James Valenti, Realtor

Customer Comments

The best realtor I have ever worked with and I have worked with many. James is very professional and hard working. I would highly recommend James Valenti and guarantee you will be impressed with the results. In fact we are currently working on other projects together.

 James was AWESOME. Helped us both sell our house and buy a new one. Always positive and upbeat. Gave you pros and cons on each house. Never said no when we wanted him to show us a listing (on Father's Day) and last minute. Would use James again without question.

We relocated to the Jacksonville area in 2012 and had the good fortune of being connected with James Valenti as part of that relocation. Since we were new to the area, the extensive market knowledge that James provided was key in determining where we wanted to live. At that time the inventory was limited in St. Johns county and James helped us navigate through the all the builders in the area. We wrote a contract and went through the construction process with James actively engaged the whole time. A new job opportunity prompted us to move again this year. James was the obvious choice for us. Thanks to his pricing guidance and personalized marketing efforts we had a signed contract in hand in less than two weeks. We are confident that we maximized our sales price as a result of using James Valenti. We highly recommend his services.

James Valenti recently listed and sold our beach house on Ponte Vedra Beach. James had sold us the home in 2010. We have been involved in 3 real estate transactions this year and the sale with James was by far the most agreeable. He impressed me as the most competent of the 6 or so brokers involved in the different transactions. James is exceedingly professional and attentive to detail. He has a wealth of local market knowledge and is well connected in the community. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to others and I would certainly jump at the chance to use him again.

We were not up to date on the real estate market. We interviewed 3 realtors and they all gave us comps for our neighborhood. The first listing recommendation was very low. The second recommendation was a lot higher. When we interviewed James, he told us that we should list our home even higher. He said the market was on an upswing and our home had a lot more upgrades to take into account. We selected James because he knew our home would sell above the existing comps. Because of his expertise and knowledge of the real estate market in our area, we got top dollar and more than we expected. We highly recommend James and when we sell again, he will be the one to handle the sale.

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the outstanding job you did marketing and ultimately selling my home.  From the very start you were courteous, knowledgeable and professional.

Your renovation recommendations for a house that had been a rental property for 16 years were excellent and reflected your vast knowledge of the market.   I was pleasantly surprised by your willingness to review my paint, carpet and tile selections at the neighborhood Lowes to ensure that they appealed to the widest array of buyers.

Since I no longer live in Jacksonville, you gave up your time to oversee various maintenance contractors including the air conditioner repair, septic repair, lawn care, granite countertop installation, carpet and tile installation and interior painting.

Throughout the nearly 5 month process you remained positive without being a “cheerleader”.   You were always available by mail or cell phone and provided timely feedback about how things were going.

Today, with customer service on the decline, it was refreshing to find someone who embraced the concept.

All the best to you and wishing you continued success.
