My wife and I used Jim’s services for the listing and sale of our home in north London, Ontario. Initially, Jim was one of a number of agents that we considered when listing, but it didn’t take long to realize that he was the best choice for us. Our goals when listing were to sell the house fast and to get a decent price, and with Jim’s help we were able to exceed our expectations.
Within two days of my initial call to Jim, our house was on the market and a full virtual tour was up on Jim’s website. Only five days after hitting MLS, our house was sold through a multiple-offer situation – and it sold above our asking price! I am confident that Jim’s real estate experience, honesty, personal attention, and modern approach to real estate marketing had a significant impact on the quick and successful sale of our home. I would recommend Jim to anyone considering selling their real estate.
Jim is quick to provide the personal attention and sound advice that you expect when choosing a real estate professional, and he is very easy to get along with (which definitely helps the sale process). If we could sell our house again we wouldn’t change a thing, and we thank Jim for making the process so enjoyable.
Jim Straughan just helped us find and purchase our first home. When we began looking we quickly found that many agents would just email us whatever listings that came up with little regard as to whether it would be of interest to us or not. Jim, on the other hand, called us personally the moment a house became available that he knew we would want to see. In fact the day the house that we just purchased came on to the market Jim made sure that we were the first people there to view it.
As he showed us the house he was very down to earth, honest and open with us. He pointed out things about the house that could be problematic as well as the finer points. Since this was our first house and my wife and I were novices, Jim went out of his way to help us find a lawyer, a home inspector, a contractor for some alterations, and even financing. After the deal was finalized we went out to dinner to celebrate with Jim and his charming wife Heather. From our very first phone conversation I felt confident that we had found the right person to help us find our home. Jim made sure that every step of the process was handled quickly, diligently, and with a great deal of professionalism. We thank you Jim for making the transition into our first home so effortless.

Thank you for the efficient and through service that you've provided in the purchase of a home for my mother in London, Ontario. The quality of your service was excellent. The time and patience you gave, reflects your professionalism, your integrity and the integrity of your work. You took the time to understand our needs, and found the perfect house. In real estate business, it's difficult to find a realtor that is trustworthy and has the clients best interest in mind. But you were incredibly honest, helpful, and you took the time to aswer any questions that we had. You made the process simple and easy to understand. Instead of stressing over details, we were able to focus on the excitement of the house. The purchase of this home has meant so much to me and my family.
Thank you again,
I am pleased to write this recommendation for Jim Straughan. As I was purchasing my first home, I didn’t quite know where to start, what steps I should take in making this important investment. I am the sort of person who likes to shop, however being new to the market I felt mind- boggled with either too many options or not enough. Jim did excellent work for me, providing a scope of options that matched what I was looking for in a home. Jim connected me to house listings that I would not have found on my own, and provided me with important contacts. If I had any questions, he was very approachable. Jim gives an honest opinion, genuine advice. I am overall impressed with Jim’s experience and would recommend him to you as an excellent Realtor in helping you purchase/sell your home.
