In memory of Jim Allan Sanders - Dec. 18, 1945 to July 9, 2014

Jim Allan Sanders - RIPI just wanted to mention that my former broker passsed away this month and it was a sad time for many of us who used to work with him.  I started working at Jim Sanders Realty Inc. in April of 2003 and left in February of this year, 2014.  That was an interesting 11 years!  I learned a lot from him as he was a wise old broker and a great salesman.  He was a very generous person and a patron of the arts here on Maui.

There was a nice private memorial service for him last weekend, with many of his old friends and colleagues attending.  I think he would have been happy to see so many coming out to pay our respects.  

He was a wonderful mentor in the real estate business.  I'll think of him every time I'm working on a deal and wondering what advice he would have given me.  He always made us play by the rules and would not tolerate anything that would possibly get us in trouble.  He would not let us talk negatively about anything!  He could be harsh, but always fair.  "Firm, frank, fair and friendly"... that was one of his mottos.  Another one he was famous for... "Bop til you drop!"

Aloha Jim Sanders! You will be missed and always remembered.

So sad to hear about your former broker!! I hope that he's happy in peace and his memory will live on for many years. I've lost a few brokers that I cared a lot about and I know what you're going through...

The greatest gift you can give anyone, is to remember them, when they have passed on. You shared beautifully about the kind of man that he was.

Thank you for commenting on my post.

Georgie, this tribute is truly lovely, honest and all of the things that Jim stood for! 

I did one for my principal broker a couple of years ago (and also wrote an article for the local paper)...he was such a remarkable man, in the biz for something like 40+ years and ethical, honest and I adored him. He was like a dad to me. I still miss Derl and he truly was the reason why I ended up at Vernonia Realty. One of the most touching things he said to me was that I had been a good friend to him. He still guides me!
