Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage
465 W Maple Ave
Vienna, VA 22180
I am the former Director of Marketing for an international consulting engineering company with offices in New York City and Washington, DC. I also have a thirty year background in electrical engineering, hospital construction and program management. I have leveraged my detail-oriented, contracting background to develop an exceptional reputation as a skilled negotiator and marketer with a keen ability to find and focus on specific target markets for my business and my clients.
I maintain a loyal network of business associates and clients through a simple, but effective business philosophy that has served me well throughout my life – "keep it…uncomplicated." I understand that life can often get complicated, or even confusing, but real estate need not be. I realize that on a daily basis, the most important part of what I do is providing information to clients & friends so they can make the best decision for themselves and their family.
Buying or selling a home, whether as a residence or an investment property, is an important decision.
Providing information about Property Value, Neighborhood Market Trends, Home Mortgages, and Income Potential is what I enjoy doing on a full time basis.
I believe strongly in giving back to the community from which I earn my living and I’m an active volunteer for community associations and a volunteer Little League Umpire (1999-Current). I have also served on the boards of several philanthropic organizations such as, Friends of Kirov Academy of Ballet, Washington, DC (President 2012-2015); Dominion Stage Community Theatre (Board Member, 2009-2012); Loudoun County Junior Golf Association (Founding President, 2003).
As a Professional Realtor®, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate throughout Virginia, but especially in Northern Virginia, and the cities/counties of:
- Alexandria City
- Northern Fairfax County (Fairfax, Fairfax City, Falls Church, Chantilly, Vienna, Oakton, McLean, Tysons Corner, Reston, Herndon)
- Southern Fairfax County (Annandale, Burke, Centreville, Clifton, Fairfax Station, Springfield, Mt.Vernon, Fort Belvoir, Lorton)
- Prince William County (Woodbridge, Lake Ridge, Westridge, Occoquan, Dale City, Dumfries, Nokesville, Haymarket, Manassas)
- Loudoun County (Leesburg, Sterling, Ashburn, Aldie, Middleburg, Hamilton, Round Hill, Purcellville, Hillsboro, Lovettsville).
It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information.
I am ready to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home.
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone with the weight and resources of an international company who publishes your listing to over 725 (documented) websites and who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
Don't let the market for your home leave you behind - Call Jim TODAY!
