    We have sold and bought several home now with James and he has done a wonderful job each time. He is very responsive to any concerns or questions we have and made the selling/buying process less stressful for us. We had multiple offers on our home and he was able to navigate us through the right options for us. He is our "go to" realtor now!

    James was not only very knowledgeable of the area market but also did a great job at helping us appraise our home's value against the current market and knew how to get the best value we could. We sold quickly and effortlessly because James managed all the aspects of the sale for us.

    Overall we had a terrific experience with James. We purchased our new home without his assistance with such a hot housing market in 2022 but James was critical in the success of selling our home. His knowledge of local contractors related to real estate is exceptional. Terrific experience, highly recommend. 10/10

    James was a pleasure to work with, before, during and after our purchase. He was knowledgeable in the area we were looking in. His response to our many questions in the process was timely and efficient. He negotiated our purchase offer twice very professionally and responded to us promptly. I would highly recommend him to others. Thank you James ??

    We had an amazing experience working with James. He is knowledgeable about Blacksburg and surrounding areas. He is professional and always willing to go the extra mile. Thanks to James, we were able to find the perfect second home in Virginia from the comfort of our home in NY. He made the entire process very convenient for us; from scheduling virtual tours, recommending mortgage brokers and meeting with inspectors when we couldn't be present. We really appreciate everything he did for us.

    We recently used James to sell our home. He was very helpful throughout the process. He is very patient and stuck with us through the inevitable twists and turns of the process. He struck the perfect balance of being available and knowledgeable without being bothersome. Most valuable was his knowledge of the local market and influence of interest rates that were being adjusted significantly during the sale. Once the sale was framed, he arranged closing quickly and efficiently. I am very happy with the outcome James facilitated and recommend him highly.

    If you're looking for a real estate agent that treats you like family, goes above and beyond expectations, and is upfront and honest; then James Nolen is for you. We were looking for a house while living in Phoenix, AZ when James took the time to check out several houses for us. If we needed something he would response was almost immediate. When my wife came to visit the Roanoke area James took several trips to homes with her. during one visit he found mold in a spot that no one thought to look. During the negotiation for our new home, he was able to get the owners to offer a fair price, After the inspection, he was able to negotiate a discount to the closing costs, James also worked closely with our lender as the closing date had to be delayed several times due to illness. I would recommend James to handle any real estate matters for me, I also intend to recommend him to family and friends.

    James Nolen was great at helping us to buy a place. We trusted him completely. Kept us informed each step of the way That we had no guess work as to what or how we were to do. He even was there for the closing to support us. We have purchased real estate several times in the past. But have never found anyone as thoughtful as James Nolen. He did and will be willing to go the extra mile. Even after the sale. He is the one I now recommend to everyone. And will definitely work with in the future. Thank You James!Bonnie

    I can't recommend James highly enough. He's experienced and knowledgeable. And owned our entire sale process from beginning to end. I heartily recommend him to anyone looking to sale their home or property.
