I take pride in giving my customers the best real estate experience possible. I love meeting new people and I will work hard to meet your highest expectations. I'm readily available 7 days a week by phone, e-mail or text. E-mails are sent to my phone, so I'm always quick to respond no matter which way you choose to contact me.



When working with Buyers:

* I check for new listings daily and only send you homes that fit your criteria rather then sending you 50 to choose from.

* My comparative market analysis (home comparing report) are always free. I will help you understand the market values in the neighborhood that you wish to buy a home.

* I keep you updated regularly whether we are still in the process of finding a home or if we already have a contract that we are looking to close. When dealing with short sales, this process can take awhile but I will touch based with the listing agent and relay this information back to you.

When working with Sellers:

* Advising my customer of the suggested sell price by using comparative analysis reports but ultimately going with the price that my customer feels comfortable listing it for. If we receive little or no actvity, I will recommend that we lower the price so that our listing does not become staginent and ineffective.

* Advising my customers of all the media outlets that will be used to expose the property to the public and providing routine updates with activity feedback.

* If selling your home for short of what you owe (short sale), then I will work with your lenders to come to terms with the offer that we've received. My goal is to allow you to sell her home before it goes into foreclosure..

    Showed home in 2014 in Balm, Wimauma, FL 33598.
    It was a pleasure working with James. The one thing that stands out with us is his ability to get back with us in such a timely manor. We know he has other things to do or may even have a life outside of real estate, but he is excellent at getting back with us on questions we had. Thanks James and thanks also to your dad for his knowledge.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Old Seminole Heights, Tampa, FL.
    James walked me though the whole process of buying a house from step one to closing and explained everything along the way. I would definitely recommend someone working with James if they are looking to buy a house or other real estate needs.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $125K in Plant City, FL.
    James was wonderful to work with. He responded in a timely manner, was always eager to show us homes no matter the lcation or price! Best of all he never pushed past or budget point unless asked of us or we made the decision to go above our price point.
