While Jim is well-versed in all stages of the development cycle, his success is largely due to the solid relationships he has developed both with city staff, designers, and planners as well as his diversified portfolio of private and public partners that bring specific experience and knowledge to his projects.

Prior to real estate, Jim started his career as an engineer and district manager in the oilfield, then as a sales manager and VP of Sales before ultimately taking on the role of president and running two different high technology companies in San Francisco.
