Attitude, Diligence, Hustle

For almost a decade Jim has has lived and worked in Waterloo Region. After originally coming to attend Wilfrid Laurier University, Jim quickly realized that this was a place that he wanted to settle long-term! Kitchener-Waterloo has such a small town feel, but with all the amenities that you would find in the big city. After his first year of education he jumped into the Real Estate world with both feet, not only purchasing his own investment property, but starting his career by working full-time as an administrative support at Coldwell Banker Peter Benninger Realty.

Over the next couple years, he quickly established himself as a go-to staff member for many of the Realtors. After seeing how the business was done on the back-end, he felt that hecould do it better! So upon graduating, he took a brief Real Estate hiatus to hone his natural sales skills, while working for Pella Windows & Doors as an in-home sales professional. Pella offered lots of corporate training allowing him to develop into the sales professional that he is today. During his 2 year stay at Pella, he managed to become one of the top 5 Sales Representatives in Ontario and prided himself on > 90% customer satisfaction.

Real Estate had always been his calling however, and even during this time, he maintained ties with the brokerage by working closely with Darryl Watty. Now licensed, he continues working in tandem with "The Watty Way" to drive the best overall experience for our clients. Always quick to offer assistance and constantly striving to remain on the cutting edge of what is available in the market to assist our clients in making enjoyable and profitable Real Estate decisions, the best is yet to come.
