I believe that the key to any successful real estate venture starts with the relationship with my client. As I aim to build lasting and satisfactory connections with clients, I strive to provide the most unique and personalized real estate strategy to every single individual. My education in construction, experience, and enthusiastic dedication to you is what will set me apart from the rest.

As a graduate of Illinois State University, my education and background is extremely unique and beneficial for my clients. I started my professional career in 2002 with the second largest mid-west home building company. Through hard work and determination, I was promoted to the position of construction project manager. There I oversaw all phases of home construction including; floor plan evaluation, building codes, permitting, reading of architectural drawing, and union tradesman contract negotiations. Thus, this position gave me the exposure for upper management to select me to be part of the future leadership team. Upon this opportunity I moved over to Marketing & Sales. Finally, in 2010, I joined @properties and I am proud to say that I have enjoyed a flourishing and rewarding career since I stepped foot in these doors.

I would like to thank you for taking a look at only a small portion of what I have to offer you as a client, and trust me, it only gets better from here. With your business I will be able provide you with an even more enhanced experience for all your real estate needs. I encourage you to create an account on my website, "Like" my Facebook page, and/or follow me on Twitter if you would like to learn more about me and real estate.

Finally, I would be delighted to hear from you personally so please do not hesitate to contact me via any method of your choosing; call, text or email. Like I said, my biggest priority is you and hopes to hear from you soon!


Clients are saying:

"Where do I start with how much we appreciate Jim's expertise and ability to execute? This is the second time we have used Jim to buy a property. The first time was 5 years ago when we bought our condo. When it came to look for a single family home and sell our condo, Jim was the first call we made. Not only did he help us make the condo look amazing, he set up an open house within 24 hours when we were out of town. He then seamlessly executed a double closing that got us out of the condo and into our new home on the same day. I can't recommend Jim and his team enough! Thanks!"

"Jim was extremely helpful in coordinating both a home purchase and home sale for us. He was prompt, professional, and knowledgeable throughout the process, and we absolutely would work with him again in the future."

"Jim's experience in construction and real estate, as well as his network, makes him an amazing resource and someone I would recommend. Navigating the real estate market near the end of the season always adds risks. We had to sell a condo and find the perfect home (for us) as we tackled new responsibilities of a first-time pregnancy. Jim always listened to our feedback, but never hid from us anything he found as a positive or negative every step of the way. Whether we were walking through a listing, constructing bids, acquiring vendors, or closing on the properties, we were never left to fend for ourselves, but we always had the final say. Now we're in a wonderful home in time for holiday cheer and nesting craziness!"

"Great to work with, flexible and made himself available even with short notice."

"Jim was great to work with. He is knowledgeable and professional and was committed all the way through closing."
