‟Great and attentive agents. Always going above and beyond for their customers. Our realtor was a knot he above the rest. We knew exactly what we wanted and didn't waste any time finding us the perfect house. Can't thank them enough.”

‟I reviewed James back in 2016 when he was with another agency (I actually joined Yelp just to write that review); it is worth repeating the review now that James has started his own company. Here is what we said: James Strum found our dream home. We contacted James after several months of researching the Richmond market online and presented him with an impossible, multi-page list of requirements. When he told us at our first meeting that he had found our dream home, we looked at one another dubiously - but he was right! Furthermore, while the house was out of our price range, new to the market, and experiencing a great deal of interest, he was somehow able to negotiate our dream price as well. The house is still our dream home nearly two years later, and we remain grateful to James. We also appreciated the knowledge James was able to impart along the way. For example, he pointed out the "pros and cons" of various features in every home - knowledge that extended beyond that of a layperson. Finally, he was always available and went "above and beyond" in countless ways. We recommend James highly to anyone.” Read More ▾

‟Jamie Strum, Cole Atkins and the entire Strum team are the best in the business. My husband and I met Cole when we found the home of our dreams in April of 2019 and the Strum Group helped us purchase this home in May. Not only did they know the area extremely well but they referred us to the best closing attorney, inspector and an entire team of well qualified folks who helped us along the way. My husband and I had not bought a home for over 20 years so needless to say we had lots of questions throughout the process. Jaime and Cole were extremely patient, knowledgeable, accommodating, thorough and, in my opinion, they are the master negotiators! They made us feel like we were their only clients and that helps...especially when you haven't done this in 20 years! To this day, months later, we still keep in touch with Jaime and Cole and I know for a fact they would do anything for us (and we would do anything for them!). Simply put, the Strum Group is the best of the best.” Read More ▾

‟After interviewing several agents, we chose James without reservation. His responsiveness and professionalism surpassed his peers. During our first meeting, James' knowledge of the area and ove rall world of real estate was immediately apparent. He provided practical, yet honest feedback about the process, our home, and the market conditions. James never pressured us and always explained each option in full detail. James worked with us to develop a step by step plan that would meet our timeline while still keeping our monetary goals at the forefront. James has a welcoming demeanor that put our children at ease. Our toddler even asked for Mr. James to come back to see her. However, James is easily able to transition from an agreeable disposition to a businessman who will represent your interests to the fullest extent. He negotiated a top price for our home when compared to market conditions. He was also able to keep the requests from the other side extremely reasonable/necessary. James kept us informed of feedback from showings immediately and advised us on any appropriate changes. He was reachable by various means and responded immediately. James made our first selling experience worry free and successful. We recommend James Strum without reservation.” Read More ▾

‟James Strum was beyond excellent to work with! I would highly recommend him to anybody looking for a Realtor who really gets involved with his clients and finds them exactly what they are looki ng for! This was my first home purchase and he was extremely responsive to all of my 10 million questions at all hours of the day and night, he has extensive knowledge of the area, and he fought extremely hard for six months to get my short sale to closing when most Realtors would have thrown in the towel. he dealt with multiple lien holders and he really went above and beyond his job description to get me what I wanted. He really educates you on the entire home buying process and in the end makes you feel a lot more comfortable with it all. Not only did I find the best Realtor, but I gained a great friend in the process! There is a reason he is #1 with Long and Foster for 2012 and 2013! Thanks James!” Read More ▾

‟Jamie leaves it all on the table when it comes to knowledge, service, and relationships. Our situation was what we thought to be difficult, but he didn't bat an eye. We already knew that buying a home woudl be stressful. Jamie always gave us the feeling like we didn't have a thing to worry about.. because we didn't. He took care of everything. He made sure we knew exactly what we needed to do every step of the way. He didn't stop until he found exactly what we wanted and then he made it happen. He took care of us like family and is focused on building relationships that last a lifetime. Do not even think about contacting anyone else. He is the one! ” Read More ▾

‟Our experience with Jamie was incredible! We were first time home buyers who had no idea what we were getting into. He was so helpful with answering all of our questions and always made himself available. His relationship with the lender made our loan process easy. He was so open and honest about each house we looked at - what he knew to be good or bad. Jamie never hesitated to look at any house we wanted to and always made time. In fact, the day the house we bought went on the market, he went above and beyond to get us in to look at it that same day, we made an offer that night and it was accepted the next day! We couldn't have asked for an more knowledgeable realtor. The horror stories you hear about home buying can be intimidating, but Jamie made it an effortless experience! We refer him every chance we get, knowing that he's going to treat every person he works with like family! ” Read More ▾

Seller • Richmond, VA
‟Jamie did a great job for me by being very responsive and offering suggestions to improve the chance of selling my house while still being realistic. He had a wealth of information to show me regarding other homes that I was competing against. The info was very helpful in understanding where I stood in the market place. This is a tough real estate market and I always knew he was working hard in my best interest. Heartily recommend him.” Read More ▾
