Laurie D.


Jim and Rhonda were awesome in helping me sell my home and buy a new home. We had some problems with the original buyers of my home which caused the closing to be postponed for 3 weeks. Eventually their financing fell through. Jim kept me inform the whole time with what was going on. When the financing fell through Jim found a new buyer and we closed within a week of them looking at the house. I would highly recommend them for buying and selling of a home.


Steve & Deb S.


Jim and his wife Rhonda were very helpful in the purchase of our house. The closing happened very quickly (3 days), they were also helpful in guiding us in what we needed to do to make this happen. We were also leaving on vacation so they were willing to help with the whole process to make sure everything went smoothly. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Actually 2 of our children have used them to purchase homes and were very satisfied!


Dave L. & Karen K.


Anyone who chooses Jim to buy or sell a home will have picked the best. He spent a lot of time with us getting our home ready to sell, he even helped me paint the entry! He was always available by phone and kept us up-to-date on the latest happenings. Jim listed some items we wanted to get rid of on Craig's List and they were gone in 1 day. He helped us find people to help us load the truck, get rid of 3 refrigerators and because we had a short time to move after closing he was there vacuuming and sweeping the garage! Jim is an honest, dependable fun to work with guy. His real estate knowledge is top notch and you will not go wrong with Jim DiOrio!

We want to thank Jim and Rhonda for their undaunted assistance in helping us find and purchase just the right home.   Never have we worked with such selfless, giving, and persevering realtors.

Jim was very through and educated us on the process of buying a house.  He told us the pros and cons of each house we looked at.  He helped us find the house we have always wanted. We would recommend Jim to anyone in the market.

We worked with Jim DiOrio and his team to sell our home in Rockford, MN as we moved to Colorado.  He even provided a RE/MAX realtor contact in Colorado to secure our new home.  Jim has a very personable communication style and was willing to answer all of our questions.  He provided us great suggestions to sell our home as well as a detailed market analysis to identify an appropriate list price.  By following his advice, we were able to quickly secure an offer and work through the closing.  The RE/MAX team helped us to work through all the closing process logistics and paperwork so it wasn’t confusing to us.  Jim took time to make sure we knew what was going on every step of the way.  In addition, he monitored the residence we were selling to make sure nothing happened to it during the process.  I would recommend using Jim DiOrio and his team if you would like a positive experience either selling or purchasing a new home.

 We most definitely would recommend RE/MAX Connections!

We used RE/MAX Connections to help buy a house. Jim is a very knowledgeable guy. He is easy to talk to and he knows how to get answers. When we were making an offer on houses and the selling agent was slow to get back to us Jim was persistent on contacting them and then updating us so that we were never in the dark.

Jim never left a question unanswered and always kept us informed. Rhonda was always available early in the morning to talk with me about houses that we wanted to view. She never hesitated to call with updates and quickly responded to my emails.

We are very happy with our transaction. As first time homebuyers, Jim and Rhonda helped give us the knowledge on more than just buying the house; they helped us with some home owner questions as well.

We would not hesitate for a moment to recommend them!

We recently closed on the sale of our house in Hanover, MN with the help of Jim and Rhonda DiOrio of RE/MAX Connections in Buffalo. Although my wife Mary and I are both career real estate professionals, we deal exclusively in the commercial markets and needed a residential expert to counsel us in listing, showing and selling our home. Our paths have crossed with Jim's many times over the years, beginning with Mary renting a townhouse from him over 25 years ago. More recently, both he and I have served on various advisory Commissions in the City of Hanover.

When it came time to sell our house we had owned for over 20 years, Jim DiOrio was an easy choice to list and sell it for us. We were confident of his market knowledge and ability to market the property in its best light. We got much more! Not only did Jim and Rhonda "diplomatically" explain what needed to be done to the house to maximize its sales potential, they did it with a focus on the bottom line and helped us get the most of our limited improvement dollars. They even talked us out of some expenses that we had assumed would be necessary.

The DiOrio team provided feedback from every showing (more than 20), and coached us on countering the offers we received. Looking back on the process, Mary and I believe that the full sales potential of our house, in terms of price, marketing time and "fix-up" costs to sell was achieved through the efforts and expertise of RE/MAX connections of Buffalo.

We would not hesitate for a moment to recommend them. In fact, since our closing, our son and his wife decided to market their home in Albertville. It's listed with Jim DiOrio and RE/MAX Connections, and they are getting the same great advice and service we experienced.

Honest, Knowledgeable, Great Communication and Outstanding Service!

After our Mother passed away, my brothers and I needed to take care of her estate, which included the sale of her townhome and choosing an agent to help us.  After looking at our options, Jim and Rhonda were clearly the best choice and we could not have been happier with the outcome.  We knew Jim and Rhonda, would 1) be honest; 2) be knowledgeable about the local market having lived in the area for 20 years; 3) provide excellent suggestions; 4) act on the behalf of their client; and 5) be timely in their communications.

I can’t say enough about how smooth the process went.  Both Jim and Rhonda did a tremendous amount of research and provided us with a lot of information to help determine an appropriate asking price. They did not pressure us, but did help set our expectations.

The property was in pretty good condition, but needed some minor maintenance to make it sale ready.  Jim walked through the townhome with us in detail and helped us put together a game plan for prepping it before it went on the market.  He even stopped by with a caulk gun to spot treat some of the seams along the back of a cabinet. This was outstanding service!!!  Once we had the space ready, Rhonda did a great job of photographing and presenting the layout on the internet.

We received some interest and offers early and Jim handled each of these professionally and timely. Jim guided us through the process of negotiating and gave us solid advice as he acted on our behalf. We were never pressured to sell or accept something that was outside our comfort level.  Following the acceptance of an offer, the closing process went very smooth.  Jim and Rhonda made sure all the paperwork was completed and in order for the closing and everything was wrapped up without any issues.

Overall the process went very smooth and I have and will continue to recommend RE/MAX Connections to anyone looking to either market or purchase a home.  We were VERY pleased with the entire process from start to finish.

Jim was the commercial realtor on the first property I considered and I trusted him. In the past, he was generous in letting my Rotary Club use one of his spaces for the Toys for Tots program one year and I really enjoyed working with him. I was very satisfied with the service I received during my transaction and I would absolutely recommend RE/MAX Connections and the DiOrio team to my friends & family.

Words cannot express how much I appreciate all you've done.

This is just a little something to show how much I appreciate all your help in finding my cozy little home. I feel I've been there for years (except for the boxes). Your support, encouragement, knowledge and time made my first home buying experience so much easier. Also, the motion light works perfectly and I feel safer now that I'm getting home more often or leaving when it's dark. Thank you!
