Steven and's Reviews & Ratings

    • If you are looking for a realtor who will go the extra mile for you, I recommend Jimmy Grappone. He helped us find our new home in SC, suggesting we check out one more development he felt was right for us and met all our requirements. He listened to what we wanted and he was right on target. Being out of state, we were not familiar with this development and would have never looked there. It turns out to be exactly what we wanted. In addition, he helped us to find a realtor back in VA who was experienced in selling a specialty property like ours. Thanks to all his help, we listed and sold our home in record time and we are happy in our new home.[ link omitted ]

      - Kay & John G, Indian Land
    • My wife and I used Jimmy Grappone as our Realtor when selling and purchasing our new home. Jimmy made the selling experience quite smooth and sold our home within 2 weeks of the listing. While purchasing our home Jimmy did research and found some wonderful homes for us to choose from. We had a unique situation we were looking for as we needed a full mother-in law suite with additional kitchen and living area. Jimmy did research and helped us along the process to purchasing our new house. I would recommend Jimmy to the most picky buyer as Jimmy will give 110% throughout the whole process.[ link omitted ]

      - The O'Connor Family, south Charlotte
    • Jimmy has been a great realtor to work with! From the outset, he was great at explaining everything and coordinating showings in a timely manner. His friendly demeanor made him easy to converse with and he was good at listening to my 'needs' vs. 'would like' list in a home. After finding my new home, Jimmy quickly got the paperwork together for an offer and we were able to close in a month. He had recommendations on all the services but it was no problem if you wanted to use your own. Everything went smoothly and communication was on-point. I'd definitely recommend Jimmy to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.[ link omitted ]

      - Meagan V, Ballantyne
    • My wife and I wanted to take the time to commend Jimmy for the excellent service he provided as our Realtor for the sale of our home in May. During the process, Jimmy kept us informed of all developments, provided direction and obtained the best price possible from the buyers. He displayed excellent negotiation and communication skills and went above and beyond to make us comfortable. His commitment to customer satisfaction ensured for a surprisingly "drama free" experience. Thanks again to Jimmy![ link omitted ]

      - Donald Reddy, Charlotte / Indian Land
    • Working with Jimmy was fabulous! I can't say enough positive things!!! We needed to rent a house on short notice when relocating, and things went quite smoothly thanks to all the "behind the scenes" work that he did. He goes well beyond what I would expect in follow-up and follow-through, even after we moved. He was pleasant, professional, and very patient!!! Based on this very positive experience, I look forward to working with him when we purchase a home in the area. I highly recommend him![ link omitted ]

      - Dr. Knovich, Charlotte
    • Jimmy was an excellent Realtor to work with while making the daunting decision of purchasing the perfect home! My husband and I felt as though we were a priority. Jimmy was able to accommodate our schedules to view homes. He was always quick to respond to any questions we had making our home buying process go smoothly.[ link omitted ]

      - Elena & Patrick, Charlotte
    • It's not enough words to express how grateful I am that I met Jimmy Grappone. I was referred to Jimmy from a mutual friend. From the start he was attentive and responsive to my preferences. He remained on contact and provided several options for me to select from. Within two weeks I secured my dream condo in the heart of uptown Charlotte! Thank you Jimmy for helping me trade my commute miles for minutes (on foot)!!![ link omitted ]

      - Joe Parker, Charlotte
    • I could not have been more pleased with the service that Jimmy provided. We had previously benefitted from his expertise in obtaining a rental house, and I knew that based on this experience, that he would be our choice for buying a home in the Charlotte area. I trusted his judgment and advice. For instance, he insisted that we do a walk through just prior to signing our contract. There was unforeseen and unexpected water damage caused by the movers who had moved the previous owners. He was able to recommend a reputable contractor, who quickly but very thoroughly fixed the problem, and the delay in our move was minimal. He was always there to provide advice and guidance, but we never felt pressured. He responded promptly to any questions or issues at any time of the day or evening. He describes himself as a "people person," and I completely agree. He went way out of his way to be sure that all details were attended. He was nonjudgmental, personable, and experienced. I would highly recommend him with the utmost confidence![ link omitted ]

      - Mary Ann K, Matthews
    • Jimmy helped us buy a house in Ballantyne Country Club this summer. As first time buyers, my husband and I were very apprehensive and had lots of questions. Jimmy was always responsive. If he did not readily know an answer, he made every possible effort to solve the issues to our satisfaction always with a smile on his face and a positive demeanor. The search lasted about 3 months. Jimmy was very patient exploring houses with us almost every weekend until we shortlisted the one that is now our dream home. Throughout the process, he was very professional, honest, not over persuasive, and available to meet at very short notice to match our schedule. After the inspection, there were certain repairs that could not be reconciled with the sellers. However, Jimmy went above and beyond his duty to arrange these repairs. Undoubtedly, we would recommend him anytime. Thank you, Jimmy![ link omitted ]

      - Dave and Sue Smuda, Waxhaw
    • Being my first time purchasing a house, I was very concerned about finding someone who would help guideme through the process and had the knowledge behind them to assist with all my questions along the way.Jimmy exceeded my needs and expectations by far, and from the first time I spoke with him, he made mefeel confident in my decision to work with him.Jimmy provided top notch service from start to finish. Not only did he provide timely updates along the way,he also provided so much insight into the community as well as surrounding areas of interest which made meeven more excited about moving to the area than I was before.Working with Jimmy has been an absolute pleasure, and his wealth of knowledge was very muchappreciated in my search for the perfect home. I can't say enough about the excellent experience I have hadworking with him. He is truly an asset, and I would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home. Infact, I have already recommended him to my family who are thinking of moving to the area.

    • Jimmy understood my needs and the time frame I wanted to purchase my home in. He is superknowledgeable and friendly. He helped make this whole experience go as smooth as possible.Jimmy is so professional and was always available when I needed him or had questions. He was great!

      - Misty, Fort Mill
    • Jimmy is someone who gets deals done! When I had an issue with my lender who cancelled on me 5 daysbefore my scheduled closing Jimmy jumped in to help. His connections in the industry got my pre-approvedin 24 hours and I was able to close in 10 business days. If it wasn't for his help along the way, I would havelost the house I wanted and all my money I had already put down in deposits. If/when I need a realtor again,Jimmy is my 1st and only call.

      - John Taylor, Waxhaw
    • "Jimmy brings a high level of enthusiasm and passion to his profession. His focus is on each and every client and he is very thorough throughout the process of working with renters, landlords, buyers and sellers. His written communication skills are top notch and he also brings fun to every transaction with his sense of humor!"[ link omitted ]
