"Jim Kelly was the best Realtor that we could have had in a very challenging house sale involving the estate of our parents. He was thorough, diplomatic, persistent when necessary, best demeanor, highly knowledgeable, great follow up on every detail right to the very end: a successful sale to happy buyers and grateful sellers: my sister and I.
"Jim worked with us tirelessly for 2 years to find a home that was perfect for our growing family. We were probably not his easiest clients, but he stuck with us through our search through several towns. He was always available to show us a home or answer our questions. Most importantly he is incredibly experienced in real estate and this made him an outstanding negotiator for finalizing a contract. Jim is also a very honest and friendly person with a great sense of humor, which is an added bonus when you have a lot of homes to see."
"Jim worked with me for 9 months until we found the perfect home for me! He was always professional and knowledgeable. I enjoyed working with him and everyone he put me in touch with, such as a mortgage broker and real-estate attorney. Jim has a wonderful network of individuals who are just as knowledgeable and trustworthy as he is. Over the 9 months we worked together, he met several of my friends and family members who came to look at houses with us, and they were all just as impressed with Jim's expertise as I was. They all said the same thing, which was that they've never had a Realtor as great as Jim and they'll definitely be contacting him the next time they need one! I will be too!."
"My sister and I listed this home for sale when our father fell ill and could not return there to live. Jim was my father's choice for a realtor due to a remarkable relationship they had developed. During the interval from listing to the sale, our father died. <br /> <br />My sister and I both live out of state and could not be on site to take care of most of the house clean out or preparation for sale. Jim handled all the details. The home had some maintenance deficiencies and was sold 'as is'. Jim found the right buyers and baby stepped all of us through the sale process. He was very supportive and compassionate, while looking after our financial interests. I would retain him again in a minute. He is a classy guy and puts in the time."
"We love working with Jim. He thinks about us and our family first. He is very thorough in his property assessment and digs into the local market to understand how best to position. Jim is very trustworthy and is a good blend of friendly (personality) and firm (negotiation). What doesn't show up on the ratings chart is his resourcefulness (which is as strong as his responsiveness). Jim is very well connected and can pull together cost effective and high quality contractors, lawyers, accountants, lenders, etc. If you're looking for a high volume churn and burn agent, Jim is not your guy. He works with a select number of clients which has given us a comfort level that he is spending quality time on our listing."
