Jim Carlton, REALTOR®/Broker

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 and having continued success as a realtor.

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 from one home to your next, from one friend of yours to another and hopefully through generations of your family, friends and coworkers.

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!!
