Jim did an exceptional job taking care of our interest and walking us through any issues that arose during the transaction. He provided good advice and answered questions knowledgeably. He took care of any issues that could be taken care of with minimal work on our part. Jim performed in the way that I expect a quality agent to perform and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone in need of an agent.

Jim was very keen in looking out for my interests and my finances and not his commission. Jim made me feel like he was directly involved in purchasing the home like it was his own and made critical decisions and observation about the homes conditions. He negotiated skillfully in a price reduction while working with a difficult sellers agent. Jim is the best agent we've had the pleasure of working with in 4 relocation moves.

Jim helped us find our dream home and we couldn't be happier. He was always available to answer questions and help us navigate the offer process. He showed us a ton of properties to make sure we found exactly what we wanted. I would recommend Jim and his associates to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
