What it’s like working with Jim
Jim did a great job for me!
Jim has lots of patience. It took me a long time to find the right place.
Jim was always very accessible!
I am a retired lawyer and judge. I have bought and sold residences in several countries in which I have worked and lived over the years. I have never been inclined to provide a testimonial in favour of a real estate agent.
However, I have no hesitation in doing so in the case of Jim Stephenson. He acted for me as the listing agent for my modest summer cottage on Deer Lake in Parry Sound District. This was an extremely difficult task as the cottage is fairly basic, without road access, well or septic due to the nature of the terrain. Showing the property involved walking in to it over a shoreline path. From the start, Jim was enthusiastic about the property despite its drawbacks. He was obliged to discuss the property in detail with the many potential buyers who inquired. Despite the difficulties in marketing and showing this difficult property, Jim did so with skill and enthusiasm. He hiked in to the cottage with many potential buyers over a period of several months until the right buyers were found. I’ve had bad experiences with real estate agents in the past, but I found Jim to be very professional and quite conscious of his fiduciary duties. In particular I found his feedback after each showing most helpful in allowing me to adjust price and marketing strategy.
I would not hesitate to recommend Jim as an agent for buyers or sellers.
