Jim Onesti and I are working together. I sell 60-70 units a year and I have to say how impressed I am with Jim Onesti and your team. It is run like the most professional real estate group I have dealt with yet. Below is one small example of it. I did not have to ask Jim and Melanie but they added my name to to the email distribution list so I know when my units are being shown.I'm working with Jim on our first new construction project starting on Monday and he is a super person and agent to deal with. I wish you and your team the best of luck!

My wife, children, and myself recently had the pleasure of working with Ryan McCann and Jim Onesti of the McCann team. Due to a series of unexpected challenges, none of which were ours or the McCann teams fault, our move ended up being one of the most hectic and trying times of our lives. We were very lucky to have had Ryan and Jim on our side. Both Ryan and Jim spent hours negotiating the hurdles of FHA and working overtime to make sure that we were going to end up in our dream house. While my wife and I sat in the hospital welcoming our new daughter Ryan was on the phone wheeling and dealing with our seller's agent. I felt at many moments that there was no way we were going to get this to work but Ryan works magic and kept that sparkle of hope alive. I know that had it not been for Ryan I would not be sitting in my dream home. I also know from experience that most brokers would not have taken the time or made even half the effort that Ryan made. They also have a great supporting team and every person we were exposed to exceeded any expectation that I had. I can not speak highly enough of the service provided by Ryan and Jim. Every step of the way they were responsive and made it feel like they had as much invested in the process as we did. Our situation was unique and very challenging but Ryan and Jim were the rocks that got us through. I can recommend both of these gentlemen for all home buying situations good and bad. If you do find yourselves buying or selling and you have Ryan McCann or Jim Onesti in your corner just sit back and breath because you are working with the BEST!!
