Sixteen years in the business and the background of a second generation realtor, coupled with a childhood spent in the Chicago suburbs, makes Jim LaHa, broker associate with Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty a hometown-savvy, ready-for-anything kind of agent. With expertise across first-time buyer to luxury client and everything in between, LaHa is uniquely able to help any buyer or seller navigate the Chicagoland market.
“I’ve been living here my whole life and I’ve worked this area for as long as I can remember,” he says. “I’m proud to say I’ve accomplished two post-recession price records in the area this past year, and have been a part of seeing this market grow.” Today, LaHa employs modern marketing and technology while also exhibiting the characteristics of customer service that have helped earn him Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty’s Platinum Producer honor.
“My clients are going to feel like they’re my only client,” he says. “I go above and beyond to exceed their expectations, thinking outside the box and using the best marketing to showcase their property.” Know for a straightforward, honest rapport with clients, LaHa makes a point to set expectations up front with clients, giving them no-nonsense direction that has helped net him a business that is largely built on referrals from past clients and fellow agents.
Active in his community and involved in local charity organizations, LaHa channels his business into more than his own pocket – he channels into ways to serve and donate to local causes and make a difference in the community.
“My father Bruce is a realtor and a part of the community that I now have the privilege of serving and helping to grow through my clients,” LaHa says. “As a second generation realtor, it’s an honor to be leading this market and bringing my clients the best service possible.”
