Jim was very responsive to our needs and helped us through the process at all times. While we have not completed a home buying experience with him yet, I am sure we will in the future. Very honest and realistic when walking through the house during a showing.
Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $175K in Fleetwood, PA.
My husband and I were able to purchase our first home with Jim's assistance. We could not have done it without his help. Being first time home buyers, we were unsure of the entire process and had millions of questions. Jim took the time to make sure we understood each step of the process and that all our questions were answered prior to the purchase of our home. We would highly recommend him!
Jim provided real estate expertise regarding a rental property I wanted to acquire, rent and subsequently sold. He was instrumental in all three processes. I would absolutely recommend Jim as an excellent realtor and as a great person to know as well.
Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $300K in Coplay, PA.
Jim was a pleasure to work with. I heard all the nightmares from co-workers about how stressfull buying and selling a home is so I was expecting the worst. But Jim made the process of both selling and buying very easy. He kept me informed and explained in detail what to expect. His knowledge and expertise really made it easier for me. I asked a lot of questions and he respoded to all my phone calls immediately. I got the price plus some on the new home I bought and couldn't be happier. If you're looking for a realtor that knows the area, knows how to negotiate, and knows the industry, I would highly recommend Jim Lorah.
Jim has helped me twice in the past. The first time he helped me find a tennant for a rental property. He and his office found the people and also did a background check of them. I have had no issues with them to date.
The other time that Jim helped me was with selling one of my rental properties. Even during this down market, within 2 months of having it listed, we had an offer that I accepted.
Jim was friendly, very knowledgeable, and was always available for questions or updates. I would definitely recommend him for future real estate needs.
Having bought/sold 4 houses over the last 30 years and having dealt woth numerous realtors during that time I can unequivocally state that Jim Lorah is the best agent I have ever dealth with! He is knowledgeable, responsive and makes sound recommendations. He helped us fine our current home and also sold one for us. I never make a real estate move without consulting him.
Bought a Single Family home in 2006 for approximately $150K in Tamaqua, PA.
Jim is a great person to work with. He is attentive and flexible with his schedule. He is not pushy, and truly wants you to get a good deal as a buyer. We bought our home almost 6 years ago, and I would not hesitate to use him again.
Sold a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $125K in Slatington, PA.
After a few months of no activity at all, I changed our listing to Prudential and Mr Lorah handled our new listing. I can't say enough about how Jim handled our listing in a professional and proactive manner. We were out of state and Jim helped us in so many ways that helped us to get this property sold and closed in less then 45 days at a full list price. I would use Jim again if I needed to sell a property in the Allentown/Slatington area. You can't go wrong giving Mr Lorah your listing or asking him to help you find a home.
Through most of the time from listing to closing, I was living out-of-state. Mr. Lorah handled dealing with not only the buyer and his agent, but also the FHA appraiser, and contractors hired to do work to meet FHA requirements. Because of problems with the FHA people and their lack of customer service skills, he represented me at the final closing. I have already recommended Mr. Lorah to others in his area because of his incredible service to me.
