What clients are saying...
James has been absolutely essential in this process. Our ideas about what we wanted were shifting continuously and James helped us stay calm and informed about what was happening in the market in the different neighborhoods we looked at. James was incredibly accommodating to our schedules and communication was always quick and clear. As crazy busy as this market has been, I never felt like we were anything other than top priority with James. Without him, we honestly could not have made it through this with such a perfect place as the outcome.
James toured me through a lot of properties that were NOT for me (by my own request) and when we found the one, he said ' let's make an offer!' I wasn't sure, but he did! James knows his clients, and I couldn't be happier! THANK YOU!

James was fantastic. He was patient throughout my whole home buying process - starting with duplexes and ending up with a condo. I plan on using James for all future real estate transactions going forward, he was that good. Don't hesitate.
As first-time homebuyers, James was an excellent and trusted resource to have. He knows how to identify indicators of potential structural and long-term problems, and he's honest with his advice and assessment of a property. We didn't feel any pressure from James to make a decision, and we appreciated his laid-back approach and prompt communication. Thank you, James, for your guidance and your willingness to drive all over southeastern Wisconsin until we found the right house!
James was professional, responsive to our texts and emails, and helped us to find the right house to meet our needs! We couldn't have done it without James! As first time home buyers, we had lots of questions and anxieties and James calmed us down and led us to buying our first home!
James was very helpful and kept the communication lines well open.
I had a very good experience working with James. He prepared well for putting my house on the market and hosted a number of open house events during the time of Covid. He was able to steer through some tricky things in the process which resulted in getting a good selling price and finding a buyer who really appreciated my home.
James is great! Would recommend working with him to anyone.
James was great, fast response with questions, excellent suggestions with selling the house and very easy to work with. Would buy and sell with James again if we found ourselves moving back to Milwaukee.
Mr. Drakulich was simply a delight to work with. His communication skills and attention to details made the listing and selling process enjoyable and stress free. A well deserved 5 star experience. Thank you very much James D.
James was a great realtor for me and my wife in finding our first home. He was a constant resource for us moving from out of the city, and supplied us with support at every turn. Speaking as someone for whom this process was brand new, James helped explain everything in a way that made sense, and even supplied us a list of contractors to help in home maintenance going forward. We couldn't recommend him enough!
We would have never found our perfect home if James had not encouraged us to look at it. It is located in an area we were not originally looking at, but when we saw the house, we knew it was the perfect house and neighborhood for us. We can't imagine living anywhere else. James really got to know us and what we were looking for throughout the process and ended up finding us a house we absolutely love. We also really appreciated that he always made time to show us houses we were interested in as soon as possible. We are first time home buyers and he did a great job walking us through the process.
James was amazing to work with. As first time buyers , we had lots of questions about home buying process And James guided us through each and every step. Extremely transparent, he did not hold back on sharing his point of view and highlighting potential watch-outs (and solutions ) during viewings. Thanks James!
James Drakulich listed my stepdads house for me. We needed to sell and close fast as my stepdad was moving out of state to an assisted living. James went above and beyond to make all of this happen! He gave me suggestions to make the house sell. We had an offer in two days and closed within 30 days. Things needed to happen quickly and James assisted me in getting documentation and forms necessary for POA in a flash. He stayed in constant communication with me keeping me informed as to what was needed to close on the home. James is very professional and fun to work with! I can't thank him enough for all he did to make the sale and closing speedy and seamless !
I appreciated early notice of the listing, and the quick turnaround for documents. It was helpful for you to participate in the meeting with Larry at the Knickerbocker. You were patient with my many questions re not only this unit, but re prior options I was considering.
Hello Shorewest, James was most helpful in finding us many options for what we were looking for. We appreciated his opinions and judgments on the various properties, most helpful getting his perspective good or bad. James was resourceful in suggesting diverse options in finding a property. The entire experience was seamless and never stressful. We would recommend anyone looking for a property rental or purchase to engage James.
I couldn't be more pleased with James and his drive to help us sell the house. His patience and determination made it less stressful for my wife and I. I would highly recommend James to friends and family. Thanks again James for all you did and keep up the great work.
I was connected with James through a friend who had recently purchased a Bay View home. Even while on vacation, James got in contact with me right away to get the ball rolling with my home search. As a first-time buyer, James was just what I needed. He steered me in the right direction without overpowering the search efforts and provided helpful honest feedback. From start to finish James was always engaged and made the process very smooth for me. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to buy/sell in the Milwaukee area.
