Jim's most recent endorsements

My bank recommended Jim as one of the top professional realtors in SW Florida to help my wife and I to find our luxury home to purchase. My wife and I are so pleased to have worked with Jim. He heard what we wanted, was available when we needed, was extremely patient till we found just the perfect home, was extremely knowledgeable with both the market and the contracts, and then negotiated a deal that we thought he would never get for us. We went to the closing table knowing that Jim did the very best for US, not for himself. We had more peace with Jim and his team than we have had with any other real estate transactions, residential and commercial, in the past. We strongly recommend Jim to help you with your real estate needs. – Jim Westerfield
01/28/2016-Showed home in 2015 in Four Seasons, FL 34109. Primary point of contact: Jack Richert My contact was with his associate Jack Richert... Due to illness situations have not made the purchase yet , but will. Jack is a knowledgeable first rate no pressure , gentleman all around . He is prompt to return a call , accommodating in every way possible. – Jim Westerfield
10/15/2015 - Sold a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $250K in Estero, FL. Jim worked with my family in a long distance and local forum. My mother recently moved to a retirement community in Naples (from Estero) but her entire family is in Ohio. We stay connected by coming to visit. We decided as a family to sell Estero and buy in Naples, to continue our means to stay together as much as possible. We met Jim basically by phone and email, and then in person briefly. He actually lives in our Estero neighborhood, which made coordinating a breeze. He went well above and beyond what I would expect any real estate broker to ever do with almost every aspect of both the sale of our condo and the soon to be purchase of our new home. He has contacts with just about anything one would need, from renovation contractors, to moving groups to landscapers and even restaurant recommendations. He seamlessly coordinated everything with us, even though we were in Ohio most of the time. He actually sold our Estero condo before it even got on the market!! And though it is quick, we found a new home and hopefully will be closing by the end of the month. Our situation is not unique, but it is a challenge as as a family we are purchasing a new home with both individuals and Trusts involved. Jim has made every effort to help us along the way. His title team is friendly and courteous and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and well informed. At the sale of our Estero condo, we were not available and Jim walked us through the entire process from a distance. The buyers felt one room was not clean to their expectations and Jim actually went over to our condo and cleaned it himself to preserve everyone's integrity and happiness.!! His powers of negotiations and faith and passion for what he does showed through with everything he did for us. Though in a sales driven industry that often has a reputation for dishonesty and shenanigans, Jim has none of that. He truly directed us to what he felt was the absolute best choice for our family and no matter what direction we would have gone on both the sell or buy side, we felt the comfort of his wisdom and kindness of his heart. I truly hope we remain in touch and become friends - he was just that terrific!!Less – Jim Westerfield

11/21/2013 - Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $250K in River Reach, Naples, FL. We worked with Jim twice in the past few years and were very pleased with his service and professionalism each time. Our most recent experience working with Jim led us to finding our current home which we never want to leave. It was very important to us to find the right size house, in the right location, within our price range and it didn’t prove to be an easy task. Jim showed us several properties and never gave up until we found ‘the one’. His help negotiating price and improvements by the seller was invaluable. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a home in the southwest Florida area. – Jim Westerfield
11/21/2013 - Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $250K in River Reach, Naples, F I am so glad my husband and I used Jim as our Realtor when we started house-hunting. I found him to be very friendly and determined to satisfy our (almost unrealistic) goals. After numerous showings, we found the perfect home in a great neighborhood that we most likely would have never found on our own. I never felt any pressure to ‘just settle on a house’ which was very important to me and I have to say I wasn't the most easily satisfied shopper. I was also pleased with the way Jim handled the closing phase of our home purchase and feel like we got a great deal with him as our representative. I would definitely recommend Jim to any of my friends looking for homes in the southwest Florida area and feel confident that they would be as satisfied as I am. – Jim Westerfield
09/03/2013 - Bought a Multi Family home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Naples, FL. We would highly recommend Jim Westerfield to anyone and everyone who is looking for a real estate agent. Our son recommended Jim to us. Jim had previously worked with other family members in buying their house and our son was truly impressed with Jim. He said he wanted us to use an honest and reputable realtor, especially since we didn't live in the area. He help us make the initial contact with Jim while visiting in Florida. Even on such short notice, Jim was very responsive. Jim went above and beyond our expectations while we were there and able to look at property as well as when we returned home. Jim listened to our "wants" vs. "needs" and helped us find the perfect property for us in our price zone. We can't imagine trying to do the inspections and various other aspects of buying our condo without Jim's guidance and knowledge, especially living in another state. We found Jim to be just as our son described him: honest, reputable, responsive, hard working, a good guy who knows his business. We recommend Jim Westerfield without any reservations and wish you the best in finding your new home. – Jim Westerfield
08/12/2013 - Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $725K in Naples, FL. Jim, was extremely valuable from listening to what our expectations were from a cost perspective to home type and community. He minimized our time in searching for the home we were looking for. Jim, also took very good notes while meeting with our builder and recognized some discounting that was initially promised as well as some structural agreements that were later not recalled by builder. This enable us the savings discount that was initially promised. Jim, because of his time and experience in the business was also instrumental in his negotiating skills to recognize opportunities in builder discounting which led to further savings. If you are looking for a home in South Florida and want to save time and money I would highly recommend Jim Westerfield! Doug & Linda Gober Response from Jim: Thanks so much Doug and Linda.
