Jim Lorch was the most professional businessman each step of the way. He has the utmost respect and care for people that stems from his faith in the Lord! Because of this he not only enjoys selling real estate but he enjoys simply serving people even more. He has a true servant’s heart. He was very knowledgeable about every aspect of the market and of the general functions of a home. When unique circumstances and hurdles arise (as they will with every home because each one is different), Jim always knows how to brainstorm and he goes the extra mile to troubleshoot with his clients, keeping them as calm and comfortable as possible as they make big financial decisions. Attention to detail is also one of his greatest strengths which is so incredibly helpful in the business of real estate. Once he uses that attention to detail to bring all of your options to the table, he always allows his client to be in control and never does anything without their permission which shows his high integrity. And lastly, his communication is superb. There will never be a situation where standards of communication change because he becomes too busy or because a client does something that he doesn’t agree with. He will lovingly try to steer you in the best direction possible given his knowledge base but he never forces a deal or pressures his clients. As his motto goes, he really does love to serve with a servant’s heart! Go with Jim Lorch and you won’t be disappointed!

We’ve recently had the great pleasure of working with Mr. James Lorch again. He is one of the brightest, knowledgeable & honest realtors we have ever dealt with. Listens to his customers to make sure everyone is happy. I can honestly say his work ethic excels his reputation as an amazing realtor at Coldwell Banker.
Thank you so much Mr. Lorch for your great service. We are looking forward to working together again in the near future!

Adriana C.

Working with Jim was a pleasure and we highly recommend him! Tight from the beginning, it felt like Jim clearly had our best interest at heart and that was true throughout the whole process. He graciously answered our many questions as first time home buyers and wisely navigated us through the process. He was always on time and communicated us very clearly.

Keaton W.

So thankful for James Lorch’s service in helping us find our home! He is detailed, caring, and communicative. We felt in the loop from the beginning of the process to the end, and he had the experience to answer any of our questions along the way, as well as provide helpful insight. It was a great experience working with him and we would recommended him to anyone searching for a home. Thank you!!

Jenna A.

Jim was AWESOME! We knew we made the right choice within seconds of our first meeting! Jim was well organized, knowledgeable and beyond professional.
As most of us do, we have very busy lives and we were able to trust Jim to lead the sale of our home. Communication was on point! This guy knows his stuff! Thank you!!

Ora W.

Jim was recommended to me with the promise of good service and he really did deliver. From the start, he went into the sale with a mindset of service and was with us every step of the way. He did an excellent job of talking us through coming up with accurate pricing on a house that we were convinced would be hard to sell. He was constantly in communication through the bid process and and would get back with answers almost immediately. I can’t say enough good about him! If you’re looking to buy or sell, Jim is your guy!

Cameron M.

Jim is very professional, does his research and is great to work with.  He kept in contact with us and walked us through the entire process!  We will use him again if/when the need arises and would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell!  Thank you again for your hard work Jim!!!

Kandi P.

James was a tremendous help in selling our vacant land. We had no idea what to price it at or how to go about selling it, and he laid everything out for us. He had comparisons and we talked about how our land compared in price points to others. He walked us through every step and we were able to sell our land quickly! We are so grateful to him and his expertise and highly recommend him.

Sydney D.

Jim came highly recommended by several friends when I let it be known that my elderly father wanted to sell his house and move to Florida. From the first meeting through the closing Jim walked Dad through every step as he clearly explained the process of the sale, made recommendations that enabled him to take advantage of the market, and answered all of Dad’s questions. I appreciated the time he took to make sure that Dad understood and was comfortable with every decision. Without question I would recommend Jim to anyone who is in the market to either buy or sell
a home.

Paula D.

James was very professional during the entire process of selling the condo. He is full of integrity and is very thorough in every step, patiently waiting and following up on any issues that came. His communication with the buyers agent, title company, and client is always met with an immediate and gracious response. I highly recommend him as an agent!

Tracey G.

Jim was one of three realtors that we contacted to help sell the house my parents had built and lived in for 59 years. He was recommended by my Dad’s brother after their house sold within days of listing and they were most comfortable with him. Jim met frequently with my parents and me and patiently explained the process and expectations for selling the house. He was engaged in every step of the process. Jim set things up so I was notified of every showing and offered recommendations concerning the three offers received after a couple dozen showings. He gave references for estate sale liquidators. He helped ensure we had everything lined up for an efficient closing and attended the closing meeting with us. My parents were pleased to do business with him.

Barb S.

