What do clients have to say about you?

"James did a fantastic job as our broker. His marketing plan of our property was excellent and we had multiple offers after our first open house, and even more after the second. Though our listing price was fair, we ended up getting several offers above the asking price which was a great surprise! James also helped us with a very quick closing, and had a great team to help with all the aspects of closing the deal. At the time, I was living pretty far away from the property and he took care of everything so I didn't have to travel for any aspect of the closing. I really appreciate the care James took with us to ensure we understood all of the offers we were getting as well as the pros and cons of each. It's rare to work with someone who demonstrates integrity in all his business dealings. I would highly recommend James to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."
