Just to let you know that you have gone above and beyond anyone's expectations.
Your genuine love for your job and people shows greatly through your work.
This has been the most stress free move because of you and for that I am eternally grateful.
Jon and I met Jim at an open house when we were just starting our house hunting journey. We did not have a realtor at that point and Jim was helpful in providing guidance on areas of Toronto in which we should look. After a bad experience with a previous realtor, we were hesitant in committing to any particular agent. Jim assisted us in those early stages without any pressure and we quickly realized he was the best person to represent us. As I would expect any house hunting journey in Toronto would be, it took us a few months just to find a house that we were ready to offer on. Jim was patient with us through the journey and helpful through the completion of the deal. What makes Jim a great realtor is the support he’s provided us in the years after the closing date. He has helped to keep us up-to-date with the activity around our new home and to provide us insight into the value of our largest investment. As well, the little gifts he has sent to our newborn son reveal caring nature of someone we now consider our friend. Jim Emilson is a great realtor and we have recommended him to friends and family.

I am not currently living in Canada. I am Canadian however. You could not believe the hurdles we had to go through to buy our property in Canada. Jim was there throughout.it would not have been possible without someone of his dedication and support. We will always be forever grateful. He is a caring and supportive individual who always went far beyond what I expected. If anyone doesn't trust him to provide support and find creative solutions they are making a big mistake. You cannot ask for more.
Jim is a truthful real estate guy who not just wants to sell and run for his money, but who loves what he is doing and is in the business for the long haul. He does not just but and sell for you - he builds lasting relationships that turn into friendships. Jim takes time to really understand your interests so that he can follow up with a range of options specially selected for you. Jim will go to all appointments with you and will give you his candid opinion, even if this opinion means no deal on the property for both of you. During the deal signing process, Jim will enquire the seller (in our case) on particulars of the contract and if he finds clauses that may be costly or inconvenient for you, he will let you know. He thus saved us quite a bit in closing costs. We have used Jim twice, will be using him more and highly recommend his services to our close friends.

I have known Jim for a few years now and he has proved invaluable in helping me in my purchase of two properties. The service Jim provided was fantastic. I was still in the UK at this point so Jim was available regardless of the timezone and he fit into my tight time scales when i was in Toronto looking for property. Jim was very patient as we were looking at properties and I was honing my requirements. I have recommended Jim and will continue to do so. Moreover I will use Jim myself for all my real estate needs in future.
I was impressed with his caring demeanour as well his ability to foresee what could be done in staging the home. We didn't have to wait wondering what was happening. Before we knew what was happening the house was sold and way above what we expected. It was a hectic but altogether pleasant experience.
Very confident and hard working with exceptional communication skills. Jim is great and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an agent ready to earn not only your trust but earn your confidence.
Great relator I could trust 100%, with his knowledge & experience during very important steps in my life. Very personable and always there for me. Couldn't ask for more!
From the beginning, I felt reassured and confident that Jim was a person of integrity whom I could trust to sell my condo. He explained everything to me, calmly and in detail, always making sure that I understood and agreed with everything. He suggested inexpensive ways to increase the value of the property and helped and guided me through the whole process. Considerate, knowledgeable, and patient, Jim was always ready to answer my questions, replying to calls and emails almost instantly and making the whole experience almost effortless. The result was that the condo sold in record time, surpassing my expectations.
Dear Jim, This thank-you has been a long time coming, but one very much deserved. Last November you took on selling the family home that had been owned for over 60 years. For my Mom this was a major decision, and one I supported her in from beginning to end. You guided her through each stage explaining the process and the reasons behind your recommendations. There was an extensive staging done by your team that made the house look magnificent. There was the open house weekend that you organized from which 14 offers were received. The next day, you orchestrated something that was simply amazing! 14 offers were presented in 1 hour and shortly after that the house was sold over asking!! My mom was so surprised and very happy. Thank-you for your understanding, your expert advice and professionalism. You are a skilled communicator as never once did we wonder what was going on or when. We honestly feel that without your skills this whole process would have been a nightmare. Instead it is an experience to be remembered. Thank you for everything you did for my Mom. It made my job of supporting her much easier. Sincerely, Michelle Armstrong
Jim consistently exceeded my expectations. He made selling my old place literally effortless, was extremely patient as I looked at countless units for sale, and helped negotiate great prices for both the purchase and sale. He has a depth of knowledge of both the market and the neighbourhood that I needed to negotiate such large transactions. Months later I am falling in love with Leslieville and my new home - thanks to Jim!
