Below are just a few of the kind words expressed by my past clients:


We have known and worked with James for several years and many transactions. We have stuck with him because of his exceptional level of professionalism as well as his pleasant personality. He always goes the extra mile and knows how to complete complex deals smoothly and on time. He has never let  us down in the slightest way. If you like working and dealing with someone who has a "winner" mentality, he's your agent

James was great to work with. He helped us find a home that fit all the requirements we were looking for. He is very hard working, his years of experience is what helps him thrive.

James Malsch's extensive experience and contacts with builders and other professionals in the industry made the short sale of my property in West Seattle quick, seamless and smooth. He is a pleasure to work with and I have the utmost confidence in his knowledge and abilities, which is extremely  important when dealing with an otherwise stressful situation. I feel enormously comfortable recommending his services to anyone looking for a realtor

James Malsch was excellent at showing me houses. He is very knowledgable about the Seattle market and very personable ! While I haven't made a purchase decision yet, I will definitely go with him when time comes. Thank you James !

James has shown me houses recently, and it's a pleasure to work with him. He is knowledgeable, hard-working, and great to interact with! He knows details of houses I would normally gloss right over, which explains why he's the expert. Each house has its own unique story, and James does a great job  of helping you see how a house can then become your home

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Shoreline, WA.

Hey Everyone! My name is Brandon and I live in Eau Claire, Wi but I just bought a house in Shoreline, Wa. I want you to know that buying a house isn’t easy but it is made harder when you live half way across the country. I contacted James Malsch online and he got back to me the same day. I flew out to Seattle to look for a house. I had 4 days of house hunting set aside. James said he would help me everyday all day. On the first day we started at 1:30pm. We looked at 14 houses that day. We finished the day by going back to a house we had seen earlier (so really 15 stops) and decided that we wanted to buy that house. James contacted the necessary people and we had a deal in place the next day.

James blew me away with his knowledge of the housing market and the city. Most importantly I felt like James had my best interest in mind the whole time. I am taking the time to fill this out because he was that great! He made something that should be stressful and some what difficult and made it simple and enjoyable! So not only will I recommend him to you but I am going to take time to publicly thank him right now. Thank you so much James

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Ravenna, Seattle, WA.

James did a great job helping me find and buy an apartment. A very well established veteran of the Greater Seattle area, James can give you an unrivaled run down of pretty much any aspect of the property that you’re interested in. If he doesn’t know the answer off the top of his head (which isn’t often), he’ll make sure to dig it up and get back to you ASAP. James also goes to great lengths to ensure you have all the up to date information on the property you want to buy and that you understand the purchasing process from start to finish. Finally, James does a great job helping you prepare to move in and get all of your paperwork in order. He knows all the people you need to know to get settled in your new home from the home inspectors to home owners insurance agents. In summary, if you’re looking for a friendly agent who will make your house hunting a great experience from start to finish, James Malsch is your man. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate agent in Seattle.

Bought a home in 2013 in First Hill, Seattle, WA 98101.

We were in a bidding war for a condo on Eastlake in Seattle. James helped us write up an offer and used his negotiating skills so that we were able to win the bid! We ended up selling the property 2 years later, and made a nice profit. He spent time to help us understand the process and what we needed to do so that we would be chosen to purchase the high demand condo. Our experience was A+ and we will use James for our next home purchase.

Sold a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $525K in Wallingford, Seattle, WA.

James was representing a high-quality seller. Everything was very transparent. And he knew people – lenders, inspectors, escrow agents – who were on the top of their game and we got the deal done expeditiously in spite of my lack of expertise and experience with property sales.

Showed home in 2009 in Belltown, Seattle, WA 98121.

James has taken me through several properties I have considered, he has also counseled me on properties in other areas I have contemplated as investment purchases. Since he has been in the industry since 1989 and has done a great deal of recurring training I feel he is an expert in his field and therefore I fully trust his judgement.

Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $625K in Ballard, Seattle, WA.

We used James to purchase our current home in Ballard. James took us on a couple day-long home viewing tours through the process and always came prepared with places to visit that met our criteria. His knowledge of the area was impressive. It was James who ultimately found the house that we purchased. He saw it come to market, checked it out on his own and called me immediately that it would be something perfect for us. Sure enough, we loved it and made an offer on the day we saw it! James has been available for us even after the purchase, helping us get our mailbox installed properly with the city and working with our builder on some follow up items. I would be happy to recommend James to anyone!

Bought a Single Family home in 2008 in Green Lake, Seattle, WA.

James helped me purchase my home at Greenlake and he was willing to go above and beyond to look up the parcel information with the city and got me all the pertinent information I needed. He was instrumental in helping me purchase the lot next the same home later from the city. He later sold the lot after it was permitted and ready to build. He is super responsive and quick to do whatever he can to help you. I would highly recommend him!

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $300K in Edmonds, WA.

James was great in helping me sell and purchase a home in 2011. He went beyond my expectations in finding the right place for our family.

During our efforts of buying a home, the market was just beginning to recover from the economic downturn. There were lots of homes in foreclosure and as such in disrepair, etc. Due to his experience in home sales, James was able to he us quickly filter out the listings and narrow our search to homes that were worthy of our consideration.

Also, at time of closure, James saw through every detail of the inspection and the resolution of any issues that may have arisen due to the inspection results. He made sure that these were reliably resolved.

You will find James to both professional and personable. We have been fortunate to have benefitted from his services since the year 2000, when we moved to the Seattle area. Since then we have sold and purchased 3 homes – all with James’ help. We will certainly do so again when and if that opportunity arises again.

Thanks James!

Well, today is the day! My girls and I move into our new home! So, I want to extend a big thank you for all the great service and help that you and Vicki provided during the whole purchase process.

I just want you both to know that I appreciate the level of professionalism and also personal consideration that you extended to me and my family. So, Thanks!!

I will certainly call upon your company in the future if I ever need to buy or sell another home.

Have a great holiday weekend. See ya! You have been exemplary!  Thanks.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Ballard, Seattle, WA.

I hired James Malsch (yes, he and I are related) to help me find a condo. I started looking in fairly rural areas, as I didn’t think I could afford anything in the city. With James’ knowledge and network, I found I was able to buy a condo in the city that not only met all my requirements but had a location that far exceeded what I initially was willing to settle for. I have been in my condo for over a year and am very happy with my purchase. Through James’ help and knowledge, I was able to purchase a home in a very desirable area at a very reasonable price. I have recommended James to others in the past as I personally know him to be a person of integrity who has a very strong work ethic. Now, I would highly recommend him to any one seeking a friendly, knowledgeable, and hard working real estate agent, based on my positive experience as his client.

Bought a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $375K in North Beacon Hill, Seattle, WA.

James helped us in purchasing our first home. He showed us some good areas of town where home prices were reasonable and the area developing. James was very detailed in his selection of places that would fit our needs and took the time to go over the specifics of the property and area. James also provided us with resources for finding an excellent lender who would help us through our first home mortgage. He was very knowledgeable about the process, paper work and did an excellent job securing the home for us. We are both very happy with the experience and would recommend him again!

Bought a Single Family home in 1999 for approximately $125K in North End, Tacoma, WA.

I had an excellent “real estate” experience purchasing a home in north Tacoma through James Malsch. Though Tacoma is an hour drive south of his office his knowledge of local neighborhoods was helpful. He spent many hours searching through available listings and showing me these homes. When I decided to purchase he negotiated a deal I was very happy with. His answers to my questions were thorough, he gave advise on aspects I had not considered and was easy to communicate with. I have since used his services to assist in finding tenants for my rental property. I am pleased with both experiences.
