As a student fresh out of university, I needed to find a new home Halifax in order to get settled for my new job. It was a hectic time for me personally, as I was just 6 weeks from my start date. Enlisting James’s help was the best decision I made. He got to work immediately and was a true professional throughout the entire process. From providing listings, setting up visits to finalizing the documentation process. James made sure no detail was missed and made the transition as painless and smooth as possible. I would definitely contact James again and highly recommend him! - Hanna
We have been searching for a while for a property that best suited our growing family’s needs. When we found James, he sent us listings that were perfectly tailored to our needs. The process of finding a place was short and painless. When we found the property that we were interested in, James was extremely present and helpful in assisting us in viewing the property, answering any questions that we had and eventually closing on the property. We were amazed at how seamless the process went thanks to James’s professionalism and expertise. - Jack G.
We had the privilege of purchasing a property in Fall River recently with James Dwyer as our real estate agent . We would highly recommend James, as our experience working with him was extremely positive. He was always available to answer any questions and very accommodating to our needs. The purchase of our property was a pleasurable experience for us, and with James's help we were able to acquire it in a timely, hassle-free manner . He did a great job ! - Lanetta S
James has gone above and beyond his duties to help me with 2 recent purchases. I am so grateful for the service he provided to me and now I am the proud owner of spectacular ocean front property. Thank you so much James for everything! - Michele A.
James worked with us for four months. During that time he was kind and caring in all of our correspondence. It is rare to 'trust' anyone as much as we trusted James in the sale of our home. We have worked with several realtors in the past, but this was the first time we worked with someone with complete integrity and, who we felt, was honest in his approach and all communication. - Deante and Bruce
We really felt that you worked in our best interests. We thought that you were organized making all the appointments and kept us well informed throughout the process from viewing the properties to making an offer and followed up with our queries if you didn’t have the answer at your fingertips. Throughout the process, there was absolutely no pressure to buy. - Tanya and Jeff
We like James's professionalism and approach. He is well versed in our local market and I view him as one of the top in his industries for his ethics, concern and understanding of our situation. Your marketing abilities are unmatched. We believe that James was able to promote our home on many different forms of advertising and provided us with feedback throughout the process. We would recommend James for all of his attributes noted above - Crystal & Doug
James Dwyer was recommended to me by a friend. He proved to be efficient & knowledgeable about evaluating the property, having the property staged & communicating how much progress was being made. An offer was made 6 days after listing. He helped with negotiations until buyer & I were both in agreement. When my lawyer was unavailable, he gave me a list of potential attorneys. At every part of the sale James made me feel respected and understood. Thank you Mr. Dwyer, you are great at what you do. - Denise B
We interviewed two agents and chose James Dwyer because of his enthusiasm and his strategic plan to sell our home. He executed the plan exactly and the sale of our home took place within the first week. My Husband and I would be very confident in recommending James as an agent because of his professionalism in every stage of the sale. - Kim and Brian
As a first time homebuyer I couldn’t have asked for a better realtor! James was patient, super informative, and went above and beyond to ensure that I had the smoothest, best possible experience. His contacts for related processes along the way (home inspection, broker etc.) were also excellent and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend working with James! - Norma
James Dwyer represented us as we sold our home in Halifax and purchased a new one. The home we wanted to sell had some challenges that James worked hard to overcome with potential buyers (tough driveway) and we were able to sell our home much faster than we expected. There is so much to worry about when you buy or sell a home, it is nice to be able to count on your real estate agent to protect your interests and keep it all moving forward on schedule. James Dwyer is the ally you need in your corner. - Monica A.
We used James Dwyer to buy our first house and I felt like we really put him through the test. I must admit we changed our minds quite a bit and James was always patient and kind to me and my wife and found us the PERFECT property at the end of the day. Thanks James! - Tim and Brianna
James is one good dude. We weren’t sure if we should be buying when we did, but James made the process simple, even enjoyable, and accommodated us every step of the way. He’s the last of a breed of stand up, honest individuals and we plan to not use another realtor as long as we are here. - Mark W
I used James to buy our first house and I felt like we really put him through the test. I must admit we changed our minds quite a bit and James was always patient and kind to me and my wife and found us the PERFECT property at the end of the day. Thanks James!!! - Oscar Price
James Dwyer is a top notch agent. He has amazing integrity, insight, and honesty that helped us navigate selling our house and buying our new home. He stood by us, giving advice as we needed it and helped us through some issues we had with both houses. Without James I am sure we would not be in our wonderful new home that we love so much. I absolutely recommend him! There is not a better agent out there. - Carolyn Grodin
My family has nothing but love for James. Our home search took awhile, but he stuck with us and took us to house after house with our toddler in tow with a smile on his face. When we finally found our new home, his superior negotiation skills ensured that we got our home for a best possible price even with the stubborn sellers we were dealing with. We have already recommended him to personal friends and will do so again in the future. If you’re looking for a friendly, experienced real estate agent in Halifax, we highly recommend James. - Melanie Castro
I was very fortunate to have found James through this website when searching for my new home. He happened to be one of the featured realtors for the property I was looking at and once we spoke I knew he had my best interests in mind and we would be working together for a long time. The whole process went quick from the first outing and once we found the right house he went to work on getting the best deal. James is truly a blessing to anyone who has the opportunity to meet and work with him as he is nothing short of amazing. He has the utmost integrity, honesty and insightfulness and because of that, I was able to transition to the Halifax area with ease and comfort. Highly recommend to anyone looking for an outstanding agent! - Julie K.
