Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Bonita Springs, FL.
I actually found Jim on Zillow. I was also dealing with another realtor at the time as I was looking for a home in a certain community. Jim was far more responsive and thorough than the other individual, so we switched our seach to him. It was a wise decision.
Although we made the offer while in Florida, we are completing the deal while I am in Ohio. I feel so much more confident that any request that I make of Jim, that he will get right on it. His approach is low key but efficient. After the offer was made, he took photos with his IPad and sent them to us. At every step along the way he was emailing documents to us.
I would recommend Jim whether you are buying or selling.
I was interested in finding great deals on homes in Southwest Florida. Jim Neal was referred to me, and from the first time I contacted him, he was knowledgeable, easy to deal with, well known in the industry, and has great character.
Together, he helped me locate homes in Estero, Bonita Springs, Naples, Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Lehigh Acres, and even Marco Island. It was a vast area to cover, but Jim Neal proved he had above-average knowledge of the markets in each location.
Anyone looking for a real estate agent in the southwest Florida area, I would highly recommend Jim Neal. He is very professional and an all around great guy. You will not regret it.

Jim was very informed, committed and easy to work with, knew the areas in detail and helped tremendously with my decision making process. I would not hesitate to use or recommend Jim Neal to anyone who is interested in looking for and or buying a property.
With his easy and non aggrasive demenor Jim has been a very comfortable agent to work with. He has a been more tha a real estate agent for us.

We will have no hesitation in recommending him to our friends for all their real estate needs.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $250K in Bonita Springs, FL.
From the start Jim knew what type of home we wanted to buy. Every home that he presented met our requirements. Some of the homes weren't of our taste but all of them had the features that we wanted. He didn't waste our time by showing homes that didn't meet our requirements. He returned our phone calls immediately and he had an extensive knowledge of the area that we wanted to live in. He tried very hard to find a home that we wanted to live in and he succeeded. When he did, he continued in a very professional manner to negotiate the price that we wanted to pay with the buyer and his agent. Again he was extremely successful and we bought the property that we wanted at the price we wanted to pay. Throughout this entire process Jim remained positive, professional and friendly. I would highly recommend Jim to anyone looking to buy or sell a home
Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $125K in Estero, FL.
Being from Toronto Canada, I came across Jims name, along with several others on the internet. We were looking for a condo in the Naples - Fort Myers area.
We arrived in Naples and had an appointment with another agent from another agency. After choosing several listings and passing this information onto this agent prior to our arrival in Florida, the first agent showed us several condos, not on our list, that we did not like. When we asked when we should meet on the 2nd day, this agent put us off saying he had other plans. When we got back to our hotel.
I called Jim and explained the situation, gave him our updated list and he said he could help us any time.
The first place Jim took us to was on our list and was in one of the communities that the first agent took us to. We very much liked this first condo, but Jim said lets take a look at some others so we could compare units. Jim showed us several other communities but we settled on the first condo located in the Bella Terra community located in Estero.
We were so glad we called Jim. His knowledge of this area was second to none. Jim looked after the closing for us as we were back in Toronto Canada at that time. Jim went above and beyond doing all the little things. Since we were not there for the closing, Jim arranged for a lock-smith to have the locks changed. A new air de-humidifier that we had purchased at Jims suggestion, he stored at his personal residence and had it up and running once the closing date had come and gone.
We have recommended to several friends already and, needless to say, we will keep Jim as our Florida real estate agent !!!
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Estero, FL.
I purchased a home in Florida through Jim Neal in Dec. 2013. Jim is very professional, he replies to text, emails, and phone calls almost immediately. He listened to my needs throughout the home buying process and found me the perfect place! Being from PA made the travel to/from Florida challenging for closing etc.; Jim also did the closing for me onsite and we handled all the needed paperwork via FedEx and online. What's even more impressive is his service after the sale. Jim set me up with an agent for home owners insurance and with all other Florida contacts needed. He also helped me lease the home after the sale. In the future he has offered to help me connect with lawn care and pool maintenance services until I can make my permanent move to Florida. I would most definitely recommend Jim Neal for your RE needs!!
