Jimmy exceeded our expectations on all metrics. He gave clear, easy to understand direction with regards to estimating the value/list price of the property, was very proactive in scheduling viewings and extremely prompt in terms of communications. I had a high level of trust in his process and his efforts paid off quickly, resulting in closing a deal within a week of my first contact with him. Would highly recommend his services to anyone looking for a property agent.

I've never had a positive experience with any Property Agent in Singapore until I met Jimmy. Jimmy took the time to listen and understand my requirements, put together a comprehensive proposal with shortlisted properties with links, pictures and prices, and had a smart and efficient viewing strategy. He has never once turned up late for an appointment, always made sure the seller agents turned up on time, is observant and intuitive, extremely patient and has never been pushy. I have already recommended Jimmy to several friends, whom Jimmy has successfully helped to either sell their property or help them find their next home. These friends in turn have also recommended Jimmy to other friends, to which is testament enough of Jimmy's professionalism and excellent service.

Jimmy took us across the full buying process with clarity, openness and incredible responsiveness. He was one step ahead of each stage which put us in a great position to secure exactly the apartment we wanted in the new build development. He managed all stakeholders and steered us through a seamless and smooth experience in buying our first property. Nothing was too much trouble and his positive attitude was infectious. He gave us great insights into the market and totally respected and recognised when we needed time think through our options. He is extremely knowledgeable, trustworthy and thoroughly professional. We would highly recommend Jimmy.

Jimmy was amazing. He took the time to understand what my wife and I were looking for and came back with solid recommendations that absolutely met our needs. As my wife and me were fairly open on some of our requirements, he put in a tremendous amount of time and effort towards making sure we understood what our options were and was essential in us closing the deal. He was thorough, knowledgeable, friendly and very dedicated. We would definitely love to work with him again.

Jimmy was wonderful to work with. Very helpful, clear and knowledgeable not only with the properties that we viewed but also with the whole buying and selling process. He gave us a lot of insight into the financials and really helped to guide us along. He’s superbly responsive too, it doesn’t matter what query we have, he’s always patient and gives his honest opinion. I would gladly recommend him to all our family and friends!

Working with Jimmy was great. He was involved with us early on during our reflexion process on the property we wanted to purchase. He helped us define the criteria that we should use in the selection of the house, and also in the different administrative processes. Jimmy was very engaging and helpful, as well as flexible with time. He always came with suggestions and also helped us review and discuss different options. He went beyond his duties to help us, whether on interim accommodation or mortgage details.

Absolute 5 stars experience with Jimmy!! My first time selling a house, so it was a new experience for me. Jimmy made it easy to understand the various timelines (as I was also buying a house) and costs involved. The process and ancillary aspects were clear from the start. When it came to the actual selling, Jimmy helped with the complex negotiation smoothly, and communicated clearly to our buyers what was important for us (which was the extension). In the end, we got what we needed and more! Very impressed and happy with the outcome!! Halfway through the process, there were also curveballs as we had a difficult seller on the other side of the transaction (buying a separate house). Jimmy helped to communicate everything with our buyer clearly and we managed to make some commercial adjustments that were very helpful in managing the whole process. Overall, it was a superb experience, one that would have been tougher to go through without an agent like Jimmy!!

It was a pleasure working with Jimmy as he helped our young family secure our dream home in Singapore. After having lived in rental property for 10 years we were really excited to embark on this buying journey but also a bit apprehensive about the process and the decisions to be made as its a big commitment. Jimmy helped break down the process for us and most importantly he started off by understanding our needs by focusing on those needs that are non-negotiable for us and those on which we can compromise. With this understanding he was able to short list units for us that met our criteria perfectly such that there was no wastage of time in viewing property that were not a good fit. After having shortlisted down the properties, he helped us made the decision both by addressing the rational and our emotional needs. We highly recommend him when it comes to buying a dream home for your family and we look forward to engaging him again for our future property related needs.

Jimmy is our trusted property advisor. We thoroughly enjoyed the process from the initial communications on what type of properties should we review and research into, to the actual viewings all through to the final purchase and paperwork stage. Jimmy is with us along the whole journey. As our advisor, Jimmy is patient, knowledgeable, well-informed and also honest. We highly value his honesty and transparency in giving us clear and fair feedback/advice on some properties we were interested in. Property purchase is a big life event; an important moment for most individuals and families and our family is blessed to have someone like Jimmy who puts our interest and considerations first; at every given step of the process.
