Outstanding services I did not know existed.

After a number of real estate dealings that were tremendously stressful and inefficient I was dreading the process of looking for a new home. I was referred to Jack and was living in my new home within 45 days. Wildly efficient, tremendously easy, and was left more satisfied by the entire process that I ever thought was possible

Gil Sharabi, General manager

We can’t recommend Jack highly enough.

He is professional, resourceful, and has fantastic advice. He helped us throughout the process and our house sold for far above listing. We would recommend him to friends and family without reservation.

Eric Luther

We were very fortunate to have listed our commercial property, with Jack Hirsch at Realty World.

Jack wisely advised us on everything, from cosmetic improvements, to fair listing prices. We were willing to make structural repairs and improvements, to sell our property. Jack Hirsch saved us lots of money, and time, by prioritizing the necessary improvements. And, avoiding unnecessary costs. It’s vital for any company, to list with an experienced realtor, who recognizes when to make the necessary adjustments to your listing. And, how to keep the important balance, of how much to ask for, and how much to accommodate. Jack Hirsch at Realty World, was able to close the deal, that provided more than enough, to pay for the repairs and improvements to our commercial property. And, to cover the commission for his services. It’s understandably difficult to trust people nowadays. As a (man of his word), Jack Hirsch has been a pleasant surprise, in this tough realtor industry. With integrity and trustworthiness, Jack Hirsch continued to assist us, with the sale of our company, after the sale of our commercial property. Thank you Realty World. And, good job Jack Hirsch

Vaughn Hardiman

Let me just start by saying Jack Hirsch is one of the most knowledgeable, professional, personable and all around good hearted individual person that you will ever meet.

My wife and I had the opportunity many years ago to have Jack work with us in helping find our first home. He left such an impression with us that when we decided to take our next step in life by retiring and sale our house and move on with the purchase of our next dream home, only one name came to mind “Jack Hirsch”. Jack makes everything look flawless with no stress involved. We are now enjoying our retirement in our new home.

John R Catanach, Retired Deputy Director of SF Municipal Railway

Jack is a superb realtor.

He sold my house in San Francisco and made any problems seem like a walk in the park. With Jack's support it was a positive deal. Thank you for your work! I really appreciate what you have done!

Diane Rosetti Adams, President of Rosetti Fine Foods

Jack is the ultimate real estate professional.

We never worried when he would say he would took care of something. His knowledge of the business is is greatly confidence building. The transactions with Jack helped during an already worrisome set of life's circumstances!

Edy Young, Director of Research

I’m am honored and happy to provide very satisfied feedback regarding Jack Hirsch’s help with the sale of our parent’s home.

Jack is professional, friendly, extremely knowledgeable and truly listened to our questions and concerns as first time sellers. He made the process so easy and seamless taking on the bulk of the work and navigating us through each step along the way. Everything was explained, all actions described so we understood the phases and he was readily available night and day as needed. Most exchanges were virtual paper trails and e-files but Jack was always happy to connect in person when possible which really gave a sense of partnering and trust to the entire process. . My sisters and I cannot thank him enough for all he did as we moved through the emotionally charged experience of selling “Mom and Dad’s” house. We thank him and the wonderful cast of thousands he leveraged to quickly show, sell and close the house sale in weeks. Incredible outcomes with a happy ending. It doesn’t get better than that.

Jeanne Costello-Morris, Appreciative Client

Jack Hirsch and Hirsch Associates are as easy and professional as they come.

He simplified the selling of our family home and 2 rental properties and was able to work through any and all complications associated with those transactions with ease. I would not hesitate to recommend such an honest and hard working person such as Jack.

Mike Vigo

I highly recommend Jack, he is amazingly knowledgeable, very professional and always quick for answering any questions.

He went above and beyond my and my husband's expectations. The whole process was very smooth.

Olga Kostyuk

Jack is a man of his words, someone you can truly rely on when handling your real estate transactions.

