Real estate is deep in Jim LaHa’s roots. A second-generation Realtor, LaHa grew up in the Chicago suburbs and currently resides in the South Loop. Following in his father’s footsteps, he brings clients his first-hand experience and insight from growing up in the business. That’s why over his 17-year dedicated career, he’s consistently recognized as one of Chicagoland’s top producing Realtors.
LaHa is an agent who listens to his clients’ goals and crafts a game plan to meet them. Every one of LaHa’s listings gets professional photographs, videos and 3-D tours, regardless of the price point. He often uses social media, especially Facebook and Instagram, to attract buyers to properties.
“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.” Known for a straightforward, honest rapport with clients, LaHa makes a point of setting expectations up front with clients, giving them no-nonsense direction. In a business built largely on referrals from past clients, this type of client relationship means everything.
LaHa is one of Jameson Sotheby’s Platinum Producers and was listed as one of Chicago Magazine’s “Best of Chicago.” He’s also set sales price records in many of the areas he serves, most of which are in the southwest and western suburbs.
With the fast-changing pace of real estate, LaHa keeps his finger on the pulse of the latest housing inventory, financing and market activity, then maximizes the value of that data for the success of his clients. Whether working with a first-time buyer or marketing a seller’s luxury home, he is committed to helping his clients through each step of the transaction process. His record of achievements, market knowledge and expertise make him one of the sought-after brokers in the competitive Chicago market.
