About Jim the Realtor

Hello, and Welcome!

I became a realtor in 1984, earned my broker’s license in 1988, and started Klinge Realty in 2003.  Wife Donna and daughter Kayla are also realtors, and we specialize in North San Diego County’s coastal region (La Jolla to Carlsbad).  In 2005, I starting writing a daily blog where I chronicle the current market conditions and demonstrate how we do our business.

We want to help you, and are happy to discuss your situation!

I aggressively market my listings on the internet, especially with video tours.  I have sold homes to buyers who have never seen the home in person – they bought directly off my videos!

Unlike the big realtor teams who have assistants/trainees do the heavy lifting, I do the work myself.  For example, I believe sellers deserve to have the best salesman handling buyer and agent calls – so I answer my own phone.

I also believe strongly that sellers deserve open-market exposure in order to achieve top dollar.  You won’t see me doing shady off-market deals.

You may have noticed that there are no rules or guidelines on how to handle bidding wars.  I have specific strategies for winning!

You can call or text my cell at (858) 997-3801, or email me at klingerealty@gmail.com to see how I can help – I’m happy to discuss your situation and offer my assistance.

Select your realtor carefully – agents should be able to demonstrate their value. The blog will give you good insight about my expertise.
