Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Ferndale, MI.
Jim was extremely helpful in providing the necessary research, getting our house sold quickly and for the highest amount possible. I would recommend Jim Shaffer to anyone looking to buy/sell in the Royal Oak, Berkley or Ferndale area
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Royal Oak, MI.
Primary point of contact: Drew Mahar
Drew from Jim's team was extremely helpful.... even at first during the uncertainty whether I was even going to buy or not Drew was extremely tentative and willing to show me any home I was interested in... Through the entire process he was always available and answered any question and provided the level of service beyond what I expected during the buying experience. Drew has an excellent knowledge of the Oakland county area where I was looking.
Even after the sale has closed and I moved in to the new home Drew has still been available and helpful.
Horrible communication skills doesn't return calls. NOT at all in communication with his staff they say one thing his response is I was unaware. Went with a different agent house sold in two weeks! Keith Webber
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Beverly Hills, MI.
Jim and his team were GREAT.
They listed and sold my house in 6 days and got a full price offer!
Even though I am quite familiar with the real estate industry I had lots of questions and was worried about every step of the process. Jim and his team eased my mind and took the time to take my calls and emails and answer all of my questions. I would highly recommend them to anyone buying or selling their home!

Jim and associates did a great job selling our house. He had a lot of suggestions, very respectfully and professionally phrased, about what we should do to prepare our house for viewings. We were kept informed of the current status of the process throughout all stages, and the showing appointment system was very easy to use. We had a good experience buying this home through another realtor, but based on this experience the purchase of our next home will definitely be through the local Keller-Williams office, wherever that may be.

I purchased a house in Ferndale using Matt Kraft of Jim Shaffer & Associates. They helped me find a house in a very challenging market and guided me through the whole process. Very professional and knowledgeable.

I worked with Drew Mahar out of Jim Shaffer's real estate firm.
Drew (and the rest of the team) were absolutely excellent. After working with someone who was looking to quick sale us from another real estate company, I found Drew by accident after making an inquiry through Zillow.
Drew and his team did everything they could to make sure they found us the perfect house. Drew must've showed us 40 houses before we settled on one.
Drew was patient, knowledgeable, helpful, reliable, considerate, and overall a great guy to talk to. We have recommeded him to several family members and friends. I will work with Drew when we look for our next house someday.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Berkley, MI.
My wife and I had the great experience of having Jim help us purchase a home in Berkley. After all of the horror stories that friends have had in dealing with real estate agents it was a very welcomed surprise when we started working with Jim. He understood exactly what my wife and I were looking for in a home, only showed us properties of which we were interested and were within our price range (which a LOT of agents will disregard!), was ALWAYS available to talk, and put ZERO pressure on us. Jim's assertiveness and attention to detail are excellent - traits that are key in a very hot market like today (you cannot 'wait a few days' on ANY homes! They are selling in less than 48hrs in a lot of communities). I have already recommended Jim to many friends/coworkers - and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2014 in Royal Oak, MI.
Jim and his team executed the listing and sale of our Royal Oak home in the utmost professional manner. I would recommend Jim and his team to anyone considering selling their home or shopping for a new one. In fact I have referred Jim to several friends who were as satisfied as my husband and I.
