To say the home buying

To say the home buying process is anything less than stressful is a felony! Jim, first and foremost, helped us cope, understand and work through every step when we bought our home. There were many, upon many moments where we needed counsel and Jim was always there. His responses were immediate and insightful. Speaking with Jim was like speaking with a friend and you knew he had your best interest in mind. So, the needed, constant communication with him never became a chore. My husband and I can say, without shadow of a doubt, that Jim was our cheerleader that motivated us to continue on (believe us, our situation was one for the books!).

Now, that we are done (yay!), and the process is over, our hands have been wiped clean; we are still going to continue our rapport with Jim. Knowing he has invested so much time with us, there is no reason to cease our relationship now. We thank Jim for getting our family to where we are today, a brand new home for our son to grow up in.