James Drakulich was so great to work with. He made himself available for us and worked around our schedules. This was my first home and James really helped us to understand each step and what the documents we needed to sign really meant. I would say we got really lucky for just being randomly matched with him through the home search website we used. He was with us each step of the way and even brought us a bottle of champagne to celebrate closing day.
I've worked with James twice in the past 2.5 years -- once to purchase a condo, and once to sell. This was my first home-buying/selling experience, and James walked me through the process with just the right amount of information. James was very knowledgeable, transparent, and readily available for all of my questions. James is also super friendly and personable, and I really enjoyed working with him. The process of buying and selling my condo went smoothly and quickly. I can't think of any hiccups to report, likely because James dealt with them swiftly and calmly. I felt confident and assured with James as my realtor, and I'd definitely recommend him to others looking to buy or sell in the Milwaukee area.
James was amazing to work with for me as a first time homebuyer. He was always extremely laid back, which was very much to my taste, but asked good questions about homes I wouldn't have thought to ask. His expertise and experience was invaluable to me. He was always available at a moments notice.
James was very easy to work with. He was very responsive to all our questions and requests. We would recommend him to our neighbors and friends.
As a first time home buyer, Mr. Drakulich was a pleasure to work with throughout my home search and financing experience. He assisted my parents and brother/sister-in-law prior to my search, and came with excellent recommendation. James is best described using important P's: professional, polite, and patient. I also appreciated his expert opinion on numerous topics and effort to be available at anytime throughout the process. He remains highly recommended.
James made my home buying experience extremely easy and stress free! He was extremely accommodating and friendly every step of the way. I had just moved back to Wisconsin after 10+ years and was reacquainting myself with Milwaukee. After giving him my criteria for my home, interests and recreation his knowledge of the Milwaukee area made my decision process a breeze. His friendly network of lenders, inspectors and contractors alleviated any concerns or extra leg work for me. James went above and beyond notifying me of any new listings, and helped me find the perfect home! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a seamless home buying experience.
It's always a pleasure working with James. He is easy to work with, works hard for his clients and is always professional. I appreciate doing business with his clients and would recommend him to anyone in need of an agent.
James and I have done a few transactions together. We both began our careers in real estate about the same time and we like to collaborate. He is smart, low key and professional in his dealings both as a listing agent and buyers' agent.
James' experience made selling our home easier than we had expected. Texts of scheduled viewings, expertise in presenting our space and electronic signing for documents were just a few highlights. Anyone seeking a seamless transition to a new home needs his level of service and professionalism
I give James a five and hope to do more business with him
Very professional, kept us informed, did a great job from start to finish. Extremely satisfied.
James did a great job! He was extremely patient and very informative as he helped guide us first time home buyers through the process. He was able to work with us despite our less than accommodating schedules. He made our home buying process far from stressful. We would definitely work with James again!
James was courteous and professional, offering timely and thoughtful responses to our calls, emails, and texts, and answering our questions thoroughly. His insight was realistic and he has a good candor and sense of humor. He was a pleasure to work with, even surprising us with a gift the day of our closing. I would not hesitate to recommend James to anyone looking for an outstanding buyer's agent.
James was articulate, helpful and constantly available for all my questions. He repeatedly dismissed my confusion with appropriate facts and explanations. His patience was remarkable in moments of my high tension and senile forgetfulness. He is a valuable member of your team, I must admit. And I would recommend him to any of my friends in need of an excellent realtor. Bill Bertolas
This was my second time working with James, and just like the first time around, he did a great job. He is very professional and patient with his clients, and he genuinely wants what's best for them. He made my home buying and selling process easy to understand and complete. He is definitely someone I would recommend to others.
James went above and beyond to help make my new home purchase go through. He was able to connect me with excellent resources from financing to inspection that helped make everything so much easier! He has an easy going personality which makes him great to work with during such a stressful time. He also really knows his stuff so he can advise, advocate, and negotiate when needed. Highly recommend using James and his team.
James was a terrific help in this process of purchasing my new home. I would highly recommend him to others looking to buy or sell a home.
James goes above and beyond. This is the second property he has sold for us. Great person, hard worker, and very professional.
