I couldn’t have asked for a better duo to help me and my fiancé buy our perfect house! I worked with Danielle mostly, and she was so knowledgeable! She also has a vast network of amazing people who can help you with mortgages, insurance, house inspections and more! This made the whole process easy and about as stress free as you can get when it comes to buying a house. She was very prompt in all of our messages. I could call or text her any time of the day. She also kept us on target and kept us realistic. Jim was nice and had our best interest at heart. I hope I don’t have to buy a house again, but if I do, I know who I will reach out to!

Jim helped my mom find house. Once it was time for my family and I to start looking for houses, I knew exactly who I wanted to be our realtor. Jim is incredible!!!! His attention to details and looking for problems in a house. He’s very knowledgeable and was interested in what we were looking for and helping us sell our home at the time. We can’t thank him enough for everything he’s done. We appreciate him and his team (Danielle) very much.

Jim and his daughter Danielle are two of the most delightful people I've met. Jim has helped my family buy several homes. He goes well out of his way to always answer a text or a call. Always has time available to do a private showing of a house. He was open and honest with us, telling us when it wasn't the right house for us for whatever reason (old furnace, roof, etc), which is a true show of character for me. My entire family loves him, and we wish he could come be a part of our family. He is very tall, and you'll probably watch him hit his head a couple times, which he always laughs off. Thanks so much Jim and Danielle! You guys truly are the best. You helped us find our perfect forever home.

Working with Jim Kempf was a dream! He helped me find my dream home, and worked tirelessly to make sure I got the deal I wanted. He pays close attention to detail, and is quick to point out potential problems on each property. Whenever I had a question I could text Jim and he would be on it immediately. Though I can’t imagine ever leaving my new home... if I do I will definitely be working with Jim again!

Jim is very good at pointing out the good and bad of houses. He’s more interested in you getting the house you want than a quick sale. He has very good knowledge of houses, the housing market, the areas of St. Louis, and has connections to people if you have specific questions.

Past Client

I have worked with Jim for 6 years now - he has taken me from buying my first home to now selling my first home. Jim goes above & beyond in helping his clients - he is extremely trustworthy and was always going the extra mile in helping make sure everything went as smoothly as possible. You'd be lucky to have a realtor like Jim!
I was a first-time home buyer. Jim was extremely patient and helpful as I looked through many options before settling on a home. From the start to the end of the process, Jim was always accessible and willing to answer my questions in a timely manner. Would definitely recommend.

Susan M.

Jim goes above and beyond. He is exceptional and makes the process seem so early. He kept us up to date and was always available when we tried to contact him. He makes you feel like you are his only client. I can honestly say that I have nothing negative to say about him or his work.

Bithiah H.

Jim made our first time home buying experience awesome. Although we haven’t known Jim for a long time we quickly felt like he had been a friend of ours for a long time. Jim wasn’t concerned about the cost of the home, he was more concerned about if it was going to be a suitable home for us personally.
We looked at serval homes at substantially different prices but each time Jim kept our needs as a priority.
There are no words that could describe how good of a person Jim was with us.
We encountered unusual listing agents and properties but Jim remained professional and always on our side.
He was knowledgeable agent, very professional, very humble, always accessible, and flexible with his availability with our restrictive schedules.
Jim was informative and assertive when situations call for them.
We were able to purchase a home at the area we wanted, at the price we budgeted, and in a time-line we needed in a limited market.
Whether you are a 1st time home buyer or not if you’re looking for an excellent agent, Jim should be your agent!

My wife and I were first time home-buyers when we reached out to Jim. Admittedly this came with a ton of questions on our part and Jim was more than willing to sit down for hours and answer everything we threw at him. I know for a fact we weren't the easiest couple to help shop because we changed our location window a couple of times and Jim was able to share his regional knowledge every step of the way. He was easy to contact and was great at managing the complicated timeline around buying a house. He also has a great network of local contacts to help with the entire home-buying experience. I will happily recommend him to all of my friends and family looking to buy in the St. Louis area.

Past Client

I had a home that needed some TLC. I was worried about what I would get for it and was hoping to at least pay off what I owed on it. Well the same day it was listed Jim had someone interested in looking at it. Well the next day there was a contract on it and "Bam" I sold it! I got more than what I owed and was very pleased. Thanks to Jim and how awesome he is it was stress free and I couldn't be happier. We will look to Jim when we look for our next home. Thanks Jim! You are the best!

Theresa S.

Jim Kempf was my agent for selling my home. He sold it on the first day with closing happening within 3 weeks. He was very nice to work with and it was a pleasure working with him.

I would highly recommend Jim as an agent for your home sale/purchase.


I have bought/sold multiple houses with Jim over the last 5 years. His knowledge in real estate, professionalism, and willing to go the extra mile makes Jim a great asset to have when selling, or looking for your new home. I wouldn't use anyone else.

Ricky T.

Was very lucky to have Jim recommended to us by a family member. Working with him was great, he gave us advice and recommendations every step of the way (picking the right area, making the right offer, dealing with loans and inspections, etc) he helped us find and get our dream home at a great price. Thanks to Jim we made a great choice and avoided bad deals and problems we did not even consider. He is also a great person, very nice, friendly and trust worthy. We cannot recommend him enough!

Todd S.

There’s a lot of uncertainty when it comes to selling a home, especially during a market that is unpredictable. Enter Jim and Danielle, and within the first weekend, we had an offer. Their preparation led us confidently through the whole process, including how they would approach the market and what we needed to be aware of while we closed from another state. They took the time to listen to our concerns, guided our questions with answers, and we easily put our full trust in them every step of the way. Their personalities shine bright because they have a passion for what they do. They included items like full-colored brochures for the open house, plus invited others in the community to check out the home. Through it all, Jim and Danielle are top of their class and deserve a look for anyone interested in selling or buying a home in the STL area!

