Jim and his office associates were very professional, and their expertise resulted in a successful sale. Jim was responsive to our needs and kept us updated throughout the process. The documents were sent without delay and the process was smooth right up to the closing.

Sold a home in 2015 in Oak Park, MI 48237.

I was impressed by Jim's knowledge of the current housing market as well as his professionalism. His recommendations were spot on and my former home sold more quickly than I had expected. I was very pleased with Jim and his entire team.

Jim and his team are extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. Jim helped me buy my first house and was very responsive to my various questions. We also plan on using Jim to sell our next house.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Ferndale, MI.

We were so excited to work with Jim! I watched as the houses on my street went up for sale and were sold by Jim. I called him as soon as we knew we'd like to list and we knew we wanted to work with him. Handsome, funny, and a great track record of sales in our neighborhood are why we choose him to sell our home. My 3 star rating is because the sale portion was great but the buying portion was a disappointment. However, he did tell us he has buyers agents and we recall him telling us at least once that he only likes to work with sellers. The odd thing was he didn't turn us over to his Buyer's agents. Also, his schedule is very full, he didn't show initiative finding properties for us (just sent us the MLS listings, which is automated), and he didn't add anything while showing us around properties other than his humor (and he is very funny!). I know we missed out on seeing a few homes this summer that listed and accepted offers the same day. He says 'his style' is to let you look around. I was very disappointed that I would spot water, or odd smells, or issues with the home before he did. He'll sell the crap out of your home so call him to sell but find someone else to help you find your new home. We broke the Ferndale record per sq Ft in June with our home sale, which was quickly broke by our neighbor (she called him after reading our success story on Facebook and they sold there home in 48-hours too!).

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Ferndale, MI.

We met Jim before he was "Jim Shaffer Sells Houses," in buying our first home. We simply cannot speak highly-enough of him then AND now. He helped us buy our first home, he then helped us sell that home (at a profit) when we outgrew it; and he did so with outstanding customer service, integrity, good humor and attention to detail.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Bloomfield Hills, MI.

Jim helped us buy our first home together as a family!! As stressful as we prepared ourselves for, Jim made the experience enjoyable and as stress-free as it could be. He will be referred to any of our friends looking for a realtor.

Jim was quick to respond to all communication and his knowledge of the area is incredible. He exceeded all of my expectations and sold our house in 5 days within 5% of asking price. There is no need to look further for an agent whether you are buying or selling.
