Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $650K in Hilton Head Island, SC.
We had been vacationing on HHI for many years (and thinking about purchasing a vacation/short term rental property for almost that long). In 2010 we had finally decided to make our investment. Our longtime friends who live on HHI full time and also own a short term rental property there raved about their realtor, Jim Paris.
We found Jim to be most knowledgeable about the real estate market. He showed us many different properties in order to help us make our dream come true. With Jim's expertise, we purchased a beautiful home in a great location.
Jim's help did not end there. The house was in definite need of some renovations. We were not quite sure where to begin. Jim spoke to some clients who had been renting the property for many years and asked them for suggestions for improving the property. We took their suggestions to our contractor and could not be happier with the results.
Once the property was renovated we had new pictures taken for the rental website by the most talented local photographer (recommended to us by Jim Paris of course) and our rentals have been booking solidly ever since.
We would highly recommend Jim Paris without reservation for all of your real estate needs. He is a true professional who goes above and beyond.

Jim Paris is an exceptional professional in the Real Estate profession. He has through knowledge of the Hilton Head area. What sets Jim apart from many realtors is his listening skills... he really listens and follows through on what YOU are looking for and not what he has for sale. You can't go wrong in listing or buying your house from a true professional and a really nice man.

How did I ever get so lucky to have Jim Paris as my agent? My first phone call was to an agent that was listed on my google search. He did not sell on HH Island and he quickly referred me to a guy who best knows HH real estate - Jim Paris.
I actually worked with Jim for quite some time before I purchased my investment/ retirement ocean-oriented home in North Forest Beach. Jim had the local real estate knowledge that I was lookng for in an agent. He also knew so much about each individual property: who built it, quality of the builder - in fact he remembers watching the house being constructed.
Jim made the purchase process so easy. His contacts in terms of lawyers, bankers, mortgage brokers, builders and management companies was so impressive that he made my business equation feasible.
I would recommend Jim to anyone looking for real estate on Hilton Head. In fact, my brother worked with Jim after my purchase and he too is a new home owner in North Forest Beach.
Lastly, I think of Jim Paris as a really good friend who also happens to have a career in the real estate business.

Jim Paris is that rare exception of someone who truly has a gift for what he does. He listens carefully to what you tell him and then he delivers.
My wife is French. After looking at a number of houses she whispered to me "The houses are nice but they're all made out of wood." To which I replied "Well what else are you going to make a house out of?" She smiled and explained "In France we make things to last. Houses, for example, are always made out of brick and stone." I smiled and said "Well, honey you're not in France any more." Jim heard the conversation and immediately took us to the house I am writing this from. It was a vintage ocean-side ranch made out of cinder block and brick that most people wouldn't have even considered. We immediately fell in love with it. That was over ten years ago. The house, like our friendship with Jim, is solid as a rock and built to last.
Jim is AWESOME!!!! After many months of looking for just the right house for our needs, Jim came through with multiple options but made sure we landed on the right house for our family. We have already referred many prospective clients/friends to use Jim as the source to use when buying real estate on HHI. We are still very close to Jim as a friend over a year after our purchase and wish we had someone like him with all of our other home purchases. The relationship with Jim begins when you first say hello but I know it will never end with his unbelievable personal approach, attention to detail, and genuine interest in your needs. Before you know it, he will be a part of your family!!
We have bought two homes with Jim's prefessional help, one as our private residence and one as a short term rental. Jim was extremely helpful in pointing us in the right direction and 12 years later we couldn't be happier in North Forest Beach.
As a longtime resident, Jim understands the market and works closely with you to find the perfect home for your exact needs. I highly recommend you to contact Jim and make him your choice of Realtors on Hilton Head Island.
We've worked with Jim several times over the past 10 years and have been most pleased with his services. Jim is personable, making the experience of purchasing real estate on Hilton Head Island a pleasant experience. Jim has been a realtor on the island for many years and knows what he is talking about. He makes himself available to his clients and keeps in touch afterwards. We were looking to purchase a rental property in Forest Beach and he found a condo for us that is hopping busy!! We've recommended Jim to friends of ours and they were as happy with his help as we were.
Jim is an honest, trustworthy agent who has spent most of his life on Hilton Head Island. We started looking at properties with Jim in 2005 as prices were escalating out of control. We decided to take a time out and told Jim that it may be awhile before we purchased, but that if he wanted to keep us apprised of the market we would appreciate it. Jim did just that and kept in contact with us . When prices came back to realistic levels, Jim was ready to go to work for us. He had taken the time to understand exactly what we wanted and called to tell us he had found exactly the house we wanted. Upon our inspection, he was exactly right and we purchased in 2008.
