9-1-17 In a tough market, I couldn't have asked for a better agent and advocate. James and his team did a fantastic job on the sale of my house. He was straight forward with the buyer's realtor, but represented my interest well. He truly went out of his way to help. At seemingly any hour and always responding promptly to emails and phone calls. I highly recommend James and his team for his extensive knowledge, professionalism and his honesty. Thanks again for a job well done!!" jsredx5 31311 St Rt 3, Carthage NY 13619 jsredx5

July 17, 2015- We just sold and bought a new house with James. James is very reliable, knowledgeable and a genuine person. He had our buyer for our house interested even before we had it on the market. Everything was a very smooth transaction. Sonia filled in for him in his absence and everyone in his office is very kind. Would recommend this realtor for anyone in the market for selling or buying. Sally Zurenda

April 4, 2015- to sell your home is (almost) never an easy or lighthearted decision.....it was a difficult decision for me and I knew I wanted a realtor who truly cared about the process and me, the homeowner. I was very fortunate to have found Sonia, her husband James and son Danny who not only put in their professional best (they went above and beyond!!) but also took the time to listen to my concerns, my worries and approached it all with a good sense of humor! The process turned out to be a lengthy one but thanks to Sonia, who helped move the process along as the buyer's realtor did not live up to her responsibilities, the closing date finally arrived and my house sold. Sonia and her team were there for me all the way, I would have lost patience and my mind if it wouldn't have been for her ability to guide me and reassure me along the way!!! When buying or selling property, you need people who know what they are doing at all times, and you need people who will treat you with respect and give you reassurance when needed - All American Realty is the whole deal!! I would not hesitate to ask for their help again should I move back to the area and needed to buy or rent - I recommend All American Realty to anybody who is looking to buy, sell or rent - they are with you every step of the way! Cornelia Outwater
We recently bought a house through James. He is very knowledgeable of the area to include facilities surrounding the purchasing area and local house values. My wife and I were first time home buyers and James took the time to explain everything to us and even went as far as taking care of the selling agents responsibilities in order to get us into our house quicker. I have already recommended him to friends of ours who in turn, recommended him to there friends as well. James is straight forward about all the properties and if he doesn't know something about the property, he will get you an answer quickly. If I had to buy another house in this area in the future I would definitely use James again. We highly recommend James and All American Reality.
3/11/2013: My husband and I are getting ready to move to the fort drum area and were having to choose a house based off of pictures, descriptions and asking lots of questions. Sonia Conlin assisted us with our search. She was incredibly helpful and honest throughout the entire process. We kept having to change our budget and needs and she was patient with us through the whole thing. She would tell us about properties as soon as they became available and ask the landlord questions on our behalf. Even though we ended up having to choose a different apartment because of our budget, I wanted to use All American Real Estate and will continue to recommend them to everyone we know. Ali Jennings
Chris Virgil-Stone Testimonial: I had been working with another realtor in the area. I switched to Barb Skok because she was a friend and old neighbor. The difference in realtors was night and day. She was full of information and help with every aspect of buying. Being a first time home buyer she went above and beyond to help me, answer any questions and provide exceptional service. When Barb was not able to make a meeting, she had another agent meet with us who was able to provide the same kind of service.With the house being a duplex and me a new landlord, James provided me with all the forms I needed and advice as well to be successful. I will be going with them for my next home as well as any future rental properties.
January 2013: First Time Homebuyers. Sonia Conlin was our personal real estate agent and we could not have been more pleased with working with her! She was dedicated and hard working and helped us get through some tough times! I will recommend her and her team to anyone. She fought hard to get us our first home (short sale) and we will welcome her into our home anytime! James also helped us frequently and showed us the house that we ended up buying. All American is a very professional team that will go above and beyond and will make you feel like you are part of their family! Thank you All American! We couldn't be happier! The Venturelli's
11/9/2012: Simply fantastic experience working with All American Real Estate! James, Sonia and the entire All American team went above and beyond the call of duty in helping me to find my dream piece of property in the North Country. As a military veteran and long time military family, the Conlins, and in fact their entire team of administrative folks and brokers, have connections to the military, understand the unique challenges of all military families, and no doubt will provide you the best buying or renting experience possible. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy, rent or find that perfect piece of property. Experienced, professional and motivated, you will be extremely pleased working with All American Real Estate. Mark W. Suich, Colonel (Retired) US Army
James Conlin, OUTSTANDING James is superior as a realtor and All American Staff is top notch. He sold us our house in Watertown and 4 years later James got our house sold in less than 90 days (less than 45 actually). And now after moving to the Dallas, TX area, I really appreciate what he's done for us. We are in the process, here in the DFW area, dealing with lesser Realtors who know nothing. James sets a high standard for Realtors. The big city Realtors can't touch what James and All American can do for their customers. -Steve- Thank you All American Real Estate
Date: March 26, 2011 To: Whom it may concern Outstanding service. I bought my house from James Conlin and years later when we decided to move he got it sold for us in less than 90 days. All American took care of us from the time we walked in the door throughout the while process and to when we had to move away. In comparison to what we had to deal with here in the Dallas Ft.Worth area for realtors. James Conlin and All American Real Estate are A#1 top of the line. James and his staff are productive and constantly on their job. They are a 24 - 7 realtor, they will provide positive results. Thank you All American Real Estate
To whom it may concern, I met James Conlin in 2003 during a military deployment to Afghanistan. James and I worked together in a capacity that allowed us to discuss life at home and we began to develop a friendship. James spoke of the fact that he was a part time realtor and that he was interested in pursuing that as a career once he retired from the military. James immediately offered his assistance to me as I was contemplating home ownership. James was the right realtor for me and my family for a number of reasons. The foremost was that he was incredibly dedicated and extremely knowledgeable in every aspect of home purchasing. At no time was he ever, invasive or overbearing. His patience and understanding during this time period was invaluable as my wife and I were very indecisive and unsure about a myriad of issues as first time home buyers. This paid off as our first offer on a house turned out to be a disastrous situation that James resolved professionally. At the home inspection it was noticed that the chimney was faulty and had been leaking for quite some time. There was a significant amount of water damage. As we withdrew our offer the selling realtor became very unprofessional and was calling my wife and I with threats for withdrawing the offer. James immediately intervened and quickly put an end to the situation. A few weeks later James showed us the house we would eventually purchase. We used his advice and made an offer that was acceptable to both the seller and us. The entire purchase from start to finish was virtually stress free as James handled everything for us. Being a military service member, three years later we were required to move which led to the sale of our home. We again chose James as our selling agent. At the time our house went on the market I was deployed to Iraq. James dealt directly with my wife who had very positive things to say. The sale of the house came about at a time when the market was awful. James was untiring as he advertised and sought out a buyer for our home. James held open houses and placed advertisements on different web sites at his own expense. His efforts led to the eventual sale of the house at the price we were asking. James did not stop there. As a testament to how he treated my wife and I as customers, James sought us out a reputable realtor in the area we were moving. During the time of the move my family and I were forced to be separated in order for our children to finish the school year. James personally assisted my wife with the moving process; additionally, James stayed in touch with myself and the realtor he recommended ensuring that everything went well for our next home purchase. I consider James a close personal friend, a professional realtor, and would recommend him to any person attempting to buy or sell a home. I can be contacted at any time at the following: Kevin W.

