HIGHLIGHTS OF CLIENT RECOMMENDATIONS ♦ RECENT AUSTIN AREA CLIENTS
"We are writing to recommend Jim & Claire Gilbert as realtor and assistant with Sky Realty. We met the Gilberts a year ago while shopping online for a realtor to sell our home. They called back and came to our home to introduce themselves. They provided us with their personal history and how they came to be realtor & assistant. They emphasized their work ethics which included honesty and integrity when it comes to working for their clients. They provided us with valuable information on what to do to get our home ready to sell. They understood our terms in needing time to complete repairs. They kept in touch with us throughout the year and when all work was completed they were the first we called to see the finished product. They paid attention to detail of what we spent on the updates, and provided us with effective information on what updated homes were selling for in our neighborhood. We sat down and came up with a marketing plan and listed the home. Our home sold in an amazing 14 days and closed 30 days later.
Jim & Claire were always available if it were a phone call, text message, e-mail, or coming over to let us in the house when we were locked out. They always communicated effectively with all parties involved. We felt like we were their most important clients which they were with us each step of the way to the very end." Michael and Sandra Benson (Sellers, SW Austin, Legend Oaks)
"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 (Sellers, Round Rock, Creekmont West)
"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 (New Home Buyers, Buda, Cullen Country)
"I have known Jim and Claire for eight years and have worked with them on two home transactions. ... Always giving 110%, they have a work ethic unlike many that we have known in the past and wholeheartedly have your best interest in mind. In the past and the present, we take great pride in always recommending them first to prospective Clients.
Our current home (sale) posed some great challenges and potential "deal breaking" issues that could have easily derailed the sale .... Jim (guided) us through the process resulting in a very successful sale of our home. For that, we sincerely appreciate their unwavering patience, loyalty, honestly, integrity, trustworthiness, and support.
On July 11, 2014, we closed one chapter in our lives ... are in search of our dream home and land (A small piece of heaven on earth in Texas to raise our family)." Larry & Sandra Elliott (Sellers, Elgin, Cedar Hills)
"Mr. Gilbert always has the most approachable personality. He never pushes his clients. He has always returned our phone calls/text within the hour and was never late picking us up. He always does what he says he is going to do. David & I have changed our minds about several homes we have thought about purchasing, but things didn't work out and Mr. Gilbert was with us every step of the way. If you want a honest and reliable realtor - Jim Gilbert will be your realtor!" David & Mary Insirillo (Buyers, SW Austin, Bridges of Bear Creek)
"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 (New Home Buyers, Buda, Sunfield)
