It’s tough to say which Mulvey knows best: Ardsley and the Rivertowns, or real estate. As a lifelong Ardsley resident, this dad of three knows the desirable locale and the surrounding area like the back of his hand. Brought up in a family of realtors, with nearly two decades of experience under his own belt, he’s well-versed in the unique ins and outs of buying and selling a home in Westchester. Put that altogether, and it’s one of the main reasons so many have appointed Mulvey as trusted partner over the years. And, it’s no wonder he’s consistently the top agent in the Ardsley school district, and has been named one of the top twenty-five agents in Westchester.
Mulvey has a genuine interest in getting to know his clients’ specific wants and needs, and he guides them through every step of the buying or selling process with patience and skill. His deep roots in the community, along with a knack for technology, make transactions... More

Real Estate Expertise
I have been a licensed Real Estate Agent since 1996, becoming a full time Broker in 1998. I was raised in Ardsley NY and over the years have become an expert in all areas of Westchester County.
James helped us in finding our dream home that we just closed last week. We have been working with James for 2 years and all this time he has been amazingly patient and accommodating. He is very knowledgeable about the West chester county area and showed us more than a dozen homes in this time span in 3 different towns. Once we found our dream home, he helped us navigate through a tough bidding process when we only had 10% down. Once the contract was signed, he arranged the home inspection, the attorney, the septic inspection and even my mortgage provider. After I closed my home, he helped with the paint job, flooring, carpeting etc. All in all I am extremely happy that I trusted Jim for my family needs.

I am glad to have worked with James Mulvey, the experience of finding a new home was fantastic, since I travel extensively, he was very flexible and supportive to accommodate my needs, and beyond that very professional and with a great expertise of the market, taking care of every little detail. He made my experience enjoyable and valuable. Thank you Jim!
The original sale of the house fell through. This had to do with the buyer's house falling through. Jim was very helpful in relisting the property and eventually selling it again. He was most responsive to all of the issues that arose because of this.. He was able to contact the tradespeople I needed to relist the house and organized all the work that had to be done

James Mulvey was very in-tune with what we wanted from a Real Estate Professional-always prompt in answering our questions, and our concerns. We could always count on his honesty. He always had our best interests in the forefront.

Jim is responsive and responsible. He has thorough knowledge and experience in real estate in the area. He was very generous with his time and marketing efforts. He listened to our thoughts and needs and was never pushy nor negative. I highly recommend him as an agent in the area.

We had an amazing experience dealing with Jim, and would highly recommend him. To start he was very patient with us when we starting looking for a home in Westchester, and finally helped us find our dream home. He is also very knowledgeable and acted as a trusted advisor in so many ways. Even after we closed on our house, Jim has made himself available to our family in so many ways. Whether its finding a particular expert or just bouncing ideas off. He has become a true friend to our family.

Jim was very knowledgeable of all things needed for my sale He and his sister worked very hard for me to sell my home and I really appreciated all the hard work

James was responsive to our needs and very helpful and knowledgeable. He was able to be honest with regard to the value of the homes we looked at and showed us homes that fit our budget with what we wanted. He went out of his way to meet us at homes after hours and weekends. He made the home buying experience pleasant and I would highly recommend his services.

Jim is a very thoughtful and considerate person to work with. He was extremely helpful in negotiating the price on my co-op and helping me arrange for inspection, legal support, renovation contractors, etc. as I had time constraints and was moving from out of state. He had previously helped my son and his wife through a lengthy search and successful home purchase in New Rochelle.

Everything James told us was spot on. He explained the entire process to us and he kept us informed through out our dealing with him. Best of all he told us that things would happen before they actually happened so there were no surprises. We were really impressed with his "follow up" skills as he left no stone unturned to get our house sold. His knowledge of the area, the market and the school system is the reason we felt James was the best person to represent us in the selling of our home. It is my belief that for the reasons I have stated above that our house sold in record time and for more than our asking price. I would have no problem recommending James to anyone looking to sell or for that matter buy a home in our area. Thank you.

