Jim stood out from the others. He was professional and presented multiple examples of homes in the area that were similar in price and size. Jim was upfront and honest about the amount we could get for our home. His paperwork, staging, and instructions for selling our home were presented well. Even though we were going through a separation, Jim was able to easily communicate all of the information separately. Jim was very good at defusing tense situations and providing solutions. I would highly recommend Jim Staten to anyone buying or selling a home.
He also showed interest in our personal life and what we had going on in our day to day. He even assisted us in finding any discrepancies of the home during our walk-thru and that showed my wife and I that he wanted to make sure we got the most out of our home and cared about his client(s). I would recommend Brian to my friends and family especially those who are new to the home buying process
He walked me and my wife through the process, got us connected with home experts to fix those last needed projects, and was able to sell our home fast! Thanks, Jim!
We have already recommended Jim to our many friends and family and he has helped as the preferred realtor to multiple friends and also our parents! Jim does a great job taking the time to understand your situation, desires and dis/likes for the property your searching for or your criteria for a successful sale listing. Then he supports and advises you though a successful listing, property search and closing. Jim's super likable, easy to work with, and I have found his advice to be insightful and truthful. If your looking for someone customer oriented and on your side, I enthusiastically endorse Jim!
He’s not pushy and he sold our house in three hours. He’s amazing!
! He is very patient and tentative to what you’re looking for in a home, he was able to help us successfully navigate the housing market with experience and dedication to making our home purchase the right one for us! Trust Brian and you won’t regret it!
He was thorough in all aspects. We purchased during a highly competitive time of year and his suggestions and insight on submitting offers was so appreciated. He was always quick to reply and very attentive! I highly recommend Brian if you are looking to purchase. His knowledge and experience cannot be matched!
From identifying what listings that would be a good fit, knowing the area, being very responsive to any questions and pointing out all pros/cons of each home we visited to make sure there were no surprises. Jim was also very good at painting the bigger picture and informing us about the long term plan of each home with updates that would need addressed immediatly, 1 year or 5 years down the road so that we knew exactly what we were getting. More than just the right here right now on the surface when you walk through a home. We felt like we were always being steered in the right direction to get the exact home we were looking for and that Jim always had our best interest in mind. Would highly recommend and look forward to working with Jim again in the future!
He was friendly and proactive about any renovations that needed to be done. He kept things moving in a positive direction. There were several contractors that were involved and he helped make sure the cost was within our budget but done tastefully and timely. We appreciated all the help and support he provided.
! He traveled all over the place looking at houses with us. He was very safe with COVID-19 and took all the precautions to make sure everyone was safe. He put in all the hard work and walked us through the whole process making it so easy for us. He helped us find our dream first home! Would Highly recommended Jim!
As first time buyers with a very specific taste, buying their first home in the midst of a pandemic, he made the process painless, stress-free, and as close to easy as he possibly could have. By the time we were on our second or third weekend of viewings, we were finding ourselves pointing out things like a dimensional roof before he did, because he gave us so much insight into what we were looking at in these houses! He listened to our likes and dislikes and tried to point out houses to us that fit our vision before we even saw them. The home that we ended up buying, he called us 30 minutes after it hit the market and asked if we wanted to see it because it looked like exactly what we wanted and in one of our top neighborhoods - 24 hours later we were in contract. Jim is the perfect Columbus realtor for first-time buyers (or any buyers!) and we highly recommend.
We always knew Jim was great, but now after having to buy and sell a couple houses without him we know he is THE BEST and I promise we’re not just saying that because he is my dad. So thankful for his help in selling our house and driving to Dayton to help us find our dream home! He is so knowledgeable in every area of real estate and works very hard to ensure the process goes smoothly!
He is a very patient and understanding agent that will narrow down the perfect home of your choice. He is very easy to work with and extremely flexible for setting up showings. He is very knowledgeable and will assure you are getting the best deal. I would highly recommend Jim for anyone looking to buy a house.