I first got to know Jack through a 1031 replacement property I was trying to buy. Jack was the listing agent and he ended up representing both sides. He did a great job coordinating the negotiation and performing all his duties, representing both sides equally and fairly. And when I had trouble getting the loan needed to close on time, he even managed to get me a loan to close last minute with preferable rates so my exchange is not jeopardized. And even after close of escrow, he kept his words in continuing to coordinate with the commercial tenant replacement and drafting up lease agreements with no extra charge. All I can say is this industry could really use more professional realtors like Jack! Thanks again for all your help!

Kevin Guan

Jack was a great realtor.

He is reliable, honest and made us feel like a priority. He also goes above and beyond to put his clients in touch with the right people for things like inspections, contract work estimates, etc. My husband and I had a great experience working with Jack, and will definitely use his services again should we be back in the real estate market in the future.

Monique Barash, HR Business Analyst

We worked with Jack and Julia to sell our home and they are a great team.

John Carr

We’re forever grateful for all that Jack Hirsch did for the Duke Family with the sale of the Family home in Castro Valley.

As a family you are overwhelmed, dealing with the loss of a loved one and the settling of an estate and with Jack Hirsch as our Realtor “a weight was lifted” off our shoulders. Keeping the family abreast of everything that was happening at the house, getting it prepped for the sale, the open house scheduled, offers made and closing. Jack was truly a miracle worker, he’s one in a million. Larry R Duke and The entire Duke Family.

Larry R Duke, Seller

Jack Hirsch was instrumental in helping me with a recent sale transaction of a rental property.

Jack made the entire process quick and easy to understand, yet was extremely detailed, professional and patient. Jack gets high marks and my full recommendation in handling real estate matters. Thanks Jack!

Jo Fong

I highly recommend Jack.

He sold my townhouse in Dublin and a rental property in SJ for me quickly and with a minimum of fuss. He helped me to focus on what was important in prepping my home for sale, and took care of the minor details so I didn’t have to worry about them. He is an expert at knowing the market and was able to negotiate successfully to make sure all parties were happy. Very, very pleased with everything Jack has done for me throughout the sale process!

Laina Worth

Jack Hirsch is a wonderful realtor.

He guided us through a complicated process of selling our house with kindness, good humor and much knowledge of the local market. He is extremely knowledgeable about local resources and the art of negotiation. We would definitely recommend him to anyone interested in selling their house.

Frank and Ellen Kushin

Jack is very professional, knowledgeable and helpful, he is someone who you can trust, and he gets the job done for you .

He also has a perfect team mate, Julia..she’s friendly, nice and easy to work with. We’re so fortunate to find them. Thank you Jack & Julia.

Rogelio Garcia

Jack is smart, honest, and knowledgeable.

He's the best real estate guy I've worked with.

Seth Stern, Principle Scientist

After our Real estate agent pass away after 30 years assisting us, our financial advisor Recommended Jack and Julia saying, “they could be a great asset for us going forward, especially as your planning a 1031 exchange.

” Boy was he correct!! They helped us navigate the sometimes complicated details that are so important with a 1031 exchange. That saved us close to $480,000 in potential capital gains tax. After our house was sold, he offered his help in finding and qualifying the correct house to complete the 1031 exchange. Nothing in it for him at this point, yet he stayed ready by our side for any questions we had or feedback on our thoughts. INVALUABLE!! spend a few moments speaking with Jack and you are guaranteed to agree with me. Thank you Jack & Julia

Glenn, Retired service company owner

Jack is an excellent hard working broker who puts his client's interests first.

He is very experienced, ethical and talented. I recommend him very highly!

Carol Schumacher, President

Jack was immensely helpful in finding the right home for us.

He walked us through the process, arranged multiple viewings and finally when we got an offer accepted, helped bring in all the right people (contractors, inspectors, etc) to make sure we were getting everything we wanted.

Varun Sanghvi


Jack did a superb job facilitating an acquisition for me. First, Jack helped steer me away from overpriced targets and help me find the right one. Then, Jack walked me through the entire purchase process, providing expert guidance on every aspect, and answering each of my 10,000 questions. Jack's thoroughness, attentiveness, and mental acuity made me feel I was in good hands. Finally--and most importantly--Jack knows how to foster trust, a rare commodity in the world of real estate. I intend to work with Jack on future projects.

