What our clients are saying
Was referred by a close friend to use James and he did not disappoint. Even in a competitive market, we learned that who represents you highly makes a difference. His connections and experience in his industry is superior and it shows through in finding the right fit for you to escrow and after. I’ve never had a experience where the realtor followed up after close even in the proceeding months. He treated us like family and consistently went the extra mile which made the process A TON less stressful and sometimes that’s exactly what you need in this high demand climate we’re in. We would 100% use him again for buying or selling a home and highly recommend him to our closest family and friends for a smooth and professional experience.

James helped sell my moms home for us and helped my sister-in-law buy a home so we have worked with him on both sides of being a seller and a buyer and I would use him over and over again and encourage all of my friends and family to do the same. He has a great attention to detail, makes you a priority, he is very knowledgeable and he really cares about his clients. He isn’t just trying to make a deal, he wants you to be happy with the transaction and he truly wants the best for you. If you’re looking for an agent, you can stop your search now. You will not be disappointed!

James Shelby did a fantastic job representing us as buyers. He communicated with us every step of the way, even when he was "off the clock". He is very knowledgeable about the real estate market in the Temecula/Murrieta area and he went above and beyond to make sure we got the house we wanted while we were living out of state and on a time crunch! Highly recommend!

James Shelby has been outstanding to work with for the purchase of our daughter's home. He is like having a lifelong friend acting as your personal realtor. I can't think of anything he could have done more to make the process go smoother. I am very happy we found and used James -- and will be using James for our home.
We have now completed the purchase of a home for us. James was outstanding in all aspects of the process. I would recommend James to anybody ..... including family members for all their real estate needs.
~ Gregory Kelish
James Shelby was referred to me through a mutual friend after a very unfortunate experience though a different agent. He made my home buying experience absolutely amazing. He was very knowledgeable, professional, and was always available no matter what time of day it was. I will 100% use him again for my next home!
James did an incredible job of selling our property and keeping us informed throughout the process! He was extremely knowledgeable and had a very clear goal in mind which is to make sure that he takes great care of his clients! Loved our experience with him. I will defiantly call him for any of our future real estate needs.
I highly recommend James Shelby and his team for any of your real estate needs. Even while I’ve as stationed overseas, James was awesome to work with and ensured our needs were being met in the process of selling our house. I was extremely impressed with his professionalism and the way he conducted business, he is extremely knowledgeable about the housing market in the valley and his marketing skills were top notch. I was not surprised one bit when he was able to sell our house in less than a week and above asking price as well. If you’re looking for a realtor in the Temecula valley area, you will not be disappointed with James and his team.
James and his team are phenomenal! My husband and I had such a bad experience when purchasing our first home and it was the total opposite with James and Frida. Very professional, best communication & really listened to what we wanted. James helped us sell our first home for over asking price and helped us purchase our dream home. Our dream home had approximately 20 other offers and with James and his great skill we were able to secure our home. Highly recommend him and his team definitely has been a great selling and purchasing experience. His team made it seem so smooth and easy but we know there was a lot of work being done without having to stress us. So grateful for his service
It is without hesitation that I highly recommend James Shelby! My husband and I haven't had the best of luck with real estate agents, but that all changed when we met James Shelby. He is professional, knowledgable, honest, and truthful. He listened to our needs and never promised us something he couldn't follow through with. More importantly, he protected us through the entire transaction. Thank you James!
James sold my home a little while back and did an outstanding job! He was professional, knowledgeable, and just an overall pleasure to work with. He made the whole process as easy as possible. Would highly recommend him if you’re looking to buy or sell your home!

