Possibly a familiar face to any long term southern Alberta resident, Jim was born and raised in Calgary and may be familiar to many through a 35 year career in the broadcast industry including both CFAC radio and also your affable, trusted weather prognosticator for over two decades, on GLOBAL television.

A major career change in 2000 has taken Jim out of the spotlight and presented a brand new set of challenges. A career agent with ROYAL LEPAGE, Jim spent many years as a Recruitment Manager and trainer at Royal LePage Foothills. Our current brokerage, ROYAL LEPAGE BENCHMARK, has four decades of service to Calgary and southern Alberta and is one of Canadas most respected and successful brokerages.


The real estate MARKET is constantly changing, and employing an experienced, full time agent, familiar with the timely, relevant information on the local market swings, will help ensure that your experience will be informative, enjoyable and successful.

First we LISTEN, and answer your questions or concerns. We EXPLAIN the process so YOU know what to expect. Our TEAM is well connected with key players such as mortgage brokers, Inspectors, surveyors and lawyers. We are not satisfied until we have met or exceeded your expectations.