Brian was extremely helpful, truthful and reliable about anything we might be worried about. All questions answered, we closed and couldn’t be happier. Will recommend to all family and friends!
He was very detail oriented and guided me through the whole process. He is a true professional and would be my #1 pick for a realtor. Brian also found a home for my son, and clearly I would only recommend the best to my child. Again, very attentive to my son on the purchase of his new home.
As first time home buyers he was always available with our many questions. He gave us great insight as to options in financing, different options in buying (building vs rehabbing vs ready to move in) and is EXTREMELY knowledgeable in the real estate business! Each time we went to visit a home I did not feel rushed or pressured to make a decision, instead it was quite the opposite. Jim took time to weigh out the pros and cons of each house according to our desires, which in turn helped us make a decision in this fast -paced market. He also has a quick and efficient online presence - all documents were sent and signed online and we got listings that matched our criteria every day. If Jim wasn't available by phone right away he always texted with a time he could talk or answered our question. The closing process was relatively smooth and the few hiccups we did have (with the title company) Jim was right there fighting on our behalf to get things corrected. Jim is definitely your advocate when you hire him and he goes the extra mile! Once we started moving Jim didn't stop serving us, he was able to recommend electricians, plumbers, excavators and anything we needed to make the transition smooth. Jim is now a friend and we are proud to call him our realtor!!
He sold several of our houses. Each and every time he made the process easy. He is very knowledgeable and is attentive to every need. One thing that stands out the most about Jim is his responsiveness. He always kept us updated. He listened to our needs and found the best home for us. Thanks to Jim we have a new home where we can build memories and grow as a family!
I have known him for 20 years and this is the 3rd house he's sold or helped me purchase. I'm always kept informed and always know what's going on. I'm not up to date on how technology is used, but he is. He sold our place in 2 days with multiple contracts and all over the list price! We closed in 2 weeks! I was always kept informed. Also, I like working with nice people and he is that kind of person. But he can be direct and a bit aggressive when it's time to be. I would recommend him for any type of real estate transaction.
..extremely knowledgeable. As a 1st time homeowner, Jim answered our questions (or found the answer on the rare occasion he didn’t know), and gave us the things to look for when buying a home. I would absolutely recommend Jim to anyone buying or selling a home. Jim is a library of knowledge and is 100% committed to his clients!
Not only is he professional, experienced, well connected, prompt, and proactive but he also cares. He asks thoughtful questions and shares concerns. I couldn’t be happier with his service and would recommend him to anyone!
Most recently Jim worked with my brother and me to sell a rental property. Jim was very thorough with his evaluation of the property and had lots of insights as to how best to prepare the property for sale. We had several showings booked, had 3 good offers and a signed contract within 3 days. I really appreciate Jim’s expertise and assistance.
Brian never left any questions unanswered and always responded promptly. He offered excellent advice and helped us make informed decisions. Brian reached out to an agent, submitted an offer that afternoon, and we had a deal by 9:00pm! He knew his business which helped us land our dream home in today’s market where homes sell fast!
He was always there for my wife and I day or night and always responded in a timely manner. Jim would always make time for us whenever a house popped up in this crazy market. As first time home buyers he taught us a lot about the process and caught details about homes we visited that might have gone unnoticed. I couldn't imagine having done this without him.
He is a knowledgeable agent who goes above and beyond for his clients, making an otherwise stressful process go smoothly. He helped us buy our first house a few years ago and he was our first choice when we recently decided to sell it!
Got us in a house within 2 months of working with him!
He made the process more smooth than I could have asked for!
House sold in one day and Jim has stayed on all the details. Very professional
He did a great job. I will surely recommend him to my friends. Thanks!
He was very responsive and would answer his phone anytime of the day or evening. Very knowledgeable and helpful.
This is the 3rd transaction in which our family has utilized Jim as our Realtor and we continue to be surprised by his professionalism and depth of experience. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
He makes the home-buying experience very easy and is very prompt. I can't say enough about his wonderful character and professionalism. I would recommend Jim to anyone seeking a realtor for their home-buying and selling needs. Thanks, Jim!
