We were looking for investment property as out of state buyers and needed someone to provide us with recommendations for appreciation and rental income as well as be our eyes and ears to evaluate properties that often looked great but turned out to be duds. Jim exceeded our expectations for providing market information, visiting homes & sending Youtube videos, recommending good mortgage brokers, etc. Jim showed great patience with us as we looked for the right buy, he never pushed us or got anxious to make a buy, he lent a voice of reason and provided outstanding service before, during and after the purchase. We would definitely use Jim again and would recommend him to others (unless of course, it means that we will have to share his time with someone else...). Top notch man with integrity and totally in tune with what premium service means.

My husband and I purchased a home in Maricopa last year. We are from Canada and we were only able to spend a few days with Jim while in Arizona. He showed us the homes that we had selected from the internet and explained what our chances of getting the one we decided to put in an offer on. We then had to return to Canada and Jim advised us immediately when he knew that we were not successful with our offer. Jim knew the area where we wanted to purchase and the style of house as well. He called us with the news that he had found the exact model that we were looking for and guided us with the offer procedure and suggested prices. As it turned out we were again unsuccessful but Jim did not give up. He notified us when the third property of this model was coming on the market and he went to the house to take pictures for us. He also did a video and tried to keep my anxiety level down as we waited for the day that we were eligible to put in our offer. Well, the third time a charm for us and Jim advised us immediately that the house was ours. We flew to Arizona for the closing and Jim took very good care of us as we did not know exactly how things worked for a house sale in the US. Throughout the whole process, Jim was extremely knowledgeable, courteous, efficient and friendly. We were able to joke with him as well as use him as our advisor for everything we needed to know concerning our new home and all we would need for it. We could not have been more fortunate in choosing our agent and I would highly recommend his services to anyone. Thanks again Jim for a great job. We appreciated everything immensely. Arie and Angela

Jim was highly recommended to help me buy my first home. He made a detailed list of houses and condos that are not only in my price range but also what I would like in my first home. His knowledge in location and honesty in discussing "real estate" to me was very helpful. Jim was thorough and was dedicated to helping find a place that would serve me. Plus he took me to lunch! Jim is dedicated to his work and strives to meet the needs of his clients. I highly recommend him to help you find your home!
Jim knows his stuff! I have used him to both buy and sell a home, and I love that he keeps me informed throughout the whole process. He's easily accessible both via telephone and email, which is wonderful! I don't think he's ever even missed a telephone call from me. He gives you a good idea of what you can expect with each situation presented when buying or selling a home, and though it can sometimes be a roller coaster of emotion, he does an amazing job handling anything thrown his way. I will use him, for sure in the future, and I recommend him to anyone needing a realtor.

Jim came recommended by a friend and I am glad he did. Jim is effective in communication and is extremely dedicated to meeting client needs, all of which you would expect from a real estate professional. I would recommend him highly!
Robert Sacha, Buyer
Jim is freakin awesome. He helped me find a house in Tempe close to work and I've been loving it. What I like most about him is how down to Earth he is and also how realistic he is. He will walk into a house and immediately tell you all the concerns he has about it. He's there to help, not for some quick sale. Also to note, I'm one of the most pain in the butt people to deal with as I take forever to pick a house. Jim is super patient and makes sure you are 100% happy. Jimmie...you da man!
Jacob Blumer, Buyer
Jim helped us find the perfect house in Mesa within the price range I set. He then helped us sell our house in San Tan Valley. He lined up everything from the home inspection to signing paperwork. Jim is always willing to go the extra mile to get everything taken care of. Jim is AWESOME!
Cynthia Henry, Buyer and Seller
Jim will do what he has to for his clients. We were moving from NJ to AZ in three months and had to find a house to purchase within a certain distance from our business. We had to be in the house by March. He did all the running around and found what we were looking for. We never thought we'd make it, but thanks to Jim we've been here two years and love the house and neighborhood. Thanks, Jim!
Christina and Larry Decker, Buyer
Jim is great, very experienced and knows the local market very well; he always goes extra miles for the client to make sure they get all facts and information, to make the right decisions on purchasing, he helped me to get a property for my daughter in Gilbert, Az. Thanks, Jim -:)

