More about Jim Corbett


As a home owner in Pacific Palisades for the past 21 years, and in Santa Monica and the San Fernando Valley for 20 years before that I bring a wealth of knowledge about trends in the real estate market on the Westside and the greater Los Angeles area.  Home values vary by neighborhood and change rapidly based on mortgage interest rates and economic trends, so you need someone you can trust for a free, up-to-date information on the market and the value of your home.


Born and raised in New York, I moved to California in 1974 to attend graduate school at the University of Southern California.  With a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree, I retired from the corporate sector after 34 years of extensive experience with expertise in:  corporate finance, mortgage banking, executive administration, economic analysis, strategic planning, income taxes, business enterprise development, cost controls, divisional audits, profitability analysis, and performance measurement systems.

That experience lead to an assignment as an Adjunct Professor in the Keller Graduate School of Business and Management at DeVry University in Sherman Oaks where I have taught courses in: Personal Financial Planning, Leadership and Organizational Behavior, Securities Analysis, Mergers and Acquisitions, Managerial Finance, and Corporate Finance

In addition to holding licenses in Real Estate and Appraisal, my experience in the corporate sector led me to strengthen my service to clients by obtaining licenses in insurance, annuities, and income tax; with supporting credentials in teaching and as a Chartered Financial Consultant

Most importantly is my service to the community as a member of the Los Angeles Jr. Chamber of Commerce (Special Olympics Committee), Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce (Hosting Speed Networking Events for H&R Block income tax corporation), and as a student teacher in the USC Graduate School of Education International Study Abroad Program while serving in the U.S. Army.

Let Me Help You Buy And Sell Your Home

You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home.

When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Consult On Home Selling Tactics

Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
