Real estate professional, Jim Pojda of Alain Pinel Realtors, Los Gatos, has received national recognition as Agent of the Month by Quality Service Certification, Inc. (QSC). Jim was selected for this honor from among QSC’s 22,000+ members.  

Singled out because of his results from customer satisfaction surveys administered by Leading Research Corporation, Jim has attained an almost flawless record of consistently earning 100% client service satisfaction. He was granted the Quality Service Certified® Platinum status, representing the highest level of service achievement in the real estate industry. Earlier this year, Jim was recognized as one of the Best of the Business, an honor bestowed on the top 250 real estate service providers in North America.    

Client feedback from the surveys becomes part of the agent’s credentials. An overall satisfaction rating is displayed on the consumer website where sellers and buyers have the ability to select a real estate professional based upon each agent’s validated record of service satisfaction.

“No professional achievement is as important as the delivery of exceptionally satisfying service, and the QSC status is the only recognition in the real estate industry based upon independently validated, measurable service quality and customer satisfaction results. 100% service satisfaction like Jim Pojda has achieved is just awesome,” says Larry D. Romito, President of QSC.
