Agent, Sales Associate
Jim earned his degree from Providence College, his career for the past 40 years was focused on insurance and securities. Jim had the pleasure of assisting clients to identify and successfully work towards their financial goals. One of his personal goals in life has been to serve and help others, regardless of socio-economic status. In April of 2013, Jim was semi-retired and relocated to Citrus County. He had planned to continue working in insurance and securities. However, his mindset began to gradually change, and he realized that he desired to serve and help others in a different capacity. Jim spent a great deal of time learning more about Citrus County and options for a second career. The phrase, “every cloud has a silver lining,” came to fruition for Jim in June of 2017. After having knee replacement surgery and being forced to relax and rest, he began to pursue a second career goal – real estate. He successfully completed all the required real estate courses and passed the state exam to become a licensed agent. Looking back, Jim believes that getting licensed in real estate was the easy part compared to choosing a real estate agency to work with, in Citrus County. He found that there are many admirable, successful, and well-managed real estate agencies spread throughout Citrus County. But he is confident that his decision to work with the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Pine Ridge Office was the best choice. The Pine Ridge Office focuses on areas throughout Citrus County, not just Pine Ridge, and include premier waterfront, golfing, and active senior communities from Citrus Hills to Terra Vista to Black Diamond. One of life’s major decisions is purchasing a home. Choosing and buying a home is meant to be a rewarding and positive experience. Jim is committed to making your home buying experience rewarding and positive by guiding you in purchasing the home that satisfies the needs and wants of you and your family. Jim is enthusiastically looking forward to working with you now or in the future.
