I have so many positive things to say that I’m struggling to squeeze it all in a review! James Strum not only listed and sold our previous home, but simultaneously found and handled the purchase of our new home.
I have 3 key themes to share:
(1) James is exceptional at his job. James is 5 stars on all of the above criteria. His local knowledge is immense, is process understanding is masterful, he is unbelievably responsive at all hours, and negotiated for us very well on all counts. He has great local connections for everything you need in the home buying and selling process and understands all of the intricate inner workings of real estate.
(2) James is creative, pragmatic, and persistent in getting the job done. He was extremely pragmatic in situations of what seemed like insurmountable obstacles that came up along the way during our simultaneous home sale and purchase. I am still amazed that it all worked out and I hold James personally responsible for the success of both deals. Without James, the deal on all fronts would have likely fallen apart. He bridged the gap not only for us as his clients, but also really helped inform and support all parties involved. To say that he went above and beyond is a major understatement.
(3) James is truly a one-stop shop. He provided great advice to us on all fronts – including how to get our house ready, what to negotiate, how to follow the whole process from beginning to end, and reassurance and real advice when things were tricky. No detail fell through the cracks. I could sleep better at night when things were complicated with the deal knowing that James had our back.
Don’t waste your time with any other realtors. There are a lot out there who try to sell themselves as knowing the game. James Strum should be your first call. He will sell your house and/or get you the house that you want – Call him!
