Greg and Sharon's property
Greg and I had been looking for property for over two years when we came to Aeneas Valley to meet with Jim at his ranch. Jim never tried to sell us anything; he just listened to what we were looking for. His extensive knowledge of the area seemed unsurpassed; the questions we asked were answered very proficiently. Coming from the city, it was quite the experience meeting a realtor who was so genuine. The beauty of the land sold itself but the exceptional hopitality really topped it off. After looking at only two propertiesl we fell in love with a million dollar view and connot wait to move here.
Thank you Jim for helping us feel at home before we even move in.

We found exactly, what we were looking for...
After looking for several months for the right piece of land, for me and my children, I came across The Real Estate Company of America. I called Jim Platt and took liking to his jovial, helpful, full of information personality and decided to come to see the property. At the ranch I met Jim's wife - Debra, the bubbly fun, gracious host. Met old clients and neighbors, who just showed up at the door like one big family. I stayed overnight and thanks to Jim and Debra I found the exact piece of land I and my children were looking for. We want to extend warm thanks to Jim and Debra for their loving guidance, help and hospitality.
Elwin and Barbara's property
My wife Barbara and I purchased a 20 acre parcel in August of 2008. And we want to say a big "Thanks" to Jim Platt, for all his assistance in getting ahold of this beautiful piece of property. You couldn't have asked for a nicer or more honest and helpful individual than Jim has been to us. And his descriptions of the property were as accurate as could be. We found it to be absolutely beautiful with great mountain views and meadows...just what we wanted. A very peaceful and serene setting. We would highly recommend Jim if you are seeking property. He has a wide knowledge of the area and is a genuine pleasure to work with.

Thomas and I want to thank you again for all you have done for us. Thanks to you we can actually visualize our retirement, even though it is over 20 years away. When we first drove up to our new land, it was so beautiful that it brought tears to my eyes. When I asked Thomas what his first thoughts were, he said, "It had me at hello." He told me he didn't even need to get out of the truck to know that he wanted to buy it. This is our third 20 acre lot we have purchased with your help and we couldn't be more overjoyed with the process of finding the land, walking the properties, even down to the final paperwork. You take customer service to a whole new level. It has been a true pleasure working with you, Jim. You have not only become our land connection, but our friend. Thomas and I look forward to sharing more ventures with you in the future.

Parcel 9, Section 35 Aeneas Valley
We both want to thank you for helping us find our dream property. From our initial contact with you, you provided us with nothing but straight answers. You listened to our property requirements and identified two parcels that would fit our desires. When we selected the parcel of property on Cape Labelle Road you encouraged us to continue with our property search trip in order ensure that this parcel of land was for us. During our land search, we found that the quality, size, and price of your land parcels were unmatched by other opportunities in the marketplace.

Lot 13 Bonaparte Meadows
Never could we be so excited about a property purchase. We are newly married and looking towards retirement. We are very familiarized with the Okanogan Country and when my wife came upon the properties for sale at Bonaparte Meadows, we couldn't resist inquiring. We want to thank you sincerely for your hospitality and we also want to let you know that we can appreciate your love for the land. We bought the one lot and then knew if we didn't purchase the other we'd be kicking ourselves forever. That is why we chased you down to buy the other one.

Thank you so much for the great deal. We are very happy with the land. People here in Reno are surprised by the amazing price & quality of property that you are offering.
Okanogan hugs to you!

Thank you so much for taking an interest in assisting us the way you did. Our purchase was one of the smartest things we've ever done. And when I see the pictures of the properties on your web site, it makes me long to get out there.

Lot 1 Tunk Valley
It is with great pleasure that we write you after our recent Tunk Valley land purchase as you offered us a chance to own a high quality piece of our country's "great natural places". Not only will this beautiful property provide our family with superb outdoor recreation but we are also firm believers in its investment value as well. In addition, the unusually thorough and thoughtful customer service you provided us was truly outstanding. We applaud you for making "real dreams" possible and for the example and commitment you've set on proper land stewardship.

Thank you Jim for assisting us in purchasing not 1 but 2 lots at Bonaparte Meadows. You really went above and beyond! You not only helped us attain a piece of property in beautiful Okanogan County but also educated us in the habitat and culture of the area.

