Jim Eklund

Born and raised in California and having spent the last 30 plus years in the construction industry I have had the pleasure of being involved in many construction projects. From Airport and Transportation Centers to Commercial and Residential hi-rise projects. University buildings, Historic projects and yes, Custom Homes as well have been a part of my career. My experience has been far and wide with projects throughout the U.S. as well as from around the world.

After all that time having worked with so many people from all over I have learned that one of the most common things we all share is family and home. Besides our family, our home is by far one of the greatest adventures in our lives. No matter how much fun and excitement our vacations are away from home, you find yourself saying “It’s good to be home” when your vacation ends. Home, where memories are made, is one of the most emotional purchases we make in our lifetime.

I have worked with the largest and smallest firms in the world and with both I have found that honesty, integrity and professionalism are the most important virtues I have and are ones I will not ever compromise. You deserve someone who looks out for you and sees that each new adventure is the same from your first home purchase to your next.

For those who are looking to take that next step towards selling your home, purchasing that new investment property or moving up, my goals are the same to get you the best offer, and that great deal.
