Jim was excellent to work with. We had a very drawn out search process as we were moving from out of state, and Jim was very patient with us as we checked out properties. He moved quickly when we decided to put in an offer and was very insightful and experienced. He was also extremely fast to respond to us, be it an email or phone call. He is very knowledgeable and takes the time to explain everything he does. Whenever we decide to move again in the future, the first thing we'll do is call Jim!

We had a wonderful experience working with Jim. He was our realtor for selling our home and buying our new home and he was very helpful in both scenarios. He was patient with our questions, knowledgable about the process, and very attentive. We would highly recommend him!

Jim Meyer is a very experienced realtor, and I hired him in part because he is very knowledgeable about the Short North / Victorian Gate area. Jim's guidance through the selling and the buying process was priceless to me. Jim works hard to make sure the process goes smoothly for both sides of the deal, and he not only earned his commission, he earned my trust and respect.

I have known Jim for many years. He sold the first home I bought when I was in my 20's and found homes for two of my four brothers. Whenever anyone in the Cochran family needs a realtor (or any of our friends) we always go to Jim because he's the absolute best. When my partner and I decided to purchase a home together, I knew Jim was the only one for the job and he found us the perfect home and we couldn't be happier. If you are in the market to buy or sell a home, and let's face it, who isn't at one point or another in their lives, please reach out to Jim. He professional, very knowledgable and a pleasure to work with, especially considering purchasing or selling a home is one of the biggest decisions that you will make in your life. After knowing Jim for so many years, and having so many wonderful experiences with him, I'm proud to call him friend, not just realtor.

Jim Meyer came highly recommended from a few friends who used him as their realtor, in the past. They mentioned he was trustworthy, knowledgeable, friendly and well respected. After working with Jim, I couldn't agree more. He listened to my "wish list" of things I was looking for in a home, and used his extensive experience and knowledge of the local market to find me an amazing place that far exceeded my expectations. He had the consideration and expertise to walk me through the process of home buying from beginning to end. He was always available and patient with me, anytime I had questions and made me feel confident that I was a priority and an important client. He was a valuable resource throughout the entire transaction. Buying a home can be stressful and having Jim as a partner throughout the experience, made all the difference. I would highly recommend him, if you are buying or selling a home.

Jim Meyer was amazing. I was a first time home buyer, and I felt safe working with Jim. He helped me through the buying process, making sure I wasn't taken advantage of as a young home buyer. I called/texted him all hours of the day/night with potential houses I might want to see or other questions. He was very knowledgable and professional. After the closing process was over, Jim set me up with his painter, handyman, mason, etc. What a great experience! Jim, please be available in a few years when I want to sell my beautiful home and buy new.

As a first-time home buyer, I was really not sure to expect about the process, but James Meyer made it considerably less complicated by listening to what I wanted and my questions, and by sharing his knowledge and experience about the new home process. He found a property that was perfect for me -- a property that had several offers and lots of interest. I wasn't sure we had a chance, but Jim assured me he knew how to navigate through all the necessary protocols and position me as the preferred buyer. We talked through our strategy and he worked hard to make sure we had a winning proposal. His years of experience, hard work and positive attitude were the key to me closing on my dream home. Jim is responsive, professional, caring, smart, and has built great relationships in the business. He was able to recommend contractors for improvement projects and has kept in touch after the sale to make sure everything is going well. That says a lot about the kind of person he is -- he's about finding the right fit for the buyer, not just making a sale and moving on. I highly recommend calling Meyer & Dial if you're looking for someone to help guide you through the process, address your concerns, and help you seal the deal in this very competitive housing market.

Jim helped me sell a home almost 2 years ago and went so far above and beyond the call of duty that I felt incredibly well taken care of. So when it came time to start looking, I gave him a call. The first home we went to look at was the one we fell in love with and ultimately closed on! He listened to our requirements and found us the perfect solution. We had some challenges collecting some paperwork as we were wrapping up the process and he kept us calm and sane throughout and really helped navigate some interesting negotiations. He was straight forward but reassuring and really was the glue that kept the whole deal in play. Thanks to his help we are living in our dream home and can wholeheartedly recommend him for both sides of the process.

Jim Meyer is the finest real estate professional my husband and I have ever worked with. In addition to his company's resources and his extensive professional experience, there are three reasons for this. 1 ) style. He has a zen personality and makes the entire process relaxed and stress free. I'm a stressed out person by nature and he had a way of making every interaction pleasant. He gave us all the right advice on preparing our home (including using his own extensive list of outstanding contractors) and took care of the entire process for us. 2) honesty and integrity. He gives advice that is in his client's best interests. We never felt pressured, insulted, or that he was ever speaking from any interest except our own. 3) Caring and goes above and beyond. He has helped us out in really difficult times. I would have never expected jim to offer the help he did in a recent emergency situation but he did because he treats his clients as a neighbor and friend not just customer. Warmest.

