Working with Jim was a great experience. Jim ensured that the whole process ran smooth. I was living out of town, but Jim was fantastic at handling so many of the details to make this a much easier transaction. I would highly recomend Jim as anyone's agent.

Jim is a pleasure to work with and very helpful in finding properties to buy and sell. In my opinion, his best quality is that he will tell you what you need to hear, not what he thinks you want to hear.

Jim listens to your needs and gets the job done. He responded to questions immediately, was always available and even provided a sympathetic ear and good advice for things that are not his responsibility. He knows Austin and handles a variety of property types. He had great suggestions on what to do and not do to prepare my home so I didn't spend unnecessary money. His knowledge of necessary details made a complex transaction seem easy. More than once, he told me he "would take care of that, don't worry." In my case, I was most interested in selling quickly. It was sold in days AND he got a higher price that I expected. Selling a home is challenging. With someone like Jim steering the process, it is a manageable challenge. Less ... More

Jim is a great realtor. He has actually helped us sell two homes. He was very patient and understanding. Both times he explained everything to us regarding market analysis and the best price to market our home. Our home was listed across all the popular websites . He had a professional company take the pictures and a virtual tour used for all the marketing websites. Our house showed great and we ended up selling our home in 2.5 days. We hope this is the last house we sell but if the need ever comes we call Jim again. Less ... More

It's rare that I write a review where I give five-star ratings across the board, but this is one of those exceptions - Jim Morelli is a rare real estate agent. I went into this transaction dreading the whole process, based largely on past experiences with other agents. I initially chose Jim based on his knowledge of the area where I wanted to sell, and after our first meeting I knew I'd made the right choice. Jim is efficient and professional, and was able to immediately make informed, educated suggestions about listing my home. We were on the market inside of a week, and I was floored when he called me with two offers the first day. He kept in touch with me throughout the entire negotiation process, and it wasn't long before we had a signed contract and were on our way. I was worried at first that I might have trouble selling my house, but I didn't know what an asset Jim would be in the process. I had no cause to worry. This is what it's supposed to be like, folks - a professional and helpful navigator through the entire real estate process. Less ... More

Jim was very attentive to our needs and responsive to our quick timeline to get our home sold. He is very experienced in the Austin real estate market and shared his opinion and expertise as we made various decisions, but was open to our suggestions and point of view as well. Our experience with selling our home was easier than expected and we have Jim to thank for that.

Jim counseled us wisely regarding the pricing of our home, considering the home?s negative and positive features - including its proximity to a parkway - and our need to sell the dwelling quickly due to personal circumstances. We were entirely pleased with the way he guided us through the initial pricing, the negotiation process, and in arriving at a final sales price. He continually inspired confidence, provided us with calming assurance and relieved our stress far more than we imagined we would receive. He ? and the entire North Remax Capital City office ? was professional, friendly and considerate. We would definitely recommend Jim as the ?go to? sales agent for residential home sales. Less ...

I sold my house fast and was able to move, Jim has great knowledge of the market and area.I lived in my home for seven years and saw the sings in the area with Jim's information and then the homes sold. the other ones on the market took some time, so when it was time for me to sale my home I went with what I saw to be a well knowledge agent called Jim and the process started fast and a month a half later the home was sold.

I had the pleasure of working with Jim Morelli recently to sell my house. I interviewed several agents and picked him based on feedback I got from prior clients (including my own sister). He was knowledgeable, very straight throughout the process, worked hard to make the sale happen and is a savvy businessman. I like that he answers the phone himself and gets back to you very quickly. If you are looking for someone who knows what they're doing with real estate, Jim is your man. Unlike many agents, he's been in the business for a long time now and has probably seen it all which made it possible for him to handle my difficult situation. I trust him and will use him again when I'm ready to buy. Less ... More

