The Jim Bottrell Team of Ardent Real Estate Services is a real estate company founded by Jim Bottrell, a former Major in the USMC. In real estate, just like in the Marine Corps, INTEGRITY, Leadership, Discipline, and a very strong work ethic are critical for obvious reasons. You need somebody you can trust, somebody that will lead you through the process, and somebody that will work hard and be smart for you. You can accept no substitutions. The Bottrell Team is here to serve you.
While many agents will promise to sell your home, the reality of the real estate market is that this simply doesn’t always happen. Even if the home does eventually sell, the homeowner, many times, end up with a selling price for less than what they may have been led to believe.
“I always leave feedback on services I receive and I am so pleased to be able to share my experience working with The Jim Bottrell Team. We were looking to move to be closer to family and have our children attend school with their cousins. This was our first home purchase and we were pretty nervous. We had talked with a few other realtors but decided to go with the Jim Bottrell Team because of their knowledge, their sincerity, enthusiasm, constant communication, honesty, and patience. We had a deadline to meet in our search as our children were going to be starting school and we had specific things we were looking for in a forever home so there were many challenges and they were all met with ease! We found our home and were moved in before school started and I must say it was pretty amazing! If you are looking for a team that exceeds your expectations and does what they promise, contact the Jim Bottrell Team!” -Stephanie
“I was looking around new to the area when I got set up on an appointment with The Jim Bottrell Team. We interviewed several agents but there was only one that really stood out. What we learned from that process was that we were wasting our time interviewing other agents. The Jim Bottrell Team took time, had patience, gave us knowledge and insight every step of the way. We not only gained a mentor and help, but we also gained a lifelong friend who genuinely cared about my family and me and our best needs were always ahead of their own. I had no hesitation to hire The Jim Bottrell Team and they immediately had an action plan for me to assure that I could find something within my price range that would fit my family’s needs. They scheduled showings, helped us get financing advice/help, as well as negotiated every aspect of our transaction. Everything was always what was in OUR best interest and The Jim Bottrell Team had soon negotiated our buying price and terms to ensure we had our First home and Dream home in a timely manner within 30 days so my kids could start attending school in our new area without wasting too much time. I wasn’t in a hurry to move however, The Jim Bottrell Team showed us how much we were throwing away on rent and we decided to go ahead and trust them throughout the entire process and could not be more thankful or happy! They had a process and systems for everything including the offer they created which won the seller’s heart over and won us the home we wanted so badly as well. We would recommend The Jim Bottrell Team to anyone we know and are so thankful we used them to purchase our first home which has an incredible view of the entire city and plenty of space for my kids to run around and play. The level of professionalism and expertise we got from working with The Jim Bottrell Team was something that we never could have imagined and now I am a more knowledgeable homeowner thanks to them.” -Cara
“After a long time in our community, we had to move as our family had expanded and we had outgrown our home. We were referred to The Jim Bottrell Team amongst other agents. After meeting with Jim Bottrell, we were extremely impressed with the level of care, time, and attention that he and the rest of the team are willing to dedicate to their clients. My husband and I own our business and we simply do not have time for inconvenience, inefficiency, and the worst of all – “do-overs”. Importantly, we wanted to ensure a transaction where things were done quickly and correctly, the first time. We decided on The Jim Bottrell Team because of their track record and, honestly speaking, because of other clients’ experiences. As it turns out, the reviews were accurate. The Jim Bottrell Team had all of the systems, techniques, and track record to ensure success. As many others have said, they had a plan, one that was written down, and they worked the plan. Jim and the team’s experience, support, and guidance were instrumental in ensuring the entire process was timely and effective. Their pre-marketing campaign worked perfectly and the first weekend we had multiple offers on our home. The Jim Bottrell Team used their three-stage negotiation system (they explained this to us) and we had the ability to choose the correct buyer with the correct financing and the best agent. Yes, the Buyers paid over the asking price too! We closed on time, problems were handled, and we were able to move on with the next stage of our lives. Overall, The Jim Bottrell Team is a true professional and organized team. We could not possibly be happier with The Jim Bottrell Team and you will be too!” -Sarah
