“I met Russ and Lee Jacobs about 2 months AFTER they helped me purchase our new home in Southern California. As part of a corporate relocation, I was still living and working in the midwest while trying to find a home out west. After speaking to Lee on the phone the first time, I knew I had the right partner to help us in such a unique circumstance. It was evident to me that Lee and Russ had my interests in mind from the very start. This is essential any time you are buying a home, but it is especially so when you know that you won't be physically viewing the property. Russ and Lee were not only my eyes and ears, but also my hands, feet and brain at times!

Russ and Lee took every measure to ensure that our family's needs would be met. They researched parks, schools and neighborhoods in such detail that I could not even begin to ask a question that they didn't have the answer to. As part of their methods, they video taped a tour of the perspective home so that me and my family could view every closet, drawer and nook as if we were their ourselves. This worked wonderfully and it gave us a much better appreciation than mere pictures could have done.

During the purchase process it was also important to me to have a partner overseeing the repairs, inspections, etc while I was away. Russ took great care to keep me informed and to educate me on all of my options. It was as if I had my own personal assistant living at the house to keep things moving. I could not have asked for a more dedicated, thorough agent in this situation.

I highly recommend this wonderful team to anyone looking for their interests to be put first in this highly complex real estate market. I have relocated several times and it is my opinion that Russ and Lee are some of the best real estate agents in the business. Their integrity, thoughtfulness and rigor tell me more about who they are as people than any credential would (although they have those too). 

I recommend Russ and Lee Jacobs without reservation.”

“Lee and Russ spent a long time filtering and showing us properties. We were not easy to please as we really wanted more than we could afford. However, they kept going and finaly settled on the perfect home. Since then, we have become good friends with the Jacobs and value their company socially.

“Lee and Russ are consummate professionals. And they are not the typical real estate agents in that they are able to integrate their clients real estate needs with their overall financial situation. In other words, they don't just list or sell real estate. They provide services that are far more broad than that.”

“I met Lee Jacobs will viewing a home in a neighborhood we always dreamed about. In our intial conversation she mentioned that she built relationships. This stopped me in my tracks. I have been building relationships throughout my sales career. There was an immediate connection here.

I have known a fair amount of real estate agents in my years. None even come close to Lee and Russ Jacobs. These two know their business like no one I have every met! They are passionate about helping their clients (most of whom become very good friends).

They have an incredible wealth of knowledge concerning the real estate market. They have been doing this for so many years; that if I had to give them a business title it would be Chief Real Estate Officer. They are completely at ease with every aspect of the purchase/selling of a property. Both Lee and Russ are fighters too. They know what is best for the client and getting in their way is a big mistake. The mantra of "The customer comes first" was created by these two.

They are increadibly sincere and giving people! They will be our real estate agents for as long as they stay in the profession!

If you need some one to navigate the complex world of buying or selling a home, I recommend Lee and Russ above all others.

“Lee and Russ Jacobs are two of the most professional real estate agents that I have had the pleasure to work with. Each of their strengths compliments one another, to give the client a powerful real estate team that knows how to get the job done. I have had the pleasure to have the Jacobs represent me in three real estate transactions. Each of these transactions the Jacobs were able to negotiate on my behalf to get me exactly what I was looking for at the terms and conditions that were favorable for me. Not only are the Jacobs there for their clients during times of transactions, but have been available to me as well when I was looking for advice or their opinion on alternative investments as well. I wholeheartedlyrecommend the services of Lee and Russ Jacobs, to anyone that is looking to make an investment in real estate.”

“I have worked with Lee and Russ Jacobs, for a period of 5 years, both professionally and personally. The Jacobs created and implemented a "zero cost to the company" benefit for the employees at Linksys, which included a full service relocation benefit, discounted rates and fees across the board, and customized personal coaching to employees to meet their individual real estate needs. Their service has far exceeded my expectations as to their service, quality, follow up, and real estate knowledge. Employees and executives that have used their service have given them an extremely high rating, and continue to utilize and recommend their services to others. Personally, Lee and Russ have entered into 4 real estate agreements on my behalf and each one was completed flawlessly. In today's economy the real estate market is in turmoil and unpredictable, they continue to ensure the properties are marketed, listed, and sold in a timely manner. In addition, their services extend outside of Orange County, thru a hand picked professional network. I would recommend Lee and Russ for ANY real estate transaction that someone is contemplating. I would also encourage corporations to investigate the benefit that the Jacobs provide to employees at no cost to the Company. Karyn M. Evens, former Senior Director of Human Resources, Cisco - Linksys.”
