Jim specializes primarily in the leasing and sales of office properties on behalf of private, institutional, entrepreneurial and developer clients. Active in Phoenix commercial real estate brokerage since 1992, Jim has been a consistent top producer and a recipient of numerous awards for exceptional achievement.

Best advice received: “Don’t give up and don’t listen to the critics. My dad, Jim Sr., told me this repeatedly. Early on, when I would lose an assignment or a deal would unravel, his typical response was, ‘Well, welcome to the NFL…,’ then he’d pump me up to get back out on the field.”

Biggest achievement: “Being a father to my sons, Jim III (8) and Dillon (7). They’ve both said they want to work with me in real estate … we’ll see. J III has also said he wants to win 10 Super Bowls and Big D wants to win 10 NASCAR championships. I like that they think big.”
