El Dorado County

El Dorado County is one of the most diverse, beautiful places you’ll ever visit. Sierra scenery is nothing short of spectacular, spanning across more than 1800 square miles with elevations ranging from just a few feet to more than 10,000 feet above sea level. The 1848 discovery of gold in Coloma touched off the largest gold rush in history. Today we are much more than rustic mining towns and historic sites. We are a year-round vacation destination overflowing with outdoor adventure, a welcoming wine and agricultural scene, enriching family activities, and a proud Gold Rush history.

What Clients Say about Jim

"We highly recommend Jim Hamilton. Jim helped us purchase our first home in a quick, highly competitive real estate market. From the beginning to the end of the transaction Jim was always very professional in his work ethics, respectful and honest. He responded promptly to our questions, was always very helpful, and closed on time. If we need help with real estate in the future we will definitely go to Jim. If you're thinking about selling/purchasing or ready to sell/purchase I recommend you talk to Jim Hamilton. You'll be very happy you did!"


"We not only sold a house through Jim, but also purchased two other and a lot. I would not have used Jim more than once, if he was not great to work with. Jim was always there when we needed him and keep us updated on a daily basis. I plan on using him in the near future to sell a rental we have. If your looking for a Realtor that will look out for interests and is a great negotiator, Jim's your man. If you don't use him it's your loss. GREAT REALTOR!"


"Jim is excellent to work with! Very expierenced in the area and always goes the extra mile with everything. We relocated here from San Diego and did not know the market, area, or even city we wanted to move to. Jim showed us countless homes with patience and attention over months before we found the perfect fit. Not only do I highly recommend him, he is the only realtor I can see myself working with again. Not sure anyone else can can compare!"
