James facilitated the sale of our home with a direct buyer and charged us a very reasonable price. He listened to our description of our "dream home" and was a skilled negotiator with a challenging seller. He was an excellent listener throughout the whole process. His low fees enabled us to both sell our home and purchase what we were looking for. We would highly recommend him.Judy and Rosemary
