We are very pleased with the way in which Jim Migliore assisted us in our recent sell of property. His professional advice led us well through the entire process from listing to closing. He worked very quickly in getting our place listed, and he kept us well informed as to showings, feedback from showings all along the way. When an offer came, Jim was of great value in the negotiations with the buyers and their agent; and, therefore, we feel we received a fair price. Because of his expertise with closing arrangements, we felt very secure as he walked us through the process, making sure we understood everything, which led to a very smooth closing. If needed, we would definitely use his services again, and highly recommend Jim to anyone else.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Beaufort, NC.
Jim was very knowledgeable of our "unique" area of Beaufort, NC. He developed a price that was strong and competitive which help sell our house. Jim also found our new home, at the right price and which met a tight time-frame.
We would both recommend Jim to all our friends and anyone looking to buy or sell in our area.
James was very, very helpful and knowledgable about all the sites we wanted to look at. I live 3 hours away from Emerald Isle and he did so much of the leg work for us, especially after we found a place.
He inspected "our" condo for us on several occasions to be sure all services that were being done were complete. He met me on several occasions when my family and I were down there and made sure we had everything we needed to close. He answered every email and text within minutes of me sending. He contacted the law office, Homeowners Assoc, banks, insurance co., at every request we made.
He was exceptional as our realtor. I really appreciate all James did for us.

Jim provided outstanding service to us in marketing and selling our property. He went above and beyond what one might expect of a listing agent and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase or list a property in the area.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $100K in Morehead City, NC.
I can say without hesitation and specifics that Jim Migliore has negotiated on my behalf and has been successful. That to me is impressive. Not only am I impressed by his overall skill in his profession in finding out and passing on relevant and needed information, but he went all out to help me purchase my house. He stuck with me through it all like a valued family member. He never tired of showing me new places or going back and forth over the same ones if I wanted to take another look. He laid out my options clearly, which I found not only useful but helpful.
He responded to all my communications immediately, leaving me to feel like he has no other clients. That is a very good professional characteristic and I am proud and very happy that I found Jim in my time of needing a good broker.
I strongly recommend that anyone seeking to purchase a house, contact Jim if he is within the environs of preference. He is absolutely good at what he does: helping folks find good homes in whatever affordability level. Kudos to Jim.
Jim Migliore has been very professional with us throughout our real estate search and really looks out of the interests of his clients. He used current technology (facetime) to save us trips to Beaufort when looking at new real estate options. Very willing to look at properties without us, ahead of time, to give us an idea if we would like it, since we were not local. Very knowledgable in real estate and Beaufort area in general.
The home we own in Peletier,N.C. has been listed with Jim Migliore for only a short time now and we have had more showings in the past couple of weeks than we had all last year with another local realtor. Needless to say, we are truly happy with the way he has been handling the listing of our home. Mr. Migliore has assisted us in making some minor changes to give our home curb appeal. It is obvious that he has vision, is aware of what buyers are looking for and is quite a professional in his field. He conducts himself with utmost confidence and conviction. Two qualities we feel help the Seller have complete trust in him. Believe me, his reputation preceeds him. Jim has worked very closely with us and any suggestions he has made has always been with our best interest at heart! He kindly and patiently considers all our needs whether they be physical or emotional. He makes himself readily available and promptly responds to any questions/concerns we have. We truly have never met such a dedicated person to his field and we venture to say we never will. Thank you Jim. Sincerely, Diana Born and Judy Esposito
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $300K in Beaufort, NC.
The day has come... I've closed on my property and Mr. Migliore has done more than could ever be expected to make the transition from out of state.
Local knowledge...... He knows a lot of great people to help with repairs or upgrages to the property that you have pourchased. Although I closed in late October, and was not able to move for two months, he has eagerly coordinated home up grades for me and went so far as to front the money in order to expedite the services so that they would be complete before I arrived. He arranged a fence installation, a painter that has redone the second floor aand back porch, a hot tub installion, a outside porch repair guy, a lawn maintenancew company and maintained contact to ensure that I feel good about my move. He even has gone to the house on numerous occasions to make sure that the upgrages have been done to his specs before I send him a final payment.
Process expertise.... having never lived in North Carolina, I was impressed with his knowledge of the real estate laws. They are different from where I live and I would have been at a complete loss without his input.
Responsiveness.....If you text him, email him or call him with any question, he will respond within 12 hours or less. He is positive, and cares greatly about his community and family. I've never heard him say anything unfavorable about a thing. To me that is a huge plus since I am dealing with a local real estate agent while trying to sell my current home and it has been drama, drama, drama. I appreciate his honest, straight-forward approach and his ability to solve "problems" as they arise.
Negotiation skil;ls.... I can't say enough. He helped me purchase a home that cost me much lower than the listed price. I'm happy and the sellers are happy. They got to move at the right time and I locked in a very good interest rate.
All in all, you should consider this agent when seeking real estate in North Carolina. This is not a part time job to him; it is his profession and he works hard to please the customer. That is a rare treat to find in the hustle of a busy world.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $300K in Beaufort, NC.
I live in Texas and am re-locating to Norh Carolina when I am able to retire. Mr. Migliore made the transition painless. First, he listened to my what, needs, and desires, then he created a list of homes that met my criteria. After review on line and on site visits by Jim prior to my arrival, I was able to limit my on site search to five homes.He even sent me a welcome package so I could plan somke fun into my limited time that I had in Beaufort.
We started the day I arrived in Beaufort and had an offer in within 6 hours. This guy is prompt, professional, eager to please, courteous, willing to work around your time there, and must of all he is very honest. My offer was accepted the second day and I'm re-locating ASAP. I couldn't be happier.
When we decided to list our home , we interviewed local Realtors. It became clear that Jim was the one we would go with because right from the start he told us that he didn't come to list our home, he came to sell it.
The other presentations were rather run of the mill, a few comparables and a mediocre attitude regarding pricing. We felt that the others were only going to rely on the MLS listing to market our home. We felt they had a "wait and see" attitude, content to make some money off the listing if that be the case. We felt our home would become just another home, nothing special, just have their sign on our lawn.
We went with Jim because he was completely different He did comprehensive research and had a definite plan on how he was going to market our home. He presented the pricing based on evidence from our community. He hired a professional photographer to take the pictures and create the virtual tour. He is very aware of the market and his building background offers him a perspective that other Realtors lack. This background aids him in presenting our home because of the structural differences that makes our home unique. Other Realtors told us, those details weren't really important. With Jim, everything is important. He monitors our home everyday. He communicates with us personally not relying of just e-mails.
One facet of his marketing that appealed to us is that he goes beyond our local area and reaches larger cities.He is willing to invest in the marketing of our home to make sure it gets the most exposure. We've had had a lot of activity for the six weeks we have been on the market. We had never heard of United Country and wondered if we should go with an unfamiliar name but we are so happy that we did. There is a big difference and it is clearly seen once you first meet Jim. He is professional, honest and totally committed to selling our home. Very highly recommend Jim!