We were so grateful for Jim. We were moving from Texas to Michigan and therefore could not be physically present to look at any houses. He would go to each house and set up a zoom conference so we could see as much as possible. He was great at trying to give us a real picture of what it was like and gave great attention to detail. He never made us feel rushed or a burden. He was very accommodating. He also gave great recommendations to help our offer be accepted (quite a challenge in this market!). He walked us through every step of the process several times to ensure we knew exactly what was going on and how to proceed. We love our home and the offer we made on it. We can’t say enough great things about Jim!

Missy F.

Jim did an incredible job for us. He was always available for questions, showings, or whatever we needed. He made the process easy to understand kept a professional and positive attitude throughout the process. In a tough housing market he gave us creative ideas to make our offers stand out. We are so thankful we found him as our realtor.

Steven F.

Jim was an exceptional realtor from start to finish! As a first time home buyer, he was able to teach me everything I needed to know and more about the real estate industry. With Jim’s guidance we formulated a competitive offer and got accepted on the very first house we put a bid on- and that’s saying a lot in this fast paced market! He is professional, knowledgeable, and above all else a man of God who does right by all his clients. I would recommend Jim to anyone and everyone!

Stephen B.

James was extremely knowledgeable about the market and gave us realistic direction and advice. Communication was excellent and small issues we ran into were addressed and dealt with quickly. James is passionate about his job, but even more, he is concerned with helping others and made sure our desires were met and the experience was as smooth and pleasant as can be.

Jarryd B.

Jim Lorch made our house selling experience a fun one. He kept us so well informed that we didn’t need to worry or wonder. He also got us over 35 showings in two days resulting in 8 offers. If you don’t know what to do just listen to his advice and sit back.

Marie B.

I can’t tell you enough how great Jim has been. I first met Jim while housing hunting in 2019. He served my husband and I well and we bought a 3-bedroom house in Lapeer. Fast forward to 2022 when we were ready to sell, and Jim was right there ready to serve us again. He made sure to give us all the tips and tricks to selling, how to be fair in pricing and kept us updated on literally every aspect of the process. I almost never went a day without hearing from him and he always answered my calls or text within a timely manner. You can’t go wrong having Jim as your realtor regardless of if you’re buying or selling. It was truly a pleasure working with Jim and when the time comes to buy again, I’ve got him on speed dial.

Kayla D.

From the time that we contacted Jim about representing us in the sale of this property, he did an outstanding job. Our sale was in support of parents who reached a point in life where the agreed that downsizing is the correct thing to do. He met with them and key support players in the family. He offered suggestions for how to prepare for the sale, what the correct price point should be, what to expect. His supportive approach put my parents at ease. His methodology proved correct. We were on the market for three days and got 5 offers all over asking. His followup and communication are excellent. He helped provide information to make decisions of all types but did not apply pressure. Highly recommend Jim.

Mike S.

Jim came recommended to me when I was looking to purchase a home in the Lapeer area and I am so thankful. Jim was so patient and accommodating through the entire process and did all he could to make it quick and easy. If you are looking to buy or sell, do yourself a favor and give Jim Lorch a call.

Jeff R.

Where to begin? We met Jim through a church connection a few years back. We had moved before and used another realtor for those “buy/sell” transactions. One thing we told Jim from the get go was that a personal touch makes a huge difference for us. If we wanted to look at homes, we worked with Jim. If we had questions, we talked to Jim. That’s huge. Our trust is in our realtor and while he has a team working with him, Jim is our “person.” Jim would go above and beyond to make sure we were happy with our move. He made sure that he was available any time he could be for us. He understood our schedules and worked with us. He even fought to get our offers accepted on each home. He would spend as much time as needed to make sure we were happy. Jim’s customer service is above and beyond. He created a very trustworthy, Christ centered relationship. Which was also important to us. Even when we didn’t feel comfortable with something, he would help us understand our decisions and respect each decision we made. By far, one of the most dedicated, knowledgeable, passionate, professional and trustworthy realtor in the industry.

James B.

First of all Jim was highly recommended by someone I have a lot of respect for. So I followed through and so glad I did. Jim provided comparable homes and guided me through the process of pricing my home right. Followed by hiring a professional photographer who used a drone which produced very good quality pictures. Suddenly the property is online appearing on a great many websites and the showings quickly started. I was so pleased with the huge interest in the property which produced many offers and resulted in selling the property for asking price in less than 2 weeks. I was very impressed with how Jim consistently communicated with me. I was never in the dark on anything. Thank you Jim for a job well done.

John M.

Jim is a top notch professional. This is the third time I have worked with him and as usual the process was seamless and easy. I highly recommend Jim to anyone that is looking for their new home. Thank you again Jim until next time I’m sure there will be.

Joe F.