James Dwyer is an incredible, hard working, and dedicated realtor. Do not hesitate to hire him to represent you in one of the most exciting, and emotional experiences of your life. He worked endlessly to sell our home and find us the perfect new home! He refused to allow us to settle or over pay for a property. He is honest and through the entire process I had no doubt that she had nothing but the best interest of our family in mind. He is well informed and dedicated to his work. In fact, he even kept in touch with us during his well deserved vacation. I could not imagine a more positive home selling/ buying experience. I can only hope for my friends and family to have such a pleasant real estate journey, therefore I look forward to recommending him to everyone I can. - R. Torres
James Dwyer is an excellent realtor. In my mind there are a few important differences between James, and the rest of the Realtors I have met. First, despite his busy schedule he always seems to have enough time to help you out with some small detail. Two, Jamers has an excellent phone call turn around time, if you don’t get him the first time, you will usually get a call back within an hour. Third, when you work with James, you work with James, he doesn’t pass you off to junior realtors. If you get his name then you get his experience. I think Jasmes is an excellent choice for first time buyers like me, with all the resources he brings to the table. Having said that, I know I will continue to use him down the road for second and third purchases because of his professionalism, his knowledge, and the aforementioned reasons. - Genevieve
It was a pleasure to work with James during the sale of our home, we found his approach to be professional and creative. He worked diligently to market our home in an effective manner. James is very knowledgeable of the market and knows how to appropriately analyze the market for the correct selling strategy and price. He regularly kept us updated and was willing to answer any questions or concerns we had as he guided us through the process. We were faced with a challenging market and James overcame the situation successfully. We highly recommend James to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. - Donna H.
As first-time home buyers we didn't even know how to find a Realtor, much less find a house that we could make feel like home. We started looking at the MLS listings on our own; James happened to be filling in for the Realtor involved in the sale of one of the properties we were considering. After a walk-by it was clear that this first place wasn't the house we were looking for, but we had been impressed with James's prompt response to our inquiry and his candid assessment of our needs and asked him to become our Realtor. We were particularly impressed that after a short interview James seemed to have a strong sense of what we were looking for. Within a day of meeting he had arranged for an electronic client account that would alert us to houses he felt might be suitable, even before they made it to MLS. One in particular caught our eye, and James got right on it to arrange a viewing. A few days later we were able to see the house. We fell in love with the house right away and were anxious that we would lose it if we didn't offer a high price (revealing our naivete as first-time buyers). James was terrific in helping us realistically assess the property's strengths and weaknesses and determine an appropriate initial offer. He also helped us understand the importance of occupancy date and conditions as part of the offer (we had been solely focused on the money), and helped facilitate us finding a reputable building inspection company. He spent the entire day helping us with the paperwork, even driving one of us to work for a meeting so we could have more time that day to do everything needed to make a solid offer to the sellers. The saying "start right, finish right" really was true for us. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend James as a Realtor, especially to other first-time home buyers. - Tim and Sarah
James made our home selling and buying experiences extremely positive. He was very knowledgeable about neighborhoods and home construction which helped tremendously in the process. James was always available based on our busy schedules and made the experience fun and relaxed. He was also very good at navigating potentially stressful situations. Thanks James for your expert help! - Anita and Josh
Prior to meeting James my husband and I had some very negative experiences with other agents as we shopped for a very specific home. James has been such a breath of fresh air. From the beginning James was patient, knowledgeable and maintained amazing communication straight through to the end of our very long journey. James couldn’t have been more supportive with us being unsure first time home buyers. It was comforting to know that our best interests were always more important to James then his commissions. This sort of honesty is almost impossible to find if you don’t have a realtor in your own family. This passionate agent sure earned his commission through countless hours and dedication. We would without a doubt highly recommend James to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. Thank you so much James for all of your help through this process, you are absolutely amazing at what you do! - Amanda
We hired James initially after our original agent failed to sell our home in an adequate amount of time. James was really thoughtful in helping us develop a strategy to reposition the marketing effort and in a relatively short time, produced a buyer who we closed with. We asked James to help us find a smaller home after we sold the family home. Again, James listened closely to what we were looking for and showed us a number of reasonable candidates. We finally chose the home that, ironically, was the first home he showed us. We think he's great and recommend him unconditionally - Jonathan and Cathy
I just wanted to thank you so much on behalf of my mother and I. We honestly appreciate everything you did and you had to deal with many difficult people in the process. If I know anyone interested in buying or selling we will most definitely recommend you. You are by far the best realtor we have ever encountered and you were so professional, gracious, meticulous and understanding. Wish you and your family all the best in the future. Say hi to your daughter for us and Merry Christmas! - Jessica C.
