Jim was super helpful and thorough. He helped us navigate the crazy 2021 home market, all while we were living 2+ hours away. As first-time home buyers, we would not have felt comfortable putting an offer on a home in under 24 hours without his help. He walked us through everything we needed to know so that we were comfortable and confident in our decision.
Throughout the entire closing process, he was detailed and patient, while also maintaining the urgency to keep the momentum we needed to close on the house, on time. He was also a great advocate for us when we had to deal with administrative mistakes related to the close, outside of our control and his.
Selling a home is typically a very anxiety-inducing experience. To be honest, I dreaded the process. However, Jim's expertise and laid-back demeanor really redeemed the experience for me. Early on, he walked through my home with me and helped me create a manageable list of things I needed to do to prepare it for sale. He showed up on several occasions to check my progress, and more often than not he rolled up his sleeves and pitched in to help. He didn't have to do that, but he wanted to. His whole approach to the sale of my home was that he was my teammate. And he's got a whole group of other professionals supporting him - people I was able to reach out to for repairs, etc. His staging team and photographers were amazing. It really was a pleasure to entrust my home to Jim. Once we listed, he calmly managed showings and offers, and talked me through what was happening. One of the things I appreciated most was that he was able to help me focus on decisions I needed to make, while keeping the other details and negotiations in perspective. That whole part of the process can be overwhelming, but Jim kept it positive and I learned a lot. I would recommend Jim Carlton to any of my friends looking to sell a home.
Jim worked diligently with us for many months to find our perfect home! We are so grateful for his expertise! He treated us like friends or family.
Jim was my realtor when I was moving from Indiana to the PNW. I had a lot to get done for a work promotion during a typically not a good sales time of the Christmas season in 2018. Jim hand held me as home improvements, staging, and passing on offers that I did not want to accept. In the end, Jim and I as a partnership received the Sold sign! I would recommend Jim as he is a genuine good soul and has your back!
We moved here during the pandemic. We are from out of state and Jim went to each house we were interested in and did a Zoom video tour. He opened every drawer, cabinet, and door. It was as if we were there ourselves. He pointed out things that might not have been obvious on a Zoom video call, both good and bad. Because of that, we were very confident in making a purchase offer even without seeing the house in person. We were able to save money by not having to travel to Indianapolis to see several houses over 3 to 4 weeks. We are very happy with our home and will be in it for many years to come.
My wife and I have used Jim to buy our last 2 homes, and sell our first home. Jim made the processes easy and worked with us every step of the way to ensure we found the home WE were looking for. He selflessly took us to many homes, even when we were "just getting a feel for the market" before buying our second home. Jim always had our best interest in mind and worked for us to secure the best deal. He did such a great job on our sale, that the new owners said they plan to use him when they buy their next home! If you're looking for the best, honest, and courteous realtor in Indy, look no further - Jim is your guy.
I chose Jim as my realtor from a recommendation from my son, who is also a former happy client. Jim was easy to talk to and listened to my needs & wants. I never felt any pressure and Jim was very knowledgeable and provided me with prospects on each house we looked at. Even after my move, Jim provided me with valuable information & contacts in relocating to a new area. In fact, it has been almost 2 years since he found me my happy home and I still contact Jim for advice and just to talk! Jim is an excellent realtor who works hard for his clients.
Thank you so much, Jim!
Jim is a true professional. Our experience working with Jim was one of trusted advisor. He is knowledgeable about his craft and does a thorough job. We deeply appreciated how responsive Jim was to our emails, texts or phone calls, getting back to us promptly. Our most worthy testament to Jim is our confidence in recommending him to a friend or family member without hesitation. We will call upon Jim with any real estate venture in our future. Thank you, Jim!
Jim went above and beyond for us! In a very competitive market he was flexible with scheduling home tours to accommodate our busy schedules, and helped us put in offers on multiple homes before we had one accepted. We are so thankful that we were able to work with Jim to find the perfect home for our family. Thanks Jim!
Our family used Jim to relocate from Maryland to Fishers. From the moment we met, Jim paid attention to every detail and made sure when it came time for our whirlwind weekend house hunting trip that everything was perfect. He put up with tireless phone calls from Maryland in the weeks leading up to our trip. And, anytime I would mention a house that he didn’t have on our schedule, he would kindly point out that he had already looked at it and it was lacking in some of my criteria.
