We recently closed escrow and purchased our new home with Jim and the Zakhar Team. This was hands down the most efficient home buying process we have ever experienced. We had complete trust in Jim from the start and the peace of mind that we were in excellent hands. Jim is extremely knowledge and professional which gave us a comfort knowing he was always looking out for our best interest. Our request very specific, down to a specific neighborhood, home track and floor plan. Jim is a Real Estate genius and he found us our dream home by reaching out to the neighborhood on the street we wanted to live on, he quickly made contact with a homeowner and negotiated a sales price. He listed our current home and we closed escrow on the two homes on the same day, just 30 days later. We sold and bought our dream home seamlessly. We purchases our dream home and its all thanks to Jim and the Zakhar team. THANK YOU 🙂

We have been personal friends with the Zakhar’s for many years, so when it was time to sell our house we didn’t hesitate to call Jim Zakhar. We had heard Jim was a masterful negotiator. He exceeded that title for our house. He sold our house after 1 day on the market for over asking price. He was so patient and helpful during the 6 months prior when we were getting the house ready. He put our mind at ease with a pocketful of sources for any renovations needed and provided excellent advice every time we asked. I highly recommend using the Zakhar Team to sell/buy your home.

Jim sold us our home in San Juan Capistrano 8 years ago. He was so patient and did not give up on us, We probably looked at few dozen homes. with him. He recently sold it again due to husband’s passing. One of the hardest transactions he has ever done, and stressful due to issues caused from flooding in the area. He worked so hard for me. In addition he helped my husband update and sell my in-laws house in Yorba Linda after they passed. Great job and it sold quickly. And our house we had in Carlsbad he got on the market and it sold in about a month. Lastly to say, I will never use another company and have recommended him to friends in and out of the area. He is going to help me as well as my son when we are ready to purchase again next year. Thank you Jim

If you are looking to buy a new home in the Orange County region than Jim Zakhar is your guy! Jim took the wheel in guiding my wife and I through our search and help us land our first home in beautiful Mission Viejo. During a crazy time in our lives… dealing with our first baby on the way, a pandemic, and a ultra competitive market, Jim was able to be our secret weapon when it came to locating and securing our dream home to start our family. He and his team have worked this market for over 30+ years and the experience he brings with him is noticeable. It gave me great confidence knowing that Jim was on our team when it came down to closing the deal for our home purchase. I highly recommend Jim and his team if you’re looking to buy a home. You won’t regret it!
