I HIGHLY RECOMMEND JIM PAPPAS!! HE IS DEDICATED AND TRULY PASSIONATE ABOUT SELLING REAL ESTATE. HE SERVES HIS CLIENTS IN EVERY WAY BY RETURNING PHONE CALLS IMMEDIATELY AND GIVING FEEDBACK ON SHOWINGS OF YOUR PROPERTY. DURING THE 14 DAYS OUR HOUSE WAS LISTED WITH ON THE MLS WITH JIM, WE HAD 7 SHOWINGS AND A CONTRACT WITH AN OFFER FOR FULL PRICE. HE ALSO NETWORKS WITH REALTORS IN AND OUTSIDE OF HIS OFFICE. WE ARE VERY PLEASED WITH HIS PROFESSIONALISM AND THE RESULTS.

I highly recommend Jim for his expertise and effective marketing and negotiations. He helped us sell our home at the highest price in a quick and easy transaction. Then helped us find our dream home. Our home had been listed by another Realtor for several months, Once we hired Jim it was sold!

Jim sold my house in 2010 when the market was bad without a problem. I would recommend him to anyone selling or buying a home. He is without a doubt the best real estate agent I have had the experience of working with. 5 stars hands down. I will definitely return to Jim in the future for my real estate needs.

Helped me buy home
I worked with Jim for more than 6 months in finding our home. He was very patient to show as many listings as we requested and was very helpful in providing a lot of valuable information/suggestions that would enable us to decide about a property. We are thankful for his services and glad that we are now friends and occasionally meet to play Tennis at local clubs... I highly recommend Jim..

"Jim and his staff were an absolute delight to work with during our recent move. Jim has such a wonderful personality and a really deep understanding of his profession that he totally put us at ease from the beginning. He was a voice of calm during the negotiating process and continually helped keep our eyes on the big picture. From start to finish, Jim and his entire staff were a class act and we wholeheartedly recommend that anyone looking to purchase or sell a home give Jim Pappas a chance. There's a reason he's one of the top real estate agents in the area. Once you meet him, you'll understand why. Thank you Jim." -Ben and Lori Smith Less ... More

Helped me buy and sell homes
I've known Jim Pappas for 10+ years and tell everyone I know to call him to get their house sold. He sold our last two homes in less than 1 week, one in 2006 and one in 2013. On our last sell/buy, both our home buyers and new home seller were difficult to say the least, but Jim negotiated and it all worked out. I feel for his family because he seems to always be available to call you back so quickly, day or night, weekdays or weekends! Jim's most beneficial trait is he will tell you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear. Jim is successful to a point where he is not desperate to sell you just any house, or sell your house for just any amount. If you want truth and a trusted advisor for an agent, call Jim!!! Less ...

Jim is a take-no-prisoners kind of realtor. If you're shy, squeemish, and uncertain about selling your house, he's not for you. Selling a house is never easy or fun, but If you want to work with him to get your house sold quickly, he's your guy. He marketed our house like mad and it sold within five weeks of listing it in a down market. At closing some complications arose and he personally took care of them. Jim's a CLASS ACT!

Jim was most helpful, keeping me informed about the market and the property. He is personable, conscientious and caring, resourceful and dedicated to doing the best for his clients. He worked very hard to pull everything together, even though we had met only by phone. I greatly appreciate his ability to negotiate the sale of my house. I have absolutely no hesitation about recommending him and his dependable support staff. BJS

My wife and I decided to try to sell our home ourselves. After two months of frustration with open houses, two small price reductions and no offers, we contacted Jim. With his advise, we actually sold our house for $12,500.00 more than the lowest price we were offering while selling it ourselves. I have referred Jim to coworkers and friends with all price ranges of homes and they have all been happy with his services.

We really liked Jim from the first time we interviewed him to sell our house. He knows all of Lancaster COunty and was great at marketing to the out of town buyer. He sold our house quickly and helped us downsize into the perfect home.

He had my home marketed VERY weel as he said he would. My home sold without any issues. I give Jim Pappas a high recommendation

Thank you Jim Pappas for all that you have done for me!!!!

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
I had Jim Pappas as my agent on my home and I ended my contract due to his lack of concern with my property. He seems to care more about the higher end homes with the big commissions than the "average guy's" home. I had an open house (which he doesn't believe in) and he HIRED SOMEONE ELSE to sit in my house. He also had his assistant take photos (one photo). I have to admit, I was smitten with his savvy talk and his presentation but once that was over I never saw him again. I would never recommend this agent to anyone. Also he and his manager let me out of my contract without a care. I wonder if they would have done this so easily if my home were selling for $500,000. I rather think not. Shame on this Prudential office. Less ... More
Response fromJim Pappas
To ALL; I actually asked this seller to release me from the contract, I was actually the 3rd Realtor who had this listing. It did not work out with me, I have 100's of sellers or buyers who will be happy to give me a reference. So, please give me a call for an extensive list of the many buyers, I have pleased. Anywhere from $30,000 homes to 2M. Jim Pappas [contact info removed per GNP]

Jim Pappas is a tremendous buyer's agent. I've worked with numerous realtors in the past, to buy and sell homes, in the Lancaster area, Washington, DC, and NYC, and Jim shines far above any I've encountered. His knowledge of the local market is deep. After investing considerable time showing me properties, answering emails, culling listings, he ultimately advised me to wait to make a purchase until my circumstances become more predictable (may have to relocate out of the area due to employment.) This is strong testament to Jim's commitment to helping me make a good financial decision. When appropriate, he helped me cut through the intial excitement over a property to analyze the basic factors that make a house the best fit for my needs. At all times I felt like he put my interests first. He's very professional, easy to talk to, and extremely responsive. I can't recommend him enough. Less ... More
