Team reviews

Thanks to Jim, our home sold for the highest price of recent sales in the neighborhood, within 48 hours of listing, for over our asking price. After the quick sale Jim proved to be exceptionally patient as we viewed dozens of houses over the course of months before finding our home. In all of our interactions, Jim was professional, knowledgable, and generally made us feel comfortable through all of these major decisions. Great realtor!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $225K in Grayslake, IL.

Jim was excellent. I had already moved to a different state, and I had to sell my home remotely. Jim handled everything. He was able to do all of my documentation remotely, he arranged for all of the details at the house before showings. He even checked on the house at least once a week to make sure everything was running properly and secure. On a couple of occasions I had to ask him to run to the house to check a few things for me. Jim and his team took care of all of my requests and were happy to do so. Jim was able to find us a buyer, and we were very happy with the final sales price. I couldn't be happier with Jim and his team.  More Less