“After having two different agents fail to sell my home over the course of a year, I was tired of being inconvenienced with people going in and out of my home and not receiving any offers at all. After interviewing a few different agents, I hired the Jim Bottrell Team to sell my home. Immediately things were different. First, they had a plan! A plan that was significantly more detailed than what the other agents were doing. The agents that I previously hired seemed to me like they were simply taking some pictures, writing a sentence or two in the description, posting it to the internet, and hoping that some other agent would bring along a buyer for my home. The Jim Bottrell Team was very different from that right from the beginning. They spent a lot of time showing me the levels of how they market homes, what their strategies were, and the specifics of how they negotiate offers. It really was surprised that they have so many levels of detail but then again not so surprising when you look at how many more homes they sell over the average agent. The Jim Bottrell Team really does it differently than everybody else. Within 10 days the Jim Bottrell Team had negotiated a full-price offer on my home. I was really surprised. The Jim Bottrell Team sold my home in just 10 days when others had failed to sell it for nearly a year. I learned that choosing the right agent really does make a difference! I highly recommend hiring the Jim Bottrell Team to sell your home. After going through what I did, I really wish I would have hired them the first time. That would have saved me a lot of hassle and heartache. Call The Jim Bottrell Team. You will be glad you did.” -Olga
I was referred to the Bottrell Team by my close friend who bought her home through them last year, she highly recommended them. I was really scared being a first-time home buyer and had so many questions and concerns. After finding the property I liked my agent jumped on the phone and contacted the listing agent right away to find out they were in multiple counters and were minutes away from accepting an offer. She was able to successfully negotiate and submit my offer quickly and not only did I win the multiple counters but I also got $10,000 seller credit and was able to purchase my home with 0 down with my VA loan and closed escrow and received my keys in 20 days! They made the process so smooth and educated me so much about my first home and investment. I would highly refer them to anyone buying a home especially if it’s your first time, they will literally hold your hand through the whole process. Thank you, guys! -Kassandra
“So we were randomly driving to the San Marcos area because it was midway between Camp Pendleton and Miramar. My husband and I are dual-active service members and would be working at each base. My husband looks up realtors online when he comes across one that was nothing but 5-star reviews. We take a chance and just stop by without notice. It was the best decision we could have done. We got a chance to meet Jim and some of his team that first day even though we had no appointment and were a surprise. We spoke about the things we were looking for and he listened and gave us information about the California market. After that, we got a chance to work with Craig and it took off. We found a home quickly and he was always available for questions or concerns. The Jim Bottrell team is a family and you feel like you are a part of the family. The experience doesn’t end after purchasing a house it’s a genuine friendship and family atmosphere that is developed. We highly recommend them it has been a true blessing!!!” -Natalie
“The Jim Bottrell Team Instant Cash Offer is REAL! As a recent New York resident, I found myself in an interesting situation with a home in Southern California that I wanted to sell. It’s hard to pick a realtor when there is no way to meet them face to face. I was introduced to The Jim Bottrell Team by a trusted friend. I’m glad I was. They were terrific. They facilitated the transition from the outgoing tenants and kept me informed all along the way. Once the tenant was out and we were able to view the condition of the home (The Jim Bottrell Team sent me pictures). We then reviewed the marketing options for the home as well as discussed the overall condition of the market. Given the situation I was in, The Jim Bottrell Team gave me three options as to how to sell my home: 1. Do all repairs and sell for full retail (or more). 2. Do limited repairs and sell for probably a little under retail 3. Take The Jim Bottrell Teams Instant Cash Offer and simply walk away from the home with a check in my hand. No hassles, no worries. After some thought, I opted for the Instant Cash Offer. I had things to do and I needed to get on with my life. As promised, The Jim Bottrell Team closed escrow in exactly 10 days and there were no adjustments made to the price, no requests for repairs made. The only things that happened were the exact things that they promised: They paid the agreed-upon price for the home and they closed escrow in 10 days. I really appreciate The Jim Bottrell Team for all they did. They made a very difficult situation extremely easy and they did everything they said they would do. I’d highly recommend The Jim Bottrell Team to anybody looking to buy or sell a home. I have never encountered a real estate team that runs as they do. Thanks!” -RCH
