Jim and his team helped me to sell my late mother's home in Waukesha. Everyone was kind, efficient and knew exactly what needed to be done to achieve a speedy sale. My whole family was very impressed with the entire process. These guys are awesome! Maureen

After many months of searching for our first home with another agent, we became frustrated because of the lack of dedication to our search. Just when we thought our search was coming to an end, we met the Geracie team. From the beginning, they were incredibly professional, dedicated and were looking out for our best interest. In only 48 hours, we met them for the first time, viewed a home, put in an offer and had it accepted. It was an incredible turn-around of exemplary service that previously was a daunting experience with the other agent. Our offer was competing with another attractive offer and ours was accepted only because of their advanced knowledge and negotiating expertise. Truly, we would not have been able to buy our now dream home without their quick guidance and seasoned skills. Being that you have a team working for you, everything goes much more smoothly and quickly than waiting on a single agent trying to handle all of the details and return your phone calls while handling other clients. They make you a priority and we highly recommend them to anyone we know looking for a home. They?re the best in the field! Less ... More

Jill and Jim were a fantastic team to work with to buy our home! They went above and beyond to help us navigate the market and then negotiate to get the best deal possible. After the sale, they continued to help us find reliable contractors and other services in the area. We definitely recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell property in the Milwaukee area.

Jim and Jill were fantastic to work with! We listed our condo for sale in New Berlin the second week of July and they were so helpful and gave us tips to help our home appear more spacious and what buyers are looking for. Jill took amazing pictures and really helped us transform our home into a model home. We received a full price offer on our condo in mid-September and within two days, Jim helped us find a new home of our dreams to purchase. Jim emailed us on a Saturday night around 9pm to let us know the offer on our new home was accepted. I don't know too many people who would be working on a Saturdday night, but truly appreciate their dedication. I can't say enough great things about Jim and Jill. Their team is amazing as well and also kept in contact with us via email and phone and always answered our questions, even if we were too embarassed to ask questions, they never made us feel as if we were dumb! Jessica (closing coordinator) rocks!! We closed on our condo in mid-October and closed on our new beautful home on Halloween. When we bought our condo 3 years ago, the closing was painful to sit through as we signed mounds of paperwork, but when we closed on our new home, it felt like a party. Jim and Jill made the process enjoyable, hugged us and gave us a bottle of champage. They also followed up with us about 2 weeks after we moved into the new home to make sure all was good. Amazing service and I would recommend them to anyone buying and selling a home. Great, professional, honest people to work with. Thanks again Jim and Jill for helping us sell our condo quickly and buying a new home quickly! Our family is enjoying the new house - just in time for the holidays! :) Less ... More

My husband and I really enjoyed working with Jim and his wife Jill. They are such down to earth, sweet people who really care about helping their clients. We could not have worked with a better couple through our 1st time home buying experience. Jill was very encouraging and reassuring when we went through an unfortunate experience with a lender. We were about to quit altogether and Jill told me, I know this is your house and we are going to get you both into this house. We found a new lender and within 3 weeks we were in our closing on our first home. At closing, both Jim and Jill greeted us, took pictures for us, hugged us and wished us well. Jill really put her heart into working with us, that she had shared some tears of joy with me once the closing was complete. I would 120% recommend Jim and Jill to anyone that's looking for excellent service from a couple that really cares about their clients. Thank you both for everything! We love our new home! Less ...

Jim has sold two houses for us. He knows what needs to be done to get a house sold. Selling the first house, we followed all his suggestions and the house sold within a week. Selling the second house, we hesitated to follow his suggestion to remove wallpaper because we didn't want to deal with that mess. After 75 showings, we finally took his advice, removed the wallpaper and the house sold within a few days. We should have listened to Jim from the start. He knows what he's doing. In addition, he is a very pleasant person who is highly energized. I doubt there's a better real estate agent out there. Less ... More

Jim Geracie was very professional & supportive in helping us sell our home. We were selling the home in the Fall as part of a divorce agreement. Jim helped us navigate a difficult selling season and got us a sale in a few months time. The preparation he recommended we put into getting the house ready really got our home a lot of traffic, which was helpful in getting a relatively quick sale. Jim also handled the precarious divorce situation with utmost professionalism and respect for both the parties involved. I have recommended Jim to others looking to sell their home and will continue to do so. Less ... More

The JIm Geracie Team sold two properties for me in the last 10 months. The first property was a condo in a falling market. They got me an acceptable offer in 5 days. The second was a nice ranch. Sold that one in 3 months with an offer of $2500 more than asking.

