"The rapid sale of our home in Knoxville allowed us to proceed with the purchase here in Washington. Without question you are the most effective real estate agent we have come across." Kenneth D. Ham, Biologist Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife Ellensburg, Washington
“We had our home listed with two other brokers, no sale. You got it sold by telling us what we needed to know instead of what we wanted to here. We highly recommend you to anyone thinking of selling their home.”
George & Anna Mae Schrader, Retired
“Your knowledge of financing and the Knoxville real estate market made it possible for us to buy a much nicer home at a lower payment than I would have thought possible. Thank you for doing such a wonderful job.
Frank & Jenny Watson, Independent Management Consultant
“Jim, we really appreciate the terrific job you did helping us buy our new home. It’s always stressful moving to a new city but you were right there every step of the way. We will certainly be calling you the next time we buy or sell.
Paul Moore, Executive Vice PresidentPegasus Hospitality Systems
“Jim, I just wanted to thank you for the fine job you did selling my mother’s house. It was very difficult for me to put her in the nursing home; at least you took the burden of selling her house off me. Thank you so much.”
Helen Brannon, Housewife
“Jim, just a short note to say thanks again for selling my house in Knoxville. I was very impressed by you and everything you did. If I find anyone in San Francisco moving your way I will tell them to call you.”
