Our mother decided it was time to downsize and sell her home of 40 years. James was amazing. He was very thoughtful and considerate of her during this difficult time, and always very professional. James took charge of the entire sales effort, from preparing the house for market through closing,  and led her carefully through the entire process. He worked very hard to make it as easy as possible for her. 


Response from James Ebert:

 Working with your family was an honor and privilege. It was exciting to watch buyers fall in love with your family home, with five offers in 2 weeks, as planned, some at full price, for all cash! This has allowed your family to have more time together, and focus on settling in the new neighborhood. Have a wonderful Holiday.

James came out to do my appraisal several weeks ago and he was amazing. Very professional and knowledgeable but he was also very caring and understanding with my unique situation that I have. He took his time and walked through my house, room by room as I pointed out the good and the bad and he  took lots of pictures. He provided me with a very detailed and descriptive report in the appraisal and I couldn't have been happier with his services. I have since had occasion to call him to ask him some more questions regarding my situation and he has always made himself available to me by phone, even after hours. I would definitely give him the highest recommendation.
