James was extremely enthusiastic and diligent about helping me find a home. He listened to my needs and wants and did his best to find many properties for me to look at. In the end, we found the perfect home! The sale was a complicated process and James kept me 'in the loop' of what was happening on the seller's end every step of the way. It was a pleasure working with him and I would certainly recommend him!— BUYER
We worked with James to find a weekend home in the Rhinebeck, Red Hook, and Millbrook areas. The process of working with him was a pleasure from beginning to end. He is from this area, so he knows the region, the people, and the other brokers. He is extremely patient, and never tried to push us to a purchase decision instead, he helped us evaluate each property to get us to the correct answer. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend James to anyone searching for a property in this area.— BUYER | SELLER
