"I can't say enough how much we loved having Jim as our agent as we found our home. We moved to Chicagoland from Wisconsin, and Jim could not have been more professional, helpful, or knowledgeable about what we thought we wanted, and, more important, what he knew we wanted. Jim knew every town, every neighborhood, and knew within seconds whether or not a home would be worth our time. The house we eventually fell in love with wasn't even on our list, but Jim told us we needed to see it. Turns out, we found the home we want to stay in forever. When it came time to negotiate on the house, Jim was beyond prepared. He knew exactly what to do and followed through on all of it.
I would not hesitate for a single second, and I recommend Jim to anyone looking for a new place to call home."
"Our Realtor, Jim Lotka, was an incredible asset during our home buying process. Not only were we unfamiliar with the area, but we also had an extremely tight timing. My wife and I gave Jim 2 months to find the perfect home for our family. His ability to listen to our needs, make honest recommendations, and execute when appropriate makes him an incredible agent. If you're looking to buy, or sell, in the greater Chicagoland area, look no further than Jim!"
"My wife and I weren't sure if we wanted to stay in the city (Lincoln Park, Lakeview, Old Town, Wicker Park) or make the move to the western suburbs. We hired Jim because he has tremendous experience and understanding of each market. Rather than hiring a city REP with little knowledge of the suburbs, or vise versa, we got the best of both worlds. Jim brought unique listings and had a strong rapport with listing agents, which came in handy when struggling to schedule visits outside of open houses or when we needed some flexibility. Ultimately, we found what we need in the city to be comfortable with our growing family and not sacrifice the pace of life that we love. During negotiations Jim was our biggest advocate, but also knew how to give direct/honest feedback when we were off base. I WILL be hiring Jim for my next home or investment property."
"Jim Lotka is a great realtor, friend, and ongoing resource as we navigate life in our new home. He really listened to what we were looking for and was always readily available. Our first home buying experience could not have gone more smoothly and we are so happy – we attribute all of this to working with Jim Lotka! Well after we closed and moved in Jim continues to check in and provide invaluable service. Highly recommend!"
"We had the pleasure of working with Jim Lotka in the fall of 2016. His professionalism and real estate knowledge is second to none. He worked tirelessly to both sell our condo in the city and find a home in Clarendon Hills for our family to grow into. I would highly recommend using Jim and his team to help find the right home for you. He will go above and beyond to make sure you are happy and comfortable throughout the entire home buying experience! He's the best!"
"Jim was a pleasure to work with. He was very prompt in getting back to us with any questions that we had. He also has many connections and relationships that can be helpful during the buying or selling process. Jim has a strong sense of what is going on the in RE world. I would recommend working with Jim and plan to work with him again in the future."
"Jim was great to work with and I highly recommend him to anyone buying/selling a home. My husband and I had a great time looking at houses with him. He was extremely helpful and gave us his honest opinion about any concerns we had while walking through houses. Moreover, he was very responsive to our calls and texts with various questions we had about the entire process. Working with Jim made this process much less stressful!"
"Jim is one of the most easy going people to work with. He is always kind and professional. I was shopping for my first apartment and although my family and I may have had some conflicting opinions, Jim was able to help us settle on an apartment everyone involved loved. He was patient (my search was not quick), understanding and a great listener. He put in the hard work and was always positive to work with and never pushing. I trusted him and knew he had my best interest in mind! I would highly reccomend Jim!"
"I HIGHLY recommend Jim. He was very helpful with finding us our very first home. He was very patient with us. Jim was willing to work with our schedules and was available if we had any questions about anything. If you are looking for an overall good guy that knows what he is doing, no doubt Jim Lotka is your guy."
"Jim was great to work with! He was committed to learning exactly what we needed and wanted in a home and worked long and hard to find the home we ended up purchasing. Jim was honest throughout the entire process and continued to support us through the purchasing/closing process. He was always available when we had questions. I highly recommend working with Jim if you are looking for someone who is knowledgeable, honest, and hard working!"
"My wife and I were referred to Jim by some of our best friends and we were not disappointed! Right out the gate, Jim was friendly, actually wanted to know about our home needs and was extremely responsive....like within MINUTES. My wife and I were first-time home buyers and Jim made us feel completely comfortable throughout the entire process. From answering our phone calls, emails and texts at 10:00pm to contacting anyone and everyone during the purchasing process, my wife and I knew that we were in good hands every step of the way. Not to mention the fact that Jim is a down-to-earth guy and he won't lead you down the wrong path if he can help it. He also referred us over to our inspector, attorney, contractor and landscaper -- which we are extremely happy with!
Don't think twice about using Jim. He will make sure you get a home and that you feel at home with him the entire way.