Working with Jim Mulvey has been a FANTASTIC experience! My husband and I highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a house (experienced owners or newbies like ourselves). From the start he has been wonderful to work with, he is very quick with responses to our questions, emails, phone calls, etc and he listens to what we want for in a house ( he also had some great suggestions for things we didn't know about that helped us with our search). He was never pushy or pressing and let us come to our own conclusions while giving us his honest input. He is so knowledgeable - he knew everything about every home we saw because he works so hard and has so much experience in the area. From the basics like neighborhood, school district and property lines to details about the home. In every house he could tell us the system that is available (for heating, cooling, water, etc) and could explain to us how it worked, how well it worked, the upkeep, the cost/saving for replacement and so much more. We were impressed but knew when we struck gold when other agents would ask him questions for their clients (in front us us) at a house showing (this happened so often!). Once we found our house Jim was there to help us through the whole process and once we closed he had helped us with referrals for projects we needed to do (landscaping, contractors, floors, etc). He has also gone above and beyond to help us out when a key wasn't working and made new ones, letting contractors in when we weren't available and to picking us up from the train station (from the city with no cars- but he helped us with that too, by referring us to one of the nicest car salesman I've ever met) . Jim is honest, hardworking, kind, knowledge and so wonderful to work with, we highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.

We had the benefit of having Jim help us with purchasing our home in Ardsley, and subsequently facilitating its' sale. He was knowledgeable, available, professional, and always conducting himself with friendly demeanor while ensuring we were well accommodated. We were able to sell our house quickly and that is thanks to Jim's help.

I retained Jim to sell my apartment based on the incredibly positive experience I had with him in purchasing the unit in 2008. Jim's knowledge of the Westchester County market is comprehensive, his expertise is top-notch and he is very responsive in answering all questions quickly and thoroughly. Most importantly, Jim is a person of complete integrity -- his word can be trusted. And that's a wonderful quality when trusting someone with such a large transaction. I wholeheartedly recommend Jim Mulvey for both buyers and sellers.

Jim was our primary contact point for our Westchester home search. He is very knowledgeable in the area and very attentive to our needs. We would highly recommend Jim to anyone looking to see homes and research the area.

Jim represented my wife and i as the buyers agent in our first home purchase. We were looking to buy our first home in Westchester County, New York and had narrowed down our options to the River towns. Jim was a pleasure to work with from the very beginning. Besides being knowledgeable about the area, the prices in the neighborhood and what best deal one could get within budget he also educated us throughout the home buying process. He is very approachable and always available to answer our questions/emails. We highly recommend Jim and wish him the best !!

Jim is a terrific broker. He worked very hard and got an excellent result. Deal was complex as was trying to sell both a house and a plot of land. Jim also followed up as to water bills and miscellaneous items. This made the process much easier.

Jim was referred by a friend and I couldn't be happier with the way everything worked out. Jim took the time to show us a ton of great listings while providing valuable input on pricing, potential for improvements, explanations on how the different neighborhoods have changed over the past years and insights on the direction things could be headed. More so than providing everything asked of him, he really shined by introducing us to different areas within Westchester that we hadn't thought to consider. We closed on a great apartment in Hartsdale this November and couldn't be happier with the purchase. Jim was there every step of the way to help us through the process and ensure everything went smoothly.

My wife and I worked with Jim for over six months when searching for our new home. His commitment and patience in helping us with our search should set the standard for all realtors. Ultimately, we put ourselves in a position that no buyer wants to be in. Jim represented both my wife and I and the seller during the price negotiation and through closing. We felt complete trust in his ability to represent both parties fairly and equally throughout the process. We're confident that we got a fair deal on a home that we look forward to spending many years in.

Jim Mulvey is a really great guy to work with and is very good at what he does. Fast to answer emails. Fast to get the answers I need. Very attentive. Was very helpful and made my home buying experience much easier.

Jim had a house on the market that we wanted to take a look at. Wed did not have an agent. Since we had already planned a visit to the area, he very graciously accommodated us, connected us with his colleague who serves us our agent. Jim was very responsive and considerate.
