Ratings & Reviews

Jim and his team more than fulfilled our expectations: professional, personable, considerate, competent, and made every effort to meet our needs as sellers AND buyers. We sold at the highest price in our neighbor-hood since the economic crisis and for considerably more than other realtors thought we could get!! I highly recommend Jim Starwalt and his terrific team.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $200K in Grayslake, IL.

Jim, our neighbor, was friendly, honest and helpful while we went through the process of selling our house. Jim would be recommended by us to our friends if such a need would occur.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $125K in Zion, IL.

Jim listed the house and it sold in less than 3 months. He was able to negotiate the price I wanted in a market where the average selling time is 6 months. The price I got for the house was also above the average price for the area.
