Testimonials

I met James through an open house and ended up working with him when the realtor I had was not working out. James was a breath of fresh air. He held 3 open houses and was ALWAYS at showings, NO LOCK BOX. I had an offer in 3 weeks, which fell through at no fault to anyone. He quickly had my place back on the market within a week then I had dueling offers and sold above asking. Could not have been happier. I would highly recommend James. He provided the attention required to sell my place quickly and at a fair price.

Heather - Uptown

He set up the magic bidding war of the buyers and got it sold before the sign went up! It was like a sellers dream - stories you heard but never though could happen to you. He advised me to list it for more than I had wanted then got us more than that!

This is a brilliant business man. He is also disarmingly charming and pleasant to deal with.

You want this guy to sell or buy!

George Linnik - Logan Square

As a first time home buyer, James was a godsend. He was patient and encouraging throughout the entire process. As first-time buyers, James's expertise provided us an excellent lens to leverage when assessing a potential property.

Even after months of searching for the perfect home, James was positive and enthusiastic. We would highly recommend James to anyone!