A genuine, responsive, and caring professional! These words would best describe James and my experience working with him as part of my military posting from an afar province to Halifax. James continually demonstrated a high standard of awareness of the challenges associated with my relocation program, my move schedule, my family needs, and cost considerations. His methodical approach from preparing for a house hunting trip to its smooth execution, provision of access to key data, responsiveness to changes in bookings / search criteria, and astute analysis during negotiation continually added value to my home purchase experience. I have come to know James as a genuinely caring professional who holds to himself to a high standard, as well as other home services vendors that he would dare offer for my consideration. I was able to get access to an excellent home inspector (thanks Shawn!), and I would not hesitate to seek other recommendations from James. I very much appreciated his post-purchase follow-through, handling of issues, and taking the time to check in on my family and I once we arrived in our new home. Further testaments to his genuine care that sets him apart were his generous house warming gift and small gestures to help save my busy family some time. James is among the best Realtors with whom I have worked over the course of my 20+ year career and resultant relocations. I highly recommend him. - Greg and Holly
From our first meeting, I knew James Dwyer was who I wanted to sell with. The agent came so well prepared, and had an incredible amount of information not only about the local market, but where my property sat within that market. Adding to this information was the transparent, no fluff delivery, and a property pricing strategy that made sense and I could understand. I was left with no reservations about listing with James, and an incredible feeling of trust and a belief that I was in good hands, and that he would get the best price for my property. The property was only on the market for 13 days, and it sold above my expected price and the expected market price. The practicality of selling with James Dwyer continued in the same easy manner. Communication from both the agent and the office staff was professional, timely and courteous. They were always more than happy to work around me, and I was always kept in the loop in regard to what was going on with potential buyers. Right up until the day I moved out James was keeping in touch and happy to help out where he could. While I am hoping to not have to move again for a long time, it will be James Dwyer that I head to when I do want to sell. - Robert Gayah
We met James in February 2019 for the first time. We were referred to him by a friend who has bought a house through James. As a first time home buyer, we were very nervous and thought that we would be pushed into buying just a house. James has a great knowledge and experience in the real estate world. He is an excellent observer and great attention to details when viewing a house. He has a lot of patience. He will advise but lets you decide what you think is best for you. He is very enthusiastic and a positive person. He would often say "this is a house, we will find you a HOME where you will happily raise your children". You are not just a client with James. He really cares about you. Thank you James for everything! - Raymond S.
James was professional and approachable he knew what we were looking for and he found it. In a very competitive market he was able to notify us of available properties fast and we able to get the perfect home. I would highly recommend James Dwyer to anyone that is looking to buy real estate in Halifax - Jon Chilcott
Recently, we had the privilege of working with James on the purchase of our new town home. We had been out of the market for a while and ready to dive back in. He held our hands throughout the process while still giving us the knowledge to make an educated decision on our own. We were so grateful for his kindness, humor and attention to detail. James is definitely our realtor of choice! - Barbara Skalski
Beginning with our initial inquiry James was very responsive, stayed in close touch with us and answered all of our ongoing questions in a timely manner. His personable approach made it very easy to work with him and his extensive knowledge of the area was very helpful. His overall professionalism in dealing with details and providing important info in a timely manner added to a very pleasant experience. Overall, James made our transition to a new home in a new area very pleasant and we would not hesitate to recommend him. - Nathan Coyle
James is extremely knowledgeable of the market. His excellent reputation with other real estate agents was key to a smooth transaction. His professionalism and his goal to do his best has always impressed us. Aside from being extremely knowledgeable, James was always sensitive to our needs/opinions and a step ahead of the game. It seemed like he knew in advance what questions my wife and I were going to ask. His Marketing team prepared amazing hard copy and electronic advertising materials. James was honest and fair in assessment when we bought and sold our home. - The McNally's
We feel very lucky to have selected James Dwyer to work with as our representative to purchase our home. James is a very dedicated person who provides us tremendous supports including the instant market information, neighborhood recommendation, house viewing and inspection, and document preparation etc. It does help us to better know about the local housing market and finally win the offer after several rounds of bidding. We really appreciate all the services provided by James Dwyer - Cory and Debbie
We decided to relocate to Halifax because of its employment opportunities, closer to the great outdoors, and diverse neighbourhoods. The active real estate market, and our lack of familiarity with Halifax, made it critical for us to have a knowledgeable, local real estate agent working for us. We reached out to James and were immediately impressed by his knowledge and personal interest. James knows the Halifax market intimately and helped us identify the neighbourhoods that would suit our needs and lifestyle. As we viewed various properties, he both shared insightful and honest comments, helping us narrow down our search until we found the right house and neighbourhood. We would recommend James without hesitation! He is genuinely invested in helping clients find the right home in the right neighbourhood and he does it with integrity. - Lisa C
If you’re looking for an extraordinary real estate agent, call James Dwyer. James is very knowledgeable about both the market and the human side of buying and selling real estate. He’s dedicated, detail-oriented, and extremely hard-working. If you want an agent who is warm and understanding, call James – you’ll be in the good hands of someone who really cares about your happiness.