Jim knows what he is doing. My wife and I are very grateful for his professional, efficient and friendly service during the entire sales process. My home was on the market as a ?Short Sale? and also included two tax liens, HOA fees due, and a couple other marketing challenges! However, Jim did not show any hesitation or dismay during the process and attacked one challenge at a time, until the sale was finalized. In fact, the first agent that represented us had the house on the market for over three months and we saw very little interest during that time (we had to let her go). In contrast, Jim received three offers IN LESS THAN ONE WEEK, just because he KNOWS HOW TO MARKET A HOUSE! His negotiation skills are first class and he always responded to my emails and phone calls in a timely manner (the majority of the time he actually answered his cell phone). I enthusiastically recommend Jim as your next Real Estate Agent ? he will get the job done quickly, and he will do it RIGHT. Thank you Jim! Less ... More

Jim Morelli has helped my husband and me as a realtor for almost 5 years. Over the course of the house hunting, he showed us more than dozens homes, and navigated us to our dream home with years of experience and tremendous amount of patience. He's also educated us to become wise buyers and sellers. He taught us to become realistic when it was hard for us to be nothing but dreamers. If you want to buy a house or sell one, call Jim Morelli.

I would like to highly recommend Jim Morelli for your real estate needs!! Not only has he helped my husband and I sell our house in just a few days and for higher than the asking price, but also sold homes for my parents and my sister ALSO in just a matter of a few days. He answered all my questions, could always be reached, and was an absolute joy to work with! I would refer Jim to anyone looking for a quick sale on their home. Jim has many years of experience in his field and it shows in every way! Jim even went as far as to help us find a realtor in the new city we were moving to for a new home which to me is going above and beyond what we hired him for. Jim has many contacts and within the first 24 hours of listing my home had numerous showings and even a few offers! Jim was a dream to work with! We would recommend him to anyone and everyone!

Jim was introduced to my wife and I through a financial consultant to help with the sale of a property we were having trouble with. Jim has amazing knowledge and experience in short sales, and after an initial meeting we were confident he could help us. Jim did not disappoint. He is excellent in both his marketing tactics and his skills in negotiating with the Bank responsible for the mortgage. He created opportunity for all parties involved that was fair and in the end made the entire stressful situation less tense by keeping a cool head and delivering the facts in a proactive and timely manner. I would highly recommend Jim to ANYONE having to look into a short sale situation, but has limited understanding of how the process works. It's not a fun situation to find yourself in, but Jim understands the nuances of this business and can articulate and guide the situation so you can rest easy. He will fully represent his clients with an ethical baseline and cares more about helping you sell your property than the commission that may produce. And, he's a great guy! Less ... More

We worked with Jim Morelli 10 years ago and our experience was so positive we automatically used him this year when we needed to sell our existing home and buy a new one. Jim has a very business like approach that helps limit the stress inherent in buying or selling a home. He presents information in a clear manner, listens intently to your questions, and promptly responds to requests for information. Jim guides you through each step of the process, but is never pushy. Most importantly, Jim gets results. On the purchase side we worked with Kristina Weaver, of Jim's office. Kristina has a friendly professionalism and charm that we greatly appreciated while searching for our home. Buying a home involves managing a million details and Kristina was a great partner in helping us to anticipate issues and getting us answers to questions. It was pleasure working with both Jim and Kristina and and we have already recommended them to friends who need a realtor. Less ... More

We were struggling to find an agent who treated us and our relatively low-end property with respect, and who was able to respond quickly to emails and questions. After 3 bad experiences with other agents, we came across Jim's name on some sold listings in our neighborhood. He met with us promptly, got the house sale-ready as soon as we were ready, gave us solid, helpful advice, marketed aggressively, then sold our home 48 hours after the listing went up. He made everything run so smoothly, from first contact to closing! I cannot recommend Jim highly enough. Less ... More

I highly recommend Jim Morelli. From the moment we met he assessed what had to be done to our house and how to sell it. Jim was excellent in all areas. When we moved to closing and out of town, Jim took over and did not panic but was an excellent "captain" steering us toward selling our house in Northeast Austin. In addition, we feel we have made a friend who we would trust absolutely to get the job done and know how to "make shore." Billie Rensberger, Ph.D., and Taras Craig. Less ... More

Jim handled the short sale of my home. The foundation on my home was in bad shape making the home unsafe to live in. Because of this, the home value was appraised for several thousand dollars less than what was owed to the bank. He was very professional, knowledgeable, diligent while working with an extremely difficult loan company to negotiate the selling price and then get the sale done (we closed within a week after the final negotation was completed). I enjoyed working with Jim and would work with him again on any future real estate needs. I would also highly recommend him to anyone in a distressed home situation such as mine. Less ... More

Jim's advice helped us show our house in the very best way. We had our first showing after the house had been on the market for two hours, and we had our first offer (out of several) after 8 days on the market. We closed today! Jim was prompt about answering phone calls and emails, and took care of all kinds of things for us. He is a true professional and we would use him again in a heartbeat, and recommend him to others.

