Helped me buy home
We were moving from out of town, and Jim proved to be a great resource. He set up a whole afternoon of showing us around the area, and provided great local information. He also took some time to answer a lot of questions before we even came out to Golden, and before we were clients. When a house came available that we wanted to pursue he responded quickly and then, invaluably, took care of many things for us since we were still out of the area for 3 months. He kept an eye on the place for us, picked up our mail, coordinated all the inspections and let repair people into the house for us. I can't say enough good things about how far he went above and beyond for us. Plus he is just a likeable guy. Less ... More

The sale of my home was difficult due to a divorce. Jim was so patient, kind, and helpful during the whole crazy process. He never gave up and was very honest. I highly recommend Jim and would use him again for either selling or buying a home.

Helped me buy and sell homes
Jim helped us with every detail in the selling of three houses and purchasing one larger home. His narrated video tours were especially detailed to show prospective buyers all the important aspects of a home. He gave us good advice and contact numbers for any additional services that we needed, such as cleaning and/or repair work. When we had any questions, we were able to send Jim a text message or give him a call for an immediate response. He worked in our best interest to keep us informed in a timely manner and made the process of buying and selling homes go very smoothly. Less ... More

Jim has helped us purchase several properties including our first home and rental properties. During the process of purchasing our first home Jim was able to provide step by step instructions on the process and provide positives and negatives of each step and the potential implications to the contract and overall purchase price. Being a first time homebuyer this guidance was priceless and the goal of purchasing a home that met all of our requirements was met. During the process of purchasing and investment property for rental purposes Jim was able to set up a notification system that alerted us as soon as something we were interested in was listed on the MLS. Again Jim was able to provide a a wealth of knowledge on all positives and negatives in relation to the contract and different items to look for when purchasing a property you plan to rent compared to your primary residence. Jim was also able to help us reach out to professional management companies to give us a better idea of rental income potential as part of the purchasing process. Jim has a huge reliable network of individuals that can make the buying or selling process easier. Some of his references that we have used include; inspector, roofer, plumber, electrician, garage door repair, and handyman services to name a few. In our opinion Jim is one of the hardest working individuals in Golden. He makes himself available as close to 24/7 as humanly possible. His responsiveness to calls, texts, email and property showings is impressive and very much appreciated. Jim is a pleasure to work with and we look forward to more transactions with Jim in the future. We highly recommend Jim Smith for all your real estate needs! Less ... More

Jim was an awesome real estate agent and his extensive knowledge of real estate and the local market allowed me to sell my home months before I planned to put it on the market! He was in constant communication with me throughout the entire process of selling my home in Golden, and he continues to provide resources and support for additional real estate questions I have had regarding purchasing property in Grand County moving, etc. I would highly recommend Jim to anyone looking to buy or sell property!

Jim did a great job in showing our house, in knowing how to market it, in dealing professionally with all potential buyers, and, in helping close the deal with grace and ease. Jim is a true professional who knows Golden and the environs. We would gladly serve as a reference for Jim.

I listed my 2 bedroom condominium in Lakewood, CO with Jim Smith of Golden Real Estate around September 1, 2013. Jim did an excellent and very professional video presentation of the property and held an open house over Labor Day weekend. In less than 2 weeks, the condo was under contract to a cash buyer. The closing was held about 3 weeks after the listing date and I was satisfied with the price. Similar units in the same area were typically on the market 6-12 months and were selling for around 10 % less than mine. I had listed the property with Jim Smith Realty because they were the listing agent when I purchasd the condo in 2007. I was impressed at the time with their professionalism, knowledge of the local market, and willingness to make the extra effort to represent their clients. Less ... More

