Never miss out on great a listing!
I was lucky enough to find Jim when I was in a difficult situation. The market was crazy hot, and I was in Orlando for two weeks, starting a new job, with the task of finding my family a home we could move into a month later. We needed to be in the right middle school and high school. There were basically no houses on the market. Jim spent the whole two weeks with me. We were looking at any house that came on the market within hours of it being listed. I got discouraged and was ready to give up. Jim kept encouraging me and had an incredibly upbeat attitude. And I did get the perfect house! He helped me close very fast and found people who could fix a couple of things before we moved. The house was ready for my family when we arrived. We have been in the house for a month now, and I love it. Thank you, Jim, for making this possible! - Dr. Maggy Tomova
