What Happy Philadelphia PA Homeowners say about Us!
“I had the pleasure of working with James Harner as my Montgomery County Realtor through my Royersford Homes purchase. Through a long and trying process of short sale negotiation with the bank, I got to see how persistence and dedication pays off. I can't say enough about James Harner as a Montgomery County Realtor; he really pushed and drove to the very end. I couldn’t be more happy with choosing to purchase my Royersford Homes with James Harner as my Realtor. He saved me thousands of dollars and charged no conveyance fees on top of that. He has a client for life, and I will gladly refer him to all my friends and neighbors.” Joel Nagle<
Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity “Although I can only check 3 attributes from the list of 7 provided to describe James, I would have checked them all! James worked tirelessly with my husband and me to find the right priced property for us, one that would realize my lifelong dream: having my horses in my 'backyard'!! James also was instrumental in assisting my sister and me in the sale of our mother's property. We had listed it with another realtor, prior to my meeting James; it had been listed for a year!!. The other realtor bungled it so badly, we actually wound up in court with the supposed buyer. I happily turned the listing over to James and we closed on the sale in 2 months! I cannot say enough about James and his tireless work ethic and integrity!! Thanks to James, I have my dream property at a price I could afford and a good friend to boot.”
Janyse Madsen, Blue Bell PA