The most impressive moments of our time with Jim came when we went to see all of our possible homes. With four little boys in tow, Jim showed us 17 houses in two days. Through those long days, there was never so much as a heavy sigh or eyeroll from Jim. He kept our boys engaged and even taught them to help with the lock boxes. After a couple tireless days Jim helped us find our new home and we have remained friends with him ever since. We highly recommend Jim and we will trust him to help us find our next home when we are ready.
Good morning, Happy Monday!
I wanted to let you know, I just spoke with Ginnette, and they had a FABULOUS home finding experience this weekend.
They were able to put an offer in on a house that was accepted. She said that agent Jim Carlton was great. Even though they had their 4 small boys with them, he never missed a beat, never expressed any frustration with having the whole family along for showings. The offer process went very smoothly, as well.
Thank you for providing exceptional service to our client – it makes all the difference in the world!
Have a great day,

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!
We were very fortunate to find Jim Carlton to help us with our house and my wife and I highly recommend him to be your agent. We liked everything about our experience with Jim… he was very knowledgeable about the area, he kept us on schedule to efficiently see homes, and he was great with our four year old daughter. He took a lot of time getting to know us and what we wanted and after a few homes he basically could go in first and tell us if we would like it. It was great! The part I felt was unique from the last agent we used was it felt like Jim was buying the home for himself--the way he was so thorough with our home and how dealt with the homeowner made us feel great about the process…plus he negotiated some things for us and got us a great deal. Anyways, we are very picky on who we recommend, and we are already recommending Jim to our parents and friends.
Our experience with Jim was much more than expected. He searched for homes for us every day and gave us many choices after carefully listening to our priorities in a home. I have never had a realtor that sincerely helped us from the beginning to the end, and was always there to answer our questions by phone, text, email or in person. He did go the extra mile for us daily and still communicates with us via company newsletter on tips for the homeowner including how to care for your home. We received special links to home repair information sights, home furnishings and also a full home warranty. Jim is very resourceful and will guide you every step of the way! We appreciate him so very much and after the close he still calls to say hello. I highly recommend him!
Jim did a great job helping us to find and get a great house.I feel like not only did we get a great realtor but also a good friend. Anyone looking for a realtor that they can trust to work hard and also look out for their best interests could do no better than you. Thank you for all your hard work.
We were working with a realtor that didn’t exactly thrill us with our search for a home. One Sunday, we went on our own to an open house where Jim Carlton was hosting. Immediately we noticed how approachable and friendly he was. After we left, and making sure we had his business card, we decided to contact him about being our realtor. This was a decision we quickly found to be the right one. Jim took us exploring houses throughout Carmel and Westfield for what seemed like endless weekends and evenings. He was incredibly responsive throughout the entire process - new listings, follow-ups on offers made, and very strategic in finding us our dream home. In the end we looked at more houses than I can remember- Jim displayed extreme patience for us and was very helpful in the entire process. Jim was never pushy in trying to get us to act quickly. He understood this was a big investment and that finding exactly what we want was extremely important.
We were especially impressed with his knowledge of the various neighborhoods throughout the Carmel/Westfield area. He provided several recommendations on places to look at that he thought would meet our interests. And again, he clearly kept our well-being and investment in the forefront of his mind - not just looking to get a deal closed.
In the constantly changing real estate market, it is very helpful to have someone like Jim on your team. He helped guide us through the offer process as good ones came (and went) - relentless in his pursuit for what would make us happy.
The variety of listings and neighborhoods helped narrow down the definition of our dream home - and we are very happy with where we ended up!
We would definitely recommend Jim to anyone looking for a house and will refer anyone we know to him with complete confidence that he will not disappoint.
Just wanted to say thank you again, and what a pleasure it was meeting you! Your clients were so sweet, and I'm sure you were a huge help to them in the process.
I certainly hope we can work together again in the future. As an aside, you may be hearing from a Team Leader in our office. It's fairly routine, but I only recommend certain agents I work with to be contacted that are of high caliber, and whom I believe conduct themselves in an ethical manner with high integrity status.
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!!
