|TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
If you are reading this letter, I imagine you are considering placing your trust in Jim Longstreth, and I take great pleasure in encouraging you to do so.
Having lived all of my adult life renting small apartments in big cities (New York, Buenos Aires and Madrid), I knew absolutely nothing about buying a home. My head would spin when I talked with friends who had been through it. I could hardly grasp all the new vocabulary thrown at me, but what really scared me were the angst-ridden tales almost everyone told of their experiences buying a home. It was enough to put the fear of God in me, and it did.
Friends of mine steered me in Jim’s direction, assuring me, based on their own experience, that he was the best in the business. Even so, I first walked into his office feeling a bit queasy and skeptical. Real-estate agents do not exactly have the best reputation, and my case was further complicated by the fact that I had been living abroad for so long and had no active credit history in the States.
My apprehensions were completely unfounded. From the get-go, Jim won me over, both professionally and personally. His even keel, positive approach and expert advice made what most people describe as hell seem smooth and easy! We looked at a lot of houses in a few days. It did not take him long to pinpoint exactly what I was looking for, in my price range, and bring it to my attention. I’ve been grateful to him ever since the day he first showed me the house I now call home. But, the battle had just begun, and I have to say Jim handled it masterfully. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be here right now.
There were obstacles and times when it seemed like it would not happen, but Jim was like a rock, and I clung to him. I put my faith in him, and it paid off big time. You see, Jim is more than just a real-estate agent; he’s community-minded and he’s one of the good guys. You can trust him and he won’t lead you astray.
Therefore, it is with heartfelt enthusiasm that I recommend Jim Longstreth and Your Neighborhood Realty if you are looking to buy or sell a home. He is the best!

|"Choosing a real estate agent is not a simple task, nor one to be taken lightly. Hence why we would like to express our pleasure and satisfaction with Jim Longstreth of Your Neighborhood Realty, who represented us in our recent purchase of a single-family home. Jim guided us through the entire process, from loan prequalification to searching and viewing houses to making the offer and closing the deal. We credit him with a smooth home-buying experience and working with us tirelessly until we were satisfied. Jim is savvy, personable, patient, hard-working, jovial and knows the local real estate market inside and out. We never could have gotten our dream home without him. We are beyond pleased with Jim and his expertise and we will recommend him to everyone. And should the occasion arise to purchase another home, we would not hesitate to call on him again for our real estate needs."

|My husband and I moved to the St. Pete area from Phoenix and were looking for a home in the area. We had been looking for a property for about two months ,to no avail. When we were referred to Jim Longstreth at "Your Neighborhood Realty". We told him what we wanted and found a home that afternoon. It is exactly what we wanted.
When we needed some work done we again went to Jim for a handyman. The handyman ended up doing such a great job and we had such a good rapport with him that he was the best man at our wedding,which by the way Jim & his wife attended.
We cannot say enough about the level of service that we received from Jim Longstreth and he is the definition of 'Your Neighborhood Realty".
Thank You Jim,
|We originally decided to list our house with Jim Longstreth of Your Neighborhood Realty because we felt he knew Historic Kenwood better than any other realtor. However, Jim proved to be far more than a knowledgeable agent. He was friendly and honest from day one, and we immediately knew we had an experienced advocate on our side.
Jim was aggressive and active in marketing our home through various media and, even in a difficult market, we saw a steady stream of interested buyers almost immediately.
What really sets Jim apart, though, is that he goes above and beyond expectations. Whenever we needed him—no matter how trivial the question or dilemma—Jim was there to help us with things other agents probably wouldn’t consider. He made it a smooth experience from listing to closing.
We couldn’t be happier about the outcome in listing with Jim, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him. We’ll definitely take advantage of his expertise and attentive service in the future.
|Our favorite saying is "Jim should be sainted". As a real estate agent myself, I was the buyer from hell. "Buyers are liars" wasn't coined casually and although we researched and very much knew exactly what we wanted we didn't have a clue but realized Jim Longstreth was a knowledgable and trustworthy broker. Jim patiently catered to all our demands but offered "outside the box" suggestons we reluctantly considered. Then 3 months, 55 houses and 3 offers later he found us the perfect house and exactly the opposite of our edicts. Thank you Jim for your patience, perserverance and compassion. Thank you for finding us our dream house and remaining our friend.|
