Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $300K in Mechanicsville, VA.

I would highly recommend James to anyone wishing to sell their home at the highest possible price and in the shortest length of time. He exhibited the utmost in professionalism and far exceeded my expectations. James is very knowledgeable of the real estate market and demonstrated this as he reviewed comps with me and patiently explained the home selling process. James has a keen eye for what it takes to sell a home and a knack for home staging. The pictures that he took of my home were beautiful and really showcased the positive features that the home had to offer. When we discussed list price, I recall James saying, “If we price the home appropriately, it will sell quickly and at top dollar….trust me”. Well, James earned my trust many, many times over. He was able to sell my home in 3 days and at top dollar as he promised!! The purchase price was nearly spot-on with his recommended list price!!! James was always readily available to answer any questions that I had and did an outstanding job keeping me abreast of the process. From the beginning, I felt as if James had my best interest at heart and valued me as a client. He’s truly among the best of the best in real estate!  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Westover, Richmond, VA.

James is extremely thorough, knowledgeable, and professional real estate agent. He has a vast knowledge of the Richmond market, negotiation, suggesting improvements, staging, etc. James kept in constant contact with us throughout the selling process and we never waited longer than an hour for a return call, day or night. By no fault of James, we went through 3 purchase contracts before finally closing on our home. Through all of the challenges, James' enthusiasm to sell our home never faltered and his positive attitude kept us encouraged. We sold our home while we were out of town e and James' handled all of our repairs, maintenance and inspections. His professional contacts and willingness to handle the details was invaluable especially since we were 100’s of miles away. There wasn't a challenge we faced that James wasn't willing to tackle. By the end of our sale experience, we truly felt like we'd found a friend in James. I would recommend James to anyone looking for a first class realtor.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Midlothian, VA.

James was an outstanding realtor. He made us feel like we were his only clients and was extremely quick in responding to any communication we had with him. As first time home buyers, James was patient and took the time to explain to us any procedural and clerical inquiries we had. He has a great eye for houses, and was quick to point out any flaws homes we were looking at had. James is extremely honest, and he completely looks out for the best interests of his clients. Instead of pushing a subpar home to get a sale, James will point out deal breakers and try to find you the best home in your budget. James and his team also took care of a lot of the legwork that most others realtors will not once the home is under contract. He stays with you the whole way. His negotiation skills are excellent and he provided us the house at the exact price point we wanted. James Strum is an outstanding realtor and shows true concern and compassion for his clients. He is a refreshingly honest person who I would use again in a heartbeat. Highly recommended.  More Less
