James from the other realtors I worked with previously was his maturity and honesty throughout our business relationship. As a first time buyer, I felt utterly pressured to purchase a home quickly from the real estate clients who I were recommended to me. These clients were not interested in my personal needs and my happiness, but rather interested in making a sale and the commission that accompanied it. During our interactions, at no time did I feel James would jeopardize his dedication to ensuring that he was going to sell me the place that was right for ME, just so he could make the sale. What is most important to James is that his client is satisfied in the long run, because he knows that that is the way he will increase his clientele and his good name.
In today’s cutthroat real estate market, the buyer needs someone who is AGGRESSIVE, someone who isn’t afraid to be persistent and convince the SELLER that the client he is representing is THE buyer for the property. James did that for me. When we finally found the property that I wanted to purchase, James ensured that our bid was the FIRST one recieved by the seller, complete with all of the necessary information required for a strong bid, along with a personalized letter written by James himself as an added touch. Although there were 9 bids on the property, I was chosen as the successful bidder. If it weren’t for James’ communications with the seller’s agent and quick response, I could have possibly lost the property. I am grateful that I had James representing me during the purchase.
In addition to his style, James has a extremely flexible schedule, working around his client’s schedule, often times working 7 days a week in order to meet these demands on his time. He was always prompt with returning phone calls, and is additionally accessible by e-mail. Having a background of computer information systems, James utilizes the latest internet technology to communicate with his clients. James set up a system whereby the newest listings were immediately sent to my e-mail address, often times followed up by a phone call. James would almost always acquire an viewing appointment within 1-2 days of the new listing, thereby ensuring that I could be one of the first potential buyers of the newly listed property.
In summary, I cannot highly recommend James Bridges enough. I will undoubtedly use his services again for the purchase of my next property, and have already made a number of referrals to my co-workers and friends who are in the market to purchase real estate.