Erick and I spent a fantastic few days in the Okanogan Highlands looking at properties, and purchased a lovely 5-acre parcel covered in wildflowers, with a greenbelt and brook bordering the lot line. Truly a wonderful area with lots to do - many lakes and places to hike, and once over the Canadian border I felt like we were in Tahoe or Napa. The land available is beautiful and reasonable. Jim was truly great to work with - he has a sincere passion for what he's doing, and it shows. He's been supportive every step of the way.

Never have I experienced the personal interest Jim has demonstrated in my recent land purchase. His down-home manner and efficient follow through made him an outstanding and desirable realtor and businessman.

Carl & Mary's Antoine Valley Property
... my wife Mary and I took another trip up to the Okanagan to visit the wineries in Canada and to see our little piece of property up in Cape LaBelle Ranch that Jim had sold us a couple of years back. Part of our itinerary was to also view some larger parcels of property, and the next morning on our way to Canada Jim showed us to another location of his, in the Antoine Valley. We absolutely loved the sites he showed us and we spent a couple of hours walking the land, looking at the views and seeing into the future, especially our children's future. One site he showed us was perfect and we ended up purchasing a 20 acre parcel before Jim and I parted company.

Parcel 7W, Sec 15 - the 2nd piece
With great knowledge and enthusiasm Jim enlightened us as to the geography and weather patterns of Washington State and how these affect the properties we were interested in. It was a lot of fun and no stress. After talking about what we were looking for in a piece of property, Jim drove us to several pieces and walked them with us, pointing out the positives and negatives of each and answering our never-ending stream of questions.
After two days of looking at beautiful scenery, we found two adjacent pieces of property we really liked. We bought one of them that day, easily taking care of the paperwork and financing right there at the ranch. ... a few weeks later we called up Jim and told him we'd like to buy the other piece as well, which we did over the phone and internet. It was so easy! And now we own 40 acres in beautiful Aeneas Valley, and our life-long dreams of owning property in the country have come true!

Parcel 11, Section 5 Aeneas Valley
Looking online for property in the Pacific Northwest, I stumbled unto Jim Platt's web site. I could not get the properties out of my mind, and booked a trip ASAP.
The hospitality of Jim and his assistant Lou was outstanding. I felt like we had known each other for a long time. They made it feel so comfortable being in a state I’d never been in, looking at land I had only seen on the web site.
Having done my research on what kind of land I was looking for, everything at Aeneas Valley exceeded my expectations. The beauty of the countryside took my breath away. Jim showed me a property perfect for my needs with enough space for my animals. He was also very knowledgeable in answering my questions not only about the land, but about climate, geology, and history of the county.
Lot 19 Bonaparte Meadows
In searching for property around Idaho and Washington on the Internet, I found Jim's Web Site. When I searched through his listings and started to communicate with him, I found an area I was interested in seeing in person. He listened to our needs and what properties I was interested in seeing. He gave us some suggestions and shown us some other properties for comparison. I had strong feelings for a 21.45 acre lot in Bonaparte Meadows. He didn't try to change our minds or sway us to one of his properties. We purchased the property and are very happy with it. I'm glad we met Jim and his wife, both great people, and glad to have them as neighbors.

Colleen and I want to thank you for your generous hospitality and help. We have never purchased land before and it was great to find someone that we could trust. We felt that you helped us to clarify what we were looking for and not just out to sell us something. As I look back on the whole experience things went very smooth once we made up our minds.

Lot 3 Bonaparte Meadows
... my husband and I had the good fortune of connecting with Jim Platt via his web site. We were looking for a quiet parcel to retreat and eventually retire to in Eastern Washington. The first parcel we viewed turned out to be too remote for our abilities, so Jim showed us several contiguous parcels near Mt. Bonaparte. At first glance, it seemed that this wasn't what we were looking for either. However, as we walked the property, we liked it more and more, and by the end, we were ready to buy! From beginning to end, working with Jim was a pleasure. He has a "down home", unpretentious manner, and yet is the consummate professional. We will buy more property from him, as our means allow, and feel very blessed to count him as one of our friends.

We were referred to Jim Platt by some locals in the area who supported his great reputation. It's not every day that you find someone that can perfectly match your interests to a particular piece of property. We had extremely high expectations for our retirement property, and with contagious enthusiasm and much diligence Jim found exactly what we wanted. From signing to closing, Jim ensured that the process was smooth.
We are very excited about the property we have purchased from you. Gary and I have put in water, septic, electricity, phone and we are going to build a barn in the spring. We love the property Jim, and are so fortunate to have had you show up at exactly the perfect time in our lives. It is exactly what we were looking for.
