Hi cannot say enough wonderful things about Jim. Not only is he knowledgeable and professional, but he is passionate about his work. Jim was patient with us as we worked towards an ideal time to buy and then was 100% ready to make sure our contract and closing went through both quickly and without a hitch. As first time home buyers, Jim was excellent at helping to answer questions even when we weren’t sure what questions we should be asking. I felt that he only had our best interest at heart and I would recommend him to anyone looking for the best experience in town.

Jim Van Paepeghem helped my brother navigate through his home buying experience and I knew my family and I could count on him to do the same for me. Jim is very knowledgeable about the process and looks out for your interests. He is quick to respond to any question and always gives his honest opinion. We strongly recommend Jim to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.

Jim was a wonderful choice for realtor! He listened to us regarding our needs and sold our home in record time. Not only is he exceptionally knowledgeable regarding his profession, but he is friendly and personable. He kept us updated every step of the way and stayed in constant contact. Calls were returned almost immediately and any concerns we had we handled in a timely manner. Not only WOULD we recommend him but we HAVE recommended him. We are simple down-to-Earth people and I have to add that, not only is Jim a professional, he’s also a hoot! He was both a success and a pleasure to do business with.
