Happy Holidays!

Thanks for taking the time to visit my website! For the past twenty-five years I’ve been a Realtor with Better Homes and Gardens Mason-McDuffie in Orinda. As a California native and Lamorinda resident I love living in this area. I live a in a great location where my wife and I can spend the holidays in Lake Tahoe, admire the beautiful vineyards of Wine Country, and take a twenty minute drive up to San Francisco to enjoy all the wonderful aspects of the city.

As we start the 2014 holiday season fewer people will be thinking of real estate and that’s ok, because we use this time to focus on our families and recharge our batteries. We are already in deep preparation for 2015 with five beautiful homes coming to the market in the first quarter. We hope you enjoy the season with your family & friends. Of course, I am ready to assist you right now if time is of the essence.

Take some time to visit my website and click on the various links for more valuable information. One of the great services I provide for clients is Property First Alerts. This service is tailored to fit your specifications when looking for a new home. By signing up early you will receive e-mail notifications whenever a new listing hits the market.


Get To Know jim

I’ve been in the real estate field since 1988. As a new agent in the 80’s I started out as a strong market was ending. Since then I’ve seen ups and downs, recessions, and runaway prices increases. I feel I can offer you perspective to help you make sensible real estate decisions.  I have greatly enjoyed meeting new people and helping families and individuals start a new chapter in their lives. Give me a call today so we can get to work!  

Technology & Social Media

I enjoy staying up to date with the latest trends in technology. With work, kids, and other activities it’s difficult for clients to come in and sign all the forms that real estate requires. To make it easier for my clients we use DocuSign for eSignatures. This secure platform allows individuals to sign on a computer, cell phone, or iPad/tablet. It’s fast, convenient and very easy to use. You’re never more than just one click away from doing all of the necessary paperwork! By using electronic signature and paperless transactions, I am able to provide a faster service to my clients while maintaining a “green” eco-friendly office.