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with James to find the perfect home for us. James was tireless in his efforts and found exactly what we were looking for. Throughout the entire process, we always felt that James had our best interests at heart. He was friendly, honest and professional and we are thrilled with our new home. We highly recommend James to any prospective buyers or sellers who are looking for a great realtor. You won’t be disappointed! - Jane and Rob
James is an amazing and reliable real estate agent. Right from the first meeting he was attentive to what I wanted and provided me with so much information. When he says call anytime or if you need anything he truly means it. I messaged him on Labour Day of all days knowing that he had dinner plans with his family and instead of replying the next day or after dinner he replied within seconds of my message. I cannot say enough good things about him. He talked to my boys who weren’t very happy with the move and reassured them they’d be ok and made them smile. You will not regret choosing James Dwyer to represent you. - Raul Lofton
James very patiently led us to the purchase of our home. We took a long time to purchase a home and James never pressured us or made us feel like we were wasting his time. Ultimately we ended up with the right house at the right price. James also sold our house, he made suggestions for staging and tried several marketing ideas over and above what other agents provide. Our house sold in 6 weeks while others on our street took several months. - Lydia
My mother fell ill and it became my responsibility to sell her condo. I saw a sold sign with James's name out in front of our building. I decided to give him a call and set up a meeting. This was the best possible move I made. James was professional, knowledgeable and courteous. He was able to find a buyer in a very difficult market. We will use James Dwyer for all of our future realty needs. I highly recommend using James's expertise for your realty needs. - Craig Clarke
I canvassed the Internet and found James and 2 other agents. Then I chose James because of his marketing approach and quick response to all my questions. He is very professional, efficient, knowledgeable and always available. He listed my property at the right price, and sold it at the right price and fast! He caught and communicated the "spirit" of the property with his smart video of the home and made the transition to selling a beloved home easier with his communications. He has since became a friend and trusted ally. - Dondrea
When my husband and I were looking to purchase a new home we only knew what we did not want in a real estate agent. When we got to know James as our agent he truly exceeded our expectations. James is an active listener and was able to identify what our needs were in a new home. James maintained opened communication, which enabled us to feel confident in her excellent qualities as our agent. As first time buyers, James provided us with information about selling/purchasing a home. In our opinion James is the best real estate agent around and the only one you should see. - Maureen and Pat
James was very upfront about the process of selling our home and explained everything, so every step was easy to understand. This was such a positive experience. Our house sold so quickly!!! (6 days) The right price, the proper advertising, and a GREAT person. We have no problem referring James to any of our family and friends (and have already done so!) Thanks, James! - Heather
James was amazing to work with! He was knowledgeable, professional, and an amazing support when my partner and I were purchasing our first home. He patiently walked us through the process and made sure we were prepared and confident each step of the way. We would absolutely recommend anyone work with him, and look forward to working with him again in the future ourselves - Sean
James helped my wife and I find our home in Halifax. We weren’t from Halifax, so we weren’t sure where to start looking for a nice home. Not only did James help us find the perfect home for us, he has since continued to give us information about local services and people who can help us finish our basement. He also recommends different ways to improve our home and what things to look for in a repair person/builder. James goes out of his way to make sure his clients are happy and never hesitates to lend a hand! We would without a doubt recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. - Steve Vincent
James Dwyer by far surpassed our expectations of realtors. He was very knowledgeable and knew what we needed in a home before we even did. He worked around and catered to our somewhat crazy schedule and always responded to us in a timely manner. He kept this experience fun and exciting. We really enjoyed his sense of humor, honesty, and professionalism! We most definitely would recommend them to anyone who is looking to sell their home or purchase one. - Sean and Megan
I want to thank James for helping us find our home here in Halifax. He is highly professional, very talented and organized in showing homes within our time schedules. As we were moving from another province this was an important consideration. James helped us with our transition to Ontario, found us a wonderful home, was always available, generous with his time and made a difficult task easy with humor and infinite patience. We highly recommend James to all our friends. - Jon
Calling James Dwyer to help sell our home turned out to be the best decision of our transition. We knew we were getting a great person on our side, but he surpassed our expectations. Upon his first visit, we already had a solid plan to sell our home. He left us with a list of tasks to focus upon and prepare our home to show. This is where James's connections started to add value. He recommended an excellent mortgage broker to assist in purchasing of our new home, connected us with top-notch electricians and plumbers, and sent us to an amazing crew of movers that made for a speedy transition and much stress reduction. To boot, he brought in a stager to help us highlight the beauty of our home. And with our staging plan in place, he even rolled up his sleeves and assisted in prepping the house for market. James knows Halifax. His selling price analysis was a precise exercise in which his knowledge of the neighborhood provided insight into the our market. This resulted in a final sale very close to our asking price and well above our original expectations. In addition, he knew how to market our home. The pictures on our listing made us almost regret selling the place! It blew us away when James called just four days after hitting the market with a great offer on our house. We accepted and James was there to advise us every step of the way all the way up to closing. We put our trust in James and it paid off. - Loni
