Broker of Record
DRE Lic. #01935781
Jim’s background is in journalism and communications. His first job coming to California from Boston in 1978 was as a newspaper reporter in San Diego. Jim also holds a lifetime instructor credential for the California Community Colleges. Tired of working as a reporter for minimum wage with a Master’s Degree, teaching offered a rewarding second income. And then something unexpected occurred! Tired of renting, Jim looked into buying a house for himself and ended up taking a class in Real Estate Principles. In that class, he met several real estate agents and, one thing led to another, Jim became a real estate agent.
During the past 41 years, Jim has been an active real estate agent and real estate broker. Aside from winning numerous production awards over that time, Jim has also been named Broker of the Year 4 times by the San Diego Association of Realtors (twice), The North San Diego Association of Realtors, and Realty Executives International.
The San Diego-Union Tribune published a feature article in which it referred to Jim as “an expert in a time of need” for his effective work in dealing with the (first) Short Sale crisis in 1989. Jim developed several educational offerings in the early 1990’s which included course work for real estate agents, CPA’s and attorneys. When the second Short Sale wave began in 2006, Jim was again asked to be a featured presenter to real estate agents in San Diego, Los Angeles and Riverside counties. As Windermere Homes & Estates Broker of Record, Jim provides agents with the legal support, training and resources necessary to serve their clients at the highest level.
