Jim Lawson was my agent for the sale of my home, and I would rank him in the top 1% of agents. He was always engaged with my sale, and was of tremendous value though the entire process. His leadership through the entire process respected my wants and needs while providing advice which was always informed and welcomed. Jim was unfailingly professional, and a calming influence during the intense period of selling my home. The sale was a challenge, which he rose to and successfully completed. - Robert Barnett

I first used Jim’s services over twenty years ago, when I bought my loft. He made it all so easy that I returned to him recently when it was time to sell the loft. He brought many skills to the table, including but not limited to sage advice on staging and presentation, a willingness to pitch in and undertake tasks that were well beyond his job description, and his unique ability to find a ‘win-win’ when there were gaps between the buyer and seller during negotiations. Especially important to this sale was his ability to navigate the housing market during uncertain times – finding ways to ‘rustle the bushes’ and find prospective purchasers when others could not. I have no hesitation in giving Jim the highest rating possible – he gets the best possible results whether you are a buyer or a seller. And this I know because, whether I was the buyer or the seller, he delivered on every level. - Leslie Montgomery

Now that we are more than 6 months comfortably settled into our new home, I wanted to thank Jim publicly for the invaluable role he played in making it happen. Jim has been my go to realtor for nearly 15 years, his decades of experience show in the way he handles difficult negotiations. Jim always goes above and beyond for his clients to ensure the right deal gets done! Jim is a calm, considerate, knowledgeable real estate professional, and a great negotiator. I highly recommend Jim to everyone I know. - Todd Dawson

This was an exceptionally tricky sale due to waits for boundary changes by City. Jim got the buyer on board who waited for months for the process to be completed. He facilitated communication between us during the waiting period. His professionalism and results were fantastic for both buyer and seller! - Laetitia Taylor

jim is a fantastic realtor and I highly recommend his professionalism to help sell or buy. Jim sold our first home in 2003 and recently helped us again. His knowledge, patience and experience proved invaluable. It became obvious he puts his clients interest above his own as he went that extra militating the extra time to negotiate the best price possible on our sale. I also appreciated the added time and care he took to help guide us through preparing our home to sell. He is truly an expert in what he does and his laid back communication style will immediately put you at ease - john

Jim helped my buy my first home, and was incredible from start to finish. He provided me excellent advice, was always there to help, and even now, four years later, if I have a question for him, he typically responds within minutes. Jim helped me get an incredible price on a home at a time when the market was just starting to really heat up in KW, and made sure that I was aware of all the potential issues of each home we visited so that I knew what I could use to haggle with the sellers. I highly recommend Jim as a realtor, he does fantastic work and remains courteous, friendly, and professional even years after our business had concluded! - Nathaniel O'Neill

Jim has worked with us buying two houses, and he has also helped our daughter purchase her first home. He is very knowledgeable, and works really hard to find the perfect fit. Jim has also become a valued resource, helping us find contractors, giving us advice on what would make the house more sellable when that time comes. I highly recommend Jim Lawson. - Emily Layng

Jim did a great job in explaining the home buying process to a first-time buyer. He was also very patient with me as we toured over 30 homes in the space of 3 weeks. He was present throughout the process and even after, helping us find reliable contractors for renovations. - Octavian Constantinescu

We would highly recommend Jim to potential buyers! He is very knowledgeable, and his years of experience are evident. He responded to emails or calls within minutes and took the time to answer all our questions. He understands the market, offered valuable insight, and expertly guided us through the entire process. Jim was able to effectively read our reactions and took the time to share his perspectives or point out potential issues with houses. We had complete confidence and trust in his ability to negotiate a deal on our behalf. As first time buyers, we appreciated Jim calling us between the house purchase and the closing date to check in and inform us of the next steps. Additionally, Jim’s wit and humour made the whole experience enjoyable. We absolutely love our new home! Thanks Jim – looking forward to seeing you on the bike trails! - N. Andrews

Jim's extensive knowledge, advice and ability to negotiate will both win you the home of your dreams & get you the best and highest price when you sell. I really appreciated Jim taking the time to properly prepare us about what to expect, next steps and where to best spend our time to edit/prepare our house to put it on the market. I would only choose Jim and would highly recommend him to represent my friends, colleagues and family. - Krista Obendorf

Excellent people skills and professional skills with both seller and buyer. A very kind manner that puts people at ease. He provides true ‘full service’, for busy clients.

Jim is an excellent agent, when my husband and I purchased our first home, Jim went out of his way to make our first home buying experience an enjoyable one. When it came time to look for our second home and sell our first, we didn't even hesitate when choosing an agent. We knew Jim would do an outstanding job and he made it just as easy the second time around. - Erin

Jim was a great realtor to work with when purchasing our home. His experience helped to spot issues or inconviences in homes that we wouldn't have considered. He really listened to our wants and needs, patiently answered all of our questions, and helped to narrow our focus when we were overhelmed with our first home purchase; he ended up finding us the perfect home! - Sarah Endo

Jim Lawson made us feel confident is selling when we were very uncertain that our home would even sell. He was very professional and personable! His 30 year history in real estate really only points to his expertise! He knew exactly who would buy our home and the best way to market it. We had a specific number that we needed and Jim got us over and above what we needed! He was always quick to answer any questions or concerns we had all through the process. Jim went above and beyond our expectations! If you are not sure who to choose Jim is your guy! - Cynthia Norris

Jim was an excellent agent. He is professional, personable, easy to relate to and was very confident when pricing and marketing our home. I believe he marketed our "fixer upper" perfectly in the current market. We are very pleased with the results. Jim even went over and above his responsibilities and recommended a real estate agent for my in-laws in Windsor. I would definitely recommend Jim to anyone selling a home in the KW area. - Scott Norris
