When the opportunity to move to Raleigh was presented to our family, it was greeted with a lot of apprehension. We decided to grab the opportunity and plunge into a city of which we knew nothing. Our first goal was to find a home for our family. This meant we needed a realtor. Of course, not being from the area we knew of none. This was when Jim, a stranger to us, came into our unsettled life. He was recommended by a family member. First and foremost, Jim was knowledgeable of the area. He guided us through all parts of Raleigh. He walked through many , many homes. Note, I was not an easy client to satisfy. I desired a good neighborhood, well-built home and most importantly a great school system for my daughter. Jim was always there to give me the pros and the cons and always backed it up with some form of documentation. For all of this, I am extremely grateful to him. He helped find the home of our dreams. He is no longer a stranger but a true friend. Thanks Jim for making, possibly, the scariest moment of our lives, one of the most enjoyable! You were a dear to work with and I would not hesitate to do so again! Dana O'Donnell
Dear Jim: We just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate the manner in which you handled the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new home. Although the timing of our sale put is in a real bind, your help was more than that of a Realtor, but more as a family friend. I am not sure we would have made the moving deadline without your help. You and your wife no only helped moved items into storage, but also stored items at your home for us. We are very grateful for that. You always seemed to be available to help and to answer questions along the way. We would recommend you to anyone looking for a realtor that will take their needs personal and always be there when needed. Again, thanks for all your help Ken and Dot Strickland
Mr. ODonnell, I must say that you are by far one of the most professional and straight-forward individuals that I have met in some time. I am very particular in whom I choose to do business with, and I would recommend you to any one that is in need of your services. Thank you for your assistance and should I require your services in the future, you will definitely be the first one I call. May God Bless you and your family!!!
To Whom It May Concern;
I have thoroughly enjoyed my relationship with your company, Keller Williams Realty (Cary Market Center), especially because of your Real Estate Agent, Mr. James O'Donnell. He has given so much of his time and effort in assisting me with the purchase of my property, that I would like to take this opportunity to commend him for his "attention to detail", showing great enthusiasm and by "going the extra mile." Mr. O'Donnell possesses excellent public relations skills and continuously showed me the utmost courtesy during the entire process. He made sure everything ran smoothly and demonstrated never-failing professionalism.
You are fortunate to have James as a Broker with your company. Best wishes to him and the rest of you at Keller Williams Realty.
I was very scared that I wouldn't get the house that I wanted but you wouldn't take no for an answer and now I have a home that I am absolutly in love with. You made everything so easy for me, that home buyers book was a wonderful help to me and you answered every question that I had without hesitation.
Thank you for making my first home purchase an enjoyable experience and not a scary one.

When we became interested in moving to the Cary area we contacted Keller-Williams and were put in touch with Jim O'Donnell. On our first trip to the area Jim met with us at the office to get to know us and to ascertain what we were interested in. He spent the first visit with us showing us some houses, but more importantly showing us the area and getting us acquainted with the area. Jim is very knowledgeable about the triangle area and took the time to show us what a lovely area it is. Before our subsequent trips Jim would send us many listings of houses that he thought we would be interested in and we would chose, e-mail him back and when we got here he had a schedule worked out. He spent a great amount of time with us on our trips till we decided what we wanted. We decided on new construction and Jim was right on top of the construction. He made many trips to the site to check on the progress and also to take pictures for us. He was also available for all our questions and made sure the walk throughs where scheduled when it was convenient for us. Jim has helped us with many things along the way, from finding the house to getting a construction inspector in before our final walk through. The information he has given us, his personnel attention to details, and his follow-thru with problems and questions made the buying experience pleasant and mostly stress free. We feel we not only had a very good agent, but have also made a friend in the area. We would recommend Jim to family and friends.