I first came across Jim when I found my dream home which happened to be his listing on Zillow. Jim informed me that the house was already off the market. Sending my complete disappointment he informed me that there are plenty of other homes on the market and he gave me access to his MLS which he emailed me daily with homes that fit my very picky criteria. The move for me was especially difficult as I was relocating to AZ from San Diego for work and the entire search was done virtually online. Jim assured me that he has dealt with so many people in my exact situation and offered to videotape any home I'm interested in and personally check it out. Jim was in constant contact with me and I never felt as if I were alone in this process. Once I found another house that I felt I absolutely had to have I phoned Jim that evening. I asked him to clear his afternoon appts the following day to show me this house. Although he had a full day planned already, he informed me to come out and he would make it happen. He kept his word and we both walked into my new home at the same time. I was amazed at the cosmetic beauty of the house and was already sold on the deal, ready to offer higher than the asking price if that would secure the deal. Jim, on the other hand, went around the house, checking the lights, plumbing, foundation. He kept my best interests in mind as a buyer's representative even after I was already sold. He immediately phoned his wife and had her review the comps so we could structure a solid and reasonable offer. The next month I went through such a hard time due to the financing of my loan. Jim was my advocate through the entire process. I can honestly say that if Jim weren't my realtor I would have never been able to make this happen on my own. He assisted me in finding financing after I found out the loan officer I was dealing with was not able to structure my loan and did a phenomenal job at negotiating with the listing agent as my financing was taking longer than agreed to. He was present at all inspections and sent me the video recordings of each. Even though I couldn't physically be there in person I was 100% confident I was in good hands. When I finally got my keys and opened the door to the new home I was almost in disbelief that we made it happen, with all the obstacles, and all within 30 days. If it weren't for Jim I wouldn't be sitting here in my new home writing this review. After I moved, I noticed minor things here and there as my home was never lived in. I would Juliet email Jim and he had the builder come out and fix it right away. It's been almost two months since I've settled into my home and life in AZ and Jim is always a phone call or email away, even after the deal is done. I can't say enough about how much having the right realtor can make or break your deal. Jim not only made my deal happen but he did it with the utmost professionalism and truly took his duty as a realtor above and beyond my expectations. He is the best in the business, hands down.
Stacey Solano, Buyer
Jim is a top-notch agent! He is always ready and willing to show us homes and does his research on each and every property! He is easy to work with, not pushy, honest and trustworthy. He goes above and beyond to provide good service. I would highly recommend him!
Gary D, Buyer
I began my home search with Jim in mid 2010. He worked tirelessly for over 2 years, looking all over the valley for a home for me to retire in. He spent many hours, and put hundreds of miles on his car, showing us properties. I can't believe he stuck with us that long. I have nothing but high praise and gratitude for the hard work Jim put in. I would HIGHLY recommend Jim as an agent. He is the BEST!
Martin Bohinski, Buyer
Jim is an outstanding Realtor! His negotiating skills helped us get the home we wanted at a great price. He made himself available to us at a moments notice to look at houses and quickly responded to our questions. I refer all my family and friends to Jim. Your Content Goes Here
Jim was very knowledgeable about the market. He was very patient with all of my questions and helped me to understand the process of buying a house. He always answered my calls and/or returned my messages quickly. I will continue to use Jim for future homes and recommend him to all of my friends and associates.
Craig and Jessica, Buyer
As a first time home buyer, Jim expedited the process of purchasing our first home with great knowledge of the housing market in our area. Jim was very responsive when I had questions or wanted to look at a home. He helped us find the best company to secure a loan thru. We would highly recommend Jim for your next home purchase because he is a driven professional with an above and beyond attitude to fulfill his client's needs.
April Perkins, Buyer
Jim was outstanding to work with. Patiently supplied information over the course of several years before we made a trip out and purchased. Was insightful and helpful in finding a great fit for our needs. Great attitude, went above and beyond to finalize closing during our absence. Dave & Suzy

Jim and Brenda Overson have been wonderful to work with. We live in another state, are looking to buy a vacation, 2nd home in Arizona. I hate to admit it, but we have changed our minds more than once in regards to the area we'd like to be in and the type of property we're interested in. Jim and Brenda have never made us feel like we were a bother, or taking up too much of their time. They are always available to take our calls and answer one more question. They are truly interested in helping us find our "perfect" getaway. Thank you, Michael and Michelle Adams
