As an investor I have worked with many realtors over the years. I have never found a more professional agent than Jim and charlet. Their knowledge of the area that I was looking in was amazing, they knew the market dynamics both rental and sales and were able to help guide me to true solid investments. Anytime you have an opportunity to work with Jim in charlet I'm sure you'll be rewarded with great opportunities.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $675K in Geneva, FL.
We first contacted Jim & Charlet about a home they had listed on the St. Johns River, a rural area we were unfamiliar with. They spent several hours, on a Saturday, showing us that home and several others in the area, answering our multitude of questions, telling us about the Geneva area, including very knowledgeable detail about water levels and flood history which was of great interest to us. Having grown up in the area they were very knowledgeable about its history and the rural lifestyle. They quickly found the perfect home for us and then hung in there with us for a year, after the sellers changed their minds, always keeping us up to date on the status, staying on top of it, and getting us in the door first once the sellers decided they were ready, before they ever re-listed it. Jim & Charlet expertly guided us through the process and all aspects of purchasing our new home. From making an offer, to negotiating price, and through the entire closing process, they were there every step of the way giving professional guidance and advice where needed and always responding in an efficient and timely manner. Even helping us navigate a few post-closing issues while they were on vacation. We highly recommend Jim & Charlet and plan to use them when it comes time to sell the home we have just moved out of.
Bought a Single Family home in 2008 in Geneva, FL.
My wife and I had been looking for a lot to build our new home on in Geneva for over a year. After contacting Seminole Woods Realty they quickly found the perfect lot within our budget. During the offer/ counter offer phase they exhibited their knowledge about the local values and trends while guiding us to a successful closing. During that time we really felt that we were being professionally represented and with our best interests in mind.
I would not hesitate to recommend Seminole Woods Realty to anyone in the future.
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $500K in Geneva, FL.
Jim and Charlet Alford were the listing agents on the house that we purchased in 2011. With their help the closing went very smoothly. They also were very responsive and pleasant responding to several post closing inquiries we made to them.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Geneva, FL.
Jim and Charlet helped us look for a house for 7 or 8 months, before our third offer on a home was finally accepted and we were able to close on it. They showed us all around the Geneva area (on weekends nonetheless) and was able to help us understand what we were getting into with country living. They are the local experts for this area and know what to look out for. Charlet was great with our kids and getting us what we needed. Jim was very technically knowledgeable about the properties and homes. Together they were a good team and we enjoyed very much working with them.
Bought a Single Family home in 1991 for approximately $75K in Oviedo, FL.
We had a great experience with Jim when we bought our house. He's very easy to chat with and clearly knows his profession. Jim and Charlet are Florida natives and know the best area for the client per their needs. They are both very professional and go out of their way to accommodate any requests. We will definitely use Jim and Charlet in the future when it comes time to sell our house.

Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2010 in Geneva, FL.
Jim and Charlet helped us list our house during the hardest part of the recession. They have great experience and knowledge of the industry. They provided all of the service we needed and were responsive to our questions and concerns. I would recommend them to anyone in our area and would not hesitate to choose them again.
