What People Are Saying About Jim

“I first recommended Jim to my daughter who was buying a condo in Boston. Buying real estate, especially for the first time is not a linear process and issues to manage almost always develop. When those issues came up with my daughter’s transaction, Jim was there immediately to offer innovative solutions. He returns calls quickly and was frequently there to calm her fears.

I just finished refinancing my home of 15 years with Jim, and again while transactions seem to always have bumps caused but outside sources, Jim was always there with a solution. His experience and candor makes him a great resource.

Lastly, my son has had a unique real estate situation and for the last year Jim has been in regular contact with him with insightful recommendations. When the time comes for him to make the next real estate move for his family, I’m certain Jim will be in the middle with wisdom and advice.”

-Jack H.

“Jim was a pleasure to work with, making the re-financing a very painless procedure. The entire process was seamless and took less time than i expected. Jim is knowledgeable, professional and patient, which is a combination that helps to alleviate all of the stress usually associated with mortgage approvals. I would recommend Jim to anyone looking to purchase or refinance their home.”

-Debbie from Coventry, RI