My wife and I worked with James to purchase our first home and really can’t say enough good things about him! He is knowledgeable, approachable, personable, endlessly patient, and incredibly generous with his time (including mornings, evenings, and weekends over the course of several months). He answered every question and explained every form and every part of the process clearly and thoroughly. Buying a home in this market is challenging, but working with James made it as painless and straightforward as possible. We highly recommend James. - Jim
James was great. He helped me downsize and find a condo in Halifax. He moved quickly and i got my offer accepted the day I toured and luckily got the place. I really thank him for being so quick and responsive! - Christine
We listed our home in Fall River with James after trying a few times with other agents, we are happy to say that we sold the home in less then a month and couldn't be more happier. James and his team are very professional and really know their stuff! from staging to his 3D imaging of the home it was really a step above what we have seen. We highly recommend James. - Colleen
James came highly recommended from one of my friends. He really cares about his clients and made me feel comfortable about the whole process. He found me the perfect home after we searched for so long and i can proudly say the wait was worth it. James really had my back from day one and thats what really mattered to me the most. - Krista H
Meeting James and learning about what he does when it comes to marketing a home is truly inspiring. His use knowledge and use of digital marketing is above and beyond anyone else that we have used in the past. We had our home listed for a year and half and didn't receive the amount of viewings that we did in our first week of listing our home. Happy to say we sold the home in the first week and are very satisfied with the end result. Thank you James! - Lou
James made buying our first home a hell of a lot less confusing. He’s very straight forward and doesn’t try to skirt past any negatives of the property in order to get you to buy. He’s down to earth, easy to get along with and he genuinely wants you to be happy with your home, he’s not just looking to make quick cash. I have recommended him to multiple friends and I will definitely be using him When our family outgrows this home and to buy a bigger one! - Roben Carpenter
He's been our guide through our 10 months on the market. Helped us advertise our house professionally, offered honest advice and ultimately kept us on track until our house sold. He's different than other Realtors I have dealt with. He has a unique approach to selling through social media, and puts a lot of effort into a very polished product. Would, and will, highly recommend James for buying and selling any real estate! - Ryan Sweeney
I'll start off with saying thank you James! You've been there right from the start with me whether it was answering all my questions.. taking the time out of your busy day to run keys around and unlock doors for me.. needless to say your approach to realty is one I've have never witnessed before. Dedicated to keeping your clients informed and satisfied goes along way in this business and I can seriously say this process was a breeze with you. I highly recommend James to anyone seeking my same experience. Thanks again my friend! - Jeff Cook
Our home was listed for over a year with plenty of showings but no offers. A friend recommended I contact James and we had a long meeting where James took the time to explain to us the current market conditions, what he saw as the right strategy to get our home sold. It was apparent that James was both very knowledgeable and passionate at about what he does. We followed his advice and within 6 weeks we had a sold sign on our front lawn. There aren't enough stars in this rating system to give James what he deserves, he has our highest recommendation. You won't be disappointed if you choose James to get your home sold. - Roger Daigle
James is one of the most hardworking and dedicated persons that I have ever met. He provides his clients with all the tools they need to make an informed decision when buying or selling their home. I make a point of asking all James' clients what they thought of him and the response is always, AWESOME! Keep up the good work James! - Suzanne Roberts
I wish I could give more than 5 stars as 5 doesn't quite express how much we loved working with James. As a young couple searching for our first and forever home we couldn't have found anyone better to help us with the search than James. His knowledge and experience shone through and put our minds at ease about making this life changing purchase. He made himself available for us at any time and made us feel comfortable asking as many questions as we had. We have now been in our home for 1 month and still have absolutely no doubts that we found the right home for us, and a lot of that was having complete confidence in the information that James and his team brought to us before we signed. If you are looking for a knowledgeable agent, who goes above and beyond and truly cares about his clients look no further than James Dwyer. - Natasha Brooks
My husband were very happy and loved working with James. He was knowledgeable, dependable, professional and provided us with all the right information in the sale of our home. Great feedback and tips on getting the property listed, he acted quickly and was always available which all led to our home selling in just under 3 weeks. Thank you James for a job well SOLD and we would highly recommend James to others! - Patty Howard
We interviewed four realtors when we were ready to list our home. James was our top choice for many reasons. With a great understanding of an ever-changing market, he created a tailored marketing approach for us. His understanding of how to strategically use social media channels to bring in the right buyer was undoubtedly a key factor in helping to sell our home. The walk-through video generated a lot of interest and was another stand-out feature of his approach. Once it came time for negotiations, James remained professional and always had our best interests in mind. We will gladly recommend James to anyone we know selling a home. - Tara Haley O'Brien

