- Will never recommend

Bought a home in 2011.
I used Jamie to buy a house through a referral. I would never use this guy again, this was my first home that I bought and it was a very confusing process, he will tell you he is looking out for your interest(he is not your friend he is an agent) but this is his only job and he only gets paid when he makes a sale so please be aware of that.

My Complaints are the following: He showed me a house and looking through it he said that I would have to make an offer in an hour as there was already an offer on the table. This was sales pressure tactic that I did not like, one of the biggest purchases in my life and I was supposed to decide in an hour. He could have said when we arrived at the property there is an offer already in place, do not feel pressured to make an offer but if you do want to put in an offer it will have to be done quickly.

He would send me listings and after I researched them I would find out that they are under contract. He doesn't take the time to research the listings he sent to see if they are under contract. He wasted my time by not doing this.

Upon the final sale he talked me into buying the property at 130,000 instead of 127,000 and take the cash back at closing. As he said cash was always better to have, I didn't need the cash so in my case it was not better to have. As I mentioned this was my first house and there was a lot of details being thrown at me so I wasnt able to make the best decision at the time. Looking back at this later, he should have helped understand the opposing viewpoint, I am now paying interest on a couple thousand dollars more and was this higher price only because he could get a couple hundred dollars more in commission.

After the purchase there was no follow-up he did not call or email me, he took his lock box and didn't knock to see if I needed help he didn't ask if I had any problems nothing. I did have problems with the plumbing and he said that I should have asked for the seller to fix that upon home inspection and I would have to go after the Home Inspector.

For the positive: He is responsive and drove me around to look at properties but this should not be a reason alone to choose him.

My review I will not ever use Jamie again and I recommend do not sign a contract with Jamie and beware he only wants to make a sale.

My other reviews they are more to the point of how I conduct myself.The price point of this client prevented many options.This is a very active market and foreclosures sell quickly.I have no control when offers are received.They found the least expensive Inspector who charged a third of customary cost and spent 45 minutes at the property.This client needed additional funds to close.I present purchase options, people are free to choose what works for them.The difference in the $3000 purchase price is $90 in commission,no incentive on my part.I have delivered service my entire life; certainly,character is displayed not only in day to day routine behavior but especially when there is a bump in the road.Individually,we have expectations, my goal is to understand, meet or exceed those expectations.I thank this person for acknowledging my local knowledge and responsiveness.For me, it is not about the next sale, it is about the next relationship.I truly wish them all the best.

Bought a home in 2014.
Living 800 miles away and building a new dwelling in Murrells Inlet, SC, James went above and beyond his expected duties of a real estate agent. He took the time to show me different locations and inform me on the benefits of each area on the many visits to SC, all prior to signing a contract with him as my agent. Through the process of negotiating a purchase price, settling on the design of the new dwelling and picking out options for it, James was there seeing to every detail and making sure all decisions were documented for my protection. He was my eyes and ears in each stage of building, foundation, framing, permits…..overseeing everything and at the same time, with his comforting, calm voice, explaining the various situations and disruptions that come with new builds. He represented my interest to the degree expected of a paid attorney, warding off the possibility of very real legal problems. I can not thank him enough. I would make it a point to use his services again, even if someone wanted to buy a home from me without a real estate agent, I’d actually say no, my representative is James D’Anna.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Myrtle Beach, SC.
My wife and I wanted to purchase a retirement home in Myrtle Beach, SC moving from Indiana. We desired to work with a realtor with high ranking among the real estate community in the area. We searched the internet and discovered Jaime's bio on Zillow. We emailed Jaime and were pleasantly surprised to promptly receive a phone call from him. His questions and comments easily confirmed the choice as our buyer agent.

What ensued was a protracted search for our dream house. This search entailed multiple trips to the area with attendent innumerous exchanges with Jaime. To his credit he was always professional, cooperative, and informative. His efforts have resulted in our finding and purchasing our dream home.

We highly recommend Jamie and would be confident to ask his help again.

Jamie was very helpful in every aspect of our home buying experience. Being our first home we weren't sure what to expect, but his knowledge helped to make the entire process surprisingly quick & easy. He listened to our needs and took the time to address all of them and eliminate any anxiety we may have had! We would recommend Jamie to anyone!

Bought a home in 2014.
We came across Jamie online while looking for a retirement home in South Carolina. From our first interaction we were very impressed. Dealing with him was more like having a friend in SC rather than a realtor. No call or e mail ever went ignored, or even delayed.. When we went down for a week I brought him a list of more than 18 homes to look at. He was as patient and interested as I've ever seen. After countless homes were not suitable he showed us several he knew and we found our dream home. We went back to NY and Jamie handled everything for us and kept us updated as our home was being built. He even emailed pictures and video to us as the home progressed. I tell everyone I meet about him. You will not find a better realtor.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Conway, SC.
We first met with Jamie to see a house we found online, thinking it was what we wanted to settle for. He talked us through the process step by step, listened to what we wanted, and offered almost fatherly advice, which helped us find our first house as a married couple. Jamie was a blessing to work with and was available at anytime we needed him throughout and even after the closing process. I would highly recommend Jamie to anyone, at any income, and stage of their lives. This man can and will help you find what you truly want.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Myrtle Beach, SC.
Jamie was outstanding! We were first time home buyers out of state and Jamie made the whole process smooth and stress free. It took two months to close from our first contact with him. He was very responsive in communications through emails and phone calls. He was also very knowledgeable, professional and personable. My wife and I feel fortunate that he was our agent and we highly recommend him to anyone. Thanks again Jamie!

Bought a home in 2014.
My wife and I were involved in a Short Sale and Jamie clearly let us know what to expect during the entire process. He took the time to listen to our desires and ultimately identified the ideal property within our stated price range.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Surfside Beach, SC.
Jamie is fantastic. I had never purchased a home before but he made the process easy. Jamie is extremely knowledgeable about the area and he knows what to look for in houses. He was able to point out problems (such as foundation issues) that I never would have noticed and he patiently answered all of my questions - the few times he couldn't answer a question immediately, he did some research and called me with an answer within a few hours. I highly recommend Jamie to anyone looking to purchase a new home, and in particular to first home buyers who need someone with expertise to guide them through the process.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 in Surfside Beach, SC.
Jamie was very helpful. Living out of state, he made it very easy to sell my property and made himself available when I was in the SC area. I would recommend Jamie to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Myrtle Beach area.
