Q&A With Jim:
WHY DID YOU BECOME A REALTOR®?
I developed a passion for Real Estate after owning seven principal residences and purchasing several income properties for myself. I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit so thought this was the best scenario to combine my passion and spirit. It was the perfect decision and I haven’t looked back since!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PART OF SELLING REAL ESTATE?
My favourite parts of selling real estate come from the interaction between myself and my client and working with them to accomplish their real estate objectives. I used to teach 1st time home buyers courses and found it fulfilling to share the excitement of the 1st time buyer. I’m competitive by nature and feel a sense of accomplishment when I can maximize my seller client’s return on their investment and find my buyer clients the ideal home and negotiate the lowest possible purchase price.
WHERE DO YOU LIKE TO TRAVEL?
I like to travel to warmer climates in the colder months and Europe in the warmer months. My favorite European trip was called the Road to Rome and started in London England went through Paris France, Switzerland, Austria and Italy (Venice, Florence & Rome). Touring the Canadian War Memorial at Vimy Ridge in France reinforcement my Canadian pride and appreciation for the sacrifice our Veterans gave.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE BOOKS, MOVIES, SHOWS, BANDS?
Hmmmmm all things relaxing….fictional books, action or drama movies and rock bands.
WHAT'S ONE THING MOST PEOPLE DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU?
One thing people don’t know about me is at the age of 16 I hitchhiked to Charlottetown PEI and back. 👍🏼
