James grew up in North Vancouver, and no matter how many beautiful places he discovers in the World, Vancouver always pulls him back. James loves the balance Vancouver exhibits in being so multi-faceted without over-committing to one theme. As a foodie, hiker, and ocean loving urbanite he treasures having all these things at his doorstep. His favorite past times include wining and dining at the dog park at Kitsilano, jogging the Sea Wall, and tapas-bar hopping around downtown.
James got started in real estate early, growing up with REALTOR’s for parents. Darcy McClary, James’ mother has been active on the North Shore for the past 30 years, and still serves as his mentor and inspiration today. He also became a home-owner early, and currently owns 2 condos which he rents out while he grows his equity steadily.
Project Sales Manager (2014-2015 – Residences at WEST, Tower Green at WEST)
James worked as the Sales Manager for Executive Group Developement’s Residences at WEST between 2014-2015 in which time his team sold over 200 homes in False Creek. James’ time at Executive gave him invaluable insight into the fine tuning real estate marketing as well as lead follow up, negotiating complex deals, and delivering a full service right up to moving day. James was surrounded by a very talented team of marketers, and developers at Executive which continue to strongly influence James’ success to this day.
After closing the Residences at WEST, James moved his focus back to his own clients and joined with the incredibly talented Sevin Atilla and Darcy McClary. Sevin has established herself as a downtown Vancouver core expert and is used to a competitive market where multiple offers are a common occurrence. Her ability to put her client’s offer in the strongest light in competition has translated to many happy clients.
