"We have worked with Jim and Helena on several occasions to help us sell three homes and purchase two in the Denver Metro area. In each case, we were extremely pleased with the level of service and professionalism they provided. We were always assured that we would be in good hands and trusted that our interests would be held in the highest regard.
As purchasing agents, both Jim and Helena have significant knowledge of the Denver metro area residential real estate market, communities, resale values, school district's, future developments and trends in the market. We felt very comfortable and secure knowing that the homes we were shown met our criteria and were the best available on the market at that time.
As selling agents, their marketing is extremely well done, with exceptional photography, brochures and online marketing. Jim fully understands the economic dynamics of how to list a home at the optimum price to sell quickly for the maximum price. Helena is excellent at recommending what you can do to make your home market-ready to present well for selling. In addition, Jim understands how to present the home to the appraiser to maximize the appraised value.
We have and will continue to highly recommend the Buckley’s to anyone in need of residential real estate services!"

"Absolutely recommend Jim & Helena Buckley with Kentwood Real Estate for any Real Estate. Needs in the Denver area. I have sold two homes with them and both sold in under 3 days for over the asking price. I have purchased two homes with them and paid under asking for both. They gave me solid advice on things to do in order to prepare my homes for sale and I listened to everything they said. For purchasing, they were able to help us determine what we wanted and didn’t want in a home, showed us lots of homes and they helped submit strong offers that got accepted!!!"- John & Paula Millard -
At the beginning of the process, Helena was at the forefront of staging and preparing the house for photos, which led us to receive multiple offers the first weekend on the market, including one prior to any showings. Jim did a terrific job marketing and negotiating to get the house sold quickly and at a price above listing (and our expectations)! They are very professional and make a wonderful team."

"Even though we were not on a rushed timeline to find a new home, Jim assured me that if he did his part right, we might actually find the house we wanted the first or second time out looking. I was sure the process would take a month or more, so I didn't get my hopes up, but by that afternoon he'd provided a list of potential properties that were all very close matches to what I wanted. One particular property caught our eye, but he said we would have to wait until the 2nd day for an appointment. As it turned out, Jim was right! He found us a home that literally checked every single box I asked for, and within the price range we felt comfortable. The property had other potential buyers, but Jim went the extra mile, reaching out to the listing agents to talk about our family, and sold the sellers on the idea of us fitting perfectly into the neighborhood. They took our offer, and we were able to close on the property just 3 short weeks later! Jim kept us up to date on every step along the way, making sure we knew exactly what was needed on our side to complete our transaction. Buying a house should always be this stress-free and easy!"

"There is none better than Jim and Helena Buckley when it comes to understanding the Real Estate market and how to help you make your way through it, whether buying or selling. They are a great professional team and I highly recommend them without reservation. You will enjoy working with them."
- Dr. Jerry G. Price -
"Jim was a dream to work with. He always made himself available at the last minute to be sure we were seeing listings on the day they popped on the market. He even was able to arrange showings before some houses were officially on the market. It took us a while to find our dream home. When we did; he was able to negotiate a deal for us in the midst of multiple contracts.
Throughout the entire deal, Jim took care of all the inspections, repairs, and quotes with ease. All the way through the closing and after. I really appreciate all his help and guidance. We were able to find a home and a friend. Thank you Jim for everything."

"I would highly recommend Jim Buckley. I had my condo, located in the Tech center, on the market for 8 months with only 6 showings and no offers. Jim suggested some minor painting and staging. We put it back on the market and had 6 showings with 2 full-price offers in 6 days. We closed in 2 weeks above asking price."

"The first thing that struck me was the thoroughness of their research. Jim brought a 3 ring binder with all recent comparable sales in the area as well as properties on the market for sale. Jim went into detail on each property; square footage, updates, finished/unfinished basements, lot size, etc. Based on his comprehensive analysis we arrived at our listing price.
Helena did a great job helping us to stage our home; removing clutter and arranging furniture and accessories so we could present our home in the best light. Once our home was staged they brought in a professional photographer. We felt their photography and staging was the biggest factor contributing to the number of showings and ultimately the sale. Once we had an offer, Jim walked us through the contract step by step, offering his opinion and explanation of each item. We arrived at a mutually agreeable price and Jim explained each step that would follow and what we could expect from the inspection, appraisal, etc. He also maintained contact with the buyer’s agent to keep things going smoothly right up to the closing.
Based on my experience, I would certainly recommend the Buckleys. It is also worth mentioning that they are in the business full time; this is not a sideline or part time job for them. That full time commitment was evident throughout the entire process."

- Barbara Gallagher -
"We worked with Jim Buckley on buying our first home in August 2020. From beginning to end, Jim was incredibly helpful during the process! As this was our first time going through this process, he sat down with us to explain what we should expect in detail. When we wanted to see homes or had outstanding offers, he kept us up to date each step of the way. As he has many years of experience in the Denver metro area, he was so knowledgeable, and I looked to him for advice frequently. We ended up buying our dream home with Jim and could not have done that without his help and expertise! He truly went the extra mile for us through the offer, inspection, appraisal, and closing processes. I would recommend Jim and Helena to everyone and anyone (and already have!). Thank you Jim!!"
