If I could give Jim 10 stars, I would.

My wife and I worked with Jim 20 years ago and remembered what a pleasant experience we had. He helped us both buy and sell homes in Grove City and Galloway. We sold my parents’ house and needed help on various things since there was not a will. Jim’s keen eye for details and global knowledge made this transaction seamless. Jim is so personable and knowledgeable that I consider him a Nostradamus in this business. Wow, what a superlative experience overall! Thank you, Jim from myself and all 7 siblings!

He also showed interest in our personal life and what we had going on in our day to day.

Kerrie Faini McKendry (Seller)

Jim was so helpful!

Molly Carter

For years I have heard stories about how awful it is to complete the process of first time home buying.

From finding a realtor, seeing homes, making offers, and finishing the process. Jim made this simple. He was helpful every step of the way. Calling to check in on how things were going on my end or even taking the time to explain things to me as this was my first time. I would recommend Jim to anyone looking to buy a home. He has excellent people skills and truly works hard to make sure you’re satisfied. Thanks again!

Ryan Fultz (Home buyer )

Jim was very professional during our house purchase.

We made an offer and were in contact in few hours! Great job!

Vera M

Brian was great and on things immediately when they needed to happen.

He made the process more smooth than I could have asked for!

Kameron Sorensen

As a first time home buyer, I would highly recommend Jim.

He is knowledgeable in the market and was able to give us incredible advice on how to go through the process of buying a house. In addition, he is very knowledgeable on what different houses need in terms of immediate and long term updates, which is very useful when look at homes. Jim is great!

Jordan Bender (Buyer)

Jim was the perfect Realtor for us.

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!!

Christi Hall (Chaplain)

Welcome to Columbus, Jill and Cliff - You're going to love it here!

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.

Jim worked very hard with us to get our sale accomplished.

We appreciate everything he did and know you will too!

Jodi L. Wallace (Seller)

Moving in from out of town, I wasn't sure what city I wanted to settle in.

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!

C.Mondon (BUyer)

Congratulations to our sellers, Julie and Darren!

It was wonderful to work with you again!


What's your home worth?


We interviewed four realtors.

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.

Megan Schuster

We ❤ seeing these smiles on closing day!


Jim was fantastic every step of the way.

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 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.


He has a lot of experience and knowledge to walk us through the entire process.

He was able to help with the number of offers and helped us with all of the process of escalations etc. . He kept things moving in a positive direction.

Shatara and Antoine Beasley (Buyer )

Jim was very patient but more importantly.

..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!

Mark Hall

This being our first house, we had a lot of questions and concerns.

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!

Christopher Goodrich (Buyer)

It's such a great experience working with Jim.

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.

Harold E Rowe (Retired)

Jim, is wonderful to work with!

We have worked with him on buying/selling our first home and finding our forever home...each experience has been great. He’s so informative and stays on top of everything!!! I would recommend him to anyone. He is so knowledgeable, which helped us feel at ease when we were feeling anxious or had any concerns. Great Job!!!

Brian was extremely patient with us with the home buying process.

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!

Nathan Brickner (Surface Transportation Engineer)

After 20 years of living in our home we needed to move.

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.

K J Hargraves

Thank you, Ethan and Brooke, for choosing me to help you buy your first home.

Wishing you many happy years in your beautiful new home!


Jim was amazing to work with.

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.

Natalie Dunn & Sam Billings (First Time Homebuyers)

Congratulations Jim!

My husband and I have had a few real estate transactions in the past few years and due to our properties not being in the Columbus area we have had to use a couple different realtors.

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!

Brooklyn Fondriest (Social Worker)

Jim was great to work with and provided solid advice throughout.

I have had the pleasure of working with Jim Staten on two separate home sales transactions - both on the buying and selling ends of the deals (8 years between the two).

As a buyer, Jim helped me find the perfect home and I couldn’t have been happier with his guidance on the transaction. As a seller, there was no doubt I would work with Jim again to have him assist me in finding the next owner for my home - I wanted to sell to someone who would enjoy it as much as I did, as well as realize the returns on my investment. Jim takes the time to listen to the needs of both the seller and the buyer, and I’m proud to call him my realtor of choice. Thanks again, Jim.

Jim has helped us successfully buy and/or sell 4 houses in Hilliard over the years.

He is very knowledgeable and gives great advice on pricing, home staging, and negotiating a contract. Whenever I have contacted him with questions, he responds quickly. I highly recommend Jim for any real estate transaction!

Jim helped us with buying our first home 11 years ago and 2 months ago he helped us sell that one and buy our forever home.

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.

I have known Jim for several years and he has assisted me with several real estate transactions.

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.

First time home buyer and I had no idea where to start.

Was referred to Brian by a coworker and Brian made the process so simple! I knew nothing about buying a house and Brian walked me through it all and any question I had about the process was as simple as calling him to have him answer it. Enthusiastic, outgoing, and easy to work with. Thanks Brian! Will be referring anyone and everyone to you

"Ive known Jim through our kids for several years and saw his signs all over the neighborhood and most of them had "SOLD" on the top. Now I know why. His knowledge, professionalism and genuineness was evident throughout my sale. I also used him to buy my new home. It had been 20 yrs since I was in the house market so really felt like a first timer. His communication throughout the process was top- notch and made us feel like we weren't taking on what can be a daunting task. He provided critical hints and suggestions in his pre- listing walk through of my house that helped me get it ready for sale. We had a buyer within 48 hours! Excellent choice and I highly recommended him for buying and/or selling. Also kudos to his wife for the excellent photos in the listing."

"Jim was honest, enthusiastic, hard working, and did what he said he would do. He responded in a timely manner to our questions and concerns. It was obvious that he listened to what we had to say concerning the sell of our home. He communicated our goals to the prospective buyers in an up front and truthful manner. There were no surprises in the total process from listing to closing as Jim kept us apprised of each step along the way. If we were to purchase another home he would be the agent we would select."
