TESTIMONIALS

"Dear Jamie and Michelle,

Our family was living in Southern California and decided to purchase a home in Grass Valley. We had very little direct knowledge of the area but enough to know that this is where we wanted to spend the next chapter of our lives. We were referred to Jamie through a dear friend and he quickly understood what we were looking for and established daily communication and information updates for us to review. We finally set up a weekend to view the choices that were attractive to us online and Jamie arranged to set aside an entire day to view houses. He and Michelle must have driven us over 100 miles that day and to over 10 homes to show us all of the various possibilities that would meet our needs. Jamie and Michelle were a wealth of information not to mention wonderful to spend time with.

We were able to narrow down our choice and decided to make an offer before we returned to Southern California. We had concerns that managing a purchase from 600 miles away would be stressful and full of challenges. Both Jamie and Michelle generously gave their time and dedication to making sure that they were present for all inspections and walked us through the pitfalls that we stumbled on along the way. They were able to help us navigate gracefully through the challenges as they came up until we successfully closed escrow.

We have been in our new home for almost one month and absolutely could not be happier. It meets all of our needs and we will always be grateful to Jamie and Michelle for facilitating the purchase. We would recommend using Jamie and Michelle as Realtors to anyone considering either buying or selling a home."

“When it came time for us to select a Realtor to sell our parents’ home, it was an easy decision. We have known Jamie Barber for many years and realized immediately that his integrity, work ethic and focus on the task at hand would serve us well in our sale process. As time passed and the market dictated changes, Jamie was always there with current statistics, comparable home sales and trends in the market. He was wonderful in explaining each step along the way so we had a clear picture of our situation, and was careful in showing us all our options so we could make good decisions. He was very patient, which in turn helped us to be patient in this somewhat difficult market.

When a good offer came in and we were beginning the paperwork to open escrow, it became clear the VA loan would have extra requirements, would take extra work and would require diligence on the part of our Realtor. Jamie not only never disappointed us, he repeatedly amazed us at his willingness to attend to each and every detail, his knowledge of what was required, and his energy at meeting each deadline and each requirement as they were presented. His diligence was impressive, very much appreciated and we are convinced, his efforts were responsible for the successful and smooth closing of escrow.

We now have wonderful new neighbors and can certainly thank Jamie for that, too. Without a doubt, Jamie would be our go-to-guy if ever we have a future need for a Realtor, and our only recommendation to our friends for their Real Estate needs would be to contact Jamie Barber.”

“My introduction with Jamie Barber was a few years ago. He was working with my aunt, helping her find a house to purchase. When it came time for me to sell my own home, I knew Jamie was the man for the job. My previous interactions with him were positive, and I was confident in his abilities. I was right. I was living out of state at the time. Through phone and email interactions, Jamie was able to help me through the process. I had never sold a home before, and I had so many questions. Jamie took the time to educate me in the process and expectations. He arranged appointments and was at the house when I could not be. He kept me well informed each step of the way. Jamie was an invaluable resource before, during, and after this process.”

“When Kelly and I first met Jamie, we had just fired our previous realtor for laziness and not having our interests at heart. We were referred to Jamie through a family friend. Meeting with Jamie was the best decision we could have made before buying our home. I was stunned at how honest and up front Jamie was with all our questions and even with the questions we did not know we had, thanks to Jamie. Kelly and I probably worked Jamie pretty hard looking at 50+ homes in two different counties, all over a period of 2-3 months. I remember the first day Jamie offered to take us out looking at homes, it was a Sunday. We were shocked that he would take us looking at homes on a Sunday, but Jamie always told us "I'm here for you". Jamie always made us feel like family. Once we finally decided on a house in Alta Sierra, the buying process went great with Jamie at the helm. Kelly and I lived in the house for just seven years and during that time Jamie made sure to stop by with little trinkets or call to say hi every few months. After our seven years in the Alta Sierra home Kelly and I decided to sell our house to move to Tennessee. Once we told Jamie we were ready to sell, he was once again "There for us". Jamie made sure our house was priced right and marketed in as many venues as he had available to him. We were shocked once again when we had a full price offer on the house in less than 10 days. We were so shocked because we actually had to make our moving date a month earlier than planned. Once we made our move to Tennessee, our sale was final and figured this would be one of the last times we would speak with Jamie for quite some time. I then sent a quick email asking Jamie how I go about finding a real estate agent like him here in Tennessee. Jamie took the time to find and contact via phone two possible agents for us in Tennessee. In my book, Jamie is a good person and a great agent. Always going above and beyond the normal expectations of an agent.

Thank you Jamie.”

