"Jim is someone you can always count on. We worked with Jim on both ends, both in the selling process and in the buying process, and through it all he was always perfectly prompt and responsive. Jim’s knowledge base about housing runs both broad and deep, and he has a wide variety of helpful contacts, from contractors to stagers to landscapers. Dependable, reliable, easygoing, and patient, Jim will make anyone’s home-buying and/or home-selling experience run as smoothly as possible! "

"We moved to the D.C. area from out of state, and needed an experienced realtor to help us find a home in a specific school district as an accommodation for our special-needs son. I think what sets Jim apart the most is he really listens to his clients to understand their needs and wishes. He doesn't listen simply to respond. He took great care in helping us think through our options, remain within our budget and strategize in negotiating. Jim also took an incredible amount of time with us to show us a whole host of houses to help us make our decision. Most of all, Jim is an excellent person who cares about his clients and community. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone, and will use his services again."

"Our experience with Jim Connolly in preparing for sale, showing and negotiating the contract was handled professionally and efficiently. Communication and sought after advice demonstrated his knowledge and expertise backed by years of experience. We asked many questions about the process to determine price and best way to present our home. We had a contract soon after the first showing and Jim continued to be responsive and forthcoming about options to make informed decisions. We felt confident that we covered all aspects of the sale from showing to closing. Jim enabled us to feel informed and comfortable with our decisions and we would highly recommend his expertise. Jim is the utmost, skilled real estate professional who represented us and our home well."
