What Our Clients Say

Jim was very forthcoming in describing his personal and professional experience with Rochester and the surrounding area. He was attentive to our specific needs, a great communicator, and always had our best interests at heart. He really helped to set us at ease when moving into a new city.

Katherine & Jacob

Jim and Cathy where great to work with buying my first home. As a first time home buyer I was nervous and had a lot of questions, Jim and Cathy answered these questions in a timely manner day or night. They made the process easy and straight forward which kept the stress of buying a house to a minimum.


Jim is great to work with. He really listens and helps make the process as easy as possible. I was kept informed of activity and feedback from all showings which really helped me to know what people liked and didn’t like about my property. His knowledge and experience really helped me through my first time as a seller.

Tom & Gay

“Jim and Cathy worked very hard to help me find the perfect home. They both displayed the patience necessary, to show me one house after another, with no pressure to pull the trigger until I found it!”


Jim has shown us a few houses in the past so this time we chose him to sell one for us. He was the one we mainly kept in contact with and we appreciated his guidance and learned much from him. Cathy often sent us the paperwork, I believe did some showings, and we met her at one of the meetings. Very patient, kind, knowledgeable person.

John & Kathy

Jim and Cathy were my realtors and helped me find my home very fast. The home was in foreclosure which added a lot of extra steps and delays, but they were so responsive and helpful to ensure I closed in a timely manner. I would highly recommend them, great people!


“We contacted Jim about a house we were interested in looking at and he was already showing that house to us the next day. He was quick to email us other properties that had what we wanted right away when they came on the market. For the house we ended up buying, it came on the market on Thursday, we saw it on Friday, put an offer on Friday night, and they took our offer Sunday. Jim understood the negotiating that we needed to do to sway them to take our offer over the others. We just moved in and we love our place.”

Benjamin & Jillian

Jim was very helpful with the whole house buying process. Between having to drive from Rochester to look at multiple houses until we found the perfect one, and answering every question we had about buying a house, Jim was all around great to work with! Highly recommend him to anyone!


“Cathy and Jim Armstrong did an amazing job of helping me get into the house that I found and wanted! I would recommend them to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home!”

26 Oak Ln, Pine Island


“I could not be more pleased with my experience from start to finish. Jim was able to help me get everything I needed to finance and close a unique property, without his expertise – that would not have happened. I closed on time as well. I found Jim to be very responsive and go above and beyond in every aspect, I had not experienced this level of service with any other real estate professional I have worked with in the past. I would highly recommend Jim and his team.” Kimberly


“I called Jim he was out the same day listed my house the next day, with a price that sold quickly. My house needed a realtor to list it right to get the right people in, Jim did that, the right people came in, and it sold quickly with 3 offers coming in. I got the price I wanted, a quick closing and everything I wanted out of the sale. The experience was quick, clean and effortless. We had spoke with another agency in town very popular, they charge more than Jim, and are not as responsive, and did not have the expertise to sell my house. I would recommend Jim to anyone that asked.”

Opalmn,  SW Rochester


Jim & Cathy were very helpful, responded with any questions I had right away and were great to work with. Jim helped me understand what all the paperwork was about and what to expect in the process. Everything went smooth. I would recommend them any time.


We had an amazing experience with Jim and his wife! As first time home buyers we felt at ease with them and ended up getting a perfect home. Jim was very knowledgeable about the market as well as home improvements. My wife and I appreciated the time he spent with us.


Thank you and Cathy so much for all of the hard work you did for Dave and I to buy and sell each house. We sure appreciate you helping us find Kent to help us with the mortgage! We absolutely love the new house and the view every morning out the back sliding door. We have to have you guys over this spring for dinner and a fire! We are very grateful that you found this house for us.

Chris and Dave

Jim, it has been great working with you. Thanks for all your guidance & support; we wouldn’t have made it without you!


Cathy was always able to meet us to look at properties. She had impeccable scheduling skills. Even if it was last minutes, she arranged a house showing as soon as possible. This was necessary in the hot housing market we were in. Progressive real estate also had a smooth and easy process which is rare in the complicated world of buying a house. They were knowledgeable in their education about any questions that we had. I would absolutely use them for our next home.


Jim and Cathy Armstrong, Progressive Real Estate Services, provided exceptional customer service for us. They provided the compassionate and professional service we surely needed during our relocation to our new home. We were so thankful they took time to assist us with challenges we faced. We were blessed to have worked with them. They are truly a team that care for their clients happiness. Will recommend them to others without hesitation.


We came to Jim after a terrible experience with another realtor from the Plainview area. I felt like I had to do their job for them. With Jim-everything was taken care of. He set us up for automatic emails for anything remotely close to what we were looking for. And would get back to us the same day when we wanted to look at something. He was honest and gave excellent advice. When we changed our minds with what we were looking for and I stumbled across a property he set us up to look at it that night. After looking at it we decided to put in an offer and Jim stayed up until at least midnight completing the paperwork. The next morning our offer was accepted just before another offer came thru for another couple that had looked at it before us the night before! I’m positive that if we didn’t have Jim, we wouldn’t have our amazing house.


Jim and Cathy were very helpful in the sale of one of my rental properties. I look forward to doing business with them again in the future. Jim also recommended a law office to use for my closing which handled my closing very well.