We really enjoyed working with Jim to find our new home. Because we weren't entirely certain about exactly what features we wanted in a house, or what we would be willing to give up, he took the time to show us a wide range of properties in many neighborhoods and he quickly understood what we were really looking for. The entire process was actually very fast as he was able to narrow down the search so we could focus on certain neighborhoods, features and price points. He was flexible with his time and very responsive to our emails and phone calls, and he made the entire process as painless as possible. I hope to stay in our new home for many years to come but I will be recommending Jim to anyone I know who may be in the market for a property. Less ... More

My husband and I were referred to Jim because of his knowledge and expertise of short-sales. We were in the middle of a divorce, our house was about to be foreclosed on, and we didn't know where to turn. We met with Jim on a Monday and had a contract on our house by Thursday - then 45 days later - we closed. Jim helped us get through a very stressful time in our lives and for that, I am eternally grateful.

We want to thank Jim Morelli for all that he has done for our family. Less than four months ago my husband and I had a difficult decision to make about our home. Jim was an expert on all levels. After we moved out he skillfully worked with BOA to get us approved for a short sale. Jim and his team knew just how to maneuver the innerworkings of a bank that has a reputation for making this process unbearable. Within on week of our home being on the market, we had an offer. Luckily we had a buyer who was willing to stick with us through the short sale process, and on October 14, 2011 the sale was final. Jim dealt with us in a very professional and compassionate way. Again, this was a difficult decision and a difficult position to be in, but we felt blessed to have found Jim Morelli and the ReMax team. We HIGHLY recommend him for any of your real estate needs, but most especially transactions dealing with difficult banks. Thank you again Jim for giving us the gift of peace of mind. Less ... More

I?m out-of-state and I?ve been working with Jim to find a home in Austin for about 7 months. Since we were looking from out-of-state, Jim would go to inspect the house for us and measure the dimensions. One time, he inspected a duplex for us and found that it was in a single family zone. He always went the extra mile and would check on a property. He also talked me out of a property because he didn?t think it was appropriate for us. When we decided to buy a house, he helped in getting the best price for the property and in the negotiations in having the seller of the house to pay for some of the closing costs. Jim promptly returned my phone calls and emails ? something other real estate brokers don?t always do. He was very patient when I would show interest in a property and then change my mind about the property. Jim is very professional and ethical and I would use him again. Less ... More

About 5 years ago, Jim listed my property for sale just as the real estate market was slowing and his marketing efforts allowed my home to be sold quickly at a great price. I was impressed by his ability in convincing me to not give in to unreasonable concessions requested by potential buyers. I was glad he had my best interest in mind. Recently, I had the opportunity to purchase a home again and there was no doubt I wanted Jim to be my agent. He explained each step of the real estate transaction as we went through it in layman?s terms. With Jim?s guidance, I did not feel I was overwhelmed in the complexity of a real estate purchase. In fact, I felt very confident in the whole process. Thanks to Jim, I am now a proud owner of a home again in Austin. Less ... More

My family relocated to Austin, TX from New Hartford NY in May of 2012. We had been trying to move since February of 2011, and the lack of ANY real estate market in our area caused this to be a long process. Jim stuck with us through the entire process (almost 18 months). He was fantastic at alerting us to the things that were similar to our experiences in the Northeastern US (where we had bought and sold homes before), and things that were unique to the Texas market. His website was a fantastic aid to us, since we were house hunting from a distance. On the two house hunting trips that we did fly down to Austin for, he was organised and we were able to see dozens of homes on each trip, and make effective use of our limited house hunting time. He was also great at reminding us of all of the little things that we needed to do, and with helping us arrange financing in the area. I would recommend Jim without hesitation, especially to anyone relocating to the Austin area from out of state. Less ... More
