James Zombola was born and raised in the Austin area. This is where he met his wife and now where they are raising their three daughters. They can't see calling anywhere else home! He loves his community and is proud to be able to serve his fellow residents and help them achieve their real estate goals.

He began his career working with the area's largest home builders, where he was a project manager for several local and national subcontractors. When he began working in the construction industry, he discovered his passion for helping people find their dream homes.

His experience gives him invaluable insight into the Austin market and what makes a great home. Whether it's helping someone sell their current home or buy their dream home, he guides his clients through each step of the process, helping them make smart decisions in order to maximize their investments.

He and his family are very involved in their church community. When James is not out selling real estate, you may just find him getting 18 holes in at his local golf course!

This review is way overdue! I reached out to James via Yelp when me and my husband were planning on purchasing our first home. Our situation was a little different because I had already found the new build I already wanted. I needed help getting out of an apartment lease which James was able to facilitate. James really helped us when making the offer (below list price) and getting a bunch of extras added in (sod, blinds, etc) that we would have never known we could. I really liked that James was always available and extremely responsive to text. He came for all our walk throughs and was very thorough and finding things that needed fixing. He also was able to recommend people for the inspection as well as home owners insurance which saved us a ton of money. It was so nice to have those things taken of my plate. I definitely would recommend James to anyone buying their first home!

James helped me find a house in Pflugerville that I am very happy with. He is a very knowledgeable realtor and his background in construction really shows when going through houses. He showed me how to tell good quality from not so good quality. He pointed things out they may need repaired or could be replaced and helped associate costs with those projects. Also just a great guy to cruise around the city with looking at houses. James was very responsive throughout the entire process and very flexible in working around my schedule. I would recommend James' services to anyone looking for a great realtor in the Austin area.

I chose James as my realtor because he was listed online as being one of the best realtors in Georgetown, TX. They were right. He was wonderful to work with. I didn't know much about Georgetown, I just knew this was the town I wanted to live in. He taught me a lot about the area and introduced me to some great people. He was very patient and listened to what I was looking for. He was very supportive and encouraging, especially after I lost the first bidding war on my dream home (I ended up getting the house on the second bidding war.) :-D I highly recommend James for anyone looking for a home in the Georgetown area. Thank you James!

SHORT VERSION: Use James as your realtor, you will not regret it! LONG VERSION: We were moving to Georgetown as my husband was getting stationed at Fort Hood. We were given a months notice of the move, and my husband had his heart set on buying our first house. We were given two recommendations of local realtors, but neither of them felt right. I wanted someone who really knew the area because we were challenged time-wise in our house search. I found James online and sent him a note explaining what our situation was. With five days notice, he set up listings for us to look at and then organized 10 houses for us to see in the one day we had available to search - amazing! He gave us honest opinions about the houses, and more importantly tips and advice as this was our first time searching for a home. Among the many houses we saw, he also made time to show us around the town and used landmarks to help us get our bearings - above and beyond what we had expected. We put it an offer that evening and were very fortunate to have it accepted. James then coordinated all of the inspections we wanted done which was so incredibly helpful as both my husband and I were not only out of state, but living in two different states making any sort of coordinating and planning extra difficult. James is always on top of everything, he sent us reminders of things we needed to do and I can't imagine we would be in our house today if it weren't for all of the work he did for us. We are truly thankful and feeling very lucky to have found someone who clearly cares about getting the right house for his clients, not just making a sale. If you want someone who will go above and beyond your expectations, use James as your realtor!

James was great to work with. He's down to earth, very attentive to detail. Found what we were looking for, and within our budget. Any kind of questions or concerns were quickly answered or resolved. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home.

James listed my house and it sold the same day as the listing went up. Thanks to James for a great job with the video preview/web site and guidance on helping me set a competitive price. James is very knowledgeable of the process, listings and sales in the area and was very personable and responsive during the closing process. I highly recommend James!

With the Working with James Zombola, he exceeded our expectations in our home buying expereience. James was readily available to pay attention to the details of what we wanted, friendly, professional, and helped so much in the entire process of finding our dream home. We were impressed with how easy the entire process was. But we aren't surprised as we believe God led us to the right person who wasn't just out to "make a sale" but was genuine in considering our budget, location, and desires in a home. Best thing is, we bought our home under asking, and had added bonuses because of his integrity and sincerity. I'd reccomend him to anyone looking for an honest person who'd strive to meet your desires in their real estate needs.

It was a great experience purchasing a house through James Zombola. James is a very detailed oriented professional. He went above and beyond to ensure our needs were addressed. Purchasing our home was an excellent experience and would recommend him to anyone.

We found James on Yelp based on his reviews. We first tried an agent from Keller Williams that was very nice in person but had all kinds of issues so we had to move. James is an institution in Georgetown, lots of people know him since he is from here. A mother in our daughter´s dance class used him, we´ve met others that know him. Which means a lot because he has both a good reputation to protect and others will act proper to protect their reputation. We originally thought of buying a preexisting home but switched to a semi-custom new build. At the time, we wondered if a RE was really needed for a new build since the price is ¨fixed.¨ But after going through the experience, that´s not the way to look at it. The builder´s agent works for the builder and against you if interests don´t align. While the base home price is fixed, it's the other issues that make a huge difference. Initial purchase. One builder had a lower base price but lower base features, which required upgrading, increasing the final price, which James helped us compare. Then, James discussed which add ons add value to the home $ and which are a loss. Build process. James was there to represent us in a process that did not go smooth. The builder had several excuses, such as they had verbally promised something but it wasn´t in writing. Which James took care of. Or delays. Without James we wouldn´t have known how far to push. Final close. The builder had left several items not to our liking. James was helpful in pushing back to help us get what we needed. And if we incurred extra costs due to the builder´s failure, which at one point seemed possible, he would have gotten it fixed. While it costs nothing to have a RE for a new build, I would have paid out of pocket for James, it was completely worth it. Highly recommend him.

