Jim's Experience!

I have owned property and have been involved in real estate for over 40 years. My experience includes various transaction types including, single family homes, multi family homes and apartment buildings in both RI and Massachusetts. Additional experiences includes 1031 Tax Free Exchanges and Condo Conversions. I have successfully completed both for myself as well as for clients.

As a realtor and investor, understanding an investor’s philosophy provides invaluable experience. What excites me the most about the real estate profession is the opportunity to create a ‘Win, Win’ situation for both a buyer and seller.

Married for over 40 years, I am a Grandfather of 3 wonderful boys. I have been involved with the community serving as the President of a Landlord Association. Locally, I was a youth sports coach and a member on a Recreation Board of Directors. I have also earned an Advocacy Award from a Group Home as well as being selected as the ‘Volunteer of the Year’ at a local YMCA.

Although I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science degree from Roger Williams University for Computer Studies, my passion is real estate. Feel free to contact me anytime on my cell at (508)558-9123. I welcome conversation and look forward to the opportunity of creating a ‘Win, Win’ for you!

Cara's Experience!

I first earned my real estate license in 2010. Shortly thereafter I moved to Utah and earned a Bachelor's Degree in Deaf Studies and worked as a Professional American Sign Language Interpreter. One of my most rewarding experiences was taking part of a team who traveled to Ghana for 4 months where we taught Sign Language to a group of students at a School for the Deaf.  

In early 2023, I sold my house in Utah and moved back to New England with my husband of 9 years and my two young boys. I now work as a Closing Coordinator and assist Jim in all aspects of representing clients. I love meeting new people and have strong communication skills which works well in the real estate profession. In addition to enjoying hiking, camping, rock climbing and traveling I have an equal love in spending time in my home with my family playing games, hosting dinner parties, decorating and making it my favorite place to be.  

As your Real Estate Agent be assured I will do everything in my power to help find you that perfect home where you can also make it your favorite place to be! Feel free to call me on my cell at (401)252-9123 anytime at your convenience. 

In Closing!

Both Cara and I welcome the challenge of exceeding your expectations as your Real Estate Advisors. In giving back, with each sale we make a donation to a local Food Pantry in the Client's Name!

What Clients Are Saying

Jim, I can't express how much I appreciated everything you have done for me and my extended family.  You have sold numersous homes for us and represented us very professionally.  Your experience and knowledge shows with each transaction.  Some of them were not so easy but you got us through.  Thanks again and I wish you the best with your new Team!   Collette!

Collette - Seller

Thank you Jim for assisting me with the purchase of my home.  As a first time home buyer, this process was very intimidating.  You provided me with a Lender and suggested an excellent Home Inspector.  After seeing many houses, I feel I purchased the perfect house for me.  Thanks for walking me through each step of the way.  You are the best!

Renee - Buyer

Jim, thank you so much for your hard work in selling our single family home.  Sophie and I couldn't express how much we appreciated you looking representing us.  We would certainly refer you to anyone looking to sell a property. Thank you again!

Tim & Sophie

Dear Jim,

I just wanted to express to you my gratitude for all of your help with my new home purchase.

As a first-time homebuyer, the process seemed quite intimidating.  But you were there for me every step of the way-- educating me, encouraging me, and answering all of my questions, no matter how small.  And you were always available for me, no matter how busy you may have been, you always made me feel like I was your most important client.  The knowledge, experience, and resources that you brought to this relationship were invaluable.  Your patience and understanding made the process so much easier, and led me to find the perfect first home.

Thank you so much for being a part of this important step in my life.

Sincerely,

Angie

Angie (Buyer)

Jim, thank you so much for being my Realtor for many years.  You have helped me build my portfolio of houses and guided me with advise many times.  Your background with multi-family homes and dealing with tenants has been invaluable for me. You provided me with advice as you saw fit with my situation.  It wasn't always what I wanted to hear but you ALWAYS have looked out for my best interest.  I look forward to working with you in the future.  Best, David!

David

I want to let you know how grateful I am for helping me sell our multi-family home.  I think what made the difference was the respect you showed the tenants during the process of the sale.  It made a sensitive transaction alot easier to deal with.  Explaining the detail and keeping everyone updated was important considering there were many visits to the property.  I would highly recommend Jim in representing a client in a sale.

Dear Jim:

I just wanted to thank you for everything you did with regard to the recent sale of my home in Tiverton, Rhode Island.

When I first met with you to discuss the sale of my property, I never imagined that we would be closing within a couple of months, especially in light of the fact that I had this home on the market with another realtor for almost a year with no serious offers.

I found your professionalism and your knowlege of the market to be outstanding.  You certainly left no "stone unturned" when it came to marketing this house and getting it sold for me.  You took what had been a very difficult process and turned it into a smooth process for me.

You were never too busy to take my calls and act upon whatever needed to be done, and I appreciate that more than you will ever know.  You really went that extra mile and that's what made the difference.

Thank you again for your professional support and your friendship.

With best regards,

Joan
