the Managing Broker and CEO of United Real Estate San Diego. He began his own
brokerage in 2011 after being affiliated with the largest franchisee of Century
21, where he was awarded Top Producer after just seven months. The company grew, and in 2016 became United
Real Estate San Diego after acquiring the franchise rights for San Diego.
For Jim, the most important job function he can
perform is to protect his clients. He
will always say, “My clients always want me to say that the most important
thing is to either help them buy or sell their home.” Then he points them to his record of selling at
least 20 homes per year – 10 times the average real estate professional – and
that convinces them that he’ll do that job as well. The San Diego Association of REALTORS®
recognized Jim as a Silver Award recipient in 2016 for his sales volume.
working in real estate, Jim worked in management and recruiting positions at
Scripps Health, Rubio’s Restaurants, and The Hartford Insurance. He also worked
in human resources at Point Loma Nazarene University.
Jim received a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from
the University of California, San Diego, and a Master’s degree in Business
Administration from Point Loma Nazarene University. He is licensed as a Real
Estate Broker in California and is a Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE) and a
Seller Representative Specialist (SRS). These designations are recognized by
the National Association of REALTORS®.
addition to helping buyers and sellers, Jim serves as a board member for the La
Mesa-Spring Valley school district.
In his free time, Jim spends
time with his wife Kristin and his two boys Kyle and Keaton. Their family
resides in the Fletcher Hills community of San Diego.
