    We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Lamb Corners, OH 43016

    I emailed him regarding a rental On two ocassions. It took weeks to respond to emails and was rude when responded. I would not use him or recommend him to any of my friends.

    As a residential sales and leasing expert (Re/Max Hall of Fame Inductee) I work very hard to meet the needs of my clients. As a basic matter of safety, as a father and husband, when a RENTAL prospect declines to provide necessary background information prior to viewing a property, I must unfortunately decline the appointment. In other cases, in representing property owners, I must unfortunately decline tenant prospects because they fail to pass our rigorous background checks. I know that these situations can be very frustrating and upsetting, especially to irrational persons. I am sorry I could not acquiesce to your demands, however, my CLIENTS are very pleased with my expertise and service.

    We connected, but it did not work out.

    I am a military veteran who recently relocated to Ohio (my home state) and have been actively looking for a rental home for my family and I. Several of the properties in which I was interested were being managed by Jim Weygandt. My wife and I have contacted Jim many times about several properties. However, he only responded once and that conversation entailed him telling me about how qualified he was as opposed to educating me about the property for which I was calling. Furthermore, my wife and I happened to come across a property that seemed to be holding an open house. Coincidentally, Mr. Weygandt was actually showing the home to a couple. I reluctantly asked if I may do a quick walk thru as not to disturb the showing. Mr. Weygandt's first remark was "Take off your shoes." His demeanor and facial expressions (not to mention the jean shorts, t-shirt, and ball cap he was wearing) were unprofessional and unwelcoming. In the many years I have used the services of a real estate professional (in numerous states), Mr. Jim Weygandt has been the least professional of all. However, because he speaks Japanese (as he is quick to tell you). . . apparently, this is all that matters.

    We were moving here from out of state. Relocating our entire family. We contacted Jim due to the fact that he was all over as far as representing several potential properties we would be interested in. He never returns calls. He was very hard to get in touch with and would not even try to recommend someone else that maybe could help. Definitely would not recommend him.

    Found a tenant for a Single Family home in Lewis Center, OH.

    Very knowledgeable of the current market. This guy just gets the job done, isn't that the most important thing? He showed my place to 1 person and closed the deal. He does his due diligence on who would like what kind of place before scheduling the viewing. Great guy to work with, I highly recommend Jim.

    We connected, but it did not work out.

    Took several initial phone calls to even receive response regarding property. Would not retun phone calls or emails after application was submitted and never returned application fee. Never received any sort of acknowledgment of receipt of application or status of application acceptance. Several follow up calls/emails from me were ignored. Property was rented to another tenant with no communication to me after application was submitted.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Dublin, OH.

    We have been working with Jim for over a year to find the right house and just recently closed on its purchase. After we closed on the house, Jim provided expert advice on upgrades that would enhance the value of the property and even personally helped us with a couple of minor problems that the home inspector missed.

    We have been very impressed with his knowledge of the local real estate market and would not hesitate to recommend him to our friends and family.

    Helped me rent a home.

    Jim worked closely with us to explore options and discover our personal preferences and priorities, and then researched to find a great home for rent. We are currently in the process of moving in to a beautiful home that suits our needs!

    Showed home in 2012 in Summit View Woods, Shawnee Hills, OH 43065.

    Mr. Weygandt was the epitome of professionalism when I engaged his services to find a home in Columbus, OH. I was relocating for a job and was not familiar with the area. Jim took the time to meet me at the airport and even showed me the way to my employer's location. He spent a great deal of time meeting with me, and my wife, on multiple occasions to show us new housing options in various areas of Columbus, even as we refined what we were looking for. He was always punctual and in touch by phone and email. Whenever we left a voicemail, Jim was quick to return our calls and always very polite. My wife was also very impressed with his knowledge of the local market. What really made Jim Weygandt stand out versus other agents we've dealt with in the past was his attention to detail and honesty. One home had a ceiling/roof defect that we did not notice. He pointed it out, instead of just remaining silent since we didn't ask about it. It resulted in a longer home search, but he did the right thing and we highly recommend him to anyone looking for a home in the Columbus area. He also has language skills that my foreign wife appreciated. In the end, my firm changed their plans and relocated me elsewhere, so I rented in Columbus for the short time I worked there...after all that work without a sale, Jim still helped me find a place to rent for the short-term, knowing there wouldn't even be a commission...I bought him a nice dinner in appreciation. I still feel bad that my work assignment changed but want others to know how much he did for us, over and above the norm.

    I am writing this to inform you about one of the worst customer service experience I ever had today with one of Remax sales person Jim Wagandt, Columbus, Ohio.

    We had an appointment with Jim at 12 Noon. After two phone calls and 3 text messages he shows up 1hour and 10 minutes later. No apologies. No professionalism. Comes to meet us at the property in jeans and seems like he just got out of bed. He was supposed to line up few more properties, which obviously he didn’t! On top of all this he started cursing us for wasting his time!!!!!

    We regret to tell you that this is not what we expected from REMAX. He is a total disgrace to Real Estate Sales Industry and specifically to REMAX. We came only due to your National name and this is not what I expected from the organization.

    Found a tenant for a home.

    We worked with Jim and had a fantastic experience. He was incredibly responsive, answering calls and e-mails any day, any time. He has great knowledge of the Columbus/Dublin area and helped us narrow down our search with our need. He also help to find the right tenant for our investment property, you will get professional help via Jim for your Real Estate need. I highly recommend Jim!
