Owner / Broker of Progressive Realty Corp. Past President - Ada County Assn of Realtors & Director for Idaho Assn of Realtors & IMLS. 19 years experience to help you or your clients!
Jim's background and qualifications:
Unlike many agents, I have been licensed for the past 20 years. I am a lifetime member of our associations Circle of Excellence based on past production. I have closed over 200 properties since 2001 alone! Of the nearly 100 listings I have sold in that time, I averaged 98.7% list/sales price ratio!
The best testimonial I can think of is that my peers have elected me to the following current positions within the real estate industry:
Idaho Association of Realtors - State Director 2012;
Idaho Chapter of the Council of Residential Speciailsts (CRS) - Board of Director 2012;
President of the Ada County Association of Realtors (ACAR) for 2010;

Past Chairman of the New Technology Committee for the Intermountain Multiple Listing Service
I also currently serve on the following committees:

Political Affairs Committee - Ada County Association of Realtors.
I am also a real estate instructor. I currently teach:
Employee Assisted Housing for the National Association of Realtors;
First Time Home Buyer Programs
EPRO Trainer for the National Association of Realtors
Senior Real Estate Specialists (SRES).
Broker Price Opinion Resource (BPOR)
I am a member of the Greater Boise Chamber of Commerce. My company, Progressive Realty Corporation, is an "A+" accredited member of the Better Business Bureau!
My favorite award to date is the Distinguished Service Award which recognized what I give to not only my association, but back to my community!
My marketing plans (for both buyers and sellers) has evolved from the best parts of what I have learned from my associations with Realty World, Coldwell Banker, John L. Scott, and RE/MAX franchises! I understand dozens of different loan options/programs to help buyers and sellers bridge the financial gap.
My motto is "If you had all the answers, I would be unemployed!"; so don't hesitate to call or email me with lots of questions!
Why choose me in Boise Idaho?
As a licensed Realtor for 20 years, I have helped hundreds of clients and they have referred me to hundreds more friends, family members and co-workers. I have experience most types of real estate including:
First time homebuyers (I have taught First Time Homebuyer Classes for HUD via their Finally Home Program)
Move up buyers
New Construction Sales (I have closed home with over 50 separate builders in the valley)
Custom home sales (from finding the right lot, teaming with the right builder, and completing the process);
1031 exchanges (why pay taxes prematurely when that money can keep compounding for your future)
Investment properties (I practice what I preach so I own rentals and have invested in development ground)
Development (sale of raw dirt to finished lots)
Vacation property (will be building a cabin for myself as well in the near future)
I promise to be very upfront and candid regarding any of your real estate needs. If I honestly don't think I am the best person for you, I will refer your business to another Realtor that is (at no additional expense to you)
Additional Services Offered
Remember to keep me in mind for all your referrals to the Boise Idaho area!
