deal with work stuff, but you really go over and beyond to help us. And believe that your dedication is appreciated by Ashish and me. Looks like you're never going to get rid of us.


—Jeshmeen R.

James Sedlar has represented my family on both ends of the sale; he helped us find our high-end home ($940,000) as well as sell it when it was time to move. On both occasions, James did a superb job meeting our needs as buyers and as sellers. I would not hesitate to use him in either capacity again. As buyers, James quickly became aware and in tune with our needs. He found properties that were a good match for us and always listened to our feedback and concerns. James was very available to us and was extremely responsive to calls and emails. James made us feel very important. As sellers, James made the process of listing and selling our home feel easy. He was on top of all of the details and led us through the process with care. He worked extremely hard for us following up on showings, contacting buyer's agents and marketing both locally and in key out-of-town markets when it made sense. The photographs of our home were so sensational that we have a few framed as memories in our new home. All in all, James made us feel so important and worked tirelessly for our needs. He made us feel special and I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.


—John Kinnune

James, thanks so much for guiding me through the process of buying a first home. You're a blast to work with. I feel like I got a house and a friend. Best wishes for continued success and many thanks!


—Kristin K.

James has a quality that we have not found in any other Realtor, he is very responsive, he is very willing to listen and hear all of our concerns. Not only does he hear our concerns but he acts upon them and brings resolution. Upon listing our home James has done a complete work up of the community we live in, the surrounding properties that are either on the market or those that have recently sold. This has enabled us to make well grounded decisions as the relate to the selling price of our home and the anticipated hurdles that we will experience. James is very well-versed in the latest technology and its effective use in the marketing of our home as well as the use of that technology in the actual selling of our home. He has presented us options and ideas utilizing the latest techniques and technology that we were unaware of and have proven very resourcefull to us in the process. James is extremely honest, he is caring and willing to hear our viewpoint, but that does not deter him from telling us his honest feelings. There has never been a time that James was not looking out for our best interest in the selling of our home. James' honesty and integrity is second to none, I would and have highly recommend him to anyone that is interested in either selling their home or making a purchase. He has represented us in both. James has our highest regards and we will gladly recommend him and his services to everyone.


—Don M.

James made me feel like he was working only for me. He clearly listened to what I needed and what I was looking for in a home. He made me feel like I could trust him from the very start. He kept me calm through this stressful process.


—Tresa D.

Very recently we purchased a new home utilizing James Sedlar as our agent. We were so pleased with how James facilitated all aspects of our home purchase that we asked him to represent us in listing our previous home. One of the key areas that differentiates James is his active communication and responsiveness. He was in constant contact with us providing updates daily (often multiple times a day) and ensuring every question we had was addressed to our satisfaction. He was always one step ahead of us anticipating our questions and concerns. If he didn't have answers whe was on the phone getting the needed information. He is quick to respond and we always felt we were his number one priority. Most importantly he listened to our needs, provided sound advice, and ultimately negotiated an above asking price amount on our listed home. We had very high expectations for the outcome of both our purchase and sale and James did not disappoint us. We are confident that James will provide the same dedicated support to any client he represents.


—Jim and Laura P.

James was the perfect mix of proactive without being pushy. He is very knowledgeable and he guided us to the purchase of our first home with full support. I'm very happy to have worked with James. I've already referred him to someone else and will continue to do so.


—Jessica F.

Thank you for all your help in finding Erika and I our new home in Carmichael and selling our old one in Folsom. While finding our home was a lengthy process, with offers and counter-offers, we appreciated your unwavering support, advice and insights. Your commitment to find us the right house, in the right neighborhood at the right price is a quality we will not forget. In addition, when it came to selling our Folsom home, your expertise in pricing it correctly was paramount to receiving the numerous offers that came in after only 2 days on the market. As you suggested, getting buyers in the door to appreciate the numerous upgrades and the home's custom features was essential in selling the home quickly. But who would have thought that in today's market, a bidding war would break out and thousands of dollars over the asking price would be offered. Your market analysis and strategy paid off handsomely. Again, thank you for everything; we couldn't be happier with your guidance on both transactions.


—Kris F.

I was a first-time home buyer with very little knowledge or experience in the home buying process. James Sedlar guided me through each procedure with an open-door communication policy. I felt confident throughout the whole experience that I was in good hands and that he was professional and represented me faithfully. His positive attitude and good perspective of the housing market was very calming. I most definitely recommend James and would not hesitate in using him again.


—Catherine L.

We were very satisfied with the service that James provided to our family. James was cognizant of the fact that we had a small baby with us and accommodated our needs and adjusted his schedules to make sure we were comfortable. At a very short notice he was available and got us a very competitive price for the house we bought in Sacramento. I remember the long week-end during Fourth of July when James helped us for the entire time to help us in our search for the home. He was aware of our needs, the specs we were looking for and made sure we spent out time looking at houses that were up to expectations and then we had a tough time deciding which one to pick. James stepped in and provided valuable market analysis, location comparisons and helped us identify our dream home.


—A. Pandravada

James did an excellent job by accurately pricing our property which resulted in a quick and easy sale! I will definitely be using him for the credit union's future transactions. Thanks James!


—Susan (Safe Credit Union)

James was very professional and easy to work with. He kept us very informed at all times. I will highly recommend James and Lyon to friends and family. James is a very positive person and represents Lyon very well.