Jim was very informative and attentive throughout the process of selling my home. I am a first time seller of our home of 47 years and he walked me through the process and made me feel very comfortable. He is very compassionate and caring and I am glad he was by my side throughout the process.

Linda M.

Jim provided expert guidance. He shared his insights into pricing and prepping the house and yard for the sale. He used his contacts to be sure we had lots of potential buyers. He kept things moving by setting target dates with us; and, helping us to meet them. We felt very comfortable through the whole process. It was fun working with Jim!

Cindy B.

Jim far exceeded my expectations. He always kept me informed, explained all steps in the process, listened to my concerns and many times had excellent solutions to any problems that had to be handled. I felt that my needs were of the utmost importance to Jim. It really was a privilege working with him.

Betty T.

What can I say about Jim Lorch other than…INCREDIBLE! And I don’t just say that because we have been friends for 17 years. Throughout the entire adventure of finding a house, he never stopped actively working and searching on my behalf. Mind you, my search took a whole ten months!! Yikes! I may have caused him a few gray hairs but he never complained. In fact, he counts it as a joy and privilege to serve his community. From making suggestions of which inspections to have done, to how well a home seems to be built, and even as particular as breaking down the cost of fixing things up or paying certain bills, Jim Lorch doesn’t miss any details. He dreams with you and helps you to reach your goal of having a wonderful home that you’re proud of. On top of that, you will never feel out of the loop because he consistently gives updates and asks you how you’re feeling about all of the diverse aspects of home-buying. As a first-time homebuyer, I was ecstatic to have Jim Lorch in the role of my realtor!

Mitchell B.

Mr. Lorch was consistently timely and helpfully during the entire selling process. We were always informed.

Lynn L.


When my wife and I were preparing to list our house, a couple of our friends and family members recommended Jim Lorch–and I am so glad they did! When you first meet Jim, it becomes very apparent that he has a servant’s heart. He is kind, knowledgeable, and he clearly cares deeply about his clients. Jim is extremely professional and he quickly alleviated any concerns or questions we had about the process (this was our first time ever selling a home!). Throughout the process, Jim was incredibly intentional about making sure we felt heard and that we understood what steps were being taken. We truly felt like we were in a partnership and we always felt like a priority. Jim was so prompt on responding to emails, texts, and calls, and he always kept us continually informed about the progress being made. Jim also helped our family and prospective buyers feel safe. That may sound a little strange, but in the wake of 2020 and a global pandemic, Jim went to great lengths to make sure that we had a safe and healthy home during showings by providing masks and instructions for anyone who would be walking through our house. As we look back on the process of listing and selling our home, I don’t believe things could have gone any smoother! During the transition it was such a blessing to fully focus on packing, moving, and future planning—because we had full confidence and trust in Jim. We are ecstatic with the way Jim provided guidance, support, and even genuine friendship along the journey—we HIGHLY recommend Jim Lorch and will be personally referring him to everyone we meet who is looking to purchase or sell a home!

Keegan C.

We had an excellent selling experience with Jim. He is very professional and brings a personal touch to the relationship. His knowledge & leadership was of great value and he fully involved us in the decision-making process. We felt like we were a part of a team. Jim is a very detailed person and kept us informed throughout the entire process. He was always available if we had any questions. The results speak for themselves. We sold the house well over the price and much quicker than we were expecting. We would highly recommend Jim Lorch.

Jeff S.

I’m very happy to recommend Jim Lorch and the excellent services he provided in the sale of a large land property in MI, owned by three parties. I felt very comfortable and confident in how he understood the complex situation. Jim immediately initiated all the required documentation and paperwork required, also advertising, etc. He always kept the Zoom lines of communication open between all parties involved during this time of Covid 19. He listened well, stayed focused and calm and navigated us in the right direction throughout this at times cumbersome process. Inert a short time he presented us with potential buyers and agreeable results! Jim’s pleasant attitude and professional knowledge was very encouraging. He is really a fine professional, excellent negotiator, dependable, honest and trustworthy and very effective! I highly recommend Jim and the realtor services he provided to us.

Isolde K.

From the start of the process to sell the house, you could tell Jim was a person you could trust. If he did not have the answer to a question, he said he would find out, he researched it and provided a prompt response. Jim sat with us and we discussed the whole process. He walked through our home and we discussed a solid asking price. You couldn’t have asked for a better result. The listing went active very quickly. On day one we had 8 showings, Day 2 we had 9 showings and 5 quality offers. We cancelled the rest of the showings and shortly had a buyer and we closed on the house. Our neighbors were very impressed with the amount of showings we had. Jim gave us his cards to hand out because our neighbors were asking about him. Jim has a great work ethic and a very good rapport with people. He went above and beyond in helping us.

