"My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Mike in buying out first home. There were unexpected bumps in the road, but Mike helped us through every bit of it with confidence and great expertise. He helped calm our nerves and eliminate fears as we went through it all. In the end we were able to close just after Christmas and surprise our daughters. We absolutely love our new home and couldn't have found a better agent. We can not recommend Mike highly enough for the outstanding work he does to keep his clients' educated, informed, and satisfied. Thank you again Mike for everything you did for us!!!!"

"My wife and I worked with Mike to find our current home and couldn't be happier! The whole process was very smooth -- Mike was helpful and resourceful the entire way through, always willing to go that extra little step to meet us at a new listing, or answer any silly questions we had as first time buyers. If in 10 years we had to sell or buy a new house, I would definitely seek out Mike's assistance again without hesitation. Please reach out to him and let him do as good of a job as he did with us."

"My wife and I worked with Mike Wise and I must say he was phenomenal. He was there every step of the way helping us in the purchase of our first home. There was nothing he wasn't able to answer or get answered for us. He helped us get a great price on our home and made the process a very good experience. Thank you Mike. Also when the time comes to sell this house we have every intention of having Mike list our home."

"I worked with Mike Wise, a member of Jim's team. Mike was awesome, very responsive, helpful, insightful, just did a wonderful job. Mike is a nice guy and very knowledgeable and did whatever he had to in finding me the home I wanted. He really was instrumental in the negotiation and I got a great deal. He went over and above my expectations which were high to begin with. I highly recommend Mike!"

"Let me first begin by stating that this is undoubtedly the best real estate experience that my wife and I have ever had. I could easily make this review the length of a book to express all of the benefits that we received when working with the Jim Dumont team. Jim, Mike, and Kristina are the three people we worked with from the team and it is clear that they are very well aware of the strengths that each brings to the team to benefit the entire transaction.

Jim - First let me begin by stating that Jim has a background in internet driven sales for both real estate and the automotive sales industry. When Jim first began presenting his market analysis, he provided data analytics to support his claims. He works based off of concrete data and facts as opposed to inclinations. Jim is a straight shooter, something that I feel you desperately need when selling a home. He was very honest about what we could expect in every aspect of the transaction. With Jim's help, we listed our house for sale on a Monday and had an accepted offer in by Saturday. We never dreamed that things would move as quickly as they did. I truly attribute it to Jim's understanding of the market and his recommendations based on the market analysis. What was particularly nice was that through the entire process, Jim was always completely available. Whenever we called, emailed, or texted him, he was quick to respond. I have already recommended Jim to several friends who are hoping to list their home within the coming months due to Jim's professionalism and the quality of his work.

Kristina - Upon our initial meeting, she joined Jim and evaluated the condition of the house we were selling. It was great to have an additional perspective as to what things should be done to help sell our house. There were certain cosmetic-related renovations that we were considering that she felt were unnecessary. Kristina did an absolutely fabulous job at doing the "behind the scenes" work that comes with real estate. My understanding is that she was responsible for creating the market analysis for Jim and providing the appraiser with accurate comparable homes for their appraisal. Without her diligence, I do not believe that our house would have sold as quickly or for the price that it ended up selling for.

Mike - We absolutely loved Mike. Wow, what a great guy. I don't believe that we have ever met someone that was so focused on ensuring that we were finding a house that would directly suit our needs. Mike showed us around 15 different houses during our search. We never felt as if we were pressured to make a decision on a house during our search. He simply wanted us to find a house that we could call our home. I do not believe that Mike sleeps. I'm certain that he lives to serve others because he was available at all hours during the day for a phone call, email, or text. I distinctly remember him responding to a phone call late in the evening (930-10pm) one evening and a text message at 6am the next morning. That is truly remarkable. Mike has a calm, calculated approach towards real estate. He was able to lay down the hammer when it came to negotiations so that we were not being taken advantage of. But most importantly, he was someone who we immediately trusted. It's rare that you find an individual who is as trust worthy as Mike.

All in all, I believe that the Jim Dumont team have a clear understanding of synergy. They have a clear understanding of each team member's strength and the benefit they provide to the team. Together they worked towards one common goal, and it was clear with every interaction we had with the team. I highly recommend this team to anyone who is looking for a trustworthy, honest, and reliable real estate agent."
