Jim kept everything organized and streamlined. The digital signing of documents was very user friendly. We closed in 18 days which I thought was very good. If we ever move I will use Jim again.

Jim took his time to explain the expectations every step of the way. He called and followed up with me, and he ensured that I understood the requirements, all my options and he paperwork needed. He answered all my questions, some of them 2 or 3 times. He did a great job making sure I was comfortable the whole time.