David Sack, Principal, Developer

I highly recommend Jack and Julia.

They are professional and trustworthy. Jack helped us to buy a commercial property. He kept us informed during the process and everything went smoothly. He continued helping me to manage the property even after we closed. He is an expert and very knowledgeable. He made sure that we are protected and covered all the details. Jack and Julia are honest and hard working. It was a pleasure working with them and I would highly recommend them to all the potential buyers and sellers. Thank you Jack and Julia for all you did for us.


It was both a pleasure and a privilege working with Jack who guided us through a process fraught with anxiety and risks.

Having been in the business for decades, Jack has accumulated a vast trove of knowledge -- and it shows. We found his insights to be extremely valuable and he isn't shy to point out problems. Jack showed us many properties, and it took almost a year for us to find a house that we can see ourselves living in and mount a bid that was successful in this crazy market that is Silicon Valley. Yet Jack never pressured us, and he never wavered from our best interests. He operates with high integrity and is the kind of person who will be accountable and correct course quickly if there's ever a problem or an oversight on his part. Even after the purchase, we kept in touch with Jack, and he has continued to help us, including providing a list of trusted vendors. These are all the things you want in a real estate broker or agent who represents you. Jack was all of this and more -- he's high energy, cheerful, fun to work with -- just an all-around great guy. Thank you Jack!

Rita Chang

Jack took over as property manager of my house and completed the sell of the property.

I could not have been able to complete the paperwork with out him. He put me in contact with a wonderful agent in Sacramento who helped me purchase a beautiful rental property. I can't say enough good things about Jack. He gets things done.

Norma Baldwin, owner/seller/buyer

Jack is an Ultimate seasoned professional who is very accessible, positive, and knowledgeable throughout the process.

Jack was critical in helping us complete the purchase of our redwood city house. It was a pleasure working with him and I would highly recommend him to all potential buyers and sellers. I have been working with many Realtors over the years and find Jack one of the few agents who is truely professional and takes care of his clients. His vast knowledge of market analysis, contractors, financial options, legal issues, etc. showcases that he is one of the best in the industry. If your looking for a no nonsense seasoned veteran, Jack gets my vote!

Steve Hsueh, Sr. Software Engineer

Jack was get very understanding knowledgeable great person go out of his way for you and as a client I would always use him and recommend him and his wife for anything to do for property and loans and he is great guy to know and have so I would keep jack on my phone book list and anytime I need him he there for me and I say thanks a lot Jack .

Amir s Mohamed, Electronics Tech

Jack assisted my family in purchasing our house in Belmont, CA.

It wasn't our first experience in purchasing a house, but this one was the most efficient and satisfactory experiences we ever had. Jack listened to our needs/wants/budget we had, showed us a house, listened what we would like to change to make it our dream house and shared contacts of people who came to the house and gave us an idea about time frame/estimated price and difficulties we might face to tilt it to our needs. We never met a person who truly cared that we felt comfortable with a decision we made. Thank you Jack Hirsch for being who you are. Elena & Serge

Elena Phillips, registered nurse

Jack and Julia helped us sell our house, a house that is unique in San Francisco, that would suit a very specific type of buyer.

The sale of our house happened during the COVID pandemic, which made selling more challenging. Jack and Julia knew what to do, how to do it, were creative, flexible, intelligent in their approach, focused, worked very hard, and helped us with the myriad of challenges in selling and moving out of a home that we had lived in for 25 years. They also helped us with finding a place to rent, and through the challenges of downsizing to fit our new space. Absolutely anything that we needed help with, they were there, either to do it themselves, or connect us with people or contractors that they have known for years, and trust. Jack's vast experience was an incredible asset, as he kept the process simple for us, while dealing with the many complexities, and challenges presented along the way, including closing. Next time we buy or sell a house, we will absolutely work with Jack and Julia. I recommend you make a wise choice, and hire Jack and Julia.

