"Jim was the absolute best to work with! He is professional, personable, and returns your phone calls right away. He lets you know every step of the process before it occurs, which gives you a real sense of peace when making big decisions such as these. We bought our first home through Jim and hired him as our agent when it came time to sell. Would recommend him to everybody!"
-Bob Handley, Client
"We can't say enough good things about Jim and his team - Nate Riel, Robin Riel, Olivia O'Toole, and anyone else that I'm forgetting! They were awesome - always did their homework, were easy to talk with and didn't try to oversell us on gimmicky real-estate sale "programs", etc. Just hard-working and excellent at their jobs. My wife and I can EASILY recommend them to anyone. We sold our house with them and bought a new one as well. On both ends we were very happy with the service. HIGHLY recommended!"
-Jonathan Newton, Client
"When we first started house hunting, we had no clue what we were looking for. Jim showed us any house we asked to look at in a timely and professional manner. He knew exactly what to look for at each house and had a long list of contacts to consult with for projects. When we finally found a house, Jim and his staff were extremely helpful and knowledgable as we navigated the loads of necessary paperwork. I would recommend Jim and his staff without any reservations"
-Samantha Plourd, Client
"Jim Black and his team have masterfully walked me through the process of marketing my house, skillfully having considered pricing, staging and identifying the proper demographic to best engage potential buyers. He and his team members have conducted themselves as true professionals at every stage"
-Dominic Russomanno, Client
"Jim was excellent! We were first time, very young, home buyers and Jim always treated us with professionalism and respect. We felt extremely confident with him as our relator throughout the entire buying process. Our questions were always answered (even if he didn't know the answer at that time, he would find the answer and be sure to get it to us!). He always listened to our wants and needs in a new home and was always able to accommodate when searching for homes. Jim is very responsive, knowledge, easy to work with, professional, respectful and very trustworthy! 2 years later, if Nick and I have home questions we still contact Jim first. I am continually recommending Jim to all our friends and family in search of a new home; he is absolutely wonderful!"
-Amanda & Nick Kania, Client
"Jim was a treasure. I am recovering from cancer treatment and unable to do much. Jim made sure everything got tended to. He was able to get to sale within 4 months of listing. I would not hesitate to recommend him to any one."
-Marie Flint, Client
"Jim helped us find our house last year in the Pakachoag neighborhood in Auburn. We had a small (and therefore challenging) budget, and Jim showed us a variety of condos and small homes in Grafton, Oxford, Shrewsbury, and Auburn. He was patient, extremely helpful, and always on time! Thank you Jim!!!"
-Justin Launderville, Client
"Jim Black is amazing and an expert in his field! He is a true professional that is an advocate for you with every step in this process. He has an excellent team behind him with Olivia O'Toole and Robin. Communication was a great strength of theirs and we had total confidence in them all. We had many hurdles with the selling and purchase of our home and could not have gotten through this process without them. Jim has an expansive network of contacts should you want assistance with a home inspector, lawyer, fence company, radon mitigation system, electrician, etc."
-Katie Carmine, Client
"I was very pleased with all the time effort and patience Jim had wth me. I had no idea what I was doing while purchasing my first home. I feel he went above and beyond to make sure i fully understood everything about the process and made sure he found the perfect house for me. "
-Crystal Floyd, Client
"We began looking for a house as first time home buyers the beginning of 2013. Working with Jim along with another realtor Nate made the process so much easier. Jim on numerous occasions trudged through literally 2 feet of snow, down a long driveway multiple times for us to view this one in particular house. No matter the distance or the time of day Jim would meet us to show us whatever it was we wanted to see, and would also come up with some great options that fit what we were looking for. Within a few short months (because we were so picky) we found the perfect house, and Jim and Nate made sure we did everything we needed to, in the correct order so we could close and move in at the time we desired. I would definitely recommend Jim as a realtor, he made sure we were happy home buyers making our searching process a whole lot easier."
-Julie & Keith Remillard, Client
"AM Real Estate did an excellent job in letting us know what we needed to do to get our Condo ready to sell. At the same time, we gave a list of all the things we wanted and didn't want in a new home, and they put together quite a few for us to look at. Our Realtor specifically went above and beyond throughout the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new home; At one point he showed up with tools in hand to assist us in fixing one of the items on our list. I would highly recommend working with AM Real Estate if you're looking to sell your home or purchase a new one, especially if you want someone who cares, and will provide a personal touch."
-Joseph & Danielle Bartlett, Client
"Jim is very nice, knowledgeable and responsible. He helped us find two decent investment properties in a short period of time. Very easy to work with. Olivia as an executive assistant is very helpful too. Highly recommended to home buyers and investors."
-Hailun Li, Client
"I had been planning to sell my home for a couple of years, and the time came to pull the trigger. This was my first home, so I was not familiar with the process of selling a home. When I asked Jim if he would be my selling agent, I was confident that he would do a great job. Little did I know how much was involved in this process, from staging to inspections to marketing the property...I could go on with what I didn't know. Jim, Nate and Olivia were a great group to work with. They were prompt with responding to any questions that I had, patient with explaining parts of the process, and demonstrated a great knowledge of what other homes in my area were selling for. The folks buying my home made us scratch our heads at times, and Jim adjusted his tactics and remained professional throughout the process. Jim was able to get my home under agreement after about 30 days, which is impressive given that the average time in my area was 70-90 days. Best of all, A&M helped to negotiate a price "
-Eric Kujala, Worcester MA, Client
"As first time home buyers we were lost when it came to buying a house. Jim Black was invaluable during this process. He took the time to explain what steps we needed to take and made sure that we understood what was going on. Jim was very accessible which was great when we had questions after the office had closed. Knowing that we could contact Jim anytime and that he would be with us during the entire process made buying a house much less stressful than it could have been, especially when we ran into problems along the way. We would definitely recommend Jim to anyone who is looking for a new home. "
-Jen E. & Josh P. , Client
"Jim Black of Keller William Realty recently sold our home. During the process my family found him to be very courteous, reliable and expeditious in selling our home. He displayed a very positive demeanor and maintained professionalism during the entire process. Jim helped to alleviate a great deal of stress normally involved in the sale of a home. My family appreciated his willingness to help and continued availability to offer support or advice when needed. All of our requirements ran smoothly, Jim was indispensable as our agent and was a proven knowledgeable resource. We recommend Jim highly as a Real Estate Agent to anyone looking to sell or acquire a new home."
