HIGHLIGHTS OF CLIENT RECOMMENDATIONS ♦ RECENT AUSTIN AREA CLIENTS
"Jim is an expert in the home buying process. He provided me with truthful insight and clear information and advice about the area I was searching in and helped me narrow down what I really wanted. I moved to the Austin area in July 2014 and Jim took me on a tour of various Austin communities to get a feel and vibe for different areas. Jim is a class act and a great Realtor; I highly recommend Jim and Claire!" Jody Gilzene (2015 New Home Buyer, Southpark Meadows, Austin)
"Working with Jim and Claire has been a very good experience. Jim is a very easy agent to work with. He is very knowledgeable, honest, prompt, and has very good communication skills. The process of buying and selling my home was very easy and smooth. I would recommend them to anyone who likes individualized as well as general services. Jim was on top of everything, all I had to do was sign the papers. I could not have asked for better service. Thank you Jim and Claire!!" Sanaa Farah-Fagan (2015 Seller, Colorado Crossing, Austin)
"Jim Gilbert was very helpful in our buying process. He would respond to our phone calls and emails in time so that we did not waste our time waiting for his reply. He answered all our questions to the best of his knowledge. His wife, Claire, was a fun person to work with as well. I would recommend both Jim and Claire Gilbert as your real estate agent and assistant." Bijaya and Reet Dhakal (2015 New Home Buyers, Ranch at Brushy Creek, Cedar Park)
"It is a pleasure to work with Jim Gilbert as realtor for any individual or family searching for the ideal home for their unique situation. We were first time home buyers who had been renting for several years and were ready to make the move to purchase our own home. ... Jim had an initial meeting with us and paid close attention to our needs and wants in a single family home as well as our budgetary limitations. ... Once we found our dream home, together we discussed a deal that was good for us and made the seller happy as well. We were extremely pleased with the timing, especially in the current market situation. ... We found Jim to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were the only customers, although we know that was not the case. He returned all phone calls and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. Jim was always very honest and upfront and all his advice was very useful. We are pleased to recommend Jim Gilbert to anyone looking to buy a home. If we ever need to move again, he will be our first choice in real estate agents. If you want to discuss our experience in more detail please feel free to ask Jim for our contact information and contact us." Leslie & Justin Davis (2015 Buyers, Bauerle Ranch, Austin)
"In August my wife and I started looking at houses. I asked my brother for the name of his realtor due to his satisfaction with him. My brother sent me Jim Gilbert's information and Jim started digging right away. He was very knowledgeable of the market and patient. In late August my wife and I picked a home and had Jim put in an offer. That is when Jim's patience really showed through. Even though we had trouble with the other realtor getting back to us with issues even after the offer was accepted, Jim continued to be up front and transparent. I know this process would have been much worse without Jim and his wife working for us. So to me it was easy to see that if you want someone dedicated to your home buying process, you need to call Jim and Claire." Robert & Kristina Dickerson (2014 Buyers, Green Meadows, Buda.
"I can highly recommend Jim Gilbert to be anyone’s realtor. He gave our old house a thorough walk-through, with us. He told us the items we should address, such as touch-up paint, and install new carpet upstairs. When the house was on the market, I had to be out of town, and he handled all the details long distance, keeping me well-informed. The house was sold within 3 days, and then he walked me patiently through the paperwork. I do appreciate Jim’s attention to detail, going above & beyond, to secure our asking price, and making our sale a success! Thank you!" Louis & Margaret Hughston (2014 Sellers, Creekmont West, Round Rock)
"I highly recommend Jim Gilbert and his Realtor expertise. He was with us every step of the way, through all the required paperwork and the building process. He explained our buyer's rights, and pressed the builder to live up to his promises. With Jim in our corner, we had an invaluable advocate, assuring us that our new home would be all we expected and all that the builder had promised us." Louis & Margaret Hughston (2014 New Home Buyers, Cullen Country, Buda)
"It is our pleasure to recommend Jim Gilbert as a real estate agent for anyone searching for their ideal home. Initially, we dealt with Jim online because we weren't living in the Austin area. At our first meeting, we knew we had made the right decision. Jim knew exactly what we were looking for and did not waste our time with homes out of our price range or that did not meet our needs. Jim is a very attentive agent and always returned our phone calls, texts and emails promptly. We never felt neglected. We felt that he truly cared. Jim is very personable, honest, and dependable which are valuable assets that are hard to find. If we ever sell or buy again, Jim will be our realtor." Bill & Lola MacDonald (2014 New Home Buyers, Sunfield, Buda)
