James grew up in Dundas, Ontario and spent much of his childhood enjoying the outdoors. He attended Queen’s University where he earned a Bachelor of Arts, a Bachelor of Physical and Health Education, and a Bachelor of Education degree.
James’ passion for real estate began to develop in 2007 while teaching overseas in Bangkok, Thailand. His longing to be back with his friends and family led to countless hours on real estate websites researching properties to live in when he returned to Canada. Upon his return, James began to attend weekly open houses in West Hamilton, and he purchased his first property in 2011.
During the day, James teaches Kindergarten at an inner city Hamilton school. He also finds time during the week to teach yoga at Moksha Yoga Hamilton. James plans to use the yoga principles of commitment, patience, perseverance, compassion, flexibility, and honesty to help his clients find the right property to suit their needs.
When asked what makes James ambitious, he responds saying, “I understand the emotions that go into buying, selling and leasing properties. The process can come with highs and lows and I want my clients to know that I am there for them every step of the way.”
James lives in historic downtown Dundas with his wife Karen.