James was fantastic to work with. With the market being super hot in my neighborhood, he'd schedule showings for me the day the houses went on the market to ensure I'd get a fair shot at a bid. He really listened to my feedback on showings and picked up on little cues I didn't even realize I was sending. He was extremely invested in finding me the perfect house and knew exactly what I wanted. He was so in tune with my needs and wants, that when I was out of the country on business, he viewed a house and I made an offer based on the pictures and his opinion. That house was ultimately the one I purchased and I LOVE IT!!! If I ever decide to move I will MOST CERTAINLY be using him again! THANKS JAMES!!!
This was my first home purchase even though I'm no spring chicken. I honestly cannot imagine a better person to guide and protect me through the process! No kidding! Even though it took me a long time and a lot of looking to figure out what I really wanted, James never failed to be enthusiastic, prepared, on time, encouraging. He's smart and respectful and patient and genuine. I've been in my new place almost five months now and cannot imagine being any happier! Thanks so much, James!
After interviewing several agents to list my house, I chose James. James and his team were very professional and paid attention to detail and kept me informed throughout the process of selling my house and the purchase of my new condo. I was very impressed with the job they did preparing my home to go to market, Kelsey, his partner did a great job of staging my home and thier photographer did an amazing job. The photos turned out great. James has a strong knowledge of the real estate business which helped me navigate a few situations that I was unprepared for and as I reflect back on it, his suggestions were spot on. I liked the fact that he listened to me and did not pressure me during the the sale of my house or the buying of my new condo. I'd recommend James to my family and friends for any of their real estate needs.
James was so great to work with! As a first time home buyer, a realtor that is knowledgeable and honest was exactly what I needed. I very much appreciate your professionalism, quick responses and hard work in helping me find my new home.
He was great and was easy to get in touch with. He was personable and realistic as well.
5 stars James provided Jeff and I excellent support and professional guidance. He was always quick to respond to our questions.
My experience with shore west and James was very positive. James did a great job of keeping my interests in mind during the process. He was very helpful and patient which is great to have when you are a first time buyer!
Moving back from out of state was a very easy transition with James. He was able to understand they type of neighborhood I was looking for and pinpointed my home very quickly. He was knowledgeable of the entire Milwaukee area and was able to give me the pros and cons of each area of Milwaukee I asked him about. One thing that stood out was his relationships with other realtors we dealt with. Having a realtor with respect in the industry was a huge bonus.
James was excellent to work with. Extremely knowledgable about every aspect of home buying. As a first time homebuyer, it was great to have him on my side to help me know what to look for. James laid out every step clearly and was quick to answer any questions that arose. He made the process from initial search to closing on my first home a breeze. I will recommend James to all my family and friends.
We are so thankful for James and the guidance he provided while we searched for our first home. He was honest and straightforward and provided us with the help we needed to make sure we were meeting the deadlines necessary. We would recommend James to anyone!
James always answered my calls and emails no matter what day or time. He was always there to listen. He had great ideas to help sell my house for a great price and in a short period of time.
James was an expectional realtor. I used him for both the purchase and sale of my most recent home. He was always prompt with his responses and extremely patient with all of my questions. His honest opinions during the process were invaluable. I would recommend him to everyone who is looking to purchase or sell their home. If I return to the Milwaukee area, he will definitely be representing me as my agent again.
James was excellent to work with. He was patient with me as I found the right 1st home. He is knowledgeable and provides the perfect amount of direction. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I would recommend him to any of my family and friends, and I would feel confident that they would be in good hands. Thank you James!!!
Al, my son, Gabe and I can't thank you enough for all the hard work, dedication, patience, and the time you spent in our search for the just-right condo for Gabo -so quickly & efficiently. As we are from Chicago, you made it very easy for us to purchase a unit at Point on the River by your attention to detail in gauging us properly & quickly on Gabo's & our wants, your immediate response to our questions via e-mail, text or phone, your candor when giving us valuable advise, your knowledge & expertise of the market & Milwaukee, and of course, your winning smile. We were very lucky to have you as a Realtor.
My husband and I have worked with several realtors in the past, but we had the best experience with James. He is extremely knowledgeable, and he quickly understood what we were looking for and helped tailor and focus our search. He is honest, which we particularly appreciated, and he communicates very promptly and effectively. We were able to find our place within two weeks of working with James, and we can't recommend him highly enough.
