Jim is constantly monitoring the local market in order to keep your home competitive and strategically listed, and to keep buyers updated so they can make a decision based on the latest information. Second, is intelligent resource management. Not only does this mean that Jim utilizes the latest technology to market and monitor your listing, but also, he is able to call upon a wide network of contacts who can solve any issue that may arise before it becomes a problem for his buyer or his seller. Finally, intelligent communication. Jim will be in constant contact with you about the status of your listing, or about the status of the market, enabling you to make intelligent decisions about buying or selling your home.
