What Our Clients Say

I want to express my thanks and appreciation for Jason Kirklen. I recently needed someone to help me with my first 1031 exchange, selling a 9-unit apartment for a smaller property. Jason is knowledgeable, professional, efficient and a genuinely good person who quickly earned my trust. He patiently answered my many questions and was always available when I needed his expertise. He made me feel I was his only client. I feel fortunate to have found Jason. I will certainly recommend him to anyone needing a real estate professional.

My sister and I decided to sell a building we inherited years prior with another agent who grossly underpriced the property and forced us to accept an offer or pay their commission. When it came time to select an agent to sell our second building we did more homework and interviewed numerous nationwide firms as well as a few local ones. We selected Jason because he understood that we wanted to see what the real market value was after the offer had come in and been patient with us until his marketing process brought the right buyer to the table. He further continued to help by any means necessary to facilitate our exchange and answered every call and email until the process was completely done. I would highly recommend Jason, and you will be glad you choose him.

Jason has always been honest and fair. When it comes to the value of my apartment building and handling the transaction, he handled everything with great professionalism. Jason was always thinking two steps ahead making selling my building in South Gate very easy for me. He will be my go-to apartment guy going forward.

Over the years in owning apartments, agents call always trying to pitch something – buying, selling, what have you. Jason expressed a genuine interest in solving the problem of my building being in a poor location, which I did not even know. For years, I thought it was just the tenants, but Jason went to great length and cost to share crime rate information and how the crime rates surrounding my property were increasing and had been steady. After some time, I agreed to allow him to sell the property and it was a great decision. He was forthcoming about the exchange process and guided me through it with great ease for me. He was instrumental in finding me a replacement property that has been a joy to own. No one else will represent me when buying or selling apartments.

I represented a client as her legal counsel and recommend to her, and her brother they select Jason as their representation to sell their apartments in Newport Beach. I was very pleased with his level of diligence, perseverance, and honesty throughout the transaction. He updated us weekly with the level of activity and as offers came in. He gave us a comprehensive snapshot of how each offer compared to the others. I will use him again if I have any other Multi-Family questions.

Jason and I had been talking since I bought my Orange County Apartments, as I exchanged into Orange County form the San Gabriel Valley Area. He was always professional and had a great understanding of the market. I asked him to sell a building for me in Anaheim, and he gave me a value. I insisted that it was worth $50,000 more than his valuation. As time went by and we engaged with a great Exchange buyer from another broker the final sale price was within $2,000 of what Jason had told me it was worth. He was also able to find me a building to buy three doors down from a building I already owned making my management much easier.

I had been talking to Jason for quite some time, and I had always told him that if I wanted to sell, he would could bring me an offer and that I would represent myself. Jason honored his word in allowing me to represent myself in the transaction while bringing me a great buyer who gave me the price I wanted, plus being all cash and closed escrow in less than two months. The most impressive part was that I was out of the country for most of the transaction. Jason is very accommodating and would gladly work with him again in the future.

My wife and I are brokers currently in California and have been for many years. We originally got our licenses to represent ourselves in transactions in buying apartments. We did so for years until I purchased some units that Jason sold me in Anaheim. I thought I was good at my job at foreseeing problems and how to handle them, Jason not only could see them coming but then had the wherewithal to fix the lending issues that came up. He tracked down the original building permit form 1946, and the lending came together perfectly. He is diligent and honest.  I will be asking him to handle future sales for me. 

-Repeat client, Purchased, sold and exchange

I recently sold a 9-unit apartment building in Costa Mesa with Jason. He was able to get me ten offers and get me $75,000 over list price with an out-of-state exchange buyer from another agent in his office. Jason took charge and helped me sort out four code violations with the city as well as coordinate the entire repair of the mainline sewer back up in two of the units. His experience in problem-solving was amazing; he is a real pro. All of these problems were discovered during escrow, not only were they solved he kept the entire transaction on schedule without a hitch. If I buy or sell any apartments in California Jason will be involved.

I found Jason to be very detailed and accurate in his craft and have since used him in both buying and selling apartment buildings. The information and consultations he gives me are always spot on even when comparing it to what other agents advise. He is incredibly hardworking, diligent, and honest. If I am ever in question about my thoughts or what another agent tells me, I always ask him, and I know that I am getting the best recommendation. Even when it has been not in his favor, he has always told me the truth.

-Sold 10 Units in Long Beach

I recently acquired an apartment building through Jason for the fifth time. He has been very helpful in increasing my cash flow by 400% from where it was when I first met him. He will always be someone that I use going forward.

I bought an apartment building in Garden Grove from Jason, and I found him to be very trustworthy, detailed, and knowledgeable. When I am ready to buy or sell another building, I will give him my business.”

-Purchased 8 Units in Garden Grove

I used Jason to help us sell an office building and exchange into a coastal apartment building near where I currently own in Huntington Beach. He promptly explained why he wouldn’t be the best person to sell the office building and referred me to three different brokerage houses so I could have a few different options. I respected his honesty in telling me how he wasn’t the right person for this and that I could call him with any questions. He continued to follow up throughout the process of selling the Office Building and when we did finally close, Jason had shown us several apartments that fit our buying criteria. We bought one very quickly and closed escrow before our 45-day identification period was up. I thank Jason for being patient with us and his level of professionalism throughout the process.

“Jason recently helped me sell a five-unit building in Santa Ana. It was unique in that it was built in 1907. I had listed it previously with another broker and was not happy with the results and how they approached pricing and marketing the building. Jason has a nice practical view on these things, and I appreciated his direct, honest working style and candor in our dealings. He found me a buyer without listing the property. We had discussed that option, but I was not keen on listing it again so soon. I just offered up that I would be willing to sell if a fair offer came in. And he came back to me with that in less than a week. The buyer was rather new to the real estate business, which presented its own set of challenges but Jason worked closely with me to make sure that we didn’t give them any excuses to delay or cancel the deal.
