Our Client Reviews

Serving our Real Estate clients well is our highest priority. Receiving feedback from our clients on a job well done is the highest compliment any Realtor® can get.

2021 Seller – Long Beach

I feel people come into your life for a reason. You helped us at a time when things were not good.  I sincerely don’t know what I would’ve done without you both during the Canehill and Hackett sales. Honesty and integrity are in short supply these days!!   I appreciate you both so much!! (This note was sent to us in Sept 2021 from a client that we helped sell 2 homes for her a few years ago.)

 

2021 Buyer – Irvine

We are so appreciative and grateful for all of your expertise and hard work. This entire process has been a win-win. Your instincts are infallible. Congratulations on a job well done!

 

2021 Seller – Irvine

Jim and Danielle are an amazing duo. Their expertise complements one another to yield an extremely formidable duo you'll want and appreciate having on your side in the real estate landscape out there in the world today. Hands down, they're the best, by far, I've dealt with in the past 20 years, across a few houses I've sold over the years and I'd welcome the chance to have them represent me again as either a buyer or seller.

 

2021 Seller – Mission Viejo

My husband and I had a complete 360-degree experience with Jim and Danielle Corliss- they were our realtors when we bought our home in California, and they were also our realtors when we sold that same home 17years later. Throughout, they have been consummate professionals, offering experience, wisdom, and advice to help us make the right decision for our family. We trust them implicitly, and cannot recommend them highly enough!

 

2021 Seller – Irvine

Jim & Danielle are very professional agents & were great to work with.

 

2021 Seller – Lake Forest

Jim and Danielle Corliss went far above and beyond what we expected. They were quick to respond to questions and concerns. I would highly recommend them.

 

2020 Seller – Mission Viejo

Danielle & Jim Corliss were an amazing find! They were always professional, thorough, and excellent at communicating and following through. If there was a problem to deal with, they always took care of it and didn’t even inform us of the problem until it was resolved. We have worked with at least 8 different agents throughout the years over different properties and they were by far the best. I would highly recommend them.

 

2020 Buyer – Laguna Niguel

We feel so blessed to have had Jim and Danielle help us purchase our first home. The process was so smooth, and so fast! They were full of great recommendations, like the lender they suggested who could close quickly and strengthen our offer. When a minor issue came up towards the end of the escrow process, Jim and Danielle handled it completely without us ever having to worry about a back and forth with the sellers. I tend to worry about every little thing, real and imagined, and Jim and Danielle kept us calm and confident throughout the entire process. We are clients for life!

 

2020 Seller – Rancho Santa Margarita

Jim & Danielle are highly experienced real estate professionals who have effectively managed all aspects of the purchase, rental management, property upgrade, and sale of the investment. By far, Jim and Danielle are the best real estate team I have ever worked with across 33 years of real estate investing!

 

I can’t say enough about how great you and Jim are to work with. Your attention to detail, knowledge of the real estate, and our ability to manage rental properties is truly unparalleled. I have firsthand experience in managing my own rental properties, I have also suffered the miserable results of really poor property managers.  My good friends here in Phoenix consistently tell new real estate investors there are only two types of property managers: really bad and extremely marginal. I have corrected that conversation many times by describing Jim and Danielle… yep, that good!

 

2020 Buyer – Mission Viejo

Having you and Jim guiding us has made this process much less stressful than I was anticipating.

 

2020 Seller – Mission Viejo

Thank you for all your REALLY hard work to accomplish such a great outcome! We really appreciate you and this reconfirms we chose the right agents!

 

2020 Seller – Garden Grove

Jim & Danielle Corliss took the stress out of a very stressful situation involving the unexpected sale of the family home. The entire process was communicated upfront and each step was professional, efficient & positive. If I had ten houses to sell, they would be the only ones I'd have the confidence in to choose. Excellent agents!!

 

Thank you once again and a million more times for all your due diligence. I trusted you and knew you would not disappoint, and you certainly exceeded. You kept me calm & focused and as stress-free as could possibly be. I am forever grateful.

 

2020 Buyer – Rancho Santa Margarita

Danielle and Jim were very kind, informative, and helpful. They gave excellent advice and feedback and guided us through the process with patience and insight. They helped my best friend find a place and I remember appreciating the non-pressured support they gave her, so they were my first call when it was time for me to find a new home. They were responsive during the process and made themselves as available as we needed. I had a great experience with them and unreservedly recommend them.

 

2020 Buyer – Rancho Santa Margarita

You guys were so fantastic.  Thank you so much for all you did.  

