Jim is very knowledgeable about the market, what buyers want and how to prepare a home for sale. He went the extra mile to help get it prepped for listing. He knew what to upgrade and where to spend money to get an appropriate price. To sell a home in today's market and at our price point was impressive. I highly recommend him.
I have worked with Jim as both a buyer and a seller and I am confident that in both cases he had my best interests in mind. He is very knowledgeable about the Anchorage market and I completely trusted his guidance and expectations for the purchase and sale of my property. Jim is professional and creative and I believe he was instrumental in making my property the first of four similar properties in my neighborhood to sell.
It's difficult to find the words to appreciate the excellent realtor and exceptional person that Jim Standiford is. My husband and I happened to meet Jim at an open house a few months ago and were instantly struck by his warmth, his passion for Alaskan real estate, and his dedication to helping his clients find not just a house, but the right house.
From the very beginning, Jim took every effort and made note of every detail that we shared with him. His commitment to understanding our house requirements were exceptional and paid off instantly, as he soon ushered us into house after house with features that we adored.
Buying real estate in a state that you have inhabited for only a few months is no easy venture, but Jim's knowledge, expertise and patient approach to answering all our questions and clearing our doubts really made for a great house shopping experience. Even as the economy shakes up and down, our confidence in Jim's ability to match the right house with the right people remains unshaken.
From start to finish in this process, Jim Standiford was outstanding! He was referred to me by another colleague. I have worked with many real estate agents throughout the last twenty years while living in many different states. Jim was truly a cut above every other agent I have contracted with.
JIm's insight into the Alaska market, his patience while I searched for the right property over a six month period, and the level of service provided were all done at an elite level.
For example, the week I was suppose to close I was also received word that my mother in law was going to pass. Jim took care of everything from contacting all parties involved including the builder, the mortgage broker, the title company, the movers, etc.... and slid the closing to the following week so I could focus my thoughts on my family.
I am truly indebted to this agent for all he has done to make my Alaska Dream come true. He found me the right area, the right builder, the right mortgage broker, and the right mover to drive my household belongings from Kentucky to Alaska! I highly recommend Jim Standiford for anyone moving to the Anchorage, Alaska area!
Jim was recommended to us from some family and have been pleased with his assistance in purchasing our home. He was very accommodating to our schedules. With traveling, work, and a toddler he was always available for showings and questions during irregular hours and last minute requests. Jim worked on every detail and went above and beyond to help us in purchasing our new home. He was honest, provided valuable insights to home repairs, and recommended excellent contractors. We highly recommend him to friends and family for any real-estate needs.
Jim is the best realtor that I've ever worked with. He is hard-working, honest and makes the whole process easy, buying or selling. His local knowledge of the Anchorage/Eagle River and attention to detail makes you feel comfortable and confident in making decisions. A patient, diligent person that never let's you settle for less than you want. I highly recommend Jim to work with.
Jim Standiford was fantastic as our realtor during our home sale in 2016. He guided us through the process seamlessly, and it was clear that he genuinely cared about our best interests. His straightforward and friendly demeanor simplified the complexity of selling a home, and his hardwork (multiple open houses, taking our calls at all hours, etc) paid off with multiple offers and a final sales price of 98% of what we were asking. If you want honest, straightforward, result-oriented representation while you are trying to sell your home, use Jim! I am recommending him to all my friends and military colleagues looking to buy or sell a house in Anchorage.
Jim was very helpful throughout the process. He was always willing to take extra steps for us, like getting quotes from contractors to make informed decisions on negotiation or chasing down a product to find where we could get a replacement. He also takes extra time working out repairs if needed and working with contractors when my busy schedule just didn't allow the time needed to coordinate everything. Even after I have been in my new house for a couple months now, I can still contact Jim to get me the contact info for a trusted repair guy when I needed it. Jim really is the best there is.
We will always use Jim Standiford when looking or selling real estate! He is such an asset to RE/MAX!! We were very lucky to have him as our Realtor!
Jim is really terrific. He guided us through our buying experience with knowledge and a caring hand! It's nice to deal with someone who knows what they're doing. We will be gladly recommending him to anyone we know who is house hunting in the Anchorage area! Jim listened to our wants and needs to help us find not only the perfect home but also did it within our strict timeline! We are 100% satisfied with our experience with Jim. He was extremely attentive and always responsive when we had questions or concernes. He is an extremely hard worker and will do anything it takes to make sure his clients are happy!
Jim has helped me purchase a new home and has sold 2 homes for me. He is honest, knowledgable and works hard to get you what you want/need. He was able to line up contractors and painters and get our home on the market very quickly, with an offer after only 2 days. He is very thorough and explains things clearly. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
Jim has helped me with several deals over the years. I'm a demanding client and Jim is my "go to" guy. He lives real estate and is truly in his prime as a realtor. If your searching for a realtor right now your search is over, there is zero risk with Jim. These aren't just friendly words for Jim, it's just fact.
