Sold a home in 2014.

James M. Hoffman, Hunt Real Estate, ERA --- Monday, January 19, 201.

My wife and I had the occasion to engage the services of James M. Hoffman, of Hunt Real Estate ERA, in 2014 to sell our home located at 70 Little Robin Road, Amherst, New York 14228. At the initial meeting, Jim toured the home/property in great detail and provided numerous suggestions for us to make changes/modifications so as to present the home in the most favorable light. It was immediately evident that Jim’s 29+ years of real estate experience would be critical to our ability to successfully market the home. Shortly thereafter, Jim took highly professional pictures of the home and property. The pictures were exceptional and showcased the home’s features in such a manner as to highlight the uniqueness of the home. The pictures were entered into the MLS Service and on various websites so as to garner the most possible exposure to potential buyers. The marketing of our home quickly, via numerous venues, in such a professionally manner was extremely impressive. This experience provided us with the confidence that our home was being marketed in an expeditious manner with maximum market exposure.

One of the best assets supplied by James M. Hoffman of Hunt Real Estate ERA is the continuous guidance and consultation services offered. Jim kept us constantly apprised of real estate developments in the Western New York catchment area. This allowed us to immediately respond to any/all changing market conditions. Furthermore, Jim (and Chris) were always available to us by either telephone or e-mail whenever we had a question. Their turn-around time to answer inquiries was instantaneous. Jim’s boundless energy coupled with his keen knowledge of the local real estate market was undoubtedly the reason for a successful home sale outcome in an extremely timely manner. Additionally, Jim Hoffman provides a full-service real estate operation – he guided us in locating an experienced law firm to assist with the home closing and followed the process through to ultimate home closing.

Given our experience with Jim Hoffman, I would unconditionally recommend the use of him/his firm for all real estate needs. I suspect that his knowledge and understanding of the Western New York real estate market is unequaled among his contemporaries. Jim’s thoroughness, attention to detail coupled with his extensive real estate experience will, in my opinion, always result in a favorable housing experience. While we utilized his services to sell a home, I am sure he provides the same quality service to potential buyers as well. In summation, hiring James Hoffman of Hunt ERA will always result in a most favorable housing experience.

Sold a home in 2014.

Jim is effective in every way. He has a gentle way of connecting with his customers helping to make them feel that he is there for them as an agent as well as a friend. He takes the time to listen to personal problems related to the sale or buying of a property. He shares a little of his own circumstances which helps to connect us as well. I felt he genuinely wanted to work for me and my sale. I was not simply another of his many clients. At every step Jim realized the need to communicate the goings on of the process. He had suggestions that helped make things go smoothly. And his needs were put second to my needs, at times going over something he had already explained but that I had not understood. He and his wife, Chris, work as a team each having the perfect balance in getting things done efficiently, effectively and with the kind of care you would expect from a family member. I would highly recommend this team to help you buy or sell. I have been extremely happy.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in West Seneca, NY.

My husband and I recently purchased our first home. Jim and Chris Hoffman came highly recommended. I can say without a doubt that we are so happy that we followed that recommendation.

Jim and Chris were with us every step of the way. Their expertise, patience and guidance were just what we needed during this process. While viewing homes, Jim's knowledge was a most valuable resource. He kept us focused on what we should be looking at, so as not to get caught up in the cosmetics and at last we finally found what we were looking for.

If I am ever in the market for selling, purchasing or know of anyone that is looking to sell or purchase, Jim and Chris Hoffman will be without a doubt who we will recommend. Their genuine warmth and kindress helped us to find the home we wanted.
