Having worked as a licensed real estate broker in 3 states over a 15-year span, with more than $6.7 Billion in real estate advised upon, and with the experience of more than 150 completed transactions involving luxury residential, vacant land, retail, office, and industrial property types, Jim brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the real estate advisory and sales services he provides to his clients on Kauai.
Jim’s roots on Kauai date back more than 30 years, though many of those years he spent on the mainland achieving high levels of education in economics (UCSD) and law (Loyola University Chicago School of Law), as well as obtaining 8 years of big-city, high-end real estate sales experience in Chicago and San Diego. In 2014, with numerous educational and professional accolades under his belt and with his wife, Rachel, by his side, Jim relocated his professional real estate practice to the island of Kauai.
Jim now specializes in high-end residential, condo, and land sales throughout the entire island of Kauai, with particular emphasis on the north and south shores. Supported by his diverse array of professional real estate experiences, Jim is able to successfully serve a diverse range of clients. From retirees looking for a new full-time oasis to current successful business professionals seeking the luxury of a part-time second home in paradise, to investors aiming to transition the underlying asset behind their investments from the ordinary to the extraordinary, Jim embraces them all, offering each an invaluable perspective and guidance in their pursuits.
Regardless of whom Jim is serving, certain characteristics of his services remain unwavering: his professionalism, attention to detail, honesty, trustworthiness, and his dedication to placing the interests of his clients above all else. A quick perusal of the dozens of available past client reviews of Jim serves to highlight a consistent thread relating to Jim’s dependability, wisdom, and delivery of valued counsel absent any undue pressure, allowing for a stress-free home buying and selling experience.
When Jim is not working, you may find him with his wife, Rachel, and his two young boys, Luka and Koa, out and about on any of Kauai’s great beaches, hiking trails, rivers, and playgrounds.
