Happy Clients Make Us Smile
“Rod and Jamie could not have been more pleasant, patient, and understanding of our needs and family situation. We were in the midst of having our first child and were very apprehensive of the wild housing market. Not once did we feel pressured, manipulated, or rushed. They were always educating us with data and their experiences, but most importantly they allowed us to take the time we needed to find the place that was right for us. We are very happy with our home and the price we paid. Our friends and family that have heard about our home buying experience have all been very jealous.”
Tom & Candace Crowley (Buyers)
“Jeff and I have been working with Rod and Jamie for 15 years and we trust them like family. We purchased our first home with them and it was obvious they had our best interests at heart, solidifying a long standing working relationship. Rod and Jamie represented us in our recent purchase of a home and we could not have done it without their expertise and patience. They are both professional and personable which puts you at ease at during a highly stressful time. Purchasing or selling a home is highly emotional and both Jamie and Rod have the experience to prepare you for everything. They are very thorough and supportive and know Solano County well. Rod and Jamie are a great team and complement each other; they both offer something a little different and yet just as valuable. We cannot recommend them enough!”

“We can't thank you guys enough for everything. We put all our trust in you and we felt so taken care of and in good hands the entire time. Just like last time. We appreciate you both so much as agents and friends. We will miss seeing you as often.
Chris & Mandi Renshaw (Repeat Clients - Buyers & Sellers)
“The Hermans helped sell my family's Benicia home and did a fantastic job of explaining the housing market and evaluating our home's potential value. After we set a price, they developed a marketing plan and helped prepare our house for showings. During the offer and option, we had some negotiations which Rod magnificently explained and advocated on our behalf through. After moving to Texas, I later became a Realtor and gained a whole new understanding of their competence. I realized through my own licensing experience they expertly followed the rules, acted only on our best interest, and worked very hard to execute a plan that would deliver an outcome that we demanded. I highly recommend Rod and Jamie Herman. They are honest, trustworthy, competent and personable. ”

“Our journey with Rod & Jamie started many years ago. They have been involved in all of our real estate dealings and their years of experience shows in all areas of their business. They are the Best team in Solano County!!”
Dr. & Mrs. Wayne & Jennifer Ogata (Repeat Clients - Buyers & Sellers)
“Rod and Jamie were our dynamic duo of superheros to sell our Vallejo family home after the passing of our father earlier this year. They worked with us four siblings as we sought to fulfill our father’s trust before year’s end. Team Herman helped us figure out the right asking price to sell our house quickly & fairly on a market that had just begun to mend. They worked with us around health issues and having a family member live in the house until new housing was found. While patient and accommodating, they also stayed on top of details and moving the process forward in a timely manner.
They also provided recommendations on support services to help us haul, dump & clean a house packed with family memories. This allowed us to make our house as attractive to prospective buyers as possible. We suspect Mom and Dad are smiling down on us from that great Korean-Chinese all-you-can-eat buffet in Heaven saying, “Great job! Give thanks. Enjoy!””
“Minnie & Herb’s Kids” (Seller)
“We are so grateful that we chose Rod and Jamie Herman to handle the sale of our home in Vallejo. Given that we had already purchased another home half-way across the country, it was imperative that we sell our house quickly for a fair price. Rod and Jamie displayed the utmost professionalism at every encounter. They are incredibly knowledgeable regarding the constantly changing real estate market and explained all aspects of the process to us. After we moved out, Rod and Jamie even ensured that contractors performed their duties competently and on schedule, and even though we were 2,500 miles away, we knew we didn’t have to worry about work getting done, as Rod and Jamie had provided us with tremendous peace of mind.
We were always kept up to date and never had to wonder where we were in the process. In less than a week of putting our house on the market, we received multiple offers, almost all of which were above the asking price. Given that in the past we have had dismal encounters with other real estate agents, Rod and Jamie were a true blessing at a very stressful time in our lives. I would highly recommend them to anyone thinking of buying or selling a home – they are truly in a league of their own.”
Jamie and Margie Cavin (Sellers)
“I would like to thank you two very much for going above and beyond to help me sell my mobile home. Your kind caring heart and your expertise and knowledge made the hard time I was having easier and anyone that has you two as their realtors are in very good hands and I will always refer your two to friends and family and would always be glad to tell anyone how wonderful you guys are and again thank you so much for being there for me in my time of need.”
Mary Wieling (Seller)
“My experiences with Rod and Jamie Herman during the sales of my properties were amazing. I had some unique and extenuating challenges that I was up against. Rod was extremely detailed orientated. He made me aware of all possibilities, as I had been consulting with him for over a year prior to my sales. They both answered every question and Rod even went so far as to learn and introduce a new program that articulated information that was not being understood by another party involved. I felt empowered and safe during this process.
I trust their expertise and value their opinions. I know I would not have met my challenges without them. I admittedly fear ever having to work with an agent outside of their territory in the future. I can say with the utmost confidence that working with the Hermans, was not only a great experience but they always made me feel comfortable and confident that all the decisions I was up against were the absolute best ones for me. I can not say enough about the positive experiences I have had with Rod and Jamie Herman during my real estate sales in Solano County.”

