"From our first meeting with Jim, very professional.  He told us to stick with him, that he would get our house sold; low and behold, he did. Thanks for all the help from Kim Platt, very professional."-S Woods

"Great Guy."-R Doyle

"We regret our starting point sales price requiring the two subsequent necessary reductions in price, but when an offer came in, Jim had the negotiation know-how to get us a contract we could live with.  His staff is courteous and diligent, but we weren't always in agreement with the interaction between them and the buyer's agent. It created some unnecessary expense that could have been avoided.  Jim knows the business well and always has a smile and a positive approach to the mine fields of buying and selling homes."-M Lenski via Zillow

"Taylor (Corrie) was VERY PATIENT with me for 2 1/2 years to find the house to fit my needs.  He would tell me, "don't waste your time" or "it is a maybe". The house I bought he knew was the right one.  He even showed the house to my daughter when she was in town.  Taylor will surely get my business and word-of-mouth (endorsement)."-C Raney

Thanks, Jim!"-N Carter

"We were referred to a bank by Mr. Cleveland and Mr. Corrie that took care of our needs.  There was also a gift from RE/MAX that was given to us for purchasing a home.  Mr. Corrie also responded and helped after the sale of our home and offered for free a moving van, but we ended up renting a U Haul. We are very appreciative of this team. Thanks!"-Davis


"I recommend Jim Cleveland and his team without any reservation. As an investor in the Decatur market, Jim has helped me purchase over 60 homes in the past four years.  All of the homes in which I have purchased have been considerably under market value and as a result we have been able to get an extremely high rate of return on our cash.  Jim has built a good team, as a result the closing process has been easy which otherwise can be very stressful. Furthermore, Jim has gone out of his way to share his knowledge, share contacts for banking relationships and has always done what it takes to help. Jim Cleveland and the RE/MAX office are rock stars in the business!-C Geiser
