Jim provides calm, quiet and serious leadership to our Branch. He is liked by all who know him but more important he is respected by staff and sales associates. Commercial real estate is my area of practice and Jim has a good basic knowledge of the workings of leases and other components of the commercial real estate process so he can provide good guidance and assistance. Jim is quite competent in technology and that is a big help to me. Jim is willing to share his time and act as a sounding board for ideas and strategies. Jim provides thoughtful counsel on issues regarding listings, marketing and transactions.
