    Jim was excellent to work with on sale of our condo. He communicated well through every step of the process and worked through closing while we were moving across country. He ensured we were always completely up to speed and were well informed throughout the process. I'd highly recommend Jim and would engage his expertise again in the future.

    Jim Streff comes highly recommended as a professional Realtor. He not only performed his job well, he went above and beyond for me with a situation involving my mortgage company. Jim is professional and very approachable. He is respectful and communicated well. My home was sold in a short period of time and I received full asking price. I have recommended Jim to family and friends who are planning to sell their homes in the future.

    Jim went above and beyond. Purchasing a home, especially your first home, can be stressful and overwhelming. Having a realtor that genuinely cares about their clients and works in their best interest is critical to a great buying experience. Jim did all of that and more. He knew exactly what I was looking for, showed me relevant places, and provided the guidance needed to make an offer that took into account the current market, unit features, local comps, and growth potential. Even after the closing, he continues to follow up on how things are going and is a great resource for all things a new homeowner would need to know. Jim is knowledgeable, patient, thorough, and overall great to work with. I'd recommend Jim to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

    From the first text and phone call, Jim was on top of everything. He listened to our wants and needs, perfectly orchestrated the purchase of the new home and sale of the old. He patiently answered the million questions we had and did a fantastic job setting the correct expectations. It is important to fully understand the reality of a home sale/purchase and while he was upfront, he did so in the most positive and professional way. This interaction had many moving parts and Jim was on top of every single one. He was able to immediately answer any question. We are most grateful, this has changed our lives and we now live in our dream home. Thank you Jim!!!

    Jim is an excellent broker; his service level & market knowledge went above & beyond all my expectations. He was extremely helpful through every step of the sale process, from listing my unit all the way through closing. A few things that I think set him apart is the advice he provides, his responsiveness, his transparency, and his ability to execute. I would recommend him to anyone looking to sell or buy.

    Jim did an outstanding job with the sale of my condo in Lincoln Park. He fully understood my objectives with my sale effort (i.e. realistic pricing expectations and quick sale timeline) and exceeded my expectations on all counts. As a real estate broker myself, some of the attributes I associate most closely with a successful broker (and subsequent successful transactions) is responsiveness and market knowledge. Jim knows the market cold and is one of the most responsive people I've ever worked with. You'll never be left in the dark working with Jim. I would highly recommend him for any real estate needs.

    James Streff was flawless in his execution of our home purchase from the day he showed us properties to the end at our closing for our dream home at a dream price. Sellers accepted our offer presented by James due to his negotiation skills. Very sure we would have spent more money without James on our side. If we were to text James a question about a property, location, price, etc. at 3am - we're confident we'd receive an immediate response. Regardless of being our broker, pretty sure James is one of the most reliable, patient, professional people we've ever met!

    Searching and purchasing my home was a great experience thanks to Jim Streff! I thought living out of state and searching for my home long distance would be extremely difficult, but Jim went above and beyond to take video walk throughs and FaceTime of properties. Really worked out well. I would recommend Jim because of his attention to detail, excellent communication and his attentiveness to everything we wanted in our home. He was respectful and friendly and never backed down from any request!

    I was so pleased with my experience with Jim Streff that I introduced him to a neighbor of mine who's going to be selling his condo at the end of the year. I know my neighbor was pleased to meet Jim, especially after hearing that my condo sold in such a short amount of time.

    From my initial phone call through closing, Jim was the absolute best to work with! He carefully listened to my needs and wants and set out to make it happen. My circumstances were different than most peoples, and he went above and beyond to get the information for me including reaching out to various people to ensure that the places would fit my needs before we even went to view the property. He was always available and answered all of my questions quickly with expert knowledge and professionalism. Jim went above and beyond what I ever expected anyone to do for me and made the entire process from start to finish the absolute best! I would highly recommend Jim to anyone for his promptness, attention to detail, and overall exceptional service.
