In today's market, strategic pricing is essential for a home sale to a qualified buyer. Jim did his homework and came prepared to have an in-depth discussion about the listing price, sales strategy, home configuration, and the open house schedule. Within a week of our home going on the market, we received three offers, the winning bid being a full-price offer.

Jim is an excellent real estate agent and I would definitely use him again to purchase a home. He patiently went to multiple homes with me over a period of months and continually updated my daily listings email as I narrowed down what I wanted. When I happened upon a property I wanted, a complicated foreclosure, he walked me through every step of the process and made sure I was comfortable and understood everything. I love my new home and credit Jim with making simple what could have been a very difficult purchase.
Jim and his team provide exceptional service. They demonstrate great care and attention to their clients and provide honest and valuable advice so that you can make informed decisions without pressure. I highly recommend them to my friends and colleagues.
I had a wonderful experience with Jim as my Realtor. I liked the fact that he checked in with me on a regular basis with updates. He was very prompt with all his dealings. Had my place rented in no time. He is honest and very pleasant to work with.
Jim Roy is professional and an all-around excellent realtor. When we were searching for our first home, Jim was always there when we needed him. Whether weekend or evening, he was extremely responsive to each of our inquiries and needs, taking the time to explain the details of the buying process. He listened to what we wanted and showed us numerous homes to fit our price, style and schedule in a variety of neighborhoods. His office has all the latest technology that helped us to zero in on the right home and to know exactly what we should offer. Also, Jim is extremely resourceful and knowledgeable on all things real estate. Even years after buying our home, we still go back to him with questions, and he always takes the time to help us. He does an excellent job of following up and keeping his customers informed on items like the latest happenings in the market and even tips for winterizing (if you so choose to receive them). We will be using him again when we buy our next home.
We worked with Jim Roy to sell the house where I grew up after my mom passed away. The house was not in incredibly great shape and Jim worked with us to prepare and stage the house. He did an excellent job coordinating with everyone who needed to do work on the house and get it ready to go on the market. Jim was familiar with all of the local contacts that we needed to get the work done which was a huge help since I was living out of town during the entire process. Jim had great attention to detail and always completed any possible job as quickly as possible, so as not to delay us. He was also aware and supportive of our goals. Since we were not living at the property during this process, it was a priority to get things done quickly, and we were very impressed that we only spent about two months working with Jim from the time we hired him, completed preparation, cleaning, staging, went on the market, to the final closing date. I would not hesitate to recommend Jim to any friend or neighbor.

A colleague recommended Jim Roy to us and working with him made our home buying and search process a pleasure. At the outset of our search we didn’t know which neighborhood we wanted to buy in or whether we wanted an apartment or a single family home. Jim set up searches with various criteria that helped us to get a sense of what was available within given neighborhoods and price ranges. He quickly earned the role of trusted advisor as he patiently showed us around many houses and discussed the potential of each. Our search went on for over a year as we became quite particular about what we wanted and were waiting for the right house to come up. Jim checked in with us at perfectly spaced intervals, and updated our search criteria to help us narrow in on what we wanted. He was never pushy and was always available at short notice to show us homes as they came up. When we found the right home Jim provided expert guidance and support throughout the negotiation and purchase process. As we purchased a fixer upper he even helped up out with continued post purchase advice. In every sense Jim went the extra mile and I have highly recommended him to friends and colleagues.
Jim is unquestionably the most knowledgeable, thorough and professional real estate agent in the Mid-Atlantic. We purchased and sold more than five properties through Jim. He provides a breadth of experience in more than just the purchasing and selling of property. He has a extensive knowledge of real estate trends, renovation costs and local code/permit policies. I would never consider purchasing another property, regardless of location, without consulting Jim Roy. Look no further, this is the agent for you!
We have worked with Jim Roy buying and selling 3 different properties now and we would not use anyone else. He vast knowledge of market trends, neighborhoods and his general house knowledge is matchless. He is the most dedicated, and motivated agent I have ever met. Real estate is not just his profession, it is his passion. His informative YouTube videos are just a glimpse into what Jim can offer his clients. Highly recommend!!!
I have bought and sold three homes in the area and I must say that Jim is the best agent that I ever used. He was very patient and showed me over 40 homes in the area and helped me to focus my search. He also has a great knowledge of the District, Maryland, and Virginia which enabled me to focus my search. His responsiveness was excellent and every time I requested to view a property, he was willing an able. I highly recommend Jim as a real estate agent!
Jim showed me around for almost 6 months. I found him to be extremely knowledgable, forthcoming and honest. We probably visited 40 or more properties in that time and he was as available in the begining as he was at the end. I would highly recommend him, and I have, to friends and co-workers.
We have worked with Jim Roy on several occasions over more than 15 years (both in the buying and selling of property and with our comings and goings to overseas work assignments) and his service, attention to the needs of his clients, professionalism and family feel nature can’t be beat in our opinion. Jim has even of late helped us track down a quality agent to work with us in an unrelated market (Florida) to his in the Washington metro area. With all this, our very positive and over time experiences, we highly recommend Jim Roy and his team. – Gary and Galina Vizzo and family