My wife and I bought our first house in the summer of 2015. We had no idea where to start or what to do. On a recommendation from a friend we contacted James. We were so worried that we would miss something or make a bad choice but with James there to help us through we had the best possible experience. He was dedicated, professional, and personable. I would recommend James VERY strongly to anyone. Having him at your side will take much of the stress out of such a big life event. You can't ask for a better quarterback to get you your dream house! - Mark Davidson

I certainly recommend James to anyone looking for the best of the best! - Terri Noye

Keep up the good work! - Rizwan Mustafa

My wife and I bought our first house with James. We had no idea where to start or what to do. On a recommendation from a friend we contacted James. We were so worried that we would miss something or make a bad choice but with James there to help us through we had the best possible experience. He was dedicated, professional, and personable. I would recommend James VERY strongly to anyone. Having him at your side will take much of the stress out of such a big life event. You can't ask for a better quarterback to get you your dream house! - Jeremy Noyle
An amazing realtor- we highly recommend James. He is professional, very responsive, patient, knowledgeable and has a network of resources that are top notch. He goes to bat for clients and protects your interests. He is down to earth and just overall, really easy to work with. - Carrie Holton
We are really impressed with James. He is honest with us and has been a very dependable advocate in all things related to our selling/buying process. I have confidence in him because he has answers for our questions and isn't afraid to go into detail when we ask. He also has people he trusts that he goes to when he isn't 100% sure. This is so much better than someone who magically has all the answers. His passion for the business is clear and he helped us get excited about the process. Selling your home and buying a new one is a lot of work but he was able to make sure we were always focused on the right things so we never felt like we were wasting our time. - Scott MaCDONALD
James of Press Realty assisted our family in selling our parents' house and I have to say, I was impressed. Having dealt with many real estate agents in the past over various properties personally and professionally I can honestly say that James goes beyond what I have seen as the "norm" when it comes to his efforts on marketing, staying in touch with the seller with constant updates (which is an important factor to me!) as well as going out of his way to resolve issues that come up either by solving them himself or accessing a network of specialists, all being professionals in their own fields. For anybody looking for a good, hardworking representative that will go all out and above and beyond to sell your house, James struck that chord and I would recommend his services. - Jeff Hogg
James assisted us in buying our first home. We had a ton of questions and concerns and he pleasantly addressed and answered all of them in great detail. He is very dedicated and hard working and will work until he finds the right house for you. I always felt very comfortable and taken care of with James representing us as home buyers. He stayed with us throughout the entire process and ensured that we understood everything. Buying our first home was extremely easy with James. He organized everything for us and provided great people to assist in the areas that he could not, for example recommending a home inspector and lawyer. I would recommend anyone to James in a heartbeat! - Michelle King
James assisted my husband and I in the purchasing of our first home. We were unfamiliar with the process and James's guidance throughout was invaluable. We had an initial meeting with him where he went over the buying process, including timelines, provincial regulations of the housing market, and Halifax real estate in general. Once we gave him our criteria, James set to work, sending us listings that matched our budget and wants. He was always flexible in meeting us and showing us houses and encouraged us to go to see many different kinds of houses to become educated in Halifax real estate. Once we found a house we wanted to put an offer on, James worked diligently and we managed to get our house for OVER $25K UNDER ASKING!!! He was always available for us and is timely in his response. His team at Press Realty helped us through the entire process and all were wonderful to work with. The number one reason why we would recommend James is because he is HONEST. He truly represented us to the best of his abilities and and kept our best interest as his top priority. He is genuine, sincere, dedicated, and his no-BS approach to helping us buy our home made the whole experience very pleasant. I would not hesitate to recommend him to ANYONE looking to purchase or sell a home. James is the most knowledgeable, friendly, and hard-working real estate agent and we will definitely be using him in our future real estate endeavors. - Jerad Furze
My husband and I purchased our 7th home recently and James' help was exceptional - the best realtor service we have ever had!!!! His professionalism, knowledge of the neighbourhoods in the Halifax/Dartmouth area, and tough negotiator when needed, got us our dream home! His dedication was beyond our expectations. He was always available by phone, text, or email. I would recommend James to anyone looking to buy or sell their home - he will provide you with the superior service you deserve. - Caron Taylor
