Showed home in 2014 in Grainwood, Prior Lake, MN 55372.
For years we have been looking at different homes on line and other areas to live, never really feeling like we had figured out where or what we wanted. We met Jim at an open house on the lake and were introduced to lake living and all the benefits as well as possible regrets. With our permission Jim set us up with email updates on lake/water properties that came up for sale in the area, we could easily look through all of the listings, and watch for updates and changes. Jim was respectful and let us reach out to him when we were ready to talk about home buying. From the very beggining process of buying a home we have felt that Jim is a good listener and he used his abilities to help us figure out what lifestyle we wanted and what was most important to us. Jim then used his extensive knowledge of lakeshore properties and the market to find us a terrfic home at a fair price.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Central, Minneapolis, MN.
I couldn't have been happier with my experience with Jim. He was an extremely hard worker and I always felt that he had my best interest in mind. He's the best at what he does, and I would absolutely work with him again in the future!
He understands the market and what it takes to maximize sale price for the seller. He also knows lake shore real estate better than most realtors. He is very quick at responding to your needs and works very hard to find you the best house
Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2013 in New Prague, MN.
Jim is an excellent businessmen to sell your home. He is an expert and really tries to meet your needs and do what is best for you. He is very personable and will push you to do your very best to get the most for your home.
We were trying to find a home on the lake with a limited budget. The first time we met Jim he told us that he would get us on the lake even with our budget. Jim kept his word and got us the house we wanted at a great price.
Sold a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $400K in Prior Lake, MN.
We were in the market for a townhome on Prior Lake --- and there is no one -- and I mean no one -- who knows Prior Lake lakeshore homes better than Jim Slater. Jim helped us through the entire process from finding the right home to being there with us at the closing. Jim's high integrity, skill & expertise with lakeshore properties, and tireless effort working for his clients puts him in a class of his own! I want to also add that the polish and attention to detail that Jim and his team put in when listing your home for sale --- is nothing short of extraordinary!
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Prior Lake, MN.
We worked with Jim to list our house and prepare it for the best possible showing. Jim assisted with furniture arrangement and decluttering suggestions that we will keep even if the house doesn't sell.
We have bought and sold 5 homes in our lifetime, and Jim's marketing approach far exceeds the marketing done by any other realtor. Aerial photos from a helicopter, first class (not just paper) brochures and international marketing along with the standard ground level outside photos and inside photos posted on the web are all part of Jim's approach. This is definitely not "list it and leave it" marketing.
For showings, Jim was always considerate of our ongoing lives and always called ahead to confirm that the house was available for showing rather than just assume it was available during the day.