“Imagine you are looking for a house on acreage, private, with square-footage and a sound structure, all within a limited budget and in an area with not much inventory—and your realtor doesn’t balk. We were optimistic, had unlikely expectations, and were possibly a realtor’s worst nightmare—we were determined to wait for the perfect property. Jamie Barber took the time to educate us on the process and the market, research different neighborhoods, organize and stand inspections, as well as anything else that turned out to be needed, while never making us feel like we were wasting his time (which we are sure we did more than a few times). He encouraged us to look at more properties, to call him more, and to not settle. With a limited budget, we did not expect this kind of dedication and support from our realtor. And with a great support staff at Network Real Estate, we never felt like we would miss out on a property.

Beyond Jamie’s infectious work ethic and professionalism, his attention to detail is what truly sets him apart. We encountered a very difficult escrow. You could even say it was one of the more difficult escrows a realtor has had to navigate. Jamie carefully worded our contingencies, researched and advised us on all of our options, and handled a difficult situation with ease, and we are very grateful to have had him on our side.

In the end, we found the perfect house, and, a friend.”

"I would strongly recommend Jamie to represent clients as a real estate agent. Jamie went far beyond what I have experienced from real estate agents with his dedication and thoroughness. I purchased a local house while living out of state this summer, and Jamie arranged every detail and made sure I was well represented through every step in a long process. He kept me constantly informed and provided an abundance of information for me to help this complicated process run smoothly. His professionalism and integrity made me feel confident that my interests and needs were always foremost in his mind. Besides all this, Jamie, while totally competent, has the personality of a down to earth, ‘regular’ guy whom is a pleasure to be with."

Jamie Barber, the REALTOR®, was recommended to me by my good friend, Gayle, as well as another person that I had worked with for a long time, Shannon. As a single mother I was buying a home for the first time. I needed someone that I could trust more than anything and they couldn't sing his praises high enough.

So, I contacted Jamie Barber and started the long process of looking for a home. He was always there for me and seemed to drop everything to show me the homes that I really wanted to see when I needed to see them. He was very reasonable to talk with as well as professional and even didn't mind taking me to homes that I wasn't quite sure about. I would feel sorry that I bothered him with them but he said:"That way, we can cross them off your list and you know what you don't want."

With each offer, he walked me through the whole process and all the mounds of paperwork.

He was a very expert and knowledgeable person in the field of real estate and would always have an answer for me. We finally found the home that I wanted and they accepted the offer. Then, it seemed the buying process was just beginning; the home inspections, the escrow and loan process. But through it Jamie was at my side as he helped me through the whole thing. When it was all done and I had some problems at the end. He even returned my calls on his weekend to make sure that I was helped or if I wasn't he would help me through it again.

I would recommend Jamie Barber to handle any of your real estate needs. He helped me buy my home in a friendly, warm and expert manner. And, I wasn't the person paying for his services, the seller was. But in Jamie's case I'm sure that didn't matter. He was always there for me anytime or anywhere that I needed anything in regards to the purchase of my new home.

I really feel that I made a new friend in Jamie."

“When shopping for an investment property in the Grass Valley area I was referred to Jamie Barber by a REALTOR ® where I live in San Jose. Although this REALTOR ® had never actually met Jamie, she was impressed by him when working with a previous client just a few months prior while looking for home in Grass Valley.

Jamie listened to my wish list and setup an automated email sending me daily MLS listings of homes that fit my description. After about a week I had made a list of 20 or 30 homes I wanted to see in person. Jamie put together a package for me of each of the properties, listing out all the details of each house and called the listing agents to setup an appointment for a visit. We were able to quickly and efficiently visit all the homes in a short period of time. We graded each house with an ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘C’ or ‘No Way’. Jamie took the pressure off by making the house shopping experience fun. After just a few homes, Jamie could see a pattern in the ones I did or didn’t approve of and for what reasons. By the second day of house shopping I found the home I wanted, and not from MLS list either, it was one that Jamie had found and thought that I would like, so he suggested we take a look at it. It felt right just as soon as we drove up and by the time I stepped into the front door I fell in love the place.

Jamie helped me make and offer and walked me through all the steps of the negotiation process, getting me an excellent deal on the house. Since I lived out of town, Jamie was my eyes and ears and setup appointments with each of the inspectors and repair contractors, met them at the house and followed up with me on the phone after each was completed. There wasn’t a day that went by that Jamie didn’t call me, usually several times, to keep me in the loop and updated me on the progress. Jamie made me feel like I was his only client.

I had requested escrow to close in 30 days or less. Because Jamie was so efficient we were able to close exactly 20 days from the day our offer was accepted. As a REALTOR®, Jamie went far above and beyond my expectations. Even after escrow closed Jamie was there for me. Because this purchase was an investment I would need renters. Jamie spread the word to help me advertise and even showed the house to prospective renters for me when I couldn’t be there. Thanks to Jamie, I had renters in the house before the 1st mortgage payment was due!

Jamie Barber gets an ‘A+’!"
