We have used James on our last four buy and sell transactions. You cannot find a more knowledgeable, detailed, thorough and persistent realtor. James will quickly determine your budget, desired location and your emotional vibe and match it perfectly to market availabilities. As you tour houses, you will notice that James is well known and respected by the other brokers in the market. Most importantly, James stays active throughout your transaction from open houses, offers, counteroffers, inspections, paperwork, etc. We have referred James to our friends and they have never been disappointed. We could go on and on.

OUR SUPER AMAZING AGENT - I would like to honor our real estate agent, James Hancock! Our history, with James is absolutely one of the best business experiences I have encountered. James sold us our first home in West Hollywood in 2000! Unlike other agents, James took the time to engage us as individuals and as a couple, to discover our style, and expectations! And with that knowledge, married us to the right property, AND the right price. He negotiated with skill and professionalism, down to the inspection. James takes the time to make each transaction smooth and uncomplicated, willing to do the work himself, if need be...he has a great staff, and his knowledge of the market, is RELIABLE. Because of our friendship and his experience we gave our friends his reference and ALL OF THEM AGREE, he is the best. We have consequently engaged James in marketing and selling our home in West Hollywood, in 2016...and he did a masterful job of marketing, staging and selling our home in a crazy market, as we relocated to New York City....AND he counseled us on the New York market.....we have had many experiences with TOP agents in New York and California....ALL others, have either tried to oversell...or negotiate up front, and disappear, giving another person the job. NOT JAMES.....anyone considering buying or selling, I highly recommend our agent James Hancock. He is awesome!

I’ve done several transactions with James. He is my go-to agent for all things real estate. He’s knowledgeable, patient and kind. James makes me feel like I’m his only client (of course I’m not) and is always available for advice and for a successful close on a deal. I always look forward to working with James again.

We started working with James the minute we arrived in Los Angeles to look for a house. At first we weren’t sure which area of the city to live in, whether to rent or buy and had many questions. James not only drove us around patiently while we figured it all out, but was incredibly helpful in answering questions about the city and the differences in real estate in various areas. Eventually, we rented our first few years and then purchased our residence and then a rental property. James handled all of those transactions and managed everything beautifully from start to finish. James is extremely knowledgeable, personable and has become a dear friend as well. I highly recommend him!

James is my first choice when it comes to choosing a real estate agent in this town! There are many who will promise you anything but will not always deliver! James flies under the radar; he is modest, discreet and conducts your business quietly. Your business is his business and you are his #1 priority while working with him. He is modest and unassuming- not pretentious or self-impressed. He is competitive but works cooperatively and patiently with other agents and is respected and held in high regard by peers and coworkers. He is patient with clients and listens! I think this is one of the big reasons for his continued success year after year and he continues to be among the top 1% of Coldwell Banker agents nationwide!

"We were so fortunate to have James as our agent for the recent sale of our family home. From preparation for the open house to the close of escrow, James was there to guide us through the process. His knowledge, expertise, and attention to detail helped us negotiate the best possible home price. He is a total professional! Our family would highly recommend James to anyone interested in buying or selling a home.”

I have had the good fortune to work with James Hancock buying and selling homes for over 25 years. First and foremost, my principle residence just North of Sunset on the border of BH & West Hollywood. Plus a number of spec projects throughout West Hollywood (purchases and sales) and rental properties that secured positive and lengthy results. James is one of the most honest, reliable and trustworthy agents I have had the pleasure to work with and call my friend. I would not hesitate to recommend him and often reach out to him for advice and guidance. He is always there for me and I am confident he always will be.

James is by the far the best agent I know. He not only found me a great house in a very tough sellers’ market, he worked out a great deal and also arranged my financing for me. He knows the LA market very well. I don’t know when I would have found a house that fit my needs without his help.

We have known James for 10+ years. We find him very experienced with real estate – pricing, staging and contract language but also importantly the “art of the deal”. We have worked with him several times and highly recommend him.

I have known James Hancock personally for over a decade. James is well versed in the real estate market and I knew right away that when it was time to purchase my first home, he would be the perfect person. James is very professional, attentive to detail and easy to work with. The unique thing about James is that he is one of the most personable agents I have come across. He has exceptional customer service and works diligently to meet the needs of his clients. I am grateful for his time and efforts in making my first experience as a buyer go as smoothly as possible. I would recommend him to my friends and family!
