A lifelong resident of the Charleston Area, Jim grew up in Mt. Pleasant. He attended school throughout the area getting a strong primary education in our local districts. Attending the University of South Carolina in Columbia, Jim received a degree in English and Philosophy. After graduating from University, Jim traveled around the country looking for a place to call home, but after a few years traveling the country, Jim realized the Charleston Area was the finest place around. Though he had traveled from coast to coast, Jim realized Charleston is rare blend of culture, scenery, and history creating a uniqueness that cannot be found anywhere else.
Once Jim returned home from his travels, he spent time working in the construction field all around the tri-county area while pursuing his passion for music. Performing in the Charleston area since the age of 17, Jim performs a wide range of music in local restaurants, private events and festivals. In addition to performing, Jim educates students in Charleston in both the public schools and in private music lessons.
With his love for the Lowcountry and vast knowledge of the tri-county area, a career in Real Estate was inevitable. Working in the industry for several years, Jim developed a better concept for a real estate and property management company which could provide a better service model for his clients. 843 Real Estate was born when it was clear that his knowledge of the industry along with his innovative ideas offered a profound opportunity for his clients.
Today Jim can be seen working tirelessly in a myriad of ways across our city. He keeps investment properties lucrative, helps buyers find the home of their dreams, and provides sellers with creative and effective insight to sell their properties, all the while striving for the top level of service, honesty and integrity within the industry. When Jim isn’t helping his clients, performing music or teaching a lifelong passion for music; he is nurturing the souls of his three young children. Jim credits his success in business and life to his dedicated wife; Raleigh. While assisting Jim with day to day elements of 843 Real Estate, Raleigh has compiled a great deal of knowledge about events, activities, and overall enjoyment of the area.