 

2020 Seller and Buyer – Mission Viejo

Jim and Danielle Corliss are one of the most dynamic teams I have ever had the pleasure to know. One of the many things that set them apart is that they are brilliant at involving you in the decision-making process and always do a wonderful job of explaining the rationale behind those decisions. They also honor their commitments and keep promises, which reinforces that trust is one of their highest priorities. Thank you, Jim and Danielle, for leaving such a positive impression on all of the people you touch.

 

2019 Seller – Big Bear

Danielle and Jim were right on top of everything they were very attentive and helpful. Thank you for all you did to make the selling of our house easier. You were such a blessing!

 

2019 Buyer – Aliso Viejo

Danielle and Jim are true professionals. They told me what I needed to do every step of the way on a very complicated escrow. Each time I talked to them, my mind was put at ease with their calm demeanor and vast knowledge of real estate. "High-Five" to the best Team in Real Estate!

 

2019 Seller – Rancho Santa Margarita

Wow, what a seamless process that you guided us through. You were so attentive to keeping our house looking nice while we lived in Berkeley, and even took care of our packages and did house jobs everywhere. You both are such competent, reliable, and special people. You have been wonderful and patient realtors! We appreciate all that you have done for us!!  I’m so glad we could work with you again. Danielle and Jim, we can’t thank you enough!

 

2019 Seller – Laguna Niguel

We just had the opportunity to work with Jim & Danielle for the third time and we couldn’t be happier! They’re both very knowledgeable and effective and bottom line they got us what we wanted and fast. Thank you Jim and Danielle for helping making our dreams come true. 

 

2019 Buyer – Foothill Ranch

Already recommended Danielle and Jim to a Co-worker. They were a pleasure to work with. I will call on them as if I make another move.

 

2018 Buyer – Long Beach

Consummate professionals, warm, and great communicators. Working with Jim and Danielle has been our best real estate experience to date!

 

2018 Seller – Rancho Santa Margarita

Extremely happy with Jim and Danielle on every aspect of the experience!

 

2018 Seller – Long Beach

Thank you so much for your professionalism, expertise, and help! I knew going in my house was a "challenge" to sell needing work updating. You accepted the opportunity and sold it so quickly. Your efforts were amazing. I am glad you have the experience you do.  Thank you!!!!

 

2018 Seller – Laguna Niguel

You both are the best in the business and we are blessed to be able to work with you again!

 

2018 Buyer –Rancho Santa Margarita

Danielle and Jim have been the most amazing during our process of finding our family home. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with each of them and I would HIGHLY recommend using them for finding a home for your family! They are so kind and put so much effort into knowing who their clients are and the needs they have. They were able to know exactly what my husband and I were looking for and they found us the PERFECT home! Danielle was awesome with all of my needs and emails, she was so accommodating and I appreciated all she did and continues to do for us! I highly recommend them to anyone and everyone! We love you guys, thank you so much for all you did for us!

 

2018 Seller –Oxford, Rancho Cucamonga

We have worked with Corliss three times, and it is always a pleasure to work with them! They are always extremely reliable, knowledgeable, and on top of the whole process! Very friendly, caring people as well! Everything a good realtor should be!

 

2018 Seller –Drexel, Lake Forest

Jim and Danielle provided superb, professional service and sold our home in a flash. Selling a home can be an emotional experience, but Jim and Danielle helped ease my worries through the process. I consider them trusted friends as well as realtors.

 

2018 Seller – Camino del Cielo, Trabuco Canyon

Great realtor couple! We have referred to numerous friends and colleagues and used them to both buy and sell our homes.

 

2018 Buyer – 134 Bloomfield, Rancho Santa Margarita

Jim and Danielle were absolutely wonderful to work with. We had a long process due to certain restrictions and they patiently guided us through the process. Being first-timers in a very competitive market, we had a lot of questions and they always got back to us promptly. It was very reassuring to know that we had such experienced folks who wanted the best for our family. Thanks, Danielle and Jim!

 

2018 Buyer – 2725 Horace, Riverside, CA 92506

Jim and Danielle established a relationship very quickly with the listing agent and we were able to purchase our new home that had multiple offers higher than ours. They were great at communicating and quick to respond to my many questions, being a first-time buyer. They are both knowledgeable and trustworthy. They went above and beyond for us. I would recommend them anytime.

