Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $900K in North Queen Anne, Seattle, WA.
As a US expat living overseas with my wife, a Chinese national, I was fortunate to find Jim’s contact details online while searching for a new home in the US. Jim seemed to really stand out from the other property agents we came in contact with. He was very informed and current in his market research, extremely cordial and patient--and most important to my wife and me as overseas buyers--very thorough and resourceful in answering all our questions about the process of buying a home in the US, which was quite new to us. When we made the trip from Asia to meet with Jim to view properties, Jim made sure to schedule in a block of time on successive days throughout the entire duration of our trip to ensure that we were able to see enough properties that fit out requirements, and to also help us refine our criteria as we continued our property search. At the start of each day we spent with him, Jim would provide us with a small booklet of information on the homes we were to see and the neighborhoods in which they were located, which was very helpful in given us a better understanding of the homes and districts we had identified, thanks to Jim’s extremely helpful input and local knowledge. By the end of the week that we spent with Jim inspecting both houses and condos, we felt prepared and confident about purchasing a home Jim had shown us early on in our search. Through his extensive network of fellow-brokers and consultants, Jim was able to put us in touch with mortgage brokers, home inspectors and insurers, and other specialists who were key to our closing on our new home in a timely manner. From start to finish, the time it took from our initial search to our close on our new home was a bit over six weeks, with all subsequent discussions with Jim after our first visit handled remotely while we were oversea, thanks to Jim’s fantastic responsiveness by phone, email, and SMS. Even after we closed on our new home, Jim went far above and beyond what you would expect a typical real estate agent to do by looking after our home in our absence and ensuring that security—and even some queries from our new neighbors—were handled in our absence. Indeed, my wife and I have been so impressed by Jim’s sincerity and his commitment that we have decided to retain Jim as our property leasing agent. How fortunate we were as overseas homebuyers to find a real estate broker and leasing agent of Jim’s caliber, and someone we are pleased to today consider a good friend.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $300K in Roosevelt, Seattle, WA.
Being divorced and living on my own in an apartment for a year, I felt the urge to buy a small old house that I could nurture, love, and restore. An internet search for Seattle area houses led me to Jim's website and I'm so happy that I found him. Jim was always there to answer my questions at every stage of the process, and he pointed things out that I never would have known to ask. I really feel like Jim had my best interests in mind. He researched several properties within my price range and was very patient with me as we drove from house to house, hour after hour, always with a smile on his face. He is a good negotiator and I believe that he helped me get a good deal on a great old house that I can pour my heart and soul into. Jim was exactly the right person to help me get exactly the right house.

Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $200K in Redmond, WA.
As a first time home buyer I found the process a little intimidating and overwhelming. I appreciated Jim's patience. He never made me feel rushed or like I had to make a decision too quickly although he did advise me when the market picked up. I also appreciated his willingness to point out potential problems in some of the properties we looked at. Things I never would have noticed. I knew he wasn't just out to make a quick sale but was protecting my interests. Once I found the property I wanted to make an offer on he was on top of everything and so the whole process went very smoothly. I would recommend Jim without reservation.

Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $100K in Bitter Lake, Seattle, WA.
I didn't have a lot of money to spend, but Jim still treated me like a millionaire. Properties in my price range can be difficult to find but he used his extensive network to find me a great deal. And this took a while, believe me, but he was very patient, showing me multiple properties, not pressuring me to hurry up and buy, etc. Much appreciated. His knowledge of the city, its properties and their history was very impressive. Being a first time buyer, he also helped lead me through the process step by step to get it all done. He is a very friendly person and fun to be around and now that my search for a home has ended successfully, I kind of miss hanging out with the guy! How many agents can you say that about?
