Testimonials

 Jim and Kathy have helped us buy 3 houses and sell 2 houses in the Bonita area over the past 6 years.  Each time they gave 150% to help us find the house we were looking for and to sell the one we were previously in.  We started with a smaller house and then realized that our children and grandkids like to come and visit and we didn’t have enough room so we purchased a larger home.   As the grandkids started school they weren’t able to be their as much so we decided to find a smaller house.   Because we were trying to downsize we didn’t know what we wanted, Jim and Kathy were always willing to look at different communities, styles and prices of houses until we decided what we wanted.  I can’t say enough about the professional side of our relationship with them.   They were very knowledgeable and patient when it came to helping us look for our new house.    The needs of their clients is and always will be their first priority.   But I feel the most important thing about working with them is the lifelong friendship we have developed with them.   We look forward to going back every winter to spend time with them.  We even got them to watch a NDSU Bison football championship with us!   I highly recommend Jim and Kathy to help anyone who wishes to buy or sell a house in the Naples, Bonita,Fort Myers area.  Thanks again.

When a decision was made to look into the purchase of real-estate, Jim Murdoch was the first realtor to get in contact. After a few minutes on the phone with him, it was clear that I was dealing with someone professional who could answer my questions and reassure me of the uncertainties as a first time buyer in the US. I was not disappointed and all went extremely well.  Jim and Kathy provided excellent service for the rental and care of the property and also great communication as to any developing situations. They are honest, trustworthy with outstanding devotion to their job and clients. They are simply a great team.

That is not all, they also just helped with the sale of this same property with the same dedication and I intend to faithfully remain with them for my next endeavour. They are stuck with me.  🙂

We finally found our dream home in Florida thanks to Jim and Kathy Murdoch.  We knew we wanted a home in Naples, Florida, but like everyone else we were looking blindly at properties with very little knowledge of the area. Jim’s inside knowledge of the market and knowledge of coastal living helped us make a very informed decision of the perfect property for us. When Jim and Kathy showed up in our home town to take us to dinner, I knew they were dedicated realtors with the intention of looking out for the best interests of their clients.  I could not recommend them highly enough. They are first class all the way.

Jim and his team have been a pleasure to work with and thoroughly knowledgeable of the Naples area.  Beyond finding our new house and doing an exceptional job of negotiating for us, he’s been a tremendous resource in recommending local contractors and suppliers we can trust to give quality service and value.

 Jim Murdoch helped us find our paradise in Southwest Florida and gave us top-notch service.  Honesty, integrity and professionalism describe Jim to a “T”.

Jim accompanied us every step of the way to make sure we made the choice that was best for us. We could have visited 50 houses and he would have said:  “No problem”.  Jim is a man of respect and honesty who bends over backwards to ensure total client satisfaction.

After more than a year of talking to agents in Florida from our home in Toronto, we lucked upon Jim Murdoch.  Up until this point we thought we would have no luck finding a place. Most of our efforts were wasted on agents that took our information and criteria, inviting us down to Florida to review their offerings only to find out they did not pay any attention to what we wanted in a home – a wasted trip.  Even worse were those agents that spent time on the phone with us taking down all the details of our requirements only to never call back!   Then came Jim.  He listened intently to what we wanted and within a relatively short period of time had a list of great properties that fit our criteria and our price range.  We booked a trip to Florida and Jim gave us his undivided attention for 5 full days while we reviewed the list ( a few more than one time!).  We purchased a condo on that trip and are thrilled with our choice.  Jim’s attention did not end there. He took us around our new area showing us where the best restaurants were, where the markets were and has continued to this day to be our “reference” source.  We highly recommend Jim as a knowledgable and caring real estate agent!

Buying two properties in Naples and trying to manage them from California would have been impossible without Kathy and Jim’s help. They helped us throughout the whole process: from finding the right properties, to buying, remodeling and renting them. They even found renters for our condo before we were done remodeling! We don’t think we could have done it without them.

Jim and Kathleen Murdoch are professional, hard working, honest, and knowledgeable realtors.  We contacted them through their website when we were looking for a home in Florida. They called, invited us to Naples, and sent many listings for us to preview.

We were immediately impressed with their friendliness and genuine kindness.

When we arrived in Naples, the Murdochs had lined up many homes for us to see.  They went over and above to introduce us to the many wonderful amenities of beautiful Naples.

We are grateful to Jim and Kathleen for their guidance and integrity in facilitating our home purchase from start to finish…and we enjoyed the entire experience!

We flew down from St. Louis to spend two days looking at property in the Ft. Myers/Naples area.  We meet Jim Murdoch at our hotel and he had both days completely organized with a perfect mix of property to look at.  Jim knew the market very well and was able to guide and advise us on the many listings we looked at.  After our trip we picked a location we wanted to purchase.   Jim was very professional and helpful in the negotiations and closing.  I would highly recommend Jim to anyone looking to purchase property in the southwest Florida region.  He is the only realtor I would use in this market!

Jim and Kathy are not just realtors they have become friends. As for the realtor part we would never have bought our dream house in TREVISO BAY without Jim. He was the person that suggested STOCK homes which we would never have considered. They also do a very good job of selling our previous home receiving almost list value. Jim stays on top of the markets and keeps you posted of any possible opportunities. Whether it is a property or rental opportunity he keeps you informed of all possibilities. We cannot thank them enough for leading us to the house of our dreams.

“We have been in Naples, from Italy,  the first time three years ago,  looking for a house where to spend our retirement and we found Jim and Kathy. We weren’t very determined to buy but Jim showed us houses suitable for us even if he was almost sure we wouldn’t have bought one.

Three years later we were more determined and he showed us, one more time, with Franciscan patience, many other houses until we found the right one. The job Kathy and Jim did for us continued  even after we closed on our home, when, normally, other Realtors would leave you. Jim and Kathy, instead, looked after us for any needs we had after the closing.

We aren’t US citizens, so we don’t know all the  local procedures and habits and Jim and Kathy helped us to cope with all our needs, starting from the pass we needed to enter our community to switching electricity and water into our name and arranging for the home to be painted and cleaned. As well as helping us to find good companies for maintenance on the home and furniture purchases. Their help  reached the level as to pay in advance for our painters, electric bill, cleaning and more, on our behalf, because we couldn’t do it easily from Italy. This is much more than people can ask for as far as professionalism, it is very close to a good friendship. We have not enough words to say thank you to Jim and Kathy and we couldn’t recommend them highly enough.”
