“We contacted Jim after a referral from our financial advisor. We were interested in listing our home for sale and ultimately buying a smaller home. Jim encourages us to fin and purchase our “new” home and then list and sell our existing home. This was perfect advice for us. Jim tirelessly researched and showed us homes while maintaining a very positive attitude and sense of humor. He was sensitive to our special circumstances and always supportive. His is truly a man of integrity. I feel that we gained a friend as well as a Realtor.”
