History

My name is James Tan, I initially dabbled into real estate many decades ago when I was living in San Jose. I bought and sold properties and I realized that I could make half of my salary as an engineer, in one deal. That was when I initially got my real estate agent license. By the early nineties I had a couple of my apartment buildings. Then the real estate recession hit hard. LIke may other people I got burned. By early 2000s I recovered and enjoyed the rally all the way to 2005. Then, the great recession happened. That was an opportunity that I was waiting for. So I invested heavily in foreclosures and short sales. Of course, by 2012 the Sacramento market started to recover and rallied until today.

Bethany Real Estate and Investments was established as a full svc real estate brokerage offering the best service for the home buyer/seller in Elk Grove & Greater Sacramento at the least cost.

Some agents care only about making the deal. We on the other hand, want you to succeed in buying/selling your home. We listen/understand your needs, and we have the expertise/patience to help you.

Not many real estate agents/brokers/realtors have gone through 3 real estate boom/bust cycles in CA. We have and we can share with you the experience we gained. Because real estate is so cyclical, it is crucial for you to know where you are in the cycle, before you buy. This could make a difference between a loss and a gain. We as real estate agents help you avoid the pitfalls.

With over 30 yrs experience, in real estate, investing and venture capital I offer you a professional service and expertise, which are crucial, for you as an investor or a home buyer or a seller.

I have an engineering degree, a Masters in Computer Science from UC Berkeley and an MBA from Univ. of Santa Clara.

I pride myself on my expertise not only as a real estate broker/agent/realtor but also in the areas of economics, finance and technology.

Whether you are a seller, first-time or a move-up home buyer or a real estate investor, we as real estate agents/broker/realtor always put the interest of the client at heart. Because I have been successful  as a real estate investor for many years, I do not really have to rely on commissions for a living. Therefore I can afford to let a deal go, if it isn't in the best interest of my client.

We treat every listing as if it is our own property, and do the best we can. We only provide honest and straight forward advice. 

Let us help you and find out why we are ranked 5-stars among the best real estate agents in elk grove/sacramento.