James was SO helpful with buying my first home. I had no idea where to even start, so I looked for realtors online and found James' positive reviews and gave him a call. He met me that same day and helped me find the perfect house! He came to the inspections and helped point out issues with the home that I never would have known to look for and spent time answering all of my questions prior to closing. I could not have asked for a better realtor! If you are thinking about buying a home or don't know where to start, give him a call!

James was so great to work with. He was kind, friendly, returned all of our emails and calls within hours. He was professional yet personable. We had a very specific type of home we were looking for with a large lot, and James was so patient in showing us many houses. He also sold our home in 6 HOURS! I highly recommend James if you are looking for a realtor.

Dang, if you're searching on Yelp for an Austin agent, stop right here. This is the man! James is an exceptional agent who works for you and your best interest. We moved to Texas from out of state in 2014 and after paying rent for two years, we decided to buy our first home ever with James leading the way. We gave him our preferences and he was able to produce several listings immediately. We closed on a BRAND NEW home well under our targeted budget. I have to say, he really took the time to find us the perfect home. He is extremely professional, honest, considerate, and he stood up for us when challenges arose. He will respond to your emails, calls, and text messages within 24 hours. He is very knowledgeable as a real estate agent and the market. Does careful research to maximize your investment. Subject Matter Expert in all things related to bringing the first time buyer peace of mind. Thanks James :)

My wife and I were tough customers and James was patient and provided solution that satisfied our needs. He has a great personality which made the process easy. James ultimately helped us find our dream home.

We met James by accident. We weren't really "looking" for a house, just feeling out various areas. We instantly felt very comfortable with James. He was well aware of the fact that we weren't in any immediate need and was still willing to meet with us on a holiday weekend. We discussed our needs and he sent us daily updates (even when we changed needs, areas etc). The communication with James was immediate and we were never left wondering. We felt absolutely zero pressure. He assisted us with a few minor obstacles and got our purchase closed in 3 weeks. After closing we shared a wonderful lunch together and he presented us with the most remarkable "gift" of a hamper loaded with all sorts of stuff that is immediately needed prior to actual moving (like cleaning supplies, beverages, snacks and toilet paper)

We contacted James a couple of months prior to putting our home on the market. He gave us good advice on what we needed to do to get ready to sell. A couple of months later, James listed our home the weekend before Christmas. Our home sold in 2 days for $11,000 over asking price. He was always helpful and responsive and great to work with. Thanks James!!

Where do I start with James! LOL. I'm not even sure how I can describe all he's done for us because its frankly gone beyond the scope of his job as a real estate agent. We met James by chance after requesting to view a home on realtor.com. We immediately liked his style and personality and decided to work with him full-time to sell our home and purchase a new home (we just closed today, yipeee). He is one of the most friendly, understanding and authentic people I have ever met and made the entire home buying/selling experience about as seamless as I can imagine it being. We were in a pickle because we needed to sell our home before buying a new one and in THIS crazy housing market, a "contingency" is just unattractive and difficult. We learned that the hard way when we put an offer on the first house we loved and didn't make the cut. Thankfully, with James spot on pricing and beautiful photos etc, he sold our home in TWO DAYS! He got us an outstanding deal that we just couldn't believe. We were baffled by how savvy he was in negotiating things for our sale. We were extremely happy to say the least! James was always available when we needed him or had any questions about the process of buying. A home popped up on his radar and before the listing agent even had all the photos, he had scheduled a showing for us. He knew we would love the home and he was right lol. Before midnight that night, he had written up an offer and submitted it. We were so fast even the sellers were shocked. We ended up getting this home (we are SOOOO excited) and we sincerely feel that it was because he was very punctual and attentive that we were able to be first in line. The home received many other offers but with James' help we got it all done. Beyond all of this, James has become a friend. He golfs with my husband and is truly an enjoyable person to be around. We are so glad we met him! Definitely will recommend him to anyone who needs a realtor as you will not find a more attentive real estate agent. He makes you feel like you are his only client!

James has been an amazing partner with us through our Austin home purchase. It was a complete lucky day for us when I clicked on realtor.com and received a call back from James! He knew about that property and after asking a few questions figured out what we were looking for. He quickly searched and sent us some potential homes and we fell in love with the first one he showed us! He worked late to get the offer submitted and then worked to get the deal done. He texted, called and emailed whenever we had questions and was available around the clock. James was a pleasure to work with and we consider him our first friend in Austin. I would certainly recommend him to anyone.

For my family, James helped me achieve the impossible. I had talked to countless agents that talked a lot of hype about helping with credit challenges but ultimately couldn't deliver. Then I met James. He was such a genuine nice guy and he had complete confidence that he could get it done, so I gave him a chance before signing a lease. 3 1/2 months later I closed on my dream home! James and his team go above and beyond! They keep communication open and James works hard to make sure you find the perfect home for your family. I am so thankful for James and his willingness to go the extra mile!
