Sold the first weekend on the market

"We did a lot of research on realtors and chose Jim based on his local knowledge and his track record. We were impressed by his many resources (stager, contractor) that helped get our home where it needed to be to sell quickly. We sold the first weekend we were on the market. We also appreciated his client focused approach."

Had no idea a Real Estate agent could be so wonderful

"What can I say. Jim was an absolute professional. I had no idea a Real Estate agent could be so wonderful. He explained the entire process, every step of the way. He literally took care of everything to assure the sale of my house. I was thrilled at how effectively he was able to get my house on the market and in front of the right people. The house went on the market, within 6 days Jim had fielded several offers. A month and a half later we closed. Jim, I cannot thank you enough!"

Jim knows the market

"Jim knows the market and assists a seller in getting a home ready for sale. His advice is exactly on target, which is why my home sold in two days for the asking price. All of the details for the closing were handled quickly and efficiently. Jim Regan is the experienced professional that any buyer or seller would be blessed to have as their realtor!"

Jim is a true professional

"Jim is a true professional with a network of resources to help prepare your house for the sale. We used a handy man he recommended to repair, paint and prep both the interior and exterior. We used a carpet provider and installer from his network. We used a colleague of his to recommend staging and paint. He had contacts at the local appliance store."

Selling a house in Mt Prospect? Definitely go with Jim

"We had a difficult location to sell in, with a poor school district and our house backed into apartment buildings. So we needed a real estate agent that knew the area really well to get the best price. When he came to the house, we were very impressed with his knowledge of our neighborhood and the houses that were built on our block. He knew right away that we had knocked down a kitchen wall during remodeling because he already knew the layout of all the houses on our block, which were built by the same builder. He knew stuff about our neighborhood that we never knew. We interviewed with other realtors too, but felt the most confident with Jim's experience and knowledge. And it paid off as he got our house sold within 6 months and at a price higher than what we paid. Which was pretty good considering we bought our house during the market boom 12 years ago. He even took care of closing while we were away on vacation. If you are selling a house in Mt Prospect, definitely go with Jim. He sells a lot of houses in this town for a reason. Even if your house is in a different area, I would still go with Jim for his easygoing personality and patience with his clients."

Jim's a man of many talents

"We knew about Jim's reputation in Mount Prospect before we chose him as our realtor. He sold our neighbor's house the prior year and we were impressed with his results. He did an outstanding job for us securing a sale within a very reasonable price range for us to a family we know will appreciate and take care of the home. He is very knowledgeable, prompt and diligent. We would recommend him in an instant for someone looking for an experienced broker with great connections helping us with staging and construction after the sale of our home. He is a man of many talents."

Jim Regan is a Pro's pro

"Jim Regan is a Pro's pro. He was our agent for both the sale of our home and our purchase of a new home. He was with my wife and I every step of the way. Buying or purchasing a home can be so stressful, but Jim was always a step ahead, and took care of the little things. The most important thing was he made us feel more like a partner in the process than a "client." He negotiated a great price on both ends of the deal. If you don't want to feel like a number, then Jim is your guy."

Went very smoothly, with no stress for me

"I received an offer my Des Plaines townhouse four days after Jim listed it on the MLS. I moved to WI four years ago. There was no interest in the property for two years, so I took it off the market. I waited another two years for the market to improve. I called Jim in May 2015 and explained that I no longer lived in the area. The next weekend he came to Door County (to play golf) and brought the contract to my home. He arranged for the appraisal, inspections, some repairs that were needed, and recommended an attorney. Everything, including the closing, was handled without the need for me to return to IL. It went very smoothly, with no stress for me. Bravo!"

Jim truly knows the real estate business

"Jim truly knows the real estate business and understands the people involved. I always felt I was his only client, even though I knew he had several clients to support. Buying and selling a home are huge life changing decisions. I'm grateful I met Jim at the right time to help navigate me through some trying times. He is caring, respectful and has treated me with the utmost dignity -always the professional! If I could give a rating of more than 5 stars, I would! He's the BEST!!"