Don L.

Jim helped with every aspect of selling my home. Any questions I inquired he was there to answer… his dedication to help serve me shows a great professionalism in the realtor industry. A caring and thoughtful person. He respected my wishes and was thoughtful and kind. God bless.

Pam C.

Jim is an excellent realtor. He went above and beyond helping us sell our properties. We had multiple properties to sell and Jim organized and structured the listings with options to purchase them together or separately. The listings were very informative and gave buyers an immediate overview of the property with pictures taken by a drone showing the property boundaries and the features of the land. We also had several owners involved with these properties, which required extra coordination between the sellers and the buyers when the properties sold. Jim was very responsive to questions that were asked by both the sellers and the buyers and was very meticulous throughout the selling process. I recommend him to anyone that needs the services of a real estate agent. The next time I am in the market to purchase or sell property, Jim will be my go-to real estate agent.

Harry M.

Jim did a fantastic job of managing the entire selling process from the initial listing and right through to the final closing. Our situation was a little more complicated since there were three sellers, with one seller being out of state. Jim handled the complication seamlessly, working with all of us, answering questions, making suggestions, and responding to our requests. Thanks for everything you did to make it happen!

Ron M.

Jim was so helpful in the process of selling our house that we built and lived in for over 30 years. He was encouraging and very trustworthy. Jim answered all our questions that we texted in a timely fashion. Thanks so much a Jim. God bless you.

Steve P.

Jim Lorch has been the greatest. He helped us sell our home and then buy a condominium. You cannot find a realtor that is more helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. He goes out of his way to do anything you need and offers assistance and identifies roadblocks and things you have not thought about. This makes it easy to accomplish a smooth sale and purchase without surprises. I have dealt with realtors before but Jim is much superior and we recommend him for anyone in need of a realtor. We are glad we chose Jim to help us with our transactions.

Len W.

Jim is an A+ realtor. He helped us through each and every step in the sale and purchase of our homes. If you are looking for a realtor that will truly care about your needs and wishes, Jim is your man. Look no further! Call Jim today!

Lori V.

Jim was very helpful in our situation, which was a bit unique. We were selling two homes, one of which was in a trust, to buy a new multi-generation home. The situation had added complexity compared to a normal buy / sell, but Jim walked us through it, keeping us informed so we could make good decisions. We ended up with a great house and our experience to get there was top notch. I recommend Jim to anyone.

Stan V.

We appreciated Jim’s assistance in selling our home. His professionalism, friendliness, and abilities to provide support in every instance was extremely helpful. We are happy that our friends at church recommended and that we chose Jim as our realtor. Jim came out to the house after we called and explained the process to us, which was a lot different than the experience we had with another realtor last summer when we first decided to try to sell our home. He told us what to expect and the process went exactly as he stated. He knew that we had a bad experience but helped us to be comfortable in listing the house. It took less than a week for the house to sell. Even when the prospective buyer was a veteran and wanted to purchase using a VA loan, he told us what to expect. It was just as predicted which made the sale more demanding and a lot of additional work. Then along came the Coronavirus which caused more challenges. The closing in a parking lot was surely not normal. Of course, he knew all the other challenges along the way. We were fortunate to have Jim pave the way and everything turned out okay. We are grateful for everything Jim did for us. We don’t know what we would have done without him. We would gladly recommend Jim’s services to anyone who is looking for a realtor.

Len W.

From beginning to end, Jim kept us in the loop and took care of hiccups that inevitably come up. We never felt stressed thanks to Jim.

Matt P.

From our first meeting with Jim to list our home his knowledge on the prep work, to the listing photos, to the for sale sign in our yard was most helpful. Jim was attentive to us, answering all our questions along the way and keeping us apprised of what was happening behind the scene. I would not hesitate to recommend his services.

Karen P.

I’m so appreciative of the quick response to any questions or comments along the way, and Jim stuck with us right through our closing! I actually enjoyed our closing, as the seller. Never thought I’d say that! Jim is kind, patient and prayerful and i would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone in the market to buy or sell their home.

Nancy W.

We had been working with a different realtor. After a year of working with her and still not being in a house, we decided to part ways. I put a post up on Facebook asking for recommendations, and Jim reached out within an hour. We decided to go with him. He spoke with us and made a list of houses to check out. By the end of that week we had a full day of houses planned out. We looked at 6 houses and found one we loved. We talked with Jim about the offer we wanted to do and he did everything we asked. By the end of the next week, our offer had been accepted and we started our process of buying a house. I truly cannot speak highly enough of him. He stayed in constant communication. He worked long, late hours for us. He went above and beyond to give us the best service. We are so grateful we went with him! I would highly recommend him!

