I immediately felt comfortable with his demeanor
I met with James for a consultation where he walked me through the home-buying process (especially as it relates to short-sales), the overall picture of the housing market, and his personal history as a realtor. I immediately felt comfortable with his demeanor and, to date, we have visited properties on two separate occasions. Though I have yet to find my dream home, Jim has increased my understanding of building types, and because of that I have knowledge of more acceptable home options to consider than when I first started out. I am now a more optimistic, potential home owner.

Q&A with Jim

How do you help buyers to find the right properties for them?
I take the time to learn about my clients before beginning any search. That way, clients can be assured that I give them the proper guidance when choosing the right home.
How do you make sure buyers get the best price for the property they are interested in?
I gather all the relevant information available to derive the most defendable offer possible
What do you do to help market the properties your clients are selling?
By offering a wide selection of marketing campaigns, I can tailor the most effective strategies for each home I market.
How do you ensure your sellers get the highest price?
Trust. Clients can trust that I will not let them "over-price" and shoot themselves in the foot. My colleagues trust in me that what I present is always of good value and sound pricing, so their clients can be confident of any offers they decide to put forth.
What do you recommend sellers do to make sure their selling process is smooth?
Each seller is unique and that answer will depend on the circumstances at hand.
