It likely began when Jimmy decided he wanted that motorcycle. The Honda XL80 still brings a grin to his face as he recalls riding it down the street in his football helmet.  He knew it was something he was going to have to work for and quickly Jimmy corralled friends from his neighborhood to wash cars and cut lawns.  Before he knew it, Jimmy was leading his own “operation” that likely birthed the entrepreneurial spirit that ultimately created one of today’s leading real estate teams in central Florida.  (That same spirit also eventually led to the purchase of a real motorcycle helmet.) Coincidentally, Jimmy has been exposed to the “art” of real estate and investing since he was a child. Both of Jimmy’s parents are real estate developers – his father the analyst, his mother with the discerning eye – together, a team of successful investors for over 40 years. Jimmy “inherited” the skill and passion for both and naturally navigates through the most complicated real estate ventures with seamless capability. This early exposure laid a solid foundation for an exciting career in real estate for Jimmy, yet he tempered his passion by first pursuing a sound understanding for business fundamentals and joined The Walt Disney Company.  For over 11 years, Jimmy performed various leadership roles in Florida-based Theme Park and Hotel Operations, Organizational Development, and Continuous Improvement consulting to area leadership.  With a desire to make a more personal impact on the lives of those he served, Jimmy took a leap of faith and created his own real estate team, in partnership with Keller Williams, and has been serving clients in and around central Florida since 2005. A graduate of Northeastern State University in Oklahoma, Jimmy holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology.  It is his genuine interest in understanding people that drives much of his business success. “This isn’t about helping people buy and sell a home.  This is about journeying alongside individuals as they encounter some of the greatest joys and lowest lows of their lifetimes.  It’s about being a part of their story during times of change, transition, growth, prosperity, downsizing, relocating, or facing life-changing difficulties.  It’s never just about real estate and I’m humbled to be in this trusted position.” Jimmy has been deliberate about remaining relevant and agile as business conditions constantly change in real estate.  And the industry has taken notice.  Jimmy has been  recognized by Keller Williams International with the Platinum Medallion Award and also among real estate’s Hot 100 in central Florida by Orlando Magazine.  He’s earned the esteemed Five Star real estate Agent 4 years running – an honor only 7% of real estate agents in the Orlando area can claim.   Most recently, he was recognized in Keller Williams’ Outfront Magazine as the 18th Top Producing Agent nationally for first quarter of 2013 and locally, Jimmy was the Top Producing Agent in his office at Keller Williams At The Lakes for 2012 and 2013. Contributing to these awards are Jimmy’s professional designations.  Among them, Jimmy is an elite “BOLD” Agent, Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE), and Certified Distressed Property Expert® (CDPE). Jimmy has lived in central Florida for over 20 years and not only serves investors, but invests personally as well.  A father to 2 beautiful children, Jimmy and his wife, Kristen, spend a great deal of their spare time making forts, playing games, and serving in ministries that support the growth of healthy marriages and families. “I am blessed beyond measure to do what I do.”
