Welcome to my website.  I'm a native of the Quad Cities.  There are What I have to offer a Buyer:

I'm a native of the Quad Cities. 


I have 2 wonderful daughters, Hannah, 18 & Sarah, 13 who give me a great reason to enjoy my life.  I have 25 years experience in Human Services helping people solve their problems & improve their lives.  I've been a Realtor for 15 years and love assisting people as a problem solver, being their trusted advisor & finding the "right" property for them.  I derive great pleasure in seeing the excitement & smiles on their faces when their sale or purchase is completed.  

I feel a responsibility as a member of my community to give back.  This job allows me the opportunity to do that.  I serve on the Boards of Bettendorf Community Schools Foundation, Friendy House, Rotary Club of Davenport, Jewish Federation of the Quad Cities & Temple Emanuel.

I enjoy many genres of music, golf, traveling, gardening, activities with my kids & practicing yoga.

Jim Farber is a true professional as a Realtor. We had 2 other realtors for 2 years who did nothing. As soon as we gave Jim the listing things started to happen.
