Jim Starwalt Testimonials

  • Dan Plyman

    Jim's office is professional and responsive. Our house sold at listed price within days of listing. His team is the best. If you want results, you want Jim Starwalt.

  • Pete Halverson

    Jim is an excellent realtor and he and his team are extremely professional, helpful, and friendly. He is a wealth of knowledge. Our appraisal came back very low and full of errors. Jim was able to help us request a second appraisal from a local lender and a local appraiser which came back 30k higher. I would recommend Jim Starwalt to anyone looking to buy or sell!

  • Eric Muschlitz

    Jim sold our home in 24 hours through his online presence. He took time to walk us through the entire process. He took quality pictures of the home for online reference, which created multiple offers on our home.

  • Laura Phipps

    Jim was wonderful in our quest to sell our house. We live in another state and we were able to list and complete the sale with no trouble at all. HIs on-line tools made us feel like we were in the loop for all of the showings. Jim coordinated with our tenant and we did not have to worry about a thing. He used his expertise to set the price of our house perfectly and it sold very quickly. He and his team made sure the process of selling our house was stress free and positive. We highly recommend his services.

  • John Zygmunt

    Jim and his team were very easy to work with. They handled both a buy and a sell transaction at the same time and made the process seem easy, which I'm sure it was not. They were always in communication with us regarding the status or if we needed to do anything. Highly recommended!

  • Mary Gibas

    Jim's advice and helpfulness made him a pleasure to work with. He was quick to reply and help with any questions I had during this process.

  • Scott Ollendick

    Jim is an excellent realtor and very unlike many of the realtors my wife and I met previously. His character can be decsribed in one word "caring'. Jim kept our in selling our mother in laws home. He is very personable, helpful, professional and always willing to answer all questions. We highly recommend Jim and will use him again if needed.

  • Jarret Brutlag

    I have been very impressed with the services provided by Jim Starwalt and his team. Jim helped me sell my home and is very knowledgeable with the process and the market. I would recommend Jim to friends and family.

  • Joe Wisehart

    Jim worked with us over a 6 month period to sell a Victorian niche home. He provided solid research on the local market and was knowledgable about the community. He utilized multiple selling techniques as a part of the marketing process. When an offer was accepted, Jim stayed on top of the transaction until the day of close.

  • Julianna Javor

    I recently had to relocate fairly fast and Jim and his team made the sale of my home smooth and fast. He has an outstanding understanding of the real estate market, financing and priced the house right. He was a trusted partner in the selling of my house and provided great advice for every step along the way. The house sold fast and the transaction was smooth. Jim’s team is also extremely responsive and helpful. I highly recommend Jim Starwalt to anyone selling.
