James is the newest member of the Orange House team- and is excited to be part of the squad! Chad had been actively recruiting James for past two years while James was working in the corporate context. James was working in higher education most recently, with nearly a decade of experience as an academic coach serving grad and undergrad students. When Covid hit, James reprioritized his family and career so that he could have more intentional Dad time with his two kids, as well as a career that offered him a more self-driven schedule.
Seeing the success of Chad and the Orange House team in four negotiations, James became a property manager this year with Chad’s coaching and encouragement. James loves the thrill and unique challenges that unfold in each real estate transaction, working through what may seem like roadblocks to find solutions that keep you moving forward toward your home ownership goals. More than anything, though, James takes great pleasure in getting to know you and you goals clearly so that you can find the home that will be specifically tailored to you and your family!
When relaxing, James enjoys reading and film, learning something new, writing something creative, and making a wide variety of delicious meals; especially a gourmet breakfast! He also loves travel, so be sure to tell him about your favorite places and stories from there. He lived in Cambodia for over a year during his bachelor’s program studying cross-cultural communication, and has the Tetons, Alaska, Machu Picchu and East Africa (among other places) on his bucket list. If he’s not doing something on the list above, there’s a good chance you’ll catch him outdoors staying active with his wife and two kids, or enjoying an adult beverage with his family and friends.