James Conlin, 1. James helped me buy my first house while I was stationed at Fort Drum, NY. When we bought our house we looked at numerous houses and even put an offer on a house that was not accepted, but James kept a positive attitude that we would find the house for us. A couple weeks later he went to put a house on the market and thought it was perfect for us. It was and we made an offer on the spot. 2. When I received orders to Officer Candidate School James was the only agent I thought of to sale my house. This was after the housing market crashed and the economy was on a downward turn. I had made numerous improvements and James gave me a good number to start with. We declined one offer and lowered our price once to get a good offer on our house that I thought was fair and we made money on. In todayÕs economy I think if you make money on a house after living there for only two years your agent did a good job. 3. In conclusion James would make anyone a good broker/agent. He is well accomplished and very knowledgeable in the real-estate market. I would recommend him to anyone that needed an agent in the Fort Drum area. Aaron Davis/Abby Davis
November 16, 2009 To Whom It May Concern: Our home just closed last week and just wanted to communicate that James Conlin is a superior real estate agent. We had the privilege of hiring James as both our buying and selling agent. When seeking to purchase a home James made sure to check out the specific details of what we were looking for to eliminate options that would not work for us and aid us in finding the perfect home. James helped us to find the home and then fought for us every step of the way. He is an agent who is there in person for his clients--not one who sends the offer and hopes for the best. In our situation his presence got us our home in competition! When the time to sell came there was no other thought in our minds as to who would best sell our home. James had seen the transformation we had made in the home and worked hard to sell it for us. Even as the market softened our agent did not give up and was there with advice and as much advertising as he could muster. We are delighted to have worked with James and only wish that we could take him along with us to our new post to assist in finding a home just right for us! James is a first class agent who will stop at nothing to find or sell your home! Richard and Kimberly McCutcheon
Date: November 13, 2009 To: Whom it may concern From: Henry Today I was asked by James Conlin for a letter of recommendation. I am honored and thrilled to have this opportunity to recognize individual excellence, both personally and professionally. I have been fortunate enough to know James professionally and personally for the last 3 years. As a professional, James is routinely raising the customer service paradigm in our area. James has gotten to the point where he can only compete with himself with regard to customer service and professionalism, having surpassed his contemporaries in both areas some time ago. Perhaps his greatest strength is his refusal to limit his professional growth and service commitment to historical standards established by people who are unwilling to make the sacrifices that James makes willingly on a daily basis. His drive is unparalleled, his honesty immeasurable and his aspirations without limits. Most encouraging and impressive, however, is that James as a person dwarfs the superlatives used above to describe him as a professional. At his core in his personal and professional lives is one guiding principle: Genuinely care about the people you help first, and success will follow. James only has one level of commitment as a husband, father, friend and businessman Ð complete, full-throttle, undeterred, and admirable. It is my honor and pleasure to recommend James Conlin. With Appreciation; Henry

I worked with Barbara back in 2010-2012 when she was a Family Readiness Support Assistant, and I have nothing but great things to say about her. She truly is the epitome of a responsible, trustworthy individual. Her dedication to her job and work ethic puts all others to shame. Her upbeat personality is also contagious. She makes every work experience an enjoyable one. I would work with Barbara again in a heartbeat, and recommend her to all of my friends and family. Thu, Dec. 4, 2012 Samuel Lyon

Barbara is a very intelligent, positive individual. I have had the pleasure of working with her during one of the biggest decisions of my life: purchasing my first home! Without question, she has played a valuable role in my decision and I couldn't be happier with the overall outcome. She is knowledgeable, trustworthy, honest, qualified, and very smart. I couldn't think of a better resource for any type of real estate need. Thu, Dec. 13, 2012 Terry Tuner
Barbara has been an absolute blessing to deal with! By far, she's one of the most creative Realtors we've ever dealt with. Not only did she give us various options when selling our house in a down market, but she also provided attentive service and walked us through the entire process. She definitely knows a lot about the area and her ability to break down concepts to help us see the end goal was invaluable. Thu, Dec. 13, 2012 Sherry Ashcraft
