2815 NE 17TH AVENUE, PORTLAND, OR. (SOLD)
RON ALBANO (SOLD AND BOUGHT)
As the owner of a busy appraisal company located close-in NE Portland I deal with Portland realtors on a daily basis. There are a select few agents that I hold in the highest esteem and Jim Arnal is at the top of that list. I first became familiar with his skills as a client advocate in the course of my work as an appraiser. As a part of my job I analyze listings for the comparables sales I include in my appraisal reports. I would always make a mental note of who the listing agent was if I saw a strong price for the seller or who the buyer’s agent was if a saw a good buy for a buyer. Time and again I would notice that Jim was getting his buyers good deals on their home purchases and getting his sellers top value for their homes.
When it was time to sell my Irvington home I chose to use Jim. He did not disappoint. I could see why he was such a good agent and why his clients benefited by having him as their realtor. He put his heart and soul into getting my house sold. No detail was missed. When we got an offer, his strong negotiating skills were much appreciated. Since then, I have used Jim to put offers on two homes. Both times he was able to get my offer accepted when there was a competitive situation. In both cases it wasn’t only about making the highest offer but having the right negotiator. He is an invaluable asset in this current market where inventory is low.
Aside from being a great agent, I also consider Jim a good friend. He has a young family and puts them first. He is ethical and works tirelessly for his clients. I respect those traits tremendously. When asked who I would use to buy or sell home I tell them, without hesitation, Jim Arnal. – RON ALBANO (SELLER AND BUYER)
