As a native Californian, I am grateful to call this my home state! California offers so many opportunities and experiences and the northern and southern parts of the state provides a distinct lifestyle and environment. Having grown up in Los Angeles in the San Fernando Valley during my early years and the San Francisco Bay Area for the past 25+ years, let my experiences help you make your move! Welcome!
I grew up in the San Fernando Valley part of Los Angeles, known commonly as "the valley" in Canoga Park. Attending all local schools, I finished with Los Angeles Pierce College and University of Southern California, majoring in business and accounting. From here I started a family horticulture business in Morgan Hill, a 10 acre plant farm catering to landscape contractors, retail and whole growers, municipalities and other end users. I sure loved nature and the blooms in the spring time and miss is a bit, however, I certainly have enjoyed working in my garden!
I have in the real estate business since 1987, first as a loan officer in Sunnyvale, then some larger and active firms in the Santa Clara county before my current office, which was at one time RE/MAX Valley Properties before it changed brands to Altera Real Estate in 2010.
Helping my clients and achieving their desired outcome is my passion. There are so many details involved in a real estate transaction so I pride my self in taking care fo the details. I have been helping my clients successfully in the Santa Clara, Alameda and San Mateo counties and look forward to many more years. I am grateful for my team of dedicated professionals who like the real estate business and industry.
I have lived in the Bay Area since 1982 and enjoy all that the bay area has to offer, from the beaches to the wine county, to the mountains and oceans to the south bay heat. I have been married since 1994 to Diane and we two adorable cats! My interests include golf, travel, sports, outdoors, personal and spiritual growth, gardening, reading, learning, enjoying all kinds of culture and foods, fitness, investing, islands, connecting with wonderful people, and more. I am a season ticket holder with the San Jose Sharks NHL hockey team and San Jose Repetory Theater. I am an adventurer of life. I believe we should work hard and play hard!!! Enjoy... life is too short to waste. To learn more about me, go to http://jamesendo.brandyourself.com/

" bought both a townhouse, and a later a house, both in Cupertino, with James Endo's help. Both had multiple offers. The house even had 63 offers. Unbelievably, with James' help and advice, I was able to buy both properties. I did not have the highest offer in either case. This was possible because James did his research and told me what conditions in the offers that would be attractive to the seller besides just the price. He was always very professional, energetic and positive. Fun to be around. I highly recommend James for anyone looking to purchase a home in the South Bay Area."

"We really appreciate the time you spent reviewing what needed to be done prior to listing the property. The list of qualified resources you provided was particularly helpful. Your recommendations for a contractor, handyman, carpet cleaner, and trash person were great. It was a pleasure working with you and your support team. We highly recommend you to anyone looking for a real professional."

-J & T Bills, Los Gatos, Client
"We have used many Realtors over the years and have found that the majority are working for themselves only. You have tried to give us the most benefits available and have looked out for our interests all along the way. We do not hesitate to recommend you to any of our friends or to have anyone contemplating using your services call us. You are the very first Realtor we have used twice."
-R & F Barry, San Jose, Client
"James specializes in selling properties that others can't and he's good at it. We came to James because we were frustrated with our situation, trying to sell our home for over six months without results. One month later, we sold our home. James is a dedicated, results driven and experienced Realtor. His open communications, honesty, can-do attitude, and successful marketing strategies will help you to sell your property for top dollar in a timely manner."
