About Eric Jacobsen

Eric Jacobsen

I have lived in Nevada County now for 22 years. Our journey to this special place came via Long Beach California and Stockton California where my wife and I each grew up. We made our way up to San Francisco for college and on to Sacramento for a wedding, a house, and a little settling down. One day we decided to drive up to the Nevada County area and check it out. Within one week, we were in escrow on the house we still live in today. We would have never thought we would be raising two little ones along with a coop full of chickens, dogs, and cats on 6 acres. Those little ones are now teenagers at Nevada Union and while our chicken days are on hiatus, we are loving living here more than ever. If you are checking out our website and live here, you get it. You know what it is like to go swim the Yuba River on a hot July night and stop in Nevada City on the way home for dinner. You know how awesome it is to go to the Bluegrass Festival, the Strawberry Festival, and World Fest and even camp there when you could just go home instead. You also know how this community is filled with some of the most generous and caring people anywhere and how much pride and care we take in our little slice of heaven. If you are on our website and thinking of moving here, you soon will get it!

So now that you know how I feel about Nevada County and a little about us personally, I would love to talk to you or meet with you and guide you through the process of buying or selling property in Nevada County. I have all the marketing tools and backing of Coldwell Banker plus 22 years of experience in real estate in this county. I take seriously all that comes with a real estate transaction and promise you that I will act solely in your best interest, will act with the highest integrity, and will guide you through everything that comes along with this process.

Thanks for stopping by my website. Feel free to come by the office to meet me or call/email and I can help you with any of your real estate needs.

Testimonials – Why Our Clients LOVE US!!!

Eric has an incredible amount of patience. I was extremely picky and not willing to settle until I found the perfect place. After dragging Eric all throughout the county for roughly 4 years, he finally found the me the perfect second home. He is extremely professional and very knowledgeable about the area and all aspects of his job. I would highly recommend Eric to anyone looking for a home in the area!
We have been involved in a number of real estate transactions over the last 20 years across the West coast and have worked with a number of great agents. With our move to Nevada County, however, we had the opportunity to work with Eric Jacobsen who simply provided a level of services well beyond what we expected or had ever experienced. Given the fairly complex history of parcel development and land use in Nevada County and the need to understand water rights, well systems, septic systems, and easements, real estate purchases in the area can be more complex than they first appear. Our particular situation was even more challenging being a short sale with two lien holders and taking over 9 months of intensive bank negotiations to complete the transaction. During this rather involved process Eric demonstrated a commanding understating of the legal and financial process, a strong ability to anticipate and overcome challenges, patience when working with both seller and buyer parties, and a fundamental ability to always follow through on his word. What impressed us most about Eric was his kindness and compassion he brought to the table. Eric deeply cares about and respects all parties involved in these transactions and we believe he represents the principles and ethics most people value in these endeavors. While we believe there are many good, hard working agents, Eric simply represents the absolute top of this class. We could not imagine a better person to work with.
Jeremy and Daniela
Good clients are only as good as who is representing them and we thank you for making our transaction a smooth one! It’s not easy when there are multiple personalities involved but fortunately you were able to make it work. Again, we thank you.
Eric facilitated the sale of our house in Grass Valley. He was very professional, always answering our questions and making himself available to us. Before we put the house on the market he sat down with us and listened to our concerns and our bottom line. He took the information, analyzed it, along with the market values, and helped us to come up with a listing price we all felt comfortable with. Eric also helped us in our search for a new house to buy. He was always able to get us all the information we needed regarding houses we were looking at. If we had questions, he gave us his opinion, but in no way did he say we needed to compromise or give up what we were looking for.

Eric Jacobsen is honest, fair and business minded and I have recommended him too many of my friends.
