James began selling Real Estate in 1986 and he quickly became a top San Francisco Sales Producer. That same year he founded Vanguard Properties. Under his leadership and standards of excellence, it has grown to be one of the most innovative boutique real estate firms in California.

He now directs a team of over 400 talented agents and marketing professionals in 11 offices in San Francisco, Marin and Sonoma Counties, and Palm Springs who have generated more than $10 Billion dollars in home sales. Vanguard Properties’ success has established James as one of the most visionary and respected business leaders in the real estate industry today.

An intensely goal-oriented individual, James is exhilarated by the pursuit of client satisfaction, and is dedicated to providing buyers and sellers with unparalleled market insight and a higher level of personalized service. He consistently ranks within the Top 1% of Real Estate Sales in San Francisco and in California.

James credits his early success to the guidance he received from trusted and seasoned colleagues, and he’s instilled these values of collaboration, mentorship, and education into the dynamic company culture he’s created at Vanguard Properties. Every Vanguard agent is provided with ongoing training, the most current market information, and up-to-date technology so that they can deliver a consistently outstanding real estate experience to their clients.

Through his creative marketing savvy, James recognizes the importance of presenting every property to its best advantage. As a result, Vanguard’s fresh and unique approach to real estate marketing has transformed how homes are bought and sold. With an in-house team of talented photographers, graphic designers and web developers, Vanguard Properties has earned a reputation for the finest and most effective real estate marketing.

James is a member of the Real Estate Round Table, as well as the San Francisco Association of Realtors. Originally from Ohio, he earned his Bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry at UC Berkeley.