Great Track Record

"We had a very unusual request for Jim...to sell 3 houses in Mount Prospect ASAP. We knew Jim was the right person for the job because of his knowledge about the area and because of his great track record. He had previously been the seller's agent when I bought one of the house 10 years before and I had always liked his professionalism and expertise. When we had 3 homes to sell, we knew he would take care of us. He sold all 3 homes in 3 months and we very pleased with the contracts!! He was extremely attentive and took time to explain each scenario as it came up. We would ABSOLUTELY recommend him to anyone who needs a real estate professional!!"

Perfect agent to represent us

"Jim's warmth and professionalism, combined with practicality and calm, made him the perfect agent to represent us as sellers. We did our homework and researched several agents in the area, and Jim was the most accomplished and highly recommended. "Mr. Mount Prospect" is well known in the area and would make an excellent buyer's representative as well. Fair, knowledgeable, and with a wealth of referral resources at his fingertips, Jim made a life-changing event as uneventful and positive as possible. Thank you, Jim!"

Knowledge of the Mount Prospect area is unparalleled

"We thoroughly enjoyed working with Jim over the past year as we searched for our home. His knowledge of the Mount Prospect area is unparalleled which is tremendously helpful when you’re relocating and not sure where to concentrate your search. It took us nearly a year to find our home; but throughout this time, Jim was always there for us and willing to help us debate house after house until we found the perfect one for us. We would definitely recommend working with Jim!"

I highly recommend him and his office

"Jim Regan is, simply, the best. Very knowledgeable and hard-working, Jim, with his years of experience, made selling my building easy. He wrote a wonderful ad; his office scheduled showings seamlessly; and within four days of listing, I had a down-payment from the individual who bought my property. Jim was always there to answer my questions with calm intelligence and dealt easily with any difficulty that arose. I’ve worked with Jim on many occasions, and he’s always wonderfully reliable. I highly recommend him and his office."

Sold my townhouse on the first showing

"I just sold my townhouse on the first showing. I have worked with Jim several times over the last 10 plus years and keep coming back. He is responsive and what I appreciate most is no pressure. He has a realistic approach to pricing and gets the job done. I trust his advice."

- rfisk1014

Second time we have used Jim

"Once we contacted Jim, he responded and came over to take pictures and work up the listing. We signed the agreement on a Wednesday night and by Friday evening we had two cash offers. When he notified us of the offers, he was on vacation in Pennsylvania, but he still handled the notification of the other realtors to obtain their client's final and best offer. Within a matter of minutes we were notified that both the first two people had raised their bid to the same amount. Subsequently, one of the buyers backed out. Jim handled everything while on vacation and made all the arrangements for the closing. We closed in a week and a half. Jim is very easy to work with and has the best interests of his clients at heart. This is the second time we have used him and if the need arises, we will use him again. We also will recommend him to anyone who asks us who we had."

He not only helped us to find the home of our dreams, but he helped us with finding a reputable mortgage broker, attorney and handyman, etc. We put our full trust in Jim during this process and he didn't let us down. He is the only realtor that I will ever recommend to anyone. He is honest, trustworthy, ethical and exceptionally talented."

Fantastic first time experience

"Jim was referred to us by a family member and we could not of asked for a better realtor. Jim was knowledgeable and very honest about the houses he showed us. In working with Jim he wants the best for you and is determined to find that special house for you and your family.

- Sullivan Beau

Very knowledgeable about the area

"When my family started looking at houses in Mount Prospect we decided to give Jim "Mr. Mount Prospect" a call. We figured a Realtor with the name of Mr. Mount Prospect should have a good feel for the area. We were right! Jim was very knowledgeable about the area and the current market conditions. He didn't just try to sell us a house, he listened to what we wanted and needed and showed us homes that fit our criteria. We found a great house and Jim didn't hesitate to go to work for us and get us the house. I would highly recommend Jim to anyone looking in Mount Prospect or surrounding areas. He has a ton of experience and a wealth of knowledge about the area."

