" We’ve truly enjoyed working with Jim! His guidance in the city and suburbs has been extremely helpful as we navigate the purchase and sale process during a crazy market." - Caitlin K

★★★★★
" Jim was a pleasure to work with when buying and seller our house. The highest compliment I can give is that he genuinely cares what we wanted in our house and provided honest and realistic feedback. He has great knowledge of the market and gave us realistic expectations while setting timelines to evaluate the activity on the sale of the house. We greatly appreciated Jim making the process much easier and would highly recommend him." - Thomas C

" Jim was professional and friendly - very knowledgeable as well. Would recommend Jim to anyone! " - Michael C

★★★★★
" My first interaction with Jim left me wondering if his interest in helping my wife and I would wane. We reached out to him months before we were ready to seriously start looking. Nonetheless, Jim took more than an hour on the phone with us going through our elementary questions and guiding us on what to expect along each step. And once we actually did start looking, that commitment was maintained and intensified. Jim made sure to walk us through the process and understand the pros cons of a given property. He left us feeling confident in our purchase. Jim was always prompt, always cordial, always insightful, always validating. Our purchase is not our forever home. And we knew that going in. But when it comes time to sell our place and look for what's next, Jim will be the first person we call. " - Zach W

★★★★★
