More About Me

What you can expect from me...

I believe that selling a home also means selling an experience. An added benefit to my customers is my extensive experience with home staging and redesign.
Buying a home: By listening carefully and consulting with you about what is many times our largest investment, I work with you to find the home that matches your needs and desires. This list usually includes considerations of type of home, price, location, square footage, bedrooms and bathrooms to name a few.
Whether you are buying or selling, I not only discuss the technical details with you, but also support you through the myriad of feelings you may experience at each step in the process.

Who is James?

I have always wanted to own my own business. Growing up in Springfield Oregon, I was a news carrier and later went door-to-door selling fruit & nuts grown on my parent's property. After 12 years working at Safeway grocery stores in roles ranging from cashier to department manager, I decided to start my own home management/ residential cleaning service, which I operated for over 18 years. Those 18 years were also spent staging & redesigning my clients homes as requested. I soon realized that all of my work involved delivering great service to my customers. Becoming a licensed real estate professional allows me to utilize my honesty, integrity, work ethic, and customer service skills all in one place.