 

2017 Seller – 137 Avenida Mesita, San Clemente, CA 92673

Corliss Realty had done an excellent job with a business associate's rental unit and the ultimate sale of his home. We were aware of other properties they handled, both as listing agents and representing other buyers, all with extremely favorable comments from their clients. We were very impressed with the knowledge Corliss Realty had of other important related issues, e.g. carryover of (Prop 13 Jarvis and Prop 60) tax savings on a lower priced home, excellent rapport with the other agent that satisfied all of our marginal corrections, they even procured boxes for our move, etc.

They were very friendly, compassionate, focused on our needs and concerns, (not on theirs), very empathetic, and overall excellent business acumen with a bonus of Jim's home construction familiarity. In summary, we would enthusiastically recommend Corliss Realty representing either those who are selling or purchasing real property.

 

2017 Buyer – 28641 Capri, Mission Viejo, CA 92692

Their services would be highly recommended! Their knowledge of every facet was impressive. Their compassion and empathy of our needs was excellent. We absolutely resolved the price and terms we requested without compromise by either party.

 

2017 Seller - 17 Via Barcelona, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA 92688

Jim & Danielle continue to be such a pleasure to work with, always there to help me in managing my rental properties with efficient, effective and timely solutions to any issue that arises. I have bought and sold properties with Corliss Realty and every time we move through a transaction, I am impressed by their professionalism and can-do spirit. Thank you Jim and Danielle!

 

2017 Seller - 27 Golf View, Dove Canyon, CA 92679

Jim and Danielle were extremely knowledgeable and professional. They are great communicators and truly helped find creative solutions for difficulties we had with the buyers loan broker. We could not be happier and very much appreciate all the above and beyond expectation assistance they gave us.

You are above and beyond, and we would be lost without you. (Comment written during Escrow.)

 

2017 Buyers – 18930 Canyon View, Trabuco Canyon, CA 92679

I can't say enough good things about Jim and Danielle Corliss. It was a very scary thing going into buying our first home and they made the entire process so much easier and explained all the details and steps we needed to make. They were always prompt in answering any questions I had (which were often) and made us feel like we were their main priority! Danielle has an AMAZING way with words. The house we are now living in and in love with we got because of her offer letter! The seller said they felt like they knew us through the letter Danielle wrote and the selling agent said that is what made us stand out from the 5 offers that were in. Jim has built 2 houses in the past and I have seen his work, believe me, he knows what he is doing! So when you view home with them you are not only getting the expertise of their knowledge of the real estate market, but Jim can look at the foundation and give suggestions on that as well. I know they truly cared about our family and finding what fits for us. They will be lifelong friends (and of course our Realtor) and I would recommend them to family and friends in an instant. They also recommended a lender who ended up doing an OUTSTANDING job! They are the best team anyone could ask for. Our new house is perfect. Just perfect. Seriously we can't express enough how grateful we are! Thank you two so much!!!

 

2017 Buyer - 17 Via Barcelona, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA 92688

Danielle and Jim are extremely knowledgeable, professional, ethical, and supportive. They stayed completely apprised of the current market trends, offered useful counsel and advice. I felt completely comfortable that they had my best interests at heart and in the forefront, during the entire process.

2017 Buyer - 4808 Bradford, Orange, CA 92867

Words are not enough to express the gratitude, professionalism, and great service that Jim & Danielle have given us. They both were incredibly knowledgeable, so kind, and always kept us a priority. Danielle & Jim represented us in the upmost professional and caring manner throughout the entire home purchase. They continue to "wow" us with their positive attitudes, welcoming smiles, and thoughtful guidance. We love them both! This process developed into a wonderful relationship that Danielle & Jim are considered a part of our family circle. You want good and honest professional real estate services, give Corliss Realty a call!

 

2017 Buyer – 56 Tierra Montanosa, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA 92688

Danielle and Jim are incredibly knowledgeable; specifically, they understand the entire process, which was particularly important to me as a first-time homebuyer.  As important, and I cannot stress this enough, they are considerate, responsive, and supportive. We started working together just months after my mother passed away. Three months later, I lost my dad. Their kindness and understanding were so helpful. I have heard others describe home buying as painful and intrusive. My experience with Jim and Danielle was neither--it was fantastic and I recommend them fully and without hesitation.  

 

2017 Buyer – Ravendale, Irvine, CA 92602

I would absolutely recommend Jim and Danielle Corliss for anyone's realty needs. This the fourth (and soon to be an upcoming fifth) transaction I have worked with the Corliss team. This most recent home purchase was a bit more complicated because it involved a relocation company, however, the Corliss team made it simple and straightforward for me. They were able to quickly answer and address any questions or concerns I had. It's always a pleasure to work with them!

