                        - Sanjiv
                      • My home had previously been listed with another broker with no results. When James took over the listing, there was regular communication, and whenever I had questions, he responded immediately. I would highly recommend James to anyone looking to buy or sell their property. It was a pleasure doing business with him.

                        - Gloria Crosby
                      • I met James randomly back in 2010 while looking for my second home in Cape Coral, since that time I have bought and sold a property through James and currently in the process of closing on a rental property with him as well, I could not be more pleased with the efforts that James put forward in helping us with all our real estate needs

                        - Mike Barrows
                      • James was a pleasure to work with. He is extremely familiar with Cape Coral and real estate in general. He was a great resource when we had questions and helped us make a good purchasing decision? He even looked after our property until closing.

                        - Kathy Gifford
                      • My husband and I live in Maryland and found ourselves in the position where we had to sell a family home in Florida. I made a short list of agents I wanted to interview over the phone and called all 5 of them. 3 did not answer the phone or return my call, one sent me a text that said she was busy and would get back to me at her convenience. James was the only one who answered his phone and after a conversation, decided we had the best candidate and he listed our home in Florida. His knowledge is vast and his service is complete. Since we were not local, James handled the few home inspection issues to our satisfaction. It took more work than if we had just agreed to the buyer's request, but he went the extra mile.I would highly recommend James to anyone seeking to buy or sell a home as he is the ultimate professional and will work very hard to make your deal close.

                        - Sophia Malia
                      • We had the great pleasure of working with James, and his colleague Tracy. It was a very long process, starting while we were selling our previous home. Being new to the area, James was great, as he has tremendous knowledge of the area. Patient beyond all expectations. James was always available, always patient, always knowledgeable, and always available to answer any questions. We looked all throughout Ft. Myers, and Cape Coral, finally settling on a foreclosure. James did a good job finding out about our likes/dislikes from the outset, in order to eliminate looking at homes that would not meet our needs. I would highly recommend James to anyone looking to buy a home.

                        - Dan Bleich
                      • James is a pleasant and professional real-estate agent. He is very knowledgeable about Lee County real estate. He responded rapidly to our numerous questions. As we were living out of state, he took and emailed several detailed videos of properties of interest. During the six week period between closing and moving here, James arranged for required work to be done on the property and regularly checked on pool and lawn maintenance services. Having James as our agent was a pleasant and productive experience.

                        - George Brown
                      • After an unsuccessful attempt to sell our home with another company, we were reading some positive reviews on the real estate websites, and we decided to schedule an appointment to meet James Sommers. James and his team were very impressive right from the get go. James knew exactly where to price our home to get it sold and also at a price we were happy with. All our questions were answered in a timely manner and they were always available at our convenience to show us properties, and also found us a home to move into while in the process of selling our current home. James was always available to answer our phone calls, and always called back within a few minutes if he was on another call. Other realtors we found did not return calls or were never available, and that is one of the reasons we decided on working with James. It took him less than 60 days to find a buyer for our home, and also find us a new condo to move into. We will gladly recommend James Sommers to anyone we know looking to buy or sell a home

                        - John and Shaun McDermott
                      • Knows a lot in regards to any area you are interested in. Very patient and Helpful with anything you might need to help with the property you decide On. Always responses quickly to calls and emails. Always Takes your wants Very serious.

                        - Dave tucker
                      • James was the consummate professional throughout the selling process. He made what is normally a high-stress process into a very low stress one. I was updated continuously on all of the showings of the house and was provided with constructive feedback. James made himself available to answer all of my questions and concerns. I would highly recommend him and his team to anyone.

                        - Tim Ritter
                      • James Sommers is by far the BEST realtor we've ever known. When we started the process of buying a home in Cape Coral, we had a couple of very unfortunate experiences with two other real estate "professionals". After we wasted time and money with those individuals, we almost gave up on the idea of moving to Florida. Then I decided to find out if there was a realtor with 100% positive reviews on Trulia, and James Sommers' reviews blew my mind. We called him and from that first call I knew that the reviews were truthful. He was honest, responsive, positive, professional and charismatic. We planned a new trip from DC to Cape Coral, and as we requested, he showed us a ton of outstanding properties to choose from in a short period of time. His knowledge and passion for Cape Coral is unparalleled, and his patience and good demeanor made the whole experience of buying a home, fun, smooth and remarkably easy. Once I found "THE" home of my dreams, James' knowledge and negotiation skills were integral in closing the deal in a couple of weeks and without any problems. He is such an amazing person, that he continues to help us with everything we ask: from transferring all services on our name and hiring honest service professionals, to finding someone to take care of my pets!! Thank you, thank you James Sommers... we are now living our dream and in the process we found a good friend!

                        - Emmy Tello
                      • Excellent customer service. Very knowledgeable and patient. Communicates and listens and stays in contact as he answered all our questions in a timely manner. Puts seller first and is client motivated as he actually got us a higher price than we expected.

                        - Barry Scott
                      • The sale of my condominium feels like a miracle. I cant thank James enough for getting it sold and for his great professionalism and patience throughout the whole process. If you want your property sold fast I highly recommend James!

                        - Rocio Agudelo
                      • I am 68 years old an d have bought and sold houses since I was 22. James is by far the best agent I have worked with. We live in Colorado and bought our house in Cape Coral. After several trips back and fourth which were costing us quite a bit we decided to have James take over. We wound up buying a house sight unseen. James set it all up and the first time we went through the door we already owned it. James saved us $24,000 dollars on the purchase price. Don't look any further for your realtor, you found him.