Mr. Prospect is a perfect name for Jim

"Jim was very professional, knowledgeable and well versed in the Reality business in the Mt Prospect area. Mr. Prospect is a perfect name for Jim. I had no responses from a previous real estate company. After I listed with Jim on a Thursday evening, I had showings on Friday and approx. 6 on Saturday. Jim called me Sunday morning with an offer, which I accepted since it was more than the asking price, and we had the inspection that same day. The house sold in 1 day. The closing went very smoothly. All in all I had a great experience with Jim and would highly recommend him."

Jim knows the business!

"Jim helped me sell my home in a very stressful situation. He was kind, compassionate, and knowledgeable and gave great advice. He always returned my phone calls and answered every question with well thought out answers and advice. He reviewed all processes and all those forms in a clear, concise manner. I highly recommend Jim and will use him again if I ever move. I have already recommended him to several family members and friends and I will continue to recommend him! Jim knows the business!"

- Tina Stryker

Fully Prepared

"Mr. Regan came fully prepared for our first meeting to show comparable sales and the range of possible prices for our home. He made helpful suggestions, which we followed, to show our home in the best light. He contacted a few potential buyers before the house went officially on the market upon both his and our returns from vacations. Nothing came of those, but the house sold within one day after being on the market, and close to the asking price. Mr. Regan then skillfully shepherded both us and the buyer through the completion of the process, and the closing took place without incident."

- suharders

"Jim helped my wife and I with the sale of our former home and the purchase of the perfect home for our family. His knowledge of the market and all of his business relationships were invaluable. We would recommend Jim to anyone looking to sell or buy a home."

- avegter

"Jim has helped me buy and sell several homes over the past 20 years. I would not even consider using another realtor. He is honest, very experienced, responsive to me, and I truly feel he is looking out for me and not just trying to get a sale."

- katco97

Jim knows the NW suburbs

"I've known Jim for several years as a result of an open house I attended. 2013 was a difficult year to find real estate due to limited availability. Jim's patience and advice was very helpful throughout the process. As a result, he sold my home in Mt. Prospect, negotiated my new home purchase in Arlington Heights, and provided rental advice for my wife's old condo. Jim knows the NW suburbs, the people, and the investment opportunities. I would not hesitate to recommend Jim."

"Jim was very professional and did an excellent job advising me in properly pricing and selling our home. He quickly got the process started and we sold the home in 10 days at the appraised price. Jim is a talented real estate professional who was excellent to work with and I recommend him to anyone buying or selling their home."

- Don Segreti

Lucky to find Jim Regan!

"I could never say enough wonderful things about Jim!! He was absolutely great in getting my Mothers house sold in a very timely fashion. His knowledge of the local market is extensive and he provided us with complete market analysis and comps to price the property accordingly. Although Jim has a busy schedule, he was always able to respond to me almost immediately to address my concerns, questions, etc... I must also add that this transaction was unusual as I live out of town, my elderly Mother had moved into assisted living therefore Jim needed to make some extra trips to see Mom for reassurance of the sale process. He was so very kind and calming with her. He helped me extensively with sale process while I was out of town. Overall, I must say that we were so lucky to find Jim Regan to handle our real estate needs!!!"

You can't go wrong with Jim

"A long time resident, Jim Regan has been our "Mr. Mount Prospect" for over 20 years. Jim knows the community and knows the properties. On any block, he can point to houses he has sold. He is honest, fair and has a deep level of integrity. Finding the perfect house is not easy, but Jim found such a house for me. He has a team in place that moves efficiently and with ease through the negotiating and the legal necessities. And, equally important to me, as a resident, Jim supports the community and has always been a kind, generous and charitable man. I highly recommend him as a Realtor. You can't go wrong having Jim as the finder of your new home!"

Sold it in less than a week!

"Jim helped me purchase my first home and then 4 years later, he sold it in less than a week! His 30+ years in the real estate business made our selection in choosing the best agent in the suburbs a piece of cake. He is flexible, easy going, and always has his clients best interest in mind. We are now ready to buy our second home and will without a doubt have Jim by our side."
