Jim's career in real estate started long before he became a licensed Realtor. As the son of a home builder, he worked as a carpenter and in a lumber yard before attending Brown Institute and graduating with a degree in Radio Broadcasting. He returned to Real Estate by growing his family construction business from 2 employees to over 80. After selling the construction business, he became a licensed Real Estate agent and has made it his goal to simplify and de-mystifying the process of buying and selling homes. Jim lives in Maplewood with his family.
