Short Sale Expert

"To say that the process to purchase my new short sale condo was arduous, would be a complete UNDERSTATEMENT, however, Jim was always responsive, always reflective, always aware of my needs and concerns.
I highly recommend him!"

I can't imagine

"Thank you, we greatly appreciate all your help in not only finding our home but in helping us get through the crazy short sale process.

Jim has represented me multiple times in both buying and selling over the past 13 years. Each purchase with him has gone off without a hitch even the most recent purchase with my wife in the northern suburbs. (difficult short sale made easy with his expertise) Jim will take his time with you and help you find what your looking for no matter how much you need to see to find it.
residential, rental, lake house, city or suburbs he will get it done.

Not only have you proven yourself to me multiple times now by finding the perfect properties but you do it quickly.
I can't imagine anyone else handling my real estate needs as you have and I know that no one else could handle my ranting and venting like you did for this short sale. Thanks Jim"

- Scott and Julie


Goes the extra mile to work

"Jim is an excellent broker. He is very knowledgeable in his trade and goes the extra mile to work with you and ensure success in finding what you need within your budget and provide purchasers to sell your property quickly. He works with you through your transactions and closing to make it easy and fool proof.

Help diligently and patiently

"Jim Michaels will help diligently and patiently anyone 'til they find their ideal house. He did just like that to us, Thanks Jim"

- Fidel B


Jim is a man of his word.

"I met with James for a consultation where he walked me through the home-buying process (especially as it relates to short-sales), the overall picture of the housing market, and his personal history as a realtor. I immediately felt comfortable with his demeanor and, to date, we have visited properties on two separate occasions. Though I have yet to find my dream home, Jim has increased my understanding of building types, and because of that I have knowledge of more acceptable home options to consider than when I first started out. I am now a more optimistic, potential home owner."

- Alicia J


Stuning example of follow-through

"As first time home buyers, Jim made the whole process so smooth! He is professional, knowledgeable, and considerate to our needs/wants in buying our 1st home. He takes the time to "listen" to his clients...I would recommend him to all my friends and family!! Can't wait to work with him again when we look for our dream home!!
