“Being from out of town, we really needed a realtor that was knowledgeable about the area. Jim was that and more. He was so kind and helpful, and we were able to find our perfect ski home in only two days. Thanks for everything!” – Dr. Brad Strimling& Family, Chicago, IL
“From the start, Jim gave me his professional, unvarnished opinion on where the market was and what I could expect for my house. That’s the kind of candor I appreciate. He gave me the facts and then helped me arrive at a sales plan I could live with and I made a new friend in the bargain.” – Dr. George Schaefer, Dunedin, FL
“As a Seller, I was delighted with Jim’s knowledge, professionalism and most importantly, his ability to get property sold! Jim has now successfully sold four properties on our behalf but perhaps the most impressive sale was our most recent – not only did he find the Buyer (actually, multiple Buyers) for our Trappeurs condo but we closed within 8 weeks of our original instruction. Thanks Jim! ” – Paul & Louise Stananought – United Kingdom
