We used James to buy our house when we moved to Richmond three years ago based on a reference from a friend, and recently chose to use his firm to sell our house when we moved from Richmond based on the original experience. I am a very analytic person, and was extremely impressed by the quality and depth of James research regarding the market for our property. He even suggested we go above the price that I originally discussed with him, which shows he had our best interest in mind and was not just interested in making an easier sell. Thanks to James, we got several thousand dollars above the original asking price that I was envisioning. I would highly recommend James and his firm to anyone looking to buy or sell a house in Richmond, as his knowledge of the Richmond market, quantitative nature, and work ethic (the guy was sending me emails after I went to bed and before I got up) make him the ideal realtor.
