As out-of-town (out-of-country) purchasers, we had no information on the property market or the processes involved in purchasing real estate in Cincinnati. Jim led us through every step, giving highly numerical information whenever requested on market trends and comparables in the different areas we were looking at. His whole performance was excellent. As well as being totally professional, he is wonderfully personable.When we sell the property in Cincinnati, we hope Jim will help us once again.

Jim is the most professional agent we have ever worked with. Actually, he is the most professional and most responsive person we have worked with in any field. No one is better at communications. I can't remember ever calling his cell phone and not getting through to him immediately. Anything and everything we asked him to help with, he did. He is extremely knowledgeable and if he doesn't know an answer, he'll get it and get back to you within a day. He is always in a great mood, always smiling, and always courteous. On a one to 5 scale, he is a 10. We would use him again and have referred him to others.

My husband and I were very pleased with our Huff Realtor, Jim Basquette. With Jim's help, we were able to sell our house quickly and for full asking price. In today's market, that says alot. We could not have asked for anything more. Jim was quick to answer our many questions and was always available when we needed his assistance. Many thanks to Jim and Huff Realty! Jeanne & Kevin Bartmess - Harrison via email Jim was wonderful to work with and very responsive to all of my needs. He is a good communicator and always kept me up to date on what was going on. I would recommend him to anyone.

Early on Jim embraced all the Power Marketing principles found in my 3 books and I am so proud to have such an outstanding consumer advocate as one of my earliest subscribers. Because of his focus on what serves the consumer and gets the highest price, Jim stands above the crowd and aligns himself with the precious few who know their stuff, invest in their future, and serve the public with marketing techniques that make them extraordinary. Let Jim dazzle you with competence and performance. My highest recommendation

Jim brings expertise as both an agent and a real estate investor to his business relationships. We found him very responsive (unlike some agents), knowledgable, but with the flexibility to listen to our ideas and suggestions. We were also pleased with his skills as a negotiator, and with his ability to anticipate our preferences and priorities. He comes with our highest recommendation.

My family contracted Jim to sell our mother's home after she passed away. We had another agent listing our home, which this agent grossly overpriced, for 6 months, and then we thankfully found Jim. Myself and 3 siblings were instantly impressed with his honesty about what our listing price should be, as well as his marketing strategies. We appreciated his honesty and knowledge about what the home could realistically sell for and he was spot on what he said we'd probably get out of it. His pictures for the website were excellent - and he had a great eye for how to showcase the home photographically. Most of all, I loved his style of communication. He almost always answered our calls, and when he couldn't, he returned the calls or emails immediately. He also was very informative about feedback from showings, the selling process once we had a bid, etc. We would highly recommend Jim to our family and friends who need a real estate agent in the future.

Jim Basquette really saved my financial life by handling the sale of a home in Cincinnati that I had previously occupied, then rented out after I moved out of state. I could not act as a responsible landlord or seller from this far away, and Jim handled everything I needed via phone and email. In the flat Cincinnati market, Jim managed to help me sell a home that had become a financial liability....thanks, Jim and crew!

Jim helped us sell our condo in a horrible market. We were the first condo sold (out of about 30 on the market) in our community in months! I give full credit to Jim's abilities to market and sell home along with Rita's abilities to stage a home. Bravo!

Jim was the listing agent for a property that I represented the buyers. The transaction could not have gone more smoothly. Jim is a very conscientious and professional realtor and I look forward to working with him on many more sales.

Our large historic home had been listed intermittently with two experienced local realtors for nearly two years before we chose Jim Basquette to market it. Up until that time we’d received no offers. Immediately upon accepting our listing, Jim introduced a “stager” who guided us in highlighting the houses’ significant features. Jim took eighty-five photos, interior and exterior, of the house to display its full charm when posted on a variety of web sites. Less than ten weeks after listing we accepted an offer only 1.5% below our asking price and as much as 15% higher than outcomes projected by other agents. Jim’s guidance through the negotiating and closing process was calm and insightful. We’ve been impressed throughout by Jim’s communication skills, his technological ability, delightful personality and energy.

No one is more Thorough than Jim Basquette when it comes to listing a home on the market. Jim gets it when it comes to making your home visible on the internet. From the high quality photos, to the massive amount of links that Jim connects your home listing to, his work is at the top of the field. He also is one of the most down to earth, easy to work with realtors out there. I see it not only in my dealings with Jim but also with the many others I have seen him work with. Jim is constantly recognized as one of the top agents around and he proves it every day by his work ethic, great personality and the results he produces for his clients!!

After our house had been on the market for a year, we hired Jim as our new Realtor. He did his homework and explained to us that our pricing was the reason that our house wouldn't sell in the current market and location. The decision was up to us, but we decided to trust him. Jim took great pictures of our home and even helped us stage it at no additional cost. He kept in appropriate contact and always responded to emails and phone calls promptly. My wife and I felt completely secure with Jim's candid nature and ability to answer any and all questions, following up on the ones he needed to. When our house sold after just a few weeks, Jim was instrumental in helping us negotiate both the price and the repairs to the home. After the sale, Jim went the extra mile in helping us find a place to stay temporarily until we moved out of state.

Jim provides terrific marketing and a professional and personable approach. We were able to sell our home in a very difficult market within a reasonable amount of time. He carefully considered our perspective and was very attentive to details. Jim is a good communicator, and always responded promptly to questions or concerns. We are totally satisfied!

Jim is a real go getter! I met Jim just a couple of years ago and had the pleasure of assisting him with a transaction involving our two companies. Jim is patient, thorough, and responsive to client needs. Our agents hold Jim in high regard and love to do business with him.

Jim was able to sell my home in 49 days after it was listed for about a year by another top agent without reducing the price. High end homes, were not really selling in this market, but Jim's marketing, exposure and great photos made it stand out and sell.I listed a second home with him and it sold in 6 days. I highly recommend him because of his expertise, integrity, work ethic and communication skills R.C Lintz - Palisades, Delhi Township via hand written noteOverall, Jim has been wonderful! Great experience, realistic, professional, friendly, and loved the home-stager. We wondered how big of a difference that would actually make, but they sold our home quickly, so it must have made a petty big impact. Great communication! He was easy to reach and got back to us asap, which is a big deal, especially when your talking hundreds of thousands, the quicker you know, the faster you can get it off your mind and move on with life, literally.

Working with Jim was a great experience. Buying my first home was a rough first experience but Jim made me feel like I was his only client. I felt like he was available anytime even at a moments notice."
Allison Lawhorn via email
Jim Basquette is the best, most professional realtor my wife and I have ever dealt with. We've bought and/or sold homes about eight to ten times in the last decade alone, in Germany and the United States, and Mr. Basquette stands easily head and shoulders above every real estate agent or broker with whom we have had any dealings.
Job Brown - East Price Hill via email
I would recommend Mr. Basquette to anyone, and I don't think I would be willing to buy or sell a home in the Cincinnati area without his help. I can't praise him highly enough. We are indebted to him.