I feel I was fortunate in having James as my realtor. His bright, friendly manner, his knowledge of his profession, and his ability to communicate to me exactly what I was to expect and to do was profoundly reassuring to me. He was easy to reach, responded immediately to my calls and my needs, and was accessible to meet for unforeseen questions and clarifications. I would be happy and honored to recommend him to anyone who is in need of a highly competent realtor.
It was great working with James. This was my first home-buying experience, and he provided just the right amount of information to help me understand the process.
I know I may not be the easiest client to satisfy, but James' patience and persistence helped find my perfect property and I couldnt be happier with him!
It was my pleasure to work with you
James never left me wondering when he was going to respond - it was always immediate. If he couldn't answer a question, he had a contact to get an answer from.
James has been nothing but the best. He has endured 2 long years with us on this journey of ours in finding the perfect home. We definitely had James running around all those weekends and last minute requests to show us homes whether in Menomonee Falls or somewhere in the Waukesha County area. James has been nothing but patient, very informative and in all, the best realtor anyone could ever ask for. We're so happy that in these past two years, James has been a part of it; not just for that time period but he will be a part of this chapter in our lives forever. We would definitely recommend James to everyone and anyone as he is the type of realtor that everyone should have. Thank you so much once again James!
My wife and I were getting ready to purchase our first house when a friend referred us to James Drakulich. James was very easy to talk to and answered all of our questions regarding our first home purchase (and believe me, we had a lot of them!). He walked us through the buying process and explained anything that we needed further clarification on. He was very patient with us and really listened to our needs and wants regarding our first house. When we found the house that we knew we wanted to make our next home, James really went to bat for us and guided us through the negotiation process. I am extremely happy to say that we got the house of our dreams and James was the agent who helped make that happen for us. I would definitely recommend James Drakulich to all my friends and family as well as anyone who is looking for a friendly, patient, and professional agent to help them find their next home. Thanks James!
I was so pleased with the quick and painless sale of my home thanks to James! I had so many questions about what needed to be done to get the house ready to list. He was very knowledgeable and helped me focus on the things that would attract buyers. He went the extra mile for me and it paid off. My house sold in 10 days and I was absolutely thrilled!
James was truly amazing to work with. His expertise, knowledge, and insight were really helpful as a first time home buyer with many questions and no clue about what to expect. James remains calm and professional even when situations arise (and they do!). I highly recommend James for anyone who wants a realtor who is trustworthy, personable, and knows his stuff!
A colleague at work recommended that I consider working with James for my condo sale and new home purchase. After my initial meeting with James I felt fairly confident that he would be my best choice. He even had recent experience selling a downtown condo near mine as well as several home sales in the Bay View area, where I was looking to purchase. From then on I felt very comfortable discussing anything with James, from housing styles, to neighbor issues, to budget concerns, to a surgery I had to go through, etc. Another big concern for me was establishing the right price and getting my condo sold. I watched one of my neighbor's condo sit on the market for a full year. James priced mine right and it sold in 9 days!!!!! I also owe thanks to his colleague Kelsey who helped James stage the condo for photos and showings. They gentled instructed me one which rooms needed more clean-up where furniture may be better located, and how much needed to be put into storage to provide a more spacious look. James has also provided great recommendations for a home inspector, closing / moving day coordination, and assistance finding a lender for my buyer. He has also provided constant communication throughout the process including a scheduling app for showings that really worked great, the website that got lots of hits , and has been a conduit for getting messages to the buyer of my condo as well as the homeowner of the home I'm moving to. So yes, I'd highly recommend working with James for your realty needs.
James is exceptional! He sold my house in 8 days. Would highly recommend!
James was there for us at every step in searching for a condominium and selling our bungalow in the Bay View neighborhood. He was thorough in explaining the steps required in the process of buying and selling a home. He made the extra effort in helping us find a new residence and make arrangements to visit it, as well as assisting us in preparing our house for sale. We appreciated his experience in the real estate field, commitment to customer service, and positive attitude throughout the process of buying and selling a property.
James is by far the most patient person we know! We know we've driven him crazy with all the houses we've had interest in but not once did he ever show signs of not wanting to help. James continues to help us in finding our first home. We wouldn't exchange him for anyone else.
Everything seemed to go smoothly James Drakulich was responsive and tried hard to find me the right house. I would have no problem recommending him.
James is a fantastic realtor. He guided me through the selling process every step of the way. His knowledge of the market and pricing is impressive. I wouldnt hesitate to work with James again. I recommend him highly.
