What My Clients Say
Catherine & Josip B. (May 2017):
"I'd like to say thank you for all your thoughtfulness and knowledge you have given us over the past 8 years when you found our first home for us. We look forward to our personalized calendar and birthday cards you send every year. You are always there to answer our questions and you go above and beyond as I'm sure many of your clients can attest to. If anyone needs an amazing realtor, Jim is your guy."
John P. & Bonnie R. (Aug 2016):
"Bonnie and I would like to thank you sooooo much for all you have done as an agent. Also Bonnie and I have become quite fond of you and we miss you a lot. Thank you also for your gifts - we will surely think of you when we have a special drink. Please keep in touch & we will recommend you as much as possible. Send up some extra business cards. Take care"
Andrea & Andrew A (Aug 2016):
"Thank you for your assistance in finding us a home."
Brandon & Irene P. (June 2015):
"Thank you for your diligence and your patience with us during the search of our home. We couldn't have asked for a better person to help us find our first home!"
Michelle D. (June 2015):
"Jim has been amazing, I am so happy during my interview process three years ago that he is the one I picked. Even through the ups and downs of personal changes in my requirements, Jim has been supportive and the minute I called saying "hey, I found a place", he was right there making appointments and getting things done. Closing is June 5th, getting so excited and don't think this process of buying and selling a house would have been so enjoyable without Jim's expertise and calming tone."
Kevin and Veronica Y. (Apr 2015):
"My wife and I spent about 6 months searching for our home with Jim Datlen. Throughout that period, Jim was extremely patient with us to find out what we were looking for in terms of neighbourhood, property type, price, etc. We really had no idea of what we were looking for at the start, so Jim took us to several neighbourhoods and more properties than I can remember. He was always on time, knowledgeable about what to look out for (in properties and in contracts), and guided us through multiple bidding opportunities using rigorous market analysis. Jim never pushed us into making a decision and truly looked out for our best interests. He even provided us with multiple contacts for all points of the real estate transaction (property inspector, mortgage broker, real estate lawyer), etc.
I can't say enough kind words to Jim in helping us purchase our dream home. He was a professional in every sense of the word and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an agent.
Marcus & Rita C. (Mar 2015):
"Jim was able to pinpoint the needs in a house that we expressed and we were able to purchase our dream home."
Sang-Hun M. & Bo-Young L. (Jan 2015):
"As first time home buyers in this crazy GTA housing market, the whole process of purchasing a home was daunting, to say the least. The first three real estate agents we came across left a less-than-positive impression -- one was simply out for a quick commission, the other pretended to know more than she actually did, and the third left out some key things about the neighbourhoods he was trying to sell us. Then we found Jim Datlen. Not only did he exude a kind and calming aura, he was honest with us right from the start. His patience and good humour with our countless questions, his recommendations of very reliable people who do good work, and his ability to communicate things clearly was remarkable. Suggestions were offered, but we were always given room to make our own choices at our own time. No pressure ever. All along, there were many helpful tips he freely shared about the home-buying process from his many years in the business, and about living in Brampton from his own experience as a resident here. It's so clear that Jim loves what he does and it was reassuring knowing that he had our back and was looking out for our best interest."
Anna Rita C. (Nov 2014):
"Jim was very thorough in all aspects of my listing, showings and the ultimate sale of my home. My previous experiences with other agents have not been great, in fact awful, and Jim restored my faith that there are some agents that do care about their clients. I am fully satisfied with the service he provided and overall experience. I would definitely recommend him to anyone interested in buying or selling a home. I'm glad I got to work with him."
KB & Sarina O. (Sep 2014):
"This was our first time buying a home. Jim Datlen was an absolute delight to work with. Jim was kind and considerate, but also thorough and honest. Jim's commitment to integrity is what made us so comfortable to enlist his help in finding our new home."
Laurie M. & Scott L. (Sep 2014):
"Need a real estate agent extraordinaire?
Well contact Jim Datlen. Four years after our purchase he still sends us home-iversary cards right about on our anniversary date. That is a guy who really cares about finding you the right home. It was our first purchase and Jim showed us a gauntlet of choice, even a haunted house! Didn't stop until he surprised us with our entire checklist of a property. Jim, you are really great at what you do. Four years later we are still in love with our home,
Francine & Geoff C. (July 2013):
"Jim...What a journey house-hunting has been!! We are so thankful for all that you have done to assist us in buying our first home! Your patience, expertise, advice & integrity make you such an exceptional REALTOR®! We're really gonna miss you & I hope you know that we sincerely look forward to doing business with you in the future because you're simply the best! With our gratitude..."
Nazira & Zahra S. (Dec 2011):
"Just a little note to say how very grateful we are for all that you've done for us. We have found you to be very friendly, courteous, patient and yet very professional and knowledgeable. We want you to know that we have been very happy with your service and will definitely be referring you to family and friends. All the best!"
Vicki P. (Aug 2011):
"When it came time for my brother and myself to sell the family home after the death of my mother, a friend recommended Jim Datlen to me. Since my brother lived out of town I initiated the contact and met with him. The first time we met I felt comfortable with Jim, he wasn't a pushy real estate agent who promised you all kinds of things, he was straight-forward and honest with his opinion on what the house was worth. We ended up with an offer which fell through and then when I fell sick and was hospitalized, Jim stepped up to the plate and cancelled all showings on the house even though the contract hadn't expired, and waited for me to recuperate. We listed the house again in the spring and we successfully sold the house. Jim helped me to find another place to live, which I am very happy with. He offered his opinion with each house we looked at, checked the age and condition of the furnace, windows, etc. Through all this Jim has become a very good friend and is a real estate agent that is there to help in any way he can, offers his advice, and above all isn't pushy. I would not hesitate to recommend Jim to anyone who is looking for an honest real estate agent."
Julie S. & Scott S. (Apr 2011):
"We would like to thank you for helping us find our dream home and for selling our current home so quickly; we had a conditional offer within 11 hours of listing and the sale was finalized within the week!
Working with you has been a pleasure. Your professionalism, knowledge and especially your patience when it came to finding a home that satisfied our wants and needs was exceptional and you made our experience as first time sellers a great one.
You are definitely a great asset to Century 21 and we would have no hesitation in recommending you and Century 21 to anyone looking for a real estate agent. In fact, we did so just recently and were pleased to hear our neighbours got in touch with you, ended up listing their property with you and it sold in 48 hours!
Thank you again for all your efforts."
Melissa W. & Rodney B. (Nov 2010):
"Rodney and I just want to say thanks for all your hard work, time and patience in finding us a home.....you made it the best experience ever...."
Fred N. (Apr 2010):
"I would highly recommend Jim as your agent for either selling your home or buying. Jim believes in personal service that goes beyond most agents and is always there to answer your questions promptly. Plus friendly, professional service. Jim makes sure the job gets done and puts in that extra mile before and after your sale or purchase."
Joe B. & Catherine B. (May 2009):
"Thanks for helping us with our first home! It was quite a journey, but with your help, we got here! Thanks!"
The Fernandez Family (October 2008):
"We wanted to thank you so much for the thoughtful gifts. They are great and came in handy. We also wanted to thank you for your help and hard work in getting us our little house. We are so happy."
Ingrid R. & Astra C. (August 2008):
"Thank you very much for the delightful housewarming gifts. But, we are far more appreciative of you working to get us this home!!"
Brian G., Renfro Canada Inc., Mississauga (March 2008):
"Congratulations (on the new career) and yes I would be glad to pass your good name to our employees. You were very professional in all our dealings..."
Claire R. & David W. (February 2008):
