“Selling a house requires more knowledge and effort than most of us imagine. It’s made more complicated when it’s not your house, you live 100 miles away and you don’t know a realtor in town. I asked a friend from the area and they suggested I contact Jim Kapellen….It was great advice! He did everything I could ask or hope for. He always kept me apprised of any new developments in the house sale. He found a buyer quickly and handled all of the required duties and paperwork in a professional manner. Equally important to us, he did numerous extra favors that really weren’t his responsiblility, but saved me a couple of trips to Plymouth. Thanks for your professional and good-humored handling of the house sale…You made the task much easier than I expected.” ~John
