HIGHLIGHTS OF CLIENT RECOMMENDATIONS ♦ RECENT AUSTIN AREA CLIENTS
"Jim Gilbert is a great communicator. He helped with getting the lending process completed even though there was some issues. Overall, Jim's service was great and I am very happy to have had him help me through the process! I would use him in the future for any real estate transaction and would recommend his services to others." Hisham Fagan (Buyer, Colorado Crossing)
"Thank you Jim for everything. You have been such a huge help during the purchase process of my new home. Even after closing you have assisted me and followed up with me on unresolved matters that arised. I don't believe the process of buying a home would have been as smooth as it was without your assistance. Thank you so much for all your assistance and hard work. You are a dedicated man with excellent customer service. Thank you again." Sanaa Farah-Fagan (Buyer, Colorado Crossing)
"Jim & Claire Gilbert represented me in the sale of my home in Elgin. My home of 21 years was built in the 1940's and presented several challenges. It was under contract 3 days after listing, but took 3 months to close. Jim handled all the ups and downs and helped me to understand each one. We finally achieved success! Jim & Claire are lovely people, honest, and I thank them for all they did for me." Sharon Acker (Seller, Elgin, TX) ___________________________
"Jim's greatest strengths are attention to detail and seeing the process through with all deadlines met. He was patient with all our frustrations and he was responsive to our calls to see houses quickly when they came on the market. He was good at educating us. We would use Jim in a future real estate transaction and would also be glad to recommend his services to others." Lou O'Hanlon & Manuel Castano (Buyers, Villages at Western Oaks, Austin)
"We found out about Jim & Claire from mutual friends who had used Jim & Claire for real estate help. We didn't realize how great the service would be. Jim is the 3rd realtor I have used and he is by far the best - most outstanding. He is truly a servant and is very much concerned with meeting your needs & even looks out for your interests as if he were personally buying or selling the home himself. Jim & Claire make a great team. They know the market in Austin well and use every tool they can to give you leverage. We have really been blessed to know them and experience their service." Jonathan & Pam Burris (Sellers, Rancho Alto, Austin)
"My experience with Jim was fantastic. I was on the fence between Jim and another agent my wife and I knew. ... our original property manager ... I live in another state, so getting the house ready to sell was very important & difficult. I needed some information such as market analysis & contractors to determine if I should fix the property or just sell it as is. Jim gave me all the information I needed and much more. ... I cannot tell you how much Jim and Claire made a difference in this. I then decided to make extensive improvements to the home and was rewarded with more money from the sell, plus a truly wonderful experience. I felt the service that was given to us was superb and unmatched. I worked for Nordstrom for many years and I know how a client should be treated. Cannot be beat." Raul & Debbie Jara (Sellers, Sendera, Austin)
"My husband and I contracted with Jim Gilbert with Sky Realty in April 2012 to list our house for sale. ... On a personal level, Jim and Claire are simply good people. They are honest, no pressure professionals whom we have come to trust explicitly and consider our friends. We recommend Jim and Claire Gilbert highly to any prospective seller or buyer. We are proud to call them our agents!" Lou O'Hanlon, Manuel Castano (Sellers, University Hills, Austin)
