Robin and I would like to take this time to thank you and your team-Compass New Jersey for assisting in the sale of our home. There were several common themes that are noted in the ratings for you, such as, honesty, integrity, knowledge, extremely professional, ethical, dependable, and we are here to put a stamp on it all. My wife and I clicked/bonded with Mr. Hughes from the first day we met. Mr. Hughes displayed and communicated all the skills at a very high level that afforded him to be one of the top agents in the NJ region and the top producer in Essex County. We knew instantly, he was the man for the job, and he didn’t disappoint, actually proceeded all of our expectations. Mr. Hughes managed and drove most of the selling process. Always provided different options for every scenario, which there were plenty, and always let you know that the final decision was yours. It could not have been any smoother. Mr. Hughes laid out a plan, from suggesting repayments, staging the home, established a period from listing day of our home and the amount of time it would take to sell. Especially important, we were given a period as to when we could expect our proceeds. Once again, we were incredibly happy with the outcome and extremely ecstatic about the handsome sale. Mr. Hughes is truly one of the best if not the best at his profession. He is our number one agent, for sure. Thanks again to you and your team! We highly recommend them!
As first-time home buyers, we had a thousand questions regarding this process: Neighborhoods that met our criteria, what to expect from the loan process, which towns had good school districts, and much more. Luckily, Carolina came to our rescue, thoroughly guiding us and explaining every detail step after step.
Her guidance and knowledge were imperative for the successful and rapid process of buying our first home, especially during a pandemic. Carolina made herself available to answer all our questions at any time of the day. She communicated with all other parties involved (seller’s agents, attorneys, loan provider, etc) to expedite the process and to get answers to our questions about requirements and deadlines.
She even recommended vendors to work with, such as inspectors, who made us feel comfortable and prepared to tackle all the repairs around the house. I am extremely happy and grateful Carolina was with us along every step. This nerve wrecking process was smoother than expected due to her. I would highly recommend Carolina’s services to anyone who is starting their journey of finding their forever home.
My wife and I were first-time homebuyers who were referred to James by a friend. From our first meeting, we knew we had found the agent who would help us buy our first home. James was charismatic and personable which made him a hit with my wife and focused on the numbers and the value of a home which fit with my approach. Throughout the process, James was easy to reach and willing to give us his time and insight. He never pressured us to find a house and it always felt like he had our best interests at heart. When we finally found the house we wanted he expertly led us through the process. The people he recommended we work with were all top-notch and ensured a smooth outcome. James says he's in this business because he likes to help people and that rings true in how he treats his clients. I would not hesitate to use him again or recommend him to my friends and family.
I first contacted James Hughes in October of 2019 in regards to selling my mother’s home. Due to a number of circumstances (personal and pandemic), it wasn’t until September of 2021 when we actually put the house on the market. James kept in touch without pressure during those 2 years, offering advice as needed on how to move forward. Normally, I would have interviewed at least 3 Realtors® before selecting one but when the time came, I decided to go with James and I am very glad I did. James’ knowledge, experience, marketing strategy, and patience all worked toward a successful outcome. He made sure our needs were met and our concerns were addressed. And even helped with the cleanout. I highly recommend James Hughes and his team.
I cannot thank my agent, Elijah Hughes from The James Hughes Team, enough for all of his wisdom, enthusiasm, level-headedness, and guidance throughout this process. From the very beginning, he took me through the process step by step, walked me through everything until I understood it, and looked out for me in many ways, known and unknown. He even took his knowledge of key things like the furnace and stuff like that to check that they were the best they could be. (To clarify he’s not an inspector, but it was helpful that someone was looking out for the long game.) He took my dreams and wishes and worked with me tirelessly until we found the perfect home for me. I’m extremely happy and would recommend him to anyone!
I am so grateful to have worked with Mr. Elijah. As a single mom and not having much knowledge of what things to look out for when purchasing a (home). Mr. Elijah understood that and guided me. He knew what I was looking for and what I didn't want. He never pressured me or tried to convince me into taking a home. He also pointed out things in a home that would be a concern. He kept reassuring me during a frustrating purchasing process. He really hustled to make sure things were getting done and that everyone are on the same page. So thank you again for making a single mother's dream a reality.
Mr. Hughes is the best of the best. I was very fortunate to have Mr. Hughes. I was satisfied with his professionalism, knowledge, attitude, and his services. He stayed on top of everything and anything that I didn’t know of he was able to take his time to walk me through the entire process. I was also extremely pleased with Mr. Hughes's consistent communication via email, phone, and text messages. I rate Mr. Hughes a solid 10! I will definitely recommend Mr. Hughes to others.
Mr. James Hughes is a warm and highly professional person. I can say with confidence that he will work hard with determination and drive to make sure his clients are satisfied. I was a first-time buyer and Mr. Hughes helped my family and me in all of the processes of what we needed to do from start to finish. Mr. Hughes made it easier for us to get the right information that was needed. I didn't have to go crazy, he made buying a home a Joy, not Job.
Being referred to James Hughes was such a blessing to me! He was very kind and helpful with the sale of my home during a very challenging and emotional time. He had immense knowledge and resources to assist throughout the entire process, and was always in touch and communicating. He was very professional, yet personable, which made me feel very comfortable going through everything. I would recommend him without hesitation!
