I've found great fulfillment in my career as a Realtor, and I am passionate about the level of personal service that I am able to provide to each and every one of my clients. As with all career paths, if you want to excel, you must do something better than everyone else and for me this includes always being willing to go the extra mile for my clients; to openly communicate and be respectful with all parties involved in the transaction, to convey my expertise of the current market, the processes involved in buying or selling a home and the vital aspects of negotiation needed to navigate a successful real estate transaction. It is this dedication that has led to me being recognized as an F.C. Tucker 'Rising Star' in 2014-2015.

If you will take a moment to read my testimonials you will have a clear understanding of my philosophy; what matters most to me is the personal connection that I make with my clients and their utmost satisfaction with the high level of service that I provide. I am interested in building relationships that last.

Please call me if you or anyone you know is considering buying or selling a home in the near future. I would be happy to provide you with a no obligation market analysis and am confident that your expectations will be exceeded with me as your Realtor. Lastly, please know that the success of my business is driven by word of mouth referrals and therefore I am never too busy for your referrals!!

Jim, Today marks 1 week since I closed, I wanted to tell you again how happy I am with my new home. I appreciate your patience over the last year, helping me whittle down a location and identifying home features that were most important to me. As disappointed I was in the moment when we lost a few places due to a hot market, I am now incredibly grateful. It all worked out for the best. I LOVE being tucked back inside The Fort property and practically in a state park--I ran in the park over the weekend, and it's so beautiful!! The YMCA and a few restaurants in walking distance (pizza and Mexican-my favorites) are a bonus too! The commute to work is cut in half, and I feel close to everything with 465 only minutes away. The living space and amenities in the home itself and the small yard is just perfect for me! And, as July 1st rolls around, I feel so relieved to not be shelling out that burdensome HOA!! I appreciate all your efforts to quickly show me homes I was interested in seeing and steering me clear of homes/areas/ and bidding wars that ultimately led me to my perfect long-term home! I've woken up feeling overwhelmed with gratitude for your efforts on my behalf (and the Grace that I believe also lead me here) every single one of the last 7 mornings. I wanted to tell you how much I appreciated everything. I know you'll find success in this career, if you give all your clients the patience and professionalism that you gave me throughout my home buying process. Thanks again!!

Jim was exceptional through all stages of the home buying process.  His intensity reflected my own from the initial casual browsing of the market to the aggressive closing the deal, which allowed me to shop at a pace I was comfortable with.  His keen eye, knowledge of homes, and advice helped me identify what situations I could face with each home we examined.  Even when I felt like I might have been a burden with my constant barrage of questions and requests to see homes, Jim kept a smile and worked with me.  Jim is not only a trusted realtor, but has a network of trusted professionals that matched his customer service commitment that made the whole experience as pleasant and simple as could be.

I was referred to Jim, from a family member, and was very surprised on how fast he followed up with me when I contacted him initially.  Once we met and talked about what I was looking for I was then emailed many homes that Jim thought I would be interested in and then we could set up showings...he was right on in the type of home I was looking for and made life easier for me.  After seeing a few homes I knew exactly what home I wanted and Jim was able to put my offer to the listing agent a few hours after the showing and we had an offer accepted in the next two days.  I knew that having a good realtor was important and very thankful that Jim was recommended to me but Jim was always going above and beyond. Jim ALWAYS went above and beyond for me and this is what make him successful at what he does. I would not hesitate to refer him to ANYONE looking to buy or sell a home because I know Jim will do everything he can to make you happy and get the job done. Thank you Jim Carlton for everything you did for us and will continue to do for your other clients!