 

2017 Buyer – Via Kristina, Laguna Niguel, CA 92677

Responsive, knowledgeable, supportive. Great to work with - went the extra mile to help us get what we wanted. Highly recommend this team! We lovvvvvve our house ... love it!!

 

2017 Seller – Alonda, Foothill Ranch, CA 92610

They were wonderful! It was a difficult time as I was selling my parents’ home after they both passed away. Jim and Danielle made the process so easy and were always there with answers to my questions and concerns. Could not have gotten through this without them!

 

2017 Seller - Blue Oak, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA 92688

This was my fourth transaction with the Corliss's and I could not imagine buying or selling property without

their involvement. They consistently go above and beyond my expectations to make the buying and selling process go very smoothly. I would highly recommend anyone who is in need of a realtor to contact them for their services. Their integrity, professionalism and strong knowledge of the Orange County market will enable you to have an awesome and easy experience in buying or selling your home!

 

2017 Buyer – Garrison Loop, Ladera Ranch, CA 92694

Jim and Danielle are a power house team! From the very beginning, they listened to our desires and made our new home their priority. Whether we had questions about the buying process, wanted advice on painting, or needed someone to keep us focused on our priorities, they were there. Danielle and Jim each bring amazing strengths to the home-buying process. (Written after closing Escrow.)

 

Thank you so much for all you are doing for us. We know we are in excellent hands and really cannot thank you

enough for the way you keep us informed and help us through this process. You are amazing, and we are so

thankful for the work you are doing for us. (Written during Escrow.)

 

2016 Buyer – Yellowstone, Lake Forest, CA 92630

Jim and Danielle did a fantastic job and walked me through the entire home buying process from start to finish, and after closing there were several items to be dealt with and they were completely on top of it, I would highly recommend Jim and Danielle for all your local home buying needs. Thanks Jim and Danielle!!!

2016 Seller’s Realtor (We represented the Buyers) – Yellowstone, Lake Forest, CA 92630

There are only a few agents left who are as dependable as you are.  I would be honored to do more escrows with you.

 

2016 Seller – Michigan, Lake Forest, CA 92630

I can’t thank you and Jim enough for all the time and effort you put into the Michigan Lane sale. You are both true professionals that really care about your clients. You serve with significance and it shows.

 

Jim & Danielle Corliss have been incredibly helpful in preparing my home for sale, staging, marketing and providing effective open-house events. Truly a pleasure to work with highly experienced professionals. The Corliss team has guided me through the entire process and negotiated a successful sale of my home. Their market knowledge and understanding of real estate made a significant and positive impact in my home sale. I could not ask for a better team to work with. I look forward to continuing my work with the Corliss Team for property management, real estate sales and purchases.

 

I just walked in, WOW, you and Jim did a fabulous job on the flyer and signs. Very professional.
Thank you for all you did to generate interest. (Written during the marketing of the home.)

2016 Buyer – Sleepy Glen, Trabuco Canyon, CA 92679

We couldn’t have been luckier in buying our home guided by your expertise and genuine concern for what was best for us. You both are professional, friendly and knowledgeable in every area. You made the process so much easier for us.  We love our new house and are eternally grateful to you!

They were incredibly helpful, proactive and supportive! I highly recommend them.

 

2016 Buyer – Pointe Royale, Laguna Niguel, CA 92677

Looking back, choosing to work with the Corliss's was a fantastic choice! Jim and Danielle went above and beyond to address every one of our concerns or questions. We appreciated the time they spent on us, eventually finding us our dream home. We felt like they really cared... We believe they really do! We feel like we got 2 realtors for the price of 1. I would highly recommend calling Jim or Danielle to see what they can do for you. Thank you Corliss Realty! We are so happy to be settling in our new house! We pinch ourselves daily! We wanted to thank you both for helping us along this journey. Thank you. Thank you.

2016 Buyer - Oxford, Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91730

In a world where it's becoming less and less common to find people who are skilled, friendly and completely reliable in their jobs, thank goodness for Jim and Danielle. They are amazing. Always available and prompt, always friendly and kind, they made the daunting process of buying and selling a home so smooth and accessible. The whole process was so much easier than we were expecting, thanks to them! I couldn't recommend them more!

 

2016 Seller - Cornwall, Huntington Beach, CA 92646

I would HIGHLY recommend Jim and Danielle! My wife and I have worked with them twice and both times were a pleasure! Jim and Danielle are friendly people, great to work with, and always reliable! They are very diligent and on top of everything in the end-to-end buying/selling process, and that's always important considering all of the various communications, steps, and processes involved. I couldn't ask for better service from a realtor.
