Thank Goodness you called ... You had our home on the market, worked your system as you said you would and we had multiple times the internet traffic and more foot traffic in two weeks that the entire four months with the other agent. And best of all within 10 days and two weekends, you had a strong offer that we gratefully accepted.
We appreciated all the work to get the house sold as quickly as it did. We also appreciated how honest and right to the point you were. I know that this is generally one of the more stressful times and you made it easy.
Jim Did more than a superior job. He analyzed the property at great length. He went over and above the usual in planning an open house and during that time had 13 potential buyers. He negotiated with the last four buyers to increase the sale price by almost 7%
After being on the market with another agent for 4 months with few showings and no offers I know that my home was not an easy sale. It was your honesty and steadfast approach to selling my home that FINALLY got it sold!! You helped me come up with a realistic sale price and a practical time frame in which to sell it.
He is without a doubt, the best of the best. My house was on the market for over three months with another "top" Realtor and I had not gotten any interest or offers. Jim took over in early January 2016 and I had a firm offer by the end of January, less than 30 days! And then I closed on the sale 58 days later! That's record time, especially being that other homes in my neighborhood are not sell! During the process Jim kept informed of all comments of potential buyers coming through my home, provided recommendations on what to do to cause interest and an offer and kept me informed every step of the way. If you want to sell your house and need a seasoned realtor that will advise and guide you through the process, Jim Bimstefer is the man! If he had not taken over the sale of my house I'd still be there vs living in my retirement home! Dorothy Moore, LT, USN, Retired
Hey Jim ... i wanted to thank you for selling my house, it was right on time. I would recommend you to anyone! Good job especially under the challenging cirecumstances. The fact that you got the job done in less tahn 30 days after i had been on the market with another agent for over 6 months was truly remarkable. I sincerely apriciated you taking the time to talk me through the process and the support/advice as decisions had to be made. I think that really made the difference for me.
None of the other realtors we interviewed made the recommendations for these types of services. We believe that these services are what made the difference in getting our home sold because we were able to reach a larger audience.
You sold our home in essentially the first weekend it was listed!
All along the way I felt I was not only informed of the progress, but also educated on how your process worked.
The service that you and your assistant, Amy, provided made us feel very secure and comfortable.
Factual in Presentation, Careful Consideration of our Thoughts and Ideas, Always responsive even when the same question was asked more than once
Loyalty, Competence & Service rarely work hand in hand - The exception is Jim Bim
I can't say enough about Jim Bim. He is absolutely awesome and delivers on his promises. He is completely on top of what is going on in the current market and advises accordingly. You canít do better.
Jim Bim did a commendable job. He was personal, professional and great at keeping us informed every step of the way.
In hindsight, i am convinced that without Jim Bim's expertise in all aspects of the process and his exceptional negotiation skills, neither sale would have ever been realized. His high professionalism and his never ending tenacity in following up with all parties involved at every step of the way were truly instrumental to a successful completion of the deal.
Needless to say, the entire experience was fabulous. My home sold within weeks. His personal attention to me and my home was beyond reproach.
Your activity on a daily basis to get the property seen and sold, the communication with me on a very regular basis, the guidance through the negotiations with the buyer, the help with issues related to the home inspection, and all the work done to ensure the close would come off on schedule seem way beyond what other agents could hope to offer. My house listed on January 19th 2010 and closed today, March 22nd 2010. I am not really sure how best to thank you for putting your words into action and moving this property so quickly in such a down market.
Jim Came to the rescue, and took our awful situation on! He spent the time explaining the current housing market and what we would need to do to sell quickly - which was our goal. Our only wish is that we would have found Jim sooner!
Now this is exciting - Less than 4% of all licensed real estate agents have earned this exclusive designation and now Jim Bim has earned his CRS. The Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) is the highest Designation awarded to sales associates in the residential sales field. The CRS Designation recognizes professional accomplishments in both experience and education. Since 1977 the Council of Residential Specialists has been conferring the CRS Designation on agents who meet its stringent requirements
It is refreshing to see superior service in action!
Thank you so much for getting our house sold quickly and efficiently in such an unfavorable market(to say the least). After being on the market for over 1 year with another "top agent", my home expiredy, you contacted me and I am so very glad that you did!
Jim had our house on the market by the following Friday and priced within one hundred dollars of our previous list price. That weekend we had 7 showings(they all showed up) and by Tuesday afternoon we had an offer on the house. Amazing, Jim was able to do for us in 5 days what one of those" large" companies were not able to do in 6 months!
I can't say enough about how pleased my husband and I were with Jim's services. Throughout the process, he kept my husband and I aware of the status of our house through telephone calls and emails, and continued to market the house aggressively,e ven after we had received offers, Just in case."
i appreciated how easy it was to stay in contact with you through telephone and email especially since we had already moved out of state.
