James was SO helpful with buying my first home. I had no idea where to even start, so I looked for realtors online and found James' positive reviews and gave him a call. He met me that same day and helped me find the perfect house! He came to the inspections and helped point out issues with the home that I never would have known to look for and spent time answering all of my questions prior to closing. I could not have asked for a better realtor! If you are thinking about buying a home or don't know where to start, give him a call!
We got referred by a friend who used James as her realtor. She had wonderful things to say about him & she was spot on! James would always respond within 24hrs. He is very knowledgeable & knows his stuff! He is very respectful. James was with us from start to finish. What I liked most about James was that he didn't try and sell us a house, he ensured that we got the right house at the right price ! Trust you're in good hands with James as your realtor.
For my family, James helped me achieve the impossible. I had talked to countless agents that talked a lot of hype about helping with credit challenges but ultimately couldn't deliver. Then I met James. He was such a genuine nice guy and he had complete confidence that he could get it done, so I gave him a chance before signing a lease. 3 1/2 months later I closed on my dream home! James and his team go above and beyond! They keep communication open and James works hard to make sure you find the perfect home for your family. I am so thankful for James and his willingness to go the extra mile!
We contacted James a couple of months prior to putting our home on the market. He gave us good advice on what we needed to do to get ready to sell. A couple of months later, James listed our home the weekend before Christmas. Our home sold in 2 days for $11,000 over asking price. He was always helpful and responsive and great to work with. Thanks James!!
We found James on Yelp based on his reviews. We first tried an agent from Keller Williams that was very nice in person but had all kinds of issues so we had to move.
James is an institution in Georgetown, lots of people know him since he is from here. A mother in our daughter´s dance class used him, we´ve met others that know him. Which means a lot because he has both a good reputation to protect and others will act proper to protect their reputation.
We originally thought of buying a preexisting home but switched to a semi-custom new build. At the time, we wondered if a RE was really needed for a new build since the price is ¨fixed.¨ But after going through the experience, that´s not the way to look at it.
The builder´s agent works for the builder and against you if interests don´t align. While the base home price is fixed, it's the other issues that make a huge difference.
Initial purchase. One builder had a lower base price but lower base features, which required upgrading, increasing the final price, which James helped us compare. Then, James discussed which add ons add value to the home $ and which are a loss.
Build process. James was there to represent us in a process that did not go smooth. The builder had several excuses, such as they had verbally promised something but it wasn´t in writing. Which James took care of. Or delays. Without James we wouldn´t have known how far to push.
Final close. The builder had left several items not to our liking. James was helpful in pushing back to help us get what we needed. And if we incurred extra costs due to the builder´s failure, which at one point seemed possible, he would have gotten it fixed.
While it costs nothing to have a RE for a new build, I would have paid out of pocket for James, it was completely worth it. Highly recommend him.
