What clients are saying...

“Jim was recommended to us by a family friend and we are so happy that they recommended him. Jim's patience while we searched for a new house was impeccable and he was very knowledgeable about the positive and negative attributes of different houses. We really appreciated that he would do research for extra information if he didn't have it on hand and he also made suggestions on what house would suit us. We would recommend Jim to anyone looking for a new house! Thank you!"

- Domi & Phil

“The pleasure has indeed been ours working with Jim - we have truly benefitted from his valuable experience and insight. We look forward to doing more business with Jim in the future.”

- Nneka & Desmond

“My fiancée and myself were looking at a new house, Jim was recommended by a close friend. He did not disappoint. He understands the needs of his clients and gave us a realistic view of the housing market with regards to our needs. He even ended up finding a house for us that we had overlooked. Trust worthy, respectful and understanding, a true gentlemen looking after You first.”

- Simon & Shannara

“Recently (June 2023) Jim was the agent selling my deceased sister’s property. This was a difficult time for me and Jim made the whole transaction easy, manageable and quick. He priced the house perfectly, answered any questions with such patience and knowledge. He recommended both a cleaner and mover who I used and was very satisfied with both. Our executor from Montreal said he was very informed and led the sale without a hitch. They would recommend to use Jim again. Thanks Jim, I appreciate all your hard work in making this sale as easy and comfortable for me.”

- Carol

“I moved to this unspeakably cold city 11 years ago.
I walked into a house that Jim was selling, and I thought, this house is terrible but this guy is great!
I asked him to find me a proper house.
Jim cheerfully walked me though more than 30 houses! No joke.
Apologies! but we finally found something that worked for me.
It has been a great house but of course, things change.
So when I decided to sell, who do you think I called?
5 Stars :)"

- Phil

“Jim has been a pleasure to work with for both selling and purchasing. His advice has been helpful, he is always quick to respond (way beyond our expectations) and truly cares about his clients' best interests. To say that he has gone above and beyond for us, especially with the purchase of our new home, would be an understatement. We would absolutely recommend any of our family and friends work with Jim given the opportunity. Thank you, Jim, for everything! Rating 5 stars! ”

- Lisa & Jake

“We have worked with James for many years buying and selling houses in Winnipeg and surrounding areas. He is great to work with, well organized, and went the extra mile (many extra miles in our case) to help us find a home. He is knowledgeable, prompt, trustworthy but the thing that really stands out is his honest appraisal of the pros and cons of different properties. We have recommended him to others in the past and would do it again without hesitation.”

- Jonathan & Meagan

“I appreciated Jim’s prompt and expert service - always available in a timely way to answer questions and offer advice. I also appreciated his kindness and understanding. The included service of a staging consultation was very uselful and I’m sure it made a significant difference in the speed with which my house sold. He is a trustworthy man and I would work with Jim again.”

- Kelley

“Our daughter was looking for a condo so we were helping out. The other realtors just showed up, opened up the property and didn’t show much interest. Then Jim shows us one, gives us information we didn’t even know to ask for as we didn’t have any knowledge about condo purchases. So we asked him to be our realtor to show us other condos. He is very intelligent, informative and if he doesn’t know something, he will very shortly. Definitely would recommend his services for buying or selling again. Highly recommended out of 5 stars we’d give him a 10!”

- Norm, Bev & April

“I’ve known Jim for a very long time, he’s helped me with buying and selling my homes. He is very deligent and professional at what he does. He goes above and beyond to help me with my homes that’s why I don’t have to think twice when my friends and family ask me if I know any good real estate agent. I definitely recommend and reference him to anyone I know. He’s the most amazing and kind hearted agent and friend I’ve known. Thanks Jim!”

- Nikki

- Kelley

"Being new to Winnipeg I had to trust Jim and his knowledge completely when looking for a new home. He was patient, professional and thorough during our 2 month intensive search. In the end he found the perfect house for my family and was with us every step of the way."

- Jeff

"This is the third time Jim has worked with my family. He's always friendly, upbeat, and professional. This time around, he helped my parents sell their favorite home in nearly 60 years of marriage. It was bordering on traumatic and his calm, experienced guidance eased serious anxiety for them...and by extension for my siblings and I. I recommend him whole heartedly."

- Sue

"Jim was pivotal in securing my first home. Although it took some time, he was constantly available to provide expert advise and the patience I needed to make the right purchase. From the initial meeting, I knew I had found the right realtor and sometime later I signed the papers on my first house. I would strongly recommend Jim to anyone looking to buy or sell here. Thanks for all the help Jim!"

- Jason

"Thanks to Jim I was able to find the perfect house. He steered me away from what would most definitely been a much less pleasant experience. He was able to get me into see a number of houses as soon as they came on the market. And helped me get the house to start my new adventure. Thanks so much."

