"Jim Ryan acted as our Realtor in connection with the sale of 2365 Oakcrest Drive in Sunrise East condominiums Palm Springs. Jim helped us arrive at the right selling price and was hands on throughout the entire process. He was incredibly conscientious and did an outstanding job as our Agent. We would not hesitate to recommend Jim to any of our neighbors and friends." - Myra and Jeff Halpern - May 16, 2011
"I have worked with Jim Ryan from Coldwell Banker (Palm Springs, CA) for the last 3 ½ years. Jim helped find and later handled a condo purchase in December 2004. He was extremely meticulous in his attention to details. In particular, his ability to listen to his clients is one of his greatest strengths as a Real Estate agent. My wife and I were very pleased with the condo we purchased under Jim’s guidance.
During the last 2 years, Jim has served as my rental agent for the same condo we purchased. Again, his attention to detail and quickly taking care of any issues that have arisen were greatly appreciated.
From both my wife’s and my perspective, Jim is a real gem when it comes to a Real Estate agent. He has the highest integrity and interactions with him are straight-forward. Of the many Real Estate Agents I have dealt with over the years, he is the best and I hope to continue my association with him in the future." - Luis Figueroa
"From the onset of my decision to purchase and accepting you to assist in this endeavor, I not only observed your professional ability and the exemplary manner in which you conducted business but as well, was very impressed with the way you took on your responsibility to show, inform, lead me through the various requirements and finalizing my purchase without “high pressure” or needless “mumble-jumble”. In all areas, you were concise, clear, and thorough with ready explanations and paperwork or referrals, as needed.
As in most cases involving purchases of similar magnitude, one would expect a certain amount of anxiety, misunderstanding, displeasure, loose ends, etc. You have, masterfully, avoided these headaches for me by paying close attention, especially to details and carrying through in all phases of your responsibilities. This has made this purchase a pleasant experience for me.
Please take this as coming from someone with quite a number of experiences with buying and selling properties. In no such past dealing has my association with a Realtor motivated me to write a letter of gratitude.
I sincerely thank you for your effectiveness in your profession. Keep up the good work. Wishing you good luck and success in the future." - Carolyn O. Reifsnyder
Jim Ryan is one of the best Real Estate professionals I have ever worked with. He knows Palm Springs and he was very good at knowing how to price our property and in estimating the amount of time it would take to sell it. In this very difficult market this is very impressive.
Jim gave us a strategy for selling our condo which included an action and communication plan. He was very concerned about working with our schedule and our need to be involved or not be involved in the many details in selling our property. I especially appreciated that the set a time to speak with me once a week and give us an update on the status of the property and the activities in the prior week. He always shared the advertising, promotions, number of showings and the follow up on interested parties. When we did have an interested party, he worked quickly to determine level of interest and how to proceed.
Jim kept us informed at every step in the process and he worked very diligently during the offer and final sale process. As with many sales in this market, we had a number of minor obstacles which he maneuvered quite well and got us to our final goal of a closed escrow. As the seller, we were very pleased and I know our buyers were pleased as well.
Jim is a true professional and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell residential property. In addition to everything else I have said, he is a great person and he was a joy to work with.
Jim made every effort to be an honest Realtor. He represented the seller, we did not have an agent when we met him at his open house, but we trusted that he would do a good job negotiating the deal that we wanted. We'd been looking at Palm Springs real estate for about three years off and on and we knew immediately, when we saw Jim's listing that it was the one. Jim did not disappoint.
Jim Ryan has a great network of competent professionals who made our job (buyers) as stress free as possible. He works with a mortgage broker who helped us obtain the type of mortgage we needed. Jim, the mortgage broker, the escrow company and title company worked in concert, as a team, all helping us to close quickly and efficiently. We've never seen so much paperwork, due to new regulations, so all of our questions about completing forms were answered buy the respective parties immediately, as if we were their sole clients. Jim coordinated everything overall and we can't say enough good things about him and his very professional manner and service.

It has been a few weeks since we took possession of our home and as we are reflecting on the process we want to thank you for all you did. Your first impression at an open house still is with us as you answered our questions in a very professional way and you maintained that even when I almost lost my temper when things got tuff during the process.
Jim, keep doing what you do in your own professional way and as I did already we will surely recommend you to anybody we meet who is ready to buy or sell.
Thank you and success,

I selected Jim Ryan for my Realtor because I sensed wonderful positive energy and an excellence in his descriptive vocabulary about my Mother's Palm Springs condo. I was not disappointed in this: three days after his office caravan- open house the condo sold. He was meticulous in his preparation of the property and in the paper work that accompanied the sale, continually exhibiting his upbeat, can-do approach. I highly recommend Jim.

We had owned our property in Palm Springs for over 10 years and during the later years witnessed the numerous open houses in our complex that were always held by Jim Ryan. I don't believe we ever saw a weekend go by that Jim wasn't on the job. When he sold our next door neighbors home in short order we knew that, when the day came, Jim would be our Agent. We were never disappointed! He worked extremely hard for us and in the end we successfully sold our home. We would whole-heartedly recommend Jim Ryan for any and all Real Estate needs! Thanks Jim for all your efforts.

I first worked with Jim Ryan in 2006 toward the purchase of my Palm Springs home. In the past seven years I have been involved in a total of three Real Estate transactions as either seller or buyer. In my experience Jim Ryan is the best Realtor I have ever worked with. Jim is scrupulously honest, his calm demeanor and professional expertise matched my personal needs in the momentous transaction a home purchase is.
I have been able to suggest Jim's guidance to others and in fact a good friend recently sold his home and bought a condo thru Jim. I have in the past, been hesitant to recommend my own Agents believing that everyone is different and will likely work best with is or her own choice, that I could, without hesitation recommend Jim speaks more than you can know to my faith in his excellence.

I first met Jim when we lived in the same condominium complex. When I was considering selling my condo, I contacted a friend who recommended him and listed my unit with him. I found him to be very personable, well informed, conscientious and loyal to his clients and company. I followed his lead as he guided and assisted each step, through pricing, staging, the OTB, negotiations, and escrow, and in the middle of the worst Real Estate Market in years he found a buyer for my home in record time, - less than one week and the first Open House, the sign was changed to "In Escrow" and "Sold". After the qiuck sale and close of escrow on my condo, I had nowhere to go! Then he guided me through the whole process in reverse. Finding my new home to purchase was not as quick and easy as the sale of my old place. I looked at many places, some twice before finding "the one" and again he was there for me every step of the way pointing out everything I needed to know. I'm very happy where I am now, but If I ever decide to sell or purchase or know anyone else who does, I've kept in touch with Jim and I'll know where to reach him.
