When I originally decided to sell my house I already had a realtor in mind because a lot of my friends are realtors but that quickly changed when I first met James Baker. He came to me on a referral from the neighbor across the street who had just purchased the house through James. His first statement to me was "Please give me 10 minutes of your time to tell you a little about myself and how I conduct business to see if I can't earn your business". Having dealt with so many realtors in prior purchases and having friends that were realtors I thought I was not going to hear anything different then what I had already heard. After that initial discussion I was sold on using James as the Realtor to sell my house for several reasons...1) He was very honest and personable, 2) Offered a multi-structured rate that was very reasonable and afforded me the opportunity to earn a credit on the sale, 3) was very knowledgeable of the area as he has been a resident himself his entire life, 4) Was very informative of the various options for listing properties, 5) Was very upfront and straight to the point, 6) Very professional mannerisms, 7) Multi registered to list in multiple areas, and lastly after he was done making his pitch while I was digesting the information, his continued explanation of who he was and what he was about was so down to earth that you had no choice but to feel totally comfortable...Like you had known him since early childhood. A vast morality difference from other realtors I know because they were all about the quick sale and how much money they were going to make....James was about the quality of the sale. Throughout the entire selling process James always made himself available, regardless the time of day/night, to answer any questions and thoroughly explained every step in the process. The constant interaction kept both of us on the same sheet of music working towards the ultimate goal - a quality and satisfying sale for not just myself but the buyer as well. I own several houses but this is the first one I have sold and James made the entire process stress free and pleasurable. Everything he had conveyed to me to initially earn my business was on the money and he did not waver even a single data point. I would highly recommend him to sell anyone's house because you're not just getting a realtor but a realtor who truly cares about his clients, employs quality service and goes the extra distance that I feel most other realtor's wouldn't which sets him apart from the rest. I look forward to using him on future sells and/or purchases.
