6943 E 5th Avenue, Scottsdale, Arizona

Jim started his real estate career in 1985 with CB commercial real estate where he specialized in Class A office building representation. Later, he moved on to represent, on an exclusive basis, real estate projects being developed by The Symington Company. These projects included The Camelback Esplanade and Scottsdale Seville, which were two of the premier locations in Arizona.

Additionally, Jim served as an executive assistant overseeing the Arizona Office of Tourism, as well as business development for the Symington Administration. During his three years of service at Commerce, he revamped and revitalized the agency, which showed dramatic gains in performance and is now regarded as one of the most effective commerce departments in the country.

Since leaving state government in 1994, Jim has been actively involved in many facets of the real estate industry. His primary focus has been on creating interesting development opportunities as well as niche acquisitions with other partners.
