Testimonials

"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."