Barry N. Perkins

When my Mom died and I needed to sell her house, I felt overwhelmed and didn't know where to start.

We were referred to Jack, who told us to clear the house of anything we wanted to keep and leave the rest. He had a man come in and clear the house and pull up all the carpet to expose the hardwood floors. He painted over the scuffs on the walls. He cleaned up the landscaping,by pulling weeds and putting a layer of tanbark down. It looked great. Jack got the house on the market and it sold in 11 days for a lot more than the asking price. My husband and I were so lucky to have found Jack. Selling my childhood home was an emotional event. Jack was sympathetic to that and made the process as painless as possible. He followed up immediately to our questions and was on top of everything through the whole process. We highly recommend Jack. He is so easy to work with and such a nice guy.

Jim and Jennie Brick

Jack Hirsch is one of those wonderful, rare folks with the knack of immediately setting you at ease, no matter how complicated the transaction or high the emotion.

His experience and ultimate professionalism are apparent in every word spoken, and every gesture given, and he goes well beyond that vaunted extra mile to truly care and deliver for his customers. Jack never hesitates to deliver good news or bad, and always offers a solution or alternate approach when things go pear-shaped; a common occurrence in this industry. I have zero regrets from entrusting Jack with my professional real estate needs, and recently asked him to handle a few family estate transactions where I was reminded anew of his compassion and dedication. I value him not only as a professional, but as a friend and would not hesitate to recommend him far and wide.

Laura Poplin, Property & Development Manager

There is no better broker to work with for a transaction.

Mr. Hirsch was able to advise us on every aspect of the transaction. At times we did not know if we were going to be able to close and Mr. Hirsch was able to troubleshoot every step of the way to get us to the finish line. I cannot say enough good things about Mr. Hirsch. The things that make Mr. Hirsch amazing to work with are: *Punctual *Knowledgeable *Helps guide with strategy *Hard working and available anytime to make the transaction happen *Resourceful Thank you for everything you do for your clients!!!

Lior Tamir, Cosmetic Dentist

I strongly believe that Jack is a true professional!

You will be absolutely safe if he represents you! Every little detail of the transaction will be accounted for, there will be no cut corners and no surprises. He is literally guarding your interests 24/7. To me, is very important when real estate agent is helping, advising you on all pros-&-cons of the purchase, avoiding regrets of being pressured into unnecessary acquisition. I truly admire his energy and wisdom!

Serge Elmani, IT Director

We recently purchased a commercial property with Jack.

From the beginning to the end he made the process a breeze. He connected with the sellers realtor, put together a great offer and built a wonderful rapport with the sellers themselves. He helped us connect with excellent contractors and inspectors. He was by our side for each part of the process, making it smooth and easy. Jack ensures that the deal is done, and that everyone involved is satisfied. He communicates clearly and always makes you feel at ease. Jack was recommended by multiple friends who all told us that he was excellent at dealmaking and an honest person of integrity. They were all completely correct. Jack and his wife Julia have now become dear friends and we look forward to working with them again in the future.

Moshe and Chaya Fuss, Executive Directors

Jack Hirsch is my go to guy in all things real estate.

He is thorough in all phases of the transaction from identification through completion. If there are any questions or concerns about the above please feel free to contact me through Mr. Hirsch.

Scott Feiler, MD

Jack was amazing with everything will definitely use again!

Krystofer Medeiros, Homeowner

We worked with Jack Hirsch on leasing commercial space and most recently on a 1031 exchange.

Jack spared no extra effort to see the sale through, and then focus in detail with relentless enthusiasm and outstanding knowledge on finding an exchange property. Jack stands out in is ability to research, summarize in detail, and provide concise information about each project, and was always available to quickly respond to questions. He has gone way above and beyond the call of duty to look at possible exchange properties in several states to find the best project to fit our needs. Never hesitating to fly or drive to inspect the properties to make sure they are suitable and desirable. Jack has the unique talent to cut through to the core of what is essential and important, and what a class act on a personal level. His integrity and knowledge of commercial real-estate is stellar compared to anyone we have worked with in the past. We certainly feel he was much more like a partner and friend, and not just a broker. What a blessing it was to have Jack on our side, knowing he had our interest at heart


I could only say so much about Mr.

