Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Inver Grove Heights, MN.
We appreciated Jim's experience and the connections he had to get issues that came up resolved speedily for us. He was always pleasant, friendly, and positive. We lived in our home for 27 years so we appreciated Jim's current knowledge.We purchased a townhome and Jim knew things to be aware of that we did not. Everything came together for a two-week turnaround when both offers were accepted and the two closings book place. We love our townhome now and though we were very happy with Jim, are hoping to not need his services for a very long time!

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Summit Hill, Saint Paul, MN.
I am so grateful to Jim, Jessica and Melissa for their knowledge, hard work, dedication – and patience – in working with me to sell my condo. They are a truly professional team that worked seamlessly together to provide me with a much more positive experience than those I have had in the recent past. It was a potentially challenging sale, due to an unresolved lawsuit filed by our HOA over warranty work needed, but Jim promised he could sell the condo – at fair market value – and he delivered!
His experience and knowledge of both the market and entire process – start to finish – along with his numerous contacts in the industry, provide him with a unique and valuable skill set I would highly recommend to anyone looking to buy or sell. Not only is his confidence in being great at what he does warranted, he’s also genuine, which is important to me. He and his team took the time to answer any questions I had (without making me feel foolish for asking), took my concerns seriously and addressed each as it arose, and Jim cared enough about my comfort level during the process to provide reassurance when that’s what I needed. He earned my confidence and trust, which is probably both the highest compliment and best recommendation I can give.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $325K in Merriam Park, Saint Paul, MN.
Our experience in selling our St. Paul home and in purchasing our new home in Prescott was a truly positive experience due to the professional and dedicated help of Jim Seabold and his staff. The multi-faaceted process came together nearly seamlessly with the help of the coordinated efforts of Jim, even while he worked from his vacation, and his staff. Jim pulled together the pieces of helping us with referrals for financing and preparing our home for showing, working with other realtors, our finance company, and closings, making himself available even to the point of driving across town to help us get the check for our proceeds on the day of closing so we could cover a time-locked home expense. Throughout the entire process Jim remained optomistic and positive as he skillfully negotiated on our behalf and guided us through the more stressful parts of the home-selling and home-buying experience.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $125K in Inver Grove Heights, MN.
My situation was a short sale. My financial institution sent me a website listing realtors that were well versed in short sales. After reading several resumes I decided Jim sounded great and it turned out that he was. He listed my property with highly professional photos and found a pre-qualified buyer in a very short timeframe. His assistant Jessica was awesome to work with. My bank sent the approval letter very quickly but the buyer's lender kept slowing down the process. Jessica hung in there and was able to get 5 extensions from my bank. I know this sale wouldn't have gone through without all the hard work Jessica provided. She remained vigilant and kept providing documentation as needed and we finally had a successful close. Thanks again Jim and Jessica.
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $275K in Inver Grove Heights, MN.
We were very fortunate to find Jim Seabold, although we did plenty of research in advance, and Jim came very highly recommended because of his connections, so the quality of his service did not come as a surprise. Jim quickly adapted to our interests and handled everything for us with minimal instruction. He knew exactly what we wanted, and he made it happen - very quickly. When potential problems surfaced at the bank or with the seller, his team jumped in and took care of issues immediately. We were treated like we were priority #1.
Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $50K in Thomas Dale, Saint Paul, MN.
Jim is an awesome agent!! I needed to sell my house because I had inherited my mothers house and could not afford both places and Jim did an excellent job of doing just that! He never gave up until the job was done and always made me feel very important and comfortable!! He has an excellent staff on board with him and every time I needed to talk to someone they were there for me! I would definately recommend him!!
Jim went above and beyond in helping my wife and I find our dream home. It took us a long time to find what we liked, but Jim insisted that we keep looking until the right home was found. He would provide detailed listings of what we wanted to see and then allowed us to narrow it down. He would keep showing us homes that were at times convenient for us. We appreciated the time and effort he gave to us to make certain we found the right place. He is very knowledgeable about the housing market and has the experience to negotiate very well. He also sold my wife's place in a down market within a couple of months at an acceptable price and negotiated a great deal on our new home. I would highly recommend Jim Seabold and his team to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!
Bought a Single Family home in 2009 in Coon Rapids, MN.
Jim was an absolute pleasure to work with and provided exceptional knowledge of the marketplace and current conditions. Without Jim's keen insight, I am confident that I would not have ended up with as much home as I did within my price range. Jim was also wonderfully pleasant and offerred opinions without discounting my own needs and desires. Over all, I would highly recommend Jim as a Realator of choice in this tough economy.
