Jim grew up on a farm and ranch in South Dakota, driving a tractor before he was old enough to drive a car. His parents taught him that if he wanted to make something of himself, it was up to him. With a strong foundation and a passion for excellence, it's no wonder that Jim is one of the top real estate professionals in Decatur. He started in real estate in 1988 and opened his own RE/MAX office in 1991. He maintains his edge in this ever-changing business by constantly pushing himself to learn more about it and has earned the following designations to better assist buyers and sellers: ABR Accredited Buyer's Representative, CDPE Certified Distressed Property Expert, CIAS Certified Investor Agent Specialist, CRS Certified Residential Specialist, GREEN Green Property Specialist, GRI Graduate Realtor Institute, SRES Senior Real Esate Specialist, and SRS Seller Representative Specialist. Jim continues to refine his service with high-impact marketing for sellers and complete home buying services for buyers.

Jim is a great negotiator when it comes to buying a home. We got what we asked for at the price we wanted. He is very responsive and his team was working great for us. We appreciate him so much!

Jim was amazing! Very friendly and knowledgable. We wouldn’t recommend anyone else. He even painted us a house scenery on a stepping stone for our new house!
