We listed our home with Jim in 3/2013. Jim was very professional in helping us determine the right listing price, and patient with us as we had a lot of questions about selling a home, and buying a new one. Our home sold in just five days, and thanks to Jim's negotiation skills, we received the asking price. Jim was also extremely helpful in purchasing our new home. Guiding us on how to choose the right lender for a loan, guiding us to build a short list of homes to view, and negotiating the deal we wanted on the new home we purchased. Probably what I appreciated most is Jim's attention to detail, his expertise in the process, and his outstanding communication with us. We never felt left in the dark; Jim gave us constant updates through the sale and purchase process, and was always prompt in returning phone calls and emails. I would highly recommend Jim to anyone in the market to buy and/or sell real estate.

In Sept. 2012, I contacted Jim Grapes at Lilac City Real Estate about finding a rental. He suggested applying for a loan to buy a home; he put me in touch with Jeff Schutz at Sterling home loans. I thought, "I could give it a shot, there's no harm in trying." I picked up the keys to my house on Wed. March 6, 2013. This was a journey; Jeff, Jim and I all worked diligently, gathering verifications and financial history and submitting the necessary paperwork. Was it worth it? Yes it was. Instead of paying rent, I'm building equity; I live in a great neighborhood, in one of the nicest cities in the country. Instead of being a renter, I'm an owner. It makes a difference in your self-esteem, your attitude and your outlook on life. I'm so lucky to have found Jim. I have a home of my own now. Thanks Jim.

I recently bought the home I could only dream about! Jim Grapes took his time and helped me with the entire buying process. He answered ALL my questions, and if he didn't know them, he found them for me. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone I know. His calm, professional, and knowledgeable demeanor would work well with even the hardest of individuals. He cares about what he is doing, and wants you to be happy every step along the way. Thanks JIM!!!!
