In my previous dealings with Jim, I was impressed with his patience ( we were hard to suit) and his ability to locate properties that fit our requirements. He is such a kind and thoughtful person; I enjoyed working with him. JIm carefully read over the various contracts I had to sign. I appreciated his attention to detail and pointing out aspects I might have missed.
We had worked with Jim Reid previously and he was our first choice when we started our search. He is an excellent agent and his performance was professional and helpful at every point of our buying experience. We recommend him to others who are considering a real estate purchase. His experience in the area helped us find the best property and negotiate the price.
Jim Reid listened to us about what we would like in a new home. We initially met Jim in the fall and told him that we would not be purchasing until the spring as we go south for the winter. Jim toured us in all directions around Asheville showing us a variety of homes and neighborhoods so that we felt comfortable in our final selection. He kept in touch with us during the winter months so that we were aware of the market which helped us to make a quick decision upon our return to Asheville.
I have had the pleasure of working with Jim Reid on three real estate transactions. He orchestrated the buying of two homes and the selling of one home. Jim listened to every question that I had about buying and selling. I felt that he gave me wonderful sound advice in all three transactions. At times, I wondered if I was Jim's only client because he was ready to show me homes, answer phone call at once, plans to advertise with ads, photos and on line video, open house, suggestions on staging and he was 100 percent helpful in any way he could. I felt if you look up "Real Estate Agent" in the dictionary, you might find a picture and description of Jim Reid, a professional and caring real agent.

There are so many things that can go wrong in a real estate deal. And nearly everything went wrong on ours. But it worked out in the end, thanks to the astounding persistence and professionalism of Jim Reid of Preferred Properties. Issue after issue popped up, and Jim was on top of it every time. He communicated with us quickly and clearly, explaining what was going on every step of the way. And he was great with answering our many questions. He worked with the seller, the seller's attorney, the bank, our attorney, the inspector, the closing attorney and many other parties to iron out all the problems. Thanks to Jim, we are the proud owners of a new house. We honestly could not have done it without him.
