    About Jim

    I can be reached directly at 623.698.3350 feel free to call or text me anytime.

    I have the best job in the world! I get to look at homes all day, meet new people and help others sell or find homes they will enjoy perhaps for many years to come! With an extensive background in contracts, specification writing negotiations assisting high profile Clients, Custom Builders, Architects Designers through the maze of Smart Home Construction. I've found those skills transfer perfectly into helping others with buying selling Real Estate here in Arizona.

    I returned to Arizona in 2012 after 30+ years in the Seattle Metro Area. I enjoy fixing up my old home, golfing and spending time with our young grandchildren.

    Selling a Home?
    When it's time to move, you need someone who will market your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I take care of everything from listing to closing! My distinct advantage is national exposure for your property using the latest technology. I have access to buyers from all over the US Canada moving to Arizona.

    Jim was honest, professional and knows his product. He was an electrical contractor for 30 years which tells me he has knowledge of physical aspects of houses. Every time I had a question he would get back to promptly. If he didn't like something about a house he would be straight up about it. All in all I felt I could trust him

    Jim is about everything you can ask for in a real estate agent. On time for appointments, always available or would have an associate fill in, help with determining age of different parts of the house or appliances and giving advice when asked. I was very pleased with his approach to selling

    Jim is a dedicated, hard working Real Estate professional. He answers all of your questions and if he doesn't have the answer he does his research and gets the answer right back to you. And I mean right back! I have worked with Jim on two sales and two purchases and each time he handled every detail and any problems with little attention on my part. It was great for this 86 year old lady.

    With Jim you always know what is going on. He is professional and dedicated to the job he his doing for you. I always knew he had the best thing for the sale of my condo uppermost in his care and management. And he will take the time to explain what is going on. I have bought and sold homes in seven states and Jim has by far more knowledge and dedication to the job than I have ever seen before

    I have lived and bought homes in manyl states....Jim is the best realtor I have ever worked with...He is always available and on top of what is going on and always makes a person feel as if they are the only job he has. He sold my home and then found me a condo...both transactions went smoothly. He is a detail nut and I am not, he always filled me in on all that I needed to know. And included in his knowledge of the businesss is a great personality. So glad we could work together and so pleased with the results.

    Jim is very aware of current market conditions. He was helpful in suggesting some minor changes that made our home look more market ready. When it was time for a cleaning service, his sources were excellent. We had a buyer in two days. I would recommend him to anyone.

    I feel it was my lucky day to have found Jim in the internet. He worked very hard to find me my home. My first day the temp outside was 120 and with not one complaint he had multiple homes for me to look at. He is very decated to what he does for his buyers and he worked to get all our boxes checked on his buyer wish list . I would highly recommend to my family and friends. Thank you Jim and Johannes for all the hard and hot work to make my wish come true.

    Jim is by far the best realtor I have ever dealt with. I felt like I was dealing with a friend, not just an agent. He always kept us informed of what was going on and provided good advice whenever we needed it. I highly recommend Jim Emler whether you're selling or buying. Just an all around good guy!

    Jim Emler and Johannes Amerbacher provided excellent service to us. They make an excellent team. We had a short window of opportunity to look for a winter home in Surprise. They understood that and provided the level of service necessary to accomplish our goal. Very professional in looking out for our interests through the whole process. I have already recommended them to friends.

    Please review! We (Jim and I) both worked together from long distance daily reviewing properties. Jim, first created a property search on property I was interested in Arizona. I reviewed the houses daily to help me locate some good properties I liked. When arriving in Arizona I was educated enough on the kind of properties /houses, I wanted to buy. This help me greatly in locating the property I recently purchased in Arizona. Thank you Jim Emler

    I would recommend Jim highly and indeed have done so for a friend of mine who bought from Jim and my brother who will be buying in the future. Jim is in this for the people not the money. His research, patience, understanding is outstanding. He makes sure that the house you buy is the house you want and if it takes time to find than he will make time for you to find it. He will also handle the sale of my home and the purchase of my next one when I am ready to do so. I trust Jim and that is something I don't do easily.

    As a life long Michigan resident I knew very little about the AZ market. Houses, terms, and even HOA were foreign. Jim has answered even the dumb questions with grace and skill. I am not ready to move due to challenges in MI but when I do I know that Jim will be my greatest aid. Barbara, Detroit MI.

    we were very happy with Jim as our realtor. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. In fact, he sold our home too soon. We were hoping to spend the winter there instead of having to go back to cold MN so soon.

    I knew the type of home I wanted and had an idea of what was available in my price range but was unprepared for the complications of being a foreign buyer. Jim was knowledgeable and patient in helping me get the home I wanted and completing the miles of red tape.

    I was an absentee owner of a property in Sun City. Jim came to me recommended from a mutual friend. He is a no pressure agent. I have had multiple homes in my short 47 years (6) and have had 11 transactions of either buying or selling a property. My experience with Jim was excellent. He is very knowledgeable about the market in the area and managed the process thoroughly. Help me in many was from finding cleaning crew to painters. Awesome experience. Am planning to sell my primary residence in Tennessee and wish Jim would come handle it for me.

    Jim is amazing. I have had the pleasure of having Jim Emler as my real estate agent for several months now. He is a hard working individual with a serious commitment to service. He has worked with my schedule as I fly into Phoenix for short periods of time and he has a seemingly endless supply of energy and patience. He also has an endless supply of information about the area and if I ask a question which he can't immediately answer he always checks into it and gets back to me with an answer. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home. In fact I have already recommended him to family and friends and will continue to do so. Sincerely Susan R

    We feel that Jim gave us his valuable time and was amazingly responsive to our needs in locating he perfect home for us. He make of know better than i did what I wanted. He wasn't concerened about his bottom line, it was ALL ABOUT US.you couldn't find a better agent, after a few interviews he knew where to look,even if we thought a home was great, he would remind us of what we said was important at the on set, and kept us following are orginal plan and what do you know, we did find the perfect home. I really trust his skills.

    Honest review!! Jim .......... Hmmm how could I sum up his service in a review? Frankly I don't think any thing I say will match up to the type of person or great service that I have received. I have been hesitant to write a review for this reason feeling that I couldn't convey how great he really is. Let's start off with the fact that I really don't care for any real estate agents, like most companies now adays they lack real customer service and are just like car salesmen for homes just trying to get you in something ..... So they can get a check! This is NOT the case when it comes to Jim! I have been working with Jim for 4 months and we have put out some offers and they didn't pan out..... After awhile I was frustrated and ready to buy whatever property was next and Jim actually told me "NO" .... I was surprised and woke up that moment and he told me we have been looking at properties and this is nothing like what you said you wanted.... The home you want is out there and we will find it! So every day Jim and I are hitting it hard looking for the right one and Jim jumps up and springs in action when we need it(you would swear he is 18 :) ) we have ran into som snags and Jim is right there pushing foe what you want not pointing out things you don't like to convince you, but to make sure YOU are happy with your purchase. Now we have an offer out and hoping for the best but no worries if we don't win the bid because we have Jim.... And he's with us till its done!!! He is the last of a dying breed like a doctor who actually knows you and your families name without looking at a chart ( any recomendations let me know ) and I wish all agents were this way he is what they should strive to be... A "REAL" estate agent!
