This was my second time, having Jim Armstrong as my realtor. He really bent over backwards for us when it came to selling our home. What other realtor would actually help you paint just to make it more appealing to buyers not many, but he certainly did. I would absolutely go back to him if I ever thought about selling and would recommend him to my friends and family. Down to earth, genuine nice guy that just want to help you make your dreams come true.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Armstrong Field, particularly regarding Jim Armstrong.
We were initially introduced to Jim in 2008 when we purchased our first home in Salem. His knowledge base is second to none and he is both unassuming and extremely thorough and competent -- a rare combination. Needless to say, we successfully closed on the home and couldn't have been happier. My mother-in-law and brother-in-law also subsequently used Jim for their own homes, all seamless transactions.
But most recently, Jim outdid himself. We were selling our Salem home and purchasing another home in a nearby town. We were dealt some tough cards -- an "under appraisal" on the home we were purchasing as well as the need for a quick closing on our Salem house to appease the buyers. Jim went to town and got it done for us. Jim aggressively negotiated on our behalf with the seller and eventually all left the table very happy and ready to move. There were many moving parts, and the sale of both homes almost fell through but in the end, Jim made them work.
Many realtors drive around in $90K cars, look flashy and "talk the talk" which I often find both intimidating and off-putting. I'd rather a realtor be a normal person. Jim is that guy. He's a regular guy who knows EVERYTHING about homes...new and old. He's not "in your face" and knows what you want on both the buying and selling side of the transaction.
In short, if you're looking for a home in the north shore of MA, you'd be a fool not to use Jim. He's amazing and we couldn't be happier.

I first met Jim when he was the seller's agent on a house in Salem we were purchasing. He was so honest, kind, and easy to talk to that my husband and I swore that if we ever sold our we would list it with him. Well, 3 years later we did list our house and asked Jim to be our listing agent. (We also also asked us to be our buyer's agent when we bought a new, bigger house soon after)
Jim has a vast amount of knowledge. Not only about the house buying/selling process but also about the the North Shore in general, neighborhoods, mortgages, home repair etc. We spent a lot of time with Jim in the 6 months it took to sell our house and we couldn't recommend him more highly. What I love about him is that although he knows a lot (definitely more than we do!), he isn't pushy. For example, when he suggested we lower the price on our house he never pressured us to do so. He simply gave us the advice and moved on. If you're buying a home in the North Shore, you have to go with Jim Armstrong. Jim IS the North Shore!