- Pam

"As first-time home buyers, my wife and I were pretty overwhelmed when we started looking at house listings, but Jim really simplified the process. He was ALWAYS available when we had questions or concerns, and he made the process of finding our perfect home way less overwhelming. He's a genuinely nice guy! We couldn't be happier in our new house, and we'd recommend Jim to anyone."  

- Michael & Jenny

"It is great to see that the sale of 819 Coventry Road is coming to a conclusion. I want to thank you for all of the support you have given us during the sale process. For sure, I will be recommending your services to our friends and my clients whenever the need arises. You did a great job throughout the process."  

- John

"As a first-time home buyer, I didn't know what to expect when I decided to buy a condo. Jim walked me through the process of buying a home and patiently answered my endless questions. His knowledge and expertise were very reassuring. With his connections in the industry, Jim was also able to provide me with contact information for a real estate lawyer and mortgage broker. After my offer was accepted, Jim made sure that I had received all of the relevant condo documents, as well as doing a second walkthrough with me to check that the condition of the condo was as stated in the documents. From start to finish, Jim turned the stressful experience of buying my first home into an enjoyable one". 

- Heather

"It was a pleasant pleasure to work with Jim and thanks for all the the support during the whole process". 

- Dino

"We needed to purchase a home in a short amount of time. Didn't know exactly what we were looking for to meet our families needs, however Jim was patient, kind, and answered all of our questions, and all of the 1000's of questions our toddler had, with a smile on his face. Thank you for assisting us in finding the perfect home".  

- Amanda & Allyson

"What we were looking for wasn't on the market so...Jim went and found it, listed it, and sold it to us. Couldn't ask for more!" 

- Teresa & Murray

"Jim helped us sell our house, quickly and for the price range we were looking for. Jim was very professional and available when we had questions or needed to meet with him. The write up on our house was done very well which brought a lot of people to look at our house. We were impressed!" 

- Ryan & Allison

"I was very comfortable having Jim walk me through the process of first time selling a home. He balanced offering suggestions, with listening to my thoughts from everything to staging to price. I appreciate his experience and insight". 

- Bre

"Jim committed several times a week for a month to showing us homes and as we began to tire and become less picky he really helped to ensure we didn't give in and select the wrong house. He wasn't helping us just to make a sale - he really wanted it to be right for us - and it is".

- Debra & Vern

"We're so glad Jim was recommended to us. He is very knowledgeable and willing to work around our crazy schedules. He was even available when we were having troubles after moving. His advise on all things real-estate was much appreciated and we're very happy he helped us find our awesome house".

- Amanda & Cael

"Jim was great! He was knowledgeable about our buying and selling process and gave us the tools to be successful in our sale & purchase of our new home. Jim responded quickly to any communication we sent". 

- Kevin & Michele

"We found Jim to be very friendly, approachable, accessible and knowledgeable. He was very helpful from day one with regards to recommending renovations that would help with the presentation and sale of the house right through to the final transaction". 

- Maureen

"Excellent! Seamless! We couldn't have picked a better agent to help us with the sale and purchase of our home. He was very professional, prepared and available when we needed him. He walked us through all the steps to sell our home and found us our dream home to move to. Thanks Jim!" 

- Dave & Michelle

"He was a pleasure to work with. He is polite, not pushy and very professional. He is what you would call a gentleman." 

- Jeanine

"James did an awesome job at marketing our home and selling it. He was excellent in responding to calls and keeping us up to date on everything that was happening. He also did a very good job in showing us homes to buy. He was honest and he has a very good sense of humour making all transactions very pleasant and fun. James was very honest about how to market our home, what to sell at and what we'll get in our price range when buying. He was always very professional. He always found time for us. We think he did a pretty fantastic job. Keep up the good work." 

- Kris & Craig

"James returned my calls quickly, listened to what I wanted and always followed up with me. He didn't show me homes above my price range. After finding a house I wanted to make an offer on James suggested looking at it again and having lunch first. I appreciated this and did not feel pressured."

- Bonnie

"Mr. Born did a tremendous job and was very accessible. He was like a brother. His approach to everything was first class all the way. He always had my best interest in mind. I would recommend him to anyone thinking of selling or buying."

- Trevor

"James did an awesome job at helping us find our home. He was on the ball and very responsive. Jim made us feel great. We had a horrible experience with an agent and Jim put us at ease. It was Christmas when we finalized our offer. I would definitely say he went above and beyond. Keep up the great work." 

- Roy & Roseily

"James will be a friend of the family. He was not pushy and did not try to talk us into anything. If any of our friends or family were in the market to buy or sell we would definitely recommend him. His best quality was the fact that you felt you could trust him from the start. He is always welcome in our home. Coffee is always on." 

- Elisabeth

"James worked very hard. Often I thought he earned his commission. Jim became a friend to us. He worked with us rather than for us. Professional and polite, he never operated in a way that compromised the trust we gave him. We would use him again. Best of luck to Jim." 

- Chuck & Lynn
