Happy Clients Are The Key To My Success!



My wife and I have purchased three homes and listed two with Jim. We are very pleased with all aspects of Jim's service, but have been most impressed with his help in purchasing properties. Jim has given us wise counsel that has saved us thousands of dollars on the homes we purchased with his help. He has also been very patient as we looked at many homes before making an offer to purchase. I am pleased to recommend Jim for any real estate needs someone in the Wake or Johnston County areas might have.

James did a great job locating properties and did extensive negotiations to work on acquiring the property at the best price. He had to take several price offers to seller in order to facilitate the cost of repairs needed for the property being covered in the selling price. I would highly recommend James for his hard work, integrity and determination in doing whatever it took to close the sale. James is personable and easy to work with and worked professionally throughout the entire process.

Jim is very knowledgeable about all aspects of purchasing a home and guides you through the process with ease. He knows the area and can make great recommendations and suggestions. I trust him and highly encourage anyone looking for an agent to call Jim.

We were looking to sell our house quickly because I had to relocate quickly for my job. Jim worked with us to get it on the market as soon as possible. We received 2 offers in 2 weeks and got what we were asking for. Thankful we chose him as out Realtor.

Jim's style meshed well with ours and we were comfortable with him from the start. Always available to his clients, he is a great sounding board and counsel as it relates to the selling/buying process. He knows the local area and works to understand your needs and wishes as well as making sure you understand the market and are able to look at things objectively.

I appreciate Jim's candor and most importantly his integrity. 

Did I mention we sold our house almost immediately after we went on the market? Even still, Jim even made the at times stressful selling process better by listening and good communication.

Jim is our agent.

We wanted to commend Jim Oksen for the wonderful job he did in helping us find our home. Being first time homebuyers we were very nervous about the whole process, however, after being referred to Jim, he made the process pleasant. From our first phone conversation, I felt confident that we were working with a true professional and Jim proved that time and time again. He tirelessly made himself available during the entire search, purchase and closing process. We viewed homes on two Sunday afternoons and he made the experience wonderful. He was also knowledgeable of the area and properties. Jim's positive "can do" attitude pushed the process along. Jim was absolutely wonderful! He was always prompt and thorough in responding to my numerous questions and concerns. I appreciate his consistent communication, knowledge of the market and expertise. I know that we had an expert on our side and it was very comforting. Thanks again, Jim for your hard work. I will certainly refer anybody that may be interested in buying or selling to you! Many, many thanks for the job well done!

My name is Mike Pellegrini and I am writing to you to let you know what a wonderful agent you have in your office.  He worked very hard for months to help me find the home of my dreams.  He is professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and caring.  I could not have asked for a better agent to guide me through the daunting home buying process.  I think he was more nervous than I was as settlement approached.  Not because he feared the process but because he really cared that I found that right home, in the right neighborhood at the right price.  And I am happy to say that I did.  He is a true credit to HPW and I thank him for all that he has done.

Our Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston agent was the BEST Realtor we have ever worked with. Not only was he extremely knowledgeable of the area but he was very responsive to our needs and timeline. He always gave sound advice and also, didn't bug us to death when we said we just wanted time to think. He is extremely patient and understanding. He has an eagle eye when it comes to critiquing homes, properties and neighborhoods. With him in the lead, we were able to find the PERFECT home for us, in the PERFECT neighborhood and of course the PERFECT location! I'm handing out his business card to all my friends!!!

I can't thank you enough for how you handled all of this.  I have to say this has by far been the most stressful time in my whole life, and you gently did everything possible to reduce that stress and make this go smoothly.  You are not only good at what you do, but also a gentleman and a pleasure to work with.  Thank you for everything, and you will come highly recommended from me to everyone I know.

What a GEM!!  I'll try to convey how PLEASED AND SATISFIED I am with the TOP NOTCH SERVICE your HPW agent provided me not only during but also after the transaction. 
His thoughtful, and innovative approach to a ratified contract enabled me to purchase my home.  He made THE DIFFERENCE and is still doing so today by his follow ups and offering his assistance wherever needed.
He personifies the Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston motto!
I would MOST DEFINITELY refer him to my family and friends.

Elizabeth R.

I just wanted to thank you again for everything you did for me to be a homeowner.  You are very professional and kind.  I would recommend you to anyone who's looking to buy a home.  It's still hard to believe that I own a house now.  I am very excited and motivated in many ways.

I want to tell what wonderful experience my wife and I had buying a home this past September in Stonehenge Park.

Our agent was recommended to us by our son, who could not say enough about his experience working with HPW and we are so happy that he did.

We have bought and sold homes in seven states and we have never had such a professional and satisfying experience as we’ve had with him. He was very proactive in every stage of the sale. His follow up is impeccable, not to mention probably the most courteous and nicest person we’ve dealt with. We live in Montgomery Alabama and most of this sale was done long distance so you can imagine the strain trying to deal with everything 500 miles away. He took that strain away and made this very pleasurable.

You need to make sure you hang on to him, someone of his integrity and work ethic is hard to come by these days.

James Oksen Jr Broker/Realtor

Helping people successfully buy and sell real estate in the Triangle area since 2005! 

     My name is James Oksen but most people just call me Jim. I moved to the Triangle area in 2005 from California and have been selling real estate since my arrival. Prior to real estate I was an office manager for a small transportation company where I wore just about every hat in the business from sweeping floors to customer service. In my first 5 years with the transportation company I helped take them from annual revenues of $2,000,000 to $5,000,000. I contribute this success to the relationships and trust I created with my customers and clients in knowing I could get the job done. I have taken these skills and systems and have applied them to my real estate business and have seen an average annual growth of about 25%.  I have been married to my beautiful wife for 20 years and we have 2 wonderful children together ages 16 and 18. We live in the Garner area and enjoy the outdoors as often as we can, from golfing, dirt bike riding, fishing, hiking and everywhere in between. So if you are looking for a full time real estate agent that is hard working and can get the job done, call today, I am ready to go to work for you!