Fairfield & Vacaville
“We are repeat customers of Rod and Jamie Herman and highly recommend their services for every real estate need. They have represented us in transactions with our personal residences as well as rental properties. Rod and Jamie always demonstrate a positive, can-do attitude in dealing with all phases of the sale. They both are involved throughout the process and keep the customer up to speed throughout the transaction. During the sale, Rod and Jamie always display their usual professionalism by handling every aspect with tact; during one negotiation they dealt with a much less experienced agent who represented the buyer. Their guidance led to a timely and successful closing.
Rod and Jamie provide necessary advice and guidance exhibiting their expert knowledge of real estate. Even in a difficult and tenuous market, they explained the nuances of proper pricing and preparation for showing our home to its best advantage. We were very fortunate to have two full price offers within ten days, thanks to Rod and Jamie.
Once again, we faced a real estate transaction and relied on our tried and true relationship with the Hermans. We were very fortunate to have the “Hidden Advantage” on our side. Based on our past and present experience, we will always call on Rod and Jamie to represent our real estate needs and highly recommend them to others.”
Charlie and Gail Bouffard (Repeat Clients - Buyers & Repeat)
“I've enjoyed working with Rod and Jamie Herman through multiple transactions as both a buyer and seller. I trust them so much that I've referred friends to them and all have been pleased. Rod and Jamie are responsive and helpful, providing timely information to make the whole process easy to understand. They are thoughtful and thorough in their approach to real estate and because of their many years of experience, they know how to work with anyone and everyone. If I should need real estate help in the future, I wouldn't hesitate to contact Rod and Jamie Herman.”
Monique le Conge Ziesenhenne (Repeat Client - Buyer & Seller)
“I have had a working relationship with Rod and Jamie for several years. With that and with their relationship with my accountant, it made sense to use them in selling 3 of my rental properties. These sales were not your typical real estate transactions because I was requesting the use of seller financing. Their knowledge of present day usury laws and restrictions made these sales seamless and successful. Thank you Rod and Jamie.”
Joel Harvey (Repeat Client - Seller)
“Rod and Jamie Herman are the BEST! They know the community and their business. They educated me wisely, advocated for my interests, and walked with me through inspections and closing. Just decent, caring, interested people. I am new to Benicia and Rod and Jamie got me off to a great start. With their expertise and attention I found the perfect home for me.”
Suzanne A. (Buyer)
“I want to thank Rod and Jamie Herman for their professionalism as real estate agents. And their expertise and knowledge of my local real estate market. Rod and Jamie made the process of selling my home very easy. Walking me through every point of the transaction. Hand holding if necessary, I felt, they had my back at every step of the way. Their caring was a quality that was very important to me.
Rod and Jamie also helped in finding a new home for me. In an area of town that sees few For Sale Signs. Their determination in making sure I found a home and was happy with my purchase confirmed I had found the right realtors for me.
I highly recommend Rod & Jamie Herman for your real estate needs.”
