Great experience! He was very knowledgable and worked very hard to find me the perfect home. As a first-time homebuyer, I am not sure what I would have done without him. He found exactly what we were looking for! Thanks so much!!

Outstanding Realtor. I really enjoyed James personal service he was available every time I called or emailed. . He was able to negotiate a settlement that both buyer and seller could agree on even though we were pretty far apart originally. I have used his service on two purchases and am thinking about a third and will continue to use his services.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Spanish Fort, AL.
Great experience! He was very knowledgable and worked very hard to find me the perfect home. He also worked after the completion of the sale to ensure that I had properly handled all home-buying related issues. As a first-time homebuyer, I am not sure what I would have done without James!
We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Mobile, AL
I contacted and spoke to Mr. Henderson in reference to possibly purchasing a home in the Mobile area. Mr. Henderson asked me to text my email address to his cell phone, so he could send me a list of homes. It has been over 2 weeks, and I still have not received that list or a phone call from Mr. Henderson. This is very unprofessional.

Ms. Simmons. I greatly appologize for not contacting you as promised. I have went thru my cell phone and check every contact I have for your email and did not locate it. This is not the way I conduct business as my clients will tell you so again am very sorry you had this experience. If I can ever be of service in the future please let me know.

My husband I recently moved from our lifetime home state of Ohio and James was our realtor. The first meeting with James was like he was family. He showed us numerous homes in our price range. We fell in love with the second home he showed up. We also came to learn James is an avid admirer of the Satsuma Fire Department. He has many years experience with the Department and is very proud of the men and women that represent the volunteer service in Satsuma. We also explained to James that our youngest son Cody remained in Ohio to finish his senior year in high school and the balance of his training at Stark State University. Upon Cody's arrival this summer, James came to our home, picked Cody up and took him to the station and out for a boat ride on the river. James was also capable of drawing the whole fire unit together for Cody's senior picture at Steel Creek Lodge. My husband and I can't ever imagine having worked with anyone more wonderful than James Henderson. We HIGHLY recommend him.

after dealing with a few other agents in the area that had very little of my interrest at heart and more interested in making a sale, I was lucky enough to meet James Henderson. We were from Ohio and I knew nothing of the area other than where my husband would be working. James took the time to explain all the areas around Mobile including indept history which was very impressive, he understood what i was looking for and that i was also on my own as far as purchasing a home within a time crunch, my husband was in germany for 3 months and would be returning to mobile in april to begin working, it was the end of jan and i needed to find a house. james was so patient and understanding of my hesitations taking time to email my husband details in germany whenever there were questions. he took the time to work around my schedule of going back and forth to ohio and ala. finaally after i would say 80 homes (talk about a patient soul) which i believe was every listing in our range we found the perfect home. James went to work negotiating and getting things set to close in a hurry. My husband returned home just in time to close and move into our new home. Believe me when James say he is the hardest working agent you will ever know he is not kidding. I am more than blessed to have found James Henderson and would reccommend him highly to anyone looking for the perfect agent

I am a small individual investor that has worked with Mr. Henderson for more than 5 years. Although I am currently working in Iraq, my wife and family are still living in the Mobile area. I started out working with 3 realtors and quickly realized Mr. Henderson's value, and began working exclusively with him after less than 3 months. During this time frame, I have been shown and made bids on more than 35 separate properties, and eventually purchased more than 10 properties through my work with Mr. Henderson. My rational for limiting my work to Mr. Henderson stems from my confidence in his ability to meet my normally short time frames for action. I can call him today request additional information and/or extra property pictures, and normally get this information on the same day. Mr. Henderson's ability and willingness to go overboard in his assistance to me and my endeavors, has set me on a path to financial freedom that I could only dream of 10 years ago. I have and will continue to work with him and would recommend him to anyone that is looking for investment type income through Real Estate and/or simply to purchase a home.