                        - Bob Davis
                      • James worked with us for years as we prepared to move to Florida. He was always there for us and helped us every step of the way to find our dream property!! I can't imagine a better realtor and can never thank him enough for all he did for us. 5 stars on everything!!

                        - Shan Davis
                      • James Sommers is a personable, action oriented professional who is representing 2 properties for me in Ft. Myers, FL. He has a calm but driven nature that gets results, and his friendly style of communication is refreshing. He is a knowledgeable and fair agent you can trust.

                        - Anne McDonald
                      • Was very helpful with answering Questions and concerns that I may have had.Quickly responded to my texts and calls.After we bought home James contacted us to make sure that all was well.

                        - Kathy
                      • I'm not sure there are words to describe how wonderful it was to work with James. I'm grateful for his expertise within the location of my home and surrounding location. He clearly loves what he does and it shows. If I had a question, he was always minutes away with an answer. Always come, patient, understanding, professional and well-educated within the Real Estate Field. Hire him to sell/purchase and you will be very impressed with peace of mind throughout the whole transaction. I was, and can't thank him enough

                        - Jennfier Brady
                      • James was a consummate professional, knows the area well and was very honest through the whole process. He was always quick the answer the phone or return a call no matter what day or time it was. My wife and I would highly recommend James and wouldn't hesitate to use him again.

                        - Marc & Erica
                      • James Sommers is a highly competent and knowledgeable professional (and always upbeat and optimistic). He first listened to our needs and wants in our real estate search, then worked hard to show us properties that fit the need. He was open and candid with his perspective, and did not try to steer us to properties that would boost his commission. He is also adept at guiding through the negotiation process. We always felt like he was trying to get the best deal for us...not just trying to get a sale closed. He is also an excellent communicator, keeping us updated at every step of the process. Our first real estate purchase experience with James was so positive that we turned to him again to assist us in a recent property purchase. We have also referred friends to James. I recommend James as someone who knows the business, is refreshingly honest, and has a client-centric focus.

                        - R
                      • James worked with my wife and me for 5 or 6 years without pressuring us to purchase something that didn't fit our needs. He didn't try to oversell a property just to get a deal. We finally found a home to our liking and James helped us through the negotiation process. He also provided information for lenders and vendors to take care of some problems that were found during the home inspection. Fair, honest and a good guy

                        - Carl Miller
                      • James got our property listed quickly and sold at a fair price. He was always willing to help out any way he could. Because we were out of town, he offered to help with contractors and with boxing up personal effects. Excellent realtor.

                        - C Nelson
                      • James Sommers was referred to us by our attorney. We made an appointment and he came to our home the next morning. He was very professional with a great, friendly personality which put us at ease since we were selling our home as a short sale. He handled all correspondence & negotiations with the attorney and lender to make the deal happen smoothly. He kept us in the loop with weekly phone calls whether he had any new information or just to touch base. James took beautiful pictures of the house (inside & out) along with an amazing video set to music. He listed our home on MLS as well as various home sites which created several showings; the first one within 2 days. We had a signed contract in less than 3 weeks! The closing went smoothly and on time. We were moving out of the area and James set up it up with the title company so we could sign the seller portion of the papers a few days prior to allow us to move without coming back to sign! We could not be happier. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND James Sommers. In today's times it was so refreshing to have the personal, excellent customer service you expect when buying or selling your home.

                        - Susan Juncal
                      • I had a most pleasant experience working with James. He is courteous, professional, very capable and efficient. James checks in regularly with the client to ensure they are content and he is ready to answer any and all questions. He took great home photos and a nice walk-through video as well. He is also very Attentive to detail and willing to go the extra mile and out of his way to solve problems. For example, I had a commode in the master bath that the home inspector deemed leaky and I disagreed with that assessment and didn't feel the need to fix or replace, and James offered to do the minor repair himself, which he did, and everyone was happy! I give him my highest rating!

                        - Mark Ferri
                      • James Sommers is amazing and I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home, I will also be using him for any real estate plans I may have in the future.

                        - Carl
                      • James helped us purchase a waterfront vacation home in Cape Coral. His professionalism, unsurpassed knowledge of the area and the overall market, made the entire buying process very easy. He did not pressure us at any time, only showed us homes within our budget and was extremely quick to respond to calls and email. His support also did not end after the closing, as he is supporting us with all the utilities, and any other services we need to get the home up and running. I fully recommend James for all your real estate needs in the Cape Coral/Fort Myers area.

                        - CraigRedshaw
                      • James made the sale of our home and the purchase of a new home very seamless. He was courteous, professional, and compassionate towards our stress levels. We couldn't imagine working with anyone else during this process. I would recommend James any day and encourage folks to allow him to help you and provide you with a great home buying experience. Thank you, James for working so hard for us!

                      • James Sommers exceeded out every expectation for a real estate agent. From our first phone conversation he instilled confidence in guiding us through the process of purchasing a home in Southwest Florida. When we met on the first day to look at homes James was prepared with printouts of a list of properties to see, taking into account properties we had expressed interest in. Day one was rough, some of the homes visited were just not what we had envisioned. We met in the morning on day two and again James was prepared with another list of homes and arraignments to visit them all. He had taken what he learned from day one about what we were looking for and applied it to a revised list. The home we found that met all our needs as a family wasn't even on our original list. That afternoon we went back to his office, an offer was submitted, and now we are new residents of SW FL. James even went over and above by recommending contractors to preform some work we planned on completing upon moving in.