Jim did an awesome job listing/selling my land. I had this property listed with two other realtors that once I signed the contract for them to list, never heard back from them. Jim always kept me informed on when there once interest on the lot. Finally got an offer and great price that I was happy with. Will totally keep Jim involved with any other property sales/purchases that may come up in the future.

Jim is Very personable. Gets the job done. Our home had been on the market the previous year and after 40showings could not sell. After 1 day on the market our home went into a bidding war and sold within 24 hrs. So helpful with so many questions and knows exactly what he's talking about.

The Geracie team is well established in the Milwaukee area, which serves as a great advantage to the home buyer. They are very knowledgeable of the local market and processes, they have a lot of connections, it seems like everyone knows them, and they place alot of effort into easing the stresses of the home buying process and making their clients happy.

The Jim Geracie team was beyond amazing to work with. My wife and I had been searching for the perfect first home. Of course, the "perfect home" we ultimately found was a short sale. Jim and Jill Geracie worked tirelessly for nearly a year on this property and I'm happy to say we've finally closed on it! They are a dedicated team that has a passion for what they do. Their personalities are incredible and they bring great feedback/suggestions to each home showing you visit. I am beyond grateful for them and their persistence. The short sale process brought a rollercoaster of emotions with it but the Geracies kept us motivated to continue forward. Thank God we did! Our home is perfect and we wouldn't be where we are today without them. If you're looking for the perfect realtors, you've found them. Give them a call today, you won't regret your decision! Less ...

Jim and his team were very responsive to our requests and knowledgeble about every aspect of the home buying/selling process. They always kept us in the loop on how our purchase of a new home and sale of our existing condo were progressing and returned phone calls promptly. After interviewing a few other realtors, Jim stood out as being the most professional and most prepared.

Jim provided updates on the market conditions for nearly 7 months before we even decided to list our home. Upon doing so, we had multiple offers within 5 days of listing. Jim helped us get full asking price in what is still a difficult market for sellers. Jim was very helpful in providing names of contractors for some minor projects that needed to be completed before the sale as well. Jim was extremely personable, reliable and helpful. The Jim Geracie Team really helped the selling process move along smoothly. Less ... More

Thank you, Jim and Jill Geracie, for all your help in selling our home. Your professionalism, knowledge of the markets, and efficiency was very much appreciated. After unsuccessfully listing with another realtor for 6 months, you are the realtor that sold our home before the roses on the dining room table wilted (a signed offer within 3 days)! We have recommended you to several friends who are thinking of selling their home. Duane and Barb S

We recently used the Geracie team for the sale of our duplex and purchase of our new single family home in late 2012. I would have never expected the level of service that we received from them. We were in a very unique situation as we had a duplex that was not very common to the area as it was 20 years newer than almost all in the area and in our minds worth more than most due to age and updates. They sold this property and generated FIVE offers and got us exactly what we were looking for. This property sold in early fall 2012. We than used them to purchase our new single family home. We thought we knew what we were looking for and found out that we did not. We looked at a lot of homes per our request and none of them where what we were looking for. The Geracie team picked out three homes for us to look at and we loved all of them. We were in a tuff market due to the lack of homes for sale with it being late fall, but there knowledge and tireless efforts helped us find a home that was perfect for us. I would recommend the Geracie team to ANYONE looking for a home in the Milwaukee metro area. Less ... More

The Geracie team is a great group to work with when selling or buying a home. We truly appreciated their responsiveness, their ability to communicate available homes and process paperwork via email, and their never ending patience in quickly selling and finding us a new home. Jim helped us put a right price on our condo for a very quick sale in a tough market. Our home went up for sale the day after Thanksgiving and was sold two days after Christmas. We were totally surprised. Only to be further surprised by the need to have a new home and be moved out in just one month! We we started a very speedy search with Jill's help. Jill was a saint as we raced through everything the area had to offer. She never lost faith that our perfect home would find us, and it most definitely did. Then the next miracle happened, when we had an amazing turn around on the closing, which could only be made possible with a lot of attention to detail, a lot of follow up and some really quick paperwork by the Geracie team. When we are ready to move again, the Geracie's will be the first people we call! Less ... More

Jim is a consummate professional. He understands the market and prices properties accurately and fairly. He was instrumental in helping us move our property in a weak market when other properties sat for months. I have relied upon Jim since the early 90's for all of my real estate transactions. You need to meet Jim.

