    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 ??

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    James is amazing. He was so responsive to us and patient as we bought our first home. We had him on the buying and selling side and he negotiates so well, communicates clearly and quickly, and overall is a charm. Highly recommend.

    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.

    We had an exceptional experience working with James to buy our home. We were first time home buyers and he was very patient, professional, and worked hard to ensure we understood the entire process and thoroughly explained every question we had. He pointed us in the direction of a USDA loan and a first time home buyer grant from VHDA, which worked great for us. James was always quick to get back to us and had solid communication throughout the process. He was honest with us about what was realistic and he advised us on what would be the best deal for our family. When it came to negotiations for our (now) house, James was quick to communicate between us and the seller. Additionally he helped us get a great deal with comps included. I would definitely use him again, and I recommend him to anyone looking to buy/sell a home in the NRV. Thanks again, James!

    James was a crucial asset throughout the entire process of getting the house ready for market, placing it on the market, and advising on options available.
