My Client Reviews
Jim is very easy to work with and is always personable and professional. He helped me sell a home in an area that he was unfamiliar with and he promptly learned about the area. If I had any question regarding the sale, he always responded back in a timely manner. He offered advice if I was unsure of a situation. He is a great listener and knew what we wanted and negotiated for us. I would recommend Jim for any real estate transactions. He made our sale stress free.
Mr. Swankler was very attentive and professioanal from the very start. He was also very patient as it took a while to find the perfect home! Shopping for a new home in the middle of winter in the Westmoreland ridges is not always the eastiest! Due to his experience, his input and suggestions were very helpful as was his dedication to find exactly what we are looking for in a house. He was always available to answer questions, look at properties and, in general, be there for us whenever needed. Purchasing a new home can be a very anxiety-filled experience; however, Jim did everything possible to make it a pleasant and exciting time. We highly recommend Jim as your real estate agent!
Jim is a complete professional with decades of useful experience. The service that Jim provided was above and beyond what we expected and translated into money saved. He helped first time buyers navigate a tricky market and was able to close a deal within hours of submitting an offer. We could not have done it without Jim's help and guidance.
What an breeze it was to work with Jim Swankler! To rewind from the very beginning, we worked with Jim back in 2017 to purchase our 2nd house but it just was not in the cards on our end as buyers to do so. Jim was so understanding when we had to tap the brakes for awhile. Fast forward to May of 2020 and we were ready again! We chose Jim without any hesitation to represent us as buyers and sellers. Jim quickly and confidently listed our house and within just a few days, our house was already contingent! Jim strived to sell our house to get us the most money and was an expert when it came to us negotiating for a new house. There were times Jim would work late to make sure he would get our offers in after looking at houses in the evening as well. (We have very busy work schedules). Jim was always in contact with us to ensure everything was running smoothly so we could close on our scheduled date. There are so many great qualities to Jim that made it a pleasure to work with him. Just a few were; his honesty, dedication, and how knowledgeable he is on the entire home buying and selling process. There are just simply not enough words to thank Jim for all he did for us and we are so grateful that he helped us find a house that felt like home. We will absolutely recommend Jim Swankler at any chance we get.
Honestly one of the most pleasant people Ive ever had the pleasure to work with. Jim keeps the conversations professional but also personal, he knows what hes talking about and has the experience to back it up. Any question i asked was answered honest and truethfully, and if there was any documentation to go along with those questions it was retrieved. Bottom line is Jim worked very well with me, and kept my best intrest in clear sight. Could not recommend him more.
Jim understood that I needed to sell my house quickly. The process was so smooth and we had the house sold within a couple of weeks. I will use his service again in a couple of months when it is time to look for a new house. Thanks Jim.

Jim helped me buy my first home. He was always available to answer my questions and was honest. I felt comfortable working with him because I could see he was looking out for my best interest not just as another client. I will recommend him to anyone I know who needs a realtor . Thanks again for your help,Jim!
Previous review from Austin W.
Jim Swankler helped my son purchase his first home. He is knowledgeable, helpful, a nice guy, and prompt to respond to calls,texts, and emails. It became clear very early in the process that he was way more professional than the realtors who were selling the homes we were considering as they had no personality and didn't really seem to care if they sold the homes or not. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy OR sell their home after dealing with those other realtors!
Working with Jim was a pleasure. He made himself available to answer all our questions and show us properties. Jim looked out for our best interest and made us feel comfortable. Jim is the realtor my husband and I intend to use in the future. I highly recommend Jim whether you are buying or selling.
As a first time home buyer I knew nothing. Jim was very helpful in helping me learn everything there is about buying a home for the first time. Truly is everything you could ask for in an agent.
We've been working with Jim for more than a year... Buying a house is a very big decision to make, Jim gave us the information that we need and share his experience especially by being a first time homeowner. He's very professional and very responsive, trustworthy, a good man and a nice friend. Our success is your success Jim, thank you very much, God bless you more!

Jim was very patient and explained everything so we understood what was going to happen and how it would happen. We are Very Happy to have Jim on our side through this entire process He not only was our realtor but also came a good friend.