Claire L.

With how tumultuous the market is right now, I wasn't sure if this was the right time to be diving into buying a home for the first time but when I contacted Danielle she was able to set my fears at ease and help me look at my own pace. Whenever I saw a house I was interested in, they both would make time to do a second walkthrough before putting in a bid to really make sure we had a good understanding of the house's attributes and flaws. The expertise and attention you get is unmatched not to mention the excellent vendors they work with. Every single person on their team and that they recommended to me treated me with a lot of care and consideration and took the time to explain things to me without me ever feeling talked down to. Enough good things cannot be said about Jim and Danielle and I look forward to us working together again in the future!

Past Client

Jim was recommended to me by a neighbor. I was looking for an aggressive, hard working realtor with good knowledge about the real estate market. I was not disappointed with Jim. He took time to clearly explain all of the processes and truly cares about his clients. He is professional, courteous and is more than willing to go the extra mile. Because of his hard work and efforts, my real estate transaction went smoothly.

Keith H.

Although the housing market was maddeningly frustrating, Jim and Danielle were the best. They are honest and clearly wanted the best for me and my family. Never once did they encourage us to make an offer beyond our means. Being able to trust someone in this business is priceless, and The Kempfs will earn your trust.

Jennifer T.

The Kempf Team sold my house in 6 days! I worked with Jim with for most of the sale. The process was easy and fast. Jim and Danielle know the market! Thank you for making the sale of my home effortless.

Ray B.

Jim is fantastic to work with. He communicates frequently and makes you feel like you're always in the loop. His experience in working with people all around the area truly shines and he gets the job done with ease and professionalism. He is always willing to go that extra mile for you. We wouldn't use anyone else and I would not hesitate to refer him to any of my friends or family.

Past Client

Jim Kempf has been more than helpful on more than one occasion, he would make time and go out of his way to set up a meet with the client as soon as needed. I'm a first time buyer so he answered any question that I had not just about the property but he is also very knowledgeable when it comes to loan process and procedures. My purchase was completed way ahead of closing schedule as requested by me. I was very impressed with Mr. Kempfs knowledge, commitment and help, and even after my purchase was completed I would give him a call if I need any help with the house and he would go beyond to help me. I would recommend Mr. Kempf to everyone I know and the ones I don't... thanks a lot Jim you been of great help

Jim and Danielle were a top-notch real estate team in the recent sale of my home! They are knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. But most importantly, they made the sale of my home a priority. Because I had been in my home for more than 20 years, they were so informative and helpful in getting my home ready to list. They guided me through the pre-inspection process, and were so responsive when I had any questions or concerns. The color brochures showcased my home perfectly. They took the time to go door-to-door in my subdivision to invite all the neighbors to my open house. What a great idea to have a happy hour for the opening night! They committed to doing open houses the entire first weekend, even though I had a solid offer on the first night. When we sat down to review the contracts, I trusted their expertise to help me choose the best contract and negotiate the details. Everything went so smoothly, and their attention to details took us through the inspection & appraisal to the closing day! Thank you Jim and Danielle! I will highly recommend your services to all our family and friends.

Cynthia B.

Jim Kempf was easy to work with. He made everything workable, and I enjoyed working with him.


We are so lucky to have had Jim Kempf as our agent. He sold two homes for us and then made a little miracle happen in the process of buying our dream home. Buying and selling can be very stressful and Jim made all of it a very positive experience with fantastic results!
Jim is truly a man of integrity- that’s the first thing we noticed and he just reinforced that assertion. He’s diligent, personable and proved to be a real authority as he did a wonderful job of informing and educating us throughout both the buying and selling process. He listens well, is generous with his time and was always prompt to respond to our onslaught of questions.
Jim Kempf is everything you’d want in a friend…but he also happens to be an expert in all aspects of home buying and selling. His high level of competence, knowledge of the local market and positive outlook put us at ease and helped us make good decisions all along the way.
Another big difference maker is that Jim, when asked, was able to connect us to service providers who were excellent as well. This was a huge factor to us, especially when we were selling.
We could not have asked for a better real estate agent or better results. We have enthusiastically recommended Jim to family and friends and will continue to do so!

Past Client

It was a blessing to have Jim as my agent. He held my hand through the entire process from beginning to end. When I felt discouraged, he was there to reassure me that everything would be okay. And whenever I called him, he always got back with me promptly. I can't say enough about Jim Kempf! I would highly recommend him for any real estate needs....which I already have.

Jeff T.

We had a wonderful experience with Jim Kempf as our realtor. We were transferred for work suddenly and had a short time to finish reno projects and all those things that need to be completed to put a house on the market. He gave us great advice on what things to focus on and what things to leave as they were in the house. It really helped to lessen our load. Jim went above and beyond--meeting contractors and seeing to things being completed when we had already relocated. This was our first home sale and we truly knew we were in great hands. We did not have to worry about anything. Jim is also a great communicator, and kept us apprised of everything we needed to know and even what to expect. I got several calls from people in the neighborhood that were impressed with how much he did to promote our open house! We got a offer above asking only 3 days after the open house because we were priced right due to Jim's smart analysis! Our home was not an expensive one, but he always treated us as if we were his most important clients. We would highly recommend Jim. He is wise, not only about the market, but about homes and renovations too! Bottom line, if you are a buyer or a seller, hiring Jim would definitely give you an advantage! Most importantly, Jim is very personable, never pushy, and he listens to you!