My wife and I found a home that we loved, we just needed someone to represent us during the buying process. I called Jim on a Monday morning, Jim wasted no time and checked out the house that same day! By Tuesday evening we were in his office putting together an offer, it was a good thing because the sellers recieved multiple offers. If Jim had not moved so quickly and professionally we would have missed out on our dream home, thanks Jim!

Jim was the absolute best to work with when I was both buying and selling my condo. He goes above and beyond to make everything go as smoothly as possible. I recommend him to anyway looking for real estate in the area. He is professional, honest, organized, hard working, diligent, and enjoyable to work with. I could not have had a better all around experience. Thank you so much, Jim!

Never did I second guess the efforts that Jim put into my selling/buying processes. Upfront, honest, informative, calming, motivating, creative and so much a man of high regard for me and my needs. Relationships form opinions and opinions are what new relationships are built upon and without a doubt I could not have found anyone better in any way to have made my experience any more exhilarating.

Jim was the ultimate professional and partner thru the entire process of selling a condo...moving into a rental...and purchasing a home. His attention to detail, being a patient listener, knowledge of the markets and experience with all levels of real estate transactions made this a very comfortable and enjoyable process for us. I highly recommend Jim for all your real estate needs!

Jim Meyer was recommended to me when I started looking for a condo, and I felt so fortunate to benefit from his expertise. Jim has vast knowledge of the history of so many downtown buildings that was invaluable for vetting and understanding my options. Jim was responsive whenever I reached out, whether it was to express interest in a listing or to answer a question. He also is able to explain any part of the home-buying process. That is incredibly helpful -- even more so when you're a first-time home buyer like I was. He patiently guided me through every step of the process. He never told me what to do, but was open to sharing his insights and perspectives so I could make an informed decision. He was friendly, straightforward, and respectful, and he has some great stories about the real estate business -- some jaw-dropping, some hysterical -- which made the time we spent together even more fun.

I worked with Stephen Dial of Meyer&Dial as both my buying and selling agent. Stephen is extremely responsive and swift to expedite deals and made the entire process as painless as possible. He successfully executed a nine-offer bidding war for my sale resulting in 15 percent over asking price. On the buy side, he offered great advice on selection within an extremely tight inventory. Stephen is also very friendly and pleasant to work with. Highly recommended.

Stephen Dial came recommended by a friend and he did not disappoint. Though we were not 'motivated buyers' in the early months of working with him, he was a real trooper showing us various houses and condos all over the Columbus area at all hours, weekends/weekdays, etc. When we got serious, he was super attentive to detail and gave excellent advice, resulting in a great purchase deal. Stephen also helped with the sale of our old house. It was a tough first few weeks but Stephen helped us keep perspective and in the end, we were extremely pleased at the great price he got for us.

Stephen Dial was our realtor of choice to sell our Short North Condo. Stephen has an in depth knowledge of the area which resulted in pricing our condo appropriately. We felt Stephen had our back throughout the process and clearly set expectations of our journey to list and sell our property. Thank you Stephen!

Jim Meyer exceeded all our expectations! He made our first-time home buying experience enjoyable and smooth. His knowledge of the local housing market is extensive. He must have been inside most of the houses here, since he could share his thoughts on most of the properties on the spot! He is incredibly observant. Visiting houses with Jim was not only fun, but also educational. He is very reliable and responsive, even outside of the core business hours. Jim was always there when we needed guidance. We never felt rushed to make decisions, pressured to look at houses outside of our budget, or judged for asking basic questions. Also, he is one heck of a negotiator who takes pride in doing what’s best for his clients. It was such a pleasure and a privilege to work with Jim. We would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat.

This was our FIFTH real estate transaction with Stephen Dial at Meyer & Dial. Stephen takes the time to learn and understand what we're looking for in a property, find just the right one, and make the purchase (or sale) as smooth as possible. Meyer & Dial handle the marketing, the showings, and mounds of paperwork with ease. They're fluent in the latest technologies and techniques and we've been able to count on them to maximize the visibility of our listings. Their experience is invaluable when visiting a prospective property, getting your own home ready for sale, and during the inevitable sale negotiations. We would (will) use Meyer & Dial again and have already recommended them to friends who have also had excellent experiences with them!

I recently had the pleasure of working with Stephen Dial when looking for my new home. From day one Stephen was extremely responsive and had great suggestions for homes to view based on what I was looking for. All throughout the negotiations and closing he was there quickly handling any issues that may have arisen. If the time ever comes when I will be looking for a new home, there isn't any question on who my Realtor will be!
