"James Renfro...recently helped facilitate the sale of our daughter and son-in-law's condominium in North Park. The fact that Richelle and Ken (Okada) currently live and work in Shanghai, China, made the task more complicated, but they were able to work together with email, SKYPE, and faxing to get all of the documents completed and signed in a timely manner. As their property managers while they were out of the country, my husband and I were able to help communicate details between the Okadas, the current tenant, and Mr. Renfro in his El Cajon office. Our original contact with James Renfro was actually from a "cold call" of his to us when a property was for sale in the El Cajon area near where we own a rental condominium. He consulted with us in our home about the possibility of selling that and determined now was not a good time in this economy. when we mentioned that our daughter and her husband were thinking of eventually selling heir North Park condo, Mr. Renfro made a connect"

"James Renfro and his team helped my fiance and I fine and close on our first home at the end of in 2012. He showed alot of patients with me as I came into the market with the old champagne taste but with beer budget. He stuck with me the whole time no matter how difficult I made it. He kept in contact with us just about every day and always made time to show my fiance and I a house even on a short notice of us calling him. He walked through every house with us and used his own experience on what a house with good bones looks like, he inspected the little things that we would not even have thought about looking at. James made sure that I got a house that was in a great location even though at times I just wanted to buy any house in any locations just because of price. It made me feel really good HE DID NOT TRY TO SELL US A HOUSE HE WAS HELPING US FIND A HOME. I just cant say enough we got a great home that we love and have tons of equity in now, he helped us beat out all the cash buyers"

"I purchased a home in 2012 through the Renfro Realty Group it was a flawless experience. They are prompt, professional and a pleasure to work with. I would not hesitate to use them again with buying or selling a home and would recommend to friends, family and anyone else. "

"First time buyer! James and his specialists held my hand through the whole process, from the initial interview to the 'here are your documents on CD for your new home". Three notable things that gave me the confidence to purchase my new home: 1) A home I wanted - required a trip to the city's buildings/permits office - James was there, house home inspection James was there -- summary add on not permitted and structural damage led to a no-go...keep looking, 2) Finding a lender, my bank was slow to process - James found me a broker - that was responsive, respectfully, and provided the customer service that again gave this first time home buyer the confidence to move forward with a home purchase, 3) The market -- everything was a short sale or foreclosure -- gess how disappointing for a buyer -- couldn't compete with all the flippers buying up restate, James patiently waited and still visited the listing I wanted to see, until I had the epiphany - I could wait for a process and get a home"

"I was in a fight to do a short sale and James and his team was able to take care of everything for me and sell my home. The stress he took from me was incredible. He kept in touch with me every step of the way. I had a buyer within weeks !!! "

  -Joanne Ambort, Client

"My wife I engaged James Renfro to be our agent for the purpose of searching for a specific property we were looking to purchase. Because we were looking for some property in a metro area, it meant James had to run us all over the outer skirts of the county, with never a single complaint. James call bocks and his support staff response was excellent. I would definitely recommend Renfro Realty Group to Friends and Family "

"James Renfro and an associate were in my neighborhood going door to door seeking new clients one afternoon. After friendly greetings and a following conversation, I explained that my mother had passed away and I wanted to sell her property that was now vacant. The house sold after a few days and all parties were as happy as a clam at high tide!"

"No property is too small to list or sell! Thanks to James Renfro we went to the house found on line and made a bid. Several other local real estate brokers did not call back or even return my emails. I was pre-approved for a loan and the house bid was less than the amount borrowed. Now that the housing market is coming back in our area people are investing again and home owners are buying and some of my neighbors are fixing up their homes and selling them. I for one do not fall in love with each of my homes, soon I'll remodel this house and go for my 10th home or 12th lot. "