Jim Geracie and his team were fantastic throughout the entire process of selling our property! They quickly addressed any questions we had, helped us price the property correctly for the market/economic conditions, and helped provide clear instructions on the closing process and what to expect. It made our life easier throughout the process to know that the Geracies were available for any help. In addition, they went above & beyond to follow up with all appointments (ensuring we received feedback from anyone who scheduled a walk through and contacting anyone that had recently walked through when we had a price reduction). Overall we were completely satisfied with the Jim Geracie team and would highly recommend them for anyone who is looking for a Real Estate team. Less ... More

Jim and his team were an absolute pleasure to work with. We had a very difficult short sale to execute that included the fact that we had relocated out of state while the house was still up for sale. Each and every contact we had with Jim and his team was pleasant and professional. The most important part of the process to me was having a team that understood the importance of communication. Jim and his staff did an unbelievable job of keeping us in the loop at all times. Jim's understanding of the current market and where to price the home was an important part in getting our home to sell faster than the other half a dozen or so that went up at about the same time ours did in our subdivision. I can also assure you that Jim's understanding of the short sale process was invaluable as well. I am confident that he was honest and straightforward with us at every step in the process and that he did all he could to get us the best deal possible. I would highly recommend the Geracie Team for the sale of your home, especially if it is a more complex deal than your basic home sale. Less ... More

Jim sold our home in 2009 in Wauwatosa. After working with a number of realtors and failed results, Jim gave us realistic numbers and the honest reality of the market. He priced our house right and was able to sell our home very quickly, even in the midst of the market crashing. He's great to work with and has years of invaluable experience.

Without hesitation, I would recommend Jim and his team to anyone who is seeking an honest, reliable, upright, personable, and highly effective real estate professional. Jim helped me sell an extremely difficult-to-sell property for which another real estate agent was not able to generate any offers whatsoever. I tend to fret and worry a lot, and given my significantly disappointing experience with the other agent, I was highly skeptical about any agent?s ability to sell my property -- until I met Jim. Not only did Jim and his team hold my hand throughout the entire process, every member of Jim?s team, including Jim himself, eagerly and patiently answered all my questions. Jim and his team are commensurate professionals. I plan to ask Jim to help me with all of my future real estate transactions. Less ... More

I recently purchased my second home with the Jim Geracie team. They were so great to work with the first time I had no hesitation to go back to them again. I ended up putting an offer on a short sale home that had many obstacles and hurdles to overcome throughout the process. During the short sale process the team was very responsive and called at a moment?s notice as soon as new information arose. When we ran into complications with the seller/agent the Geracie team was very knowledgeable on the short sale process and made tactical approaches to overcome these obstacles. As the short sale began to progress the Geracie team kept me calm and reassured me we would eventually achieve the end result we set out for. If it wasn't for their knowledge and expertise in real estate I wouldn?t have found the house of my dreams and been able to purchase it. I highly recommend! Less ... More

Our home sat on the market through one 6-month cycle without a single offer. We then hired Jim Geracie of Realty Executives as our second agent. He was very respectful and able to get us to think outside our emotions. We made the minor changes to our home that he recommended, and we had an accepted offer in 3 days! Selling our home with him was such a pleasure, that I would highly recommend him to anyone!

I worked with the Garacie team, but predominantly with Jill. I purchased a foreclosure that was move-in ready. I essentially just required new locks and some light bulbs. Very key to us being able to close on the house at such a great price was the Geracie Team's ability to quickly move on securing an offer. The process that led us to finding the house was also key. Jill was very responsive and took great effort to help us understand what the current house inventory was like and price ranges. The result is that we found an amazing value of a house.

I had a very poor experience with the Geracie team. We relocated out of state, but still used the house while in town for business or visiting family. We told the Geracie team to give us 24 hours notice before showing the home. They failed to do this on several occasions. Three times we were in the house when the door opened and people walked right in. It was an embarrassing situation each time. After the first occasion, I asked them to, again, give us 24 hours notice before a showing. They did not. After the second occasion I told they had to give us 24 hours notice before a showing. They did not. I will never use, and do not recommend Jim Geracie. Less ... More
Response fromJim Geracie
Thank you for your review. I believe you have me confused with the agent you hired prior to me. When we took over this listing, as the second Realtor, it was a completely vacant home. This review does not add up to our experience in selling this this property. We ultimately Sold this property for 99.4% of asking price.
