Jim Hoffman is a true professional and real estate expert! Responsiveness and knowledge of the Buffalo, NY area are unparalleled. Jim, helped us buy our home in Williamsville, NY and his process is honest, fair and ahead of the pack. If you don't care about schools, resale, taxes, construction, negotiations, neighbors, prices and radon then Jim is not your man. Do your kids a favor and hire Mr. Hoffman for your real estate needs as he is the best realtor I've ever dealt with and truly runs his business as if you're his only client. In a market where there are multiple offers and homes selling for OVER asking price you need Jim in your corner so that you don't lose your home! Good luck. Travis

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $300K in Parkside, Buffalo, NY.

Jim and I have worked together on two real estate deals in the past four years and my experiences with him were first class. Jim is a very caring professional who wants to find his client the best home and he is willing to invest the time necessary to achieve that. Jim always responded to my needs in a timely manner which is essential when dealing with a time sensitive process. Jim is very organized, thorough, and most importantly, a trust worthy person. I would highly recommend Jim Hoffman as a real estate agent to anyone. He's the best.

Sold a home in 2015 in Lancaster, Town of Lancaster, NY 14086.

What an excellent experience I had working with Jim Hoffman to sell my home! I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a committed and respectful real estate agent. Jim was always quick to give an assist when I did not understand a piece of the process. He always returned my phone calls and emails, and did so almost immediately. He was very respectful to me and to my property. I never felt pressured in any way to hurry up and buy something. Jim was patient and extremely knowledgeable and gave me great advice on the best way to present my home to buyers and what to look for in the homes that I was interested in purchasing.I had complete confidence in his abilities and appreciated the fact That when I wanted to see houses that I was interested in, Jim had me into those houses in a matter of one or two days. Again, I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who is looking for an agent. It was a very pleasant experience to work with someone who was kind and professional.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Grand Island, NY.

We used James M. Hoffman because of a friends recommendation. We listed our house in May and had a couple open houses in the beginning of our contract with some interest from buyers, but no offers. Towards the end of our contract we had more interest from buyers and finally got an offer that was acceptable to us. Jim guided us through the negotiation of offers and counter offers. Since we were selling a house on the water we all expected it to sell during the summer months when it showed the best and were disappointed that it didn't. We were surprised when an offer was presented in October and were able to close the deal in December.

Sold a home in 2014 in Willow Ridge Estates, Amherst, NY 14228.

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 in Bellevue, Cheektowaga, NY 14227.

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.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $125K 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.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $100K in Cheektowaga, NY.

I would highly recommend Jim and Chris Hoffman. Jim helped make buying a home stress free. Jim sent me multiple houses that met my criteria. Jim was available to show me multiple homes for sale on that list and do walkthroughs of each house I wanted to see. He even gave his opinion on each house and his recommendation. He even Jim took care of all the work involved in buying a house. He even recommended an attorney and home inspector, which helped out greatly. I knew nothing of buying a house and Jim explained everything in terms I could understand. It was an easy process because of Jim. He was available to call at any time of the day, if he could not take the call he was quick at getting back to you. I appreciate everything that Jim did for me in buying my new home!! I was not disappointed in choosing him as my real estate agent.
