“Jim and Claire are a blessing to work with. They were very patient with us through the process of buying our house. Claire was even a big help with our kids while we looked and finalized negotiations. Jim is very thorough and gifted at communicating with agents and lenders. He keeps immaculate records and gives great information related to the timeline to closing. Jim and Claire helped us in taking stress off even after being denied on our first offer. They encouraged us to press on. We are grateful for their servants’ attitudes.”

“Jim was very knowledgeable and thorough regarding the real estate market and sale of my home. I felt like I was in great hands and did not worry about anything slipping through the cracks. I always felt my best interest was at heart and I would recommend Jim to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.”
– Regina D. (2015 Seller, Briarcreek)
“Overall it was a great experience working with Jim on buying and selling my home. I have bought in the past and the experience was lots smoother when dealing with Jim. If he doesn’t know the answer to a question, he finds out and stays in communication. Prior agents I have worked with would take a lot longer to respond to questions or not give honest answers. I really appreciate his help through the process.”
– Hisham F. (2015 Seller, Colorado Crossing)
“Jim and Claire are like my parents when it comes to making sure that my family and I live in great areas of Austin. I absolutely trust them to guide me in any real estate decisions. They are honest, patient and kind. I have met many real estate agents, but Jim and Claire (Jim’s assistant) are definitely my first and only choice for my housing decisions.”
– Juan C. & Nancy N. (2015 Buyer, Rancho Alto)
“Jim is an expert in the home buying process. He provided me with truthful insight and clear information and advice about the area I was searching in and helped me narrow down what I really wanted. I moved to the Austin area in July 2014 and Jim took me on a tour of various Austin communities to get a feel and vibe for different areas. Jim is a class act and a great Realtor; I highly recommend Jim and Claire!”
– Jody G. (2015 Buyer, Southpark Meadows)
“Working with Jim and Claire has been a very good experience. Jim is a very easy agent to work with. He is very knowledgeable, honest, prompt, and has very good communication skills. The process of buying and selling my home was very easy and smooth. I would recommend them to anyone who likes individualized as well as general services. Jim was on top of everything, all I had to do was sign the papers. I could not have asked for better service. Thank you Jim and Claire!!”
– Sanaa F. (2015 Seller, Colorado Crossing)
“Jim Gilbert was very helpful in our buying process. He would respond to our phone calls and emails in time so that we did not waste our time waiting for his reply. He answered all our questions to the best of his knowledge. His wife, Claire, was a fun person to work with as well. I would recommend both Jim and Claire Gilbert as your real estate agent and assistant.”
– Bijaya and Reet D. (2015 Buyers, Ranch at Brushy Creek)
“It is a pleasure to work with Jim Gilbert as realtor for any individual or family searching for the ideal home for their unique situation. We were first time home buyers who had been renting for several years and were ready to make the move to purchase our own home. We are expecting our first baby girl in June and moving in my father-in-law with us. We needed a larger home and were looking to find a home and move quickly!
– Leslie & Justin D. (2015 Buyers, Bauerle Ranch)
Jim had an initial meeting with us and paid close attention to our needs and wants in a single family home as well as our budgetary limitations. He made excellent use of the relevant search engines and real estate databases to quickly find us a variety of homes for sale. We never wasted our time with homes that were out of our price range or not in line with our needs.
Once we found our dream home, together we discussed a deal that was good for us and made the seller happy as well. We were extremely pleased with the timing, especially in the current market situation. He knows southwest Austin like the back of his hand. There is nothing that escapes Jim’s attention when it comes to property for sale in this area, including but not limited to school districts, market prices, builders, future land plans.
We found Jim to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were the only customers, although we know that was not the case. He returned all phone calls and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. Jim was always very honest and upfront and all his advice was very useful.
We are pleased to recommend Jim Gilbert to anyone looking to buy a home. If we ever need to move again, he will be our first choice in real estate agents. If you want to discuss our experience in more detail please feel free to ask Jim for our contact information and contact us.”
“In August my wife and I started looking at houses. I asked my brother for the name of his realtor due to his satisfaction with him. My brother sent me Jim Gilbert’s information and Jim started digging right away. He was very knowledgeable of the market and patient. In late August my wife and I picked a home and had Jim put in an offer. That is when Jim’s patience really showed through. Even though we had trouble with the other realtor getting back to us with issues even after the offer was accepted, Jim continued to be up front and transparent. I know this process would have been much worse without Jim and his wife working for us. So to me it was easy to see that if you want someone dedicated to your home buying process, you need to call Jim and Claire.”
– Robert & Kristina D. (2014 Buyers, Green Meadows, Buda)
“There’s no doubt that the team of Claire and Jim would be an asset to anyone needing to buy or sell property. Buyers & sellers of real estate often get caught up in the emotional roller coaster of the transaction. When a firm hand is needed to keep things steady, Claire & Jim will be there to provide that steady hand. Jim’s experience helps to catch over-sights and lapses that would make for a rough & difficult transaction. You’re in good hands with Claire & Jim.”
– Larry & Sandra Elliott (Buyers, Elgin)
“It is our pleasure to recommend Jim Gilbert as a real estate agent for anyone searching for their ideal home. Initially, we dealt with Jim online because we weren’t living in the Austin area. At our first meeting, we knew we had made the right decision. Jim knew exactly what we were looking for and did not waste our time with homes out of our price range or that did not meet our needs. Jim is a very attentive agent and always returned our phone calls, texts and emails promptly. We never felt neglected. We felt that he truly cared. Jim is very personable, honest, and dependable which are valuable assets that are hard to find. If we ever sell or buy again, Jim will be our realtor.”
– Bill & Lola M. (Buyers, Sunfield)
“We are writing to recommend Jim & Claire Gilbert as realtor and assistant with Sky Realty. We met the Gilberts a year ago while shopping online for a realtor to sell our home. They called back and came to our home to introduce themselves. They provided us with their personal history and how they came to be realtor & assistant. They emphasized their work ethics which included honesty and integrity when it comes to working for their clients. They provided us with valuable information on what to do to get our home ready to sell. They understood our terms in needing time to complete repairs. They kept in touch with us throughout the year and when all work was completed they were the first we called to see the finished product. They paid attention to detail of what we spent on the updates, and provided us with effective information on what updated homes were selling for in our neighborhood. We sat down and came up with a marketing plan and listed the home. Our home sold in an amazing 14 days and closed 30 days later.
Jim & Claire were always available if it were a phone call, text message, e-mail, or coming over to let us in the house when we were locked out. They always communicated effectively with all parties involved. We felt like we were their most important clients which they were with us each step of the way to the very end.
Jim and Claire went above and beyond our expectations of realtor & assistant and are confident they display this professionalism to all of their clients.
If you have any questions, ask Jim to give us your phone number or email address and we will contact you to answer any questions.”
– Michael and Sandra Benson (Seller, Legend Oaks)
“I can highly recommend Jim Gilbert to be anyone’s realtor. He gave our old house a thorough walk-through, with us. He told us the items we should address, such as touch-up paint, and install new carpet upstairs. When the house was on the market, I had to be out of town, and he handled all the details long distance, keeping me well-informed. The house was sold within 3 days, and then he walked me patiently through the paperwork. I do appreciate Jim’s attention to detail, going above & beyond, to secure our asking price, and making our sale a success! Thank you!”