I found James through a friend of mine. I was re-listing my home as I had no success with my original listing and I really needed someone that could sell. I was also already moved away to another city so I desperately needed someone that I could trust that was willing to take time to go to my property and make sure it is in good shape. After chatting few times with James I felt he sounded promising and I let him know the kind of realtor I was looking for and what my expectation was, he gladly accepted my requests. Sure enough he kept his promise and frequently checked my property to ensure it is in its best shape for viewing, he followed up with buyer after every viewing and gave me update. Within three months he was able to secure a buyer for me, unfortunately the inspector found a problem with my house, James went above and beyond and referred a contractor to me that would charge less than if I went with someone else and we got the problem fixed and in the end it was win win for me and the buyer. I strongly recommend James to anyone that is looking for a realtor, he is really personally, approachable, most importantly he keep his promises, and he will keep you informed. This was a very important factor when i was looking for a good realtor. - Arlene Lawrence
James is a realistic, passionate and experienced real estate professional. He goes above and beyond for his clients while making you feel as if you're the only one who has his undivided attention. In helping to sell my parents home, his communication was excellent, guiding us every step of the way, through the most unexpected circumstances. He turned what could have been a negative experience into a positive one. For that reason alone I could never thank him enough. Without hesitation, my husband and I would highly recommend James for all of your real estate needs. - Susanne Baker
James Dwyer is a really professional down-to-earth realtor. My wife and I were searching for a home in HRM from another province and as we choose our favorites, James would visit them and give us the pros and cons of each (this really helped in a world where every home picture was photo-shopped to look amazing). When we arrived in HRM to view homes and ultimately to choose one, James highlighting important aspects of homes and the homes real value. This was our first home and we had no real clue on the process, but James made us feel comfortable and well-informed and promptly answered any of our questions. I had recommended James to a friend of ours at the same time we were buying and they are also extremely pleased. He has continued to followup with us to ensure we are happy with our home and we will continue to recommend him to others. - Damen Meade
James is truly the very best at his job. We gave him a tough sell in tough circumstances and he remained strong and positive and in the end got us exactly what we wanted. He sold our condo when we didn't think it was possible. James always provided options and advice and we were truly well taken care of. He is real, down to earth, and great at making sure everyone has the facts and a good understanding of everything that's going on. He was always available to answer our questions and he made us feel like we were the only clients he had. He is the most passionate, professional and personable person I have ever met. There is no doubt James will be our first call the next time we are in the market for buying or selling. - Kelsey Hooper
My fiancé and I couldn't have asked for a more dependable, knowledgeable, fun and professional agent to help us make the biggest financial decision of our lives. James was great at explaining things I didn't understand, which let's be honest, was a lot. He was available whenever we needed him and walked us through the process with ease. Buying your first home is a stressful time, and James helped relieve some of that stress with all of his knowledge, trustworthiness, as well as his sense of humor. James does more than help people find a house, he helps them find a community and a home. A place you're proud of, a place you look forward to raising your family and growing old with the person you love. James helps complete your story. Thank you James for making mine and Ryan's dream come true, we truly love our new home and couldn't be happier. - Rebecca Golden
I reached out to Mr. Dwyer to gather information on the possible options for selling my house. I had just finalized my divorce & wanted to be rid of my house for sentimental reasons, but thought some expert advice might guide me in balancing the speed of sale vs. getting the best dollar value for my house. I was originally of the mindset to just offload the house at any price, even at a loss. I believed my house might have even been un-sellable in its current condition. He brought with him statistical information about what similar houses in my neighbourhood were selling for and helped advise what steps I could take to make my house on par with theirs. He walked through my house and reminded me of all of the good features my house already had but I failed to recognize in my depressed state. He was incredibly patient with me over the course of the next few months as I slowly made improvements to the house. Time and time again, I would ask him questions, or tell him I was ready to list the house and then suddenly I'd change my mind. Each time he was understanding and professional. After finishing the renovations, Mr. Dwyer came in and made a listing for my house I never dreamed could have been possible. He made my house look unbelievably good in description, photos and a video. His social media presence helped get my house the attention it needed. After just one month on the market, I accepted an offer at the precise dollar value he had predicted for me 7 months beforehand. I made a 537.5% return on investment on the materials required to do the upgrades he had recommended. Without the perfect balance of his knowledge of the market, his empathy for understanding my struggles, and his ability to advertise a home better than anyone else, I would be struggling financially and emotionally right now. Instead, I have sold my house at a significant profit and have the freedom I worried I'd never have. Thank you Mr. Dwyer. - Bernard Langille
The task of buying my first home was extremely daunting. It was all new to me. But after I talked to James and we started looking at houses, I knew I was in good hands. He helped me though every step of buying a home. I am very impressed with his knowledge of it all. I learned a lot about what to look for in homes, the good and the bad. So I made a decision on the house I wanted and James made the process extremely smooth and seamless for me. From offers, negotiations, inspections, financial aspects to lawyers. He had it all covered. I would absolutely recommend James to anyone. - James Rankin
