About James

Meet James

I like to tell people that I started in Real Estate in the 8th Grade during the late 80's when I used to deliver flyers door to door for a top real estate agent - it was a fun job and allowed me to have some pocket money as a kid but little did I know that this will turn into my real-life passion later in life! After working in the high-tech industry for many years (Project Management Professional), I ventured into real estate both as an investor (23 yrs ago) and as a real estate agent (20 years ago), and I've never looked back! In my opinion, Real Estate is the best long-term investment tool to create wealth for life - and I've been privileged to help many wonderful clients over the years to achieve their American Dream. I built a highly qualified team over the years to make sure that we can provide our clients with the best customer experience.

My Mission is to offer luxury real estate consulting and marketing services to discerning sellers and buyers throughout San Francisco. I provide high-level advisory service and luxury home marketing campaigns to negotiate the highest possible price for our seller clients and the best possible price for our buyer clients.
