James “J.C.” Skaggs is an east coast native who grew up in a Navy family. Born in Virginia, he primarily grew up in Maryland and on the Jersey shore, as well as in Rhode Island and Louisiana. He moved to Los Angeles a few weeks after graduating from the University of Maryland with a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre to make his home on the west coast. Drawn to California for the weather and perhaps a film acting paycheck, he also found a talent for plant-based cooking and a yen for a daily yoga practice. Early in his career—the very same week—both his yoga teacher and his manager at Compass impressed upon him their wish for him to sell “homes from the heart.” James hopes you will consider this as auspicious a blessing for you to work together as he does. Today, he makes “homes from the heart” the guiding principle in his real estate career.
