" We found Jim Toronto to be highly knowledgeable in the business, highly professional and honest, and everything one could ask for in an agent."

– Jim Simpson

" Jim is totally comfortable letting buyers be a full participant in the process…We were a three-person team. His suggestions for updates and how to stage the home were spot-on…I honestly think that having Jim as our realtor was the reason we ended up with an offer within hours of the property going on the market…Jim is so clearly plugged into the Washington real estate market and so networked in with other realtors, that as a seller, you feel like Jim has increased the value of your property by mere association with him."

– Kate Williamson Arcieri

" Jim’s honesty and integrity are assets to McEnearney Asscociates and we would not hesitate to recommend him to others."

– Ellen and Gary Bisson

" We interviewed 3 realtors from 3 different firms before making our decision…we selected Jim because he sold homes in our neighborhood…and because he lives in and has a vested interest in Arlington County. He was professional and diligent in his marketing plan and honest in his opinions about what would work and what would not work. He did a wonderful job."

– Ken and Rachel Meissner

" I was very pleased with the services that I received from Jim Toronto. Jim helped me find my current home (in Arlington). In connection with the purchase, he found an excellent home inspector and was able to get all my questions answered promptly. Jim also sold my condo in Fairlington Village. Jim was able to close a contract at my “asking price” within 10 days of putting it on the market. His finesse in handling them (two interested parties) was critical to getting a higher bid."

– Katherine M. Breaks

" Jim Toronto is a professional is every sense of the word. We will recommend him and McEnearney Associates to anyone who asks."

– Cheryl E. Parrella

" Throughout the process (of selling our home), we were confident of Jim’s dedication to our interests and sure that we were being represented with the highest integrity. We felt he did everything he possibly could do to keep our home in the public eye. In the end, the sale was smooth and easy for us."

– Judy Rodgers Johnson

" We were very pleased with Mr. Toronto’s constant assistance in helping us through every aspect of this process. His professionalism and many years of experience were tremendous assets in enabling our sale to go remarkably smoothly and quickly. We found his very detailed knowledge of our former North Arlington neighborhood to be of great value as we made marketing and sales decisions about our property. We intend to use his services again in the future."

– James K. Finley

" Whether preparing and staging our home so it would make a great first impression or finding us the right houses in the right locations, Jim Toronto has made all of our buying and selling experiences positive ones."

– Julianne and Tim Belevetz
