"Jim was very proactive during our search for a new home. He was responsive, professional, always on time, and made sure that all parties involved were on the same page when it came time to purchasing our new home. I would highly recommend Jim to anyone whose interested in moving to or within Chicago, as he was very familiar with the best neighborhoods when it came to schools, public transportation, dining, etc."
