When Jim Dolanch used to sit around the dinner table, bored to tears, his family would be discussing their days at the office. Jim would fidget in his chair hoping the conversation would wind down in time to get outside and throw the ball around with his father before sunset. But, since his Father, Mother, Sister and Grandfather were all in the same business you can imagine there were times when a little boy like Jim could grow impatient waiting.

The funny thing is, years later, when Jim was in college he began to view those dinner conversations a little differently. It happened kind of slowly at first. There Jim was sitting in on his first real estate class at Kent State University and he was hearing the same things all over again. Lectures on the local market, interest rates, points and escrow all seemed embarrassingly remedial to Jim. "You know, I don't want to say that those college courses were easy because I learned a lot," Jim says, "yet, the truth is I'd heard all of this before, from my family. The whole thing seemed so natural to me." After all, Jim's family has been widely regarded as the experts here in the South Hills real estate market for three generations.

All those years listening to and learning from the best gave him a unique understanding of just how important an investment a home is to a family. And, settling down with a family of his own, Jim also realizes exactly how important an investment a home can be, not just emotionally but financially as well. It was obvious to him, how a real estate professional should be a resource for life not just one transaction.

That's why he always takes the time to find out exactly what his customers are looking for in their transactions. Then, he uses the knowledge of three generations worth of experience to formulate a specific plan geared to achieving results for your individual goals.

Team reviews

My family relocated to the pittsburgh area and Jim was such a great partner throughout the process. He has a great manner about him and knows the area very well. <br/><br/>Jim was very flexible and made time to accommodate my hectic schedule. When it came down the the closing, Jim's team was outstanding and kept the process moving along and took care of all the details. He and his team are real pro's.
