Jim was a fantastic realtor to work with bith as buyers and sellers. My husband and I lived in the same house for 20 years. We were looking for our “dream house”. Jim started out by describing this as a “journey” we were taking and his role was to help our family “Find our way”. Beautiful perspective and it worked! We found our dream house.

Hi cannot say enough wonderful things about Jim. Not only is he knowledgable and professional, but he is passionate about his work. Jim was patient with us as we worked towards an ideal time to buy and then was 100% ready to make sure our contract and closing went through both quickly and without a hitch. As first time home buyers, Jim was excellent at helping to answer questions even when we weren't sure what questions we should be asking. I felt that he only had our best interest at heart and I would recommend him to anyone looking for the best experience in town.

Jim VanPaepeghem helped my brother navigate through his home buying experience and I knew my family and I could count on him to do the same for me. Jim is very knowledgeable about the process and looks out for your interests. He is quick to respond to any question and always gives his honest opinion. We strongly recommend Jim to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. Mason, April, and Tony Hall

Jim was a wonderful choice for realtor! He listened to us regarding our needs and sold our home in record time. Not only is he exceptionally knowledgeable regarding his profession, but he is friendly and personable. He kept us updated every step of the way and stayed in constant contact. Calls were returned almost immediately and any concerns we had we handled in a timely manner. Not only WOULD we recommend him but we HAVE recommended him. We are simple down-to-Earth people and I have to add that, not only is Jim a professional, he's also a hoot! He was both a success and a pleasure to do business with.

Jim was very friendly, knowledgeable and patient. As buyers we don’t always know what we want or need, even if we think we do. Jim was very patient while we navigated our way. We would definitely work with Jim again.

Seller of a Columbus, Ohio property
I am thrilled to have the opportunity to recommend Jim to any seller or buyer in the greater Columbus area. Jim was SIMPLY AMAZING! From the moment we listed our home with him he made everything the easiest possible for us. He was in daily contact with feedback, he took over 100 photos of our home to show prospective buyers online, and when we did have a contract. he did all of the legwork himself. Jim was always available, always extremely positive and always looking out for our best interests. We are now in our "next home" after a seamless closing & we now have a new good friend, who is a tremendous realtor! Thank you for everything Jim!

We would highly recommend Jim as a realtor. We have had Jim sell two homes for us. He is very knowledgeable about real estate sales whether you are a buyer or seller. He returns calls or texts within a short time. He is very positive and supportive throughout the whole process. Jim will make recommendations but knows that the final decision is up to the buyer or seller. We felt his recommendations were always helpful throughout the whole process.

I cannot say more wonderful things about the service Jim VanPaepeghem provided me in search for my new home. I was frustrated with another Realtor I was using who wasn't responding in a timely manner in regards to email/phone communication and to getting me into properties in a timely fashion (in what was and still is a seller's market). Jim was referred to me by another Realtor who came highly recommended but who wasn't as familiar with the areas I was concentrating on in Columbus. From day one Jim was fast, thorough, knowledgeable and just straight-up personable! He was always able to get me in a property quickly. We worked together and knocked multiple ones out in a day, regrouped then did the same a week and sometimes days later. We got an offer in on one but there was a deed issue so I withdrew it when it expired and we continued looking. Finally found another one I liked and we both felt it was a solid investment. Got the offer in the same day (Friday) and luckily it was accepted because there were many showings scheduled for the weekend. Everything was smooth up to closing due to Jim keeping in constant contact and making sure I was aware of the items I needed to take care of. This wasn't my first house but it is still a big process and it was nice to have that direction. Jim stated he gives the same service no matter the cost of the property. I believe that because mine was on the lower spectrum of what one would be looking to pay here in Columbus, Ohio and the service was exceptional!

Jim Van Paepeghem helped us as homebuyers. The second home he showed to us exactly matched what we wanted to buy. We now enjoy living in that house. Then Jim helped us sell our old home which was in contract within 24 hours of listing. He offered exceptional dedicated service throughout the whole process with ongoing prompt communication by either phone calls, text, e-mail and in person, regardless of his schedule, location or time. Jim's excellent knowledge and advice on all property matters along with his open professional courteous manner established our confidence in his ability and commitment to serve our best interest and meet our expectations. The experiences of buying and selling were greatly simplified. We feel completely satisfied with the high quality service and would highly recommend Jim Van Paepeghem at Next Home to help you sell or buy your next home.
