Tell Us Your Story

Jim is simply as good as it gets.

As my Buyer's Agent, Jim was attentive, informed, and extremely tuned into my needs and wants. Sometimes these had to do with the property, sometimes they had to do with the process. In both forums, I felt like I had a true advocate who always kept me educated. There were no surprises, which was really important to me! That's not to say there were no hiccups-- this is real estate after all! But when they happened, Jim made sure I knew the full situation, including my options, at every turn. I never had difficulty getting in touch with Jim, which was very reassuring during a stressful process. Jim Houghton is a class act all the way. You can be confident that you are in good hands!

Jim, Lloyd and I want to extend our sincere appreciation for all of your support these many months.

I know it was a bit of a roller-coaster as we started back last year, then stopped and then re-started and you were always an incredibly good sport. You took the time to understand our needs/wants and we are thrilled with our new home. We have already left as Lloyd headed back to Texas and I’m in CT but it was fun to live there for a day . And now we can’t wait to come back. Thanks again for being so great to work with and once we move, we’d love to have your gang over. All the best, -laurie

I've been working with Jim since February of this year.

The sale of my house was probably one of the most complicated real estate transactions possible. My husband and I were going through a separation and mortgage was under water. Even though Jim was one of the farthest agents from the home I was selling (distance wise) he was the most qualified and motivated agent we interviewed. My ex husband used to work for Prudential in Oxford, PA as an agent so the expectations were high and we interviewed several seasoned agents. Our home was complicated short sale with 2 mortgages. Jim went above and beyond to communicate with us separately and walked us through every step of the process. He spent the entire day with me staging my house for the pictures and helped me do what was necessary to get it on the market. He did extensive research to price it right, and made countless calls our behalf to the banks to get the sale amount accepted. We listed it on a Sunday night, he marketed it well and we had 3 showings and an offer by Tuesday. If I had to guess Jim made at least 300 calls/emails on our behalf to get us to settlement, which was delayed by the banks 3 times. He worked so hard all summer long to make it happen and there was never a delay in response. He always had our best interests in mind. I truly feel if it wasn't for Jim my house would have went into foreclosure. His determination, excellent communication and negotiation skills sold my house in August. Jim is still helping us after the sale to get the paperwork we need from the banks, I'm incredibly grateful. I wish you the best of luck and feel confident if you partner with Jim it will be a great experience!

I've used Jim Houghton as my realtor for 3 separate transactions over the past 2 years.

Jim sold 2 of my properties and also found my forever home. He has always been very professional, patient, understanding, supportive and extremely responsive. He went above and beyond on all 3 transactions, one of which posed a very sensitive personal situation that Jim handled extremely well. I've worked with several other agents in the past, and wasn't very impressed. Jim's not the typical agent, he acts as an advocate for his clients and he takes his job very seriously. He kept me well informed, outlined the pros/cons and made me feel very comfortable with my decisions. I hope not to move again anytime soon, but if I do I will be calling Jim. In the meantime, I will recommend his service to anyone who needs a stellar real estate agent.

Dear Jim, We wanted to take a moment to thank you for assisting us with the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new one.

You have so many positive qualities as a realtor that we probably can’t capture them all. We found you to be ever a gentleman with a knack for being prompt and proactive without being intrusive. You always returned our calls and emails in a timely manner and never seemed rushed, although we know how busy you often were. When we spoke with you, we always knew that we had your full attention and commitment. Your many suggestions regarding the sale of our previous home were invaluable. In all, we found you knowledgeable, trustworthy, hard-working, and polite. We can’t thank you enough and would highly recommend you to others who are looking for a great real estate agent.
