As we began the process to list our home for sale, we informally interviewed a few realtors prior to selecting Jim Koenigseder. After speaking with Jim, we were certain Jim was the right person to list our home with. I've worked with a variety of realtors in different markets as result of job relocations, investment properties, and second homes. Jim is the hardest working realtor I've ever worked with. He's possibly the hardest working professional in any field I've dealt with. Jim explained upfront that his service policy is to always answer his phone, and if he's in a showing or client meeting he returns calls promptly. Jim was always readily available when something came up, or I had a question; and it's important to understand his team is top volume producer in NWA (top 3 I believe), so Jim is a busy, productive professional, but always available. This is exceptionally important when contracts are closed or lost based on how well your realtor manages the process, and responds to issues as they arise. Jim's experience, guidance, connections, and volume allowed us to list our home for top dollar and realize significant exposure for our listing that would not have been possible via a less experienced realty team. Jim provided guidance on how to properly prepare our home for sale, and went as far as to connect us with outstanding contractors to correct a few minor things on our home prior to listing. The contactors we used through Jim's connections were prompt, cost effective, and provided quality workmanship to get it done right. On the back end when our home went under contract, Jim once again connected us with the right service providers to quickly correct a couple small items flagged on the inspection report, and get our home closed without delay. In today's demanding real estate environment, we would have never found a contractor to effectively correct these things within a matter a days without Jim's connections. Lastly, when it came to pricing and effectively negotiating our sale to secure top dollar, Jim is the guy you want on your side. It's easy for realtors to suggest to clients to move forward with lower offers to simply get a home closed, and commission paid. However, Jim fought on our behalf for every last dollar, and never encouraged us to settle for a lesser price than we were comfortable with. Selling a home can be a stressful process without a seasoned professional to effectively guide you through the process from start to finish. Jim is the only realtor we'll work with in NWA as long as he's available. There's simply too much at stake in real estate transactions not to have the most powerful professional on your side of the table.