Hirsch. So Here are the highlights. *Very Professional *Very Knowledgeable of his profession *Very Hard working and supportive to his Clients. *Protects his clients *Fine tunes sales and contracts to his clients welfare. We just experienced it first hand with a sale of our property. I will be having him and using on my side, for any future ventures Highly recommend Jack Hirsch for those who like HONESTY and HARD WORK

George Nasrah, Owner

We are currently living in our dream home where there were 15 offers and we go the the house because of Jack.

When I told him we wanted this house he did am analysis of the amount it would appraise for and with that information we were confident that we were not over paying. What makes him an incredible realtor is his level of expertise he is the only person that I will blindly sign a docu sign. The added bonus his wife handles the office end of things and no one cares more about his business then his wife. You literally get two experts working to make sure you get into your new property seamlessly. Jack has also purchased and renovated so many properties he knows what you can and can’t do to a property and uses all his referral sources to assist you in getting it done. This team deserves a ten star review. I would never buy a property investment or otherwise without Jack! Thank you Jack and Julia for an outstanding job!

Angela Frangieh, Insurance Agent

Jack & Julia are an awesome team.

They were referred to us by a family member and I am so glad we moved forward with them. Everything from the qualification process to purchasing our home and tax questions were all handled with the greatest of care and most important to me communication. We had a unique situation in purchasing a family members house below market value and they looked out for us every step of the way. From having us consult with a tax specialist, to the paperwork and the notary used. Buying a house is always stressful and they made it much easier in reassuring us, being available, professional and communicative. I would 100% recommend them to anyone.

Alicia Mora, Sr. Supply Chain Analyst

Jack Hirsh is one of the BEST in the industry.

His professionalism and dedication is truly one of the kind. I have had numerous transactions in which I am extremely satisfied. He always goes the extra mile to assure a smooth closing. I am a Licensed Real Estate Broker but always have Jack to handle my own transactions.

Abe Kaabipour, Buyer

We enlisted Jack to sell our family’s house in San Francisco during the challenging pandemic.

Jack was not only the ultimate professional — incredibly knowledgeable, responsive, thorough, and pleasant — he also went well above and beyond the call of the order to solve our many headaches, such as speedily finding people during a tight labor market to perform repairs to the house, or to clean out and dispose a house full of items accumulated over decades by our aging parents. Thanks to smart pricing and marketing, the house sold for record price for the neighborhood. Jack makes difficult situations look easy and delivers outstanding results.

"Jack Hirsch assisted my family in purchasing our home in Belmont, CA. He went above and beyond what was expected from sells person and made our experience extremely positive. In addition to being highly efficient in finding the best house for our family for a price that we were able to afford, he also shared contacts of the professionals that can customize our house to our family comfort. It was not our first experience in purchasing a house in California but it was the most efficient experience that we ever had. Jack listened what we were looking for, showed us a house, listened what we wanted to change about the house, got us in contact with people who could potentially do the work and estimate a price for it, and we bought a house."

"Expert care and commitment to your every need is not even enough to say about the service we received from Jack and his team. From extensive listings, personal follow up, to setting up a new mortgage with ease, this was our experience. We went from rental property to triple net and this process was made with ease and minimal amount of stress. Even after the sale, Jack and his team didn't just walk away. I wouldn't go anywhere else"

"I just purchased a home in Fairfield, with Jack's assistance. The entire transaction was flawless, he went out of his way to make sure everything was done in a timely fashion. When I had questions, his response time was amazingly fast, even on weekends. He arranged for appointments, home inspections and reviewed all documents with me. He truly believes that customers come first and acts accordingly. I will definitely use him to sell my home in Redwood City, would not consider another agent.Update 8/14/2018: Jack just sold my Redwood City house. Based on his recommendations, we staged the house, did some updates. The house sold in the first week! Escrow closed today, money is in the bank. Thank you Jack!"