I have had the pleasure of knowing James for over 10 years. Over those years James has proven to me that he is trustworthy, hard-working, honest, resilient and above all else, dependable. James has been a colleague, a mentor, a friend and someone I know I can go to for advice of any kind. I would recommend James to anyone looking to purchase or sell their home, anyone seeking advice on mortgages or simply anyone looking to know what their options are before diving into the decision process. The reason I would recommend him goes far beyond his vast knowledge of the Real Estate industry and has to do with the fact that he genuinely wants to make a difference in peoples lives and in the city of Halifax. He has the desire and ability to bring out the best in people and to turn someone's day around, and that is the type of person I'd recommend. - Justin Hanlon
JD is that perfect piece of mid-century modern furniture that's been updated. He's got that sleek old school style, where even the smallest details are scrutinized. That old school style includes old school, actual, customer service. If you can still remember good customer service, choosing James will be like taking a pleasant stroll down memory lane, to a time where what you thought and actually desired mattered and someone would even listen. If you were born after 1995 (or there abouts) and have never actually experienced good customer service, choosing James will also serve as a living history lesson. But the kid isn't some relic who was transported here from the late 60s. Oh no, he's completely up on all the hip modern technology that helps you get what you want in a house. Technology that saves you time and energy when he's found you the perfect place to call home; or a buyer for the place that is past its perfection date. James is a perfect mixutre of the best things you nostalgically remember of the "good ol' days" and the promises made of technology that would actually make our lives easier. Choose James Dwyer and you'll love yourself for it. - Dewar MacDougall
Our house had already been on the market for six months when I asked James to be our realtor. We knew each other over social media, and I liked his approach to realty. As soon as James started to advertise our home, we began to book showings on what seemed like every day! It became apparent that the house just wasn't going to be an easy sell, but that didn't deter James. He put in tons of work, from making info cards with information about the house history and neighborhood, to answering dozens of questions from interested buyers from all over the country. The entire time I felt that he was transparent with us, always keeping us involved and informed. After hundreds of showings, and a few offers that didn't quite take, James found us the perfect buyers. We sold our home and almost immediately turned our sights to another, quite a ways outside HRM. We asked James to book us a showing and he didn't hesitate to start helping us find a new home. He drove more than an hour each way for each showing, but it was worth it. We ended up buying our dream home very quickly, and James facilitated everything, and even calmed my nerves a few times (house selling/buying is stressful!) We move in to our new home just before Christmas, and we are so excited to raise our family there. I can't recommend James highly enough. Selling our first home was a full time job, and he was a true professional. He took us from our first home to our 'forever' home. - Jessica
Having just moved back to NS after being away for 10years, James was the perfect match for my wants and needs! He found me the best condo, got me a deal all in a record time of a month! I would highly recommend James to anyone who is looking to make that large step in their lives! - Tanya
We decided to work with James to buy our first home in Dartmouth, NS... and we are very glad that we did! From initial viewings, to our final walkthrough, James was professional, punctual, personable, and incredibly knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate. James took his time explaining every step of the buying process and was quick to answer any questions that came up. When viewing properties James performed a thorough inspection with us, looking for possible problems in construction, the quality of finishes, appliances, etc. He was very knowledgable about home construction and renovation. We viewed lots of homes, and when we began to feel discouraged about not finding the right one for us, James reassured us to be patient, and ensured that we never settled for anything less than what we deserved. There was never any pressure to submit an offer on a property. James' motivation for us finding the right home always felt genuine. When it came time to make an offer on our home, James was prompt and we were able to sign our contract via email from our apartment. During closing, there was lots of communication and instruction on what to do, and when to do it. Working with James was a great experience and we would recommend his services to anyone! - Justin [email protected]
Now that we are finally settled into our lovely new home I just wanted to give a quick shoutout to our friend James Dwyer. James is hardworking, professional, patient, devoted family man and helped us graciously to find our new beautiful home. He understood what we were looking for in our new home. None of this would have been possible without the help and guidance of James. We honestly didn't know what we were getting ourselves into. James was always on top of whatever questions or concerns we had. He is a pleasure to work with as sometimes buying a house can be quite stressful. He always kept his cool and reassured us we would find what we were looking for. I'd refer James to anyone who is in the market of buying or selling. James is devoted to helping his clients find what they are truly looking for and treats them like family. Even though it was an especially busy time for James as his family was growing with the birth of his second child. He was always there to help us with whatever concerns we had and was able to find the time to help us find the house we wanted. Thanks for everything you did for us and continue to do. The McNeill family. - Derek McNeill

Reply: Thank you for your kind words, it truly was a pleasure to work with you.
Met him at an open house. This guy made our head spin. So quick to respond and oddly energetic. Hounded us until we met him. (Don't give him your contact info) Seemed desperate for a sale. Showed us properties no where near what we wanted. A fast talker who uses it to hide his ignorance. We bought through a different agent referred by a friend. - Roger and Denise Amero
