Best Real Estate Agent, Hands Down!
Jim has been a God send to us. When we first moved to MD we turned to one of the more popular agencies all over the tri-state area. We worked with two agents from the same agency, one in WV and the other in MD. Our agent in MD was a bit pushy and seemingly put-off by our smaller budget and lack of enthusiasm in her choices of available properties she wanted us to drive miles just to look at. I felt like she didn´t think our price range was worth her going to much effort for us. Ultimately, her tactics to just "get us in" a place were in favor of the seller (!), so we ended our business relationship. Our agent in WV with the same company was no better. We ended up having to do our own appraisal on a property we wanted to put an offer on (after a huge botch job by her severely underestimating another property´s value we´d had hopes for), due to the property being listed by, of course, the same agency. I began to realize this very popular agency was like McDonald´s - too many for our own good and not much in the way of quality.
When I found Jim, I was at my wits end. I knew as soon as I spoke with him, however, that he was different. He immediately understood what my husband and I were looking for, what our price range was, etc. He NEVER made me feel like we weren´t worth the effort, he ALWAYS looked out for our best interests, he NEVER made us drive miles and miles just to look at a place before we asked him to meet us there so we could go inside! He did the preliminary "looking" himself, keeping all of our criteria in mind. He was fantastic!
With Jim´s help and expertise, we quickly settled on our first home. He helped us every step of the way, was always kind, experienced, professional, and on top of every detail with great precision! When we decided to move some years later, Jim was our "go-to" guy, bar-none. Again, he helped us every step of the way, was patient, helped us sell our house during the downturn of the economy and went above and beyond an agent´s responsibilities to his clients to see that we did well in both selling our old home and buying our new one this past 2010.
My husband and I cannot thank Jim Gross enough for his dedication, his hard work, his honesty, his integrity, his expertise. We highly recommend him to anyone seeking help in real estate. He´s the BEST!
