Dear Jim, Being a distant seller based in Liverpool, UK, acting for a UK owner, it was marvellous to have the benefit of your local representation and vast experience of the local market. Your concise professional marketing advice enabled us to achieve a much faster sale than we expected. Many thanks for your enthusiastic support and endeavour. Regards, John B., Director, Mason Owen & Partners, Liverpool, UK -- John B - Liverpool, UK
From the start, Jim gave me his professional, unvarnished opinion on where the market was and what I could expect for my house. That's the kind of candor I appreciate. He gave me the facts and then helped me arrive at a sales plan I could live with and I made a new friend in the bargain. -- Dr. George S - Dunedin, Florida
I contacted Jim prior to a house hunting trip late last year. He responded quickly and provided a well screened list of candidate properties to review. Jim adapted well to our "refinements in requirements" in what we wanted and provided that critical local knowledge that enabled us to acquire a luxury bank owned property that surpassed our expectations. Thanks Jim! -- Steve and Beverly H - Dallas, TX/ Steamboat Springs, CO
Jim was a pleasure to work with. Jim was the first agent that we talked to that actually seemed like he was willing to earn our business. Jim was very responsive to our questions, and took the time to make sure we understood the answers. Where most agents acted like you were bothering them, Jim didn't give you the feeling that you were just a tire kicker wasting every ones time. I am in the construction business and deal with many realtors and was very relieved to have met Jim and see how a professional conducts their business. If you would like to be treated with respect, have someone on your side in a transaction, have a knowledgeable resource, and feel like you have a new friend at the end of the process, then Jim is your man. --Dave T - Atlanta, GA
Jim put together a sales plan and and made me confident that our house would be sold this summer.

Also, he has a great sense of humor. -- Walt D - Tucson, AZ

Being from out of town, we really needed a realtor that was knowledgeable about the area. Jim was that and more. He was so kind and helpful, and we were able to find our perfect ski home in only two days. Thanks for everything -- Dr. Brad S & Family - Chicago, Illinois
Jim showed my several wonderful properties in 2006. I immediately felt comfortable working with him and appreciated his knowledge of purchasing both residential and investment properties in Steamboat. Although I didn't make a purchase at that time, Jim kept me updated on the market. One day during my winter 2009 visit, we looked at more properties and found the perfect place in about 2 hours. Jim gave me advice and helped me through the process start to finish, so we got past the obstacles and completed the transaction with a minimum of fuss. Amazing considering the challenges of purchasing real estate and getting mortgages these days. -- Bonnie B - Colorado
Jim was personally recommended by our real estate agent who sold us our primary residence, and I must say it was an excellent choice! Jim has great knowledge of the Steamboat Springs market, which was very helpful in our search, based on the criteria we provided. He always responded very thoroughly and timely. His initial interaction with us was very professional, but also laid back, which we liked. He asked lots of questions to help pinpoint what we were looking for and then did very detailed search to find our second home. We have nothing but positives to say about Jim from the first interaction all the way through the process. Thanks Jim!! -- Glenn K- Denver/Steamboat Springs, CO
"I've known Jim in a professional capacity for 20 years and he is the complete package. High integrity, experienced, detail-oriented with excellent service and follow-through. We recently expanded into a new market that Jim had knowledge of and I called on him for his marketing advice. If you're looking for a win-win relationship with someone who is an expert in their field, Jim is your guy!" -- Linda Bowden - Scottsdale, AZ
We just happened to call Jim randomly from a list of brokers while in Steamboat one Saturday morning looking at properties. He was very helpful and friendly right from the get go. He asked important questions to get a feel for what properties would best fit our needs and wants. We then met in about an hour after he had secured several keys to show us some places. Jim worked tirelessly to find properties that he thought would be a good match over the next couple of weeks. We finally found the perfect condo in The Phoenix. It has been twenty some years since I've purchased a home and Jim lead us through the process step by step. He answered every question we had through phone conversations, emails, or texts. Communication is certainly one of Jim's strengths! I felt very comfortable with Jim as our real estate professional and would recommend him to anyone looking for property in the Steamboat area! -- Rich R - CO / WY
