I made the decision to sell my condo/townhouse on 5/1/2020. I contacted Jim Gilbert and met with him 5/2/2020. We did a walkthrough to determine the best way to sell the house. Based on the condition of the home we decided on the "As Is" choice. The house went on the market 5/28/2020. Astonishing as it was to me, Jim had an offer on 6/1/2020. The only thing the buyer wanted done was to clean out all household goods. I had cleaned out a lot of items prior to getting the contract from the buyer. Jim provided help to me to get the remainder items cleared out prior to settlement 6/30/2020. Because Jim has been in the real estate business for a long time, he was able to use his contacts with companies that could do a quick turnaround to clear out. There were a few other issues that came up but we worked through them together. My experience with Jim Gilbert has been a success!! I would highly recommend him to other sellers/buyers based on my experience with him.
Jim is the #1 agent in Prince William County. I used him to buy and sell every one of my 12+ "Heart of the Home: Kitchens by Ana" flip projects.
Jim helped both our children's families sell and helped us rent out our house years ago when we all bought new homes close to each other the same subdivision. We've bought and sold many homes. With Jim's advice we made our house a Certified Pre-owned Home and got two offers in the first week. With Jim's aggressive help vetting the offers we switched from the too-good-to-be-true hustler's offer to a very solid military offer that went directly to closing with no surprises.
We have never seen an agent who had anywhere near as much experience and understanding of the entire process as you. The depth of transaction, negotiation, and marketing experience and knowledge demonstrated was overwhelming.
(1st time buyer) Jim was so helpful and efficient. He made our homebuying very pleasurable, and we will always thing of him as one of the family. Thank you so much for all your help during the homebuying process.
(Seller and buyer of a larger home a few years later) Jim got my townhouse sold quickly and got me into my beautiful big new home without any needless hassle.
Jim was very friendly and thorough in explaining all the details of selling a house. He made our house show beautifully on paper through the colorful brochures and booklets.
Best Characteristic: Persistence!
Runner Up: Availability - Jim and Deanna were always easy to reach.
Honorable Mention: Professionalism - Jim and Deanna were thorough and professional.
Last But Not Least: Last But Not Least: Warmth and friendliness abound.
Quick response whenever I had questions. Answered my questions in terms I understood. I did not need to be a real estate person myself.
Terrific service! It was very personal and trustworthy.
Thank you for being there whenever we needed you, as well as going the 'extra mile' when necessary to find us our home! (both times) Your vast experience in the real estate process is obvious.
They always returned phone calls - very important to a first time buyer. And they helped me even after the home was bought. When I wanted to sell they got it closed.
Very professional. Displayed a thorough knowledge of the realty business and of our community. The marketing of our home was fantastic.
We had four offers in the first two days on the market. The buyer we picked changed their closing date 5 times, but Jim took all necessary and needed steps to assist us and the buyer in closing the house so we could move on for our military relocation. We highly recommend you to all our friends and family when they decide to purchase or sell.
I've sold 4 homes with you and I'm working on buying my next one now.
Your are my hero, you know that.
Why would anyone not use you. I have dealt with hundreds of realtors in the DC area over the last 10 to 12 years and to be honest with you – you and my good friend ___ are the only two worth anything. From the standpoint of knowledge, honesty, responsiveness and pure professionalism you two are top notch. I wish folks would listen to me when I tell them that. They get stupid things into their heads or they hear from a friend or relative to use their person because they were fun to work with or were good to them and then they find out it wasn’t really the truth when something comes up in the transaction. It is frustrating Jim but I will keep preaching for you."
