"James is an extraordinary agent and person. He stays on top of all the issues that relate to my needs for a new apartment as well as the dire needs for renting my old apartment. His presentation of the information about a new apartment is always honest and correct. And so is his information about what is occurring with my owned apartment, which I will see next year. His honesty, his communication skills, and his ability to understand all the dynamics related to renting out an apartment and obtaining a new one are outstanding. There isn't a better agent and that is why I continue to work with him.."

"Bought my great condo through James. He gave me better service than I ever expected. Not a first-time buyer. A really terrific investment for me and my family. Didn't start the process of looking to buy in Harlem. James was patient and realistic with me the whole way through. I ended up with a brand new spacious apt, 2 blocks from 1 subway and 5 blocks from another station. Amenities. Friendly neighbors in a real neighborhood."

"James was our primary broker in the sale of our NYC apartment. The sale process turned out even better than we ever expected and much of that was directly tied to James's tireless efforts on our behalf. From the quick response time at any hour, his strong knowledge of the apartment and the surrounding area and market, and his positive energy, we highly recommend James."
— Lisa, Williamsburg
"James listens to what you want and helps you find it. He knows NYC well and is easy to work with while apartment hunting! Whatever your needs are - let him know and he'll make it happen. Thanks, James!"

Before entering the world of real estate, James sharpened his dealmaking skills in several sales roles, while his experience as a ballroom dance instructor perfected his ability to partner with clients, think on his feet and anticipate next steps. His straightforward, competitive attitude makes him a skilled negotiator, but it is his devotion to client service that sets him apart in a crowded field. James is thrilled to help buyers and sellers across Manhattan and Brooklyn. James is a proven townhouse expert, and his skill in the new development sector is demonstrated by his leadership in selling out three Brooklyn projects. He also takes great satisfaction in navigating first-time buyers through the daunting process of finding their dream homes.
Originally from Buffalo, James lives with his wife and their young son in Hell's Kitchen, where they adore the old-school New York vibe, outstanding restaurants, and being in the heart of the city.. He enjoys relaxing with his family at their lake house, morning workouts, visiting different breweries, and taking his motorcycle for weekend rides. Whenever possible, he and his family are out exploring the different parts of New York City and everything there is to offer.