We moved from Bakersfield, CA to Steamboat Springs, CO in May of 2014. We were still living in Bakersfield when we started looking for houses in February. Jim was very helpful and responsive throughout the entire process even though it took us several months to make a decision. He was super knowledgeable about the area, and was responsive with ideas and suggestions based on our family and commute needs. The process should have been difficult because we were purchasing from out of state, but Jim knew all the right people to get our inspections and appraisals done. He knew what to look for and made sure that all of our needs and contractual obligations were met. We were nervous about "long-distance" buying a house from out of state, but Jim made us feel at ease and we are delighted with our purchase and love our new home. Jim was great. I would recommend Jim to anyone seeking to buy or sell a house in the area. -- Shana Smith - Steamaboat Springs, CO
I didn't know Jim until I hired him as my real estate professional for my resort property investment. Even though we had just met, he was as attentive as if we'd been friends for years. I have recommended him to others for his concise work mixed with his personality/easy likability. -- Dave C - Denver, Colorado
Jim is the best realtor I have worked with and one of the most positive, adaptable and fun people I know! Jim is an excellent motivator and result-oriented person. He has limitless enthusiasm for every project he oversees and thinking outside the box is second nature to him. -- Karen B- Sudbury Vermont
My wife and I recently moved to Steamboat Springs and were very pleased to find someone as friendly, knowledgeable and qualified to as Jim is, to work with while buying our first place in a mountain town. His insights on areas and things to look for were great and he continually guided us through the process once we found a place we wanted.
We were extremely pleased with Jim's expertise, professionalism, and knowledge of the Steamboat Springs market. He quickly zeroed in on our taste in homes, and didn't waste our time presenting properties that were not in line with those tastes. He kept us informed throughout the process and his guidance was critical throughout our transaction. Jim was always available when we had questions (and we had many!), and did a great job of getting answers for us. We would highly recommend Jim for anyone looking to purchase a property in the Steamboat Springs area
Jim recently acted as our Buyer's agent for a house we purchased in Stagecoach. I was very impressed with Jim's ability to "get the job done." He went significantly above and beyond to negotiate a very fair price on the home, and to help us work through an expedited closing process with both of us being on very hectic schedules. He is both knowledgeable and friendly, I would highly recommend him.
I highly recommend Jim. Jim is a great listener, and was able to obtain a thorough understanding of what we were looking for and narrow our search immediately. When it came to the transaction, Jim was relentless in his pursuit of protecting our interests and managing the process every step of the way. Always available and insightful, my wife and I were both very pleased in the service and thrilled to have a new friend and adviser that will handle our future real estate transactions.
We moved from Denver and while we knew some about Steamboat, we felt lucky to have Jim's area knowledge and expertise. He was able to give us information about our options/considerations that we would never have had without him working with us. Jim is responsive and professional. He is personable but will also let you know in the right way if you need to readjust your thinking. Ultimately, our goal was to live in a particular neighborhood in Steamboat in our price range. And we accomplished that together under a tight timeline with challenges/obstacles along the way. We highly recommend Jim and plan on working with him again.
I met Jim through a mutual passion of cars many years ago. My company was looking to expand in the mountain areas with some residential construction projects, and we were looking for someone to work with in the Real Estate business that would listen to us and our objectives -- as they varied from project to project. In all we built 4 properties and flipped 2. With Jim's perspective on the market and our focus on the bottom line we were very pleased with our portfolio, and sales. Jim is a great team player and provided many other members of my lending team and the ownership team with insightful feedback during the progress of our construction and sales phases. I highly recommend his input when considering purchasing or building in the Yampa Valley! Jim, has been an outstanding Agent helping me to acquire, evaluate and sell properties in Colorado. I Highly recommend his services! -- Sam B - Steamboat Springs, CO
From my first online inquiry, Jim impressed. He responded within minutes, information in hand, ready to work, and was able to show me properties the same weekend. It took about a year to find my ideal property, there was no pressure, Jim kept me updated on the market while I waited and searched. When I finally found a place I could not immediately get to Steamboat so Jim did all my legwork! He provided detailed descriptions and all the information I needed to move forward, and he continued checking on the property during the entire process, even catching a few items the inspector missed. There are so many great things to say about Jim. I completely trust him and I am so grateful he was the one I selected to become my agent.