We were so impressed with Jim the day we signed with him. He has professional video gear with him. He had our video posted on You Tube the same day! Our listing was active the same day also! His signs are nice and ours was solar lit at night. Wow, what service! Jim has many connections and his marketing was extensive. He had our home sold In 3 weeks and our home was in a stable neighborhood where there were few sales, i.e a $500,000 home in a neighborhood of mostly mid-300 homes. He got us multiple offers and top dollar. His negotiation skills are impeccable,he is honest and when sticky problems arise with buyers, he is able to keep things moving and closes on time. We feel he is the best realtor we have ever had and we have sold many houses over the years. The use of his moving truck is a big bonus to his clients! Jim is easy going and very professional. He is not a high pressure, slick guy. He was worth every penny in commission and he gives a slight discounted commission. Less ... More

The house was put on the market on Monday and sold for cash on Tuesday. He had done a wonderful virtual tour of the house prior to it going on the market. That is most likely what sold it as the buyers bought it sight unseen. He gives many perks to his seller. He has a moving truck that is available for use instate. His handyman is available for $15.00 per hour. He provides boxes and packing material which is a great cost saver. He is available for questions at all times and a quick response is always given. He was chosen as our agent because we knew he would get the job done quickly. He is very active in the community so he is very visible and well known. If we were to sell a house again in that area we would use him as our agent. We would certainly recommend him to anyone who might ask about his service. Less ... More

Jim helped us sell our home in less then a week for more then the asking price. He went through all the offers and discussed the pros and cons of each. Jim also negotiated back up offer at the same price we sold for. Jim sold the listing himself so we where able to save on the commission. Jim helped to make the whole process go quickly and smoothly. I would recommend Jim to sell your home in the Jeffco area.

After interviewing three agents, we chose Jim Smith because of his expertise in our neighborhood, his honesty and his responsiveness. Jim answered our initial call while he was on vacation! He immediately called us when he returned home and always answered phone calls and e-mails right away. His communication style is straight forward. Jim charges a realtor fee that is very competitive with his peers. Another perk Jim offers, that saved us lots of money, is the free use of moving boxes and his moving truck. We hired two movers Jim works with and were moved in a day. It was incredible and very cost effective! As far as pricing our house, Jim was very detail oriented in analyzing comparables in the area, the economy, etc. He helped us choose a price we all felt good about and that met all our goals. As it turned out, it was perfect! Most importantly, our house sold in one day for full asking price. Jim had given us several suggestions of things to do to get the house ready to sell. He also gave us names of people who could do those things. Jim has an incredible network of contacts! I am pretty sure Jim also works with a home stager if the client is interested. We took Jim's advice, fixed the things he suggested and sold the house to the first buyer. Jim had also done a virtual tour and flier on the house that were incredible. They were very well done and showed the house off beautifully. In this process he made sure to gain our approval before publishing anything and happily took our input. Since our house sold so quickly, we then had to find a house to move into quickly. Jim took time the whole next week to take us to homes and help us find a great house! We were able to close on both houses the same day! Jim made the whole process easy and understandable. Some of our success was being in the right place at the right time, but without Jim's skill, the right place might not have sold (price too high, things needing to be fixed, etc) at the right time and for full price. Jim works in real estate with great integrity. Several times he said he would do XYZ because that was the right thing to do or because he wanted to be honest with someone. That is a rare characteristic in such a competitive field, and in business in general. We would highly recommend Jim - he knows what he is doing and is committed to his clients whole heartedly.

I am honored to write a positive review for Jim Smith. Jim and his team worked diligently to market and sell my parent's home. Jim held the house open far more than I would have had reason to expect. His marketing was insightful and extensive. Jim is extremely responsive and returns calls promptly. There were several times when we needed a local contractor or service person to perform repairs or maintenance. Jim has extensive contacts in the community. When we started looking for a realtor in Golden, I asked several friends and business contacts for recommendations. From those recommendations we chose to inverview two realtors. Jim clearly stood out and I have had the opportunity to thank my friends for their referral. Every buyer and seller have concerns that there will be last minute issues that stall or derail a closing. Jim is extremely thorough and the closing not only went smoothly, it was actually fun. Jim is the best and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone needing a professional realtor who really strives to get the job done and make it work for all parties. Less ... More
