Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Saint Louis, MO.
Jim has been so helpful through selling my house. He goes in detail on the process of selling in any manner that you're willing to sell. I'll recommend him for anything in the real estate market. We only had our house on 5144 Heege rd. for a matter of weeks before we found someone who was interested and a little later bought it.

If you want to sell or buy a house Jim is the person to see!!! I've used Jim to sell 2 houses and buy 1 house. He is very knowedgable in all areas of real estate and pointed out many things that I would not have noticed or taken into consideration. Jim is the ultimate professional,very courteous, easy to get a hold of and always looking out for your best interest.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $75K in Tower Grove South, Saint Louis, MO.
Jim Potterfield and his wife Kate did a wonderful job in helping sell our mother's home. We got a good price and they were able to help me through the entire process which was great since I had not gone through it for a number of years.
Sold a Single Family home in 2006 for approximately $150K in Holly Hills, Saint Louis, MO.
Jim did an excellent job for us by finding a buyer for our home at a time when the market was depressed. Our home had some water damage but he was able to sell it quickly for us and get a satisfactory price. We highly recommend Jim if you are looking to sell your home.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $125K in Saint Louis, MO.
Jim is extremely knowledgeable about the St. Louis area especially South County and South St. Louis. He was very helpful with suggestions to market our house. The whole process went very smoothly including the Title Company being next door to his office on Hampton. He was always available for any questions and kept us up to date on any new information.
Sold a Single Family home in 1997 for approximately $75K in Bevo Mill, Saint Louis, MO.
I've used Jim for a total of three sales/purchases, most recently in 1997 when he sold my dad's house in the city. (I've been in my current home for more than 20 years with no plans to move.) No regrets at all with any of my dealings with Jim. His suggested listing prices were fair and realistic, and he never pushed me to spend unnecessary money just to make for a quick sale for himself. I also always appreciated how punctual he was for appointments. The last time he was our buying agent, he said something that I remember to this day: Beware of buying a house or property for romantic things we'll never have time for. That was prudent, timeless advice that my wife and I have since applied to many purchases as homeowners. I'd recommend Jim and Kate to anyone buying or selling.
Sold a Multi Family home in 2000 in South Hampton, Saint Louis, MO.
I have known Jim for years, I have worked with him for at least 15 years and he has sold a multi family for me, as well. The process was quick and easy. He is very knowledgeable and professional, I respect his honesty and value his opinion.
I worked with Jim on a few different houses and he is honest, trustworthy and very professional. He knows the St. Louis area incredibly well. I would and do refer him to anyone who is in the housing market. I am currently working with him on listing my fathers house, and I feel I am in good hands!
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $25K in Benton Park West, Saint Louis, MO.
Sold my house fast even though it was not in a popular neighborhood. I've used Jim in the past and he is the most knowledgeable agent about the Saint Louis City real estate market. He's very responsive--one time he came with a sales contract to sign on New Year's Eve!
