Jim did a fantastic job with all the legal requirements for the sale of our home. He is very knowledgeable about all aspects of RE law for both the seller and the buyer. He was able to work through the sale smoothly, and before we knew it, my husband and I were at the closing. His office staff was wonderful, and we all had a very amiable synergy as we were working our way through the documents. I highly recommend James (Jim) Clarke to anyone for their real estate legal needs.<br/><br/>~ Betsy Maniotis
