Client Testimonials

"JP sold my house in less than two weeks after I had tried it on my own for a month. He not only did this but he also sold it for more than I ever thought I would. He made very helpful suggestions on staging and provided his wealth of real estate information to my disposal. I would highly recommend him to anyone listing or buying a home! I found his knowledge and guidance to be an invaluable benefit to have had."

Lori Hasselbring

"I wanted to take a minute to say thank you. Back in May you came and spent some time with us in our home in Leroy and provided some valuable information about us putting our house on the market. You were very insightful regarding staging our home and took a great deal of time with us to talk about our options. My husband and I were both very impressed at how honest you were. We didn't have much equity and more than likely would of had to bring lots of money to the closing table. Matter of fact you shared with us, "it's not that I don't want your business, but you are selling your home at the peak time, maybe you should try it for a few weeks on your own."  We were blown away that a realtor would suggest that to us. But we knew at that minute that you had our best interest in mind. We did what you said but had every intention to using your agency if the home didn't sell on its own in a few weeks. Well, we sold in just 36 hours!!!!!! Thank you for caring about our situation, for your honestly and for your expertise. Although we did not end up needing to use your services, you helped us more than you know. I have been telling everyone about you since then. Blessings to you and your business!!!!!"


"J.P. is excellent at what he does because he doesn't just help you buy or sell. After our first conversation with him he knew exactly what we want and needed. He lead us through the sell of our home and the purchase of a new home with ease. J.P. has a vast amount of wonderful resources enabling us to be prepared for anything. We are still using those resources today. There wasn't an issue he couldn't resolve and he some how made us feel like we were his primary focus. If possible, I would never buy or sell a home without J.P. He's Amazing!!!"

Cheerie Crook

"My husband and I spent lots of time and energy finding the perfect agent to help us with our home sale and eventual purchase.  J P was referred to us by our friends who had used him in the past and I will say that he not only lived up to their rave reviews but surpassed them!  JP was prompt, courteous, honest and sincerely cared about us and our needs.  There is no need to look further!  We were impressed from list to sell to purchase to closing!"

"JP gets it done! We had already purchased a home and needed to sell our current home fast-- JP had it sold for a great price in less than 2 weeks. We will always use JP for all of our real estate needs!"

Allison Kushner

"We had incredibly difficult buyers of our home and JP represented us with poise. He had patience for our endless questions and concerns. He even scheduled an appointment for us to look at our dream home before we asked. He listened to our needs in a home and made sure we didn't settle for something that didn't meet our needs."

Katy Edge

"Talk about a man with patience! My wife and I have got to be perhaps some of JP's most difficult clients he has ever had. We were on a mission to find the diamond in the rough and JP and team never gave up. They plowed on and kept a cool attitude and remained patient with us as we looked to buy our dream home. Once we bought our dream home JP and team listed our old home at the time andsold it in 3 weeks! Very happy with our experience, highly recommend him to anybody in need of a realtor who is willing to go the extra miles to make a deal happen. There was nothing like signing our paperwork at Gordman's late in the evening on a Friday night! Thanks so much JP, wishing you continued success and prosperity! "


"He is an honest realtor that I have ever seen in Bloomingtin /Normal and also supports local community very well."

Venkateswara Mandava

"I worked with J.P. prior to him becoming a Real Estate Broker/Agent at RE/MAX Choice. J.P. has always been someone who listens to what people are looking for, understands what's most important, knows how to make buying a home a great experience vs just a bunch of papers you have to sign! 

J.P. helps you through the whole process of buying a home, regardless of if it's your first home or just another property in your portfolio. His service is tailored to your needs and it will seem like you're his only client, his top priority and you'll soon be thinking of him as your best friend not your Real Estate Agent. 

If you're buying or selling a home in the Bloomington/Normal area, you would be crazy not to call J.P. Finley, you'll not be disappointed and you'll have a new best friend!

Mike Deberg

"J.P. Finley has been the marked difference in our neighborhood, improving sales, working with difficult clients, opening doors that were seemingly closed before he ventured those prospects, and more. I would definitely recommend him."

Kerrie Parker

"I had a less than perfect home that I needed to sell. Also, I was an absentee owner 70 miles away. I never once worried about the property and J P never suggested anything rash. Instead he found me a qualified buyer and we got the deal done!"

Brad Passalaqua

"J P Finley is absolutely awesome in every way. I was referred to him by one of my close friends who JP had assisted in buying and selling their three other homes. I could JP to be extremely knowledgable, caring, professional, and very honest.  He and his team made the sale of my home simple and pain free. They even coordinated minor and major repairs and updates for me and managed the home while I was not living there. They were an absolute godsend. 
During the listing period, he and his team kept in constant contact with me and provided feedback after every showing if there was some. My home was professionally presented at all times on various websites and when the time came to negotiate. JP did a marvelous job and made the process very easy and didn't require much from me.  Thank you so much for your help and counsel, I know that I couldn't have done it alone and appreciate all you do. I will too refer you to all of my friends and family with whom needs to buy or sell. I am thankful my friend did that for me and would love to have my friends receive the same level of service, care and results that I experienced."


"JP knows the central IL landscape extremely well. His knowledge, expertise and attentiveness helped me find the perfect house and neighborhood! The most endearing quality about JP is that his service doesn't stop after the sale. He was always available during and after the sale to answer questions and keep me informed. I would highly recommend JP and his team!!!"

Cara Broy

"Your website was the ONLY resource we found that could meet our needs as we searched for a home. The polygon search tool allowed us to narrow our hunt to the most relevant neighborhoods, and your "Communities" content was the only truly honest material we could find. Thank you SO much."


"We can't thank you enough for all your hard work. Our new home is everything we hoped it would be, and the price you negotiated was great! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to friends and family, and will definitely use your services for our next real estate transaction."

Joe and Jackie

"JP is an over, under, around or through any obstacle kind of guy! I met him several years ago while shopping for a home to purchase for my parents to live in. We had a lower budget and we looked and looked and looked before we found the perfect home in the perfect price range. The purchase probably was not a high commission paying one but he gave me 150% and kept looking for the right one! We continue stay in touch and I am blessed to call him "friend"."

Lynn WIlls

"JP helped us find and buy a new home. He is knowledgable and was extremely helpful with all aspects, from financing to giving me names and numbers for good painters, electricians, plumbers etc. to do remodeling work after we bought the house. I could not have been more pleased with his service. He is not the least bit high pressure or pushy but gives you accurate facts and responds quickly to your needs. I would not ever hesitate to do future business or to recommend him to my fussiest friend. JP is top drawer in my book!"
