If you were to ask Jim what's most import to him, it might surprise you just how quickly he would reply, being a grandfather! He would go on to include family, faith, friends, and community. But then again, anybody who knows Jim well would be quick to tell you his dedication to these things is a natural extension of his positive outlook on life in general. Jim and his wife Jackie came to Colorado Springs in 2003 to be with family. He brought with him a vast array of experience, including a brief career on active duty with US Army Security Agency and two decades of Information Technology (IT) project management. There are many qualities and skills that go into excellent project management. The most important is the ability to discover and address the diverse needs, wants, expectations, and concerns of his clients. It is this skill set that Jim uses in helping home buyers and sellers. His success comes through caring about people, together with practical experience and education. Jim knows exactly what it takes to help you meet your real estate needs. He worked with Fortune 500 companies and Mom & Pop shops providing what became known to his clients and throughout the local IT community as the Avery Advantage; providing service above and beyond what was expected. Problem solving may be the essence of project management, but the ability to listen, to get to know and understand a client and their needs, that's what brings a project to a successful conclusion. Everything Jim has done in his career has served this objective. When service members and their families relocate, the services of a real estate professional who understands their needs and timetables makes the transfer easier, faster, and less stressful. As a Military Relocation Professional (MRP), certified by the National Association of Realtors, I am trained, qualified, and eager to work with current and former military service members to find the housing solutions that best suit their needs and take full advantage of military benefits and support at any stage in the service member's military career. Real estate is not about homes, interest rates, or the economy; it's about creating relationships and serving people.
