“James brought energy and a positive attitude to marketing our apartment -- something that we did not see in other agents when we asked them to market our (somewhat dated) 1 br. James was a pleasure and was always careful to keep us informed. Most importantly, James marketed our apartment so well that it sold faster than expected (two weeks) above our asking, in a soft market! What could be a better endorsement than that!“ - William S.
“Gave us a wide listing that met our requirements, very helpful and affable. Worked within our tight time frame and we got exactly what we were looking for. Would recommend to anyone.“ - Isabella S.
“James was incredibly responsive and helpful with every step. As a first time home buyer it was game changing to have someone in my corner that I could go to with every concern. I couldn't have asked for an easier process! “ - Ben C.