James is an amazing realtor! He was professional and incredibly knowledgeable...our sale/purchase went so smoothly. He had great people to connect us with for our mortgage loan and home inspection, his photographer was terrific - our listing photos were incredible. I would never choose anyone else to do business with!!
James was wonderful to work with! He was very helpful from beginning to end of the sale. He is a very knowable and skilled realtor. He was wonderful at communicating with us through each step of the sale, always on top of the details, polite and pleasant to work with. Our rental home was sold very quickly at a good price. I highly recommend James.
We highly recommend James Shelby! Within days of listing our house for sale, we had 7 offers, all over our asking price! We ended up selling for $10K over the asking price and closed in less than 30 days. Thanks to James, it was a smooth, easy and stress-free process.
James Shelby is fantastic! He was there when we had any questions.James helped my father in law who is 86 with everything.James even hired a gardener to do the yard because we are 5 hours away. James worked around our schedule.I have bought 2 houses in the past from other realities and never had it this easy.I would have him sell any home using him and buying one. Do I recommend him to my family and friends ? I would not even think twice,that's a given He's the best!!!!!
James made the sale of my home a breeze. Not only did it sell only 3 days on the market but it also sold above list price. His responsiveness, communication, passion for the industry and his drive are hard to come by these days. I am very pleased with his service.
~ SONNET C MCCLURE
James is the definition of professionalism . From the beginning of our home sale until the end he was both honest and helpful. He sold our home on the first day it was listed. In my opinion you can't ask for more than that. He was knowledgeable about our area and did a fantastic job stirring up interest in our home.
James is seriously a miracle worker! After a long and frustrating journey, I was really discouraged and felt like I would never be able to sell my house. That's when I met James, and he made all of my dreams come true! If it weren't for him, I never would've sold my home and been able to move into my dream house! I highly recommend this man, he will go above and beyond for his clients! And it doesn't hurt that he is super frienndly and such a seeetheart while maintaining complete professionalism.
~ Jessica Whitacker
James and his team were professional. Navigated home sale in a divorce climate, which can be difficult. Made everything smooth and convenient and appear effortless.
James without a doubt is one of the best realtors out there today ! From the beginning to the end of the process we found him to be patient and attentive to our needs and he did not hestiate to answer our calls quickly. We were also very impressed with James when he was able to negotiate over our asking price for our home. The whole transaction went quickly and smoothly thanks to his staying on top of every detail. He is a true professional in every sense of the word and we will without hesitation use him again for all of our real estate needs in the future.
James Shelby gets it sold! Excellent service and professionalism throughout the entire process. He was patient, very flexible, and super quick to respond to our questions. We will continue to refer James to family and friends as one of the best in the business.
James was fantastic! He is a very attentive, patient, and knowledgable realtor. He put us in touch with all the right people to get the best loan, and he was super committed to showing us as many homes as we wanted to see on our schedule. He also made sure our sale and purchase closed same day so we could have an easy transition! We couldn't have asked for a better home buying experience.
~ Mika Morris
James is a true professional! From the first meeting, throughout the process and even after the closing, he always maintained excellent communication. He made us feel confident that he always had our best interests in mind. We were especially impressed by the feedback from one realtor that had dealt with James during our real estate transaction. He had said that of all the realtors he had interacted with, James was the most prompt in getting back to him and respectful of his buyers. Our experience was smooth because of his outstanding communication skills, his diligence and perseverance. We will ONLY ever refer and use James for any and all of our real estate needs.
Our daughters play travel softball and we have a very crazy schedule. Rain or shine, planned or last minute...James was always available for us. It was a long process, but James never gave up. He always was able to find more homes for us to look at. In the end, we couldn't be happier and appreciate all of his efforts in helping us find our new home. James is a true professional!
Great negotiators and a good follower and responds E-mails in timely matter even at night. They are very knowledgeable at Harveston neighborhood and go an extra mile to make sure the entire process runs smoothly.
Very knowledgeable of the market as they specialize specifically in the Harveston Neighborhood. Honest, reliable and understand the importance of finding the perfect home for their clients.
~ Buteau Family
James was hands down the best realtor we have came across. When we first started the process of looking to buy our first home we had contacted a many realtors but it seemed like they never call you back or get back to you in a timely matter. From day one he is on the ball, professionally, he gets back to immediately, keeps you up to date, is fast with any answers you need, or getting an offer in and staying on top of the entire process. It took us months and months to find the right home he was understanding the entire time even after showing us house after house and putting offers in and sometimes pulling our offer out, he didn't ever seem to mind. He just wanted us to be happy and not settle to find the correct home from us. I highly recommend using James to help you find the home your looking for or to list our home!!
James Shelby did an excellent and very professional job at selling my home. The sell went through quickly kept me informed at all times of the status during each step of the process and helped me when I was out of state by making sure everything was taken care of after the inspection. Thanks James. I would highly recommend you to anyone that is looking for a realtor.
James was always attentive, friendly, and understanding of our needs. He made the process seem so easy! Great guy. Very helpful. Very professional. I highly recommend James.
James Shelby is motivated, and a go getter, he goes above and beyond to make sure your well taken care of. His expertise was excellent, from the beginning to the end James made sure we were well informed throughout the whole process. He was on top of advertising our home everywhere, and as a result after an open house we got an offer on only 5 days! That's an excellant job well done! I would highly recommend James, and definitely would use him again and tell all my family and friends who may need a professional and all around nice guy...
My experience with James Shelby was great! I have used two other agents before and they were working hard to find me a house. James found me house after house fast until I found the one I liked. He wasn't pushy or rude. Very nice guy. I highly recommend him and I will continue using him.
