Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Hope, Providence, RI.
Jim is always on his game! I was able to sell my home immediately and find the residence of my dreams in no time. Every detail and item covered in the process made me feel comfortable and confident in my decision to relocate. Their full knowledge of the area, availability and helpful tips made it so easy this time around!! Thank you Jim and Nancy !!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Warwick, RI.
Working with Jim was an outstanding experience. He is knowledgable, courteous, has a great presentation style, and is very responsive.

This was my first selling experience, and I had talked to a couple of other potential listing agents in the area. Jim showed up with all the homework done at our first meeting, and treated my listing with the same detailed attention throughout the process. Ultimately, I was able to take an offer in 7 days, and sell my home for more than I had originally anticipated.

I absolutely look forward to working with him again for my future needs.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Warwick, RI.
Jim (DeRentis) helped us with the purchase of our first home. We now refer to him as the House Whisperer, because he was able to artfully help us find a home that is perfect for us -and we had a VERY complex situation based on dual work & commuting needs. As first time home buyers, every step had the potential to be equally exciting and terrifying; however, working with Jim made this process enjoyable, effective, and efficient. He provided expert opinion, met with us as often as needed, and responded to every email and every text very quickly. We can't say enough great things about Jim and will be referring him to anyone we come across who is selling/purchasing a home!!!!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $750K in Blackstone, Providence, RI.
We worked with Jim to downsize. He helped us sell our large single family property on the East Side and purchase a condo on College Hill. Jim had the experience and knowledge to price our property accurately and market it through personal contacts and broad internet exposure. He hired a professional interior designer to stage our house to present it at its best and make it most attractive to buyers. When our house went on the market the photos looked great on Residential Properties website. Jim did far more than expected. He is very well connected in Providence and was able to talk about our property on a radio program at great length and detail. With his thorough marketing efforts he brought many qualified prospective buyers to our home and within 2 weeks we had an offer that led to a sale.

Jim helped us make a big transition in our lives and we are grateful for his thoughtfulness, knowledge, and hard work. Thanks Jim!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $675K in Wayland, Providence, RI.
Jim De Rentis was our broker for the sale of our home on the Eastside of Providence. Jim had the house sold 4 days after the house was listed. I found Jim to be extremely professional and well prepared. Jim had a number of good ideas to make the house more attractive and presentable. Jim's team, especially his stager and videographer were top notch.

When we first interviewed Jim, he was extremely well prepared, explained in great deal the process of selling a home, had a booklet of comparable sales in the area and a marketing presentation; as a result of his preparedness and professionalism we selected Jim to be our broker.

Bought a Vacant Land home in 2012 in West End, Providence, RI.
Working in Real Estate, I am a tough critic when it comes to others in the field... Having said that, there is no one I trust more with my personal business than Jim DeRentis (and, of course, Nancy). I have used him before, I will use him again, and I recommend him to any and all in the greater Providence Area.

I have used him a resource for finding trends and specific market data. And I have also retained him for a recent purchase. He is always available, responsive, and tied into the area. He has the knowledge to negotiate effectively for you. An all around class act second to none.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $1.225M in College Hill, Providence, RI.
Jim has made our move to Providence from the mid-west seamless. From the first trip orienting us to Rhode Island, to helping us find temporary housing and finally our new home, he has been supportive, dedicated to detail and responsive to our needs. As we went through the housing search to purchase, Jim continually demonstrated his market knowledge and matched it to our family's interests and needs. I would highly encourage anyone looking to either sell or purchase a home to put their trust in Jim.

Bought a Multiple Occupancy home in 2012 for approximately $250K in Federal Hill, Providence, RI.
Jim is very knowledgeable and made the process easy and clear for a first time buyer. He has expansive knowledge of Providence homes made sure that I had all of the knowledge that I needed to make a home buying decision. Months after move-in, I'm still very grateful that his advice, support and counsel were right on.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $450K in Rehoboth, MA.
Jim is a fabulous realtor. He quickly targeted exactly what we wanted and planned extremely well-organized days of visiting properties. When we found "the one", he helped us through every step of the process, made sure we got it for the price we wanted, and continued helping as we moved toward closing. I cannot recommend him highly enough. His knowledge, not only of real estate but related issues such as financing, remodeling, etc., is beyond compare. I am sure he would be a topnotch listing agent as well. You simply cannot do better than Jim.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Blackstone, Providence, RI.
This was my second time working with Jim DeRentis. Over the years, I have recommended him to many friends and colleagues. I was in a time-crunch to find a house and felt stressed and anxious. I turned to Jim for help. Jim found the perfect home for me and my family, in the neighborhood we wanted, at the right price, and ushered us through the process from initial viewing to price negotiation to signing in under three months. Thanks to his professionalism and expert guidance, my home-buying experience was smooth, swift and stress-free. And I could not be happier in my new home. It is always a pleasure to work with Jim. He loves his work and is excellent at what he does. I can't recommend him highly enough.