Jim We can not say thankyou enough - you saved us
I suppose it is a realtor's job to sell the homes that they have been entrusted to sell. That being said, why did our previous two "top producer" agents fail to get our home sold over a period of 189 days? When we spoke over the phone, I immediately recognized that you were truly different. You were professional, honest, straight forward and had a clearly defined plan for our success.
Regardingy ou personally,t here is a special blend of complete competency in doing what you do combined with a low-keyed,respectful approach that yield a remarkable level of integrity and support that is virtually unseen in today's business environment
A busy physician at the emergency room/Shock trauma center with two kids and wife we were really busy. We tried some agents and quit on all because we were doing a better job ourselves. Every day search and giving them a call saying there is a new one in the market and by the time they made a move it was sold. We lost again and again. Until we found Jim. From the very first few times we realized this cooke has a different taste ! Professional, no messing around and least BS that you always hear from most of agents
I am glad that I decided to go with you after interviewing four other top agents. Choosing Jim Bim was the best decision I made in this transaction. You are a wonderful person. Very professional, polite, courteous, understanding, patient, thorough in your performance of duty, helpful, easy to communicate with, and a down right good family man, and I like that in a person who I choose to do business with.
I believe that for both Realtors and lendets it is extremely beneficial to wotk with people that you know and trust to get the iob done, all while leaving customers satisfied well beyond theit expectations.
He has a very pleasant manner, and is extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market. Jim has been thorough, efficient, and dependable. It has beena pleasure working with Jim.
Jim listed my home. He did such a fantastic job, with the help of his staff, in marketing my home, that he was able to bring in 37 appointments the first weekend of the listing. I was amazed. Then from there, plenty of offers starting rolling in, and then he had to manage up to 8 offers on my house - and this was all happening just 5 days into my house being on the market.
I found Jim Bim's aproach refreshing, his manor sincere and confident and his help and involvement throughout the slae of my home invaluable.
You have made this house hunting and acquiring a pleasure. You are on your game and your professionalism shows every time you make contact.
Through every single step of the process, Jim Bim & Florie were professional, ethical, honest, responsive, kind and caring.
Jim, I have learned more about selling and buying a home working with you than combining the previous 4 home sales my wife and I have managed. Thanks again for all your help.
your positive can-do way eased thing all around.
JIM BIM is always willing to help!
Over the past 30 years, I have bought at least a dozen homes, worked with several property management companies, and sold a few of those homes. If I ranked all of the real estate people with whom I have worked, none has worked as hard and as earnestly as Jim Bim!
The personal qualities it took you to achieve this distinction are among the characteristics I seek in coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Sales Associate.
I can attest that Jim is an expert in the real estate market and has several successful approaches to selling a house. Although my h usband and l were initially hesitant to follow some of Jim Bim's advice, we are so thankful we did.
You are an incredible person and very talented in your field. It is hard to express in words how much your help and guidance meant to us.
What a difference! We heard from Jim and his staff on a regular basis and we now had someone who really listened to us and was on our side. At the end of 2 weeks and several visits form Jim Bim we had a different home. At the same time, Jim and his staff were doing what he called a presale alerts and when we hit the market, the buyers came flooding in. By the end of the second weekend, we had several offers and sold our home while netted more money in our pocket than we had ever hoped for. Jim Bim and his staff handled all of the details and made the transaction actually enjoyable. Thanks Jim, you did exactly what you said you'd do and now we are happily able to move to our retirement home
We can't tell you how much we appreciate all you've done throughout this entire situation. The real estate gods should bless you and shine down upon you for your patience and hard work. Thanks again.
The buyer was totally unreasonable about everything and was going to walk out of closing. Jim Bim agreed to meet him at the new home at 8:00am the next morning to make the necessary changes. Jim did meet him and did the minor fixes that needed to be done. I really believe that if Jim had not gone "over and above" in his responsibilities, we would have lost this sale'
I was impressed from the very beginning. JIM BIM picked up the ball and did everything I had demanded of an agent. No longer was I calling an agent to inquire about my property, but he was calling me with the latest Developments and sending copies of advertisements with frequency. He was realistic with numerous incoming offers and gave me his professional perspective on what he thought was in my best interest, having the figures prepared well in advance. In fact, the house would finally sell in less than 90 days at a price higher than I had asked or ever expected given the market in the area.
JIM BIM is one of the top agents int he entire world ... top 1% and just a hand full of realtor who are in the exclusive Re/Max Hall of Fame!
Jim I'd like to acknowledge your determination, integrity, persistence and commitment to excellence both in your real estate dealings and your personal life. Many agents set goals, make promises and plan success but few actually hit their goals, keep their promises and achieve success. You have done all three.
