My husband and I were first time home buyers. We had ideas of what we wanted and what we could realistically do in terms of DIY home improvements. We worked with Drew and he helped us find the PERFECT house. With a background in design each time we went into a house he had ideas of what we could do to modify/update/redo each space into what we wanted. Drew is also very honest and upfront about each house, what it was worth and what would likely need to be done to it. It was refreshing to have his honest opinion, he truly cared about finding us the right house for us and it never felt like he was just trying to sell us on something. He was always available to take us our to view houses and talk with us about what was best for us. We enjoyed working with Drew on our first home buying experience, he made it easy and fun. We could not have imagined a better experience or a better first home. I will continue to recommend Drew from Jim Shaffer's team to anyone looking for a house in the Royal Oak/Berkley/Ferndale area.