Anthony H.

We contacted Jim about listing our home on 78 acres which included a ranch home, pole barn, and many other farm related out buildings. We were looking to downsize and move closer to the Lapeer area. Jim contacted us back immediately and made visits to our farm many times with comps, ideas, and suggestions on selling our home. We did list our home with Jim and Coldwell Banker. He is very thorough and paid a lot of attention to detail. Quick to answer our calls and questions. He walked the property, all 78 acres to better be able to list it and answer questions of any potential buyers. Our home was sold quickly and smoothly. He was with us every step of the way thru the closing. We in turn bought a home, which he took us through and we are happy with our new home which we purchased thru Jim. Very happy with Jim’s service to us.

Sandi H.

Jim was outstanding to work with. I live in NYS and had a property that had to be sold. He took care of everything for me, and sold it in one day! I was literally speechless when he called me to say he had a cash offer. He explained everything clearly to me, answered all my questions in a very timely manner, and was a true gentleman throughout the entire process. Although I will never need to sell anything again in Michigan, I hope if you need to purchase or sell, you will run (and not walk) to Jim’s office. And Jim, thank you again for everything.

Elizabeth E.

Want a reliable and eager representative? Want a diligent representative who has a great response time? Then Jim is the representative for you! Exceptional customer service to his customers as he walks his clients through their home buying adventures. He was a joy to work with and did a great job helping us every step of the way through purchasing and selling a home! Very thankful for his expertise during our home buying experience!

Olivia S.

Very knowledgeable and kept us in the loop as to how things were moving along.

Mark D.

If you’re looking for a professional real estate agent, you will want to hire Jim. I have never met a real estate agent more dedicated to his clients. Jim and his client hired my business Coughlin Estate Sales to manage the cleanout and liquidation of his client’s estate. He was very active in the process, which was very helpful for his client. Jim is extremely easy to work with and an awesome agent for his clients. After we finished cleaning out the property, Jim got the home up on the market and sold very quickly. You won’t be disappointed if you hire Jim as your agent. I hope to get another opportunity to work with him again.

Jusin C.

I think James’ communication and professional skills were exceptional. He worked quickly and with a lot of attention to detail. As a first-time seller I felt very comfortable with his help and trusted his decisions.

Ronald E.

Words cannot describe how amazing Jim was during our home buying process. He always kept us in the loop and touched base with us which I loved because it felt like months between the inspection and closing (even though it was only a couple of weeks). Jim is very quick to respond at all hours of the day and was always ready to go show us homes.

Kayla D.

Jim is very knowledgeable about the whole process of home buying and selling he has sold 2 houses for me and we just bought one. The transition was smooth and painless. His recommendations really helped us in the process as well as his patience. Always answered any questions we had and responded to us right away. I highly recommend Jim. I’ve been working with him for almost two years now and couldn’t have chosen a better realtor than Jim.

Joe F.

Jim was amazing to work with! My husband and I worked with Jim for almost a year on and off until we found the right home for us. Jim was very patient with us and wasn’t happy until we were happy. Jim is very professional and always treated us as if we were his only clients. As first-time homebuyers, he was very knowledgeable and answered any questions we had, and we had a lot! Jim was always ready to show us a house whenever it was convenient for us! All around great realtor and I would definitely recommend him to anyone I know who is looking to buy or sell.

Diana F.

James was so wonderful to work with. He was very accommodating to our busy schedules. His attention to detail was second to none. I would work with him again.

Alissa H.

We are very happy with our new home that James worked with us to purchase! His dedication to service really showed as he helped us find the home that we needed.

Jeremy H.

Mr. Lorch was an exceptional realtor who worked hard to get us into our new home! He goes above and beyond what is asked of him. Thank you for helping us find our new home!!

Michaela D.

Jim was great to work with. His attention to detail and responsiveness was greatly appreciated! We will certainly be turning to him again as we take on additional projects. If you are looking for someone to help with your realtor needs, we would strongly recommend Jim Lorch.

Adriana C.

Jim helped sell my house in downtown Lapeer. Everything went well.

Fred H.

Jim, was always ready to show us whatever house we wanted to see at any time of day or night. He listed our house and the third showing it sold. It was very fast. Jim is very friendly and eager to please you.

Deborah S.

Great attention to my needs and detail.

Frank S.

James help our mutual client every step of the way. He was prompt to get back with her and I at all hours of the night.

Derrick H.

James was very helpful in completing the purchase of our investment property. He went out of his way to make sure everything was done right. Very nice and honest person. Thanks.

Ken K.