Moving to Steamboat Springs we wanted a friendly neighborhood, great views and a vaulted ceiling! Jim was incredibly knowledgeable, professional and responsive. He helped to keep us positive when we thought we were never going to find what we really wanted. Jim's dedication to showing us properties as soon as they came on the market ensured we didn't miss out on our perfect home. And more recently, Jim helped us purchase the 2-acres where we plan to build our dream home! -- Luisa & Scott H - Steamboat Springs, Colorado
My wife and I recently bought a home and Jim was our Realtor. It is my pleasure to give Jim Walters the highest possible marks. Jim is an expert Realtor and a world class negotiator. His pleasant, low key demeanor ensures you will have a pleasant experience, especially if, like us, this was your first home purchase and had no idea what was going on. Jim made sure we made all our deadlines and stayed on schedule. We could not have made a better choice than having Jim Walters represent us. -- Gaylon K - Hayden, CO
I didn't know Jim until I hired him as my real estate professional for my resort property investment. Even though we had just met, he was as attentive as if we'd been friends for years. I have already recommended him to others for his focused work mixed with his personality/easy likability.
Jim was the Realtor who represented me and two other partners in the sale of a resort condo in Steamboat Springs. This particular sale was quite complicated and required extensive negotiations and careful attention to every detail and deadline. Jim’s real estate knowledge and local expertise combined with thoughtful strategy and patience really helped our partnership obtain the outcome desired in a difficult real estate environment. I would recommend Jim for any real estate transaction in any price range.
I found Jim via the internet when inquiring about a property in Steamboat Springs. He quickly responded to my questions and was so helpful in finding houses that met my many requests. I was still living in Oklahoma when the house hunting process began, and Jim worked well with me over the long distance. When I actually came to Steamboat for a job interview, Jim had properties all lined up and I saw several in one day. After making my decision, we continued the buying process while I was still living in Oklahoma. Jim was knowledgeable, professional and so helpful. He assisted me finding a loan officer and was always available to answer any questions. He even pointed out great places to eat and go snow shoeing! I can not say enough good things about Jim. I would highly recommend him as a realtor!!
Jim made my home-buying experience a pleasure. Even though my purchase was a small one, he never failed to make me feel like my house or my time was worth millions. Home-buying is a stressful time, and he did an excellent job of defusing that stress, and making the process smooth and hassle free. I won't hesitate to enlist him again for my home-buying and selling needs. -- Kurt Sr - Steamboat Springs, Colorado
With not having a lot of experience in buying a vacation property, in particular one several hours away from our home, it was wonderful to get connected with Jim. He was very knowledgeable about the local area, the property associations, and loan requirements. Jim gave us a wide selection of listings to view and helped us weight the pros and cons of each community. After an offer was made, Jim negotiated on our behalf and was able to get the price reduced and added a buyers credit to the contract! In addition, he stopped by the property during the inspection period to ensure that all of our concerns were addressed. From start to finish, Jim was very responsive to our questions and kept communication open so everything stayed on track. We highly recommend Jim! -- Melissa A - Denver, CO
As a Seller, I was delighted with Jim's knowledge, professionalism and most importantly, his ability to get property sold! Jim has now successfully sold four properties on our behalf but perhaps the most impressive sale was our most recent - not only did he find the Buyer (actually, multiple Buyers) for our Trappeurs condo but we closed within 8 weeks of our original instruction. Thanks Jim! -- Paul & Louise S - United Kingdom

We wanted to move from town to some acreage and Jim showed us this house on 5 acres that had some water issues. The seller was not willing to discuss anything and he was not taking advice from his agent. Jim was able to was able to work with the seller's agent and bring the seller around. It was Jim's professional persistence which brought about the sale. Jim will help you meet your goal. We love our new home!
If you are looking for a real estate agent in Yampa Valley, JIM WALTERS is your man!! Purchasing investment property out of state can be daunting, but Jim made it extremely simple. His knowledge of the real estate market and his connections within the community is remarkable. He was very responsive to all our needs/questions and he always communicated clearly. I have recommended Jim to numerous friends and they all had positive experiences!

My wife and I were interested in buying property in Steamboat and a friend suggested we contact Jim Walters. He spent an afternoon with us, showed us numerous properties and very efficiently learned what we liked and didn't like! He was very knowledgeable about the market and had good ideas about where it was headed. Nice guy with lots of experience and great people skills. Although we ended-up not buying in Steamboat, he maintains contact with periodic emails and phone calls.
