“Jim is amazing, honest and reliable. I would use him over and over.”

“My family first met Jim Baker from the Remax Sabre Realty Group in 2012, when we were looking to buy a home in Coquitlam. Jim came recommended to us by a friend of ours. With our blended family, and different needs, preferences, and expectations about the house, it was a real challenge. It soon became apparent that we were very lucky to have Jim as our realtor. He brought professionalism, extensive knowledge of the housing market, the area, as well as a whole array of related topics, that are important. If he couldn’t answer a question, which was rare, he would offer to inquire and find out. He always followed through with this. Jim also brought patience; not a quality that is an immediately obvious asset as a realtor, but not feeling pushed, rushed, or pressured while making such a big decision was a relief. Jim stuck with us when we suddenly decided to change our criteria in our housing search. He also always had a smile, a wonderful sense of humour, and a very obvious sense of job satisfaction. He taught us that a good realtor needs to be a peoples’ person, enjoying the interactions, and having an intuitive sense of what is important for the client. We have been so happy with our house, and as we are thinking of the next stage of our lives, we have recently contacted him to help us again. Thank you, Jim!”

“Our story is an unusual one. My partner was down in Texas finishing school, while I was here in Vancouver not even considering purchasing a home. One Sunday morning, my partner sent me an invitation to an open house right in Port Coquitlam and urged me to go see it – as it was just the sort of thing he was imagining for us to move in to upon his return. So I went. I checked out the place and fell madly in love with the apartment. As it was a Sunday, and offers for the unit were to be submitted in 24 hours by the end of the day Monday, I knew I was in for a challenge. All the realtor offices were closed, but by some luck and fate, Jim Baker was working overtime into the wee hours of the night and I happened to catch him there by chance. After explaining the situation we were in, the complexity of my partner being out of the country, and the time frame we had to work with, Jim Baker assured me that we could make it work. And that is exactly what he did. With financing lined up and a few excellent tips for submitting my offer, Jim managed to guide me through the purchase of my first apartment in a matter of days. Jim was incredibly professional, caring and attentive. His confidence and honesty reassured me that this was the right place to be at the right time, and his commitment to us and our complex situation was unwavering. I couldn’t have felt more comfortable and confident that I had the right realtor on my side. His support and professionalism was exactly what you wish for from the person who sees you through one of the biggest milestones of life. I have consistently recommended Jim to friends and family for the past few years, and will continue doing so, as he certainly earned my loyalty.”