He worked relentlessly to get us into a house before the years end.
He has many reputable resources to help ready your house for sale. He has helped with 7 home transactions for myself and family members. Highly recommend!
I am an investor and have bought and sold a number of homes through him and he also helped my daughter buy her first home. I count on Brian's honesty and integrity going through the process as well as his wealth of knowledge of the market and construction in general. Brian always comes through! I highly recommend working with Brian to buy or sell your home!
Every experience I’ve had with Jim has not only been pleasant, but also high quality. He makes knowledgeable suggestions, and offers input I didn’t think of during a high stress process. He has definitely made buying a home, as well as selling a home, a more enjoyable experience because of his genuine desire to help people. You won’t be disappointed with his service.
His dedication to his clients is unparalleled. He will never let you buy something that doesn't suit you. He works day and night to make sure your deal gets done! It was a great experience finally getting to see what 20+ years of clients had told me when they said "your dad is the BEST!"
Our home was sold in two days. He was very professional and we greatly appreciate the service we received. We would definitely recommend this firm for any buyer or seller.
As a first time buyer, I was completely clueless, and Jim made the process so easy. He always had my best interests at heart, and didn’t want me to just buy any house. He was easy to reach, and was able to work with my very short time frame. Would highly recommend him!
He is very professional, kind, honest and very patient. I will highly recommend him to any of my friends or family looking for a new home.
He was patient, well-informed, and always had our best interest in mind. He helped us find the right home and was involved in every step of the way. If you are looking for a realtor that is invested in helping you find your next home don't look any further- call Brian!
He is knowledgeable, patient and easy to reach when we need him. He goes out of his way to make buying or selling your home as easy and comfortable as possible.
Jim has so much knowledge of the business and shared all the good and bad things about the houses so that we felt we were able to make very educated decisions. He was always quick to answer our phone calls/emails/texts and help us get scheduled with showings as quickly as possible which was necessary in this hot market. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor! I feel our first experience with home buying went very well, even during a pandemic!
His professionalism and attention to detail is top notch and he treats every situation throughout the buying/selling process (good or bad) with an even keeled approach to provide the best possible outcome. If you are looking for help with your real estate needs, Jim is your guy!
Jim was instrumental in our success in receiving top dollar for our home. For anyone selling their home…. LISTEN to Jim. His knowledge of what customers in our price range wanted in a home were spot on. Since we had not purchased a home in 20 years his knowledge of the real estate rules and regulations was invaluable. We had many questions that he patiently answered or directed us to the bank or title company etc when it was their question to answer. Jim listened to our story and understood our pride in our home and communicated that to potential buyers through various media and promotion. He understands the housing market and how to price and stage your house appropriately. As a result, our home was in contract in less than 24 hours after it came on the market. We were very grateful for Jim’s help and recommend him to our friends and family.
He did an excellent job on all aspects of the sale. I highly recommend him.
Jim was very professional and we were very comfortable working with him. Jim returned all my phone calls or emails the same day and we never felt neglected. We are pleased to recommend Jim Staten to anyone that is looking to buy or sell a home. He was great to work with and if we need an agent again we will be contacting him. He is our first choice real estate agent and second time working with Jim, both buying and selling a home.

Would definitely recommend to others looking for a helpful, knowledgeable, low pressure realtor.

Jim had taken me to dozens of homes in multiple cities and times during the week and weekends. Jim was very knowledgable of every home and neighborhood we visited. When we finally picked a house, Jim was very involved in the negotiation to ensure that we got the best price. When its time to sell and buy my retirement home, I will be calling Jim Staten!
Very professional and thorough. Kept us up-to-date all along the way. Would highly recommend Jim to everyone.

As new home buyers, we knew little about the buying process. He was great at providing information and making sure we were informed. Brian was honest and direct with us which we appreciated so much! He not only pointed out the great things about the house but also what needed work. He also was very flexible which was great with our busy work schedule. In the end, we found a great home and we truly could not have done with without him. 10/10 would recommend to anyone- and I have!
