Mr. Pappas and his team definitely know their business. We listed our home with him and within 24 hrs we had 6 showings and 1 offer. Their marketing strategies were put to work to our advantage. I will recommend Jim over any other realtor - and I speak from experience (we had our house listed with another agent for 6 months and got zero offers. A common friend recommended Jim and we were so blessed to work with him!
We worked with Shane Kuhns on this transaction; however, his name was not listed in the drop down. Shane was very attentive to our needs through the entire process, remained in constant communication, and we could not have been more pleased with how everything was handled.
I actually worked with Shane Kuhns and would certainty recommend him again.
If the measurement of your Listing Agent is the end result, then Jim Pappas won the game. Once we signed the Seller's contract with Jim Pappas, our house was listed on the market within a week. Within the first three listing days, we had eleven home showings and received six offers on the house. On the fourth listing day, we accepted an offer that was substantially above the listing price of the house. Not only was the listing price a great offer, but also, he negotiated to see that there was minimal waiting time between when we accepted the offer and when we officially sold the house on the actual settlement date. From the beginning, in interviewing and assessing other realtors in the local Lancaster County real estate market, Jim Pappas by far had the superior credentials. He had a proven sales record of performance as indicated in Jim receiving multiple awards for multiple years as the #1 top performing Realtor. He has excelled in sales even beyond his local area as demonstrated by his receipt of an award at the regional level when competing with other realtors, which represented a 19 state geographical area. In addition to his exceptional sales skills, he possesses a strong background of experience and expertise in negotiations. His strong negotiating skills were extremely important when he became engaged in negotiating the best offer for our house. His past experience and background from owning his own travel agency and negotiating deals with airlines and hotel chains across the globe equips him with an exceptional skill set that other realtors simple lack. Another outstanding quality of Jim's, involves his strong strategic marketing and overall marketing skills. He truly knows how to make your house stand out from all of the other houses on the market. His ads stand out and pop out from the others by the color photography and exceptional quality of the pictures and videos that he markets in every marketing venue that exists from websites to printed media. Also, we have to comment on his personalized service style. When you call his sales office and ask to meet or speak with Jim Pappas, you will get him and not be handed over to another agent on his team unless that is what you requested. He has great communication skills. He always responds in a courteous, prompt, and professional manner. Last of all, it is easy to tell that he is driven by his passion for his work that leads almost naturally to a quality outcome for his clients. Obviously, we believe that he is among the best realtors and leaders in the real estate industry and highly endorse him as the realtor to choose.
Professional, Personable and Honest!
When we met Jim and Paul, they offered us help and they were not even our realtors at the time. We met while we were at dinner and going over things to try and understand what we were doing because the realtor we did have was not as helpful as we hoped as first time buyers. Without any question, they answered our questions and offered guidance so my husband and I decided that we wanted to work with them instead. Our move was part of a relocation and within the first 24 hours they made more progress and offered advise than in them we received within the week we had been looking. They went to see a property we liked even though we were two hours away, sent us pics, advise and comps immediately. For not being in the area the process went so smooth because of Jim and Paul. They always communicated with us and spoke to everyone on our behalf to ensure we were best informed and understood everything that was happening. They also gave us advice that was best for us, regardless of how it affected them. They were so knowledgeable on what to do and how to handle everything that came our way, even things that they may not have dealt with before. Ultimately it was thanks to them that we were able to close and get into our house in time for our moving truck to arrive despite unbelievable obstacles. They were a true voice for us in this process and we are so thankful for them. We will without a doubt by every house we purchase from them. Thank you so much for all you've done for us! If you want to team that works for you is going to get you into a home that you love choose Jim and Paul!
While I can share a lot of positive stories about Jim and his team, this story sums it all up best.... I recall finding a house that I thought was perfect in May of 2016. Jim pointed out some issues for the house that would be a problem for a growing family. Because of Jim's input, we did not put an offer in a house. We looked at about 50 houses after that, and Jim was patient with us. Jim found us our dream house, which turned out to be in a very different location then the home I would have purchased 14 months sooner and regretted! Clearly he has years of local experience and YOUR best interests in mind. Highly Recommended.

Thank you for providing a truly exceptional buying experience! It was a joy working with you on the purchase of our first home. We absolutely love our new home, and you made the transition as painless and worry-free as possible!
We met Jim through another agent in another part of the state who had shared with us that Jim was one of the best in the business and the "leading agent in the area". After my wife and I had the opportunity to meet Jim and work with him, those comments were grossly understated! We felt an immediate connection to Jim because he took the time to truly understand our situation, our needs, our preferences, the reasons we were looking to make a move, etc. His knowledge of the market was unlike anything we have ever seen before, which proved incredibly beneficial as we finally found what we were looking for. One of the things that impressed us the most was that he wasn't afraid to share his true thoughts/feelings and tell us what we needed to hear......which not only was greatly appreciated, but ultimately helped us make the right decisions. Jim was very responsive to us whenever we had a question or needed some guidance on something, and about as professional of person as there is! One final thing that truly was the "icing on the cake": Well after we were living in our home, Jim came back to us and helped us immensely in dealing with a sticky situation in ways that I don't think anyone would have expected! We were absolutely blown away......it was important to him that we were happy and well-taken care of. A true professional and gentleman that we would highly recommend to anyone!
