Relocation and Home Marketing Specialist

Thanks for taking the time to visit my website! For the past twenty-six years I’ve been a Realtor with Better Homes and Gardens Mason-McDuffie in Orinda. As a California native and Lamorinda resident I enjoy living in this area. This is a great location where my wife and I can spend the holidays in Lake Tahoe, admire the beautiful vineyards of Wine Country, or take a twenty minute drive up to San Francisco to enjoy all the wonderful aspects of the city.

I think 2015 feels like it will be a strong year for real estate, especially in the Contra Costa county area. Interest rates have dropped to their lowest point in nearly 50 years and I'm hoping there will be more homes listed than in previous years to satisfy buyer demand. We have five homes coming to the market in the next 60 days and I expect all of them will sell readily. Please give me a call if you would like more information on these new listings.

In the meantime take a look around my website and click on the various links for more valuable information. One of the great services I provide for clients is Property First Alerts. This service is tailored to fit your specifications when looking for a new home. By signing up, you will receive e-mail notifications whenever a new listing hits the market. This is a great way for you to stay ahead of the crowd when you're starting the home search.

Get To Know jim

I’ve been in the real estate field since 1988. As a new agent in the 80’s I started out as a strong market was ending. Since then I’ve seen ups and downs, recessions, and runaway prices increases. I feel I can offer you perspective to help you make sensible real estate decisions.  I have greatly enjoyed meeting new people and helping families and individuals start a new chapter in their lives. Give me a call today so we can get to work!  

Technology & Social Media

I enjoy staying up to date with the latest trends in technology. With work, kids, and other activities it’s difficult for clients to come in and sign all the forms that real estate requires. To make it easier for my clients we use DocuSign for eSignatures. This secure platform allows individuals to sign on a computer, cell phone, or iPad/tablet. It’s fast, convenient and very easy to use. You’re never more than just one click away from doing all of the necessary paperwork! By using electronic signature and paperless transactions, I am able to provide a faster service to my clients while maintaining a “green” eco-friendly office.

"Jim Colhoun is the BEST! He knows Real Estate backwards and forward. I had many many roadblocks with the sale of my Condominium in Moraga, all of which Jim handled professionally, with expertise and relieved me of a lot of stress, including HOA issues and loan challenges with the Buyer. In addition I had a personal injury putting a kink into things almost immediately after initially listing the property. [...] Once I was able to put the property on the market, Jim was right there, he made sure the property had a ton of exposure and kept me informed every step of the way. Jim was always reachable if I needed him, which was rare, because he kept me informed about the progress of my sale in each and every phase of the process. I am very happy I used Jim for my sale and highly recommend the professional, knowledgeable, friendly and awesome Jim Colhoun. Words cannot express how grateful I am, I made the decision to use Jim for my sale. He also had fantastic recommendation for a mover. Contact Jim today!!!
