Jim carries almost two decades of highly localized experience in the Chicago real estate market. As a co-founder of The Hudson Parker Group, Jim brings a wealth of technical experience from his tenure at the Chicago Board of Trade Clearing Corp, in addition to his Business Information Systems concentration at Loyola University.

As they felt the industry was in dire need of improvement, The Hudson Parker Group launched to highlight on client customization and customer service. The local experience Jim has as a lifelong Chicagoan, coupled with his technical background, has enabled him to sell 250 million in gross volume since the Hudson Parker Group’s inception.

Clientele demographics range from first time home buyers, property investors, and high end luxury market customers.
