Jim has fully embraced and thoroughly enjoys being a Sanmiguelense. His first excursion to San Miguel de Allende in 2002 resulted in multiple visits each year until his move here in 2011. He bought his first property in 2005, a lot, and is working on plans to build that dream home. In 2008 Jim purchased another property which also contains rental casitas.
A native of Kansas, Jim holds a B.A. in Communication from Fort Hays State University and an M.B.A. from Baker University. His professional background spans advertising, ownership in retail and wholesale/manufacturing, non-profit, and business consulting for start-ups and expansion. Prior to relocating to San Miguel de Allende, Jim was an adjunct instructor of Business and Marketing at Butler Community College, and also Director of Visitor Services, Marketing, and Sales for Exploration Place: The Sedgwick County Science Center.
Being a homeowner and landlord here in San Miguel, Jim understands the process and unique environment of real estate in Mexico. Jim listens to his clients and has the ability to view a property through the eyes of each client with their unique and specific needs in mind. As a complimentary service, he brings the skills of a professional designer to help stage your home to emphasize the best features and make it appealing to the most buyers.
An avid dog-lover with three chow chows, Jim supports local animal organizations. He is also involved in the community, lending support to human rights, health and welfare, and cultural organizations. You just might see him enjoying the opera or tending bar at a charity event!
Jim is looking forward to working with you.
